Infrastructure

The blockchain is a global and decentralized ledger. By design, it is a transparent, fail-proof, and tamper-proof self-governed computer network.

The blockchain is a also a platform for d@ssets (digital assets). As it is not restricted by national borders it is accessible to anyone with a device connected to the Internet. Experts expect the blockchain to not only profoundly disrupt finance, but also to democratize it.

Tokenization

Tokenization

Real-world assets are transformed into their digital form as tokens on the blockchain. In other words, every entity possessing a value can be represented by its token. As a consequence, a digital universe of value emerges.

Tokenization does, however, not stop here. Also intangible assets find their digital blockchain representations.

Custody

Custody

A custodian is an organisation responsible for safeguarding people’s financial assets. In the blockchain world, specialized custodians keep your d@ssets safe and secure.

Banking

Banking

With the emergence of the blockchain, new digital and tech-savvy banks are appearing. These banking partners on-board end clients and fulfill all the required regulations.

Marketplace

Marketplace

In order to facilitate the exchange of d@ssets, professional trading venues provide access to digital marketplaces. Now buying and selling d@ssets can happen fast & efficient, with a click of a button.

Liquidity

Liquidity

The last missing piece within this digital ecosystem is liquidity. In liquid markets, assets can be easily and instantaneously exchanged. However, many d@ssets are still locked in illiquid markets. flovtec enables the exchange of d@ssets at low costs and in a secure way, opening the door to a truly digital future of finance, enabled by the blockchain.

Team

We are a team of technologists with deep financial expertise.
