The Kaspersky’s report, ‘Uncharted territory: why consumers are still wary about adopting cryptocurrency’, reveals that whilst 29% of people have some knowledge of cryptocurrencies and there is a demand among many to use the technology, just one-in-ten (10%) fully comprehend how they work.
The rate in which cryptocurrencies are being adopted by global consumers is slowing down, despite celebrities like Johnny Depp and YouTube influencers such PewDiePie embracing the technology. Many consumers still lack a proper understanding of how cryptocurrencies work and this is continuing to halt mainstream adoption. To date, four-in-five people (81%) have never purchased cryptocurrency, highlighting just how far away we are from it being accepted as a common form of payment or investment.
Kaspersky’s survey found that there is a desire amongst many consumers to use cryptocurrency, but a knowledge gap is getting in the way of taking the plunge. In addition, many people who thought they knew with what they are dealing with, later decided against using cryptocurrency. Nearly a fifth (18%) stopped because it became too technically complicated.
This lack of understanding could be leading to mistrust in cryptocurrencies’ ability to keep consumers’ money safe. For instance, nearly a third (31%) of respondents stated that they believe cryptocurrencies are quite volatile and they need to be stabile before they are prepared to use them. There is also a common perception amongst consumers that cryptocurrency will not be around forever. A third (35%) believe cryptocurrencies are a fad that is not worth bothering about.
While widespread interest in cryptocurrencies may have already peaked, there is still a demand to use the technology. Almost every sixth (14%) of those surveyed said that while they are not using cryptocurrency at the moment, they would like to do so in the future. Yet there is still doubt amongst consumers – often led by a fear that there is a real risk to their finances. Fraudsters can use cryptocurrencies to their advantage, with around one-in-five (19%) of those surveyed saying they have experienced hacking attacks on exchanges. Criminals also create fake e-wallets to attract people to unwisely invest their money, and 15% of consumers have been victims of cryptocurrency fraud.
Following several years of cybersecurity research into crypto start-ups, Kaspersky recommends crypto businesses adopt best security practices for smart contract developers, use proven frameworks for smart contracts (such as https://openzeppelin.org/) and conduct a third-party assessment of the smart contract to ensure any potential vulnerabilities are not missed.
“It is clear that mainstream adoption and growth of cryptocurrency is being held back due to the vulnerable nature of the technology. While there is a high appetite to use it, giving your hard-earned cash to something you don’t fully understand, or trust, is a hurdle. With the safety of investments being of paramount importance to consumers, it is vital that they take their own steps to safeguard it. Like with any cyberthreat, there is no substitute for vigilance – if something looks too good to be true, then it probably is. If you want to trade crypto-assets on any exchange, pay attention to the safety of your account’s credentials. If your goal is long-term investment or use crypto-currencies for payments, then store it in safe environments and use multiple wallets, or distribute between both software and hardware. We also encourage crypto businesses to organize themselves effectively to show they are able to protect their customers’ investments,” Vitaly Mzokov, Head of Commercialization at Kaspersky comments.
To help improve stability and foster trust in cryptocurrencies, Kaspersky partners such as Merkeleon have developed legitimate marketplace platforms, online auction platforms, cryptocurrency exchanges and crypto payment systems.
“Cryptocurrency certainly has its benefits but, as we can see, many consumers are still unaware of what they are due to concerns over security and how the technology works. It is an exciting industry to be involved in but it is one that is built upon trust. It is, therefore, imperative that cryptocurrency businesses do all they can to protect their networks and ensure their customers’ finances are safe and secure,” explains Alexey Sidorowich, Head of Sales and Business Development at Merkeleon.

Stablecorp Announces the Beta Launch of Yield as a Service Digital – Fully Transparent, Data-Driven, Yield Generation Technology
Stablecorp, a Canadian blockchain technology company, today announced the beta launch of Yield as a Service Digital, or YaaS, a suite of multi-currency yield generation and analytics technologies. YaaS offers unparalleled transparency and analysis into a wide variety of both traditional and digital yield generation sources while providing superior visibility into asset location and holding details; underwriting and risk analysis practices on various yield-generating platforms; and additional risk mitigation and optimization mechanisms for each.
The YaaS technology is intended to generate exceptional risk-adjusted yield within the full universe of yield verticals and to improve access to these yields via digital assets such as stablecoins. The YaaS technology does this in five key ways:
- Taking a “composable ecosystem” approach by opportunistically selecting the top traditional, centralized, decentralized, and combined finance yield generation tools
- Using a blend of traditional and digital asset-based empirical data to select, back test and assess credit and exploit risks as well as mitigants across these platforms
- Increasing stablecoin-based access to high-quality corporate and government yields
- Maintaining real-time transparency of positions and real-time risk mitigation strategies, including on-chain monitoring, collateralization, insurance and senior tranche structures
- Taking advantage of additional yield optimizing tools and platforms to increase efficiency and effectiveness of yield generation
“With the significant disruptions inherent in the digital asset markets over the past six months and the meaningful rise in traditional interest rates, it is beyond time for a comprehensive yield analytics framework in the space. With YaaS, Stablecorp’s fundamental goal is to find the best and brightest yield opportunities across the full spectrum, assess them using a blend of traditional and novel frameworks, and access them using US dollar and Canadian dollar-denominated digital assets,” said Alex McDougall, CEO of YaaS parent company Stablecorp. “This doesn’t just mean the arbitrage and trading type of yield that we’ve seen to date in the digital asset space, but also more efficient forms of access to traditional corporate and government credit.”
Maple Finance, Idle Finance, Unslashed, Morpho Labs, Cinch and Component Finance are some of the initial platforms used in the YaaS technology suite.
