Valueflows specification

Scalable & distributed
framework for economic
network coordination

hREA (Holochain Resource-Event-Agent) is an implementation of the Valueflows specification. It enables a transparent and trusted account of resource and information flows between decentralized and independent agents, across and within ecosystems.

How it works

Superpowered coordination
through integration of
Holochain and REA grammars

Who is hREA for

hREA enables tracking & tracing
value flows for conventional
and alternative economies alike

Organizations and businesses with cross-stakeholder value chains (think supply chains, joint ventures, multi-company collaboration spaces, cooperative and small business economic networks, and more)

The parties involved in loosely coupled economic coordination (think open source projects, artistic collectives, eco villages, makerspaces, mutual credit & mutual aid networks, open value networks, DAOs, and more)

Roadmap

What’s been done

October 2018 - April 2022

  1. Led by pospi, hREA project started and was continued through ad hoc development.
  2. Around 70% towards the goal of usability of the API for developers accomplished (to be able to implement applications on top of API)

Current phase: first Major Milestone Release (MMR)

May 2022 - August 2022

  1. Led by Sprillow, our goal is to reach a 100% usable API (v1.0) for hREA.
  2. Basic UI for data visualization of the ledger

Beyond the current MMR

September 2022 onwards

  1. The first applications on top of hREA are built
  2. The API is improved based on feedback gathered
  3. The hREA’s Community of Practice is grown
  4. Sustainable funding patterns are built
