Newnote Financial Message from the President

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:07 AM on Thursday, June 4th, 2015

PayIvy.com Acquisition Highlights:

  • Over 20,000 merchants selling digital products online
  • 5000+ new merchants per month
  • Processing over $300,000 a month in transactions
  • Financially self-sustaining and profitable
  • Closest competitor is Fiverr.Com which has raised $50 million to date

Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire) - Newnote Financial Corp. (the “Company”), (CSE: NEU; OTCQB: NWWTF; FSE: 1W4) President and CEO Paul Dickson reports: I am pleased to provide this brief update as we work to improve shareholder satisfaction from one of Canada’s only publicly traded companies engaged in the development and support of services related to crypto-currencies.

Over the past few months we have added key individuals to the executive team and retained top senior developers to bring our new and existing services to fruition. We have acquired PayIvy.com and Cointrader.net, both of which have positioned Newnote to be the beneficiary of significant financial gain and profitability.

In light of the recent billion dollar Shopify.com IPO, our very own 100% owned merchant store builder PayIvy.com went virtually unnoticed when acquired by Newnote in May. We are confident that PayIvy will be a major contender within the merchant services space due to the compelling statistics noted below.

PayIvy.com Acquisition Highlights:

  • Over 20,000 merchants selling digital products online
  • 5000+ new merchants per month
  • Processing over $300,000 a month in transactions
  • Financially self-sustaining and profitable
  • Closest competitor is Fiverr.Com which has raised $50 million to date
  • Hockey stick growth in past 2 months
  • Additional monetization methods coming soon

The Cointrader.net acquisition has presented us with many opportunities as we continue its development. We have been very pleased with its growth and have a strategy in place to grow revenue substantially by year end. Recently announced partnership with Rebit.ph enables users to send funds from Canada to countries such as the Philippines, South Africa, Mexico, and Kenya among others.

Cointrader.net Acquisition Highlights:

  • One of Canada’s Leading Bitcoin Exchanges
  • $18.9 million exchanged in 2014
  • Over $500,000 in revenue for 2014
  • 11,000 active users in Canada
  • 1,000 new users per month
  • 100% insured deposits
  • 1,000 POS and ATMs connected
  • Instant Bank Transfers via Interac Online
  • Remittance services to 10 countries
  • Integrations with Vogogo, Taype International, Coinpayments and Interac Online

In October of 2014, Newnote acquired a 20% equity position in Coinpayments.com, the world’s 3rd largest crypto-currency payment processor. At that time, Coinpayments had 7500 merchants and no fiat conversion. Over the past 8 months Coinpayments has continued to grow and evolve and has more than doubled its merchants. Coinpayments remains a privately held company and no independent valuation has been released at this time.

With Cointrader.net, PayIvy.com, and Coinpayments.com under our umbrella, Newnote’s developers are working to integrate our services into a complete eco-system where any individual can open a store in minutes on PayIvy.com; accept 50+ different crypto-currencies through Coinpayments.com, automatically convert those crypto-currencies into fiat and deposit them directly into their bank account through Cointrader.net. With Cointrader’s advanced API and brokerage solution, existing currency exchangers can offer USD/BTC and CAD/BTC currency conversion with additional currency pairs coming soon. These incredibly powerful tools will enable people from all corners of the world to participate in the digital currency revolution and we’re very excited to be a part of it.

In an effort to reduce advertising costs for promoting Newnote services, the Company acquired BitVisits.com in April 2015. BitVisits is a Paid-to-Surf advertising platform that allows its users to earn Bitcoin for viewing websites. At the time of purchase, BitVisits had 12,000 active web surfers generating thousands of page views per day. Today, BitVisits has over 20,000 web surfers — adding over 6000 new users in two months. BitVisits generates revenue from advertisers and accounts for up to 40% of referral traffic on Newnote services.

During the past year, Newnote has made several achievements within this emerging sector and has stayed focused on the task at hand; namely, we are creating and identifying great products and services while increasing shareholder value and having a positive impact on the digital finance sector as a whole.

