BanQu, Inc. Key Developments

RippleNami Enters into Strategic Partnership Agreement with BanQu to Create Disruptive Technology

RippleNami announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership agreement with BanQu. When these disruptive technologies unite, amazing innovation brings about dramatic change. The partnership will allow the two companies to develop a technology integration between RippleNami’s data visualization mapping platform and BanQu’s blockchain economic identity technology solution. BanQu and RippleNami will approach customers with this robust big data, integrated visualization platform that empowers users with access to real-time information in areas such as East Africa, Latin America and South America, as well as countries with large refugee populations. Imagine three billion people living in either extreme poverty and/or refugee camps being unable to capture their meaningful life events such as banking, healthcare records, global supply chain and more. Now, they can gain access to credit and other financial services by visualizing their world on an easy-to-use map. Women and children in Africa spend countless hours every day looking for clean water. Now, they can easily find water so children can instead spend their time in school. Organizations such as nonprofits, governments and corporations are now able to break down data silos, solve problems, make critical decisions and use RippleNami’s solution to collaborate directly and in real-time with those in need like never before. RippleNami and BanQu joined forces to combine their technologies to affect change and enable people to participate in a global economy. The companies believe that empowered with an economic identity and real-time, easily accessible information, people around the world can connect, foster positive change and thrive like never before.
