Tracey, a traceability and trade data companion, incentivizes fishers to capture catch and trade data into a blockchain-enabled application.
By utilizing direct and indirect methods of data monetization, the app gives fishers access to institutional microfinance in return for verifiable trade data; and enables data buyers, such as retailers and final buyers, to directly “tip” the fishers for the provision of verified traceability data.
Data is captured from 3rd party sensors streaming data in real-time, manual e-logging, and QR codes. Furthermore, Tracey utilizes the Global Dialogue on Seafood Traceability (GDST) data recording standards.
The data can be accessed directly from the Tracey app or via the Streamr Data marketplace. Analytics can be run on the data using the Streamr Core App to assess everything from fish stock levels within a specified geographic area, to location of seafood products in the value chain, to quantity of specific seafood products sold.
