Platform update: Industries
Debitum Network 1.0 Abra receives a new feature – Industries.
Industries attribute was added to each asset. Industries attribute also will be visible in Asset list. This attribute will allow Investors to perform more precise analysis, search of attractive assets. It will also improve filtering functionality, statistics numbers, and assets grouping possibilities.
Current list of Industry definitions is not a final one. We are starting with 16 possible industry names. We believe that this list will be handy for Investors to use and will cover major if not all activities of Borrowers. You can have a look at full industries list here:
