Additional use cases of the BMK in the near future


BMK is required to make the marketplace function, programmatic access - (e.g. recruitment of new users, operations and additional functionality on the marketplace)


For all funded projects BMK will become the primary payment method, e.g each successful project listed on our marketplace will benefit from services provided through BMK. It will also used as the base currency to provide peer to peer loans through the Benchmark Finance Company in various companies and as a means of exchange for payments between various ring-fenced companies

New product development

In the future, in order to increase BMK adoption we will see the creation of the Benchmark wallet and Benchmark ATMS to serve employees and customers at major Benchmark installations


Potential for off-chain integrations (e.g. M-Pesa)


Access to marketplace and entry fee when launching a new project, access to additional membership tools and early access to new projects


Projects you can participate in
- with more to come

Participate with us in numerous scalable, ring fenced projects in cutting edge Fintech and in Planet Friendly Recycling, 360-degree green building and renewable energy. Be involved for the long term through Real Estate Investment Trusts.
Benchmark Finance Company
Teaching the unbanked majority to be financially literate and how to become savers, entrepreneurs and sophisticated investors.
Key fact
Businesslike but affordable finance options at the lower end of the market through the proven principles of the Grameen Bank model.
Material Recycling Facility
Our first proposed Material Recycling Facility will be in Alexandra near Johannesburg, South Africa. This is a highly profitable business in which most of your input material comes with a payment from the parties delivering the material because the business represents the only viable alternative to dumping in a landfill.
Key fact
Practically unlimited supply of suitable waste material delivered to site at no charge. Excellent labour supply in an adjoining township. Solves a major environmental problem.
REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust)
Participate in profitable, prime real estate at very low cost. Strong cash flow advantages at minimal risk.
Key fact
We make green building materials, we develop the properties and then together we own them through a REIT.
Benchmark Crypto Hedge Fund
Benchmark aims to start a new cryptocurrency hedge fund that will execute value enhancement activities for the BMK community and ensure demand for the Token.
Key fact
Last year, Crypto Hedge Funds globally produced an average return of 1,000 per cent on all funds (Source: Bloomberg)
The Benchmark Trading Exchange
Part of an ecosystem of white label crypto exchanges designed to create a network of multiple venues that utilises the synergies of a unified liquidity pool.
Key fact
Holders of Benchmark Utility Tokens will enjoy savings in fees when they join a Benchmark Crypto Exchange. Benchmark Crypto Exchanges will be decentralized exchanges, able to individually comply with the laws of various countries while being supported by the liquidity of a common orderbook and centralized trading engine. Entry into the market will be at much lower cost than what would be the case if an exchange was to be developed from scratch. This also makes it possible to deploy multiple exchanges in various countries very rapidly and thus gain a competitive advantage in the market.
