In 2015, the Paris Agreement sparked over 196 countries to sign up to lower global temperatures to below 2°C (35.6°F), ideally to 1.5°C (34.7°F). Some key measures to achieve these goals include countries incorporating ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, building resilience within countries to adapt to rising temperatures, communicating financial data and need to support these initiatives, and incorporating advanced technologies to achieve goals. With this view in mind, governments around the world initiated discussions and strategies to achieve net-zero carbon emissions. For any economy to be successful in achieving national or global goals…

Weather on the blockchain: sounds crazy, right? Well, maybe not. Although you may only use the weather app to decide how to dress in the morning, there are much larger implications of what is happening with the weather. Up to 70% of businesses are financially exposed to weather risks.

Data Consumer REST API and Data Consumer Client Codebase Now Available

dClimate’s mandate is to build a decentralized ecosystem for climate data. This ecosystem as we envision it consists of three high-level architectural components —

  1. A data consumer component where users can retrieve clean, standardized, highly available, and immutable climate data.
  2. A data publisher component where users can post data and get paid for it without any real blockchain knowledge.
  3. A governance component where network behavior can be managed.

Within the first two components, we have identified specific milestones related to free (unencrypted) and paywalled (encrypted) datasets. As explained in the Whitepaper, even free datasets are often prohibitive to access. Authorities…

Considerations about how to plan outdoor events around weather have always been necessary. Professional sports leagues rely on accurate, up to the minute forecasts to make preparations in advance and to map…

Today, we are proud to introduce the world to dClimate, a decentralized marketplace where climate data, models, and forecasts are standardized, monetized, and distributed.

Who Is dClimate For?

Those of us living in developed nations might take the importance of accurate local weather forecasting for granted.
