Crypto Goes Green for Earth Day (Tokens = Carbon Credits)

With larger institutional and corporate investors now flooding into the crypto market, it’s become imperative that crypto cleans up it’s act of huge energy use and emissions (often from Chinese coal plants!).

Now a Brazilian company helmed by a Stanford and Credit Suisse alum, MOSS, is poised to change the dynamic with their MCO2 token that lets crypto investors clean up their carbon acts by buying and burning their token.

Each token is worth one carbon credit that takes 1 ton of CO2 out of the air. MOSS uses the money from selling the credits/tokens on impactful projects to save the Amazon, the lungs of the world! And they are sponsoring and carbon neutralizing one of the world’s most popular soccer/futbol teams, Rio’s Flamengo to celebrate! Their logo will be on the team’s socks, so they are covering their carbon and real footprints!
