Our mission

The opportunity for our community in Web3 payments is huge. Our mission, vision and values reflect this ambition 🚀

Our mission & vision

Blockchain & Web3 technology have the potential to dramatically improve the way payments work on the internet simply because it’s cheaper and faster to send money directly to anyone, anywhere without the need for intermediaries such as banks.
We believe in a world where Web3 becomes mainstream with 100s of millions, and ultimately billions, of users and new projects flooding in to Web3. These projects will need great payment tools, just like Web2 projects need Stripe or PayPal to power payments. That's exactly the opportunity we address as captured by our mission statement:

"Accelerate the adoption of Web3 payments and drive the cost of online payments towards zero"

​
We want to enjoy the day-to-day building of a community and exciting technology, but we also want to build a lasting company that can grow and increase the wealth of our employees, our community of holders and make a real difference serving a large number of customers over time. That means we take a long term view and fast forward 10+ years to articulate the vision we want to achieve.
In 2021, approx. 800b digital transactions were processed growing at ~19% YoY and the average transaction cost was ~$0.10 + ~2.5%. We want to radically increase this capacity and dramatically lower the costs of accepting payments on the internet. We want to build Helio into a platform that can handle trillions of transactions at near zero fees and our vision is to ultimately:

"Displace traditional payments systems”

Our Values

Transparency
We are transparent in our actions, decisions and communications with our teams and community. We welcome feedback and criticism so we can improve and let the best ideas flourish.
Integrity
Nothing matters unless our actions reflect honesty and we treat everyone equally and with respect.
Glass half full vs. half empty
We focus on the positive and look for solutions & opportunities rather than emphasise the negative.
Customer value
We build products that deliver meaningful value to our customers. We always ask ourselves: does this solve a real problem for our customer and do we solve it at least 2x better than existing alternatives?
We don’t give up
It will be hard to fulfil our mission. If it was easy, everyone else would be doing it too. What makes us different is that we won't give up until we get there.
