A new blockchain effort launched by Project Newton aims to help combat animal poaching and protect the growing number of endangered species worldwide.
According to the Crypto Briefing website, the Newton Project has outlined a plan for a network of sensors and drones that can monitor endangered animals more efficiently than current monitoring systems, allowing better protection of wildlife.
"NewSensor NewSensor technology consists of small IoT devices for monitoring position, temperature, air quality, humidity, etc. And it loads this data into NewChain, Newton's blockchain" the company told Crypto Briefing. "By placing a NewSensor under the skin of an endangered mammal, such as a rhino or an elephant, we can trace the location and basic behavior of that animal. Many animals are social and follow a leader, so instead of labeling each individual, we can simply label individuals worthy of note. "
Newton launches its "NewDrones" equipped with cameras and microphones that can help locate and identify poachers. The poaching of wildlife, especially endangered species, is a big business in many countries of Africa and Asia.
"NewDrone footage will be uploaded to the NewChain for an indelible and incisive recording of potential poaching" says the company. "Using NewAI, this data can be analyzed and anything suspicious sent to local authorities."
The company says the new technology could also help conserve resources and prevent local authorities from spending a lot of time monitoring poachers or being at risk of gains from poachers.
"Local authorities are often ineffective – not because they are corrupt or indifferent, but because these parks are huge, and police budgets and parks are limited" Newton Project said. "Our solution reduces costs and manpower, making the police cheaper, easier and more transparent."
According to the "Poaching" website, the illegal trade in wild plants and animals has increased dramatically in recent years. It is estimated to be worth $ 70-213 billion in the year and "Violates the natural resources of the countries and the wealth of businesses all over the world" the site notes. "It is also contributing to the extinction of tigers, bears, elephants, rhinos and hundreds of other incredible species, while criminal organizations and rebel militias profit".
