Singapore, April 09, 2019 -- Since launching its new and improved engine and platform, Singapore's COSS Exchange has seen its daily trading volume increase by almost threefold. With its overhaul out of the way, COSS has now shifted its focus to the COSS Fee Token, CFT for short. Not unlike the BNB (Binance Coin), the CFT is a trading token exclusive to the COSS.IO platform, arguably a more tangible use case than most cryptocurrencies in the current markets. Traders can get a 25% discount off trading fees when using CFT as an alternative to paying in the native tokens of the trading pairs. This will come as good news to market makers, institutional accounts and frequent traders of the platform. Other use cases of CFT such as ICO participation, community voting and others will be added on in the future. To sweeten the deal, CFT used as fees will also be included in the FSA (Fee Split Allocation), a popular feature of the COSS platform, where 50% of total trading fees on the platform is distributed via smart contract to all COSS token holders, allowing them to passively accumulate value by simply holding COSS tokens. COSS also offers both dust conversion and FSA conversion (coming soon) to CFT. From a total supply of 240 million tokens, half of that number, 120 million, will be available for sale. The rest will be set aside for the COSS Affiliate Program, promos, airdrops, cross platform partnerships and a reserve pool for bonuses and burning. With Zeppelin's burn function built into the token smart contract to schedule periodic coin burns, the total CFT supply will be adjusted automatically. The burn is fixed at 1M CFT tokens every month until the maximum supply is halved. This transparent burn model ensures an increase in the value of CFT held by its users. To kick off the CFT token, COSS.IO is currently running a huge trading promo. Unlike previous promotions where trading was specified to a certain pair, this promo includes trading of all pairs . . .

Economic uncertainty remains a key challenge for South Africans, with the prospect of higher electricity prices, and rising fuel costs affecting consumers’ disposable income. This economic pressure means more people are tightening their belts and looking for ways to save money. However, choosing the cheapest insurance option may not turn out to be the wisest decision in the event you have to claim. Momentum Short-term Insurance (MSTI) Head of Operations, Vickey Swanevelder, says there are several important factors consumers should consider before buying insurance. “While it is understandable that price is a major consideration, this should not be the only factor influencing your buying decision. There are other important factors to take into account to ensure you are adequately covered.” Buying peace of mind “When buying car insurance, you are ultimately buying peace of mind. You need the assurance that if you have to claim, the insurer will be able to honour your claim. Buying cheaper car insurance could also mean you have limited services available. That’s why it is important to look beyond price and consider the services and benefits available to you: is 24/7 roadside or home emergency assistance available, is the excess fixed or a percentage of the cost of the claim.” Swanevelder shares other critical factors to consider when insuring your car: Comprehensive versus limited cover The type of cover you choose is dependent on your needs. Are you on the road every day or is the car parked in a garage and only used on weekends? Swanevelder also notes there is often a battle between price and cover for consumers. “You may want to choose cover that is only limited to fire, theft and third party as it might be cheaper. However, if you crash into your neighbour’s wall, it is only the damage to the property that will be covered and not the impact of damages to your car. Having limited cover is still better than having no insurance at all. With . . .
AltCoinTrader, one of South Africa's oldest cryptocurrency exchanges has been providing crypto services in and around the southern part of Africa since 2015 and is one of the only exchanges that provides its community with forked coins. The main vision of the exchange according to Senior Partner, Richard De Sousa is to provide easy accessible crypto services to communities that struggle with traditional banking systems. The demand for altcoins in the country is rapidly growing, and often local exchanges with fiat on-ramps are used as a gateway to international exchanges to facilitate top performing crypto acquisitions. AltCoinTrader has identified a niche space and has listed the top 20 CoinMarketCap coins on its platform to provide traders with easy access to these markets. The BTT airdrop is set to continue every month for six years and is an incredible way for TRON to partner with AltCoinTrader in achieving the exchange's vision. Airdrops like BTT provide the exchange’s clients with all of their benefits of holding or trading TRX on the platform. BTT is set to also be traded on AltCoinTrader in the near future. De Sousa says,"having a fully automated integration with local banks has enhanced the company's ability to handle the volume of customers with ease. The exchange platform provides the most sophisticated fiat system in the country and also caters for Credit or Debit Card deposits thereby making crypto acquisitions readily available in South Africa and internationally." TRON has many followers in South Africa who are constantly looking to technologies like TRX to solve real problems and stimulate crypto growth in the country . The market is set to expand substantially and initiatives like the BTT token airdrop will assist in revitalizing crypto communities globally.

In South Africa, over 60% of our residents live in informal settlements. This means that a substantial portion of our population cannot open a bank account, cannot deposit their hard-earned cash safely, cannot send or receive EFTs and cannot grow their businesses. It is with this in mind that Hello Paisa, in partnership with Sasfin Bank, has launched a new banking initiative that is set to revolutionise the banking experience in South Africa. They have a single vision: to improve the lives of all South African residents through easily accessible, tech-fuelled solutions. What is fundamentally unique about Hello Paisa’s tech is that everything - and we mean everything - is built in-house, from the ground up. In fact, the only technology that Hello Group has outsourced to date is from Sasfin, to develop their banking infrastructure. From governance, risk and compliance to user experience development, Hello Paisa is passionate about consistent innovation on the ground to keep ahead of the competition. After all, sustainable and profound change can only be achieved through exceptional software. According to Shaazim Khamissa, the Chief Technology Officer of Hello Group, it is these insights that set Hello Paisa’s banking solution apart from their competitors. “Because Hello Paisa takes a greenfields approach to technology and we build up all of our structures based on first principles, it makes us far more agile and responsive to our consumer’s needs. We have the rare opportunity to monitor user behaviour across a spectrum of services, we have unprecedented insight into what problems our consumers have, and how better we can serve them. Because we work so closely with this data and ultimately have a single view of the customer, we have the opportunity to be both proactive and reactive to execute quick iterations to satisfy their needs.” As the first company to be authorised as an Independent Money Transfer Operator in South Africa, Hello Paisa is no stranger to . . .
