Join a global citizen-led community tackling climate change in the Ocean

About

We are a DAO-based platform that facilitates fundraising for our Operating Partners, who are true ocean-blue ‘Captain Planets’ engaged in reversing the impact of climate change on fragile coral reefs and coastal communities in the Coral Triangle.

Deep 6 means to destroy or dispose of something overboard

The planet releases 40 gigaton of carbon dioxide (C02) every year. We need to remove as much as 10 gigaton of CO2 per year by 2050 to avoid the worst effects of climate change.

Carbon removal rebalances the Earth’s carbon cycle by achieving net negative emissions and sequestering CO2 durably.

The Ocean plays a crucial role in taking up CO2 from the atmosphere. It absorbs 2.9 gigaton of carbon every year.

Our solution to removing CO2 lies in “deep six-ing carbon” IRRETRIEVABLY and benignly in the Ocean.

Coral reefs in the Coral Triangle are dying

Corals absorb 9 megaton of CO2 (as CaCO3) every year. They simply cannot cope with that much carbon which is why they are DYING OFFat catastrophic rates.CO2 raises water temperature and changes the ocean’s pH balance to make it more acidic and toxic to marine ecosystems.

25% of marine life calls the coral reef home

1 BILLION people depend on coral reefs for their livelihood and sustenance

$9.9 TRILLION annual global value of coral reef services provided to humanity

93,000 MILES of shoreline in 100 countries are protected by reefs

50% of coral reefs have already been lost

90% of coral reefs are projected to be extinct by 2030

Coral reefs in the Coral Triangle are dying

The Coral Triangle is a marine area named for its staggering number of corals.

Solutions scaled up over this vast area can reverse the impact of climate change on fragile coral reefs and coastal communities at a gigaton scale.

There is no single ‘magic bullet’ to save the Triangle’s coral reefs

Many of our Operating Partners are engaged in area-based conservation in the Coral Triangle. Others are based internationally on technology solutions that can be applied in the Triangle.

They are vetted on their commitment and ability to achieve tangible results and generate potential revenue from four key themes that combine to form a sustainable financial strategy.

There is no single ‘magic bullet’ to save the Triangle’s coral reefs

PROTECT

Coral reefs need to be protected from further loss and degradation. Creating marine protected areas are the most effective conservation ‘tool’.

TRANSFORM

Coastal societies need to find alternative livelihoods and limit their dependence on coral reefs and related ecosystems.

RESTORE

Coral reefs need help to recover from severe degradation. Innovative techniques are proving to be successful and include technology to restore coral at scale.

RECOVER

Coral reefs and dependant communities need to build resilience so they can recover from major shocks, e.g. natural disasters, which can lead to a return to unsustainable practices.

For Good

We are taking a radical approach to
fundraising with Cryptocurrency & NFT

We promote the benefits of “blockchain for good” using cryptocurrency and NFT to enable Operating Partners to connect directly with a global community of donors who understand that eco-friendly innovation is changing crypto.

Funding required for coral reef protection needs to increase by 7x the current level to be effective.

Very little funding trickles down to smaller-scale initiatives, like our Operating Partners who find it hard to fund their projects. They would like to develop revenue generating projects like ecotourism so they can be self funding.

Some Operating Partners use personal bank accounts to receive donations which puts off donors. Blockchain guarantees transparency, the flow of funding is tracked and verified throughout. The chances of manipulating funds are minimal.

Banking transactions conducted via blockchain are ‘frictionless’, they reduce intermediaries in finance so more of the donation goes to people that can use it wisely.

NFT sales, one of our funding options, leverage social media to gain momentum for fundraising efforts by reaching out to investors, enthusiasts and influencers far beyond the usual reach of Operating Partners.

Participate &
Profit

We encourage interaction
between our communities

We will maximize impact and facilitate transformative change by creating a community of donors, investors and funding recipients that enables everyone involved to PARTICIPATE in breakthrough decisions about climate change and PROFIT from their involvement.

ROADMAP PHASE 1

Release white paper and launch password protected website for Operational Partners.

Form DAO and appoint DAO Guardians who will confirm our first ten operational partner projects.

Complete NFT design and development requirements.

Start socials for whitelisting, open our DISCORD channel.

Limited marketing to whales and selected investors.

Design and develop NFT Investor website.

ROADMAP PHASE 2

Launch NFT Investor website and commence pre-sales mint. Financial, technical and operational partners will be invited to the pre-sales mint.

Build investor community. Whitelisted investors receive regular mail drops and will be able to mint their NFT prior to the public sale.

Minting takes place on NFT Investor website. 24hrs after our pre-sale. Our team will monitor the market to ensure we release at a time that is beneficial to investors.

ROADMAP PHASE 3

Open eggs (up to a month after the mints).

Selection and voting for the next ten Operational Partner projects. NFT Investors interact with the DAO Guardians on our DISCORD channel to make the selection and voting takes place.

Build real world utility: our partners will develop a range of semi-fungible tokens that offer investors real and virtual world experiences and entertainment, connected to coral reef conservation.
