Xion Finance Joins Forces with ForestNation & Unifty to Combat Deforestation with NFTs🌲

First impactful and sustainable NFT farm for the xDAI chain community🌲

6 April 2021, Johannesburg, South Africa — Xion Finance is a decentralized finance application where users can earn a passive income on their crypto. The cross-chain token called XGT(Xion Global Token) can be used for yield farming, processing e-commerce payments, minting rewards and simple value transfers. Xion has now partnered with ForestNation & Unifty to bring you reforestation NFTs(Non-Fungible Tokens) on Unifty, OpenSea and Rarible.

ForestNation is a for-profit sustainable business that offers products and services that unite environmental, social and commercial business goals which allows for organisations or individual to reforest the planet and reconnect with nature.

The partnership with Xion Finance means that every time you purchase/redeem an NFT, your donation will go to communities severely affected by deforestation, where all different kinds of trees will be planted. This donation will fund the first 6 to 9 months growth of the trees in a nursery, before they’re planted in the XION FOREST (Tanzania & Haiti)🌳 Thus, creating sustainable livelihoods — creating rich futures for children; creating leadership roles for women; creating rich local economies.

Any additional capital received from your NFT redemption/purchase will go towards Xion Finance, for development and marketing purposes. This is the first step towards a sustainable future for Xion.

Papaya & Mango 🥭

Peach 🍑 & Banana 🍌

Loquat & Orange 🍊

Moringa 🌿 & Plum 🍈

Depending on which reforestation NFT you redeem/purchase on one or all of the marketplaces(Unifty, OpenSea, Rarible), a certain amount of tress will be planted in the Xion Forest. Your donation will go straight to the communities/farmers, where 70% of the seeds planted will be fruit trees and 30% will be wood species. This way, the reforestation NFT program is able to provide food security and sustainable livelihoods with a 12–18 month gestation to bear fruit.

Just think about it, you are now not only farming XGT & NFTs but actually growing trees around the world for those affected by deforestation 🪵. Now you will be able to call yourself a farmer of both worlds!

NFTs have been known to provide ownership of certain physical and digital assets, especially in the art space. However, these NFTs provide far more value as they not only create sustainable livelihoods in communities affected by deforestation, but are aligned to the 17 United Nations sustainable development goals.

Where & how to get these reforestation NFTs?

1. Unifty.io

In partnership with Unifty, we have created the very 1st impactful and sustainable NFT farm for the xDAI chain community. Our WXDAI-XGT farmers on Xion.Finance and/or Honeyswap have been waiting to utilize their LP tokens and here it is. You will now be able to earn an increased APY from your staked LP tokens, plant trees when redeeming NFT/s and create sustainable livelihoods in communities affected by deforestation. An NFT farm for the Xion Forest 🌲

  1. WXDAI-XGT liquidity pool tokens(UNI-V2) acquired from either Xion.Finance or on Honeyswap must be staked on either 1 and/or all 3 different reforestation NFTs to earn seed points and 20% boosted APY(valid for 1 month). Unlimited stake amount and check each NFT to see how many points you need to redeem/purchase the NFT with xDAI. The 1 month APY boost for LP tokens staked, will be deactivated if your LP tokens are withdrawn/unstaked. This prevents users from transferring their LP tokens from 1 wallet to another, since the APY boost is only valid for 1 month per user.
  2. Once enough points have been earned from staking your LP tokens, you will then be able to redeem your NFT/s with xDAI. Each NFT has a different redeemable/purchase amounts in xDAI. Check the “🌲 3 Reforestation NFTs 🌳” descriptions above for more info ⬆️
  3. On redemption, your donation will be collected and a portion will be sent to the Xion Forest communities in either Tanzania and/or Haiti to plant x amount of trees depending on what NFT you’ve redeemed. The rest of the amount paid for your NFT/s will go towards Xion Global for development and marketing purposes.
  4. Furthermore, you will also earn up to 200% constant APY in XGT every month for 24 months, by holding onto your NFT/s. The constant APY is dependent on what NFT you hold and is distributed every 5 seconds for 24 months. If you transfer NFT ownership, then the distribution will continue until 24 months have been issued. This means the APY will not restart when ownership is changed, the 24 months is limited to each NFT.

Binance Smart Chain reforestation NFT farm on Unifty is coming soon for BNB-XGT LP holders!

2. OpenSea

If you don’t want to stake WXDAI-XGT LP tokens(UNI-V2) for an increased APY & prefer the Ethereum Mainnet, then you can simply head to OpenSea where you can directly purchase these reforestation NFTs with ETH, DAI, USDC or WETH. You can simply purchase them upfront to start earning up to 200% APY in XGT over 24 months and get x amount of trees planted in the Xion Forest (Tanzania and/or Haiti)🌲 The constant APY is dependent on what NFT you hold.

3. Rarible

Same goes for Rarible. If you don’t wish to stake WXDAI-XGT LP tokens(UNI-V2) for an increased APY & prefer the Ethereum Mainnet, then you can also simply head to Rarible to either bid on the reforestation NFT/s or buy them upfront with ETH. As soon as you are an owner of 1 and/or 3 of these NFT/s, you will earn up to 200% APY in XGT over 24 months and get x amount of trees planted in the Xion Forest (Tanzania and/or Haiti) 🌳 The constant APY is dependent on what NFT you hold.

Reports on The Xion Forest Impact 📜

This is an example of one of the companies using ForestNation to create their very own forest. Xion Global will release a report to show the NFT holders, stakers, bidders and communities what impact the trees have made on this Earth 🌍

This includes but not limited to: GPS polygons of the growing XION Forest that is visible via online mapping, annual / Bi-Annual carbon sequestration numbers for reporting, social and general forest impact stats. As soon as we’ve planted 10,000 trees, photos from the Xion Forest nurseries will be released and once 6–9 months have past by after 20,000 trees have been planted, you will get to see the Xion Forest in real time. Thereafter, continuous reports will be released to watch the Xion Forest grow and for insights into the sustainable livelihoods created for these communities.

Got your NFTs but want to plant more trees? 🌲

Every time you swap xDAI to XGT on Xion Finance, you will be offered the option to purchase 1 random tree(based off the 10 different tree species) for $0.80 in xDAI.

This is a simple tick box that will add an extra transaction when swapping xDAI>XGT and for every $0.80 donation, 1 tree will be planted. Once the transactions are successful, you will be able to view your donation that has been sent into the Xion Forest wallet address.

At the end of every month, these donations will be sent to ForestNation and all the trees will be planted in the Xion Forest in either Tanzania or Haiti. The price to plant in Tanzania is $0.30 per tree and the price to plant in Haiti is $0.60 per tree. Any additional capital received from your $0.80 donation/s will go towards Xion Finance, for development and marketing purposes.

What’s Coming up Next?

Xion is not stopping here, we will be potentially partnering with one of the leading global risk intelligence providers for agriculture, that enables data-driven financial and environmental services 🗺️ This will allow farmers to not only be geo validated for liquidity/income, carbon credit but allow NFT holders to get access to in depth data of every Xion Forest in different regions to see exactly what their donations are doing and where they are going etc. We’ve got big sustainable plans for Xion Global 🌳 This will be phase 2 of our reforestation NFT campaign.

This impactful and powerful partnerships shows Xion Global’s commitment to not only transforming the world of DeFi & NFTs, but to leave a real and sustainable legacy in the real world which is certain to be something that will grow and develop in the digital and real world.
