MOSS aims to promote the preservation of the environment through a market solution, which includes democratization and development of the carbon credit market through MCO2 tokens. In order to make this happen, MOSS buys carbon credits from high-quality environmental projects in the Amazon Forest (projects that emit, certify and sell credits) and that avoid or capture CO2 emissions to the atmosphere. Moss allows companies and individuals to buy these credits on its 100% digital platform, making a historically complex process simple and transparent using blockchain.
The credits are certified by global institutions, such as VCS Standard, Social Carbon and CCB Standards, which gives them credibility and guarantees that the emission of one ton of carbon equivalent was avoided in certain year. Moreover, the credits are blockchain encrypted to ensure there are no duplicate sales. Buyers can use the credits to neutralize their carbon footprint.
MOSS’s mission is to combat climate change and preserve the Amazon Forest. In just one year since it was founded, MOSS has traded more than 1.3 million carbon credits and indirectly preserved 1MM ha of the Amazon forest (equivalent to the size of Lebanon).
In 2020 we completed a seed round and are now completing a series A round with several of the most prestigious C-level, company owners and sustainability authorities in Brazil and managed to secure carbon contracts for the next 4 years (20mm tons, 4x Brazil's annual supply).
We have also conducted the largest digital asset listing in Latam history and the first south american crypto asset to be listed on Gemini and Coinbase.
