Campaign Brief

Out of the world’s approximately 7.8 billion inhabitants, 6.45 billion do not speak English.

Living in the Western world, we forget this fact regularly, and many of us have never even considered it.

Let’s consider it now and start to build an ecosystem that is truly global, allowing everyone to participate to the best of their ability.

When you drive adoption at the ground level, you are doing more than just ‘building cool products’, you are empowering people to change their lives in ways they could have never imagined by themselves.

Why is it important?

Without users on the ground level, we are building niche products serving mostly technical people with blockchain expertise.

How does success look like?

Local Community Hubs across the world where the average person can take part in their own language and with their own cultural understanding
