ABCC Announces Opening of European HQ in Malta and Sponsorship of Delta Summit 2018

7 Aug 2018 – SINGAPORE: ABCC Digital Asset Exchange (ABCC), the world-class cryptocurrency exchange, has announced the opening of its first European headquarters in Malta as well as its sponsorship of the Delta Summit 2018, the Maltese government’s official blockchain event.

The strategic decision comes as part of ABCC’s ongoing commitment to strengthen its presence in Europe and beyond. The firm’s move is anticipated to create new employment and investment opportunities in the island nation.

Additionally, ABCC has partnered with Delta Summit to become an official sponsor. Set to be held from 3-5 October 2018 in Malta, the summit will convene startups, companies and investors to promote the exchange of insights and trends on a wide range of themes related to blockchain. Participating alongside the industry’s most prominent organizations, the exchange has committed to a sponsorship package of equal distinction to its first-tier counterparts.

In a bid to transform itself into a favorable investment destination for fintech, the Parliament of Malta has passed three bills into law to establish a regulatory framework for blockchain technology earlier this month. The bills include the Malta Digital Innovation Authority Act, the Innovative Technological Arrangement and Services Act, and the Virtual Financial Asset Act.

Commenting on the announcement, Junior Minister for Financial Services, Digital Economy and Innovation within the Office of the Prime Minister of Malta Silvio Schembri welcomed ABCC’s decision to establish its headquarters in Malta.

“This comes just a few weeks after the Maltese Parliament enacted into law the highly anticipated three bills which will pave the way for the creation of a new economic sector. I thank ABCC for putting their trust in Malta and for providing their input to implement our vision and make Malta The Blockchain Island. I look forward to ABCC’s participation in Delta Summit, Malta Government Official Blockchain event, which will exhibit how far Malta has gone in becoming a leader in DLT regulation,” said Schembri.

For his part, ABCC CEO Calvin Cheng said: “We are delighted to announce the opening of our first expansion into Europe and our partnership with Delta Summit. Indeed, we look forward to working closely with the Government of Malta and to support its transition into a digital innovation center of excellence.”

ABCC was established by an international team of industry experts with wide-ranging experiences across legal practices, financial services, blockchain technology and other technologies. Its prolific profile of prominent advisors includes Dr. Michael Frendo, former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Malta, who has shaped and spearheaded policy constitutions internationally and will offer guidance to the organization’s strategic development.

Since the launch of the platform’s token ABCC Token (AT) for Trade-to-Mine in early July, ABCC has soared to rank 5th globally on Coinhills. The AT has been open for trading since 25 July. As a key component of its digital asset ecosystem, AT plays a critical role in building consensus and creating and sharing value in the community. To learn more about AT, visit abcc.com

Philips Research Trying to Encourage Healthcare Industry to Utilize Blockchain

The widespread adoption of blockchain technology that has occurred over the past year has proven just how practical and far reaching the benefits of nascent technology is, but there has yet to be a widely used product that solves one of the world’s persisting issues: the coherence and security of healthcare data. Now, a group of researchers is trying to convince hospitals and healthcare providers that the solution to these problems is the blockchain. Issues Plaguing the Healthcare Industry There are multiple issues currently plaguing the healthcare industry, including the fragmentation and incoherence of data across multiple platforms, the persisting likelihood of data breaches, and the illegal use and monetization of patient’s private data. This past Summer, a cybersecurity breach at an Orlando-based Orthopedic Center exposed the private files of more than 19,000 patients, all due to a misconfigured software update that exposed the patients’ data on the internet. In a similar situation, healthcare company Nuance, experienced a system breach that led to a third party gaining full access to 45,000 patient records that were being stored on one of its medical transcription platforms. The breach, which was discovered in December of 2017, was so widespread that it warranted attention from the United States’ various law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, the DOJ, and the SEC. The agencies discovered that information including patient’s date of birth, full name, medical record number, diagnosis, care plans, and treatments, were all stolen by the nefarious actors. How Blockchain Could Fix the Healthcare Industry’s Problems Mark Hennessy, the lead researcher at Philips Research, recently spoke in an interview about how blockchain technology could increase the operational efficiency and security of healthcare provider’s data storage systems. Hennessey notes that Philips is developing what he describes as a “verifiable data exchange,” that isolates and secures data until it is needed for patient care. He also explains that the blockchain-based system would revolve around three main disciplines: anonymizing data, requesting data, and fulfilling requests. By using the blockchain, there can be a full and immutable trail of how data is used, who has accessed it, and who has seen it. “This is what we call ‘verifiable data exchange’ because you’ve got the actual audit trail of the request and the fulfillment of the request for data recorded,” Hennessy added. In the interview, Hennessey explained that one issue in implementing blockchain technology into the existing healthcare system is how trusting hospitals and providers are of the tech. “A lot of it comes down to trust and transparency. While you can trust a centralized server for storing the logs of each exchange, what we’re exploring is whether we can enhance that trust by decentralizing the storage of the logs between all the participants in a network.” Despite there being some skepticism surrounding the use of the blockchain, Hennessy also notes that in the case of a cyber-attack, the blockchain would help to better secure valuable data due to it separating and securely storing the data logs. “If you ever enter a situation where there might be a dispute, it’s possible for each of the stakeholders to have an independent-but-coordinated set of logs that will tell them what has happened in reality rather than trusting a third party or one of those stakeholders to store the logs in a tamper-resistant way,” he explained. Philips will be facing a plethora of startup companies that are currently competing to claim the healthcare blockchain space as their own, but it is unclear how long it will take for the industry to gain trust in, and to widely adopt, blockchain based data storage and transference technologies.
