our mission

Build a multitrillion dollar decentralised economy to help end poverty in Africa.


Increasing opportunity and equality in Africa by raising median income and providing opportunity

Humanity Nodes is an active ecosystem developed with the community members at its core. HN uses three main drivers to create value that can be distributed as income and wealth to its members; Personal Natural Resources, blockchain technology, and community focused business architecture. Personal Natural Resources: The HN platform addresses extreme poverty through the Personal Natural Resources (PNR) proprietary mining protocol. PNR permits community members to turn pledges of me into a $2+ daily wage and/or equity wealth in the form of start-up investments. The pledges consist mostly of the following assignments: Growing Community, Education and Coaching, Creating and Sharing Content, Transactions with other ecosystem units, Ecommerce, Verifying Identity, and Scoring Completed Tasks.
