About

What is Polity?

A new generation crypto wealth management network for professional advisors and qualified investors

First-in-kind crypto wealth management network

Built as a B2B2C federated crypto wealth management network, Polity will bring together crypto advisors, asset managers and investors and provide intuitive and inclusive user experience, unparalleled security, compliant privacy and extensive functionality.

Personalised user experience

Polity combines cutting-edge technologies and human touch for immersive, rich and personalised user experience. Polity inverts a traditional wealth-management organization making it decentralized, open-architecture, infinitely scalable, and cost effective by design, while enabling personalized wealth management experience for the investors.

A decentralised organisation

Polity is managed as a permissioned, professional and project-centric expert DAO (pDAO). It blends the best new decentralised and traditional governance practices and ‘select and elect’ leadership principles, to deliver a higher quality network and scale faster than traditional organisations.

Features

Polity Advantages

Polity solves the control vs usability dilemma and increases accessibility of crypto investments by building a bridge between TradFi and DeFi.

Non-custodial

At Polity, Investors will at all times control and retain complete ownership of their digital assets without the need for private keys.

Personalised

Investors can choose between self-directed trading or advised and managed portfolios by engaging qualified Providers who can offer high-touch personalized crypto advice, management and support through an intuitive and user-friendly interface.

Secure

Polity is being designed based on security-first principles.  All self-custody, trading, portfolio management and payment transactions will be secured by Multi-Party Computation (MPC) technology.

Private

Polity will not ask for or collect Investors’ personal data. The R3 Corda ‘base-layer’ protocol, embedded self-sovereign identity (SSI) module and Conclave confidential computing will help protect and preserve Investor’s privacy, whilst enabling full compliance.

Compliant

Polity will incorporate AML and KYC tools which will help ensure the network’s integrity.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Polity’s Business Model?

Polity Network will operate as a B2B2C multi-sided platform where Providers and Investors will be Polity Network participants. Polity will offer its technology and services to Providers, who are professional and, where required, regulated, crypto market participants.

These Investors will be free to choose their Provider(s) on the Network. Polity will not engage directly with Investors or provide any services to them.

However, it is anticipated that certain Providers (e.g. Advisors and Managers) shall be subject to regulation and licensing in the jurisdictions where they are registered and/or operate.

Polity views EEA as its core market, but will also welcome eligible investors from other regions (e.g. Middle East, SEA, Africa, Latin America, etc.).
