Executive Summary

Mission & Vision

We believe that decentralization holds the key to empowering people around the world to better safeguard their rights, and that we are helping the world move in this direction by accelerating the transition to adopting cryptocurrency.

Mission:

Accelerate the World’s Transition to Cryptocurrency

We believe that by accelerating the transition to adopting cryptocurrency, we can help people globally to:

  • Control their money – ability to access their funds anytime and anywhere;
  • Safeguard their data – cryptography-secured blockchain makes datatempering highly unlikely;
  • Protect their identity – no central entity can compromise your identity.

Vision:

Cryptocurrency in Every WalletTM.

In our journey to achieve this vision, we are:

  • Redefining how money is being moved, spent and invested, and
  • Democratizing blockchain technology by designing beautiful, simple and useful financial services that have a lasting, positive impact on people’s lives.

Problem Statement and Our Strategy

Key Challenges in Driving Crypto Adoption

We see the following key challenges in driving crypto adoption:

  • User Experience Value Proposition Poorly designed user experience does not delight or satisfy mainstream users
  • Weak value propositions do not incentivize people to use crypto for purposes other than speculative trading
  • Complexity Dicult to understand and invest for new-to-crypto users
  • Security Damaged user confidence from crypto-related fraud and theft

Our Strategy

To tackle the challenges above, we are offering products along 3 verticals:

  • 1. Payment
  • 2. Trading
  • 3. Financial Services

Our strategy is to leverage payment solutions as the primary tool for driving adoption and user acquisition, while building trading and financial services solutions as the major sources of revenue. This strategy creates and self-sustains a virtuous cycle: payment channels bring users onto the platform, whereas trading and financial services generate revenue that can be reinvested into payment. Our product solutions across three verticals are building up a sustainable ecosystem that serves our mission: Accelerate the World’s Transition to Cryptocurrency

Support of Fiat Institutions

In our journey to achieve the vision of Cryptocurrency in Every WalletTM, we are also actively enlisting the support of fiat institutions and helping them to include or involve cryptocurrency in their offerings in a compliant, secure & cost-effective manner.

For example, one of the first products we have launched is the Visa Card as an approved VISA program manager. Cardholders can conveniently spend & withdraw the fiat equivalent of their cryptocurrency online or offline at 50+ millions of VISA-approved merchants worldwide.

As another case in point, our native blockchain solution – Tokenranking.net Chain – not only caters to retail users who want to spend any crypto anywhere for free, but also speaks to fiat institutions who face cryptocurrency-related challenges. For instance, Crypto.org Chain will help fiat institutions in areas such as:

  • Safe custody of cryptocurrencies;
  • Control of price volatilities of cryptocurrencies;
  • Timely and cost-efficient on-chain / off-chain settlement;
  • Management & support of multiple cryptocurrencies.
