Tokoin provides digital infrastructure to build Digital Business Identity. Set of data containing KYC process, routine transactions, behavior records are stored in the Decentralized Ledger.
Problems That We Want to Solve
High Barriers to Funding Financial inclusion is still low in emerging markets, in most cases MSME are not able to fulfill loan requirements. While in fact MSME are the dominant form of business entities, they started business with quite small funding and operating with limited facility.
Difficulty in scaling up Most MSME do not produce enough to take advantage of economies of scale. They also have low order volumes which means they hold little leverage with suppliers and do not receive volume discounts. This results in higher production and transaction costs compared to large enterprises.
The Absence of Business Support MSME is trapped in a cycle of high costs, minimal financial support, and stiff competition. At the root of this cycle is a lack of trust from institutions which should have been able to support the MSME to sustain and grow.
Credibility That Opens Access to Funding Tokoin provides the technology infrastructure to generate data utilization in the form of digital asset that secures their credibility that complies to the standard of the bank funding requirement.
Scaling Up by Access to Expansion Opportunities TOKOIN utilizes data record in the blockchain network as a valid metric for business reputation. In other words, this reputation will be built on the MSME’s buying behavior in trading activities and this information will become an important part of the MSME’s profile.
Leveraging Business Profile as Reputation Tokoin platform gives MSMEs the infrastructure to establish a reputation profile, by assembling the non-financial data from MSME such as data submitted in the KYC protocol to develop into the Digital Business ID.
MSME, Micro Small and Medium Enterprises are the core of the Tokoin ecosystem. To start using the Tokoin platform, MSME will generate their business account as the Digital Business Identity. These business records are processed in a Digital Business ID.
The ecosystem serves partners as the data user. Financial Institutions, Suppliers, and Service Providers obtain the transaction information stored in the Tokoin ecosystem for their business purposes.
