About Us

We are a technology company, dedicated to providing a physical oil marketplace powered by a proprietary blockchain to enable independent crude oil producers to access a global market for the marketing and sale of their production; allowing buyers to access production that would otherwise be inaccessible or uneconomic to acquire or trade.


By marketing physical commodities on a blockchain solution, producers, traders and consumers benefit from faster exchange of trade conditions, improved data integrity, and enhanced reliability with all records verified in real-time.

This decentralized and highly scalable platform connects buyers and sellers in a seamless manner from purchase to delivery and payment. This results in the creation of a versatile digital environment for commodities transactions for sovereign, industrial and corporate purchasers with access for speculative investors.
