NASCAR’s Sam Taheri Joins Board For MicroMoneybr>
NASCAR driver Sam Taheri is joining the advisory board for MicroMoney, a blockchain social-lending service that targets the unbanked.
The company is in the midst of an initial coin offering (ICO) that claims to have raised $6 million so far toward a $30 million goal. The company is selling its proprietary AMM token.
MicroMoney already does business in Myanmar, Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka. It claims 100,000 registered users and 40,000 loans issued this year, helping people build credit profiles that they can use in more traditional lending systems.
“MicroMoney is on a mission, and it’s no wonder that we have gathered one of the largest, diverse, global, and representative group of advisors out of the latest ICOs,” said Anton Dzyatkovsky, MicroMoney’s co-founder. “The primary objective of our company is to help people, and this socially conscious way of doing business is resonating with more and more power brokers around the world.”
“It would make me proud and honored to be a part of such noble cause and I really appreciate MicroMoney for letting me be a part of its team and accept me as its ambassador, said Taheri. “I think this is an amazing concept and helps people in need and makes their life a lot easier. Mankind is obliged to help one another and share their resources with each other.»
Headquartered in Singapore, MicroMoney plans to use attracted funds to expand to Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, and Nigeria, launch its blockchain credit bureau; and add over 100,000 previously unbanked customers, thus including them into the global financial system.
