A partnership has been signed between the two players in the presence of the Minister of Economy, Mr. Etienne Schneider, who congratulated both companies for having managed to combine their skills and their expertise to develop an innovative service based on both blockchain and digital identity.

Gloneta integrates instant cross-currency transactions into a mobile messenger (chat), leveraging the revolutionary blockchain technology. Based on its expertise in managing trusted digital identities, LuxTrust will provide secure customer identification and authentication services to the new App Gloneta App.

Sending money in a chat-application
Gloneta is a mobile application which, for the first time, extends the social networking experience by providing the opportunity to transfer money. It offers an easy way to send money instantly to people in their own and foreign currencies. Gloneta implements blockchain technology to allow instant money transfers directly from user to user (so-called peer-to-peer), without using a bank as intermediary, at zero or very low cost.

To access Gloneta, end users have only to complete the registration and identity verification procedure once. The new partnership between SnapSwap and LuxTrust allows LuxTrust subscribers to open Gloneta accounts and access service without any additional verification, almost in one click. The integration of LuxTrust within the Gloneta App allows end users to be fully authenticated and thereby to execute high-level secured money transfers.

Gloneta has been available on iOS and Android in all EU countries since the beginning of September 2016 and supports Euros, Pounds Sterling and US Dollars. Other currencies and new functionalities will follow shortly, such as contactless mobile payment solutions.
