e-Money is a blockchain-based electronic payment system that aims to make digital money transfers more accessible to everyone. The e-Money platform processes transactions with currency-backed stablecoins that are fast, transparent, and fully collateralized. With an interest-bearing mechanism and the support for major currencies at scale, e-Money stablecoins are highly efficient and liquid, giving them a significant advantage over other algorithmic stablecoins in fiat-backed economies. e-Money stablecoins function more like a tokenized bank deposit than a fiat-pegged currency, as it fluctuates based on incurred interest rates.
e-Money currently offers several European currency-backed stablecoins such as the eEUR, the eCHF, and tokens backed by Scandinavian currencies (eNOK, eDKK, and eSEK). e-Money is already working with multiple European banks to hold its stablecoin deposits. The fidelity and transparency of e-Money stablecoins will be ensured by Ernst & Young providing quarterly Proof of Funds.
e-Money’s native token NGM, is used to secure the e-Money network by bonding with one or more validators. Additionally, NGM token can be used to pay for transaction fees and as a staking token for users to earn rewards on the platform.
The e-Money team brings together professionals with over 15 years’ experience within algorithmic trading, financial infrastructure, corporate venturing, and blockchain industries. Backed by leading institutions, including TRGC, ChainLayer, and Brilliance VC.

The e-Money protocol is built for the issuance of a range of interest-bearing currency-backed stablecoins reflecting various world currencies. Each token is backed by a reserve of assets denominated in its underlying currency. e-Money currently supports the Euro (EUR), Swiss Franc (CHF), Swedish Krona (SEK), Norwegian Krone (NOK) and the Danish Krone (DKK) with a host of additional currencies pegged for release in 2021. The project is dedicated to total transparency with quarterly reserve audits performed by Ernst & Young.
Unlike most existing stablecoins which aim to maintain a static 1:1 peg with their underlying assets, the value of e-Money’s currency-backed tokens continually shifts in line with the interest accrued on the reserve assets. This means that holders benefit from the interest accrued on their assets while they sit securely in your wallet. The e-Money blockchain supports instant payments at scale and includes a DEX for easy conversion between currencies. e-Money expects to integrate with Cosmos Hub, Ethereum and Avalanche in the first half of 2021.
