In a nutshell, it allows data to smoothly be recorded from an external physical object to the digital world of blockchain, and subsequently any application or interface with the relevant security permissions (public, private, semi-private). Having such functionalities demonstrates that the Hermes Masternode is the central piece of the Ambrosus ecosystem.
For the luxury coffee supply chains of the future, a need remains for a transparent, fair and decentralized system that can help enterprises, customers, and farmers themselves with managing the supply chain: Tracking the coffee from the farmer to the supermarket (in real-time), determining the effort of every farmer and rewarding them fairly so as to allow the customer to know exactly where his coffee comes from without any authority in between.
Hermes Masternodes are open-sourced for use, and can be easily managed from the Ambrosus GitHub page. The value proposition for entrepreneurs is straightforward: for 25$ USD any entrepreneur can upload a bundle of data onto the Ambrosus Network. In the context of the coffee supply chain, this means that coffee entrepreneurs can offer traceability solutions for much more than 25$ USD per bundle!
Last but not least, grant support and funding is available for interested entrepreneurs, especially when it comes to developing user-facing applications, or back-end data recording solutions. To get started reach out to [email protected]!
