We're seeking to disrupt three key growth sectors. Remittance, cryptocurrencies and challenger bank market. Combined these markets are more than $600bn.
• We started this mission when we understood the magnitude and impact that blockchain technology, cryptocurrencies, and digital challenger banks were going to have on our day to day lives and the future of monetary system as we know it.
• As early adapters of blockchain technology, we understood the benefits, however, we struggled to understand why this technology had not been implemented and integrated into our day to day lives. We want to change this and bring the technology to the fingertips of more people globally.
• We quickly realised that there was a lack of solutions in the current market that was user-friendly and innovative. This is where we saw the gap and the opportunity.
• It's our mission to make it easier for new entrants to gain access to the cryptocurrency market using a user-friendly approach.
