MINDEX, GMEX Group, and HYBSE join forces to launch the first blockchain securities exchange in Mauritius

Published

on

Mauritius, London, 6th November 2018: We are pleased to announce the launch of the HYBSE International Marketplace; a joint venture between MINDEX Holdings Limited (MINDEX), GMEX Group Limited (GMEX) and Hybrid Stock Exchange Corporation Limited (HYBSE); that will bring to market a revolutionary blockchain exchange platform, based in Mauritius.

MINDEX; a complete exchange, post trade and physical infrastructure, facilitating a variety of asset classes to be traded in Mauritius, supported by GMEX; a world leader in digital business and technology solutions for exchange and post trade operators, will partner with HYBSE; a global online marketplace based on blockchain technology that is part of the DIM-Ecosystem.[1]

The HYBSE International Marketplace will integrate blockchain solutions and technology with traditional financial industries providing a complete and governed ecosystem that digitalizes assets onto the blockchain. This partnership will for the first time, enable institutional investors access to cryptocurrency ETF’s and other crypto-instruments.

The following asset classes will be facilitated for trade in a digital tokenized format:

  • Cryptonized Shares
  • Cryptonized Currencies
  • Commodities
  • Indices
  • Forex
  • ETC’s (Exchange-Traded Commodities)
  • ETF’s (Exchange-Traded Funds)
  • CETF’s (Crypto Exchange Traded Funds)

SMEs will be able to use the HYBSE International Marketplace to seek capital by launching an Initial Blockshare Offering (IBO); a time-limited offer to purchase cryptonized-equities and other cryptonized-instruments, such as blockshares, from businesses registered on the HYBSE International Marketplace at special discounted rates. This will provide opportunities for the unbanked (more than 1.7 billion worldwide) to participate in the listing and trading of stocks.

The parties have chosen to set up the HYBSE International Marketplace in Mauritius further to the recent announcement that the Financial Services Commission (FSC), the local regulator, will create new licensable activities for the Custodian of Digital Assets and Digital Asset Marketplace and provide a regulated environment for the exchange and safe custody of digital assets. The regulator in Mauritius has also issued guidelines on investment in cryptocurrency as a digital asset.

Hirander Misra, Chairman of MINDEX and CEO of GMEX Group commented: “I am delighted to announce this exciting joint venture, where HYBSE will bring its vast domain knowledge, securities to be tokenised and its blockchain-based digital exchange technology and MINDEX, supported by GMEX, will provide scalable institutional grade digital trading platforms and business and operational expertise to set up the new marketplace.”

He added, “We welcome the new regulatory framework for digital assets in Mauritius and we are thrilled to be at the forefront of market development as one of the first ventures to set up under the new regime. We are firmly convinced that there is a massive opportunity for Mauritius to position itself as a major global hub in this dynamic space underpinned by strong governance and regulation to ensure trust”.

Daniel Liu of Hybrid Stock Exchange Corporation Limited (HYBSE) commented “The new venture between the three companies will bring about an exciting new development, not only for the crypto sphere, but global capital markets as a whole. As we embark on a journey to pave a previous uncharted way forward, this will inevitably create an ideal prospect to move the evolution of all financial systems, light-years ahead. We must also maintain a conscious belief of the power of this evolutionary step, as not to disrupt current global markets, but to rather bolster a new way of thinking that encompasses a decentralised and truly free market entity.”

HYBSE International Marketplace will apply for a Digital Marketplace license and operations are due to commence in Q1 2019 subject to regulatory approval.

WordPress Is Launching A Publishing Platform With Blockchain Features

One of the leading online content management systems and the platform behind more than 40% of the websites out there, WordPress, has decided to launch a new publishing platform backed by Google and the Ethereum development studio ConsenSys among other partners. The platform is in the latest cryptocurrency news only because it has blockchain tools in it. Announced on Monday, the new product - called Newspack - is described as an "inexpensive" platform that offers technology and support for small as well as medium-sized news organizations. Google was the main backer with a $1.2 million investment, while ConsenSys contributed with $350,000. The Lenfest Institute for Journalism and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation also took part in the investments, giving $400,000 and $250,000 respectively. A ConsenSys rep confirmed the investment yesterday, adding that newsrooms accessing Newspack will be offered the option to use blockchain based features made available through ConsenSys and its partner Civil Media. “The plugin will also act as a portal that will walk newsrooms through how to join the Civil Registry, the hub of community-vetted and -approved newsrooms,”  the rep added, saying that the plugin will also offer access to a "discovery portal" for consumers seeking news. Even though Civil was known for having some issues such as a failed token-based fundraiser which had to be relaunched, it apparently assisted a news site in archiving its entire article base on the Ethereum blockchain in December last year.

