  • Financial Technology Does Not Have Borders

    Britain and the EU have taken their eye off the ball as they negotiate Brexit

    Dan Andersson blogs in the Huffington post about how Britain and the EU have taken their eye off the ball. As they negotiate Brexit and argue around trade agreements and currency clearing they forget that new technologies are increasingly taking these decisions out of their hands. The power of peer-to-peer digital currency trading is that it is between individuals on a global scale, no banks or states playing middleman. That is where the power will lie in future. Britain’s politicians need to start thinking bigger than Britain - financial technologies don’t need to have borders. My vision is that London will be “the global centre for fintech”, I still believe this country has the infrastructure, skills, and entrepreneurial drive to be the centre of global fintech in the future.

  • Digital Coins Set To Hit The Big Time

    Dan Andersson comments on a study undertaken by the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance

    n the first of its kind a new report has found that at least 3 million people worldwide are now using digital currencies (aka cryptocurrencies) and that figure could be as high as 6 million according to a new report from Cambridge University. The Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance study comes at a time when the value of digital currencies has seen exponential growth, adding momentum to a financial transaction platform that has penetrated over 100 markets. According to data from CoinMarketCap - a world leader in news and information on digital currencies - cryptographic assets are now worth $49.5bn. Just a few weeks ago blockchain-based assets totalled $27.8bn, a remarkable growth trajectory that has led to some analysts speculating that the market has entered a bubble. Advertisement - ADVERTISEMENT - Much of this growth has come away from Bitcoin with more and more trades being conducted with lesser known currencies, and with ever more global exposure for the benefits of digital currencies there is no reason why the value of the sector cannot maintain its impressive growth. What’s more, this remarkable development is further evidence that digital currencies are hitting the big time, with a market value reaching $50 billion the sector is already bigger than AirBnB - an online marketplace for business and leisure travellers looking for somewhere to stay. In fact we’re looking at our own travel service where you can pay in LEOcoin and other digital currencies. The report goes on to estimate that between 5.8 million and 11.5 million wallets are active today, not surprisingly researchers found that 81% of these wallets are based in North America and Europe, where the majority of digital currency employees are located. Asia-Pacifc (20%) and Latin America (13%) are just two high growth regions where digital currencies have high growth potential, and less native competition from traditional financial intermediaries than typically encountered in more developed markets - suggesting that the recent growth trend still has some way to run. Indeed, Maksim Balashevich, CEO and founder of Santiment based in Germany, predicted the current boom earlier this year, positing that the sector is entering a period of ‘dramatic boom’ based on principles of the Elliott Wave theory - a technique used by analysts to study investor behaviour - in a recent interview with Forbes magazine. His forecast assumed that digital currency companies are not a passing fade, that they’re here to stay. Digital currency is a truly global industry that can create opportunity for people in every country in the world, and employing over 2000 people worldwide. As a financial medium what we’re seeing now is digital currencies entering the mainstream consciousness. And with world leading academic institutions such as Cambridge University (being based in Oxford we won’t comment) studying their rise, ever more interest from the press, and consumers, the data and sentiment that is coming through from these stakeholders is that the success of digital currencies is based on the platforms being private, secure, and user friendly. The momentum is building! Follow Dan Andersson on Twitter: www.twitter.com/LEOcoinORG

  • Economy Of The Future

    The People’s Bank of China is to develop their own cryptocurrency.

    The People’s Bank of China is to develop their own cryptocurrency. If the bank is successful, a Renminbi cryptocurrency could open the floodgates to a new-era of transactions, with the world’s most populous country at the vanguard of financial technology. The opportunity to take a business from local to global at break-neck speed has never been greater, with the complexities and risks involved with international exchange withdrawn thanks to modern technology. With our connections in the country and our knowledge and experience in digital currencies, we are well placed to take advantage of this latest initiative.

  • New Desktop Wallet

    Users of LEOcoin wallet will now be able to hold private communications with each other after the integration of a new chat functionality. The desktop wallet, according to the LEOcoin Foundation, has been introduced under their ‘The Upgrade’ launch. The said category is about reclaiming privacy in a world that seems to be going in an opposite direction. The Upgrade hopes to be a viable tool — or an engine behind a series of tools — that can help people exercise their right to privacy. The LEOcoin Chat, as the new feature is titled, follows the footsteps of Telegram in offering the facilities to make untraceable communication. It is specifically designed for users who wish to stay updated with price behaviours, trading strategies and LEOcoin development news by interacting with other members of the LEOcoin community. However, the thing that separates LEOcoin Chat from its counterparts is the blockchain technology. The LEOcoin Foundation ensures encrypted and secure desktop-to-desktop communications using a decentralised blockchain. It, as the foundation quotes, is a never-seen-before feature that makes LEOcoin Wallet a distinctive purse in its own way. “This feature returns privacy to conversations. Nobody is reading these messages and using your information make money from advertising to you. Your private data is very safe with this system as well. The encryption, combined with the decentralised approach, fundamentally changes the way that private messages are sent. The Upgrade is focused on giving people the tools to exercise their rights to privacy, in the same way that digital currency is starting to change the financial industry, we believe that with our approach to private communications, LEOcoin can play a role in fundamentally changing the communications industry and restoring the right to private communications.” — states Dan Andersson, Chairman of the LEOcoin Foundation. Private Transaction Feature In the same upgrade, LEOcoin wallet has come up with a transaction anonymity feature; it provides LEOcoin token users with a private wallet address. Choosing to send tokens using the Private feature enables users to hide their wallet addresses from third parties, including the LEOcoin Foundation. This feature is based on one ‘Ring of Trust technology’, which essentially creates and confirms the transaction on the blockchain without publishing the original sending address. “Essentially, the coins are destroyed after they are sent from the original wallet and created anew before they arrive with the recipient,” added Anderson.

  • LEOcoin Wallet Illustrates Privacy Feature in Newly Released Screenshots

    The makers of LEOcoin have now released a series of screenshots of their new upgraded wallet; the privacy feature is also illustrated in one of these.

    Privacy has been one of the most dominant discussions in the cryptocurrency space with the limitation of Bitcoin in ensuring users’ anonymity. There are only a few that are able to provide a cloak for users’ monetary transactions. With LEOcoin, the anonymity cloak is for anybody in-and-out of cryptocurrency space, especially in times when stealing somebody’s privacy has become a routine job for lawmakers and law enforcers. Dan Anderson, Chairman of the LEOcoin Foundation, discussed it further and explained: “The privacy option is one of the most exciting aspects of The Upgrade. Every wallet will start with two addresses, one public and one private. The public address will work in exactly the same way that current wallet transactions work. However, choosing the private option, launches Ring of Trust Technology, which essentially creates and confirms the transaction on the blockchain without publishing the original sending address. Essentially, the coins are destroyed after they are sent from the original wallet and created anew before they arrive with the recipient.”

  • Dan Andersson Discusses Competition with Bitcoin, and Future Expansion

    In this latest interview with LEOcoin Foundation's Chairman Dan Andersson, we discuss the success of this new altcoin in 2016, and the project sees Bitcoin's uptrend, and their new services in 2017.

    LEOcoin did well in 2016. Even if we regard it as a transition year. In terms of price, in February 2016, the price was around $0.04, currently the price is around ten times that. This is phenomenal development in just one year. Additionally, during 2016, LEOcoin was added to more and more exchanges giving solid increases to daily traded volumes. This has included being added to a major Chinese exchange as well as multiple English language exchanges. The most significant change for LEOcoin was the successful move form a mixed POW/POS mechanism to a pure Proof of Stake coin. This required a successful hard fork and has created a Proof of Stake structure that has yet to be replicated by any coin that I’m aware of. We have introduced a tiered system of rewards. For people who hold 1000 LEOcoin they receive 10% extra over a year. People with 5000 coins receive 15% and people with 50000 LEOcoin receive 20%. The impact that this has had on our economy has been massive and it has broken new ground in the sector. In December, the LEOcoin Foundation worked with the LEOxChange with a massive update that has radically improved that platform and there have been new desktop and mobile wallets developed that are working very well. 2016 felt like the year that LEOcoin sorted out all of the teething issues that it faced at launch and is now in a position to meet it’s full potential.

