:Product design & Innovation
Problem

There are 196 countries in the world. Only 26 allow LGBTQ+ couples and provide them with legal protection.
This triggers complicated property issues when they break up, divorce or if one partner unexpectedly passes away.


Insight

Traditional currency is operated under a country’s laws. But converting finances into cryptocurrency can bypass these legal documents and processes.


Idea

Blockchain Vows protects the legal&financial rights for LGBT couples regardless of where they come from.







Steps

1. Exchange money into cryptocurrency with marital status.




2. Blockchain plays a role as a vow in unfortunate case.
