dua token is the token that will connect, reconnect and empower fragmented communities. To gain a better understanding of its utility, let’s have a look at the issues and challenges faced by these communities worldwide.
Challenges faced by fragmented communities
Fragmentation through Migration
Migration is a major component of societal change. Socio-political and economic factors have led to migration throughout centuries, resulting in fragmented communities and enlarged diasporas worldwide. This fragmentation leads to significant psychological, social, and political problems for migrants.
For host countries, migration is a great stimulant that grows and diversifies the economy. Migrants continuously search for better job opportunities that provide economic support for themselves and their families. The number of people living outside their originating country has reached over 281 million.
A remittance transfer describes the sending of money or products from an immigrant to a friend or family member back home. Remittances are a very important source of foreign funding for underdeveloped nations. This year, the number of remittance inflows in low and middle-income countries is expected to reach $630 billion.
Regardless of the growth, the infrastructure that supports remittance payments remains inefficient. The average cost of sending a $200 remittance was 6% in 2021.
Lack of accessibility
Technological advancements throughout the last century enabled most people’s digital access to information and communication. On the other end, many people still lack access to basic financial services. Limited mobility due to poverty, unemployment, or unstable income has resulted in over 1.4 billion unbanked people worldwide.
Lack of access to banking and payment solutions imposes significant barriers to economic growth for individuals and businesses. This limits people from starting businesses or funding projects.
Lack of Identity
Lack of identity is a major factor that prevents access to financial systems for the unbanked. Identity is essential to the integration of the individual into the financial system. For fragmented communities facing limited mobility due to poverty, this is a major problem.
Over 1 billion people worldwide cannot prove or verify their identity. They cannot vote, own property, or search for jobs.

$DUA Token, why?
Current economies are not built around inclusivity.
They’re exclusive, therefore, inefficient for fragmented communities.
Aiming to empower fragmented communities based on their social and financial needs, we have identified three key areas that lay the foundation for dua token.
Incentives and Rewards – Tokens are a smart way to build an innovative, incentivized economy for users, leading to a healthy and inclusive economy.
Financial services – Decentralized finance can offer financial inclusion for the unbanked with only a smart device and internet connectivity.
Digital Identity – Institutions inhibit access to digital and financial services without an identity. Billions of internet users have no way to mark their online reputations. Smart contracts can serve these communities.
