Machankura Clans Feature Lets Africans Send & Receive Bitcoin as a Group
  • "Clans give you the ability to send and receive Bitcoin as a group on Machankura."
  • "Sending Bitcoin requires approval from the members/admins. With the added option to equally distribute the balance to all members (Hello to the stokvels and chamas)."
  • "To create a clan input a unique username and your selection of an action policy."
  • "Either have a policy to require majority (50%) or super majority (75%) approval from the members or the admins so that transactions get processed."
"Upon creation clan gets a  lightning address with the provided username. If you know a clans username you can also deposit funds to it via its webpage (This also allows deposits via onchain transactions)."
  • "Clan admins are able to invite members (via their phone number or Machankura username) into a clan. These members then get the ability to see and participate in the clan (with it's balance and transaction history)."
  • "Coming soon: the ability to replace a member with a new member."
  • "Any member of the clan can propose Bitcoin be spent to either a phone number, a username, or a lightning address."
  • "Members also have the ability to propose the clan balance (in it's entirety or a portion) be distributed to all the members."
  • "This feature is still in beta. Please have fun exploring and let us know how we can improve it."
