We’ve partnered with Fortune 500 companies and are currently moving millions of dollars per day. And we're just getting started.

Our goal is to add ‘magic’ to the simplest, yet still dysfunctional, core business functions. Funded by renowned VCs in Silicon Valley, we’re well-vested in the digital currency community, with users in 50+ countries, with features in Forbes, WSJ, NBC, Bloomberg, Coindesk and more.
