BlockQuake™ Exchange Launches Globally

The regulatory-driven digital asset exchange aims to be the industry gold standard in security and global regulatory compliance.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — BlockQuake™ announced the official launch of its regulatory-driven digital asset exchange. The BlockQuake™ Exchange, which is now accessible worldwide, aims to set the industry gold standard in global regulatory compliance and security for digital asset trading platforms. Created by a team with over 100 years of collective experience in blue-chip financial services, the BlockQuake™ Exchange sets itself apart by aiming to give users the security, transparency, and a variety of order options existing in trading in traditional financial markets.

"As more people than ever enter the cryptocurrency space, there is an increasing demand to address issues in security and choice that many traders face," said Antonio Brasse, CEO and Co-Founder of BlockQuake™. "Using our team’s deep breadth of experience as traders in both cryptocurrency and traditional financial markets, we created a unique platform that gives anyone, from the first-time individual investor to a top-tier financial institution, a better trading experience and the ability to trade digital assets in a safe and regulated way."

The BlockQuake™ Exchange aims to be a true "one-stop-shop" that eliminates the need for traders to open accounts across multiple platforms by soon permitting a wider variety of order types and currency options. Open to both institutions and individuals, the BlockQuake™ Exchange supports corporate entities, trusts, and retirement accounts.

Initially, the BlockQuake™ Exchange will offer USD and major cryptocurrencies and stable coins that include BTC, ETH, LTC, and USDT. BlockQuake™ plans to scale by continuously onboarding fiat currencies, cryptocurrencies, and stable coins to accommodate over 100 pairings within four months. Subsequent crypto additions include USDC, LINK, BCH, XLM, ETC, BAT, TUSD, and PAX, and fiat additions include CAD, EUR, GBP, AUD, and JPY.

Traders from around the globe can use their credit or debit cards, wire transfer, and ACH to deposit funds into the exchange, and the integration of Plaid further simplifies this process for US customers using ACH.

The BlockQuake™ Exchange is forward-thinking on domestic and international regulations. BlockQuake™ has applied for a New York State BitLicense and has registered with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), a requirement for the BitLicense and companies serving US Customers. It will also be pursuing SEC and CFTC registrations and licenses and is actively seeking to address compliance with FATCA, FATF, and other international regulations.

The BlockQuake™ Exchange has institutional-grade platform security which offers app-based 2FA for logins and mandates 2FA for withdrawals. The platform differentiates itself through its partnerships with companies that have extensive experience and expertise in their fields, making the exchange secure and allowing it to maintain a high level of self-regulation. Through qualified custodian Prime Trust, all users go through a rigorous verification process which includes a Know Your Customer ("KYC") verification in compliance with banking and securities laws, Anti-Money Laundering ("AML") checks on domestic and international persons in compliance with the PATRIOT Act and Treasury regulations.

BlockQuake uses Prime Trust to custody fiat deposits and the Fireblocks institutional-grade Hot Vault for crypto storage, which further reduces the risk of fraud and ensures user assets are protected. Chainalysis, the gold standard in transaction monitoring for cryptocurrency, provides real-time Know Your Transaction (“KYT”) monitoring, and Solidus Labs will proactively detect and investigate manipulation and compliance threats, allowing BlockQuake™ to ensure all trading activity on its platform is legitimate and maintain the integrity of its markets.

Friedman CyZen ("CyZen") will employ automated and human safeguards to help protect BlockQuake™ Exchange from cyber risks, such as security breaches, by performing various services such as continual security log auditing, penetration tests, cybersecurity control, processing audits, and compliance consulting. BlockQuake™ recently passed a penetration test performed by CyZen which did not identify critical vulnerabilities or cybersecurity issues ripe for exploitation.

When trading on the BlockQuake™ Exchange, users will have access to various investor order types–including market, stop, limit, and time in force options. Every transaction is subject to a low flat trading fee of 0.2%. BlockQuake™ has engineered its matching engine to handle more than 10,000,000 transactions per second and has proactively planned to scale to accommodate peak trading volume and reduce downtime.

