COTI is the world’s first blockchain protocol optimized for decentralized payments, designed for use by merchants, governments, payment dApps and stable coin issuers. COTI Pay, our first app, already boasts a network of 5,000 merchants and 80,000 users. COTI uses a DAG (directed acyclic graph) ledger to address the shortcomings of blockchain platforms that make them unsuitable for supporting mainstream and everyday transactional needs.
