President of Bit-X Financial Corp. (OTCQB: BITXF) Talks About Pending Launch of Company’s Bitcoin Exchange and How Bitcoin Is Gaining Recognition in Major Financial Circles

Marketwired

POINT ROBERTS, WA and NEW YORK, NY–(Marketwired – May 28, 2015) – Investorideas.com, a global news source covering leading sectors including Bitcoin and payment technology issues an exclusive interview with Mr. Brad Moynes, President of Bit-X Financial Corp. (OTCQB: BITXF).

Brad shares insight on the history of his company, the pending launch of the company’s Bitcoin exchange and recent developments in the Bitcoin sector that have legitimized Bitcoin in the financial community, making some predict that it may replace traditional currency in the future.

As one of the few publicly traded companies in the space, Brad talks about the future of Bitcoin as a digital currency and how his company is posturing to be part of the evolution of currency.

Interview: 

Q: investorideas.com 

Brad, can you start by giving us a brief history of your company and why you decided to participate in the Bitcoin market?

A: Brad Moynes, President of Bit-X Financial

After several years of evaluating various technology start-up opportunities, in 2012 I became aware of Bitcoin and the Blockchain. It was exactly what I wanted to get involved with; a new decentralized technology that combined finance, currency, trading and the ability to transfer a store of value (money) between end users instantly, with no intermediaries, at a very low cost. This was also a brand new segment of innovation that is positioned for massive growth, unlike other stagnant industry sectors like traditional banking. This seemed like a really good idea — world changing potential — and I became fascinated with the technology and its potential, whereby anyone could become their own bank.

Q: investorideas.com 

For investors unfamiliar with the technology behind Bitcoin can you explain what Blockchain is and how significant it is? I have heard quotes that it is considered “as important of an opportunity as the creation of the Internet itself.”

A: Brad Moynes, President of Bit-X Financial

The Blockchain (created 2009) is very powerful invention and could become as big as the internet itself. It is a public ledger of all Bitcoin transactions that have ever been executed. It is constantly growing as “completed” blocks are added to it with a new set of recordings. The blocks are added to the Blockchain in a linear, chronological order. Bitcoin is the financial application of the Blockchain and the most important.

Q: investorideas.com 

The New York Stock Exchange launched a Bitcoin index last week. Nasdaq Stock Exchange, Goldman Sachs, Richard Branson and other big names in the financial markets are all getting on board with Bitcoin. What does that mean for a company like yours and the industry overall?

A: Brad Moynes, President of Bit-X Financial

Many of these large institutions including the Nasdaq, NYSE and Goldman provide awareness about Bitcoin to the masses. It validates the technology and says to the market, “pay attention, there is something special here.” A start-up such as Bit-X Financial stands to gain tremendously from these endorsements and large-scale investments into the Bitcoin ecosystem, as it can lead to price increases in Bitcoin and overall consumer awareness.

BITXF is a digital exchange whereby users can buy & sell Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies. Blue chip participants will become a catalyst for BITXF to launch successfully and become universally acceptable.

Q: investorideas.com 

You are about to launch your Bitcoin exchange in June. What can users expect to see once it’s live in terms of service features?

A: Brad Moynes, President of Bit-X Financial

Some of the service features of the proprietary trading and matching engine have been pioneered from the ground up, leveraging the skills of experienced developers with respected and long-standing careers working for low latency software development firms. It is designed to manage high volume, high throughput, and low latency trading and was modeled on the same LMAX pattern now also leveraged by the world’s largest Investment Banks.

This investment grade trading platform has a simple and user-friendly UI for users to buy and sell all major crypto currencies. It also features one consolidated shared order book for blended multi-currency settlement in addition to real time FX pricing and risk management.

The order engine delivers pre-scan indicative pricing and users can choose to either fix the quantity of Bitcoins or fix the price paid for every order. Lock in a guaranteed execution or alternatively lock in the ultimate price you’re prepared to pay for your order; the choice remains yours. And this all relies on an order engine that achieves low latency performance along with the reliability of an exchange that has been verified in supporting millions of daily transactions.

