The perishable produce space is fragmented and inefficient, yet fundamental as global consumers rely daily on the goods supplied.

RIPER is an AgriDeFi project built on top of an essential economy with pre-existing users and has the potential to accelerate moving small farmers out of financial hardship.

KEY FEATURES

PRODUCE TRACEABILITY

Consumers can identify, track and trace elements of a product as it moves along the supply chain from raw goods to finished products.

MICRO-FINANCING

Providing farmers with access with invoices up to the value of US$10,000 per invoiced transaction. Each invoice can also be insured by one or more insurance companies to mitigate payment default risks.

FACILITATING TRADE

The RIPER platform will be designed to match orders from buyers and farmers of perishable goods to provide an accessible and intuitive marketplace with high liquidity to support their business transactions. Buyers benefit as they gain access to a longer interest-free period on their purchases.

EMPOWERING FARMERS

Offering a new level of financial control to farmers by paying them first. This can help them pay off existing debt, prevent them from getting into further debt, improve their cash flow and also enable them to expand their business if conditions are right in order to earn more income.

Sustainable Agriculture

Farm data is collected and shared by farmers in the ecosystem to regulate sustainable farming practices. This increase in transparency of traditional supply chains, through RIPER’s blockchain-enabled protocol, bolsters the global effort to increase sustainability in the agriculture sector.

Standards and Certifications

Bringing farm-to-fork food transparency and food certifications to mainstream adoption. RIPER will allow the quality and safety of food to be tracked throughout the cycle from farming to consumption.

RIPER ECOSYSTEM

Data Integrity

The current supply chain industry aggregates data in a centralized way, prompting many concerns about data integrity and accountability. Through the RIPER ecosystem, $RPR tokens enable seamless and low friction trades targeted at different stakeholders in multi-organization supply chains on a global level.

Data Immutability

Each trade that occurs on the RIPER ecosystem leaves a fingerprint that is immutable on the blockchain. This facilitates the validation of sensitive data through publicly verifiable blocks.

Scalability

Non-blockchain solutions are expensive when it comes to data operations and lack adequate database properties. The $RPR blockchain protocol, overcomes existing system issues by handling significant amounts of data and transactions, thus reducing cost for farmers and multinational SMEs.

Interoperability

The $RPR token is an SPL token issued on the Solana network. An improved decision from our previous choice of Ethereum’s ERC20 token as gas prices are volatile and not inclusive for all as it is often prohibitively expensive. RIPER may be deployed on multi-chains in the future.

A Decade Experience in Agriculture

2009 - Founder began agriculture practice and investing in open field farming in Asia and North America.

2010 - Investment in vertical indoor farming and databasing traded pricing and volume of perishable crops.

2011 - Expansion in commercialize greenhouse farming, targeting domestic wholesale pricing.

2012 - Expansion with Australian partners utilizing sensory technology on farms to capture data on and off-site to achieve food safety and traceability.

2013 - Partnered with reputable greenhouse manufacturers to expand into global projects to capture more metrics in growing in various environments.

2014 - Exited from company with proprietary metrics and data to pharmaceutical company"(specialized data on Ginseng for cosmetic use).

2015 - Created algorithm for variables in horticultural investments to mitigate risks and manage operations.

2016 - Integrated geothermal, biomass and solar energy solutions to create off-the-grid farming sites.

2017 - Expansion into wholesale, retail and tourism for farm sites in Asia.

2018 - Expansion into fintech leveraging off domain knowledge and historic data to increase yields, provide consistent quality and stable pricing.

2019 - Expansion with farmed derivatives and bioscience into skincare with hemp ingredients (providing more options for farmer income).

2020

RIPER concept established

RIPER concept was established as many farmers had reoccurring problems that we believed could be solved with available technologies. We researched more on the project with industry blockchain and technology experts on how decentralized finance would benefit the ecosystem in agriculture.

ABOUT US

Our priority is to ensure that farmers get paid first without needing to use collateral to access funding, thereby mitigating their risk of losing their entire farming assets. By creating a financial platform that opens a path for farmers to access finance without taking on debt, we firmly believe that this is the first step to creating a better way for farmers to sustain their way of life.

This is aimed at empowering farmers to get to a better financial standpoint so they can spend more time enjoying what they do instead of worrying about money. Help us persuade more farmers to pursue their craft and make it worth their while.