Secure Digital Markets ("SDM") and Blockfills, both top global liquidity providers, will provide Global Liquidity to the BlockQuake™ Exchange upon launch. This partnership allows BlockQuake™ to scale while maintaining liquidity. BlockQuake™ traders receive consistent and accurate market prices and a single point-of-entry, combating disjointed liquidity and discrepancies in pricing data. Through these market making partnerships, BlockQuake will be able to handle any order size immediately.

About The BlockQuake™ Team
BlockQuake's™ accomplished team includes internal and external subject matter experts in FinTech, regulatory finance, investment banking, blockchain, and risk management and a robust understanding of both the finance and crypto industries. Previously, they have worked for global financial organizations including AIG, Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan, Citi, Chase, BlackRock, BNP Paribas, and Barclays Capital and have provided services for top-tier clients including Nasdaq, Fidelity, TD Ameritrade, IBM, and Google. They now draw upon these decades of experience in financial services to deliver solutions that address trader frustrations in the current cryptocurrency landscape and create a better cryptocurrency trading experience. BlockQuake™ also offers its own token, QuakeCoin™ (QUAKE), an ST-20 token built on the Polymath platform that will only be available on its exchange. Some trading restrictions for The BlockQuake Exchange™ may apply based on a trader’s jurisdiction of residence.

World-wide Size And Share Breakdown Of The Computer Hardware Market By The Global Market Model

Computer Hardware Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact And Recovery To 2030

Computer Hardware Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact And Recovery To 2030

The Business Research Company’s Computer Hardware Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact and Recovery to 2030

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, July 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The computer hardware market has rebounded strongly from the effect of COVID, driven in particular by sales of equipment to people working from home. The market is led by North America, which leads both in terms of the size of the market and per capita expenditure.

Revenues from the sale of computer hardware were estimated at around $850 billion in 2020, a significant decline from 2019. They are expected to bounce back to around 950 billion in 2021. The decline in the market was due to supply chain issues and demand dips in the early period of the COVID-19 pandemic. The bounce back has been driven by an increased investment in hardware, as individuals and companies have created work from home IT set ups, especially laptops.

Read More On The Global Computer Hardware Market Report:
https://www.thebusinessresearchcompany.com/report/computer-hardware-global-market-report-2020-30-covid-19-impact-and-recovery

North America remains the largest regional market for computer hardware, at $367.3 billion in 2020, followed by Asia at $250.0 billion as per the Global Market Model. Sales of high-end computers, including brands such as Apple, tend to be higher in North America, boosting the market there. Western Europe is the next largest market, at 126.8 billion, followed by Eastern Europe, the Middle East, South America, and Africa, in that order.

South America, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East lead market growth, with more than 5% growth per annum. These markets continue to see new users joining the market for computer hardware, as well as replacements and upgrades from existing customers. North America and Western Europe have slower growth rates, at 3.3% and 2.6% respectively. This is because these markets are relatively mature, with a small number of new users entering the market.

US consumers spent an average of more than $1000 per annum on computer hardware in 2020. Per capita spend in other highly developed markets such as Germany is considerably lower at around $400. Developing markets such as China and Russia spend around $100 per annum, and this is even lower in countries such as India with large rural populations.

The computer hardware market includes servers and processors but does not include embedded systems used in automobiles and manufacturing plants. It is segmented into computer peripheral equipment, computer storage devices and servers, and computers.

Computers themselves were the largest part of the computer hardware market in 2020, at around 700 billion dollars, followed by computer peripherals and equipment. These peripherals include printers, scanners, and monitors. Finally, storage devices and servers are the smallest part of the market at 105 billion in 2020. The computers segment was growing at 6.3% between 2010 and 2020. Other parts of the computer market are growing more slowly. The growth of the server market in particular has been hit by the movement of much software to the cloud, reducing the need for internal server capacity.

The Computer Hardware Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact and Recovery to 2030 is one of a series of new reports from The Business Research Company that provides computer hardware market overviews, analyzes and forecasts computer hardware market size, share, computer hardware market players, computer hardware market segments and geographies, the market’s leading competitors’ revenues, profiles and market shares.

