Sending money abroad is difficult, costly and can take several days. In the age of the Internet,

Blockchain Ledgers The Missing Link
Anonymous, untraceable transactions. Protocol supported and regulated by central banks. Identity supported as a core part of the protocol. Transactions are fully traceable and auditable.
Borderless transactions. AML and KYC support. All transactions are traceable with appropriate legal approvals.
Monetary policies are disconnected from market needs. Money supply issued and existing on the ledger is controlled and capped. Additions and removals from money supply are only made by the Central Bank.


Privacy first

Using advanced distributed blockchain methods available only since 2013, the DottedSquare Secure ID (TM) enables the safest storage of identity ever created. Privacy is at the core of the system.

Fully traceable transactions

Our virtual money features a ledger and transactions that only legal persons can conduct. It is supported by the Dotted Square Secure ID (TM).
