Launched in 2020, Sperax is headquartered in NYC. After envisioning a Sperax Layer 1 blockchain, the team transitioned to building the first auto-yield-bearing stablecoin: Sperax USD (USDs). In December 2021, Sperax released USDs on L2 Arbitron. Residing on-chain, USDs is backed by collateral and algorithmically by the protocol’s ability to mint $1 worth of SPA when redeeming $1 of USDs. USDs combine the scalability benefits of algorithmic stablecoins with the stability benefits of collateralized stablecoins.

Guardtime was founded with a mission to make the world's information universally reliable, without reliance on the risks of human trust. Our invention, KSI, was originally designed to support the Estonian Government in its quest for zero-trust systems i.e. systems that can provide formally verifiable mathematical proof of the correctness of operations. The cost to the global economy of managing human trust can be measured in the trillions of dollars per year. A whole range of business functions (audit, compliance, cybersecurity, inspection, certification) exist that try to narrow the uncertainty associated with trusting others. However, they fail, with rising cost. Our vision is a world where these functions no longer exist as they are cryptographically encoded into the design of applications.
