The stablecoin that lifts people out of extreme poverty.

That's Global Income Coin, or Glo.

A non-profit, USD-pegged, 100% backed stablecoin.

The stablecoin is backed by USD in a custodial bank account and US government bonds. The US government bonds generate interest payments. We redistribute that interest as basic income, by sending money to individuals directly.

The more we collectively use Glo as a currency, the higher our market cap, the more basic income we can generate. If Glo replaces all money worldwide (M2 globally is $130 trillion) and our average US Treasury rate is 3%, we are able to generate $3.9 trillion in basic income per year. Estimates are that $175 billion per year would solve extreme poverty worldwide. We can reach that by replacing 5% of all money. Our mission is to eradicate extreme poverty around the world.

We'll start distributing to selected countries first by donating to GiveDirectly's basic income program. We're not endorsed by or affiliated with GiveDirectly.
