Polygon-Powered Coorest Earns Web3’s First Certified Carbon Standard

Polygon Weekly Recap Week 40 (29/9 - 05/10) - 4

Polygon-based carbon compensation project Coorest has become the first Web3 initiative to have an officially verified carbon standard.

The Coorest Carbon Standard (CCS) is certified by an official UN auditor and is a new benchmark for CO2 compensation that leverages distributed ledger technology to eliminate unfair and opaque carbon offset practices. 

In partnership with Polygon, Coorest is redefining how people and organizations can effectively account for their carbon footprint and bring about impactful change for a better tomorrow. 

Coorest is building a decentralized ecosystem for carbon emission compensation on Polygon’s climate-friendly network. NFTrees is a project by Coorest which creates $CCO2 tokens that can be sold or used as a carbon compensation by linking them to real-world trees.

Polygon has integrated Push Protocol

Polygon Weekly Recap Week 40 (29/9 - 05/10) - 6

Polygon has integrated Push Protocol, previously known as Ethereum Push Notification Service (EPNS). This will enable seamless, web3-native communication to thousands of Polygon apps and millions of active users.

Enhancing user experience is critical for rapid mass adoption of Web3 products and services. Integrating Push Protocol addresses the lack of communication between apps and users. Thus improving the overall user experience in Web3.

37K+ apps are built #onPolygon! 

It is an opportunity to create custom communication channels and user-based messages that users, developers, and stakeholders will benefit from.
