Revolutionising Trade and Supply Chain: Trade-Fi lending on XDC Network
Let it first be said, that Blockchain tokenisation can bring several improvements to the trade and supply chain/logistics industry, revolutionising the way goods and services are exchanged and managed.
Unlocking Cash Flow for MSMEs
But aside from that significant improvement, the importance of freeing up cash flow with improved Trade Finance lending to MSME may be one of the most important outcomes to the Societies and Nations of Earth of the 21st Century.
Instant Paperwork, Real-Time Liquidity
Businesses will no longer be waiting inordinate amounts of time – waiting for paperwork to arrive from one location to another – paperwork will ALWAYS be on time – in fact instant when freight arrives and is received at the destination. Cash flow related to each freight transaction will be made liquid far more quickly, far more responsively to the movement of cargo and goods all over the world.
Empowering Middle Economies
The mere impact on Micro/Small/Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) cash flow and thus increase in real-time liquidity alone will be enough to turbo charge the Middle Economies – and the vitally significant small business economic class in each region and nation.
A Paradigm Shift in Lending
However, the LENDING industries, may also undergo a paradigm shift through tokenisation of Trade Finance itself. Here are some ways blockchain tokenisation can benefit trade finance lending, or Trade-Fi:
Enhancing Liquidity and Accessibility
Trade financing and liquidity Tokenisation can create new financial instruments, such as trade finance tokens, which represent ownership of trade receivables. These tokens can be traded on secondary markets, providing liquidity to suppliers and reducing their reliance on traditional financing.
Speed, Security, and Streamlined Transactions
Faster and more secure transactions Blockchain tokenisation enables peer-to-peer transactions without the need for intermediaries. This reduces the time and costs associated with traditional trade finance processes and enhances security through cryptographic techniques.
Efficiency and Automation through Smart Contracts
Enhanced efficiency and automation Smart contracts can automate various trade-related processes. These self-executing contracts ensure that all parties involved adhere to predefined terms, reducing administrative burdens and human errors.
