Global commerce is burdened by unreliable and largely manual paper-based
processes characterized by a lack of transparency and an absence of secure,
trusted information. As a result, suppliers, buyers, and transporters involved
in international transactions suffer cash flow delays, payment disputes,
and difficulty in maintaining liquidity. However, the advent of blockchain
technology can eliminate these difficulties, ensuring the validity and security
of transactions involved in the global movement of goods and delivery of
services. Moreover, by automating payment methods such as letters of
credit, it can eliminate inefficiencies, streamline business processes, reduce
operational complexity, and reduce transaction costs.
The PrepayWay’s mission is to remove the aforementioned burden by
integrating decentralized blockchain and self-executing smart contracts
with business processes to introduce a new paradigm in international
commerce. Specifically, PrepayWay offers the following:
legally binding contract templates developed by legal experts in accordance with the appropriate national laws and regulations and translated
into multiple languages;
self-executing smart contracts containing coded terms and conditions
of the contracts;
an integrated gateway for digital and fiat currency transactions powered
by licensed escrow partners;
cross-border decentralized financing solution;
secure storage of records of smart contracts and transactions on a
efficient and enforceable dispute resolution by SmartArb, the
International Smart Mediation and Arbitration Institute.
No single company can unlock the potential of blockchain alone. The
PrepayWay Blockchain Ecosystem integrates blockchain with existing
business functions, leveraging it to generate value and accelerate growth.
The resultant synergy will result in opportunities for strategic partnerships
and access to innovative technology.
Businesses from various industries join PrepayWay Blockchain Ecosystem
and integrate the blockchain technology with their traditional business
processes, creating and by developing tailor-made innovative business
solutions to suit specific requirements and address specific needs. Every
solution developed by PrepayWay smoothly integrates the core elements
of PrepayWay Blockchain Ecosystem with traditional business processes.
Driven by the token economy, our self-evolving Ecosystem will continue to
grow and develop.

Smart Mediation and
Cross-border decentralized financing
PrepayWay provides standardized yet customizable legal and enforceable
contract templates prepared by legal experts and translated into multiple
languages. Instead of employing lawyers and translators and spending
significant amounts of time and money preparing contracts and writing
up terms and conditions, trade-related contracts can be easily created
and signed on our online platform, recorded on the blockchain, and
easily referenced along with other transaction details. Transparency and
trust accelerate the speed of transactions, reduce transaction costs, and
minimize the likelihood of fraud. The frequency of disputes is also significantly reduced.
Once signed, the agreement is saved in three formats: a signed and
encrypted document, data in the database, and smart contract variables.
The terms and conditions of the contract are coded in a smart contract –
a self-executing set of codes that contains electronic clauses that trigger
processes according to the contract’s terms and conditions.
A smart contract activation fee is payable either in InBit tokens or by
traditional payment methods. An activated smart contract sends out
contract orders, and parties then fulfill their contractual obligations. As
soon as proof of fulfillment is uploaded, the smart contract validates this
proof and releases funds according to the contract’s terms and conditions.
Should a dispute arise, the smart contract is “frozen” until an independent arbitrator’s decision is issued. The smart contract is then automatically
executed in accordance with the arbitral award.
With our smart contracts, suppliers are assured that buyers will not default
on payment and that they will be paid. Likewise, buyers do not have to worry
about paying the supplier or about not receiving their order in time.

