Rise in Cryptocurrency and Exchanges like IBGX.

SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE, August 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The number of cryptocurrencies and exchange platforms are increasing each year. Demand to buy and sell is also growing as the number of cryptocurrencies and trading platforms increase.

There are currently 1,568 different cryptocurrencies available, as at 21st March, 2018. This breaks down to 654 tokens and 914 coins. It all started with bitcoin, which was first released on January 9, 2009, and various versions launched in the following years. From December 2013 to the end of 2017, the number of cryptocurrencies increased from 40 to 1,273 – a 3,083% increase.

The number of transactions on the blockchain have dramatically increased over time.

On August 8, 2015, Ethereum made its way onto the world map. They have recorded 2,881 transactions and has been growing in popularity ever since.

Since cryptocurrency first launched in 2009 with Bitcoin, average trade values – the average of all cryptocurrency trades processed per day – of all cryptocurrencies have rapidly grown over a period defined by high volatility. The two biggest cryptocurrencies on the market, Bitcoin and Ethereum, have fluctuated in average trade value with steady growth over a seven-year period since Ethereum entered the market.

Along with these cryptocurrencies, new platforms and exchanges emerge, solely catering to the trading of tokens and coins. Coinbase, Binance, eToro and others joust for attention from traders and now a new cryptocurrency exchange by the name of IBGX has emerged through the list of service providers to offer safe, efficient, and easy trading, while charging minimal fees for each transaction. Now in its final testing stage, and set to launch in Q3 2018, it seems like it will be achieving a good response based on early review of its working interface. IBGX is based in Indonesia and is expected to have servers located globally, especially in locations where cryptocurrency trading has proven to be very popular and widely accepted.

EDGE MOBILE PAYMENTS ANNOUNCES NFC RING AND PATENT APPLICATION FILING

Edge Mobile Payments, LLC today announced that it will be adding an NFC ring payment device to its product line.

Beyond making and selling our own Edge NFC rings, we’re also launching our private label and IP licensing division, aimed at developing new B2B partnerships and new sales channels”

— Paz Rheinstein, President of Edge

SAN FRANCISCO , CA, UNITED STATES, August 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Aug 16, 2018. Edge Mobile Payments, LLC ("Edge"), a San Francisco based Fintech startup today announced that it will be adding an NFC ring payment device to its product line. The ring is supported by a patent application, originating from its recently-acquired Nexus IP assets and is positioned to be one of the earliest in the NFC wearable payments space. This patent application is one of several divisional filings tying back to the Nexus 2005 patent portfolio relating to wearables. Edge will be applying for additional divisional patents in the months to come, positioning Edge as a leader in wearable NFC payment intellectual property.

The Edge Ring:
• Will extend the reach of Edge’s Digital Banking Platform
• Will enable contactless NFC payments
• Will accelerate growth in the wearables payments market: Worldwide shipments of wearable devices will reach 132.9 million this year. Shipments will total 219.4 million in 2022, for a 13.4% average annual growth rate, according to IDC.

The Edge Ring is a newly filed US Divisional Patent Application, Serial Number 15/985,225 which claims priority to the first Nexus Payments Cloud Wallet Patent Portfolio filed on February 2nd, 2005. “This patent application contains significant claims for wearable payment technology supported by disclosures made in our Nexus Portfolio. Our 2005 priority date is significantly earlier than other patents currently being licensed in this area.”, said Mark Boys VP of Intellectual Property for Edge.

The Edge Ring will be added to Edge’s growing body of payment devices designed to give consumers a commerce experience that fits their lifestyle. “The ring represents a new form factor that will make NFC payments possible even when a consumer is without their smartphone. Our goal is to build out a comprehensive digital banking platform with multiple connected payment devices that will give our customers options for how they make payments and how they interact with their finances – making transactions easy, fast and safe.”, said Peter Garrett, CEO of Edge.

The Edge Ring is a feature-rich product that will support a diversity of applications including payments, reward programs and multi-factor authentication.

