We give fiat money superpowers

Public Mint is an open blockchain blended with an API platform that allows fiat money to get all the benefits of a cryptocurrency, minus the volatility and complexity. People and businesses from all over the world are free to build all kinds of fiat-based applications and services on top of Public Mint, fueled by money as we know it - without the limitations of traditional banking rails.

We combine the best of both worlds in our mission to democratize finance and bring the benefits of blockchain to everyone.

About Public Mint

Founded in 2018, the Public Mint network launched officially in July, 2020, and since then we’ve been working on adding new features and functionalities - including the EARN Program and MINT token, released in February 2021.


With offices in the US, UK and Europe, we are a truly multicultural company with a growing global presence.
