区块链创企Bancor:打造商用型代币网络

数字货币平台Bancor今日宣布,其将在肯尼亚推出一项新的区块链金融服务,帮助减轻当地的贫困问题。

这一服务主要是加快“货币社区”的创建,促进当地的商业及P2P合作。所谓的货币社区,是一种可供群体使用的金融系统,用于鼓励某个区域内的商品制造和交易服务。

虽然有些社区使用的是实物货币,但Bancor的系统主要是让肯尼亚社区的人们使用区块链上的通证。

Bancor联合创始人Galia Benartzi在声明中表示:“数字货币世界已经创造了4000亿美元的新货币价值。我们相信,通过使用基于区块链的货币社区,我们可以填补贸易缺口、保证基本收入,以及实现粮食安全;同样的机制,能够帮助我们促进当地繁荣,并连接全球市场。”

该公司表示,系统能够帮助追踪当地货币的汇率价值,允许外界购买通证来支持社区发展,并且提高这些通证的整体价值。

公司还与当地的非盈利经济组织Grassroots Economics进行了合作,后者一直在帮助社区开发此类货币。此外,公司还聘请了Grassroots的创始人Will Ruddick来监督这一项目。

Bancor总部位于瑞士的楚格,曾在去年通过出售通证融资1.53亿美元。公司表示,融资的部分资金将会用于这一项目的前期投入。

Cryptocurrency platform Bancor announced today that it will launch a new blockchain service in Kenya as part of a financial system designed to help alleviate poverty.

The service will facilitate the creation of “community currencies” to boost local commerce and peer-to-peer collaboration. A community currency is a kind of alternative financial system that a group can use to encourage the creation and purchase of goods and services within a certain geographic region.

While some communities actually create physical money for such systems, the Bancor system will let Kenyan communities use tokens on a blockchain.

“We have seen the crypto world generate roughly $400 billion for new currencies, and we believe the same mechanics can be applied to help communities create wealth on a local level through the use of blockchain-based community currencies that fill regional trade gaps, enable basic income and food security, and promote thriving local and interconnected global markets,” Bancor cofounder Galia Benartzi said in a statement.

The company says the system will help track the exchange rate value for such local currencies and will allow outsiders to purchase tokens to support community development and increase the overall value of the tokens.

The company is also working with local nonprofit Grassroots Economics, which has been helping communities develop such currencies. Bancor has hired the nonprofit’s founder, Will Ruddick, to oversee the project. Ruddick was once arrested by the Kenyan government for his efforts, but he now works with the government to develop community currencies.

Bancor, based in Switzerland’s ‘Crypto Valley’ of Zug, said it will seed creation of the currencies using some of the $153 million it raised last year in its own token sale.
