How to buy NCT on SushiSwap

Toucan Protocol recently introduced NCT - the Nature Carbon Tonne 🌳

The NCT contract address is: 0xd838290e877e0188a4a44700463419ed96c16107

This is the second carbon pool launched on the Toucan Protocol. Our first carbon pool β€” BCT β€” has a permissive design that accepts all carbon credit types (solar, wind, nature-based, etc.).

Introducing NCT

The Nature Carbon Pool that backs NCT is more restrictive: it only accepts carbon tokens that are created with nature-based methodologies from vintages of 2012 onwards. Check out Introducing NCT: Nature Carbon Tonne for full details.

NCT is a high quality, nature-based carbon token to offset emissions! ✨
