BRAVO ICO Whitelist
BRAVO started in 2014 and set out to revolutionise the tipping and anonymous payment industry with their seamless mobile payment application. In 2017, BRAVO was featured on ABC's SharkTank and got a deal with Mark Cuban & Lori Greiner. Since then, they have gained a significant amount of traction with tens of thousands of users and millions of dollars worth in transactions.
BRAVOs plan to achieve global impact and grow outside of the United States is in the process of being realised, and even more so with the implementation of Blockchain and tokenization technologies to allow anonymous, secure and seamless transactions around the world; with minimal fees.

BRAVO solves various obstacles within the current payments market, user privacy, the blockchain and cryptocurrency methods of payment. The technology is robust but there are still significant challenges we aim to improve and solve.
Globally, we are moving to a cashless society, yet billions of people are unbanked and must rely on cash to earn a living and to pay for goods and services.
Cryptocurrency remains largely inaccessible to most people and businesses due to its complexity.
Mass adoption of existing blockchain payment platforms have been negatively affected by their design and lack of user-friendly interfaces. They have a complicated onboarding process and key management system, and fall short in terms of anonymity and security. Transaction fees can be expensive and the platforms slow due to high latency.16 This complex and at times clunky user experience forgoes the simplicity and strength of the blockchain technology.
Privacy and security of payments and personal data continues to worry consumers. Blockchain seems like a solution but implementation is hard and transactions potentially traceable.
On an ideal platform, the user can sign up and create an account with KYC/AML (know your customer and anti-money laundering) flawlessly in seconds. The system should be able to execute a transaction without entering long private / public keys; should be able to keep payments private, secure and anonymous directly from a mobile app decreasing risk for web hacking and phishing; and finally, should be able to keep the account encrypted and safe but never lose access and ownership to tokens.
Our challenge was to create a trusted, easy-to-use and anonymous mobile payment platform for a new generation of users that value privacy, security and anonymity with a seamless user experience.
BRAVO is creating a blockchain-powered mobile payments platform that addresses the technological challenges with the current micropayments market while increasing its usability and adoption for both consumers and businesses.
After proven success with mobile fiat transactions, our team began developing our blockchain platform to run the BRAVO mobile payments app and support enhanced anonymity and security, improved cryptocurrency wallet sign up and onboarding process, and a simple PIN access code that improves usability. Since launching our MVP and beta version in U.S., our team focused on improving onboarding, KYC/AML compliance, data encryption, tokenization and security.
With the BRAVO app, there is no need for long public or private keys or third-party custodians of keys or funds. Users have a simple but secure password recovery protocol to ensure full control and access to their tokens and funds. BRAVO runs on a proprietary blockchain platform created by our engineering team to optimize security, integrity and functionality. We created an Incognito Payments protocol as a solution for enhanced privacy.
Users have full control of privacy, funds and payments which are executed in seconds without intermediary bank or third party blockchain platforms and no hidden fees. BRAVO is also designed to integrate with, and power other applications.
The BRAVO blockchain is the culmination of years of research, user feedback, design and engineering. Blockchain technology will allow BRAVO to scale at a faster rate and accommodate a much larger user base. It not only enhances user anonymity and transaction transparency, but it also broadens the applicability and reach by expanding the BRAVO ecosystem globally with a single platform that is seamless and consistent.