PrepayWay Real Estate MVP
PrepayWay Real Estate is an online contracting and escrow tool that makes the real estate reservation process direct, flexible, transparent, and secure. It minimizes need for trusted intermediaries and prevents fraud losses. Use our valid contract templates to draw up contracts, sign them digitally, choose between fiat and digital currencies, and enjoy full protection of your reservation deposit stored securely on the blockchain.
Benefits for market participants:
There is no need to be physically present at the location of your dream real estate.
Clients can reserve properties safely and fast from the comfort of their own home.
Our legal agreement templates in multiple languages save time and money that would otherwise be spent on translations and lawyers.
Transactions in both fiat and digital currency are supported.
Security of earnest money deposit. If the property is not as described, or the deal falls through the fault of the seller, the earnest money is automatically returned to the buyer.
Efficient dispute resolution. Our network of independent certified mediators and arbitrators deliver fair mediation and arbitration services remotely, quicker and less expensive than litigation.
As it is an MVP (MVP stands for a “minimum viable product” – a product with just enough features to satisfy early customers and to provide feedback for future product development), the following functionalities will be implemented at the later stages:
Smart-contract functionality. Smart contracts will be implemented to ensure security of deposits. Smart contracts initiate the release of the deposit automatically only when the contractual terms and conditions are met (upon confirmation of notarial transaction in case of purchase or upon the tenant getting access to the property in case of rent).
Possibility of global collaboration. Our platform will allow real estate agencies who never did business with each other before to enter into partnerships for referral of clients. Through PrepayWay, brokers and other market participants around the world will exchange information about available properties and refer clients to each other with confidence.
Automated referral commission payments. Real estate agencies can build networks and safe partnerships with like-minded professionals abroad with commissions for referrals transferred automatically. Self-executing smart contracts verify and trigger commission payments once conditions of the agreement have been met.
Country-specific legal templates. In all the regions where we will operate our users will have a possibility to conclude a reservation agreement using the language that they understand*.
Multilingual country-specific legal templates
Our legal partner network will prepare a set of agreements for all supported regions so that our clients can enjoy safe, fast, and convenient process of real estate reservation.
Fiat-crypto gateway framework
Our users will have a possibility to safely use fiat money for concluding smart contact based agreements without any risk of cryptocurrency rate fluctuations. The framework will allow traditional businesses to benefit from smart contracts: from an end-user perspective it will look like a pure fiat-fiat agreement.
Crypto-crypto gateway framework
Our users will benefit from a possibility to conclude a reservation agreement in a variety of cryptocurrencies, not limited to InBit or Ether.
Fundraising stage 2
Next equity fundraising rounds are planned for the further development of the products: PrepayWay Real Estate, Elleeo, SmartArb, and Global Trade. Terms, conditions and possibilities of investment will be published on our official webpage.

SmartArb regional offices in EMEA, APJ, NCSA
SmartArb will open regional offices in all the three regions in order to be able to offer its services globally.
Further Development (strategic long-term overview)
PrepayWay Real Estate
One of the directions for strategic development the company is considering at the moment is the creation of APIs/plugins for main CMSs/open source platform for real estate professionals for the management of properties for sale/rent. Clients will have a choice to either create their own website or integrate into the existing one. Brokers who work with international real estate will be able to collaborate easily by defining the conditions of collaboration (referral rate) and the specifications of the properties. The platform will show all the properties that match the criteria. The platform will facilitate a smoother reservation process: when all the properties are managed using the same API/Plugin/OSP, a reservation agreement can be created in 2-3 clicks.
We see Elleeo as a place where people can invest and obtain financing in a few simple steps, while having the whole scope of investment/fundraising possibilities at their disposal. It should unify all the investment possibilities available on the market, so it will act as an investor crowdfunding and crowdlending gateway to the main platforms on the market. It is evident to us that the variety of products should be wider: rather than being limited to personal or business long-term loans secured by collaterals, it should include factoring and short-term consumer loans and equity investment. Elleeo will be looking into attracting professional institutions, both investors and service providers in certain regions.
PrepayWay Global Trade
We believe that global trade as a process can be significantly improved. The best case scenario we envision and target is entire international trade deals, from start to finish, facilitated by PrepayWay Ecosystem. We envision a perfect system that, after concluding a contract, offers insurance, reliable carriers, customers brokers, and other supply chain providers, with all the “paperwork” of the process governed by a single contract. This will eliminate the exchange of hundreds of email, bills of lading, letters of credit, etc., since all the participants of the process (which may include more than 30 individuals and organizations) will have a single point of interaction – PrepayWay Global Trade.
We realize that with the coming of new technologies, the ADR process will inevitably evolve. We are committed to dedicating time and resources to R&D in order to improve the current procedures and to develop new approaches to mediation and arbitration, making it more cost and time efficient. In order to achieve that goal, we plan to collaborate with the service developers in order to work out the guidelines/framework for designing new products where dispute submission for ADR would be integrated and done in the most efficient way possible.
Other services integration
We realize that our Ecosystem is far from complete. We are looking into integrating more and more service provides, such as insurance services, financial institutions, carriers, expert agents (oracles), rating agencies, and other service providers.
At this point, no single DLT (distributed ledger technology) exists that would satisfy all the needs of PrepayWay Ecosystem. If by the time that all the core components of the Ecosystem are up and running such technology still does not exist, PrepayWay may look into the development of its own DLT solution.
