[SeekingFeedback]PoG - "Proof of Grow" with CryptoGrow + IoTeX

Proposal details

Project Name


Project Type

Integrate IoTeX, New IoT Devices

Proposal Description

CryptoGrow is a web3-native tech company pioneering a “Proof of Grow” model to disrupt emerging markets and bridge cutting-edge hardware with DeFi systems and the growing web3 ecosystem.

We’ve already raised over $1M through investments as well as the sale of our Genesis NFT, the “Burn NFT” which will be redeemed for our hardware in the near future.

Our R&D and IP development is completed

Bench audits, performed by independent experts, of the Cryptogrow ’s hardware / software have been completed with positive results and few required modifications.

We have a large, active community consisting of 16k organic followers on Twitter and 9k members within our Discord.

Our genesis product, the CryptoGrow Pod, is a web3-integrated cannabis growing machine that allows anyone to easily and affordably grow premium cannabis in their home.

The Pod automatically adjusts its internal ecosystem (lighting, temperature, humidity, hydration, airflow, etc.) to maximize the quality and quantity of your cannabis harvest.

What makes our ecosystem unique is that if you’d like to Grow, our Grow-To-Earn tokenomics system is designed to reward you with $HRVST tokens for your engagement!

The process is simple:

  1. Mint a “Burn NFT” which will be redeemed in about 6 months for a CryptoPod and a dynamic “Grow NFT” which will evolve alongside your actual grow using the data produced by IoTeX. This way our NFTs and the status of our users will be backed by hard, on-chain data.

  2. You will then order supplies from our web3-enabled eCommerce store with $HRVST tokens which will have come with your Grow NFT.

  3. Throughout your Grow, you will be rewarded with more $HRVST tokens as a form of “Proof of Growth” which, again, will be backed by the data recorded on-chain with IoTeX.

Our first NFT sale is live and continues to mint every day as users are keen on the product we are delivering. We are currently deployed on Ethereum Mainnet with intentions to deploy our complete token economy and subsequent NFTs on Polygon Mainnet whilst using IoTex as a back-end service for recording all data immutably.

We are seeking a grant and development resources from IoTex so that we may be a part of setting the standard for how Web3, MachineFi, and traditional business should be united using the right technology, such as IoTeX. Our aim is to help popularize IoTeX via our unique implementation and assist in ushering in a new wave of users while increasing the amount of existing machines on IoTeX by as much as 29%. We believe that by demonstrating how advanced web3 tech such as this can help traditional business models that more businesses will be inspired to build on IoTeX and with web3 tech.

Many users in crypto/web3 today are more technically-minded than the average, but we aim to democratize access to the power that web3 grants and we would be honored to work with IoTeX directly to manifest this goal.

We thank you for your consideration and look forward to hearing from the IoTeX community as well as answering any questions!

About your Team

Find all of our team members in the following section of our Gitbook.


We anticipate thousands of transactions per month and our initial batch of machines will consist of 100 machines to be delivered within the next 6 months or so. (Subject to change due to supply-chain instability. We will communicate any updates to our community.)

Just checked out your mint page, it does not even say how much an NFT costs.

How do I know how much of what I need to buy? Is it Eth? How much per NFT?

I like the concept, no one should be jailed for carrying for personal use.

Here in the capital of Australia they just legalised personal use amounts, people won’t be jailed for carrying small amounts.

Would growing a full sized plant count as personal use? Or does the law only address what you might be carrying? In New York City it hasn’t been legalized but there is virtually no enforcement of either selling or consuming on the streets. It’s pretty striking what a different legal climate it is now.
