Automated transactions for Encrypted Forwarder Receipts of physical metal.

SoftMetal provides participants with automated transactions of the “ENFERUM” (Electronic Non-Fungible Encrypted Receipt for Unit of Metal) representing physical metals that are stored in safe independent warehouses* and whose quality is certified by recognized international surveyors.


Ferrochromium (FeCr), and alloys in general, have multielement mineral composition. Each mineral has its own value and individual importance, and each lot of metal has its own cost of production and value in use.

While Cr(omium) is the main element in ferrochromium and its content is the major contribution of FeCr price, other mineral components of alloy such as Fe(rrum), C(arbon), Si(licon), P(hosphorus), S(ulphur) can vary considerably.

The content of these minerals and CO2 footprint is typically within the range of:
Fe: 25% to 50%
P: 0.01% to 0.05%
C: 0.01% to 9.5%
CO2: Up to 10 MT / MT FeCr

Buyers define which alloy composition they are interested in purchasing.

Competing offers will be shown within the selected range.

Buyers can balance their preference for specific materials with competitiveness and liquidity.

Terms & Conditions

Each transaction requires irrevocable commitment described in SoftMetals T&Cs.

When a seller places an offer on the platform, they are bound to transfer the title to the buyer as soon as the bid matches the parameters of their offer. This commitment is similar to conditional release to yet unknown buyer, traditionally used for offline metal trading, but with the buyer yet to be matched by price and parameters.

When a buyer makes a bid on the platform, they are bound to promptly make payment in FIAT currency (USD).

To simplify the settlement process, SoftMetal will support crypto exchanges as soon as CBDC (Central Bank Digital Currency) or another appropriate cryptocurrency becomes feasible.

Full terms and conditions coming soon.
