How To Buy Populous and Sell PPT Online30th May 2019
What is Populous (PPT)?
Populous is a peer-to-peer platform that uses the blockchain to provide small and medium-sized enterprises (SME’s) a more efficient way to participate in invoice financing. Late invoice payments cost small businesses in the uK over $2bn a year in fees and missed opportunities according to the Independent. Using invoice financing, businesses can sell their outstanding invoices at a discount to quickly free up some cash.
On Populous, buyers and sellers exchange invoices using smart contracts. Populous uses blockchain technology, the Altman Z-score formula and XBRL data to create a better system.
Populous analyses the credit risk of invoices by using a financial modelling tool called the Altman Z-score formula on the real time XBRL (eXstensible Business Reporting Language) data.
The Three Tokens
- Pokens – internal currency of the platform. Each Poken is pegged directly to the equivalent amount of fiat currency and these are what are used to purchase invoices.
- PPT (Populous Platform Token) – these were distributed during the ICO and are primarily investment vehicles.
- PXT (Populous XBRL Token) – spent to access the Business Intelligence data on the Populous XBRL Platform (PXP). This gives you access to over one petabyte of data that the network houses.
