After last amazing couple of years Pungo is saying goodbye for good.

Blockchain is a fascinating technology, with many projects being build for all tastes. Some more focused on mainstream and some others building amazing decentralized techs that could potentially create new governance forms and independent economies. In my humble opinion the second is way more interesting than helping biggest tech/financial companies settle their accounts faster and more securely.

One may discuss that the impact on vastly improving record keeping, clearing and account control on biggest tech/fintech companies directly impacts a vast amount of population. In the short term, that’s true; in the mid & long term, it brings even more power over people to those giant corporations; so I guess it’s a matter of own tastes regarding how people really benefits from tech. …

About Pungo

Let me become a bit intimate this days. Things have changed radically the last few weeks, however, we come from crypto, where continuous-fast change is the rule.

More recently, most of the world has had no option but to stay home and try to understand how the world is changing our lives at high speed. At Pungo I have been tirelessly working day and night to get our Pungo Cash app finally out and after such effort, the path ahead is even harder :)

When I look back at 2014 when I discovered crypto, NXT, Supernet, Jl777 plans to build great tech, well, I can’t avoid realizing how many things I have learnt along the way by trying to build up with my own hands what started as a kind of hobby project by late 2016. …


At Pungo we have been busy building a real network to evolve to a blockchain based global payment platform

THE PROBLEM: Paying and transferring funds globally is a multi-billion market and should be a pretty simple concept but is still one of the hardest things people from around the world faces on a daily basis, especially those in developing countries or unstable economies and currencies

Crypto isn’t anymore what it used to be. In fact, it’s better.

However now we don’t call it “cryptocurrency” we call it “Blockchain”. Now it’s harder to find “coins”, we find “tokens”.

In 2019 it’s exciting to be a young startup still fighting to be there and yet delivering. We rebranded to Pungo on 1st January 2019 by releasing this video (less than 1min, watch it!)

After that, we have been silent for some weeks. …


Probably you missed our Pungo Token nice infographics explaining our value proposition. Now, 1 month away from ICO end we already have moved directly to Step 3: Delivering & Scaling the project

I usually say we are not yet another ICO. Yes, I know you will probably think that you have already heard this song, however let us ANNOUNCE some details before you see our nice charts down the post

What is going on?

  1. Our ICO started on mid-september. We were not expecting to raise huge amounts given the bear market but we wanted a meaningful Token so we have spent the time to make sure our token was the right thing, even if we missed the ICO-fever.

Startups and blockchain are a natural match as a new digital economy is being born.

We know that blockchain might be able to revolutionize many fields but there is one that is on top of the list: money and value.

Many tend to compare cryptocurrency with biggest state currencies but that’s not a fair competition. Cryptocurrencies are a new form of private money which can hold thousands of utilities. We are approaching an epoch where millions of currencies, each one with its own aims, will start to appear in a global borderless world.

Medici private money in 15th century

Reinventing how money and value is transferred should not scare us. As in all historical races this is opening the door for a vast amount of economical actors to be able to participate in a brand new private currencies market. …

When we started thinking about creating a Token for the digital economy we realised that it should be something different from what was being done by many projects out there.

In our case we wanted to deliver real value to our token holders by sharing revenue but we also want to develop an in-app economy through all our projects and/or partnered projects.

PART 1: A token backed by real value

It took us some time to set up everything , but finally we came up with the concept of “Revenue share” through a Public Buyback Fund.

To guarantee that collected REVENUES are always there and are collected in a honest way we have set up a full transparency program with Inlea Foundation through its Opening Chain project to provide holders with all information regarding the funds sent to Public Buyback Fund.


We are living a paradigm shift where the exponential growth of e-commerce and the internet has pushed changes in the way to pay and hence the raise of payment methods and similar instruments worldwide.

Cryptocurrencies are re-inventing how the money is understood and how value is transferred over the world. For first time in history a currency can be totally trustless and protocolized. This means that money and value transfer just landed into the internet era.
