MaPS SA, an offshoot of the company Prem1um SA, was set up in October 2011 to publish the MaPS System software package and to focus on developing the application and distributing it via a network of integrator partners across Europe.
Prem1um previously designed, developed and rented out MaPS in connection with its multimedia marketing activities as a hosted solution for European key accounts after it was first created in December 2005. Prem1um was launched with start-up capital of €150,000, and reached a gross margin of €5,500,000 in 2010.
Following the company’s growth and the rollout of multimedia marketing activities, CEO Thierry Muller raised the capital required to set up MaPS SA with financial partners from Luxembourg. MaPS SA is now entirely focused on the publication and development of the MaPS System software suite.
Several other collaborators and partners also contribute to the work of MaPS SA, all sharing the core values of this new software publication and development company: an ability to listen to clients’ needs and to offer flexibility, unfailing commitment and high-quality services. Selected in the support program Eurostars for innovative European projects, MaPS SA is supported by the Ministry of Economy of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and by Luxinnovation..

Resardis is a decentralized cryptocurrency trading platform based on the side chain technology, and eliminates the security problems of centralized exchanges and intrinsic issues of decentralized platforms. Just like the cryptocurrencies themselves, Resardis lives on the blockchain.
This essentially means that all the trading happens on the blockchain, secured by the state-of-art cryptography and immune to manipulation. Users are the sole owners of their funds, and the exchange does not have any control over the assets.
There is nothing stored on the exchange servers, and therefore nothing to steal by the hackers or the exchange admins. You might wonder how we overcome the shortcomings of a decentralized exchange, in that case directly skip over to the side-chain section.
As a decentralized platform, Resardis has a zero-knowledge policy about the customers. Users do not need to sign up with sensitive and personal information.
In this context, Resardis is just an intermediary platform which helps traders to find each other and facilitates trading. Just create an address, stay anonymous and start trading.
No way to conclude who did what. Users have full control over the funds, meaning they are the only owners of the private keys.
