Dear Telcoin community,

This week has been exciting on so many levels. After a year-plus of remote work, roughly half of the team was able to get together safely this week in our new offices in Los Angeles. I’m really looking forward to when we’re completely past the pandemic and able to bring the whole team together. It was an extremely productive week, being able to press forward on a number of key areas, while all in the same place. Aside from getting to know each other better, the focus of the week has been finalizing V3 front end and…

For millions of people around the globe, remittances are crucial to providing financial security, especially in areas that struggle with hardships caused by sub-optimal economies and unstable governments. Remittances can be a financial lifeline that not only provide people with the ability to cover life’s essentials, but in some countries also contribute a large percentage toward the total gross domestic product (GDP). Remittances provide the economy with a steady flow of income that allows local and national communities to survive, and thrive.

Dear Telcoin community,

Like just about everyone else on Earth, we at Telcoin are happy to move on from 2020, and 2021 is off to an exciting start. We’ve submitted V2 of the Telcoin application to both the App Store and Play Store — fiat remittances are finally becoming a reality. More importantly, this milestone closes the book on our transitional period. From here forward, in addition to continuing to add fiat remittance corridors, we are all from a product standpoint working on efforts initiated by the new team — namely Telcoin V3.

It might sound odd to talk about…

Dear Telcoin community,

I hope this update finds you and your family well in unprecedented times. I know it is cliche to say it has been a crazy year, but it really has. Despite the ups and downs, I believe Telcoin is in an incredibly rare position to do something very special for both crypto and fintech at large.

In summary, we have built two parallel products that, once brought together in 2021, will enable us not only to compete with traditional remittance players but also centralized financial systems in general — across the globe and in a non-custodial, decentralized…

Despite a forecasted 20 percent decline in global remittances for 2020, users are abandoning cash-focused incumbents and flocking to digital services. Telcoin and its mobile money partners will benefit from the exodus.

By: Jeff Quigley

Back in April, as much of the world began coming to grips with the grim “new normal” created by the spread of the novel coronavirus, the World Bank announced an appropriately negative outlook for remittances. With the pandemic already wreaking physical havoc across the globe, lockdowns and layoffs served a knock-out punch to economies. …

This weekend, the Kucoin exchange experienced a security breach which compromised their hot wallets. We have been monitoring this situation since the beginning.

What happened?

Beginning at 19:05 UTC time on Friday, September 25th, a hacker began withdrawing large sums of BTC, ETH, and a number of ERC-20 tokens from Kucoin to the following wallet address: https://etherscan.io/address/0xeb31973e0febf3e3d7058234a5ebbae1ab4b8c23.
