About Us

Giving To Services is both the essence of our cryptocurrency token - SVCS - and the objective of our entire organisation. Our structure ensures no one person has overwhelming control whilst giving us the fluid autonomy to be able to support those who need our help globally.

Our aim is simple – to support the many public service workers, internationally, who face ever greater financial uncertainty by enabling access to cutting edge, tailor made, decentralised, financial tools.

Our vision is to ensure that even in the face of unprecedented social, environmental and economic change, we continue to adapt and deliver innovative solutions that protect the interests of public service workers.

Healthcare, education, the armed forces, fire services, security services and other public service workers are often under-rewarded and typically face great uncertainty at retirement. We are empowering everyone to participate in the creation of a brighter and more sustainable future for those that society relies on most.

Wherever the collective journey of humanity takes us in the coming years, we promise we’ll continue to evolve to meet the needs of those who can most ensure our survival.

Decentralised Finance

Through the use of blockchain and cryptocurrency technology, we are providing a next generation “DeFi” service (Decentralised Finance) that offers exciting new ways for us all to take personal responsibility for giving back to public service workers and alternative avenues for those workers to direct their own financial destinies.

 

Simplicity is one of the main driving forces for our whole team as we know that our ability to harness efficiency and our ability to share our vision depends on it. While technology can often be highly complex, we understand that with careful attention to detail, no challenge is out of reach or beyond our ability to distil into simple concepts and language.

Our Team

Our combined team represents a wide variety of experience from differing fields, yet we are all bound by a shared passion for improving life for those who themselves improve the lives of so many others. We continue to work with and be inspired by leading experts in the technology, financial and specifically the emerging blockchain sectors - forging great friendships and powerful partnerships in the process.
