What is our Mission?
1 Million Wallets is a crypto educational initiative designed to bring knowledge and awareness to communities of color - about the most impactful function of Cryptocurrency as MONEY. Our virtual and in-person popups are led by the Founder of Guapcoin - Crypto and Blockchain industry expert Tavonia Evans. Our educational sessions are of no cost to participants and anyone can host a popup for free as long as there are 50 or more participants in person or virtual.
There is a lack of cryptocurrency education in communities of color, thus leading to a huge misunderstanding about what cryptocurrency was initially created to do - provide a financial alternative to our current money. An alternative that is most transparent, trust-less, and borderless more than the money we use now.
What are we solving?
Why are we seeking funding?
We are seeking funding to cover the expense of the first 3 months of our campaign. We do not charge for this education nor do we charge our hosts. Our expenses include:
- The launch and ongoing maintenance of our new mobile wallets
- Travel & Expenses for our team
- Venues & Locations