At the start, our platform will offer trading in Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, Stellar and Ripple. As we grow, we will earn listing fees to other crypto-assets who are seeking access to a trading platform and liquidity.

Q: investorideas.com 

For any users concerned about security, how is your exchange addressing this issue?

A: Brad Moynes, President of Bit-X Financial

BITXF takes security very seriously. Security is the cornerstone of the platform which is the most secure on the market today. We provide a 3-level login verification that includes a 2-step process to login, 3 levels of verification for withdrawals. This provides our users extra protection to prevent accounts from unauthorized access. Other than your regular password, you will be asked to enter a real-time password generated by Google Authenticator. To provide you an extra level of security, when you withdraw, you will need to activate a link on the verification email to complete the request.

SSL ENCRYPTION

We use 128-bit encryption to encrypt all communication between you and our website. This is the highest encryption available and is used as the gold standard for all secure communication on the net.

DDOS PROTECTION

We leverage one of the world’s strongest forms of protection against Distributed Denial of Service attacks. We do not pretend to do this by ourselves and partner with multiple third-parties who have proven to mitigate some of the largest DDOS attacks in Internet history.

PASSWORDS

We do not use MD5 hashing to encrypt your password. To avoid common weaknesses, our proprietary procedures are designed to provide you, our valued clients, with the peace of mind that comes from our Next Level security implementation.

DB SECURITY

Our databases are encrypted and protected against SQL injection attacks. We also do hourly backups where we send the backups off-site to multiple locations.

STATE OF THE ART INFRASTRUCTURE

The platform is hosted in Tier 3+ ISO 27001/9001 compliant data centers. Digital currencies are not stored with cloud providers.

MULTI-FIREWALL PROTECTION

We closely monitor all incoming and outgoing traffic in a very stringent manner to ensure we prevent our network from malicious attack and injection as well as data threats.

BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLANNING

We have process and controls in place to deal with outages or attacks. Emails will be sent out to notify you of alternative ways to get back into our site. Our site and funds are totally segregated so you can be assured your funds are safe with us.

REGULAR STRESS & SOAK TESTING

Our technology is immediately scalable. Our regular stress testing has proven it achieves low latency processing and we’ve soak-tested to over 10 million transactions within a 24 hour period. Translation: our engine and underlying infrastructure can handle load, and lots of it.

COMPLIANCE FRAMEWORK

We insist on a comprehensive and thorough KYC (Know-Your-Customer) and AML (Anti Money Laundering) compliance framework. This includes the monitoring of suspicious transactions and obligatory reporting to local regulators and other compliance bodies.

Our AML and KYC policies differ depending on the country of origin of which our clients are located, and furthermore recorded through the BITXF registration process. Our specific policies are detailed within our Terms of Use and which you must accept as per the new user registration process. Our robust compliance framework ensures that regulatory requirements are being adhered to at both a local and global level, providing the highest levels of trust and ensuring the Site continues to operate reliably for the long term.

Q: investorideas.com 

Can you tell us about the significance of your Exclusive Bitcoin Exchange and Services Agreement with Hong Kong based ANX, announced in April? Will the coin exchange be called Bit-X Financial or will there be a different trade name and branding concept?

A: Brad Moynes, President of Bit-X Financial

Partnering with ANX, a Bitcoin Exchange industry leader, will provide BITXF and our shareholders a turn-key solution to gain immediate exposure to Bitcoin while leveraging the ANX technical and support assets as we prepare to go live.

Among the many initiatives occurring with our Company at the moment we have yet to announce what the exchange trade name and branding will be. We want to be original and come up with something unique, something that has not been done before and we plan to release that in the upcoming weeks prior to our go-live date. The public company (BITXF) will be the parent company that owns 100% of the newly branded exchange.

Q: investorideas.com 

In closing what are your goals following the launch and roll out of the site in June and how do you see your company playing an integral role in the future of Bitcoin?

