Translucia Pioneers First-Of-Its-Kind ‘Multiverse Convergence’ Solution; ‘Metaverse Built for Good’ to Reimagine The Future Of Human Experiences

Published

on

 

Translucia Metaverse (Translucia), a joint venture between MQDC and T&B Media Global, two of Thailand’s most eminent real estate and entertainment conglomerates, launched a ‘Multiverse Convergence’ solution, its proprietary LightLink Protocol (LightLink), today. LightLink is the world’s first enterprise Layer-2 (L2) blockchain built to accelerate the entry of traditional businesses into Web3. By offering a low cost and easily accessible solution to third-party metaverses, LightLink enables enterprises to enter Web3 at scale.

Powering Metaverse Multiverse Convergence

Translucia is building critical infrastructure that will integrate third-party metaverse projects to enable interoperability, allowing for ‘Multiverse Convergence’ within popular Layer-1 (L1) blockchains.

Through LightLink, metaverses created and owned by different players can interoperate as well as integrate functionalities. This opens up new avenues for commerce and collaboration between metaverse owners, furthering innovation opportunities. Simultaneously, LightLink’s ‘Multiverse Convergence’ solution addresses the endemic fragmentation of the current Web3 ecosystem, allowing end-users to seamlessly connect across the ‘Internet Multiverse’.

Teleporting Legacy Enterprises onto Web3

A world first, LightLink’s enterprise mode removes the complexity and necessity of acquiring the L1 blockchain’s native token and reduces the onboarding fees required for businesses to leverage Distributed Ledger Technology. LightLink guarantees a pre-ordained throughput across its ecosystem, ensuring stable gas fees and consistent performance.

Existing L1 blockchains have built-in decentralization and security mechanisms that generate higher transaction gas fees in tandem with market demand. As such, gas fees can increase manifold when users compete for finite resources.

Anchored on Ethereum, the LightLink Protocol leverages Ethereum’s security features while ensuring predictability and stability in gas fees. In enterprise mode, LightLink users can interact with blockchains speedily, more efficiently, and at lower costs without compromising safety.

Mr. Athid Nanthawaroon, Executive Director, Translucia Company Limited, said, “Translucia is the ‘Metaverse Accelerator’ that the world needs as we move towards a new Internet era. The present metaverse remains both abstract and fragmented; inaccessible to most legacy businesses let alone the average user.”

“Translucia will integrate various Web3 ecosystems into a single ‘Multiverse’ that helps metaverse players unify their technologies, workflow, and user experience within one standardized platform. This collaborative intra-industry approach will not only accelerate humanity’s transition into hybrid reality, but create a more accessible and inclusive Web3 for everyone,” said Mr. Athid.

LightLink is currently designed for Ethereum and Polygon and is set to enable interoperability with other prominent blockchains in the near future.

‘Metaverse Built for Good’: A Global Collaborative Effort

Translucia will tap into T&B’s significant Business-to-Consumer credentials and extensive Intellectual Property portfolio of movies, television series, animations, and media personalities to support business partners in the development of immersive User Experience for their respective metaverse projects. Translucia will also co-create the foundation and functionalities of these metaverses, from infrastructure building to economics design and the tokenization of real-world assets.

Dr. Jwanwat Ahriyavraromp, CEO and Founder of T&B Media Global, Founder of Translucia, said, “Translucia was founded with the vision to empower people who aspire to be happy. Through our ‘Metaverse Built for Good,’ we aim to balance the social, economic and environmental needs of the world. The fully realized Translucia Metaverse will be an engine that drives goodness and wellness into a holistic form of prosperity and happiness.”

“Web3 advancements can bridge the digital divide and address inequality. Industry collaboration is essential to this goal. We have laid the groundwork for a scalable metaverse platform and invite Web3 architects and traditional businesses to join us in co-creating an interconnected metaverse ecosystem that spans across partners and networks,” said Dr. Jwanwat.

Translucia will continue to advance various global partnerships, including:

  • Tonomus, a leading technology enterprise powering the world’s first ecosystem of cognitive technologies;
  • Impact District, a Web3 enabler of meaningful experiences and opportunities through impact-driven organizations;
  • Band Protocol, a blockchain-agnostic decentralized oracle platform that connects real-world data and APIs to smart contracts;
  • Animoca Brands, a world renowned blockchain company based in Hong Kong, focused on building the Web3 digital assets ecosystem via its operations and investments.

PayPal receives New York crypto trust charter

Published

paypal-receives-new-york-crypto-trust-charter

The New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) has granted PayPal Digital a limited purpose trust charter, a designation typically held by digital asset custodians and some stablecoin issuers.