WWF Australia Launches A Blockchain Supply Tool That Allows Food Tracking

The World Wildlife Fund - Australia (WWF-Australia) has officially announced the launch of a supply chain tool that uses blockchain in order to allow businesses and consumers to track food in a new way. This cryptocurrency news was first echoed in a tweet today (January 17th) in which WWF announced the platform, dubbed OpenSC, as a product of a partnership between WWF and BCG Digital Ventures (BCGDV) which is a global corporate venture, investment and incubation arm of the US-based Boston Consulting Group. As one post on the WWF site unveils, the system will allow businesses to track products that they produce - but also consumers to view the origins of said products through a "unique blockchain code at the product's point of origin." The platform is designed to distribute QR codes to products made by client corporations signing up to the scheme, which are later linked to a blockchain platform and allow consumers to check the origins and lifecycle of any specific product. The aim is to empower consumers with the knowledge of exactly what they are buying as they purposely make an ethical choice. As the CEO of WWF Australia commented in an accompanying press release:
“Through OpenSC, we will have a whole new level of transparency about whether the food we eat is contributing to environmental degradation of habitats and species, as well as social injustice and human rights issues such as slavery.”
Open-SC will reportedly start operating at the World Economic Forum event in Davos, where it will be presented to world leaders. In the future, the plan is to extend beyond food to tackle areas as diverse as palm oil and timber, according to Reuters.

Ford’s Plan To Fight Child Labor With Blockchain

The automotive giant Ford is in the featured news on our DC Forecasts crypto news site today - mainly for its plan to fight child labor with blockchain. One of the oldest car manufacturers out there has recently entered a partnership with IBM, Huayou Cobalt and LG Chem in order to build a blockchain platform that will monitor the supply of cobalt from the Democratic Republic of Congo as part of a new attempt that will see Ford ensuring that no child labor makes part of its supply chain. First announced on Wednesday, this project will be managed by the global responsible-sourcing consultant RCS Group - and will use IBM's proprietary blockchain platform to monitor the cobalt supplies that are used in the production of lithium-ion batteries. In times when other primary production industries are tapping into blockchain technology as a potential solution for effective supply chain tracking, Ford is definitely interested in tracking metals but has a problem with child labor which is being tackled with the deployment of blockchain technology. What's also important to note are the many challenges for tracking metals. Speaking of, they present an altogether different challenge for the monitoring project because they are often smelted together, at which point it becomes almost impossible to identify what came from where. However, the main challenge that Ford is ready to solve is the one posed by artisanal miners and unregistered local panhandlers using children for labor - mainly dealt with by bringing them into a blockchain network of validated participants so that the labor is transparent and everyone can see where cobalt supplies are coming from.

16% Of The Biggest Crypto Exchanges Got Rated A Or A-

According to the latest Exchange Security Report conducted by the ICORating analysts, 16% of all the major crypto exchanges in the world got rated with A or A- but surprisingly enough neither of them got rated A+. Let’s find out why in the latest blockchain news below. The report shows that Kraken and Robinhood were rated A, and Poloniex was rated A- as top three most secure trading platforms worldwide. More than 135 crypto trading platforms were assessed which their daily trade value exceeds $100,000. They were rated for registrar and domain security, web security, DoS attack protection, and user account security. More than 50 percent of the exchanges got rated with B+ or B- and the remaining with C- or C+. There was not a single exchange that got A+. All of the categories were divided into sub-categories for more transparency. For example, for the user security category, password security and two-factor authentication were assessed where only 22 percent met all the criteria. For domain and registrar security, the sub-categories consisted of six-month expiration window for the high-profile domains and only 3 percent satisfied the criteria. All of the exchanges turned out to be protected from MITM attacks and Heartbleed attacks and 37 percent of the exchanges were found to be using HSTS header. ICORating’s data shows that Coinbase PRO has A- rating on number nine, BitMEX on the fourth position with A- and HitBTC ranking 13th with A-. On the other hand, Binance which is the world’s largest exchange by daily trade volumes was ranked 34th with B+ and Gemini was ranked 84th with B-.
