  • Partnered with Empower Clinics to establish the Re-open Vancouver coalition with the goal of obtaining an approved end-to-end COVID-19 mitigation solution that can be presented to local, Provincial and Federal Government authorities on behalf of local stakeholders to help in the re-opening of Vancouver’s travel and tourism industry, including Vancouver’s cruise industry.
  • Will lead a coalition to deploy the necessary infrastructure needed to enable the economic recovery of the local Vancouver economy.
  • Under the leadership of Loop and Empower, the Re-open Vancouver coalition will focus on a science and data-driven approach to delivering an integrated end-to-end solution worthy of re-opening Vancouver’s robust tourism industry, including its convention center and cruise ship industry.
  • According to Your Canada , Vancouver’s tourism industry generates approximately 15 million unique visitors per year.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 26, 2021 — Loop Insights Inc. (TSXV:MTRX OTCQB:RACMF) (the “Company” or “Loop”), a provider of contactless solutions and artificial intelligence (“AI”) to drive real-time insights, enhanced customer engagement, and automated venue management solutions to physical brick and mortar operators, is pleased to announce the Company has partnered with Empower Clinics to establish the Re-open Vancouver coalition with the goal of obtaining an approved end-to-end COVID-19 mitigation solution that can be presented to local, Provincial and Federal Government authorities on behalf of local stakeholders to help in the re-opening of Vancouver’s travel and tourism industry, including Vancouver’s cruise industry.

Loop Insights and Empower Clinics will lead a coalition to deploy the necessary infrastructure needed to enable the economic recovery of the local Vancouver economy. Under the leadership of Loop and Empower, the Re-open Vancouver coalition will focus on a science and data-driven approach to delivering an integrated end-to-end solution worthy of re-opening Vancouver’s robust tourism industry, including its convention center and cruise ship industry. According to Your Canada , Vancouver’s tourism industry generates approximately 15 million unique visitors per year.

Following the Canadian federal government’s announcement that all international travelers will be required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test in order to enter the country, Loop and Empower feel the two companies are uniquely positioned to provide a combined solution in the form of a digital Wallet pass with bank-level security and privacy that can be offered to travelers visiting Vancouver.

Steven McAuley, Chairman, and CEO of Empower stated “Benefiting from the leadership of two local Vancouver public companies, with the support of significant private and public sector participants, Re-open Vancouver is confident it will demonstrate how crucial our efforts are to the economy of the City of Vancouver, the Province of B.C. and Canada. In partnership with Loop Insights, we have market-proven tools, services, testing products, and healthcare infrastructure to make this happen now.”

Tourism Industry Facing $3.3 Trillion In Global Losses Due to Closures

According to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the tourism industry stands to lose up to $3.3 trillion in revenue due to closures if the industry is to remain shuttered for a year. In an effort to prevent these losses, Loop Insights will continue to work with Empower to deploy its integrated venue management platform to protect industries in need of robust safety and security protocols. To date, the Re-open Vancouver Coalition has entered into conversations with leading stakeholders in the tourism, travel, and hospitality industries.

Loop Insights CEO Rob Anson stated: “Many key provincial stakeholders in the travel, tourism, and hospitality sector have recently reached out as a result of our most recent successes deploying Loop’s venue management platform. Operators are in desperate need of a seamless and transformative solution that kickstarts the economic recovery process. Along with Empower Clinics, we will look to work with industries’ best of breed partners to deliver a unified solution that ensures best practice considerations in regards to the health, safety, and wellbeing of local residents and tourists alike.“

Loop Insights first partnered with Empower Clinics in October 2020 to provide an end-to-end COVID-19 mitigation solution complete with venue tracing, real-time automated guest exposure notifications, and testing procedures based on published guidelines.

Is blockchain coming to your bank?

  • On Wednesday evening, the collective value of all cryptocurrencies crossed $1T (with a frickin “T”). And on Thursday, Bitcoin, the most prominent coin, hit $40k — 2x its price from just a month ago.
  • While these are huge milestones for the industry, it may not even be the most consequential ones of the week.
  • The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) — a bank-regulating bureau within the Treasury Department — has issued guidance saying banks may adopt certain blockchain technologies.

On Wednesday evening, the collective value of all cryptocurrencies crossed $1T (with a frickin “T”). And on Thursday, Bitcoin, the most prominent coin, hit $40k — 2x its price from just a month ago.

While these are huge milestones for the industry, it may not even be the most consequential ones of the week.

