New Age Insurance For Farmers
What the Lemonade Crypto Climate Coalition provides will be entirely different from the traditional insurance offerings.
It has been constructed as a Decentralized Autonomous Organization, also known as DAO. The Lemonade Crypto Climate Coalition will be able to build and distribute its parametric weather & instantaneous insurance products to the farmers at the cost price.
Livestock keepers who are working in the emerging markets will also be able to avail themselves of these benefits subject to how open they are in adopting the new technology.
The Lemonade Crypto Climate Coalition has been formed by partnering with Chainlink, Avalanche, Etherisc, DAOstack, Pula, Hannover Re, and Tomorrow.io. Initial capital will be brought in by the Lemonade Foundation, following which other partners will chip in to fund its liquidity pool.
Through this dApp, farmers will be able to transact the required payment through their mobile devices. They will be able to utilize any global stablecoin or local currency. It is similar to traditional banking, and the payment system is widely followed in the traditional market.
Africa will be the first continent to experience the rollout of the Lemonade Crypto Climate Coalition. It is expected to conclude the rollout of the dApp within the next 12 months.

John Wu, the President of Ava Labs, highlighted that Avalanche was an ideal choice as it utilized the energy consumption of only 46 U.S households as compared to Ethereum, which utilized the energy of 1.6 million U.S households.
Rose Goslinga, a Co-Founder of Pula, talked about why Africa is being focused on the initial rollout of the dApp. Rose Goslinga stated that since Africa had around 300 million smallholder farmers, it was crucial for the coalition to focus on the continent on a priority basis.
