One billion tokens readily available for purchase.

ARKANSAS– Walmart Inc. is pleased to announce the development of a new blockchain service WalmartLeaf.com, the decentralized financial asset management network, to realize the world’s most reliable retail money transfer system and the ability to finalize transactions in less than 2 seconds. Suppliers will transition ecommerce payments from cash to digital on the Ethereum network in the form of ERC20 Tokens. By combining WalmartLabs payments business expertise with advanced blockchain technology implemented on the WalmartProjects platform, the aim is to offer a new retail payment network service from fiscal year 2019 compatible with IoT and other new technologies.

Blockchain has been attracting attention in the past few years due to its potential to strengthen protection against falsification of transactions and drastically lower costs.  Many financial institutions around the world have partnered with IT firms to test various proof of concept designs. In this environment, Walmart Inc. has engaged in numerous collaborative research projects with VISA, focusing on VISA’s high-speed network and distributed computing technology.

Presale of the Walmart Leaf Tokens (WAL) will begin October 2018 will last until 75% (750,000,000 WAL) are distributed and 25% (250,000,000) is retained for sale to Walmart retailers. In total 1,000,000,000 WAL tokens are assigned. Purchasers from the presale will receive an email to claim their tokens within a few days.

Walmart Leaf has partnered with several top-tier cryptocurrency exchanges including Binance, Huobi, Poloniex, and Bitfinex. Once the distribution is complete, tokens will be available for trade using those platforms.

The new payment network will be a diverse payment service equipped with an interface that can be used as a communications network to track products, and including functions for the transfer and management of value through blockchain. This will allow for a significant reduction of transaction costs for all kinds of payment services and could support a large expansion in transaction numbers.

Intending to invest in a residential or commercial property in Singapore?  

When it comes to foreigners applying for a loan in Singapore, things can be pretty hard regardless of the reason whether you need the property for personal or business purposes.  

In Singapore, buying a property is challenging, whether you are a foreigner or a native, and sometimes applying for a loan is the only way for you to afford it.  

HOW MUCH CAN YOU BORROW FOR A PROPERTY LOAN IN SINGAPORE? 

As for the Foreigner Loans, in Singapore, there is an exact amount of money you can borrow to finance the purchase of a property.  

In this sense, Singapore has the Loan to Value Ratio (LTV).  

The LTV ratio is what determines the exact amount of money you can borrow for a property loan, which changes depending on where you try to obtain the loan:  

  • If you are applying for a bank loan, you can borrow a maximum of 75% of the value of the property you want to purchase. That means if you are looking for a property that costs $500.000, the maximum amount of money a bank lender can give you like a loan in Singapore is going to be $375.000.
