How are you different?
CREDITS is the platform for creating blockchain and smart contract services that are based on price and speed. Now, despite the popularity of Ethereum, this network has many disadvantages, including its speed and price of transaction. This platform is used primarily to issue tokens, ICOs, and to create services with one-time operations that do not require high speed. Whereas our platform is perfect for creating products on a blockchain: financial and payment services, the Internet of Things, gambling, banking services such as loans and fundings, accounting of the exchange transactions and many others. We’re capable of conducting transactions in about 0.01 seconds. We are making the platform valid for a wide range of users.
Imagine: financial and credit services, trade, medicine, identification, exchanges, Internet of Things, and others working on the same blockchain in autonomous mode.
Why will you do well?
The platform CREDITS can execute more than 1,000,000 transactions per second and has an execution time of 0.01 seconds. Because transaction fees are minimal, high-volume applications are possible in a way that no other available blockchain can match.
Users of the platform will be able to create completely self-contained and independent financial technology services and other applications that work within the network without the involvement of third-party systems.

CEO Igor Chugunov: As for me, I’m a banking specialist and I have over 7 years experience in creating financial and Internet services in banking and loans sphere. For the past 3-4 years I’ve been very interested in blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies, and I thought it had great potential in the financial area but there were many problems, such as slow speed and high costs. So I decided to put together a team and make a blockchain platform that will eliminate those issues.
Our technical director and co-founder is Evgeny Butyaev. He has been engaged for more than 10 years in software development, of which 3 years are in the field of blockchain.
There are over 50 people working on CREDITS now, and all members of our team have been working with cryptocurrencies for a long time and have good knowledge of blockchain.
We have a young ambitious team in which there is no clear hierarchy, as in top companies. Certainly, there is a department of developers and programmers, a team of marketers, editors. It is necessary to say separately about the staff working with investors, they have a hard time working. The increased interest in our project has increased the workload on their department at times.
