Many refugees are forced to gather their families and possessions and begin a journey through multiple countries in search of safety. For many, this is their first time away from home and they may never return. A more practical concern for these families is a financial one—money. How will we carry our savings? How will we keep our money safe on this journey?
Here at Leaf, we believe blockchain-based technologies will provide us with the tools necessary to build a cross-border financial solution for refugees and those living in crisis.
Blockchain technologies will enable Leaf to build a system that works across various countries, banks, and financial platforms. Integrating blockchain into the existing financial system will significantly boost security, transparency, and trust. With blockchain, we will be able to serve our customers anywhere along their journey.
Cryptocurrencies have taken the world by storm. Leaf believes offering cross-border services is possible without the volatility and focus on capital accumulation inherent in most crytpocurrencies. By sticking to the underlying blockchain technology instead of investing customers’ savings in cryptocurrencies, Leaf innovates in a way that complies with regulations.
Leaf is working hard to bring refugees of the world a unique solution for their financial needs. Our team has the technical and financial background needed to make this type of service work, but we also have the secret sauce—passion for our customers!
