Powering Agriculture with Blockchain

About the Project

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

Plaas Payment System

Plaas payment gateway for online transactions that happen between buyers and sellers on the marketplace.

PLS token

Plaas PLS token is based on the Ethereum blockchain technology. it is the utility token in the new Plaas Marketplace and The PPS (Plaas Payment System).

RFID Technology

PLAAS combines RFID with blockchain technology to provide an animal tracking system. The RFID chips hold information that can be read using an RFID reader. The information on the chips will include the owner of the animal and the genetic information of the animal

Online Marketplace

The platform will provide an online marketplace for buyers and sellers on the market who can use the native PLAAS coin to remit payments

IOT(Internet of Things)

Daat’s Blockchain‐compatible Contactless Microchip extends this revolubionary solution to the physical world.Any object can now be authenticated with certitude thanks to the strongest blockchain cryptographic algorithms, while being natively compatible with the upcoming surge of game‐changing blockchain services

PLAAS combines RFID with blockchain technology to provide an animal tracking system. This is how it works, every animal recorded in the platform will have a chip inserted in it, this chip contains information such as cows date of birth breed and heredity details, health history, vaccination, supplements, owner, among others including geo-location information.

There will be an ethereum address where all the information contained in the rfid chip is logged. (ethereum address of the chip will contain information recorded in the chip)Automation

RFID reader will be able to scan the address in the chip to retrieve all information recorded in the chip about the particular animal.

Private key will be used to sign the ethereum address and signals the PLAAS smart contract to reduct the ethereum address.

What this basically does is confirm this information as true so we can then save the transaction hash and ethereum address on IPFS database.

Farmers and individuals who will want to trade any animal in market can check the ethereum address in the database to view info about the particular animal whether if the information is true by being signed with a private key.

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 This done to confirm if the information about that particular cow is true and then can save the transaction hash and ethereum address on the database
