Current Problem - Global Payments
A number of problems exist within the current global payments system which result in many pain points for consumers who send and receive money across international borders
The global payments industry is fragmented
There isn't one network for global payments, and the existing underlying infrastructure is outdated and highly fragmented which results in poor outcomes for consumers
Payments are too
Third party institutions including banks, remittance networks and specialty transfer services such as Western Union charge high fees, often 10% or higher
Payments take too long to settle
Due to the highly fragmented nature of the current industry and lack of a global network, international payments currently take an average of 3-5 days to settle

To achieve this, we have created the IEC cryptocurrency with a high supply of coins, extremely fast transaction speeds, a highly scalable network and low transaction costs at only a fraction of a cent per transaction.

This accounted for 10% of GDP and 8.3% of GNI for the Philippines in 2017.