A: Brad Moynes, President of Bit-X Financial

Our go-live date is on track and we fully expect to launch our world-class proprietary trading platform and provide our users a simple efficient way to trade Bitcoin. Our goals following the launch will be to provide our users a safe, secure and fully compliant Bitcoin exchange experience at a low cost. We are a customer service orientated company and we expect to be the best when it comes to customer support responses and solutions.

We are also in the planning and development stage of a new Blockchain technology concept that may see BITXF become the first public company to offer such a technology and offer it to third parties worldwide. More details regarding this excited new concept will be provided as they materialize.

ISBG packs 1-2 Punch with Besado Tequila and Dziaq Liqueur


ISBG packs 1-2 Punch with Besado Tequila and Dziaq Liqueur

PR Newswire

HOUSTON, May 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — International Spirit and Beverage Group (a Nevada Corporation) (ISBG) has made a splash this month with the acquisitions of Besado Tequila and Dziaq Liqueur. Jeff Freiberger, ISBG’s Chief Operating Officer, recognized the opportunity for the company to take on the two Besado tequila lines, Besado Platinum and Besado Oro, and the Dziaq brand as strategic assets in the development of the ISBG portfolio.

“I knew we had the ability to take on a controlling interest in these brands while maintaining a viable share structure for future growth,” Freiberger said. “These brands will be a valuable asset and we acquired them at the right price; one that serves well the shareholders of both companies.”
In addition to the flexibility offered by ISBG’s February retirement of 280 million shares, Freiberger had another variable working in his favor. Besado tequila’s parent company ran into insurmountable difficulties raising the needed funds to move into the production and distribution phase with the brand.

“This is an acquisition that makes sense for both companies as it was no secret that unfortunate corporate issues hindered Mr. Pierce’s ability to raise the capital needed to fund the bottling, marketing and distribution of these products,” Freiberger said. “The potential of the Besado tequila brands, combined with our national distribution capabilities, adds some sizzle to our stable of brands and will bolster the bottom lines of both companies.”

While Besado is the proverbial “rookie” on the team with a ton of promise, the veteran Dziaq brand is getting a new carbonated brand extension along with a new look for 2015.
Dziaq will launch a line of wine-based products which will provide ISBG with double the retail impact factor of its spirit-based parent. Vibrant re-packaging and formulation is underway that not only provides the Dziaq brand extension with a fresh modern look, but also reduces the per unit cost by over 40%.

“There will be two new offerings that are lightly carbonated and ready-to-serve style beverages, available in both 750 ml bottle and single-serve formats,” Freiberger said. “This will allow activations throughout multi-channel store systems including national grocery and supermarket outlets as well as national gas and convenience store chains.”

Both premium cocktail lines have been crafted in a frizzante style with the first infusing pomegranate, lychee and dragon fruit while the second premium wine-based cocktail mixes mango, goji berry and passion fruit into a light, refreshing and delicious beverage.

“Our plan is to launch Besado Tequila and Dziaq Liqueur in select, key markets over the summer,” Freiberger said. “Then in the early fall, ISBG will launch the Dziaq brand extensions in time to ramp up for the high-volume OND (October, November, December) season.”
The company website for ISBG is currently under construction. Check out our progress at http://www.isbg.global

NXT-ID, Inc. Research Note Update from SoundView; Commercial Ramp of Wocket Smart Wallet


NXT-ID, Inc. Research Note Update from SoundView; Commercial Ramp of Wocket Smart Wallet

PR Newswire

BOSTON, May 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — SoundView Technology Group issues a new research note on the NXT-ID, Inc. (NXTD) Wocket smart wallet (www.wocketwallet.com)

The following is an excerpt to the report.
Company Update

Back in March we published an NXT-ID update note on the first “early access” Wockets shipping which allowed the company to gather feedback from field use. I had good success with my own Wocket even though it was a pre-release version which had a handmade prototype card that was too thick for some types of usage.

