Moonstake raises $1.04 Million – accelerating connection from staking to DeFi

SINGAPORE, Oct 14, 2020 – (ACN Newswire) – Moonstake today announced that it has successfully closed its seed round funding and has raised over $1.04 Million (approximately JPY 110 Million). Partnerships with more than 10 public blockchains such as Emurgo (one of Cardano's constituent corporations) and advanced products centered on staking wallets attracted a great deal of attention, leading to this procurement six months since it was founded. This procurement was carried out with Singapore-based venture capital firm Ruby Capital as the lead investor and financial investors with domestic and overseas bases as business partners.





Since Moonstake was founded, Moonstake has sought to meet growing demand in Asia and globally by developing its own innovative staking protocols. Moonstake's product is a one-stop solution with staking capabilities that provides a gateway for users to facilitate their use of cryptocurrencies via web and mobile wallets (iOS/Android). Currently, Moonstake supports staking for ADA, Tezos, Cosmos, Ontology, QTUM, IRISnet, Harmon and further innovative products such as connection to DeFi via wallet will be developed in the future.

With this funding, Moonstake will step up its existing staking pool operations and wallet service offerings. In addition, while further expanding the products and services for businesses that we have been promoting, we will build a platform for decentralized finance (DeFi), which we have been connecting for some time, and a protocol for solving staking liquidity. We will promote innovative initiatives in the DeFi area with development.

Staking has been in full swing since 2019. Earlier this year, the market value of the staking market expanded 3.5 times in the 10 months from the beginning of the year, even in the single year of 2020, due to the PoS transition of well-known projects such as ADA and the start of staking.

Against this backdrop, Moonstake has been developing more user-focused staking products to create Asia's largest staking pool network. The number of users continued to grow due to active alliances with public blockchains and marketing cooperation, and in October, Moonstake's total staking amounted to over $50Million.

Panjun Wang, Partner at Ruby Capital says:
Moonstake has continued delivering recorded achievements in the crypto staking service industry, and Ruby Capital is excited to be part of its journey from Staking to Defi. We look forward to the joint-developments and bringing more values to the users of the Moonstake!

Moonstake’s total staking asset hits $50Million – Successfully achieved in two months from the start of full-scale service

SINGAPORE, Oct 6, 2020 – (ACN Newswire) – Today, Moonstake is pleased to announce that the total amount of staking in its staking pool has reached over $50 million. While steadily expanding toward the establishment of Asia's largest staking pool network, Cardano (ADA), which started full-scale service achieved staking support at an exceptional speed of two months.







Since Moonstake was founded, Moonstake has sought to meet growing demand in Asia and globally by developing its own innovative staking protocols. Moonstake's product is a one-stop solution with staking capabilities that provides a gateway for users to facilitate their use of cryptocurrencies via web and mobile wallets (iOS / Android). Currently, Moonstake supports staking for ADA, Tezos, Cosmos, Ontology, QTUM, IRISnet, Harmon and further innovative products such as connection to DeFi via wallet will be developed in the future.

Moonstake has promoted staking and active in the market for PoS projects through partnerships with public blockchain projects. Until now, Moonstake has partnered with 11 blockchain projects such as Cardano's constituent organization Emurgo, Ontology and NEO, which have the highest market capitalization of cryptocurrencies. By jointly expanding the staking ecosystem, Moonstake has taken various measures to deepen our understanding of the appeal of staking and the entire blockchain, and we are still running an ADA campaign for Japan users for now. More information about ADA Campaign: https://moonstake.io/ja/ada/

In addition, it has long advocated a connection to decentralized finance (DeFi), and announced a partnership with RAMP DeFi in August and Infinito in September with DeFi players. On October 1st, Moonstake Singapore was joined by Lawrence Lin, a former Huobi Global Business Head, as CEO, further accelerating the expansion of the staking-centric ecosystem.

Mitsuru Tezuka, Founder at Moonstake says:

"We are very pleased that the total value of Moonstake's staking pool asset has exceeded $50 Million. I think this is a manifestation of the expectations of many users for the staking market and PoS as well as proof that Moonstake's products are widely accepted in the market. With the introduction of ETH 2.0, I think the PoS market will continue to grow and over $50 million achievement is just a passing point to Moonstake and we are aiming for $100 million by the end of the year by providing the best solution for users around the world. Please stay tuned to Moonstake's products in the future."

