IBM has taken its Blockchain World Wire (BWW) payment network out of beta this week.

IBM Takes Blockchain World Wire Out of Beta

IBM Takes Blockchain World Wire Out of BetaIBM has taken its Blockchain World Wire (BWW) payment network out of beta this week.

This development was made known in a post on IBM’s website. BWW, which makes use of digital currency on Stellar’s blockchain to facilitate foreign settlements between banks in “near real-time,” is the most recent step forward for IBM and Stellar, which have been considering blockchain payment options since October last year.

“The solution uses digital assets to settle transactions — serving as an agreed-upon store of value exchanged between parties — as well as integrating payment instruction messages,” a new summary of the platform relayed, explaining: “It all means funds can now be transferred at a fraction of the cost and time of traditional correspondent banking.

” IBM had collaborated with Stronghold, a Stellar-based asset, to make the Stellar network’s first stablecoin. “We see this as a way of bringing financial settlement into the transactional business network that we have been building,” the corporation’s vice president of global blockchain Jesse Lund quipped during that time.

The most recent move offers new competition for entities such as Ripple, which has had a contentious few months as executives express doubts over blockchain’s appeal to the banking sector.

While IBM claimed that blockchain could “revolutionize” the global financial system in an analysis released back in January, the firm nevertheless considered the idea of banks themselves becoming obsolete as “not likely.”

Smart Phone Coin Mining ~ MINE ELECTRONEUM FOR FREE ~

MINE ELECTRONEUM FOR FREE

Good day folks.

So many of you may know that crypto currencies like Bitcoin will become ubiquitous in our lives, just like the internet is ubiquitous in our life.

Electroneum is a brand new British cryptocurrency launched via an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) in September 14th 2017. Developed to be used in the mobile gaming markets, it will be the most user-friendly cryptocurrency in the world with wallet management and coin mining all possible on a mobile app.

Electroneum (ETN) is a cryptocurrency that can be mined with a smartphone, requiring almost no technical knowledge or prior experience. This sets it apart from other cryptocurrencies (like Bitcoin) which require expensive hardware and technical know-how to mine.

So this makes it possible to mine Electroneum for FREE from your android phone while running in the background of your smart phone. [IOS version coming soon]

The Android mining app [IOS soon to follow] has only been available since the 5th March 2018 so, as of writing this blog post, we are only 6 weeks into mining, if you could have started Bitcoin mining 6 weeks into launch would you have joined?

 

How to open a wallet & buy Electroneum?

  1. Register here to make an Electroneum wallet: OPEN A FREE WALLET
  2. Buy on Cryptopia and transfer ETN to your wallet which you opened above: BUY (ETN) HERE   Or Here

Is Electroneum worth it?

✓It has a single-minded development team behind it, with the clear goal to break into and dominate the mobile currency market

✓Electroneum is set to become the first digital coin to enter common usage due to its groundbreaking ease-of-use for the ordinary mobile user

✓Huge potential because of the 2.2 billion smartphone users around the globe

✓First cryptocurrency mining app in the world

✓Electroneum wallets can easily be managed on a smartphone, and the coins can be generated by the unique mobile miner running as a background activity

✓Maximum coin volume of 21 billion, which will mean transactions have only two decimal places and have a ‘real money’ feel that Bitcoin lacks

✓It enables very fast micro transactions and currency can be transferred between different apps, games and users

✓Electroneum relies on its own purpose-built blockchain, unlike many other currencies launched in 2017 so far

✓Offline Wallet (a completely secure, unhackable, offline wallet)

Is this not just so COOL?

Documents ICO Investors Often Overlook

The first thing blockchain enthusiasts engage with when they hear about a new blockchain startup is its landing page. Here, they should find links to all the important documentation that relates to the project, such as a white paper, a one pager, and a presentation.

[Note: This is a guest article submitted by Nick Evdokimov]


All of these are vital to a potential user or investor’s evaluation. A white paper should provide information on the token economy, the business model, and the team of a blockchain startup. Accordingly, the one pager should be a short “elevator pitch” that summarizes all the important aspects that the white paper covers at-length. Then we have a presentation, which is somewhere in between the two. This should provide investors, funds, and final token holders with an overview of the startup’s business and how the token is connected to it.

Legal Opinion

However, there are other aspects to take into consideration before making any ICO investment that are easy to forget. Perhaps the first of these is the legal opinion, which should be provided by the lawyers who have counseled the startup. They should inform potential investors on the token’s compliance with all the relevant regulations.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a utility token, or a security token, it’s important to have a document that confirms the legal stability of the business and the ICO itself. Besides investors, this legal opinion will also be requested by blockchain exchanges prior to any token listing.

