The Hero Capital Market Platform will utilize blockchain and smart contract technology which will enable a network of financial service marketplaces comprised of a series of interdependent and mutually reinforcing projects in the Southeast Asian market focused primarily on promoting financial inclusion, transparency, and efficiency by enabling the efficient, frictionless, legally enforceable, and profitable transfer of digital currency to/from local fiat currency in order to provide capital for individuals and businesses in markets that are currently excluded from transparent and efficient access to financial services.
Blockchain technology can liberate many financial services from the confines of old institutions, fostering competition and innovation to provide better, faster, and cheaper financial services to those who are outside or heavily burdened by their local and formal financial systems.
Southeast Asia is the world’s fastest growing Internet region and it is the 4th largest Internet market in the world.
Internet economy in Southeast Asia by 2025. According to a study made by Google and Temasek.
More people have a Facebook account than bank accounts.
Since 2015, through our subsidiary company PawnHero, we have been disrupting the current financial system that excludes 2 billion people from the banking system by leveraging technology to create a more inclusive, transparent, and efficient system that allows people to access financial services in Southeast Asia.
Is this really going to happen? Well, it’s already happening. The team behind the Hero Token also started the 1st fully licensed online pawnshop PawnHero in Southeast Asia. PawnHero essentially turns every mobile phone into a pawnshop. Because it uses technology, the interest rates are half of what traditional pawnshops charge.

Your project is so important, financial rights are human rights.
Just to give a background, I am from India and I know a person who is pretty close to me, who got loans from local Pawn shop for high interest rate. The rate was so high that the person could not manage to pay, got into lot of financial difficulties and eventually he died because of the financial depression. It happened few years ago. Since my childhood, I hated these pawnshops a.k.a blood suckers!. The moment I saw your project, i got connected immediately. As I said I pray for this project to be very successful for not because I want to make money but for to change lives of very vulnerable people. Very good luck to you and your team. I wish you a great success in this project!
Very nice website. The more that I learn the more excited I am about the potential of PawnHero. The nice thing is that this is already a functioning business that is just poising itself to expand
