Please read these General Terms of Service (“Terms”) carefully as they are a legally binding agreement between you and Single.Earth OÜ.
References in these Terms to "Single.Earth", "we", "our" or "us", are to Single.Earth OÜ and references to “user”, “you” or “your” are to the person who signs up to use the Single.Earth services.
The services under these Terms are provided by Single.Earth OÜ, a company established and existing under the laws of the Republic of Estonia with the registry code 14873080 and registered address at Telliskivi 60/2, Tallinn 10412, Estonia. Single.Earth operates under the virtual asset service provider licence issued by the Estonian Financial Intelligence Unit (licence no. FVT000524).
Our overall goal is to build a system of technical, scientific and financial means which would facilitate conservation of the natural environment to maintain and improve the provision of ecosystem services (namely carbon sequestration in biomass) and ecosystem integrity (function, structure and composition of ecosystems, i.e., biodiversity) globally. For further information, please see more information available on the Website.
Our services should be used only by persons that share this overall goal and who want to contribute to, and participate in, building that system in good faith.
Our agreement with you
These Terms set out the main terms and conditions of Single.Earth services and form the basis of our business relationship. In addition to the Terms, we have regulated and will regulate some aspects of our services in separate terms and conditions which apply to all or to specific categories of Users (Special Terms). At the date of the current version of the Terms, the following Special Terms exist:
a) Landowner Terms - applying to Landowners
If you do not agree to the Terms or to the Special Terms or it would be unlawful for you to use the services of Single.Earth, you should not provide your consent and you are not entitled to use our services.
In the Agreement, we refer to the Science Whitepaper in the Terms and we may publish other similar papers in the future that describe the concepts and policies we apply in providing our service (“Concept Papers”). We disclose them for information purposes only and they are not directly part of the Agreement.
All these documents mentioned in this section are accessible and can be downloaded from our Website (when published). We suggest that you download a copy of these documents or request us to send you a copy through email.
Risks related to virtual assets and our servicesIf you see MERIT tokens as an investment opportunity, please note that the value of MERITs can go up or down and do not invest unless you are prepared to lose all your money invested. MERIT token would be a high-risk investment. Similarly, although we work towards solutions for creating meaningful value for supporting the conservation of natural environments, there is no guarantee that a market or other use cases develop for transactions in MERIT tokens or that the value of MERIT tokens will reach or maintain a certain level. Virtual assets are not currently regulated in Estonia. Our operations are not supervised by any financial sector supervisory authority and we are not covered by any financial compensation scheme.
Before using our services and making transactions in MERIT tokens or in any other virtual asset, please make sure you understand how our Platform works and what are the related risks.
Limits on access and servicesAlthough our overall goal is to achieve global reach with the complete concept and service, we need to start small and grow gradually. This means that we will first focus on certain geographies, certain user groups, certain types of natural environments, certain functionalities, etc.
Also, our services, incl. the services related to wallets and MERITs, are made accessible and provided in the Republic of Estonia and our operations are managed and carried out in Estonia. We do not operate our business in any other country. Our activities are subject to different regulatory requirements and restrictions (e.g., laws on anti-money laundering, regulations on virtual assets and related services) and such regulations differ across countries. Also, there may be limitations by our cooperation partners and service providers, which we will need to follow (e.g. limitations on countries to and from which we can make or accept payments).
This all means that we will not provide services to all persons and there are limitations on the services, functionalities, volumes, etc. We will inform you of such restrictions when you access or use our Platform.

4. Assessment of Ecosystem Services
4.1. Before MERITs can be minted and any services in relation to MERITs are provided, the following steps need to happen:
a) Landowner must register their land plot(s) through the Land Management application; and
b) Single.Earth has initiated the Assessment regarding registered land plots.
4.2. Landowners are requested to go through the land registration process with each land plot they wish to sign up for the Assessment, and consequently, for receiving MERITs.
4.3. Each Landowner will need to separately agree to the Landowner Terms.
4.4. For the purposes of ensuring the quality and correctness of the Assessment and also, in order to collectively contribute to the conserving of natural environment, the Landowner Terms set out certain expectations and obligations on the Landowners (e.g. prohibition of clearcutting or environmental crime, informing Single.Earth of any adverse changes on the land plot or of plans for such change).
4.5. After a land plot is registered, we initiate the Assessment process in accordance with the Science Whitepaper. The Assessment is a continuous process.
The Assessment will be performed through the implementation of our models (incl. the Digital Twin) based on the information provided by Landowners and the data retrieved from external sources.
4.6. The Assessment regarding a land plot is carried out solely for the purpose of minting MERITs and for their intended use in accordance with our Agreement.
In order to avoid any confusion and misunderstandings, it is very important that you, especially as a Buyer, clearly understand what our Assessment is about and what a MERIT token represents.
Single.Earth enables Buyers to financially incentivise landowners to preserve and improve the provision of ecosystem services on their lands. MERITs are not to be used for offsetting greenhouse gas emissions elsewhere and should not be advertised or promoted as such. Please reach out to us for any support you may need.