OIO to launch blockchain consulting and development services in Indonesia

SINGAPORE, Oct 2, 2020 – (ACN Newswire) – SGX-listed OIO Holdings Limited ("OIO") is pleased to announce its entry into the Indonesian market with a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") with PT. Infiniti Teknologi Indonesia ("Infiniti").

Under the MOU, OIO will cooperate with Infiniti to support companies across various Indonesian industries planning to adopt blockchain-based technology in their business operations, with the aim of unlocking new growth areas and addressing operational inefficiencies. The MOU is effective for 2 years from 2 October 2020, unless mutually agreed between the parties for early termination or for further extension.

Background to the Partnership

OIO aims to be a leading provider of cost-effective and innovative solutions based on blockchain to further power the growth of enterprises in Asia. In partnership with Vietnam-based Infinity Blockchain Group ("IBG"), OIO currently markets consultancy and software development services for enterprises seeking to adopt easy-to-use and highly cost-effective blockchain solutions across numerous industries – such as, shipping, construction, logistics, and others. OIO's vision is to help our enterprise customers solve their real-world problems by providing them with appropriately customised blockchain solutions.

Being headquartered in Singapore, a leading global blockchain cluster, places OIO in a strategic position to access the growing demand for enterprise blockchain solutions. According to market intelligence firm International Data Corporation ("IDC"), the Asia-Pacific region accounts for approximately 19.3% of global blockchain spending. Even after accounting for COVID-19 related spending slowdowns, IDC expects blockchain spending to grow at a five-year Compound Annual Growth Rate of 55.3% for the Asia Pacific region (ex-Japan) and 57.1% worldwide – with global spend estimated to reach $14.4 billion by 2023[1].

Indonesia Market

Today, Indonesia is the world's fourth most populous nation, the 10th largest economy in terms of purchasing power parity, and a member of the G-20[2]. Strong macroeconomic fundamentals plus the growing number of both public and private sector blockchain projects in the country, have made Indonesia an attractive market for OIO to support with our customised solutions.

At the start of 2018, Bank Indonesia (BI) announced that it needs about two years to complete a study about the possibility of issuing a digital rupiah currency[3]. In August that year, the Indonesian Blockchain Association along with other organisations such as the Indonesia Chamber of Commerce and Creative Economy Agency, and Hara (a blockchain-based agritech startup) came together to launch Indonesia's first blockchain hub[4]. A year later, the Indonesian government's Creative Economy Agency also was reported to be using blockchain technology to protect artists' copyrights by helping musicians who have loaded their work to the database to track and monitor downloads and usage online, and calculate royalties due[5].

Historically, Indonesia has followed a democratic philosophy of strong regional autonomy. As such, each of the 33 provinces have their own unique features arising from provincial empowerment. This "administrative decentralisation" is also reflected in the differing standards, procedures, and IT systems between regions. This also means that service providers operating with centralised information systems will struggle to expand their services across the many differing regional standards and protocols[6].

While this feature of the Indonesian IT terrain may be an obstacle to traditional players in the tech industry, it is a boon for newer innovators who can leverage on blockchain's features that allows it to share data across multiple parties while keeping the database decentralised. OIO has recently identified potential project requirements from various industries in Indonesia, particularly in supply chain management across the many small islands in the country.

"We are thrilled to enter the Indonesian market with our partner PT. Infiniti Teknologi Indonesia. We believe we can leverage our experience and resources in the blockchain industry to help further propel the economic success story that is Indonesia today."
– Taku Edatsune, Head of Finance and Administration of OIO Holdings.

"We see the rise of potential needs for blockchain technology to solve the social and economic problems in Indonesia. Indonesia due to its diverse political and dispersed geographical nature, is best served by a decentralised technological solution. Hence our blockchain based collaboration with OIO."
– Syarifuddin Tanzil, Infiniti Teknologi Indonesia.

