What is Formance ?

Formance is a programmable financial ledger that provides a foundation for money-moving applications. The ledger provides atomic multi-postings transactions and is programmable in Numscript, a built-in language dedicated to money movements. It will shine for apps that require a lot of custom, money-moving code, e.g:

  • E-commerce with complex payments flows, payments splitting, such as marketplaces
  • Company-issued currencies systems, e.g. Twitch Bits
  • In-game currencies, inventories and trading systems, e.g. Fortnite V-Bucks
  • Payment gateways using non-standard assets, e.g. learning credits
  • Local currencies and complementary finance