Newnote Financial Highlights:

  • Distributed thousands of custom cold storage Bitcoin wallets
  • Designed and launched the world’s first gold backed crypto-currency

IndependenceCoin for client AnthemVault

  • Acquired one of the leading Bitcoin exchanges in Canada, Cointrader.net
  • Acquired a leading merchant services asset, PayIvy.com
  • Acquired an equity position in top crypto payment processor, Coinpayments.com
  • Acquired CoinExchange Bitcoin Trading App for Android devices
  • Acquired Advertising platform BitVisits.com
  • Secured an expert executive and development team
  • Positioned itself to be profitable in 2016 and going forward

Newnote intends to stay the course by continuing to create, innovate and pursue our vision of providing leading edge services, within our specialized space, while offering investors exposure to what may certainly be the most significant change in finance in the past 100 year’s.

New York Stock Exchange Launches Bitcoin Price Index

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:07 AM on Friday, May 22nd, 2015

  • NYXBT will represent the daily US dollar value of one bitcoin at 4pm (BST) and will be published on the NYSE Global Index Feed (GIF).
  • bitcoin price index will use data from transactions taking place on San Francisco-based bitcoin exchange Coinbase
  • Wall Street takes notice, Goldman Sachs recently participated in a $50m funding round raised by bitcoin financial services startup Circle

The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) has today announced the launch of a bitcoin price index (NYXBT).

NYXBT will represent the daily US dollar value of one bitcoin at 4pm (BST) and will be published on the NYSE Global Index Feed (GIF).

For a limited period it will also be viewable on the NYSE’s website.

Thomas Farley, NYSE group president, said in a statement:

“Bitcoin values are quickly becoming a data point that our customers want to follow as they consider transacting, trading or investing with this emerging asset class.”

He added: “As a global index leader and administrator of ICE LIBOR, ICE Futures US Dollar Index and many other notable benchmarks, we are pleased to bring transparency to this market.”

The bitcoin price index will use data from transactions taking place on San Francisco-based bitcoin exchange Coinbase.

However, a statement released by the NYSE said that it would continue to review other bitcoin exchanges to see whether they met the criteria required for inclusion in the index. “The NYSE Bitcoin suite of indices is anticipated to grow, with new indices introduced over time.”

Growing interest on Wall Street

The move comes after the Wall Street stock exchange invested in Coinbase’s $75m Series C funding round, which closed in January this year.

Speaking to CoinDesk following the announcement, Farley said: “With this investment, we are tapping into a new asset class by teaming up with a leading platform that is bringing transparency, security and confidence to an important growth market.”

The NYSE is not the only firm on Wall Street investing in the digital currency.

Multinational banking giant Goldman Sachs recently participated in a $50m funding round raised by bitcoin financial services startup Circle.

Just last month, developers at the Bank of New York Mellon Corp were revealed to be experimenting with bitcoin’s open-source code on the bank’s new corporate recognition program.

Newnote Financial Partners with Rebit to Offer International Remittance Service

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:07 AM on Wednesday, April 15th, 2015

Vancouver, British Columbia – Newnote Financial Corp. (the “Company”), (CSE: NEU; OTCQB: NWWTF; FSE: 1W4) is pleased to announce the Company has signed a strategic partnership with Rebit.ph of the Philippines to enable users a cost effective method of transferring funds to their respective countries.

In 2014, an expected US$436 Billion was remitted by migrants back to their families in the developing world. The cost of sending those remittances is estimated at US$47 billion.

Rebit.ph is a service of Satoshi Citadel Industries, a Philippine-based holdings company for Bitcoin-related ventures. The Philippines is the second largest recipient for remittances in Asia, with a total of US$26 billion transferred in 2013, of which $2 billion was from Canada alone.

Newnote and Rebit generate revenue by charging a small transaction fee, which is significantly less than the charges of conventional banks and money transfer agents, which charge hefty fees for international transactions.

Through the integration of Rebit’s API and Newnote’s Cointrader.net Bitcoin Exchange API, users of Cointrader will have the ability to send funds internationally starting with the Philippines. The process is simple once a client has registered for a Cointrader account and has deposited cash or Bitcoin. Users define how much money they wish to transfer, hit send, Bitcoin is then moved to Rebit’s wallet in the Philippines, and the recipient is notified by text-message that the funds have arrived and have either been deposited into a bank account or picked up in person at the Makati office.

CEO & President of Newnote, Paul Dickson, reports: “This strategic partnership with Rebit marks the first of many opportunities Newnote will have in the coming months by fully monetizing our Cointrader.net API possibilities. We’re pleased to be working with Rebit and looking forward to announcing service to other countries in the near future.”

