Ubcoin Market Receives Investment from Singapore-Based Amereus Group for the Expansion

This is a paid press release, which contains forward looking statements, and should be treated as advertising or promotional material. Bitcoin.com does not endorse nor support this product/service. Bitcoin.com is not responsible for or liable for any content, accuracy or quality within the press release.

A Singapore-based VC fund specializing in groundbreaking tech projects has become an investor in Ubank’s blockchain ecosystem for selling and buying real goods with cryptocurrency

Ubank, the leading mobile payments app in the Eastern Europe, announced that it has secured an undisclosed amount of funding from the Singapore-based VC fund Amereus Group for the further development of its peer-to-peer blockchain platform Ubcoin Market that would allow its users to acquire cryptocurrency in exchange for real goods and its promotion in the booming Asian market.

Amereus Group is an investment fund supporting innovative tech-enabled businesses in fintech, blockchain, IoT, e-commerce, cloud services, biomedicine, mobile Internet, EdTech, VR, and AR. The fund’s portfolio includes biotech companies Cleabridge Health and Liquidia, a crowdinvesting platform Capbridge, an online aggregator of logistic carriers for international cargo Deliver, and other projects.

“We are excited to announce our decision to support the development of Ubcoin Market and its expansion into the Asian market. Ubcoin Market will become an integral part of Ubank, an app that has been successfully operating in the Eastern Europe for more than 5 years now and that is pre-installed on all Fly and Samsung smartphones, which is particularly impressive considering that only 9% of all ICO projects have a working business and/or product prior to the start of their crowdfunding campaign,“ comments Rim Hosup, Director at Amereus Group. “Apart from that, Ubank has ensured that their blockchain product meets all KYC and AML requirements and has conducted due diligence and all the other procedures proving the stability, transparency, and legality of the company and its structure. It is another very important point that sets Ubcoin Market apart from the majority of ICO projects and that has naturally influenced our decision”.

Ubcoin Market utilizes blockchain technologies to create an easy-to-use tool that would solve problems of people wishing to enter the world of crypto investments in a hassle-free manner as well as of experienced blockchain market participants in need of a convenient method of spending their crypto wealth. The project is planning to start its expansion into the Asian market during the 2nd and 3d quarters of 2019. Ubcoin Market is going to conduct a detailed preparatory research of separate national markets in order to adjust their product development strategy for local cultures, and Ubcoin Market’s partnership with the Singapore-based Amereus Group will be highly valuable in that respect.

“Asia is the most promising market for the development of our business — we believe that it is in these countries that our product will be most popular. That’s why we are thrilled to become partners with the investment fund Amereus Group that is willing to provide a financial support as well as a deep insight into different national markets of the continent,” says Felix Khachatryan, CEO and one of the co-founders of Ubank and Ubcoin Market.

Amereus Group is the third major investment fund that has supported Ubank: in 2013, Ubank received an $8 million investment from Runa Capital and, in April 2018, an undisclosed amount of funding from Inventure Partners.

Ubcoin Market is open to collaboration with other investment funds and pools focused on the ICO market and encourages them to contact the project now, at the stage of its token sale, when the project’s partners are guaranteed especially favourable terms.

About Ubcoin Market

Ubcoin Market was founded by the same team that founded Ubank, the leading mobile payments app in Eastern Europe that, as of today, has 2.5 million active users , more than 16 million downloads around the world, and has been pre-installed by Samsung and Fly.

Hanoi Prohibits Use of Cryptocurrencies in E-commerce Transactions

Hanoi Prohibits Use of Cryptocurrencies in E-commerce Transactions

The Hanoi Department of Industry and Trade has prohibited organizations and individuals involved in e-commerce business in the city from using bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. This follows a directive signed by the country’s prime minister intended to strengthen the legal framework of cryptocurrencies.

