DISC believes that transformational distributed ledger technology, coupled with secure mobile communication hardware, has the power to offer faster, more efficient, more secure and more cost effective alternatives to existing platforms used for the exchange of goods, services and information.
DISC is continuously developing its own proprietary applications in payments, credit and messaging that demonstrate and showcase these attributes and are already generating practical benefits for users. As well as making use of the DISC Platform for its own applications, the company works with licensees and other partners looking to develop their own applications targeted at specific business opportunities in the UK and globally.
DISC is a private company and received initial investment to support its work to date from a number of individuals. Most recently has received funding from two institutional investors based in the U.S.
