Are my data and private keys secure when using Geora?
How does Geora use blockchain?
Geora’s platform uses a private Ethereum blockchain network to act as the "source of truth" for supply chain data. Geora’s powerful developer API integrates with the blockchain to make integration with the blockchain as easy as a non-blockchain platform. Geora chooses to base its architecture on the Ethereum blockchain network for its powerful smart contract capabilities, developer tooling availability, proven security, verifiable reputation. However, we are not tethered to the Ethereum network given our multi-layered architecture - meaning we can update the base technology over time without any changes for the user.
What if my computer is interrupted before adding data to my assets record?
If you have submitted the update, it will be processed in the background and will be visible after restoring your internet connection. If the process is interrupted before your browser sends the data to Geora, you must restore connection and begin entering the data again - any draft data will not be added to the record without submitting. If at any point two conflicting updates occur, then the updated that is entered into the API first will succeed and the other will fail.
How long does it take to start using and customising my Geora platform?
Geora’s workflow engine provides an interactive visual builder, so you can start mapping your supply chain straight away. The full power of the Geora developer API is available when you need it. Get started for free today.
What is blockchain technology?
Blockchain is a digital record of transactions that can enable more transparent and accurate end-to-end tracking in the supply chain. Organizations can digitize physical assets and create a decentralized immutable record of all transactions, making it possible to track assets from production to delivery or use by the end user. Historical data cannot be tampered with by users or Geora itself.
What is an asset lens?
An asset lens is a permissioned view that allows different stakeholders to see data on an asset record. For example, you may share permission with your consumers to scan a QR code on the product, which gives them a glimpse into certain parts of the asset’s history. This provenance story is verified through our immutable blockchain record, meaning stakeholders can trust that the information they are looking at is reputable. Likewise, if you are a grower, you can share certain parts of your asset record with a financier to increase your chances of receiving a loan for your harvest. An asset lens allows you to select information from the asset record to share with external stakeholders in a trustworthy and secure manner.
What is a certificate in the Geora platform?
Certificates on the Geora platform are similar in many ways to traditional certificates, such as an organic certification. However, these certificates are stored digitally in decentralised storage and signed with the issuer's identity, before being uploaded to smart contracts on our private Ethereum network. This means that they cannot be tampered with after uploading, and are linked to the reputation of the issuer. As your asset changes ownership and moves throughout the supply chain, these certificates stay attached to the digital asset record. Owners of the asset can choose to share a select view of the asset history, including selected certificates, with various stakeholders - such as end-of-chain consumers.
What is a digital asset record?
A digital asset record is a record of your agricultural asset’s life, stored and secured via our blockchain data network. For example, if your asset is barley, you may store data about this barley in the form of a digital asset record - including paddock, weight, batch ID and quality metrics. These data points may be shared for certification of your asset through our platform, and these certificates attached to your asset record throughout its supply chain. Additionally, you may store other information such as photos, transaction details, ownership history and more - creating a rich digital history of your asset. The benefit of creating a digital asset record via our blockchain infrastructure is that you are able to track, secure and finance your assets on a decentralised network that is third-party verified and, above all, secure.
What is a smart contract?
Smart contracts are self-executing transactions, written in computer code and performed automatically when predetermined conditions are satisfied between contracting parties. They reside on a specific address on the Ethereum blockchain. Using smart contracts to verify your digital asset’s attributes increases its value and stakeholder trust.
Are payments on Geora made in traditional currency (such as AUD or USD) or cryptocurrency?
Payments on Geora are made in traditional currencies and executed on our private Ethereum network. We take a 0.3% fee on each transaction.
