About Request Network

Request is a decentralized1 network that allows anyone to request a payment (a Request Invoice)for which the recipient can pay in a secure way. All of the information is stored in a decentralized authentic ledger. This results in cheaper, easier, and more secure payments, and it allows for a wide range of automation possibilities. To become the backbone of world trade, Request integrates a general ledger (in the accounting sense of the term), which is:

  • Universal because it is designed to support 100% of global transactions, regardless of currency, legislation or language. Request is built to last.
  • Smart because unlike an existing standard accounting book, Request is at the origin of the exchanges and integrates a computerized trade code, as well as the management of a multitude of payment terms.

Today, their absence makes the whole system inefficient and absolutely unready for the digital and IoT (Internet Of Things) revolution that is taking place.

Request can be seen as a layer on top of Ethereum, which allows requests for  payments that satisfy a legal framework.It is also possible to see currencies as tools to complete Request transactions. In this sense, Request is more global than any currency.


- The request can be detected and paid in a secure way, without the need to involve a third party settings
- The request is saved on an immutable, authentic ledger, which acts as a unique source of truth for accounting and auditing processes settings
- Request integrates a trade law system and works across every legislation settings
- Request works with every global currency settings
- Request is designed to be flexible, to last hundreds of years, and to work with IoT, whilst being compatible with any future systems.

Technical Info

Technical details:  REQ tokens are ERC20 tokens which are necessary to participate in the network and create advanced Requests. The REQ will be paid as fees to the validators of the Request Network (i.e. can be anyone staking his request tokens) and to the developers of the extension. As an investor the fee that one will receive is proportional to the use of the Request Network. The source code:  The code of the product is not available. Proof of developer:  Public team
