|KPMG Study Highlights Bitcoin Mining's Potential to Shrink Carbon Footpr...
In a fresh analysis focusing on Bitcoin and its alignment with environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles, the 'Big Four' accounting titan KPMG delves into the digital currency's promising contributions to this movement. The professional services entity highlights four carbon-reduction techniques adopted by bitcoin mining firms across the entire mining sector. KPMG Report Discusses Bitcoin and ESG Standards
KPMG's analysis describes how bitcoin (BTC) miners, seeking proximity to inexpensive renewable energy sources such as solar and wind, reduce costs. This practice creates additional revenue to support more renewable energy projects in remote areas. The flexible computing load of bitcoin can also assist in balancing electrical grids by cutting demand during peak periods. KPMG researchers detail how bitcoin miners used a demand response system to aid Texas during a winter storm in 2021. The report states:
During Winter Storm Uri, which took place in Texas in February 2021, and saw temperatures get down as low as -14 degrees, bitcoin miners in Texas were able to curtail their energy consumption which resulted in approximately 1,500 megawatts being given back to the grid.
The study emphasizes that some miners are now recycling the intense heat generated by specialized bitcoin mining rigs to warm homes, buildings, and greenhouses. This process turns wasted heat into beneficial thermal energy, replacing more carbon-intensive heating fuels. Additionally, KPMG highlight...

|Carbon Offsetting for Blockchains and Beyond: Regen Network Launches Car...
[PRESS RELEASE - California, United States, 26th October 2022]
Regen Network Development released its marketplace application for tokenized carbon and ecological assets, Regen Marketplace. Regen Network allows carbon project developers to originate high-quality nature-based carbon credits to markets, catalyzing regenerative finance solutions to the climate crisis. Regen Marketplace takes advantage of Regen Ledger, the application-specific blockchain which brings transparency and public governance to voluntary carbon markets, built on the CosmosSDK.
Regen Marketplace is a blockchain platform for the origination, governance, and exchange of tokenized ecological assets. Climate impact projects can define, manage, mint, and sell tokenized carbon and other ecological assets in the blockchain-based registry system.
Using Regen Marketplace, blockchains and validators striving to meet their climate commitments are encouraged to purchase, transfer, retire, and bundle tokenized carbon on the blockchain for carbon offsetting purposes, effectively removing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses from the atmosphere. Blockchain dApps are encouraged to export tokenized carbon for DeFi or consumer climate impact apps.
In addition to the Marketplace launch, Regen Network will be introducing the Nature Carbon Ton to the Interchain Economy. NCT will be the first IBC-compatible carbon token for the Interchain economy by the soon-to-be launched Regen Ledger to Polygon bridge, co-implemented b...
|The Coorest Carbon Standard Now Officially Certified
PRESS RELEASE. Coorest, a Polygon-native project, is the first blockchain project to have a certified standard for carbon compensation entirely on-chain - allowing anyone with an internet connection to compensate for their carbon footprint, thereby demonstrating that the newly certified Coorest Carbon Standard (CCS) is an excellent alternative to other pre-existing standards.
As a result of the new standard, all activities related to carbon compensation must be carried out through the blockchain; this ensures that all steps of the carbon compensation process are visible at all times and the process is transparent.
The Floodlight Chainlink node introduces a new level of accountability by monitoring carbon capture projects via satellite and validating the carbon capture process with satellite data. This feature proves actual carbon capture, thereby ensuring that Coorest's carbon tokens are provably backed by absorbed CO2. Furthermore, the standard guarantees the additionality of Coorest's carbon tokens, backed by carbon capture. Before exploring the details behind the CCS, it is essential to understand what makes it a legitimate methodology for carbon compensation.
Certified by an official United Nations auditor
The CCS is certified by Earthood, an official United Nations auditor. Earthood recognises Coorest's CO2 tokens as a valid carbon compensation method.
The methodology of CCS includes a strict set of rules for carbon capture projects. Among these is the requirement for th...
|Polygon Banks On Merge To Get Rid Of 60,000 Tons Of Carbon Footprint
Polygon expects to eliminate a considerable amount of carbon traces from its system as the Merge nears.
The Ethereum Merge is just around the corner. With a soft deadline set on September 15, the world will soon find out whether or not the developers' hopes for a positive change are realized.
The Ethereum-based Polygon blockchain will also undergo changes as a result of the Merge. In a nutshell , the Merge is the transition from Proof-of-Work (PoW) to Proof-of-stake (PoS). With this update, the Ethereum network should use less energy in the future.
If you take Chile's annual electricity consumption of 77.53 TWh and apply it to the current annual electricity usage of the Ethereum network, you get a pretty good idea of how much power is being used.
Polygon's Burden: Cutting Carbon Footprint
The network's carbon footprint is comparable to that of Hong Kong (which is 43.24 MT CO2), so it's quite sizable.
Based on research by Polygon, the network is responsible for 0.48 percent of Ethereum's total carbon footprint of 12,721,000 metric tons of carbon equivalent. This estimate is valid for the period beginning in August 2021 and ending in July 2022.
That's the equivalent of creating 60,930 tons of carbon dioxide. Polygon also mentioned the difficulty in doing so, noting that it must also factor in the emissions of its L1 chain.
As a result, the progress Ethereum has made toward a (almost) emission-free system will have a significant effect on Polygon's emission rates.

