The GreenCoin ecosystem is a renewable production incentive system. GreenCoins are generated by renewable energy producers. GreenCoins represent carbon savings which are awarded to and owned by individuals. This short introductory movie helps describe the ecosystem:
The GreenCoin incentive system works because it is inexpensive to operate and does not require government intervention or international government cooperation to operate. The ecosystem maximizes efficiency by allowing individuals to control the ownership and distribution of carbon emission offset credits. The value of the ecosystem is set by free, open-market operations.
