Pineapple World – Freemium Banking, Gold, Mobile Minutes, Fractional Ownership, Oh My!
When: February 5, 2019
Where: Starfish Mission
What: Banking. Kind of stodgy. A bit formal. Frequently slow to evolve. This is what we all think about our banks. Frankly – we rely upon this. They are always there, they don’t change a lot and we can put our cash in an account to save it without using our mattress at home. Great.
But – what if something different happened? What if your bank would give you loans at without fees. What if your mobile minutes were involved. What if Gold was involved. What if you got to own some of the bank? Tune in to BloxNexus as we speak to Babar Yousuf and dive down the rabbit hole about this new version of a very old industry. Join us for a deep dive into Pineapple World and get to know what this visionary founder is doing to bank the unbanked. Blockchain? Check. Fractionalized Assets? Check. Disruptive Innovation? Definitely!
