Introduction

In the world of carbon offsetting, Carbonable introduces an innovative approach through the concept of farming. This unique farming system represents the tokenization of the project’s real absorption of carbon, revolutionizing the way we address climate change.

What is farming for Carbonable?

Carbonable farming serves two primary purposes :

Generating Resale Value: It allows for the generation of value through the resale of carbon credits, in the form of an Annual Percentage Rate (APR). By effectively selling the carbon credits back on the market, Carbonable not only incentivizes individuals and organizations to participate but also ensures a continuous cycle of carbon offsetting.

Retiring Carbon Credits: Carbonable farming enables the retirement of carbon credits. Through this process, the project actively offsets its carbon emissions, contributing to a net-zero carbon footprint. By retiring these carbon credits, Carbonable demonstrates its commitment to mitigating environmental impact and sets a powerful example for other initiatives to follow.

The farming system implemented by Carbonable has the potential to make a significant impact on the carbon market. By tokenizing decarbonization projects and creating a sustainable funding model, Carbonable offers a practical solution to combat climate change.

For more details on the different forms of farming, please refer to Appendix A at the end of this article.

What can you do with farming from Carbonable?

In the realm of Carbonable farming options, be it for Resale or Offset, there exist three fundamental actions that holders can do:

  1. Deposit: The initial step involves depositing a portion or the entirety of your farming rights for a specific project. This deposit serves two purposes: Receiving the underlying Carbon Credits, for resale purposes or offset purposes, or a combination of both!
  2. Withdraw: You can opt to withdraw a fraction or the entirety of your farming rights from the project. This withdrawal can be performed for both the Resale and Offset options, depending on your deposited positions.
  3. Claim: After the deposit and the effective farming, you have the opportunity to claim your rewards, contingent upon the chosen option. These rewards can take the form of Stablecoin (USDC) for the Resale option, or a certificate of Offsetting, validating your contribution to carbon reduction efforts.

By understanding and skillfully maneuvering these key actions, participants can make the most of their farming endeavors, whether it be in pursuit of financial gain or the noble cause of offsetting carbon emissions.

Annex A — What is farming

Farming in the context of Blockchain refers to the process of staking or locking up cryptocurrency tokens in smart contracts for earning rewards. There are different types of farming and here are some of them.

Liquidity mining

Liquidity mining involves earning rewards for providing liquidity to a liquidity pool on a decentralized exchange (DEX). In return for providing liquidity, users receive a share of the transaction fees generated by the exchange, as well as additional rewards in the form of new cryptocurrency tokens.

Staking

Staking involves holding a cryptocurrency in a Node (it own Node or by delegation) to participate in network validation and security and then earn rewards from the network.

NFT farming

NFT farming involves earning NFTs as rewards for participating in DeFi protocols or for providing liquidity.

Governance farming

Governance farming involves earning governance tokens that allow holders to participate in the decision-making process of a DeFi project (as Curve protocol).

This process can be used to earn passive income on cryptocurrency holdings, as well as to support the efficiency of decentralized financial markets.