Sixty days later, NXT-ID is preparing to fulfill their existing pre-orders this month which will put several hundred units into the market. The plan for June is to ship a few thousand units to customers who have requested invitations to order a unit. By July, the company should reach their baseline production capability of 10,000 units/month, which will coincide with initiatives in marketing and sales as well as some new distribution partners who will help with market penetration and fulfillment.
What follows are some new usage notes for the commercial version and a restatement of our assumptions behind our model that supports an NXTD intrinsic value of $8/share for 2015 and path to $17 in 2016.

Using the New Wocket

I took my updated Wocket out for a spin and noticed a few additional features. First of all, the card is production quality and has my name on it. It’s thin enough to put into any device from swipe to dip to full insertion, so I can use it in any scenario. There’s also a subtle backlight, so it’s easier to use in the dark which comes up in cabs and romantic restaurants.

There is one new minor feature that turned out to be a major benefit for me – the “note” option. I believe that this is a giant differentiator between the Wocket and “smart card” solutions like Coin. The Wocket has a place that effectively eliminates all those little slips of paper you often put in your wallet – like the access code for a gate you sometimes go through, the number for AAA and your membership number, your passport number, etc. These all fit into a class of information that is short, alphanumeric and seldom used. Yes, you can have all of this on your phone, but that’s not the best place for it in terms of security or ease of access.

The day to day use of the card works just fine in all types of scenarios – we used both Visa and American Express credit cards, and a debit card too. Again, we found the awareness level of the technology in general “that’s one of those cards you can store all your cards on.” Where discussion ensued, the top issue was security. When I described the encryption, lack of network access, PIN and biometric identification, every person responded favorably across a broad demographic range. Anecdotally I’d say the older a person was, the more concerned they seemed to be with security and the more thrilled to feel that they could make their cards more secure with this kind of approach.

Not every reader works with the Wocket, so one does need to keep a single card along with your ID or license in the extra pocket. For example, my tennis club in NY is a small one with a reader literally taped to the counter and it wouldn’t swipe the Wocket card even with several attempts. Our sample size isn’t big enough to make specific predictions, but for us we had about a 9 out of 10 success rate. Not 100%, but for me good enough. It’s worth noting that the design of the Wocket doesn’t prevent it from eventually reaching the goal of 100% acceptance but it’s not there yet.

Conclusion

NXTD investors have had to endure fairly high volatility as the shares surged on news of initial shipments and sagged as the company went into “heads down mode” to iron out the last bits for commercial production and get manufacturing scaled up to begin to deliver pre-orders.
In our March note, we pointed out the two remaining major risks as the production ramp and consumer reaction/adoption. Now that we have a production unit in our hands and pre-orders are to be filled this month, the production ramp risk is fading away and the focus will now shift to consumer adoption.

Fortunately, NXTD is not alone in their enthusiasm for the Wocket. Ever since CES in January, there has been strong and steady interest from a range of distribution partners. We expect the ramp in marketing in the July timeframe will coincide with one or more of the smaller partners helping the Wocket to reach more consumers.

We remain comfortable with our 40,000 unit assumption for 2015, which we will revise if the company succeeds in reaching close to 10,000 units in July or August. Aggregating a number of market data points, there is initial demand from early adopters for something like 100,000 to 200,000 units right now, and this number will increase as more people see, feel and use the technology.
Despite a few delays, the company performance is consistent with our existing IV model shown below and we are not making any changes to it yet. Our current IV estimate remains $8 for this year and would step up sharply to $17 in 2016 with continued success.

We do plan to break down our volume and revenue estimates into quarterly periods so we can compute annual trajectory more accurately. Based on current plans, NXT-ID should be able to produce close to 30,000 units in Q3 and even more in Q4. Obviously, if the demand is adequate, they would greatly exceed our current 40,000 unit target for the year.

