Okcoin has announced that it will promote its grand program for bringing more women into crypto: Bitcoin for Fairness and Ladies in Bitcoins. Okcoin has outlined cryptocurrency as more inclusive for building, learning, and connecting. It will span blockchain development, education, career mentorship, and more. As a part of this initiative, Okcoin has also partnered with Emmy-winning journalist Natalie Brunell host of the top-ranking "Coin Stories" podcast, and Randi Zuckerberg, inaugural brand advisor of the company.

As more than 40% of Okcoin's customers are female, it wants to lessen the gender gap that outweighs traditional investments such as mutual funds, stocks, and bonds. Therefore, to address this, Okcoin has recently set a goal of having a 50% female customer base by 2025. In addition, it has allocated $1 million in terms of diversity-oriented grants.

Web3 is still young enough for women to get involved at the ground level and lead the next generation of innovation, which will be defined by digital assets, decentralized finance, and NFTs. We're excited to support Bitcoin for Fairness and Ladies in Bitcoin in making this possible. Crypto adoption may be lower among women right now, but with education, career resources, and community support, we can change this."

Hong Fang, CEO of Okcoin.

Okcoin also mentions that members of underrepresented populations can apply at okcoin.com/cryptoforall to support crypto-oriented work. Up until now, Okcoin has granted over $1 million to Bitcoin Core developers, who volunteer to build Bitcoin blockchain for anyone.

Yapily Introduces Comma's Bulk Payments Service in the United Kingdom

Yapily | June 09, 2021

Yapily, the main supplier of Open Banking infrastructure, today launched its new Open Banking bulk payment service, which already operates and takes use of its UK service with Comma, the SME payment platform, live. Yapily, in collaboration with Comma, has streamlined the complicated process of bulk payments in the UK under Open Banking. Customers like Comma may use the proposal to get the API connection they need to build a dependable, secure, and scalable bulk payments functionality for their accounting, payroll, and bookkeeping clients. Previously, bulk payments in the UK were only available to medium to large enterprises with corporate banking accounts. As a result, many SMEs have been forced to rely on old, inefficient payment procedures, which cause substantial difficulties and problems when it comes to paying employees, suppliers, and customers on time, every time. Comma's accountant and bookkeeper customers may use Yapily's bulk payment service to generate and share payment runs with clients, who can then bulk pay bills, taxes, and wages on their phone or PC in a few taps from their own bank account. This enables accountants and bookkeepers to provide additional payment services to customers, which has been requested for many years. As SMEs strive to recover post-pandemic, operational efficiency is critical. “Comma was developed out of a love for aiding small businesses,” stated Tom Beckenham, CEO and Founder of Comma. Paying anything manually is a time-consuming practise that frequently impacts small business owners. We are now able to provide our customers with a fantastic payments experience because to our strong collaboration and transparency with Yapily. It allows them to refocus their efforts on building their enterprises. We are looking forward to continuing our collaboration with Yapily.” Yapily is the first Open Banking infrastructure provider to test and release bulk payments capabilities for seven UK financial institutions, using its direct and extensive contacts with many of the UK's top banks. To introduce the most technically robust bulk payments service to market, the FinTech has worked extensively with Comma and UK banks to highlight anomalies in behaviour, glitches, and circumstances where API documentation isn't indicative of what's in practise. Yapily & Comma's approach decreases the likelihood of clients being taken off guard by anomalies and ensures the success of bulk payments across the board. “We've observed a real, increasing demand from our customers for bulk payments capabilities,” said Stefano Vaccino, CEO of Yapily. We're pleased to announce that, after much effort, we've created a dependable bulk payments service for our UK customers. We've been fortunate to work with forward-thinking clients like Comma, who have assisted us in stress-testing the functionality so that we can provide the most robust service possible. “What appears to be a straightforward implementation of the required endpoints has been a massive team effort, as well as a steep learning curve for us as an Open Banking infrastructure provider. We're currently working on expanding this across Europe, and we're delighted to collaborate with Comma and other clients to push it even further.” Yapily's bulk payment solution will be rolled out to consumers in Germany in the next months, with the company hoping to power new bulk payment offers with more European clients in the future.

In addition to being rated an overall G2 Grid® Leader in AP Automation for the seventh consecutive quarter, G2's Spring 2021 scores also mark the organization's fifth consecutive quarter as an ultimate Grid® Leader in Invoice Management. Stampli is also regarded as a mid-market AP Automation Leader (companies with 51-1,000 employees). As part of Stampli's continuous growth in various software categories, the company has been named overall Leader in G2's Momentum Grid® in the AP Automation, Invoice Management, and Billing categories. The Momentum Grid® is determined by Momentum scores on the vertical axis, which reflect overall business growth as well as evaluation growth, and Satisfaction scores on the horizontal axis, which reflects overall customer satisfaction. In the previous quarters, Stampli was named a Leader in multiple categories based on high ratings for customer satisfaction, service, and accessibility in feedback sent to G2 by Stampli users. Stampli's user-contributed ratings resulted in a number one overall rank in Spring 2021 for all four AP Automation Index Reports – Implementation, Relationship, Usability, and Results – as well as first in the same four Index Reports for mid-market companies. “From the beginning, Stampli has put customers front and center,” said Eyal Feldman, CEO of Stampli. “This has resulted in everything from our industry-leading response times to the way we've evolved the Stampli product (our introduction of Stampli Direct Pay being an example of this).

Being able to see unbiased user feedback is invaluable. It's also incredibly fulfilling to see reviewers holding Stampli in such high regard, with things like user-friendliness, fast integration times, supportive customer success, and deep integrations being common themes in the reviews.” Stampli received top ratings from G2 reviewers for its user-friendly interface, extensive training and support capabilities, and smooth integrations with existing processes and financial systems.
