Eliminating Corruption in Emerging Markets through the Issuance of a Regional Development Crypto-Reserve Microasset and a ‘Social Proof of Work’ Network Adoption Model.
International Blockchain Monetary Reserve
“Welcome to the International Blockchain Monetary Reserve”
The International Blockchain Monetary Reserve, IBMR.io, is an economic development reserve established to promote inclusive financial development for the urban working poor in emerging markets. We focus on empowering individuals directly and allowing them to coordinate themselves through decentralized socio-economic networks.
We are solving the hardest problems that haven’t been solved with the current economic development solutions, namely, corruption in emerging markets and true financial inclusion. So, if you’re taking time to understand how this all works and how it comes together, that’s to be expected.
Our objective is not to work through existing centralized aid organizations or agencies, but to directly interact with the urban working poor in Southeast Asia by providing them with a fintech platform that empowers through financial inclusion. When the problems haven’t been solved for nearly 70 years and they are getting worse, i.e. markets that have been ‘emerging’ forever, nothing short of a structural level solution will do.
IBMR proposes a robust framework to issue a reserve currency, back its immediate market value, and grow that value over time. This allows ARCC to be an incentive for growing a socio-economic information network, empowering users with both a microasset and rights as a new consumer class, while gathering hard verified data to be used as a public mandate for change.
For IBMR.io, this is not a disruptive movement, rather this is a movement that reconciles the competitive and zero sum game of incentives and gains with the needs of humanity as individuals and as a global community. There needs to be a system that can reconcile the cost of material and technological progress in a world of accessible financial inclusion where we all have a right to participate.
As you jump down the rabbit hole of our project, I’d like to leave you with two thoughts: we all now understand that a solution from a centralized structure cannot solve the wealth disparity issue and, if Singularity is approaching, we get there together or not at all. Do people really think that 99% of the world is going to just sit back and let the 1% blast off to the stars? Even beyond wealth inequality, there is a massive misalignment of coordination and incentives for even the most obvious humanitarian issues, let alone the joint global need to address climate change. But the bottom line is, Singularity only comes when we solve these issues first and the first step is providing financial inclusion that actually empowers those who are currently excluded and exploited.
We invite you to join us in making this happen.

Fintech Financial INCLUSION
Model Is Broken
Entry into financial market by artificially lowering transaction fees for those forced to work abroad to get into an acceptable form of economic slavery.
Charging +30% annual interest to those receiving the loans means they can never graduate from them to scale business and hire staff.
Banking the Unbanked
MicroFinancial transactions are used as a volume play for the established financial institutions.
Fintech Platforms in Emerging Markets
MicroConsumer Data for promoting consumerism over savings and asset accumulation under the guise of convenience.
Microasset Reserve Economic Model
It’s time to do more than just try to ‘bank the unbanked.’
