Fauna.Life is the first project in the world designed to establish an independent animal registry based on blockchain.
The blockchain technology is changing the world thanks to its features: the data entered in blockchain have the property of being unalterable over time, of having a certain date and an identifiable owner/author thanks to the use of advanced digital signature. These features make it ideal for the creation of shared public registers in which to notarize information for future use. All in full compliance with the GDPR.
Advantages of the dog registry in blockchain
The project aims to bring the dog registry and herd book into the blockchain era with significant benefits for animal welfare:
Unified registry office
at national and potentially international level: today many dog registry offices are divided in regional chapters and each region might keep his register in his own way, often difficult to compare with that of other regions or countries. […]
and adoptions between different regions or states with a potentially immediate update of data
ould be microchip-related, and the time to receive pedigree is drastically reduced. When a puppy is born from two individuals known to have a pedigree, its information can be updated in an extremely short time. And mongrels can have them too, finally
allows you to have the whole family tree of the dogs of which you have information: the paper pedigree allows you to go back up to 5 generations at most, but without having any further information about the ancestors. In blockchain there are no limits: all the genealogy remains recorded and all the data of individuals are accessible. […]
Every year about 200,000 dogs and about 8,000 cats are enrolled in the official registry by different associations that provide the pedigree. The herd books are property of these bodies and no one else can access the information unless specifically and formally requested. […]
The large amount of data recorded and linked together allows us to have a large database on which it is possible to make studies on the transmissibility of hereditary genetic diseases with greater accuracy and on a very large sample. […]
The access to health and insurance information or related documents is available 24/7 and can be accessed in seconds. This helps a lot when they need to be shown to the authorities for travel abroad […]
No more speculation
It is an efficient barrier against the trafficking of pets coming from puppy farms and the counterfeiting of pedigrees.
it creates an online medical record that can collect health information that the vet can update with the data of vaccinations, pathologies, examinations and therapies carried out
Any animal with a microchip-like tracking system can have the registry on blockchain in Fauna.Life.
The dog registry is not the only one that can be created. It is possible (and desirable) to extend the entire animal registry on blockchain technology. It is also possible to host the cat registry to counter the phenomenon of stray animals and to catalogue and study cat colonies.
A change is necessary. The blockchain gives us the possibility to do it in the best way: simple, effective, economic.
Who can enter data
each owner can enter the data of his pets
volunteers of animal shelters can enter the data of the animals housed in their facility
breeders can immediately insert new puppies as soon as they are born and chipped
vets may enter the animals they are taking care of directly or the newly adopted dogs
