‘If it can be measured, it can be improved.’
What if we had a better idea of what kinds of life existed in a specific region of water? Imagine having a warehouse full of goods with no inventory tracking. How would you know if someone was taking too much? You wouldn’t. Our Oceans face a number of threats and often we don’t learn the impacts until it’s too late. We hope to change that.
Our main approach consists of utilizing the valuable attributes of the Ethereum blockchain technology such as traceable tokens as well as transparent smart contracts for the purpose of protecting one of the world’s most precious assets - the oceans.
The OCN Coin provides an infrastructure and support system to the Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) and Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZs) established around coastlines of countries and islands.
Unlike other concepts of this nature. We put a commercial value on the assets in the ocean that are often harvested for fishing. Our strategy is to provide a financial value to protecting waters as opposed to seeing it as a liability.
This project is not yet live
Our new partnership with the Alligator Head Foundation in Jamacia will enable us to conduct all of our field tests with ease. We are in the midst of our seed round funding to officially launch this technology. Our blockchain backend has been developed awaiting our first real world trials.
Once we have finished our raise, we will be in the waters around Jamacia in less than one month.
OCN works with a number of groups to find
the most efficient ways of collecting data.
The not so secret, secret weapon in monitoring protected areas
Imagine a vessel that is able to autonomously collect data around your protected area and able to intercept potential violators unmanned. The Mako is a multi-purpose solution provided by our partners at iSENSYS
OCN is presently working with a team at Harvard University to build data gathering tools that locals in very remote areas can use to better understand their waters. In some cases providing water samples that are later sent to a lab to detect Environmental DNA or eDNA that may exist. This technology is still in its early stages but with the help of experts a Harvard, we are getting closer to being able to get a unique picture of what lies beneath.
As we explore this technology more, we hope to empower the communities that we help with high resolution data sets that one day will predict issues before they become catastrophic.
