Moneyscape’s concept is simple. Through our platform, we will offer an easy way to make payments, and a set of basic banking services, based on remittances.
The sender simply creates an account in the Moneyscape app – and transfers funds to the beneficiary at the other end. The funds will remain in the recipient’s Moneyscape account until they are ready to withdraw, transfer or spend them.
The Moneyscape platform has the potential to transform the lives of millions of people, facilitating access to secure banking services, and empowering them to make online purchases, opening up access to many online possibilities.
How it Works
We are planning to offer a set of services for the recipients to make a better use of the received remittances, empowering them to improve their lives using the money in the best possible way.
All the money will be kept in an european supervised bank account in the original currency, minimizing their exposure to local currency devaluations or theft.
Recipients could withdraw cash in local currency using ATMs or directly at our local agent locations.
We have the best market exchange rate and charge an small commission fee in each operation.
Pay directly from the app to selected and approved merchants and utility services.
Recipients will receive a VISA or MC debit card that could be used to pay online or withdraw money in ATMs.
Beneficiaries can transfer money to other beneficiaries who are using the Moneyscape platform. These transfers are free and virtually instantaneous.
Our serviceable obtainable market is made up of EU remittance senders, as well as their unbanked recipients with smartphones and Internet service.
- 2.5 billion people in third world countries have limited or not bank access at all.
- Remittances to low and middle income countries reached $466 billion in 2017.
- Remittances from EU countries totalled $110 billion in 2017.
- More than 90% of remittance recipients have access to a smartphones and have internet connection.
- There are many millions of unbanked money recipients to whom we could offer basic banking services.
- Even in EU, more than 35 million people do not have basic banking services.
After the last global economic crisis and for the last three years, remittances from the EU are growing more than in the rest of the World, as shown in the evolution graph of remittances below.
