Okcoin to Promote Women into Crypto with its $1M Initiative

Okcoin | March 09, 2022

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 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.

Lanistar to choose full banking solution in UK next after successful Brazil launch

PRnewswire | April 19, 2023

London-based Fintech Lanistar Limited is preparing for launch in the UK, which is expected to take place this Spring, 2023. Over the last two years Lanistar has invested heavily in building a winning proposition in Latin America (LATAM) and has successfully launched in Brazil with over 41,000 customers on-board. This is the result of important investments in both their technology but also the team now headed by Jeremy Baber a financial services veteran (ex-GE Capital, Aldermore Bank and Link Financial). This early success in Brazil is extremely promising and will be followed by further expansion in the LATAM markets. Lanistar expects to grow to over 1 million customers by mid-2023. Lanistar's focus in the UK and EU has taken a backseat due to unprecedented interest experienced in LATAM, but now the Company is planning to refocus its expansion on its 'home-turf', using the valuable and exciting learnings from their proposition in the Latin American market. Lanistar's CEO, Jeremy Baber, explains: "The key to our launch (in Brazil) and those to follow in other parts of LATAM, has been our alliance partnership with Mastercard members, who offered a 'Banking as a Service' solution. This means Lanistar has a 'one-stop shop' solution for market entry in the region, offering a full suite of services including Bank Accounts, Card Issuing, fully digital onboarding, and best of breed Regulatory Compliance, KYC, and Transaction Monitoring. "This has allowed Lanistar to concentrate on customer acquisition via our ever-growing social influencer family, and best-of-breed customer service, and continue development of the customer proposition with new and innovative services. The successful launch we have seen in Brazil with Bankly/Acesso Solutions, has made us review our growth plans in other regions. This means we are making a change in the UK and EU." Such change, as referred to by Baber, is in seeking a UK and EU partner who can provide that same 'one-stop shop' solution enjoyed by Lanistar in Latin America. To that end, Lanistar has chosen to change its UK and EU partner from Modulr to its current card provider, whom Lanistar believes offers the solutions Lanistar requires. Baber clarified: "We have had a close relationship with Modulr over the past two years and respect them in the industry, but regrettably they could not offer the Full Banking solution which has been key to our success in LATAM. Our current Mastercard Partner, can now offer us that same 'one stop shop' for the UK and EU. Therefore, it was logical to make a clean break from Modulr and put our reliance fully on them for our full UK launch and later in the year in Europe." When asked about the FCA and Lanistar's agency status he replied: "Yes, we lose our FCA agency of Modulr registration but in reality, the majority of Fintech's have sought this moniker as a 'badge of honour' rather than actually provide the services to their customers. We are being honest, we are a distributor of our Partner's services via our Brand and Mobile Application – our Partner should and must control the regulated elements of what we distribute, it is the correct model and how I believe the FCA intended Fintech to develop." About Lanistar Lanistar was founded in 2019 by entrepreneur Gurhan Kiziloz, whose ambition is to build a fintech unicorn that truly challenges the status quo of old-fashioned, traditional banking services. Using modern technology and working with industry-leading partners, the Lanistar team is building a platform that provides a total 'AnyMoney' solution for its customers. This will give customers access to all their financial products in one place, from general bank accounts all the way through to cryptocurrency. Lanistar is not a bank but a payment card provider, operating as an intermediary that offers financial services to end users. Lanistar offers the services of a typical bank account through its banking partner Modulr, but with advanced UI/UX and design to make it easier and more secure than high street banks. Lanistar Ltd is a registered EMD agent (FRN:902996) of Modulr FS Limited and may distribute and redeem e-money and provide payment services. Modulr FS Limited is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority ("FCA") under the Electronic Money Regulations 2011 (FRN: 900573) for the issuing of electronic money and to provide payment services. Lanistar Limited ("Lanistar") is currently only carrying our pre-launch marketing in preparation for the future launch of Lanistar branded payment cards ("Cards"). Lanistar is finalising arrangements with various partner firms who are authorised and/or regulated (by the FCA and other overseas regulators) and the Cards will only be launched and go-live when those arrangements are in place.
