Nemus Launches Platform to Bridge the Gap Between Blockchain and Land Conservation

Emerging DeFi and NFT conservation-based project, Nemus, is launching its platform to promote sustainable economic activities in the Amazon Rainforest to protect land and endangered flora and fauna in the rainforest.

SAO PAULO, Brazil, Jan. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — After many months of work in the pipeline, Nemus is preparing to launch its NFT platform which will provide a collectible NFT experience with various game mechanics that incentivize activity to conserve and preserve the Amazon rainforest.

Nemus differs from existing NFT land projects as it deals with actual land in the Amazon providing a critical extension into the “real” world. This is the logical and inevitable next step in the land-based NFT space as an increasing number of real-estate-based NFT projects launch globally.

Rooted firmly in conservation, Nemus aims to protect rainforest land and the various endangered species of flora and fauna in the Amazon through sustainable economic activities. So far, Nemus has secured 41,000 hectares of actual at-risk land in the Amazon rainforest, an area approximately equivalent to the size of Paris (40 sq mi)Amsterdam (84 sq mi), and San Francisco (46 sq mi) combined. An additional 6.1 million hectares (~15 million acres) is currently under negotiation and soon to be at the ready. 

Forming a protective belt in one of the most threatened areas of the Amazon, Nemus will deter illegal loggers, ranchers and any other entity aiming to exploit the rainforest for personal gain. Nemus has prioritized its lands into regions, which are then divided into land “drops.” The Genesis NFT Drop, scheduled to be held in Q1 of 2022, will feature ~10,000 NFTs tied to actual parcels of land in the rainforest.

Buying or holding a Nemus NFT makes you a Guardian – an automatic member of the upcoming Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO), which also includes the founding and operational members of the Nemus Foundation. The implementation of the DAO will start simply as a sounding board for activity on the land, where Guardians can share their voice and signal toward specific proposals. Many of the decisions for economic activity will be led by the Nemus Foundation in an effort to exemplify the types of sustainable activities available.

As explained in detail in Nemus’ litepaper, ownership of an NFT is not a claim to ownership of the land, however, NFTs can be used to earn the native NEA token, unlock ongoing game rewards, and foster sustainable activity on the land. Rewards come in the form of $NEA tokens—Nemus native token—enhanced NFT features, and opportunities to mint entirely new NFTs, depending on the gaming mode one chooses to interact with.