  • New Politics, New Banking, New World

    It seems, perhaps unsurprisingly, as if people were turning to digital currencies as a safety net.

    It has certainly been an interesting time for the global economy; but for all the doom and gloom and talk of market volatility, we should not forget that recent historic events present an opportunity that we can capitalise on. London-based Bitcoin wallet provider ‘Blockchain’ has opened its 10 millionth digital wallet, making it clear that Brexit and Trump have done little to damage the digital currency sector. In fact the new world order has had a rather positive impact on digital currencies so far. We have already seen examples of an increase in trading of digital currencies in light of failing fiat currencies; in both Greece and China individuals turned to Bitcoin, hedging against economic uncertainty in their respective countries. While global currency markets plummeted following the Brexit vote, digital currencies bucked the trend with Bitcoin soaring in value. It seemed, perhaps unsurprisingly, as if people were turning to digital currencies as a safety net. The anti-establishment tide across the world isn’t just restricted to the world of politics; it’s also sweeping away traditional fintech and allowing digital currencies to flourish.

  • "Uncharted Territory" Chartered Banker Magazine

    Regulating cryptocurrencies may well increase consumer confidence, but experts are at pains to stress the dangers of over-legislating a rapidly developing sector.

    The founder of LEOcoin, Dan Andersson, expresses a view that adding that mass consumer take-up is the inevitable future for cryptocurrencies and regulations that protect and inspire confidence in consumers will accelerate the process of interfering with their development, and may lead to complications and confusion. “We welcome a degree of sensible regulation,” he says. “Clarity on future regulation would give businesses and consumers a greater steer on how to conduct their own affairs in a cryptocurrency economy. This would support the ambitions of legitimate businesses and users to take advantage of the potential speed, lower costs, flexibility and privacy offered by cryptocurrencies. But consumers must be wary of hyper-regulation – too much regulation in a disruptive environment like that of the digital currency arena is not always a good thing and can actually have a negative impact.”

  • LEOcoin to educate the government circles about cryptocurrency

    The LEOcoin Foundation- a Social Enterprise, strives to promote and educate the government representatives about the potential impact that digital currency can have to change the way the world does business, by constantly meeting them. The response to this initiative by the LEOcoin Foundation has been overwhelmingly positive so far. Their efforts and the vision for digital currency have clearly impressed the government officials. The use of blockchain technology to solve global financial problems has also struck a chord with the officials. Moreover, the most favourable outcome has been the UK government’s agreement about the fact that UK’s regulation of digital currencies should and does not hinder this industry. LEOcoin believes it of incredible importance to lead the digital currency conversation and become a key contributor that shapes this agenda.

  • LEOcoin Overview: The Digital Currency of Masses

    a key component in the global monetary system in the next five years; accepted even in local shops.

    LEOcoin is backed by a dedicated exchange that was launched in April 2015 in the UK. It is the first cryptocurrency to be launched in the UK, designed with a special focus on small business owners. What makes LEOcoin a better alternative than Bitcoin or other altcoins around is how easy it is to access and understand it. LEOcoin’s move to a Proof of Stake system, which is designed to make accessing and understanding the coin even easier, has helped it to reach a wider user base. Moreover, the existing user base of LEOcoin members has only helped in stabilizing the exchange price as well as in faster uptake than previous coins. Other digital currencies started with a zero membership base. Whereas, LEOcoin’s existing user base have been involved from the start of the LEOcoindevelopment process, and as such they were a ready and waiting community of merchants, consumers and traders when the LEOxChange launched.

    LEOcoin Info Mobile App October has been an eventful month for LEOcoin, starting with the launch of its LEOcoin Info mobile application. The LEOcoin Info application is available for both Android and iOS-powered mobile devices. It is a comprehensive cryptocurrency educational and news resource with all important details about LEOcoin. The developers’ understanding of the cryptocurrency ecosystem has played a significant role in the way the mobile application is designed. Apart from offering basic information, price and real-time trends for LEOcoin, the application features the list of markets in which the digital currency can be traded. The app also lists other major cryptocurrencies, their price trends, and market capitalization to allow LEOcoin holders to make profitable trades between LEOcoin and other digital currencies. LEOcoin in China While the LEOcoin application is just a tip of the iceberg, the actual traction is being influenced by the relentless promotional and educational activities undertaken by the top management of LEOcoin Foundation. The prominent members of LEOcoin including Danny Alexander are constantly working with entrepreneurs, diplomats, bureaucrats, government officials, businessmen and the huge 200,000 strong LEOcoin community. In one such recent interaction, the LEOcoin team was in China attending a financial summit. The Chinese event saw Danny Alexander share the stage with Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank’s top executive to discuss potential strategic partnerships with one of the top economic institutions in the region. LEOcoin is expecting to work closely with many prominent institutions including the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank in the near future. The event also had developers, cryptocurrency experts, and other LEOcoin community members in attendance. LEOcoin’s Technology Shift The digital currency has been slowing gaining a strong foothold in the cryptocurrency sector. Few changes made to the technology earlier this year has been a contributing factor as well. The digital currency shifted from Proof of Work consensus algorithm to Proof of Stake algorithm to reduce the barrier of entry for users. With the PoS algorithm in place, users are saved from going through the whole process of understanding the technology behind LEOcoin, mining hardware, its operations and more. In order to contribute to the network, the users now just have to keep their LEOcoin wallet open with some balance in it to stake the network. LEOcoin recently witnessed its value go up by ten times this year. Earlier trading at $0.067 per token, its value now stands at $0.60. With its increasing value, the total market capitalization of LEOcoin now puts it in the 6th position. Rewards and Trading LEOcoin also offers an attractive bonus to its community members. The approximate annual proof of stake percentage rewards on the platform are as follows; LEOcoin Balance Approximate Annual Percentage 0 – 999.9999 0% 1000 – 4,999.9999 10% 5000 – 49999.9999 15% 50000+ 20% LEOcoin holders can now trade the digital currency on Cryptopia, Leobit, LEOxChange, C-CEX, Livecoin and other exchanges. Soon, there will be more options as LEOcoin continues to add more exchanges. The increasing popularity of LEOcoin makes it an attractive investment opportunity at the moment. Those who join the LEOcoin community stand to earn a lot in the near future as the digital currency’s value continues to appreciate.

  • LEOcoin Offers Yearly Stake Rewards via Astound PoS Mechanism

    LEOcoin, one of the world’s leading cryptocurrencies by market capitalisation (~$50m), now offers yearly rewards to everyone with a stake of at least 1,000 LEO tokens.

    The “cryptocurrency for entrepreneurs”, which recently switched from previously implemented hybrid PoW-PoS to 100% Proof-of-Stake consensus algorithm, compared its stake offers with bank-sponsored interest rates, adding that they ensure an unbiased distribution of funds. Explaining how, LEOcoin stressed on certain limitation of competitive cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, which is getting unfairly centralised due to the increasing cost of mining. It also spoke about the excessive processing energy consumption and the increased risk of 51% attack that are driving profits away from small miners. As stated on LEOcoin Info, LEOcoin’s dedicated, iOS-approved mobile application, the introduction of PoS algorithm makes its possible for everyone to take part in staking process. The new LEOcoin has eliminated the needs of making huge investments in costly mining machines and electricity. Now, anybody with a mere computer can take part in the mining of LEOcoin, ensuring power to all. “This staking process occurs automatically, so there is no need be an expert miner or have a powerful computer with expensive equipment in order to mine,” LEOcoin Info explained. “By simply staking, anyone can get 10%, 15% or even 20% yearly stake reward in their wallet.” The reward structure works like this: When a user holds 1,000 LEOcoins receives around 10 pc per year as stake, while if h/she holds more than 5,000 LEOcoins, the stake reward gets increased to 15%. Similarly, a user with 50,000 LEOcoins receive a 20% annual stake payout. On the top of that, LEOcoin token can be used in real world applications as well. The backers behind this innovative project has assured that their native token stay relevant when it comes to spending and trade liquidity. Therefore, LEOcoin today can be exchanged with the leading crypto and fiat currencies, including EUR, USD and Bitcoin. The token can also be spent for travelling and shopping, thanks to LEOcoin’s native traveling and merchant services.

