Smartlink Launches decentralized escrow payments on Tezos Blockchain and announces its own marketplace for crypto users
Smartlink introduces Trust-as-a-Service for web 3.0 through escrow smart contracts to buy and sell products and services.
Cryptocurrency has become the hottest investment vehicle for banks and individuals alike. Megacorporations, institutional investors, and tech leaders are touting the benefits of crypto assets.
Still, that doesn’t quite get at the heart of its true potential in our economy. The primary focus across various industries is on the monetary aspect of cryptocurrencies instead of their technical proficiency, underlying technology, and real-world utility.
Smartlink takes a different approach towards cryptocurrency adoption.

Decentralized Escrow Platform for direct transactions
Smartlink introduces a decentralized escrow solution that allows anyone to seamlessly create enforceable escrow smart contracts to securely buy and sell products and services using cryptocurrencies. Customizable purchase agreements are included in the Smartlink template library, allowing parties to easily define the terms of the sale.
How the Smartlink escrow module works:
- Smartlink platform provides enforceable sales agreements that offer a simple interface to buyers and sellers to fix the terms of the transactions.
- Smartlink holds the funds in an escrow smart contract until the terms of the agreement are met.
- The buyer receives an inspection period to review the product and service before approving the payments.
- Once approved, the escrow smart contract automatically transfers funds to the seller.

- Governance: Users will need SMAK tokens to participate in critical platform decisions, such as adjusting staking and escrow reward APR, development proposals, and revenue strategy.
“We are bringing something new to the payments industry landscape and the opportunity is clearly there. Today, the global online marketplace is tied to PayPal, Stripe, and other traditional payments platforms. What do those solutions have in common? The legacy banking system. Paypal and Visa accepting Bitcoin isn’t innovation. What they do is create wallets. But they’re still a far cry from migrating their customers to blockchain technology and integrating smart contracts. Tokens are reshaping our economic paradigm. We reward users as they use the platform, they can vote on strategic decisions, fees are drastically lower, there’s no chargeback, everything is more secure, faster, and simple.”
Ben Constanty, CEO and co-founder of Smartlink
