DUBAI, UAE, July 13, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Webb Fontaine, a global leader in AI-powered trade technology and Customs facilitation solutions, is proud to announce that Guinea Customs has chosen its state-of-the-art Smart Tracking solutions to enhance trade facilitation processes.

 

 

As a trusted partner to Guinea Customs, we are excited to provide our advanced tracking solutions to drive efficiency and security in trade facilitation,” said Alioune Ciss, CEO of Webb Fontaine. “By combining cutting-edge technologies such as GPS tracking and RFID tagging, we are enabling Guinea Customs to take full control of their operations and enhance the safety and transparency of goods in transit.”

The solution includes GPS/GSM tracking beacons equipped with smart locking cables, delivering accurate real-time position and speed for trucks of goods in transit. Alongside this, an integrated geolocation platform and the Smart Transit system will ensure efficient monitoring and management of tracking data.

To centralize operations and ensure effective oversight, a fully equipped Control Room will be established at the General Directorate of Customs, from where Guinea Customs officers will monitor the movement of trucks on a 24/7 basis and react to alerts received from the trackers, such as exits from approved corridors, stops in non-designated areas or tracker cable openings outside customs-controlled departure and destination sites.

Director of Customs, General Moussa CAMARA, Grand Officer of the National Order of Merit: “The aim of this project is to secure the transit of goods from Guinea to neighbouring countries. This electronic tracking tool for goods in transit will significantly reduce fraudulent dumping of goods on our territory. Therefore, the use of this tool will secure revenue and reduce fraud. It will result in improved Customs performance.”

At the same time, it will combat unfair competition from certain operators who do not pay their duties and taxes, while dumping various products on the market. Traders will also benefit from the project by being allowed to start their transit journey as soon as a tracker has been affixed on their truck. Significant time savings will be realised by doing away with the physical Customs escort, which is now replaced with Smart Tracking. Another major advantage for Traders will be a private access to the geolocation platform where they will view the live location of their trucks.

These advanced components reflect Webb Fontaine’s commitment to revolutionizing trade facilitation for Guinea Customs.

The solution seamlessly integrates GPS tracking for cargo trucks and RFID tagging for vehicles in transit. These state-of-the-art technologies align with SydoniaWorld and are compatible with the SIGMAT (Système Interconnecté de Gestion des Marchandises en Transit) project, showcasing Guinea Customs’ visionary approach to transit management.

This strategic partnership signifies Guinea Customs’ dedication to taking full ownership of the project, with the majority of human resources coming from Customs personnel, demonstrating their expertise and commitment to success. Webb Fontaine will serve as a trusted partner, offering extensive training, technical support, and consultancy services to ensure a seamless implementation.

“Moreover, this impactful public-private partnership leverages Webb Fontaine’s existing border infrastructure and its significant presence in the Guichet Unique du Commerce Extérieur de Guinée (GUCEG) project, resulting in substantial cost reductions through economies of scale. Together, Webb Fontaine and Guinea Customs are driving innovation, efficiency, and security in trade facilitation processes”, states Mr Mamoudou Diane, Managing Director GUCEG/ Webb Fontaine Guinea

Bybit’s Institutional Investors Triple ETH Exposure Ahead of ETF Launch

Published

on

bybit’s-institutional-investors-triple-eth-exposure-ahead-of-etf-launch

DUBAI, UAE, June 21, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Bybit, one of the world’s top three crypto exchanges by volume, has released a new study showing institutional investors have increased their ETH holdings ahead of the launch of the spot ETH ETF in the US. Analysts predict this ETF will capture between $8 and $12 billion from US and global markets, driving Ethereum to new all-time highs by year-end.

According to recent data, Bybit’s institutional investors’ exposure to ETH has almost tripled since the ETF announcement on May 24, 2024—moving from 6.54% to a current weighting of 14.29%. This surge underscores the growing confidence in Ethereum’s future performance and the expected positive impact of the ETF launch.

Retail investors on Bybit have also increased their ETH allocations, although not as dramatically as institutional investors. The allocation to ETH has risen from 7.40% to 9.52%, reflecting a cautious but positive response to the ETF announcement.

