Money laundering has a staggering impact on the global economy – estimated to be worth around $2 trillion, anywhere between 2 and 5% of the world’s GDP is lost due to money laundering. Anti-money laundering (AML) solutions and regulatory policies in place are unable to seize most of the illicit financial transactions taking place around the world – only about 1% of the amount is seized by the authorities.
Despite countries and financial institutions worldwide spending over $8 billion on AML compliance in 2017, it is
not possible to enforce policies effectively enough to plug holes in global financial systems. Rapid advancements
in technology make it even more challenging for existing AML solutions to fight against the rising incidence of
money laundering. Aging and traditional solutions are no longer enough – not only are they ineffective in countering
money laundering in present day, but will also be insufficient to tackle the problem in the future.
A new approach offers an elegant solution.
An AML solution built on the blockchain can leverage its features of decentralized, cryptographically secure and immutable logs to identify and stop suspicious transactions effectively. ‘Smart contracts’ can be inbuilt into a distributed blockchain-based solution, which can be used by financial institutions to securely parse data through an AML engine. The automation of this process not only improves overall efficiency but reduces the likelihood of missing/ignoring suspicious transactions.
Each financial institution that would be a member of such a system can serve as a node within the private permissioned
blockchain network. These nodes will then have access to the network directory and can also use the smart contracts
feature to record transactions on the blockchain.
Regulatory authorities, risk officers, auditors and other relevant stakeholders too can use such a blockchain-based AML solution to monitor complex transactions in an automated and effective manner. The immutable nature of the blockchain makes it impossible for criminals to tamper with the logs, so the audit trails of suspicious transactions too can be recorded and maintained in a secure manner.

Block Armour’s solution ring fences the most critical servers and assets of an organization using a Software defined perimeter
(designed and used by the US department of defense) powered by blockchain technology rendering them invisible
and impenetrable for hackers. This Blockchain Defined Perimeter (BDP) not only provides cryptographically secure
access for users to critical resources, but also maintains immutable logs of each and every transaction taking
place within this network.
Such an architecture cannot be hacked as it cannot be seen by external hackers, and any suspicious activity by insiders or permitted devices will be immutably logged and stored in the blockchain-based solution’s records.
More importantly, the solution not only secures the server but also provides end to end security by enhancing the user authentication and encrypting the communication between the user and server, delivering a truly holistic cybersecurity solution to protect your systems from next-gen threats.

To be able to survive and thrive, especially in Africa, farms must exploit the true potential of the rich, fertile and virgin soils. They need to produce as much per acre as they can by using best practices in sustainable farming, effectively monitoring and reducing the risk of crop failure, minimizing operating costs, efficiently tapping and serving the broader global markets with a high-quality produce, and getting the true and fair value for their produce.
This requires, among other things, effectively managing asset and input resources like Land, Water, Fertilizers, Pesticides, Seed/Sapling quality and minimizing the impact of unpredictable variables (such as the weather and pests). However, achieving that objective is far from easy.
Conventional methods like physical crop inspection are time-consuming and can be inaccurate, while fixed and tractor-mounted sensors alone can’t provide a real-time picture of what’s happening in the field. Farmers/Farming companies face further challenges in translating this data into operational insights that can help them understand which actions to take, when and where. This is where there is a Comprehensive Farm Monitoring/Management system can help.
By generating detailed insights into the farm operations and the environment, a robust and integrated Farm Management System assists farmers in making data-driven operational decisions to optimize yield and boost revenue while minimizing expenses, chances of crop failure and adverse environmental impact. Depending on the type of crop, this solution can help increase overall profitability per acre.
A "Precision Farming" revolution is already underway in the field of farming. Due to the advancements in technologies like Geographic Information Systems (GIS) & Internet of Things (IoT), seemingly diverse universes such as a farmland and software can be brought together for precision farming. When it comes to farming, yield, productivity and cost of cultivation are as optimised as the decision a farmer can make with a given set of data from the field.
“With direct access to vital parameters of farmland & by generating detailed insights, farming company can make real time data-driven operational decisions that will optimize yield and boost revenue while minimizing expenses and the chances of crop failure”
The Precision farming vision sets out how IoT Based Farm Management may directly or indirectly enable farmers to optimize,increase agility and responsiveness, reduce operational costs and improve asset & produce reliability.

A smart city is an urban area that uses different types of electronic data collection sensors to supply information which is used to manage assets and resources efficiently. This includes data collected from citizens, devices, and assets that is processed and analyzed to monitor and manage traffic and transportation systems, power plants, water supply networks, waste management, law enforcement, information systems, schools, libraries, hospitals, and other community services.
A smart city enabled with Internet of Things (IoT) sensor networks and powerful spatial tools and technologies like the Geographic Information System (GIS) and GPS enables smart and efficient use of resources by utilising them only when necessary, building and empowering systems that save time, energy, and money, and improve the overall quality of life. This in its true sense unleashes the real potential and value of going "Smart" .
Powered by its global & uniquely skilled partner network and backed by their cumulative experience in implementing these technologies across various developed and emerging geographies, Afriplains Digital is able to bring this powerful combination of technologies together, in a modular, seamless, integrated and business-process driven workflow, to address some of the teething problems that our thinly-stretched cities in Africa are facing today.
