The ModulTrade Platform, The World’s First Blockchain Based Global Trade Digital Marketplace For Small To Medium Business

In late November 2017, ModulTrade launched the ModulTrade Platform (MTP), the world’s first blockchain based trade platform democratizing global trade for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) with a new digital marketplace to meet, commit and execute trade anywhere in the world, safely and securely.

In October 2016, the ModulTrade team of MIT graduates began their mission to give an estimated 40mln MSMEs the same opportunities to trade between markets as per larger corporations. Currently, 56% of trade proposals made by MSMEs are rejected, compared to a mere 7% of those submitted by bigger companies. Now, the MTP provides a revolutionary change and solution to the many barriers MSMEs face when working to complete a successful trade cycle.

How the MTP works and its key features.  

By cleverly tapping into the heart of blockchain technology, the ModulTrade technical team have created an easy to navigate digital marketplace to sell and/or buy products. The application of smart-contracts legally and efficiently replaces conventional financial trade instruments, such as letters of credit and bank guarantees. Blockchain technology provides users a secure platform, with a simple digital end to end trade process, and transactions in real time. The launch of the ModulTrade crypto-token, MTRc (architected on the standard Ethereum) can be used directly within the ModulTrade Value Eco-system to further streamline the trade cycle.

Now, every entrepreneur can place an offer to sell and/or buy a product on the MTP. The ModulTrade team continually seeks new ways to expand opportunities for MSMEs from local to global and everything within the platform has been considered and tested, from the user’s first experience creating an account and logging in, to the benefits of trading in real-time with MTRc.

Integration with logistics company DHL (with further companies to be added) provides another solid layer of security with real time tracking, and the ability for the MTP to immediately signal across the platform to release funds, once the goods have been received.

Through very simple steps, whether you’re a buyer, seller, or both, you can easily register and update your profile, add a shipping and pick-up address, and use ETH/MTRc wallet with a ModulTrade account to make your secure and trusted transactions.

The ModulTrade teams’ application of smart-contracts means that the technology locks in funds right up until products are received, so you don’t have to worry about paying for goods before you see them. Other features of this global changing platform include uploading high-res images, to best market and promote products.

Crucially, one of the biggest achievements of the MTP is the very small transaction fee of only 1% to users. Compared to bank charges of anything between 5-15%, the application of blockchain technology and smart-contracts to build the MTP has streamlined efficiencies within the business model, allowing this saving to be passed directly to the user.

The future of digital global trade.

ModulTrade will change the way businesses trade and expand networks across the globe, all through the application of blockchain technology to run the platform and the use of digital currencies to successfully meet, commit and execute trade transactions.

Adopting digital currencies, the MTP accepts ETH (Ethereum) as well as MTRc for funds, with plans to soon accept other ERC20 tokens, along with fiat (USD, EU, £ etc.). To allow entrepreneurs to test the MTP, some MTRc has been released for free float in the system. Users may buy and sell MTRc at a nominal price of 1 ETH = 700MTRc at the exchange, Soon, the MTP will buy MTRc at a nominal rate for fiat from merchants.

The ModulTrade team have arrived in the market as one of the first to launch a new and fully functioning product that is set to shake up traditional processes, and more so provide the next revolution in digital trade technology. Through the dedication and fierce ambition to champion MSMEs, the ModulTrade team have naturally positioned themselves as trade finance pioneers, through the launch of their successful platform which companies are now beginning to use.
