The Full Story

It all started with a joint-research collaboration project with professors and other faculty from Stockholm School of Economics and The Royal Institute of Technology. The team started to do research around blockchain and bitcoin and realize that crypto currencies like bitcoin was very slowly and volitive.

The key features of Centiglobe are transparency, security, decentralization, and global reach. These features mean that no single actor will control the system and that access is not limited by geography, and that assets and monetary transfers are more secure, transparent, effective, and faster.
These features connects Centiglobe to the goals of Agenda 2030, e.g. tackle global poverty (goal 1) and inequality (goal 10), facilitate growth through effectivization instead of increased consumption (goal 8), and more cooperation in global trade (goal 17).
The key feature of transparency gives the possibility to trace transactions and therefore lowering corruption, together with the claims above, increase the trust between parties and securing trust for the digital society.
