12 Peers Capital Markets Purchases DigitalBits XDB Token

Published

on

12 Peers Capital Markets , a broker-dealer and capital markets firm has announced its support for DigitalBits, a blockchain protocol focused on consumer digital assets such as loyalty points, rewards, and branded stablecoins.  The traditional market brokerage firm has purchased the DigitalBits XDB token, after recently announcing “a new found investment thesis focused on identifying blockchain projects that improve efficiencies across global markets,” it said in today’s announcement.

DigitalBits is an enterprise-grade blockchain protocol for supporting consumer digital assets, specifically branded currencies.  The company believes that branded currencies play an integral role in driving consumer behavior, but many of these programs are dated by today’s technological standards.  “These limitations have stifled value transfer, resulting in the accumulation of large amounts of idle capital – in 2017 US corporations held in excess of $100 billion in unused points liability,” the DigitalBits experts explain.  

The DigitalBits blockchain supports tokenization of existing and new consumer digital assets.  The XDB Foundation, which was formed earlier this year, is a neutral agnostic non-profit organization to enhance the DigitalBits blockchain and ecosystem, engage partnerships and building a robust ecosystem for users. Commenting on the 12 Peers Capital Market announcement, XDB Foundation’s Managing Director Michael Gord said that it is great to see traditional firms show interest in blockchain technology.  “This latest purchase by 12 Peers Capital Markets reaffirms strong institutional interest in, and support for branded stablecoins,” said Gord.

Founder and EVP of 12 Peers Capital Markets Gordon Ferguson said that the company is excited to support the DigitalBits Project’s ecosystem and branded currency initiatives, including branded stablecoins. “The void for more immersive brand-to-consumer experiences continues to widen, creating a tremendous opportunity for blockchain technology and branded stablecoins to enhance the engagement between brands and consumers,” he said.

12 Peers Capital Markets, Ltd. is a broker-dealer incorporated in the Cayman Islands and registered with the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA). The firm provides professional advisory and investment management services related to fixed income securities, structured notes and alternative investments for high net worth individuals and institutional investors.

Boca Raton, Florida, 27th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

Collaborating with Other Cryptocurrencies, META 1 Tackles Injustice and Human Rights 

META 1 Coin Trust has announced plans to identify, research and document instances of governmental overreach in cryptocurrency cases globally, as part of its ongoing efforts to advance human rights and individual freedom. 

According to Robert P. Dunlap, Executive Trustee of META 1 Coin Trust, “The malicious attacks on crypto projects globally by overzealous government agencies must be documented and publicized to protect the individual liberties of META 1 Coin holders, as well as issuers and holders of other cryptocurrencies.” He added, “The decentralized, non-jurisdictional reality of crypto has left government agencies often unable to fully litigate cases and the general public should not have to continue suffering due to excessive overreach as agencies clamor to save face.”

META 1 Coin Trust is led by Robert P. Dunlap and Nicole Bowdler, who are both committed to pushing back against unimpeded global persecution of cryptocurrencies. By calling attention to years of organized efforts by government agencies to specifically target cryptocurrency projects, their hope is that the public will see and demand an end to these unjust violations of individual liberty. 

Specific grievances which motivated this initiative include grave concerns over government agencies’ obstruction of individuals’ livelihoods, defamation of character, and libelous false accusations which could tarnish the names of individuals for years to come, long after legal actions…

Chainwire Launches Blockchain-Focused Automated Press Release Distribution Service

TEL AVIV, Israel, 13th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

MarketAcross, a world leader in blockchain public relations and marketing services, is pleased to announce the launch of Chainwire, an automated press release distribution service which provides guaranteed coverage and in-depth reports. Chainwire will be a one-stop-shop for the distribution of press releases in the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector. The launch marks the first time that advertisers can reach leading publications in the crypto media with the click of a button. 

While most industries have some kind of PR newswire service, the cryptocurrency sector has become a victim of its own rapid pace of growth over recent years. Since the ICO boom of 2017, there has been a proliferation of blockchain and crypto-focused projects, exchanges, investment firms, and marketing agencies, along with niche news and informational content sites. 

However, the infrastructure to connect this complex ecosystem has been slow to come up to speed, meaning that existing newswire services don’t reach their target audience. It’s estimated that one in five people own cryptocurrencies, so there is currently a significant missed opportunity to reach a massive global readership. 

As a newswire service dedicated to the crypto and blockchain space, Chainwire aims to address this gap. Press releases are distributed to leading publications, offering guaranteed coverage to reach audiences worldwide. The system is integrated with publishers and blogs, enabling accurate reporting via a user-friendly dashboard. It also…
