What is the hidden story behind the jar of honey you picked up from the grocer? Have you ever even given it a second thought? Well, in case you didn’t know, there is so much more to this extraordinary creation of unique technology than first meets the eye.
Honey never loses its nutritious value, even over decades. That makes it the perfect product to even take along on the Mars expedition since it is entirely beneficial for humans. But, in addition to honey, do bees provide anything else from which we may benefit?
To dive deeper, we can compare the honey-making process with something clearly known to us. For instance, humanity can currently produce more than 150 different products such as petroleum, plastic, nylon, Aspirin,and even Vaseline using just a single barrel of crude oil.
Just imagine honey having the same variety of value! The intense activity boiling inside the hive can provide us with more than two dozen different yields! Of course, we can’t promise that analyzing the hive productiveness won’t put oil productivity to shame.
And this doesn’t even include the bee’s essential mission of crucial life sustaining activity! Let’s just consider the ecological and other useful benefits and aspects of our project as an extra bonus!
Meet Our Team
At the very beginning, the project’s concept was outlined by those strongly engaged in business industries, such as import-export, industrial manufacturing, IT, marketing, security systems, and even diplomacy.
Fifteen years ago, Igor Ganea was a 22-year-old man arriving in China with only five thousand dollars in his pocket. Today, he owns a group of companies oriented on the agricultural sphere, wine industry, restaurant business, crypto mining, and business relations with branch offices in over a dozen countries worldwide providing 400 employees with income. At the same time, priority was given to apiculture intensification as it was the most perspective domain trusted by business leader.
Daniil Mosco, who devoted his entire life to the IT industry and who reached extraordinary outcomes within it, has a gift for not losing any of his modesty and determination during his projects. A self-starter, mostly on a voluntary basis, back at the dawn of the computer era, Daniil brought joy and pleasure to the first gamers by maintaining and setting up game servers for the most popular games at that time. His successful web solutions were noticeable even back then, and his ability to manage teams has resulted in long lasting relationships with many developers over the years, eventually turning his passion into a successful IT company.
Currently, Daniil’s team consists of almost 100 talented engineers who are designing and developing great websites, building software at enterprise level, and delivering solutions in security, communications, and data storage.
Furthermore, Daniil has not stopped developing software solutions, but instead progressed to delivering hardware solutions in his lab, which has played a significant role in our project.
The Idea Key Concept
Any business project has a chance to be successful when it is highly effective. When creating the industrial apiary, we encountered two factors which, despite evolving together over a hundred years, are extremely opposite.
- First, there is the bee. If we want to dive a bit deeper into conspiracy theories, we could say this organism was created by a much higher developed civilization than ours. So far, humankind has only studied about 25% of what bees are and what they can do. There are many factors still remaining a mystery, such as how the bee, which has found a flower kilometers away from the hive can return and communicate to other bees the flower’s location with an accuracy of centimeters using a specific language. Furthermore, how could a fragile body be so amazingly enhanced with so much productive capacity, capable of producing honey from raw materials (simple pollen and nectar), as well as beeswax, propolis (the most effective natural remedy for the defense of the immune system), royal jelly (unexplored product, capable of transforming a regular bee into a queen bee), drone jelly (same story as with the queen bee, but the bee turns into a drone due to a different set of hormones), and bee venom – the most intense venom in the world. They are perfect constructors, perfect defenders, they have precise techniques to train their young offspring, and they have a well-regulated economy led by the queen bee. And this is all one insect weighing 100 mg.
- Second, is beekeeping. For your understanding, the development of apiculture stopped around a hundred years ago. Yes, yes – exactly the time the first hive was created, which is currently continuously used by 90% of beekeepers. Yes, around the same time the beekeepers journal was created to help keep records of the apiaries, but its effectiveness decreases considerably when a beekeeper has more than thirty hives. Today, there is no unique institution dedicated to bee-related research, while the variety of beekeeper approaches makes standardization impossible, consequently generating multiple concepts on apiculture intensification.
Summarizing the above, we have realized that the idea of efficient infrastructure for industrial apiary maintenance based on today's human knowledge will fail. Therefore, our intentions are focused on developing our own technology based on recent human progress in various domains: industry, agricultural, livestock, IT technologies, and Blockchain.
The Project Goals
Over the past ten and even hundred thousand years, the bee has successfully adapted its vital activity. In fact, the bee is such a completely self-sufficient creature that together we may strike a deal on a reciprocal basis. In other words, we provide a comfortable environment (the hive) and arrange a stable workflow (feed source) and in return the bee will share the hive’s ample products. As you might have noticed, humans are not very involved in the above scenario and this is absolutely the main idea of our project.
The Secondary Objectives
For this purpose, we require a blockchain technology database fed with digital information regarding production and logistics processes, output level, location, weather conditions, quality assurance, and consumption figures. This avoids the main concern related to existing prejudice on bee products' potential falsification risks.
Promotional efforts are focused on honey's privileged position among basic foods products. The necessary honey consumption rate is 50 g per day and according to global statistics, people consume around 3% of the minimal daily ratio. At this point, a great potential for increasing honey consumption in the world up to 15-20 times is absolutely evident. However, at this very moment the manufacturing facilities won’t manage this growing demand. Our approach related to this issue will be further discussed.
Gradual elimination of sugar consumption by switching to honey is in parallel with the strong correlation between honey and sugar prices. Our global perspective can directly prevent common human maladies like obesity and cardio-vascular disease. We suggest the following economic and technological scheme as a solution to the above problem.
