DeepMarkit (MKTDF) CEO Ranjeet Sundher: “Monetizing Carbon Credits on the Blockchain is Nearly a Trillion Dollar Opportunity”
DeepMarkit (MKTDF) , a featured presenter at Wall Street Reporter’s NEXT SUPER STOCK investors conference, is monetizing the nearly trillion dollar market for carbon credits onto the blockchain, with its Mint Carbon.io platform. The global traded market value of carbon dioxide permits grew by 164% to a record $851 billion in 2021, according to analysts at Refinitiv. This is viewed by institutional investors and hedge funds as the next major asset class. The carbon offset market is expected to surge ten-fold this decade as more enterprises pursue having ‘net-zero’ carbon emissions.

Via its MintCarbon.io platform, DeepMarkit (MKTDF) is capitalizing on this trend by helping carbon credit holders monetize their credits by minting them into tradeable NFTs on the blockchain, for liquid sale in the global market on 24/7 basis. MKTDF expects to officially launch MintCarbon.io in April and commence the onboarding of clients at around the same time. With two LOIs already signed, the company is optimistic that it will be able to mint a minimum of 5 million carbon credits in the second quarter of 2022. MKTDF generates revenues by charging a 10% minting fee to carbon credit holders, and also captures a perpetual royalty stream of up to 5% every time each NFTs is sold in the secondary market. In his interview with Wall Street Reporter, MKTDF CEO Ranjeet Sundher shared the key milestones to watch for in the coming weeks as new clients start joining the MintCarbon.io platform and as the first NFTs are minted. Sundher says that MKTDF’s early-mover advantage in the rapidly expanding carbon credit NFT space, combined with its significant pipeline of clients and projects, creates the potential for significant revenue growth and valuation upside in coming months.

March 23 - MKTDF Signes letter of intent with Top Energy USA to form a carbon offset arrangement pursuant to which Top Energy will introduce and onboard carbon credit projects onto the blockchain through MintCarbon.io. By way of the arrangement, DeepMarkit (MKTDF) expects to benefit from extensive and diverse exposure to numerous alternative electricity-based carbon projects. Based in the United States, Top Energy is a company focused on eco-friendly energy solutions in Mexico and Spain. Top Energy has specialized in clean energy technology in Spain since 2003 and expanded into Mexico in 2013. Top Energy has installed more than 41.8 megawatts ("MW") of clean energy across 23 states of the Mexican Republic representing more than 100 institutional clients.

Sundial Growers Inc. (SNDL) CEO Zach George: “Sundial’s Business Transformation Now Yielding Powerful Results”
“...We're pleased to announce Sundial's first ever quarter with positive results for both Adjusted EBITDA and net earnings. These results reflect the initial impact of the business transformation, led by Sundial's team over the last 10 months, as we focused on the continued improvement of our cultivation practices, and the accretive edition of the SpiritLeaf retail network. Despite the sustained challenges facing Canadian industry participants, our financial position has never been stronger...The acquisition of Inner Spirit Holdings, which we referred to as SpiritLeaf, has expanded the Company's cannabis operations to include a retail component. The October announcement of a definitive agreement to acquire Alcanna is another important step in the development of our integrated business model. We believe that we have hit a point of maximum retrenchment in our cultivation and production activities during the Third Quarter. Our relentless focus on improvement in our cultivation activities, including the refinement of our processes, as well as numerous cost reduction initiatives has resulted in exciting improvements in product quality, potency, cost structure, and gross margin. Since the beginning of the year, we have seen our results and potency yield in terpene improved month after month, hitting all-time best results for cultivation in the Third Quarter….Through our two-pillared strategy, we're looking to build a consistently profitable and scalable business, delivering free cash flow within the 2022 calendar year….”
