George Connolly: Hello Ledgerians - Welcome to the AMA with TraceX

George Connolly: TraceX team - please introduce yourself to the community!

Brighu Bhattrahalli:  Hello George and members in the group. Very excited to be here! My name is Brighu, Head of International Business at TraceX Technologies. I lead our efforts at TraceX to expand globally. We are a Food and Agri Supply chain Traceability platform that uses a private permissioned Blockchain to help Agri businesses achieve their Sustainability and Carbon accounting goal.  We are a B2B Enterprise solutions platform.

Manu Bharadwaj: Hi Everyone, This is Manu Bharadwaj, Vice President - Growth and Strategy at TraceX! Excited to be here 🙂

George Connolly: Thank you both for taking the time to be with us today. Strategic partnerships are vital to the success of the blockchain and crypto industries - this is one such opportunity. What are the goals of TraceX and why use blockchain to achieve them?

Brighu Bhattrahalli: TraceX technologies came into existence when we recognized that most supply chains are extremely complex and that there is no trust and transparency between the stakeholders. This is more true in the Food and Agri industry.

George Connolly: How do you then apply blockchain to the agricultural industry?

Brighu Bhattrahalli: Blockchain technology was chosen primarily because we felt that the success of any program is when we can create a connected network of all stakeholders in any value chain.

Manu Bharadwaj: We work with the Agri and Food Supply chains and bring different stakeholders of the supply chain on one blockchain network to seamlessly exchange information from farm to fork ensuring a single source of truth. The idea is to build a connected and trusted food supply chain.

George Connolly: Would you care to expand on that?

Manu Bharadwaj: We help businesses in the following ways:

  • Reduce food wastage
  • Avoid Product recalls
  • Improve trust and transparency for the end consumers
  • Help in scope 3 carbon accounting
  • Measure sustainable outcomes

George Connolly: This is exactly what the world requires - especially now!!!! What is your plan to leverage OneLedger’s blockchain technology?

Brighu Bhattrahalli: We will need to split this into two phases, the initial challenge is to get validated data coming from multiple sources and the TraceX platform looks at granular information to baseline. We can then use this data to engage the Oneledger BC platform to bring in more entities and spread the net wide.

George Connolly: Fantastic. What are the measurable outcomes of the TraceX platform?

Manu Bharadwaj: Basically we want to be the one-stop solution for the company's net-zero goals:
1. Measure: Get the scope 3 emission data 
2. Reduce: Measure the impact of the abatement initiatives like Regen Ag, AWD and Agroforestry
3. Offset: DMRV platform to provide credibility to the carbon credits

We integrate with the GIS and IOT data for the monitoring and verification of the data

George Connolly: Thank you - now to questions from the Community.
