VISA, come cool with us.

Dear Visa,

We saw you like NFTs and agree they will play an “important role” in the future of retail, social media and entertainment. We like your punk — it’s cute.

That mohawk, mmm. #newprofilepic

$150,000 was a pretty big purchase in order to gain “a firsthand understanding of the infrastructure requirements for a global brand to purchase, store, and leverage an NFT”. But, hey, we totally agree NFTs are going to be really important for your clients and partners.

Another thing that’s important, is a planet that isn’t stuffed (climate wise) and this part happens to be our jam… so have we got the deal for you: first hand understanding for the new chapter of digital commerce, that includes environmental stewardship, to support creators driving the future of NFT-commerce.

Welcome to the Islands of Cool, kickstarting a new standard for NFTs. An infrastructure layer, where limitless creativity meets human innovation to completely reimagine climate action. We call it the Digital Carbon Sponge™.

In search of our earliest supporters, we’ve released Island One. A 1/1 Island illustration drawn by artist T.Wei and then broken into 100 smaller pieces. Each piece removing 1 tonne of carbon, is the first ever Digital Carbon Sponge™ and doubling as a membership to the Very Cool Club — which gives the owner a seat at the table for what we’re building.

For a limited time, we’ve reserved one for your corporate collection — it even has a little V symbol on it for you.

The ‘coolest’ NFT on the planet.

You can purchase this carbon removing NFT for $150,001. That’s right, just $1 more than what you paid for CryptoPunk 7610.

As mentioned this isn’t any ordinary NFT purchase, this is one of the first ever collection of Digital Carbon Sponge™ NFTs, which exist to remove carbon — in perpetuity. To firm up our intent, we will use every single penny of that purchase price to remove more carbon. Meaning this piece can remove over 1,000 tonnes, and rightly deem it the ‘coolest NFT on the planet’.

We thought that’s something you might wanna get in on? Oh, and you’ll own all the carbon credits too — these Digital Carbon Sponges are a two-for-one kinda asset: art+carbon.

And yes, we accept credit card for payment.

If you can’t rustle up the cash, we’d could consider a trade: CryptoPunk 7610 for Island One — D04 (which we will likely sell and then buy carbon). That would give you more first hand experience at swapping NFTs and the like — up to you.

The offer is open until midnight Jan 31st 2022 (PST). We get it we’re early, so there’s a good chance you won’t take up this offer. If that’s the case, we will then open the offer to others.

Either way we still like your punk and Islands of Cool will push on, but this could be the start of something really important… so you may want to get in.

Come cool with us.

It’s cool where we’re going and you should come to.
