3 min readDec 19, 2020

The general goal of technology is to make things easier, faster and more accessible. Accessibility here means more affordability and simplicity for you and I. A walk down historyville will show that this is exactly how new technologies that displace the old have evolved. For this reason, we are excited to introduce to you Bantu, the Blockchain infrastructure that empowers humanity.

What Blockchain Is

A rather simplistic definition of blockchain is a digital ledger replicated on several computers. What differentiates it from other forms of ledgers is that the decisions on data entries are reached by everyone with a ledger (nodes) maintained on their computers, through a consensus algorithm. Whereas, for centralized ledgers, only one entity is the source of truth.

What Bantu Is

The Bantu blockchain combines speed, security, reliability and includes human elements of fairness, and sharing to empower participants on the network while lowering the entry barriers for participation. Bantu is set to become a conduit for positive socio-economic impact in the emerging economies around the world.
