Pirates of the Caribbean superstar, Johnny  Depp will be teaming up with an Ethereum based entertainment streaming platform that utilises TTU token economics, TaTaTu. Hollywood Reporter revealed that the film star will team up with TaTaTu to “bring stories to life.” Depp will be working with TaTaTu to produce both film and digital content for the platform under his company name Infinitum Nihil which has films such as Dark Shadows, the Lone Ranger reboot and Hugo under its belt.

TaTaTu is owned by Andrea Iervolino who is a producer and entrepreneur and also  runs AMBI media group and Monika Bacardi. 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.”

Jumia Partners with Blockchain Based Company to Provide Better Service

Published

on

The face of e-commerce in Africa is about to experience a dramatic change. All thanks to a collaboration between Japan-based blockchain telecoms platform provider, Telcoin and top online e-commerce marketplace, Jumia. The partnership was born out of a need to increase the quantity and quality of goods and services purchased on Jumia’s platform. The e-commerce company with a presence in over 15 African countries is seeking to tap into the blockchain technology to deliver efficient services to customers.

The duo will be kick-starting with a  partnership that will commence in Nigeria. The West African country seems to be a hub for e-commerce and the partnership will help Jumia add value to its cross-border transactions. Ms Lee-Ann Cassie, the Head of Africa for Telcoin explained that the firm would be working to increase the sales traffic and transactions from Nigerians in the Diaspora as well as increasing and adding value to e-commerce transactions within the country.

Telcoin is focused on creating a mobile cryptocurrency solution that would connect with global mobile networks and enable the ease of converting cash on mobile money, prepaid credit, and post-paid billing platforms. Telcoin aims to utilise existing mobile network providers, to give people access to needed financial services that include e-commerce, online remittances and payments.

The Chief Executive Officer for Jumia Nigeria, Mrs Juliet Anammah explained the partnership saying: “We’re excited, to say the least, about our partnership with Telcoin, because we believe this will have a huge impact on our commitment to improving the lives of Africans through the internet, helping them to save time and money. She also explained that the firm aims to provide services to Nigerians in the Diaspora who want to convert their digital currency to shopping vouchers on their platform.  She added, “We rely on and trust Telcoin to facilitate the currency conversion since digital currency is, in the interim, not a payment method on Jumia.”

Huobi Global Meets Gemini Co-founders to Discuss Global Synergy

Published

on

Bridging the gap between crypto communities is very important in the cryptosphere. This has lead two leading cryptocurrency exchange operators to discuss on global synergy. The CEO of Huobi Group Leon Li and COO Robin Zhu recently met with Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss Co- Founders of Gemini in Beijing on November 7th. The two operators discussed on constructing a bridge connecting crypto communities in the east and west.

The two prominent operators were also keen on stablecoins and building a flatter global economy. Leon explained the aim of the meeting saying, “Huobi wants to build a bridge between the US and China in the crypto space.” He added, “There are a lot of good digital assets and products around the world, especially in America, and we want to bring them to China. We also plan to bring more awareness about Huobi’s digital assets and financial services in
China to the world.” Leon is also hopeful that there would be further cooperation between Huobi and Gemini.

The Gemini Dollar (GUSD) was incorporated by the Huobi Group last month. Leon and Robin were impressed by GUSD’s stability and its advantages as a stablecoin. The two party run prominent international exchanges and explained the benefit of listing GUSD within HUSD to millions of Huobi Global and Huobi Cloud traders. Huobi has also incorporated True USD (TUSD), Paxos Standard Token (PAX) and USD Coin (USDC) into its stable coin solution, HUSD. The parties spoke on how listing GUSD within HUSD allows millions of Huobi Global and Huobi Cloud traders exposure to it.

Huobi is the world’s fourth largest crypto exchange and a synergy with Gemini will create a bridge for U.S residents to gain access to Huobi’s products. Companies can open their exchange based on Huobi’s model called the Huobi cloud. U.S. residents can also gain access to Huobi’s OTC for over the counter trades.

More traders in the West are yearning for discounted transaction fees, this synergy between Huobi and Gemini will offer the Western markets reduced transaction fees with Huobi’s OTC or Huobi PRO.
