Overview of Rate3

  • Rate3 engineers did the community proud when they came in as a top 6 finalist (the highest accolade awarded) at the inaugural ETHSingapore Hackathon 2018, impressing judges that included Vitalik Buterin and Loi Luu with their DAI-ly submission which they created in a mere 36 hours.
  • Rate3 began its blockchain journey predominantly as a cross-border payments protocol, leveraging on its team’s experience in operating RateX – a fintech startup enabling users to save on bank FX fees while shopping cross-border at merchants which include Amazon and Taobao.
  • Rate3 wants to solve the three biggest problems in the current cross-borders payment space through the release of a new payment token, $RTE, that facilitates all transactions between all players in the e-commerce space efficiently, cheaply and quickly.
  • Rate3 was truly ahead of its time as there still exists a vast gap between the current "fiat reality" with that of an ideal "blockchain nirvana," preventing enterprises from adopting blockchain technologies effectively.
  • Rate3 (RTE) will be built on the Stellar network, leveraging on its low transaction costs, fast transaction speeds and decentralised distributed exchange over common blockchain platforms like Bitcoin and Etherum.
  • Rate3 is currently built to be interoperable with both the Ethereum and Stellar public blockchain ecosystems (with more planned for the future), enabling it to draw on the key unique value propositions of each.
  • Rate3 successfully completed its RTE token sale in May 2018 with thought-leaders such Matrix Partners China, Signum Capital, Node Capital, Fenbushi Digital and FBG Capital leading the round.
  • Rate3 has a proven track record of success with RateX and RateS, browser and mobile extensions designed to enhance the ease with which a consumer can shop online, while also saving money.
  • Rate3, a decentralized dual protocol for cross-chain asset tokenization and identity management, has now exhibited their cross-chain swap service live on testnet.
  • Rate3 (CURRENCY:RTE) traded up 4.6% against the dollar during the one day period ending at 7:00 AM E.T.

    From ICO to an expanding Rate3 community and team, exchanges and partnerships, tech developments and achievements, to launching SGDR — the first use case for Rate3 Network; Rate3 has come a long way.The past achievements would not be possible if not for the community members who have been supportive of us all this time; thank you, and we dedicate the team’s achievements to you.Upcoming major project updates will be released in early Q1, and we look forward to having you alongside use as we continue journeying down the road to creating a connected tokenized world!


    Each token holder gains peace of mind from the knowledge that a reputable, government-licensed trust company is guaranteeing the redeemability of the tokens they own for the backing asset, and that they are entitled to legal recourse should these ownership rights not be fulfilled.Rate3 also complies strictly with local regulations based on guidance provided by legal advisors.Rate3 works closely with licensed, independent trust companies to provide absolute legal guarantees on asset ownership rights for token holders.Such a model ensures full transparency and confidence in any asset token of this protocol.


    Even as we ring the bells to herald the new year and gear up for more exciting developments, it is also a time to reflect and highlight what Rate3 has accomplished over the past year with the unwavering support from our community members, before we forge on and delve deeper into more lines of code in the upcoming months.Here we are in 2019; 11 months have passed since Rate3’s inception, and almost half a year since we embarked on a new beginning.


