Integral V1: Real-Time Finance for Web3 Teams
0x5f81
September 20th, 2022

What is real-time finance, and why does it matter now?

Real-time bookkeeping, accounting, and treasury management allow teams to make better, faster decisions.

Most businesses get financial insights 2-4 weeks after a month’s or quarter’s end - which is adequate in traditional markets where currencies are relatively stable and liquidity risk is nominal. But, web3 businesses don’t have this luxury. A 2-week delay in actionable insights can be catastrophic - especially if your competitors have access to fresh, day-of financial data.

At Integral, we believe that 1) real-time accounting, treasury management, and financial analysis will soon be the norm, and 2) web3 teams will lead the charge.

Web3 is the perfect place to start

We chose to build a real-time finance tool for web3 teams first for 3 reasons:

1) Real-time finance is essential for web3 companies

In web2, insights come 7-30 days AFTER the month-end. In web3, 30 days could be the difference between owning $10M of ETH and $5M of ETH.

2) Real-time (RT) finance is an edge for web3 and web2 organizations

  • RT P&L = faster, better decisions

  • RT balance sheet = better use of treasury

  • RT cashflows = happier collaborators

  • RT audits = more trust -> leads to more customers

    All of which compound quickly.

3) Crypto is the fastest growing non-cash payment method in the US (10yr CAGR)

  • Crypto: 63% (globally)

  • Credit/debit cards: 7.8%

  • ACH: 7.2%

  • Wires: 2.5%

  • Cheques: -4%

Additionally, cryptocurrencies have amazing properties like near-instant settlement and programmability. The Integral team believes that the web3 values of transparency, financial independence, and permissionless access to financial services are beneficial for the world.
