In our next meetup, the founders of Foodblockchain.xyz – Angel Versetti and Stefan Meyer – will present their vision of the next generation food supply chain.
They describe foodblockchain.xyz as follows:
FoodBlockchain.XYZ is the world’s first blockchain ecosystem created for the food vertical. Our solution includes sensor systems to assure quality, safety and origins of food; a platform to create, edit and enter into commercial agreements with quality prerequisites, a decentralised exchange platform for agricultural commodities and food with guaranteed quality insights, a consumer-oriented app to verify the story of individual products, and a peer-to-peer marketplace where farmers can directly sell their products to the buyers and cut out the middleman. Our ecosystem and protocol is powered by FoodCoin, an ERC20 token.
