At Mattereum we are shamelessly global in our ambition. Our mission is nothing less than fixing a world that is drowning in goods.
By eliminating transaction risk from on-chain trade of physical assets, our goal is to be a pivotal force in driving sustainability through creating the 21st-century circular economy that we all want to live in.
The Mattereum Protocol uniquely combines digital smart contracts and asset passports for real-world, physical assets with custody, authentication, dispute resolution and transaction warranties.
We are live, on-chain, now.
Smart contracts alone are not legally binding, they are merely a set of instructions.
Mattereum’s Ricardian contracts are legally binding natural language smart contracts that are both human and machine-readable. Electronically signed and recorded on the blockchain they provide the force of law and enable disputes to be resolved through arbitration.
Mattereum’s transaction framework brings trust and liquidity to the world’s off-chain physical asset market valued today at around $280 trillion.
Bringing value across the spectrum, from the most valuable assets to the smallest mote of upcyclable matter, we intend to become an essential component of the DeFi ecosystem.
Enabling trust for Physical Asset NFTs
A Physical Asset NFT is a unique digital token that denotes the right to take physical custody of an object.
While sharing features with the NFTs now gaining popularity in the cultural mainstream of the creative industries, our tokens are different in that they are backed by an underlying physical asset, complete with warranties, insurance, and legal enforceability to create trust in trade.
Mattereum’s unique solution bridges the virtual economy with the physical world and gives rise to incredible capabilities in the realm of finance, commerce and even our quality of life.
By reducing the transaction costs of resale and secondary markets, we are financially incentivizing the production of higher quality, resalable goods and driving a sustainable circular economy.