Building Bridges: Philippines -Silicon Valley startup cooperation opens opportunities in the US and Southeast Asia

DTI Undersecretary Rafaelita Aldaba delivering her keynote remarks on PH-SV startup cooperation highlighting opportunities to access the US and Southeast Asia

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, UNITED STATES, July 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — 30 June 2021, San Francisco, California – As part of the ongoing initiatives to promote the Philippine startup industry and connecting it to the startup ecosystem in Silicon Valley for possible collaboration in the areas of training, mentorship, financing, and networking, the Philippine Consulate General in San Francisco, the Philippine Trade and Investment Center – Silicon Valley, and Dynamico Space organized its first hybrid (in-person and online) event entitled “Building Bridges: The Philippines and SF Startups and Mentoring.”

As the Philippines and the United States recover from the impact of the COVID 19 global pandemic and economic recession, Undersecretary Rafaelita Aldaba, who heads the Competitiveness and Innovation Group of the Department of Trade & Industry (DTI) shared that the program is a breath of fresh air bringing with it so much hope and inspiration in shaping the future of Philippines-Silicon Valley startup cooperation.

In January 2020, prior to the Pandemic and the lockdowns, the DTI together with the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) held consultations on the Innovative Startup Act in San Francisco. This landmark legislation promotes innovation by providing financial subsidies such as tax breaks and grants for startups along with startup visas, building of startup ecozones, startup grant fund and an innovative startup venture fund.

To date, the Philippines was able to implement a more comprehensive startup program focusing on incubation and acceleration services, mentorship, industry matching and development support, along with internationalization activities to expose our startups to ecosystems abroad. The National Development Company already allocated P300M for the matching grant fund program for this year. DTI is also collaborating with 500 Startups, a startup accelerator and global venture capital firm based in San Francisco, as the Philippines develop programs to foster the growth of local startups and promote the digital transformation in the country.

The DOST allotted a total of P43M to support the R&D of 14 local startups focusing on providing solutions to help jumpstart the economy and communities as the Philippines adjust to the new normal.

Undersecretary Aldaba noted that despite the Covid-19 pandemic disrupting economies and lives, it is amazing to see how startups have been offering solutions through the creation of new products, services, and processes. Based on a survey done by Price Waterhouse Cooper (PWC), 49% of Philippine startups explored new product/services and more than 20% of the startups said that they experienced an increasing demand for their services and products.

Using new technologies, startups have been providing support to government through contact tracing apps, personal and community health monitoring, chatbots, along with social distancing and online marketplaces. New innovative startups emerged during the crisis and some were even able to raise funds abroad.

One key lesson that can be draw from the pandemic is the acceleration of the use of digital technologies and innovation, which played a crucial role in ensuring quick responses to the crisis. The Philippines’ strategy embraces Industry 4.0 and view these new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) as drivers to achieve an inclusive, resilient, & sustainable industrial development.

Amid the Pandemic, DTI formulated and launched the Philippine A.I. Roadmap. The roadmap focuses on uplifting the lives of Filipinos, industries & the economy with the vision of positioning the Philippines as an A.I. regional hub. By adopting A.I., the Philippines can tap vast opportunities to help maintain the regional & global competitiveness of its industries, prepare the future workforce for the jobs of the future, & attract large companies to set up in the country.

One important goal of the roadmap is to identify and support local startups that can significantly contribute to the development of the A.I. ecosystem. Another equally important goal is the establishment of a National Center for A.I. Research. The A.I. Center will serve as hub for world-class A.I. scientists and researchers where multinational companies can explore various R&D projects with the researchers, and linkages with universities & research institutes. The Center will provide consultancy services, create A.I. tech products, along with data literacy trainings.

The Philippines will focus on the following applications of A.I.: precision farming to improve the productivity of the agriculture sector and increase the incomes of farmers, smart manufacturing, healthcare services, A.I.-powered BPO, smart cities, resilient technology.

Another important initiative is the building of Regional Inclusive Innovation Centers. The Philippines is made up of over 7,100 islands and 16 regions. The RIICs serve as platforms that link together the different players in the innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem: universities, LGUs, IPSOs/ITSOs, R&D labs, S&T parks, accelerators/accelerators, startups, MSMEs, LEs, government agencies & other players. The RIICs are innovation and collaboration spaces that focus on addressing industry issues/societal and environmental problems applying technological solutions.

