What is the schedule of the TREECYCLE project?
The implementation of the project started with a pre-token sale and an HTO (hybrid token offering). The general goal is to plant as many trees as possible.
The HTO will be ending by a certain date and not by selling a set amount of TREE. After a successful HTO TREE and TreeCoin are generated by a Genesis process on our blockchain. The more funds are raised, the better for the project, as it will lead to a larger number of planted trees.
What does TREECYCLE do?
The TREECYCLE project creates an ecosystem by using TREE (asset tokens) which include the right to benefit from timber sales. In addition, with TreeCoin (payment token) as currency, a means payment method is created within its own ecosystem. Thus the TreeCycle project establishes an ecosystem using blockchain technology to add value for all participating parties.
Investors can directly participate in the profitability of our eucalyptus trees. Many investors around the world are successfully investing in land in Paraguay. Seeing its success so far, we are looking for ways to make this form of investing accessible to a broader group of small and private investors.
What is TREECYCLE and what are its goals?
TREECYCLE is sustainable for everyone. It is a movement to achieve a change in awareness in the field of capital investment. Through earned profits, TREECYCLE wants to give back to the world and build bridges between ecology and economy. The goal is to make the world greener, by encouraging investment in trees and their sustainable growth.
The investment in eucalyptus trees is implemented by our digital asset, TREE. Through the gradual development of new business areas, TreeCoin is established as a new payment method and introduced as currency within the TreeCoin economy. All of our employees and cooperation partners are to be partially compensated in TreeCoin, for example.
We aim to reforest an area of about 10,000 hectares with 10 million trees for the near future. TREECYCLE wants to help preserve the world for future generations.
Do people in Paraguay benefit from the activities of TREECYCLE?
To promote the economic and social development of Paraguay law 117/91 on foreign investment encourages domestic and foreign investment. Foreign investors have the same guarantees, rights and obligations as an domestic investor. All guarantees, rights and obligations for foreign investments, which the government of Paraguay has agreed with other countries or international organizations through bilateral or multilateral instruments, apply to the respective national investments.
In addition, we compensate labor above the relative standard of the country and have started various charity projects.
Why did we decide to start in Paraguay?
We have compared many potential countries by a serious selection process. Each country has been assessed by how well it meets the aspects we have defined as our priorities:
- Are sufficient water resources available?
- Are there earthquakes? Are there tectonic plate displacements?
- What is the legal situation?
- Is the free convertibility of currencies allowed?
- Is the national language quite widespread?
- Which religious denominations are there?
- Is it possible to acquire property as a European?
- Does the country have oil and/or gas?
After this process, there was only one country left, and that was Paraguay. The only down point of Paraguay is that it has no access to the sea, which however is trumped by its enormous water reserves. The other side of the coin is that the country is not overrun by tourists and its resources can be used elsewhere.
Why Paraguay? Do we only work there?
From an economic point of view Paraguay has a manageable market, which can be assessed regionally. With its 7 million inhabitants Paraguay is the most stable economy in Latin America. The country has a very stable price index and exchange rate, which is very important for new investors who see the potential of this country. Furthermore, trees here are growing fast until they are harvested for the first time (after 4 years). There is enough water on the surface, to supply the whole country with hydroelectric power, which Paraguay uses as its ecologically clean energy.
Reforestating Paraguay is only the beginning of the world. TREECYCLE starts in this country, because that is where we have our headquarters and our networkshave. We, as founders of TREECYCLE, also help other partners with reforestation in Spain and Australia. In Paraguay we are working together with people we have known and trust since 12 years.
The government of Paraguay has recognized the emerging problems caused by deforestating native forests. Therefore, projects like TREECYCLE are highly supported and subsidized. The country itself also provides land for good causes.
How do we aquire our land?
We only use fallow land that has been cleared by others or burned down, where nothing grows except grass.
Is a monoculture not bad for nature?
In our case monoculture is the savior for the native forests in Paraguay. Through our industrial reforestation further deforestation of the remaining native forest is prevented.
Fallow land is utilized for reforestation to provide urgently needed industrial wood. Otherwise wood demand would be met with the remains of the native forest. In addition, we protect the existing native forests we acquired with our land and cultivate its tropical woods (nativas).
Why do we plant eucalyptus trees?
Because of its perfect properties for industrial wood. It grows very fast, up to 7 meters per year. The wood is very hard and perfect for furniture or other wooden products. Furthermore, in Paraguay the eucalyptus shows optimal growth potential.
I have heard that eucalyptus contains oils that can cause fires or spoil the ground water. Is this true?
