IvyKoinTM is a decentralised network of validators, consisting of financial institutions and intermediaries.

The network uses the tokens to communicate transaction and customer data, and for settling balances.

This is done using tokens that are easily traded for their utility of facilitating payments in flat currency at their financial institutions.

It is a key differentiator from Ripple, the leading alternative to Bitcoin.

The target audience consists of businesses seeking a better way to facilitate large transactions internationally.

Investment from Change Financial Limited

IvyKoinTM has recently received a significant strategic investment from ASX-listed, USA-based Change Financial Limited (ASX:CCA) (OTCQX:CNGFF).

It has also been backed by a number of industry heavyweights including the former regional and business heads of PayPal and Westpac.