Since the last gathering in San Francisco, there are also milestones that were highlighted:

• In January 2020, the architectural plans of Dynamico Space were revealed by Mr. JR Calanoc. Today, it is fully operational and the host for the event “Building Bridges: The Philippines and SF Startups and Mentoring.”
• Plentina Founder, Kevin Gabayan, who was one of the panel speakers for the innovative startup act consultation was at the early stages of implementing his vision for a company that aims to advance financial inclusion in the Philippines. Today, PLENTINA has grown significantly in the Philippines and had expanded its merchant partners to include 7-Eleven Philippines and Smart Communications.
• TASKUS, a Philippine-reared BPO debuted on the US Nasdaq last June 11, valuing the company at US$2.8bn. TaskUs has not only triumphed, but it has helped to put the Philippines, and the Philippine outsourcing industry, in the spotlight on the global stage.

Undersecretary Aldaba emphasized that these partnerships and achievements are testament to the opportunities that can be harnessed through strong collaborations. Through the Innovative Startup Act and the strong focus of the A.I. Roadmap to promote startups, the Philippines could build more successful startups like TaskUs. Cooperation and collaboration between countries would be a vital step as we face the post crisis future.

— Sunil Jagani

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, USA, July 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The announcement of Windows365 rocked the tech world on July 14, 2021. We thought there would be no better person to catch up with regarding this release, and what it means for tech, than Sunil Jagani, founder and president of AllianceTek.

Sunil Jagani has an illustrious history in tech. He holds both a Business Degree and a Master’s Degree in Software Development from Penn State, and his professional experience includes successful stints at multiple financial institutions, including Advanta and Bisys. In 2004, he founded technology company AllianceTek whose clients now include Johnson & Johnson, Royal Bank of Canada, and the NFL.

What is Windows365?
“Sunil, welcome, and thank you so much for being interviewed. In a nutshell, what is Windows365?”

“Thank you for having me. Windows365 is a cloud-only Windows operating system. Users can access it from any device using only a web browser or Microsoft’s RDP client which is available on Windows, Android, and iOS. The Windows365 OS maintains its state from login to login so users can pick up where they left off instantly.

“Was this cloud-only version of Windows a surprise for you?”

“Yes and no. Ever since Satya Nadella took over from Steve Balmer as CEO, Microsoft has banked heavily on the cloud. Under Nadella’s leadership, the Redmond-based software giant’s shares have risen steadily.

“According to a TechCrunch article written about him in 2019, Nadella transformed Microsoft’s entire culture. Whereas, previously, Microsoft had an attitude of ‘Microsoft-only or bust,’ the company has made substantive changes to its ethos, adopting a more modern view of interoperability and cloud-readiness.

“Under Nadella’s leadership, Office365 was released. And with it, Android and iOS versions of Office apps appeared, as well as a browser-only version.

“Azure, Microsoft’s cloud-computing engine, became profitable. And then Microsoft won a $10 billion cloud-computing contract with the Department of Defense, shoving out Amazon who were the favorites. That was probably when everyone sat up and took notice—Microsoft was a different beast now. And it was investing big in the cloud.

“So, no, I wasn’t too surprised when it announced Windows365, although I didn’t fully expect it.”

Is Windows365 like Azure?

“You mentioned Azure. Doesn’t Azure already offer virtual Windows PCs for users? What makes Windows365 different from that?”

“Windows365 is actually built on Azure Virtual Desktop technology but the procedure for signing up and getting started has been simplified tremendously.

“Azure’s virtual PC offering wasn’t designed for the end-user. It was set up at an organizational level, by an IT department. Setup was complicated and pricing is designed on a per-use basis.

“Amazon Workspaces also offer a Windows Virtual Desktop, and so does Citrix. Each of them suffers from the same failings—a complicated pricing model and difficulty of setup for the average user.

“With Windows365, Microsoft has made configuring a PC, choosing its RAM and CPU, a piece of cake. A lot of effort has been put into UX as well so that businesses can just get going right away.”

Business and personal use, plus pricing
“I heard that Windows365 is only available to businesses right now. Is that correct?”

“That’s correct. Windows365 is currently only available to businesses, but that includes one- person businesses.

