The company’s vision is to build a bidirectional exchange of information at the time of the transaction, meaning, its solution is an Asset Registry platform (NFT as a service) embedded at the checkout, where Olyn’s team identifies and tokenizes the assets (in an NFT format) enabling consumers to capture ownership at the time of payment. Olyn's mission is to connect individuals, businesses, and economies seamlessly so they can thrive in Web 3.0.
