Regens

Regen, like degen, is a term used to describe a crypto user who jumps into ReFi communities or invests in tokens that use blockchain technology to advance positive environmental impact.

What Are Regens?

Regen is a play on words on “‘degen” (short for degenerate), a popular term in crypto communities, particularly for traders interested in risky decentralized finance (DeFi) projects. 
Regen, meanwhile, is a term used in regenerative finance (ReFi). Regenerative Finance is a different segment of DeFi that uses web3 tools, such as smart contracts, to introduce planet-positive, environment-related markets, such as carbon credits, that are focused on creating positive change in human behaviors while regenerating our planet. 

Regen, like degen, is a term used to describe a crypto user who jumps into ReFi communities or invests in tokens that use blockchain technology to advance positive environmental impact. 

Regens often purchase tokens that can generate yield and be plugged into other aspects of the web3 ecosystem while also helping to fund public goods that are mainly advancing the protection of the Earth. The term promotes how crypto users can leverage blockchain technology for profit and, at the same time, benefit from a secure, reliable, transparent and open financial ecosystem that is channeled towards revitalizing the Earth and combating climate and societal issues.
