At BlockMint, we create new distributed ledger technologies to enable a more decentralized deployment of blockchain based applications, such as cryptocurrency mining.
We believe that everyone should be able to browse the internet safely and securely without third parties having access to their private data and online activities. We also believe that everyone with an internet connection should be able to participate in the crypto-economy. We believe that cryptocurrency mining from personal devices should be easy. We aim to make the crypto-economy more decentralized and accessible to everyone.
We also believe that we each need to do our part to tackle climate change and preserve our planet for future generations. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has stated that the window of opportunity to limit global warming and its dramatic consequences is closing fast. Global warming has led to devasting effects on the planet such as extreme weather events, wildfires and rising sea levels.
The Minter browser is the only web browser where users can mine cryptocurrency to earn carbon credits to offset their carbon footprint as they browse the internet. Your carbon footprint is basically the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions that you produce from your daily activities. Carbon credits allow you to offset these emissions by representing a reduction or removal of emissions in a sustainable project somewhere else on the planet.
Minter will also allow users to browse the internet with privacy, speed and security by offering free integrated features including a virtual private network (VPN) and ad blocker.
Minter will initially be launched for use on desktops and laptops, with apps for mobile devices to follow.
