The Reserve team believes that access to a stable currency and equal access to financial services are basic human rights. Reserve is currently focused on building out the ecosystem and platform to provide stable currency to the populations who need it the most – those that experience high inflation and lack of access to banking services in LatAm. Using the Reserve app and platform, more than 600,000 humans have been able to earn, save, spend, and transfer stable money across borders to their families and run their businesses. Our vision is for anyone in the world to have those basic capabilities at their fingertips.
