How does Tokenization of commodities work?

MBX E-commodities are tokens on various blockchains that represent digital warehouse receipts and are fully backed by physical commodities. As internationally established trade documents, warehouse receipts provide a clear legal framework for the trade of MBX E-Commodities globally. A fully compliant transfer of ownership takes place upon transferring MBX tokens between accounts on the Blockchain ledger. There is a wide range of possibilities of how the terms of an E-Commodity can be designed. For example, MBX E-Commodities can be custom and specific to a transaction or standardised and therefore more suitable for trading on an exchange. Exchange traded MBX E-Commodities can also be used in "off-market" industrial trades.
