In an announcement on Keybase that was quickly deleted, the World Bank Climate Warehouse observer node that was announced last month is up and live. You can check it out here. There is also quite a bit of information available at the link posted in the announcement about how the system works.
The observer node is the part of the Climate Blockchain system that will be used to allow people to check out the carbon market without running their own complete infrastructure. The github links are still set to private as of this writing, so we cannot see under the hood yet, but they are here for when they go live:
This is very exciting, and is exactly the kind of growth Chia Network has been focused on executing over the last little while. It appears that they are successfully executing on those plans. There is also a VERY comprehensive whitepaper about the project linked, which I will include in its entirety below.
Right now there is only a single test project in the warehouse so it is hard to see how well it work for the participants. But based on the progress being made I think we will know fairly soon. I do not think this is Project Asteroids, so I think there is at least one more big announcement coming soon.Chia_as_the_Blockchain_Technology_for_the_Climate_Warehouse_3f553aff80_pRQYXIe0g
