The power of cool.

Web3 is not guaranteed to be utopian, but we can make sure it’s damn cool.

Along came cool.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) states: “All pathways that limit global warming to 1.5°C with limited or no overshoot project the use of carbon dioxide removal (CDR) on the order of 100–1000 GtCO2 over the 21st century.”

In other words, we need to be removing carbon from our atmosphere at around 10 gigatonnes per year by the year 2050 in order to keep our planet, ya know, a place where species can thrive. And the best part — in principle, the technology we need to do this already exists.

So why aren’t we implementing it in every industry, everywhere? Because like all emerging and new technologies — it’s super expensive. With the technology we have right now this would cost some ten trillion dollars per year, or half the United States’ GDP. This money has to come from somewhere and currently far too few are offering it.

That was until we came along.

Let’s imagine for a second Islands of Cool could be the underlying smart contract of ‘the next’ Kitty, Punk, and Ape— all working to cool the planet on default… The Ape community alone traded a billion USDs in under 12 months. In months this could bigger than Elon Musk’s XPRIZE.

Prepare for your mind to be blown—you’ve never seen climate action like this.

It’s cool here.

Welcome to the Islands of Cool — building a new standard of cool. Harnessing smart contracts, to remove real world carbon and signaling an entirely new era for climate action.

Every NFT from the IoC project doubles as a Digital Carbon Sponge™, removing carbon from the moment of minting, and at each and every trade thereafter.

This is more than another NFT project. This is a ticket to re-imagine climate action and cool our planet.

This is just the beginning.

It all starts with Island One.

Cooling the Web3 since 2021.

Created by artist T.Wei, Island One is broken into 100 pieces, with each piece removing one tonne of carbon and doubling as exclusive membership to the Very Cool Club; a collective to reimagine climate action and take a seat at the table. These are the worlds first Digital Carbon Sponge™ NFTs.

We’re calling out to all Creators, Makers, Trailblazers, Entrepreneurs, Movers, Shakers, Inventors, Investors, Artists, Activists, Early Adopters, and literally anyone else who wants to make sure the future cool.

We’re the ones we’ve been waiting for. Come cool with us.
