DeepMarkit Successfully Tests and Mints Carbon Credit NFTs via its MintCarbon.io Platform
We have another exciting play for Today for you to take a look at. The spread on this one was EXTREMELY thin yesterday. MKTDF just completed a 4-1 forward split on the 5th of this month. I am guess that is why the bid and the ask were far apart. It look like it is trying to find a home trading range.

DeepMarkit Successfully Tests and Mints Carbon Credit NFTs via its MintCarbon.io Platform
• Carbon Credits were Sourced from Two Wind Projects and a Landfill Project, all Authenticated on the Gold Standard and Verra Registries
• Three Scenarios of Retiring, Claiming and Holding a Carbon Credit NFT Were Successfully Tested via the Company’s Platform
• The Retirement Contract was Deployed on Polygon’s Lower-Emission Blockchain
Calgary, Canada – May 12, 2022 / CNW / – DeepMarkit Corp., (“DeepMarkit” or the “Company”) (TSXV: MKT) (OTC: MKTDF) (FRA: DEP), a company focused on transitioning the global carbon offset market to the more accessible digital economy by minting credits into non-fungible tokens (“NFTs”), is pleased to announce it has recently undergone and successfully completed three different scenario-based tests (the “Minting Tests”) to mint carbon credits into NFTs via its MintCarbon.io platform. The Minting Tests were conducted in order to confirm the core functionality of the MintCarbon.io platform, which is nearing commercial launch.
As background, the NFT minting process for an offset credit is initiated by confirming and authenticating the credit on a carbon project registry. Upon verifying the offset credit’s authenticity, the user is then approved to mint it into a verified carbon credit NFT through the MintCarbon.io platform. Once minted, the user can hold, sell or retire their carbon credit NFT. A holder of an active carbon credit can retire it via a retirement contract on the MintCarbon.io platform. Retirement takes place seamlessly on both the blockchain and on the authenticating registry. When the underlying carbon credit is retired, the NFT’s residual value can become a function of the market’s perceived worth of its artwork and its underlying project details.
“These three successful minting tests are the final major step before being able to launch the MintCarbon.io platform on a commercial scale. The retirement, claim and hold scenarios demonstrate the versatility and optionality available to users of our platform. These successful trials showcase that we are able to deliver on our promise of bringing increased transparency and liquidity to the carbon credit markets in a fast and effective manner,” said Ranjeet Sundher, Interim CEO of DeepMarkit.
Carbon credits from the following projects were selected to be minted into NFTs:
• Fulton County Mud Road Landfill Carbon Project in the United States;
• Wind Power Project in Karnataka, India by OMWPL; and
• VTRM Renewable Energy Project in Minas Gerais, Brazil.
The Minting Tests consisted of three different scenarios – retirement, claim and hold – and involved the Gold Standard and Verra registries. The Minting Tests were also designed to evaluate the versatility and ease of use of the MinCarbon.io platform, as well as the compatibility of the MintCarbon.io platform’s software with the registries and the blockchain. Once minted, the carbon credit NFTs were then placed for sale on OpenSea.io and Rarible. In each test case, the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, First Carbon Corp., obtained the underlying carbon credit in its account at the respective registry, with beneficial ownership remaining with each respective owner.
Test Scenario 1 – Retirement
Retirement Test Buyer purchased an active carbon credit NFT from the Fulton County Mud Road Landfill Carbon Project certified by Verra on OpenSea (OpenSea Listing). They then desired to retire the active carbon credit NFT to offset one tonne of carbon emissions. Retirement Test Buyer sent the active carbon credit NFT to the retirement contract (polygonscan). Then, they received a retired carbon credit NFT on-chain (OpenSea Retirement). The Fulton County Mud Road Landfill Carbon Offset Project carbon credit was confirmed as retired by the Verra registry (Verra Retirement).
Test Scenario 2 – Claim
Claim Test Buyer purchased an active carbon credit NFT from the Wind Power Project in Karnataka by OMWPL certified by Goldstandard on Rarible (Rarible Listing). They desired to claim their active carbon credit NFT from the Wind Power Project in Karnataka by OMWPL and receive the carbon credit on the Gold Standard registry. Claim Test Buyer sent their active carbon credit NFT to the claim contract (polygonscan) along with their account details to the registry. Claim Test Buyer delivered the NFT and the underlying carbon credit was transferred on Gold Standard to their registry account.
