Get your rig, and climb on board, because new (re)generative builder tooling is here! Today, we’re excited to announce our partnership with Tableland.
What is Tableland?
Tableland enables builders to create new web3 experiences with dynamic and composable table building blocks. To demonstrate the power of the protocol, the team is launching Tableland Rigs. Rigs are unique NFTs with traits that can change over time based on programmable (on-chain) rules.
Further, Tableland is taking climate action serious – they are compensating for the NFT mint by retiring NCT (carbon credits produced with nature-based methodologies). Over time, validators will be onboarded to Tableland’s network, and further emissions will be calculated and compensated for as well.
The initial launch will involve manual retirements of NCT. But the team is considering using our OffsetHelper (a contract that makes carbon offsetting easy) for automated climate action in the future.
Carson Farmer from the Tableland team explains:
The Web3 ecosystem needs to think responsibly and proactively about our environmental impact. Climate action must be woven into the fabric of our organisations and protocols. This is why Tableland is so excited to be working with Toucan infrastructure. Their approach to tokenizing carbon in a way that is both easy to understand and easy to automate enables our community to build toward an economically and environmentally sustainable network from day one.
Rob Schmitt, COO of Toucan, says of the partnership:
We’re thrilled to be working with the team at Tableland. Their protocol is providing builders with tooling to create climate-positive NFT collections, apps, and broader experiences throughout the metaverse. This is exactly what’s needed to integrate climate action natively within Web3.
A new vision of the web
In Tablelands vision of the web, builders can implement dynamism in new ways across gaming, art, music, culture, and ultimately, humanity. Some examples of what's possible with the Tableland protocol:
- Build games where assets are NFTs that evolve
- Launch platforms of user owned content
- Track and manage files on IPFS
- Build advanced gating and paywalls based on NFTs
- Create mutable collectables for the metaverse
… and much more. Get further details by exploring Tableland use cases.
Toucan at a glance
Toucan is building the technology to bring the world's supply of carbon credits onto energy-efficient blockchains and turn them into tokens that anyone can use. This paves the way for a more efficient and scalable global carbon market. It puts carbon at the heart of decentralized finance and unleashes a transparent flow of money directly into climate projects that make a difference.
Tableland and Toucan both sit at different posts of the frontier of Web3. We’re here to support climate-aligned builders with tools, resources, and rewards.
Let’s build a new web, together.
