Play4Change believes blockchain can empower the population without access to banks to leapfrog the very costly and archaic banking system and have access to previously inaccessible financial services. Play4Change wants to show people that if they invest time learning about web3 and interacting with these new protocols they will also be able to provide value to the ecosystem and benefit from it.
- Financial Exclusion:
There is a huge social inequality in the world due to the lack of access to the financial system by a large part of the population. There are over 1.7 billion people without access to banks and basic financial services.
The pandemic caused high unemployment rates around the world, mainly affecting the low-income population where working at home is not an option. Over 200 million unemployed people worldwide and over 15 million in Brazil. There are over 10 million people living in Favelas (Slums) in Brazil alone. Of the 200 million people living in Brazil, half are gamers, 15% were left unemployed because of the pandemic, and the remaining wages are falling 20% year on year.
- Drug trafficking:
Drug trafficking is unfortunately considered a real career in the underserved communities in Brazil. Teens start out earning between 10 and 20 dollars a week to deliver drugs, but they participate in a hierarchical structure that allows them to move up and increase their salaries, reaching up to 500 dollars a week if they continue to be “promoted”. The idea of P4C is precisely to reach these teenagers at the beginning of their “career”, where we believe that young people are not completely dazzled by the world of crime and when they see an alternative they can change their path.
Emerging technologies such as AI and Robotics will cause massive replacement of people in manual jobs. Upskilling and reskilling will be needed across multiple industries as over 60% of jobs will be automated.
