Monaco Rebrands as CRYPTO.com to Accelerate the World’s Transition to Cryptocurrency
Consumer facing products, including card and wallet app, rebranded as MCO
<HONG KONG, July 6, 2018> Monaco, the pioneering cryptocurrency and financial services firm, today announces its rebrand to CRYPTO.com, reflecting its mission to accelerate the global development, adoption, and transition to cryptocurrency.
Its integrated portfolio of premium consumer cryptocurrency products previously known as Monaco — including its wallet app and Visa payment cards — will be branded as MCO to align with the name of the company’s token. Additionally, CRYPTO.com’s MCO has published an updated whitepaper today to recap achievements thus far, highlighting its vision, strategy, new products and services in its pipeline.
Kris Marszalek, Co-Founder and CEO of CRYPTO.com, said: “CRYPTO.com gives us a powerful new identity in line with our original vision to put cryptocurrency in every wallet. As the name we’re taking on is also representative of the entire space, it comes with a huge responsibility to carry the torch. We will strive to deliver impact worthy of the name and build infrastructure that enables growth of the ecosystem, delivering on the promise of a decentralized future.”
Marszalek continued: “Today, we’re also releasing the MCO Whitepaper 2.0, which unveils a comprehensive and integrated suite of consumer financial services built on and enabled by blockchain. Collectively, these products will change how customers spend, move, and invest money. We’re very fortunate to have built a world-class team over the last year and I couldn’t be more proud of what the team has delivered. I encourage the entire MCO community to look through the whitepaper now available at www.crypto.com.”
“Our rebrand to CRYPTO.com will not affect our MCO Visa Card rollout schedule.”
