Philosophy

In our society, when SMEs do business with each other, they do not trust each other as there is information asymmetry issue and there is no trustworthy source of information that SMEs can rely on.

As a result of this lack of trust, our society tends to place most of its trust mainly in those central authorities such as banks and large corporations. In this process, we also give these central authorities our economic power. Hence, large corporations and banks dominate our society .

Vision

The vision of ProsperChain is to help SMEs build transparent credit profiles on blockchain and decentralise the economic power in order to reduce the gap between the rich and poor in our society.
