Cryptocurrencies have received increasing interest from different corners of the world, but one question that often remains unanswered is what can people do with cryptocurrencies? Fliqpay answers this question via its cryptocurrency payment gateway- as its solution allows businesses to accept cryptocurrency as payment for their products or services.

Fliqpay’s solution is interesting because it eliminates the concern of price fluctuation that many businesses have with receiving payment in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. These businesses are settled in their local currency instantly. Its solution also cuts regular transaction fees by about 60% and offers zero chargebacks.

Fliqpay is launching its payments gateway with support for 5 local currencies including Nigerian Naira, Kenyan Shillings, Ghanaian Cedis, and South African Rand.

With the launch of its payment gateway, businesses in Africa can integrate Fliqpay’s API and accept cryptocurrencies as payment. Available cryptocurrencies that businesses can accept include; Bitcoin, US Dollar Tether (USDT), Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple’s XRP.

According to the Chief Executive Officer of Fliqpay, Wole Ayodele, “our solution is aimed at helping African businesses to expand where they can do business. From the entrepreneur that makes handmade Ankara bags in Lagos, Nigeria to the freelance graphics designer in Mombasa, Kenya, we view ourselves as a facilitator in driving business growth for African entrepreneurs and companies.”

Prior to its public launch, Fliqpay had done over $12m in transaction volume.

Fliqpay is part of the Techstars network and was recently one of 10 startups to receive $1.2 million in seed funding from the American startup accelerator.

Fliqpay recently also announced a partnership with a blockchain company, Conflux. The partnership would allow Fliqpay to leverage Conflux’s state of the art blockchain to ensure faster payment processing. As well as a cheaper settlement for cross-border transactions.

This Blockchain Startup Wants to Help Users to Accelerate Wealth Creation Using Their Unique Offerings

Published

on

OroPocket

Blockchain Startup OroPocket is working towards enabling users to create wealth by bridging the gap between physical assets and DeFi.

OroPocket’s conception goes back to the Reserve Bank of India’s prohibition of facilitation of cryptocurrency transactions in Indian banks nearly immediately in 2018. This essentially signaled the beginning of the bearish ‘crypto winter,’ in which blockchain and crypto companies struggled to go ahead.

OroPocket LogoCo-Founded by Tarusha Mittal with Mohit Madan after the realisation to develop financial software that logged transactions on blockchain. This was the impetus behind Delhi-based Oropocket, a company that enables users to diversify their portfolios beyond conventional assets by investing in digital commodities such as digital gold and silver. Furthermore, it offers financial services to users on top of these investments, assisting with the liquidation of the assets.

As the world is starting to open up towards investing in digital assets, OroPocket is working towards meeting the increased demand from users wanting to explore new wealth creation opportunities.

OroPocket is a fast, simple-to-use online platform that enables access to digital assets on the go. Customers may invest in digital gold or silver, where they own the assets but do not have physical possession of them. The 45-person company keeps gold and silver reserves, which are distributed to users when they buy them online. Ethereum, Tezos, and Polygon blockchains all record ownership and future transactions. Users may spend, purchase, or execute UPI transactions that are backed by these assets. As a result, there is a guarantee that digital gold and silver are extremely liquid.

OroPocket received a $2 million investment in early 2021 from AU21 Capital, LD Capital, Rarestone Capital, Morningstar Ventures, NGC Capital, Alphabit, Moonwhale Ventures, Acheron Capital, Zokyo Ventures, and others.

According to Tarusha, they, like other blockchains, record transactions in secure, public ledgers, giving consumers peace of mind regarding the security of their assets. “When these transactions are recorded on blockchain, everyone can see them, resulting in greater transparency and security. With the introduction of Layer 2 scaling solutions like Polygon and Ethereum 2.0, the procedure becomes even easier owing to low gas costs (transaction fees),” she says.

OroPocket promises that its asset-backed banking services on blockchain (which are decentralised) are free of hidden fees and time-consuming procedures associated with conventional banks (which are centralised entities). The company earns money by collecting a 0.25 percent transaction charge on these transactions.

It also earns money from two other products, OpenDefi and UniFarm, which are part of the broader OroPocket family. “OpenDefi is a decentralised finance (DeFi) solution that combines real and synthetic assets (tokenised derivatives). The backend in this case operates on P2P (peer-to-peer) networks. We charge transaction fees to consumers as well as integration fees to developers that build on top of our protocol,” Tarusha says.

