How has your company grown and changed since its inception, and what do you have planned for its future?

We were very fortunate to work with a trusted group of pilots when we started the development of our solution, which allowed us to build the product’s features based on their needs. Starting from the pain points businesses face with global trade: outdated trade processes lost paperwork, and delayed payments – our solution sought to streamline these flows and provide a secure, transparent platform for B2B operations. Our early traction with 500+ businesses using our platform confirms that we’re solving a real problem. Through a constant loop of customer feedback, we’re expanding our platform’s capabilities to things like escrow protocols and bidding systems, eventually making us the go-to tokenization and trading system for companies. 

Now, we are targeting the millions of businesses stuck in the past, and we plan to bring in as many as 10,000 by 2026.

What inspired you to develop Nexity Network, and how did you conceive of the idea?

We met in 2018 when I joined Tiberiu on the cloud-based solution he was developing for the automotive industry. At that time, we were working on expanding the customer base in other sectors and geographies. We’ve also been involved in different non-profit projects and invested together in web3 projects. At the beginning of 2021, we decided to find a way to integrate blockchain into companies’ day-to-day operations. Based on our existing customer database, creating a group of pilots was easy, which helped us develop the TradeFi platform based on their needs. The main drive of our spinoff was the deep understanding of how blockchain can help companies reach a high level of transparency, efficiency, and security. Our concerns around the sustainability of supply chains and the overall circularity of the global economy were another factor that contributed to designing an ecosystem around the concept of blockchain-enabled circular supply chains.

Can you provide insight into Nexity Network’s progress by sharing any metrics or milestones indicating its traction?

Based on firsthand experience in the supply chain landscape, we saw how frustrating it was for businesses to get things done. In just three years, we got early traction: over 500 companies across automotive, retail, food & beverage use our solution daily. In 2023, we generated roughly $700K in revenue and achieved $1.9M in monthly trading volume.

By using blockchain to automate and secure trade management flows like contracting, ordering, and b2b payments, businesses can control all operations seamlessly.
