Digital money democratized
Delivering rewarding financial experiences to people and businesses.
Changing the world, one transaction at a time.
“We have experienced the effects of digital money being ubiquitous in our local society, building our financial services success out of Norway. We have experienced the joy of empowering people to transact instantly, remotely, in urgent situations and in daily life. We have seen businesses created, grow and flourish as a result of new opportunities arising that weren’t possible with cash or cards. We have seen more equal access to financial services, as mobile phones replace the need for lengthy queues in bank buildings where many are not welcomed.
It is our social obligation and moral calling to share this experience, these capabilities, with the world and spend all our resources digitising and democratising money, making it universally available. Creating valuable connections between people and businesses. This is why Settle exists.”
