For the past few years, technologists have enthusiastically discussed the potential of blockchain technology to create a fairer financial system. However, the blockchain is still being used only by “early adopters” who are comfortable with new technologies. Most people are still put off by barriers to blockchain adoption. At the same time, 2 billion people in the world remain unbanked, without access to the savings and loans that power a modern economy. At WeTrust, we are striving to create products that bridge this gap, so that all people, and particularly those without access to banking, can enjoy the benefits of access to financial products.
Working at WeTrust means working alongside innovators and risk takers who are committed to making the world more financially inclusive world.

2 Billion Adults globally do not have access to a bank account. In addition, a growing number who have access to formal banking in US and EU are looking for alternatives, due to populist movements, distaste from the 2008 bailouts, and preference to support local businesses. Our mission is to enable financial inclusion, improve access to market priced capital, and serve as an alternative to traditional finance.
The first product being built at WeTrust is a decentralized Rotating Savings and Credit Association (ROSCA) platform. A ROSCA is a group of individuals who agree to meet for a defined period in order to save and borrow together, a form of combined peer-to-peer banking, lending, and mutual insurance. Next, by moving traditional ROSCAs to the blockchain, one can build a blockchain based credit identity. Finally, p2p services such as lending will be enabled, with their risk profile derived from their past transactions on the blockchain.