|Polygon's MATIC Surges 27% On Carbon Neutrality News
According to CoinMarketCap, the Polygon (MATIC) value was increased by nearly 27% to $0.55 within 24 hours after Polygon's news of being carbon neutral. However, the coin is still on an upward trend, and as of the time of writing, it was trading at $0.60.
The price is still below what it was at the beginning of the month when it was trading at $0.66, but considering the market downturn, MATIC's price gain is sending out a positive vibe. On the other hand, the leading cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin and Ethereum, saw a week's decline. In addition, Having peaked at $2.92 on December 27, 2021, Polygon has since plummeted nearly 80%. Although it is still 50% higher than this month's low of 0.31 on June 18.
MATIC was first created on top of the Ethereum Network and is now enhanced with Plasma-based side-chains to guarantee asset security. The main objective of MATIC Network, which calls itself a blockchain-agnostic Layer-2 scaling solution, is to enable scalable, quick, and safe blockchain transactions.
MATIC is currently trading at around $0.6 on the hourly chart | Source: MATIC/USD price chart from Tradingview.com
The Main Factor Driving Polygon's Matic Value Upward
Mainly two catalysts appear to be the reason for Polygon's increasing value. Nevertheless, the most important one is Polygon's recent announcement that it has retired $400,000 worth of carbon credits, turning the company carbon neutral.
The value of its native token has increased significantly as a result...

|One River Carbon Neutral Bitcoin ETF Trust Denied by the SEC
The United States Securities and Exchange Commission continues to deny applications for Bitcoin ETFs. The latest one is the proposed rule change to list and trade shares of the One River Carbon Neutral Bitcoin Trust.
The SEC has denied yet another application to launch a Bitcoin ETF. On May 27th, the Commission issued a notice rejecting the proposed rule change to list and trade shares of the One River Carbon Neutral Bitcoin Trust under the NYSE Arca Rule 8.201-E.
The notice details that the main reason for the rejection is that the proposed rule change fails to meet its burden under the Exchange Act and the Commission's Rules of Practice.
More specifically, the watchdog outlined Section 6(b)(5) and precisely the requirement that the rules of a national securities exchange be 'designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices' and 'to protect investors and the public interest.'
The SEC outlined that this is the same reason it has been rejecting other spot Bitcoin ETFs and also said that for it to approve one:
'... an exchange that lists bitcoin-based exchange-traded products can meet its obligations under Excange Act Section 6(b)(5) by demonstrating that the exchange has a comprehensive surveillance-sharing agreement wit a regulated market of significant size related to the underlying or reference bitcoin assets.'
While expected, the SEC's decision hasn't deterred other big names to file for a spot Bitcoin ETF.

|China Mining Ban Worsened Bitcoin's Carbon Footprint, Study Claims
Contrary to some expectations, Beijing's crackdown on the crypto mining industry has increased Bitcoin's carbon emissions, researchers have alleged. Leaving China, miners also left behind its eco-friendly hydropower and are increasingly relying on energy generated by fossil fuels, they claim.Bitcoin Mining Allegedly Less Green Since Miners' Exodus From China
Cryptocurrency mining has become a dirtier process after the Chinese government effectively prohibited bitcoin extraction in the People's Republic, according to research published in the Joule journal. The share of renewable energy used to power mining operations has fallen from almost 42% to around 25% last August, the study insists.
It has been estimated that Bitcoin produces more than 65 megatons of carbon dioxide annually. The amount exceeds the total carbon emissions of a country like Greece, for example, which in 2019 registered less than 57 megatons of CO2. One of the authors, Alex de Vries, told the BBC:
We see the network becoming less green than ever before.
Speaking to Bloomberg, he elaborated that the relocation of mining companies to other countries such as the United States and Kazakhstan has led to a reduction in the use of renewable energy sources. This made bitcoin production less friendly to the environment as it resulted in the increase of its carbon intensity by about 17%.
