A coin to reduce our carbon footprint
In the face of the climate emergency, many citizens are ready to undertake significantly more efforts to reduce their carbon footprint, but an important part of this goodwill is wasted due to lack of adequate incentives. On the other hand, most of us are remarkably responsive to anything resembling a monetary stimulus. The survcoin is a dedicated currency that builds on this responsiveness: it is paid to us as a reward in proportion to avoided CO2 emissions. These rewards thus quantify the decarbonising merit of our carbon footprint reduction initiatives.
The survcoin, which will be deployed mainly within smartphone applications, will give a playful, gamification dimension to our footprint reduction efforts thanks to emulation among peers. Defined as a reward, it plays the carrot rather than the stick and constitutes, in the face of the difficulties we face weaning ourselves off of fossil fuels, an unexplored track.
We are looking for you!
obtain and spend survcoins
launch and find initiatives, participate and join
become aware of your carbon footprint, measure it
enter decarbonisation contests with your peers
Expected benefits of the pilot project
Verify the feasibility of the concept (partners, users) on the basis of a minimal product and refine the model before deployment of the survcoin at a larger scale in 2019. In particular, the following points will be explored:
Survcoin as a common denominator in a variety of decarbonisation fields (mobility, housing, food, sharing economy ...)
Interaction between physical currencies (fitted with RFID chips) and dematerialised crypto-currencies
Valuation of the survcoin compared to conventional currencies
