Introduction Question Asked By BlockTalks
Q1. Could you please introduce 3WM to our community in layman’s term?
Ans — 3WM IS AN HYBRID SOLUTION BASED ON INNOVATIVE AND PATENTED TECH & BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY , OUR CONCEPT IS BASED ON TOW MAIN PARTS:
First part is ECO TECH CENTER, witch is a development hub dedicated to ecological Technologies. THESE PHYSICAL AND BIG platform gathers on the same site innovative and efficient companies and projects, specialized in the protection of the environment and in renewable energies. We already set up the first one in FRANCE and we are planning to have a site in different region worldwide. Every ECOTECH CENTER will be the referral site for the activities of 3WM Ecosystem in its region.
The second part is, The 3WM Platform, it is a blockchain based application, it hosts multiple services:
Marketplace of 3WM, including its subsidiaries and partners products or services.
- Wallet integration.
- Exchange Ecoactions with 3WM Tokens
- Ecoactions proposal
- 3WM Label
- Donations on 3WM Tokens for NGOs
Q2. What are the advantages of 3WM to other alternatives in the market?
Ans — We think that 3WM is the first global ecological token. We didn’t identify a competitor that would be focusing on development of similar Blockchain based ecosystem which address few major issues for environment. 3WM project has already started. Several aspects distinguish from its competition.
-We have an innovative approach based on fact that we are targeting 3 major interdependent environmental problems at once instead of focusing on just one product.
- Our target is not to promote one single technology but a global vertuous circle.
- We rely on unique proprietary patented technologies and high quality products and services, tested, made in France, Germany and Switzerland
- We rely on strong patented partnered technologies
- We rely on strong respected and award-winning partners unified under one banner.
Q3. What are the major milestones 3WM achieved so far & what are in future pipeline?
Ans — The founders of the group worked on the projects for 10 years in order to bring solutions for environmental problems beginning by waste management and following by water treatment and sustainable mobility. We decided design a 3WM Concept in order to put all our knowledge and expertise together in a global Ecosystem including patented and innovative Eco technologies , cryptocurrency, Ecological hubs, Blockchain based Platform etc.
Currently we have :
A portfolio of patented technologies
- We acquire a big site in FRANCE for our first ECO TECH CENTER (50 000 m² including 12 000 m² building)
- The site already includes a multitude of technologies (plastic to fuel, water treatment..etc)
- We have a strong team of experts on different fields
- We already developed the Blockchain 3WM solution with smart contract.
- We are preparing the first version of the Blockchain
- We acquire or shareholding on strategic companies
- We get a number of partners
In the future we are planning to
Empower the 3WM concept
- Build other ECO TECH CENTERS in Asia, middle east, Africa and South America
- Bring more innovative technologies to our ECOTECH CENTERS and marketplace
- Bring more strategic partners.
- Make the 3WM TOKEN stronger and be the reference in the field of ecology
- Create virtuous circle of incentivise
Question Asked on Twitter For 3WM!
Q1. You say that your revolutionary blockchain technologies decontaminate nature, and boost the local economy. How does the blockchain contribute to a healthier environment? How effective has your business model been?
Ans — We are creating a virtuous cycle based on incentivization of people and all environment actors and use of innovative patented technologies to urgent environmental challenges:
- Rewarding Ecological actions by 3WM TOKEN
- Bring Innovative technologies to the Global market
- We are also working on solutions to track waste.
Q2. As ambition is to revolutionize the way we manage waste and plastic, the way we treat water, the way we move, by creating the world’s largest network of bioenergy plants and the world’s first green intelligence network. What is your strategy to realize this ambition?
Ans — We have already built the foundations of our global network of ETCs (Eco TECH CENTERS) though all the work that we did during several years. We financed with own funds the development of our portfolio of innovative technologies and also by acquiring the first 3WM ECO TECH CENTER in EUROP.
We put already on the 3WM ECO TECH CENTER FRANCE different technologies:
First plastic to Fuel line
- Water treatment technologies
- Autarky energy
This first site is already running and will be completed by the end of the year.
We are planning to open the next site in another region of the world in 2021.
others will follow.
Q3. What are the ways that 3wmGroup generates profits/revenue to maintain your project and what is its revenue model ? How can it make benefit win-win to both invester and your project ?
Ans — 3WM Group have multiple activities:
Sale and/or rent/ technologies / Services / Energy
- Managing 3WM Platform with a big market place “ The super market of Cleantech”
- We are building turnkey Waste To Bio-Energy Plants, we are transforming 100% of waste info energy and valuable materials, example: we are transforming non valuable plastic wate intoe fuel with a cost of 0,27 € .
- We are building an ECO tech centers network, Owning or participation with partners in Eco tech Center (ETC)
- We are getting Participation in strategic partner companies or having joint venture with them and getting passive income
- Selling Exclusivity of our portfolio for different countries Worldwide
3WM offers the possibility to privileged investors to integrate the 3WM group through its subsidiaries “the Holding countries companies in Switzerland”:
- Investor and big influencers (families) in each country can have shareholding of these holding company
- 3WM supports these structures and investors by offering very attractive packages to boost business in the target country and have recurring and long-term profit and the creation of many jobs
- A country holding company has the exclusivity of all 3WM technologies, brands and patents, through its subsidiaries and partners with no time limit.
Q4. There have been lots of steps taken to Deal with Climate change,
What will be Unique in 3WM’s approach with BlockchainTechnology & Why to do Think that Tech/Non-Tech people will join this Platform?
Ans — I’m agree with you we saw a lot of tokens related to climate changes, I will not name them but as you know every one of these tokens have not gone beyond the project stage except one or two. the main problem was that these projects has not enough utility for the market, not enough users and supporters and finally not enough liquidity.
3WM brings together I the same ecosystem:
Efficient Solutions for big range of ecological problems => High number of users
- Physical hubs for the innovation => High number of supporters
- A reward for Ecological actions => High utility
- Product discount for products by using the 3WM Token => High liquidity
Q5. A huge number of experts say that after a certain number of years, the pollution of nature will reach a huge scale. In your opinion, which sector (water, air, etc..) is most vulnerable to the threat and why?
Ans — Sincerely I don’t think we can classify pollution problems
let just see numbers:
• 2.1 billion people do not have access to drinking water
• 8.3 billion tonnes of plastics produced worldwide each year and 91% of this plastic waste is not recycled!
• Air pollution kills an average of 8 million people a year
That’s why it was important for us to take the problem as a whole and in include all solution for an ecosystem dedicated to the environment with the first real Ecological token.

- Patented technologies acquisition
- Shareholding in innovative and strategic companies
- Acquisition of the first ECO TECH CENTER and development to fit it to the 3WM concept and its criteria
and also make these technologies and business profitable and this is the key behind all that.
The 3WM token was fully integrated into the 3WM concept, it builds on the architecture and the global vision of the 3WM group to gain value.
