How Technology Is Opening The Way for Financial Inclusion Of World’s 2 Billion Unbanked
Humaniq coin is steadily going up which gave us an inspiration to ask our FB followers of what their expectations are for HMQ dynamics until the end of this year. Here are the results: the majority sees HMQ worth more than $1.5 which we hope comes true soon!

It featured around 100 speakers and more than 2,000 attendees from the leading industry startups, investors, financial institutions, enterprise tech leaders who are building the foundations of the blockchain and digital currency economy.

Humaniq Games! Humaniq Faces! Humaniq Weekly.
Last week Humaniq launched a new series of games in several emerging African countries, including Cameroon, Niger state, Nigeria, Lesotho, Tanzania and South Africa. These games were held for the target groups of Humaniq, mostly people from rural regions where Blockchain is still an unfamiliar technology. During the week from the 2nd to the 10th of June, 7 games were arranged with the help of Humaniq ambassadors, hosting games in their own home towns. These were mostly open-air events. For each game, 10 participants were chosen. Each person had to bring as many other people into their group as they could within an hour. The picture of the each new participant was taken the same moment he was joining the group. Also he was given a game banknote and a number plate.
The idea was to imitate one of the basic features of the Humaniq app, where one can earn money every time they invite a new user. The winner was the person who managed to bring the most people. Small monetary rewards were provided for first (160$), second (80$) and third place (40$).
So basically, the reason for arranging such games was to introduce Humaniq to the people it’s being created for, and also to get them acquainted with Blockchain.
In the next few days I’ll be getting the videos of the games as well as reports from our ambassadors, and will share them with you then. Whilst you can watch Alex Fork telling about Humaniq game in India!
We used to say that Humaniq is made for 2 billion of unbanked. But does this mean that the rest of 5 billions of the world’s population never know what poverty is? Of course — not. Over 3 billion people — that is almost half the world — live on less than $2.50 a day and at least 80% of humanity lives on less than $10 a day. This leaves no hesitation that the financial inclusion needs to be improved as soon as possible. But why is it so difficult to achieve more and what are the obstacles that need to be overcomed? Unsurprisingly, regulation is one of them.

Humaniq CEO Participates in Fintech Exclusive Event in Cambridge.
Humaniq has spoken at a gathering of the cryptocurrency world’s key players. It was held to hear findings from an influential Cambridge economist on the increasing impact of the digital money.
The event, held by the Cambridge Network, which brings together academics and entrepreneurs from the city’s booming high-tech sector, heard how cryptocurrency is now worth $40bn globally, and growing. Dr Garrick Hileman, ranked in the top 100 most influential economists in the UK and Ireland, said in the 14th June event’s keynote address that the data shows the significant economic impact cryptocurrency now has.
Hileman, a research fellow at Cambridge’s Centre for Alternative Finance, set out the findings from the first comprehensive worldwide study of cryptocurrency in his keynote, The Growing Significance of Cryptocurrencies, sponsored by Citi Bank.Dr. Garrick Hileman
He told the entrepreneurs and investors behind startups at the forefront of fintech that an estimated 3 million people now use alternative money, and cryptocurrencies other than Bitcoin are gaining traction and increasing market share in the $40bn market.
Dinis Guarda, CEO of Humaniq, another key player speaking on a panel of start-ups, as a cryptocurrency in the top ten by market valuation. He underlined to those gathered the importance of cryptocurrency in supporting new, decentralised, economic activity.Dinis Guarda
Guarda spoke of Humaniq’s road map for the coming months, and gave a glimpse into the much-anticipated use of the Blockchain: putting it to social good, with measurable impact in opening up banking to the world’s 2 billion unbanked.
Dinis Guarda, CEO Humaniq:
“Blockchain can be considered as the Internet 2.0, it is rapidly changing the way business is conducted, and how people, governments and businesses operate and go about adding value to the daily lives of individuals. It will not be a surprise if practically all areas of daily life are touched by the Blockchain in the near-future.”
Humaniq plans to continue connecting with the fintech sector in Cambridge, with members invited to speak at several more upcoming events, the next at the Judge Business School in July. Humaniq will also be partnering with various networks, institutes and startups on future events around the Blockchain, cryptocurrency and tech for social good and the future of social innovation.
Humaniq: more communication, less Internet traffic. (Case #8)
(Cases of How Humaniq can be used in the future)
Smartphones can be liberating, especially with an app that gives free banking services to the unbanked. But the cost of using them can be prohibitive in emerging economies.
Our mission is to provide banking for everybody and cryptocurrency for the many. There is a huge opportunity to improve the lives of those forced to pay exorbitant fees when they make any financial transaction. Smartphone technology makes this possible. We want to go further. We want to bring down even more costs that act as a barrier to so many improving their lives.
That is why our developers working on our app for launch in August have found a way to bring down the cost of that technology for people in the Global South. For example, we are working to give our users a chat system that does not require large and expensive amounts of data.Kwanzulu — Natal, Africa.
Research ICT Africa found that 1GB of data cost more than $5 in 30 Africa countries and over $10 in 15 of these, and people in South Africa spending on average a fifth of their incomes on data as they use more services. Applications for chatting are a big contributor to these costs.
The chat system that comes with the Humaniq app will change all that. It is a decentralised chat system, which means unlike with messaging apps, the messages are encrypted and not running from a centralised server. In contrast, Humaniq provides decentralised chatting, as well as decentralised banking, so users own their data and their conversation and transactions are private.
The potential disadvantage, however, is that synchronising with the Blockchain could eat 300MB of data per month.Our developers, however, have come up with an elegant solution. They are keeping the interface simple with an ‘abstraction layer’ above the chat library that means that messages requires no more than 10MB of data a month.
And the Humaniq app chat will provide the full functionality of other chat apps, including file transfer and audio memos, but at a fraction of the cost.
Also to pursue our democratic mission, our in-app chat uses a text-to-speech and speech-to-text system that supports 10 languages for people who cannot read. Reducing complexity and reducing costs are both vital to expanding access to the digital economy so that people can more easily earn, receive and borrow money. We are excited by the possibilities the app will open up for so many people. Watch this space for further updates on the development of the Humaniq app ahead of the launch.