The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) — a bank-regulating bureau within the Treasury Department — has issued guidance saying banks may adopt certain blockchain technologies.

Specifically, chartered banks can deploy stablecoins, which are more… er… stable than other crypto because they’re pegged to other assets.

The OCC has been very forward-looking on payments…

… since a former Coinbase executive, Brian Brooks, took over the bureau in May 2020.

According to Forbes, Brooks has previously:

  • Issued guidance allowing banks to custody cryptocurrencies
  • Created a special payment charter for fintech firms

One DC lawyer said the OCC was similarly ahead of the pack on internet banking, and the latest guidance (AKA an interpretative letter) will help make crypto more mainstream.

What does this really mean?

Jeremy Allaire, CEO of blockchain payments startup Circle, says the OCC’s move is important because it:

  • Allows banks to treat blockchain like other payments infrastructure (e.g., SWIFT, ACH)
  • Enables banks to use decentralized and faster settlement technology
  • Creates a path for the US to create its own digital currency (AKA a “USDC”)

Furtner, Forbes notes that there’s a huge opportunity to improve the speed of cross-border transactions if US banks deploy blockchain.

The changes are happening too fast for some

In November, 6 members of Congress criticized the OCC for moving “unilaterally” on crypto regulation.

The OCC itself acknowledges that banks must expand “compliance programs” to deal with any blockchain-related transactions.

Meanwhile, another US bureau with the Treasury Department, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), released more stringent rules on data collection for digital wallets.

Crypto is moving fast, but there are still some hurdles to clear until the next trillion (with a frickin’ “T”) in market value is created.

We all remember the crash of “blockchain” smallcap stocks a couple of years back, which was actually a crash of blockchain pretenders who used the term to build stock promotions, as opposed to building actual blockchains.  

Like the dot-com crash of 2000, which bankrupted “dot-com” companies but gave birth to the likes of Google, Amazon, Linkedin because they built actual utility and value, the same can be expected of the blockchain crash and its resurgence.

Blockchain Foundry is a “Blockchain 2.0” company that has survived and is thriving. More than just lip service, take a look at the following highlights:   

  • Revenue for 9 months of 2020  (ending Sept 30) ~$1.1M 
    • 113% Year Over Year Growth
    • Net Income $140,000 = $610,000 Improvement
  • Completed development agreement with a large Canadian financial institution valued at approximately C$400,000; 
  • Partnered with Binance, the largest digital asset trading platform in the world, to leverage the Syscoin platform. 
  • 5 Active Clients + Robust Pipeline

Conclusion – BCFN is a smallcap Blockchain company with Real Customers, Real Revenues and Real Income

#Blockchain Coalition Launches Tradable Carbon Credit Token – SPONSOR: Blockchain Foundry $BCFN.ca $HUT.ca $BITF.ca $GLXY.ca $HIVE.ca $VYGR.ca

Blockchain Coalition Launches Tradable Carbon Credit Token

  • Stablecoin pioneer Uphold is claiming to have launched the first tradable retail carbon token.
  • The Universal Protocol Alliance, a coalition of blockchain companies led by Uphold and including Bittrex Global, Ledger, Certik and Infinigold, announced the Universal Carbon (UPCO2) token Tuesday. 
By: Ian Allison

Each blockchain-based UPCO2 token represents a certified measure of carbon dioxide. They can be bought and held as an investment, or burned to offset a company or individual’s carbon footprint, the group said.

A rather overloaded term, “carbon credits” can refer to both government-issued credits traded on regulated markets, and voluntary carbon offsetting where credits can help remove emissions via projects that plant trees, for instance. Blockchain technology has been touted as a way to prevent the double counting (or double spending) of carbon credits in all areas and markets.

Uphold is starting out by tokenizing voluntary carbon credits, in particular REDD credits that are of high quality, easy to understand and make up about 58% of the voluntary carbon market, explained JP Thieriot, co-founder of the UP Alliance and CEO of Uphold. Each UPCO2 Token represents one year-ton of CO2 pollution averted by a certified REDD+ project preventing rainforest loss or degradation, he said. 

Based on the Ethereum ERC-20 standard, the tokens are backed by a Voluntary Carbon Unit (VCU), a digital certificate issued by international standards agency Verra, which allows certified projects to turn their greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions into tradable carbon credits.

Today, the retail market for voluntary carbon credits – via sites like TerraPass or Cool Effect – allow access, but not holding or trading, which is the important distinction, said Thieriot.

