PLAAS is seeking to leverage blockchain technology by providing all the players in the African agricultural sector with a platform where they can store and share information about crops and animals securely. The platform works by using blockchain technology to store sensitive agricultural data like the breed and ancestry of animals to help buyers identify the traits of the animals that they are buying.
Additionally, the platform also provides information on plants and animals to keep track of the food security in the country remotely. This is done by leveraging RFID information and combining it with blockchain technology to ensure all the animals in the platform can be tracked, and their genetic information is available to users.
We will be chipping animals recorded in the platform using the Radio Frequency Identification (tech) so the details contained in the RFID will for example be cows date of birth breed and heredity details healthy history and also geolocation information When a cow is at the slaughter house the machines can scan the chip which is basically an ethereum address and can review all the data there… The slaughter house will have a private key that signs the ethereum address and signals on the Plaas smart contract to reduct the ethereum address.
