JAN3 is a Bitcoin technology company focused on expanding access to Bitcoin and financial freedom around the world. We provide tools for individuals, enterprises, and nation-states to benefit from a free and open financial system based on Bitcoin.



Our company's name is inspired by the message left by Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin, in the Genesis Block: “The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on the brink of second bailout for banks.” The inception of Bitcoin on January 3rd, 2009, signified the beginning of a new financial era. Now is our opportunity to act and establish a more equitable, transparent, and efficient economy based on a Bitcoin Standard.
