After successfully passing all three stages of testing, we have graduated from the Central Bank of Lithuania’s unique blockchain-based fintech sandbox (LBChain) on May 26, 2020 (Time: 11:00 a.m. (UTC+3). This will fast track our acquisition of an Electronic Money Institution license (EMI), so that we can fulfill our vision to bring about a new world of green digital banking and investment opportunities that leverage the power of blockchain innovation.
Graduating from the Central Bank Sandbox can help fast track the acquisition of an Electronic Money Institution license (EMI) and other relevant investment and finance licenses. The Central Bank of Lithuania is the largest digital banking licence issuer and market regulator in Europe, with well known digital banks such as Revolut (10M users) and also tech giants such as Google Pay (100M downloads), securing their EMI licenses also, from the Central Bank.
“Our time in the blockchain fintech sandbox allowed us to innovate around how we can use green digital bonds to funnel tens of billions into Green New Deal infrastructure, converging digital banking, payments and green investments into one earth-positive platform.”
says Tom Duncan, CEO of Earthbanc.
“The risks of climate change and the challenges of the Covid-19 recovery make the case for the Earthbanc Platform even stronger. Enabling green bond and social impact bond issuance, alongside regular stocks, bonds and real estate investments, is something that has been missing from the fintech space.”
We’re a ‘battle-tested’ green fintech venture backed by European and USA investors
Our demonstration of secure digital green bond issuance and secondary trading on the Central Bank blockchain within the Earthbanc platform has drawn the attention of investors, banks and investment platforms keen to provide us with an agent license to offer green securities, bonds and ETF investments all over Europe, UK and USA.
We have already secured VC investments from US based titans of impact and finance, in addition to Family Offices who are excited by Earthbanc’s green ‘Grow Bond’ with its yield of 6% APR in 2019.
Reaching the finish line and beyond
“We are excited to graduate from the sandbox as we are now fully operational in Earthbanc India with our 23,000 daily users, and are moving ahead in Europe, the UK, and soon, the USA” said Chief Operations Officer, Chau Tang. “In addition to opening registration for those interested in Earthbanc, we’re working hard on a pipeline of exciting green bond and fund issuances across different asset classes, as well as opening up our Grow Bond to retail investors across European markets.”
