Mitigation Token — universal exchange vehicle for multiple green finance assets. Designed to unite green finance markets across the globe

Mitigation Token — first token based on the DAO IPCI Protocol scaling up green economy and environmental assets trade

Our mission

We have developed blockchain- based protocol creating global green finance market mobilizing funds for environmental and climate change mitigation.

We will reach it by helping every market player benefit from blockhainization features.

Global benefits of the DAO IPCI protocol

Ethereum-based public blockchain and smart contracts eliminate fraud and double counting, provide for unprecedented transparency, trust and quality of the green assets and the green economy infrastructure:

Easy access to green investment and assets via decentralized application
Offsetting of environmental and carbon footprints
Monitoring of green investment projects outcomes and supply chains
Blockchainization of corporate, regional, national and international environmental programs
Instant launch and management of decentralized environmental programs
Attracting investment into green projects without borders

For whom DAO IPCI protocol is made?
DAO IPCI has been designed and launched by and for booming environmental finance market champions (exchanges, traders, regulators, green bond issuers, green project developers and owners, businesses and individuals interested in environmental market solutions)
What market problems does the DAO IPCI protocol solve?

DAO IPCI design objective is to provide common space, common space fabric, common tools and ecosystem that would be universal, reliable, easy-to-use, transparent and allow diverse stakeholders, including businesses and individuals, to register quantified impacts and pledges, to invest environmental damage mitigation projects, to offset carbon footprint, to acquire and trade the outcomes of mitigation activities.

As societal costs mitigation-focused blockchain ecosystem, DAO IPCI is smart contracts-based digital environment developed to minimize transaction costs, to make issuance and transfer of mitigation units, including internationally transferred mitigation outcomes, highly reliable, transparent and centralized manipulations-proof.

What environmental assets and programs can be blockchainized by the DAO IPCI protocol?
DAO IPCI is adjustable and designed to match the needs and specifics of multiple environmental programs varying from carbon credits to supply chain monitoring and certification. For details please see the Whitepaper (PDF, 307.2 KB).
Who is developing DAO IPCI protocol?

DAO IPCI protocol is being developed by the team of renowned Ethereum developers along with environmental finance market experts with 20+ years of experience. Each team member had been involved in several successful international projects what helped us to attract the attention of respectable advisors.

What stage at is the project?

Unlike other blockchain projects, DAO IPCI Protocol is already functioning and is already helping to blockchainize several environmental programs from around the globe. DAO IPCI team has also developed minimum viable functionality of a decentralized application that is used to access DAO IPCI Protocol. The first ever blockchain-based carbon credit transaction was performed using our DApp in March 2017.

What are the next steps in developing DAO IPCI?
Long-term prospects of DAO IPCI development are limited only by its’ functional capacity as the trends are evidently in favor of environmental markets’ and specifically carbon markets’ expansion both in scale and number, linkage and integration with a perspective of ultimate creation of common market space with fungible instruments. DAO IPCI is a prototype of such market space and units.

Near-term prospects rely on primary demand development at the account of large corporate and regional (subnational) climate programs (including global pilot market mechanism for international civil aviation), carbon footprint offsetting programs, and consumer demand development. Please see the detailed development plan in the Whitepaper.
Why DAO IPCI is released in open source?
The DAO IPCI Protocol is open source initiative under the 3-Clause BSD License because of its global mission.
What are MITO tokens?
Mitigation Token (or MITO) is DAO IPCI protocol-based environmental units exchange vehicle, the key element to provide for transactions’ efficiency and integrity of the ecosystem. MITO is designed to serve a digital mitigation costs, carbon pricing instrument, a digital CO2 cost equivalent.
How does the MITO Token distribution work?

Initial emission and distribution of MITO shall be limited by 10,000,000 tokens and performed in two stages:
At the preliminary stage, emission and distribution of MITO shall be limited by 1,000,000 tokens to be exchanged for ETH at 1 MITO for 0,003 ETH exchange rate.

Why was this token distribution method chosen?

This method provides for fungibility, for launching exchange of diverse environmental units and for developing demand for assured mitigation outcomes.

Further emission of MITO shall be governed by MITO emission protocol and pool of decentralized autonomous organizations, which agree on MITO emission policy and abstain from emission of alternative digital currencies to be exchanged for environmental units or other independently assured mitigation outcomes (“MITO pool of DAOs”). Further emission of MITO shall be possible after MITO Pool of DAOs is formed and MITO emission protocol is refined but no sooner than one year after the start of ICO.

How can I participate in the Mito Token presale?

Sign-up here, subscribe to our newsletter and we shall send you the detailed instruction. MITO shall be exchanged for ETH with at least 50% discount off the ICO exchange rate,

When and where I will be able to sell my MITO?

You can exchange MITO for verified environmental units via MITO Market. The more environmental units, carbon compliance units are accessible through DAO IPCI the more value is in MITO and an instrument to ensure predictability of environmental compliance units prices. You also can sell MITO to other DAO IPCI users or at the exchanges once MITO is listed.

What wallets are recommended to participate in MITO Tokens presale?

Any wallets that support Ether (ETH),

Is there a minimum and maximum purchase for MITO Tokens?

There is no minimum amount but it is hardly viable to acquire less than one MITO at 0,003 ETH exchange rate

How can I exchange MITO for carbon credits or other environmental assets?

You can exchange MITO for environmental units accessible via DAO IPCI MITO Market at

Why can’t U.S. citizens, residents or entities purchase MITO Tokens?

U.S. citizens, residents and entities should be excluded from purchasing Mitigation Tokens in the token distribution because of the regulations in the United States of America. Mito Tokens are not securities, commodities, swaps on either securities or commodities, or similar financial instruments. MITO are not designed for investment or speculative purposes and should not be considered as a type of investment. U.S. citizens, residents and entities should not purchase or attempt to purchase Mitigation Tokens. It concerns other jurisdictions with specific requirements that may potentially regulate MITO as a security.

How and when can I participate in the Mito Token ICO?

Mito ICO will be announced on November 15, 2017 at Please subscribe to our newsletter to be among the first who will receive the details.

How can I transfer or sell MITO Tokens?

Mitigation Token sole purpose is to provide market exchange operations with environmental units issued to the environmental units’ registries by independent entities under the rules and supervision of operators. MITO holders receive the right to exchange them for environmental units at MITO Market at

Are there network fees when transferring Mito Tokens?

Transaction in the Ethereum Net are subject to ETH gas fees like all other transactions on the Ethereum network.

Where do the proceeds from the MITO Token presale go?
Genesis Operator and the Team of Founders (see: shall perform initial emission and offering of Mitigation Token

  • to boost non-commercial research and development of economic and IT protocols needed to sustain and expand the mitigation ecosystem (60% of funds raised),
  • to establish a non-profit legal entity for these purposes in Zug, Switzerland (20% percent of funds raised),
