Humaniq Stories targets Blockchain and cryptocurrency knowledge of unbanked as they start to take control of their destinies with Humaniq App

Humaniq is introducing a new app feature for our nearly-400,000-strong community: Humaniq Stories, an extra designed to increase our users’ Blockchain and crypto knowledge.

We are introducing the special new function within the App’s ‘Humaniq Info,’ a vital in-App support bot, as part of our mission to support the global unbanked to learn, earn and progress. The feature represents an essential in-messenger content channel, where all Humaniq’s users can easily interact and engage with content, including adding likes and dislikes, selecting articles and reading the full text, and sharing useful content with friends and other users. The content on Humaniq Stories is devoted to educational and entertaining articles informing users about Blockchain technology, how to use HMQ tokens to help local communities, how to prosper without banks, how to manage finances and taxes, practical advice on job-hunting and other useful recommendations. Stories are featured in the three most popular languages in the region: English, French, Swahili. We plan to add further languages as part of the ongoing development of the feature.

Humaniq Stories is different to other sharing channels, because ‘Humaniq Info’ provides unique, educational content written in plain language to target the mass, unbanked population — some 3.5bn of the world’s population — including regions with very low internet speeds.

The Humaniq team is also pleased to reveal today that the Humaniq Mobile app community has now grown to approaching 400,000 downloads and now in 16 African countries. The App is now available in Burkino Faso, Cameroon, DRC, Guinea and Sierra Leone and Zambia as well as Botswana, Republic of Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe). In addition to ‘Humaniq Info,’ these users across the continent already enjoy a range of features, including bio-id access, a secure messenger with end-to-end encryption, live support chat, wallet and transaction fees close to zero — due to the Hybrid Blockchain platform Humaniq App is build on.

While the world is moving towards sophisticated tech solutions, most of our users need to know how the new economy works and how they can seize opportunities, so that’s why we think that ‘Humaniq Stories’ in Humaniq’s native app and on social media can help facilitate the global shift to decentralised human banking for the unbanked. In the future, we are planning to add real stories from our users on the uses for the App and how their lives were changed by Humaniq, and in the not-too-distant future with more and more users with better internet speeds, we’ll add videos, some entertaining stuff and options for feedback so we are in even on touch with our community.

So watch this space as Humaniq App continues to develop and support our community to grow.
