MKTDF participated as a partner-level participant alongside Flowcarbon Inc. (“Flowcarbon“) at the “ReFine Our Future: An Immersive Flowcarbon Event” (the “ReFi Event“) that was held on July 20, 2022, on the Loho Rooftop in Paris, France. The event occurred concurrently with the 5th Annual Ethereum Community Conference (the “EthCC“) that took place from July 19-21, 2022.
DeepMarkit was in attendance to share information about its MintCarbon.io platform, as well as foster the ongoing development of the strategic relationship between the Company and Flowcarbon, among other opportunities. The ReFi Event featured a gallery of carbon credit NFTs that have been minted via the Company’s proprietary MintCarbon.io platform. The event pulled together many experts and an interactive experience that highlighted novel ways to drive capital to carbon projects.
“We appreciated participating as a partner alongside Flowcarbon at the ReFine Our Future experience in Paris. Having our carbon credit NFTs be featured in a gallery at the ReFi Event was surreal, now that our MintCarbon.io platform has been tested and audited for secure use,” said Ranjeet Sundher, Chief Executive Officer of DeepMarkit. “We continue to enhance MintCarbon.io, onboard carbon credit NFTs, and build both supply-side and demand-side relationships globally. We look forward to exploring more opportunities with Flowcarbon in the future and also growing our relationship as we are both aiming to help reduce the global carbon footprint through our similar corporate missions,” added Mr. Sundher.
“We are excited to have DeepMarkit and MintCarbon partner with us to put on the ReFine Our Future Event. We believe that working collaboratively with others building in the Web3 x Carbon space will strengthen and grow the entire industry. We loved collaborating with them as their proprietary platform instills the same ethos as Flowcarbon, valuing accessibility at the forefront of its project – for everyone, everywhere, at any time. We are stronger together!” said Phil Fogel, CBO of Flowcarbon.
Flowcarbon is using blockchain technology to address some of the systematic challenges in the voluntary carbon market, in particular, facilitating early and efficient access to capital for project developers, and creating tokens backed by carbon credits to facilitate liquidity, accessibility, and transparency in the spot market for carbon markets. It recently raised US$70 million from a group of investors that included, but was not limited to, Andreessen Horowitz’s crypto arm known as a16z, General Catalyst Partners, Samsung Next, Invesco Private Capital, 166 2nd Financial Services, Sam and Ashley Levinson, Kevin Turen, RSE Ventures, and Allegory Labs LLC.
DeepMarkit Corp. (TSXV: MKT) (OTC: MKTDF), is a company focused on democratizing access to the voluntary carbon offset market by minting carbon credits into tradeable NFTs. DeepMarkit’s primary asset, MintCarbon.io, is a web-based, software-as-a-service platform that facilitates the minting of carbon credits into NFTs (based on the ERC-1155 standard) or other secure tokens (based on the ERC-20 standard). ERC-1155 tokens allow carbon project owners to better communicate their stories to the public by embedding detailed information such as images, video, and project descriptions. The MintCarbon.io platform will act as a portal to allow anyone with an internet connection to access project profiles and give corporations as well as the general public an opportunity to link to any decentralized exchange in order to buy or sell the token associated to the underlying, verified carbon credit.
DeepMarkit Corp is preparing for a commercial launch of its platform MintCarbon.io, and anticipates generating revenue through minting fee’s and royalty payments that can be triggered when a tokenized carbon credit is traded.

On June 29th MKTDF highlighted its most significant developments from the first half of 2022. Additionally, MKTDF observed the growing industry consensus of the blockchain becoming a critical tool for transitioning the world’s antiquated carbon trading systems into the modern age.

In a recent blog article on Shell Climate Change about carbon emissions and NFTs, several solutions are proposed that could see carbon offset NFTs make carbon-based budgeting more of a reality. Given that carbon markets require a mechanism to track creation, ownership, and retirement of emission reduction units, as enabled by an effective trading system, all in order to be optimized, MKTDF management has seen the blockchain as a natural fit for the industry since inception. The MKTDF view is that there is a lot more to carbon credits than simply commoditizing them into tokens. The carbon offset NFTs (ERC-1155) minted on its MintCarbon.io platform allow project owners to embed and share additional information about their projects, including co-benefits, graphics, artwork, videos, and project descriptions, thereby adding more meaning and utility as compared to other similar tokens. Via MintCarbon.io, a project’s complete profile and story is expected to be easily viewed, shared, and linked to any blockchain-enabled marketplace such as OpenSea or Rarible.
As MKTDF continues to advance MintCarbon.io with the aim of being an industry leader in the minting of carbon credits into NFTs, it is reassuring to see that the industry is advancing in the same direction and that momentum is building to adopt these types of solutions. A broad and collective effort is needed in order for the world to effectively achieve emissions management. Accordingly, MKTDF expects carbon credit NFTs to play a key role in helping both companies and individuals to operate and exist within a carbon-based budget long into the future.
“DeepMarkit has come a long way in only half of a year and I am proud of the team’s accomplishments so far in 2022. Our team has been diligent in successfully addressing industry concerns, such as zombie credits, double counting, and the lack of price transparency, all in order to develop and deliver the most robust platform possible. To date, the industry has responded positively to our mission and we are looking forward to updating our shareholders as we prepare for commercial launch,” said Ranjeet Sundher, Chief Executive Officer of MKTDF.
“The concept of minting carbon offset credits into NFTs is becoming a reality and DeepMarkit is emerging as a leader in the space. As the industry evolves, improves, and grows, we are pleased to see certain developments occurring to clarify and support a better path forward for project owners, credit holders, platform users, and other stakeholders. I would like to thank our shareholders for their strong support thus far and we are excited to see what the future holds for the Company and the industry as a whole,” added Mr. Sundher.
