KORA is a system that rewards you for acting sustainably. We help you see the impact of your carbon footprint in real time so that you can take steps towards living a more sustainable lifestyle.
Our mobile application measures the carbon footprint you are avoiding by making sustainable transportation choices. For every 100 grams of CO2 you avoid, you are rewarded with 1 KORA token. You can spend your KORAS in our rewards hub which offers discounts on a range of products and services, including on innovative sustainable products
In addition, you can create teams, join other groups, compare your results with friends and family as well as against local, national, and global averages.
Have you ever heard Greta Thunberg’s statement about our CO2 budget and carbon emissions? She mentions that we have 420 gigatons of carbon dioxide left in our CO2 budget and that we currently emit 42 gigatons of CO2 a year. But does this make sense to you?, Its not easy to connect these abstract numbers to our daily actions and their impact on the environment. For example, how much CO2 do we actually emit by driving our car or taking public transport?
This is where KORA comes in! KORA calculates your carbon footprint and your carbon footprint reduction based on the transportation choices that you make. For example, did you know that for every 1 km of a bike ride, you reduce about 192 grams of CO2? And taking the tram saves about 163 grams per km? With KORA, you don’t need to calculate your carbon savings; the application does it automatically based on your movements.
The best part is for every 100 grams of CO2 you avoid emitting; KORA will issue one KORA token for you.
We won’t “punish” you for the CO2 you emit using your car or flying. Instead, we will measure it and let you decide when you are ready to take steps to avoid those emissions. Using KORA, you can easily make small changes to your lifestyle and become more conscious and eco-friendly!
Currently, we’re using a third-party solution that relies on your phone’s GPS and acceleration measurements. While it’s not 100% precise, we’re working hard to improve the system. You may notice some small errors, like the app thinking you’re driving when you’re really on public transportation, but we’re aware of these issues and appreciate your patience and feedback as we work to make KORA even better.
Calculations are based on the following: A. how much you are commuting per day compared to your country’s average and B. the difference between the carbon footprint of the transportation mode to driving a car (at a later stage, we will compare it to the average emissions per kilometer in your country).
Your KORAS can be redeemed in our online Rewards Hub. This includes the online marketplace for discounted products and services, including discounts on some of the newest and most innovative sustainable brands coming to market. But that’s not all – with KORAS, you also have the option to donate your Korasto charitable causes allowing you to give back and make a positive impact on the world.
As a KORA premium user, you can also gain access to our exclusive experiences hub, where you can unlock unique experiences and special offers you won’t find anywhere else.
We are always looking to introduce new products and services to the Rewards Hub so if there is a particular brand, product, service or charity you would like to see included, then please do let us know! Contact us at email@example.com with your requests and we’ll look into it!
In contrast to the conventional approach of valuing carbon production, KORA implements a novel system that assigns a monetary value to carbon reduction. Specifically, KORA incentivises individuals to reduce their carbon footprint by rewarding them with a digital token called “KORA,” Each token represents 100 grams of carbon reduction.
For many years, the traditional carbon credits system has struggled to achieve the target value of $120 per metric ton of carbon. As of March 2023, the current carbon price in Europe is approximately €100 per metric ton. However, to reach the Paris Agreement target of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, the actual price of carbon should be €700 per metric ton.
KORA takes the concept of valuing carbon reduction to the next level by setting the value of one metric ton of carbon avoided at €1,000. The value of KORA is determined by the level of discounts available in its in-app marketplace. Although setting such a high price for carbon reduction is ambitious, KORA believes that the value of avoiding carbon emissions is far greater than offsetting or removing them from the atmosphere.
KORA is completely free to use! We firmly believe that you should be rewarded for your efforts to save the planet, rather than having to pay for it.
But wait, there’s more! KORA is excited to announce our premium service, which offers even bigger discounts and exclusive deals to our most dedicated users. And the best part? A portion of the monthly fee for our premium service will be donated by KORA to offset your carbon footprint, adding to your efforts to reduce your impact on the environment. So not only will you be saving money, but you’ll also be doing your part to help save the planet.

KORA is a cryptocurrency that is integral to the KORA economy. We chose to tokenize KORA for two important reasons: Firstly, to protect your data and to give you the ability to verify your actions and secondly, because we are committed to democratising individual carbon credits, making it easier than ever for everyone to do their part in reducing their carbon footprint.
What sets KORA apart from other cryptocurrencies is its unique characteristics. The value of KORA is directly tied to the amount of CO2 that is avoided, which is crucial to keeping the earth’s temperature from rising more than 1 degree Celsius. To learn more about the value of KORA, visit the “What is the value of KORA” section of the FAQs.
At KORA, we believe in complete transparency and equality. That’s why we have not issued any KORAS to ourselves or anyone else, and we have no plans to do so in the future. We are all in this together, and the only way to earn KORAS is by improving our climate-related behaviour and reducing our carbon footprint.
Finally, the KORA protocol is built on top of the Tezos Foundation’s layer one protocol. This allows us to share similar values with Tezos while consuming very little energy, thanks to our use of proof of stake rather than proof of work. We are proud to be part of such a sustainable ecosystem. Tezos is an early investor in KORA.
