GOALS

180+ First Nations Partners.

Potential 2M+ users in Canada and expansion opportunity in USA.

“OneFeather is very excited to be working with BlocPal. There are over 2.2 million Indigenous people in Canada alone – First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples – and we are excited to impact the lives of indigenous peoples through their smartphone with easy access to these essential financial services. We believe today’s technology can empower and prosper our people, and this partnership with BlocPal is an excellent example of how we can accomplish this. OneFeather is leading disruption of “Indian Act” governance, reporting and administration through a First Nation vision of modern digital systems and solutions that better represent and respect Aboriginal sovereignty, values and principles. OneFeather’s purpose is ultimately to return resources and wealth presently being drained by antiquated systems and regimes directly back to First Nations and their members. OneFeather is a First Nation technology company, and the only company building these new modern solutions for First Nation in Canada.”

OneFeather and BlocPal to Provide First Nations with never before available digital Financial Services.

A NEW WAY

Since 2015 OneFeather's core purpose was to redefine the Indigenous experience through innovation and technology. With a highly underserved/underbanked population amongst First Nations, out-dated Federal government administration systems, settlement of funds, treaty payments, grants and tax refunds there was a lot to consider. The solution was a custom digital wallet enabling financial/money management services including credit/debit cards, First Nations Status Card renewal, GST refunds, and other gov’t distributions to simplify and empower all First Nations people. Backed by the BlocPal platform, OneFeather will launch a digital wallet serving BANDS ACROSS North America to a potential 2 million users. The OneFeather wallet will make essential financial services readily available to Indigenous people.

HOW IT WORKS

The BlocPal powered OneFeather wallet will make essential financial services readily available to Indigenous people. Services will include deposits/withdrawals of Canadian and US dollars, sending/receiving money, credit card access, and direct utilities payment and never before realized access to financial resources, capital, wealth and security. In addition, the wallet will integrate OneFeather’s existing digital services for Status Card renewal, soon to be released GST rebates solution and its flagship suite of digital governance solutions like electronic voting and community engagement.

THE BOTTOM LINE

A solution well timed. Thanks to the BlocPal technology, the OneFeather wallet will include a digital rewards currency called the OneFeather token. The OneFeather token will be used to provide incentives based on wallet usage and create a generous program to give back directly to Indigenous people and their families. The OneFeather token will be the genesis of a truly Indigenous endowment – designed specifically for the benefit and wealth of individual Indigenous people that can be used, shared and managed directly from their OneFeather wallet. The new app will deliver solutions specific to Indigenous needs, reconcile economic and social injustice, and lift people up.

“Our partnership with OneFeather is focused on delivering very relevant digital services for First Nations across Canada, meeting the specific needs of community members in a practical way. Our technology securely integrates multiple best in class services, like Berkeley Payments’ prepaid Visa and OneFeather’s voting and status card renewal, to make it easy for members to receive the solutions they need from one place, their OneFeather Wallet mobile app.”
