News summary:
– Unifying the collaboration portfolio to make life easier for users and IT alike
– Jabber to mirror Webex Teams by summer’s end
– Originally available for Webex Meetings, the AI-driven People Insights will be available across portfolio—calling, messaging, meetings, and even Jabber.

Whether you need to make a call, join a meeting, send an IM or solve an important problem with your whole team, Cisco has a device or app for that. Even better, we build the world-class network that can run it all. When you’re in charge of the hardware, software, devices, and network, it turns out amazing things are possible. We’re taking the friction out of your collaboration experience, so your team can move faster. We want to give you “magic moments” that make it fun to work together.

With that in mind, today we announce:

– the ability to enjoy the same awesome experience across all our collaboration tools. 
Have you ever climbed into the driver’s seat of a rental car and wondered:  How do I turn on the headlights? Or pair my phone to listen to my playlist? It’s frustrating—and distracting— when things aren’t as you want them to be.

We don’t want you to be frustrated or distracted when you switch between your collaboration tools. Everything should be where you want it to be. In fact, it shouldn’t feel like you’re switching anything at all when you move from a phone call to, say, a video meeting or to a team app to get up to speed on that big project.

In short, when it comes to your preferences, you should be able to set it and forget it.

We’ve been working hard to make that happen. As a result, all our devices are now on the same operating system. And all our apps now work together better than ever. The latest tangible proof of this labor of love? Jabber –our wildly popular app with tens of millions of users—will look and feel like Webex Teams. Do you prefer Jabber and your boss prefers Teams?  No worries. Type your note in Jabber and it’s going to immediately show up in the Teams app, just like that.

We call this a “unified experience”. And while it’s great for users, it is also amazing for IT teams. That’s because it helps them transition thousands of users to the cloud whenever the time is right, without having to plan for lots of training.

New places in our portfolio where you’ll encounter those frictionless and amazing moments.
In March we announced People Insights for Webex Meetings. Think of it as an executive assistant for the rest of us.  No matter where you fall on the org chart, you’ll get professional insights (based on publicly available information) about the people and companies you’re meeting with. This will help you have a great meeting and get amazing work done. We’re now bringing People Insights to the rest of the portfolio—calling, messaging, and even Jabber.

“We’re going to keep bringing customers layer after layer of rich intelligence and context, while also making sure we provide the best, most seamless experience, across our entire portfolio,” said Amy Chang, SVP, Cisco Collaboration. “We’re delivering technology that works smoothly together and is backed by intelligence and business insights. Our customers are going to enjoy massively personalized experiences that will transform the way they work.”

Customer Quotes:

Liberty Technology, Ben Johnson, CEO/Founder
“At Liberty Technology we are passionate about providing our customers the very best in collaboration user experiences to help in their digitization strategy. We have known that user engagement in meetings is increased with the Webex platform, so when we started testing Cisco’s People Insights capability it gave us a new perspective on how Cisco plans to enhance user productivity across the platform to make meetings more productive. Cisco engaged early to learn from Liberty Technology and we were able to provide vital feedback to help shape the outcome of this feature which shows that Cisco listens. Connecting with our customers is extremely critical to us and we have seen People Insights become a vital part of our meetings now and we wondered how we met without it.”

Charter Telecom Inc., Shawn Wilson, solutions architect
“The People Insights feature is a huge differentiator for Meetings and Webex. Great innovation!”

Chainalysis Launches First Actionable Real-Time Alerts for Suspicious Transactions Across 15 Cryptocurrencies

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Chainalysis, the blockchain analysis company, today announced the launch of suspicious cryptocurrency transaction alerts in Chainalysis Know Your Transaction (KYT), the real-time anti-money laundering (AML) compliance solution for monitoring cryptocurrency transactions. It is the first compliance alerts solution available across 15 cryptocurrencies.

Chainalysis KYT alerts are designed to help cryptocurrency businesses and financial institutions mitigate exposure to regulatory and reputational risk by helping compliance teams focus on the most urgent activity and enforce compliance policies while better allocating resources.

“As lawmakers and regulators focus their attention on the industry, it is more critical than ever that cryptocurrency businesses demonstrate compliance best practices,” said John Dempsey, VP Product, Chainalysis. “Every minute counts when managing exposure to sanctioned entities, hacked funds, darknet markets, and other illicit activities, which is why Chainalysis is investing in fast, actionable alerts to help our customers mitigate risk across cryptocurrencies.”

