BanQu has developed the first ever blockchain Economic Identity technology solution that enables a secure and immutable platform for creating economic opportunities for people around the world who are refugees and/or living in extreme poverty.
Our technology provides a platform where refugees, the displaced, and the world’s poorest can maintain a free, secure online profile that allows them to begin tracking their relationships and transactions. Over time, they build a recognizable, vetted economic identity, which is the base prerequisite to participating in any form of ownership or transactions in the global economy. While maintaining ownership of their personal information, a BanQu user decides what information to share and with whom. Providing people with control of their own Economic Identity creates Dignity Through Identity™.
Do You See Blockchain Here?™
What is Blockchain? BanQu’s Definition: Everyone who participates in a trade or transaction gets an equal and secured copy of the transaction.
In simple terms, it is a new type of data application or ledger, storing immutable data, which can be directly shared, without requiring a central administrator. This contrasts with traditional databases, which have one single administrator that owns and controls the data. The new “protocol” or design of the blockchain enables transactions directly between two or more parties, authenticated by mass collaboration and powered by economic incentives and self-interests. It is enabling the democratization of data, money, and eventually power. Also, blockchain transactions are based on cryptography which makes them inherently more secure than any traditional database or system today.

Building Economic Identities
In Kenya, BanQu created a digital identity for several hundred refugees and individuals in extreme poverty zones, with the aim of creating a long-term, secure economic profile they could leverage for access to financial and government services.
Supply Chain Management
Through our supply chain solution, we are improving the delivery of essential medications to poor communities. In agricultural supply chains, we are providing end-to-end transparency, from manufacturer to farmer.
BanQu is piloting small-plot farmer land mapping, especially for women farmers in Latin America, where access to finance is hard due to lack of land rights and outdated property registries.
