Peer to peer network Paxful has reported a boost in trading figures using Bitcoin as opposed to traditional currencies. They attribute this to the instability of local currencies and the ease of using crpytocurrencies to exchange goods/services using just a mobile phone.
The Scotcoin Project CIC (“Scotcoin”)
Scotcoin announces that it has terminated its contract to develop a new KYC and AML blockchain solution for the digital currency following a lengthy and difficult period of discovery and consolidation in respect of the contract.
However, we are also pleased to announce we are in advanced discussions with a new supplier and we expect to be in a position to make an announcement in the first quarter of this calendar year. We are currently going through the financial and legal due diligence process.
The proposed new contract will provide Scotcoin with its own distributed ledger technology infrastructure which will be fully compliant with KYC and AML in all respects. It will be capable of processing a high volume of confirmations and transactions per second at minimal cost. It will also provide Scotcoin with its own fully compliant wallet.
Upon delivery of the solution it is anticipated that migration terms including incentives will be announced shortly thereafter.
Scotcoin will be entering into a consultation process with key stakeholders over the coming weeks and further announcements are anticipated.
Willie Fleming, Director, The Scotcoin Project CIC said: “We have had a very difficult year and have had many obstacles to overcome. These have held us up beyond what we expected. We are confident that now we have the right partners to take us forward to fruition”
