CBA Finance AG

We’re living in the most interesting time of humanity: We learned to communicate world-wide using the Internet. Now we’re approaching the next evolutionary step: Digitising trade.

The first two fully digital currencies currently have a market capitalisation of over $100 billion and $20 billion, respectively. In terms of the global economy, this is small – in the region of 0.1%. So this is only the beginning.

CBA Finance AG set itself the goal to develop software, systems and tools to participate in this budding new market, in order to help building the new, all-digital financial world.
