CALGARY, AB, May 31, 2022 /CNW/ - DeepMarkit Corp., ("DeepMarkit" or the "Company") (TSXV: MKT) (OTC: MKTDF) (FRA: DEP), a company focused on transitioning the global carbon offset market to the more accessible digital economy by minting credits into non-fungible tokens ("NFTs"), is pleased to announce that it has signed a non-binding Letter of Intent ("LOI") with Climate Carbon – a private carbon credit broker-dealer start-up from Vancouver– pursuant to which the entities have agreed to collaborate in order to scale the growth of voluntary carbon credits minted on the platform.

DeepMarkit Corp. (TSXV: MKT, OTC: MKTDF, FRA: DEP) (CNW Group/DeepMarkit Corp.)

Climate Carbon and DeepMarkit will work to enter into an arrangement pursuant to which Climate Carbon will refer carbon projects to mint NFTs (ERC-1155) and/or other carbon credit tokens (ERC-20) on the platform. Through the creation of NFTs and tokens, Climate Carbon will have ownership of the NFTs and tokens. All carbon projects introduced by Climate Carbon to the Company shall be subject to acceptance by the Company.

DeepMarkit and Climate Carbon will proceed toward the preparation and execution of a definitive agreement in the near future with a two-year term based on the key terms contained herein. The Company and Climate Carbon will work together to achieve a second stage proofing of the platform as well as an NFT market exploration and validation program. A total of 850 active carbon offset credits from six Verra-certified projects have been transferred by Climate Carbon to DeepMarkit's custodial account and will be minted into NFTs. The projects include:

  • Soubre Hydropower Project;
  • Sena Hydroelectric Power Plant;
  • ONIL Stoves Guatemala Uspantan;
  • Forest Management to Reduce Deforestation and Degradation in Shipibo Conibo and Cacataibo Indigenous communities of Ucayali region;
  • Grid connected bundled wind power project in Gujarat managed by Enercon (India) Limited; and

"Climate Carbon recognizes the need to expand access to carbon credits if the world wants to hit net zero. Bringing credits to the blockchain makes sense as a step in the right direction for diversifying carbon markets," said Danny Takhar, Founder and Director of Operations of Climate Carbon.

"DeepMarkit's platform,, is designed to ensure tokenization is based on active carbon credit NFTs. So far, our testing has shown that the platform is robust and scalable. However, expanding our testing and validation efforts to this second stage with Climate Carbon is expected to provide further proof of the effectiveness of DeepMarkit's innovation. Our Company has received worldwide interest from customers to use platform. We look forward to completing this next level of testing and commercially launching the platform," added Ranjeet Sundher, Interim CEO of DeepMarkit.

As background, the NFT minting process for an offset credit is initiated by confirming and authenticating the credit on a carbon project registry. Upon verifying the credit's authenticity, the user is then approved to mint the carbon offset credit into a verified NFT through the platform. Once minted, the user can hold, sell or retire their carbon credit NFT. A holder of an active carbon credit can retire it via a retirement contract on the platform. Retirement takes place seamlessly on both the blockchain and on the authenticating registry.
