CEO and co-founder of Paxful, Mr. Ray Youssef, told Vanguard that the traditional financial system is failing 99 percent of the world’s population, explaining that this means there is no way out of income inequality for a lot of people in the world.

Youssef said: “With crypto-currencies, we see an alternative, a way to rest the financial system based on equality. Our mission at Paxful is to give everyone equal access to finance no matter who they are or where they are so they can control their own money and build the future they want with financial freedom.”