The Tokenomics of the Project
Our project is designed on the basis of a ten-year strategic plan. The main focus should lie on the creation of 1.000.000 hive units. This is the world’s first project aimed at the tokenization of a particular life-form and the consequent encapsulation of value in tradeable units equal to one token. Bearing in mind that the average amount of bees in a hive equals 50.000 units, we are going to create 50.000.000.000 tokens.
Based on a current economic model, the market cost of a bee is equal to $0.01 according to our estimates. That amount is crucial to us since it forms the basis of further economic infrastructure and feasibility evidence of this project.
Once created tokens are frozen, certain FrozenDrop conditions should be strictly stipulated by a smart contract. The conditions for token freezing and unfreezing are entirely dependent on annual financial reporting of our venture. Upon termination of the beekeeping year (the end of October) and in compliance with the hives’ quantity, an exact number of coins which matches the following rule “the number of bee families on venture multiplied by 50.000” would become unfrozen.
The crypto holders who own more than 50.000 tokens could start stacking for validation of crypto assets and consequent possession of a virtual hive. Those investors would be granted access to the telemetry of the real hive, de facto recorded in our balance-sheet, with the option to get it in NFT resolution in the future, plus annual profit equal to 7% based on an average net profit from one hive of the company, which would be paid in APIZ tokens.
The holders of 2.500.000 tokens would become “virtual apiary owners” with the privilege to select the location for the virtual prototype. Furthermore, this implies additional beneficial options like entitlement to control a part of manufactured products, a personal tour into real apiary locations to meet our activity, along with feasibility to join beekeepers during real-time apiary checkup using VR technologies. Those investors will benefit from 10% of profits based on an average net profit from one hive of the company.
The Economic Analyses of the Project
This outlines our essential arguments in favor of stable growth of the token’s value based on the offline project evolving. Today, the cost per bee is $0.01, meanwhile beekeepers earn $0.017 income per bee within the year. The above figures prove beekeeping to be a profitable business; however, the outcome is achieved through an outdated approach. Below are a few examples of major improvements we have made from the beginning until now. It should be noted that we started our project not even from the zero-point, since additional expenses related to initial research and necessary adaptation were implied. Therefore, we consider that the starting point lies below the zero point on the scale with negative values.
Nowadays almost all beekeepers in the world use wooden hives in their activity. Meanwhile, our apiaries are equipped with an invention of our own - hives made of environmentally friendly, food-grade polystyrene. This provides bees with up to 300% higher thermal insulation, halving honey consumption within the low season and decreasing the bees mortality up to 60% during long-lasting, unfavorable conditions.
Currently, according to apiculture performance standards, there should be one beekeeper per hundred hives. This assumption leads to significant expenses related to salary funds, as well as recruiting, training, and staff services. At the same time, guided by our technology, a beekeeper could maintain two hundred hives. Consequently, we are working actively on enhancing our personal efficiency.
Basically, the owners of small apiaries use their personal transport while transferring hives to a new feeding source. This general approach causes high expenses and disengaged equipment. We employ a few heavy goods vehicles for the entire workflow, increasing our efficiency fifteen times in contrast with regular beekeepers.
Going off the above scenario, it is clearly evident that every process in our project is deeply analyzed to define the maximum efficiency. Based on the current conditions, we have already managed to reach an outcome equal to $0.025 annually per bee. According to our estimates, in ten years we will reach the target profit of $0.15 annually per bee.
Today, we observe a stable growth of our venture, bearing in mind that up-to-date progress occurred without any particular platform designed prior to our experience. Based on this, we are one hundred percent convinced in a successful project implementation and are strongly motivated toward further investments. Since this project is not a start-up, some ventures are consequently already profitable. The amount of total contribution in the project is equal to $6.000.000 while the project up-to-date price is $25.000.000. Therefore, we stand ready to guarantee the safety of your investments in this crypto project.
Rooted in the fact that the beekeeping cycle is equivalent to a calendar year, all funds received and invested in this industrial apiary project will be controlled, being automatically locked by a project in equipment, bee communities, technological, or marketing solutions. Upon expiration of the full cycle from the date of investment infusion, the funds might be released by the project with further allowance to use them freely again.
Consequently, we could provide our investors with guarantees that the investments into our token would return at the amount of 110% within 18 months since the purchase date is in correlation with its value for the moment of purchase. This unique interrelation between the crypto project and the offline project in the real economical domain, allows us to secure your investments in a way that could be compared with gold-backed currency provided by the state in the past. This way, any possible force-majeure which might lead to your financial losses are nearly excluded.
As you may have noticed, this project is an ideal symbiosis between the crypto-world and a real one, where we lived for ten thousand years before and where we go on living today, but nevertheless it must evolve and optimize to the current realities. With every single day, the APIZ project is turning into the most preferable way to connect people engaged in agriculture, animal production, and other industries from the real world to the world of cryptocurrencies and blockchain. But don’t forget that those who have dived so deeply into the studying, development, and investments in the IT sphere still swing by the store in the evening with a shopping list handwritten by the wife caring for babies, or they still indulge fine dining together with friends at a restaurant. All these chains together with transparency of quality control and fair pricing assurance can be ensured in the real world with a project like ours. We are absolutely convinced of it and will prove to the world how right we are!
