Support coral conservation in the first #cleanNFT platform for coral reefs.
55% of corals globally are gone. We're on a mission to create a sustainable and transparent economic system around coral reefs to accelerate their come back.
Collaborating with coral organizations to showcase their work and give them access to a new source of funds.
Partnering with environmentally-conscious artists to create NFT collections around coral reefs.
We’re building an NFT platform on the Tezos blockchain to connect artists, coral foundations & collectors.
After an NFT is sold, the primary proceeds are divided between the artist and the coral foundation. Both artists and foundations take a percentage of every secondary sale.
The only way forward is together. We want to show the impact coral foundations are making all around the world, as a whole. Wanna see how we’re doing coral wise? Welcome to the hub.Explore Coral Hub
We love artists who trip about corals. We partner with incredible artists that have something to say about coral reefs. From illustrators, to macro photographers to sculptors. These guys are rockstars.Explore Artists

A NFT is a unique, digital item, that makes it possible to own digital art. Think of an NFT as a certificate of authenticity!
When you buy a piece of art in real life, you are usually given a piece of paper that documents the name of the piece, usually a photo of the work, as well as who the artist is and their signature. Often it also has other information on there like what gallery sold the piece, and the price it was purchased at. An NFT does this for digital art. 👾
While initially what we see is an image, at it’s core it’s a contract that specifies what the piece is and where it’s located, who the creator of the NFT is, its owner, as well as any owner in the past, and other information like the dates of any transaction involving this NFT as well as the prices they were made at.
NFTs themselves don’t affect the environment, but some of the blockchains they are created with do.
Most popular blockchains, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, are managed with a Proof-Of-Work consensus mechanism in which minting an NFT requires huge amounts of energy, sometimes even the equivalent amount of energy used to drive an SUV 800 miles!
However, blockchains that use Proof-Of-Stake consensus mechanisms such as Tezos are more environmentally friendly because the amount of energy they use to mint an NFT is way less than a proof-of-work blockchain.
For a real life example, to mint an NFT consumes about the same amount of energy of sending an email or a tweet. Read more about Tezos in our Blockchain Sustainability Report.
A blockchain is a decentralized, append-only database. What this means is that it’s a database that instead of being hosted in single place or owned by a single entity, it’s replicated through a network of computers. Append-only means that you can only add information to the database, you cannot modify or erase it.
Tezos is an energy-efficient, Proof of Stake blockchain where developers, artists and people all around the world are building and engaging with one another. We have chosen to use Tezos as the blockchain that powers Nemo because of its energy efficiency, lively artist community, and strong focus on security and user experience.
A wallet is your passport to the blockchain! It’s where you have access to your funds, your NFTs, and allows you to make transactions. For those without NFT or crypto experience we recommend using Kukai, a wallet which allows you to interact with the Tezos blockchain and collect NFTs by using your Gmail, Facebook, Twitter or Reddit accounts, instead of having to manage private and public keys or understand the more complex aspects of using a blockchain.read our how to buy and NFT document here.

Here’s a video explaining how to create your Kukai wallet
In order to use any blockchain, you need to have its currency or coin. The Tezos blockchain uses the Tezos currency, also known as XTZ.
You can buy it on any exchange like Coinbase or Kraken, and also directly on your Kukai wallet through a service called Moonpay. Here’s a video explaining how to buy XTZ
