The world’s changing - very, very quickly. Our children are surrounded by digital media. It’s their future. Unfortunately, while our tools, our mobiles, tablets and laptops, are extraordinary, much of the digital content is not.

Our games are both educationally rigorous and fun to play. That’s not all. Smarter Learn not only has games, we also offer supporting material in the form of eBooks and worksheets, all based on the National Curriculum. Our product are available both as mobile apps and soon to be online, all with built in analytics.  Read more

We are We have created a design for a fully decentralised exchange mechanism able to facilitate secure exchanges between cryptocurrencies and also fiat. A fully decentralised exchange will allow the spread of cryptocurrency by removing what is arguably the last barrier to entry for the technology. The design is fully decentralised, when a user signs up, if in possession of just one currency, be it USD, BTC or LTC they can then use this one currency to transact for all the other currencies on the system. This means bitcoin can be adopted by anyone with a desktop, tablet or smart phone without having to go via a central exchange to buy bitcoin: they just download the wallet-client and buy some. Because it is decentralised the exchange cannot be taken down by any single government or territory.  Read more
