What is Accrew?

Accrew is the first member-owned banking application, empowering members as owners of the company they bank and returning profits in form of the Accrew DAO token.

 

Accrew is providing simple tools for members to manage all of their financial accounts with one app by displaying balances, transactions, and transferring to/from all accounts.

 

Accrew is building the banking community of the future where members are owners; available on both iOS and Android.

2

What is Accrew's mission?

Accrew’s mission is to bridge the gap between banks and the blockchain for far better rates, features, and rewards.

 

Better rewards by owning a piece of the company you bank.

 

Better rates by providing FDIC high-yield accounts and easy access to high-yield DeFi accounts. Where members bypass the bank and go directly to the market to originate a loan via smart contract and receive higher yields.

 

Better features, instead of having 5 different apps to manage 5 different accounts, you can connect all your accounts to the Accrew app to see account balances, transactions, and transfer to/from all your accounts.

3

How does Accrew make money?

Accrew generates profits for its members from interchange, whenever a member swipes their card, the merchant always pays a small percentage of the transaction. Also, Accrew generates revenue from net interest margin or a small portion of the yield on members’ accounts.

 

The best part, Accrew has set up a DAO or Decentralized Autonomous Organization for members. Currently, the DAO owns 20% of Accrew and receives all the profits from the company but in the future, the DAO will own 100% of the company.

 

Think of all the possibilities when members can wield the market cap of their bank to provide better returns, buy/invest in companies with free perks, donate to charities or disasters, or anything up to the imagination of the members; it’s your banking community!
