    John Ellison and Johnx25bd are joined by Courtney and Gordon for an insightful, exciting and deepening conversation about New Atlantis DAO. The two successful entrepreneurs have founded New Atlantis DAO with the goal of enabling the protection and regeneration of the Ocean. Through pioneering metagenomic data sampling the aim is to create a biodiversity market that will fund the regenerative projects that are sorely needed to secure the World's largest biome and carbon sink.

    Scaling Carbon Markets with Dana and Phil from Flowcarbon

    Scaling Carbon Markets with Dana and Phil from Flowcarbon

    John and Simar are joined by Dana & Phil from Flowcarbon and have a great chat about how their backgrounds led to the inception of Flowcarbon, the amazing work they've been doing to help project developers on the ground. The public consultation they've been leaning into and devoting so much time to with all the different voluntary carbon market participants. The background work that's gone into the new centrifuge pools for carbon forward projects, and what they expect to happen in the next six months for tokenizing assets and entering a new era of a liquid supply of carbon credits flowing both on and off-chain.
