Catena - A Completely Decentralized Trading Platform

in #ico3 years ago


Market Overview

Over the years, trade has contributed significantly to the growth and development of most economies worldwide. Since 2006, global goods exports have risen by more than 32%, surpassing the $ 16 trillion mark last year. Similarly, commercial services exports grew by a massive 64% to reach $ 4.8 trillion.

The huge increase in global merchandise trade was strongly influenced by finished goods and agricultural products. Catena believes that the introduction of new technologies will further this development.

What is Catena?

Catena is a distributed trading platform that leverages the groundbreaking ability of blockchain technology to transform the global trading economy. In the last three decades, world trade has increased significantly both in terms of volume and turnover. Although the living conditions of many people are alleviated, the sector still faces challenges that hinder the realization of its full potential. These are the problems that the Catena exchange wants to solve.

Catena’s leadership team consists of experienced professionals with extensive experience in trading, manufacturing, technology, quality control and so on.

To be the largest trusted platform for global and domestic trades, and the first choice for all business transaction across the globe, with a mission of Empowering every business with a strong platform and powerful tools for growing their market reach and secure their business activities, while opening the door to limitless opportunities for small and medium enterprises, through transparency of market parameters and low entry barriers to compete, enabling a growing and prosperous trade economy.

Problems that Catena seeks to solve

The biggest challenge in this sector is the high prevalence of fraud. For now. Fraud causes an annual loss of $ 4 trillion, mainly due to the vulnerability of the existing infrastructure. As a result, affected institutions are often forced to declare bankruptcy or, in severe cases, shut down entirely. Usually, most scammers create open accounts, buy goods and services, but are spared of making payments.

In addition to fraud, the retail industry is also bothered by problems in the supply chain. These issues include unfavorable regulations, corruption, poor transport infrastructure, delayed deliveries and so on.

Instead, transactions are mediated directly between users denouncing the Catena platform. This, coupled with the immutability of Blockchain, makes transactions transparent and immune to fraud.
