The platform brings about an unprecedented level of transparency and security to the market using a combination of mobile applications with smart contracts and blockchain technology.
Mr. Iglesias, the Company’s CEO, commented, “We are very pleased with the rapid development and completion of the Alpha-testing phase. Our intimate knowledge of the industry along with extensive client and consumer discussions, brought about this highly in-demand platform. The blockchain-based platform is just the first of multiple platforms itsBchain and iQSTEL are working on to bring the telecommunications market into the 21st Century. We plan to offer this mobile application and blockchain platform to our current customers, the largest mobile operators in the word, as Vodafone, Telefonica, Millicom, among others.”
