Over the past two years, the interest in Blockchain on a global scale has skyrocketed. It currently is been view by many as a next-generation solution for both recently discovered and long standing problems as relates to technology and in almost all sectors of the global economy with particular attention in the financial sector.

Because of the tested Prowess of the Blockchain, a lot of weight have been thrown behind supporting the decade old invention. Among many, a few supporters of the next big thing in the tech world are the Government leaders, Industry Bigwigs and a few All-out risk takers who I like to address as the ambitious entrepreneurs – who have given influential endorsements, financial support and further research into the dynamics of the Blockchain respectively.

As a way of reminder, Blockchain was originally developed solely to hold and transact a digital asset- Bitcoin.

Now moving further beyond the Bitcoin saga and bubble, Blockchain, in the past few years, has been used in a broader and more revealing sense. Its ability to offer solutions in various areas of human activities has not only been a plus to it, but has also taken discovery in the IT Industry to a whole new level. It is about time we took a critical look at the brains behind the blockchain projects that have seen the light of day.

There has been a recent upsurge in the demand for people with any form of Blockchain skills, as reported by Upwork; a world leading freelance exchange platform. This is no news as Blockchain provides an whole new area of focus for future tech professionals.

However, in recent times, hypes and various schemes have contributed to the low rate of economic inclusion and mass adoption of the Technology in many geographical areas- areas with optimum use cases. Thus with recent influx of Blockchain projects, only projects with the best tokenomics, strategies and total commitment from the part of the project team are sure to see the light of the day.

According to Ambisafe, only as at October 2017, over 86000 blockchain related projects were already on Github, more statistics were produced by Delloitte as it records that over 8603 new projects based on the blockchain had emerged since after bitcoin code was published in April of 2009.

More exciting news is that only about 8% of these projects manage to stay in operations one year down the line of launch. The need therefore to closely monitor and follow blockchain projects paying rapt attention to the founders and entrepreneurs to gain an insight to their driving force is key to driving mass adoption.

Success in this Industry, is often thought to be impossible or unattainable but guess what, it only takes a meticulous team- built with dedication and full of technical know how to achieve the unimaginable and create a lasting impression on the universe.

#BUIDL CLUB was born out of passion for BLOCKCHAIN ADOPTION and the need to show appreciation to the Entrepreneurs in the space, both locally and globally. We are poised towards revealing and making a global statement for the African, American and Asian Entrepreneur in Blockchain.

Royal Bank of Canada is Exploring the Launch of a Cryptocurrency Trading Platform

Published

on

Royal Bank of Canada is exploring the Launch of a cryptocurrency trading platform for investments, in-store and online purchases according to a report.

The platform would facilitate the purchase and sale of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum and also facilitate the transfer of funds in different types of cryptocurrencies.

It was learned the Bank would also allow customers to open bank accounts containing cryptocurrency.

This move will position the Royal Bank of Canada as the first Canadian bank to launch a cryptocurrency exchange or offer its customers crypto accounts.

The Bank had previously applied for four patents in Canada and The US showing how it will integrate cryptocurrencies into its operations.

The patent read “To individual users, managing cryptographic keys and transacting with different cryptographic assets can be a challenge. In some situations, cryptographic asset transactions may take time to be confirmed, and/or may not be compatible or supported by merchant systems or point-of-sale devices,”

The spokesperson for the Bank, Jean Francois Thibaultwas quoted saying;

“As part of the innovation and discovery process, RBC, like many other organizations, files patent applications to ensure proprietary ideas and concepts are protected,”

The bank has been partly using blockchain for payments between Canada and the US since 2017. The CEO of the Bank, Dave McKay had earlier talked about asset tokenization. According to him, “We’re experimenting with taking an asset and breaking it into smaller pieces and registering that in a decentralized register called blockchain. You can take an asset or even a company and create a unit on a decentralized blockchain and then sell that into the marketplace.”

The Royal Bank of Canada isn’t the only Financial Institution that has applied for crypto-related patent. Goldman Sachs had earlier in July received a crypto settlement system. The Bank of America over the years has published several patents relating to crypto. Payment giants such as Visa and MasterCard also have been in the crypto-patent league

According to the report, the Bank didn’t answer the question on whether it would launch a cryptocurrency trading platform and when, if it plans to.

Singapore Shipping Association Warms up to Embrace Blockchain-based Ship Registration System

Published

on

A news report has it that there is a collaboration between the Singapore Shipping Association, the International Chamber of Commerce and the Singapore startup called Perlin to develop what has been dubbed the International E-Registry of Ships (IERS) which they believed has the ability to minimize time, costs as well as the occurrence of errors in the process of ship registration.

 

Since Singapore is undoubtedly is the fifth-largest registry in the world with a fleet of around 4,500 ships, there would be a to restructure the process of registration, which would enhance performance and improve procedures. In this regard, the three organizations have opined that the new arrangements could improve the productivity of the ship-registration process for the Singapore flag, which is currently done via the Marinet web portal. The organizations are also of the opinion that embracing the blockchain-based method could benefit other ship registries that are using manual and paper-based processes.

 

According to the report, Perlin’s wavelet will be used to power the IERS and which if the implementation is successful, the ICC after urging for global adoption among its international network of members and affiliated Chambers, will also give a useful hand in submitting the IERS in all the government tenders.

John Denton, the secretary-general of ICC has been reported to say that their goal for working with Perlin is for the IERS which are  built-in Singapore (making Singapore the world’s first blockchain shipping registry solution) to be shown and adopted globally to help power the next 100 years of shipping-based trade across all industries,

 

In all, this development is going to be supported by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore. They will back this remarkable initiative by sharing the IERS ship-registration process and exploring an open Application Programming Interface in the registration process.
