Exchange Tradable Assets
AirCarbon applies traditional commodity exchange architecture to carbon credits. Traditional commodities (e.g.: corn, soybeans and crude oil) trade digital receipts representing commodities held in a warehouse. These warehouses are organized around predefined specs.
Similarly, we currently securitize carbon credits into tradable carbon asset classes. We organize credits around the markets they serve. Carbon credits held by the exchange are held in a Trust. For every credit deposited into the Trust, a corresponding one ton Token, as defined below, resides on the Exchange.
