Taking Forward Carbon Credits Off-Chain

Solid World enables project owners who have bought the project credits to take their forward carbon credits off-chain, making the forwards attractive for clients who don't like blockchain. To initiate this process, project token holders need to contact us at carbon@solid.world or reach out to us in our discord by opening a help ticket.

Upon receiving the request, Solid World facilitates the transfer by burning the project tokens and notifying the supplier of the contract transfer, with guaranteed delivery (and insurance, once available in the future. Following the transfer, the counterparty for the buyer becomes the supplier, ensuring a seamless off-chain ownership experience.

Settlement process from forward to spot

If the buyer owns the underlying contract off-chain

If the buyer owns the underlying contract themselves or utilizes a third-party custodian, the settlement process involves notifying the supplier of the spot credit request. The buyer communicates their intention to convert the forward carbon tokens into spot credits, and the supplier is responsible for transferring the spot credits directly to the buyer's designated account or the custodian's account. This ensures a secure and efficient transfer of the spot credits, completing the settlement process.

project-specific the buyer owns the project specific tokens

In the scenario where the buyer owns the project-specific token, the settlement process may depend on the availability of on-chain solutions provided by platforms like Toucan, C3, or other service providers. Solid World anticipates the development of such solutions that can seamlessly accept forward delivery and facilitate the conversion of project-specific tokens into spot credits. As these on-chain solutions evolve, Solid World aims to collaborate with industry partners to integrate their services, streamlining the settlement process and ensuring a straightforward transition from project-specific tokens to spot credits. This ongoing collaboration will provide buyers with enhanced flexibility and accessibility in settling their forward carbon contracts.
