Decentralised fresh food marketplace eHarvestHub has announced a ‘bounty’ campaign. Ahead of its pre-ICO later this month, it aims to attract a range of participants, from programmers to bloggers, to partake in the programme, with 1% of all tokens being issued in the sale and a value of up to $150,000 being allocated to those involved.
“We’re thrilled to be growing closer to achieving the vision that eHarvestHub has set out to realise,” says Alvaro Ramirez, Founder and CEO of the project. “The network revolves around its users, so it’s great to be able to work with them in the early stages to help us spread the word and fine tune it.”
eHarvestHub enables independent farmers to sell directly to grocers around the globe, removing middlemen that, the venture claims, “drive up the price of produce whilst siphoning the majority of the profits from the industry. Our goal is to bring affordability and accessibility to all. It banishes the need for trust in such parties with the use of a public ledger, so that drivers transporting the produce, farmers harvesting it and grocers purchasing it can connect directly and greatly streamline the process.”
eHarvestHub has raised $1.2 million in a round led by Tim Draper’s VenturesLab Fund and Kaiwu Capital. It has launched its Proof of Concept for a marketplace and inventory management system, as well as eHarvestHaul, its platform for truckers. The venture’s pre-ICO is scheduled for 23rd May, announced on its site. Various discounts are available for early investors.