Solar Ship and Loonify Space Announce Strategic Partnership to Develop a Scalable Microsatellite Launch System

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, August 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, Solar Ship and Loonify Space announced a partnership for developing a rockoon (rocket + balloon) launch platform, offering flexible, affordable, and reliable launch services tailored to microsatellite operators.

Combining Solar Ship’s innovative airship technology and extensive balloon launch experience with Loonify Space’s lightweight rocket design and proprietary navigation algorithms will substantially lower launch costs while accelerating technology development. Satellite launches will therefore become accessible to a wide range of customers and industries. This will expand the number of viable space-based services in Canada with vital applications such as providing satellite internet services to remote communities and conducting environmental monitoring by remote sensing.

Since the late 90’s, the use of microsatellites for earth observation, environmental surveillance, and global communications has grown rapidly, with market for launch services valued at over $1B. Facing high costs (>$50,000 per kg), microsatellite operators piggyback on launches of large spacecraft, forcing them to endure year-long wait times and strict mission constraints imposed by the main payload.

With the development of a novel rockoon launch platform, Loonify Space and Solar Ship aim to significantly reduce launch wait times and costs, providing microsatellite operators with flexibility and control previously only available to big players. Loonify Space and Solar Ship will collaborate to conduct a series of test flights, culminating with an orbital launch. The two companies aim to work with constellation operators, remote communities, and government, at all levels to share data, intelligence, and ideas to work towards the development of reliable, low-cost communication for remote areas.

Loonify’s CEO, Sohrab Haghighat: “Solar Ship has been working with us to develop the balloon technology and operation techniques needed for our launch platform. They are world leaders in airship and balloon innovation and they have great experience in all facets of the business. They have a compelling corporate mission and we share similar values to innovate and use technology to solve problems in the world.”

Solar Ship’s CEO, Jay Godsall: “I knew the first time I met Sohrab he was going to change the world. His team is creating an exciting breakthrough in space launch technology and our teams complement each other well and share the same values. We are excited about what this technology can do for the microsatellite community. Loonify’s technology would provide microsatellite operators with on-demand and affordable access to low earth orbit. This would significantly benefit remote areas around the world, from the Arctic to Africa, for applications in addressing climate change, global connectivity, and threats of war. This is extremely motivating for our team and our community.”

ABOUT SOLAR SHIP
Solar Ship Inc. is a Canadian company with its head office in Toronto and operations in Brantford, Ontario, South Africa, Uganda and Zambia. Solar Ship develops hybrid aircraft and aerostats to service remote areas. The aircraft uses two forms of lift: static lift, generated by buoyant gas like an airship, combined with the aerodynamic lift of a bush plane. This creates the capacity to fly large loads into areas without infrastructure and it enables the aircraft to fly without the use of fossil fuels. Aerostats use similar materials as the aircraft and do not use fossil fuels. They provide low cost, solar powered internet connectivity in remote areas.

ABOUT LOONIFY
Loonify Space Inc. is a Toronto-based space launch company currently developing a launch platform to offer on-demand launch services to microsatellite operators. Loonify’s solution is based on launching a custom-designed rocket, tailored to the payload, in near vacuum condition and avoiding high speed travel through the dense layers of the atmosphere. This approach allows Loonify Space to maximize efficiency, reduce costs, and offset environmental impact of the launch, especially within the lower layers of the atmosphere.

The cruise industry is flourishing, what’s not to love?

Lee Clarke of Dynama takes a closer look at the stresses and strains of managing a fast growth cruise company and the implications for workforce management

By tapping into the potential of automation and working with the right technology partner, you’ll create a solid foundation for success to embrace the opportunities of the flourishing cruise industry.”

— Lee Clarke, Regional Director, Northern Hemisphere at Dynama

LONDON, UK, August 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The cruise industry is big business with the number of new entrants and competition rising annually. Latest predictions show that the sector will attract 40 million passengers by 2027 and generate gross revenues of around US$60 billion. The order book is also at an all-time high with 106 new cruise ships expected to be built in the next 10 years.[i] This is excellent news for ambitious cruise companies seeking to tap into new markets. However, with opportunities come a new set of challenges as cruise ships of all size, from the largest luxury liners to the latest more intimate river voyages, compete to attract and retain the best crew and deliver exceptional levels of guest satisfaction.