UniFarm enables users to bet their cryptocurrency holdings and earn up to a 250 percent yearly percentage return (APY). It is a farming approach in which blockchain projects collaborate to form a reward pool. Users may stake any token and get numerous tokens in exchange. Staking crypto is a procedure in which crypto assets are committed to maintain blockchain networks and validate transactions. The company does not charge users in the UniFarm concept, but rather the projects and blockchain networks that are connected.

Recently OroPocket has launched Auto-Invest Plan (AIP) with tokenised gold & silver, where users can start small by investing as little as ₹100 per day and have full access to their money. They can withdraw via UPI anytime, anywhere without incurring any fees. With one tap deposit, users can deposit INR in their wallet using OroPocket’s payment gateway. Money will be automatically invested every month (or the set frequency). It is a cakewalk to redeem your assets at maturity, you just have to sell your assets and redeem them from your wallet directly to your bank account at the time of maturity.

​​While there are many alternative DeFi solutions and crypto-backed yield farming protocols available worldwide, OroPocket says that it has no overall rivals with its product line. It is presently working on obtaining an NBFC license in order to offer lending services to customers as it seeks to create a comprehensive financial ecosystem for the crypto and DeFi sector.

OroPocket gold and silver tokens are the latest entry in the asset-backed crypto tokens space. Users can also withdraw their holdings to any ERC20 compatible Ethereum wallet. Since the assets are tokenised, they can be instantly transferred to any user across the globe even if that user is not on OroPocket, or even if that user does not have a bank account. Exchange your existing crypto with $ORO here.

South African Users Can Now Mine RENEC Token for Free on Remitano

Published

on

Mine RENEC

Global peer-to-peer crypto exchange Remitano is currently developing its native token, RENEC, to improve the quality of services delivered to customers, reduce transaction fees and ensure secure and swift transactions. While Remitano Network is still in the development phase, Remitano has provided an amazing opportunity for old and new Remitano users in South Africa to earn FREE RENEC via a mining program.

What is RENEC?

RENEC is an abbreviation of Remitano Network Coin. It is the token of the Remitano network, a blockchain designed to facilitate quick transactions at a reduced fee, a fast decentralized exchange with efficient escrow in place. The launch of the RENEC token was announced on June 30th, 2021.

What makes RENEC different?

Remitano Network is not a single blockchain, rather it is a set of blockchains. The initial network will be a simple value transfer one, similar to Bitcoin, Litecoin but with faster block time and more efficient consensus protocol. At this stage, RENEC will be called Remitano Electronic Cash.

RENEC will also be the base currency for the Token Decentralized Exchange and the decentralized fiat-token escrow that will be built on the Remitano Network. With RENEC, crypto swap and P2P trading fees will become cheaper.

Remitano commits to deliver the first 3 products for the Remitano Network as follows:

1. Low fee decentralized P2P electronic cash with Multisig capability

2. Low fee decentralized tokens exchange

3. Low fee decentralized escrow service

After that, remitano.com will work closely with the community in order to build other blockchain products.

The Remitano Network is designed to be scalable, therefore, new products will be built on it, consequently increasing the value of RENEC.

Check out the Official RENEC whitepaper to learn more about this token.

How to own RENEC?

Because Remitano holds its investors and traders in high esteem while also reducing risk, Remitano will not hold any ICO for RENEC. It is different from other ICO’s where investors will have to pay ETH or BTC to secure a specific amount of the coin. Instead, RENEC will be given out freely to both new and old Remitano users in South Africa and other countries through mining.

For now, Remitano only allows mining through the Remitano mobile application. So you need to Install Remitano App and begin mining RENEC at the tap of a button.

4 easy steps to mine RENEC

1. Download the Remitano app on PlayStore and AppStore.

2. Register or log in to the app

3. From the list of menu that is displayed, click on “Mining RENEC”. This should take you to the mining page.

Users must have registered an account with Remitano and verified their phone number to be eligible to mine RENEC. Mining RENEC is not automated so once you already have the app you have to log in to your account every day to mine RENEC.

A user can mine up to 0.02 RENEC per hour depending on the level of verification. Complete up to level 2 of verification to increase your mining power. You can also boost your RENEC rewards through Remitano referral. When your referrals mine successfully, you earn 20% of their mined RENEC.

Check out the definitive guide of the RENEC token.

Remitano will continue to build products on the RENEC network. This will give RENEC a lot of utility and usage. Also, the fact that Remitano is a very popular escrowed P2P cryptocurrency exchange in multiple countries across the world, with time, the value of RENEC is likely to increase which is why you should try and get the token now that it is free.
