Create global community with high level of mutual trust
Create a powerful impulse for entrepreneurship
Today SME's creating up to 90% working places among all private companies. Wherein, 90% of business-loans issued to large corporations. Karma solves the capital accessibility issue for SME.
Distribute capitals evenly across the world
Some countries have deposit interest rates as small as -0.75% or 0.1%, and loan interest rates starting just from 1%. More than 3 billion people live in countries with loan interest rates as high as 20-30%.
Create opportunity for direct resources interchange
Karma is an ecosystem. All participants work directly with each other. People can create lots of different types of relationships, and can decide for themselves which ones are effective and which are not.
What Is Karma?
Global decentralized blockchain-platform, where people and companies can lend money directly to each other
10 Key Points
At Karma ecosystem anyone can play any role: involve new members, escrow, transaction transport, analytics, scoring, underwriting, insurance, currency exchange hedging, lawyers etc. Each community member earns money and reputation for useful actions: involving new investor or good borrower, hi-quality scoring, asset management, analytics, insurance etc.
Decentralized Interchange Rules
At Karma investors give their money directly to borrowers. Community members can offer any loan conditions: with collateral or without it, with interest rate or without it, with mandatory repayment or without it. Open market and high number of bids will speed up the evolution. People will choose the best types of relationships for different situations by themselves.
Effective SME owner from Latin America can attract money from Swiss investor, who has a negative deposit interest rate in his country. The ecosystem of thousands of hedge funds and currency exchange risk insurers will be in a competition to create the best option for risk minimization. Local lawyers provide correct e-contracts. Local agents provide debt recovery.
Different Types of Collateral
Cryptocurrencies and tokens, via bitShares technology. Real Estate. There's already an API in Russia, Sweden, Saudi Arabia and Ukraine and there'll be more. Goods and services. Automatic p2p-factoring is already exist. Gold and other digitalized assets: Digix, ChronoBank, BankEx. Every debt is transferable and splittable.Loan can be provided in fiat currencies via banking API and automatic payment commentaries analysis. After the statistics accumulation: loans issued in internal Karma tokens. A huge step to barter direct interchange economy.
Decentralized Data and App
Due to blockchain technology Karma doesn't rely on single server or hosting provider, and can provide sustainable service. The data is securely stored in a decentralized network. Karma app is decentralized too and executes in different servers. Anyone can connect the server to the Karma delegates' network and earn money storing and processing data.
All interaction processes in the ecosystem are automated as much as possible and don't require a physical presence: electronic loan and surety contracts, reassignment of obligations, collective claims, collateral registration and release, currency exchange risk insurance.
Loan approval time is as low as possible, and the loan itself is easy-to-use for borrowers: semi-automated scoring, one escrow account for bulk repayments for all investors, payment auto-split to multiple investors via smart-contract.
Automated scoring: Big Data, Machine learning. Scoring based on reputation accumulated after several successfully completed contracts. Social networks attached, online commercial data attached (Shopify, Etsy, Amazon, Ali, Spark). API for external scoring algorithms. Regular online re-scoring: control over actual borrowers' KPIs. Lots of hackathons for developing new scoring algorhytms. Social-responsible ecological scoring: If someone haven't passed the scoring at traditional bank, he's just get refused. In Karma he gets the tips on how to grow his score, he also gets the mentors list and special education courses.
Each participant of the transaction commits with his money and reputation. We create strong community based on mutual responsibility. If somebody fulfilled the obligation, his Karma is growing up. If he failed —it goes down. Also, Karma changes for everyone involved in contract: who brought the borrower into the ecosystem, who sureted for him, who scored his quote as positive.
Powerful tool for ecosystem growth. Goods and services manufacturers can easily involve their loyal customers as an investors in the growth of their business. If someone loves the goods they can crowdfund the manufacturer. Karma itself is not only a financial market. It creates opportunities to promote manufacturers worldwide, involve new distributors, and move to the new markets.
Loans For Future Delivery
One can sell his goods or services today and deliver them later. It's like a forward contract, for example: to crowdfund real estate construction at the early stages (day-usage-tokens instead of square meters), agricultural businesses to crowdfund their harvesting (potato-tokens), for air tickets or tours presales. Profitable for investors: significant discounts, or re-selling tokens at the exchange for profit. Profitable for manufacturers: make money today, make turnover faster, promote his own goods and services, payments with his own goods and services. This is a foundation for the barter economy like Swiss WIR.
Alpha-version of the blockchain platform will be available for private test at November.
