Building a Banking Alternative for Emerging Economies

CEO & Co-Founder,

For those living within established western economies, Bitcoin and other crypto assets are mostly viewed as highly speculative investment instruments. However, and if the recent decisions in El Salvador are indicative of what is to come elsewhere, to those in developing nations it better serves its true purpose as a currency, in many cases leading to increased price stability in these markets. strongly believe that Crypto has the capacity to change our financial systems for the better, especially in emerging markets where adoption is accelerating at a higher rate.


Shah joined Paul Gordon to tell us more about their plans for developing a truly crypto-native banking platform.

Share the love ❤️
