We now have the ability to lock the rate once before the coins are distributed to the contributors. To lock the rate, log into your account on foodcoin.io and click on the [Lock the current rate button]. The system will automatically pick a more favorable rate between the original rate on the date of the purchase and the rate on the date of a lock. Please remember that you can only lock the rate once.

For this purpose, parties to a transaction exchange DIGID username public keys (tokens). In order to get a full DIGID, the user will have to obtain a confirmation of its profile from a third-party platform user.

Additional parties of the transaction can be invited by the administrators of on their own initiative or on the basis of consensus, and become either parties or verifiers of the current smart contract. An open library of standard Smaco contracts will be created with an intuitive interface for connecting additional options. Creating and maintaining Smaco contracts will not require programming skills. Working with Smaco will be usable for everyone.
What is PRORID?
PRORID is a products and goods origin authentication system. Actually, PRORID will be a type of Ethereum-based smart contract.

If a smart contract includes a PRORID feature, the logistics company will be obliged to accept the goods only after confirmation from the experts on the current smart contract based on the consensus between the parties of the contract. PRORID integration with the electronic databases of public fiscal, customs and supervisory authorities will significantly limit the circulation of illegal, counterfeit and other illicit trafficking products and goods, thus making a significant contribution to the fight against economic crimes.
How many farmers does 1000 EcoFarms have now?
How many users does 1000 EcoFarms have now?
Where can I find the white paper? What will be happening to the original 1000ecofarms.com while you are starting FoodCoin?
FoodCoin and 1000EcoFarms are two separete businesses. 1000EcoFarms is early adopter for FoodCoin Ecosystem.
Our goal is to create a blockchain ecosystem for food and agriculture businesses based on existing platforms like 1000 EcoFarms. Farmers, manufacturers, processors, and restaurants will be the users of FoodCoin ecosystem all around the world. 1000EcoFarms is already operating marketplace. FoodCoin will expand the capabilities of 1000EcoFarms platform and make it suitable for different scale agricultural and food businesses (both local and international)
Can I buy products in your shop for these tokens?
1000EcoFarms is not a shop. It's a marketplace. And yes, you will be able to buy products from our partner-farmers who will accept FoodCoins.
Is FoodCoin mineable?
Not right now. Later, when we will create our own blockchain, it will be mineable.
Is FoodCoin also implementing food provenance in the food chain?
Not yet. It will be one of the tools of our FoodCoin Ecosystem in future.
Which large businesses have you approached, and which have expressed interest in working with you? When will you have your first sizeable and real partnership?
We will begin to make strategic partnership agreements as early as next year. A full-fledged cooperation will be possible as soon as our system will be launched and tested.
Do you have any prototype for you blockchain?
We will create an Ethereum-based blockchain. We will start working on it after the 1st stage of TGE, and the code will be available on GitHub.
You are combining 2 very novel factors here: your business model, i.e. 1000 EсoFarms platform, is a novelty, and on top of it you throw another novelty which is the whole crypto currency experience. Now, this will be a double whammy for both your farmers and users - neither one of these concepts has gained enough traction yet nor anything close to early majority let alone mass adoption. When, which year, do you think your business model will actually gain enough traction to be really sizeable (if it survives), and how will you minimize the risks along the way and maintain your possible first entry advantage? Also, which are the main competitors to 1000 EсoFarms, and which geographical regions will you target this year and next?
1000Ecofarms is separate and an already operating platform. To date, we are focusing on the US and EU markets. But after the TGE we are planning to develop the European market. 20% of the funds raised on the TGE will be sent to involving a new users like the 1000Ecofarms platform. Up to 10% of all tokens will be sent to social projects. Using funds in these ways, we expect to get support from different sides, and it will increase the popularity of both our projects.
