Indigen is a blockchain project designed to preserve indigenous cultures and languages; to protect the identities, rights and properties, and to uplift lives of the poor indigenous people.

THE CURRENT SITUATION

Let’s face it, native cultures are slowly fading away because of fast-paced modernization and industrialization.

Languages being forgotten, customs and traditions becoming merely part of history, beliefs and practices of the first people slowly disappearing due to lack of interest from younger generations.

On top of that, countless crimes committed against our poor indigenous people such as land grabbing, rape and murder, and lack of financial, medical and educational support from governments.

OUR PROPOSED SOLUTION 

What if we can change all that, using the latest technology that appeals to the younger generations, which in turn can bring back their interest and reverse the deadly effect of modernization on their very own unique and endangered identities?

Welcome to Indigen Foundation

The very first cryptocurrency and blockchain project designed specifically to uplift the lives of the poor indigenous people, for the preservation of their cultures, and to revive their slowly vanishing identities.

Our vision is very clear, our mission is grand. But without the full support and participation directly from the indigenous population themselves, no one is going anywhere from this very same situation.

That is why we are pursuing a different kind of approach using blockchain that promises a breakthrough and disruptive technology, and offers the most secured, inalterable yet traceable, and decentralized data storage for protecting the identities and properties of the indigenous people.

We at Indigen believe that in order to preserve native cultures and traditions, we must first preserve their languages. That is why this 2019, to coincide with the declaration by the UN as International Year of Indigenous Languages (iyil2019.org), we have started working on a project which involves research and collection of indigenous languages to help revive and preserve various native dialects.

The project is called B.U.I.L.D. which is an acronym for Blockchain Unabridged Indigenous Language Database since we are using distributed ledger technology (DLT) as the repository of data due to the decentralized and immutable nature of blockchain and the ability to time stamp information and to keep track of historical records.

Many think that blockchain is just a hyped promise, with no real impact to our society. We want to prove them wrong, through our series of blockchain projects that will impact both the social and economic aspects of the lives of the indigenous people.

Just like most of the blockchain projects currently, we too came up with our own utility coin to incentivize active participants who will contribute in the research and compilation of the many (and mostly forgotten) languages of the native people. We hope to entice all individuals such as students, teachers and even community elders to make our project a reality by sharing their time and knowledge in the pursuit of our objectives.

The role of our utility coin is to be the primary mode of incentives for individuals whenever they contribute to our collection of native languages, and other activities that will encourage them to actively participate. Likewise, for our partner merchants and institutions, they will need our coin to tap into our database for promoting their services and/or to give donations to whichever indigenous groups they want to support.

Artificial Intelligence Will Play a Key Role

Furthermore, once the data have been recorded on the blockchain, we will apply A.I. or machine learning technologies to allow real-time translations between native languages or tribal dialects. This way, we hope to bridge the gap between various tribes and eliminate the thought of cultural differences and language barriers.

INDIGEN

BUILD is Just the Beginning

For a user to be able to input an entry into the database of indigenous languages, and for a user to upvote an entry, one must be registered and confirmed of their personal identity. This will ensure that all who participate are verifiable human beings and not bots that are simply spamming the system.

This leads us to another potential blockchain project: Digital Identity.

One of the major problems in most of the impoverished nations, especially among the native populations, is lack of proper identification systems which if solved, will have beneficial effects to both the person that needs to be identified and the party that needs to identify a certain person. In cases such as aid provision, loan application and various governmental services, a secure and trustworthy identification process of the beneficiary is very crucial in order to efficiently, cost-effectively, and securely deliver the necessary services or grant to a recipient. So a blockchain-based digital identity system will have huge impact on a global perspective.

From this alone, many other blockchain-based innovative projects can be developed, including an immutable registry of properties to protect the indigenous people from land grabbing by the rich, powerful and corrupt government officials; efficient supply chain management of indigenous products from the farmers to the consumers; fraud-free voting system and more.

There is so much more that needs to be written about this project on a technical level, so we will write the complete specifications on a separate article and they will be made available in progressive phases on our web site. But in summary, our ecosystem will be powered by Indigen coin and all token holders will own a share of the profits that will be generated.

Native languages are slowly being forgotten by younger generations due to fast-paced modernization. Once we start forgetting our native tongue, we will also start to forget our traditions, arts, and history. Through BUILD, we hope to gain back the interest of the younger generations and help preserve their unique identity. Your invaluable support can take us a long, long way.

Indigen Token

To enable us to secure the needed funding for this huge project, we created a token on the Ethereum platform called Indigen ST (IDGT) and launched a token sale or ICO which started on January 1, 2019.

Indigen ST (Symbol: IDGT) is an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum blockchain that will reward its holders of the required amount of IDGT with dividends from our future projects, paid out in ETH using a Smart Contract.

IDGT will be minted as needed, but the maximum supply that will ever be minted is 100,000,000 IDGT only wherein each 1,000,000 IDGT represents 1% of the full shares. Starting 1st January 2019, we offered to sell at tiered pricing up to 40,000,000 IDGT or an equivalent of 40% shares.

