KRATOS Demystified – Blockchain based Physical Commodities Trading platform


Almost all industries rely on physical commodity trades for goods production. Things you use and consume everyday; be it cars, food, or cellphones, All require parts that need to be transported from one part of the world to another. Ever wondered why the prices of commodities are so volatile? This phenomenon is a result of old trading processes full of inefficiencies which increases production costs and, in turn, impacts the price at which we buy those products. Sadly, commodity trading has not changed much in decades. Despite the reliance on intermediaries, trading firms still use decades-old process of using paper contract the perfect tool for frauds, defaults and complications. The industry is plagued with lack of transparency, efficiency and speed The biggest challenge the industry faces is ensuring the quality of product. But, because there are several parties involved, the quality assurance certificate can be forged at multiple ends and no one would know where the fraud occurred. The inability to trace the origin of the product often leads to a lack of transparency and mistrust between trade partners and intermediaries are usually hired to help oversee the trading operation because of it However, the truth is, these mediators extract fees which can increase the operational cost by 5% or more. The second major challenge originates from the industry’s dependency on manual documentation.
