At Request, our mission is to interconnect isolated financial systems to create more efficient and inclusive economies. We are accomplishing this by building a completely decentralized and open network for transaction requests.

WE BUILD THE FUTURE OF INVOICING AND BUSINESS

Our core technology is an open-source protocol. It allows records of transactions to be easily stored and accessed. This shared network gives financial systems a shared language to communicate.

On top of this, we are building Request Invoicing, the biggest crypto-friendly invoicing application. Request users benefit from our unique payment detection solution: the reconciliation of invoices payments is 100% automated. CFOs, accountants and auditors have the clearest financial view they could imagine.

Our upcoming priorities may include: integration of more blockchains and currencies, improvement of the payers’ UX with different kinds of wallets (for example: multisig wallets), decentralized escrow system embedded within the smart invoice, fiat on-ramps & off-ramps, mobile app etc.
