Why we invested

Why we invested - Rayn

I want a place to store my money that’s safe and free. I want to be able to access it whenever and wherever I want. I want to be able to borrow extra money when the need arises and then be able to pay it back easily. I don’t want to deal with interest because it is against my belief system, I don’t need further complexity in my life and I don’t want to feel exploited – ever!

And why has no one been able to disrupt this vicious cycle that serves only 21% of my 220M large country? Because it is hard and expensive. It requires a mix of tech and innovation in financial products, building a brand that the common man can trust and deep understanding of (combined with some ability to influence) the regulatory regime. All of this in societies that have a huge trust deficit with large institutions.

That’s where dbank comes in.
