Bolt was founded in 2017 to give underbanked/unbanked users in emerging markets (the next 6 billion) access to truthful, curated and aggregated digital information and entertainment – mobile only, data bandwidth friendly.
Existing payment gateways for the underbanked/unbanked in emerging markets are not deployed for global scalability, or business-friendly for digital services which try to bill through them.
BOLT is an existing, mobile focused video content platform centred on delivering live (e.g. Live TV, Live Sports) and Trendy video highlights (5min in duration per clip) to emerging markets that are constrained by bandwidth. Today, we have users streaming our service on web and Android (iOS releasing soon). We are currently live in Malaysia, Indonesia, Bangladesh and Kenya via telcos and globally via Google Play and Fortumo.
The BOLT Team is motivated by a single mission – to move communities and build economies, aided by the power of an immutable, decentralised network for the emerging markets.
