Telcoin is a user-owned, decentralized financial platform powered by active Telcoin users, Mobile Network Operators, and Mobile Financial Service Providers. By aligning telecoms around a user-owned, decentralized financial platform, Telcoin aims to provide every mobile phone user in the world with access to fast and affordable, user-owned financial products far superior to traditional banking services.
Telcoin Pte. Ltd.
Established in July 2017 in Singapore, Telcoin leverages blockchain technology to provide access to decentralized financial services on any mobile device.

Who Are the Founders of Telcoin?.
Telcoin was founded in 2017 by Paul Neuner, a serial entrepreneur with more than 12 years of experience in the telecommunications and cybersecurity space. A graduate of The University of Notre Dame, he has lived and worked across the globe, primarily in the
Middle East and Asia.
Neuner previously co-founded Mobius, a startup that provides fraud management services for mobile network operators. In 2018, he also founded Sedona, a next-generation telecom fraud management service that offers sovereign mobile financial services.
What Makes Telcoin Unique?.
Telcoin aims to productize decentralized finance into seamless, automated, user owned applications and distribute those products and services through telecoms to every mobile phone user in the world.
With over 5 billion users, Telecoms are positioned to provide the largest base of existing, known global retail users with access to financial products via mobile phones they use every day.
DeFi has revolutionized finance by enabling the creation of user owned, automated, non-custodial applications accessible to everyone with an internet connection that execute in code rather than through intermediary institutions.
Telcoin is capturing this market opportunity by aligning with telecoms and enabling them to distribute superior, decentralized, automated financial products to their subscribers, taking on a fraction of traditional finance counterparty, execution, and custody risk.
How Many Telcoin (TEL) Tokens Are There in Circulation?
Telcoin is built on the Ethereum blockchain. At its launch in 2017, 25 percent of the tokens were distributed in crowdsale to investors. Another 15 percent were retained by the Telcoin Team, with a 5 percent liquidity fund.
The maximum number of tokens on the network are fixed at 100,000,000,000 TEL. Currently, approximately 50 percent of the tokens (50,270,110,195 TEL) have been issued.

Via the Telcoin Mobile Application, TEL users can securely store and transact their assets using a 2 for 3 multi-signature ethereum wallet and never have to worry about secure generation and store of alpha-numeric private keys or 12 to 24 word secret phrases.
