Lykke builds a global marketplace for all asset classes and instruments. The marketplace builds on top of blockchain and is designed to accommodate different blockchain technologies. In the case of Bitcoin issuers use the open asset protocol to create digital coins that are financial securities representing currencies, equities, commodities or any other type of 'I_Owe_You'. The exchange has a new type of matching engine that uses price, spread and time to queue Limit orders. Our goal is to build an efficient market and establish human right of direct access to a fair marketplace.
