Billions. Not Thousands. Not Millions. Billions.

That’s the number of users that will join web3 in the coming years and decades.

Along with them, countless new projects and transactions will join the market too.

This next phase of adoption will need a unified way to bridge the new users into web3 and finally connect the space together.

No more limited products that tear the entire market apart. Enough with centralized solutions that steal your data and privacy.

Bridging billions of new users through web3 won’t get done with any of these standalone tools. We need an entire vision to facilitate this adoption.

A vision that encompasses seamless user experience and inclusion of the entire ecosystem, with self-custody, self-sovereign identity, and privacy at the center of the tech itself.

That’s where Brillion comes in. The next step of the evolution of dua Pay, the Brillion brand, is here on a mission to develop the all-inclusive gateway to web3.

In this blog post, you will learn more about how dua Pay, remittances and cross-border payments solution built for the dua.com app, has become a much bigger brand for the financial inclusion of billions of people.

Stick around to learn about the vision of Brillion and what you can expect next on the product front.

Brillion: Bridging Billions, Orchestrating Financial Evolution, One Transaction at a Time

Brillion is a new brand developed by the dua foundation — we’re the team that started from dua.com, a popular dating app, with millions of active users.

In 2022, we ventured into web3 space, using AllianceBlock’s technology to develop a wallet for our large user base.

Excited by the potential of the technology, the initial goal was to focus on enabling cross-border payments and remittances inside the dua.com app with a product called dua Pay, helping our community easily send money abroad with the $DUA token.

The journey has been exciting so far, including a successful Fundrs-powered funding round, a Telegram community of thousands of people, as well as partnerships with Blocksquare and FLUUS.

Simultaneously, the development of the dua.com dating app continues to gain momentum. With over 1 million monthly active users and the recent acquisition of the dating app spotted.de, we are well-positioned to realize our ambition of becoming the first Balkan Unicorn startup brand.

However, during the development of the dua wallet, one thing became clear:

Using AllianceBlock and NexeraID’s technology to build the wallet opened doors to new opportunities outside of dua.com’s user base.

The collaboration resulted in new ideas and solutions that exceeded the limits of a single wallet and userbase. These solutions can reach a wider audience and significantly impact more than we initially thought.

The objective shifted from serving millions to empowering billions in interacting with the web3 space through cross-border payments, digital identity and more.

To support this new long-term vision, we are excited to announce the rebrand from dua Pay to Brillion, a pivotal step in our journey to accelerating the adoption of web3.

Our mission is simple (but huge). To help billions of people bridge into web3 with the right tools that help them navigate the ecosystem with full control of their assets, identity and data.

The name ‘Brillion’ symbolizes the aim of connecting billions of people and the immense potential of each individual in our ecosystem.
