Lykke is a Swiss Fintech company building a global marketplace based on blockchain. It builds on decades of thought and research by company founder Richard Olsen, a pioneer in the field of high-frequency finance. Richard served as co-founder and CEO of OANDA, a leading foreign exchange company.
Lykke will create a single global marketplace, where any sort of financial instrument can be traded and settled peer to peer with second-by-second interest payments. Unlike the structure of prevailing markets, ours will be a level playing field to which anyone with an Internet connection can have access.
Our marketplace utilizes blockchain pioneered by Bitcoin to offer immediate settlement and direct ownership. All the software that serves as the foundation of the market will be developed in open source.
Commissions are zero. We anticipate ample trade volumes. Our revenue will come from providing liquidity, offering issuance services, and supporting institutional clients.
