Epoch 3 Cohort: 🔵 ReFi DAO

ReFi DAO is leveraging web3 tech to regenerate Earth’s ecosystems and promote systems that emphasize ecological and social well-being.

This interview is a part of our on-going series, where we highlight our epoch 3 participants.

What's ReFi DAO?

ReFi DAO is a pioneering force in the Regenerative Finance (ReFi) movement, leveraging web3 technologies to regenerate Earth’s ecosystems and promote systems that emphasize ecological and social well-being. Acting as a catalyst for change, we foster a global network of regenerative founders, investors, and builders, using open-source technology, transparency, and decentralization to create sustainable, inclusive, and equitable economic systems. Through initiatives such as ReFi Local Nodes and the our media network, we aim empower communities worldwide to deploy impactful solutions, fostering long-term sustainability and resilience in diverse regions.

Why should Octant users vote for ReFi DAO in epoch 3?

By supporting ReFi DAO, the Octant community can help to expand a proven model of environmental and social regeneration that combines local action with global network support. Our initiatives like the ReFi Local Nodes are already making measurable impacts by enabling communities to deploy solutions tailored to their unique challenges and we have many ideas for how to further expand and support this network with developments such as the ReFi Passport. A vote for ReFi DAO is a vote for a resilient, equitable future, where technology serves the planet and its people, fostering a sustainable ecosystem that benefits all.
