Inspired by the games of Tamagotchi and Pokemon GO the team is building a platform to reach bigger impact than just single donations.

"The concept we're trying to integrate is having your in-game actions really impact the real world. As you're planting trees, you're actually contributing to real trees being planted. As you're hiring rangers in the game, we're actually hiring, like paying rangers, in the real world to protect these rare species. If you're expanding your land, we're protecting real, fragile ecosystems," Arch described.

The soft launch is planned for October, but many NFTs of endangered species have already been launched.
