Creating a Circular Economy
Nemus acquires at-risk land in the rainforest and creates a series of collectible NFTs, each tied to a unique geolocation within the land. A portion of sales from NFTs pays for operations and the purchase of the land, while the remaining proceeds are stored in the Nemus Treasury. With the help of the Nemus DAO, the Treasury then funds economic and social activity on the land.
The rainforest is overflowing with natural resources. Without compromising the land or its biodiversity, Nemus establishes sustainable activities that benefit the entire ecosystem.
Nemus initiatives include local communities by creating commercial and social opportunities that connect both digital and real-world economies.
Collectors of the Nemus NFT, Guardians, can participate in the Nemus DAO to ensure that treasury funds are used as a force for good; protecting and conserving the land.
Nemus NFTs are the keys to the forest. Holders unlock rewards and participation in the DAO, forming a lasting legacy between themselves and the rainforest.
The Nemus Ecosystem
We all have a role to play in the future of our planet. Below we highlight the key participants that will contribute to a circular economy, where everyone can benefit from doing good.

On the ground
Although many of us may not think of land as being participatory, it is at the very center of what Nemus does. For thousands of years land has provided for us. It deserves our protection. Through responsible use of its resources we can strike a balance with the land, creating value for us all.
There are over three million species present in the Amazon, making it the most biodiverse area on our planet. Nemus aims to raise awareness for this diversity by highlighting its unique flora and fauna on each NFT card, as well as throughout the online experience.
Directly or indirectly, each of the activities that Nemus implements will have a positive impact on the local communities living within and around the rainforest, as people find new means to work, generate income and/or improve their quality of life.
Descendants of the original Amazonian tribes still live in close-knit, communal villages deep within the jungle. Most are cut off from the outside world, far from education and medicine. Through face-to-face conversations and the deepest respect to their ways of life, Nemus will give them access to the resources they have requested.
As Nemus grows to include a variety of initiatives on the land, so too will its list of partners. Partners are an essential part of the ecosystem as they bring specialized products, services and advisory to accelerate sustainability both on the land and within Nemus.
In the ether
Guardians are the primary driver of activity in the ecosystem. Guardians have the ability to purchase NFTs, and either conserve, or explore these NFTs to enhance their collection. They also play a pivotal role in deciding the types of activities that take place on the land through participation in the Nemus DAO.
The Nemus DAO will be composed of Guardians and the Nemus Foundation, and will vote on proposals ranging from which sponsors are accepted, to which activities are adopted on the land, along with a variety of other economic levers. Ultimately, the DAO is responsible for releasing funds from the treasury for the various initiatives Nemus undertakes.
The Nemus Foundation is composed of the founding team and operational teams within Nemus and implements activity within the real world. The Foundation handles securing land, implementing sustainable activities on the land, and preparing and issuing land drops for Guardians to participate in. Its members will be a guiding hand for the DAO at the outset, until other participants become tuned into activities on the actual land.
Sponsors participate in the ecosystem by providing rewards for the Guardians in the form of NEA tokens. Ultimately, once a drop or region is brought to a required level of sustainability, they too can benefit from the value of carbon sequestration on the land.
In an effort to raise awareness for the biodiversity in the rainforest, Nemus will feature original art from a diverse range of talented artists. Each drop will be part of a wider collection celebrating the flora and fauna of the rainforest and creates an opportunity for Guardians to acquire scarce artwork. As artists pour their talents into each drop to attract more Guardians, secondary sales will give back to the artist in perpetuity.
