Frequently Asked Questions



What's a Jiko?

Jiko is a network that provides straightforward financial service to members across the US. Our network is engineered to give automated access to investment in US Treasury Bills. Your Jiko capitalizes on a distributed network design coupled with industry-standard encryption to provide trustworthy data security and privacy.

As you fund your Jiko, our network invests your money in low-risk US Treasury Bills.[1] T-Bills are historically liquid investments, and your money is available on demand for withdrawal.[2]

Is my Jiko a bank account or a brokerage account?

What makes your Jiko special is its innovative network design. Each Jiko has been engineered to house both a bank account and a brokerage account, and the Jiko app provides one-stop monitoring of all your Jiko activity. Without any action from you, your funds are auto-invested in T-Bills that can be sold as money is needed.

Need funds? Just initiate the release from the portfolio dashboard, and your Jiko will do the rest. Learn more about our ACH transfer limitations here.

How much does a Jiko cost?

With more than 500 early access members, the Jiko beta is currently free to US residents across 47 states on iOS and Android™ devices. As Jiko evolves, we plan to offer tiered pricing for our service plans.

Am I eligible to participate in the Jiko beta release?
