 Products Overview

 We’re building a digital finance platform that greatly advances the state
of the art, enabling a new generation of amazing finance applications for
consumers and businesses.

The first two products we’re developing are:

   - A consumer mobile phone app that enables everyone, including the
   world’s 2.5 billion “unbanked”, to buy and sell and participate in the
   world economy—no bank account required.
   - A turnkey enterprise platform that enables anyone, anywhere to set up
   a business from scratch, complete with legal entity, payment system, and
   website, within minutes and at negligible cost—no merchant account required.

*All that’s required is a mobile phone.* Everyone in the world now has
access to a mobile phone. Mobile payments are projected to reach one
trillion US dollars by 2015. Global payments already exceed 10 quadrillion
US dollars.

Our products will enable people to do business easier, faster, cheaper,
safer, and with greater freedom than ever before.