“Ethereum is the crypto product favored by traditional capital such as BlackRock and Franklin Templeton, both of whom have tokenized funds on the platform,” said Hao Yang, head of financial products at Bybit. “Given this, the chain seems poised to become the institutional pick. With its native yield, the ETH token allows for composability, and we are seeing protocols building interesting derivatives based on ETH’s stable yield, leveraging this to create crypto primitives that mimic those built on top of the US Treasury market. Finally, because a portion of ETH is burned (sent to a wallet from which no withdrawals are possible), the asset can become deflationary, which means the more network effects kick in, the scarcer the asset becomes.”

Taiwan’s Leading Crypto Market Leader BitoGroup Partners with Digital Bank to Launch World’s First Crypto-Friendly Bank Account

Published

on

taiwan’s-leading-crypto-market-leader-bitogroup-partners-with-digital-bank-to-launch-world’s-first-crypto-friendly-bank-account

TAIPEI, June 21, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — BitoGroup, the leading cryptocurrency market leader in Taiwan, today announced its partnership with Far Eastern International Bank Bankee to launch the world’s first dedicated crypto-friendly bank account. As cryptocurrency adoption by international institutions continues to grow, BitoGroup began serving financial institutions two years ago, setting a precedent as the first cryptocurrency exchange to form an alliance with financial institutions. This partnership promotes seamless integration between traditional banks and third-party payment processors. It represents a significant breakthrough for the financial market and has sparked considerable interest within Taiwan’s financial sectors. By collaborating with large institutions, BitoGroup aims to strengthen the cryptocurrency ecosystem and plays a crucial role in driving innovation in financial technology.

The world’s first dedicated bank account for cryptocurrency users is the result of three years of research and effort by BitoGroup and Bankee. This innovative service was achieved by integrating the systems and service processes of the two companies, while ensuring compliance with regulations and supervisory measures, and prioritizing user’s experience.

“Both BitoGroup and Bankee place great emphasis on the security of member assets, platform stability, and user transaction experience,” said Titan Cheng, Founder and CEO of BitoGroup., “Since the initial pilot phase, we have received positive feedback from the community. The Bankee dedicated account can be linked to BitoPro’s exchange account and set up in as little as one hour, significantly enhancing user’s convenience. During the pilot phase, the average daily transaction amount per user increased by 25%. With over one million members in Taiwan, we expect explosive growth once the service is officially launched.

Cheng emphasized that the cryptocurrency community is excited about the collaboration between exchanges and traditional financial institutions. This collaboration will positively improve user confidence in transactions and reverse the negative image of cryptocurrency scams. In the future, BitoGroup will join forces with Bankee to introduce more services, enriching the flexibility of utilizing both fiat and cryptocurrencies.

BitoPro has also partnered with Taiwan’s largest third-party payment processors, Neweb Technologies, to launch “BitoPay”, enabling 300,000 merchants and millions of members to use cryptocurrency for payments, making “BitoPay” the most widely accepted crypto payment solution in Taiwan.

BitoGroup believes that partnering with large institutions to integrate cryptocurrency use into existing operational systems is not only the best way to promote cryptocurrency usage but also fosters innovation. Initiatives such as exchanging convenience store loyalty points for digital currency, enabling cryptocurrency payments through e-commerce third-party payment services, and the recent launch of crypto-friendly accounts with Bankee, all contribute to expanding the existing ecosystem. BitoGroup’s robust blockchain infrastructure, combined with a focus on optimizing service processes through technology, will create a win-win situation for institutions, exchanges, and users.

Taiwan’s cryptocurrency industry has officially entered a new era of regulation with the establishment of the Virtual Asset Service Provider (VASP) Association. BitoGroup’s founder and CEO, Titan Cheng, has been elected as the first Chairman of the VASP Association. This close cooperation between cryptocurrency and traditional financial institutions will help strengthen the trust of regulatory authorities and financial institutions in the cryptocurrency industry, laying a solid foundation for the crypto-financial system.

About BitoGroup

Founded in 2014, BitoGroup aims to use blockchain technology to achieve the goal of inclusive finance, including assisting companies and consumers to enter the new era of Web3. The businesses of the group include BitoPro (a cryptocurrency exchange), BELS (an NFT empowerment platform), and O2 META (a metaverse-focused social media platform).
