Our mission is to create an open financial system for the world

An open financial system is one that is not controlled by any one country or company (just like the internet did for distributing information). We think this is the highest leverage way to bring about more economic freedom, innovation, efficiency, and equality of opportunity in the world. We have a ten-year plan to get there.

-Imagine if every payment in the world was as fast, cheap, and global as sending an email.
-Imagine if anyone who had an idea for a product could have customers all over the world from day one.
-Imagine if anyone with a smartphone had access to the same financial services we enjoy in the developed world.

An open financial system can be a great equalizer and lift billions out of poverty while accelerating the pace of innovation around the world. This is the best way we know to change the world.
