iov42 was founded to share our vision with our partners and customers.

iov42 was founded in 2016 with the vision of harnessing the power of distributed ledger technology (DLT) to realise a next generation internet—the Internet of Value. Our founders recognised the potential of DLT to transform B2B, B2C, and B2G relationships, but they knew that any company looking to successfully deliver DLT-powered solutions would have to overcome the gap between technological hype and real world application.

iov42’s team of technical experts quickly began work on developing a core technology infrastructure that would leverage the best elements of blockchain technology, internet principles, and cloud computing to overcome the constraints that had been impeding wide-scale DLT adoption.

The result? An identity-centric, asset-hosting DLT operating platform that meets the regulatory, security, interoperability, and scalability requirements of both the public and private sectors.

Four years of meticulous engineering and iterative learning have ensured that the iov42 platform is:

  • Made up of versatile core building blocks that support solutions for virtually any use case;
  • Secure enough for governments and businesses;
  • Simple enough for anybody to understand;
  • Agile enough to keep evolving.

We envision our core technology revolutionising the ways in which people, organisations, and governments can interact. In fact, if we were going to rebuild the internet today, we would build it based on the technology that we have developed, because it easily and securely builds immutable trust into every transaction on our platform.
