Element United’s mission is to utilize the monetary value of precious metals in a way that benefits individuals, the planet, and vulnerable communities around the world. Our mission is accomplished in the following ways:
- Partnering with mine owners around the world to stop in-ground mining, especially in high-impact areas with vulnerable local communities.
- Using unique NFT and Smart Node technology to digitize a mine’s precious metals, and leveraging their value for exchange on the blockchain.
- Creating a digital marketplace for community members to join our mission by purchasing NFTs based on our assayed in-ground assets, or by running Element Nodes on their computers. Both these actions generate digital rewards that can be exchanged or held in a digital vault.
- When mining is absolutely necessary, creating the Element Certification Process, which helps land owners implement safe and sustainable mining practices in order to continue mining responsibly.
- Funding philanthropic reclamation projects in communities damaged by prior mining activity.
