Humaniq Brings Its Users the Expertise Needed to Stay Ahead in a New Economy

New Economy

London, August 9, 2018 – Humaniq, the London-based Fintech firm that provides next-generation financial services for the unbanked, today launches a pilot project Humaniq Farm for users in the agricultural business, in order to empower them to advance as entrepreneurs.

According to a study conducted by the Humaniq team, agriculture is a vital sector for sub-Saharan Africa. However, given Africa’s rapid economic transformation, demographic changes, fast urbanisation and a shortage of qualitative data, there is a risk of farmers lacking the expertise to take advantage of new market opportunities. The overwhelming majority of Humaniq users are students living in larger cities who are from rural areas and farming families and Humaniq’s goal is to provide them with educational and motivating content.

Humaniq Brings Financial InclusionThe pilot project Humaniq Farm is a platform aimed at improving the business knowledge that African users have today. The Humaniq team’s plan is to start with general and inspiring features and move towards more complex and applied knowledge in terms of market segmentation, targeting, positioning in the agricultural market with a focus on the needs of target audiences.  The content from Humaniq.Farm.com will simultaneously be included in the Humaniq mobile app that runs even on low-end devices and already has more than 400,000 users in 16 African countries onboard. All Humaniq Farm content is available in both English and Swahili.

“A sustainable and resilient agriculture sector is vital for sub-Saharan Africa’s economic future. It is a home to nearly half of the world’s uncultivated land that is able to be brought into production. Yet a lack of knowledge is a substantial barrier to a prosperous Africa and its people. The Humaniq Farm test project is aimed at eradicating illiteracy in the agricultural sector step-by-step and providing both experienced farmers and those starting out across Africa with the skills and motivation to succeed, said Dennis Nombo, Product Manager at Humaniq.

NEW YORKOct. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Chainalysis, the leading provider of cryptocurrency compliance and investigation solutions, has completed a global roll-out of its compliance solution with Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange by trade volume, to help address the challenges at the intersection of cryptocurrencies, regulators and traditional financial institutions.

“Cryptocurrency businesses of all sizes face the same core challenge: earning the trust of regulators, financial institutions and users,” said Jonathan Levin, Co-Founder and COO of Chainalysis. “We expect many to follow Binance’s lead to build world-class AML compliance programs to satisfy regulators globally and build trust with major financial institutions.”

BinanceChainalysis’ compliance software, Chainalysis KYT (“Know Your Transaction”), is the only real-time transaction monitoring solution for cryptocurrencies. The software uses pattern recognition, proprietary algorithms and millions of open source references to identify and categorize thousands of cryptocurrency services to raise live alerts on transactions involved in suspicious activity.

“By working with Chainalysis, we are able to continue building a foundational compliance program that enables the next phase of our growth,” said Wei Zhou, CFO at Binance. “Our vision is to provide the infrastructure for a blockchain ecosystem and increase the freedom of money globally, while adhering to regulatory mandates in the countries we serve.”

This best-in-class solution enables cryptocurrency businesses and financial institutions to comply with Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations, while simultaneously making it easier for companies supporting cryptocurrencies to open bank accounts.

In April, Chainalysis secured $16M in Series A funding led by Benchmark to deploy Chainalysis KYT and expand its coverage of cryptocurrencies. It serves over 150 of the world’s leading cryptocurrency businesses, financial institutions and government agencies.
