FQX is radically facilitating trade finance & money markets by using eNotes™
An eNote™ is an unconditional promise to pay a specific sum to another party at a specific future date. The eNote™ is based on Blockchain technology and can be flexibly sold and transferred to any third party (i.e. an investor). When compared to other financing options, eNotes™ as negotiable instruments outperform through their financial steering capabilities and global transferability. eNotes™ are based on the globally proven, formerly paper-based “promissory notes”.
FQX is the first market-ready solution for eNotes™ built on a banking-grade Blockchain (Swiss Trust Chain) with a unique, patent-pending authentication mechanism (based on regulated and qualified electronic signatures provided by Swisscom). The eNote™ infrastructure can be integrated into financing platforms of banks and Fintechs, allowing their customers to benefit from the entire eNote™ lifecycle from issuance to settlement.

FQX is the first market-ready solution for eNotes™ which have the potential to radically facilitate trade finance & money markets. The enforcement regime applicable to eNotes™ is recognized in over 165 countries.
