Our team had a chance to get into an exclusive interview with Mr. Diego Freitas, CEO of Silvano, It’s one of a kind project available in market today.
Let’s take a look what he has to say about the project and the technology behind it.
Q. Please introduce yourself?
I’m Diego, CEO of Silvano, a Software engineer with more than 10 years of experience in the field.
Q. What is Silvano?
It is a startup focused on monitoring and measuring the livestock weight in motion, without stopping/stressing the cattle.
Q. Can you briefly explain the technology behind Silvano ?
Solar energy is responsible for providing electricity to the Silvano system. Silvano is designed to consume electricity only when it is necessary; there are sensors to wake up the system to avoid wasting electricity. Radio frequêncy Identification (RFID) to identify the animals, combined with the smart scale walkover weight platform. A powerful and own management mechanism of communication proof off fails, protected by backups and with high security protection. To help farmers to make decisions, a great software app designed to identify animals fastly, showing the total cattle weight and possibilities to identify in your hand the weight evolution (average daily gain).
Q. How can cattle farmers benefit from Silvano? And how does it aid in reducing deforestation?
The biggest benefit is the possibility of the animal dailying monitoring when it comes to eating salt, or special supplements or drinking water. In livestock there are three important things to do: Beware of the land and pasture, clean water, and management and monitoring. To understand how the two things are successful you need to measure the cattle, and the best way to do that is using Silvano technologies.
If you have good management monitoring you can know how many unit bull production you have in a few land areas. If you are not monitoring your livestock you have to have big areas to raise animals, and consequently you have to destroy the forest.
Q. Please briefly explain the tokenomics of the project?
Our token has a max supply of 10 million and Buy back/burn program the main benefit to our token holder is a share of our future revenue according to our financing agreement that can be found in our web site.
Q. Is the project running right on time with the roadmap? What is your next planned event?
No, we are late. That’s why we need to raise funds and recently many business opportunities were unveiled showing to us that we underestimated the potential of our product. We are entering in an gigantic unexplored market with huge lack of technologies that can solve its problems
Q. Does the team have previous experience in this industry?
Yes, Fernando Supi, our COO, grew on the farm until he was twelve years old, today he is a livestock investor with his brother in law, and he is helping the Silvano to attend their pains. Fernando sees that the unique way to improve their management and profit is monitoring and measuring daily livestocks units kilos. Without this information there is no reason to continue investing in the farm, because the profitability is very low, and the costs are very high. So as soon as it is possible to identify the thief bulls, sooner you can make the best decision to sell or medicate the cattle, or improve the supplementation, etc.
Q. What are some of your key partnerships that have proven to be a game-changer for your project?
When the silvano.io team made a business meeting with a big player marketing in Brazil, he said to the Silvano’s team that he would like to know if it was possible to deliver 3.000 (three thousand units).
Q. What are the plans for the token sale?
Improve weight measurement accuracy. Improve the hardware and software in general, Build a strong team of programmers, Electrical Engineer, Mechanical Engineer, Web Developer, Mobile Developer. Planning and making a process of mass production to deliver our product.
Q. What are the platforms you have chosen for the token sale of Silvano?
Currently we are running the IEO on https://p2pb2b.io/token-sale/374/
Q. Any message for our readers?
The world’s population continues to grow, and with more people in the world, the search for food also increases. It’s no different with animal protein, so the sooner we create solutions that increase productivity without destroying the environment.
