What is BitMinutes

BitMinutes Solution: “Better than Bitcoin for Billions

  • BitMinutes’ vision is to make mobile financial services affordable and ubiquitously available to consumers across the globe. BitMinutes are a mobile digital currency, backed by a commonly used asset (prepaid minutes) enabling consumers, carriers and financial services institutions to increase their access to capital.
  • BitMinutes combine prepaid airtime with blockchain technology unleashing a new, innovative crypto-currency for mobile financial services: BitMinutes (“BTM” or “BTMs”). BitMinutes are encrypted tokens powered by P2P Cash’s proprietary Smart Token technology. BTMs create secure interoperability between disparate global financial networks, mobile network carriers and emerging blockchains, enabling frictionless exchange of value between those networks.
  • As an Ethereum ERC20-compliant token, BTMs allow for a more efficient and decentralized mobile ecosystem across carriers, financial institutions, merchants and end users, both businesses and individuals. The underlying protocol provides capabilities for the holder of a BTM token to create outbound remittances to any compatible mobile wallet for delivery of monetary value. That BTM token can instantly be converted to prepaid airtime issued globally by telecommunications carriers and utilized by 4 billion mobile phones or convertible to cash in over 70 countries.
  • BitMinutes technology harnesses the decentralized power of the Ethereum blockchain by leveraging the digital ledger behind user data for making purchases, transferring money, generating loans and using airtime. By leveraging artificial intelligence, this “Big Data” payments and usage history can be utilized to calculate a proprietary “TAN Credit-Score” algorithm for use in micro-lending.
  • BTMs are redeemable for mobile data, money transfer and eventually retail purchases through the Trusted Agent Network (TAN). BTMs enable the provision of financial services by an ecosystem of carriers, financial services institutions and merchant retailers.
  • Selling and lending BitMinutes based micro-loans creates a business opportunity for entrepreneurs globally. BitMinutes turn the corner retailer into the corner banker, delivering banking services to the smallest of villages and towns worldwide.
  • Unlike most new technologies in the ICO space, BitMinutes currently operates a live technology platform generating revenue as the underlying currency to the P2P Cash money transfer platform.

    Led by Harvard Business School and Stanford graduates with decades of financial services and technology experience, BitMinutes is quickly establishing itself as the leader in affordable consumer financial services and strategic partner to prepaid wireless carriers and financial institutions globally.

    BitMinutes solve the global banking problem of providing financial services to the 2 Billion un-banked and therefore are “Better than Bitcoin for Billions”.

    Every day, billions of consumers use a virtual currency they most likely do not realize is a virtual currency: Prepaid Minutes, issued as a special purpose currency by over 300 carriers globally. The issue is that these prepaid minutes can only be used on their respective proprietary networks for either voice and/or data services (a “walled garden”).

    Consequently, the underbanked are limited in their access to liquid assets. Physical cash cannot easily be transferred over long distances and prepaid minutes are illiquid, i.e. lacking convertibility back into cash. The consumers stuck in this paradigm want inexpensive financial services, but traditional banks and legacy money transfer companies lack reach and affordability.

    Based on international banking standards (ISO), BitMinutes solves these problems on a global basis. BitMinutes unify these proprietary currencies around a common global standard, enabling prepaid minutes transfer to 4 billion mobile accounts, and convertibility to cash as well as the potential for lending.

    BitMinutes’ convertibility to cash solves the major hurdles in providing financial services to the underbanked. Consumer benefits include affordable and easy retail access to money transfer, micro-credit, and virtual MasterCard products for e-commerce purchasing.

    BitMinutes also solves for structural issues in delivering these consumer services. The carriers desire to offer financial services to their customers, but lack the infrastructure and data analysis tools to make underwriting decisions. For retailers, selling the BitMinutes brand of prepaid minutes greatly simplifies their need to carry multiple prepaid carriers’ products. Plus, by offering new financial services, they now become a next-generation corner banker.

    BitMinutes represent a business opportunity to entrepreneurial individuals, retail merchants and telecommunications carriers to offer financial services cost effectively. By reducing money transfer costs, adding liquidity to a major global asset class of prepaid minutes and establishing credit history for the global underbanked, BitMinutes will raise the standard of living in many countries, greatly expanding the middle class to the benefit of all.
