Baanx BXX: Progress Update (May 2021)

Baanx imagines a world where you can borrow for free against, send money across the globe and earn crypto rewards from daily spending. Baanx is now working with some of the leading global digital asset corporations, like Tezos, DeFis, Exchanges, wallet providers, to provide secure crypto-friendly services. What sets Baanx apart is interest-free secured lending, high rate savings for staking digital assets, global remittance, and the ability to spend digital assets directly on physical and virtual Visa and China Union Pay cards.

Here’s where Baanx currently stands as well as some exciting updates for the future. Baanx “Better than a Bank.”

How Do Baanx Products And Services Differentiate From Other Platforms?

By offering fully managed services, Baanx can provide digital asset-friendly lending together with a staking platform. Secured and interest-free lending with BXX tokens allows loans to be made into a user’s digital wallet, or spent through a virtual card with 0% interest charged, in the EEA, UK and soon in the United States.

An issue in the crypto space is that users want to hold onto their funds. With Baanx, users can keep their crypto and borrow against it in a secure, ‘one click’ way while staking BXX tokens. Baanx is headquartered and regulated in the UK, and utilises a credit broking license.

With over 20 APIs Baanx can offer crypto lending cards, and other services directly into any website or apps to ensure every exchange, DeFi, wallet priced or other FinTech can offer Baanx white label services to their community.

Exciting Partnerships And How Baanx Is Growing

The Baanx team has an incredible familiarity with the banking, mobile and FinTech industries. With over 100 years of combined experience at key institutions such as JP Morgan, Commerzbank, NatWest, Ernst & Young, London Stock Exchange, CEX.IO and MasterCard, to name a few, their expertise will be what continues to push Baanx to expand and emerge as a leader.

As a result, further partnerships and investors will provide Baanx with the opportunity to continue to scale, grow and offer products and services that set them apart from the competition and further leverage lending against any digital asset, including cryptos, stocks, bonds and NFT’s (Non-Fungible Tokens).

BXX Token To Be Listed On Uniswap

Starting June 21st, 2021, BXX Tokens will be listed on Uniswap, the decentralised finance platform built on Ethereum used to exchange cryptocurrencies. Users will be able to use the Uniswap interface to connect their wallets and exchange tokens to or from other tokens — all without any involvement of a central party. Serving as an important foundation for decentralised finance, Uniswap v3 was announced in early May 2021, which will provide further concentrated liquidity as well as multiple fee tiers, making it the most flexible and structured AMM on the market.

Baanx is continuing to grow and expand with new and existing partnerships. Contracts have been signed with DeFis and wallet holders and include partners such as:

  • AlphaBit, a crypto asset management platform that is invested in the decentralised economy of the future
  • Scalable Solutions, a white-label digital asset exchange that uses a tokenization engine to create any type of financial product and manage its life cycle
  • Tezos, a decentralised, open-source blockchain network backed by a global community of validators, researchers and builders
  • Akoin, a blockchain-based ecosystem of tools and services designed for entrepreneurs, business owners and social activists across the rising economies of Africa and beyond

Other partners and investors include:

  • BnkToTheFuture, a global online platform that provides investment opportunities in FinTech companies, funds and other alternative financial products
  • British Business Bank, an economic development bank established by the UK Government to increase the supply of credit to small and medium enterprises

Substantial Opportunity Provides Incredible Room For Growth

Cryptocurrencies have experienced an incredible uptake since early 2015 and are showing no signs of slowing down, with expectations of reaching critical mass in the next 5 years. As of March 2021, the top 200 cryptocurrencies and tokens had a combined market cap of over $1.2 trillion (coinmarketcap.com). Many DeFi and wallet providers are satisfied with adding lending to their portfolios.

Currently, there are around 70–80 million people worldwide who have Bitcoin wallets. Compare that to the global population of 7.8 billion, of which 3.8 billion hold a bank account, and the opportunities are boundless, and that figure is expected to rise to as many as 580 million people by 2030, or 7.25% of the global population. This is in large part due to more people discovering the power and flexibility of going beyond fiat currencies.

The adaptation and growth of cryptocurrency are following the classic technology growth path. The increased use of the internet and mobile phones, as well as blockchain, are driving significant and increased growth. The opportunities will continue to grow and expand for Baanx by offering white-label solutions to consumers of would-be competitors, such as firms like CoinBase, which hold over 30 million customers worldwide and has a valuation of over $80 billion.

How Are Funds Used?

Funds are distributed in several different ways and are strategically positioned to cover everything from operations, compliance and licenses, marketing, strategic partnerships and products and services.

Baanx feels strongly that for digital asset FinTechs to become mainstream, we must be “Better Than Banks”.

And that’s what we’re doing.

The growth of the global digit asset community is a key innovation in the spread of blockchain and cryptocurrency, and Baanx is confident that these financial services will continue to benefit from the adoption of other digital assets. In turn, this will lower the costs of products and services and deliver substantial benefits to a wide-ranging segment of society.
