Mr. David Flores Resigns from Board Paving the Way to add New Strategic Members


SAN DIEGO, Jan. 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Global Payout Inc. (OTCPink:GOHE) (“Global” or the “Company”) would like to announce to its valued shareholders that effective January 31, 2020, Mr. David A. Flores will be stepping down from his role as the Company’s Chief Operating Officer and interim Chief Financial Officer. This move comes as part of the Company’s ongoing reorganization with the intent to promote diversification and new venture opportunities for its long-term profitability objectives. Mr. Flores’s resignation from Global Payout also extends to his role as Executive Vice President of the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, MTrac Tech Corporation and his current seat as a GOHE Board Member.

Mr. Flores joined the Global Payout executive team in June 2018 following the Company’s reverse triangular merger with MoneyTrac Technology. Since then, he has been instrumental in guiding the Company through the successful completion of its two-year audit, in addition to playing a key leadership role alongside CEO, Vanessa Luna in the internal restructuring of the Company and effective launch of the MTrac brand.

“I am eternally appreciative of the hard work, determination and sacrifice Mr. Flores has demonstrated over the last year and a half with Global Payout,” said Global Payout CEO, Vanessa Luna. “His diligence and intellect were instrumental in working effectively with our accountants and auditors to successfully complete our two-year audit despite the significant challenges and frustrations that were encountered throughout its process. The positive impact on our company can be traced back to before he and I took control of Global Payout in June of 2018 and to the foundation he helped to develop for MoneyTrac Technology, which was the precursor to the success we have achieved with MTrac Tech. While his presence on our team will be missed, I am appreciative of the job he did to develop an incredibly stable foundational structure for the company and one that I am excited to continue building and expanding from.” 

“I will be forever grateful of the incredible opportunity I have had to help reshape and restructure the core of this company,” said David Flores. “Opportunities such as the one I have had here with Global Payout are few and far between in one’s career. Much of my focus over the last year and a half has been directed towards the effective rehabilitation of the company’s internal structure with the intent to position it for long-term success and profitability. The two-year audit has unquestionably been one of the largest obstacles this company has had to clear in order to get itself on a path to profitability and with that obstacle finally in our rearview mirror, I am confident that this is the best moment for me to step aside and allow the vision of Ms. Luna to take lead. I do, however, intend to continue to lend my knowledge and expertise to Ms. Luna and the company from time-to-time and when it is called upon. Global Payout in my opinion, is ready to position itself for far greater business ventures, potential mergers and acquisitions, and prestigious new business partners. The newly available board seat will be offered to strategic partners that can help the Company move to the next level.”

In closing, David Flores stated, “I would like to personally thank all of the valued shareholders for your ongoing support and assure you I will be supporting alongside you as a shareholder and believer in the Global Payout team.”

Koinly Launches Cryptocurrency Tax Calculator for UK Traders



Koinly is a fast growing crypto tax startup that promises to help bitcoin investors prepare their crypto tax reports in a fast and efficient manner. By linking exchange accounts and public wallet addresses with Koinly, investors can get a detailed capital gains report within a matter of minutes.

UK’s capital gains system is one of the most complex and with the thousands of transactions that crypto investors can quickly rake up – there is simply no way to manually do all the calculations. Our aim with Koinly is to make it easy for both crypto traders and accountants to generate their capital gains tax forms,” said Robin Singh, founder of Koinly.

Taxes are an integral part of any financial system and it is a good sign that tax authorities are coming out with clear guidance around cryptocurrencies instead of blanket banning them. However, added tax liabilities may become a deterrent to the mainstream adoption of Bitcoin so tax solutions such as Koinly are likely to play a crucial role in overcoming this.

The platform currently supports some 400 crypto exchanges and wallets as well as 6000 cryptocurrencies. It also comes with tax-planning features that can help investors preview and plan their trades in a tax-efficient manner. Some other features:

–  Income reports for Mining, Staking and DeFi interest.
–  Capital gains summary form that can be submitted to the HMRC
–  Full support for crypto taxes in UK including Share Pooling

HMRC quietly preparing for a clampdown

In August of 2019, the HMRC requested information about cryptocurrency investors from various UK based exchanges such as eToro, CEX.io and Coinbase. This is clearly an attempt to locate investors that have avoided paying tax on their trades. A similar move was also made by the US tax authorities which led to the identification of some 10000 traders, all of whom received letters from the tax agency last year.

LiteLink Technologies Subsidiary uBUCK Technologies Completes Second Tranche of Private Placement to Fuel Growth



LiteLink Technologies Inc. (“LiteLink”) (CSE:LLT)(OTC:LLNKF)(FRA:C0B), a key player in logistics platforms and payment solutions, is pleased to announce that its subsidiary uBUCK Technologies SEZC (“uBUCK”) has closed the second tranche of a non-brokered, non-dilutive private placement previously announced on September 23, 2019.

Under the second tranche, uBUCK issued 1,000,000 preferred shares at a price of US$0.50 per share for gross proceeds of US$500,000. Under the terms of the offering, uBUCK expects an additional minimum investment of US$1,500,000 will be made in exchange for 3,000,000 preferred shares at a price of US$0.50 per share by June 30, 2020.  The investor will also have the option to invest an additional US$2,500,000 for a total of 8,000,000 preferred shares at a price of US$0.50 per share by September 30, 2021.

Qohash launches its first commercial data security solution, aimed at protecting financial institutions



Qohash today announces the launch of its first data security solution to help financial institutions protect their sensitive data. With a focus on performance, the solution provides lightning-fast and accurate sensitive data classification along with support for data risk management and compliance. With the launch of this new solution, the company aims to significantly reduce the threat of insider breaches for financial institutions.