Issuer Registry

Documentation on where the issuer of the token is registered is also necessary. This should be requested from the startup and analyzed carefully. For instance, if a token issuer is registered in the Singapore jurisdiction, it’s wise to check the registration numbers and make sure that the project is actually on this registry. It’s a good way to confirm the startup’s transparency and make sure it’s not a scam or a fraud.

Fund Arrangements

Another thing to search for is if a startup has signed agreements with funds for token sales. These might indicate that its business model is in good standing. A deal with a fund is particularly positive because they buy tokens in bulk and then participate in the life of a startup, helping to sell tokens and increase the user base.

Technical Documentation

Then, there is the technical aspect. The code of a startup’s smart contract is usually published on GitHub, along with a description and other accompanying documents. It’s good to have access to these links and review them with an expert if possible. This is a sign of transparency from a startup.

ICO

Community

Finally, a startup should provoke enough social media activity, especially during the ICO. Checking up on a project’s Telegram, Twitter, Facebook, or other communities gives investors information on what is happening with the startup’s team. Ideally, they should be engaging constantly through these platforms, answering questions and providing any extra information. Also, their accounts should have a healthy number of subscribers and followers.

These are all things any blockchain investor should look into instead of just skimming through a white paper. Any responsible startup would happily provide all this information to potential token holders and users, so nobody should hesitate to ask. One should always be thorough when doing research in the blockchain market.

“Isn’t Ripple only for banks? What can it do for our Treasury?”

tl;dr : Not all payments are created equal. Treasurers around the world feel the correspondent banking model inefficiencies, but the ones transacting in less liquid currencies suffer more. The adoption of Ripple’s solutions can result in lower fees and reduced risk, offering tremendous benefits to Corporate Treasuries. Certainty over settlements will also aid key treasury processes (e.g. more accurate cash forecasting) and can contribute to the overall stability of the business environment. The new payments technology landscape can open up new treasury operating models and reinforce the role of Treasury as a strategic partner to the business.

Intro

As a treasury & risk technology consultant, I am often asked about Ripple. “What can Ripple do for Corporate Treasury?”. “Is it only for banks? How would it fit in the current system architecture and our Treasury policy?”.
In this post, I will try to answer these questions and give some of my thoughts on the technology.

The (Treasury) world around payments, and Ripple

Even before the blockchain wave of interest (call me “hype”), payments have been in the spotlight for a few years. Technology innovation, new EU (PSD2) and UK (Open Banking) directives, as well as SWIFT’s gpi initiative, are stirring the waters, while some processes remain stuck in the previous century.

Despite the technological advances of the sector, if you are a Treasurer who wants to send a cross-border payment to or from a non-European country and your banking partner is not within the gpi network…you are in bad luck: Your payment will still need 2–3 (or more) business days to settle, the transfer will be costly, and during that time you will have virtually zero visibility of your funds’ tracks.

This happens due to a combination of the process architecture (correspondent banking), the limitations of the technology (unidirectional messaging) and a bad habit of some banks to add various fees along the way.
In a not uncommon scenario, that one payment will need to mobilise the ledgers of three or four banks. Your bank, your bank’s correspondent bank, the beneficiary’s bank and the beneficiary’ bank correspondent bank.

1-4oUzc2IobAgpmBdIEkEpMg

It is becoming clear that a distributed ledger solution would make the most sense here. If these three or four banks shared a common ledger, interbank reconciliation could be almost instant and the payment would settle immediately. In fact, the whole correspondent banking system could be placed into question as the business model would thoroughly change.

But let’s take things from the start:

What is Ripple offering?

Ripple offers three products:

  • xVia: A payments interface
  • xCurrent: A settlements solution for banks
  • xRapid: A liquidity solution

What is xVia doing for the Corporate Treasurer?

Have you used Alliance Lite 2 to track your company’s payments through SWIFT? (often, to find out that you need to pick-up the phone and call your bank to ask about that NACK message). Think of xVia as a connector to a payments network (RippleNet) which comes with an application similar to Alliance Lite 2 or to the new SWIFT gpi Tracker, adding features such as the ability to attach invoices and other rich data.

So, your TMS or ERP payments gateway would interface with xVIA’s API, sending instructions and receiving confirmations through RippleNet.

Ripple’s xVia [source: ripple.com]

Wait, you said “RippleNet”? That means we should connect our Treasury system to RippleNet instead of SWIFT?

