OUR MISSION

Velo’s core mission is to build a decentralized settlement network that allows its Trusted Partners to securely transfer value among one another in a timely and transparent manner. Velo’s initial focus would be on business partners in the remittance and money transfer spaces in Southeast Asia followed by the wider Asia Pacific region and beyond.

Digital Credit Issuance

Velo opens new opportunities for businesses that are seeking innovative ways to serve the unbanked and underbanked populations across the global.

Digital Reserve System

The Digital Reserve System is an algorithmic rule set implemented by smart contracts that manage various aspects of the Velo Protocol. Its goal is to foster secure digital credit settlement by managing the pools of VELO token collateral backing the digital credits through a rebalancing mechanism.

Velo Ecosystem

The Velo Protocol is a value transfer engine that will initially consist of two components: a Digital Credit Issuance Mechanism and the Digital Reserve System. Together, these components will allow Trusted Partners to tap into the reach, operational efficiency and transparency of the Velo Protocol and its underlying distributed ledger technology. The Velo Protocol will enable multiple business use cases that are all based on its core function: that of issuing collateral backed digital credits that can be used for frictionless value transfer.

Cross-border Remittance

The Velo Protocol allows agents of Trusted Partners to connect directly and digitally to one another instead of going through the multiple settlement layers of the tradional financial system, thereby saving costs, improving transparency and speeding up the entire process.

Lending

Through Velo, lending has a chance to be transformed, streamlined, digitized,made cheaper and more efficient by bypassing the traditional banking infrastructure.



Digital Credits

The Velo Protocol can issue bespoke digital credits to suit the needs of any business without burdening corporate users with having to create and manage their own digital credits.


Payments

The Velo Ecosystem has the potential to link the different markets in Southeast Asia into one widespread payment gateway with digital and physical payment points.

Loyalty Points

Velo seeks to improve the fungibility of loyalty and gift points issued by Trusted Partners by enabling secondary market for points and digital credits that are issued by the Velo Protocol.

When it comes to solving the problem of the limited adoption of blockchain technology in the current landscape of financial services, Velo proposes a next generation financial protocol to aide in the issuance of collateral backed digital credits for real world use cases.
