About Blockbonds
Blockbonds AS is a Norwegian Fintech company established in 2015. Today, with a presence in 11 markets, Blockbonds engages over 70 people across three continents. Blockbonds’ mission to bank the unbanked started with a vision to create a world where everyone can manage their savings, payments and investments in an honest, transparent and secure way.

 

With the current unbanked population at 2 billion people globally, the potential for Blockbonds is huge. Having conducted a global feasibility study in order to identify potential markets to launch its product “SPENN”, Blockbonds has chosen to focus initially on the African and Asian markets of operations – primarily in markets where the unbanked population is vastly represented, with viable technical infrastructure to support the product, and where trust for mobile payments are, to varying degrees, socially accepted and welcomed.

 

Blockbonds has created a pan-global model, where everyone in the world can access financial services equal to those in more developed markets, completely free, and utilizing the security and transparency of blockchain technology. The Company is registered in VPS, which is the only central securities depository in Norway, and provides an efficient infrastructure and services for the settlement of transactions in securities and the registration of ownership rights over securities.
