Stellar and Bext360 Give Coffee The Blockchain Treatment

A technology firm is utilizing Stellar’s Blockchain network to provide provably fair coffee sales from grower to consumer.

Bext360, a Denver-based startup, has built a robot for automatically assessing coffee bean quality, along with cloud software and an app that tracks the sales process using the technology.

“…In general, groups working on fair trade spend a lot of overhead on tracing materials. They use rudimentary tracing mechanisms. And it’s very imprecise. People in the field can still get exploited,” CEO Daniel Jones told TechCrunch about the current fair trade market.

Bext360’s mobile robot is a glorified weighing scale. It employs optical sorting to distinguish good from bad beans and also deliver a quality score on a batch. Buyers and sellers then use the accompanying app to work out a fair price and the goods are then tracked further with Stellar.

“In so doing, the oft-touted benefits of fair trade are brought to their conclusion, with a party further along the chain able to ‘know down to the cup’ where the coffee came from and whether a fair price was paid,” Jones said.

The concept has already proven popular with investors, a previous funding round generating $1.2 mln.

The successful implementation is a further boon for Stellar, whose network is seeing increasing updates and international use cases come to fruition.

Weight loss is one of the most highly searched terms on the Internet for a reason. Everyone wants to look their best, but sometimes forget along the way that it is also about feeling their best and living their best. This is why unhealthy diets and supplements that promise quick results seem to prevail within the market. Valentus wants to change that by delivering a product that not only helps people achieve their weight loss goals, but does so in a healthy manner. The Valentus Slimroast Coffee is made from healthy, natural ingredients like Non GMO Dark Roast Coffee, Chlorogenic Acid (Green Coffee extract), Garcinia Cambogia , Cassiolamine Green Tea Extract, Ginseng Extract, and L-Carnitine with Chromium. Each of these ingredients pack a thermogenic punch that can help control appetite, regulate sugar and fat absorption, increase focus, and promote brain health. Dave Jordan, founder and CEO, believes that providing product alternatives to what people usually reach for is the key to helping them maintain a healthier lifestyle.

“So many people start their day with coffee,” he explains. “So if we can substitute that Starbucks extra sugar, extra syrup, super sized latte with a coffee that tastes great and promotes a health weight then we’ve helped our clients get over one of their weight loss hurdles. Our product is coffee. It’s what they’re used to drinking in the morning, anyway. The difference is that our coffee will help them curb their appetite, boost their metabolism, and help them focus so they don’t have to keep drinking more of it or reach for a soda.”

The Valentus Slimroast Coffee is an Italian dark roast coffee that has been supplemented with natural appetite suppressants. People who have used the Slimroast Coffee have experienced weight loss, renewed energy, and vitality. Currently, the product is sold through the website and select distributors in single sizes, and discounts for larger orders.

When the SlimRoast coffee came out, I started drinking one cup a day. I was shocked by what happened next! The inches began to melt off, and my body seemed to be toning up all by itself – without exercising!
