Originally Published on Gitcoin’s Blog
A post on the state of the regen web3 ecosystem — including a breakdown of top organizations to be aware of, as well as some interesting predictions about what 2023 might have in store for the regen ecosystem.
What’s at the heart of web3 for good? How can this emerging stack of technologies be used to grow the capacity of life on earth? How might we restore our natural systems, bridge silos, and bring humanity into a state of harmony with life through web3 technology?
Join us in an exploration of the intersecting movements of regeneration and web3, and learn how regen web3 could form the technical foundation for a new paradigm, where human systems increase the capacity of life.

One with the potential to shift our economy, infrastructure, and culture into harmonious, life-generating living systems based on co-evolution with earth.

It challenged the way I thought and saw the world, making me realize that it’s a completely different paradigm of thinking than the one we default to in the modern world. To dive deeper into regenerative theory, check out the following resources from Carol (the last article I wrote as a summary of the…
