Blockchain Powered Solutions and Services. Leveraging blockchain-based infrastructure to create and streamline existing processes.
Bankymoon was founded in January 2015 in response to the increase in mainstream awareness around the potential for blockchains. Lorien Gamaroff, the founder, identified a growing gap in the market for blockchain expertise and, having had a personal interest in it for several years, decided to create a company to fill that gap.
Bankymoon is the only company in Southern Africa, focused on providing insight and technical expertise around blockchain technologies to public and private organisations. With a strong background in software development and a long history researching and developing blockchain solutions, Bankymoon is positioned as the perfect partner to help take advantage of the opportunities in this exciting new space.
The company is based in Johannesburg, South Africa and offers its services throughout Africa.
USIZO - CROWD FUNDING UTILITIES FOR NEEDY SCHOOLS
Many African schools are straining under the burden of managing their utility costs. The standard of education is severely degraded because they are required to divert spending away from equipment, amenities and teachers.
The Usizo project aims to open poor African schools to an international donor market.
Needy schools have Bankymoon meters installed which are Blockchain-Aware. This means that anybody from around the world can make payments directly to the meter in the crypto-currency of their choice and fund the energy or water needs of the school.
This revolutionary approach to foreign aid removes the need for donors to make contributions to an organisation which adds costs and distributes the funds opaquely. Donors can now directly fund the causes they believe in.
Lorien has been developing enterprise software solutions for the financial services and other industries for two decades. Lorien is recognised as a blockchain thought leader in South Africa and around the world and has been invited to speak on blockchain and its impact on emerging economies. He has addressed the IMF, World Bank, FBI, Commonwealth Secretariat, banking executives and attorney generals from many countries on this subject.
Bankymoon partners with public and private organisations and offers technical expertise and software development, consulting and integration services around blockchain technologies. The company is primary focused on developing enterprise integrations and new products for its customers and exploring potential opportunities in this space.
