Johnny Depp and Ierovino begin their partnership with Waiting for the Barbarians, a novel adaptation by Penguin. The film is scheduled to begin shooting in Morocco later this month and will be produced by AMBI. Depp expressed his delight in collaborating with TaTaTu saying, “In this era of democratized entertainment, I admire the imaginative ethos of Andrea and look forward to collaborating together in a liberating, progressive manner that will befit the principals of our respective entities.”

TaTaTu rewards users with TTU token for watching and sharing media content on their platform. The company recently launched a new beta version of its service. Although the platform only offers films produced for TaTaTu on its movie selection. The firm launched just six months ago and was able to raise more than $500M over the summer with its token pre-sale.

Ierovino explained the firm’s choice of Johnny Depp saying, “Johnny has the ability to conceptualize material in a way that few can, and is unburdened of conventional industry formulas that dictate the projects that get made, traditionally. As we make strides to embrace disruptiveness, Johnny will be a key collaborator with us and we are tremendously excited to back his visions and instincts on stories to bring to life.”

Swiss developer Sirin Labs will fuse popularly known cryptocurrency interface MyEtherWallet (MEW) in its Finney blockchain smartphone, this was confirmed by the company on social media on March 21.

Sirin Labs, which released Finney late last year will now enable MyEtherWallet users to buy the device via the latter’s cell and web interface. Also, MEW will attribute as the go-to wallet interface for Finney customers.

SPRING LABS; A BLOCKCHAIN START UP PROPOSES LOAN SYSTEMS THAT WILL ELIMINATE CREDIT BUREAUS

Published

on

The year brings forth great news despite the currently trending news on price nose dive in the  crypto market. Amongst many, is the great research and recent discovery of new ways financial systems can best provide loans. In clearer terms, it would soon be very possible to carry out loan transactions with your bank directly without the banks having to deal with credit bureaus and any other third-party entity.

According to bloomberg, Spring labs is testing a decentralized peer-to-peer model built from partnership with 16 lenders and Fintech firms, some of which are SoFi, OnDeckCapital and Avant.

The present situation is that banks give out the data of their customers to credit bureaus for free and then have to buy it back as credit reports from these credit bureaus simply because they cannot carry out credit checks as stipulated under current regulatory and competition frameworks. Thus, banks definitely have to deal with third-parties such as Equifax Inc and Experian Plc to disburse loans.

In an interview, Adam Jiwan the CEO of Spring Labs said that the blockchain and its open ledger system would help run the verification processes which the credit bureaus once did. This statement was backed up by the unanimous decision of interest from the 16 lenders lenders who would love to see the peer-to-peer system, which cuts off all third-parties launch successfully.

It is no news that Blockchain can solve a lot of issues for corporate entities if and only if these corporations can identify the use case to which to apply the technology and most importantly if these corporate bodies are going to open their doors to possible partnership with experts in the field, though Spring labs have set the ball rolling.

The technology to be tested uses a “tripple-blind” method of information sharing where nothing relating to the identities of both parties (lender and customer) is made public and at the same time, Spring labs would have no form of access to the information being shared. “This would be made possible by the combined use of cryptography, blockchain and privacy enabling technology”, Jiwan said.

Some incentives in form of digital asset, would be made available to customers so as to get them to provide their information. In the CEO’s words; “ the goal is to pay customers for sharing their information with the native digital asset”.

Furthermore, spring labs intends to drastically reduce fraud with this new model. Also, crowd-sourcing would be the new method of building clientele for banks offering loans instead of just limited exchange between banks and the credit bureaus.

The tests are already ongoing and the launch date for the information sharing and anti-fraud services are slated to be due in the first half of 2019.

Spring labs, has its offices at Chicago and Los Angeles and is advised by former Goldman Sachs president Gary Cohn.

Do you think Spring Labs can pull this off against credit bureau giants like Equifax Inc? Would the Government be in support of this? Share your opinion with us in the comment section below.
