SmartCargo FAQ’s

1Why did you decide to launch SmartCargo? What gap are you filling?

Due to a present ineffective logistics industry there are huge amounts of time and money that can be saved. Using over 13 years of past experiences in the industry and emerging high-end technologies that encompasses IoT and Blockchain we are here to do exactly that.

2Why STO?

Most importantly, STO’s are regulated, offering more security to the investors, while ICO’s are not. Doing an STO and offering shares to investors is a bridge, a compromise between speculative investments in ICO and big institutional investors that look for highly scalable blockchain projects. Besides that we also believe security tokens are the future of funding as they provide liquidity and exit strategy to its investors/owners.

3What is the competitive landscape like today?

The competitor analysis we conducted has revealed that we are a big step before our competition as our competitors only offer a partial solution. A major issue we have identified is that our competitors use public blockchain that is due to its high transaction fees and slow transactions per second (TPS) not appropriate for use in large enterprises. Thus, the use of public blockchain has not been seen in practice.

4What are your competitive advantages?

SmartCargo will use private blockchain = Hyperledger as it has no TPS limitations or transaction fees. Hyperledger is an open source project used by the leading technology companies such as SAP and IBM. As we believe that the current challenges in the logistics industry can not be solved by tackling individual segments of the logistics process SmartCargo will focus on the optimisation of the whole process through which our clients will gain full control over their cargo.

5Why Blockchain?

Since blockchain is transparent it allows all parties to access past actions and therefore remove any “trust” concerns. All transactions are immutable, and will be visible to everyone with access to the network, reducing the potential for fraud. Blockchain data is logged digitally, consequently companies will be able to utilize more data than ever before.

6Why did you decide to use Hyperledger?

The evaluation of different platforms put Hyperledger Fabric on top as the most suited for the actual solution because it ticks all the following boxes:

  • the cost of network usage is unrelated to some volatile tokens but remains predictable and affordable;
  • all authorized users of a business network and their permissions are managed through ACLs (Access Control List);
  • there is no wasteful maintenance of consensus across the network since there is no competitive mining involved;
  • the transaction size/throughput is only limited by the hardware the network runs on, which linear scaling addressing future needs;
  • there is no external authority other than SmartCargo to decide what happens with the network in the future;
  • the network is protected against transaction spamming by other applications' users.

7Is SCO an ERC-20 token?

Yes, SCO is an ERC-20 token, which will act as revenue share token and will be tradable on upcoming STO exchanges we are already in contact with.

8Is SCO utility or security token?

SCO is a security token. The reason for the contributors to buy the tokens, is the anticipation of future profits in form of revenue share. A security token represents traditional, private security interest and also a share in a company.

9When SmartCargo platform will be fully operational?

We are 100% dedicated to fulfil our promises. SmartCargo will be fully operational in Q4 – 2019. Test pilots with large companies are planned in Q3 2019. (Roadmap)
