Blockchain for Change is a technology company at the nexus of identity, community and financial services. Our application Fummi, is a one-stop cooperative ecosystem for users to interact with functional and affordable services. At the core of those services is a new system that powers a digital identity used to reduce fraud in benefit distribution and streamline access to and management of critical resources for low-income and underserved people. Users can use the Fummi platform to manage and build up their digital identity, using a history of financial and non-financial transactions. The digital identity can in turn be used to provide a history of positive transactions to be leveraged for access to alternative financial services."

- Matthew Carey, Co-Founder and CEO of BluePrint Income
Blueprint Income, formerly Abaris Financial, is building a better way to save and plan for retirement with the first of its kind Personal Pension. A Personal Pension is similar to a traditional pension in that it provides guaranteed income during retirement; however, unlike a traditional pension, it’s totally customizable and available to anyone regardless of age, employer or employment status. You can choose when and how much you’d like to contribute, which insurers you’d like to back your pension, and when you want your guaranteed income to start. Our vision is big - our mission is to make guaranteed income as accessible as any other asset class by integrating with 401(k) providers, advisory platforms and anywhere else people manage their money. The company was started in 2014. We’re backed by an awesome group of venture capital firms and have advisors from Google, Amazon, along with senior industry executives, and we have the momentum to turn our vision into a reality.
