Cryptocurrency, one of the newest asset classes, presents unique challenges to the traditional financial planning ecosystem. The inheriting, managing, security, storage, and distribution of cryptocurrency for financial advisors are areas that have gone largely unaddressed. The vast majority of financial platforms for advisors offer virtually no crypto integration that advisors are comfortable with or have gained any real traction. Our solution is Quantum Platform and we’re the first professional grade cryptocurrency research and investment platform for financial advisors in the US and the world over. We will enable advisors to purchase, store, trade, and manage cryptocurrency for their clients and allow them to fully incorporate this asset class into the rest of financial planning services they offer in compliance with local regulations.

Wiprain is an innovative new technology startup disrupting one of the world's most established industries: autos. In the last century, almost every part of a car’s design has changed, from the engine itself to steering or aerodynamic aesthetics.

WipRain uses the latest technical developments from a range of industries to solve one of the simplest problems drivers face: how to keep a clear view while driving in rain.
