WAX Launches Stunning vIRL NFTs Collection to Offset CO2 — Calls for Environmental Responsibility Across the Blockchain
- Leading [and first Carbon Neutral] Blockchain to Plant One Tree Per $1 Composted Via vIRL NFT Collection, Inspiring the Industry and Collectors to Take Responsibility for the Environment
The Worldwide Asset eXchange (WAX), also known as the King of NFTs, is set to release a stunning new collection of Carbon Offset vIRL NFTs on August 17, 2021. For every $1 “composted” in WAX’s sustainability driven collection, the National Forest Foundation will plant one tree sapling, each of which offsets an average of one tonne of carbon dioxide over its lifetime.
“WAX is officially setting higher standards for responsibility across the blockchain,” said William Quigley, Co-Founder of WAX. “We’ve been working tirelessly to ensure our blockchain is both energy efficient and inspires our community to act with the environment in mind. With Carbon Offset vIRL NFTs, we are confident we can all make a massive, positive difference together.”
The collection features four (4) card pack sizes, five (5) tree designs, six (6) rarities, and 30 stunning NFT variations. Each card is assigned a dollar value, which reflects the number of trees to be planted when it’s composted (or redeemed) as a vIRL®. For example, when a $5 vIRL® is redeemed, five (5) trees will be planted. Pack sizes, prices, and tree value are as follows:
- Get Planting — $19.99
8 cards total: Five (5) $1 cards and three (3) $5 cards
Number of trees: 20
- Go Greener — $49.99
12 cards total: Five (5) $1 cards, five (5) $5 cards, and two (2) $10 cards
Number of trees: 50
- Think Big — $149.99
2 cards total = one (1) $50 card and one (1) $100 card
Number of trees: 150
- Save the Planet — $199.99
18 cards total: Ten (10) $1 cards, four (4) $5 cards, two (2) $10 cards, one (1) $50 card, and one (1) $100 card

After the card is composted, it ceases to exist. The collection is unlimited, providing NFT collectors the ability to purchase 24 hours a day, seven days per week.

“Collectors can use Carbon Offset vIRL® NFTs to negate carbon emissions for a flight taken, miles driven, or to make a significant dent in the 27 tonne carbon dioxide average a single person outputs on average yearly,” said Quigley.
According to the USDA, a single mature tree offsets 48 pounds of carbon dioxide a year, and the average person outputs 27 tonnes of carbon dioxide yearly. By investing in $2,000 of Carbon Offset vIRL® NFTs yearly ($167 monthly), it’s possible to plant enough trees to go carbon neutral.
Operating on a Proof of Stake (PoS) system [which is over 100,000x more energy efficient than Ethereum], WAX [is the first carbon neutral blockchain.] [Producing only 110 tonnes of CO2 per year, about the equivalent of 5 average individual Americans, it] has already offset over 211 tonnes of CO2. With the addition of Carbon Offset vIRL® NFTs, the brand invites its community of more than 4.5 million collectors to take action to preserve the environment, while enjoying the art of collecting powerful NFTs.
Not only do Carbon Offset vIRL® NFTs serve a tangible environmental function, they are also perfect for collectors to admire, trade, and enjoy. Cards will be available on the WAX blockchain on August 17 at 1 pm EST.
