Why choose honey?

If you’re looking for a way to sweeten up a treat or drink, honey is a clear winner when it comes to a less refined option with added health benefits, but both honey and sugar need to be consumed in moderation.

Let’s see a short comparison with the most used sweetener in the market:

 

sugar:

– is 50 percent fructose and 50 percent glucose;

– is higher on the glycemic index (GI) than honey, meaning it raises blood sugar levels more quickly;

– does not contain the enzymes that honey does, so is more difficult to digest;

– can spike blood glucose levels faster than honey. This leads to a quick spurt of energy, followed by a sharp decline characterized by tiredness, headaches, and concentrating difficulty;

– weight gain and obesity are associated with high sugar consumption, increasing the risk of illness. Dental caries develop faster and in more teeth with a high sugar diet;

– a high sugar diet is associated with less healthy and gut bacteria diversity. It may also increase the risk of chronic diseases;

– is addictive – it causes dopamine to be released in the part of the brain, where the addictive drugs are activated. This leads to cravings and can drive overeating.

 

honey:

– contains 40 percent fructose and 30 percent glucose. The rest of it consists of: water, pollen, minerals, including magnesium and potassium;

– because is lower in fructose and contains other trace minerals, it’s processed and absorbed more slowly by the body than refined sugar. This means longer-lasting energy and a slightly less of a spike in blood sugar, which is easier on your body and digestive system;

– a serving of honey contains small amounts of Vitamin C, Niacin (Vitamin B3), Folate and Vitamin B5, as well as calcium, potassium, zinc, selenium, iron, and manganese. Sugar offers nothing when it comes to extra nutrients;

– bees themselves have a serious array of beneficial bacteria within their own guts, and these probiotic bacteria can also be found in honey;

– studies have shown honey can fight a number of strains of bacteria and it also helps draw water out of tissue which can reduce swelling and discomfort if you have a sore throat. Refined sugar, on the other hand, is associated with increased inflammation which can cause infections to proliferate and last longer.

 

Honey may offer some health benefits and contains antioxidants and small amounts of vitamins and minerals, but still, it should be used wisely.

Our blog posts: https://apismellifera.io/blog/

Join us and let’s save some bees together while putting blockchain and crypto technology to real worldwide use.

What competition does APIS have?

None!

This is not a competition.

It is humanitarian, everybody can get involved. There are some bees adopting projects in the online world, not on blockchain sphere altho. And we think we can do way of a better job than any of these somehow similar operations with the one that we are building now.

 

No thinking of competition in adopting and saving bees.

 

No thinking of competition in applying blockchain to real use in our reality.

 

We NEED to do this.

 

Competition is with mother nature, we need to keep up with the changes, it is an imperative subject to consider for the perpetuation of our species.

 

Competition could exist between APIS Token and other tokens. Our leverage is our business. The token is one of its kind. It is a bees adoption token.

 

The technology we are using and developing, the hard working team and the phenomenal supporting community is our strength and source of energy. We are blessed to have all these supporters.

What role does the token have?

APIS Token is the functional link between crypto and blockchain community and the real operation of Adopting bees that is already taking place. Some of APIS’s targets are to develop better tools, conditions, and products from the bees.

 

The coin will give you access to managing platform, will be an exchange vehicle in our shop, will be the utillity key to other future products and services developend by APIS team. The shop and all the products coming from bees will be shared with our adopters, and also we’ll give them the possibility to create a 3rd level domain (on apismellifera.io).

 

In fact, these world-helping projects are too few!

We need to take action because if we also check the latest regulations from European Union and global institutions alike, the governments help us as much as they can on this task. So we just need to take action building natural, organic operations that impact the whole world in a win-win-win manner.

 

  Blockchain is a real plus for this operation for two reasons.

First, we are a team that is in the crypto community since many years ago. We’ve seen and experimented much of the thrills and sorrows of crypto-space carrousel.

APIS is a project that we decided to take real-world action with. Why? Because it is the best one we could think of, for implementing blockchain technology in order to help the real world, creating business chassis deployable almost instantly anywhere on the globe.

