Coinquista S.A., a company offering cryptocurrency trading, which in January this year was entered into the register of small payment institutions of the Polish Financial Supervision Authority, has officially opened its exchange.

After the testing phase and the successfully implemented demo version, cryptocurrency trading on the newly opened Coinquista exchange is now available to all users in Poland and around the world. The product has been developed since 2017 and on January 22nd this year the company was entered in the register of small payment institutions kept by the Polish Financial Supervision Authority. Coinquista S.A. is one of the first companies providing cryptocurrency trading platform, which were included in the register.

“Our main goal was to create a safe and easy-to-use product. Standards defined by the Polish Financial Supervision Authority are quite rigorous compared to other countries, so the very fact of registering in Poland will require us to maintain the highest standards.

 Currently, the benefits of trading in cryptocurrencies are reserved mainly for people who have been dealing with the financial world for a long time. However, you do not need to be an expert to use our exchange. Cryptocurrencies and the technology behind them is a future that one does not need to be afraid of.” says Ireneusz Pukin, CEO of Coinquista.

To further encourage users to try their hand at cryptocurrency trading, everyone receives 100 CoinquistaCoins during registration. The virtual coins give a number of benefits, such as trade with a lower commission, the use of additional products at preferential prices, as well as the priority care of the adviser. Other bonuses, such as physical carriers of cryptocurrency portfolios, are also provided for the most active.

In addition, Coinquista lowered maker fees to 0%. It means that traders can set as many orders as possible and derive benefits from the market potential to the maximum.

Introducing a ready-made product to the market, however, is only the beginning of the company’s ambitious plans. Despite the rapid changes in Bitcoin prices in recent years, the number of users of blockchain wallets is growing faster and faster. To keep pace with the development of the market, Coinquista plans to prepare a modern mobile application with a payment card, open a school of investment and apply for a license of a domestic payment institution in Poland.

All questions regarding the product can be directed to hello@coinquista.com.

An innovative staff incentive programme leveraging blockchain and real estate tokenization technology

Stan Group (Holdings) Limited (“Stan Group”) announced the launch of Buy-a-Brick, an innovative employee incentive and recognition programme that applies blockchain technology and real estate tokenization to enable Stan Group employees to generate wealth alongside Stan Group.

Committed to driving corporate innovation, Stan Group has pioneered the application of real estate tokenization to employee incentive and recognition. Buy-a-Brick is designed to motivate staff engagement in innovation, cultivate intrapreneurship and recognize staff for the efforts. Unlike other conventional revenue-sharing models, Buy-a-Brick provides employees with the opportunity to share the future capital gain of a building, without making any monetary contribution. A “Brick” is a digital token stored on the blockchain, which represents a smart contract for a selected building. By participating in Buy-a-Brick, if the property selected is sold and profit is made on the sale of that property, the brick holders will be entitled to share the profit made.

“We are thrilled to launch Buy-a-Brick for internal staff as it redefines staff appreciation. I believe every one of our staff members plays an integral role in the Group’s success and should be able to reap the reward and share the value created,” said Stan Tang, Chairman of Stan Group. “The launch of Buy-a-Brick has cemented the leading position of Stan Group in corporate innovation and entrepreneurship. Buy-a-Brick started with a dream, through matching the idea with resources within our business ecosystem, it is now a reality. I hope to ignite innovation and initiate change within and outside the Group, and shape a better future for entrepreneurs and all.”

Buy-a-Brick is the newest addition to the existing Stan Group credit system, where employees earn points with innovative business pitches, business referral, attending design thinking and other talent development workshops, etc. There are two types of points, namely Credit Point and Shared Value Point. With Credit Point, employees can redeem vouchers, hotel stay, and even an extra day off. On the other hand, the new Shared Value Points can be used to redeem a “Brick” at Buy-a-Brick.

About Stan Group

Stan Group (Holdings) Limited (“Stan Group” or “the Group”) is a leading conglomerate rooted in property with a wide array of diverse businesses. Committed to sustainable business development and social investment, the Group manages a HK$60 billion real estate portfolio in strategic partnership with the Tang Shing-bor family and operates more than 40 respected brands across five business pillars: property, hospitality, communication services, financial services and The STILE, innovative businesses with social purposes.
