ITADAKI-MASU Coin Project Introduction

Have you ever grown vegetables, or raised cows, pigs, and other livestock?
Currently, agriculture is facing two major problems that have a huge impact on our daily diets. Especially for those of us whose make a living in agricultural and dairy farming, these issues weigh heavily on our minds.

The two major problems we face are abandoned farmland and the decrease in farmers in Japan. These two issues are both closely related to our food supply. The "ITADAKI-MASU Coin Project" tackles these two issues by borrowing power to tackle issues that cannot be solved alone.

The Steady Increase of Abandoned Farmland

Abandoned farmland refers to infertile land where crops have not been planted for over a year, and have no plans to be used for planting in the future. Whether or not we realize it, the increase in abandoned farmland has a huge impact on our lives.

Farmland Regeneration and Investment

Funds will be used for the purchasing or long-term leasing of farmland. The money invested will be used for the restoration of farmland and for new agricultural solutions.       By using IMCOIN(ITM), farmers who participate in this program will be able to invest more efficiently than they would by using general currency.

The Decrease in Farmers

Due to the declining birthrate in Japan, more and more young people are moving away from the countryside, leaving farming to the older generation. With the lack of a generation to take over our current farmers, more farmland is being abandoned and the situation surrounding agriculture worsens even further.

Education for Human Resource Development in Agriculture

By creating schools for training human resources for agriculture, providing world-leading education, learning about industry-standard technology that can be used all over the world, and developing foundations that can be used by the latest technology, we can contribute to the regeneration of agriculture.

In September 2015, the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit was held in New York. Through the participation of more than 150 different member countries, the agenda "Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development" was adopted. This agenda is a plan of action for the people, our planet, and prosperity, also seeking to strengthen universal peace. These are the "Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)" which consist of 17 goals and 169 targets.

The "ITADAKI-MASU Coin Project" aims to tackle the issues of abandoned farmland and the decrease in farmers. By clearing these two major issues, this project will realize the SDG’s #2 & #8, and in turn will make it possible to clear SDG's #1, #7, #9, #12, #15, #16, and #17. Through this project, we also plan to strengthen the usage of the token economy as well as project management.

The Project’s Structure An Overview

      The "ITADAKI-MASU Coin Project" will address major agricultural issues from around the world and aim to establish a new global agricultural economic zone using "ITADAKI-MASU Coins"(ITM). This new agricultural economic zone will be called the "Farmers’ Ecosystem".

Creating a New World

What Does "ITADAKI-MASU" Mean? いただきます

The phrase "ITADAKI-MASU" is a Japanese phrase said before eating a meal. In English, it literally translates to "I am recieving (this meal)", and it is said to express one's gratefulness for the earth and life, as well as the effort put into producing the food about to be eaten. We want to spread this "ITADAKI-MASU" culture across the world and create a society that appreciates the earth and life, leading to more respect for the agriculture industry and those involved. Aiming to spread healthy eating habits and create a sustainable planet, we named this the "ITADAKI-MASU Coin Project".
