Team

We are passionate about decentralization and work together from all around the globe. The platform we are building will disrupt many of the existing financial instruments we are used to today. We believe that trustless and decentralized structures must be put in place to empower individuals. This can only now truly be achieved for the first time with bitcoin & digital assets.

True to our core philosophy of openness and transparency, we have made our infrastructure & work flows open-source to encourage and engage the brightest minds to contribute.
