Horizen and Cripto Conserje Team Up to Battle the Refugee Crisis in Latin America and Help Communities in Need.
One of our greatest values as a company is building a better world for everyone. Horizen has recently partnered with Cripto Conserje, a Latin American group dedicated to helping people in need learn about and adopt cryptocurrencies. Together, we are bringing ZEN to these communities and providing the help they desperately need.
Horizen is one of the key partners of Cripto Conserje’s Alpha Project. Alpha Project’s goal is to increase cryptocurrency adoption in Latin America. By taking a parnter role in this project, We will be able to help battle the refugee crisis as well as push toward ZEN mass adoption in Latin America.
Helping Others Make Change
Our efforts recently began in Cucuta Colombia assisting Venezuelan refugees. Over 2.3 million people have fled from Venezuela over the last 4 years to escape staggering inflation, food and medicine shortages, and the return of deadly diseases. Many refugees only had Venezuelan currency and had difficulty exchanging their Venezuelan Bolivars for the Colombian Peso. Without pesos, many refugees were unable to purchase basic necessities like food, which led to higher rates of theft.
Horizen and Cripto Conserje are alleviating the difficulties these refugees are facing.
Together we are providing ZEN paper wallets and education to those in need, ensuring they have secure ways to access and control their money no matter where they are and what situation they are in. We are also onboarding 100 local merchants to begin accepting ZEN as payments.

The video below highlights our team as we teach refugees about cryptocurrency and how to use their paper wallets. Some of the individuals in the video prefer to remain anonymous because they fear reprisal from Secret Police forces in the locations they have relocated to.
