Takeaways

  • The Federal Credit Union Act is ideal for blockchain-based financial systems
  • Credit unions exist outside the banking and the SEC jurisdiction
  • Credit unions are managed via consensus of members
  • Blockchain-based credit unions run on an app, making them ubiquitous

The purpose of the Federal Credit Union Act of 1934 was to make credit available to all Americans and promote savings and economy through a national system of nonprofit, cooperative credit unions.

Like banks, credit unions accept deposits and make loans, but as member-owned institutions, credit unions focus on providing a safe place to save and borrow without the money-making penalties of for-profit banks. They exist completely outside of the banking network which was too big to fail. Therefore, if a blockchain is organized under the NCUA, it is not under the jurisdiction of the SEC and traditional banking laws.

What is a blockchain-based credit union?

In a blockchain-based credit union, administrative processes are run on a smart contract governed by its members. MFCU is working with the NCUA as a pilot to establish the model and framework for blockchain-based credit unions.

Not needing a physical building, a blockchain credit union is fully operational through an app. These apps are also nodes in a network, allowing members to vote on decisions pertaining to money, rules, and trajectory, co-building the ecosystem. With no physical building or employees, more benefits accrue to members of the credit union.

As cryptocurrency and DeFi advance, blockchain-based credit unions will be ready. GBA members in the US can now utilize and add value to the Maven Federal Credit Union ecosystem.
