What is ORCA Alliance?
The ORCA Alliance is a community-based initiative which promotes the large-scale adoption of cryptocurrencies through the ORCA Platform. ORCA, which is short for ‘Open & Regulated Cryptocurrency Adoption’, will be the first platform of its kind to globally integrate both banking and cryptocurrency accounts, as well as spearhead the growth of the crypto economy. ORCA will take advantage of the EU’s revised Directive on Payment Services (PSD2)1 , which empowers account holders with the authority to share data, removing the financial institution’s role as gatekeeper. In addition,the ORCA Platform fosters the creation of a dynamic financial services ecosystem through its ancillary components – the ORCA App Center, a one-stop shop for crypto service development, and Quest, a gamified community that fosters blockchain technology innovation.
