LCO2

High-quality portfolios of carbon credits

Liquid Carbon Tokens(LCO2)

LCO2 are carbon portfolio tokens representing a pool of premium carbon credits. The LCO2 token aims to be the ultimate carbon asset for compensating carbon footprint, trading, and investing purposes, backed by a portfolio of high-caliber projects that contributes to our planet’s preservation.LCO2 token offers the added benefit of risk diversification, as one LCO2 token includes 10 different carbon projects.

1 LCO2 token is backed with 1 tonne (1000kg) of CO2 sequestered from the atmosphere.

All environmental real-world data from the carbon credits are transferred to blockchain from Climate Action Data Trust (CAD Trust) which is a global platform that links all and aggregates all carbon credits data from project registries to one decentralized metadata platform.

We use Chainlink's oracle service to pull the data from the CAD Trust to our smart contracts to ensure that all carbon credit data is correct and that the correct amount of carbon credits are issued on blockchain
