Thank you very much for all these helpful clarifications, and thanks for my first tree planted!

Ezra Jay and Ryan Witten 
thank you for a wonderful submission! This is such an important subject, and you offer a good solution for a gap. Since this project is global and (I'm hoping it will scale up very soon!), I am wondering how will you ensure good quality, and the right kind of follow up. There is often one issue regarding planting that is sometimes less talked about: Maintenance. I have seen some individuals or associations boast about the planting of so many trees (in hundreds and thousands!) and do less when it comes to actual work of maintenance and looking after some trees. How do you plan to address that? How can the program also offer incentives on that? What if those people want to plant trees but aren't sure about the type of trees that are best for this land? Will there be some kind of exchange platform about planting?I am also eager to know a bit more about the digital currency system. Practically, can you walk us through a journey of a user of your app/ digital platform? After they upload the picture of the tree they planted and geotagged it, what happens?I hope these questions resonate and help inspire! Would love to follow up with you guys if you need some help on Design Research or UX/UI!
