ARKRATOS is a blockchain solutions company founded in Singapore in 2017. ARKRATOS has developed a blockchain solution called KRATOS, a trading platform for the physical commodities business. The platform addresses challenges for the physical commodities trading business, in particular the lack of access to trade finance for Small to Medium Enterprises (SME) players in the commodities.
KRATOS will address the lack of trade finance for SME’s through a Token Curated Registry (TCR) process. Currently SME’s must almost exclusively go through banks to raise trade finance. This is a long and cumbersome process, often delaying the trade lifecycle and significantly reducing trade profits. At times, certain trade finance deals will not be financed due to manpower issues and system inefficiencies among banks. ARKRATOS’ management and advisory team has over a 100 year of collective experience in trading physical commodities and has been working very closely with players in the physical commodities trading space to deliver an innovative and robust model for various players to both receive and provide trade finance.
KRATOS will provide SMEs a platform to facilitate fundraising for TCR processed qualified trades. This in turn will enable KRATOS to achieve its vision in 3 years as the premier one stop shop for all physical commodities trading needs, making us the Alibaba of physical commodities trading.