    Mihir and Craig had a wide ranging discussion focused on LEOcoin and blockchain technology and future British Government plans for regulating this industry.

    On Thursday this week, Mihir Magudia, representing the LEOcoin Foundation met with Craig Williams MP in the UK Houses of Parliament. In addition to being a Member of the British Parliament, Craig Williams MP is the Parliamentary Private Secretary for the British Chief Secretary for the Treasury.

  • LEOcoinApp.com Launches Dedicated App for LEOcoin Community

    LEOcoin Info, as the new application is titled, aims to update LEOcoin followers with minute-to-minute news updates, price alerts, and growing trends.

    LEOcoinApp.com recently announced that it has launched a dedicated mobile application for LEOcoin users. LEOcoin Info, as the new application is titled, aims to update LEOcoin followers with minute-to-minute news updates, price alerts, and growing trends. In addition to the aforementioned features, LEOcoin Info lists all the seven public exchanges that exclusively allows LEOcoin trading for other crypto-, as well as fiat-currencies. The service appears to find itself parallel to LEOcoin’s core motto: To lobby legitimate digital currencies — including itself — in the global monetary system. Over the recent months, LEOcoin truly is one name that can be seen propagating the benefits of decentralised payment technologies in many global forums. The digital currency evidently took part in a recent summit in China, which saw its founders sharing dais with Danny Alexander, the Vice President of Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. LEOcoins global presence has ensured that its community grows further, and create a parallel and advanced finance ecosystem for all. This can be further noticed in the rise of its market capitalisation, which since February 2016, has grown by 1000 p.c. LEOcoin right has touched the sixth largest cryptocurrency tag by market capitalisation (~$50 million). The LEOcoin price has increased from $0.067 in Feb 2016 to $0.60 at press time. The digital currency also impresses huge because of its PoS-only feature. It earlier used two different algorithms — Proof-of-Work and Proof-of-Stake. But in July, LEOcoin switched to PoS, considering that the said algorithm was more secure and environment friendly than PoW. “Under PoS users are asked to prove ownership of a certain stack of LEOcoins,” says an excerpt from LEOcoin’s official thread. “This makes the our network more secure and over time creates new LEOcoin without consuming large amounts of energy.” LEOcoinApp.com added that for a young cryptocurrency app, LEOcoin Info is experiencing a great demand. The mobile application, which was launched for both iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, has been downloaded more than 1500 times in just 4 days. It also received an instant approval from Apple’s App Store, an app marketplace which is considered pretty stiff when it comes to accepting new applications. LEOcoin Info helps users learn more about the said digital currency through dedicated information widgets integrated within. Ideal for novices, these widgets can discuss many aspects of digital currencies in details. What’s further attractive about the mobile application is, its ability to put the idea of decentralisation before competition. LEOcoin info might carry the name of a registered digital currency, but also updates users with day-to-day price updates of many rivalry cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Dash and Litecoin.

    LEOcoin Attempts to Address the Needs of Business in the Technological Age LEOcoin is a relatively new digital currency that operates on a blockchain-based, peer-to-peer network. Entering a market saturated with altcoins, this project will have to set itself apart from the crowd if it wants to avoid getting drowned out by all the altcoin noise. he team behind this project seems to recognize the uphill battle they face, and wants to differentiate their coin by optimizing it for business transactions.

LEOcoin and its accompanying infrastructure is being developed by The LEOcoin Foundation and allows merchants to make use of the digital currency for their day-to-day business. Unlike most of the altcoins out there, LEOcoin has achieved a great deal of success in a very short span of time. The recently issued LEOcoin White Paper offers a brief background of the digital currency followed by the platform’s future roadmap for technical improvements and increased adoption. At a time when the global economy is registering a steady decline, digital currency assets like LEOcoin offers a monetary alternative whose value doesn’t diminish the same way as fiat currencies.

  • On Eve of Success? How Accepted Are Cryptocurrencies Today

    Summary Six years ago, a cryptocurrency was used as a medium of exchange for the first time - that precedent was later called the most expensive pizza delivery ever. Many things have changed since bac

    CoinTelegraph spoke to Mihir Magudia, Сommunications Director at LEOcoin Foundation, about the potential of digital currencies and the main reasons for the arrest of their development as a method of payment. Being understandable and easy to use is the key Magudia believes that it’s important to help people understand the power and potential of digital currencies, and to show them how they can benefit most from it. This can change the way that business is done. LEOcoin is a pseudonymous digital currency, which is working within a decentralized peer-to-peer network, entirely on a PoS validation algorithm, and was made specifically for small business owners. The currency was created in 2014 by Learning Enterprises Organization (LEO) - a company specializing in eLearning, eTutoring and skills development for entrepreneurs. Such a background let LEOcoin find 200,000 advocates, young entrepreneurs nurtured on LEO educational programmes, at once. Magudia explains: “LEOcoin is designed to be easy to use and participate in. Entrepreneurs and businesses need a coin to be stable and they need it to be mass market, that is what we are working on.” Is it real money? Creating a large and loyal community is not a decisive advantage, albeit an important one. When moving further, every cryptocurrency takes its own path. One of the most popular and straightforward ways of “socializing” a cryptocurrency is to introduce it as a method of payment on all kinds of online shops and trading platforms. Quite predictably, Bitcoin is the absolute leader in this field. The coin is seemingly supported by everyone - from international tech and IT giants to small local companies across Europe. LEOcoin Foundation is always prepared to financially support all worthy contributors, irrespective of currency affiliation. All activities are subject to one main goal - make LEOcoin not just an element of the global cryptocurrency ecosystem, but also a mass market coin.

    LEOcoin Protocol Changes From Proof of Work to Proof of Stake Matthew Warner August 5, 2016 LEOcoin, the cryptocurrency created by London-based LEOcoin Foundation has announced a change to its protocol in order to make it more robust and user-friendly. The organization has reported a successful migration from the previously used Proof of Work consensus protocol, similar to that of bitcoin, to a more efficient Proof of Stake consensus protocol. In addition, LEOcoin has also added more products into its portfolio. By using a Proof of Stake algorithm people without access to specialized equipment like ASICs or mining farms can now participate. Anyone who can operate a computer can now take part in the staking by opening a LEOcoin wallet. This method offers a reduced carbon footprint for creating coins. New reward structures for staking depending upon the number of coins held by each participant has also been implemented. Dan Andersson, the co-founder of LEOcoin offered a brief outline of the new rewards structure where those holding 1000 LEOcoins or more will receive about 10 percent returns per year, while those with 5000 and more will receive 15 percent and those with over 50000 would be receiving 20 percent returns on their stake each year. There are also new platforms being created to help spread adoption of LEOcoin, as well as other digital currencies. The latest products include My LEO Travel and LEOcoin Merchants. My LEO Travel is a travel and hotel booking platform where people can plan trips and pay with LEOcoin alongside other payment options. LEOcoin Merchants is a recently launched site that displays merchants and businesses who are happy to accept LEOcoin in payment for the goods and services. Recently, LEOcoin was supported by a representative from the Chinese Embassy to the United Kingdom among others in an event which saw diplomats from over 20 countries in attendance.

  • Entrepreneurship for a New Europe

    If Brexit has left you bewildered and wondering where your job is going from here, why not tap into your inner entrepreneur, pursue your own dreams of business success

    An international currency Entrepreneurship Europe 2In a world where the value of national currencies can swing severely, dependent on the local political affairs of the day, like Brexit, the effects on business can be brutal. What is needed is a currency that can rise above such issues. Forget the divide between the euro, pound, dollar and yuan, the way forward for the world’s economy may just be a truly international currency. Digital currency, or cryptocurrency, as it is also known, has the potential to be just that. Described as ‘the entrepreneur’s cryptocurrency of choice’, LEOcoin, LEO’s very own digital currency, was launched on to the market in June 2014. This offers an alternative way for entrepreneurs to do business, not hampered by national divides. It has the capacity to lead the way in this global digital economy by providing a decentralised digital currency that is anonymous, secure and user-friendly. A form of ‘digital cash’, it can be used to make payments and transactions, via computer, and as it is more easily understood than some digital currencies, it is projected to have a more mass market appeal. Worldwide funding Entrepreneurship Europe 3As if all this wasn’t enough, if you have a burning business idea, but lack the capital to get it off the ground, you might want to consider the possibility of crowdfunding – especially if this has the potential to reach a worldwide audience. LEO also provides an innovative new crowdfunding platform – LEOcrowd. Launched in May this year, LEOcrowd has a mission to ‘set entrepreneurial spirits free’, and has already helped several projects gain the funding they need. Perhaps more unusually, LEOcrowd facilitates payment via digital currencies, such as LEOcoin, putting it at the cutting edge of financial technology. In this way, it makes it easier for projects to be more global and overcome the financial barriers encountered when attempting to raise capital internationally.

