The Dad Dive – April 22, 2022

It’s no secret that cryptos are not exactly climate-friendly. Now, crypto start-ups are trying to go green. However, that might not work out in the earth’s best interests. 

This FT article says, “Eager to capitalise on rising prices and wider calls for a global transition to cleaner economies, crypto traders have scoured the carbon market for older, cheaper offsets to buy and tokenise — uniting the two unregulated markets of digital assets and carbon offsets.

“…Such activity has worried climate experts. Gilles Dufrasne, policy officer at Carbon Market Watch, said he was concerned the new system would end up “laundering” poor quality offsets. Users who wanted to use tokenised credits to offset their emissions might forget, or not know, that the underlying units were “junk,” he said.”

What Doesn’t Glitter is Likely Not Gold

In March 2021, Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey created an NFT (non-fungible token) of his first tweet. It sold for $2.9 million. The buyer relisted it for sale a year later. It will likely not sell for over $14,000. That’s a loss of almost $2.9 million. Sometimes, lessons have to be learned the hard way.