“4orth Enterprises in Fort Worth, Texas has received product and is already distributing to retail stores in the area. CEO Prajwal Bohara will certainly benefit from the RHINO Marketing social media campaign that will be starting in Austin as well as breaking news that the State of Texas is making progress in approving a Medical Marijuana bill. Prajwal can be reached at 702-338-2473 for any product need in the Fort Worth-Dallas area.”
Company update:
Last week our distributor in Austin, Texas held an in store demo at a new retail location located at 7114 South I 35 in Austin.

Mark Cleveland of Rocky Mountain High Austin can be reached at 512-663-1664 for inquiries regarding product information or stores in the Austin area.
The first Rocky Mountain High promotion van is in the graphics shop and will be finished in a few days. The company will be posting pictures on our FaceBook page upon completion.

Pictures of the van will be posted on our Facebook page as soon as it is completed,” stated Jerry Grisaffi, Founder of THCZ. “In addition to the new RMH Promotional Van, we are currently hiring the Rocky Mountain High’s Hemp Hotties squad in conjunction with our retail product launch initiative targeting the Austin, Texas area. These lovely girls will be initially visiting retailers and will also be attending select public events in the Austin, Texas area. Future plans will be to expand Nationwide.”
Grisaffi continued, “The planned release of an exciting fifth flavor has been pushed back a few weeks due to accelerated growth of the Company and the need to increase inventory to satisfy distributor demands for product. Several of our distributors have ordered additional product as sales have been very brisk in various retail locations. Our fourth production run, which is set for July, may have to be moved forward a few weeks to satisfy distributor demands.”

More than 30,000 Wallaby Financial customers currently on the Wallaby Card waiting list will receive special invitation e-mails to buy a Wocket Smart Wallet, which is secured by voice biometrics.

The smart wallet, from Oxford, Conn.-based NXT-ID, works without a mobile phone or cloud, and can carry up to 10,000 cards.

Matthew Goldman, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Wallaby Financial, said, “Our customers love the convenience that Wallaby offers them, but the missing piece has been having all their cards available when they need them. We are excited about this partnership with Wocket because it allows our members to carry all of their membership, payment, rewards, gift cards, and more with just a single card. We’re thrilled to give our members an advanced opportunity to enjoy the benefits of Wocket alongside our own solutions.”

Gino Pereira, Chief Executive Officer of NXT-ID, said, “Wallaby has an amazing technology and a proven product that helps its members with everyday card selection. Wocket is a great match for Wallaby users because now they can pair the benefit of maximizing rewards with the convenience of having all their cards with them.”

DALLAS, TX–(Marketwired – May 5, 2015) – Totally Hemp Crazy Inc. (OTC PINK: THCZ) announced today it will be featured on the national radio show “Your Monies Worth” on Friday, May 15th at 12 noon. Tom Shuman, CEO of THCZ, and Jerry Grisaffi, Founder of THCZ, will be interviewed by longtime radio host Mick Bazsuly of WWNN AM Miami-Fort Lauderdale.

The interview will be aired live worldwide on: http://www.wwnnradio.com/

Webcast can be found at: http://www.iheart.com/ and YouTube.com.

The radio show “Your Monies Worth” has been continuously aired for thirteen years and is centered on interesting growth companies with unique potential.

Mick Bazsuly commented, “Hemp is the hottest industry today with many States now following the leads of the nation’s capital, Colorado, Washington State and Oregon as to immediate legalization. Its medical values are well known and the production being sold has all those benefits without the dangers of the caffeine overload as most energy drinks have today.”

Bazsuly continued, “This week’s radio show will also feature Cleartronics, another company of interest. We are always looking for companies we believe are heading north with rapid growth. These two solid growth companies represent leaders in their respective industries.”

Jerry Grisaffi, Founder of Totally Hemp Crazy, stated, “The Rocky Mountain High retail product launch is underway and based on initial sales and consumer reactions, we are convinced we have something special. In just a few short months, production has exceeded 1,000,000 units and we have another larger production run scheduled for June. We are confident our rapid growth will lead to a nationwide hemp infused drink sensation. Based on the current feedback from other parties, we are not alone in that belief.”
