world. We prove it.
Topl is building a world where social progress and profit go hand-in-hand. We’ve engineered and launched a novel blockchain infrastructure that enables companies and communities to prove and monetize their ethical and sustainable practices, transforming impact into an asset.
Imagine our digital infrastructure as a decentralized network of highways. First, new information—from companies ethically producing goods or organizations generating positive impact—enters the network. Next, the information securely flows to other stakeholders, such as supply chain partners, consumers, investors, or donors. Finally, funds can be brought into the system and sent in the opposite direction, to compensate producers and support new opportunities. Just like on-ramps and off-ramps that provide access to a highway system, a collection of web and mobile applications direct information flow onto and off-of our infrastructure.
“Doing good” has always been desirable, but many groups struggle to quantify and demonstrate their intangible social and environmental contributions. Our novel mechanism, the Impact Credit, will transform positive impact into a new asset class. Impact credits allow businesses to better leverage and monetize their positive outcomes through social impact bonds, results-based financing, and Topl’s own Impact Market.
As products with ethical guarantees become sales leaders, tracking and certifying a good’s source and story becomes even more essential. Our infrastructure is designed to collect and verify data at each step in a product’s life cycle, from source to sale. Each product has a digital twin called a Smart Asset, which collects information as it’s processed and exchanged—changes in ownership, location, quality, and price are all recorded on our blockchain.
A significant barrier in any new economy—emerging, impact, or eco-sustainable— is an absence of trust and transparency, with funds too commonly being misused, misdirected, or even stolen. Our technology helps bridge the gap; funds are traced from origin to owner, with use and impact details recorded each step of the way. Further, our infrastructure’s Modular Chain Programs make these transfers “smart” with logic and conditions built in.
If you’re part of a company or NGO that might benefit from an increased ability to track and monetize your impact or sustainable practices, contact us! We’re always looking for exciting new ventures.
