Hi to all,
I´m writing this proposal in english as it references to an international London based project Provenance
They describe themself as social enterprise which want to start a digital revolution for transparent supply chains. (German "Lieferketten).
Their goal is to create a worlwide decentraliced database for tracking products from raw materials through the different productions steps till the shop for the final customer. It may also covers the reccycling of the product.
The technology concept behind Provenance has the goal both to integrate traditional certifications for e.g. organic and fairtrade products as a bottom up possibilties, for small business to make their supply chain transparent without the big certification players.
See e.g an example for project based in Taiwan, Portugal and UK to produce boardshorts (German Badehosen) from fabric made of reccycled plastic bottles:
A midterm goal could be, that fairmondo offers to members, which are also sellers on the fairmondo platform, the Provenance tools directly integrated into the fairmondo market.
A short time goal would be, that fairmondo creates an Provenance Pro Account This would cost 29 UK Pounds a month. The Account could be closed monthly.
It allows to invite collaboraters to create product stories like the reccycled boardtrousers.
I would sponsor a Provenance Pro Account for 6 months, if at least 3 sellers at fairmondo, which are also fairmondo members say: this is something cool I want to try.
In this case, the product story would be created with online tools from Provenance and than integrated in the fairmondo product description as a normal Link. No need for fairmondo to change anything in the marketplace.
Technical Background for programmers:
Provenance uses the Ethereum Blockchain as Backend for their decentralized database.
fairmondo member and regular fairmondo shopper
PS: Please answer in english, that also people outside from germany incl. the Provenance team can give feedback.
