FIO Partners with GSR to Strengthen FIO Token Ecosystem

The FIO Protocol and GSR are excited to work together to enhance the robustness of the FIO utility token in the market.

For over eight years, the GSR team has worked with blockchain projects, providing liquidity to over 130 protocols and integrating with 60 trading venues. The FIO Protocol is making all blockchain interactions across every crypto application more user-friendly and much less risky by removing the user need to interact with complex, long-string public addresses, and is doing so in a decentralized and self-sovereign manner. Primary FIO Protocol features include the ability to:

  • Send and receive any type of cryptocurrency using human readable FIO Crypto Handles
  • Request payment in any type of cryptocurrency using FIO Requests
  • Include transaction notes or memos using FIO Data
  • Prevent NFT forgery using FIO NFT Signatures

“We’re excited to partner with FIO Protocol as we work together to improve cryptocurrency usability in the space,” said Rich Rosenblum, Co-Founder and President, GSR. “As the industry continues to grow, lowering the barriers of entry for users is a critical step for widespread crypto usage and adoption.”

Luke Stokes, Managing Director of the Foundation for Interwallet Operability (FIO) noted, “I’m very impressed with the GSR team and excited to work together to craft the future of digital finance. GSR has an impressive roster of top tier traditional finance experience combined with seasoned crypto experts who have been in this market for eight years. They are well positioned to help pave the way for both retail and institutional users coming to the cryptocurrency space. The Foundation for Interwallet Operability believes the future belongs to the bold who understand the importance of usability, accessibility, and financial inclusion without sacrificing decentralization and the core principles we all value.”

Together GSR and FIO will strengthen their joint vision of making decentralized self sovereign crypto transactions a seamless, user-friendly way to drive mass adoption.