Banning Crypto Use in E-commerce

The Hanoi Department of Industry and Trade announced on Saturday that it has sent document No. 1638 / SCT-QLTM to “organizations and individuals directly or indirectly related to e-commerce business in Hanoi [to] not use bitcoin and other virtual currencies (cryptocurrencies) to settle e-commerce transactions online.” Citing that if violations are detected, “they shall be strictly dealt with according to the provisions of the law,” the regulator wrote:

The Department of Industry and Trade requires organizations and individuals who are directly or indirectly involved in e-commerce business in Hanoi to strictly abide by the above-mentioned regulations and do not use bitcoin and other virtual currencies….in payment of e-commerce transactions, online purchases and sales, [and] payment [of] online services in contravention of Vietnamese law.

Vietnamese Law on Crypto

Hanoi Prohibits Use of Cryptocurrencies in E-commerce TransactionsCiting provisions of the government’s Decree No. 101/2012 / ND-CP on non-cash payment instruments, the document reiterates, “bitcoin and other similar virtual currencies are not legal means of payment in Vietnam; The issuance, supply, use of bitcoin and similar virtual currency is prohibited in Vietnam.”

Violations are subject to a “fine of between VND 150,000,000 [~US$6,608] and 200,000,000 [~$8,810] for individuals and for organizations with two times the fine level for personal,” the document emphasizes. Furthermore, as of January this year, issuing and using cryptocurrencies “may be subject to criminal prosecution.”

Hanoi Prohibits Use of Cryptocurrencies in E-commerce TransactionsLast week, the Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc signed a directive to strengthen the management of activities related to bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. This follows reports of the country’s “biggest digital money fraud in history,” which duped approximately 32,000 Vietnamese out of VNĐ15 trillion (~$658 million). The police are currently investigating the case.

Meanwhile, the Justice Ministry, the State Bank of Vietnam (SBV), and related agencies are working on the regulatory framework for cryptocurrencies. According to the Ho Chi Minh City Customs Department, the number of bitcoin mining rigs legally imported into the country has skyrocketed since last year, prompting the department to propose a ban on their imports. Earlier this year, the department revealed that, in the first three weeks of January, almost 8,000 mining rigs were legally imported into the city.

Everledger’s Kemp and Omise’s Hasegawa join TC Blockchain

Blockchain technology and the decentralizing effects of distributed ledgers have enormous amounts of potential and may mean the Internet will never be the same again. The fact that one could eventually run vast applications without any servers is equally transformational. But it’s still very much a wild west out there in terms of ascertaining who is working on ‘the real deal’.

The blockchain world is currently weighed down with the expectations of dubious crypto-currency speculators and sky-high ICOs and hacks that are interfering with a frank conversation about the future.

Which is why TechCrunch has decided to throw its hat into the ring and try to bring together the leading players in the space for a frank discussion and inquiry into this next phase in Zug, Switzerland, this July.

At TC Sessions: Blockchain 2018, TechCrunch’s editors will bring together top figures in the blockchain technology world to discuss how and where blockchain technology is going to disrupt the status quo.

We’re delighted to announce that Jun Hasegawa, CEO / Founder of Omise, a multinational payments company currently present in Thailand (HQ), Japan, Singapore and Indonesia that has raised over $50M in funding.

In 2015, his desire to push the boundaries led Omise to become the very first financial services company to join the Ethereum community. In 2017, after over a year of research and development, this culminated in the launch of OmiseGO, the crowd-funded blockchain division tasked with creating the OMG network. This is an Ethereum-based public blockchain with the ambitious vision of enabling financial service equity by radically decentralizing value transfer and exchange.

Prior to founding payments Omise, Jun was involved in founding a series of tech companies in Japan mainly in the fields of e-commerce, lifelog and mobile payments and is currently based in Bangkok.

We’ll also be joined by one of the leading proponents of blockchain tech to track the provenance of real-world objects.

Leanne Kemp, is Founder & CEO of Everledger – a digital, global ledger that tracks and protects items of value.

Using her knowledge of emerging technologies, business, jewelry and insurance, Everledger is aiming at a new kind of global transparency for luxury, constructing a digital verification system that assists in the reduction of fraud, black markets, and trafficking.

Everledger was recently named Best Blockchain Company at the Financial Tech Awards 2016, Best Newcomer at the Asia Insurance Technology Awards 2016, Innovator of the Year at the Penrose Awards, and Best B2B Start-up at the Digital Top 50 Awards.

