Cardano Paving The Way For Blockchain In Agritech

Published

on

Cardano

By the end of 2018, Cardona will most likely be one of the few Blockchain startups in the agritech sector courtesy of a recently signed MOU between Cardano’s parent company (IOHK) and the Ethiopian government.

Reports about the newly signed agreement were first reported on Cointelegraph in a matter of hours right after a tweet from the CEO and founder of Cardona Charles Hoskinson was published:

Just signed an MOU with the Ethiopian Ministry of Science and Technology to explore training blockchain developers and use Cardano in the Agritech Industry

—– Charles Hoskinson

In his tweet, Hoskinson verified the announcement much to the amazement of the Cardano community with some followers even requesting the CEO to work towards developing a similar Blockchain venture with Ethiopia’s neighboring country Kenya.

What the partnership entails

The move to partner with the Ethiopian government will result in the Ethiopian Ministry of science and technology working together with Cardano’s African Operations Department (led by John O’Connor) towards the realization of an agritech platform on Cardano’s Blockchain. If the reports are anything to go by, plans for the platform’s development are set to be complete by the end of the year.

The partnership will also include training of Ethiopian developers on the utility of Blockchain technology, a move that was commended by the Cardano community on Twitter as a move in the right direction not only for Cardano and the Blockchain revolution but also for Ethiopia as a country.

Cardona making big leaps

With Cardano realizing a growth of over 200 percent since its beginning in September last year, the move to partner with Ethiopia comes at the most opportune time considering a recent move by Binance (a leading crypto exchange) to partner with Crypto Savannah (Uganda’s leading Blockchain organization) in order to facilitate East Africa’s economic support and development.

Furthermore, Cardano has established its position in the market with a top ten ranking position since its launch not to mention a market capital around the 9 billion mark according to CoinMarketCap. Apart from the fact that Cardano operates on its own Blockchain (unlike most cryptocurrency startups that are forked from Bitcoin or based on Ethereum’s Blockchain) Cardano also utilizes a proof of stake protocol that proves to be more efficient than a proof of work approach.

Boca Raton, Florida, 27th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

Collaborating with Other Cryptocurrencies, META 1 Tackles Injustice and Human Rights 

META 1 Coin Trust has announced plans to identify, research and document instances of governmental overreach in cryptocurrency cases globally, as part of its ongoing efforts to advance human rights and individual freedom. 

According to Robert P. Dunlap, Executive Trustee of META 1 Coin Trust, “The malicious attacks on crypto projects globally by overzealous government agencies must be documented and publicized to protect the individual liberties of META 1 Coin holders, as well as issuers and holders of other cryptocurrencies.” He added, “The decentralized, non-jurisdictional reality of crypto has left government agencies often unable to fully litigate cases and the general public should not have to continue suffering due to excessive overreach as agencies clamor to save face.”

META 1 Coin Trust is led by Robert P. Dunlap and Nicole Bowdler, who are both committed to pushing back against unimpeded global persecution of cryptocurrencies. By calling attention to years of organized efforts by government agencies to specifically target cryptocurrency projects, their hope is that the public will see and demand an end to these unjust violations of individual liberty. 

Specific grievances which motivated this initiative include grave concerns over government agencies’ obstruction of individuals’ livelihoods, defamation of character, and libelous false accusations which could tarnish the names of individuals for years to come, long after legal actions…

TEL AVIV, Israel, 13th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

MarketAcross, a world leader in blockchain public relations and marketing services, is pleased to announce the launch of Chainwire, an automated press release distribution service which provides guaranteed coverage and in-depth reports. Chainwire will be a one-stop-shop for the distribution of press releases in the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector. The launch marks the first time that advertisers can reach leading publications in the crypto media with the click of a button. 

While most industries have some kind of PR newswire service, the cryptocurrency sector has become a victim of its own rapid pace of growth over recent years. Since the ICO boom of 2017, there has been a proliferation of blockchain and crypto-focused projects, exchanges, investment firms, and marketing agencies, along with niche news and informational content sites. 

However, the infrastructure to connect this complex ecosystem has been slow to come up to speed, meaning that existing newswire services don’t reach their target audience. It’s estimated that one in five people own cryptocurrencies, so there is currently a significant missed opportunity to reach a massive global readership. 

As a newswire service dedicated to the crypto and blockchain space, Chainwire aims to address this gap. Press releases are distributed to leading publications, offering guaranteed coverage to reach audiences worldwide. The system is integrated with publishers and blogs, enabling accurate reporting via a user-friendly dashboard. It also…
