Answer: 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.
Question: What is being launched?
Answer: On launch day, it’s intended that access will be provided to an online store, together with an associated currency. It’s also intended that it will be possible to spend the dedicated currency within the online store.
Beyond the launch date, we have a number of planned applications, features and projects that we hope to launch.
Question: Why are you launching a store?
Answer: We believe that many digital currencies are currently little more than “stores of value”. They are not being used on a daily basis by consumers, retailers and service providers. By launching an online store that accepts digital currency payments from the outset, we aim to make the first step on the path to providing our currency as a mainstream means of payment. It’s also our aim to demonstrate “proof of concept”, as part of our objective to bring other retailers and service providers on board.