TC Sessions: Blockchain 2018 is being built on the hugely successful Disrupt San Francisco 2017 event, which included discussions on blockchain startups, cryptocurrency and ICOs with guests such as Ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin .

But why is it in Zug, Switzerland?

Well, Zug has become known as “Crypto Valley” because of the numerous blockchain companies that have moved there to capitalize on the canton’s forward-thinking approach to regulation and favorable tax approach for cutting-edge projects.

As well as the above speakers we’ll also be joined by Brian Behlendorf, the executive director of the Hyperledger project, an open source, collaborative effort advancing blockchain technologies in areas like marketplaces, data-sharing networks, micro-currencies and decentralized digital communities.

At the event we’ll be covering how decentralization will impact the internet and web services today; how big businesses and enterprises are moving forward to tap the potential of the blockchain; what the future of financing through crypto and ICOs might look like; and the important technological breakthroughs and challenges facing blockchain.

More speakers are due to be announced in the coming weeks and months, but you can already buy a ticket here.

South Korea Discusses Cryptocurrency Policies With China’s Central Bank

The South Korean Minister of Strategy and Finance has met with the governor of the People’s Bank of China to discuss and share economic policies including cryptocurrency countermeasures. While China has imposed strict regulations on cryptocurrency trading, including closing down exchanges, South Korea has adopted a less strict approach.

Kim Dong-yeon and Zhou Xiaochuan meeting.

The South Korean Minister of Strategy and Finance, Kim Dong-yeon, on Friday met with the governor of the People’s Bank of China (PBOC), Zhou Xiaochuan. While discussing the economic issues of both countries, the regulators also discussed their cryptocurrency policies, local media report.

China has imposed a ban on cryptocurrency trading including closing down domestic crypto exchanges. South Korea, however, has been successively releasing countermeasures for cryptocurrencies since December. The Korean government has considered various measures ranging from a complete ban suggested by the Ministry of Justice to less strict measures. At the end of last month, the regulators mandated the implementation of the new real-name account system for all cryptocurrency exchanges.

Kim was quoted by Newsis describing:

The two sides shared their opinions on the situation and policy responses of the two countries regarding the recent virtual currency issues.

During the meeting, the PBOC reaffirmed its close cooperation with the South Korean government, the news outlet added. The Korean ministry also said that it will continue to cooperate with the PBOC “through high-level consultation channels,” Asia Today reported.

Korea Avoids Closing Down Exchanges

South Korea Discusses Cryptocurrency Policies With PBOC
Kim Dong-yeon.

While the South Korean government has continually emphasized the importance of strict measures to curb the overheated cryptocurrency market, closing down crypto exchanges has been avoided so far.

At the National Assembly Planning and Finance Committee meeting on Wednesday, Kim pointed out that there may be a problem of underground transactions and foreign currency leakage if exchanges are closed, YTN reported. Money Today then quoted him saying:

The government has no intention of eliminating or suppressing virtual currencies…I am currently discussing urgent matters with the [cryptocurrency] task force in the government because the virtual transaction facilities [exchanges] regulated by the e-commerce law are the biggest problem.

Cryptocurrency exchanges are not financial entities in Korea; they fall under the e-commerce law. In contrast, Kim noted that, in Japan, they are managed by registration with the country’s financial authority.

Kim’s meeting with the PBOC governor followed the South Korean government’s announcement in early January that it will cooperate with China and Japan to address cryptocurrency speculation. In addition, the vice chairman of the country’s Financial Supervisory Commission (FSC), Kim Yong-bum, also urged 23 other countries and 12 organizations, including the International Monetary Fund and the European Union, to collaborate on curbing cryptocurrency trading.

Ebay Is Finally Breaking It Off With PayPal, Which Is Doing Just Great By the Way

Photo: AP

PayPal and eBay, two brands that were best friends forever for like 15 years or so, are destined to be platonic besties no longer.

