How Decentralization Empowers Businesses in Latin America
With UTEMIS all Latin American businesses have the same opportunities to grow that the Chinese had. This is the power of decentralizing economies.
By decentralizing businesses’ reputation on the Ethereum Blockchain, smart contracts automatically compute your behavior on every transaction, accelerating trade for millions of small and mid-sized companies in Latin America.
The Chinese e-commerce giants use an escrow account that protects the buyer. UTEMIS escrow account works in exactly the same way, your money is always protected and if something happens you get 100% of your money back.
Banking transactions in Latin America are extremely expensive, take several days, and are very bureaucratic, with UTEMIS businesses pay instantly, save up to 99% on transaction fees, no banks involved and you are making your money work for you.

WHY A NEW CRYPTOCURRENCY
The UTEMIS cryptocurrency is transforming the entire Latin American continent into a single economic space.
Conduct business in the entire Latin American continent as if it were one country, find new clients and suppliers and evaluate them by their reputation.
Save 99% of the current costs of conducting transactions and payments, no bureaucracy or waste of time and instant payment.
Same as Chinese e-commerce giants, your purchases are 100% protected with UTEMIS escrow account, if something happens you get 100% of your money back.
Trust and reputation are the fuel that drives business growth. By decentralizing their reputation on the Ethereum Blockchain, businesses that are honest will thrive, and those that are not will find themselves driven out from the system. And for the first time ever 100% of this outcome depends on them.
01 / A NEW BEGINNING
UTEMIS uses the latest technology to give everyone a fresh start. A new opportunity to do things right. At UTEMIS everyone has a clean slate – you write your future on the Blockchain. No matter what you did in the past, or where you come from. You can do business now without corruption, save costs, eliminate fraud and avoid bureaucracy and red tape when buying & selling goods in Latin America (also in the U.S. and Canada). You will only pay if you are 100% satisfied with the goods. And your money will always be protected.
02 / SECURE
Blockchain is a foundational technology upon which any system can operate, is a database technology that creates an auditable distributed ledger of transactions recorded digitally among a broad network of users. When used with a cryptocurrency, the Blockchain record can only be updated by consensus of the majority of the participants in a network, and once entered, entries cannot be erased. That means that it can be trusted, you are the only one writing your reputation on the UTEMIS Blockchain.
03 / EASY
A platform to do business that it is easy to use and that is secure. Where you can easily verify potential customers and suppliers’ reputation and where everything is public and on a trustable Blockchain. There are no hidden costs or surprises. No bank fees, no currency exchanges, no delays in payments, nothing. Payments are made instantaneously – and you can withdraw your payment immediately.
Latin America first reputational blockchain with a proven business model that has delivered billions of dollars for the Chinese e-commerce giants. UTEMIS applies the latest technologies to fuel a business model that will become the agent for change for an entire continent.
What if Latin American companies can have a new fresh start regardless of their past? A new opportunity to thrive and prosper like never before. We believe that if small and mid-sized businesses in Latin America have, for the first time ever, the chance to co-create their future, they will create the most economically vibrant, resilient, efficient and fair economic zone in the world.
Blockchain was developed so people that do not know each other can do business together. With no intermediaries and at a minimum cost. Blockchain was originally designed to record economic transactions but it can also be expanded to other forms of transactions. UTEMIS has two Ethereum based blockchains, one for economic transactions and one for reputational transactions. We expand the applicability of the Blockchain.
“By decentralizing businesses reputations for everyone to see and exposing them to new business opportunities we can finally give millions of people the opportunity they deserve.”
