Trading has always been an important aspect of man's life. To some, it's just an exchange of goods and services for money or its equivalent, while for some it's a means of livelihood. Over time, trading has grown even much more due to demands and presence of more commodities in the global market. This and more lead to the creation of e-commerce.

What then is e-commerce?

E-commerce is simply trading using electronic media, thereby making trading easier globally. The introduction of this medium has been a very good and profitable venture for some, although, a number of problems are still being faced. These include transparency issues and fraudulent conducts resulting in the loss for the traders.

Over the years, there has been a significant development in e-commerce leading to the creation of several online trading platforms.

What is an online trading platform did I hear you ask? It, simply, is a computer software program that can be used to place orders for financial products over a network with a financial intermediary. Various financial products can be traded by the trading platform, over a communication network with a financial intermediary or directly between the participants or members of the trading platform. So, how does Catena come in to play in all this?


Catena is a decentralized trading platform that provides a safe, transparent and a total game-changing platform for global trading using a blockchain technology to create a decentralized stage for global trading that would be fraud-proof and help in the growth and development of e-commerce and the global and domestic trading market. Therein creating endless opportunities and possibilities.



Today, the impact of online fraud in the financial sector is undeniable. The first thing that comes to mind when we read a headline about this is the direct financial loss, with good reason. Every year online fraud result in losses in the millions for the financial sector. Fraud can have a substantial impact on a business, no matter what size it is. Internet fraud brings about economic decline globally and domestically.

• Solution Catena provides

Catena employs the solid, concrete and un-disruptable blockchain technology that ensures security and assurance that transactions made on the platform are secure.

Running platform

There are two types of platforms used in global trading, centralized platforms, and decentralized platforms. Centralized platforms involve the concentration of control of an activity or organization under a single authority. Decentralized platforms, on the other hand, describe the design of a network that isn’t managed by a central party. Instead, peer-to-peer interaction drives the network, as no third party is needed. Centralized platforms can be penetrated leading to loss of information, fraudulent activities amongst others.

• Solution Catena provides

Catena runs a decentralized platform using the aforementioned blockchain technology which allows for far more privacy. Because information doesn’t have to go through one point, and can instead pass through a variety of points, it’s much more difficult to track information across the network. Hence, protecting information of the users of the Catena platform.

Making payments can be challenging for global traders due to factors like difference in currencies and effective medium of payments.
