Planq is the first cryptocurrency to focus on usability on mobile platforms, moving away from a dependency on heavy computer applications. Further, Planq is OS-agnostic, allowing any mobile device, regardless of its operating system, to run the platform.
More than half of the world’s population doesn’t have access to desktop or laptop computers. On the other hand, over 80% have access to a mobile phone. Planq’s approach seeks to unlock the full potential of those around the globe who have mobile phones but may not have a computer, enabling them to become full participants in the Planq ecosystem.
This means those who only have access to a phone or other mobile device can use the Planq blockchain to interact with DApps, DeFi applications, and other mobile users—without needing a desktop.
Planq’s mobile-first model breaks down barriers to access, inviting a wider swath of users, from a diverse array of communities, to engage with blockchain technology. The impact will be felt in everything from peer-to-peer exchanges to DApp development and DeFi.