“We are the first people in the world that are making these credits accessible to retail, and holdable,” he told CoinDesk in an interview. “So there’s lots of retail sites that allow you to offset the trip you just took to New Zealand or give somebody a clever Christmas present. But they don’t allow the buying and holding for investment or speculative purposes.”

When he began looking at voluntary credits as fungible assets, Thieriot expected the prevailing “NGO mindset” was probably going to be sceptical of a project to harness a younger generation’s speculative interest. 

“Actually, every single conversation we had, people totally got it. They all understood that if we can pull that trick off, it could change the world,” Thieriot said.

Voluntary carbon offsetting is also of interest to companies like Amazon and Microsoft and Nike, said Thieriot, who are no longer interested in waiting around for governments to take the lead, and have set out to neutralize their current carbon footprint, or even their entire historical footprint, by their own initiative.  

Meanwhile, demand for carbon credits is set to outstrip supply by a factor of four to one in 2020, according to the World Bank. And a change in the political climate in the U.S. looks likely, with President-elect Joe Biden announcing a climate administration.

The UPCO2 tokens are to undergo a “curing process,” which amounts to a primary issuance, said Thieriot, whereby they will be made available from today on the Uphold platform. 

“Initially we are going to offer it on Uphold for about four to six weeks and then Bittrex Global will light it up,” Thieriot said. “And then we’d like every exchange in the world to pick them up.”

Common Types of Cryptocurrency that You Should Know

By Staff – 20 November 2020

Cryptocurrency is steadily winning grounds. You can use cryptocurrency as an investment or a means of payment. It’s a digital alternative to cash or credit cards to make everyday payments. In the past, the crypto business sounded scary. But many are now gaining trust and investing in the different types of cryptocurrencies available. 

What is blockchain cryptocurrency? 

Blockchain cryptocurrency is a digital asset that works as a medium of exchange. It’s different from the common traditional currencies in that it works on digital channels with strong encryption to secure all online financial transactions. The encryption layers also control the creation of additional units and also verify the transfer of assets. There are various types of blockchain cryptocurrencies such as: 

1. Bitcoin 

Bitcoin is one of the commonly used currencies. It’s perceived to be an original cryptocurrency and was created in 2009. Bitcoin uses blockchain technology and enables users to make peer-to-peer transactions. The transactions are secured through an algorithm within the blockchain. You can view the transactions, but only the bitcoin owner can decrypt it using a private key. 

Bitcoins are different from bank transactions in that there’s no central regulatory authority. The users manage and control the transactions, which allows for anonymous exchanges. You can use Bitcoin to pay bills using Bitcoin debit cards. You can also use Bitcoins in Bitcoin licensed casinos to pay for poker and slot games. 

2. Litecoin 

Litecoin is a Bitcoin alternative, which was launched in 2011. Like other cryptocurrencies, it’s an open-source and a global payment network. Is there a difference between Litecoin and bitcoin? Yes, some are listed below;
Litecoin offers faster transaction times than bitcoin
The coin limit for Litecoin is 84 million, while the limit for Bitcoin is 21 million.
Both use different algorithms; Litecoin is a scrypt, while Bitcoin is SHA-256. 

3. Bitcoin Cash 

Bitcoin cash is a type of digital currency. It was designed to enhance some of the Bitcoin features and came with many gains. The cryptocurrency was launched in 2017 and enhanced the block sizes, enabling more and faster transactions. The launch of Bitcoin Cash was supported by some key Bitcoin investors, such as Roger ver, who was for the idea that Bitcoin’s block size limit inhibits its ability to scale or accrue value. 

4. Stellar Lumen 

Stellar Lumen operates as an intermediary currency and facilitates currency exchange. It’s borderless and allows for exchanges between different currencies from one owner to another. With Stellar, you can create, send, and trade in different digital forms of money, pesos, dollars, Bitcoin, and many more. It allows the world’s financial systems to operate on a single network. 

5. Ethereum 

Ethereum is an open-source platform and a type of blockchain technology lanced in 2015. Ethereum is accessible worldwide, and you can use it to write codes that control digital values and run as programmed. 

It helps in the tracking of ownership of digital currency transactions. It also runs the programming code on decentralized applications allowing application developers to use the Ethereum network for paying the transaction fees and services. 

Conclusion 

Cryptocurrencies are now used as a payment mode, and you can use them to pay bills in places that allow such transitions. To trade in cryptocurrency, choose an exchange wisely. Besides, cryptocurrencies aren’t regulated by a centralized body.
