Denver News Updates: WADZ TAKES ON TRADITIONAL PAYMENT FIRMS WITH THE BETA LAUNCH OF ITS APPLICATION

Wadz Takes on Traditional Payment Firms with the Beta Launch of its Application

Singapore-based startup, Wadz, is set to take on traditional payment firms, with its anticipated beta launch on November 25, 2019.

Targeting emerging countries such as Indonesia and Vietnam as a start, Wadz offers an alternative payment technology that will be of benefit to both consumers and merchants.

Wadz stands out by a number of key features including utilization of blockchain technology, easy integration to major shopping cart plug-ins, and near-zero processing fees. It also recognizes cryptocurrency payments.

One demographic on which Wadz is focusing is the “unbanked”. An estimated 200 million people in Indonesia and Vietnam have limited access to banking institutions loans, e-commerce, and health care. Wadz hopes to help these people improve their way of life by enabling new payment modalities for these services.

Wadz will then lead an in-depth discussion on the impact of blockchain technology across industries at PSB Academy City Campus, Singapore on November 27, 2019, at 7pm.

Among the distinguished roster of speakers is Anndy Lian, author of the book “Blockchain Revolution 2030” and blockchain advisor for Asian Productivity Organization (APO). His knowledge of blockchain technology has drawn attention from various international media.

Wadz CEO, Anish Jain, who will also speak in the forum, views this event as an excellent jumping-off point as Wadz goes full steam ahead. “Wadz is off to a promising start after attracting over 50,000 merchants in Indonesia and 5,000 in Vietnam,” he says. “Adopting the innovations Wadz offers will help merchants grow their businesses so we are confident that these numbers will further increase as we move along.”

Moderating the forum is Wadz’s Regional VP of Partnerships and passionate blockchain entrepreneur, Aaron Tan.

This forum is open to all. Interested parties can register for free at https://www.eventbrite.sg/e/blockchain-industrial-impact-wadz-beta-launch-tickets-81420696495.

Integrating “Blockchain + IoT + AI” into traditional industries

Integrating “Blockchain + IoT + AI” into traditional industries

Linfinity CEO Anndy Lian was invited as a keynote speaker at Huobi Carnival in South Korea, held from August 2 to 3.

Huobi Carnival was organised by Huobi, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world. Industry heavyweights and South Korean government officials gathered at the event to discuss the future development of the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry.

Blockchain needs to be combined with traditional industries

In his keynote speech, Lian introduced blockchain anti-counterfeit tracking technology and its business applications. He said, “The development of blockchain has brought new opportunities for traditional industries. But we need to clearly understand that blockchain’s development cannot be separated from traditional industries.”

Lian believes that due to blockchain’s transparency, immutability, and traceability, it can effectively resolve pain areas in various industries.

“I do not think blockchain has created a new industry. On the other hand, I think it is going to revolutionise other industries’ methods of growth by providing a new technological tool,” Lian added.

“Blockchain + IoT + AI” combination to combat counterfeits

According to a recent report from Research and Markets, the total loss caused by counterfeit products adds up to USD 120 billion in a year. That figure is estimated to increase to USD 182 billion in 2020. As counterfeit products become increasingly prominent, brands need to invest more time and money into protecting their brand image and products.

However, traditional anti-counterfeit technologies rely on centralised platforms and often use technology in limited ways. This makes them susceptible to malicious attacks.

Lian said, “The appearance of blockchain sheds light on a new future for different industries. For anti-counterfeiting, simply relying on blockchain technology will not be enough. If current technologies are effective 60% of the time, we need to bridge the remaining 40% by using blockchain, IoT, and AI.”

“This is how supply chains should be like. Decentralised data storage platforms can solve security and credibility concerns. AI can ensure that information entered is reliable. IoT allows more objects to be connected and communicate freely.”

“When using blockchain for anti-counterfeit purposes, and we need to revolutionise current methods at the same time. This will allow for a greater degree of integration and realise the true value of blockchain,” he added.

In an interview that Lian gave to the South Korean AsiaeTV, he said, “Blockchain will play an important role. And customers are very important in the process of blockchain commercialisation. Linfinity has already formed partnerships with multinational companies from diverse fields, including Taiwanese cigarette brand Alishan Group. Lian said, “Next, we are going to walk out of Asia and enter the European market, look for more industry partners, and drive blockchain’s commecialization.”