Per Recode, eBay announced on Wednesday that it plans to stop using PayPal as its back-end services provider, and when their contract expires the online marketplace will switch to a long-term deal with Amsterdam-based company Adyen. That means Adyen, not PayPal, will begin processing all transactions on the site, and PayPal will be relegated to second-class status:

After the existing eBay-PayPal agreement ends in 2020, PayPal will remain a payment option for shoppers on eBay, but it won’t be prominently featured ahead of debit and credit card options as it is today. PayPal will cease to process card payments for eBay at that time.

Ebay’s interest here is in controlling more elements of the checkout process in order to make the user experience more hassle-free like Amazon—and the money on the table highlights the stakes.

Per Recode, Adyen registered just $178 million in 2016 compared to PayPal, which made $11 billion that year. In other words, Adyen hit a potential jackpot if all goes well; it’s heading for an IPO this year. All this counts on eBay turning around from a rough couple of years that’s seen competitors like Amazon and Alibaba steal much of its turf.

“We believe that we can offer a more seamless experience while giving buyers and sellers more choice for payment and payout options,” eBay CEO Devin Wenig told analysts, the Wall Street Journal reported.

PayPal has been eBay’s main payments provider since 2003 and from 2003-2015 was a subdivision of the company. In mid-2014, around the time PayPal was beginning to eclipse eBay in value, the latter company provided more than 30 percent of PayPal’s profits and 50 percent of its revenue, per Recode.

So this breakup has got to sting a little, even if PayPal has long since moved on to sowing its wild oats across the rest of the e-commerce industry. According to CNBC, stock in PayPal fell 10 percent on Wednesday, though the Journal noted its executives are trying to paint eBay as simply not a profitable enough focus:

[Ebay] executives added that PayPal’s eBay volume was growing slower than its non-eBay volume. They said that trend would get a boost from recently-signed agreements for PayPal to be a payment option at large retailers including Walt Disney Co. , Dillard’s Inc. and QVC Inc. for the first time.

PayPal will be fine, however: It earning reports say profits rose 59 percent in the last quarter of 2017 compared to the prior year.

Blockchain revolution is happening. Sure, we are in first days yet, in “stone age” of cryptocurrency. Nevertheless, practical business solutions are already emerging. One of the most known and functional is Ethereum blockchain.

Ethereum not only enables online payments; it is also capable of running any decentralized application’s programming code. As such, it can greatly help businesses by making transactions more efficient. Here are some of the ways it does so:

Ethereum ensures data security and accuracy

Ethereum keeps business transactions secure as they are encrypted and employed in a closed peer-to-peer system. This ensures that they are protected from fraud, theft, and privacy violations.

In addition, Ethereum provides a system for the accurate maintenance of records. It prevents them from being modified after they are added to the ledger and it adds a timestamp, making the ledger more reliable and accurate than databases and spreadsheets. This in turn enables the company to earn the trust of both their employees and clients.

Ethereum makes it easier for businesses to increase their reach

With Ethereum, businesses are able to save on the costs incurred from sending and receiving payments from other countries. They are also able to minimize the delays that are usually experienced with international transactions, in turn making more people and companies want to work with them.

Ethereum makes it easier to form agreements

Unlike traditional contracts that must be notarized, Ethereum enables the creation of smart contracts without the need for middlemen. These smart contracts define and enforce the terms and penalties that come with the agreement.

How to Integrate Cryptocurrency Payments into Your Business

There are indeed many benefits to enabling cryptocurrency payments into your business. It ensures that your transactions are kept secure and accurate. It allows you to save on costs, particularly when making or receiving payments from other countries, as well as on the costs incurred from middlemen. In addition, it enables you to create smart contracts, which helps ensure the enforcement of business agreements, in turn preventing business conflicts. In summary, cryptocurrency use can help you provide better customer service and can give you a competitive advantage.

There are many platforms that will allow you to integrate cryptocurrency payments into your business. You just need to sign up for a merchant account at your chosen cryptocurrency wallet. However, the manner by which businesses use cryptocurrencies today tend to inconvenience users. The underlying issues can be easily improved, though, and this is what BCShop.io offers.

BCShop.io is an innovative platform for e-commerce and e-payments where one can offer products and services in exchange for cryptocurrencies: Ethereum and tokens. It also provides an easy-to-use interface so that even cryptocurrency newbies will have no difficulty learning about and using the platform.
