Blockchain AgTech Innovators Dimitra Join ZenX Incubator
Decentralized agriculture start-up Dimitra is going to strengthen its position in the new-gen AgTech segment with the ZenX incubation program for decentralized finance protocols.
Unizen program ZenX welcomes Dimitra
According to the press release shared with U.Today, decentralized agriculture firm Dimitra has joined the cohort of residents of the ZenX CeDeFi incubator.
We are proud to be hosting @dimitratech team for an AMA.🟢 Date : 25th August, 11:00 AM MST🟢 Venue : https://t.co/Fx6J459WeBJoin us to explore how Dimitra is changing the landscape of Agtech with the help of blockchain pic.twitter.com/kV4VdVVVHe— Unizen: Smart Exchange Ecosystem (@unizen_io) August 23, 2021
This announcement is a crucial milestone for both projects. Dimitra's CEO, Jon Trask, stresses the importance of blockchain-based instruments for agriculture in various regions of the world:
Blockchain is being used very well from a track and trace perspective. To track from an organic farm and take those products and track them through the supply chain, it is becoming more and more important to the world.
ZenX is a CeDeFi incubation program by leading cryptocurrency trading platform Unizen Smart Exchange. It is set to nurture early-stage teams in the sphere of cryptocurrency, DeFi and Web3 technologies.
Unizen CEO Sean Noga is more than excited about both the mission of Dimitra and the vision of its team:
Our goal, as an incubator, is to provide the project with technical and legislative tools for revolutionizing agriculture and build a loyal community of contributors and supporters of Dimitra’s infrastructure and cause. For ZenX, it's an exciting challenge, great opportunity, and empowering responsibility - and we are looking forward to the journey.