Last August, PayPal launched its PYUSD stablecoin, marking the first stablecoin from a BigTech company. Paxos Trust Company, which also holds an NYDFS limited trust charter, currently issues the PYUSD stablecoin. Paxos has been PayPal’s partner for its cryptocurrency services since inception. Consequently, the new trust charter may signal PayPal’s intention to take over the custody of its clients’ crypto-assets and potentially move the issuance of PYUSD in-house.

Despite reaching out to PayPal for clarification on the purpose of the trust charter, no response was received before publication.

The PYUSD stablecoin is still in its early stages, with its recent integration for cross-border payments via PayPal’s Xoom app. The stablecoin’s market capitalization has grown to nearly $400 million, up from $190 million in early April. Notably, wallets associated with the issuer Paxos hold over $125 million, possibly on behalf of PayPal. The top five wallets constitute 71% of the stablecoin balance, with 17 wallets holding $1 million or more, accounting for 97% of the total holdings.

The largest holders include Paxos, Crypto.com, Curve (DeFi), Defiance Capital, and Frax (DeFi). Among these, Crypto.com holds a balance of $103 million and Bullish holds $23 million.

Additionally, in November, the SEC’s enforcement division issued a subpoena requesting documents related to the issuance of the PYUSD stablecoin.

Hong Kong SFC to conduct compliance checks on crypto firms

Published

hong-kong-sfc-to-conduct-compliance-checks-on-crypto-firms

The Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) has announced that it will conduct on-site compliance checks on local virtual asset trading platforms (VATPs) that are still completing their regulatory applications following the June 1 licensing deadline.

In a notice issued on May 28, the SFC emphasized that all local crypto trading platforms must be either licensed or “deemed-to-be-licensed” by the regulatory body before the June 1 deadline. Operating an unlicensed VATP in Hong Kong after this date will be considered a criminal offense, and the SFC will actively pursue non-compliant companies.

In the coming months, the SFC will perform on-site inspections of deemed-to-be-licensed VATP applicants to evaluate their compliance with regulatory requirements. These inspections will focus on how firms safeguard client assets and implement Know Your Customer (KYC) processes.

The SFC urged investors to trade cryptocurrencies only on SFC-licensed platforms to ensure their protection. It also cautioned companies seeking licenses against actively marketing their services or onboarding new retail clients until they are formally licensed. Additionally, firms must prevent mainland Chinese residents from accessing their services, adhering to China’s ban on cryptocurrency trading.

Earlier this month, it was reported that the number of crypto exchanges seeking operational licenses in Hong Kong had been decreasing. Eleven crypto companies and exchanges, including well-known platforms like OKX and Huobi’s local arm, withdrew their applications ahead of the deadline. Currently, only 18 applications remain pending approval.

In response to the upcoming licensing requirements, some crypto firms have proactively taken steps to ensure compliance. For example, Gate.HK, a crypto exchange, halted all activities related to acquiring new users and marketing, prevented existing users from making deposits, and began delisting tokens on May 23. The exchange plans to relaunch its services after restructuring its platform to comply with Hong Kong’s regulatory requirements.

According to the SFC, only two companies, OSL Digital Securities Limited and Hash Blockchain Limited, have been granted licenses to operate in Hong Kong so far.

The crypto community in Argentina is planning to establish a “blockchain valley” in Buenos Aires as part of the Crecimiento movement, which has a following of 500 individuals.

This group includes prominent figures in the country’s crypto ecosystem, such as Diego Guitérrez, co-founder of Bitcoin Layer 2 Rootstock; Marcelo Cavazzoli, CEO and co-founder of Lemon Cash, a leading crypto purchasing app in Latin America; and Elian Alvarez, a general partner at Ripio Ventures.

Significantly, Crecimiento’s core team has the support of advisors to Argentina’s new libertarian president, Javier Milei.

Crecimiento aims to create a hub for crypto and technology-oriented business founders in the capital, offering a comprehensive three-dimensional plan. This includes bringing 5 to 10 million people on-chain by offering exclusive items, boosting the number of tech-related startups, and providing necessary support.

The group’s mission is to work with Argentina’s newly crypto-friendly government to bolster the cryptocurrency sector through initiatives like tax rebates, industry investment, and simplified regulations.

During his campaign, President Milei highlighted the benefits of Bitcoin, associating it with a sense of freedom, though no formal statements have been made on the subject. Nonetheless, the group has been actively collaborating with officials to establish their crypto center in Buenos Aires.

Maria Milagros Santamaria, a Web3 lawyer, noted that regulators are showing a high level of positivity toward their proposals and are requesting specific plans regarding the crypto sector to move forward. She mentioned that there are only a few individuals opposed to the initiative, and fortunately, their numbers are minimal.
