Flexible Telco API

The Telcoin pricing and exchange API allows interaction with mobile network IN prepaid platforms, postpaid billing systems, and mobile money accounts, via SMS, USSD, REST APIs, and Diameter.

Wallet agnostic

We will help telecoms release branded Telcoin wallets and will cooperate with any operator proprietary or third-party wallets.

Truly mobile-friendly

Telcoin is designed to be fully integrated with your mobile spending habits, including international remittances, online payments, mobile credit topups and ad hoc transfers.

Reimagining remittances on the blockchain

Telcoin will initially focus on the remittance market, currently dominated by large players like Western Union:

$500B Market

International Remittances are a gigantic and growing market that Telcoin believes is ripe for disruption.

5 Billion phones and growing

By partnering with mobile operators we will be in a unique position to reach an enormous amount of potential customers.

Low fees

By coupling the power of cryptocurrency and telecoms, we can afford to provide very cheap transfers, which will allow us to gain market share.


The Telcoin roadmap is not limited to remittances. We will leverage our positioning to bring roaming spending (offer tourists access to local currency spending), international aid (facilitating disbursements to underbanked), and online payments in general.
