QBit’s main activity is to help entrepreneurs to start build successful companies, helping them in the technological, financial and strategical part.

Main activities: 

  • Develop and maintain the REC technical part, including the API, back office, mobile apps and infrastructure.
  • Invest and participate in innovative companies in seed phase.
  • Cryptocurrency and investment advisory.

Founders of QBit come from the cryptocurrency and security world, having founded several companies around the world related to cryptocurrencies (crypto exchanges and ICOs), and cybersecurity companies.

Two years ago, QBit started working together with NOVACT in the development and management of the REC monetary system and QBit’s team is the main contributor to the technical part of the project.

The REC is an exclusively digital currency and can be used with a mobile app (IOS and Android), so payments are contactless and through a QR code. The technological system of the REC can be replicated and integrated to other platforms to create new functionalities, always having the objective to promote local and cooperative economy.  

In this sense, QBit has experience in the design and implementation of monetary systems and social economies in different fields and areas, and therefore ATARCA is an opportunity to advance in the experimentation of new models and systems based on cooperation and collaboration.
