New York City, NY, 2020-Sep-15 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — A custom software development company PixelPlex informed about completing their work on Qtum Wallet – a cryptocurrency mobile wallet for Android and iOS. The wallet is able to execute multi-currency transactions and has ERC20 token support, smart contact builder, and advanced security features.
The Qtum development goals
The company shared the details about their new project – Qtum mobile wallet for Android and IOS. Their goal was to build a secure user-friendly wallet for the Qtum blockchain platform with all necessary capabilities such as Touch ID, 2FA protection, and transaction templates. UI/UX design for Android and iOS was used for simple navigation. High security was provided by Shamir’s secret encryption and iOS Secure Enclave & Android KeyStore support.
The developers commented on how exactly they managed to achieve such high security in their cryptocurrency wallet development. With the implemented client-side encryption, the Qtum mobile wallet encodes private keys and all transaction data on the client’s mobile device. The user account, private keys, and all transactions are secured before any information reaches a third-party server. The wallet app is also backed with 2-factor authentication, PIN protection, an auto-lock feature, and Touch ID / Face ID biometric authentication.
Important features for performing crypto operations
Mobile wallet development was a complex task, and in the end, Qtum wallet included all the essential features for performing crypto transactions. The wallet is integrated with the top exchanges for crypto trading, works with multiple currencies, includes support for cold-storage account recovery, QR codes leading to a payment widget, and has NFC support to streamline payments. The client will also get notifications about completed transactions and exchange rate changes.
As a result, Qtum wallet from PixelPlex became an easy-to-use, but yet a powerful tool for multicurrency management and tamper-proof peer-to-peer transactions.
Baltimore, MD, 2020-Aug-28 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — CoapTech LLC (Baltimore, MD), a leading medical device start-up pioneering the world’s first and only ultrasound-based feeding tube placement system, announced today the closing of a Series B investment of $7 million led by Palo Alto-based medical device venture capital firm Hunniwell Lake Ventures. The financing will be used to fund CoapTech’s commercialization of its FDA-cleared PUMA-G System.
By simplifying gastrostomy procedures to the point where they can be conducted at the patient’s bedside with ultrasound, hospitals using PUMA-G benefit by freeing up surgical suites and personnel resources for COVID and other clinical priorities, minimizing cross-contamination, and improving efficiencies in care.
CoapTech was founded by critical care physician Dr. Steven Tropello and clinical innovation researcher Howard Carolan, to reduce unnecessary delays, harm, and costs for feeding tube placement, a vital therapy for millions of patients each year around the world.
Howard Carolan, CEO and Co-Founder, states: “We have been receiving fantastic feedback from hospitals in our initial launch program, which are using the PUMA-G System to revolutionize feeding tube placement. By using ultrasound at the patient bedside, rather than the conventional approach of orchestrating expensive and inefficient consults, critical care physicians are completing these procedures in minutes, on the same shift a feeding tube is first indicated. We’re seeing early indications those efficiencies result in patients leaving the ICU sooner, which saves hospitals many thousands of dollars per admission. A substantial portion of this new funding is from physicians who have seen the device and believe it can become the new default method for feeding tube placement.”
Dr. Steven Tropello elaborates, “the PUMA-G System is proving itself ready for standard-of-care adoption for safe and timely gastrostomy tube placement. It is also proving a powerful approach in the fight against COVID, by completely eliminating transport of patients, team members, and reprocessed tools throughout the hospital in favor of a sterile, disposable, bedside solution. I am also very excited about other clinical applications of the PUMA platform we are developing and aim to have for patients in the near future.”
This Series B investment was led by Hunniwell Lake Ventures, a Palo Alto-based medical device venture capital firm.
Daniel Teo, Managing Partner at Hunniwell Lake Ventures, further states “Coaptech’s PUMA System has the potential to transform gastrostomy and many other surgical procedures by allowing them to be performed using ultrasound at the bedside, in hospitals, ambulatory centers, skilled nursing facilities, and LTACHs (Long-term Acute Care Hospitals). This also benefits patients by bringing the procedure closer to the Point-of-Demand (PoD) and giving them more options with a larger community of medical providers capable of performing the procedure.
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., United States, 20-Jul-2020 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — TABS Score™ has just deployed their newest addition to the suite of products available on their Diligence-as-a-Service (DaaS) platform – TABS | EU Assessment, (available in both Lite and Suite versions). The rollout was strategically timed to complement the rapidly increasing requests by TABS’ existing European (and those that focus on Europe as a market) customers, as there are quite a few differences in terms of rules, processes, and regulations that European ventures face differently than US-based startups. The new model entails the addition of several nested decision trees to augment the already-powerful nucleus of the Machine Learning algorithm, as well as a new ESG, regulatory, and analytics sections to properly address the differences between American and European resources, financing, policies, accounting practices and more. The EU version of the Assessment will mirror the US Assessment in functionality and output but will provide comparative analytics between them and their counterparts on the global market and allow companies to complete the Assessment in a language of their preference.
