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 eWallet, operating with full reserve in our bank account. Our eWallet 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. Blockbonds was founded by Jens Glaso where Baard Bjerkaas and Jesper Ugland joined as co-founders after an idea by Jens Glaso on how to utilize mobile technology to reach the less fortunate with financial services was launched.