Although absolutely true for some eucalyptus varieties, this family of trees has over 800 different types. The ones growing in Paraguay are used for wood, not for essential oils, because they do not contain enough oil or no oil at all. Therefore fire or spoiled water is highly unlikely.
I thought eucalyptus wasn’t native to Paraguay, so it is impossible to be beneficial for environment and wildlife. Is that true?
Interestingly enough, the oldest known eucalyptus fossils were actually found in South America, although most of the over 800 eucalyptus species originate from Australia and Southeast Asia. Since there is a large variety of eucalyptus and hybrids of it, TREECYCLE works with its own hybrid to ensure the trees growing in Paraguay are harming the environment, but rather strengthen it. Also, the experience of our neighbours in Brazil planting eucalyptus has shown eucalyptus forests growing in unison with native flora and fauna. The mosaic planting of trees offers animals the right environment for living and reproduction.
But is eucalyptus a good choice? It needs an incredible amount of water.
Eucalyptus trees can grow 5-7 meters in one year. This means of course, they need a lot of water to make this kind of growth possible. Therefore such a tree belongs in water-rich countries. If there is an irregular amount of available water – e.g. in dry periods, the tree pulls water from the ground of neighbouring areas and its plants experience water shortage. In Paraguay there is so much water that it washes out the soil. Areas where this happens turns into fallow land and remain this way. The planting of eucalyptus in these areas can help to revitalize the ecosystem.
TREECYCLE helps to make the restoration of the ecosystem possible. 30% of the first investment in 1-hectare land is the price for our biological fertilizer. With sufficient nutrients, eucalyptus trees can also grow on fallow land, because there is a lot of water available as well. After 8 years there is already a layer of humus from fallen eucalyptus leaves and branches.
Which trees does TREECYCLE plant?
Eucalyptus was chosen for cultivation because it has been proven as the best alternative. Due to Paraguay’s subtropical climate eucalyptus trees are growing four times faster than in Europe. The wood of eucalyptus trees can easily keep up with exotic precious woods in quality, appearance, and weather resistance. Its wood is traded worldwide and has proven to be a cheaper alternative with the same properties as other tropical wood. Furthermore, the tall-growing tree acts like a natural protection for native trees; it protects them from strong winds and other conditions.
In general, eucalyptus trees help to prevent deforestation in Latin America, because plantations cover the demand for wood, e.g. wood for energy production as well as the paper industry. There is no natural coal in South America, and the import of huge quantities of crude oil and natural gas is very expensive. Although there are several hydroelectric power plants for general power supply, the demand cannot be met. Therefore 60 % of energy is generated by firewood. It was calculated, that about 60,000 hectares of land will have to be reforested to meet this demand.
However, not only the eucalyptus seedlings are planted, but also native trees that are otherwise being destroyed by deforestation.
What are the advantages of an investment in TREECYCLE?
With TREECYCLE you protect nature on the one hand while you secure money at the same time. We guarantee that your token works ethically, ecologically, and sustainably.
How are TREEs and TreeCoins made?
After the HTO, based on the total investment amount, both TREE and TreeCoin are created by a genesis process on the Ador blockchain. This took place on 09/16/2020. 10Mio TREE and 1Mrd TreeCoin were generated.
What is a hybrid token?
We combine a security token and a payment token. For each security token “TREE” one physical tree is planted in Paraguay. With each TREE the investor receives 50 TreeCoins, which will be available on the market to be used like all other blockchain-based tokens.
How does TREECYCLE work from a technical perspective?
TREECYCLE uses a digital token called TREE, representing our unique “TreeCycle of Life” concept. For every TREE issued, we plant a tree in Paraguay. This tree is nurtured for up to 11 years until it’s harvested at its prime. However, owning a TREE doesn’t just symbolize these initial 11 years. When you own a TREE, it means you get lifelong distributions from all subsequent TreeCycles of the project. A TREE is priced at 21 CHF.
A distinctive feature of our project is the limited availability of TREE. Only 10,000,000 TREE will be issued in total. This scarcity, combined with the continual growth and meticulous care of the trees, may contribute to the increasing value of TREE over time. Owning a TREE doesn’t give you physical ownership of the tree or land. However, it does grant you a share in the profits generated from reforestation in Paraguay. This entitles you to 40% of the project’s profits.
To ensure the transparency and security of TREE, we utilize blockchain technology. This technology provides a clear and traceable record of all TREE transactions, ensuring the integrity and authenticity of each token.
As an added bonus, all TREE holders receive TreeCoins (TXC). It’s worth noting, however, that TREE can only be traded on specialized exchanges approved for such digital tokens.