The OIO – PT. Infiniti Teknologi Indonesia Partnership

Through this partnership, OIO and Infiniti will market and execute blockchain-related consulting and software development services to enterprises in Indonesia, leveraging on OIO's reputation as a Singapore-listed company, IBG's software development resources, as well as Infiniti's local networks of enterprises in Indonesia.

The goal of the partnership is to promote greater implementation and adoption of blockchain solutions across industries in Indonesia, thereby resolving existing business and social issues by leveraging on the unique advantages accorded by blockchain.

USDT Trading Arrives on Bitcoin Global

LONDON, Sep 30, 2020 – (ACN Newswire) – Bitcoin Global continues its peer-to-peer trading platform. Following demand from customers, the company enables USDT support alongside Bitcoin. Tether's USDT is the most prominent stablecoin in the cryptocurrency industry today.

Introducing USDT Trading on Bitcoin Global

Bitcoin Global users can now gain access to a second major crypto asset. Alongside Bitcoin, users will be able to trade Tether's USDT. The prominent stablecoin has a market cap of over $14 billion and continues to dominate the cryptocurrency trading landscape. Its overall trading volume is more than 50% of Bitcoin's, and nearly three times that of Ethereum.

Giving users more options to trade affirms the company's outlook on crypto assets. Bitcoin is the world's leading cryptocurrency, and USDT is the world's leading stablecoin by market cap and trading volume. Offering both assets to customers will elevate Bitcoin Global position in the peer-to-peer trading industry. It also increases the worldwide appeal of this platform.

A new Breed of Peer-to-peer Trading

Bitcoin Global differentiates itself from other platforms by not requiring users to verify their identity. Adding a Know-Your-Customer (KYC) procedure is not beneficial when the platform in question never controls user funds. Connecting buyers and sellers is not the same as providing financial transactions.

Funds flowing through this platform are kept in escrow to protect both the buyer and seller. The funds will be unlocked once the seller confirms the recipient of the buyer's payment. During this procedure, there is no one who can access the funds, not even members of Bitcoin Global. Providing security and peace of mind are two aspects Bitcoin Global prides itself on.

Ongoing Developments to Drive Adoption

Introducing traders to USDT is the latest development for Bitcoin Global. This platform has seen many changes over the past few months, all of which are designed to make Bitcoin more accessible and appealing to users globally.

The introduction of price equations has been a game changer for the platform. This option ensures users looking to either buy or sell Bitcoin – and USDT starting next week – to actively maintain their advertisements. Price equations formulas will ensure the order price derives pricing information from different exchanges.

On the developer side of things, the recently launched API will automate advertisement management. The ever-changing value of Bitcoin warrants the use of different technologies to ensure one's advertisements will always remain competitive.

Last but not least, Bitcoin Global recently introduced support for Chinese and French translations of its platform. This brings the total number of supported languages to 4, as both English and Russian were already in place. More languages will be added in the future.

As such, the scale of technology adoption for business enterprises to transform their business models has never been more apparent than now.

Leveraging on the combined expertise and resources of both ADERA and BreadTalk Group, the technology collaboration aims to:

1. Develop digital tools that offer data analytics, enhance operational efficiency and data- driven decision methodology on issues such as inventory, payments, customer acquisitions and etc.
2. Create a scalable omni-channel platform to enhance outreach to customers via new sales channels, integrating operations, incorporating digital payments, facial recognition and designing a cohesive user experience for end-customers.
3. Establish a blockchain-based supply chain financing platform with digitalised processes and document automation so stakeholders can gain faster access to financing and potentially lower their costs of funding. With more accountability and transparency, it can foster greater trust and confidence between financing institutions and transacting parties, leading to lower financing and business risks.

Under the joint venture, ADERA will provide its knowhow, capabilities and experience in key areas such as digital automation, facial recognition, digital identity, digital payments and artificial intelligence, while BreadTalk Group will contribute its technical and operational experience.

With BreadTalk Group's established F&B business presence across 17 territories, it will provide significant opportunities for us to introduce and deploy our fintech and digital solutions to improve business operations and customers' engagement, leading to more proofs-of-concept and accelerating mainstream adoption of our technology innovations.
