Blockchain powered commodity markets
Utilising blockchain technology to create the commodity markets of the future
Todays commodity markets are constrained by antiquated technology and processes ...
Traditional (paper) warehouse receipts carry a high fraud risk and existing financial instruments for commodities such as ETFs, CFDs, Options and Futures can be expensive to maintain, impractical for obtaining direct ownership and carry counter-party default risk. In addition, investing in some commodities can be expensive, impractical, and logistically difficult. Many commodities do not have exchange traded markets due to the associated costs of traditional systems to maintain one, and thus have a problem with market transparency, liquidity, and lack ways for industry to hedge market risk associated with their raw materials. Mercantile Blockchain Exchange will provide exposure to previously inaccessible, illiquid commodities without the complications of today’s current alternatives whilst solving many problems for industrial trading of commodities.
What are tokenized commodities and MBX E-Commodities?
MBX E-Commodities are next-generation digital warehouse receipts
Tokenized commodities (or crypto commodities) in general terms are accounting units (or tokens) administered on the blockchain that represent ownership of physical commodities or rights to physical commodities. MBX E-Commodities are tokens that represent digital warehouse receipts and are fully backed by physical commodities. They give the holder full ownership of and can be exchanged for the underlying physical commodity. MBX E-Commodities are the cornerstones of the MBX Ecosystem.
Physical commodities are safely stored in 3rd party depositories and can be exchanged for the corresponding blockchain tokens at any time.
Standardized tokenized commodities can be traded on exchange, used for industrial off-exchange trades or collateralized for credit.
Commodities are inspected before tokenization by 3rd party service providers. After, stockpiles are audited and reports are published regularly.
