“SMEs are less likely to be able to obtain bank loans than large firms; instead, they rely on internal funds, or cash from friends and family, to launch and initially run their enterprises” Worldbank.
According to the global record, Formal SMEs contribute up to 60% of total employment and up to 40% of national income (GDP) in emerging economies. The number got even higher when micro and informal SMEs are included. However, access to finance often constraint MSME’s growth. Within the absence from access to capital, many MSMEs find it difficult to grow, not infrequently comes to stagnation, or even languish.
To be compared with large firms, SMEs are less likely able to obtain bank loans. This is when we talk about formal SMEs, what about the informal? The financing gap is even larger when micro and informal enterprises are taken into account. The number increases to 70% of the micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) in emerging markets still lack access to credit.
Financial institution as bank or insurance, require credit scoring or credibility status to whoever who wants to apply a credit proposal. Though MSMEs has a massive contribution to the emerging market, the absence of credit scoring and lack of credibility status makes them very hard to obtain future financial institution’s fund.
What we do
A key area of the Tokoin work is to accelerate MSME’s through convenient access to finance and find innovative solutions to unlock sources of capital.
Our approach is by enabling the blockchain technology on our platform, combining digital identity and digital ledger to build MSMEs credit scoring services, to increase MSME’s economic scale. This technology has a similar function as the bank account for its transactional recording. However, the blockchain gave their user authority to themselves. Each user are liberated to share assets to whoever they trust, directly.
With this proper technological implementation, we facilitate the MSME sector to embrace economic inclusion.
The idea is to bring prosperity to MSMEs. On this modern business ecosystem, Tokoin allows the MSMEs on having the financial records as similar as with the bank. Every transaction that is initiated through Tokoin’s platform is accurately recorded with timestamps.
By thus, Tokoin facilitates MSMEs to have a better record of financial transactions, as a form of credit history to build the credibility status of their business. The transaction history of the MSME initiation is a guarantee of business feasibility to access various business solutions.
Having a community to share knowledge and insights about the blockchain world surely develop a valuable network. Therefore, we came up with an idea to gather all blockchain enthusiasts in our event, the BlockClinic 1.0, to encourage all participants to think critically and get insights about the crypto world. This bi-weekly event is hosted and organized by our community program, BlockLab Indonesia. In our events, we bring together business professionals, blockchain enthusiasts, academics, and those who are interested in entering the world of blockchain by learning together.Continue reading “The 4th Industrial Revolution from the Perspective of Business Model”

Tokoin.io – To support smooth flows in a business model, a proper ecosystem is needed. Related to this, a B2B ecosystem constitutes an order of arrangement to convey the experience of distributing values from one participant to another. Each participant holds a determining role in order to keep the ecosystem fruitful to every business involved.
Iansiti and Levien (2004) compared a business ecosystem to a biological ecosystem and maintained that:
“…a biological ecosystem provides a powerful analogy for understanding a business network. And like business network participants, biological species in ecosystems share their fate with each other. If the ecosystem is healthy, individual species thrive. If the ecosystem is unhealthy, individual species suffer deeply. And as with business ecosystems, reversals in overall ecosystem health can happen very quickly.”(Iansiti & Levien 2004, 8–9)
Analogous to a biological ecosystem, a B2B ecosystem works by involving two-way interactions between all participants in an environment in favor of mutual growth and evolution of populations in the forms of commensalism, competition, and mutualism. The concept of a healthy ecosystem is outlined by the contribution of every main organism involved. The roles of the organisms as the main partakers can be seen as a supply chain from one end to another. Manufacturers as producers in the upstream provide their goods to resellers in the downstream without any destabilizing interruption in pricing and market overview. By excluding sales intermediaries and individual buyers, the supply chain goes directly from upstream to downstream through efficient data distribution and a precise targeting on a methodical platform.
The interaction forms a mutual relationship since the resellers, as business buyers, need the lowest prices possible and manufacturers desire to know the actual market situations prior to product innovation and development. The mutual needs can be fulfilled in a well-ordered manner of data provision. The adaptation of blockchain technology in a B2B ecosystem is seen as an applicable solution to disrupt the traditional supply chain which typically includes layers of intermediaries. Resellers can quote directly to the producers to get the lowest prices, simultaneously generating real-time and actual data pertaining to the market overview producers.
Implementing the above system on a marketplace, Tokoin provides the shortest way for business participants to connect without layers of intermediaries. In order to build an ecosystem consisting of valuable assets, Tokoin is developing a blockchain-powered platform to equip every participant with security in every transaction and a more trustworthy relationship, resulting in a valuable partnership between partakers.
The blockchain platform enables data exchange in a decentralized manner. There is no central entity collecting data. Instead, data will be securely and immutably stored, eliminating any kind of data abuse and manipulation, as well as creating an ecosystem of organisms that are linked together in a mutual way. Concurrently, new generations of business customers are conditioned to emerge on the platform.