TOKEN SALE

  • Initial pricing set for the first 10,000,000 IDGT is at $0.02 : 1 IDGT
  • New Year Bonus on January 1 – 6, 2019 @ 1 ETH = 19,000 IDGT
  • Pre-sale starts January 7, 2019 @ 1 ETH = 10,000 IDGT
  • Token Sale starts February 1 to June 30, 2019 @ 1 ETH = 7,000 IDGT

Published

on

Horizon Africa

DAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania, April 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Belfrics Group, one of the largest international blockchain conglomerates of the world, in association with Dar Es Salaam Institute of Technology (DIT), one of the leading technology and engineering institutes in Tanzania and the East African region, today announced a joint initiative to develop a pool of talented and skilled technology professionals for blockchain as a domain. Belfrics Academy SDN BHD, the research, international training and skill development vertical of Belfrics Group of Companies, would lead the efforts to address the knowledge gap and the rapidly growing requirements Blockchain Talents in the industry.

BelfricsOn this momentous association, Mr. Praveenkumar Vijayakumar, Founder and CEO — Belfrics Group of Companies said“We all know that the Internet is filled with the so many online courses on Blockchain technology. But the sad reality is that the quality of talent and knowledge that is out there, is not even close to what the industry needs. There is still a humungous knowledge gap, and a huge void in terms of the quality and quantity of blockchain talent in the market. This is not only an Africa problem; this is a world problem! And we are happy to have associated with an esteemed institute like DIT which is synonymous with technology as an industry.”

DIT, being one of the leaders in the space of capacity building for the latest technologies in the industry, keenly believes blockchain to be the next big wave in the digital transformation of the world, and especially, Africa. Similarly, Belfrics Group of companies has been one of the leading conglomerates spearheading the blockchain movement across the globe. With its presence in Asia Africa Middle East and South America regions, Belfrics is one of the few global companies to have worked with government bodies, financial regulators, and conglomerates for a blockchain-ready infrastructure.

We are pleased to see educational leaders like DIT come forward and being open to the need of the industry. I would say, that this is the right time, between being proactive or before being reactive to the industry demands. Employment and development is Key, and for that we must understand where the future is. DIT is doing just that. In fact, we’re pleasantly surprised to see the level of awareness and requests from other prestigious institutes from the East African Region for blockchain skill development. Since we are one of the major blockchain talent hirers ourselves, we are very much aware of the quality and quantity of the talent available currently. Such collaborations are required to address the current gap,” says E C Uday Senan, Global Strategist — Belfrics Academy.

Blockchain technology is among the emerging technologies that will soon revolutionize the internet and the ICT industry. Due to its inherent features, such as distributed system with no single point of failure, usage of cryptography for data protection, and fast data transfer and sharing of digital assets, Blockchain has huge potential and a number of applications, particularly in developing countries. To leverage the potentials of this technology, it is critically important we create awareness of the technology as well as build the capacity of our students, staff and the general public. This is exact what DIT will do in collaboration with Belfrics. This will enable DIT to become the hub of blockchain technology, the hub where capacity building of our people as well as experimentation and eventually development of the blockchain systems for improving government service delivery will take place,” says Dr Joseph W. Matiko, the Director of ICT Centre at Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology.

“DIT is positioned to support the industrial economy by creating skilled workforce for the nation. Therefore, collaboration between DIT and Belfrics is important for capacity building of our students and staff and creating the digital skilled workforce in the country. We are really pleased to establish this collaboration because it is in line with our strategies of teaching factory concept and engagement of the industry in teaching and learning activities,” says Prof Preksedis M. Ndomba, Principal of the Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology.

“We are excited to partner with Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology (DIT) on the launch of Blockchain Trainings for Corporates, DIT Students and Staff Members and the Tanzania Community at large. Blockchain Technology ensures digital skills are accessible to Tanzanians particularly youth and supports with securing meaningful opportunities where they can apply their talents, ideas and expertise to advance the Country’s economic, Industrialization and social development,” said Aziz ChonyaDirector, Belfrics Tanzania.

The collaboration between DIT and Belfrics comes in at a very crucial stage, with Africa being closely eyed as the next talent-hub by the world. With blockchain strongly anticipated to be the driver for the next stream of technological innovations, African countries “stand to benefit from this shift more than other nations because most of Africa has a Greenfield in banking, finance, health and other legacy infrastructure. Africa has a unique opportunity to leapfrog in many areas and develop new infrastructure and use cases to power the future” according to an article on medium.

Belfrics Academy, the international research and skill-development vertical of Belfrics, is dedicated to customized blockchain training for Universities, Colleges and training institutes, and capacity building for Government bodies, Regulators and Private Organizations. Belfrics Academy also mentors and nurtures Blockchain talents by setting up Innovation-hubs within the University campuses to drive and mentor more blockchain talent and ideas.

Belfrics is one among the very few companies who have developed and built their own blockchain, ‘Belrium’, which is now live and deployed, and which is being seriously considered as the technology carrier by many government bodies and conglomerates for solutions from identity data harmonization, to supply chain infrastructure, to smart governance infrastructure to healthcare infrastructure, around the globe.

DIT and Belfrics Academy, through this collaboration, aim at nurturing as much talent as possible in the academic year of 2019, as the demand is rapidly increasing, thus resulting in employment of young Africans in this technology space.
