Blockchain for the Greater Good.

Using Distributed Cryptoledger And Mobile Apps To Create A Circle Of Trust For Small Farmer Co-Operatives.

THE PROBLEM

The UN reports that up to 50% of crop value vanishes between harvest and the point of sale.

Small co-operatives are currently by far the best way to improve efficiency in developing countries and help farmers retain a bigger share of their crop value. Co-ops presently rely on paper-based records, verbal promises, and complicated agreements; this frequently causes critical problems due to lack of transparency, restricted access to price data, lying, graft, and corruption.

AgriLedger is a Mobile App that records and transacts incorruptible truth using blockchain technology. It is a complete framework of integrated services for delivering an even playing field to farmers and co-ops. This solid framework of trust allows everyone to know they are working, buying, selling, and sharing things according to a cryptographic “Book of Truth” that is utterly incorruptible.

THE IDEA

AgriLedger streamlines co-operative operations by putting a simple Distributed Cryptoledger Mobile App into the hand of every small farmer.

BLOCKCHAIN

All transactions are permanently recorded on an incorruptible Blockchain ledger.

NETWORK

Build the world's largest network of small farmers and cooperatives.

FRAMEWORK OF TRUST

Creating the framework of trust with integrated services for farmers and co-ops.

CHEAP SMARTPHONES

Providing SmartPhones enabling small farmers to sell harvests and buy supplies efficiently

FOOD SECURITY

Using simple technology, we can make small improvements that will have a life changing impact for billions of people.

One-third of the world’s available food either spoils or gets thrown away before it ever reaches a plate—that’s enough to feed everyone in the world for two months. And with 1.2 billion people food insecure or undernourished, millions of vulnerable smallholder farmers losing profits they can’t spare, and a population  expected to increase by 2 billion by 2050, we cannot afford to allow these losses to continue. – Rockefeller Foundation

On 470 million smallholder farms across Africa, lack of access to training and technology negatively impacts harvests and farmers livelihoods.

When crops and food exports don’t make it to market, the economic development and global competitiveness of agriculture-dependent nations suffer as well.

50% food produced in Africa is wasted.

According to the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nation (FAO), the amount of food wasted on the continent is enough to feed 300 million people. The statistics of food production compared to hunger suggest that Africa actually produces more than enough to feed itself.

THE CO-OPERATIVE

The cooperative model offers unique solutions to “free people from hunger and poverty in a globalized world in which crises, including climate change, touch everyone”.

Laura Chinchilla, Former President of Costa Rica

Farmers join together in co-ops to overcome the challenges but are still facing the lack of:

  • Trust

    Lack of trust between co-op staff and farmers.

  • Efficiency

    Paper-based systems are labor intensive, error prone and difficult for locals to understand.

  • Audit

    No audit trail enables corruption and graft.

  • Transparency

    Both farmers and Co-ops lack access to transaction records, market and price information.
