We’re on a mission.

Our goals are simple.  Clean Oceans and Freshwater.  Clean Air and Soil.  Stable Weather Patterns.  Expansion of Plant and Animal Habitats.  Long-Term Sustainability of Earth’s Ecosystems.

Our strategy is to take a bottoms-up, grass roots approach in tackling the problems of global warming, deforestation, and pollution by giving individuals, businesses, governments, and non-profits the tools they need to calculate, offset, and mitigate carbon and plastic footprints within retail, manufacturing, agriculture, transportation, energy, and construction as well as personal activities unique to living standards and lifestyles.

Our Platform platform

Earthonomy™ provides the following use cases:

  • Calculate and offset annual carbon and plastic footprints for individuals and organizations.
  • Offset carbon and plastic footprints while purchasing gasoline, groceries, and other other products and services, online or offline.
  • Decarbonize the Blockchain industry by providing solutions for green mining and stake pool operations.
  • Defi products and services specifically targeting agro businesses and small farmers who strive for sustainable framing practices.
  • Carbon sequestration solutions (or Carbon Harvesting) for any private or public land owner, earning GAI for absorbing carbon.
  • Create jobs for participating in helping to reverse climate change by planting trees, cleaning up freshwater and oceans, engaging in community renewable energy initiatives, engaging in ecologically balanced farming, etc.

What is GAIA? GAIA

The Earthonomy™ Platform uses its own internal currency called GAIA, a native token of the Cardano Blockchain.  GAIA is used for the following:

  • Internal currency for
  • Carbon Harvesters, Energy Farmers, and Plastic Harvesters are paid in GAI.
  • Carbon and Plastic Offsets are paid in GAI.
  • Members may exchange GAIA between themselves or convert to Bitcoin, ADA, other cryptocurrencies, or stable coins.

How can I earn GAIA? GAIA

You may obtain GAIA through any of the following means:

  • Earning GAIA by becoming a member of
  • Earning GAIA by calculating your carbon and plastic footprints.
  • Earning GAIA by offsetting your carbon and plastic emissions.
  • Earning GAIA by completing sustainability education coursed taught through Earthonomy and participating partners.
  • Earning GAIA by reducing your carbon and plastic footprints.
  • Earning GAIA by planting trees (carbon farming).
  • Earning GAIA by becoming a Carbon Harvester (registering your land for carbon sequestering and connecting with Earthonomy BioGrid™).
  • Earning GAIA by becoming an Energy Farmer (generating renewable energy and connecting to the Earthonomy EnergyGrid™)
  • Earning GAI by becoming a Plastic Harvester (lead efforts in Cleaning up Oceans or Freshwater areas and connecting with Earthonomy Grid™).
  • Swapping out another crypto asset for GAIA within a DEX (Decentralized Exchange).
  • Exchanging GAIA with other Earthonomy™ members.  This will be available once the platform’s wallet capability goes live.
  • Obtaining GAIA as a “perk” for Delegating your Cardano (ADA) to an Earthonomy Carbon Neutral Stake Pool, use ticker symbol of ECN1.

How to delegate your ADA to a staking pool.

To generate revenue in support of operations, Earthonomy hosts multiple Cardano stake pools.  Below are some specifics regarding our stake pool strategy:

  • Those who delegate to an Earthonomy stake pool earns GAI as a reward, which is distributed every month via airdrops.
  • Each Earthonomy™ stake pool we operate is either carbon-free (uses 100% renewable energy) or carbon-neutral (contains carbon emissions, but offset through the Earthonomy™ platform).


1. Calculate Carbon Footprint
  • Register for free membership on
  • Calculate your personal carbon footprint for free.
2. Subscribe to Offset Carbon Emissions
  • Carbon footprint calculations result in a monitory value for the amount of carbon you emit in the atmosphere and is used as a basis for determining the cost for subscribing to the Earthonomy™ Carbon Offset Service.
  • Members may subscribe either monthly or annually.
  • Upon purchasing a subscription, the member officially becomes carbon neutral and is issued a digital badge which is displayed on their profile.  Their profile may be shared on 3rd party social networking sites.
3. Member Receives Carbon Neutral Certificate
  • Subscribers of the Earthonomy™ Carbon Offset service receive a digital badge (or certificate) that’s prominently displayed on their profile and may be shared with other 3rd-party social media platforms.
  • In the near future, large organizations that clear a threshold in terms of carbon offset will receive a physical plaque that may be displayed.
4. Subscription Proceeds Fund Mitigation Efforts
  • 80% of subscriptions directly funds climate change mitigation efforts, such as planting trees, land sequestration, and funding renewable energy and carbon capture projects.
  • The remaining 20% funds the platform’s operations.
5. Farmers Request and Receive Trees to Plant and Manage
  • Members who want to become Carbon Farmers and help reforest the planet may request trees to be planted.
  • Upon request, members are sent tree saplings which may be planted on member’s land or pre-approved public lands.
  • Members are asked to document their tree planting efforts through the Earthonomy™ app, which tracks who planted the tree and where via GPS.  This information is stored in the Earthonomy™ platform.
6. Farmers Get Paid for Their Efforts in GAIA, the platform’s internal currency.
  • Members are able to hold GAIA in their digital wallets hosted within the Earthonomy™ platform.
  • GAIA may be exchanged between members.
  • GAIA may be converted to ADA, Bitcoin, or fiat currencies.
  • GAIA may be used for purchasing other products or services within the Earthonomy™ platform or other technology partners such as
