Website Blockbonds / SPENN

Join our efforts to change the world!

There are more than 2 billion people in the world with limited or no access to financial services. Despite being among the poorest in the world, they still have to pay comparatively some of the highest fees for basic financial services, which we in developed countries and regions take for granted. Blockbonds aims to change this radically, by offering our users a platform to use and transact for free. Blockbonds mission is to provide everyone with access to banking services through innovative technology. Our product SPENN is an advanced mobile application with a simple interface that is easy to understand and use by anyone, regardless of their background, education, age or knowledge of banking applications. Our primary target markets are emerging countries where large segments of the population have little or no access to banking services.


Blockbonds is present in seven different countries. The company is expanding rapidly and we are now strengthening our team further with experienced professionals who wish to join our vision of achieving global financial inclusion for the poorest segments of our society.
