ABOUT SWYTCH

If the scientific consensus is right, projected increases in global temperatures will create catastrophic economic and humanitarian crises. Knowing this, it is within everyone’s collective interest to reduce C02 emissions and Swytch is the key to unlocking the world’s collective potential. Swytch is a blockchain-based platform that tracks and verifies the impact of sustainability actions on C02 emissions. As a result, producers of renewable energy can “mint” new tokens based on the carbon impact of verified renewable energy production.

THE BENEFITS ARE:

  • Creates a truly global carbon market where today none exists
  • Incentivizes infrastructure development in underserved and “dirty” markets
  • Rewards individuals and organizations for making solid economic and globally responsible decisions

TOKEN HOLDERS WILL BE ABLE TO ACCESS:

  • A carbon offset attribution market
  • Network and asset production and minting dashboards
  • Energy production estimators
  • Valuable big data sets

Decentralized Algorithm for Token Allocation

HOW IT ALL WORKS

  • Uses increasingly ubiquitous smart meter technology to track and verify that renewable energy has been produced -or- another kind of sustainability action has been taken.
  • Stamps production data on the blockchain in a secure and transparent fashion.
  • Leverages the DATA oracle’s decentralized consensus algorithms and AI/machine learning to make real-time calculations of carbon displacement value and awards Swytch tokens accordingly.
  • Deposits newly “minted” tokens into owner’s wallet for carbon attribution and other uses.

4 KEY DISRUPTIONS

THE BIG NUDGE:

HOW SWYTCH TIPS THE SCALE IN FAVOR OF RENEWABLES

01

Changes Capital Allocation
Provides more tokens to areas of greatest need and impact which will alter the flow of capital across markets

02

Broadens the Carbon Market
Allows for additional actions, such as demand response, to eventually compete within the DATA “oracle” for carbon reduction rewards

03

Improves Decision Making
Generates real-time insights and aggregates valuable data to drive more efficient policies and decisions 

04

Empowers Individuals 
Offers individuals rewards and offsets they currently cannot access and places the ownership of data back into the hands of the prosumer