    LEOcoin, a cryptocurrency founded in Britain and designed for entrepreneurs, has today shifted from a combined system to a 100% Proof of Stake system. It’s founder’s vision for it to be the digital currency “for the mass market” is enforced by this change, which is designed to democratise the currency by lowering the barriers to entry, making LEOcoin even more accessible to everyone. Many digital currencies, such as Bitcoin, rely on a Proof of Work system, or a combination of the two, which is how LEOcoin was operating before making the change. The Proof of Work model means a digital currency investor takes an active part in processing the ‘blockchain’ ledger by lending their computer power to the network to earn coins in return – a process known as mining. Given the processing power, expertise and expense required, these types of currencies are still largely the reserve of the technically minded. Proof of Stake differs in that earnings are based solely on the number of coins that you hold, rather than the power of your computer. In practice, this means consumers can mine coins from their home computer without investing in any new hardware. The process is as simple as opening an e-wallet rather than having a dedicated ‘mining’ computer. The switch enables individuals who do not have the technical knowledge of mining to benefit from Proof of Stake rewards, not just those that are buying big machines to knock the smaller players out of the market. LEO CEO and co-founder Dan Andersson reiterated LEOcoin’s ambitions “for a truly mass market digital currency, for the entrepreneurs, the small businesses, your aunties and uncles,” hailing the move to Proof of Stake as “another step on that exciting journey.” Speaking about the potential of digital currencies for the future, Andersson continued: “At LEO, we have always said that this whole process should be as simple as clicking a button in your wallet to stake your coins onto the blockchain. Simply put, the Proof of Work model isn’t working anymore. The carbon footprint of running the current ‘mining rig’ computers is the same size as Cyprus. Proof of Stake thus provides an excellent green alternative, and puts power in the peoples’ hands. It also requires far too much spending on behalf of the user, who has to build expensive mining rigs. “Digital currency has the potential to fundamentally revolutionise the way that business is done, but it can only do this by appealing to a mass market. By opening up this process to people, we now have a much greater opportunity to spread and build our economy.”

  • Putting our money on Proof of Stake

    Moving to a 100% Proof of Stake system we follow our ambitions to be the digital currency for the mass market. We are hoping that this change will lower the barrier entry to make LEOcoin accessible fo

    Principally, digital currencies have been perceived by the wider world as the domain of the technically minded; reserved only for those with an in depth understanding of ledgers, cryptography and with access to the vast amount of computer power supposedly needed for the mining process. Technical jargon aside, digital currency can actually offer something incredibly valuable to the masses and to the global economy. At LEOcoin we have always maintained that the real power of this monetary innovation lies in its ability to level the playing field and democratise finance. That is why we have taken the exciting step to change how everyone can mine LEOcoin, by shifting to a 100% Proof of Stake system. Continuing our ambitions to be the digital currency for the mass market, we are hoping that this change will lower the barrier entry to make LEOcoin accessible for everyone. Methods of mining digital currencies have traditionally necessitated that individuals use a Proof of Work system. In essence you ‘lend’ the processing power of your computer to the network to solve algorithms that generate digital currency. It’s a process that requires expensive and powerful computers with a huge amount of power. To date, this of course means that individuals have needed to have a certain level of technical know-how to be able to invest in digital currencies. These investors must take an active part in processing the blockchain ledger and lend their computer power, to be able to earn any currency in return. Many currencies like Bitcoin still rely on this system, and individuals across the world have set up large mining farms; filling them with hundreds of powerful computers. There a clearly a number of flaws with Proof of Work however, aside from the obvious bias towards individuals who have the finance to buy big machines and knock smaller players out of the market. The method is also hugely energy intensive. The carbon footprint of running the current ‘mining rig’ computers roughly equates to the carbon footprint of a country the size of Cyprus. But mining digital currencies needn’t be this environmentally damaging or indeed so reliant on a high level of IT expertise. With Proof of Stake there is less work involved for an individual who is interested in investing in these types of currencies and less strain on the world’s resources. The process is accessible to anyone who owns and can manage a computer; your earnings are simply based upon the number of coins, or “stake,” that you hold rather than you having to provide any computer power. At LEOcoin we have always said that this process should be as straightforward as clicking a button in your e-wallet to stake your coins onto the blockchain. Our move to Proof of Stake will allow consumers to mine LEOcoins from their home computers with ease. Simply put, the more people invest, the more they are likely to earn. Digital currency has the potential to fundamentally revolutionise the way that business is done, but it can only do this by appealing to a mass market. By opening up this process to people we now have a much greater opportunity to spread and build our economy. Follow Dan Andersson on Twitter: www.twitter.com/LEOcoinORG

    Launched in 2012 by Dan Andersson and Atif Kamran it has grown significantly, with offices in 10 countries a presence in over 140 countries around the world. The core business is online education for entrepreneurs and people wanting to start and grow their own business. The company’s strategy has been to build a global business from the day it was founded and this has led to major success. Over 200,000 people have now experienced some of LEO’s education products, with more joining each day. In addition to developing educational products for entrepreneurs, LEO has developed new tools to help small businesses develop all across the world. LEOcoin is a digital currency that enables small businesses and individuals to take electronic payments from anywhere in the world, with tiny transaction costs. LEOcrowd is a new crowdfunding platform that allows entrepreneurs from many countries pitch their ideas to potential investors who want fund new businesses and projects. Unlike other crowdfunding platforms, and in line with LEO’s global focus, people using LEOcrowd can accept funding from almost anywhere on the planet. LEO is a company that doesn’t just teach people about entrepreneurship, it practices entrepreneurship as well. This can be seen in the way it constantly seeks to disrupt existing markets as well as branch out into new ventures. Forthcoming plans include the creation of a LEO University that will accredited university education online and the establishment of the LEO Bank, another way of seeking to help entrepreneurs start and grow a small business without having to rely on expensive, traditional institutions. As a company that has grown so rapidly in recent years and in constantly developing new ideas, it’s hard to predict the future of LEO. President of the Company, Dan Andersson says,“We are absolutely passionate about small businesses and what can be done to help them grow. For too long, small businesses have been hamstrung by traditional institutions seeking to create profit at every opportunity. Whether that’s through high transaction fees, limited access to finance, or impenetrable bureaucracy, the digital age means that we don’t have to put up with it anymore. There are new ways of doing business that bypass these ageing institutions. There are new technologies that don’t need them to work, and there is no more need for gatekeepers to slow down exiting new ideas from reaching a global audience.” With seemingly endless opportunities for expansion and with a solid business at their core, LEO seems poised for continued success for many years to come.

    Money as a concept has changed a lot over the years - from mounds of salt back in Roman times ('salary' is derived from the Latin for salt) through to gold, then innumerable currencies and now to today's vast digital transactions. Sure, there's a lot of cash still sloshing around, but the big deals are all electronic. Increasingly that's trickling down to us consumers too - from Wave and Pay in your local city bar, paperless bank statements and Oyster cards, through to rumors that Denmark is planning to go entirely digital. old money is on the run. What's surprising is that your established high street bank is currently all in favor of digital transactions - they're cheaper to manage and a chance to slice off a fee.Money as a concept has changed a lot over the years - from mounds of salt back in Roman times ('salary' is derived from the Latin for salt) through to gold, then innumerable currencies and now to today's vast digital transactions.

