1 min pitch for what you are doing now?
Currently I’m the Lead Practice in Continuous Process Improvement, Business Analysis and Organizational Management Change for large Oil & Gas Company in Calgary, AB, Canada.
Why did you get involved with this ICO?
Actually, I’ve infinity passion for technology and helping ordinary folks been closest to my heart. I have been a crypto, stock and commodity trader and early adopter ever since my teenage years and love every bit of it; the experience and excitement it brings is unbelievable. Last few years I was involved in other ICO blockchain startups; things did not work out. There was a huge disappointment however; couldn’t wait for success to come knocking at my door so we started ZIPCOIN REMIT to mainly focus on solving real people issues around remittance cost, technology and delivery in the emerging markets. The exorbitant price we pay to send money to Africa is extremely high and our solution is set to change that. We have very experienced, talented, passionate and diverse professionals from all ethnic backgrounds; some who have been both on the sender and the receiver sides of the remittance space.
The irony behind our company name is powerful, enriching and inspiring. Why ZIPCOIN? Well, proof is in the pudding- we plan to go after each community, each village, each town, and each city in Africa and beyond; work with the locals, governments, regulators and business partners to close and zip gaps in remittance and blockchain technology; implementing measures around accessibility, cost, interoperability issues. Using our platform and utility token to send money will be 8 times cheaper than the current remittance companies. Through our town halls we are learning that people are dying for an option as the current remit systems are too big to listen to the mass and too expensive to lower their prices.
I’m very passionate about how we are engaging these migrant communities, diasporas, international students, government, and partners to learn more on the issues and how our remittance model is built to change ordinary lives both at personal, community, local and international levels; most importantly, the poor, the unbanked, and the disfranchised. ZIPCOIN REMIT believes that having financial inclusion is a necessity. Therefore, we are partnering with banks, telecom, universities, and migrant associations across the globe and providing jobs to Canadians, Africans and beyond. Please, we ask everyone who believes in our vision to join our movement; the price of remit to Africa has to go down!
Why do you think it is such a powerful idea?
ZipCoin brand is a movement and it is a “humanitarian effort” so will ask everyone to do their part. When you do well; amazing things happen to all making the world a better place to live.
The world is changing, the way we do business is changing; millennium are taking over the world by using the internet, machine learning, artificial intelligence, big data thinking, social media, grassroots & boots on the ground marketing and empowering everyone starting with the emerging African markets is the mandate for ZIPCOIN REMIT. The platform shall be easy to use, intuitive, affordable, swift and reliable. Our solution is built based on real time remittance challenges and needs that shall add business value and transform people and communities lives forever.
