Our mission is to bring trustless applications
to the decentralized web. Smartlink is building
the future of online transactions and sustainable DeFi.
What, who, where.
Smartlink, founded in 2020, was born of a lack of simple and secure global solutions to buy and sell products and services around the world with no risk of losing money to potential fraud and online scams.
Our team is comprised of like-minded entrepreneurs, PhDs, researchers, cryptography experts, financial analysts, and blockchain architects busy building the future of trustless transactions around the world.
Decentralized apps for trustless transactions on Web3
Smartlink is a platform built for a world in need of a safe and efficient space for everyone to buy, sell, and swap without the risk of losing money to online scams and fraud. By leveraging Tezos institutional smart contracts, we are also changing the escrow process.
When the pandemic hit, it highlighted the inefficiencies and faults in the current, outdated transaction model our world relies on. As business partners in an international sourcing company, Smartlink co-founders experienced it first-hand when some of the largest organizations suddenly came to them in need of massive quantities of protective equipment in order to keep business going. The only suppliers producing them fast enough were from factories in Asian countries and weren’t yet known on the supply level, leaving them with big risk decisions to make:
Were they willing to spend millions of dollars to get what their clients needed from an unknown source?
Smartlink was born of a lack of secure online escrow solutions for on-demand needs. At the core of everything, commerce is about providing solutions to real-world needs. That starts with accessibility.
Smartlink is about safeguarding funds during a transaction in a decentralized non-custodial way. It’s a new world. It’s a new marketplace. While too many fall prey to the risks of modern business, Smartlink is the solution many have been waiting for.
We’re pioneering the transactional future of the world. Imagine an online marketplace where you could shop for the things you need from any seller without ever having to think about risks again.
Think of the freedom and possibilities that are opened up.
Buy high-value items from the other side of the globe. Fine jewelry, art, boats, and cars can be bought sight unseen with zero risk. Social media accounts are sold without the risk of identity theft. Freelancers are offering gigs without the hassles of wondering whether they’ll get paid for the work they do.
Secure end-to-end transactions mean anything is possible.
There are no limits to what you can do with your money, starting now.
So will you buy, sell or swap?
