Though being surrounded by credit from a young age, many still have no idea how it works. A study by TransUnion showed that 46-56% of high-school-aged students don’t understand what is factored into a credit report or credit history.
Understanding and building up credit takes years. And even if you’ve got a healthy report in your home country, credit can’t transfer across – this means that you’ll have to start from scratch.
In a world where 1 in 10 students study outside of their home country and 3.2% of the world population work abroad, we are on a mission to make credit easy, transferrable, and globally verifiable.
✅ We monitor and analyse data from bite-sized peer-to-peer loans, save it on the blockchain and use it to build a credit history that can be internationally verified.
✅ With the help of Open Banking APIs, mobile-first Tinder-like design, educational content, and the elements of gamification, we encourage reasonable credit behavior and a healthy relationship with credit.

We plan to generate revenue from transaction fees (we call them "matching fees" and from charging brands to place content on our integrated educational platform).
Matching fee: 1% from the loan amount
We are now in a pilot project with 4 Norwegian companies who post videos and articles inside the application.
Our architecture will allow third parties to connect to one or several of our blockchain channels (upon consent from users) to validate the data. This means that a bank or a credit bureau that wants to check the validity of the user's claims regarding their loan behavior can connect to our system and validate the information. We can provide readable JSON files with raw data or systematise the data and monetise aggregated data insights by creating industry reports. This part is by far the least explored by us, but we see a great value in it. So, we have created a solid tech foundation to enable it.
Use of proceeds
We'll allocate 30% of the funds to compliance. Now we're moving toward securing our registration (since a license is not required) in Norway to be able to list on the app store. The plan is to get a PSP license in Lithuania and then passport it to the EU. After that - to apply for a license in the UK.
Though we're still in beta in the small country of Norway, we see a lot of great ideas coming from our users. Roughly 40% of the funds will be spent to make these ideas come true. E.g., making a credit report downloadable right from the app, saving contact details of previous matches, adding additional data points for a more accurate Trust Score and so on.
Since the word "credit" is one of the most expensive to rank for in Google, we need to be creative with our marketing. We plan to launch a referral program and engage with Social Media influencers to spread the word about Lendonomy. We plan to spend about 30% on expanding our user base.
Let's help youth build a healthy relationship with credit. Join us on our journey.