What's surprising is that your established high street bank is currently all in favor of digital transactions - they're cheaper to manage and a chance to slice off a fee. But once consumers are happy with purely conceptual money then the role of banks themselves may start to change, and there's a wealth of alternative 'versions' of cash out there which are ready to exploit the new chapter of currency. The best-known of these alternatives is probably Bitcoin - more details on that below - and these could really change our banking world fundamentally, if enough of us decide to trust them. The changes coming our way are pretty big: from just altering the way we spend our cash to completely new types of money that could alter the financial landscape of the world, there's a lot to get your head around - so here's some help on that front. LEOcoin is based on a blockchain algorithm too, and can be mined just like Bitcoin - it's based on Litecoin code, which is a licensed variation of, but extremely similar to Bitcoin. LEOCoin aims to be 'the entrepreneurs' digital currency of choice' and goes about this by being more secure - or so the founders claim - than Bitcoin; truly anonymous, and easier to use. The process of downloading a wallet, then either buying or 'mining' your own LEOcoins is simplified, mainly by restricting the wide-open-choice nature of Bitcoin. Another key difference is that by just maintaining a LEOcoin 'wallet' with coins in it you automatically accrue 'reward' at 4%, by being allowed to generate additional coins. LEOcoin points out that this "is an excellent way to convince investors to hold on to their coins for an extended period". However, the product hasn't gained widespread traction yet, being still in the soft launch phase, so perhaps don't head out and change all your cash for LEOcoins just yet.

  • LEOcoin evolving to Proof of Stake mining

    Sohail Ramzan, LEO Chief Technology Officer announced the next step in LEOcoin’s evolution.

    At the LEO 3rd Global Annual Conference in Bali this January, Sohail Ramzan, Chief Technology Officer announced the next step in LEOcoin’s evolution. LEOcoin mining is moving from Proof of Work (PoW) to Proof of Stake (PoS). Why are we looking to make this move? The LEOcoin mining environment has changed over the years and now we think there are advantages to Members to move from PoW to PoS. In brief the advantages of PoS to Members can be summarised as - lower cost of operation with PoS; from setting up the technical environment through to cost of electricity to mine - PoW works the computer equipment hard; whereas PoS puts very little strain on the equipment used to mine - PoW rewards get increasingly difficult to achieve over time; PoS is based on a different mechanism rewarding those who hold LEOcoin - PoW gives an advantage to those with sophisticated technical skills; you don’t need any technical expertise to benefit from PoS - PoS is far more secure than PoW More details will follow over the next months.

Speaking ahead of the visit, Mayor of London Boris Johnson MP said: “This trade mission is a fantastic chance to promote London as a thriving tech city and an opportunity to encourage lasting partnerships with some of Israel’s most innovative and creative minds. I want to shine a light on London’s home grown tech talent and strengthen our ties with this part of the world.” Earlier this year LEO successfully launched in Canada and the Philippines. The company is currently active in the Americas, Europe, Africa, Middle East, China and other parts of South East Asia, and operates in over 150 different marketplaces. LEO is excited to now be expanding its footprint across the Middle East and into Israel's growing education technology market. Dan Andersson said “We are delighted to have been chosen to be a part of the Mayor’s delegation to Israel. It is a privilege to be representing the UK’s Education Technology sector on a global stage. Israel is a crucial step in LEO’s further expansion, and this visit provides a fantastic opportunity to establish our business in this growing market.” LEO’s local MP, John Howell said “I am pleased to see LEO, a company headquartered in my own constituency, going on this important trip. This is a great chance for the UK to strengthen its relationship with the education tech community in Israel, and it is exciting to see a local company included in this showcase of the best EdTech companies that the UK has to offer.” Founded in 2012 by Dan Andersson and Atif Kamran, LEO offers entrepreneurship and business skills training through e-Tutoring, e-Learning, Live Seminar and Technology products. Headquartered in the UK, it now has offices in ten countries and members across the globe.

    The good, the bad and the Ponzi

    Since digital currencies leapt on to the scene in the early 1990s, they have been steadily gaining traction in the financial sector. Dan Andersson discusses the differences between legitimate digital currencies and Ponzi schemes, explaining that legitimate digital currencies, like LEOcoin, are traded publically on exchanges, and have the potential to fundamentally transform the way business is done across the world.

  • LEOcoin Foundation joins Chamber of Digital Commer

    The LEOcoin Foundation has recently become a member of the Washington DC-based Chamber of Digital Commerce (CDC), the trade association for the digital asset and currency communities.

    The LEOcoin Foundation has recently become a member of the Washington DC-based Chamber of Digital Commerce (CDC), the trade association for the digital asset and currency communities. That may not excite you that much. But for me it’s very exciting. This is another significant step in establishing LEOcoin as a major player in the digital currency marketplace. We are now at the table, part of a dynamic effort to engage with policy makers in the US, still one of the biggest marketplaces for digital currency. We are there with a whole cross section of the digital asset community, including exchanges, wallets, payments processors, miners, issuers, software companies, financial institutions and investors. The CDC is actively encouraging the acceptance and use of digital assets and related technologies, committed to growing the thriving digital community. It’s also about setting regulatory and self-regulatory standards which is something else we are passionate about. We don’t want regulation that will stifle entrepreneurialism and drive it underground, but we do need standards that will ensure anyone trading in a digital currency, merchant or buyer, is secure. In addition to its advocacy work, the Chamber also provides educational programs on topics like anti-money laundering compliance, and holds member briefings on policy developments that impact the digital asset community. Policy makers and individuals from around the world are increasingly waking up to the potential of digital currency. In just the past year 32,000 merchants have signed up to accept LEOcoin and our membership has expanded to a community of 166,000. The lion is roaring.

    China’s cash crisis might be creating digital opportunities

    As China’s economic growth slows down and digital currencies, like LEOcoin, see an increase in trades in light of the falling Yuan, Dan Andersson asks: Could digital cash help a business during an economic slowdown/recession, and could that in itself help shorten the downturn by keeping the economy moving?

  • Digital cash during an analog crash

    Digital currency offers an opportunity for instant international, secure, private trading outside of punitive international charges and regulation

    It says a lot about the power China wields in our global economy that the West has gone into mild panic at the prospect of China’s growth slowing down. Whilst many countries in the EU are still fighting the reality of recession, the idea of growth, even if it’s slowing, is but a mere pipedream. China’s exports have fallen 8% and the Yuan continues to fall in an attempt to halt that – though the CPC assures us this won’t be for long of course. Having worked in China for many years, I have first-hand experience of their industriousness and their hunger to be the best at whatever they do. Our Oxfordshire based entrepreneurial skills company, LEO, has a huge user base in China with many small business owners seeking to expand their enterprises. Indeed part of the reason we founded LEOcoin last year, a new digital currency (currently the world’s third largest), is because I was so inspired by Chinese entrepreneurs and their drive to trade. It seemed to me, and still does, that there were millions of businesses calling out for tradable liquidity that wasn’t subject to the whims of government or a central bank. Digital currency offers an opportunity for instant international, secure, private trading outside of punitive international charges and regulation. As an economy stagnates there is nothing more important to a business than the ability to keep trading, that’s how you keep an economy moving. Could digital cash help a business during an economic slowdown/recession, could that in itself help shorten the downturn by keeping the economy moving? Perhaps not such an outlandish idea. Digital currencies like ours and Bitcoin, for example, are already seeing an increase in trades in light of the falling Yuan, Greece has seen similar activity. In fact the idea of a more formal adoption of digital currency in Greece was an idea put forward by none other than their (now former) finance minister, Yanis Varoufakis. What you might not know about Mr Varoufakis is that he is an economist in his own right, with some interesting ideas on digital currency. Varoufakis proposed an idea where the Greek government could issue its own digital currency to provide solvent Greek businesses with liquidity, the trade up being businesses buy the tender off government in exchange for a future discount on taxes. His proposition is interesting not least of all because not only does it fly in the face of current fiat economics, it also flies in the face of the main reason people use digital currencies in the first place – namely that they are not government tender. That said, it is an interesting idea to play with. Could digital currency be a vital key to unlock growth for businesses, an avenue for them to keep trading with other businesses both at home and abroad as the state crumbles around them? For businesses and entrepreneurs it is the ‘access to cash’ during a crisis that could be the vital life line to recovery. The fact that a digital currency, like LEOcoin, is ‘stateless’ could be the key factor allowing a business to keep trading without the need to interact with government or a bank even – perhaps this is why we have so many users in China? People are looking to currencies whose value lies with the community who use it, rather than a nation state; and that needs to be the long-term vision for digital currency.