It could connect to both, but that would probably be quite costly (paying subscriptions to keep both channels open). Using RippleNet as a Treasurer, you are limited to the network of banks signed with Ripple. While its size (~100 members) cannot be compared to the 11,000-members SWIFTnet, RippleNet has seen a very good growth with some of the world’s biggest banks (MUFG, Mizuho, Credit Agricole, Santander) connected to it. To be fair, RippleNet’s size is actually comparable to that of gpi (~160 banks, according to SWIFT). Moreover, RippleNet members can also be SWIFT members, so if your Treasury’s only or main banking partner is one of them, the migration to Ripple would probably cause no stress to your existing banking relationship.

What does xCurrent do for the Treasurer?

If you are a non-bank Corporate Treasurer interested in Ripple, xCurrent is not your worry. Not that it is a less important component. On the contrary, xCurrent is the solution which enables your banking partner to achieve near-instant settlement of payments, and thus benefiting your business. Let’s see in brief what happens between the banks:

1-yQTJcdTxy8wcxW66GoOcuw
“xCurrent is for banks” [source: ripple.com]

When a payment in xCurrent is initiated, banks exchange KYC/AML information. The screening completes in seconds through xCurrent bidirectional messaging. This eliminates a common bottleneck of the traditional payments system, where correspondent banks would sometimes require additional information as part of KYC/AML processes. Treasurers often find out that after initiating a USD cross-border payment (under the current model), the correspondent bank blocks the transfer, leaving everyone in the dark for at least one business day, until the back office provides assurances that the payment will not benefit sanctioned individuals or countries.
Following these checks in xCurrent, the transaction cost is calculated and the banks settle the payment instantly on ILP Ledger (Interledger Protocol Ledger), which is a subledger of each transacting bank’s general ledger.

xCurrent architecture [source: ripple.com]

Where does XRP (the digital asset) fit in this?

So, let’s imagine your TMS is connected to xVia. Payments along with invoices and other data are sent through the API, your banking partner settles the payment through xCurrent and the payment reaches the beneficiary’s bank.

**However, not all payments are created equal:
**

As we saw above, along the journey of the payment through xCurrent, there is an FX conversion stop. In case you are in the UK and you want to pay a supplier in a eurozone country, your bank feels comfortable that the market will be providing enough GBPEUR liquidity and that the FX quote they get will always be a very reasonable one. It could also be the case that your bank itself acts as a liquidity provider. As a corporate, you can expect lower fees and shorter processing times. Let’s call this, scenario A.

Now imagine a different scenario, let’s call it scenario B, where you are a Treasurer in the UAE (Group currency: AED) and your supplier is in Morocco. The payment should be made in Moroccan Dirham, MAD. Under the current SWIFT model, the friction would be enough to make any Treasurer..mad (pun intended): Your UAE Bank would send the payment to its correspondent bank, the correspondent bank would send it to the Moroccan Bank’s correspondent Bank and then it would reach the beneficiary’s account. Needless to say that the fees of four banks and the currency conversion spreads (possibly AEDUSD and MADUSD) would add significant cost. Add the likely KYC/AML delays during USD clearing and you have a perfectly inefficient process. Using xCurrent, your banks would alleviate the pain with shorter timeframes and guaranteed best FX execution, but the need to use multiple nostro accounts of illiquid currencies wouldn’t be eliminated.

Sadly enough, scenario B is the norm for many Treasuries around the world which are not in Europe or North America. Treasurers have either decided to swallow the exorbitant fees or have tried to mitigate the cost by maintaining subsidiaries accounts in countries where they have considerable business activity. The latter practice introduces additional FX risk for the Group, operational burden to manage the accounts and it has, of course, an adverse effect on the company’s liquidity.

Enter xRapid.

Ripple’s xRapid enables xCurrent members to use XRP (the cryptocurrency aka digital asset aka native token) as a bridge currency in order to settle payments. Under the scenario B above, this could happen in multiple ways:
1-eBFIGzJJMRI0M3EAtn5V9g

The simplest one (shown above) would require your UAE bank and your supplier’s Bank in Morocco to have pre-funded ILP accounts with XRP. As you send the payment, the bank converts your AED into XRP and settles the amount with your supplier’s bank in XRP. The Moroccan bank then converts the XRP into MAD and credits your supplier’s account. Alternatively, one or both banks wouldn’t need to maintain pre-funded XRP accounts but instead, they could request XRP liquidity on-demand from market makers.

