DAO IPCI is a digital ecosystem, a platform addressed to any self-sufficient and responsible person actually willing to become a participant of a green market. DAO IPCI is smart contracts-based digital environment developed to minimize transaction costs, to make issuance and transfer of mitigation units, including internationally transferred mitigation outcomes, highly reliable, transparent and centralized manipulations-proof. DAO IPCI consists of a protocol, combination of smart contracts, web application (dApp), API.
DAO IPCI Minimum Viable Product is free, open-sourced, i.e. can be used and improved by anyone without restrictions or fees. The protocols designed for article 6 of the Paris Agreement and for CORSIA specifically exclude possibility for double counting of mitigation outcomes for private use and for performance under NDCs. There are no technical restrictions as to who may launch an autonomous mitigation program in DAO IPCI. Existing mandatory or voluntary, large and small programs of diverse scopes of activities and jurisdictions, as well as businesses, NGOs and even individuals may create independent decentralized autonomous organizations (DAO) to implement specific programs and projects and perform transactions in DAO IPCI. Independent mitigation programs within DAO IPCI may interlace and form a web of DAOs that share selected modules and protocols with their peers.
Stage 4: Transition to Scale
We made the worlds first carbon credit transaction in blockchain and presented our pilots in several countries (Chile, Russia, Mauritius, Kazakhstan) at COP24. We have attracted USD 400 k and now scaling the project using the SaaS business model.

Funds Raised to Date
Climate projects require large investments but suffer from lack of trust, transparency and traceability. This prevents climate markets from developing rapidly. There is also no single marketplace for green financial instruments. In the long term, environmental markets – specifically carbon markets – are poised to expand both in scale and number. It is inevitable that linkage and integration with the intention of creating a common market space with fungible instruments will be necessary.
DAO IPCI provides public blockchain infrastructure for carbon markets, and environmental market assets, rights and liabilities. The DAO IPCI design objective is to provide common space, tools and an ecosystem that is universal, reliable, easy-to-use, and transparent and that allows diverse stakeholders, including businesses and individuals, to join existing programs or launch new programs; register, transfer and trade mitigation instruments; offset collateral damage, including carbon footprint.
Businesses that wish to mitigate their damage to environment. For example large corporations that nowadays tend to switch to green production. Governments, municipalities that are initiating small&large-scale climate programs for reducing CO2 emissions, promoting sustainable energy, etc. Local communities that can get access to capital. Universities that have climate projects and wish to implement smart green campuses. Ecologically-conscious citizens that wish to participate in such programs.
Mission and Vision
DAO IPCI aims at boosting global investments in green assets in partnership with UN agencies, countries, corporations, NGOs and other organizations to reach the Paris Agreement and UN Sustainable Development Goals. While the initial objective is to provide existing markets with an open-source transparent and reliable blockchain infrastructure, the goal is also to create a way for environmental markets to evolve toward truly decentralized and free personal market choice model.
Since its establishment in 2016 DAO IPCI has been the only operating blockchain infrastructure for the global green finance instruments that pioneered the world’s first carbon credit transaction in blockchain in 2017.
DAO IPCI unique features are:
• Measurement and tracking of positive and negative environmental impact from polluters/ climate projects.
• Issuance, trade and retirement of various environmental assets (Incl. Carbon Credits, Green Bonds, RECs etc.).
• Democratizing access to green investment and assets via online DApp.
• Building linkages across markets with MITO - Mitigation Token.
• Blockchainization of corporate, regional, national and international environmental programs.
• Providing reliable framework to build various energy market applications
DAO IPCI has presented its experience at leading global climate (Innovate4Climate, UNFCCC Asia-Pacific climate forum 2018, COP23 and COP24 etc.) and blockchain (Consensus, Devcon, Ethereal Summit) events.
Planned Goals and Milestones
Q2 - Renew DApp, Develop web-site based offsetting carbon footprint program, Human-to-machine, IoT and Ethereum Net-based Verification Protocol
