“I don’t believe we shall ever have a good money again before we take the thing out of the hands of government. we can’t take it violently out of the hands of government. All we can do is by some sly roundabout way introduce something that they can’t stop.”
The advent of digital currencies like bitcoin has brought us the possibility of a world where people can have full control over their economic lives - free to transact real value with anyone, anywhere, instantly, and with no third parties involved. Token Labs was founded with the intent of building this world. A world where people, not governments, and not banks, control the money.
We are developing tools for consumers and merchants to join and participate in the new digital economy. But we are not stopping there. In addition to contributing to the latest developments in digitial currency / blockchain technology, we are also developing ways to make the inherent benefits of digital currencies tangible to the masses.
