6,000 Children Die Every Day From Unsafe Water

For generations, we have abused our most precious resource: water. As a result, more people die from unsafe water annually than from all forms of violence, including war. We are in a water crisis. We need a breakthrough solution.

80% of the world’s waste water goes untreated

"America is facing a crisis over its crumbling water infrastructure, and fixing it will be a monumental and expensive task."

4% annual growth in the water industry is too slow

4% annual growth in the water industry is too slow

Because of our broken infrastructure, commercial water users are being forced to outsource their water treatment. While the technology exists to purify much more water, only one country in the world recycles 80% of its waste water and the US recycles only 1%.

The water industry is overly complex

The water industry is overly complex

To build a water treatment plant for a commercial user, water service providers need to compete for contracts, raise capital, and license water treatment technology. Once a plant is built, then they must manage a complex arrangement of performance, billing, and payments.

Water technology providers struggle to get paid

Water technology providers struggle to get paid

When a company licenses their technology to a water treatment facility, they must trust their customer to both report on the usage of the technology and then pay them accordingly. Accurate reporting and payments are often delayed.

Financers must take capital risks

Financers must take capital risks

Limited investment access to clean water projects

The water industry is a small ecosystem, and there is little opportunity or incentive for outside people to invest in funding clean water projects that are both good for the global water supply and can return on investment.

Water and Blockchain

With blockchain, we can clean more water and create an opportunity for anyone in the world to build their own portfolio of projects for a share of the profits. We won’t have to ask permission; we will choose the best projects using the power of "people investing".

Blockchain

Blockchain

With blockchain and distributed ledger technology, we can open up the funding process for water treatment and create smarter, more effective water treatment facilities.

Smart Contracts

Smart Contracts

With smart contracts, investors can easily select water projects and share in the profits. We can also use smart contracts to roll out water projects faster.

Token

Tokenomics

By deploying token capital we can fund the best technologies and service companies to radically transform the pace of water treatment and recycling in the world.