  • Digital solution to a Greek tragedy?

    The financial crisis gripping Greece could force one of the most radical rethinks in fiat economics in generations.

    Digital solution to a Greek tragedy? The financial crisis gripping Greece could force one of the most radical rethinks in fiat economics in generations. I have been following the views of outgoing Greek finance minister and economist Yanis Varoufakis for some time – in particular his unorthodox standpoint on the potential posed by digital currency for a struggling economy like Greece. His assessments on the potential offered by digital currencies have focussed on Bitcoin and his appraisal of their potential has largely been negative. Yet this has not prevented him from examining how a digital currency of sorts could work for his native country. Much like the War Bonds of Word War II, Mr Varoufakis presents a theoretical digital currency as an opportunity to provide a government with immediate, but sustainable, liquidity in a crisis. In essence Mr Varoufakis advocating a ‘temporary switch’ to a government backed digital currency that would offer liquidity to solvent Greeks by offering tax reductions on future taxes. This would mean a citizen would be able to buy this currency, and use it in digital form, as cash – its value being attached to the future discounts the individual would get on tax once the economy is ‘out of the woods.’ What he proposes is the creation of a currency using “cryptocurrency’s” unique algorithms which he terms Future Taxes Coin (FT-coin for short). In the example he offers you would purchase, for example, 1 FT-coin for €1000 from a Treasury backed source, then redeem it, say, two years after it was issued as payment that wipes out, for example, €1500 worth of taxes. Every year (after the system has been operating for at least two years) the Treasury would issue a new batch of FT-coins to replace the ones that have been extinguished, as taxpayers would have used them. To make sure that the system is fully transparent, FT-coin could be run by an algorithm, like those used by LEOcoin, designed and supervised by an independent non-governmental national authority, similar to how the digital currency community ‘polices’ its ledger currently. His proposition is interesting not least of all because it not only flies in the face of current fiat economics, but also of the main reason people use digital currencies currently – namely that they are not government tender. For business and entrepreneurs it is the ‘access to cash’ during a crisis that could be the vital life line to recovery. The fact that a digital currency like LEOcoin is ‘stateless’ could be the key factor allowing a business to keep trading, even as a state falls down around them. People are looking to currencies whose value lies with the community who use it, rather than a nation state. This is where I think Mr Varoufakis’ views, though interesting, are perhaps short sighted. Rather than a government looking at digital currency as a potential salvation because of the instant liquidity it may offer to them, people should be looking at digital currency to trade directly with each other. It is small business owners and entrepreneurs that turn recessions around - you can have all the clever fiscal policy in the world, but as long as real business people aren’t driving commerce then government intervention amounts to nothing.

  • Digital Solution to a Greek tragedy?

    The crisis in Greece could force most radical rethink in fiat economics. For business and entrepreneurs it is the 'access to cash' during a crisis that could be the vital life line to recovery

    SUMMARY The crisis now gripping Greece could force most radical rethink in fiat economics. For business and entrepreneurs it is the 'access to cash' during a crisis that could be the vital life line to recovery. The fact that a digital currency like LEOcoin is 'stateless' could be the key factor allowing a business to keep trading, even as a state falls down around them. It is for this reason that I am not surprised to see an uplift in the price of Bitcoin this week, and LEOcoin has also seen increases in trading. People are looking to currencies whose value lies with the community who use it, rather than a nation state. For the full story on the role LEOcoin can play Full story You would have to have been living in a cave these past few years not to be aware of the travails that currently afflict the Greek people and their economy. As the Greeks debate the choice that apparently faces them, the Euro or the Drachma, there could be other options on the table. What about digital currency? Some of you may have heard of it by another name, 'cryptocurrency', others may have heard of types of digital currency such as Bitcoin, Litecoin and our very own LEOcoin. The crisis now gripping Greece could force one of the most radical rethinks in fiat economics in generations. Not everyone will be aware of the interesting figure that is the outgoing Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis. Mr Varoufakis has resigned in the wake of the weekend's no vote in Greece which rejected the EU's current austerity demands of the floundering country, his resignation is particularly interesting given his previous assertion that it would in fact be a yes vote that would precipitate his departure. However, it is not his departure, or the nature of it, that interests me necessarily. It is his unorthodox views on the potential posed by digital currency for a struggling economy like Greece's that should catch the eye of those of us working in this exciting digital arena. Yanis' reflections on digital currency have focussed on Bitcoin as the case study for his assessments of the potential they offer, and his appraisal of their potential has largely been negative. Yet this has not prevented him from examining how a digital currency of sorts could work for his native Greece. As the founder of a digital currency, LEOcoin (the exchange went live this April), that has already seen thousands of businesses engage in this new type of transaction, I feel his comments are worth exploring further. Much like the War Bonds of Word War II, Mr Varoufakis presents a theoretical digital currency as an opportunity to provide a government with immediate, but sustainable, liquidity in a crisis. In essence Mr Varoufakis advocates a 'temporary switch' to a government backed (the Greek government that is) digital currency that would offer liquidity to solvent Greeks by offering tax reductions on future taxes. This would mean a citizen would be able to buy this currency, and use it in digital form, as cash - its value being attached to the future discounts the individual would get on tax once the economy is 'out of the woods.' What the former finance minister, and world renowned economist, proposes is the creation of a currency using "cryptocurrency's" unique algorithms which he termed Future Taxes Coin (FT-coin for short). In the example he offers you would purchase, for example, 1 FT-coin for €1000 from a Treasury backed source, then redeem it say two years after it was issued as payment that extinguishes, for example, €1500 worth of taxes. Every year (after the system has been operating for at least two years) the Treasury would issue a new batch of FT-coins to replace the ones that have been extinguished, as taxpayers would have used them. To make sure that the system is fully transparent, FT-coin could be run by an algorithm, like those used by LEOcoin, designed and supervised by an independent non-governmental national authority, like how the current digital currency community 'polices' its ledger currently. His proposition is interesting not least of all because not only does it fly in the face of current fiat economics, it also flies in the face of the main reason people use digital currencies currently - namely that they are not government tender. For business and entrepreneurs it is the 'access to cash' during a crisis that could be the vital life line to recovery. The fact that a digital currency like LEOcoin is 'stateless' could be the key factor allowing a business to keep trading, even as a state falls down around them.

It is small business owners and entrepreneurs that turn recessions around - you can have all the clever fiscal policy in the world, but as long as real business people aren't driving commerce then government intervention amounts to nothing. That is where the real opportunity of digital currency lies. Instant trading with the business community, free from the restrictions of the international banking status quo, is how you can get an economy moving again during these strained times. That is the big picture for digital currency, let traders trade. Follow LEOcoin on Twitter: https://twitter.com/LeocoinORG

  • Small is beautiful

    Not only the title...

    Not only the title of EF Schumacher’s, at the time, controversial look at modern day economics, it’s also what we believe when it comes to financial transactions. The core of Schumacher’s argument back in the early 70s was that we were becoming over obsessed with ‘gigantism’, and that big was not always best. So while we might dream big, the reality is that much of today’s business is driven by entrepreneurs and small to medium sized enterprises. And for those starting out, small transactions and the ability to make them quickly, can drive spontaneous sales and boost profits. Whatever your business, entering credit card details and taking the hit of transaction fees for small sales is time consuming, costly and frustrating, not to say a drain on your profit margins. That’s why there is a general move towards driving down transaction costs through, for instance, the introduction of online apps targeting micro businesses, which we welcome. But even small percentage transaction fees add up if you are selling a small value, high volume service or product. A digital currency such as LEOcoin is ideally suited to processing micropayments because it’s already transaction free – which is why we are experiencing such an enthusiastic and positive response to LEOcoin around the world. We’re ahead of the wave folks – join the LEOcoin revolution!

