A word from our founder and CEO, Richard Olsen
Even since the beginning of my 25-year career in finance, I have felt that the entire financial system needed to be changed. Finance is such a critical part of all social, economic and political life. However, so far the system has only increased inequalities, preserved inefficiencies and fostered differences across societies. Today, more than ever, people feel locked out of, and let down by the financial system. That is about to change. Tokenisation will be the arteries of this new system, allowing every organ of society to access the vital resources that nourish the system, powered by the heart. Tokenisation will democratize finance, granting access to new market participants, introducing new financial products.