In all cases, the need to maintain nostro/vostro accounts is eliminated. Capital is freed from sitting idle in correspondent bank accounts and as XRP transaction costs are minuscule (*), banking fees would be much lower.

To give you an idea about how minuscule the XRP costs are, please take a look at the posted transaction below, from May 24. The fee to transfer over 50 million XRP (> $30 million at that day’s market price) was 0.0000072 USD. Yes, you read well.

Where is the caveat?

Ripple has taken the lead in payments innovation. But it has also received some criticism, mainly because of XRP. Criticicm has come from inside the crypto-world, as a number of enthusiasts have claimed that the design of the XRP ledger is not doing a good service to the decentralized vision or the community; but criticicm has also come from the business world, with some commentators arguing that XRP will not serve its purpose and xRapid will not be used by banks.

Ripple’s vision with XRP is indeed a bold one. One can endlessly debate on the crypto-community’s decentralization concerns, but, on the business world, Ripple will have to overcome a number of regulatory obstacles. Is XRP a security or a commodity? Will banks hold XRP in order to use it for settlement of cross-border payments? If not, meaning that they will rely on liquidity providers, what will ensure the availability of the providers in times of stress? If banks fund own accounts with XRP, how will these assets be defined in the books and how risk will be measured in order to meet capital regulations?

This is a very interesting discussion but the analysis is beyond the scope of this post. Ripple has been engaging with regulators globally and has provided answers to the above questions. Regulators might also find out that Ripple’s solutions can make their task easier.

Nevertheless, a transparent cross-border payments solution which settles within a few seconds and which is ready to be deployed today, offering tremendous benefits to Corporate Treasuries, is very hard to be ignored.

Where are we now in terms of market adoption?

  • Santander launched a mobile app for cross-border payments which uses Ripple’s distributed ledger technology.
  • Western Union and Moneygram are testing Ripple’s technology for payments.

The above is just a sample. There is a growing number of companies who have disclosed that they are testing or even deploying Ripple’s solutions into production.

Is SWIFT doomed?

SWIFT has announced that it is testing blockchain for payments with mixed feelings. The gpi launch, which promises intraday settlements and transparency over fees and FX rates, has been a great success for a number of banks and their customers, but it remains a distant reality for the majority of financial institutions and Corporate Treasuries.

SWIFT is enjoying a dominant market position and, although quite costly at times, the current process is a far too familiar one for Treasurers to replace it with a new one. Ripple’s suite is ready and robust, but it needs the network effect to speed up market adoption and to establish itself. Until then, SWIFT has a — limited in my opinion — time window to reassess its strategy.

What should the Corporate Treasurer do?

As with every period of rapid innovation advancements, there are only two choices: Treasurers can either adopt a wait-and-see stance or take an active approach and dip a toe in the blockchain ocean.

In case they choose to be actively involved, Corporate Treasuries can connect their TMS or ERP payments gateways with xVia and start processing payments through RippleNet. If your main banking partner is a member of RippleNet, it is definitely worth discussing with them on the viability of switching. As shown in the below diagram, a case study should take into consideration a number of factors such the destination of your usual/regular vendor payments, the appetite to disrupt existing banking relationships, etc. After all, when the disruption game is over, Corporate Treasuries will be the ultimate winners, enjoying lower payments costs and better visibility of their funds.

Conclusion or…“Do we really need instant payments?”

This is something that comes up quite a lot: “Treasuries will be more than fine with end-of-day settlements. Instant payments will not add any real advantage to the current processes and policies of many Corporate Treasuries”.

Despite being a legitimate argument, it can easily be contested:

First, we are still very far from even considering end-of-day settlements as the norm.

Second, the eliminated settlement risk and the certainty over fees and processing times, will contribute to a more stable business environment. Treasuries will be able to allocate freed liquidity in more efficient ways and cash forecasting will become more accurate.

But, the noteworthy keyword in the above question is “current”. As technology evolves, Treasury processes adapt in order to make the most of the advancements. How much easier was Hedge Management made since robust TMS’s included this functionality? And on the other side, how many TMS projects have disappointed because of the fact that the business processes were not properly redesigned or evaluated before the implementation?

Having the ability to settle cross-border payments instantly, with much lower risk and significantly reduced cost will open up the potential of new business processes and operating models and will reinforce the role of modern Treasury as a strategic partner to the business.

Could that lead to a new in-house bank operating model in the future? Possibly, but this is for the next post.