4.7. The result of our Assessment is minted in the form a MERIT token and firstly credited to the Token Wallet of a Landowner whose land has provided the nominal value of the assessed ecosystem services.
The minting and the relationship with the Assessment is described in the Science Whitepaper.
4.8. MERITs will only be minted based on the Assessment. However, no MERIT is directly linked to a specific land plot after being minted.
MERIT tokens are fungible instruments, i.e. interchangeable among themselves.
4.9. MERITs and Token Wallets are operated on the public blockchain network Solana which is an open-source software project. We do not own or control any blockchain protocols and software, and assume no responsibility for the operation of the underlying protocols. There is no guarantee regarding the functionality, security, legality, or availability of the underlying protocols.
Should there be any changes to the blockchain protocols we use or if we reasonably deem necessary for other technical reasons, we have the right to amend, suspend or terminate the affected services, incl. the right to re-configure, re-deploy or replace the technical solution or parameters forming or underlying MERIT token or the Token Wallet (without materially affecting the value and content of these to the extent under our control).
4.10. The minting of MERIT tokens and crediting them to Token Wallets cannot be construed as our offer of virtual currencies (e.g. coins or tokens) to our Users or to the general public. In our dealings with MERITs, we do not raise capital for ourselves and do not receive otherwise proceeds from that process, except for fees that we may charge in accordance with these Terms.
5. The Platform and Services
5.1. Single.Earth is building an infrastructure and a combination of related services to enable (a) the Landowners to benefit from the ecosystem services their land provides and (b) the Buyers to contribute to the continuing provision of such services, and looking forward, (c) all the Users to use the value of the ecosystem services in their daily financial dealings.
Single.Earth operates this infrastructure through the Platform and in that connection provides Users the following services:
a) opening, maintaining and servicing a Token Wallet for each User;
b) crediting MERITs to the Token Wallets of Landowners (as the initial step after minting them);
c) holding MERITs for the benefit of a User in their respective Token Wallet.
We work towards making that list longer.
5.2. Single.Earth Platform does not support anonymous accounts or transactions, the identity of each User is verified and known to us.
Each User has the option to disclose their identity on the Platform so that there can be transparency among the Users. Information about the Token Wallets and transaction information will be available in the public Solana blockchain network (without your personal information).
Also, we have the right, and often also an obligation under the applicable law, to disclose the information about Users, Token Wallets and transactions in MERITs to government authorities, involved payment service providers, other virtual asset service providers or to other third parties.
The Token Wallet
5.3. Each Landowner will automatically be opened a Token Wallet from the moment their first land is registered on the Platform and the Assessment is initiated. Each Buyer will be opened an individual Token Wallet from the moment they first transfer money to Single.Earth to buy MERITs.
5.4. Token Wallet is opened as a custodial wallet in Single.Earth name which means that Single.Earth controls all the access keys related to the wallet.
In the initial mode, all Token Wallets are opened and maintained only for the purposes of keeping accounts and records of Users and the MERITs they are entitled to, either as a result of initial crediting or through transfers, if any. This means that you will initially have no control over, and cannot give any instructions regarding, the Token Wallet or the MERITs.
Depending on our development progress we will determine if, when and how we will grant you control over the Token Wallet and MERITs credited to the Token Wallet.
5.5. Token Wallet is accessible only through the Platform (in view mode initially).
5.6. Only MERITs, and in case of Landowners, also Land NFTs (when introduced), can be credited to, held and transacted in Token Wallets (i.e. no other virtual assets are accepted to the Token Wallet).
The Money Wallet
5.7. [the Money Wallet service is currently not available, coming soon]
5.8. Limitations may apply for withdrawing funds from the Money Wallet in case we have not been able to verify the identity of the User in accordance with the regulatory requirements or if geographical, currency, or amount based limitations are set by the payment service providers we use.
Burning MERIT tokens
5.9. [a Buyer will be able to burn the MERITs, coming soon]
Transactions in MERIT tokens
5.10. At the date of these Terms, and unless otherwise agreed separately, no transactions in MERITs are supported or facilitated on the Marketplace among the Users.
5.11. We will inform Users of the possibility to do transactions in MERITs through the Platform.
5.12. There is no assurance that an efficient and liquid market will develop for MERITs. There is also no assurance regarding the value of a MERIT or regarding the proceeds for a Landowner may receive through the Platform.
[This section is intentionally left blank as we will not charge any fees from our clients at the initial stage. Fees will be introduced at later stage and we will inform you of that in advance]
7. Changes to The Platform; Amendments to the Terms
Our Platform and services will change
7.1. Single.Earth is a start-up company and we continuously develop and enhance the Platform. For example, we are constantly developing our scientific models underlying the Assessment, the technical and operational solutions for MERITs and the Wallets, and working on our product offering. It will be a gradual progress and it will take time.
