Three pain points in our economy
Inflexible flow of goods & assets
Goods and assets fall into their "stereotypical roles". Besides a few second-hand markets, buying and selling goods and assets not traditionally "meant for" investment are overlooked as possibilities. In contrast, by offering these options, we can empower sellers by reducing their exposure to market uncertainties (in the case of product futures) or by broadening their options (in the case of exotic assets); they can serve as substitutes or complements to traditional financing channels.
Deep divide between financing & operations
Firms look to "investors" for financing and "consumers" for their market. Financing and operations are miles apart. In contrast, by integrating product futures and exotic assets into their business models, firms can reduce their exposure to price and demand uncertainties and obtain funds for their business operations through new channels. Similarly, corporate investors can reduce their exposure to price and supply uncertainties.
Pervasion of "exclusivity"
Non-economic reasons to exclude lead to suboptimal resource allocation. Unfortunately, most goods & assets are not open for investment to ordinary guys or small corporate investors. In contrast, by supporting product futures and exotic assets, we can break down unnecessary restrictions and serve the broad economic community.
We present an innovative solution
Flexibility & tokenization
We extend the marketplace format to product futures and exotic assets with the help of distributed ledger technology. Products and services to be delivered in the future can be sold at present, while indivisible, illiquid yet valuable assets can be used for financing. All stakeholders gain a new degree of flexibility as a result.
Agility & broad appeal
Rent-generating exotic assets and physically-delivered product futures make possible a number of business model innovations for firms. Similarly, investors and consumers benefit from new investment methods and new consumption models.
Navigability & matching
We integrate intelligent and adaptive search & filtering functions found in leading e-commerce platforms. They drive the disperse and discovery of authentic information, thus greatly facilitating navigation, comparison, and decision-making. Better buyer–seller matching becomes a reality.
Auction method & optimal price discovery
With our unique auction method (optional), inputs from all participating buyers together determine the final price of the tokens. By design, this market mechanism ensures correct valuation. The price discovered through this process is also the one that the secondary market is ready to support.
A secondary market nested in each good or asset make it easy for those who have made purchases resell whenever they like. This feature sits at the core of the agility that our solution offers.
Real-world goods & assets are different from virtual "currencies" in that each is backed by tangible goods or services. They are also not traditional "securities". These characteristics make them comparatively safer — of course, consumers and companies completely disinterested in financing & investment can nevertheless use our marketplace and gain tangible value.
