We are developing a blockchain-powered platform that will enable investors to discover, vet, and track low-risk, high-yield investments into third-world countries. Topl’s development is guided by our proposed solutions to the three primary barriers to investing into developing economies: currency controls, a lack of reliable information, and limited contract enforceability. To address these barriers, Topl’s blockchain platform utilizes a fully backed scrip currency native to our platform and employs publicly accessible and cryptographically verifiable historical records, reputation scoring for all participants, and automatically executing smart contracts.
