Cannabis Data On Blockchain
Cannabis Data On Blockchain
Cannabis sativa (cannabis) has traditionally been bred and cultivated in a very decentralized manner. There was a brief period of time between the industrial revolution and widespread prohibition where industrial production of cannabis (primarily low-THC hemp) did thrive around the world. And, there have been areas in some countries where sporadic large scale production exists.
The necessarily clandestine nature of cannabis cultivation over the past century resulted in a distributed network of primarily small scale producers, particularly the breeders. Cannabis itself is also incredibly decentralized in its natural ability to grow feral in the wild on every continent except for Antarctica. These features have resulted in an incredible amount of genetic and phenotypic diversity among cannabis plants.
The extraordinary range of shapes, sizes and colors that can be produced by genetically distinct varieties of cannabis is a testament to that underlying genetic diversity. This bodes well for the longevity of cannabis breeding at both the amateur and professional level. Many experts have begun to analogize it to the breeding of wine grapes. Every winemaker has bred at least one unique variety just as every cannabis grower eventually creates their own varieties, too.
However, cannabis is not wine. We believe all cannabis is medicine; therefore, our mission is to democratize access to information and technology that facilitates open-access to the cannabis genome. Cannabis Genome DAO provides incentives to participate in open-source cannabis genome research for both private individuals who grow their own cannabis as well as businesses that are traditionally incentivized to withhold information in pursuit of profit.
We're doing this by creating CannaData.Market and providing $CSAT tokens as a reward to community participants, thereby aligning the interests of all cannabis producers and consumers depending on their level of contribution. There are many groups working to preserve cannabis genetic resources and we see to connect them with individuals who are working with cannabis independently. Additionally, through an open-source and community owned data marketplace we have incentivized both public and private interests to share that very same information. Open-access cannabis genome research will expedite the development of optimized therapeutic applications of cannabis for anyone who participates in this community.
There is no central leadership and decisions are made in a bottom-up way. Instead, governance is entrusted to the community rather than a select few. Members can join pseudonymously and participate remotely. No single person is anyone else's "boss".
Operations and onboarding are automated as much as possible to enable members to contribute seamlessly. Each member joins on their own volition and is self-motivated to participate. Members work on what they want, how they want, when they want.
Rules are proposed and decided on collectively through an autonomous voting system. Radical transparency is the norm. Participation is rewarded based on an equitable meritocracy. Members are accountable to themselves, the community, and the organizations rules.
Welcome to our community! This introduction was created to give you a short and effective onboarding experience that will introduce you to the group, the tools we use to manage our community, and how to get involved. All new members start with this introduction. After reading this section, you'll be well on your way to completing your first step toward full membership - joining the Discord server.
After you join, you'll find a variety of resources that you can access:
Other members – Who’s occupying what roles in the community? Members are encouraged to craft a bio about themselves that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
Data and analysis methods – We're compiling information that can be used to accelerate the exploration of the cannabis genome.
Mission statement and policies – This is a good place to talk about that.
Articles – Recent and proposed changes to operations, summaries of the latest events, data analysis breakthroughs, the state of cannabis genome research and our impact in the world.
Becoming a member is free and only requires signing up for Discord. We have a simple instruction guide waiting there to help introduce you to the community and show you how to navigate around. You can participate pseudonymously from anywhere in the world.
Cannabis Genome DAO Overview Deck
Not at all! You can join the Discord server and gain access to the community for free. This will let you participate in discussions and interact with other members. You can also view any of the resources being shared and contribute your own. Data upload and storage fees for the marketplace will also be completely free for majority of users, as they will be subsidized by the DAO treasury and a small commission on transactions. However, voting and participating in governance will require holding $CSAT token. When CannaData.Market is live members will need $CSAT to use and analyze data. You can earn $CSAT instead of purchasing it by earning from your uploaded data or by participating in the community in other ways.
The invention of smart contracts enables completely automated enforcement of the organizations rules. Everything from onboarding new members, proposing changes, voting/decision making, funding projects and getting paid is 100% automated and transparent. By implementing these concepts on a publicly auditable blockchain we can achieve a truly honest meritocratic democracy.
