Nature Reflecting on Crystal Glass

FAQ

  1. Don't have a Wallet?
    If you don't have a crypto wallet, don't worry, when you purchase with Meta Carbon using your Credit Card, we'll set you up with Wallet address for your NFT and we'll provide instructions on how to use Meta Mask and authenticate into the services provided in the Carbon Creatures website and metaverse.
     

  2. How does Minting Work?
    We started selling carbon creatures to a lucky, limited number of "insiders" on October 1st.  The initial price was $50, but has been going up as we get closer to our minting day on Oct 30th.  On Minting Day, we will mint Carbon Creatures to all pre-buyers, but like buying a pack of baseball cards or a booster pack of Magic the Gathering Cards, or an NBA Top Shot Starter pack, you don't know what creature you're going to get.  This is why some NFT collectors purchase multiple NFTs at mint time.
     

  3. Exclusive Pre Party:
    We're having an exclusive party where you can mint a Carbon Creature NFT for 0.05 Eth.  To attend this party, you need to have your wallet address on a white list.  To get on that white list go to https://www.carbon-creatures.com/contact
     

  4. Random Selection:
    We are working hard to ensure that all NFT minting is random.  Since we won't have all of our artwork complete at our first drop day, we plan to publish the hash of our NFT Trait Data online ensuring everyone knows mint distribution was not manipulated.  We will be allowing credit card pre-purchasers to pre-select a creature, but by doing this you will not get a rare Carbon Creature.  If you want a rare carbon creature, you'll have to try your luck in the random minting process where you will not know what animal you receive.
     

  5. What Carbon Credits has Meta Carbon purchased?
    Meta Carbon has already pre-purchased 300 tonnes of carbon offsets.  They are in 3 tranches of 100 Tonnes and the retirement details can be seen here: VCS-981 & VCS-1052. The 3rd retirement data is coming soon and will be part of the Transparency page on the Carbon Creatures website.

    More carbon will be required.  When we sell 1,000+ NFTs in November, a minimum of another 4000+ tCO2 will be required.  Depending on the sale price of all the NFTs, more will be required.  We could easily be required to purchase over USD $100,000 worth of carbon and while we plan to do that as quickly as possible, but quality is crucially important so we will give ourselves up to 90 days to execute those purchases.  After the carbon is bought and retired, we will apply it all to the associated NFTs and you'll see the amount of CO2 in your Carbon Creature go up.
     

  6. Charity Donations:
    Our first donation is now complete with the Adoption of the Silverback Gorilla Agahebuzo from the Diane Fossey Gorilla Fund.  We are working on the adoption of several turtles from the Colombian Aquarium in support of mangrove and coral reef habitat. We also plan to work with the Rhino Forest Fund e.V. in Borneo which I met when I was visiting Orangutans in Borneo with my family.  We have also considered giving money to a larger foundation like The Nature Conservancy to ensure we are only giving to worthwhile causes.
     

  7. What are SDG Goals?
    The 17 Sustainable Development Goals were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015.  They provide a blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet and outline 17 areas in which we can alliviate poverty, improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.  This last bit is particularly relevant to Meta Carbon's mission. Our Carbon Creature SDG ratings all come from a trusted 3rd party Source, the Verra Carbon Registry and it's SD Vista Program.
     

  8. Accounting:
    We have set up separate wallets for all of the funds collected for carbon and charity.  This will allow us to provide full transparency for where the money goes.  However it will probably take some time for our carbon offset providers to be able to show a public receipt for transactions.  Adding this to our carbon accounting software platform will be a benefit for all in the industry.  Our Smart Contract which governs and mints the Carbon Creatures will automatically deposit Eth into 4 accounts: one for Meta Carbon, One for Carbon, One for Charity, and one for the Startup Fund.  You can see these deposits and when we can not pay charities in Eth or pay for carbon in Eth, we will publish evidence of the donations.
     

  9. What is the Product Road Map?
    All NFT projects talk about roadmaps, but many have no purpose other than to sell often silly art.  In the case of Carbon Creatures, we have a real purpose and one that is especially well suited to Blockchain.  Our roadmap is somewhat proprietary and confidential (what the Board Ape Club calls "Dope Shit"), but I can share a high level overview:

  • Transparency and Fractionalization: Our #1 priority is putting in place the infrastructure necessary to make it simple and fun for you to see where all your money has gone and what environmental benefit was generated.  In this process we need to break up carbon offsets into denominations less than 1 tonne.

  • Gamification: We're planning a game map. It's going to be epic.  It's going to be educational.  It's going to be fun.  It's going to be catnip for the media.  Just think of everything you need to do to maintain a habitat for endangered species and you can get a feel for this.

  • Breeding.  hmmm...  stay tuned for such an exciting topic, but I'm sure you'll all want to do it.
