Tl;dr: ARYZE is a Copenhagen-based fintech with a mission to solve the biggest problems within the financial system by promoting global financial inclusion and enabling the two billion unbanked people worldwide to access basic financial services.
The idea that started it all was simple. Let us create a digital version of cash so that money is as easy to build with as WordPress is to create websites. It was created to solve some of the biggest problems within the financial sphere, from lack of inclusiveness, money laundering & way too little transparency offered by incumbent banks.
ARYZE was founded in August 2017 with a mission to make dumb money smart, and just six months later, ARYZE won Best Fintech at Venture Cup, Denmark’s most prolific idea competition. In June 2018, ARYZE was named Denmark’s Best New Startup at Copenhagen fintech week, and before the end of 2018, ARYZE was already featured on Forbes.com.
In January 2019, ARYZE closed the first successful ICO in Danish history and, shortly after, won the People’s Choice Award at SDG Tech Awards. ARYZE is also named a Top 50 Nordic Impact Company and one of the Ten Most Promising Fintech companies in Europe by Fintech50.
Guided by the values of transparency and inclusivity, we are on a mission to solve all the biggest problems within the financial system. By focusing on promoting global financial inclusion and enabling the two billion unbanked people worldwide to access basic financial services, ARYZE will ensure that we meet UN Sustainable Development Goals 9, 10, and 16.
ARYZE envisions bridging traditional financial infrastructure with distributed ledger technology, creating an efficient, flexible, and transparent ecosystem that allows innovators to build solutions for the future.
