ABOUT

WHATS IN A NAME?

Cartel: kärˈtel

An association of manufacturers or suppliers with the purpose of maintaining prices at a high level and restricting competition.

What is cartel coin?

Cartel Chain is a forward-looking iterative blockchain project, single-minded in its initiative to streamline e-commerce via an “ease of use” exchange, powered by a robust compendium of tailored smart contracts, delivered on a trustless chain.

What does it solve?

Due in large part to valueless intermediaries as gatekeepers, the distribution of consumer goods is fragmented, disjointed and in desperate need of consolidation. By deploying smart contracts and exploiting the transparent and secure nature of the blockchain, Cartel Chain can remove the glaring inefficiencies in the supply chain and bridge the existing divide between manufacturers and consumers.

Our vision!

The company envisions a seamless e-commerce continuum wherein a zero-knowledge protocol exists between buyers and sellers alike in a trustless, secure environment.

TRADITIONAL MODEL

THE BIG PROBLEM!

FACTORY

Acquires raw materials, produces a product, adds on margin.

SHIPPING

Pickup costs, taxes and shipping and import costs.

DISTRIBUTOR

Marketing and branding costs, paying for his employees, etc, adding on margins.

TRUCKING

Adds on carrying costs pays for fuel and labor.

WHOLESALER

The wholesaler buys and sells in large volumes to smaller retailers.

COURIER

Delivers smaller shipments to each retailer.

RETAILER

CONSUMER

THE CARTEL EFFECT!

Millions of users from around the world all collectively buy simultaneously via Cartel from the comfort of their own home. Goods are sent directly from the manufacturer at a fraction of the price, less of the planets resources are consumed. We all enjoy the products we need and want at the fairest possible price, savings thousands!
