Problems & Solutions

Problems

  • Unavailability of Data: Leveraging data has become an important part of modern business. Unfortunately, many MSMEs are still behind the curve when it comes to understanding the data they have and how the data can help them in decision-making. In the case of some MSMEs, this comes out as no surprise. Businesses like local restaurants and hair salons are largely offline and/or lack systems to collect data. Even when data are available, these are often siloed by the stakeholders in the industry. Nothing is shared, so there is no tangible benefit to the industry. In other cases, data are collected but not utilized due to a lack of data science expertise. Big Data, as they are popularly known, have become dominated by the largest corporations which have the resources to collect, store, and process a vast amount of diverse data.

  • High Barriers to Funding: Despite the huge number of MSMEs, the system of national licensing remains complex for the MSMEs to get authorization, and more than half of the operating MSMEs are enduring in the micro, informal sectors. As micro enterprises, many of them have to resort to individual funding when establishing their business. While MSMEs are, in fact, the dominant form of business entities, they start their business with a quite small funding and operate with limited facilities.

  • Scaling Up in the Emerging Markets: Most MSMEs do not produce enough to take advantage of the economies of scale. They also have low order volume, which means that they hold little leverage with suppliers and do no receive volume discounts. This results in higher production and transaction costs compared to large enterprises. Also, unlike corporations who have whole departments dedicated to procurement and finance, MSMEs have fewer resources to search for better suppliers or appropriate financing. International expansion is similarly problematic. Large corporations can tap into rich global networks and leverage their low production costs to offer competitive products in any market they enter. MSMEs, on the other hand, lack these valuable networks and often struggle to compete in new markets.

  • The Absence of Reputation: Given those problems, MSMEs often feel trapped in a cycle of high costs, minimal financial support, and tough competition. At the root of this cycle is a lack of trust. Suppliers do not trust them, banks do not trust them, and, ultimately, customers do not trust them. What is missing is a way for MSMEs to build a reputation that engenders trust and opens up access to a wide variety of services that promote growth.

Solutions of Tokoin

  • Establishment of Business Profiles: Tokoin platform gives MSMEs the opportunity to establish a reputation profile that helps them build trust from banks, suppliers, and other service providers. It is a solution that levels up the playing field so that MSMEs can get access to services that were previously unavailable. MSMEs which, for example, struggle to secure loans will now have a solution that allows them to approach banks with confidence. Service providers, in turn, will be given access to the reputation profiles of a diverse network of trusted MSMEs. They will be able to check these MSMEs’ reputation data at the tap of a button to help them make more timely and informed decisions. Additionally, with the revenue generated from data requests going directly to the MSMEs, it will be a win-win solution for both sides.

  • Provision of Access to Funding: One of the main barriers that most MSMEs face to survive in today’s economy is funding, while it is actually the power source for MSMEs to enable better productivity and answer the call for business expansion. Apparently, there are several terms and conditions set by the banks which MSMEs, in most cases, are not able to fulfill. One of them is credibility. MSMEs with lack of business profiles have been neglected in the emerging markets. To illustrate, start-ups are one of the business sectors that sprout recently in the society, and most of them were established just recently. Thus, they commonly have less than 5 years of operation and experience. 

  • Scaling Up through Access to Expansion Opportunities: Through a blockchain network, information data containing business transactions can be verified in the ecosystem. Tokoin utilizes data recorded in the blockchain network as a valid metric for building a business reputation. In other words, this reputation will be built based on a client’s buying behavior in trading activities, and this information will become an important part of the client’s profile. With this mindset, Tokoin is able to transform an accurate record of data into a valuable asset that MSMEs can use as a leverage to make up for their lack of conditions that can satisfy lending requirements, such as credibility scoring. This will let MSMEs as users get access to the financial services needed to achieve business growth.

Features & Highlights

  • Lending Marketplace: Tokoin can become a matchmaker between MSMEs that need funds and Banks which will give Lending Solutions.

  • Crowdlending (Debt Crowdfunding): Crowdlending works in almost the same way as Lending Marketplace Solution, except that the source of fund will come from multiple Investors. 

  • Cross-merchant Loyalty Program: An MSME company (as a merchant) can give rewards to other companies (as customers) on Tokoin’s ecosystem in the form of movable digital assets called TOKO Points. TOKO Points can be used to redeem discount vouchers for not only the issuing Merchant but also other Merchants on the ecosystem.

  • Product Survey/Voting: Brands as Tokoin Partners can conduct product surveys by broadcasting product questionnaires on Tokoin’s ecosystem. The blockchain will ensure the authenticity of each participant to avoid the same participant filling in more than once (double voting) by applying a Unique Private Key for each participant.

  • Invoice-based Financing: This solution will help MSMEs when experiencing late payments from customers and smoothen their business cash flow. MSMEs can use unpaid invoices as collaterals to get funds. This feature will involve at least three parties: Invoice Issuer (MSMEs that need funds), Invoice Payer (Buyer), and Bank/Creditor.

  • Installment Buying: This solution facilitates MSMEs who need to buy products/services but have limited funds at that time. Based on a history of trading activities (also recorded on the blockchain) as a basis for evaluating the reputation of MSMEs, Merchants on the ecosystem can provide installments that are more flexible than a one-time payment in advance.

  • Group Buying: Also known as collective buying, this solution offers products and services at significantly reduced prices by applying quantity discount under the condition that a minimum number of buyers would make the purchase. This only applies to buyers and sellers who have joined Tokoin’s ecosystem.
