Changing the world, one drop at a time,
with a Blockchain-based solution to the world's water crisis
About Water to the World
Water to the World has prototyped a device,
to capture some of the water present in the air around us, and turn it into fresh water.
This will be accomplished through a durable, energy-efficient, solar power capable
smart machine, which can be easily deployed anywhere around the world.
By turning humidity into usable water,
Water to the World aims to create access to water, where it is most needed.
The purpose of this Initial Coin Offering (ICO) is to generate funding to complete a thorough Research and Development (R&D) effort to develop, test, and finalize a production prototype machine, capable of producing potable water from the humidity naturally in the air all around us.
The intent of the company developing this project, Water to the World (W2TW), is to provide a smart machine that can be employed anywhere around the world to produce water. The machine will be durable, rugged, reliable, non-polluting, energy-efficient, and solar-power capable. In addition, the machine will be tied into the Blockchain to record machine status and production parameters, and to report and create a record of meteorological data at the machine’s location.
There is an abundance of water on our planet, but most of it is in the oceans, in the polar ice caps, and in the atmosphere, and is not available to drink or use. Water to the World intends to capture some of the water that is present in the air. We are developing a system to efficiently turn humidity into usable, potable water where it is needed around the world – in developing nations, drought areas, disaster zones, and more.
“At any moment, the atmosphere contains an astounding 37.5 million billion gallons of water, in the invisible vapor phase. This is enough water to cover the entire surface of the Earth (land and ocean) with one inch of rain.” Water is always in a cycle of heating, cooling, evaporation and condensation, which results in weather. The cycle is endless and self-perpetuating, thanks to the sun, moon, and tides. So there is always an endless supply of water in the air, even in most of the very driest places on earth. There is always more than enough water present, we just cannot always drink it.
Some sources estimate over 1 billion people, or about one-sixth of the world’s population, do not have access to fresh water. The lack of access to fresh water has negatively affected education, sanitation, and health.
443 million school days are lost each year due to water-related diseases.
In developing countries, as much as 80% of illnesses are linked to poor water and sanitation conditions.
695 million, of a global 2.4 billion people living without improved sanitation facilities, live in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Exposure to unsafe drinking water, inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene is a leading cause of cholera, and a variety of infectious and tropical diseases in the African Region.
Half of the world’s hospital beds are filled with people suffering from a water-related disease.
Smart Machine Water Solution
Smart Machine Water Solution
A machine that pulls water from the air has been a long quest. There have been some successful systems, but they tend to be large, cumbersome, requiring high levels of energy, and high tech. We propose a new approach taking advantage of natural condensation processes to condense humidity from the air and capture it as usable, drinkable water.
Based on W2TW’s POC prototype testing, our team has developed a complete system design that will produce water based on the same natural processes and using minimal energy, but that will be more effective, efficient, and productive than the POC prototype. The patent pending system will be deployable almost anywhere in the world, using solar power when needed, or a power grid where available, and will report its status, conditions, and production to the Blockchain.
The system will be engineered to be as simple and durable as possible to withstand the rigors of independent operation in harsh environments around the world for long periods. The machine will also be designed for simplicity of operation, so it can be used by anyone – no technology skills required.
The basic product is envisioned as a portable, self-contained, energy-efficient, reliable smart machine to efficiently extract and supply fresh water from the humidity in the air. The machine will be solar powered when needed, and would be usable in nearly any environment. The concept is scalable for machines from family size to village size to city size, as needed to meet the need. The system will self-monitor and report atmospheric conditions, system status, and any maintenance alerts by utilizing the IOTA Blockchain protocol.
Our intention is to first develop the most basic planned version, The Talaya 80. This patent-pending system will provide the basic daily fresh water needs for a family of four – 80 liters – for drinking, sanitation, and food preparation. This unit will be person-portable and allow rapid setup.
As funding allows, we will also develop a larger unit to provide the water needs for a group of families, or a village. A larger unit has different challenges, but must still be solar powered, rugged, and easily transportable. It also must produce, collect, and store a larger volume of water that is easily dispensed to the user. Such a unit would be useful as an emergency water supply following natural disasters, as a means to replace a well or an unreliable municipal water supply, as a shipboard water supply, and more.
Depending on funding, W2TW also endeavors to prototype a municipal-size unit that can be incorporated into a city’s existing water system. This would be a fixed installation system feeding its production directly to a city water supply, augmenting their existing water sources – wells, rivers, desalination, etc. Each installation could be optimized for the individual location to maximize water production. This would be a boon to areas short on water resources but with plentiful humidity, such as coastal areas, remote cities, or deserts with high overnight humidity.
Being simple to operate does not mean that a device is low tech. To maximize the availability of system information in a distributed ledger technology, each unit will self-report:
• System status
• System status change
• Predictive repairs or maintenance required
• Water Production rate
• Water collection in previous 12/24 hours
• Water dispensed from unit
• Atmospheric conditions– temperature, humidity, pressure, other pertinent data
IOTA Blockchain Protocol Solution
For the first time ever, true micro- and even nano-transactions are enabled due to the unique IOTA Tangle architecture.
Core feature of IOTA is the ability to transfer data through the Tangle.
Although IOTA is uniquely suited for the Internet-of-Things, the Tangle enables a variety of different use cases that involve secure data transmission, especially for eGovernance.
As the first extensible module of the IOTA core, Masked Authenticated Messaging (MAM) enables nodes to exchange data through the Tangle.
Everything as a Service
While the whole world has adopted the ‘Sharing Economy’ in areas like driving and accommodation, IOTA enables a whole new realm where anything with a chip in it can be leased in real time.
The distributed ledger revolution has only barely begun, the vast majority of use-cases has not even been thought of yet, and with the next generation ledger that IOTA created.