Test Scenario 3 – Hold
Hold Test Buyer purchased an active carbon credit NFT from the VTRM Renewable Energy Project 1812 certified by Verra (OpenSea link). They desired to hold onto their active carbon credit NFT from the VTRM Renewable Energy Project. Hold Test Buyer was able to mint and hold the NFT for deposit at a future date.
DeepMarkit Enters into Liquidity Support Agreement with Radiance
Malaysia-based Radiance, an Investment Holding Company, has Earmarked up to C$20,000,000 of Buy-side Liquidity
CALGARY, AB, May 11, 2022 /CNW/ – DeepMarkit Corp., (“DeepMarkit” or the “Company”) (TSXV: MKT) (OTC: MKTDF) (FRA: DEP), a company focused on transitioning the global carbon offset market to the more accessible digital economy by minting credits into non-fungible tokens (“NFTs”), is pleased to announce that it has signed a buy-side liquidity support agreement (the “Agreement”) with Malaysian investment holding company and private equity firm, Radiance Assets Berhad (“Radiance”). Pursuant to the Agreement, Radiance has agreed to use its best efforts over a two-year term to purchase up to C$20,000,000 worth of NFTs or other secure tokens minted on the Company’s proprietary MintCarbon.io platform (the “Platform”).
Under the terms of the Agreement, Radiance has agreed to maintain, in readily available funds, a minimum of C$5,000,000 towards the purchase of carbon credits that have been minted into NFTs or other secure tokens via the Platform. DeepMarkit is of the opinion that the Agreement will help to benefit customers of the Platform who hold carbon credit NFTs by enhancing liquidity and improving price discovery. The Company further expects that the resulting liquidity will accelerate continued onboarding of NFTs or other secure tokens to its MintCarbon.io platform, as well as attract blue-chip clientele and industry partnership opportunities.
Based in Malaysia, Radiance is a diverse investment holding company with a focus on innovative and technologically driven businesses in the areas of Cleantech, Meditech and Fintech. Radiance also has a focus on the environment and solutions that better peoples’ lives. Radiance has several classes of funds including a new Agritech fund being launched with an asset value of USD 250 million. As previously announced, Radiance is currently a shareholder of DeepMarkit via recent private placements.
This Agreement follows DeepMarkit’s prior announcement under which Radiance has agreed to introduce carbon credit projects for onboarding through the Platform that is being developed to mint carbon offset credits into NFTs. Any minting and royalty-based revenues earned by DeepMarkit via Radiance’s referrals will result in a sharing arrangement with Radiance. Radiance’s obligation under the Agreement to purchase NFTs is subject to certain conditions, including, among other things, the availability of NFTs and the acceptability, for investment purposes, of the carbon credits and associated projects underlying the NFTs. Any purchase by Radiance will be completed by arrangement between Radiance and the applicable NFT holder.
“We are excited to enter into this Agreement with Radiance and evolve our relationship further. We value the support that Radiance is providing for our platform via the onboarding of projects and investment in resulting NFTs, which we feel will ultimately benefit NFT holders and project originators around the world,” stated Ranjeet Sundher, Interim CEO of DeepMarkit. “This is a formative period for DeepMarkit and our MintCarbon.io platform so we truly appreciate that Radiance continues to champion our growing business,” added Mr. Sundher.
Why use NFT technology?
While non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have gained recent traction over the buzz around the sky-rocketing prices of digital art pieces on platforms like OpenSea, the technology has potential that reaches far beyond artwork.
Digital tokens, secured with programmable smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain, that certify a digital asset to be unique and, therefore, not interchangeable. Carbon credits with individualized meta data and a record of ownership provide the transparency and accountability necessary to increase liquidity in the carbon markets.
On The Blockchain
In addition to the transparency that blockchain technology brings, there are numerous other benefits that will benefit the carbon credit market.
Permissionless global trading on platforms operating 24/7/365, opening up trading to a wider variety of investors, corporations, and individuals.
Programmable functionality through smart contracts and interoperability via composable ‘Lego block-like’ primitives enabling new types of capital formation and trading.
A reliable framework that could easily increase the flow of capital into carbon reduction initiatives, helping historically underfunded environmental companies and projects.
Bringing a massive and growing pool of global liquidity in the cryptocurrency markets to a traditionally illiquid market.
