Payments done right…

Solving SDGs 9, 10 and 16 is our ultimate goal!

The idea for ARYZE was devised by tech native and blockchain expert Jack Nikogosian. After spending two years as the head of the innovation lab at Coinify, Nikogosian was frustrated that prototypes of blockchain-based products and services could not be built with national currencies. He realised that turning ‘smart money’ into real money could unlock some of the biggest problems within the financial sphere, and thus set down to work on creating such a solution.

As a result, ARYZE was founded in August 2017 with a mission to make payments cheaper, faster and smarter. Nikogosian, ARYZE’s CEO, co-created the company in the Copenhagen Fintech Lab with Morten Nielsen (previously at JP Morgan and UBS) and Carl Jenster. 

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. After a stint in Frederiksberg, in summer 2018 ARYZE moved into their current headquarters at Kobmagergade 22 in central Copenhagen. Before the end of 2018, ARYZE was already featured on Forbes.com. 

2019 was an important year for ARYZE: in January they closed the first successful ICO in Danish history, raising 1.6 million USD. ARYZE won the People’s Choice Award at the SDG Tech Awards and was named as both a Top 50 Nordic Impact Company and one of the Ten Most Promising Fintechs in Europe by Fintech50. CEO Jack Nikogosian was listed as a top 100 talent in Denmark and was a finalist for Founder of the Year at the 2019 Nordic Startup Awards, where ARYZE was also a contender for Best Fintech Startup.

ARYZE has garnered attention from all major Danish publications as well as numerous prominent international media platforms. The company has hosted and attended countless community events, conferences and speaking publications all over the world. 

Now, in 2020, ARYZE is ready to launch Digital Cash. Guided by the values of transparency and inclusivity, we are on a mission to solve all the biggest problems within the financial system. ARYZE aims to reduce money transfer costs to near zero, and to provide solutions to meet UN Sustainable Development Goals 9, 10 and 16. ARYZE focuses on promoting global financial inclusion, enabling the two billion unbanked people worldwide to access basic financial services. We are building a system with the capacity to host and interact with every other existing financial system, both past and future.

ARYZE’s vision: to bridge traditional financial infrastructure with distributed ledger technology, creating an efficient, flexible and transparent ecosystem that allows innovators to build solutions for the future.
