Our Home by Choice
We chose to be based in Estonia after seeing how the country has successfully brought blockchain technology into the everyday lives of its citizens.
E-Residency, introduced by the Republic of Estonia, is a government-issued digital identification system that is available to anyone in the world. The ID, the first of its kind, provides the flexibility to easily start and run a global business as part of the Estonian government’s plan to create a new digital nation for global citizens.
A collaborative platform where each participant comes together like bees in a beehive. By joining forces, every partner in this digital ecosystem thrives.