“Again, this is in stark contrast with Azure’s virtual desktop which requires a minimum of 100 users. I don’t think it will be long before Windows365 is also available for personal use.”

“What is the price of Windows365?”

“Microsoft will announce the price on August 2nd when Windows365 is officially launched. But The Verge reported a leaked price tag of $31 per month for a PC with two CPUs, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. That’s not the lowest tier of pricing, apparently.”

“Some people were not pleased with the Office365 subscription model. And $31 per month is almost $400 at the end of the year. Do you think this pricing is sustainable?”

“We don’t currently know what the pricing includes. As I said, the data was leaked. It’s conceivable that the price will include an Office license, so there would be a saving there.

“The entire concept of a cloud-based OS is disruptive, and putting a price tag on it is difficult because nothing like Windows365 has ever existed before. Automatic updates, uptime agreement, a fully managed OS, lowered security risks—these are all added-value items that people don’t get with personal computers. I think business clients will find these added-value security features worth paying for.”

Backward compatibility with Windows365
“Sunil, you offer software development at AllianceTek. What does Windows365 mean for application development? Does it signal the end of the .Net framework or Windows Apps?”

“Not at all. Windows365 is a fully-fledged operating system. The only difference is that it runs in the cloud. It’s not like ChromeOS which sits on the machine and is really just a glorified web browser. A remotely accessed Windows365 machine is a Windows machine and it can run compiled code and the .Net framework and Windows apps and everything.

“But there is, of course, always a small risk that some line-of-business apps won’t work in new versions of Windows. For companies that qualify and have over 150 users on Windows365, Microsoft is including their AppAssure service as part of the contract. AppAssure is a service where a dedicated Microsoft rep can be assigned to a company to help get their specific app working on Windows.”

Internet access and hardware
“What about internet access? People in remote areas will have trouble accessing Windows365. Won’t this be a problem for those who travel or people who live in areas with low connectivity?”

“Connectivity issues didn’t stop Google from launching the Chromebook in 2011. And Google was lambasted by the critics for that! The Register called the Chromebook a ‘damp squid’ at the time. But the skeptics were soon eating humble pie because, by 2016, Chromebooks were outselling macOS computers. And education institutions have bet big on the brand.

“But Google did eventually add some degree of offline capability to its machines, both in hardware and also in their web apps. You can use Google Docs and GMail offline these days, and Chromebook now runs Linux and Android apps, which is useful for those times you’re stuck somewhere with no internet.

“Jared Spataro, Corporate Vice President of Modern Work at Microsoft, said in a CNET interview that Windows365 will store nothing at all on the local machine. This is in contrast to the Chromebook. So, yes, that’s an interesting point. I predict that this limitation will change eventually, letting users at least keep something on the local machine, like Chromebook eventually did.”

“You mentioned the Chromebook. People do need a device to access this new Windows365 cloud operating system. What will happen when Windows 10 hits its sunset date? I doubt Microsoft will recommend that everybody buys a Chromebook or an iPad!”

“It’s a great question. And there’s the matter of OEM contracts and manufacturers with big- number deals to pre-install Windows on their machines. I doubt Microsoft will just throw that income stream away.

“Windows365 is essentially Windows 10 or Windows 11 when it is released, but operating remotely. It’s possible that Windows 11 will also be available for local machines.

“Or maybe Satya Nadella has something else up his sleeve. You never know!”

Is Windows365 secure?
“Sunil, last but not least. Let’s talk security. In your opinion, is a cloud-based OS better or worse than a local one?”

“A 2017 study found that there is one laptop stolen every 53 seconds. Lifespan Corporation recently had to pay a $1,040,000 fine for a data breach that occurred in 2017 as a result of a stolen laptop.

“Microsoft has baked security right into Windows365. There’s multi-factor authentication, Azure Active Directory, conditional access policies, and a few other security tools which can be managed via Microsoft Endpoint Manager to make accessing the OS virtually impossible without social engineering or theft of passwords and mobile phones combined. All things considered, Windows365 is a more secure bet than a local OS.”

“Sunil, thank you so much for spending time with us. It has been a pleasure speaking with you.”

“Thank you.”
