About us

The ioNectar platform combines creative powers from various fields, which has resulted in a unique financial tool. Expertise in IT, computer programming and financial markets meet in the ioNectar risk managing operations. The know-how contained in the ioNectar was later joined by legal & compliance expertise and the team expanded to work on X8Currency and other products based on this solid foundation.

X8Currency is a unique value preservation token. Unlike most stable coins it is not pegged to an asset but fights inflation by continuously shifting holdings between 8 major currencies and gold. This process is operated by AI and requires no human intervention at any point. X8Currency is 100% asset-backed and less volatile than a single currency in the long term. The AI behind the token has been operating live accounts since 2016 with excellent results.

The X8 project is wholly compliant with Swiss financial regulator FINMA and is fully transparent within the Swiss financial ecosystem. It offers clients ranging from individuals to institutions the ultimate in value preservation even in black swan scenarios.