  • The Future of Financial Transactions

    https://leocoin.org/Blogs.aspx

    In this weekend’s UK-based Independent newspaper there was a fascinating article about how the world of financial transactions will look in 2030 – just 15 years away. While consumers in their 20s and upwards may recall saving coins in a piggy bank, they are unlikely to have seen a cheque and the debit card will be close to obsolete. In what is likely to be a cashless society, transacting will be done via mobile apps, facial recognition or even RFID (radio frequency identification) chips - not necessarily implanted but carried in your watch or phone. In other news, the Danish Government last week announced that, subject to approval by Parliament, it hopes to have phased out cash transactions by as early as 2016, allowing retailers to accept only card or smart phone payments. Digital transactions are very popular in Denmark with a third of all Danish citizens using the Danske Bank app, MobilePay, to pay for services and transactions. It’s unlikely that the new proposals to ban all cash transactions will be met with any opposition. The speed of change in society can be daunting for some – but truly exciting for many. Those who aren’t afraid to embrace change are those who will go furthest in business. Who wold have predicted 15 years ago that digital currencies would be as popular as they are today? The ability to transact without involving third parties or paying fees, seamlessly and simply on your computer, is catching on around the world. LEOcoin now has over 10,000 Members actively trading on the LEOxChange with average traded volume of 600,00 LEOcoins per month. The future is already here at LEOcoin – and you are part of it.

    PwC’s advisory practice explains that despite "the significant unknowns surrounding digital currencies, some large corporates are beginning to open the doors for acceptance."

    TREASURY INSIDER In a recent case study for Treasury Management International, Principal Peter Frank, Director Bruno Lopes and Manager Adam Taplinger of PwC’s advisory practice explore the pros and cons of digital currencies and explain that despite "the significant unknowns surrounding digital currencies, some large corporates are beginning to open the doors for acceptance." The three members of the PwC advisory also discuss how the popularity of cryptocurrencies could grow or deplete and explain that it all depends "on the outcome of these early steps, digital currencies may emerge as a legitimate part of the mainstream payments landscape or recede into the background as novelty." The PwC members also say that cash management will also become simpler with the increased use of currencies like Bitcoin or LEOcoin because they bypass banks and clearing houses as the payments are made directly between the payer and payee. This could also eliminate extra process steps and infrastructure costs, again making it easier for businesses to make payments.

    One of the aspects of digital currencies we like most is how they break down barriers. LEOcoin is a secure, transparent and easy way to do business with customers around the world.

  • LEOxChange is now open for trading

Learning Enterprises Organisation (LEO), an Oxfordshire based company, launched their new currency last month, which co-founder, Dan Andersson hailed as an "important chapter in the evolution of the global digital currency." The introduction of a new cryptocurrency suggests this sector is rapidly growing and the launch of LEOcoin coincides with government proposals to regulate the digital currency sector and accept cryptocurrencies in the UK. A key feature of LEOcoin is its security, as with the use of high level encryption systems, personal data and trading information is kept safe. Alongside this, trading data is clearly visible on an online ledger, so the bid, offer prices and quantities can be easily understood.

  • Let the numbers do the talking

    We already knew tr...

    We already knew transaction fees were a major barrier to growth for small to medium sized enterprises seeking to trade internationally. So we weren’t surprised when a survey we commissioned from YouGov in the UK confirmed it. Of those surveyed, almost 50% of small to medium sized enterprises in the UK who trade internationally said transaction fees were a key concern; and 43% who transacted using debit or credit cards were also worried about the associated costs. That’s why digital currencies, and LEOcoin in particular, are proving particularly attractive to emerging start-ups and entrepreneurs - because there are no intermediaries charging commissions. The numbers speak for themselves: we’ve now got a staggering 150,000 entrepreneurs worldwide actively using LEOcoin and over 3,000 merchants around the world have agreed to accept LEOcoins as payment. Our survey, which questioned 1,102 senior decision makers in UK SMEs (up to 249 employees), also revealed, however, that there was reluctance to using a digital currency . We believe that’s because, up until now, the complexity and inaccessibility of digital currencies has discouraged take up. And that’s the opportunity for LEOcoin. The gap between those businesses worried about transaction fees and yet reluctant to use a digital currency is the gap we believe LEOcoin will fill. It is designed to make life easier for entrepreneurs who want to trade internationally but have to put up with very high transaction costs. Our message to them and their customers is that there is a better way of doing business. The LEOcoin way.

    What a whirlwind fortnight it has been. Not only did we have our UK press launch in the Tower of London, a mere stone’s throw from the Royal Mint, but we have also officially started trading LEOCoin on our LEOxChange! In a packed ballroom of the Hyatt Hotel in Hong Kong more than a dozen journalists from across China joined us, not to mention over a thousand LEO members, all eager to find out more. Coincidentally, our launch comes a matter of days after the UK Government announced its plans for regulating the digital currency sector. Amidst all this activity, it felt like appropriate timing, to hear more about the Government’s planned direction of travel in this area. LEO took part in this consultation, including meeting personally with the Treasury on the issue, as we believe that careful regulation is critical. To summarise, the Government’s key announcements are: • an intention to apply anti-money laundering regulation to digital currency exchanges in the UK (which LEOCoin has already registered for), to support innovation and prevent criminal use. There will be formal consultation on the proposed regulatory approach early in the next Parliament. • plans to work with the British Standards Institution (BSI) and the digital currency industry to develop voluntary standards for consumer protection. • a new research initiative bringing together the Research Councils, Alan Turing Institute and Digital Catapult with industry in order to address the research opportunities and challenges for digital currency technology, as well as increase research funding in this area by £10 million to support this. The Government has also announced that the Financial Conduct Authority’s ‘Project Innovate’ will work with HM Treasury and the Prudential Regulatory Authority to investigate the feasibility of developing a regulatory "sandbox" to allow financial services innovators to test ideas at an early stage without excessive regulation, but with the informed consent of consumers and proper risk management. A ‘sandbox’ approach is certainly what’s required in these early days. While we support regulation, over-zealous intervention runs the risk of dissolving the core benefits of digital currencies: privacy, security, low to no fees and free marketability. In an extreme case, it could restrict legitimate business and create another black market. The process is ongoing and we are continuing to actively engage; and now the currency is live we will be able to bring real world examples to the table!

  • LEOcoin founders continue to work with highest levels of the British Government

    LEOcoin founders, Dan Andersson and Atif Kamran meet Danny Alexander MP, Chief Secretary of Her Majesty’s Treasury

    This week, LEOcoin founders, Dan Andersson and Atif Kamran visited the British Houses of Parliament and the offices of the UK Treasury to meet Danny Alexander MP, Chief Secretary of Her Majesty’s Treasury. They discussed the early successes of LEOcoin and shared ideas on the future of cryptocurrencies and their potential to transform how business is done. This meeting has followed high profile meetings with other senior ministers in the UK Government such as Nick Clegg MP (Deputy Prime Minister), Matt Hancock MP (Minister for Business) and Stephen Williams MP (Minister for Local Government). In the next three weeks, the UK Government will publish proposals on regulation for cryptocurrencies and as LEOcoin is arguably now the Number 1 British virtual currency in the world, Danny Alexander and his colleagues were very interested in the views of Dan and Atif and were keen to know what they thought of the Government’s plans.. Speaking after the meeting, Dan Andersson said, “It was a privilege to meet such a senior member of the UK Government to discuss the future of cryptocurrencies. He was very interested to hear our ideas and pleased that a British business was doing so well across the world. Atif Kamran added, “During the meeting, we talked to the Chief Secretary about the importance of cryptocurrencies to small businesses and entrepreneurs as well as their significance in global e-commerce. Danny Alexander was very interested in the global opportunities that this created for UK businesses and the wider economy. The LEOcoin founders have now met a number of important leaders of the UK Government and are working with them to ensure that the future of cryptocurrencies are strong and regulated in a way that meets the needs of the entrepreneurs who can take full advantage of them.

  • The term ‘Britcoin’ is gaining currency

    Seriously, though, I was reading an article on BBC News site by Padraig Belton Business reporter titled “Why 'Britcoins' may soon pay for your latte.”

