BlocPal and OneFeather partner to launch OneFeather APP for the Indigenous communitiesBlocPal International, a digital transaction company that integrates blockchain and payment processing solutions to make financial services more affordable and accessible, has announced partnering with OneFeather, a national leader in dedicated Indigenous banking solutions, to launch a new digital banking application – the OneFeather APP.

The launch marks a major milestone in financial inclusion for the Indigenous communities. Through the new application, Indigenous communities will now have access to banking solutions, digital voting, and First Nations Status Card renewals in a single digital wallet.

“Our goal at BlocPal is to continue to increase financial inclusivity in the communities who need it most. Having the ability not only to be an investor but a strategic partner with OneFeather has helped attain this goal of affordable banking solutions and has helped increase accessibility for Canadian Indigenous communities,” said Nick Mellios, CEO of BlocPal.

Leveraging BlocPal’s digital transaction platform to add new features to the OneFeather APP like GST rebates, micro-loans, government distributions, and bill payments, helps drive a highly differentiated solution that delivers increased convenience to First Nations members.

“The launch of the new OneFeather APP couldn’t come at a better time. The Indigenous communities have been at a considerable disadvantage with banking accessibility and its associated costs. Having the ability to use this digital wallet for multiple uses will provide a place for First Nations to launch and run businesses, have control over their finances, and be a part of digital banking options. BlocPal’s strong technology perfectly complements our value proposition resulting in an innovative digital wallet for members of the community,” said Lawrence Lewis, CEO and founder of OneFeather.

BlocPal’s mission is to enhance financial inclusivity and financial empowerment in underserved communities. With OneFeather redefining the Indigenous experience through innovation and tradition, assisting OneFeather with the banking aspect of its new application brings a cohesive alliance to help increase accessibility and affordability for the Indigenous communities in Canada.
