Rarible Announces Nori Partner Integration
Rarible created this opportunity through a partnership with Nori, a blockchain-based carbon removal marketplace.
Users of Rareible.com can pair Nori Carbon Removal Tonnes (NRTs) with their NFTs so that their NFTs will display the Nori badge to show they are carbon-negative.
The badge will also link to the user’s Carbon Removal Certificate, a blockchain-based document that displays the carbon removal supplier, verifier, and issuer transparently.
The integration is still under development, and it will take some time until it’s ready for launch.
For now, Rarible is covering all the costs associated with carbon removal for all NFTs issued through its marketplace from today until Sunday, 5th December.
“We are thrilled about our partnership with Nori, who is at the forefront of carbon removal for the NFT industry. We are committed to our global community and planet and are actively taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint through cross-chain integrations and offering our members an opportunity to further reduce their footprint through Nori’s transparent carbon removal process.”Sunil Singhvi, Rarible’s Chief Business Development Officer
