Long Description

Simplifying global transactions within and beyond Africa is imperative for individuals and businesses.
Remote workers, Freelances, African diasporas, International contractors, Importers, Web3 teams and Businesses lack an easy and flexible way to make international payments. Currently, an astonishing 85% of businesses struggle with paying for supplies with payment systems like Western union or local FX brokers, costing them billions of dollars annually because of system inefficiency, cost and delays.

This is a problem we are obsessed with and the future for Bingtellar holds a commitment to continuous innovation, expanded financial accessibility, and seamless cross-border transactions.

What we built during Celo Camp

During camp, we developed: A Minipay remittance dApp, enabling customers to use cUSD from Minipay to send money across Africa. Additionally, we designed a Minipay payment checkout widget for millions of users to make online e-commerce and everyday payments.
