You probably already know that Lykke is the only digital exchange of the very select few verified by Blockchain Transparency Institute that offers 0% trading fees. We truly believe that in the future economy, everybody will be able to exchange any kind of assets (be it an object, a currency or a service) freely with anybody in the world. In fact, our mission is to create the conditions necessary for such an exchange. However, in the current financial system, 0% trading fees may be as much of an obstacle as an advantage.

We decided to launch the second edition of Lykke Writing Contest to find out what is your opinion on a 0% trading fee exchange. Participate to be in with a chance to win our first prize!

1st prize is 300$. Second and third places will get 150$ each.

The entrance prize for each quality article is 25$.