 

Second, it gives our communities, connections, and also new people the opportunity to easily support APIS beechain adoptions project in a proven economical mechanism that blockchain and Waves platform already provide.

APIS Bigges Challenges

What are the biggest challenges you expect to face and how do you plan to overcome these challenges?

The biggest challenges would be anything that threatens our bee families, either climate factors or chemical, biological factors. We are applying SWOT analysis on all the aspects of the micro business that will be modular and scalable.

In Romania, beekeeping, as a branch has as main objectives to increase the numbers of bee families AND a larger and diversified honey production.

To achieve these goals, besides the application of new and modern technologies of bees growth, a decisive role is to ensure and efficiently utilize all honey resources. The melliferous base of Romania totals an area of over 5 million hectares, of which 3 millions of hectares can be harvested by bees (60% forest species, 40% agricultural plants cultivated and spontaneous species). Because of the climatic/flora differences between the areas, there are 6 types of organic beekeeping areas.

Given the particularities outlined above, this resource must be treated differently from the other resources in terms of quantity, layout in time and space, structure and quality. In apiculture practice, knowing this information can occupy a decisive place because it influences directly the size and quantity of the production. The amount of honey that can be produced in one year of vegetation in Romania is 234522,48 t.

What purpose does the blockchain have in your project?

It is an asset-based token for real raw materials production – honey and others. The adoption plan will support the beekeeping process with the help of latest innovations available currently in the market and APIS will share the bee products for life as long as you freeze your tokens on the portal and therefore adopt hives and families of bees.

 

The already proven economics and financial mechanisms that blockchain facilitates make the whole process flow simpler and easier to implement.

 

To adopt a single hive one would need 30 000 APIS tokens.

The APIS token sale is currently live on Waves DEX exchange from 15th May to 15th June, and it can be purchased with different pairs of cryptocurrency(ex: BTC/APIS).

APIS tokens can also be traded on exchanges in any quantity if someone does not wish to adopt a hive or have less then 30 000 APIS tokens.

APIS Vision – Necessity of Green

Value creation is at the heart of any business model, as it can be one of the most important factors behind the viability of a new product, service or technology introduced to the market.

 

Eco-innovation aims to create both economic and environmental value, and business models act as a value driver and enabler of green technologies and solutions.

 

The focus on business models allows for a better understanding of how environmental value is captured, turned into profitable products and services, and delivers convenience and satisfaction to users.

 

Our “passive mining” system allows our supporters to manage a powerful mining mechanism (adopting a hive) that will be upgraded each year (natural development of bee families), offering the possibility of managing an eco-business in another part of the world.

 

APIS Token beechain Adoptions Project

 

The project operation is focused on bringing eco-value to the world, to everyone involved helping the project, to Waves Platform and to other platforms following.

 

Our vision is to create an adoption program that will generate eco-products, combining the transparency of the Waves financial mechanism, using the huge opportunity that Waves blockchain developed (replicating traditional trading infrastructures) with the necessity of “green” as a condition to create the eco-systems of the future.

 

For this to happen, we will bring together the idea of

  • passive mining (our “miners” will adopt bee families),
  • the necessity of saving the honeybees (adopting beehives using cryptocurrency system) and,
  • the growing demand for organic-eco products on the food market.

APIS Foundation

1. Art/Creation Department;
2. Eco-Lab (exploring the medicinal properties of Bee Products)
3. Innovation Department.

APIS Business  

1. Software Development Department (SDD)

 

Roadmap

  • website development: apismellifera.io;
  • develop Masternode Lottery website;
  • develop the shopping cart / 3rd level domain shop (possibility for our clients to have their personal honey webshop);
  • develop the Managing/Trading platform:
  1. alfa testing;
  2. basic functions (hive management / harvesting statistics);
  3. beta testing;
  4. all trading/storage/withdraw package, hive management;
  5. merge of different projects and create an interchange between them.

