SELECTED PROMPTS & BOUNTIES

We are providing different challenges for you to solve. You can choose the climate that you are most passionate about and work on one of its specific promts, or tackle a specific technical bounty.

 DOMAIN-BASED PROMPTS 

EARTH SYSTEM STATE
  • Earth's Carbon Ledger — Build a near real-time atmospheric carbon budget counter with decentralized scientific consensus. See Prompt >

WORLD SYSTEM REGISTRIES
  • The Paris Smart Contract Agreement — We started to transcribe the Paris Agreement into an Ethereum-based solidity smart contract. Improve & extend it!. See Prompt >
     

  • Spatial contracts for Nested Accounting — Develop metadata schemas and contracts so that the mitigation and adaptation outcomes of non-state actors —like cities, companies and individuals— can be included and accounted under the respective Nationally Determined Contributions where they are retire. See Prompt >
     

  • Global Meta Registry — Our partners  began developing a global climate warehouse to host the global mitigation outcomes that could be traded under article 6 of the Paris Agreement. See the architecture and contribute. See Bounties >

CLIMATE ACTION CERTIFICATION
  • Energy & Carbon Oracle servers — Use data science and machine learning to build an open oracle that can cross-verify both the energy data used to certify renewable energy credits, and calculations for displaced carbon associated to it. See Prompt >
     

  • Land-based mitigation certifications — Work with partners to link remote sensing data for the process of Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) of land-based mitigations. See Prompt >
     

  • Adaptation certifications — Work with prompt partners to implement protocols for climate vulnerability reduction and project tracking for adaptation certifications. See Prompt >

NETWORKED CLIMATE MARKETS
  • Fungibility contracts in Networked Climate Markets — Design smart contract that can allow interoperability between digital assets of climate mitigations so that they may operate in different international markets. See Prompt >
     

  • ITMO TerminalArticle 6 of the Paris Agreement allows for the international transfer of mitigation outcomes so that parties can collaborate on their 'NDC'. Design a prototype of an investment and trading 'Terminal' that can act as a one-stop portal  See Prompt >

CLIMATE FINANCE
  • Climate Bond platform — Climate bonds are a great financial instrument to help fund mitigation and adaptation actions. Propose a platform the can streamline the issuance and monitoring of bonds. See Prompt >
