Food scarcity is a tragic unnecessary plight in modern society. In the US, an Est. 30 - 40 % of the food supply ends up in landfills. I believe blockchain technology has reached a point were we can leverage the technology to eradicate hunger completely.
What it does
Frugal Pantry is a B2B marketplace for farmers and businesses to buy and sell overstock produce as wells as donate to NGOs and Food Banks
How I built it
I built a prototype using figma to wireframe and export html, css, and react js. I also used Marlowe, a smart contract language built for the Cardano blockchain to enable escrow contracts.
Challenges I ran into
No experience with figma, or Marlowe prior to the hackathon
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Getting a prototype on paper. Learning more about Marlowe
What I learned
Working remote made it much harder to find teamates
What's next for Marketplace for Overstock Produce
build a working app