Chainalysis KYT has always provided real-time transaction monitoring for large volumes of cryptocurrency activity to identify high risk behavior, and now alerts are generated whenever a transfer involves a risky counterparty and crosses a value threshold. Alert levels include Severe, High, Medium, and Low, and are based on factors such as category, service, direct versus indirect exposure, direction of funds, and amount. Alerts are available for all 15 cryptocurrencies supported by Chainalysis, including Bitcoin, Ether, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, and top stablecoins and ERC-20 tokens such as Tether, Maker, and Dai, with additional cryptocurrencies coming soon.

With alerts functionality built directly into the user interface and API, cryptocurrency businesses and financial institutions can keep track of, investigate, or take action on risky transfers. Additionally, customers can customize risk parameters based on their own business policies to help allocate resources accordingly.

“As a New York Trust company we are required to monitor transactions on and off our platform,” said Michael Breu, Gemini’s Chief Compliance Officer.  “Tools like KYT alerts, which provide real time and ongoing blockchain analysis, coupled with Gemini’s own compliance policies, help us meet our regulatory obligations.”

For the First Time, Huobi Token Is Now Usable as an eCommerce Payment Method

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Huobi is pleased to announce that Huobi Token (HT) can now be used to purchase art, apparel, hardware, event tickets and more from the eCommerce and crypto news platform FomoHunt. This marks the first time HT can be used for eCommerce by the general public.

While HT can be used for all merchandise on the site, offerings at FomoHunt also now include exclusive Huobi-branded merchandise.

“Our partnership with FomoHunt allows us to do two big things at once,” said Helena He, Head of Global Operations. “First, it’s a big step in expanding HT’s usefulness outside our direct ecosystem and making it more accessible to the general public. Second, it gives members of our community direct access to Huobi-branded merchandise, which is something many have repeatedly been asking for.”

FomoHunt co-founder, James Lawrence, expressed optimism about the new partnership.

“Being able to work directly with Huobi is an amazing opportunity. We are working together to allow our community users to use Huobi Token and make real-world purchases for clothes, art, FomoHunt subscriptions, event tickets, and even mining hardware. FomoHunt looks forward to future collaborations with Huobi.”

Huobi has made developing HT a priority over the past eight months. For example, Huobi Prime and Huobi FastTrack, Huobi’s innovative premium coin launch platform and its new coin listing program, which respectively launched in March and June this year, both use HT as their main token of exchange. In July, Huobi implemented a series of tiered trading fee discounts for users based on HT holdings.

Founded in 2018 as an alternative to the disparate information found across the internet, FomoHunt is a discovery portal into the world of blockchain projects, founders, events, products, and news. FomoHunt aims to provide an easy and streamlined portal for blockchain newcomers and experienced veterans with unrivalled project information and up to date information.

Stablecoin partners facilitate fund transfers to personal bank accounts easily.

Crypto.com, the pioneering payments and cryptocurrency platform, is pleased to highlight two fiat withdrawal solutions via TrueUSD (TUSD) and Paxos Standard (PAX) stablecoins for Crypto.com App users.

Crypto.com has recently entered a partnership with TrustToken and Paxos Standard for Crypto.com Chain, which will allow merchants to get paid in USD.

As an extension to this partnership, Crypto.com App users can now redeem their TUSD or PAX 1-to-1 against USD, which will be wired directly to their personal bank accounts. This is an appealing use case for App users who want to monetize their crypto gains, holdings, or Crypto Credit loans.

To redeem stable coins against USD, users can do so via the TrustToken or Paxos Standard platform. For further instructions, please click here.

Kris Marszalek, Co-founder and CEO of Crypto.com said, “The team is committed to making efficient fiat withdrawal available to customers. As we work on more traditional solutions, we are pleased to share two important supporting solutions from our stablecoin partners.”

Tory Reiss, Co-Founder of TrustToken said, “We are excited to be deepening our collaboration with the Crypto.com team. Finding a reliable way to move fiat on and off their platforms continue to be a headache for crypto companies. At TrustToken, we are continuing to double down on this use case by building out strong compliance practices and adding additional payment rails.”

Scott Simpson, VP of Strategic Partnerships of PAXOS said, “We believe that building a vibrant ecosystem for PAX is crucial for increasing use in consumers’ daily lives. Our partnership with Crypto.com makes it easier for consumers to benefit from their crypto holdings and were excited to make this important functionality live.”