    A financial infrastructure that can support how the Internet will continue to grow is necessary.aim to create a globally portable and inclusive credit profile, thus reducing the need for opaque credit scores and unnecessary documentation required for credit applications.As a result, they often have to rely on alternative financial institutions like pawnshops or loan sharks for payday loans where interest rates can be as unreasonably high as 100% APR per year.Welcome to Rate 3 (RTE)aim to create a new global e-commerce ecosystem that ties consumers, merchants, suppliers and other intermediaries together with a native cryptocurrency that facilitates all transactions efficiently, cheaply and quickly.Rate3 (RTE) is a new payment token built on the Stellar horizon network.As a result, this process typically takes 15 to 60 days for completion.Both consumers and merchants can rate each other better and resolve claims or manage conflict in a transparent way.By building on the transactions recorded in the blockchain ledgers, introducting new identity attesters, consolidating new data sets such as mobile top-ups or remittance transactions and even peer scoring, we can extend necessary credit to more participants in SEA.By building on top of the Stellar network, we leverage on the key strengths of Stellar: significantly cheaper transaction costs, faster transaction speeds and a truly decentralized distributed exchange.There would be no gas fee for program executions and only a negligible transaction fee (0.00001 XLM — a fraction of a fraction of a penny) is required.By decentralizing trust, fraud from the consumer side would be less likely to happen and merchants are more beholden to provide the products or services as advertised and in good condition.Third, incentivizing consumers for their online purchases will be easier for merchants.By using Stellar, Rate3 also enjoys low latency rates in transactions.Consumers, on the other hand, do not have to pay unfavorable exchange rate conversion fees.Currency conversion fees are minimal, if not none at all.Currently, merchants have to ensure that it is a verified purchase with no risk of chargeback or fraud before they pass on the cashback savings through third party affiliate players.first product, RateX is a desktop browser extension that helps consumers pay the mid-market exchange rates, as opposed to exorbitantly high bank rates, saving them up to 10–20% on overseas purchases.For example, merchants will be able to offer instant cashback to consumers or immediately incentivize loyal customers with points, which they can then spend on other products on the merchants we partnered with.For overseas purchases, consumers usually pay additional fees amounting to 3–5% on top of the original purchase amount.For subsequent offers placed at the same price, earlier offers are filled before the newer ones.The Rate3 SolutionFirst, it is cheaper and faster for both merchants and consumers if a single unified token of exchange is used.have helped consumers save over US$200,000 in cross-border payment fees and more than half a million dollars saved on coupon discounts.The intersection between payments and e-commerce is an interesting one.hope you can join us today in our mission.However, as a trade-off for ensuring the integrity and security of financial transactions, financial institutions have constantly hampered innovation and growth.A financial network should be fair, transparent, efficient and inclusive, unlike ours today: 1.However, by and large, the Stellar network is the best for our use case currently.However, if your offer is not complemented by an existing offer in the network, your offer is saved in the orderbook until it is either taken by another offer, taken by a payment, canceled by the account that created the offer, or invalidated because the account making the offer no longer has the asset for sale.If a prior offer exists to sell 10 RTE for 2 ETH, your original offer will be accepted as a transaction — you’ll be 2 ETH poorer but 10 RTE richer.If it does not, we will explore other protocols.In eradicating most intermediaries in the process, we make it up to 5 times cheaper and 1000 times faster for consumers and merchants to transfer and accept payments with Rate3.Second, every transaction will be properly stored on the blockchain ledger and no one can tamper with these transaction ledgers.In Rate3’s case, cashback is instant and verified— a truly disruptive method in the e-commerce landscape today.Last and fundamentally, the Rate3 ecosystem will serve those currently disenfranchised by the financial systems in SEA.It takes an average of 5 seconds to process a transaction with Rate3, compared to the current 3.5 minutes on Ethereum.Most importantly, Rate3 will be able to facilitate the exchange of different assets easily.Let’s say that you make an offer to buy 10 RTE for 2 ETH.Likewise, for merchants, consumer fraud is another huge problem: card fraud is expected to rise to US$31.7 billion by 2020, with 92% of online merchants maintaining that fraud will remain a prime concern for online payments.3.Likewise, merchants who receive the payments have to pay 2–5% in transaction processing fees and some have to wait 2–3 days for the funds to reach their account.2.live in a global society today but our financial systems are not global: it is inefficient, costly and exclusive.have gotten the support of various institutional funds and angel investors, but really, we are just starting our journey of envisioning and creating a new 21st e-commerce and payment ecosystem.Merchants pay minimal processing fees.On top of that, we built additional features into the extension, such as a coupon code aggregator that allows online shoppers to apply the best coupon codes for any purchase in a single click.second product is our mobile app RateS, built to cater to the increasingly mobile consumers in SEA.On top of the features we have in RateX, RateS has an additional element of deals discovery and social shopping.team has lived and breathed this space for years, while experiencing the challenges first-hand during our stint at Silicon Valley & New York City.The payment network today is far from perfect.The process will be seamless, instant and easy — much more efficient than the traditional method.The reputation systems in current online marketplaces try to partially address the problem through user ratings alone, but this system is highly subject to abuse and fraud and it is typically not transferable to other marketplaces or contexts.There are no reliable methods to assess the trustworthiness of buyers and sellers.There is selective and deliberate exclusion from our financial systems today.This is especially prevalent and obvious in Southeast Asia (SEA): 73% of the 600 million SEA residents have no formal access to financial institutions.This is on the conditions that Stellar can fulfil their mission as their network ability scales further.This is where Rate3 helps traditional lenders issue credit for our token users: an end to end protocol eventually to serve billions of people.This leaves about 400 million people in the region without a bank account, preventing them from saving, borrowing or investing money properly.Through our own experiences, we learnt how the existing issues run deeper than we thought.Together, we have facilitated purchases amounting to millions in GMV.Transaction costs and time — especially for cross-border payments — are excessive and inefficient.will move deeper into this in subsequent articles.We’ve built two products in the payments space thus far.
