ABOUT

Money is evolving. Technology gives us the tools to make money digital, democratic and global - and that’s what we have built. The Sögur currency - SGR - is modelled to incorporate the volatility crypto markets seek, albeit in a mitigated manner, creating an opportunity for sustainable intrinsic value growth, thanks to the bonding curve model - while also using stabilisation mechanisms to temper volatility risk when market conditions are fasting-changing and unpredictable. We built the SGR economy to grow and self-sustain; to be steered by its holder community; and to be the true evolution of money.

Research Institute

Decentralisation poses a whole host of questions - questions which extend far beyond the realms of finance and technology. Sögur's Research Institute was created to design a governance framework that embeds participants into the decision-making process of blockchain-based organisations. The result of the Institute’s research into this mechanism is a protocol which reflects the preferences and interests of all incumbent parties, which supports timely decisions based on knowledge and expertise. Our findings are not restricted to use in the Sögur project: the fruits of our efforts are being applied externally, and with positive results.
