BlockChain for Commodities Tokenization

In recent years, technologies such as Blockchain are revolutionizing our society at an exponential speed. In just 10 years, Blockchain went from being essentially what supports cryptocurrency transactions to a technology with diverse applications for countless businesses. Naturally the Supply chain and Logistics industries have developed use-cases solving intricate issues that companies have been facing.

 

Neurored uses blockchain to tokenize commodities thereby digitalizing the Global Supply Chain.

Neurored is the leader in delivering real production environments of Blockchain technologies for Global Trade, leveraging the unique combination of the leading cloud platform, Force.com and the leading permissioned blockchain technology, Hyperledger Fabric. Our solutions, described below, enable global trading partners to operate with a susbtantial level of trust, while simultaneously avoiding commercial fraud exposure that is unavoidable in equivalent paper-based processes or unsecured digitized processes.

Commodities Tokenization (Digital Assets):

By taking advantage of Hyperledger Fabric, Neurored’s platform allows to tokenize commodities by leveraging the security that Blockchain provides. Indeed, trading companies can incorporate key documents to Neurored’s secure Hyperledger, saving them both a great amount of time and money by exchanging a trustworthy proof of ownership.

For instance, one application involves the tokenization of Negotiable Warehouse Receipts (WR) issued by authorized warehouses. This process therefore accelerates the trading of commodities stored in a warehouse, without requiring any movement of the assets themselves. Digitization of WR encourages trading partners to make secure transactions (WR endorsements) of commodities stored in warehouses and other storage facilities such as silos. Trust between trading partners is based on the digital process and the technology itself, which makes actual commercial fraud impossible. In a similar way, Bill of Ladings (BOL) issued by Break Bulk Shipping Lines can be tokenized to accelerate trade of commodities in transit on vessels.

Secure Marketplaces:

Neurored also develops custom marketplaces for its customers in which sellers and buyers can trade commodities through the exchange of these tokens. Our Blockchain ledger of published prices (sale and purchase prices), availabilities, quality parameters, schedules and orders, encourages trading partners of commodities marketplaces to trade in a safer way.

In addition our marketplaces seamlessly enables demand and supply of products to meet by agreeing on such terms as price, availability and quality. By requesting the contribution of a trustworthy third party (e.g. inspection service, warehouse management service etc.) to certify the agreed-upon conditions, the exchange of goods can be carried out in a reliable and unbiased manner.

Secure Factoring:

Neurored has also built a Blockchain ledger of trade documents (Order, Invoice, BOL…) and related approval processes which enables traders provide financial institutions more trust over their commercial operations in order to obtain better discount rates for their factoring operations.

 

At Neurored we have an indefatigable desire to innovate and bring organizations involved in Global Trade the tools allowing them to do business in a highly cost-efficient and sustainable way, as well as gain competitive advantage by implementing state of the art technologies. Blending blockchain into our cloud platform, thereby enabling an easy navigation between the physical and digital dimensions of a business, is just one of the innovations we have conceived.
