True peer-to-peer lending
Credit and repayments are exchanged directly between the lender and the consumer via smart contracts – no need for intermediaries
The different ways credit ratings affect the vulnerable
Poor credit scores obtained from traditional credit checks create a vicious circle of debt that benefits on-one. Mobile phone operators, load companies, HP providers, etc. don't want to turn potential contract customers away, but their policies prevent them from bringing on these customers when their credit scores are low.
The ethecal option is based on affordability, not credit scores allowing credit providers to serve a wider section of consumers. The proprietary payments system also ensures loans are automatically repaid out of the consumer's salary.All in all, a system that makes it fairer and easier to deliver services and receive payments.
