Published

Humaniq

London, September 20, 2018 – International FinTech company Humaniq today expands its global reach by launching the Humaniq app with full functionality – wallet & crypto emissions – in a further 24 countries. The launch, from Asia to Latin America,  takes the total list of nations Humaniq App operates into 46. The expansion will provide both social and financial empowerment to the global unbanked population and widen the horizon for financial inclusion initiatives.

Launching the app in new continents with already close to half a million users onboard after less than a year Humaniq is ready for further rapid growth and achievements. As of today, the Humaniq App can be downloaded in 24 new countries: Republic of the Philippines, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Papua New Guinea, Mongolia, Seychelles, Belize, Dominican Republic, The Bahamas, Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname, Paraguay, Oriental Republic of Uruguay, México, Albania, Montenegro, Macedonia, Republic of Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Republic of Iceland.

It is no coincidence that there are Southeast Asia and Latin American countries in the list of nations Humaniq now operates in. Humaniq will fill in the gaps in financial inclusion, bringing knowledge and skills that will help people to use financial products and services effectively and with a greater awareness of their rights and responsibilities in financial markets.

HumaniqToday, there are approximately 1.7 billion people without any access to financial accounts, according to the World Bank’s Global Findex Database 2017 (Findex). Traditionally, these unbanked individuals are unable to prove their identity, which makes it impossible to gain access to traditional banking facilities. Guided by the goal of expanding the banking sphere to the masses in historically underserved economies, the Humaniq team provides the unbanked with a wallet, bio-ID, secure messaging, end-to-end encryption, live support chat features, and transaction fees close to zero through the unique Hybrid Blockchain that the Humaniq App is built on.

Following its mission, Humaniq is focused on raising awareness of financial services and introducing FinTech innovation to the African region, aiming to empower the continent’s populace. Earlier, it ran a global challenge which invites social entrepreneurs to submit proposals for Blockchain startups that aim to introduce new financial services in Africa. Its social awareness campaigns have included a widely-viewed documentary highlighting the plight of Africa’s unbanked. Humaniq also directly engages local entrepreneurs through its extensive network of African ambassadors.

“Humaniq is an international project and the expansion from 22 to 46 new countries is ample evidence of that. This is precisely the route that Humaniq needs to follow in order  to reach its goal of making the world a better place through full  financial inclusion and financial literacy for all.”- said Alex Fork, Founder of Humaniq.

The Remitano ecosystem is a community built on trust, this is why every Remitano user must complete their KYC to gain full access to the entire features of Remitano.

Remitano LogoOver time, we realized that a lot of our Nigerian users who have migrated and now live in South Africa are finding it difficult to verify their accounts due to the lack of proper South African documents. As a result of our pledge on continuous improvement, we are now allowing Nigerian traders in South Africa to verify their Remitano accounts using their Nigerian identification documents.

South Africa based Nigerians can now use their Nigerian government-issued National Identity card, Driver’s license, international passport, or Voters card to verify their Remitano account despite they no longer live in Nigeria.

This is part of Remitano’s effort in a bid to enhance borderless access to financial and cryptocurrency services. Remitano strives on making cryptocurrency trading easy for its users regardless of nationality and location.

What Exactly is KYC and Why Do You Need to Complete It?

KYC is an acronym for “Know Your Customer.” It is a means for Remitano to verify its users by requesting and verifying their personal details.

There are five levels of KYC in order to enjoy the highest trading experience on Remitano. The level of KYC you complete will determine your daily deposit and withdrawal limits.

Level one verification requires phone number verification only. This allows users to buy up to $1000 worth of cryptocurrency. However, you would not have access to your Remitano fiat wallet.

Level two verification involves document verification. It involves the confirmation of your identity by providing your government-issued ID card. This will help remitano verify the personal details and address you provided during registration. Level two users can buy cryptocurrencies worth $100,000 per day with a daily withdrawal limit of $1000.

Level three verification requires your bank verification. You need to verify your bank detail to make fiat deposits and withdrawals. Level three increases your buying limit to $200,000 per day and withdrawal limit to $2,500 per day.

Level four and five KYC are for long term traders, and you will need to complete the first three levels. Learn how to complete level 4 and 5 KYC.
