ReFi Roundup #33: Senken launch, Greentrade raise, GR15 & biochar dMRV
Hey ReFi Nation! 👋
John Ellison here getting the ReFi Roundup over the line after another abundant week at the intersection of regeneration and web3. It's been a beauty.
Imagine this: Next time you read ReFi Roundup will be post-merge. 😱
Let's keep our fingers crossed and hopes all goes according to plan!
Here's a quick recap of what happened in ReFi this week, followed by a short stint of ReFi Bites and ReFi Events!
Carbon marketplace landscape 🔥
We've seen Adrian from Senken launch their carbon marketplace as well as Frederick from Greentrade announce their pre-seed led by Cerulean providing pressure on the carbon marketplace landscape.
Quadratic lands open up 🏞
GR15 kicked off with over $2.7M of match funding featuring 30 founders from the ReFi Summer cohort and a strong emphasis on digital measurement, reporting, and verification.
Biochar dMRV 📐
The largest carbon project developer, South Pole, and Carbonfuture partner to scale up biochar projects with digitised monitoring and reporting off the back of Verra's biochar methodology which seems to have boosted CDR market sentiment.
