Due to its ability to provide an auditable ledger, Blockchain technology has the potential to create a more consistent and transparent real-time view of the agricultural industry in Africa.  Improved transparency is a key element in solving some of the significant problems in the agricultural industry in West Africa.  For example, it may enable a better forecast of the supply/demand of commodities and potentially provide data necessary to support investor confidence and attract foreign investment.

The private beta moves GAEX into a new phase as its sets its course to be a transformative player in the industry.
