DOVU Certificates: Carbon offset you can trust
Healing the planet is a 24/7/365 operation and we get this. That's why we're moving fast. Time then to tell you about the imminent release of our Carbon Marketplace with its unique DOVU certificates.
Anyone who offsets their carbon using cDOV will receive a DOVU certificate. Thanks to Hedera Hashgraph, users can enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing that carbon has been successfully retired. They'll have an immutable record to show anyone and everyone who asks to see it.
Let's follow this journey. A user picks out a carbon capture project. They purchase cDov through Stripe and dive into the ecosystem. From the off, they can see the certificate for offsetting their carbon footprint.
They'll also receive an email confirming the retirement amount (in tonnes) alongside a link to view their certificate of proof.
Only authenticated users will have access to their own certificates on the platform. What's more, users can download and verify individual certificates allowing them to share the vital carbon-capturing facts with trusted third parties.
Each profile will house an option to add a company. This means businesses can feature on certificates and, in doing so, proudly demonstrate they're taking appropriate steps to become more environmentally friendly.
So how does this work?
DOVU uses Hedera's proof-of-stake network. We consider it to be the perfect environment to issue tokenized carbon credits to any person, business, or government in an inexpensive and sustainable manner.
This means anyone can get involved in funding projects which remove, capture, or sequester carbon from the environment.
So how can we prove all of this?
This is where Hedera Hashgraph effortlessly leaps the fence and starts confidently striding across the field. It's role is to ensure that the location and carbon quantity are publicly verifiable. What you see is what there is.
Once completed, an NFT is minted. This represents the proof of carbon in the ground. From here, it can be placed for sale on the DOVU marketplace for crypto types to snaffle it up and do their bit for humanity.
Baked into each DOVU certificate will also be a QR code containing a Hedera State Proof which clients can use to request a record of the transaction.
These state proofs provide additional cryptographic verification that the data is legitimate.
A Hedera State Proof data structure is returned as part of a query response therefore validating the information.
As each state proof will be cryptographically signed by a super majority of the network, users can rest assured in the security.
