Innovations with Ed Begley Jr. to Explore Blockchain-Based Technology for the Food and Agriculture Industries

Exploring breakthroughs in blockchain technology for agriculture and food-related businesses.

JUPITER, Fla., April 17, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Today, small and medium sized producers and processors of agricultural products are being pushed out as a result of the hold that major food brands and agricultural corporations have on the industry. This segment of Innovations will explore the FoodCoin Ecosystem, a blockchain ecosystem that has been architecturally designed to create a global marketplace of food and agricultural products on the existing platform of 1000EcoFarms with the opportunity to add other platforms. FoodCoin Ecosystem will create a new blockchain-based on Ethereum technology as a universal trading platform for businesses dealing with food broadly defined.

FOODCOIN ECOSYSTEM transactions will accept a proper cryptocurrency named FoodCoin (FOOD) and its smart contracts will cut out the intermediaries, dramatically reducing the costs of transactions and prices for final customers, while FOODCOIN Product identification system will become a strong defensive mechanism for brand name products.

Viewers will learn how FoodCoin Ecosystem plans to support food and agriculture startups with the verified model, innovation content, and the significant growth potential using the platform of 1000EcoFarms and FoodCoin blockchain. The show will also educate about how FoodCoin Ecosystem will unite economic agents (sellers, distributors, buyers, banks, insurance, logistics companies, tax services, etc.) into a single blockchain platform and introduce the real use cases of FoodCoin Ecosystem early adopters (5 companies in the US and Europe).

"FoodCoin already has strategic partnership agreements with several companies and projects throughout the U.S., and as of this March, has also made partnerships with European producers," said Gregory Arzumanian, Founder & CEO of FOODCOIN. "We are excited to be a part of the Innovations series where we can spread the word about what is taking place in the industry, and how FOODCOIN is making an impact."

"FoodCoin Ecosystem plans to collaborate with government and non-government organizations in the integration of blockchain technologies to solve actual global problems, such as famine relief, disaster relief, climate fluctuation, support of small farmers, uncontrolled global migration of agricultural populations, and more," said Jennifer Tierney, senior producer for the series.

For better or worse, DevOps has gone mainstream. All doubt was removed when IBM and HP threw up their respective DevOps microsites. Where are we on the hype cycle? It's hard to say for sure but there's a feeling we're heading for the "Peak of Inflated Expectations." What does this mean for the enterprise? Should they avoid DevOps? Definitely not. Should they be cautious though? Absolutely. The truth is that DevOps and the enterprise are at best strange bedfellows. The movement has its roots in t...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.
