The goal of the The OpenVino Project is to create the world’s first open-source, transparent winery, and wine-backed cryptocurrency by exposing Costaflores’ technical and business practices to the world.
Transparency is a key value for building sustainable, ethical, profitable businesses, and is an important tool for small companies.
The OpenVino Project breaks down in five main areas:
OPEN SOURCE COMPANY
We want to develop a new business model that other companies can reference and adapt; an altruistic experiment to create a new ethical and sustainable business model.
We also wish to integrate open-source technologies and cloud services development techniques. The project development will be documented, as a case-study for future cloud services developments.
ORGANIC WINE BACKED CRYPTOCURRENCY
We will spawn a new cryptocurrency and create the world's first “wine-backed” currency and trading platform.
DIY ORGANIC VITICULTURE BIOTECHNOLOGY
Controlling the grape’s growth with Arduino technology will allow us to have real time information about the vine.
YOU DRINK IT,
YOU OWN IT
But documenting end-drinker opinions and circumstances require time and effort on behalf of the consumer. With The OpenVino Project we break ground by paying customers for their feedback.
In exchange for the information they provide about our product, we pay them with actual shares in the company, Organic Costaflores S.A. The concept is: “when you drink it, you own it.”.
VINE WINE DINE MIND
We want to incorporate the ultimate traceability tools: Vine → Wine → Dine → Mind that allow us to follow our product from vineyard to mouth, and beyond.
