There are 2 billion people in the world in the category of unbanked or underbanked, meaning they have limited or no access to the financial system the western world take for granted. Blockbonds strives to democratize the access to financial markets for everyone in the world, by bridging the cryptosphere with traditional finance.
By utilizing blockchain technology, we are able to create a payment system, in which everyone can manage their savings, payments and investments in an honest, transparent and secure way.
Through our technical solution, cash societies can be eliminated through the adoption of our mobile banking app, operating with full reserve in our bank account. Our product enables online shopping, investments in a variety of financial instruments such as mutual funds and commodities and most importantly real-time transfers integrated with card solutions, making everyday shopping safer and more convenient.
