  1. Powering Maps.me 2.0 is the MAPS token that may provide token holders with 100% of the platform’s net revenues. Token-holders using the app will also benefit from personalized promotions and rewards, likely driving adoption, retention, and virality of MAPS within the community.
  2. There are very few apps with a user base as large as ours, so Maps.me is positioned to quickly put DeFi financial services in the hands of many.
  3. Furthermore, users utilize our app throughout their entire journey/travel process: we can therefore develop a travel- and wallet-oriented ecosystem to instill new user habits with regards to payments, accommodation booking, fund transfers, and asset management.
  4. Our offered financial services are decentralized, which contrasts with the centralized nature of Robinhood (brokerage), Paypal (payments), and Revolut (fintech banking). Current DeFi projects are also hindered by blockchains that cannot provide the necessary throughput, speed, and low gas fees for widespread adoption. In contrast, Maps.me will build its DeFi functions on the fast and scalable Solana blockchain and liquid Serum DEX.
