Calidris makes the tools of the crypto economy ­accessible to all so that everyone can achieve their full potential. The founder of Calidris Fintech AG, Peter Lindenmann, himself active in classical finance since 2005, experienced its shortcomings through his work. Above all it was the banking crash and the subsequent low-interest-rate policy that really bothered his customers. As a result, his vision of ‘freeing people’s personal finances and their promising ideas from the control of third parties’ matured. In doing this, Calidris goes down the fully regulated path of a Security Token Offering (STO). An STO unites the quality of a security paper with the modern and contemporary input of the blockchain.

A lot of things will be digitised in the future, in other words, ‘tokenised’ and we are a part of this from the start.” Calidris’ approach solves the problems identified and thus unleashes the full potential of the technology free to all. The technology used in Calidris’ solution is revolutionary, hardly any energy or storage space is used whilst the mathematical structure of the system enables an infinite number of transactions and its ease of use makes the Calidris applications available to everyone. “We solve many problems that up until now have prevented the promising crypto market from hitting the mainstream.
