The Single.Earth MERIT token is not yet available. The minting has started, but the sale has not. When the Single.Earth platform launches, we’ll communicate it via our official communication channel, the Single.Earth website. Please make sure you’re visiting https://www.single.earth — check the URL carefully.
Single.Earth helps preserve existing ecosystems by making nature protection profitable and accessible with nature-backed MERIT tokens.
Human activities are causing unprecedented environmental changes, leading to a lack of resources, rising temperatures, and dying lifeforms. Since 1950, more than 662 million hectares of forest have been lost, and carbon concentration in the atmosphere has almost doubled.
31% of the Earth is covered in forests–– the best technology nature has for locking away carbon while being the center of biodiversity. The two features work together: the wilder and more diverse forests are, the more effective they are at absorbing carbon from the atmosphere.
MERIT is a virtual currency (a token) that represents – and protects – the work nature does to sustain life by sequestering carbon and hosting biodiversity. The tokens are issued to landowners based on the ecological value of their lands for as long as they keep their natural resources in good health.
1 MERIT = 100 kg of CO2 captured in biodiverse nature*
*A more holistic approach with other parameters (biodiversity and carbon stocks) will be introduced in the next iteration of the token.
In the first phase, it's possible to buy and hold MERIT. Each token will contribute to nature protection by incentivizing landowners to preserve their biodiverse forests.
We aim to design MERIT as an attractive opportunity for eager contributors and investors who see the future value of virtual assets backed by the real-life features of nature, such as carbon sequestration and biodiversity.
Our team is working on finding the right path to make MERIT a globally accepted and widely used currency through a virtual card, banking app, benefits for individuals, and solutions for businesses to achieve the ESG goals.
