In short, we are a blockchain technology company that has started the authorisation process to be a utility bank in the UK. Our tokens will be sold to the public by auction which will determine the token price. Our minimum funding goal is £30m. The total token supply is 1B tokens of which 750M will be available for sale.

We want to enable innovators and future thought leaders to focus more on the quality and strength of their proposition. We will help them do that in two ways.

First, actors in the crypto economy should not have to worry about getting a business bank account or the stress of it being closed at short notice due to unjustified ‘risk’. Having an operational commercial bank account in our opinion is a basic right that should not be denied to crypto companies because they are doing something new. At the same time, the bank model is outdated. We are engineering our utility bank to use blockchain technology and build upon decentralised mechanisms that can remove inefficiencies that exist today.

Second, we want to enable our economy by building a stake and reputation driven platform where credible token projects are incentivised. This DApp aims to reward and support good actors with community consensus and easy to use tools so that innovators can focus more on the quality and strength of their proposition.A utility bank is also known as a clearing bank. In the UK, clearing banks have settlement accounts with the Bank of England. The entire UK payment system settles across these Bank of England accounts. There are currently only seven UK clearing banks.

In the last 250 years, there has only been one clearing bank to enter the UK market. We are looking to further break this monopoly and be the first blockchain technology business to offer clearing. In addition to deposit taking and transaction processing of our own customers, we’ll facilitate the actual movement of money from one account to another between customers of other banks and payment service providers (PSPs). We’ll do this as a B2B business, being direct members of fiat payment schemes (eg Faster Payment and CHAPS).

Utility should be the order of the day in providing valuable services and helping the economy to grow. So we plan to introduce products and services which are blockchain aligned and which leverage the efficiencies of self clearing assets towards a universal settlement layer.

Mind AI
Mind AI is an artificial intelligence engine that is capable of human-like abstract reasoning without the need for big data or supercomputers. With its ability to contextualize information and reason, Mind AI is able to generalize knowledge, a feat that no other AI today is capable of. By being able to learn on its own, Mind AI will be able to formulate its own hypotheses and models of how things work, augmenting human intelligence.

MeconCash
We intend to develop MeconCash into a platform that allows user’s assets to be transferred and traded between different types of services by integrating point reward systems, contents purchase, and settlement, which are currently operated separately between existing services and those under development. To that end, we will build the reward and settlement system, develop the API to connect it with other services, and build an ecosystem that can be used in the on- and off-line real economy. All this will ensure the usability, connectivity, and sustainability of MeconCash. We will develop a variety of mobile-based applications, games, and contents on the platform and link it with such services as online marketplaces where users can purchase products. The reward system used by a service generally invalidates the rewards owned by users when the service is terminated. MeconCash, however, can transform the rewards obtained from using our services into valuable assets. As such, users will be able to fulfill the demand for new services with MeconCash even when the services they use are terminated, make transactions between them, and use the assets in the real economy. We will stabilize the MeconCash ecosystem by developing new blockchain-based businesses and linking it with external services which already exists. Additionally, MeconCash will be available in 70% of ATMs in Korea so that users can directly withdraw MeconCash to fiat money.

Multi-set sharding is proposed to allow byzantine resistant scaling. The native protocol facilitates on-chain trading and order matching at the protocol level, supporting both limit and market orders.

ETHA
ETHA aims to disrupt the remittance and payment industry by lowering the barriers to an open financial ecosystem. Approximately 2,5 billion or nearly 40% of the global adult population, do not have a formal bank account or access to affordable financial services. The remittance solution platform will be the first of its kind to facilitate crypto to fiat transfer. Users will be able to send fiat money utilizing digital currencies by allowing the sender the flexibility to select different payout options for the recipient, such as Direct to Bank, Local (Cash) Pick-Up or Mobile Top Up. We have identified key problems within the remittance and payment industry, which we aim to solve. The existing remittance and payment industry is built on an old-fashioned infrastructure, bonded with expensive fees and transaction delays, which no longer serves the interest of its sophisticated customer base.
