We are digitizing a rural and remote coffee farming community through blockchain technology and unprecedented access to digital resources and digital funding. Help us build!
We believe that 'Direct trade' is an action word - not just a fancy marketing phrase for coffee brands. Have you just had some coffee from Sherwood Forest Coffee Estate? Then get involved and participate in our community.
Funds are deposited in a 'multi-sig' vault ensuring transparency and fairness. It is the first time such as Social project has happened in Jamaica - and you play a key role in making it happen.
There is only ONE item in the world as unique as the product you have scanned. The QR code represents a digital identity - an NFT which is recorded on our blockchain. And it is unique - its like a fingerprint for this particular item you have.
When you scan our QR code from a product that originated at Sherwood Forest Coffee Estate, you have seen exactly where your coffee came from and what journey it has been on.
The farmers and workers involved in producing this fantastic product are all from the 'Sherwood Forest Community' and have joined forces with us to become the first Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee tech empowered village.
The support you give is distributed on the blockchain via a secure digital 'vault' ( a so-called Multi-sig set up on Gnosis Safe) using a range of protocols we have set up for our partners. Here's how your 'building blocks' will help to boost the community:
Right now the Sherwood Community Multi-Sig vault (wallet address: jamaicabmc.eth) pays out directly to our community members based on their role - and your participation. Every month. The more you get involved - the greater the direct impact and difference you make.
The main 3 areas we have chosen for impact are outlined below - and we will post progress continuously on our media channels.
Use any digital wallet and make a transfer to our wallet address: jamaicabmc.eth. If you don't have a digital wallet already we propose creting a Metamask wallet - takes just a few minutes - and go from there. But the choice is yours.
Our Sherwood Community wallet is in fact what is called a 'multi-sig' vault. It means that to ensure fairness and transparency it requires several digital authorisations from different wallet holders.
Our members have different roles and needs in our community. Support is transferred to them based on these parameters, and protocols are set up to ensure that whatever is in the vault is spent on the community members.