Mayflower Ventures, a micro-fund being formed by Wall Street Veteran Marshall Sterman, has already made the decision to integrate a Diligence-as-a-Service as part of their investment process which pitching to investors for the fund.
“Both the committed and prospective LPs love the fact that instead of asking for higher management fees to hire an analyst team in house, we are making smart lateral decisions to use a powerful software like TABS to strengthen and accompany our own internal diligence processes,” Sterman says.
As TABS expands to Europe and subsequently, their footprint across the globe, they will soon be modifying the assessment to meet the needs of ventures in other venture hotspots as well, the APAC region being the first. The comprehensiveness and ever-evolving nature of the TABS Score and its customizable solutions has made the Fin-Tech company one of the most sought-after Diligence-as-a-Service providers, with accolades coming from founders, investors, accelerators, and consultants (legal, accounting, fundraising, etc.)
TABS has already gained significant traction in the US markets, partially attributable to the Covid-19 virus and the cancellations of physical meetings. Engineered by successful serial entrepreneurs and veteran seed investors, the TABS Suite, which includes the TABS Score & Valuation assessment, has helped investors assess the viability of a business, significantly augmenting their diligence process in a fraction of the time and cost. Early-stage companies on the other hand increase the probability of attracting the attention of a potential investor by proactively going through the process.

Chicago, IL, 2020-Jun-1 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — Investing in Bitcoin (BTC) is now expensive, and getting your own through mining is nearly impossible for the average person. However, a new opportunity can be found in Bitcoin Proof of Stake.
BitcoinPoS: The Best of Bitcoin and PoS
Bitcoin Proof of Stake (BTP) was created by a team of developers that recognized the capabilities of the Bitcoin code and sought to improve them. They did this by replacing Bitcoin’s Proof of Work consensus protocol with Proof of Stake, resulting in a new and improved coin called BTP.
Proof of Work has proven that it is a less efficient protocol when compared to PoS, as it moves slower, cannot be easily scaled, and can favor centralization.
To improve upon the unique features of the Bitcoin code, the developers introduced Proof of Stake, thus creating a new coin, BTP, which challenges the boundaries of crypto functionality. If the Bitcoin core goes through an update, then BitcoinPoS will be immediately updated to include the new alterations.
The BitcoinPoS network can create no more than 21 million BTP. The new coins are generated not by mining, but through staking. The supply of BTP is managed from its protocol, which cuts the block reward once every 4 years by 25% every 700k blocks. BTC decreases with 50% of the reward every 4 years.
BitcoinPoS and Its Advantages
Mining is an energy-intensive process, as miners compete to be the first to solve the complex mathematical equations in order to get the block reward. In a Proof of Stake network, the stakers, or validators, can get new coins by keeping a number of BTP in an active wallet.
Due to its design, staking does not demand energy in high quantities, like in PoW systems. Most Bitcoin mining operations are now controlled by big companies, as only they have the capital to invest in many performant mining rigs. This leaves out regular people who cannot afford mining hardware, and thus the hashrate of the network becomes centralized, limited to only a few big mining farms. But with BTP, all users can stake coins, therefore, encouraging participation from more people and distribution of power throughout the network.
Resilience Against 51% Attacks
Centralization in PoW-based coins is an issue, as it leaves the network susceptible to a 51% attack, where one entity takes hold of 51% of the network hashrate. This person then has absolute power over the network and can manipulate transactions and block creation.
BitcoinPoS is resistant to 51% attacks, as the PoS protocol was designed to promote decentralization. BTP also uses a variation of the Proof of Stake model known as Mutualized Proof of Stake consensus, which is almost impossible to breach by an attacker, as it requires a lot of resources.
99% Reduction in Power Consumption
A PoS system does not need users to solve complex algorithms that are energy-consuming. This allows staking to be a more economical process of generating new BTP, using 99% less than Bitcoin mining.
Friendly to the Environment
All PoW mining operations are taxing on the environment because of its high energy consumption. Bitcoin PoS can function and issue new coins without the need for mining farms, and thus it is more eco-friendly.
Universally Accessible to Users
Setting up and managing a mining rig to mine Bitcoin is a big investment that not many people can afford. BTPs can be easily staked by all people, as a laptop or a personal computer is powerful enough to be used in staking.
Bitcoin Proof of Stake (BTP) allows all types of users to easily invest in a more efficient version of Bitcoin that carries with it all the perks of a PoS model.
