05. MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDER - Maria Defilla, Founder, mercantus SA
In the business environment dominated by COVID-19 restrictions, it becomes very risky for businesses to enter into traditional debt commitments. Equity financing is scarce to come by. We are sure that revenue-based financing is a very viable alternative in that scenario. Our Revenue-Based Tokens are a good alternative to debt and equity financing for resource producers and traditional businesses. They offer steady income streams to their holders: those streams are formed with a fixed share of income from ventures they finance. Revenue-based financing is more transparent from the business outcome point of view, and is entrepreneur-friendly too. Ventures raise capital through a commitment to remunerate providers of capital from a fixed share of their future output, outlined in a revenue-sharing agreement. It is sometimes also called royalty. The principle of royalty token is based on the long-established practice of royalties in the domain of mineral resources. We believe that this kind of financing can extend far beyond the sector of mining and mineral resources. To be suitable for a revenue-based financing, project output must possess the following characteristics:
• Homogenous product, tangible or intangible, with an applicable unit of measure (example MT, kg, m2, rent per month); or
it must already generate revenue
• Liquid market must exist for this product;
• Some kind of quoted price references should exist for this product;
• Such price references must have statistically significant past price dynamics
• Oil, gas, metals and all other natural resources
• Real estate value chain from construction and rent
• Cryptocurrency mining

Revenue-based financing of your project is a faster and easier capital raising method than traditional debt and equity financing. It attracts a different investor base to the mining and metals sector, it allows to quickly obtain liquidity for traditional businesses. It also may attract totally new classes of investors with wider geography and potentially more investments into your ventures. Revenue-bearing tokens allow for infinite fractioning of a revenue share which further drives liquidity.
