Create an empty Batch NFT on Polygon, which will represent a tokenized batch of carbon offsets retired in the source registry.
”Attention: Verra Registry currently does not support the tokenization of carbon credits and this will not be available on the Toucan UI. Verra Registry is currently identifying the safest way forward regarding carbon credit tokenization. Read our official response to the Verra announcement.”
You will need a batch NFT for each project and vintage of carbon offsets you want to retire in the source registry. This might mean you need to initialize multiple batches, and provide multiple Toucan IDs in the Retirement Details of different batch retirements.
- 1.Click on "New Retirement".
- 2.Select which registry you're bridging from — at launch, only Verra is supported.
- 3.Select whether you have access to the registry, or if a partner will be retiring the offsets on your behalf.
- 5.Within a few seconds, the transaction should be validated. A new page will load with detailed instructions on the next step.
It is very important that you read these instructions carefully! They explain how to retire the batch of offsets you want to bridge in the Verra registry.
The interface will include a few pieces of information that you MUST carefully and correctly copy and include when you or your partner retires the batch on Verra.
Mistakes here will result in an irrevocable loss of funds!
