Blockchain’s Mission and Guiding Principles Challenge Convention
We challenge the status quo and transcend the boundaries of today to create an open financial future that supports the broadest global community possible. We’ve been told that getting to where we are today would be impossible so we decided we were just getting started.
Empower the end-user: Our customers should own their financial future so we empower them to “Be Your Own Bank”. Our users come first. Sanctify security. Our users’ security and privacy are critical to our success and we will not forsake them in service of our ambition. Be humble. Be honest. Be human. We build connections with each other and our users by communicating frequently, authentically and openly and we build trust by doing what we say we’ll do. We’re big on accountability and high standards, but not on unnecessary rules.
