The currency of the future — nature-backed MERIT tokens — is launching in September.
Have you ever wondered what the future will look like? Solar-powered flying cars, endless renewable energy, and nature thriving in the cities?
All of that, plus money backed by nature.
MERIT is the world's first nature-backed currency designed to save the planet from biodiversity loss and climate change. MERIT is the basis of a truly sustainable financial system that brings the economy in balance with nature and ensures that humans get to inhabit this beautiful planet for generations to come.
The new global currency, MERIT, was created to solve one of the biggest challenges humankind is facing: climate change and biodiversity loss. It's the currency that helps us get back within planetary boundaries.
To understand why MERIT exists and how it works, you first need to know the context:
That's what MERIT tokens are here to do.
MERIT tokens are minted based on the work nature does, reflecting the true value of these resources.
One MERIT represents 100 kg of CO2 captured in a biodiverse forest. Going forward, we will add carbon stocks, biodiversity, and other ecosystem services to the equation.
MERITs are minted on the Solana blockchain to the landowners' wallets based on our digital twin of the world's nature. Our in-house science team, consisting of 20 interdisciplinary scientists, has built planet-wide models that describe how nature works across the globe in almost real time.
The digital twin combines satellite data, big data analysis, and machine learning and works as an oracle for minting the MERIT tokens. For every 100 kg of CO2 captured in a biodiverse forest, the forest owner will receive a new MERIT in their wallet.
Landowners will continue to receive the tokens for as long as they keep their forests intact, which gives them a financial incentive to protect the ecosystem.
MERIT tokens will be available first to those who have joined the waitlist. There are probably a hundred good reasons to buy the tokens, but here are the top three highlighted by the first buyers:
