Our mission

Enable freedom and security by design for everyone

As centralized exchanges started to fail, we realized it was time for a different solution. We strongly believe in peer-to-peer over centralized systems with a single point of failure. We are blockchain agnostic and want to support all existing and future crypto-technologies in our independent, autonomous, and open platform.

Technology

Decentralized & deterministic wallet security

Wallet master key

Deterministic wallet

Our platform runs locally in your browser and encrypts all data. When you log in on the wallet all your actions are client side encrypted. The wallet uses the safest open source Networking and Cryptography library (NaCl). We don’t store any of your data. We do not have access to your Account ID and password, so make sure you keep them safe because we cannot recover them.

We built our wallet to use a deterministic master key. When you create a new wallet, your randomly created master key automatically creates addresses on all supported blockchains. With transactions you can easily select this specific blockchain address in your wallet. Sending and receiving transactions made easy.

Open platform for token support

We created an open platform where anyone can easily add support for their tokens on both our wallet and our exchange. This will enable us to scale and become the platform that supports the most cryptocurrencies and tokens.

This is made possible by submitting recipes. A recipe includes up to 12 characteristics of a token. Anyone can collect the input for the recipes of most tokens. If we already support the blockchain your token runs on, adding support for your token is easy. Recipes can be submitted to our developer’s repository, upon which it will be tested and implemented.

HYBRID asset for cross-blockchain swaps

We created the world’s first hybrid asset, connecting multiple blockchains. A hybrid asset can be used to diversify (portfolio) risk across different blockchains and creates arbitrage possibilities across exchanges for active users.

Our HYBRID asset is created on and connects 7 blockchain systems

Our HYBRID asset is created on and connects 7 blockchain systems

Our HYBRID (XHY) token will make cross-blockchain peer-to-peer hybrid swaps possible on our platform, allowing users to trade cryptocurrencies between blockchains.
