There are currently half a billion gig workers around the world. Technologies like 5G and circumstances like the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic lockdowns are only accelerating the decentralization of work. At the same hastening pace, freelancers, independent contractors, project-based workers and part-time hires are organizing themselves around platforms where they may accrue more than just paychecks: they are building their reputations one customer rating at a time, to demand the rate they deserve.

Now they can take their accumulated reputation to the bank. Bankuish was born out of the COVID-19 crisis to help struggling gig workers turn their years of proven trustworthiness into creditworthiness. Financial institutions around the world struggle to reach the 4 billion underbanked due to lack of information; but most underbanked work with their smartphones. Bankuish bridges the gap.

From the Future of Work to the Future of Banking.
