What is going on?

Humanity is thriving. Economic prosperity is everywhere. The world economy is growing every single year. More people are joining this earth as inhabitants. Companies are focussing on profits and growth like never before.

It sounds like a positive movie script, right?

The issue acknowledged above is a significant and pressing concern for society. It is one of the most pressing problems we have faced as a civilisation. The earth is no longer able to support us due to our actions, and it is sending us warning signals through various means. However, we continue to pollute and damage the earth, and even attempt to offset our pollution through carbon credits that may actually contribute to further harm. Immediate and drastic policy changes are necessary in order to address this issue.

How do we fight this?

At Carbify, we believe it's important to do our part in taking care of the earth and its sustainability. That's why we're dedicated to investing in eco-friendly, biodiverse, and world-healing projects, such as planting trees. And to ensure that our decisions are guided by experts, we work with ecologists rather than politicians or profit-driven entrepreneurs. Additionally, we're committed to educating the public and helping those in need through initiatives like feeding the underprivileged.

Frequently Asked Questions

Carbify aims to have a beneficial effect on the environment through our unique program. By investing in trees that are grown by local people in the Amazon rain forest, you can help to absorb CO2 from the air and provide a sustainable source of income for these communities. As a tree owner, you will receive tokenized CO2 ($aCO2) which can be used in a variety of ways, or even sold for a profit. This not only has positive environmental consequences, but also has a positive social impact on the local communities involved.

Carbify is planting real trees in the Amazon rainforest and assigning each tree an NFT (non-fungible token) on the blockchain. The NFT will include the coordinates of the project, the date it was planted, and other relevant information. The tree cannot be sold more than once due to the use of blockchain technology. As the owner of an NFTree, you will receive $aCO2 tokens.

The $aCO2 token represents one kilogram of carbon dioxide compensated through the planting of trees in the Amazon rainforest. Only trees planted within the Amazon rainforest will contribute to the generation of $aCO2.
