On Friday, London-based FinTech firm Humaniq revealed it is marking the milestone of its mobile app reaching its first 50,000 downloads by unveiling a new, improved version. The company reported:
“Humaniq announced a Free Secure Chat & Crypto-Wallet App and a new referral program for its community of users. The Humaniq app includes a wallet, bioID, secure messenger and the unbanked can use it for making digital ID and peer-to-peer transactions in African countries (including Uganda, Senegal, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, and Rwanda).”
Some of the new features include:
- New referral program: The new 2.0 referral program will build on this by displaying community progress with referrals and thereby make the referral process more transparent and intuitive for all users.
- Transaction options extension: Transactions can now be made through the messaging chat system. Whether it is a text, or an image or a gift in HMQ – it is now all in one place. Users are also now allowed not only to send HMQ but also to request directly from their friends or family.
- New registration process: Allows users to start interacting with a Humaniq assistant bot, which becomes smarter and is learning to execute more useful commands, even without the registration.
Anton Mozgovoy, CTO Humaniq, then noted:
“The Humaniq’s team of ambassadors in Africa received and analyzed feedback from users, and with this data, it was possible to create such significant updates. We hope our users will appreciate all the innovations and we will move even further towards our goal to empower the unbanked.”
The Humaniq team added they have also made additional upgrades to remote infrastructure and with new CDN points, users in Africa will experience a faster by 16% response rate from mobile application which is already available in Google Play and can be used even on low-end mobile devices with Android 4.0.3.
