There is an initiative (soon DAO) by my friends combining the core values of Ethereum, I want to request your expertise, insights and feedback as we are doing this for the first time.
Wild Sherpas is a sustainable tourism business that provides camping experiences in the midst of lush green forests and is surrounded by prominent mountains. The main mission is to promote eco-tourism and educate guests about the fragility of receding Biodiversity and conservation. While providing a unique and memorable experience for the guests. We understand the Ethos, Values & Philosophy of this space & we are taking our first step with a humble beginning. We have seen numerous experiments and then there are Hype-based extraction funnels with no legit value added to the ecosystem. Our project aims to be in alignment with the Values that CypherPunks upheld and fought for. We are thinking of this project as an intersection of Nature, Culture, Art and Crypto in a meaningful way. The basic idea is to launch a yield-generating NFT project that will be the Universal Membership pass, we are combining DeFi elements with Art, Nature & the most important “Social Layer”
NFT Mechanism (Initial draft TLDR)
Two Tiers of NFTs

• Other Partners’ utilities & perks
- Tier 2 (~500-700$)
Holders will have
• % of Royalties from tier 1 NFT trades • % of Royalties from Tier 2 NFT trades
• 10 Trees to be planted per NFT mint
