About TradeFlows

TradeFlows was first demonstrated publicly during the Reserve Bank of Australia’s CBDC pilot program in mid 2023. Through the platform, users create digital escrows and programmable payment streams, to de-risk counterparty exposure in supply chains. Fully or partly collateralise payment obligations and agree the conditions for automated payment. A new standard for commercial interactions.

FEATURES

TradeFlows Features

Negotiate and create a digital contract which agrees payment conditions between counterparties. A single contract version, transparent for all stakeholders.

Agreement Creation

By using programmable payments and whitelisted participants, financiers are able to control which parties can be paid in a given transaction, avoiding exposure to bad actors.

Control Financing

All TradeFlows network participants go through KYC / AML processes at onboarding, so you know who you are dealing with.

Whitelist counterparties

One of the foundational pillars of TradeFlows is transparency. Every transaction is recorded on the blockchain, meaning all stakeholders in a transaction have a clear, immutable, verifiable record of their financial interaction. Using cryptographic confidentiality, only those participants in a transaction may view the details.

Transparency

Payor and payee agree the structure and conditions for payment, which are triggered automatically through time-based or oracle-based conditions.

Payment Mechanisms

Payors place collateral in a digital escrow account, to fully or partly support the agreed payment conditions. All stakeholders can inspect the existence and quantum of collateral.

BENEFITS AND UNIQUE VALUE PROPOSITION

TradeFlows Benefits

TradeFlows transcends traditional financial tools, offering businesses a fresh approach to managing their transactions. It's not just about efficiency; it's about revolutionising the way businesses operate, engage, and grow.

By automating payment triggers and providing collateral up front, working capital needs are reduced for payees, thereby reducing costs.

Reduced Working Capital

By agreeing payment conditions upfront and automating the triggers, supply chain participants can clearly see how and when they will be paid.

Clarity of payment terms 

By collateralising payment obligations in escrow, payees gain confidence funds are available to meet their payments. Funds which cannot be used for competing purposes.

Reduced Counterparty Risk

Even in supply chains with multiple layers, transaction participants can clearly inspect the conditions for payment and existence of collateral. This enhances trust and reduces risk, thereby reducing the cost of capital.

Enhanced 

Trust

The automated nature of TradeFlows, built on the foundation of blockchain, ensures transactional errors are drastically reduced, meaning smoother and quicker business operations.
