USDC-based neobank for Latam SMBs

We are bringing over 1.5 billion people to the financial system through a USDC-based non-custodial & fully decentralized bank. Starting with LatAm SMBs. - Each user receives a USDC wallet, which protects against local inflation and generates yield from their saving circles. (ROSCAs). - Users spend or invest their saving circle dollars within our "Save now, buy later" marketplace. - We've created an AI credit-builder feature in WhatsApp that reports Roscas's activity to local credit bureaus.
