Blokchain is used in a variety of applications where trustworthy computing is
re-quired. Trade finance is one of these areas that would benefit immensely
from a decentralized way of doing transactions. This paper presents the
preliminary as-sessment of Accepire-BT, a software platform developed for the
practice of col-laborative Trade Finance. The proposed solution is enforced by
smart contracts using Solidity, the underlying programming language for the
Ethereum block-chain. We evaluated the performance in the Rinkeby test network
by using Remix and MetaMask. The results of the preliminary trial show that
smart contracts take less than one minute per cycle. Also, we present a
discussion about costs for us-ing the public Ethereum Rinkeby network.
