Once united in a mutual cause, distance and borders can only fuel the passion to change the world.
We here at Coorest, want to live a greener, more sustainable life. What about you? For this reason, we have teamed up with the 315 Guild. Our collaborative efforts gave birth to a very special project in Mohawk, in the state of New York.
The number 315 stands for a telephone area code, located in the western part of northern New York.
315 Guild is both a DAO community and an organisation that deals with everything related to Web 3.0. Artists all over the world have recognized the value of their vision, paired up with blockchain technology. Musicians, writers, gamers, photographers, filmmakers, and various other contributors have become avid users. The 315 Guild Metaverse takes pride in the fact it gathers visionaries in one place.
So, how can you join the Metaverse? Since the access is limited to NFT holders, you will have to buy one to join. Think of it as a membership fee with an exclusive agreement. Being a member of The Guild is quite worthwhile. There you will find a community of like-minded individuals who will take you on a cultural exploration. The team at the 315 Guild consists of blockchain enthusiasts who are always ready to help out.
Recently, this Metaverse community decided to start a project in the virtual and the real world. Their plan was to reintroduce greenery back to a small village in New York State. They came up with a great idea of compensating for their own carbon footprint. Naturally, this made them reach out to Coorest. The mutual vision that connects both companies resulted in an instant partnership. We are proud to say that Coorest and the 315 Guild are associates. We are collaborating on the project that is to reintroduce greenery and fresh air back to Mohawk. What made this project truly worthwhile and valuable, is the use of blockchain technology.
Coorest will assist the 315 Guild by planting 15 acres of land with forest trees. More than 11,500 trees will find their home, but they are also estimated to absorb around 287,500 kg of CO2 each year. The newly planted oak, birch, maple, ash, and sassafras trees will decorate the village and produce fresh air. The region’s biodiversity will be restored. Nature will start recovering. The area’s native species and the whole ecosystem will impact the quality of life. The 315 Guild forest will be open for community use. The forest will serve as a gathering ground for like-minded individuals who want to promote green peace. Initiating digital innovations and deploying web3 applications, will help create a safer environment. Only then can we revel in the wonders of nature.
All the trees in the forest will be tokenized. This means that each NFTree will generate $CCO2 equivalents of the captured carbon. For the project to be successful, 2,300 NFTs have to be sold for 230,000 USDC. These funds will be used for purchasing the land and trees. Each NFT is priced at 100 USDC and represents five trees. When these trees mature, each will absorb roughly around 25kg of CO2 per year. This means that a single NFT is expected to generate 125 $CCO2.
