Wine is a global industry with at least a two-thousand-year heritage that today is estimated to be worth more than US $345B.
When most people think about wine, they picture memorable social occasions, vacations in the famous winery regions, and an industry full of wealth.
But behind this veneer is a hard agricultural business with both winners and losers. The winners are all too often an ever-decreasing number of ever-larger players. They deliver volume and consistency for the supermarkets, but the cost can be a sad loss of uniqueness, artistry, and culture.
We are on a mission to make wine trading and investing more accessible for everyone. We are already turning fine wine into NFTs that are being traded through our award-winning fintech platform WiV.io
Producers and collectors can instantly buy, sell and borrow money against their wine through our platform, giving them rapid access to finance without having to endure extensive bureaucratic processes.
WiV will issue a native currency called $WIVA. This will be the foundation for the WiV ecosystem, creating a new, inclusive and borderless economy for physical assets in a digital world.
WiV is building a blockchain infrastructure on the public network, that contains smart contracts and middleware systems. This engine is to be used with the aim of tokenizing assets through a non-fungible token that is 100% wine backed with a token representing a single wine or case of wine.
We have developed a multi-layer platform, where you can tokenize anything NFT. We have an open API and easy to integrate solution for 3rd party marketplaces or exchanges.
All our smart contracts and lines of codes are developed in-house and we own all our IP. So far, we have focused on the Ethereum protocol and Polkadot with their Substrate chain and in April we integrated with Polygon L2.
