Connecting Digital Assets

We are an alliance of like-minded cryptocurrency companies and blockchain pioneers. Our ambition is to help decentralized ledger technology achieve mainstream adoption as a universal method for transferring value over the internet.

The Universal Protocol Platform is a transformational development for the entire blockchain industry, allowing all cryptocurrencies to be convertible on a single network.

Scaled Interoperability is nonexistent

The Universal Protocol Platform addresses one of the biggest challenges facing blockchain technology by allowing the instant and seamless transfer of value across different decentralized networks. Providing a common language through which incompatible protocols can ‘reason’ with each other, UPP will reduce the time, cost and risk of trading digital tokens and cryptocurrencies.

Convenience & Security

By building foundational architecture for interoperability, the Universal Protocol Platform will allow users to interact with multiple cryptocurrencies (and an abundance of other assets) on a single blockchain. UPP combines proven technologies – smart contracts and reserve functionality – with genuine innovation: highly secure & convertible Proxy Tokens.

Benefits.

01

Financial Institutions

For financial institutions, the platform solves the technical and custodial challenges of supporting multiple cryptocurrencies on bespoke blockchains: the UPP model provides a single standard compatible with any Proxy Token representing any tokenized asset. As a result, institutions will only have to write their business logic once, for Ethereum, in order to support any cryptocurrency, radically simplifying the integration process.

02

Retail Investors

For retail investors, the platform creates a more practical and ‘spendable’ way of holding cryptocurrencies: for example, users can borrow in fiat currencies against their Proxy Token holdings, a giant leap forward for the industry. Proxy Tokens also make cryptocurrencies far less risky to hold by introducing many of the safeguards associated with mature financial assets, such as fund recovery and easy inheritability.

03

Centralized Exchanges

For centralized exchanges, the platform dramatically streamlines the process of listing new cryptocurrencies, currently an expensive and time-consuming task that can take weeks, if not months, of work. After the introduction of the Universal Protocol, exchanges will only have to add Ethereum ERC-20 support once in order to list Proxies representing any cryptocurrency or other tokenized asset class.

04

Innovators

For innovators, the UP Platform provides the freedom to create bespoke blockchains for specific projects, since it makes any blockchain readily compatible with the widely adopted Ethereum network and its ecosystem of smart contracts, DApps and decentralized exchanges.
