Regen Network Launches Bridge to Polygon

Regen Network, a public chain built with Cosmos SDK, launched a bridge to the Polygon network in partnership with Toucan in a major milestone toward a thriving, multichain regenerative finance ecosystem.

The two-way bridge allows for the issuance, tokenization, and retirement of Toucan’s tokenized carbon credit (TCO2) assets on Regen Network and establishes Nature Carbon Tonne (NCT) as the first digital carbon token in the Cosmos ecosystem. Also, Users with NCT balances on the Polygon network can use the bridge to transfer NCT-eligible TCO2s to Regen Network and deposit them in on-chain carbon pools within the Osmosis decentralized exchange.

“The partnership between Toucan and Regen Network is pivotal for the success of ReFi,” Gregory Landua, CEO and co-founder of Regen Network. This “is the first step to open up the flow of Web3-native carbon credits originated on Regen Network into the Polygon and Celo ReFi communities, while bringing carbon liquidity into the growing Cosmos economy.”

Additionally, Bridging a Toucan TCO2 token from Polygon to Regen Network burns the credits on the Polygon blockchain and mints new carbon credits on Regen Network, to ensure that there is no double counting. The new carbon credits retain key credit metadata, such as the credit’s country of origin, vintage or methodology. When retired, the carbon credits are permanently taken out of circulation and removed from an account balance. They can still be tracked, but not traded anymore.
