TL;DR:Decentralizing farms and grocery stores.
Hey everyone! I had an idea bouncing around for a while and I’d like to share it with you. I actually thought of this before I found OpenAG, but I think that this is the perfect tech to do it with.
Basically, my idea is to have a system where individual households are incentivized to grow their own food and sell/share it with their community. I think that this could be really powerful in stopping the food desert issue and could also solve some of the environmental issues related to large farms.
People would have a food computer (they could actually grow however they want, but this would be the best way) and an app. The app would tell them the demand of various produce items and people would grow what needed to be grown. The app would also include a marketplace that would allow people to buy and sell produce.
I’m biased because I work in blockchain, but I think that tokenizing this would be really interesting. We could solve the chicken/egg problem by rewarding early users that sell on the platform. We could also cut transaction fees of the marketplace.
What are your thoughts on this? Would love to discuss!
