Lykke is building a secure global marketplace for the exchange of all financial assets. Encouraging participation from all users, the Lykke Exchange levels the financial playing field through direct ownership of assets and immediate settlement of trades. Lykke coin (LKK) is a colored coin that represents a 1/100 of a share in Lykke Corp. Each registered share of Lykke Corp corresponds to 100 Lykke coins.
Lykke was founded by Richard Olsen, a distinguished pioneer in high frequency finance. He has been laying the conceptual foundations for Lykke for most of his professional life. The company was established in Switzerland and received initial seed funding in 2015.
Lykke is creating a single global marketplace, where any sort of financial instrument can be traded and settled peer to peer with second-by-second interest payments. The marketplace utilizes blockchain pioneered by Bitcoin to offer immediate settlement and direct ownership. The medium of exchange is the colored coin.
