Partnerships and team members
New York, May 14th, 2019. Fusion Foundation announced that Swiss fintech Mt Pelerin will use Fusion to enrich its compliant security tokenization platform, which is central to the bank that Mt Pelerin is creating.
Mt Pelerin, which gets its name from the Mont Pèlerin Society, a group of economists and intellectuals advocating for economic and political freedom, introduced its open source framework in 2018 for the fully compliant issuance and management of tokenized securities. Currently working on a Swiss banking license application, Mt Pelerin expects to roll out a fully regulated tokenized bank with integrated payment, banking and trading features by 2020.
Like Fusion, Mt Pelerin embraces an open and inclusive approach to expanding the possibilities for global cryptofinance. For Mt Pelerin, it is therefore a logical complementary move to add Fusion’s groundbreaking blockchain protocol to its ecosystem, including its Distributed Control Rights Management (DCRM) technology and novel approach to Time-locking and Quantum Swapping. This partnership will increase digital asset accessibility and enrich Mt Pelerin’s next generation tokenized banking platform.
“Arnaud and his team are on an important mission to accelerate the evolution of the banking industry by bridging the crypto economy with traditional finance,” said Dejun Qian, Founder and CEO of Fusion Foundation. “We look forward to collaborating with Mt Pelerin to provide both technological support and access to our growing ecosystem of partners, including banks and governments, to support their efforts.”
Today, traditional banks are highly undifferentiated in terms of what products are available to the market, and sometimes underserve smaller customers. With its radically new business model, Mt Pelerin seeks to offer a vastly more accessible suite of products and services for all. Fusion’s protocol has been specifically designed to enable blockchain-based finance, making it the perfect fit for a forward-thinking innovator like Mt Pelerin.
“The unique interoperability of Fusion’s core functionality is of great interest for the tokenized banking ecosystem that we are building at Mt Pelerin,” said Arnaud Salomon, CEO and Founder of Mt Pelerin. “By democratizing complex financial products and services in a simple, transparent and cost-efficient way, we look forward to working with Fusion to shape the future of how the world banks.”
About Mt Pelerin
Mt Pelerin is a Swiss company based in Geneva building the first blockchain bank. It uses the technology to create a compliant and open ecosystem where individuals and businesses will be able to issue, deposit and trade tokenized securities straight from their bank account. With this new institution, Mt Pelerin envisions a new era of financial freedom through a facilitated and disintermediated access to financing and investment for all. Mt Pelerin has the ambition to become a fully authorized Swiss bank by early 2020. For more information, a press kit is available here.
New York, May 16th, 2019 — Fusion Foundation announced that it is now partnering with Zeux, the world’s first crypto mobile payment and investment application, to expand access to digital asset investment opportunities through Zeux’s simple, safe and user-friendly mobile payment and investment app.

Fantom Selects Fusion’s Industry-First Interoperability Solution to Broaden Compatibility and Fast-track Adoption of Fantom DLT:
New York, May 17th, 2019 — Fusion Foundation announced that Fantom Foundation has selected Fusion’s cutting-edge interoperability solution to expand the accessibility and reach of Fantom’s Direct Acyclic Graph (DAG)-based distributed ledger.
Fantom’s DAG-based distributed ledger technology (DLT) incorporates new methods of scalability, combined with a high-performance virtual machine, and secure smart contract execution. Its ground-breaking consensus mechanism employs “gossip about gossip” rationale to reach Asynchronous Byzantine Fault Tolerant (aBFT) consensus, which is considered to be the gold standard in security for distributed systems.
The Fantom protocol supports sophisticated peer-to-peer communication that emulates the spread of gossip. With speed and flexibility, Fantom’s network is being built to serve as the backbone to power smart cities and lightning fast payments.
“Fantom has made impressive progress with their protocol to provide a highly performant information and transaction sharing layer. We are excited to broaden their compatibility with our interoperable DCRM solution,” said Dejun Qian, Founder and CEO of Fusion Foundation. “DCRM will soon be the standard for digital asset interoperability, and we are excited to see more and more projects integrating it into their systems.”
The first step in the collaboration is to integrate Fusion’s Distributed Control Rights Management (DCRM) interoperability solution with Fantom’s high-speed network. As a result of the integration, the Fantom network will become compatible with other blockchain and legacy systems, vastly increasing network accessibility while fast-tracking adoption.
“Fusion’s DCRM technology achieves new levels of digital asset connectivity that impressed our technical team,” said Michael Kong, Chief Information Officer of Fantom. “We look forward to integrating it into our technology stake to enable the unrestrained transfer of value across the Fantom network.”
The partnership between Fusion and Fantom will empower ecosystems with loosely aligned participants, such as city transportation systems, to advance the digital revolution.
Fantom is a new network that proposes a groundbreaking consensus mechanism which utilizes gossip about gossip to reach aBFT consensus. The developers behind Fantom consider themselves to be specialists in consensus, holistic consensus. They’re building the network and the backbone to power smart cities and blazingly fast payments.
