NFTs、暗号債、チョコレート

いかにして新しい技術が、よりおいしいチョコレートを作るのに役立つのか

カカオはチョコレート作りにとって重要であるにもかかわらず、カカオ農業はここ百年、あまり変化していません。さらに私たちの多くは、気候変動や乾燥・温暖化がカカオ栽培にもたらす課題について認識しています。

一方で、ベネズエラで見られる祖先カカオの絶滅の危機に瀕した亜種については、ほとんど知られていません。パタネモで育つカカオは、その絶滅の危機に瀕した亜種のひとつです。私たちは、ブログや講演で定期的にこの話題を取り上げています。ベネズエラの先祖代々紡いできたカカオを保存することは、世界にとっても、チョコレート愛好家にとっても、本当に厳しい課題です。2050年には、カカオは消滅するか、遺伝子組み換え作物に取った変わられる可能性があると言われています。そして遺伝子組み換え作物から作られたカカオは、どれも同じ味になってしまいます。

カカオシェアの活動が、ベネズエラに受け継がれてきた品種を、その気候に適した場所に普及させるためのムーブメントになることを私たちは夢見ています。純粋で本物のチョコレート、多様で自然なチョコレートを、その本来の環境の中で維持すること。

極めてシンプルな考え:熱帯雨林の中で育つ木をもっともっと増やす

私たちの活動「カカオシェア」は、カカオの保護とより良いチョコレートについての認識を高めることを目的としています。このため、私たちは世界初のカカオベースの仮想通過、「ERC20(イーサリアムネットワーク)Cacaoshares」を作り、さらに最近では、Bean to Barチョコレートに、魂を込めたブロックチェーン保存デジタルアート作品であるNFTs(非腐敗トークン)の監修(または鋳造)を開始しました。

デジタルアート、Bean to Barチョコレート、そしてその「本物であることの証明」をブロックチェーンに書き込むという、面白い試みを始めました。全ては「唯一無二」のものを束にすることにあります。

3つの戦略 NFTs、暗号債、チョコレート

NFTのコレクションから商品を購入することで、ベネズエラの研究と森林再生活動を継続するための資金を提供することになります。

クリプトボンド(=暗号資産・Crypto Bonds) 「CacaoShares ERC20」を購入することで、カカオの木に投資し、そのリターンを受け取ることができます。

そして限定版チョコレートを購入すると、パタネモに新しい苗木1本が寄付されます。

人々にとってより良いものを、地球にとってより良いものを

持続可能なカカオは、チョコレート業界のメンバーが夢見る約束です。私たちは、上記のNFTやCrypto Bondsのようなテクノロジーを活用することで、チョコレート業界の不正や不公平を助長する悲しいことに、品質や入手性におけるギャップを埋めることができると考えています。

例えば、アフリカでは、ある商品が調達センター(巨大な倉庫のようなもの)に到着すれば、その産地や支払われた価格を知ることは簡単ですが、それ以前のことはほとんど知られていません。森林伐採が行われたのか、どのような価格で取引されたのか、どのような関係者がサプライチェーンに関与しているのかを知ることは、ほぼ不可能です。 

カカオが本当にサステナブルであるためには、地球と人々に敬意を払いながら生産・調達され、公正な報酬と喜びをもって支払われる必要があるのです。

「ファーストマイル」のトレーサービリティー(追跡可能性)の重要性とブロックチェーンへの取り組みとの関連性

上記のようなイレギュラーはすべてファーストマイル、つまり最初の1キロメートルで発生します。カカオ豆が木から調達先まで移動するとき。また、収穫後に何が起こっているのか、関係者がどのような扱いを受けているのか、どのような有害な農薬が農業プロセスのどのレベルで使用されているのか、などを知ることは難しいということが、インパクトある「ファーストマイル」のアイデアから分かります。

これらの情報を得ることが難しいだけでなく、多くの “不都合な真実 “を抱えています。

パタネモ村とのパイロット・ワークでは、私たち独自の調査とストーリーテリングの要素を組み合わせています。透明性を追求し、必要な資金援助があれば、規模を拡大し、より生産的な単位に到達できると考えています。

