MenaPay is the first, fully backed blockchain-based payment gateway in the Middle East and Africa. MenaPay replaces traditional payment methods with a blockchain-based fully backed cryptocurrency. This provides a secure and transparent payment gateway to enable transactions for every aspect of daily life. The MenaPay project was started in November 2017 to serve 420 million people, across 18 countries, as their primary payment method. MenaPay will distribute 75% of total revenue and profit amongst holders of MenaPay. It is creating a new standard in the crypto industry for the level of participatory returns, beyond the regular incentives for users and investors.
