区块链平台Zilliqa在Open Finance中指导了八家初创公司

2020-9-9 15:39

 

2020年9月7日,区块链平台Zilliqa宣布了8家公司将加入他们的ZILHive加速器项目。该项目为期6个月,面向早期和晚期创业公司,帮助他们使用Zilliqa协议构建区块链解决方案。今年的重点是在开放金融(OpFi)和金融民主化中推广区块链。


在被选中的八家初创企业中,有三家包括新加坡端到端数字证券服务公司Propine、罗马尼亚加密货币钱包Moonlet和美国去中心自主身份解决方案Moonlight。这些公司将接受从设计思维到融资等各种商业领域的培训。


Zilliqa还成立了ZILHive开放金融联盟。它由不同的公司和8个被选中的初创公司组成,他们都致力于创建一个协作的区块链生态系统。参与其中的一家公司Switcheo Network的首席执行官Ivan Poon说:“ZILHive开放金融联盟证明了协作在实施有意义的变革方面的力量。”


Zilliqa过去的OpFi项目包括与新加坡金融科技平台Xfers的合作。2019年11月,他们推出了stablecoin initiative StraitsX,由Zilliqa的区块链驱动。上个月,Zilliqa的姐妹公司Aquilliz与新加坡电信公司MyRepublic进行了区块链忠诚测试。


Zilliqa的加速器项目与新加坡风险投资公司TRIVE Ventures去年推出的区块链发展项目类似。通过部落加速器,TRIVE与宝马、英特尔和尼尔森一起指导了10家初创公司,以促进和鼓励区块链生态系统。Tribe还与Zilliqa一起开发加速器。


OpFi扩展了开放银行数据共享原则,允许第三方提供商跨各种金融服务和产品访问消费者数据。创立ZILHive的部分目的是为了推动创新,推动全球OpFi生态系统的发展。Zilliqa生态系统开发高级副总裁chhan Wen Chua强调,大流行病加速了对数字金融的需求,“现在是金融科技在采用更开放的金融生态系统方面发挥更大作用的时候了。”

 

On 7 September 2020, blockchain platform Zilliqa announced the eight companies that will join their ZILHive Accelerator program. Lasting six months, the program is targeted towards early and late-stage startups, helping them use the Zilliqa protocol to build their blockchain solutions. This year, the focus is to promote blockchain in Open Finance (OpFi) and democratizing finance. 

Three of the eight chosen startups include Propine, a Singaporean end-to-end digital securities services firm, Moonlet, a Romanian cryptocurrency wallet, and Moonlight, a U.S. decentralized self-sovereign identity solution. The companies will be trained in various business areas, from design thinking to fundraising.

Zilliqa has also launched the ZILHive Open Finance consortium. It consists of various firms and the eight chosen startups, all working towards creating a collaborative blockchain ecosystem. Ivan Poon, CEO of Switcheo Network, one of the participating firms, says “ZILHive Open Finance consortium is a testament to the power of collaboration in enacting meaningful change.”

Past Zilliqa OpFi projects include a partnership with Xfers, a Singaporean FinTech platform. In November 2019, they launched stablecoin initiative StraitsX which is powered by Zilliqa’s blockchain. Last month, Zilliqa’s sister-company Aquilliz conducted a blockchain loyalty pilot with Singapore telecoms company, MyRepublic.

Zilliqa’s Accelerator program is similar to the Government-backed blockchain development program offered by Singaporean venture capital firm TRIVE Ventures last year. Through Tribe Accelerator, TRIVE, alongside BMW, Intel, and Nelson, mentored ten startups to promote and encourage the blockchain ecosystem. Tribe also worked with Zilliqa on its accelerator.

OpFi extends open banking data-sharing principles to allow third-party providers to access consumer data across various financial services and products. ZILHive was partly created to drive innovation and further the growth in a world-wide OpFi ecosystem. Zilliqa’s SVP of Ecosystem Development, Han Wen Chua, highlights the fact the pandemic has accelerated the need for digital finance, and that “the time is now for FinTech to take on a greater role in adopting a more open financial ecosystem.”
