Home 2021 The Crypto Connected Companies

With advanced technological developments, virtual currency exchange methods have been invented and evolved rapidly in past few years, and have emerged and commonly known now, all around the world as ‘cryptocurrencies”. Prior to then, virtual currencies were initially limited for demonstrable transactions in social and gaming economies.

The cryptocurrencies were aimed to eliminate financial intermediaries by direct peer-to-peer transactions. Most of the developing countries like the U.S., Germany, China, and the U.K. have started adopting cryptocurrencies as an exchanging medium. The terms used for the digital currency varies from country to country, such as payment token (Switzerland), digital currency (Thailand, Australia, and, Argentina), crypto-token (Germany), virtual commodity (Taiwan, China, and Canada), virtual asset (Honduras and Mexico), cyber currency (Italy and Lebanon), and electronic currency (Colombia and Lebanon).

Recent reports project that this market is primed to continue its revenue growth for several years to come. A report from Fortune Business Insights said that the global cryptocurrency market size stood at USD 754.0 million in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 1,758.0 million by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 11.2% during the forecast period.  Active Companies in the merchant industry include The OLB Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: OLB), GreenBox POS (OTCQB: GRBX), Mogo, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOGO) (TSX: MOGO), Riot Blockchain, Inc. (NASDAQ: RIOT), Marathon Patent Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: MARA).

The Fortune Business Insights report continued: “The increasing popularity of digital assets like Bitcoin and Litecoin is likely to drive the market growth in the forthcoming years. Moreover, digital currency is also often utilized with the integration of blockchain technology to attain decentralization and controlled efficient transactions. The block-chain technology offers decentralized, fast, transparent, secure, and reliable transactions. With these advantages of blockchain and cryptocurrency, companies are investing and collaborating with other companies to deliver efficient and quality services to the users.”

The Lucky Club

The Lucky Club is a fun way to start a very serious project.

Cryptocurrencies, Decentralized processes and the ever widening impact of Blockchain are going to have a major impact on the way things are done, who does them and who makes the money.

Where there were once huge barriers to entry, the door is now open.

They can through Blockchain, DeFi and P2P protocols became bankers participating in income from trading, brokerage, settlements, fees, mortgages, finance, margin lending and a host of other financial services.

To start our build out we have decided to run a Beta program, “The Lucky Club” and there we are implementing technology we have already developed and building out new technology over the next 12 months. Right now we have a seamless electronic interface between the platform and the trade desk allowing people to access an income stream from brokerage, margin lending, fees and commissions, and that is what we call TLC. REET is next project.

REET is Blockchain based 1st Mortgage Business in South East Asia and operating in Thailand allowing P2P participation in Mortgage lending in the fastest growing region of the world, also expected to be operating in 2021.

Once we have sufficient momentum and have ironed out all the bugs, we will “rehome” to KEPRIA.
