GrainChain creates an exchange platform with blockchain-based solutions for prompt payment and accountability. Since the dawn of agriculture, human beings have continually sought higher efficiency and security in the production and trading of food.
The modern age has seen the economics of agriculture and soft commodities repeatedly transformed by sudden technical innovations, a pattern which will continue to repeat itself. In the 1850’s advancements in refrigeration and food preservation dramatically lowered food prices and increased availability.
In the 1940’s innovation came in the form of gasoline tractors replacing horse drawn plows. Today, blockchain technology is poised to play a major part in the agricultural revolution of our time.
GrainChain’s patent pending solution utilizes blockchain technology to address numerous issues present within the soft commodities markets, such as fraud at all stages, large and small-scale corruption, payment delays, access to futures commodities market, and a cycle of debt that is difficult to escape. GrainChain changes this.
GrainChain utilizes the well-known properties of blockchains to address the systemic problems present in soft commodities markets, an industry in which the GrainChain team already has first hand experience in building software solutions. The GrainChain system greatly increases transparency and accountability within the agriculture business by eliminating disparate and wasteful paper trails, greatly eliminating the opportunity for fraud and dramatically reducing time and costs.
It ensures the prompt and secure execution of contracts between farmers and buyers, by both automatically facilitating payment to the farmer and making available the corresponding financial instrument for trading on commodities markets while verifying it is backed by only real assets in the system. This shortens a process that can currently take weeks down to a nearly instantaneous one.

While opportunistic, this approach to investing brings a degree of uncertainty. We are building a new class of investments, called Target Outcome Investments, that target a defined return profile, with an allowance for a specific level risk, at a specific point in time in the future.
Such investments strive to provide investors with targeted protection, enhanced returns, or consistent income, with a level of predictability unattainable with most other investments.. .
Hi we are CommTrade and in current specific time we are already save money for a plastics trader. We are b2b software for raw material traders In order to produce many of the plastic objects we use in our daily lives in the US alone, 30,000 plastic traders lose 4 to 6 hours of employee work time on messy and tedious operational work.
Why?… Because the deals and shipment process is a mess.
We come from the polymer trading industry. When we had to purchase and deliver raw materials for manufacturing, we spent hours on phone calls and meetings, working in excel spreadsheets and sending tons of documents.
We tired of it and… We created CommTrade – an intelligent solution that improves productivity by automating, tracking and streamlining workflows between contractors. As results we cut 37% time of work per deal, get 17% more in annual revenue and total control of all business streams.
We calculates that we saves over 1 thousand dollars per deal. An average trading company makes over 50 deals monthly.
So we can provide monthly savings over 50 thousands for each company. For this we charge 1k dollars in monthly subscription for a basic product and we will go deeply in automation of business.
