Bitcoin Press Release: Digipharm is excited to announce our official cooperation with Swisscom Blockchain, founded by Swisscom.

March 31, 2018 Zug, SwitzerlandWith over 11.6bil CH (12.2bil USD) revenue in 2017, Swisscom is Switzerland’s leading telecommunications company and one of its leading IT companies. Two-thirds of the Swiss population use the Swisscom Network, and 51.0% of the company is owned by the Swiss Confederation.

Ahmed Abdulla, Founder and CEO of Digipharm Commented;

“Our alliance with Swisscom Blockchain as our technical development partners is somewhat unprecedented in the industry and a big step towards the application of Digipharms’ solutions in real world settings. With this agreement we are able to accelerate the development of robust, scalable platforms with the highest levels of credibility, data privacy and inherent security. We are working extremely hard, hand in hand with the world class team at Swisscom Blockchain to bring fair pricing to healthcare and push the transition towards personalised therapy. This is massive news for the Digipharm team, our industry partners, investors and most importantly, healthcare systems and patients.”

As a forerunner in innovation and tech, Swisscom announced their venture into blockchain technology in September 2017, with the goal of furthering the development of blockchain applications in and for Switzerland. Since the announcement, Swisscom Blockchain has been approached by hundreds of blockchain-based startups, but they have remained highly selective about whom they choose to work with. Digipharm is collaborating with Swisscom Blockchain in the areas of development, infrastructure, and overall strategy. Our minimal viable product is currently in development, and will be ready for launch immediately following our Initial Coin Offering.

Sven Möller, Swisscom Blockchain Head of ICO Advisory

We believe their platforms and vision are well placed to lead the advance of real world uptake for blockchain technology in healthcare.

UTRUST Breaks $10 Million Soft Cap on Opening Day of Public ICO For Blockchain Payments Platform

Bitcoin Press Release: UTRUST has surpassed its $10 million soft cap target on only the first day of its public ICO on November 2nd 2017, picking up where it left off from the intense demand during its pre-ICO, which sold out in 90 minutes. The digital payments platform is set for reaching its milestone of raising $49 million in financial leverage.

November 3, 2017, Zug, Switzerland: Barely a day after the launch of its upgraded ICO, UTRUST continues to surpass expectations, with a high demand for its tokens pushing the total funds raised to $10 million. Having achieved the soft cap target, UTRUST now has a strong foundation upon which to achieve its mission of disrupting online payments with cryptocurrency.

The surge in token sales on opening day likely benefited from UTRUST’s ICO being one of the few of its kind to welcome conditional participation from US citizens. Accredited US investors are allowed to buy tokens on a first come, first served basis, and are subject to a 12-month vesting period applied to tokens sold.

Interest and demand for UTRUST tokens have been further buoyed by recent developments with regards to regulatory adjustments, which ensures that the ICO adheres to all rules and regulations by financial entities in the Swiss jurisdiction. This is in line with the startup’s commitment to protect customers by ensuring a legally-compliant and future-proof platform.

The project continues to gain pace and build momentum with multiple appearances at several key blockchain conferences scheduled across the globe. The UTRUST team carry the key messages of UTRUST’s mission to bridge some 2.5 billion unbanked people and merchants to the global financial economy through the innovative features of blockchain-based cryptocurrency.

UTRUST offers a simple solution focused on consumer protection. Acting as a mediator for transactions, both parties to transactions are relieved of liability. Users can purchase goods and services while merchants get paid, using their choice of cryptocurrency or traditional fiat.

About UTRUST

UTRUST has currently raised $10 Million and reached its soft cap in its ongoing public ICO.

UTRUST is the world’s first cryptocurrency payments platform to implement consumer protections on a mass scale. The company is building a global PayPal–like payments platform with extensive cryptocurrency support.

UTRUST’s end goal is to provide all the benefits of fast, secure, convenient, and inexpensive cryptocurrency transactions, in tandem with the world’s first cryptocurrency payment protections, which consumers need to fully embrace blockchain technology en masse.

With 2.5 billion unbanked people in Emerging Markets yet to benefit from financial inclusion, UTRUST is also planning to build the bridge to enable the unbanked worldwide to access the mainstream global financial system.

UTRUST ICO and Tokens

UTRUST’s public ICO launched on November 2nd to obtain a financial leverage of up to $49 million. The company will use the collected funds to establish key industry partnerships and to develop the world’s first PayPal-like cryptocurrency payments platform. The ERC20 compatible tokens are created over the Ethereum protocol, and can be used as a means of payment on UTRUST’s payment gateway along with other cryptocurrencies.

UTRUST’s token can be used for making zero fee payments to the thousands of merchants accepting any cryptocurrency via UTRUST, and be traded against other currencies on supported exchange platforms.

UTRUST will allocate a certain portion of the revenues to buyback and destroy the tokens in circulation. Being a deflationary currency by design, the demand for UTRUST tokens will increase with time, which combined with buyback should lead to appreciation in its market value.
