About Regen Network
Agriculture, forestry, and fishing represents the vast majority of civilizations interactions with our lands and waters, and yet most of these interactions are extractive and result in ecological degradation. What would it look like if we could reverse this trend, transforming these interactions so that they are regenerative? Regen Network is a startup focused on compensating land stewards for good land management by expanding the payments for ecological services market.
We are building two core applications:
1. Regen Ledger—a Proof-of-Stake blockchain leveraging the Cosmos SDK that is focused on ecological data
2. Regen Registry—an ecosystem service credit marketplace
