We already proving our success as we are past pilots and POCs like our competition that continues to struggle. We are on track to enable 100 million people out of extreme poverty by end of 2023.

Problem - Gap

People living in extreme poverty are invisible in global supply chains. BanQu has solved that fundamental gap that contributes to global extreme poverty and gender inequality.

Use Case: Why use blockchain or other technologies?

BanQu is 100% built on ethereum blockchain but without monetizing the crypto. Our blockchain platform is used everyday across hundreds of thousands of poorest farmers, refugees, slums and supply chains across 14 countries because we use the fundamentals of blockchain - the ability to Own, Access, Monetize & Permission your own economic identity/ passport.
