Do you know what’s going on in the business-to-business (B2B) markets of today? All of the biggest deals are made in this space among price insensitive companies armed with large corporate budgets and no fear of depleting them. These markets present serious opportunities to entrepreneurs and investors paying attention to the problems companies are facing. The rise of blockchain technology looks to benefit both the B2B end users and the developers creating these applications in a big way.
TraDove is an upcoming blockchain startup that looks to unlock corporate demand for a token based B2B marketing, sales, and trade platform. TraDove has recognized a clear opportunity in the business-to-business markets where needs are not yet being realized. TraDove has built a matchmaking platform for connecting potential business partners in a secure transparent environment using blockchain technology.
The Current B2B Landscape: Finding a Partner
Finding high quality business relationships online today is much like trying to find the third-floor bathroom in complete darkness at a house you’ve never to before. There is a lot of stumbling, and you don’t exactly know where you’re at, but there’s hope you accidentally find the right door. LinkedIn profiles can be faked, social media followers can be bought, and photos can be stolen. There is no real way to ensure you’re not getting scammed in today’s online environment, and if you do end up falling victim, there’s often little you can do about it.
This is where TraDove comes in. TraDove is a social network that connects corporate buyers, sellers, products, services, and companies. Using the TraDove platform any company can market and advertise to another business in a precise, targeted way. Finding the right suppliers for your business traditionally required a long vetting process, but not anymore. TraDove uses the blockchain to offer complete transparency to both suppliers and buyers on the network. Both parties can easily verify the credentials of their potential business partner, ensuring they are who they claim to be.
Highly Credentialed Company With a Completed Produce
The blockchain startup space is riddled with promising whitepapers from businesses who haven’t yet shipped any code whatsoever. That’s not the case for TraDove. TraDove has already launched their business social network five years ago! The network is home to over 250,000 corporates users and 100,000+ companies spanning over 80 unique countries. Pepsi, Starbucks, Huawei, Nestle, and Wal-Mart are just a handful of participating brand names using the TraDove product.
This shouldn’t come as much of surprise once you have a look at the team behind this project. Take your pick between former Facebook, Alibaba, Amazon, or LinkedIn; this is a star-studded team ready to tackle a big problem in the B2B space. It’s also worth noting the significance of the advisory team; Richard Rosenberg, former chairman and CEO of Bank of America, Phil Duff, former CFO of Morgan Stanley, and Mike Honda, retired US Congressman, are just a handful of the names behind TraDove.
Get Involved: BBCoin Crowd Sale
TraDove’s native token BBCoin will be used to make all forms of transactions throughout the platform empowering buyer and seller interactions. BBCoin is one of the very first B2B-related coin offerings to hit the red hot cryptocurrency markets. The token will significantly reduce the costs and transaction times associated with international payments, very common in supplier-purchaser relationships, among other inherent blockchain benefits, like transparency.
TraDove planned to raise $52,000,000 in a hard-capped token offering. Having raised $40,000,000 so far, the public crowd sale is already more than half-way over. The BBCoin token offering will only continue until February 28th 2018 at the absolute latest. BBCoins are priced at $0.16 USD each, and investors will need to make a purchase of at least $640 USD to participate.
