Modum is a Zurich -based company founded in 2016. It offers next-generation solutions for supply chain intelligence and automation, creating digital ecosystems powered by IoT sensing technology, blockchain-based networks and artificial intelligence for a variety of applications related to monitoring sensitive goods.

In 2017, Modum completed an ICO to raise capital to grow the company and develop its solution. Three years later and triggered by the insecure market conditions, Modum created the world’s first token-equity swap allowing token-holders to exchange their MOD into either cash or participation certificates.


The challenge - A new concept for compliant onboarding 

Because of the market circumstances, Modum needed to change its token model. By offering their token-holders the option to change their tokens into participation certificates or cash. The company needed a reliable and regulated onboarding solution, where token holders could complete the whole onboarding process, including KYC identification, defining the beneficial owner and receiving a personal burn address to trigger the token swap.

The results - A complete digital customer onboarding in less than 3 minutes. 

Modum trusted Moflix with the development of the TokenSwap solution – the first fully digital onboarding platform for exchanging tokenized shares. Users can complete the registration by creating an account, complete the identity verification and receive the burn address for invalidating their tokens via the app.Tokenswap-onboarding

After only 3 months, Moflix was able to build, develop and deliver the TokenSwap solution. The app offers:
  • Onfido integration for KYC with customizations including document and country restrictions

  • Very compact client and backend implementation

  • Connection to Ethereum network

  • Backend generates "burn address" for collecting tokens

  • Remotely configurable UI strings (no app release needed)

"We needed a secure digital on-boarding solution for our token holders so that they could swap their MOD tokens for either cash or participation certificates.
