Wirecard, the global innovation leader in digital financial technology, has deepened its partnership with Dash from Singtel, the leading Asian telecommunications group. From now on, Dash’s customers can make payments using Apple Pay at millions of participating on- and offline merchants worldwide.

Brigitte Haeuser-Axtner, Executive Vice President, Sales Asia, Digital & Telecommunications at Wirecard, said, “As leaders in digital financial technology, we are proud to work with Singtel to bring Dash to an even larger group of potential customers with Apple controlling almost half of Singapore’smobile OS market. Together we look forward to connecting even more consumers with merchants around the globe. Asia continues to be the leader of the digital payments revolution worldwide, and we are excited to be at the forefront of these innovations.”

“With the increasing popularity of mobile and online payments, Dash enables easy, secure and seamless payment options between our partner merchants and our more than half a million Dash customers on the platform of their choice,” said Gilbert Chuah, Head of mCommerce at Singtel. “Our expanded partnership with Wirecard to bring Dash to Apple Pay reflects our commitment to enhance the digital payment experience for both merchants and customers.”

The inclusion of Dash into Apple Pay complements the increasing popularity of online shopping in Singapore. Wirecard’s 2018 International Holiday Shopping Report found that 67% of Singaporeans surveyed prefer shopping online, either via desktop or mobile, while 20% prefer shopping in-store. The ability to use mobile payments in-store is also a welcome innovation with 51% of respondents saying it improves their shopping experience.

Ric Edelman, one of the nation’s most prominent financial advisors and creator of The Advisor Blockchain and Cryptoassets Council, held the third meeting of this growing group of influencers on March 20 at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City.

Firms presenting at the event included Multicoin Capital, Bitgo, Digital Assets Data, FRST Corporation, ZenLedger, Gemini and Perkins Coie.

Immediately following the morning meeting, ABCC partnered with Barron’s to stage the Blockchain and Cryptoasset pre-event, in conjunction with the Barron’s Top Independent Advisor Summit. The event offered Continuing Education Credits to those in attendance.

Nearly 80% of the financial advisors attending the event said they know little to nothing about blockchain and cryptoassets, and 97 percent said they do not recommend cryptoassets to clients.

“The lack of knowledge by so many of the nation’s leading financial advisors demonstrates the urgency of teaching advisors about this important emerging asset class,” said Edelman, who has been named three times by Barron’s as the nation’s #1 Independent Financial Advisor. He noted that 80 percent of the advisors surveyed said clients are asking them about cryptoassets and added, “Advisors who can’t answer their clients’ questions about bitcoin will lose credibility with their clients, and they may end up losing the clients.”

Edelman gathered experts from many of the leading firms in the field. Kingdom Trust was the premiere sponsor. Additional sponsors included Bitwise Investments, Blockforce Capital, Fidelity Digital Assets, Grayscale Investments, Orion Advisor Services, Pantera Capital, State Street Global Advisors and Van Eck.

ABCC is developing additional conferences. To learn more, go to www.advisorbcc.com.

“Community is the foundation of CoinAll. We hope to make it larger and stronger. Together with our users, we endeavor to make the industry better in the near future,” said Katherine Deng, General Manager of CoinAll.

CoinAll is a community-driven exchange, which means the users of the CoinAll community have the power to influence the development of the exchange. CoinAll also launches various promotions for the community as well.
