Our Solution

Rainforest Coin (RFCoin) – a project that in the face of large-scale deforestation of the Rainforest and the destruction of animal habitats – offers a solution.

 

The Rainforest Coin (RFCoin) is an asset-backed cryptocurrency built on the foundation of blockchain technology and is issued by The Save The World Foundation who has set out to preserve 20 million hectors of Rainforest and the habitats of the endangered species of animals that call it home. Furthermore, The Rainforest Coin will be Asset backed by 20 Million hectors of Rainforest that will prove to be a extremely valuable asset to token holders.

 

We´re convinced that we can transform the traditional frameworks on which our economy is based, promoting a “green revolution” that protects ecosystems with High Conservation Values (HVC), through an earnest economic framework that benefits society as a whole and encourages growth for civilization, for the planet, and the integration of humanity as a benevolent intelligence in consideration of our galaxy.

 

In this sense, crypto currencies can become a global economic vehicle, in the sense that their exchange rate has no real boundaries. However, in order to achieve this, they must earn the trust of users and investors by ensuring backing with real, measurable, quantifiable and tangible assets.

 

In response to this need, RFCoin, a second-generation crypto currency, was created. Its value is sustained with real estate properties to include areas in Mexico and other parts of Latin America deemed Rainforests.

 

RFCoin is the crypto currency that´s changing economic paradigms, placing value on natural resources, biodiversity and its richness. In addition it has tangible resources such as the tourism industry, hotels, developments and companies, to name a few. Everything perfectly ordered in a production process that aims towards sustainable development.

The trees are the oldest living thing on this planet and they are worth saving. Their sprawling thickets, from canopy to forest floor, aren’t just the most biodiverse lands on the planet, they are more effective carbon sinks than those produced by even our most sophisticated technology. At the heart of these systems lie societies of indigenous people whose traditions, languages, and cultural knowledge broaden our perspectives and teach us new ways of understanding our relationship with our environment, sometimes people who comprise some of the very last uncontacted societies on Earth.

 

It is impossible to assign a value to the benefits that rainforests offer. Yet year after year, opportunists scrape these complex systems from the Earth for short-term gain – a crop, some cattle, an oil pad. An area of tropical forest the size of New York state is lost to these threats each year, destroying an ecosystem that took millennia to create.

Well-intentioned policies and a rotating deck of top-down conservation strategies often just reconfigure the terms and conditions of forest management. Meanwhile, the actual pressures of deforestation go unchecked on the ground, enabled by strapped governments, exploitative criminals, and a power disparity between those who live in the forests and those who would take it from them.

 

Reality is clear, short and to the point: we have little time to solve the big environmental problems we´re facing and to achieve this both governments and private companies, monitored and supported by organized civil society, should join efforts and work towards achieving this goal together.

 

While the world struggles to reduce global warming by two degrees centigrade (in regard to a pre-industrial era baseline) through compliance with the Paris Agreement, which will come into effect, if governments allow it, after COP26 (the 26th session of the Conference of the Parties) in December 2020; or an international team of scientists seeks to prevent a sixth mass extinction through the Global Deal for Nature (GDN), an ambitious plan that represents the opportunity to address climate deterioration while aiming to preserve all of the planet´s species (everything before 2030), several questions arise: How are we going to do it?, what are the priorities? How can we secure resources for future generations? How much time do we have?

 

10 year framework of actions for all countries to work towards saving the biological diversity, that´s the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and its Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020, including Aichi Biodiversity Targets. We can observe five concrete actions in this proposal:

2011

Strategic objective A

Address the underlying reasons that are causing the loss of biological diversity by encouraging biodiversity throughout the government and society.

2013

Strategic objective B

Reduce direct pressures on biodiversity and promote sustainable practices.

2014

Strategic objective C

Improve the status of biological diversity by safeguarding ecosystems, species and genetic variability.

2019

Strategic objective D

Increase the awareness of the benefits and the applicability for all of us within ecosystems and biodiversity.

2020

Strategic objective E

Create environmental mindfulness through participatory planning, knowledge management and the creation of conservation projects.
