It’s not easy being green. Despite every effort an individual can make, the systemic value-extracting architecture of our social systems means the planet is under assault like never before. We are living through the death of the Earth, a slow twilight punctuated by the screaming of climate Cassandras.
It’s not too late to change course. Organisations around the world strive to mend the damage done every day. Nation states belatedly commit to green policies. Yet breaking old inequities and unleashing healing regenerative finance is not easy.
The inefficiency of fundraising models, liquidity fragmentation, burdensome distribution channels, and ineffective goal alignment means that, when it comes to environmental regeneration, money doesn’t always go where it should, nor does it do what it promises.
Crossing the Borders of Regenerative Finance
Borderless wants to change that. We are a Social Impact Network using on-chain regenerative finance (ReFi) to create transparent, democratic funding of environmental and social causes.
Current funding models, from crowdfunding to direct donation platforms to quadratic funding like Gitcoin’s model, have gradually democratised the social giving sector and streamlined the distance between dollar and cause.
Yet problems remain, too few causes get too much money, which makes each large cause inefficient and all smaller ones non-existent. Borderless solves this by changing the funding model from one of scarcity to one of abundance, leveraging DeFi to distribute funds equitably throughout the ReFi ecosystem.
Borderless’s community participants allocate funds generated by DeFi yield to a host of sustainable goals including agroforestry, community education, carbon capture, public health, water pollution, and legal assistance for indigenous communities.
Borderless DAO’s tech innovators, community educators, impact analysts, artists and facilitators collaborate to create and contribute to causes by leveraging our powerful network of social changemakers. The Borderless team has spent years building infrastructure for funding social causes, with direct participation in social and environmental impact initiatives in Brazil and the United States. It’s now time for the regenerative finance network to be expanded globally.
Borderless eschews a purely carbon-centric approach, believing excessive focus on carbon imagines has masked broader inequalities caused by climate change and environmental damage. Our direct donation portfolio, ImpactPulse, focuses on health, water, and human rights – not just carbon reductions. Carbon tunnel vision ignores the wider potential of ReFi to make a difference to people’s lives.
How Borderless Works
Borderless secures your idle capital and generates yield for your idle portfolio that then funds UN sustainable goals through our SynergyVault (Shared Value Fund). Investments are focused on recursive circularity, not accumulation, to promote organic growth and democratic resource distribution. Borderless’s community can actively add and vote on new causes to participate in the fund, powering up new regenerative initiatives globally.
Borderless is thus a simple way for anyone to immediately contribute to making the world better with zero friction, instantly connecting their capital to global regenerative finance efforts through the power of Web3. In doing so, you seamlessly join a global community of environmentalists, as well as unlocking access to seed capital to fund your own initiatives or causes you support by participating in the ecosystem. This is how money becomes truly borderless and decentralised, able to flow to where it needs to be.
Borderless money, or $BoM, is how this money flows, acting as the liquidity substrate for donations. Users can stake to earn yield, and deposit capital in strategy vaults tailored to specific DeFi strategies or to specific causes, or both. Borderless utilises 20% of capital in higher risk tranches in consultation with the community DAO, with the other 80% focused on generating long term sustainable yield for causes and for the ecosystem itself. The goal is for $BoM to be the regenerative firepower that connects broad participation giving to on–the-ground environmental causes, fostering environmental economics where it’s needed the most and recapturing that growth within the ecosystem.
Money Moving for Change
Maybe being green isn’t so hard. Maybe giving greenbacks ain’t so difficult either. There has been awesome progress in the democratisation of social giving with the advent of fintech technologies. And with blockchain, and the transparency, immutability, and efficiency it provides, regenerative finance is more powerful than it’s ever been, and more green than you’ve ever seen. With Borderless, your money can now go everywhere, instantly – surging through a regenerative finance network that seeks to heal this world through yield.
