We’re a blockchain startup, but we are helmed by early adopters and industry veterans that are building a very groundbreaking product suite that provides the user experience improvements needed to make blockchain technology truly mass adoptable. For example, we have a working prototype of a cryptocurrency wallet which provides interoperability between chains and human friendly addresses to make crypto transfers as easy as sending and receiving email. Our demo of this prototype won Runner Up in the Startup Battlefield Europe competition hosted by TechCrunch.
IOV was founded because we believe in the potential of blockchain tech to improve life for not only business operators, but everyone - in every industry, and every economy. We believe thev IOV Name Service, an SDK for developers, and the “universal wallet” we’re building for mainstream consumer usage. You can find more details on our website: https://www.iov.one/.
