New Episode! #062 Beyond Finance for the Unbanked
How Crypto Can Humanize Finance
Cryptocurrency is in the spotlight for the seemingly lucrative trade opportunities but there's the almost forgotten aspect of why Bitcoin came about. Trading is for the ones who have a certain level of wealth. What about the others who are left out in the economic activities that we all enjoy and benefit from? Crypto was invented for everyone, and in my view especially for the ones that have no access to traditional finance, the unbanked and underbanked.
In this episode, I speak with Taynaah Reis, the CEO of Moeda Seeds Bank from Brazil. She not only set out the blockchain-based mobile bank but stepped it up further to provide education for finance and business building. They have a marketplace where these people can launch their products via e-commerce. Their projects are being tokenized, and NFTs are minted.
Here is what you will learn in this episode,
- Who is Taynaah Reis
- What is Moeda Seeds Bank and its mission
- Why isn't providing financial services isn't enough
- What the underlying socio-economic problem that needs to be solved
- Her advice for people coming into this industry
Have a great week ahead!
