Teaser of the company

Comunitaria works to make communities more prosperous and economically sovereign by promoting the local economy with social currencies.

Comunitaria will test and validate the following blockchain-based solution in the scope of BlockStart:

Buying fresh food in deprived neighborhoods by using solar energy from their rooftops

Breaking the “poverty circle” by Investing in deprived neighborhoods is profitable for Venture Capital, but it’s very difficult to find projects in those areas. Comunitaria is already improving the local commerce wit a local social cryptocurrency, and now we’re extending our reach, for this purpose:

We’ll install solar panels on rooftops in “Los Pajaritos” neighborhood in Seville (one of poorest in Europe) so that the sale of the electricity obtained allows the purchase of local fresh food, helping reduce malnutrition and the local commerce to flourish.

For the purchase of these fresh products, families would use our  local social cryptocurrency that we’ve already in circulation in this neighborhood.

Estimated ROI is 10% from solar power sales + 10 % for commerce fee transactions  = 20%
