Concept:

In partnership with Komodo Platform, an open source project that thrives on solving existing socio-economical problems through decentralised technologies, our joint vision is to bridge banking and blockchain. Monaize Token holders are rewarded through reward distribution API in the form of KMD (Komodo Coin) based on the number of monthly sign ups to Monaize Business Account. Blockchain is yet to make significant breakthroughs in finance and grow beyond the early-adopter phase due to regulatory and technical limitations. Monaize, a leading banking platform that functions within the legacy banking infrastructure and has formed a deep partnership with Komodo Platform in order to bridge the worlds of banking and blockchain, and help cryptocurrencies achieve mainstream adoption. Monaize already has a working product which is in final beta testing and will be launched on the French and UK markets in the final quarter of 2017. An aggressive international expansion strategy will take Monaize to Germany in mid 2018 before launching the US, Asia and Africa in the coming years. Monaize has huge plans to push the boundaries in blockchain innovation by setting up a blockchain research and development team to explore the different ways in which blockchain technology can be integrated into its services including global payments, KYC on the blockchain, decentralised storage and in app crypto currency wallets to encourage adoption by small businesses and freelancers. This will be the first ever dICO (decentralised Initial Coin Offering) via Atomic Cross Chain Coin Swap.

Monaize ICO

Supply:

The asset chain contains 257,142,857 MNZ tokens. This is the maximum amount that could possibly be needed taking into account maximum raise and bonuses. Tokens that are not allocated following sale will be burned.

Usage:

Loyalty Reward Distribution Based on Monaize Business User Growth. An automatic Loyalty Reward Distribution API has been developed by Komodo Platform to allow simple yet efficient decentralised reward distribution through the MNZ blockchain. This API crawls through the blockchain and creates a list with all MNZ public keys and their current holdings. The loyalty reward distribution API takes a predefined amount in Komodo Coin and distributes it accordingly (based on the percentage of tokens held) to public key holders. The amount distributed is calculated taking into account the year, the price of Komodo and the number of new users signed up in the given month.

Competitors

ICO-Competitors

Monaize is often compared to N26, Revolut and other smaller players like Tide.co (UK) and Qonto (France). These players function more like a bank. Whereas Monaize functions as an open technology platform into which different financial service providers plug-in, in order to serve business users.

Robert has been working in sales and consulting for technology companies, from multinationals to small startups since 2011.

Guillaume Derivery

CTO

Guillaume graduated from both EPITECH (one of France’s top programming schools) and CSUSM (California State University of San Marcos) majoring in computer science & software engineering. He spent the last few years building platforms (as services) as a software architect & lead developer, from the sports industry to Fintech through gaming. Guillaume acquired his knowledge and sharpened his coding skills through different successful global projects involving end to end solutions. That’s how he has been involved in major events to build the future of second screen services e.g Fox Sports One App (Australia), UEFA 2016 European Championship, FIFA 2014 football world cup mobile Apps… For Guillaume, software architecture comes with elegant solutions devoted to innovation. Having breakfast rhymes with a few lines of C after coffee, followed by its progeny…C++ Obj-c C#. Javascript for lunch, Java @ tea time, but never CSS before going to bed, it gives him some nightmares. He definitely lives to code, or maybe he codes to live. However, as a recent hobby he is doing some permaculture that brings human beings closer to understanding nature mechanisms which is way more efficient than any human process. Indeed, nature might be the best carbage collector conception!