NFT、CryptoBonds、限定チョコレートの販売でパタネモに期待すること

先に説明したように、私たちカカオシェアはビジョンを実現するために3つの戦略を持っています。

1Bar for 1Tree 限定チョコレート。パタネモのカカオを使用し、繊細に作られたBean to Barチョコレートで、日本のオンラインショップで販売されます。チョコレートが1つ売れるごとに、パタネモのカカオ生産者協同組合にカカオの苗木を1本寄付します。

CryptoBonds: イーサリアムブロックチェーン上に展開されるCacaoshares CCS Tokenは、生産単位である「木」を購入するのと同等の利回りを持つデジタル商品です。私たちからCacaoshares Cryptobondsを購入するクライアントは、パタネモのカカオに投資していることになります。さらに、カカオシェアは完全に譲渡可能であり、木の寿命まで価値の貯蔵として機能します。

NFTsコレクション:チョコレート作品に魂を込め、ブロックチェーンに書き込まれたデジタルアートの非常に限定的な作品です。NFTを購入することで、お客様はパタネモの研究活動に貢献することができます。特に、昨年2021年に中央ヴェネズエラ大学との共同研究で開始した収穫後の作業方法の改善を継続することができます。

技術としてのNFTは、私たちの将来のトレーサビリティ・プログラムの基礎となるものです サービスとしてのトレーサビリティ®」。

トレーサビリティ・アズ・ア・サービス® by CacaoShares

デジタルアートの制作によく使われるNFTを鋳造するのと同じ技術を使い、世界中のカカオ農家やトレーダーが安価にトレーサビリティトークンを作成し、そのロットの所有権を証明できるサービスとして、私たちのプラットフォームを提供する予定です。

何百万人ものユーザーが利用している暗号ウォレットを使えば、当社のウェブサイトにアクセスするだけで、安価に自分の所有権証明書を作成することができます。

これらの証明書は、カカオシェアのブロックチェーン署名によって本物であることが検証され、追加サービスとして注文できるブロックチェーンに保存された調査報告書をデジタルで貼付することができます。

NFTs, Crypto and Chocolate

How can new technologies help us have better chocolate?

Despite its importance for chocolate making; Cacao and Cacao agriculture has not changed much since the last century. Most of us are aware of the challenges that climate change and dryer/warmer weather conditions pose for cacao cultivation. 

However, little is known about the threatened subvarieties of ancestral cacaos that can be found in Venezuela. Patanemo is one of these ancestral cacaos . Regularly we talk about this topic in our blog and our presentations. It is a real challenge for the world and for chocolate lovers to preserve ancestral cacaos from Venezuela. It is said that by year 2050 Cacao may disappear or become a GMO (all cacaos tasting the same coming from genetically modified crops)

At Cacaoshares we dream of becoming a movement that helps disseminate these ancestral varieties all over the appropriate climates for it. Keeping chocolate pure and authentic, diverse and natural within its original environment

Quite a simple idea: More and more trees: Grown within the Rainforest

Our movement, Cacaoshares, hopes to create awareness on Cacao preservation and better chocolate. This is why we created the first Cacao based Token in The world, the ERC20 (Ethereum Network) Cacaoshares and more recently we started curating (or minting) NFTs (Non Fungible Tokens) That are blockchain stored digital art creations soulbound to bean to bar chocolate

Sounds interesting, but it is all about creating bundles of unique things: digital art, bean to bar chocolate and writing its “authenticity certificate” in the blockchain

Three strategies: NFTs, Crypto Bonds and Chocolate

  • By buying items from our collection of NFTs clients will be contributing funds for us to continue our activities of research and reforestation in Venezuela
  • By buying Crypto Bonds (CacaoShares ERC20) clients invest in Cacao trees and receive returns from it
  • By buying chocolate from our limited edition clients donate 1 new seedling to Patanemo

Better for the people and better for the earth

Sustainable cacao is a promise that members of the chocolate industry dream about. We think that leveraging existing technologies like the above NFTs and Crypto Bonds will help to fill gaps in quality and availability that sadly fuel injustices and unfairness in the chocolate industry.

