Floral Industry

Global turnover of $100+ Billion (source Wikipedia Floral Industry).

Inefficient methods of payment, foreign exchange rates, customs and worldwide logistics make Floraco THE solution this industry has been waiting for.

Flowers international

The flowers you see and buy in the flower shop around the corner are mostly grown in Africa and South America. Because of this, there have already been numerous payments and administrative actions taken before your bouquet has even been placed on your table.

Expensive payments

Think of how expensive and time consuming it is to make overseas payments as well as the high costs that come with exchanging currency between Dollar, Euro, Kenyan Shilling, Japanese Yen, British Pound, etcetera.

Blockchain solutions

Financial transactions are one of the many uses of Blockchain. There are also many other opportunities within the Floral Industry and with the use of Smart Contracts, the use of Blockchain will be made even more efficient. Our Roadmap shows the future uses of Floraco.

Smart Contracts

Smart Contracts allow for credible transactions without the need of third parties. These transactions are trackable, irreversible, and legal.

Flower Growers

will add the specific product information such as quality, variety, color and length.

Trade

will add prices as well as contractual agreements for transaction that are made.

Ecoligical Footprint

together with labels such as Rainforest Alliance, there is a traceability for flowers starting from the moment they are planted.

Logistics

adds logistical information such as air freight, land transport, transport times and climate conditions.

Floracoin

payment by check is outdated and payment by credit card expensive, yet both are frequently used within the Floral Industry. Floracoin and other crypto currencies will take the place of banks.

Customs

will add the phytosanitary approval for exporting to the concerning country. This paperwork alone can be very time consuming. 

 

Technology

The Blockchain is the ideal technology for communication between all parties in the Floral Industry.

Efficiency

All information can easily be added and seen by our participants. As a result, the many parties that nowadays manage transactions such as trading platforms, banks and legal parties will become obsolete.

Speed and lower costs

With the use of Blockchain Technology, Smart Contracts and our own Floracoin, Floraco will lower the costs of transactions drastically and will also make them both lightning fast and secure, making the Floral Industry way more efficient.

Add Blocks

All participants of Floraco can add ‘Blocks’ of information. The transactions will be kept up to date, such as: supply and demand, supply conditions, contracts, order status and financial settlements.

Floracoin

The Floral Industry has an estimated global turnover of over $100 Billion a year. The Floracoin has been created to make transactions faster, safer, less costly and more efficient in general.The Floracoin is already in use for beta testing by several companies.

Floraco and partners are in the process of setting up a network to provide Flower Bouquets in an increasing number of countries, with the possibility to pay in Floracoin.
