In the final demo before lunch, KlickEx
debuted its crypto-currency for central banks:
“After extensive testing in the Pacific, KlickEx is pleased to announce the development of a new asset-backed and algorithmic crypto-currency for institutional and retail use. A stable, international, risk-free asset is a key foundation for efficient financial markets, and KlickEx’s award-winning interbank payment network has an exemplary track record in stability, and efficiency. Having eradicated the significant systematic deficiencies of Bitcoin, then bridged the portfolio limitations of the IMF’s SDR, the new base asset is a proactive response to recent negative public sentiment towards banking in general, and recent global events including the GFC, Euro-Crisis, BASEL II, III, and fiscal & political instability in Prime currencies.
KlickEx believes in efficient, effective, and accessible financial markets. Our products enhance transparency, stability, inclusion, and systematic velocity by eliminating counter-party risks from central bank balance sheets, informal remittance networks, and mitigating cash inefficiencies for commercial banks, mobile operators and regulators. KlickEx has taken the best, and made it better.”

Product Launch: November 2013
Product distribution strategy: Distribution begins with use-case pilots, followed by structured phase-in programs with Central Banks and local (sovereign) government entities, then Commercial and Clearing Banks. Finally, KlickEx engages Mobile Telcos and then directly to retail users. The process usually takes 6-60 weeks to go through, depending on the country.