Five Challenges for growing cruise companies
The cruise industry is very much a people business, inside and out from crew to the passengers they serve. Therefore, choosing the right technology to help manage those people and overcome challenges is essential.

Challenges include:

1) Constant competition – a growing industry means increased competition as existing and new entrants step up their efforts to deliver outstanding service levels to passengers then lure them back for more. Having the right crew in place at the right time is fundamental to passenger satisfaction.
2) How to scale the business without escalating costs – the heat is on to add new crew and ships without costs spiralling out of control and to continue hitting margins. Make flexibility and scalability your new best friends.
3) Eliminating stress through time and cost efficiencies – relying on a disconnected set of manual processes or cumbersome Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems that are too generic or expensive to configure is no longer sufficient. It’s time to ditch the spreadsheets and embrace the benefits of automation to avoid wasted duplicated effort. Why not make life easier for your IT department?
4) Crew and passenger safety – with many more people on board, it’s time to ensure your safety measures are in tip-top condition and meet strict regulatory requirements. This information should be available at the touch of a button.
5) Data security – now that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is here, take steps to avoid costly fines and keep crew and passenger data safe. GDPR isn’t just about finding data and making sure it is secure, it’s about capturing the context of that data and being able to prove that everything is being done to protect your crew and passengers’ personal information at all times.

Get ready for success with the latest workforce management (WFM) solutions
In the rapidly expanding cruise industry, it makes sense to partner with the right technology provider. The most innovative solutions will have automation built into their DNA to help maximize crew talents, make tangible time and cost savings, enhance all-round safety and scale effortlessly as your business grows.

Choose a partner that can provide:
• Automation – when it comes to managing entire fleets of cruise ships manned by thousands of crew around the world, automation is essential. The beauty of modern integrated systems is they capture, in real-time, important information about crew members and activities, the ship they work on and their skills as well as important travel documents like passports and visas – to develop efficient schedules and guarantee the most appropriately skilled and available crew members are in the right place at the right time. This keeps you one step ahead of the competition when it comes to delivering a first-class passenger service

• Flexibility and scalability – the latest automated solutions are innovative, highly scalable and future-proof. They are sophisticated enough to analyse current resource competencies and model for future requirements quickly and efficiently. The can be used to quickly clone existing vessels and positions, making it easy to add new builds to the fleet and manage the wave of new crew required to ensure your expansion doesn’t jeopardise quality

• Managed services – make life easier for the people behind the scenes. Many cruise organizations’ IT departments are often stretched to the hilt with a limited headcount and an equally limited budget that necessitates a ‘do more with less’ culture. Outsourcing your workforce management software to a reliable partner with the bandwidth and know-how to make technology work for you will free up your own internal IT resources to focus on more strategic areas, improve response times, cut down on recruitment and training costs, eliminate expensive upgrade costs and guarantee regular maintenance of your WFM system

• Onboard safety – easy access to critical data facilitates the ability to manage a multi-skilled and often geographically dispersed workforce over time, rank and experience. In addition to vessel familiarity, training requirements and licenses held. This clear visibility of crew compliance and assets ensures standards meet stringent International Maritime Organization (IMO) regulations and minimise the risk of financial penalties through non-compliance of safety legislation

• GDPR readiness – these days, data security is just as important as keeping your crew and passengers physically safe and cruise lines control a lot of personal data – from passengers’ identities, preferences and health requirements to cross-border tax and immigration laws for large workforces.

Fortunately, the latest workforce management solutions can help in various ways. They link seamlessly to your organization’s Active Directory to guarantee the security of all login credentials, the crucial first step to securing crew and passengers’ details. Customer screens can be set up to ring-fence any sensitive data that passengers choose to store with you such as credit card details.

Finally, superior reporting capabilities make it easy to respond quickly and accurately to requests for information from GDPR assessors and provide a valuable audit trail with the hard evidence to aid compliance with GDPR legislation.

It’s time to take control and embrace the challenges and opportunities of today’s flourishing cruise industry. By tapping into the full potential of automation and working with the right technology partner, you’ll create a solid foundation for success.
