“I think HARA interests me so much because the type of the application. I mean, it’s not that other applications are not useful or not good, but I think that being able to apply technology to the grass roots and also recognizing that these some of the groups that will probably have the most impact is actually very, very important. There will be lots of challenges but I think it’s a very exciting and promising project to work on,” — Dr Yos Ginting
It is this practical application of HARA and the blockchain technology it uses that excites Ginting the most about the project. According to him, we are now only seeing the tip of the iceberg in that respect. He is certain that once the tech is fully rolled out, we will be amazed by the creative ways in which people will make use of the technology to get the most out of it.
Ginting will assist in the growth of HARA with his expertise in outreach activities. As an advisor, he will mostly focus on helping build the HARA community and engage with blockchain and agriculture industry experts and business leaders.
“I hope I will be able to contribute from my past knowledge and experience in terms of working with farmers, and in terms of working and communicating with regulators. Because not only do we have to be able to find something that is useful, the sustainability of what we find is eventually also very important. And the regulatory office is a very important aspect in that as well.”
