Our Request

This budget will specifically support the marketing and logistics for the three Hackathons and related prizes . In addition to the budget outlined here we will seek out additional in-kind sponsorships for space, transportation, food and any additional resources.

Progress so far

The WealthBuild platform is a pre-launched platform (will launch in January of 2022) wholly owned by My Money My Future, an early stage financial services company that has been in operation since 2018. 

We are building out the prototype of our AI driven advice engine and platform that will be launched in private-beta in January of 2022.

We have a testing use base of 1500 people who will be invited to use our private beta and we will be initially launching in the United States.

We are currently raising a pre-seed round of $250K and will raise a seed round of $5Million in Q1 2022.

Phase I: A user driven community of builders and stakeholders.

The WealthBuild platform aims to be a web3 financial ecosystem that will deliver an inclusive community centered experience and valuable tools to help underserved and overlooked communities build intergenerational wealth.

To that end, WealthBuild will unifying the community through a wealth build token built on top of the Stellar Blockchain. The WealthBuild token will serve as a rewards system for taking action on the platform (i.e. users will receive the WB token for signing up, for taking action on the platform, for creating and hitting savings and investing goals). The token will also operate to create exchange value inside the platform, where users will be able to pay for and received coaching and advice from“financial influencers” on the platform.

WealthBuild will be a subscription service where WealthBuild tokens will be used to pay for the subscription and also be used to to pay for financial products through a crypto wallet.

In oder to achieve our goal of being a user driven community of builders and stakeholders and to ensure that communities of color don’t get left behind in web3 and blockchain, the WealthBuild token and application of the token inside the platform will be driven by a core group of community hackers that will cultivated through a series of WealthBuild sponsored Stellar Hackathons.

The aim of phase I of this project is to develop a community of diverse developers interested in helping us build the WealthBuild token and rewards system. We will sponsor and host a series of 3 Hackathons in quarter 1 of 202s to facilitate and train 150 developers using Stellar with the core focus of building tokenized features specifically for the WealthBuild platform.  

Top winners will receive an invite to join an exclusive group of WealthBuild token developers, award up to $1500 in XLM which will be converted to WealthBuild Tokens (1st -$1500 in XLM, 2nd $1000, 3rd $500)

We will partner with several prominent tech organizations with strong ties to diverse communities including Sabio.LA (Los Angeles’ premier Software Developer Bootcamp), Black & Brown Founders, Backstage Capital, Latinos in Tech, Startup Grind, National Association of Hispanic Engineers and other national organizations.

We believe that the WealthBuild token will serve to create incentives and engagement on the platform as well as creating real world value (as a cross-border money transfer system, value transfer for financial services and products, exchange value with key brand partners and exclusive offers with brand ambassadors (cultural influencers).
