The ORCA Alliance is a community-based initiative which promotes the large-scale adoption of cryptocurrencies through the ORCA Platform.
ORCA, which is short for 'Open & Regulated Cryptocurrency Adoption', will be the first platform of its kind to globally integrate both banking and cryptocurrency accounts, as well as spearhead the growth of the crypto economy. ORCA will take advantage of the EU’s revised Directive on Payment Services (PSD2), which empowers account holders with the authority to share data, removing the financial institution's role as gatekeeper. In addition,the ORCA Platform fosters the creation of a dynamic financial services ecosystem through its ancillary components - the ORCA App Center, a one-stop shop for crypto service development, and Quest, a gamified community that fosters blockchain technology innovation.
The ORCA Platform is the principal tool that the ORCA Alliance utilizes in pursuing its mission. The platform provides the technology needed for capturing the synergy that arises from cryptocurrency service aggregation, community engagement and mainstream adoption. The ORCA Platform includes the following solutions:
- An Open Banking Platform
- An Account Overview Interface
- ORCA AI
- ORCA App Center
- ORCA Tokens
