Saifu facilitates crypto-fiat transactions, enhancing accessibility of GCOX’s services
Berlin, 3rd July 2018 – Singapore-based celebrity crypto exchange Global Crypto Offering Exchange (GCOX) today announced its signing of a partnership with Saifu, a payment services provider based and licensed in the Czech Republic, which will lend improved accessibility and security to GCOX’s platforms.
Saifu offers a convenient solution to the problem of accessibility in crypto through its ‘one-stop-shop’ approach: its platform features services provided by a traditional bank – checking accounts, money transfers, currency exchanges, and a mobile app – while also allowing users to exchange money between fiat and cryptocurrencies. In addition, Saifu offers market-leading, bank-grade security for cryptocurrencies developed in partnership with French cybersecurity expert, Thales. Saifu will also provide its users with MasterCard prepaid cards and card acquiring services.
GCOX aims to bridge the gap between the entertainment industry, valued at US$2.2 trillion, and the burgeoning blockchain crypto market, leveraging the technology to revolutionise the interaction between celebrities and fans by bringing about closer engagement on its innovative platforms – Celeb-listing, Celeb-connect, Celebreneur and Celeb-charity. Slated to be the first platform of its kind in the world where celebrities and brands can leverage on the blockchain technology to revolutionise and redefine popularity, GCOX enables celebrities to create and list their personal crypto tokens on its blockchain called Acclaim.
According to Saifu’s co-founder Alexander Legoshin, Saifu aims to bridge the gap between fiat and crypto, and reduce entry barriers that currently stand in the way of more widespread adoption of crypto.
GCOX co-founder and CEO Sir Dr Jeffrey Lin said, “I am delighted to announce the signing of this agreement between GCOX and Saifu. This strategic partnership will significantly strengthen the GCOX platform by providing our users with unparalleled accessibility, security, and convenience, and marks our commitment to furthering the mainstream adoption of crypto and blockchain. Above all, it will enable us to provide a more integrated and seamless experience for our users.”
