MT PELERIN LAUNCHES CRYPTO INVESTMENT WITH ZERO FEES

Published

on

Starting today, Swiss fintech Mt Pelerin allows the users of its mobile app Bridge Wallet to buy and sell cryptocurrencies at the market rates, without any additional cost.

As the past months have shown, the public’s interest for Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies as a legitimate investment is growing and here to stay, a phenomenon boosted by the adoption of large corporations and financial institutions.
However, getting started remains tricky for most as the majority of available services are difficult to use and not always transparent on their actual costs, hidden fees and unfavorable exchange rates.
With its mobile app Bridge Wallet, Mt Pelerin brings a radical solution by letting its users buy and sell cryptocurrencies straight from their bank account at the actual market rates, with no other costs. With a simple and user-friendly design, Bridge Wallet allows to enjoy the market prices that you would get on a centralized trading platform, while preserving full control and ownership of your crypto.
“As its name suggests, the purpose of our app is to bridge your bank account with the crypto world in the easiest way.” says Arnaud Salomon, founder and CEO of Mt Pelerin. “With the real market prices and the self-sovereignty features of cryptocurrencies, you get the best of both worlds from your phone.”
With single or recurring bank transfers, users get crypto directly deposited on their wallets, with no other operation required. They can be converted back in 28 currencies and withdrawn on a bank account around the world. Instant card purchases and withdrawals will follow soon. Bridge Wallet also integrates multiple decentralized exchange tools like Uniswap, giving access to thousands of cryptoassets from your phone.
Free crypto-fiat transactions are available for all users up to $500 per year, with a degressive margin of 1.3% above. That limit can be raised up to $50,000 per year for holders of MPS tokens, the tokenized shares of Mt Pelerin available in P2P exchange on Bridge Wallet. “Instead of offering the typical premium plan, we give an incentive to discover the revolution of tokenized assets.”, adds Arnaud. “With an MPS token, you own an actual share of our company with full voting and dividend rights, which are exercised in Bridge Wallet. The users own the product, it’s a powerful example of financial democratization.”

  • Available in 171 countries (US excluded)
  • Investment currencies: CHF, EUR, GBP, USD
  • Withdrawal currencies: CHF, EUR, GBP, USD, AED, ARS, AUD, CAD, CNH, CZK, DKK, HKD, HUF, ILS, JPY, KRW, MXN, NOK, NZD, PLN, RON, RUB, SAR, SEK, SGD, THB, TRY, ZAR

ENTRUST INTRODUCES ADAPTIVE ISSUANCE™ PRODUCTION ANALYTICS SOLUTION TO OPTIMIZE CARD ISSUANCE OPERATIONS

Published

on

By

The new solution provides intelligent, data-driven insights to card issuers with Central Issuance systems for improved and timely management decisions

 

Entrust, a global leader in trusted identity, payments and data protection, today introduced the Production Analytics Solution, designed to provide real-time data and actionable insights to optimize card issuance operations. The solution is part of the Entrust Adaptive Issuance software platform trusted by banks, governments and other organizations worldwide.

With the complexity of card issuance environments and lack of real-time visibility into production system operations, card issuers have difficulty effectively overcoming efficiency challenges across the production ecosystem. Entrust has leveraged more than 50 years of expertise in the card issuance market to develop a platform that will provide the intelligent data and expert support needed to master operational planning for the alignment of people, equipment and processes, positioning card issuers as leaders within the industry.

“Card issuers are in search of solutions that help bring efficient continuous process improvements and optimization to the production floor,” said Dan Good, Vice President, Payment and Identity Issuance Solutions at Entrust. “The Entrust Production Analytics Solution was developed by the same engineers that built the systems it supports. And, we’ve gone a step further to provide one-on-one consultation to our customers, allowing them access to our team of experts to help identify and remove bottlenecks, increase operational efficiency and reduce production costs.”

 

How it works

The Entrust Production Analytics Solution collects information directly from the Central Issuance systems on the production floor and converts it into a dynamic dashboard of data for in-depth analysis. It offers point-and-click drill down capabilities to refine the accumulated data over any time interval, and the data can be shown in a variety of ways to see the most appropriate insights for the operation.

Key features and benefits of the subscription includes:

  • Real-time, actionable data collection that supports SPC (Statistical Process Control) methodology to monitor production statistics and trends for immediate problem solving
  • Regular industry expert engagements that will provide in-depth analysis of data and actionable recommendations for card issuer efficiency improvements

UK READY TO SPEED UP THE DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION REVOLUTION

More than half of businesses set to accelerate projects due to pandemic

British business is set for a digital revolution according to a survey which indicates that 56 per cent of companies are speeding up plans because of the pandemic.

With so many employees working from home, and a battle to get back on track after a year of turbulence, businesses are realising their processes and systems are potentially outdated and in need of an overhaul.

The survey, commissioned by Crown Records Management, revealed:

  • 32 per cent are planning digital transformation in the next 12 months to cope with the new normal.
  • A further 24 per cent plan to act within five years.
  • 66 per cent say the pandemic has made the C-Suite in their business recognise the importance of digital transformation.
  • 30 per cent say allowing employees to work at home efficiently is now a key driver for digital transformation.
  • 27 per cent do not view their business as having already ‘gone digital’.
  • Only 26 per sent say they have already fully digitised all their back-office functions.

David Fathers, Regional General Manager at Crown Records Management, said: “There was already a big desire from UK businesses to develop a digital strategy even before the pandemic, driven by a demand for improved data security and a need to be more competitive in the market.

“But these survey results show that companies now want to increase the pace of change because of the events of the last year.

“Having so many employees working from home has shone a light on the inadequacies of systems currently in place in many companies, of all sizes. Employees have found that information has been difficult to track down and slow to access.

“There’s a myth that Western countries such as the UK are so far ahead in the digital field that most businesses have already undergone digital transformation.

“The survey showed that only a quarter of businesses have fully digitised all their back-office functions, which means there is a long way to go.”

The survey, undertaken by Censuswide, polled 401 decision makers at companies across the country with between 250 and 5000 employees.

David Fathers added: “We also asked whether people considered their business as having already ‘gone digital’ and surprisingly 27% said ‘no’.

“That figure was even higher in London at 30% and highest of all in companies of between 250-500 employees – at 46%.

“It is vital that businesses begin the digital journey soon. The benefits are compelling.

“Digital solutions can help a business become more efficient, save time and money, and make it simpler for employees to do their job – and that’s even before we begin to think about compliance and data security, which are huge business issues in the modern world.

“Perhaps it has taken the pandemic for some boardrooms to wake up to the importance of digital transformation, but if the intentions set out in this survey become reality, it can only be a good thing for UK business.”
