Telcoin team continues its growth!
We are very happy to introduce our new team members
Tom joins from Barclays where he worked on Regulatory Reform and Derivatives Operations. He also previously worked with Deutsche Bank in Operations bringing 12 years of experience from the investment banking world. At Telcoin, Tom will be working in the Compliance & Operations team as a Project Manager focused on regulatory compliance within each region’s framework.
Jeff Quigley has now left his role as a Telcoin advisor and joined the company, he is now a full time member of the business development team.
“I spent a lot of time in Southeast Asia, Jakarta in particular, where I saw the power of fintech and mobile wallets to lessen the access gap to basic financial services. I believe Telcoin can become a serious global player on that front, especially as far as scale and interoperability are concerned. Wallets are taking off, but they’re still mostly closed systems, unable to interact across particular services or international borders.”
CEZA meeting and Moving forward in the Phillipines.
Eric and Mark met with the President & Secretary of CEZA (Cagayan Economic Zone Authority) and the PADCDI (Philippines Association for Digital Commerce & Decentralization Industry) on bringing Telcoin to the region to a very positive reception.
Telcoin joined the PADCDI group and is working with them to obtain a license from the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, the central regulator in the Philippines. This is a great step towards financial inclusion throughout the Philippines.
Regulators and Banque De France.
Claude, Eric, and Laurent met with the EU Regulators in France (ACPR Division of Banque De France) on officially obtaining a license for Telcoin and received very positive feedback.
Regulators understand that Telcoin is trying to solve a real need and that the company is doing everything in its power to have a compliant business model.
Telcoin intends to work closely with regulators and government officials, doing our best to guarantee a better experience and safety to our users is a priority.
We are already heavily involved in the process of obtaining our licenses and the team is making great progress toward this key milestone.
The community keeps growing
Our online community is thriving as our social channels continue to grow and attract more people to our twitter, telegram & reddit pages. To ensure we communicate effectively with community members and have now assigned five official community managers based around the World to oversee our social channels.
This team will be on hand 24 hours a day to speak to the community, answer any questions and give feedback from members of the community to the Telcoin team. We value our community and want to be sure that we are always available to discuss the project with them.
Telcoin in Africa
Last but not least, we are very happy to share this major piece of information!
Telcoin signs with a major African operator to start testing how financial inclusion can be increased through Blockchain based technology leveraging on the number of phones compared to active bank account usage. More details to be shared over the next few months (name,timeline).
The partnership will explore blockchain solutions for a variety of use cases, with the goal of boosting financial inclusion for mobile phone users across the African continent and beyond. The trial will explore all aspects related to potential service offerings – including regulatory, technical, and commercial parameters and viability.
