Tokenization in agribusiness opens doors for family farming on the capital market!

The tokenized economy is an increasingly present reality on the world stage, the success of the technology is indisputable proof with impressive figures and tokenization in agribusiness is one of the main markets.

To give us an idea of the token’s potential in business, it is estimated that in 2030 the tokenization of assets will generate around US$ 16 trillion, equivalent to a country with the 3rd largest GDP in the world and almost 8 times the current Brazilian GDP.

If we consider that the GDP of agriculture represents a quarter of the Brazilian economy, it’s easy to imagine the potential that tokens have for crops and livestock.

But is tokenizing agriculture just for big companies? Can family farming, which according to the Family Statistics Yearbook 2023 represents 77% of the Brazilian market, benefit?


BLOCKBR, a company that develops tokenization infrastructure, will show how the token works in agribusiness and how it is revolutionizing efficiency and profitability in the field!


Despite accounting for 77% of agribusiness turnover, family farming businesses face major obstacles to growth and sustainability, and the impacts on the cycle of planting, harvesting and selling the crop are more intense.

  • Extreme weather changes are unfortunately becoming recurrent and causing more severe impacts on the production and finances of family farmers, who have little reserve to deal with major losses;
  • Credit is essential for financial support and family farmers have a harder time with high interest rates, low guarantees and excessive bureaucracy. The fall in the Selic rate reduces the cost of finance, but small farmers benefit little;
  • Commodity prices are pegged to the exchange rate, exchange rate losses are more keenly felt and medium- and long-term financial planning is more challenging.

With these and other obstacles, accumulating capital for financial protection and investing in new projects is more difficult in family farming, leaving it even more vulnerable to risks.

Agricultural tokenization is a consistent opportunity to raise funds, position yourself better in the market and increase turnover.


For most people, tokenization is a complex concept far removed from RWA (real-world assets) and this is an idea created from cryptocurrencies and the legal issues they raise.

Asset tokenization, however, follows a completely different path, as it is not a monetary reserve or asset in itself, but an efficient and secure way of trading goods, rights and projects.

In short, it involves offering tangible and intangible assets represented by digital files – the transactional token – to the market on sales platforms such as the one provided by BLOCKBR.

It’s an operation with a number of advantages:

  • Effective governance and transparency;
  • High data and transaction security;
  • Reduced costs;
  • Prevention of human error and fraud;
  • No intermediaries;
  • Greater profitability for the asset owner and investors.

Tokenization in agribusiness technically follows the same principle as in other markets: offering real and financial assets and business projects with greater agility, security and a differential that does not exist in traditional means of business: the fractioning of assets.

The asset is divided into quotas of tokens that can number in the thousands – the ideal quantity is defined in the technical feasibility study that the tokenization company draws up at the start of the process together with the asset holder.

This feature democratizes the offer with lower prices, attracts more public and consequently:

  • It boosts the visibility of the offer;
  • Increases liquidity with more demand in less time;
  • Improves profitability – the owner of the asset can charge a higher unit price and earn more on volume.

As an example, a tokenized cocoa crop with a market value of R$1 million can be split into a thousand tokens of R$1,100 each, for a total of R$1.1 million.




It covers land, buildings, installations, agricultural machinery, equipment, crops, receivables and other assets. It is the most visible part of a company and can be split up, which encourages small investors to enter agribusiness.

It is worth noting that investing in tokens does not mean owning the asset. Most businesses follow the model of participation with the right to profits, as is the case with the stock market and real estate funds.


Blockchain-based smart contracts are designed to automate and guarantee the execution of contracts and agreements in agricultural transactions, such as the leasing of land, the supply of agricultural products and others.

It is an excellent alternative for increasing the internal efficiency of processes, reducing failures and delays that generate fines and increasing the company’s credibility in the market.

There are other business models in which family farmers can use tokenization to increase turnover, improve financial health and management quality. You can count on BLOCKBR’s tokenization infrastructure to evaluate and propose a customized project.

The principle of democratizing access not only applies to opening up businesses to small investors, but also to opening up markets for family businesses.

By raising funds from the return on its assets, the company is able to enable and anticipate its investments to increase production or expand the business.

In the case of fractional properties, the offer can be for an idle tokenized property on which the shareholders will earn full or partial rent, or it can be for a new property in tokens so that the company can expand its production capacity and distribute part of the earnings.

Another aspect of great importance is the positioning of family farming in the market with the use of innovation in management and the ability to attract investors in an innovative way.

Last but not least, we know that family farmers represent a major force for regional consumption, for leveraging large businesses through the partnership model and for generating local jobs.

The rise of family farming is crucial for the development of the region and improvements in society’s quality of life.
