In accordance with our company’s philosophy, we have taken great care
in designing it in order to protect participants and comply with existing
regulations. We followed an exhaustive list of legal, communication, pro...

WHY GALION?
1. ENVIRONMENT OVERVIEW
Crypto-assets constitute a booming ecosystem:
€
€
Coinmarketcap.com lists, as of April 2018,
over 1,600 different
cryptocurrencies and tokens
, and the emergence of smart contract
supporting blockchains, in particular Ethereum, allows anyone to deploy
a new token and list it on decentralized exchanges within hours.
This
number is bound to go up
as there is currently more than a dozen token
sales being held every day.
€
€
More than 200 centralized exchanges are currently in operation
, with 60
exchanges having a daily volume of more than $10m.
€
€
In addition to this, numerous innovative services are being developed on
top of the most advanced blockchains, either to allow cryptocurrencies
to be used as payment vehicles, or to offer financial services, and often
aiming at disrupting entire traditional industries.
The fact that this market is, by design, ver...

WHY GALION?
This hypothetical user had to navigate through three different user accounts,
and initiate four funds movements. The sheer complexity of this process is com-
pounded by the fact that users will have to go through it for every service they
will want to use.
Indeed, contrary to the traditional banking ecosystem where loans, credit cards,
savings accounts and all other banking services are provided by a single entity,
the crypto ecosystem is composed of independent companies and foundations,
each providing one specific service with their own independent token.
Using various services each relying on different tokens to function with efficien-
cy will in practice turn each individual user into the manager of its own complex
financial portfolio.
This is a major issue, as most people lack the expertise, skills
and time to navigate such a complex situation.
Considering that most crypto-users also have traditional assets (at the very
least, a bank account), the burden of ma...