For example, in Africa, it is easy to know the source and the price paid for a commodity once it arrives at a sourcing center (like a huge warehouse) , however little is known about it before that. It is nearly impossible to know if deforestation has occurred or what prices have been paid or which parties have been involved in the supply chain  

For Cacao to be truly sustainable it needs to be produced and sourced with respect for the earth and for the people, paid fairly and with joy 

The importance of The “First Mile” Traceability and its relevance to our blockchain initiatives

All of the above irregularities occur in the first mile, or the first kilometer. When the Cacao beans travel from the trees to the sourcing areas. The impactful “First mile” idea also tells us that it is hard to know what happens with the post harvesting  or how was the people involved treated or what kind of harmful agrochemicals are applied at which levels of the agricultural process

Not only it is hard to acquire this information but also has many “inconvenient truths”

In our pilot work with Patanemo village we combine our own research with elements of storytelling. Striving for transparency and with the necessary financial support we think we can scale up and reach more productive units

What we expect for Patanemo from selling NFTs, CryptoBonds and Limited Edition Chocolates

As explained before we, Cacaoshares has three strategies to materialize our vision

1Bar for 1Tree Limited edition Chocolate: Delicately crafted bean to bar chocolates using Patanemo cacao and sold online in Japan. For each chocolate sold we will donate one cacao seedling to the cooperative of cacao growers of Patanemo

CryptoBonds: deployed on the Ethereum blockchain Cacaoshares CCS Token are yield bearing digital instruments that are equivalent to purchasing a Tree as a productive unit. Clients who buy Cacaoshares Cryptobonds from us are investing in cacao from Patanemo. The added benefit is that Cacaoshares are fully transferable and act as a store of value for up to the life of the tree

NFTs collection: are highly exclusive pieces of digital art soulbound to a chocolate creation and written in the blockchain. By buying NFTs our clients contribute to our research activities in Patanemo. Specifically the continuation of the improvement of post harvesting practices that we started last year 2021 with the Diploma on the field with the University of Central Venezuela

NFTs as a technology provide the foundation block for our future traceability program Traceability as a Service ®

Traceability as a Service® by CacaoShares

Using the same technology used to mint the  NFTs that commonly are used for digital art creations we will provide our platform as a service for any cacao farmer or trader in the world to inexpensively create traceability tokens as proof of ownership for their lots, these “blockchain signed” lots can be fully traced, aggregated or disaggregated using a public ledger of the blockchain

With the use of the same crypto wallets that are ubiquitous and are already familiar to millions of users they can simply visit our website and mint their own certificates of ownership inexpensively

These certificates can be validated signed authentic by the blockchain signature of Cacaoshares and affixed digitally with a blockchain stored survey report that can be ordered as an extra service

Situation of the Cacao Beans Export Market in 2018

One of the main features of the CacaoShares program is our drive to be a revenue generating organization. It is no coincidence that we are following two major trends, one in Blockchain traceability with our proprietary technology which uses both physical and DApp sensors. Then, the other important trend which is also very measurable is one in the Chocolate Industry, specifically the world market for Venezuela Cacao Beans

As we can see in the following exhibit, from the Japan Ministry of Finance, in 2018 the trend has been sustained with imports accounting to of 3,113 Tons (only until September 2018) entering via all major sea ports in Japan, mainly Yokohama port.

It is expected that this number will increase in the last months of the year due to the fact that it is harvest time in Venezuela, hence many consignments are being prepared for export

Exhibit 1: Japan imports of Cacao beans from Venezuela until September 2018
Exhibit 1: Japan imports of Cacao beans from Venezuela until September 2018

 

 

 

Moreover, we can see in exhibit 2 the situation of exports to the world which highlights our rationale that more Cacao exports to Asia will be beneficial for the industry. Particularly rare varieties and with supply chain transparency of the kind that only our blockchain technology can provide
