Lets take an example of Kenyan Shillings where 1 KSH is worth almost 1 US Cent (1/100th of a dollar), or example of Indian Ruppee where 1 INR is worht alomost 1.4 US Cent (1/75th of a dollar).
Thus price of seeds should be such that for 1 INR or 1 KSH they should get atleast 1 to 3 seeds, which can be achieved by pricing seeds at 180 seeds for 1 USD.
Fiat is available and in circulation in Kenyan context, but not if 100 fiat can only get them 1 unit of digital currency. Instead it would be ideal, if our peers from global south, could find parity in holding Seeds vs KSH (or INR), allowing simpler dealings / accounting / transactions / exchanges on the ground.
We currently have a sizable group (200+) on the ground hailing from one region in Kenya. Where such an experiment could be rolled out along with DHO formation. This shall offer considerable learning lessons for other places.
Ideal future of seeds ecosystem is the one where seeds purchase are happening peer to peer and on the ground, though there would be certain individuals (agents!) who would be buying the seeds directly from Issuance Sales (requiring tech skills, bank accounts, ability to use Paypal etc).
Currently, tech offers capability of tracking the buyers of seeds from join.seeds (though not sure if there is a spreadsheet for the same). Thus the buyer from a certain geography has access to seed from certain liquity pool only.
Though there could be folks who could be buying from say inexpensive liquidity pool (catered at lower inflation and targeted for global south) to be passed onto someone in global north. Such a transaction actually serves following purpose, bringing resources from a resource rich environment to a poorer one, thus acting as a hedge and a positive bias built in the system to fund regeneration in global south.
Take example from Financial Projection spreadsheet shared above, where 6% inflation liquidity pool of global north, makes seeds expensive very fast, unless folks from global north have relationships with folks from global south to buy seeds or offer their services in return for seeds. Thereby encouraging relational wealth from accuring, considering the biggest divide we have is of Knowledge, Information and Skills between global North and South.