The Quebec-based company delivers a hybrid-SaaS solution designed to find and risk-manage sensitive data at scale. It features a web-based dashboard for configuration and reporting and on-premises components for analysis. By using Qohash, customers are able to scan sensitive data while keeping it under their constant control.

The platform runs a number of data sources, including cloud, shared drives, devices, and proxies, meaning thousands of file types are supported, and new connectivity is added with each update. Pilot deployments of Qohash’s solution are now available for financial institutions located in the USA and Canada, with the company focusing on making the solution completely available in MontrealToronto and New York.

Qohash has grown rapidly since its creation in January 2018 and continues to attract world-class data security and product talent with its mission to significantly reduce the threat of insider breaches. While the data discovery solutions market may be competitive, Qohash has been listening closely to its customers since the founders started shaping the company’s idea over two years ago. Today, Qohash bets on the superior performance of its solution and narrow focus on the financial sector to attract customers looking for better sensitive data management alternatives.

Data breaches continue to take place all over the world. During the third quarter of 2019, a Risk-Based Security report showed that data breaches went up by 33.3% over 2018. In fact, finance is being hit especially hard: the Boston Consulting Group found that cyberattacks hit financial services firms 300 times more than other companies.

Qohash helps financial institutions not be part of these statistics. Its arrival to the fintech and security market represents a big step forward for banks, insurance companies, wealth management firms, and other financial services providers looking for high-performance and scalable ways to protect against one of the most dangerous threats: insider breaches.

“Risk management professionals want to know exactly where their sensitive data is at all times, who has access to it, and how to reduce the risks associated with insider breaches,” said Jean Le Bouthillier, CEO at Qohash. “Customers have had enough of lethargic classification engines that won’t scale and are too complex to manage. We provide purpose-built, lightning-fast and accurate solutions that get the job done,” he added.

Qohash benefits from solid governmental support from both the Province of Quebec and the Government of Canada who recognize that innovation and vigilance in cybersecurity are crucial in today’s climate. Beyond the high-performance solution, the company sets its differentiating point with a team that has extensive knowledge of cybersecurity, data protection and product development.



Net1 to sell KSNET for $237 million


JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, Jan. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Net 1 UEPS Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: UEPS, JSE: NT1) (“Net1” or the “Company”) today announced that it has agreed to sell 100% of KSNET, Inc. (“KSNET”), a leading Republic of Korea (“South Korea”) payment processor, to Stonebridge Capital and Payletter for approximately $237 million. The transaction, which is not subject to a financing condition, is expected to close in March 2020.

“KSNET is a profitable and cash generative business, but operates autonomously and in a more developed economy with limited overlap with the group’s other activities. We also believe that the intrinsic value of KSNET was not appropriately reflected in Net1’s overall valuation. Therefore our Board commenced a strategic review of our various businesses and investments late last year, and ultimately decided to sell KSNET in order to focus more on our core strategy, boost liquidity and to maximize shareholder returns. We believe Stonebridge Capital and Payletter are the right strategic partners for KSNET, as they are committed to building further scale in the South Korean payments market,” said Herman Kotzé, CEO of Net1. “This transaction marks a significant milestone in our strategic plan, and allows management to further focus on its core strategy of providing fintech solutions for the underbanked in South Africa, Africa, Europe and other emerging economies as well as our new blockchain related products,” he concluded.

The Company will provide further details on its second quarter fiscal 2020 earnings call on February 7, 2020.

FT Partners acted as exclusive financial advisor to Net1 and Yulchon LLC served as legal counsel.

Finastra Strengthens Its Position in Israel With New Office Opening



Finastra is investing further in Israel with a new office in Kfar Saba, just outside Tel Aviv. The office, which is home to over 330 employees, offers more space for the Finastra team to grow as the company strengthens its position in the country, and provides an ultra-modern workspace to inspire creativity and facilitate collaboration. The move will help the company support technological and financial innovation in the region, and drive adoption of its open development platform, FusionFabric.cloud.

To mark the opening, Finastra welcomed an audience of banks, fintechs, government bodies and industry partners to a celebration event, with keynote speakers Chemi Peres (Co-Founder, Pitango Venture Capital) and Dr Amiram Appelbaum (Chief Scientist, Ministry of Economy and Industry). Also on the agenda, the “Fintech Factor” showcased four of Israel’s most innovative fintechs – AIOCRiskCoSonarax and Vala – who delivered rapid-fire pitches. AIO, voted as the favorite by the audience, is now integrating its solution to Finastra’s APIs through FusionFabric.cloud.

Eli Rosner, Chief Product and Technology Officer at Finastra, said, “Finastra has been operating in Israel for many years, and during the last few, we’ve seen a surge in the number of fintech developments. According to PitchBook data, fintechs headquartered in Israel raised over US$143 million in funding in 2018, 145% more than 2017’s $58 million. As we step up the pace of adoption on FusionFabric.cloud, it’s crucial for Finastra to have a more significant presence in the region and help drive innovation and collaboration in the industry. We look to strengthen our collaboration with local financial institutions, academia, fintechs and government bodies to achieve this.”

Sagive Greenspan, SVP, General Manager, Payments and General Manager of Finastra Israel said, “Israel has been Finastra’s main hub for payments for many years. We have developed a team of research and development and global services specialists who deliver payment solutions for some of the leading banks in the world. The new office offers a collaborative environment that will inspire our employees, breed creativity and encourage innovation. Ultimately, this will enable Finastra to increase its footprint with existing clients as well as to grow its customer base by positioning innovative solutions in payments and across other business lines.”

Finastra aims to become the most inclusive and diverse employer in fintech, a key part of which includes ensuring its offices deliver a modern working environment to drive collaboration. To facilitate this, the office in Israel blends some of the most modern technology with fun and creative décor, which includes themed scrum areas and a fully equipped music room.
