Earth.com & PlantSnap

The goal is to help the planet by partnering with scientists around the world to help combat and alleviate the damage being done to the ecosystem by climate change.

Earth.com is the premier internet destination for those who care about our planet and environment and who want to make a difference. Founded by Eric Ralls, Earth.com, inc. is headquartered in Telluride, CO and was launched on October 1, 2016. Eric has went on to create PlantSnap, a mobile app with over 42m downloads and the biggest scientific database of plants. PlantSnap has become a fun and easy for the young generations to interact with nature and grow up in the spirit of protecting this amazing planet we live on.

The Idea

After meeting with Eric, we realized our missions were one in the same. At Earth Wallet, our mission is to create a better planet by empowering the next generation technology to protect Earth with good governance and the right incentives. So we thought, what if there was a way to make a profit by taking action and cleaning up our environment, climate, and other issues that we face.

This idea is to solve a number of problems. The first is that most impact projects or ESG frameworks have no tangible metrics or targets on how companies are actually helping the environment. Carbon Credits and other metrics end up being largely subjective and hard to monitor or prevent fraud. The second is that if humanity wants to change its ways, this is only really achieved by changing our own individual actions, the best way to do this is to make it fun (and profitable) to participate in creating a better planet.

Digital Assets

The next evolution of the internet will transform humanity from a consumer economy to a creator economy.

In the past year, more than $1 Trillion of value was created via digital assets on decentralized blockchains such as Ethereum. These digital assets are minted without central custodian, and enable the creators to own their data and content contributions to things like social networks, NFT platforms, and other yet to be launched applications. This new internet revolution is known as Web3.0, and is creates an opportunity to change the business models from ad and consumption driven Society, to a more sustainable Society.

The most popular form of digital asset this year is the NFT (non-fungible token), which are typically created as a unique collection of digital assets, such as the NBA Top Shots (100m value created), cryptokitties, cryptopunks, and hundreds of others. Several notable celebrities have also begun issuing their art and media as NFT's, bypassing the rent seeking financiers and giving the proceeds directly to charities and social impact causes they would rather see thrive instead.

The Earth.com NFT Collection

In collaboration with PlantSnap, Earth Wallet is proud to announce the launch of the Earth.com NFT. Today, PlantSnap is one of the most used mobile apps on the app store, has over 42m downloads, and a decentralized community of planet lovers that has successfully mapped 90% of every tree and plant on Earth, with a goal to map the rest by 2022.

To reward their community for their heroic actions in creating a better planet, Earth Wallet will issue a new NFT for every plant into the Earth NFT Collection. Owners can claim their token by simply visiting nft.earth.com, signing in with their PlantSnap account to prove ownership. Earth NFTs will be tradeable on decentralized exchanges directly through Earth Wallet, rarity will be determined by the number of snaps a plant has, and new discoverees of plants and trees will be rewarded an exlusive Earth.com NFT.

To make things even better, the proceeds from any Earth.com NFT sales will go directly to the NFT owners themselves (early and future PlantSnap users), and a 2% royalty will go to Wildlife Conservation and Reforestation projects. The specific

The Future

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors. We borrow it from our children.

With this new direction, Earth.com will pioneer a new future for life on Earth in a way that has never been done before. We hope to show the world how we can unite humanity towards creating a better planet for all life on Earth. To get started, visit nft.earth.com to claim your digital assets, or download Plantsnap.com to start creating new ones and a better planet! https://www.earth.com/take-action-save-earth/

What may be less obvious are the human-caused changes to the Earth that aren’t so beautiful. Oceans are rising and becoming more acidic, unpredictable weather patterns are emerging, and entire species are vanishing along with our forests.
