Almond - Be the Change the Earth Needs

What is ‘Almond’

Almond is a blockchain-based company, looking to ensure a bright future for the Earth. The company offers a platform geared toward incentivising consumers to develop spending habits with an eye on sustainability. The platform is mobile-based, and can be used on both IOS and Android systems.

This free platform looks to usher in a brighter future through incentive tasks such as:

  • Buying Challenges
    • Thoughtful tips to utilize sustainable goods and services
  • Action Challenges
    • Tailoring habitual actions such as exercise, showering, etc., to reflect a sustainable attitude
  • Offsetting Challenges
    • Encouragement of participation in carbon offsetting activities.

By gamifying and incentivizing the completion of such tasks, it is hoped that habits will change, and we will no longer simply be ignorant to the issues at hand. Rather, we will partake in sustainable activities by default.

What is the Problem?

We live in a throwaway world. Most of us are simply ignorant to the amount of waste created every day, through normal mundane tasks and activities. This waste is often justified in the name of convenience. While some companies have begun to warm to the idea of sustainability (no more ‘one use’ items), it is still a woefully underdeveloped trait within most industries.

A large part of the problem is simply a lack of transparency afforded to consumers. People are not often ignorant due to their own choosing – you can’t know what you don’t know. The consumer goods industry needs a user friendly and effective means of communicating to the world, the level of sustainability in its products. Hopefully, by doing so, consumers can make an active choice to buy ‘green’.

How will Almond Solve It?

Almond intends to solve the problems discussed above through the continued development of their platform. To ensure constant development, the company has decided to host their own security token offering. This fund raising event will be facilitated by TokenMarket – a UK based issuance platform with a strong track record in crowdfunding.

During the course of the sale, the team at Almond intends to raise £2.4 million. They indicate that these funds will not only cover their released roadmap, but give the company a 2 year runway to achieve their goals.

Known as Almond Shares, these digital securities represent an asset that combines the perks of blockchain – transparency, immutability, efficiency, etc. – along with those of traditional investments. As such, these tokens represent not only ownership rights, but dividends as well.

Naturally, as these are digital securities being sold through the funding event, participation comes with restriction. To learn more about eligibility, make sure to visit the Almond site HERE.

The Team?

Drawing upon their experience in a variety of industries, the following individuals are well poised to ensure the bright future of Almond.

Oliver Bolton – CEO

Thomas Matecki – CTO

Rory O’Grady – CPO

Lorenzo Curci – COO

The team established Almond in 2017, and continues to guide its operations today.
