Simplifying digital currency for the masses

Register now for Monartis Crowdfunding

Starting early December 2017

Monartis sees the launch of a new, easy to use digital currency. So simple to use, in fact, that it’s intended that it will be possible to spend the currency online from the day of release in a dedicated online store.

Designed for mass market adoption, the Monartis eco-system will be developed to provide a user-friendly environment for consumers, retailers and service providers. Our Monartis Fast Checkout app will have the potential to reduce online checkout times by almost 90%, helping to save both consumers and retailers valuable time and money.

The crowdfunding campaign is scheduled to launch early December 2017.

An evolution in digital payments

Monartis will be opening an online store, with associated currency.

It is intended that it will be possible to make payments within the store, using the new currency, from the outset.

It is hoped and expected that, beyond the launch day, Monartis will be accepted by multiple retailers and service providers, becoming a mainstream means of both making payments and transferring money across borders, without the need for the bank charges and currency exchange fees often associated with such transactions currently.

The founders are seeking to raise funds to enable further development of the online store, integration methods for a variety of e-commerce platforms (including Shopify, Magento and Woocommerce), the creation of the Monartis Fast Checkout app to assist with future adoption of the currency and for marketing activity to promote both the store and the currency. A key element of the marketing activity will consist of an extensive retailer recruitment campaign.

Making the complex appear simple

Have you tried talking about digital currencies with your friends and family?

Although many of us who are immersed in the industry are aware of the possibilities, the opportunities and even the associated jargon, the reality is that many consumers struggle to understand the basic concepts involved.

Safe, secure and cost effective

Further unlocking the potential in the online retail world

Many coins are currently being seen largely as a means of storing value and are being used on a transactional basis by only a small fraction of the potential user base. If digital currencies are to take the next step, they need to become both accepted and accessible. This is where we believe that Monartis can make a difference.

Dedicated online store

Demonstrating to retailers the potential as a payment method

Our vision is relatively simple: Monartis will be a useable coin. It’s our view that this means that it should be possible to use it from day one. Not just to be bought and held as a potential store of value. But as a coin that can be exchanged for goods and services.

That’s why we’ve decided to launch an online store. The Monartis store will initially stock a range of limited edition products. Crucially, however, it will include an integrated method of making payments using the Monartis currency.

Throughout the summer of 2018, it is our intention to hold discussions with a number of retailers, with the aim of encouraging retailers to accept the new Monartis currency. We’re hoping to bring the first retailers on board by September 2018. We believe that this also allows some contingency for dealing with any issues that stem from the initial launch.

December 2018

By the end of December 2018, we are planning on launching SMS currency transfer services, which we believe will be particularly beneficial for those who struggle to gain access to traditional bank accounts.
