Announcing LytePay — The Decentralized Finance Platform for the Gig Economy, powered by $OST

We’re excited to announce today that LytePay — the decentralized finance platform for the gig economy — has partnered with Simple Token, OST, to launch a branded cryptocurrency token for their growing economy.

LytePay’s current core service is invoice factoring for freelancers, such as online influencers and web designers. Lytepay is currently in closed beta and it has achieved initial validation, processing more than $400,000 in transactions over the last 3 months. LytePay hopes to build the industry-standard decentralized finance platform for the gig economy as freelancers are expected to make up more than 40% of the global workforce by 2020 and their needs are not being met by current financial institutions.

Over the next few months, OST and LytePay teams will partner closely to launch LytePay’s own branded token economy powered by OST, and then to rollout LytePay services to freelancers globally.


LytePay Compassionate Banking for Online Influencers & Freelancers

LytePay was founded in 2017 by serial entrepreneurs in Southeast Asia. The mission of LytePay is to build the compassionate banking platform of the future, providing freelancers everywhere with access to affordable capital, fair insurance, and benefits from community membership.

LytePay invoice factoring is the first service that will be powered by the token. Clients can pay freelancers with the tokens and enjoy favorable credit terms, while influencers using LytePay can receive faster payments by accepting the token. This solves a real problem for online influencers and freelancers as payments often lag by 60 to 120 days from when the service is performed.

The LytePay token can also be used to power business expenses, savings, tax filings, insurance payment, also as collateral for loans and payment fees for credit scoring and credit checks.

Over the course of 2018, LytePay will be developing its solutions in close partnership with OST and we look forward to sharing the updates.
