3. KAYA Chain
The KAYA Chain is LATTICE80’s own blockchain-based platform that delivers banking and financial services catered mainly to the unbanked and the underserved.
LATTICE80 firmly believes that financial inclusion is key to improving the quality of life for everyone and to achieving the UN SDG #1 to end poverty by 2030. Focused on the portion of the population living below the poverty line* and low income groups, the KAYA Chain provides inclusive and innovative solutions to improve banking services, especially in places where existing banks are not able to provide support for low income groups in ways that blockchain is able to.
*Poverty line is set to low income groups earning $1.9 a day (2015). Seventy-one percent (71%) of the world’s population still lives on less than $10 a day (2015).
4. Impact Blockchain (Technology with Purpose)
Impact Blockchain is LATTICE80’s initiative to utilize blockchain technology in developing solutions with social impact in line with the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Blockchain’s secure, decentralized and distributed way of recording and sharing data can transform how transactions are created and processed across industries and between businesses and individuals.
Under this initiative, LATTICE80 engages the community in various communication channels to evangelize ideas on how blockchain could be applied on sustainable solutions for social problems. LATTICE80 actively seeks out opportunities to create and participate in such blockchain-based projects.
