Hosting blockchain-as-a-service software solving the toughest global problem – Extreme Poverty

BanQu is the first ever non-crypto blockchain-based Supply Chain and Economic Passport platform, enabling transparency, traceability and sustainability for smallholder farmers (especially women), workers, miners, waste pickers, refugees and those living in extreme poverty. BanQu has also become the leading global platform for ensuring COVID-19 supplies are reaching the most vulnerable nations and communities in the MENA region. BanQu operates in 41 countries, with over half a million last-mile-first-mile beneficiaries on the platform. Organizations are using its services everyday to achieve their goals of profit-with-purpose. While maintaining ownership of their personal data, a BanQu user decides what information to share and with whom. BanQu believes that providing people with control of their own Economic Passport creates Dignity Through Identity™.
