Our story

Founded by a group of leading Commodity and IT professionals with proven track records of success, TradeCloud is a bespoke platform, designed and developed specifically for the physical commodity markets.

TradeCloud’s vision is to bring the commodity industry into the digital age, by providing it with a state-of-the-art communications platform and the realisation of The Commodities Web -

a network-of networks of services, built around blockchain technology.

Live for just one year, TradeCloud has attracted over 200 enterprises and 400 users onto its platform. With customers in over 36 countries, some of the largest global producers and consumers have signed up to join our growing community. Over USD 500 million of physical commodity trades have already been initiated on

the platform and the volume is accelerating.

TradeCloud currently serves the metals industry and plans to expand into the energy and agricultural sectors in the near future. The combined trade value across the three markets is estimated to be in excess of USD 8 trillion per year- representing one, if not the, largest untapped e-commerce opportunity available today.

Token Metrics

Coin distribution

TC Coins will be convertible into internal payment units via a smart contract.

The TC Coins will be distributed as follows:

Token Metrics

Use of funds

The funds raised will be used to accelerate the growth of TradeCloud. The TradeCloud management team expects the funds to be applied in the following manner.

Marketing of the platform 40%
Debt repayment 6%
Acquisition 19%
Software development 25%
Early adopter incentives 10%

Unlike many other Technology start-ups, TradeCloud has been funded by its Founders. This has led to a strict budgetary process and all expenditure has only been made after rigorous cost/benefit analysis. This discipline will continue going forwards.

Based on the current budget, it is anticipated that a successful STO will raise enough funds to allow TradeCloud to aggressively develop and promote the product for at least the next three years, irrespective of revenue. This gives the company sufficient head room to grow in the most logical way.

Our Platform

What is the problem ?

The commodity industry has been slow to change. Market participants and service providers remain disconnected, only being able to reach each other through out dated or not-fit for purpose communication tools. This has led to inefficient communication, inadequate price discovery and a poor allocation of services to the industry.

The lack of digitalization in this space has contributed to fraud, sometimes on an enormous scale such as Quingdao ( pop up ) and emailed payment instructions being intercepted and changed. Services such as new finance channels and credit insurance capacity have not been able to be accessed and utilized as the providers and those that need their services have not been connected. Inefficient processes and antiquated price discovery methods have caused rising costs and shrinking margins.

How will we solve it ?

TradeCloud is already building communities and connecting the industry over it’s secure, efficient and easy to use platform. Our digital vision, centred around the Corda blockchain will make transacting and executing physical commodity trades, fast, efficient, secure, both reducing costs and improving margins at the same time.