LONDON, 31-Dec-2019 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — It seems only fitting that in a year filled with new product launches, new office openings and expansion across three continents, that Axiom Prepaid Holding’s CEO would grace the cover of Total Prestige Magazine’s January 2020 issue. After all, Steven Foster, a 40-something entrepreneur and banking industry veteran, has been at the helm of a company that has exceeded its growth expectations and then some, arguably vaulting the company to a leadership position in the prepaid card and app solutions arena. And Total Prestige profiles exceptional members of the business club of the same name, which is comprised of some of the world’s best-known business leaders as well as heads of start-ups and emerging businesses.
In 2017, Foster and his business partner, Steven P. Urry, set out to disrupt the banking industry with the launch of Axiom, which uses advanced digital tools to power prepaid Visa® and Mastercard® products, programs and services for consumers and businesses. They had one ambitious mission in mind: Simplify banking for all people – globally.
“We’d been firsthand witnesses from inside the banking industry to the significant shift in the availability of financial products. But it was notable to us that it was not carrying over to the prepaid space. No matter what country we visited, there was a gap in access to products engineered for the unbanked and global traveler. We decided to go all-in on launching a business that would turn the prepaid model upside down and give all consumers and businesses easy-to-use, digitally driven products and services,” said Foster.
That goal appears to have resonated broadly as this year alone, their enterprise:
• Expanded into Italy, Spain, Germany, France, Portugal, and Greece in Europe and grew the business in the Americas
• Entered the Asia-Pacific region
• Introduced brand- and revenue-building White Label Programs
• Rolled out hundreds of thousands of new prepaid cards, a plethora of new white label programs, including one that caters to the unique needs of millennials and Gen-Z
• Opened new offices in Romania
• Continued to invest in high-tech digital products to ensure the highest levels of intuitive, secure, compliant backend systems
As noted in the Total Prestige article, those accomplishments do not come without hard work and sacrifice. This year alone, Foster flew 725K miles for business and manages a workday that typically goes from 4 a.m. to 11 p.m.
“You can’t be an effective company leader if you aren’t in touch with your customers and employee teams. I meet them where they are to be sure I understand how their geography and culture may affect banking needs in each market. I try to give 150 percent every day so I can go to sleep knowing I did everything I promised and more for Axiom’s clients, my business partners and employees,” he said. “I have to spend a lot of time away from my wife and son so I want to be certain that the time I spend on-the-job truly counts.”
“I’m very honored to be chosen for this feature article but I am just one part of the much bigger Axiom story. There would be no article if the company was not accomplishing what it set out to do. That has only been possible through the collective efforts of the entire Axiom team and my partner and friend, Steve Urry – and we are just getting started,” said Foster.

New York, NY, USA, 2018-Jul-03 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — During last ten years, there were significant investments in the personal loans market. It was possible due to the inflow of capital and innovative technologies, which caused a doubling of the market.
Although, according to many financial websites, originations of personal loans are falling. It started with refusals to borrowers with a credit rating below 600, which didn’t take place since 2012.
Despite the decline in the origination of loans, all other data shows an increase of interest of the borrowers to this bank product.
The market for unsecured loans grew by 10.8% in 2017. And financial analytics are talking now about a great prospect for the development of this market segment.
According to statistics in 2017, 10% of respondents applied for a personal unsecured loan, a greater interest was shown to credit cards (65%) and auto loans (26%).
Banking CEOs are Concerned About FinTech
The lending market has a long history and now it is experiencing one of the most historical phases.
One of the biggest changes became a rapid development of FinTech (financial technologies).
Several years ago banks and other traditional financial structures were skeptical about online loans. Now 81% of banking CEOs are worried about such fast FinTech development.
Such concerns are reinforced by the fact that financial Internet structures have become quite competitive. Applying to a lender online, via a certain website connecting the customers with the direct service providers, the borrower gets a wide choice: unsecured personal loans, same day loans, debt consolidation etc. In addition to this sophisticated credit models and new anti-fraud mechanisms makes online financial services more attractive than banks.
The Most Popular Loans
According to the last statistic data, the most popular loan products are unsecured personal loans and installment loans. These loans are the most convenient and profitable for the borrowers. Same day payday loans are also popular, but they are most often used in urgent cases when money is needed for a short period of time. In such cases, 24/7 loans are more convenient, since it is easy to get and the money is being accrued to the bank account of a borrower in short period of time.
The thing that makes personal loans one of the most attractive types of financial products is its uniqueness. It can be used for any purpose: making a big purchase, paying for a wedding or vacation, etc. However, the most common reasons for obtaining a personal loan currently are:
Statistic data shows that the purpose of the loan doesn’t affect the chances of the borrower to get approved.
Summing up, the consumer credit market is experiencing rapid growth. Personal loans are attractive to the borrowers because of the affordable interest rate and quick receipt of funds. FinTech is developing and expanding, thus the number of lenders increases and the borrowers have a wide choice.
