Introducing RIPER — An AgriDeFi Project Built on Top of an Essential Economy

Our Story

Over the past decade, James Yau has been an active participant in the farming space and has been directly involved in the cultivation and set-up of farms, scaling up for marketing, and import/export of products. He has observed that many of his counterparts require tools to help them manage their finances and lessen their worries so they can focus on growing the best produce they can.


RIPER aims to end farmers’ dependency on debt to finance their businesses.


RIPER allows farmers and agri-enterprises to access trade counterparties to boost productivity and competitiveness.

Four Core Pillars

RIPER is committed to democratizing access to the global supply chain between farmers and traders. The trading ecosystem is designed on four core pillars: empowering farmers, facilitating trade, micro financing, and traceability.

1. Empowering Farmers

Providing farmers with a new level of financial control by paying them first. This can assist them pay off their present debt, prevent them going further into debt, enhance cash flow and expand their business if circumstances are suitable to earn higher revenues.

2. Facilitating Trade

The RIPER platform will be constructed to offer a marketplace with sufficient liquidity to support the transactions of both buyers and farmers of perishable items. Buyers benefit from the provision of a longer period of free interest on purchases.

3. Micro Financing

Taking care of up to US$10,000 of farmers’ invoices and giving them access to money so that can help their companies grow. Every invoice is also covered by insurance to help protect against default risks.

4. Traceability

Details of transactions are available to the public while also being safe from tampering. Through this level of transparency, trust in third parties is no longer required, and if issues do develop in a deal, the platform team can track them down and promptly resolve them.