    Two years ago, around 4,000 merchants in the world accepted cryptocurrencies, now there are more than 100,000. For LEOcoin it took less than a month to get to "It's a very efficient way for a company to accept payment …. very different from dealing with credit cards, which take at least 2% to 3%." Britain's first Bitcoin cash machine has been installed in a Shoreditch coffee shop in London, where you can pay for your coffee from your digital wallet. And more global financial institutions make their home in wet Britain than sunny California. So London became the world's new financial technology centre, employing more people (over 44,000) in the sector than either Silicon Valley or New York. Britain's tax authorities released a guidance brief on Bitcoin a year ago (and decided not to charge VAT on cryptocurrency mining or trading). Last month, the Bank of England publicly explored the idea of issuing a 'digital pound'. In general, the UK government has adopted a wait-and-see attitude. It could be time for some light-touch regulation in Britain, to lend cryptocurrencies credibility, and give banks confidence in dealing with them. Payment looms large in financial technology after the 2008 banking crisis, banks have focussed again on their core business of enabling transactions rather than esoteric financial instruments and derivatives. One new body, the Emerging Payments Association, represents newer entrants in the payments space. It pushes for non-bank payment firms to have more equal access to retail clearing banks, for such things as faster payments and dealing with consumers through the Post Office, says board advisor Richard Wagner, chief executive of Advanced Payment Solutions. Bitcoins may not yet have met their killer app. But how we pay is undergoing more than small change. And Bitcoin, Ripple, and other new alternative forms of payment are steadily gaining currency, bit by bit.

  • What is a cryptocurrency and why you should know about them?

    Digital currency is here to stay

    Cryptocurrencies were established in 2009 with the launch of Bitcoin, in response to individuals seeking increased anonymity and control around financial transactions. If you transact through a bank or other financial intuition, a whole range of people have access to this information. With cryptocurrencies, the only record of your finances, until you complete the transaction, is on an anonymous online ledger, accessed via a computer or smart device. There is no central body to authorise or track transactions – these tasks are carried out collectively by the digital currency network themselves. In effect, it’s a private currency, completely decentralised. Despite a modestly paced entry into the marketplace, mainly due to the sophistication of the equipment required to trade in Bitcoins, there are now around 13.5m Bitcoins in circulation, being transacted by around 2.6m individuals in up to 100,000 transactions a day. It’s not unusual to now see signs in coffee shops and bars offering to trade in Bitcoin and you can even load up your smart phone or electronic wallet at Bitcoin ATMs in London, Bristol and Brighton. Technology available to bring cryptocurrencies to a wider and more diverse audience, both users and merchants, is moving so fast that new generation of cryptocurrencies, such as LEOcoin, will be able to offer everyday users an even swifter, simpler and more streamlined service than their predecessors. Although you still need a computer or smart device to get involved in the digital currency world, you don’t need expensive add on equipment in order to get going. Like any new development in society, crypotocurrencies won’t immediately appeal or be relevant to everyone. But rest assured, digital currency is here to stay so if you want to ‘ride the wave’ of the most exciting thing to have hit the financial markets in decades, seriously consider investing in a cryptocurrency.



  • The UK Government calls for information on cryptocurrencies

    LEOcoin contributed its thoughts

    LEOcoin recently contributed its thoughts to the Government’s ‘Call for Information’ on the proposed regulation of digital currencies, which closed on December 3rd 2014. The consultation received nearly a hundred responses which shows just how interested people are in the subject. Currently there are few regulations imposed on cryptocurrencies, other than standard money laundering regulations. LEOcoin supports the development of steps that can be taken to create more confidence within the mainstream population. But overzealous intervention could dissolve the core benefits of cryptocurrencies, namely privacy, security, low to no fees and free marketability. In an extreme case, it could restrict legitimate business and create another black market. The entire cryptocurrency ecosystem, both legal and otherwise, is evolving so quickly that legislators are now preparing to make rules for circumstances that have no precedent. Cryptocurrencies require a whole new way of thinking, and a much more flexible approach from governments. It is important to allow precedent to develop legally within the free market framework – rather than detour the course of cryptocurrencies in their infancy. As we prepare for the public launch of LEOcoin in a couple of months’ time, we hope the UK will adopt a supportive and entrepreneurial mind-set or risk being left behind by other more progressive countries.



  • “Changing the world, one coin at a time”

    We are going to change the face of how people do business

    Buying a house, funding the Jamaican bobsled team at the Winter Olympics, or ordering a pizza. These are just some of the ways you can currently spend cryptocurrency. One of the comments we often hear is that there’s no easy way to spend digital currencies. Well, if you take a look at the range of merchants who are already accepting Bitcoins in the UK, then maybe you will change your mind. You can order a takeaway from around 7,500 listed restaurants, pop into a number of pubs for a quick pint, buy a bike to pedal off the excess or travel in style by hiring your own private jet. You can even rent a designer dress and jewellery for the occasion. And just this month, Microsoft announced that it is now accepting Bitcoin for all digital purchases through BitPay. This includes Windows, Windows Phone and Xbox software. Why are people welcoming more choice in financial transacting? Because digital currencies offer a range of benefits over traditional fiat currencies: privacy, security, low to no fees and free marketability. The enterprise community in particular is excited about a more flexible and faster way to build their businesses, without wading through miles of red tape. According to the Treasury, it is estimated 20,000 people in the UK currently hold Bitcoins – and around £60m worth are circulating in the UK economy. The market for a new cryptocurrency is huge and the pace of its development is faster than ever. We are going to change the face of how people do business – one coin at a time.



  • An introduction to the world changing cryptocurrency: LEOcoin

    Bitcoin blazed the trail for digital currency when the world looks back they will think of just one coin: LEOcoin.

    When people mention cryptocurrencies they probably think of Bitcoin, which blazed a trail for digital currency when it launched in 2009. However, in the future, when the world looks back at how cryptocurrencies changed the way the world transacted, they will think of just one coin: LEOcoin. LEOcoin was forged in May 2014 when entrepreneurs Dan Andersson and Atif Kamran saw the opportunity to create a new currency designed for entrepreneurs and ordinary people. Because while cryptocurrency has grown exponentially in recent years, few have managed to capture the imagination of those who remain flummoxed by the technical jargon and perceive that cryptocurrencies aren’t relevant to the way they do day to day business. This is where LEOcoin comes in. Technology in the sector is now moving at an incredible rate which has allowed LEOcoin to position itself as the ‘next generation’ cryptocurrency: simpler, faster and more cost effective to use than its forerunners. The system that LEOcoin is built upon has three key features. Transactions are anonymous, the network is 100% secure and most importantly, it is designed with user friendliness and accessibility at its core. LEOcoin has been built to be as simple and straight forward as possible. It is designed to have mass market appeal and has the potential to rock the foundations of financial systems the world over. By making the currency open and accessible to anyone it will encourage entrepreneurs and ordinary people to take on the coin as an alternative to fiat currency; or cold hard cash. From the touch of your mobile phone or click of your mouse you can have access to your very own LEOcoin wallet, with the option to purchase coins with fiat currency or earn them through as mining (an individual with a computer supporting the processing power needed to maintain a cryptocurrency ledger). There are already 80,000 people globally with LEOcoins in their wallet. These are members of the LEO training academy who have been rewarded with LEOcoins as a bonus on a closed exchange. That means that when the exchange goes live in early 2015 the currency will be the second largest cryptocurrency in circulation; just behind Bitcoin. In six months’ time you will be astonished by the locations and businesses that will accept LEOcoins, allowing you to purchase goods and services around the world. If you missed the first microwaves, mobile phones and the launch of smart phones - don’t miss LEOcoin. Register for your wallet today and join the conversation on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Reddit and YouTube and be part of the future of currency.



  • M Treasury mulls regulation

    LEOcoin was among the organisations and individuals that lodged some 70 submissions to the HM Treasury’s consultation on digital currencies in December 2014. 'All we are asking,' said co-founder Dan Andersson, 'is for the UK government to start to understand the idiosyncrasies of crypto-currencies and to recognise the benefits they bring…’
