Frequently asked questions

Everything you need to know about the product.
What is Polity’s Business Model?
Polity Network is a DeWealth B2B2C marketplace where Providers, Merchants, Developers, Investors and Operators are Polity Network participants. Polity offers its technology and services to Providers, who are professional and, where required, regulated, crypto market participants. These Providers (e.g. Advisors, Managers, Experts) may, in turn, bring their customers, individual and institutional Investors, to the Network. Merchants are invited to onboard Polity marketplace to offer their products to the Providers and Investors. Polity will be open for individual Investors to join on a reverse enquiry basis. These Investors will be free to choose their Network Service Providers (“NSPs”). Polity will not engage directly with Investors or provide any services to them. Polity Network will be supported by the Operators who will validate transactions and provide administration services to the Network. Most Operators will also offer NSP services.
What is DeWealth?
DeWealth is the decentralization of wealth management using blockchain technology. It offers individuals greater autonomy, transparency and security in managing their wealth while safeguarding their privacy, all in a user-friendly way. DeWealth harnesses elements like self-sovereign identity, smart contracts and non-custodial asset ownership to enhance user control and streamline compliance, fostering a more inclusive and efficient financial ecosystem.
Is Polity a decentralized network?
Polity currently has one Operator and NSP, Bastion Cooperative, and is not yet decentralized. We expect other Operators and NSPs start joining the Network following the Public MVP release at the end of 2023 with Polity becoming progressively more decentralized over the next 18 months.
