Prof. Dr. Thorsten Hens from the Swiss FinTech Innovation Lab of the Institute of Banking and Finance at the University of Zurich on the carbon neutral crypto asset solution: "Previously available measurement approaches only focus on a part of the carbon emissions and vary greatly in their results. With our innovative method and comprehensive view, the carbon footprint is calculated based on the life cycle of crypto assets. Thanks to the ongoing development of the method, the carbon footprint can be determined ever better and more accurately. The compensation of the calculated cap by Helveteq offers an optimal solution to enable investors to invest carbon neutrally in cryptocurrencies."
