What is Regenerative Finance?
Regenerative finance is a type of financial system that aims to promote economic, social, and ecological sustainability by integrating regenerative practices into financial transactions and investments.
In contrast to traditional finance, which often prioritizes short-term profits and ignores environmental and social impacts, regenerative finance focuses on long-term resilience and regeneration. This involves investing in projects that support sustainable agriculture, clean energy, and other regenerative practices that promote the health and well-being of people and the planet.
Regenerative finance also emphasizes community involvement and empowerment, with a focus on supporting local economies and promoting social justice. This approach recognizes that financial systems have a significant impact on people and the planet, and seeks to create a more equitable and sustainable future through financial practices that prioritize regeneration over extraction.
TL:DR - Make money work for society, not the other way around! 🚀
What is Quadratic Funding?
Quadratic funding is a crowdfunding mechanism that aims to democratize fundraising and support grassroots initiatives. The concept was first introduced by Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum, in 2018.
In traditional crowdfunding, the amount of funding received by a project is proportional to the number of individual contributors, regardless of the amount they contribute. In contrast, quadratic funding takes into account both the number of contributors and the total amount contributed. This means that smaller contributions from a large number of individuals can have a bigger impact than a single large contribution.
Quadratic funding works by using a matching algorithm that matches funds contributed by large donors with funds contributed by small donors, based on a quadratic formula. In this way, the algorithm incentivizes a large number of individuals to contribute small amounts, as their contributions are matched more generously by the funds contributed by large donors.
TL:DR - Your dollar is your VOTE! 🔥
