MISSION

We at Ramp build a tool for connecting the open and the closed. We want to create a meshed, easily accessible connection between the open blockchain financial system and the old, closed banking system, with no need for a trusted third party in between. We are on a journey to an open, meshed, decentralized world where new financial systems help to build better futures.
