Solluna Mushroom Farms is a farm-to-table business that is adopting Algorand’s blockchain technology to educate/onboard mushroom growers and buyers.
We aim to achieve this by implementing the following key features to our business plan: (1) an ASA (Algorand Standard Asset) rewards only program for our customers and supporters, (2) an NFT based grow kit and farming course, and (3) an innovative regenerative sustainablity mushroom farm. We are requesting funding in order to execute these key features.


Sean Deegan - Mycologist, Solluna168, AKA StinkyBird, Algonaut’s MOD

I have experience working in a variety of areas but am the head mycologist of this project. I am or have been in the past a Permaculture Certificate Holder, Level 2 Direct Support Professional, CDL Driver, Wireline Operator 3, Crane Operator, Crew Leader/Pile Operator, Sea Kayak Tour Guide, Alligator Trainer/Handler, Turtle Farm Caretaker, Contractor, Backup Battery Tech specializing in cell towers, Wilderness Survival Expert and Bartender. I am mechanically inclined, hardworking, and hold strong leadership skills. I have a passion for mushrooms and feel they have a lot to offer humanity. Managing my own farm and building my own team has always been a dream I have been working towards! I’ve encountered everything from running massive pillars, to battling alligators, to wiring explosives. Using Algorands technology, with my past work experiences, will create a fun learning enviroment for crypto and fungi. I have been a Sea Kayak Tour Leader for an extended period of time and plan to offer stand-up paddle board classes for mushroom identification. I’ve been guiding groups of up to 14 individuals for five years. Attending a Wilderness Survival College taught me how to live off the land, so all of my prior experiences are coming together under one roof.

  • Swapping asas
  • Connecting to dapps
  • NFT artist
  • Running Nodes
  • Dapp development

Present Proposal


The farm will incorporate the SPORE token into the business model by giving holders discounts on our products. SPORE will be sent to clients that participate in our discord and Texas holdem poker tournaments.


We plan on creating mushroom grow kits with NFTs associated to each type of kit. These NFTs will have information about the fungus, a spore print, how to grow and take care of your new fungus.

Mushroom Courses

Our courses will assist new growers with retaining existing mushroom farm practices that can be easily transferred to their own farms. These courses will also include basic understanding of the Algorand ecosystem and technology. We will be doing this in order to prepare our clients for future collaborations.

Environmentally Friendly Farm

Our farms will be producing fungi by using recycled plastic with outdoor elements that will assist in healthy fungus. These farms will run off solar, wind, and hydropower at some locations. Solluna Farms will be the first full scale fungi farm to use reusables!

Future Blueprint

Online educational platform to teach crypto and fungi cultivation. Online marketplace full of wellness products, and mushroom cultivation supplies. Using the chain to track rewards for discounts using SPORE coin.

Benefits for the community

Genuine Rewards Program

The SPORE token’s only purpose is as a rewards and discount token for our products. This token will not be available on decentralized exchanges or other decentralized finance applications. SPORE can be used with our products to get up to a 20% discount, the amount of SPORE needed to get the full 20% discount will be voted on by our community.


The on-boarding of new Algorand users will occur with each new student that completes our courses. Courses will explain how the Algorand blockchain works and how we integrate our farms with the technology.

Unique NFT use case

Each type of grow kit for a particular fungus will come with an NFT that provides detailed information on what the grower has purchased. This means for every grow kit sold, a grower will use the Algorand chain in order to read their instructions and get more information about the fungus.

Additional information

Current clients in Oregon

  • C Street Bistro - Italian cuisine
  • Alchemy Restaurant and Bar - (fine dining) American style cuisine
  • Participation at local farmer markets
    We have one farm up and running! Zero debt, all self funded.

Environmentally focused

Cultivating fungi is not very environmentally friendly. The majority of large farms use plastics for growth and never attempt to achieve the scale and sustainability of a regenerative farm. The creative reuse of bags, the use of solar, and wind power by Solluna Farms will significantly alter the way that mushrooms are grown on a wide scale. The adoption of fungus will begin with educational courses. Since this will be the first application of NFTs in education, people will have a greater appreciation for what these devices are capable of. With practical classes offered around the state and online resources, we will instruct people on how to cultivate their own food and utilize technology responsibly in the Algorand Ecosystem.

Our two major goals will be to expand the Algorand blockchain and fungi farms. For ongoing research, the Oregon Solluna Farm will cultivate fungus with legal therapeutic properties. I currently work as a DSP for persons who have mental health issues. This product line will be put to the test in a variety of ways to demonstrate how fungi may actually benefit those in need. In the past I managed an Algorand NFT poker tournament. We had fifteen of the best NFT projects from Algorand on board. For our tournament we’ll be giving out courses, cross-chain games, mushroom rewards, and Algorand NFTs. Our hearts, souls, and considerable time has been going into this project. Working with mushrooms has shown the potential to significantly improve mental health and other health issues.

This company offers in-person workshops, mushroom foraging expeditions, and a gentle introduction to cryptocurrency and mushroom cultivation.

This is super cool! It would be great if you could offer some educational content on mushroom farming as a whole - I have zero idea what goes into it!

Kudos on a genuinely new and exciting idea.


Of course!! We will be running how to grow mushroom courses, as well as a soft 101 how to crypto course. You will be able to hands on grow live or online to learn the trade! Any other questions or feed back please!!! Hope to see you around the fungi community! We’re using an ASA SPORE coin as a rewards token for community members to get discounts on fungi products!
Thank you for you’re reply, if you have any more questions please feel free to reach out.

I respect the effort and im really not tryna be a hater lol but for real, a quick google search and we get this:

How does a blockchain integration or a pdf give you any kind of advantage over your competitors in the same field?

yeah there’s companys selling mushroom grow kits that’s not a surprise…It’s a sector that’s pretty much brand new. When you say mushrooms to the general public, peoples minds go to one place, and that’s magic mushrooms. This company will be offering way more in depth lessons of how to grow fungi AND COIN. If you look at the whole crypto space, I cant find a company that does soft on boarding in a fun way. I get where you’re head is going… thinking this will be another average fungi farm, you are very very wrong. Fungi farms have one goal and its to make profits, most use bags to cultivate, this farm will be breaking barriers growing mushrooms in an eco friendly way. Mixture between fungi farming and crypto education will be mashed together. ASA as a rewards token, online marketplace, online courses, live courses, educational nfts, I’ll be mostly on boarding new wallets after growing courses. To think this is an average fungi farm being built here, you’re way off. Not fully knowing mushroom cultivation, if you read through 143 with some more research into mushrooms, maybe you will see it a little more how different this farm is. Not to mention look up USA mushroom farms, tell me how many of them run in depth courses for fungi, and crypto. I’m not trying to be rude at all, so much planning and organizing is going into this, hope most see this not as a normal fungi farm, cause that’s not what’s being built here. Even the grow kits will be different from what you see on the current market. The world of fungi will gain more and more attention as time goes on, with the small time hobby grower wanting to learn the trade. Solluna farms will be on boarding new wallets with coin after live growing courses, and online courses. USA statewide we will be spread to 5 different states, offering these services where ever a farm opens. I’ve been learning how to grow these, taking my time on the sidelines watching existing farmers for about 4 years , time will show you what I mean, funding or no funding.
