HempCoin – Optimizing Services in the Agriculture Trade Industry

Agriculture has proven to be one of the strongest backbones to developing several countries globally, especially in Africa. The agriculture industry comprises several sectors hence giving jobs to numerous groups of people as well. The Hemp Industry, another pivot in the Agriculture industry, has seen significant growth and recorded about $700 billion in 2016 as reported. Another industry that is also breaking records in its market growth is the Tobacco Industry, whose worth has been estimated to reach a whopping $1.64 billion by 2025.

This tremendous growth results from the recent legalization of these plants across several countries, like the US. However, because of the long chain of transactions involved in its production stages, the industry accumulates substantial losses. Hence the need to put in place effective mechanisms and systems would ensure that we maximize output from these industries.

The blockchain technology has proven to be one of the safest, transparent, and decentralized technology that originated about a decade ago. Though this technology is still young, some existing industries have inculcated their operations unto it, and they are already amazed by the results. Hempcoin is a blockchain solution developed about five years ago (2014) with its sole purpose of facilitating transactions between farmers, distributors, and consumers whilst adopting the robust security systems of the blockchain technology.

The Robust and Impenetrable Security of HempCoin

To ensure maximum security, the prevention of 51% attack, and the community’s engagement in running their network, the HempCoin blockchain network was designed based on the Proof-of-Stake consensus protocol. This protocol allows community members to contribute to the HempCoin Network by having the collateral coins needed to run a masternode. In addition to this, HempCoin has inculcated into its network chain locking mechanism, which ensures that collateral funds of masternode owners are locked up for a period of 60 days whiles they receive block rewards by approving transactions instantly and privately on the network.
This locking mechanism is very fair compared to most masternode projects in the cryptosphere, requiring members to lock up their collateral funds permanently. Below is an image showing the specifications for running a masternode with HempCoin.

HempCoin’s Migration to Komodo Platform

The security of funds is of great concern to any cryptopreneur. The recent breach of security on some projects out there raised many concerns about the security features of Proof-of-Stake protocol hence the need to improve upon the security system of HempCoin. However, it has not suffered any attacks yet. To provide maximum security to its members was why HempCoin decided to migrate to the Komodo network. On the 14th of July 2019, at block 554,496, a snapshot of HempCoin’s blockchain was made to ensure a successful migration unto the Komodo blockchain network.

Komodo Network has its core technology being the Iguana Core Technology, which gives blockchain network additional features of improved security and speed in making transactions based on its C programming language, specifically JL777. Many crypto enthusiasts have concluded that the bitcoin network can’t be attacked due to its hash growth and decentralization even though it is expensive to maintain such a network. Through the consensus mechanism of notarization, Iguana Core technology has found a way to enjoy Bitcoin’s high-security level yet pay less to do this.

There are 66 notary nodes chosen based on a stake-weighted voting mechanism. Their main function is to make copies and transfer all records of transactions on the Komodo Ecosystem to the Bitcoin network, the chosen Proof-of-Work network.

These notary nodes are fully decentralized, and the ecosystem requires at least 13 of them to be online to ensure a smooth process of notarization. Cases of 51% attack are highly impossible as it requires the compromise of about 53 notary nodes to achieving this. Aside from this impossibility of getting all these notary nodes to compromise on a decentralized network, the notary nodes would also not be rewarded its block rewards and can even lose its seat in notarization for the ecosystem. The process of notarization unto an already slowed Bitcoin network allows 2-6 notarizations per hour, giving Komodo a delayed proof-of-work consensus protocol.

HempTRAC – Creating a Decentralized and Transparent data storage to distribute and track Agricultural (Hemp & Tobacco) Products.


Hemp has been identified to have essential health benefits and less Tetrahydrocannabinol, which causes euphoria in users. This has led to the legalization of the growth of hemp. Still, considering the similarities between hemp and marijuana, care must be taken so that farmers don’t grow marijuana instead of hemp. In this ever-growing world of ours, most existing online data storage can not afford the transparency and security needed to track all records that go through hemp production.

HempTRAC is a blockchain solution that has been developed by the HempCoin team to provide a real-time data storage platform right from the growth, distribution, and consumption of hemp products. The information required from both farmers and consumers would provide a real-time tracking pathway for the hemp industry. This technology is the first of its kind. All records are stored on the immutable blockchain distributed ledger, secured by both the Komodo Ecosystem and the ever-secured Bitcoin Network.

We can assume to be working with the enormous size of data about the estimated growth of the Hemp Industry. This calls for an additional security feature to ensure no unauthorized duplicates of details are taken into the system. HempTRAC solves this as it also implements the use of Unspent Transaction Output (UTXO). The implementation of UTXO on its smart contract will ensure that once a specific data is entered about a farm, product, or distributor, the same details can’t be entered again. This would go a long way to prevent any form of fraud that is usually encountered with Centralized Data Institutions. All the required information needed on the HempTRAC system are displayed on the website.

HempCoin Expands its Borders onto BinanceDEX

Binance project is among the few crypto startups that have survived the test of volatility in the cryptosphere for project development. This project keeps expanding its community from a Centralized Exchange to a Decentralized Exchange in the cryptosphere. HempCoin values the efforts of community members in the success of any blockchain solution. The effort has already been made to secure potential partners and listed on several exchanges to give HempCoin the maximum exposure it needs in the cryptosphere. To compound to this exposure, the team of HempCoin has proposed to list on BinanceDEX. With a trading volume of over $3million US and active trade markets over 60 projects, this is a growing and sustainable community to be part of. This was just not a mere wish, but actual work has already been put in place to get listed on BinanceDEX and now requires the community’s vote to get it listed.
