Team Capsule

At the core of UBU is a group of diverse people, united by a common purpose: to create a connected economy where everyone has value. The challenge was to develop a cost-free, self-sustaining, universal basic income. After 2 years of development, the model was presented as a White Paper in 2017 and went into Beta mode. Commercial activations, focused on pilot areas in South Africa, commenced October 2018.

UBU.core is the legal entity that designed, built, operates and maintains the UBU ecosystem. UBU Core International GmbH Switzerland is the global licensor for UBU while UBU Core (PTY) LTD is the South African operating company.
