Menthol Protocol brings eco-transparency and carbon credits to the Economy of Things on peaq



Menthol Protocol will develop a mechanism to calculate and offset the carbon footprint of decentralized applications (dApps), Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Networks (DePINs), and devices running on peaq, bringing the eco-friendly ecosystem’s sustainability to a new level.

peaq, the Web3 network powering the Economy of Things, unveils integration with Menthol Protocol, the first multi-chain decentralized sustainability protocol with automatic carbon offsetting. Menthol Protocol joins the peaq ecosystem to build a carbon footprint calculator for decentralized applications and Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Networks (DePINs) running on peaq and its canary network krest. In following  stages, the integration will unlock automatic on-chain carbon offsets for any projects building on peaq, make its energy consumption more transparent, and bring more liquidity into the ecosystem.

While Proof-of-Work blockchain networks have seen their fair share of criticism over their appetite for electricity, the Web3 space is experimenting with other, less demanding consensus models. By spearheading its eco-friendly Nominated Proof-of-Stake model and leveraging a hub-and-spokes architecture, Polkadot, the layer-0 blockchain hosting 100 mission-specific parachains, has become the greenest major blockchain network in the world. Soon to be a Polkadot parachain, peaq also works toward greater sustainability, which demands greater transparency and clear-cut metrics.

The integration with Menthol Protocol will bring the observability of the network’s carbon footprint to a whole new level, while also allowing it to become even more sustainable via automated offsets. Menthol Protocol works toward a more sustainable Web3 by bringing dApp builders and decentralized communities a handy and versatile tool for measuring and offsetting their carbon footprint with on-chain credits. The protocol handles the off-sets automatically in line with the user’s needs and preferences, leveraging pools of trusted on-chain sustainability and impact projects.

Menthol’s integration with peaq will begin with a custom set of metrics that the project will develop to measure the carbon footprints of dApps and DePINs on peaq. It will look into the network’s overall hash rate, or computational power, as well as the energy sources the network relies on. These metrics will eventually power the first version of its peaq-specific carbon calculator, which will offer the community a whole new level of transparency into peaq’s sustainability. 


Besides an overview of the network’s eco-stats, the calculator will also work as the basis for an offsetting mechanism that will enable any dApps and DePINs on peaq to go carbon-neutral. The mechanism will leverage automated transactions powered by various sustainability and impact on-chain projects via Menthol Protocol. The tool will be easy to integrate and set up, enabling a smooth drive toward greater sustainability within the ecosystem. It will also encourage more IoT device manufacturers and machine-focused projects to join the peaq ecosystem to leverage the automated offsets, thus bringing more liquidity and promoting its growth.

In the longer run, the calculator will be updated to reflect the carbon footprints of the machines on the network, including those running as part of various peaq-powered DePINs. This will enable the community to get a better understanding of how their machines impact the environment and give preference to devices with more sustainable carbon profiles.

“Becoming carbon-neutral is one of the key conditions for real-world Web3 adoption. Menthol Protocol enables developers, builders, and entire decentralized communities to easily track and offset their carbon footprints. Bringing these capabilities to peaq, we are upping this by a notch and linking real-world machines and services with on-chain sustainability mechanisms — a clear-cut showcase of how Web3 can change the world for the better.” — Amir Sultan Awan, CMO of Menthol Protocol. 

“The Economy of Things must be as transparent as possible, and giving the community a detailed breakdown of how sustainable it is is an important step toward that. The peaq network will run on Web3’s greenest foundation, and Menthol Protocol will enable it to become even greener through increased visibility and automated offsets built into dApps and DePINs.” — Till Wendler, co-founder of peaq.

Artificial Intelligence takes Center Stage at Blockchain Futurist Conference 2024 in Toronto




 The highly anticipated Blockchain Futurist Conference, Canada’s Largest Web3 Event, is set to return for its sixth year to Toronto this August 13-14, 2024, with a focus on Artificial Intelligence as a core theme. This year’s event promises to offer sessions, panels, and sub-events centered around AI, highlighting how these technologies are transforming Web3 and reshaping our world. The dedicated AI segment is scheduled for Wednesday, August 14, 2024, and is accessible with all conference passes.

AI and Web3 technologies are rapidly converging to create a future that promises to revolutionize the digital landscape. AI’s ability to analyze vast amounts of data, and automate complex processes, complements Web3’s decentralized and transparent framework. This integration enables more secure, and equitable solutions across various sectors.

At this year’s event, attendees can hear from top industry leaders in AI such as:

  • Anthony Di Iorio, Founder, Ethereum, Decentral, Andiami

  • Ben-Zion Benkhin, CEO, WOMBO

  • Ashley Nandan, Google Canada, Startups

  • Ari Juels, Chief Scientist, Chainlink Labs

  • Christopher Johnson, Developer, Bad Idea AI

  • Trevor Koverko, Co-Founder, Sapien

  • JD Seraphine, CEO, Raiinmaker

  • Breeze Liu, Founder & CEO, Alecto AI

  • Christopher Obereder, Investor, Startup Chris Ventures

  • Adam Benzine, Creator & Oscar®-Nominated Filmmaker

AI Futurist Conference will also host multiple sponsors dedicated to AI organizations, such as Inference Labs, a Gold Sponsor at this year’s event.


Inference Labs specializes in developing advanced infrastructure and products for AI on Web3. Their lab focuses on AI inference interoperating on the blockchain, an essential step for building a future where anyone can access AI without counterparty risk.

Ron Chan, Co-Founder of Inference Labs, and a visionary entrepreneur dedicated to pioneering the future of Decentralized AI had this to say:

“In all my years navigating tech cycles, I have never witnessed the level of developer interest in Artificial Intelligence that we see today. We’re at an inflection point where Internet traffic is roughly split 50/50 between humans and machines. I firmly believe that inference will soon become the dominant form of Internet traffic.”

With two decades of experience as a serial entrepreneur, Ron Chan has successfully navigated the ever-evolving tech industry, leading multiple technology and infrastructure startups to successful exits. His expertise spans architecting data centers, defense projects, and developing mission-critical civil aviation applications, showcasing his versatility and adeptness in managing complex, high-stakes ventures.

Futurist Conference will also host multiple sub-events and meetups for the AI community throughout the venue on both days. These include:

  • Crypto x AI Book Signing: Ari Juels, Chief Scientist of Chainlink Labs and author of “The Oracle,” will discuss Crypto x Artificial Intelligence on the Main Stage, followed by a book signing.

  • AI Ethics Roundtable: A critical exploration of the ethical implications of AI and the transformative role of Web3 technologies.

  • AI Web3 & Robotics for Kids: A fun and interactive workshop for kids to learn about AI and Web3, with hands-on experience with robots.

  • Robots Live Onsite: Witness jaw-dropping innovations in action and experience the thrill of future technologies before your eyes.

Futurist Conference aspires to be more than just an event; it aims to create a future world within a conference, immersing attendees in the cutting-edge technologies that will shape tomorrow. By offering interactive experiences, and live demonstrations, the conference allows participants to see, feel, and engage with the latest advancements in AI, Web3, and beyond.
