DNotes has announced that its upcoming DNotes 2.0 upgrade will include innovative features and applications relating to smart contracts, blockchain technologies, mobile applications, and global payments systems. The upgrade is expected to launch later in 2017, and the company is unveiling a new Bitcointalk Forum in preparation for the event.

According to DNotes Co-Founder, Alan Yong, his team began expanding the company’s focus to include innovative technological development roughly one year ago. As Yong explains:

“The technology in our industry was primitive when we first entered – with many unresolved problems and uncertainty about consumer preferences. As a result, we spent our first three years positioning ourselves for success by building our core infrastructure and supporting business ecosystem while the industry matured, as we waited for the optimal time to build on the code-base that blockchain technology offers. That time is now, and the DNotes team is totally committed to promoting our industry through technological leadership that will pave the way to mass acceptance of peer-to-peer digital cash in global commerce.”

The DNotes 2.0 platform will reportedly represent a significant upgrade from DNotes as it now exists. After extensive research and consideration, the DNotes team decided to switch from Proof-Of-Work (POW) to Proof-Of-Stake (POS). The new blockchain system will be accompanied by positive changes in the company’s CRISP program, and will reward stakeholders monthly with an annual target of approximately 2% on balances held in qualified accounts for 30 days or more to encourage long-term investment and savings.

There will be an additional stake reward, with a target of 2% annually, paid to stakeholders who participate in “staking” to support the network. The new reward system will be the backbone of the new CRISP 2.0 savings plans.

The upgrade to DNotes 2.0 will also involve a one-for-one (1:1) coin swap, with details about that swap to be announced closer to the upgrade’s launch. The DNotesVault will have a major role to play in simplifying the conversion process, according to Yong. The launch of the company’s new Bitcointalk Forum is designed to enable DNotes to reach out to as many of its stakeholders as possible, while also inviting the public to join in the conversation.

One of the most critical choices the company has made is the decision to develop its platform on C#, rather than the C++ Bitcoin Core source code. Yong describes the decision as the direct result of his belief that mass acceptance of digital currency can only be attained by focusing on businesses and other consumers. As he notes,

“We are committed to a vision of 100% conversion to C# – giving us the advantage of knowing our own technologies and applications intimately well. This will put us in a position of great technological leadership, particularly when it comes to the blockchain and smart contract applications that are currently in great demand. C# is popular in the corporate environment, and is easier to develop and maintain when compared to the traditional C++ Bitcoin Core source code. It is expected that C# architecture will become a more popular platform in the future. Stratis is one such coin that has active development on C#, and we appreciate their leadership and contributions to our industry.”

DNotes has a history of taking a different path than most other digital currency offerings. The company has been vocal about its founders’ desire to build a trusted digital currency that is accessible to people of all walks of life, with an ease-of-use that encourages its widespread acceptance.

The company’s strategic planning has created an ecosystem made up of many innovative building blocks. Those building blocks include CryptoMoms – a currency neutral site dedicated to encouraging female participation; DNotesVault – a free secure storage for DNotes’ stakeholders with 100% of its deposits guaranteed with verifiable funds; DCEBrief – a news and information media outlet that delivers news on the latest developments in the world of digital currency; and CRISPs – a family of Cryptocurrency Investment Savings Plans for people around the globe. CRISP’s core mission is to make the savings opportunity available to everyone. Yong believes that access to savings opportunities can bring greater financial freedom to millions.

In addition, Mr. Yong has written a business book, “Improve Your Odds – The Four Pillars of Business Success”, which is designed to help any entrepreneur looking to maximize his or her chance of business success by employing proven business principles.

Today, DNotes is already well-entrenched in innovative technology development designed to contribute to rapid growth in the cryptocurrency industry. According to Yong, the company’s commitment to develop on C# will allow it to be the most innovative, responsive, and efficient in serving increasing demand from businesses and consumers alike.

Newcomer Finantick launches a new version of its binary brokerage platform, now offering a new user interface, messaging and pop up system, as well as direct integrations to the largest affiliate systems.

The company, which was largely unknown outside of closed circles, edged into the market by providing a niche and boutique approach to the provision of binary options platforms and now also offers forex trading as well. While many of its competitors boast large-scale marketing and sales teams, Finantick doesn’t seem to be anywhere to be found. Nonetheless, in its two years, it has racked up a seemingly large number of clientele, 32 active brokerages to be exact. This is rather impressive for a binary platform system that has come out of nowhere.

