Digital Blockchain Platform and its contribution on Modern Agriculture

digital blockchain platform
Three companies partnered to help farmers achieve a resilient agriculture system through a digital blockchain platform.

To increase and improve the performance of the agriculture sector, the Nigeria-based companies AFEX Commodities Exchange Limited, Binkabi, and Sterling Bank developed a digital blockchain platform.

Furthermore, the said digital platform would serve as a trading and financing platform between farmers and consumers. It, also, offers a lot of advantages:

  • Give smallholder farmers access to the market without the inclusion of middlemen.
  • Transparency of transactions in the supply chain.
  • Also, it allows farmers to get a fair price of their products and, therefore, increase their income.
  • Provide alternative financial structures for farmers.
  • Help farmers achieve a resilient agriculture system by getting instant data about climate change and long-term solution to food security.
