In the ever-evolving world of finance, cryptocurrency emerges as a transformative force with the potential to revolutionize two vital domains: financial inclusion and education. At its core, cryptocurrency represents a digital frontier where financial literacy is not just encouraged but cultivated, and where access to financial services becomes a universal right.

Consider this: As of 2021, approximately 1.7 billion adults around the globe remain unbanked, lacking access to basic financial services. In parallel, research from the Global Findex Database indicates that around two-thirds of adults struggle with understanding fundamental financial concepts. These statistics underscore the urgency of addressing financial inclusion and education gaps.

Cryptocurrency isn't just a form of digital money; it's a catalyst for change. 

It offers the means to promote financial literacy on a global scale. By simplifying complex financial concepts and providing accessible tools for wealth management, it empowers individuals to make informed decisions about their finances. Moreover, the implementation of interchangeable stable coins and coin-swapping mechanisms opens doors to a world where transaction costs are minimized and financial intermediaries become a thing of the past. A study conducted by the World Bank found that the average cost of sending remittances globally was still over 6% in 2021, demonstrating the potential impact of cryptocurrency in reducing these costs.

Through these applications, crypto adoption isn't merely an abstract idea; it's a tangible opportunity. It's about ensuring that everyone, regardless of their background, can access the benefits of a global digital economy. It's about promoting financial inclusion and education in a way that's never been done before.

The Problem

The Problems We're Solving: Untapped Crypto Savings Opportunities

Imagine a world where your crypto not only stays safe but also helps you save for a better financial life. That's what we're here to talk about – a challenge that needs fixing.

Check this out:

Growing Your Dreams: You want to build a brighter financial future, right? But here's the catch: regular savings don't cut it anymore. In 2021, putting money in a typical savings account gives you only about 0.5% interest. It's like saving for a vacation and only getting enough for a snack. This is happening everywhere, not just in one place. Crypto enthusiasts are searching for ways to make their money grow faster.

Dormant Digital Wealth: Now, think about this – many people have crypto just sitting around doing nothing. In 2021, almost 60% of all Bitcoins didn't move for a year. It's like having a car that never leaves the garage. These untouched assets are like sleeping giants, missing the chance to help you achieve your dreams.

The Confusing Part: You've heard about earning more with DeFi, right? But it's like a puzzle that's missing pieces. Figuring out how to use DeFi platforms and strategies can be as tricky as solving a riddle. This makes it tough for regular folks to jump in and make their crypto work harder.

Ensuring Asset Security: Now, here's the scary part – hackers. In 2020, they took off with more than $3 billion worth of crypto. It's like a digital robbery! This fear of losing your assets makes it hard to trust new platforms to keep your crypto safe while making it work for you.

So the problem isn't just saving and earning. It's about turning your crypto into a tool for your financial dreams. Crypto enthusiasts like you want a way to make their digital assets hustle for their goals.

How did we go about it?

Step1: We created our user flow to guide our design process (Link to the user flow selection)

Step 2: Next, we created the user interface using Figma (Link to the Design File)

Step 3: We created the smart contract using solidity and hardhat and the frontend application using typescript and React, after which we made use of web3uikit and moralis to integrate the smart contract with React (Link to Github)

  • The technology used: Typescript, ReactJS, and Solidity.

Major Challenges Faced During the Hackathon

  • For our initial concept, FinXart, a platform designed to enable transparent and easy management of artists' profits and plays across various streaming platforms using Smart Contracts, one big difficulty we discovered was the lack of access to essential APIs. Despite our early enthusiasm and plans, there was a problem because the required APIs weren't available. As a result, we swiftly changed our strategy and worked under pressure to come up with a new product proposal.
  •  This difficulty forced us to be quick to adapt and think imaginatively, which finally helped us create our ground-breaking BlockXave product, which addresses the critical need for easily accessible and secure crypto savings in Africa. Our team's flexibility and drive to overcome challenges and provide meaningful answers are demonstrated by our ability to change course and develop a fresh idea.
