We’re on the move again after a busy but energising week in South Korea.

The round-up:

Rushd had a ball on the main stage, telling the world about our vision for the future of banking.

We met loads of interesting people — thank you to everyone who came to our stand to meet us and chat all things crypto, blockchain and financial inclusion.

Blockchain Technical Review, Seoul

We had several private meetings with token buyers and enjoyed plenty of stimulating conversations about the utility and potential of BAX.

Three of the best questions we were asked

Some of the most valuable insights we’re taking away from South Korea stem from the many thoughtful questions we were asked. The best thing about the crypto space is the people, and it’s awesome to meet so many new people with diverse opinions and perspectives on blockchain technology.

So, here are three of the best questions we received during Bixpo and the Review. Plus our answers, of course.

Why would I want a bank account based on blockchain technology?

This question came from most people who are relatively new to blockchain and don’t know a huge amount about it. The benefits of a blockchain-based bank account depend what you want to use your bank account for, but the features are pretty universal.

A blockchain-based bank account gives you faster and cheaper transactions. We think everyone can appreciate why that would be helpful.

No-one wants to be the victim of fraud or to have their data stolen, so the data security that comes with using a blockchain is also universally useful.

A blockchain allows you to transact without an intermediary. Your account will be connected to the account of every other BABB user in the world, and any financial services you need can be crowdsourced via peer-to-peer transactions.

Why would I trust other users on the BABB platform?

This was a very common follow-up question to the one above, and we think it’s one of the most vital aspects to understand about our proposed peer-to-peer platform.

Crucially, all BABB users will have a digital identity secured by several technologies including biometrics and geolocation. That means you always know who you’re interacting with.

We will also use AI for ‘dynamic KYC’, building up a profile of each user over time to make it easier to spot fraudulent or un-creditworthy behaviour.

In addition, distributed ledger technology with smart contracts means that all transactions are tamper-resistant.

How is BABB different from other blockchain based platforms?

We’ll provide a UK bank account with global connectivity via the app. Instead of depositing your money in a bank and handing over the control, you’ll have ownership of your money and data, and decide what happens to it via peer-to-peer financial services.

We know the value of the platform is derived from the size and quality of the network. We have a plan to grow the network. Our ‘Social KYC’ mechanism utilises social validation and biometric technology to get entire families, friendship groups or workforces into the platform at the same time, rapidly creating fully banked communities.

It’s also worth noting that BABB is already authorised as a payment institution in the UK and we’re applying for a banking licence. That means users can interact in a free but regulated environment, so their money is safe.

Hello & Cheers!! I'm a content detection and information bot. You are receiving this reply because a short link or links have been detected in your post/comment. The purpose of this message is to inform your readers and yourself about the use of and dangers of short links.

To the readers of the post: Short links are provided by url shortening services. The short links they provide can be useful in some cases. Generally their use is benign. But as with all useful tools there are dangers. Short links can be used to hide all sorts of things. Quite frequently they are used to hide referral links for instance. While not dangerous this can be deceptive. They can also be used to hide dangerous links such as links to phishing sites, sites loaded with malware, scam sites, etc. You should always be extremely cautious before clicking on one. If you don't know and trust the poster don't click. Even if you do you should still be cautious and wary of any site you are sent to. It's always better to visit the site directly and not through a short link.

To the author of the post: While short links may be useful on some sites they are not needed on steemit. You can use markdown to format your links such as this link to steemit. It's as simple as [steemit](https://steemit.com) Unlike short links this allows the reader to see where they are going by simply hovering over the link before they click on it.

This message was created by a bot. It is part of the ongoing fight against spam and phishing attacks on steemit. If you did not use short links in your post and feel you have received this message in error you can contact @fubar-bdhr on discord or @fubar.bdhr on steemit chat to report the issue.
