KNL tokenization platform is the digitization of grain assets, real estate and property



The very first business man was recorded to have taken part in is agriculture. It's is a practice as old as man and thus man has perfected the art. On analysis carried out by the UN, from the year 2000 to 2016 agricultural exchange commodities has increased three times its original status: it raised from about $570 bn to $1.6trillion. The larger fraction of this is contributed by developing countries due to the fact that they have a rapid growth of per capita income and there is an increase in demand for food.

Even with the fast growth of the market, agricultural products' trade still faces a lot of serious problems. For example a slight change in the climate could reduce the agricultural production by about 10%. This no doubt is a serious problem. So the next thought would be how does one preserve agricultural products and prevent their wastage. This could be done by providing modernized industries and innovations that would safeguard these products. But all these require finance.


  • The standard method of fund acquisition is via bank loan. But this faces many drawbacks which may include:
  • Apart from the farm land the farmer owns no other collateral.
  • The value of said land doesn't increase with time.
  • The little collateral which could be put forward are mostly undervalued by the banks so as to minimize riisks.
  • The acqired funds via loans are not enough for the farmer to expand or acquire advanced equipments.
  • The acquired loan isnt even enough for normal activities thus the farmer have to sell his products are a far lesser rate to make up.
  • There is also the burden of loan payment


Agricultural market

The biggest contribution to the world market growth is made by developing countries. Because of the fact that they have a rapid growth of per capita income, the result of it is an increase in demand for food. This way, in India in the period from 2000 to 2015 revenues increased more than twofold, and in China – up to four times. Despite the rapid market growth, agricultural products’ trade is related to several serious issues that are worsened by current climate change.

Classical funding

For issuing a loan a collateral is needed. As collateral can be accepted only land, transport, and real estate. One can’t pledge stock – in – trades as collateral.
Land cost calculation and other collateral assets are made on a yearly basis using the same principle, so that’s why the total loan value is the same each time.
Producers don’t have the opportunity to get a correct and up – to – date appraisal of their property, so as a result, banks undervalue the collateral assets in order to minimize their risks.
The obtained funds are not enough to expand the area under crops or purchase more modern high – performance equipment.The agriculture potential development isn’t realized due to lack of funds.
