LAPO Coin (LAX), a Swiss Cryptocurrency

LAPO Coin is a global cryptocurrency, which might exhibits low volatility, high speed transactions and a solid level of privacy and security. Ergo the traits that an optimal cryptocurrency should have.

Simplicity along with elegance of concept, easy integration points for partners and businesses, and the ability to work with an exchange, are some additional traits that will assist in the wider adoption of LAPO Coin.

Cryptocoins like Bitcoin and Ethereum are highly volatile. On any given day, it is not uncommon to see an increase or a decrease of upwards of 10-15%. This makes daily usage of most cryptocurrencies very problematic and very inconvenient to say the least.

This new generation cryptocurrency will have a monetary policy, as central banks do, but governed by an artificial intelligence algorithm. The LAPO Coin is designed to let you get the most out of the cryptocurrency-world but without worrying about price volatility, instead, LAX growth will be incremental.

Bitcoin was born to avoid a centralized power and human interference and we want to keep that spirit alive. For that reason, we are building an open source self-critical, intellectually honest, and adaptable Artificial Intelligence that can handle the monetary policy: The Stability AI.

LAPO Coin (LAX) technical features:

  • Fast transaction time
  • High level of privacy
  • Low-volatility
  • ASIC resistant algorithm Lyra2zz
  • Next level Aliasing system *
  • Atomic Swap functionalities *

* features under development

LAPO Stability AI

The LAPO Stability AI is an Artificial Intelligence that analyze and calculate monetary policy and it is used to protect the coin against artificial price volatility. Our completely autonomous Stability AI can detect and avoid illegal market manipulation. Thanks to its Artificial Intelligence, it can analyze the market, social network, news and historical data. This feature then is able to predict and understand, if and when, an illegal manipulation is taking place. The most common trigger for intervention from the LAPO Stability AI is a “pump and dump” scheme commonly perpetrated by groups of crypto traders. Using our Seigniorage Shares approach, our Stability AI is able to neutralize this threat.

LAPO Coin is a non-collateralized coin, and it is independent of all other currencies. Even if the US Dollar and Ether collapse, a non-collateralized coin like LAPO Coin could survive them as a stable store of value. Unlike the central banks of nation states, a non-collateralized stable coin would not have perverse incentives to inflate or deflate the currency. Its algorithm would only have one global mandate: stability and long-term organic growth.

LAPO ePlatform

Our platform will integrate a set of easy-to-use financial tools that aim to facilitate the broad acceptance of cryptocurrencies.

The LAPO ePLATFORM is made up of a simple and effective multi-currency wallet for private and business use (desktop and mobile version), cutting-edge payment API and Plugins that allow an easy integration of payment request in any cryptocurrency, Point of Sale (POS) app that can be downloaded in any modern device (computer, cell phone or tablet) and will integrate NFC communication support to enable payment with a simple touch or by scanning a QR code.

The core currency of the LAPO ePlatform is LAPO Coin (LAX). All transactions running on the ePlatform could always be converted into LAPO Coin immediately and automatically. The LAPO Coin could then be reconverted at any time to other cryptocurrencies, or fiat at the present exchange rate.

LAPO Blockchain brings stability with traditional Swiss expertise in financial services to crypto assets worldwide.