While still cautious of becoming exposed to “cryptocurrencies,” some of the firms, which trade with their own money on their own behalf, say they see potential for big profits in trading bitcoin as more investors enter the market and financial-services firms use the currency to streamline transactions.

Their involvement could help reduce volatility in the market for bitcoin, which has struggled to gain legitimacy in part because of concerns about wild swings in its price.

Among the companies at the forefront of this move is DRW Holdings LLC, a high-frequency trading firm in Chicago founded by former options-pit trader Donald Wilson in 1992. DRW is a founding investor in a new bitcoin financial-services firm called Digital Asset Holdings that launched last month. Cumberland Mining & Materials LLC, a DRW subsidiary, has “begun to experiment with cryptocurrency trading,” DRW said.

Other firms with large proprietary trading groups also appear to have an appetite for greater exposure to bitcoin.

Citadel Securities LLC in Chicago and KCG Holdings Inc. in Jersey City, N.J., were among a small group of firms that have offered bids to buy shares of the Bitcoin Investment Trust since it listed last month on the OTC Markets, a platform typically used for trading shares of smaller companies that aren’t as heavily regulated as stocks listed on exchanges.

The trust holds bitcoin in a fund that issues shares to wealthy investors accredited by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

KCG spokeswoman Sophie Sohn said that in addition to the engagement with the trust, her firm is “actively exploring various opportunities related to” bitcoin. Citadel said it was not involved in Bitcoin apart from the bids offered for the trust, a spokesman said.

Wedbush Securities, another firm that has made offers to buy shares of the trust, saw it as “a good place to get your feet wet” with bitcoin, said Gil Luria, a payment analyst at the Los Angeles-based investment bank.

Launched by an unidentified software coder in January 2009, bitcoin is a digital currency that is created, or “mined,” by computers.

Advocates believe it will transform how people buy and sell goods and transfer money across the globe. But its rise has been plagued by concerns about a lack of security, criminal usage and price volatility. While it is accepted by an estimated 100,000 merchants world-wide, its use by mainstream consumers remains limited.

Investment in bitcoin and related digital currency-based businesses has surged in recent months, in part reflecting bets by venture capitalists and other investors on several noncurrency uses for the technology that underlies bitcoin. Various applications are under development that aim to strip out middlemen from the financial system and enhance record keeping and transparency in the broader economy.

One persistent problem for the bitcoin market is it can be hard to trade because there aren’t enough buyers and sellers at exchanges. Executives at those exchanges have sought to persuade high-frequency trading firms to begin making markets in bitcoin, trading-firm executives said.

In market making, a trading firm offers both bids and offers for an asset so that investors always have a willing party with which to trade. The trading firm tries to capture the spread between the bids and offers, buying at a slightly cheaper price and selling at a slightly higher price.

Ari Rubenstein, co-founder of Global Trading Systems Inc. in New York, said his team is looking at how to trade bitcoin but is waiting for regulators to give a signal that they approve of it.

“No one has an idea if bitcoin is going to take off and be unbelievable, but everyone agrees it has that potential,” he said. “But we are still weighing the risks of getting involved.”

Until now, New York broker-dealer SecondMarket Inc., a pioneer in trading alternative securities such as private-company shares, has been the largest institutional market maker.

The firm, which launched the Bitcoin Investment Trust in 2013, said it has traded almost 800,000 bitcoins valued at more than $300 million since its founding.

While there has been a higher level of interest in bitcoin from institutional investors, including hedge funds and proprietary traders, there are still a number of challenges for the market to overcome before those players can get more heavily involved, said SecondMarket director Michael Moro.

“One is that at a $3.5 billion market cap, it is still a small place for traditional large money institutional guys to make markets,” he said. “Two, liquidity is scattered” across exchanges in Hong Kong, Europe and the U.S.

For firms to get more engaged in trading bitcoin directly on a large scale, it will require more sophisticated exchange infrastructure and regulatory certainty, said Charles Cascarilla, chief executive officer of ItBit Pte. Ltd., a bitcoin exchange.

“They are all very interested, but it comes down to having some kind of regulatory clarity as well as to the technology available—whether you have something they feel is trustworthy, whether you have a big enough capital base, whether you have good enough technology,” he said.