 

Platform

  • HIVES Management (Queen name, Hive name, voting different proposed strategies);
  • Stocks/Warehouse (different types of revenue in products from adopted families);
  • HIVES Market (interchange with the adoption Ownership of Hives/Parcels/Bee Products);
  • 3rd Level Shop (owner.apismellifera.io/shop/).

 

2. Business Development Department (BDD).

 

   Project development tasks are often correlated and usually progress simultaneously.

   Throughout the project’s developmental stages, there are several key decision points when modifications are made, and the decision to proceed further is re-assessed.

   Changes are common until financial closure is achieved. After this, the focus shifts to procuring the land, the boxes and the bee families, apiaries construction and commissioning the “initial Clusters” proposed within the projected schedule and budget.

 

   BDD’s role is to ensure the entire process is efficiently flowing, making decisions in real time, while each independent sub-group, function as independent business entities:

 

  • Operational Department

Sub-groups which will follow standard managerial directions combined with specific factors of the clusters’ area. The entire business model will be built from the ground up, each sub-group represents a brick on the foundation of this unique ecosystem.

 

An Apiary (100 hives) will be a micro-enterprise that will work independently.

A Cluster started with 6-7 apiaries (honeycomb core).

Together with our managerial team, the owners of hives adoption will choose the best way to develop their honeycomb structure for the next timeframe. Each cluster will have some particularities that will generate different products (polyflora honey or specific types of honey).

There will be a distribution mechanism in place in order to reward Beekeepers and Cluster Manager.

 

  • Logistics Department

This department will link the Operational module with the Storage module.

Its role is to support the Operational Department with any field issue, to organize the harvesting season with the Cluster Managers, to organize the delivery of the raw materials from the clusters to Storage Department. Also, this department will support the movements for the pastoral clusters.

 

  • Storage Department

Will handle the refining processes from raw materials until the final product is packed and stored in our warehouses, waiting for your requests.

 

  • Sales Department

Mainly online sales. Also developing the beechain network and easy acces to cryptocurrency markets. Easy acces to online store, growing community, growing help in promoting APIS operation.

 

APIS BEEchain business from a micro-enterprise perspective.

 

Our business model can be divided into various groups which in turn are further divided into smaller sub-groups.

Each sub-group serves a purpose to its corresponding group while at the same time all sub-groups function under the same management method.

Each sub-group presents different solutions and/or services for the adopter, however all sub-groups have a wide common denominator.

APIS Project explained in 60 seconds

Short explanation

 

 APIS Beechain: Adopting bees and developing a community project, a shop, a pool, an eco-lab.

APIS token is a beekeeping project start-up undertaken by a team of bee enthusiast individuals based in Romania. It was born from blockchain, crypto sphere community and it is promoted online for finding people interested to help the project. At the same time, it is a real growing operation happening in Romania(because of the virgin nature it is one of the best places in Europe for bees).  

 

  • APIS token allows you to adopt a hive of your own and manage it through the online portal. When you buy APIS token you will get your personal hive that is created by the APIS team with a new family of bees that you adopted,   and also you get honey from them for a lifetime.
  •  You can also customize your paint on the box of the hive, for example, you can have your or company’s name and logo on it.
  • CCTV cameras are being implemented soon which would allow adopters to watch their hive live at any point of the time.

 

In other words, APIS Token is functioning like any other cryptographic token out there in the ecosystem, AND also it links with APIS beechain Adoptions real-world operation.

For example, 30 000 APIS tokens would also bring you instantly

  • A hive and a bees family adopted
  • A kg of honey/month or, if you have more hives(10+ recommended) you get half of hive production/month(see distribution logistics in whitepaper)

 

When our bees managing platform is ready, you need to freeze the tokens for the hive adoption to be concretized. If you don’t, you can do whatever you’d like with the tokens and we will further keep the hive ourselves for the operation.

So, anyone that buy 30 000 APIS minimum, is actually remotely ordering the team to build another hive and fill it with adopted bees family and start taking care of them.

This is already happening since Pre-Sale for waves community started in 1st of May 2018.
