Natuscoin: strengthening the conservation of private natural reserves through environmental cryptoassets.

What is Natuscoin?

Natuscoin is an innovative environmental cryptoasset system created to strengthen the network of private environmental conservation reserves (private reserves) in Brazil and other countries. The Natuscoin system is designed to generate benefits for participants.

Potential participants in the Natuscoin system are those interested in:
1) neutralize their carbon emissions,
2) offset their water consumption,
3) contribute to the conservation of threatened species,
4) contribute to the preservation of private reserves, generating multiple ecosystem benefits to society.

The Natuscoin system is under development, and its initial focus is Brazil's private reserves, which form one of the largest privately protected area systems in the world. This includes Private Natural Heritage Reserve (RPPNs) on Amazon and other Brazilian biomes, as well as different types of private protected areas.

After the initial stage, the system will include private reserves located in other countries.

Do you know what the RPPNs are?

RPPNs are created voluntarily and in perpetuity by landowners, through a formal designation by governmental agencies. The RPPNs aim to protect biodiversity, recover natural landscapes, provide ecosystem services essential for human well-being, and offer research, education, and recreation opportunities when the owner's consent is obtained.

Activities such as management or extraction of natural resources, cutting of trees, agriculture, livestock production are prohibited in RPPN because this private reserve is a type of protected area very restrictive when it comes to its use.

RPPNs are a type of protected area very restrictive when it comes to its use. Management or extraction of natural resources, cutting of trees, agriculture, livestock production are forbidden activities.

The Natuscoin system aims to strengthen the conservation of RPPNs networks and other private reserves.
