Origin Agritech and Elastos Foundation announced co-operation plan

Origin Agritech Limited, an agricultural biotechnology company headquartered in China and domiciled in the British Virgin Islands, and Elastos Foundation, which aims to create a new Internet system powered by blockchain technologies, announced their plan to develop a global strategic partnership. The purpose of the partnership is joint activities fostering smart economic solutions.

Origin Agritech has been developing a system for seed tracking and e-commerce solutions in order to provide the best seed technologies to Chinese farmers. Origin and Elastos had several years of trial experience when Elastos assisted the BVI company in developing its e-commerce platform, and now the companies believe that the formal co-operation in developing the platform based in Elastos’ Smart Web technologies would provide great service to global agribusiness transactions, data services, and rural e-commerce activities. The platform is expected to solve seed piracy problems and protect agricultural seed intellectual properties.

Both companies agreed that the founder of Elastos Mr. Rong Chen will join BVI company’s board, and Dr. Gengchen Han, chairman of Origin, will serve Elastos as an advisor. The companies also agreed on mutual investments.
