Their vision is to increase funding for small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) while reducing invoice fraud by transacting on a peer-to-peer blockchain platform. Populous uses two tokens to facilitate the lending and exchange of funds on their platform; Pokens and Populous Platform Tokens (PPT).
Pokens are used internally to purchases invoices on the platform, and they are pegged at a rate of 1:1 to whatever local fiat currency for which they are being exchanged. Pokens and PPT are both ERC-20 standard tokens powered by the Ethereum blockchain.
