About Bidali

We are reimagining digital commerce.

Bidali helps businesses increase sales and eliminate fraud with next generation payments and more flexible gift cards.

What drives us

Everyone should have easy access to global capital markets, without high fees and repression. We’ve experienced first hand that unfortunately this is not the case everywhere.

In order to pay people around the world we’ve had to stitch together various services and pay absurd fees just to pay honest people for honest work. In many parts of the world obtaining a bank account or accessing their funds in a timely manner is impossible. This is excluding people from the global economy and preventing them from improving their life.

We believe that the ability to bank and transact is a fundamental human right. Without access to capital you are entirely isolated and unable to function in today’s society.

The blockchain and other distributed ledger technologies lower the cost to transact and streamline the payment process by providing a secure, globally agreed upon settlement layer. We believe it’s this technology that is going to ensure banking and commerce becomes a human right and gives you more control over your own finances. We’re building the products that allow people to leverage this technology.
