Are You Ready for UTRUST?

Blockchain payment platform UTRUST is going where no other of its kind has gone before. Leveraging a team of experts from various consumer and corporate business, financial, legal, and technical fields, it is building a groundbreaking service that promises to change the way the world uses cryptocurrency. By adopting a familiar experience combined with safety features that render payment fraud obsolete, UTRUST is building the payments platform of the future.

Many have hailed crypto coins as the currency of the next generation. One of their main selling points is their decentralized and secure blockchain-based origins. This solves many of the problems inherent in today’s fiat currencies and bank-based payment structures. However, cryptocurrency is still relatively unheard of in the Philippines and most of Asia, owing to the complications arising in their use.

 

UTRUST seeks to change this. The service is the ideal entry-point to increase the adoption of cryptocurrencies in emerging markets, by serving as a bridge between crypto and fiat users. Buyers will able to purchase any product using their favorite coin, without the extra hassle of converting to fiat first. The platform automatically does this, and delivers the payment in fiat money to the seller. This simple process makes UTRUST the PayPal of digital currencies.

 

However, the service really shines in its cutting-edge security features. Imagine being able to shop online with complete peace of mind, knowing you cannot be defrauded. Users can use UTRUST to pay for their purchases — the payment is kept safe in the service’s centralized escrow system, and is only delivered to the merchant upon receipt of the goods. In the unlikely case that a dispute arises, UTRUST’s dedicated resolution team takes action and resolves it within a fixed timeframe. No more waiting for weeks to get your funds back!

Home-based entrepreneurs will also benefit by adopting the system. Aside from lower selling fees and faster approval speeds, merchants no longer need to fear the threat of chargebacks. By tapping into the fiat financial system, utilizing an intuitive interface, and building trust between buyers and sellers, UTRUST makes transitioning into cryptocurrencies a breeze.

 

Nuno Correia, CEO, said: “UTRUST sees the potential of cryptocurrencies and digital technology to transform financial services provision in both developed and developing markets. The potential gains are particularly exciting in emerging markets where mobile phone penetration could recreate the role physical banking infrastructure plays in developed markets.

 

The service helps its users break away from the clunky banking infrastructure completely by using their mobile phones as financial hubs. Imagine being able to pay anything through your phone, without a bank account — purchases, mortgages, loans, and more. In a country whose mobile phones far outnumber its own population, UTRUST can change the way Filipinos think of finance.

Acer and G Shock Bridge the Gap in a #TimeForUS Campaign

Acer Philippines, a leading tech and innovations company, launches #TimeForUs, a movement that aims to narrow the divide between Gen Xers and millennials. Acer Philippines moves to bring two generations closer through technology, breaking down barriers built on misconceptions and misunderstandings.

“At Acer, we believe that it’s time to focus on bridging the generation divide,” shares Sue Ong-Lim, Sales and Marketing Director of Acer Philippines. “It’s imperative that we see that, amidst the differences between Gen Xers and millennials, they are also a lot alike.”


Acer Philippines also called on rock musician Basti Artadi and spoken word artist Juan Miguel Severo, both artistic icons of their craft and time, to collaborate and develop “Time For Us” a musical-and-spoken word piece to drive the message of the campaign. Basti Artadi, vocalist of the award-winning rock band Wolfgang, rose to fame in the mid- to late-90s, making him a legend among those from Gen X.

Toontastic 3D: New Storytelling App for Kids

Great news for parents and teachers all over the world! You can now download Toontastic 3D, a playful storytelling app for kids to draw, animate and narrate their own 3D cartoons.

Today’s digital devices and tools offer amazing opportunities for kids to imagine, invent and explore with technology—and perhaps most important of all, have fun! Over the years, we’ve worked closely with educators to build programs for kids to create through code, doodle their dreams, explore exotic locales with virtual reality, and even tour the Himalayas with a very friendly Yeti named Verne.. Today, we’re unveiling our latest project for kids—one that will give voice to their imaginations and transform their devices into playful and powerful tools for learning creative skills. It’s called Toontastic 3D.

With Toontastic 3D, kids can draw, animate and narrate their own adventures, news stories, school reports, and anything else they might dream up. All they need to do is move characters around on the screen and tell their story. It’s like a digital puppet theater… but with enormous interactive 3D worlds, dozens of customizable characters, 3D drawing tools, and an idea lab with sample stories to inspire new creations.

Like the original Toontastic (released in 2011 and widely praised by educators, kids, and parents around the globe), Toontastic 3D enables kids to build whatever they like—including book or science reports for school, design pitches, short stories and cartoons.

Toontastic 3D is available and free to download today for phones, tablets and select Chromebooks, on both the Google Play Store and iOS App Store. We hope the app will empower kids to imagine, invent and explore while developing skills for the creative jobs of tomorrow—whether they dream of becoming a filmmaker, a teacher, a designer, a cartoonist, or just want to explore the boundaries of their imaginations.

What most of its consumers are aware of is that Meralco (Manila Electric Company) is the country’s largest distributor of electrical power. But on top of it’s main job, Meralco also develops and creates innovations and on demand programs and technology with the help of its partner brands that further seeks ways and means to make life and living more efficient.

Senior VP and Head of Customer Retail Services and Corporate Communications, Chief Technology Advisor Gavin Barfield, Mr Carlo Casem, Senior Asst VP & Head, Corp Technology Strategy and Architecture with Head, Marketing Customer Solutions & Product Development, Mr. Jose Antonio Valdez.
mtechA partner brand gave us a quick demo on how with the help of an app the Smart plug can perform some household tasks such as curtains and light on and off features among many others. This is just like what we see in the movies where tasks for the home are remotely done with the aid of Bluetooth. 
mtech3Helloooo #Alexa! She’s your sexy and smart voice-activated device for your home! And we just her!
This was perhaps one of the most amusing demo we witnessed as Mr. Barfield gave voice commands to Alexa like playing a Britney Spears song and even answering to the question who the Canadian Prime Minster is? He jokingly shared that corner in the demo room is his “home” referring of course to the kind of bachelor set up in his condo residence mused by a fellow executive.
Meet her when you come and visit the#MTECH2016 Summit Experience Zone.

Picture 1640Happy and deeeeee-lighted to see very busy Meralco Spokesperson Mr. Joe Zaldarriaga again this time in his own territory.
