Our core product is a ledger based on blockchain principles and cryptographic algorithms and with it we want to provide a simple way to bring existing, closed, banking systems to the Internet. Same as the Internet made it possible to connect previously disconnected computer networks, with our ledger we want to build a financial network to connect all the currently closed and disconnected ledgers of the world.

Our goal is to keep the team small to move faster. That is why we hire only the best. We are not looking for specific knowledge or technologies, but a way of thinking and attitude towards making things happen.
