How It Works

Human Centered Design

Sikka’s user interface deploys a human-centered design that does not require more than a basic knowledge of how to operate a feature phone and will not need asmartphone. Sikka will offer access to modular and powerful blockchain solutions while providing a simple a user interface to provide these services to non-technical users

Why Sikka?

After a disaster, the distribution of aid in the form of cash is often complicated due to the lack of infrastructure and services in remote and rural areas. Blockchain technology delivered over cellular networks can play a key role in enabling the transfer of digital assets through smart contracts, thus addressing the needs of rural communities in Nepal while ensuring minimal operational and overhead costs ensuring majority of the donated amount reaches the beneficiaries.
