About Topl The idea behind Topl is simple: by building an open capital infrastructure tailor-made for developing markets, investment returns and their economic impact can be greatly improved. Topl's investment protocol is designed to help investors overcome the numerous barriers that suppress the flow of capital into developing regions, thereby raising investment to levels appropriate to the vast potential of these economies. We believe that responsible investment in young, innovative, and locally-based companies is among the most effective drivers of economic growth and long-term social impact. This is exactly what Topl seeks to enable. At Topl, our goal is to build the financial infrastructure necessary to bring low-cost capital to developing countries. The barriers that hinder investment into these emerging and frontier markets not only deprive many regions of the capital necessary for an economy to thrive but also block investors from accessing premier opportunities. More specifically, the Topl protocol is a public, permissionless blockchain built to enable development and emerging market investment. Our architecture connects both economically and socially motivated investors with businesses and projects around the world, in addition to providing the necessary support infrastructure. It is the purpose of Topl’s design and feature set to provide businesses and projects with lower borrowing costs by increasing transparency, accessibility, and information access for investors while also leveraging the use of socially-motivated capital.
