Humaniq: empowering the unbanked

01

Who are
the unbanked?

Today there are 2.5 billion people on Earth without access to basic financial services. They are left dependent upon cash and deprived of any hope for stability or the chance to improve their living conditions.

02

What is
Humaniq?

Humaniq's primary goal is the financial inclusion of the world's unbanked through the use of blockchain technology, which ensures the safety and stability of financial operations.

03

The
challenge

The aim of the Humaniq Global Challenge is to bring together a community of like-minded individuals, from which the 10 best projects will be selected for a chance to enter the Humaniq ecosystem.

05 What is the
Humaniq
Expedition

What is the
Humaniq
Expedition

The teams behind the three best projects
will be sent on a trip to Africa, where
they will meet with local unbanked
populations to learn about their lives
and financial habits.

Developers will meet with representatives from various
different communities, conduct interviews, model games
based around Humaniq and develop an understanding
of local culture and customs.

This will enable the testing of hypotheses and perfection
of the projects, taking into account the developer’s newly
gained knowledge of the local people.

05

06 On the way
to Kenya

We have selected Kenya as it is one of the safest African
countries, with a large unbanked population and
widespread access to mobile internet.

Those taking part in the trip will receive all the necessary
inoculations and will travel a well-established route with a
professional guide and security.

the expedition will take
place 10 - 19 November 2017