CPS Coin Update and Information

CPS Coin has proven to be a bigger success than anticipated amongst our merchants and our community. Since the end of the airdrop and release of the coins on July 1st, 2018, CoinPayments has seen over 4,000 transactions made with CPS coin, resulting in thousands of dollars in fees saved by our users! CPS Coin was also used to purchase over 1,800 $PayByName subscriptions.

Now that the initial stages of the launch are complete, the real work has begun to further develop partnerships and build out the functionality of CPS Coin on the CoinPayments platform. Presently, CoinPayments offers the following uses for CPS Coin:

  1. Payment Processing Fee Rebate: As long as you have any balance of CPS Coin in your account, you can qualify for a 50% rebate of all payment processing fees (payable in CPS Coin). To enable this feature on your account, make sure to check the box in your Account Settings

To enable this feature, make sure to check the box in your Account Settings.
    Enable 2x Affiliate Commisions (Paid in CPS Coin)
  3. Staking Rewards: By staking your CPS Coins, you will earn 25% annually on the balance of CPS Coins staked. Staking rewards are paid on the 1st of each month and to qualify, you need to have your staked coins Vaulted for the entire prior month. Vaulting is a security feature offered by CoinPayments that locks your coins for a set amount of time before allowing access to them after unlocking/unvaulting them. To enable the Vaulting feature and qualify for the CPS Coin staking rewards, go through the Vaulting process from the CPS Options button on the wallets page.
    Use the Lock in Vault Feature
    Set the Time Lock for the Vault Feature
  4. ICO Participation: CoinPayments works with many companies looking to launch their ICO and use CoinPayments to accept payments in many of the coins we support – including CPS Coin. You can use your CPS Coin to participate in select ICOs hosted by CoinPayments. Currently you can use CPS Coins to participate in the ShelterDAO ICO via our CPSICOs Marketplace or you can participate in the SecurCoin ICO directly from the dashboard wallets page.
    Use CPS Coin to Participate in the Securcoin ICO
  5. Coin Hosting: If you are part of the core team of a new coin looking to increase adoption through being added to the CoinPayments platform, then our Coin Hosting Solution is an ideal strategy and requires CPS Coin to pay the deposit. Being added to the CoinPayments platform allows businesses to start accepting your coin via any of our prebuilt plugins and integrations for all the major ecommerce platforms, instead of you having to code your own!
  6. $PayByName Purchase$PayByName is a unique tag/identifier linked to your CoinPayments account, allowing you to receive payments from all supported coins by having them sent to your $PayByName instead of different wallet addresses. $PayByNames can be registered through the dashboard and only cost $1.99 per year!

While it’s clear that we at CoinPayments have been hard at work creating the above current uses of CPS Coin, there is still a lot to come as we are not even 1 month into the release of the coin! For a quick summary of the plans for CPS Coin, take a look at the explainer video below or visit the Official CPS Coin Website for full details.

How to Buy CPS Coin?

If you’re interested in taking advantage of the current and future benefits and uses of CPS Coin, we sell the coin directly from the CoinPayments dashboard at a fixed rate of €0.10 per CPS Coin (plus any ongoing promotions). All you need to do is load your CoinPayments account with any select supported coins and then convert them into CPS Coin. Read the step by step tutorial on How to Buy CPS Coins for more details.

CPS Coin Relationship to Syscoin

CPS Coin is closely tied to Syscoin because it is the first asset built on top of the Syscoin blockchain. What exactly does that mean? Well, just like ERC20 tokens exist on the Ethereum blockchain and require ETH to pay gas when transacting, there is a similar setup for CPS Coin. CPS Coin is an asset/token built on the Syscoin blockchain and requires a small amount of SYS to pay transaction fees. So, if you want to send CPS Coin, make sure you have a bit of SYS in your CoinPayments account to cover the sending fees. Alternatively, you can send CPS Coin to a $PayByName and there will be NO SYS required for fees. Read a more in-depth explanation on how to store, send and receive Syscoin assets within the Syscoin ecosystem.

NOTE: The SYS Asset ID for CPS Coin is: 777845ced7b6022b

CPS Coin Community

We are so thankful for the community surrounding both CoinPayments and CPS Coin and we could not have gotten to where we are without you all! So, we want to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you!

Amongst the many active voices of our community, one stands out in particular – a member by the name of Bruce Bates, who reminds us how one person can make a world of difference! CoinPayments wishes to extend our sincerest gratitude to Bruce for his relentless work toward educating our users within the CPS Coin Official Telegram Channel, where he answers the question “how do I convert my CPS Coins?” at least 10 times a day!
