Founding partners Globalive Capital, the founders of Mundo Inc. and VRG Capital announced on January 9 the launch of Globalive Technology Partners (GTP), a new company that develops software and hardware technology stacks based on blockchain technology.

Canadian entrepreneur Anthony Lacavera will serve as Chairman and CEO of GTP. As Chairman and Founder of Globalive Capital, Anthony Lacavera is best known for founding WIND Mobile in 2007, which became Canada's fourth largest wireless carrier before being sold in 2015 to Shaw Communications for $1.6 Billion.

Blockchain investment is currently being driven by the price of bitcoin, when it should be driven by its potential to create significant value with real world applications. We are focused on being the first to commercialize blockchain technology across a variety of industries most susceptible to disintermediation — cutting out the middleman.

GTP is negotiating with 25 potential partners, and announced on Tuesday its first joint venture with media startup VIDL News, which is a news technology platform that will utilize artificial intelligence and blockchain technologies to report accurate global news events and incidents in an automated and real-time manner.

An initial round of $10 million in seed financing is currently underway. Globalive Technology Partners anticipates a public offering in mid-2018.

Binance announced an agreement with IdentityMind, which will help it ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and improve data security.

IdentityMind provides cryptocurrency exchanges with access to the platform, thanks to which they can monitor compliance with customer identification and anti-money laundering requirements in real time. This includes connecting new customers, managing their profiles and monitoring transactions.

The partnership between Binance and IdentityMind further strengthens our compliance capabilities and our commitment to re-invest in the blockchain ecosystem and grow it. We continue to evolve and enhance security systems while adhering to regulatory mandates in the countries we operate in. The goal is to foster greater trust among financial institutions worldwide.
 

Samuel Lim

Chief Compliance Officer, Binance

Last year, Bloomberg wrote about the Binance user identification system as the least strict in the entire industry, and linked the “level of anonymity” provided by the exchange with the risks of money laundering and market manipulation.

In October, Binance entered into an agreement with a supplier of transaction analysis software on the blockchains Chainalysis, and in November with Refinitiv, which developed an automated solution for client verification.

Whether the ordinary users of the platform will feel the impact of the integration of IdentityMind tools on themselves, the exchange does not specify.
