Our Story

SIOTech World (SIO) is a technology company borne from the idealistic aspirations of of a few of us here in Cape Town, South Africa. We aim to leverage Bitcoin technology to revolutionise the world of money, finance and wealth within society by creating a completely new paradigm and architecture for finance.  A paradigm where financial institutions and central governments do not unduly dictate consumers’ financial wealth, their money’s buying power and their costs of living. We are creating a truly global financial architecture that will improve everyone’s experience when they move money across borders, invest in financial instruments outside of their local markets or gain access to other types of financial services elsewhere in the world. We aim to bring about a certain measure of balance between the rich and the poor, and between communities and corporates.

Imagine a world where people can safely send money to any country without the cumbersome process of converting currencies, without having to pay exorbitant foreign exchange fees or paying for the FX spread that the banks benefit from, or the exorbitant fees charged by money transfer operators (MTO’s). Imagine a world of decentralized, peer-to-peer (P2P) investing, where people can trade, invest and lend directly to each other. A world where the transactional agreements are executed via simple smart contracts that are set up for fair and risk-managed economic exchange, without a financial intermediary.

With SIOTech World’s innovative solutions, this can be our new normal!

Join us in creating a new world.

SIOTech World provides premium advice for cryptocurrency, payment and related financial endeavours, but is more focussed on the development of its innovative decentralized finance platform.
