ATF equipment is a unique device designed for the automated cultivation of various types of plants, fruits, vegetables, herbs and cannabis. Unlike other types of manufacturers, the ATF does not require professional agronomical skills or specific knowledge in the field of crop production.
All processes associated with photosynthesis are pre-programmed for each type of culture at all stages of growth and are fully automated. Users can easily monitor and notice the growth cycle with their smartphone, computer or tablet, which makes the cultivation almost like a game. Equipment for the purpose is divided into domestic and industrial series.
The ATF technology combines hydroponics (water), aeroponics (wind), heating and controlled light (sun) to imitate the perfect climatic conditions for the growth of a certain plant variety, such as tomatoes, cucumbers, rucola, strawberries, cannabis, and more.
There are only two resources required to have fresh, organic food all year round with ATF: water and electricity. By leveraging the combination of technologies, ATF achieves a 30% quicker growth without the use of chemicals or other unhealthy practices. The process is fully automated: you simply add seeds (like you fill coffee beans in a coffee machine), nutrient solutions (similarly to adding laundry liquid in a washing machine), and get the crops in when the time comes. The technology is designed for private, commercial, and industrial use. By introducing blockchain, we as a manufacturer will guarantee end consumers the organic origin of produce sold by retailers equipped with ATF.
Food for tokens
The ultimate goal with ATF is to make organic, chemical-free produce available across the globe, thanks to our disruptive agricultural technology, intelligent software, and blockchain. By working towards this goal, we aim to gradually deliver on the so called FOOD FOR TOKENS concept. Alongside making blockchain part of the technology to guarantee that the produce cultivated with ATF is completely chemical-free in 2020, we plan to gently introduce new utility tokens based on a private blockchain with a much higher transaction throughput. Two examples of utility token circulation:
- Direct communication between AgroTechFarm company and end consumer, an ATF Basic owner. As a manufacturer, we will provide a range of services, such as maintenance, support, advisory, and supply of fertilizers and accessories. The ATF owner will have two options to pay for these services: either in fiat currencies, such as dollar, euro and others, or in ATF utility tokens. If the latter option is chosen, the customer will get up to a 50% discount on the price calculated with the exchange rate at the date of purchase.
- A supply chain including AgroTechFarm company, an agricultural company, a retailer, and an end consumer. Knowing that they will get a sizeable discount in maintenance cost, the wholesale agricultural company equipped with ATF devices will be motivated to offer the retailer with a sizeable discount if the payment is provided in ATF tokens. The end consumer will still buy from the retailer with a fiat currency, until the time when payment in cryptocurrencies is widely adopted by retail.
These are only two ATF utility token circulation examples out of many. In addition to the ATF devices, we will be further developing ATF-i apps to build and improve the marketplace within them. This is projected to become a base for self-regulating, decentralized market of organic, chemical-free produce, knowledge, and services.
