Scalable & distributed
framework for economic
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
through integration of
Holochain and REA grammars
Simple, composable, and modular economic building blocks
Mix and match the building blocks of hREA's economic kit into something tailored to your needs, minimizing technical overhead.
Economic coordination on Distributed Ledger Technology
Multiple secure network spaces can exist simultaneously and scale to any size, enabling you to strike the perfect balance between data privacy and data commons. Participant relationships form the connections between networks, just like in the real world.
Bring-your-own-user-interface with hREA's Valueflows API
Get an entire backend system out-of-the-box and leverage powerful general-purpose economic planning & accounting tools. Build the tailor-made user interfaces that your scenario needs with our extensively documented APIs and frontend libraries.
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)
“Seed” & “Sprout” Stage
October 2018 - April 2022
- Led by pospi, hREA project started and was continued through ad hoc development.
- Around 70% towards the goal of usability of the API for developers accomplished (to be able to implement applications on top of API).
First Major Milestone Release (“Sapling”) Development
May 2022 - September 2022
- Led by Sprillow, we reached a fully usable API (v0.1.0-beta) for hREA.
- Launched accompanying documentation at docs.hrea.io.
Post-“Sapling Release” Stage
October 2022 onwards
- The first applications on top of hREA are being built
- Feedback on the API and documentation is being gathered
- The hREA's Community of Practice is being grown
- Sustainable funding patterns are being built
