ORCA is the first Open Banking platform designed for crypto users. It functions as a customizable, easy to use gateway into the crypto-economy for both advanced and amateur crypto enthusiasts.
ORCA makes use of the emerging field of Open Banking to innovative integration of fiat bank accounts with cryptocurrency wallets. Through the Dashboard users will be able to link multiple bank accounts from different providers into one place. Agile design solutions make it possible to customize the Dashboard to fully meet personal needs and desires, while smart ORCA analysis algorithms provide personalized help and suggestions to optimize management of personal finances.
What’s more, ORCA users will be able to access and use the best crypto-related services currently available on the market. All through a single platform, just like in the Apple App Store or Google Play. ORCA App Center provides a wide range of trusted third-party crypto applications to fulfill all individual needs. Crypto payment cards, trading bots, lending services, insurance and many more additions with the constantly expanding App Center.
All transactions within the ecosystem are fueled by ORCA tokens. The combination of ORCA tokens, internal token swap solutions and service integration APIs removes the need for any other crypto assets. With ORCA tokens nothing else is required to access the best of the crypto-economy.
ORCA (Open & Regulated Cryptocurrency Adoption) Alliance is a community-based initiative which promotes large-scale adoption of cryptocurrencies through ORCA Platform. ORCA will be the first platform of its kind to globally integrate both banking and cryptocurrency accounts, as well as spearhead the growth of the crypto economy. ORCA will take advantage of the EU’s revised Directive on Payment Services (PSD2)1, which empowers account holders with the authority to share data, removing the financial institution's role as gatekeeper. In addition, ORCA Platform fosters the creation of a dynamic financial service ecosystem through its ancillary components - ORCA App Center, a one-stop shop for crypto, service development, as well as Quest, a gamified community that fosters innovation of blockchain technology.
