Fishcoin

Fishcoin is a blockchain based data ecosystem designed by Eachmile Technologies for the global seafood industry. Fishcoin enables incentives for data sharing by stakeholders across seafood supply chains. 

 

1 out of every 10 people on earth derive their incomes from seafood, and the industry’s import value alone is more than $150 billion. Currently 89% of global fish stocks are at capacity or in decline, yet as much as 50% of the seafood we harvest is thrown away, and more than 700 KG per second are stolen through illegal, unreported and unregulated activity. The industry needs more data to increase efficiency, yet in fragmented seafood supply chains incentive structures for data sharing are misaligned and trust is abysmal. Fishcoin combines the mechanism for data sharing, using blockchain, with a scalable incentive (pre-paid mobile top-ups), that is meaningful to the millions of fishers and fish farmers around the globe from the large seafood producing nations like Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and many more. 

 

We are proud to be partnering with some of the world’s largest seafood companies, as well as collaborations with the United Nations World Food Programme, Cambridge University’s Banking Environment Initiative, multiple technology and sensor providers, and multiple NGOs that span the industry.  We are also managing the 5th annual Fishackathon, one of the largest environmental hackathons in the world, to bring together a developer community from around the world that are eager to use innovation to safeguard our oceans. You can read more about these and other partnerships and initiatives on the Fishcoin website or Medium.
