Coral reefs cover about 0.1 % of the ocean’s but they nurture 25 % of the world’s marine species.
Coral reefs are dying because of climate change.Major coral bleaching events are observed during 1998, 2016, 2017 and 2020.
Coral bleaching is vulnerable to coral reefs.
Coral and algae depend on each other to survive.
Corals have a symbiotic relationship with microscopic algae called zooxanthellae that live in their tissues. These algae are the coral’s primary food source and give them their color.
If the coral stressed then algae leaves the coral.
When the symbiotic relationship becomes stressed due to increased ocean temperature or pollution, the algae leave the coral’s tissue.
After that the Coral is left bleached and vulnerable.
Without the algae, the coral loses its major source of food, turns white or very pale, and is more susceptible to disease.
4,600 square miles of coral reefs worldwide are predicted to be killed in 1 year!
What kills Coral Reefs :-
More than 50% of corals are under threat in recent years
Currently only 2 successful types of coral planting experiment
Pain Points :-
Coral Conservation Structures Build in 22 Months
Experienced Coral Planting 2018-2020

Digital Nature is a virtual world to own pieces of plot in the underwater world, with respective multiple of squares eg: 1x1, 2x2, 3x3 etc.
A curated coral species will be generated and assigned to the plot selected.
When a plot is purchased, it will allow:
The corals are planted in real world.
Secure desirable locations from the finite amount of plots in the underwater world.
Each piece of island is corresponding to a coral fundraising project.
Users can participate in the NFT trading.
Get constant updates of the real corals growth in particular project.
Continue to contribute to ongoing coral conversation works by trading coral plot NFT. The team will get royalty fee from each sales.
There will be 5 rounds of sales. Presale rounds 1, 2, 3 and 4 will be rounds of small durations will discounts. The 5th round, which is the final public sale, will be an open-ended duration round until all plots are sold out.
All plots can be purchased via ethereum (ETH), with fixed price in USD.