In this space, where brokers don’t ordinarily jump ship from the providers they work with, it is quite interesting to see that a relatively new platform provider has been able to carve a niche in this very tight market where competition has driven down both the number of brokers actively seeking such solutions as well as the royalties.

It is also well known that the industry is suffering from a serious PR problem of late making their rise all the more note worthy. So where does a company like this, well off on the fringe of this industry, find clients? According to the company’s CEO:

“customers are simply coming to Finantick when they’ve been left behind by the larger platforms. The big guys seem to just want the million dollar plus brokerages. Well, what are you going to do? Not every brokerage is going to get there. It is our job, as a platform provider to be there when no one else will. And we’ve done that rather well.

Providing support, time, even finding and integrating affiliates and their software just so we can be the platform that got it done for the client. I guess that’s the missing element today. Just doing whatever it takes. You can even look at the advent of crypto currencies and how nearly no platform has provided funding and BTC based accounts… yet we have and it’s working phenomenally”

The company doesn’t believe that binary is over either. On the contrary, it’s actually taking steps to widen the offering and make it more amenable to the regulators by simply making the platform a tighter and less manipulative environment. We obviously commend Finantick for this much needed face lift for the industry. However, it is clear that binary is not at its peak and probably wont reach the levels seen in previous years again.

So what’s the future? According to the company, a mix of very sleek binary options user interface coupled with a simple and easy trading method for forex trading is the future. Forex trading has and will be a very lucrative market and Finantick is making a forway into this space as well. A fresh approach… let’s wait and see.

About Finantick

Finantick is a binary and forex platform developer. Since inception in 2015, the company has been striving to create a better and more robust offering in this very competitive field. With many choices in platforms, Finantick has wedged itself in amongst giants with a firmer grip on the ins and outs of the brokers’ needs. With over 30 brokerages now, Finantick can truly be seen as a viable competitor in the market.

(Shanghai, May 21, 2017)-Singapore-based blockchain service provider VeChain S.E.A, a subsidiary of the leading blockchain technology company in China, BitSE, is proud to announce it will join PwC’s incubation program.

PwC and BitSE held a signing ceremony on Monday in Hong Kong with Raymund Chao, PwC Greater China Chairman, and DJ Qian, CEO of BitSE and VeChain, to make the agreement official. A second signing ceremony was held in Singapore on May 17 with Mr. Qian and Yeoh Oon Jin, PwC Singapore’s Executive Chairman.

“In the journey of a joint business relationship between PwC and BitSE, we are delighted to achieve this significant milestone together with PwC. VeChain S.E.A, a subsidiary of BitSE, will focus on accelerating VeChain business expansion in Southeast Asia,” said DJ Qian, a former IBM executive who left the multinational technology firm in 2013 to join the blockchain industry. “Besides technology, industry know-how and market experiences are equally important to apply blockchain technology. We share the same vision with PwC to improve the efficiency and lower the cost of trust in supply chain management. I believe this in-depth cooperation will definitely accelerate the transformation of supply chain management.”

VeChain, which launched in November 2016, is an enterprise software designed to create, manage, maintain and update shared data about products in the supply chain. VeChain is a state-of-the-art collaboration platform, making the supply chain more transparent and solving important problems that exist in the modern supply chain. So far, this platform has already been adopted by several established companies as part of their production system in industries such as luxury, fashion, logistics, pharmaceuticals, automotive, food safety, and wine and spirits.

PwC’s incubator program will help VeChain accelerate its deployment in Hong Kong and South East Asia, as well as offer the blockchain startup strategic advice. PwC will also provide more resources, industry know-how and blockchain research to improve the design of VeChain and solve even more problems than the platform already does while expanding into more industries and onboarding more clients.

“Embracing advanced technology for growth becomes the top priority for many business sectors,” says Mr. Chao. “Innovative applications and solutions could improve the effectiveness of supply chain, brand reputation, and even customer experience. We are excited about the joint initiative between PwC and BitSE and the VeChain services we provide that could help our clients achieve greater success. I envisage our services will create an impact and deliver on our firm’s purpose of building trust in society and solve important problems.”

Mr. Oon Jin added: “Disruption is here to stay in our current volatile business environment and it brings both opportunities and challenges. We firmly believe that it is through embracing disruptive change that allows innovation to flourish. This is an exciting milestone for us, and we are confident that together with VeChain we will bring more value to the marketplace through collaborative innovation.”

PwC’s global network features more than 223,000 professionals across industries. BitSE’s more than 70 employees worldwide and over 50 professional blockchain application developers make it one of the largest blockchain-focused startups. The two companies partnered one year ago to promote blockchain adoption in Asia and around the world.
