Blockchain-Based Platform for the Physical Trade of Commodities

The technology that underlies cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, blockchain, is already disrupting many industries.

ChainTrade is using blockchain in order to improve the trade of commodities and raw materials.

“Banks and traders are experimenting with the technology behind bitcoin in an effort

to solve longstanding problems in the trading of physical commodities”

Today’s food and raw materials exchanges are


All exchanges are concentrated within a few market places in the world


As a result of the concentration, fees are high for traders and producers


Only major banks and investors can access, bigger players get better fees and conditions

The ChainTrade revolution

Moving 2 trillion USD of annual trade to the blockchain

ChainTrade will move the exchanges of futures and options on food and raw materials (commodity derivatives) to a decentralized blockchain, allowing anyone to participate – small and big players. Fees to traders, buyers and sellers will decrease dramatically. Smart Contracts will replace traditional contracts and cut intermediaries.


ChainTrade is a Singaporean startup part of the Blue Tiger group, a fast growing company founded in 2009 and now counting 90 employees in 6 countries.

Our activities are profitable and include Artificial Intelligence, Retail, Enterprise software, and Financial software.


  • 90 employees

  • $9m received in equity funding

  • Offices in 6 countries

  • 11 different nationalities

Our Vision

Making food and raw materials trading accessible to anyone, anywhere, without barriers

Buy and Sell From Anywhere

All Smart Contracts accessible from web, mobile or any other endpoint

All have equal access to any contracts from around the world. Initial Smart Contracts will be identical to traditional existing contracts in order to smoothen transition and liquidity

Low Fees, No Barriers

Fees reduced to less than half of today’s brokerage, clearing and exchange fees

No favored access. No minimum amounts required.

Ensuring Legal Compliance

KYC and AML cost reduced through Artificial Intelligence

ChainTrade will ensure to obtain proper licenses and authorizations from the relevant authorities, in Singapore first, then in the US followed by other significant markets such as China

A Decentralized, Robust Infrastructure

Stakeholders called Insurers will cover against counterparty risk

Anyone will be able to create Smart Contracts, e.g. a contract for delivery of 100,000 bushels of soybeans in August 2018. If Trader A wants to buy a piece of that Smart Contract, he will do so by matching the price offered by Trader B who wants to sell the same contract. Prior to that, Trader A and Trader B have made an agreement with Insurer A and Insurer B respectively. In case either Trader A or Trader B fails to deliver what they promised, their Insurer will deliver for them.
