Beam is a 21st century global payments acceptance platform with built-in support for smart contracts. We created Beam to overturn the status quo in the retail value chain; where stakeholders engage with their customers in a direct, meaningful and effective manner.
The blockchain startup space is brimming with great ideas, many of which have the potential to be highly disruptive and innovative. What makes us different is our track record: we have been building out the Beam Platform since 2011. In that time, we have developed relationships with stakeholders ranging from mom and pop stores to enterprise retailers, brands and distributors such as Carrefour, Costa Coffee, ALDO, Tommy Hilfiger, Unilever, Coca-Cola and many more.
Today Beamâ€™s technical network reach exceeds 400,000 stores globally, with over 5,000 live stores in three continents. Having executed over 4.3 million smart contracts with a total throughput in excess of $250 million, we have proven the benefits of the Beam at scale. Using a token economy specifically built for retail, we are opening up Beamâ€™s proven smart contracts protocol to the world to accelerate our growth globally.
