ModulTrade is a new blockchain based platform

ModulTrade is a new blockchain based platform, championing MSME’s (micro, small and medium enterprises), to be able to trade with ease, efficiency and trustfully.

  • There are over 400mln MSME’s worldwide, many of which are faced with high transaction fees and lack of trust when trying to trade on global marketplace

  • 56% of MSME’s trade finance proposals rejected, while larger corporations stand at only 7% of dismissals.

  • There is clearly a problem which requires a solution to help all companies, no matter their size or bandwidth, to trade between markets, across the globe.

In early October, ModulTrade launched their token pre-sale, as a way of fulfilling their mission to build and serve a platform that will provide a solid solution and expand trade possibilities for MSME’s. Through tapping into the heart of blockchain technology, the ModulTrade team have created a smart-contract platform, which will:

  • Reduce transaction fees from 4-15%, to as little as 1% 

  • Connect MSME’s from anywhere in the world, no matter their size or location

  • Through smart-contracts replicate traditional processes, including letters of credit and bank guarantees 

  • Provide a secure and safe digital trade platform, easily accessible through smartphones or desktops

It has been over a year since the ModulTrade team of MIT graduates first came up with this forward-thinking idea, and have been working efficiently with a strategic project roadmap, in order to deliver a sound product which is effective, tested and streamlined – all for easy access and navigation by any user.

During the last few months, the technical team at ModulTrade have been working hard at building their minimal viable product, using real user feedback, to ensure the product is tried against all eventualities and then redeveloped to meet high standards of perfection.

Following the success of the token sale, the team aims to continue developing the platform, with plans to launch in Europe in 2018, followed by Asia and then the US, to achieve a robust network of trade globally by 2019 at the latest.

Alongside the pre-sale launch, ModulTrade introduced their own crypto currency, the MTRc. Architected on Ethereum (ETH), this new token allows users to buy and exchange within the system, in real time, and complies with the widely-accepted ERC-20 Ethereum token standard. MTRc will also be compatible with all ether wallets and can be easily added to common crypto-exchanges for trading.

A total of 40mln MTRc tokens are available, with a soft cap of 15,000 ETH. During the period of the pre-sale, 10mln MTRc have been set aside at the value of 1MTRc = 1ETH/700. At the start of the pre-sale, a 40% discount was applied, but following the high level of interest from participants around the world, this discount was reduced sooner than planned, to 30%, and will remain so until further updates.

At the end of the pre-sale, the ModulTrade team will progress their project with the launch of their main sale on 28 November, releasing the final 30mln MTRc tokens, where the hard cap will be announced two weeks prior as well as any changes in the value of MTRc, although this will not be less than the current pre-sale value.

In terms of the distribution of the tokens, once the main sale ends, ModulTrade has plans in place to share MTRc tokens, as per the following breakdown:

  • 40%(Pre-sale-10%, Token sale 30%);
  • Post Sale: Product development 20%;
  • Ecosystem creation 22%;
  • Team 15% (5% will be distributed within 6 months after the Token sale is finished, 5% will be released after the 1st year, 5%- after the 2nd year);
  • Advisory 3%.

As far as projections go, based on the current estimate number of enterprises and the markets to be launched in, the ModulTrade team aim to have 216,000 users in 2018, 768,000 by 2019, and 1,248,000 by 2020, expanding and growing at a steady increase. This equates to a growth in trade value from $4,050,000 in 2018, to $60,750,00 by 2020. These figures demonstrate not only the ambition of the ModulTrade team, but also the viability of the product and the need for a platform like the MVE to grow trade economy.

In summary, ModulTrade rises above others by creating added value for not just the user, but third parties including trade-related service providers and trade software developers:

  • Users: a pioneering model to trade with freedom, through trust, efficiency and with ease, allowing for global collaboration;

  • Service providers: a digital marketplace to build on relationships and networks, between both trade services and trade participants, globally;

  • Software developers: a platform to build on and make technological advancements, further benefiting the wider financial, technology and trade industries.

The ModulTrade proposition and projections speak of promise and opportunity to enterprises as well as the financial trade industry. The rigour set in place by the team in their project trajectory and success of the pre-sale to date has resulted in an air of optimism at the ModulTrade HQ, with enthusiasm continuing ahead of the main sale.
