Dimitra 2022: Year in Review

Hello everyone,

I’d first like to thank the Dimitra community and all our investors for their support during 2022. As the saying goes, “This too shall pass,” and 2022’s macro-crypto conditions have been particularly challenging, with some very bad actors causing a lot of pain for the broader crypto industry. 2023 may be the year when regulatory frameworks finally manifest.

I’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our exchange partners, our esteemed extended network of partners, our internal teams: Marketing, Technology, Sales, Agronomists, Data Science, Dimitra Ambassadors, and all our external contractors. Without everyone’s hard work, we could not have accomplished so much in a short amount of time. We are much closer to helping larger numbers of farmers worldwide, improving sustainability, and addressing food insecurity. It’s important to zoom out and see what we’ve accomplished and not forget what the end goal is.

Since our community has asked, the Dimitra team is based around the world in 70 countries and is 125 strong. We have about 50 developers working at any one time and these numbers increase or decrease depending on client deliverables. Great platforms and solutions take time to build and implement. I sit in our weekly technology update meetings, and I’m always amazed at how many “commits” get accomplished week by week and how that is never-ending, as well as all the Q&A and testing.

Some of Dimitra’s Accomplishments in 2022

Dimitra won the W3B & Blockchain World 2022 Entrepreneurship Award in the Industry Solutions Category. This award recognizes start-up companies delivering innovative blockchain applications, protocols, or platforms that address blockchain implementation challenges in business, government, and nonprofit contexts. They shortlisted projects from all over the world as finalists and then selected Dimitra as the winner.

VC Funding

Dimitra received a $20 million capital commitment from GEM DIGITAL LIMITED to develop Dimitra’s platform further, increase user adoption and expand the utility of our ecosystem. Considering most funding dried up in 2022, this was a major feather in our cap and vote of confidence in what we are doing.