“Maple’s on-chain lending platform provides industry leading credit professionals with the tools to run institutional lending businesses. The combination of blockchain technology with the highest underwriting standards provides capital allocators with fully transparent, non-custodial, risk-adjusted yield options. We are excited to partner with YaaS and connect their technology to an expanding range of opportunities on Maple,” said Sidney Powell, CEO of Maple Finance.
“Morpho enhances yields of lenders on DeFi platforms strictly by optimizing the underlying technology while preserving the same risk parameters and the same liquidity. We’re thrilled to work with composable platforms like YaaS to deliver better risk adjusted DeFi value propositions to their technology,” said Paul Frambot, CEO of Morpho Labs.
“At Idle, we are on a mission to step up DeFi by reimagining how we manage risk and yields. Our Senior Perpetual Yield Tranches (PYTs) offer intrinsic capital protection, as they are covered by Junior PYTs from a wide spectrum of risks. DeFi is stuck in subpar risk management and with PYTs, YaaS can seamlessly turn on and off tranching solutions and manage risks in real-time on a broad variety of underlying platforms. We are extremely excited for this partnership,” said Matteo Pandolfi, CEO at Idle Labs.
“Decentralized insurance protocols are critical to mitigating tail-risk in the space and the Unslashed protocol has generated a significant track record of paying out claims through the recent turmoil. We’re excited to work with YaaS to continue to bring these real-time, structured mitigants to their technology solutions,” said a co-founder of Unslashed.
Beta Launch Details
- YaaS is currently in a closed beta environment, and is conducting pilot tests with several select business partners
- Full-release version of the YaaS technology is anticipated for Q1 2023
- If interested in a demo or participating in the beta, please visit https://yaasdigital.com
Stablecorp is a leading Canadian fintech firm building bank-grade blockchain technology.

indu4.0 powered by INDU – A native token to cover crucial needs of the manufacturing industry
The world of technology is filled with buzzwords these days. From AR to VR, AI to blockchain, it can be difficult to know when these technologies are worth leveraging. Several manufacturing businesses find blockchain particularly appealing because of its ability to be applied to various business processes, coupled with its inherent security and reliability. indu4.0 is one of many projects emerging in the industrial sector! indu4.0 is a blockchain-based project, seeking to revamp manufacturing with its native token, INDU.
Indu4.0 AG is a Swiss-based company that developed its platform indu4.0. indu4.0 project is a digital B2B marketplace targeted at the manufacturing industry that seeks to link supply and demand more efficiently and economically. This project aims to pioneer a digital B2B marketplace for the trillion-dollar manufacturing industry. It has already integrated numerous complex industrial products and services into the user-friendly platform with sophisticated filter systems. This article comprehensively overviews this cutting-edge platform and its native token for the manufacturing industry. Read on to learn more about its features, tokens, and benefits!
What is an INDU token?
The INDU token serves as the payment token for the Indu4.0 AG services. Thus users will be able to pay with INDU tokens for everything the company offers, including virtual trade shows, events, advertisements, and exclusive industry reports. With the INDU token, manufacturing will finally have its own currency, with a value more easily tradable. The INDU token will have 750,000,000 pieces, of which 37% are sold at the ICO at a very low price.
Use Cases of the INDU Token
- With INDU tokens, users can access advertising services and industry reports.
- INDU tokens can be used exclusively to purchase exhibition stands at events organised by Indu4.0 AG. Additionally, INDU tokens can be used to pay for events and trade fairs in the metaverse.
- The platform makes it possible to securely exchange sensitive and proprietary data, thanks to NFT technology. The INDU token will be used to verify each file’s owner.
The public presale of INDU tokens is currently underway. Sign up for the Presale here. You can take part in the sale to own INDU tokens. It is expected that the funds collected from the presale will be used to expand the team of developers. The money will also be used to cover marketing expenses and pay for infrastructure and office costs.
What are the benefits of the INDU token?
Potential Price Increases
indu4.0 is a new initiative to transform the manufacturing industry – the biggest sector in the world. This digital revolution will depend on the INDU token, which aims to become a native token for manufacturing. Right now, you can buy INDU tokens for a very low price, which is a worthwhile investment. As time passes, more INDU tokens will come into circulation, increasing token value. Now’s the time to join the journey to revolutionize the industrial sector!
Reward Program for Recommendations
indu4.0 has a loyalty program that rewards long-term users with INDU tokens. The indu4.0 platform rewards active users who subscribe and keep their profiles up-to-date. Customers can choose from three loyalty levels – Beginners, Pros, and Elites – based on their usage of the indu4.0 platform and the revenue generated. Each loyalty level offers a different reward.
Access to the Metaverse
Metaverse refers to a highly interactive virtual world. Metaverse users can trade digital assets like documents, files, and other digital assets, just like in the real world. A virtual space is available on indu4.0 for platform users where they can upload, watch and place ads using their INDU token. Users of INDU tokens will have priority access to the manufacturing metaverse, where they can buy and own property.
Being a part of the next Industrial Revolution
Blockchain solutions can alleviate common manufacturing pain points, such as onboarding suppliers and distributing products. Indu 4.0 AG developed the indu4.0 platform to unlock the potential of the manufacturing sector by integrating blockchain technology. Currently, the company offers many features to its users, and the INDU token also offers many benefits. This project has high ambitions, and its roadmap reflects those ambitions. There will be a lot of development in the future. Potential community members should participate in the next Industrial Revolution by being part of indu4.0 by acquiring INDU token!
What are the benefits of indu4.0 for manufacturers?
Sophisticated Filter System
indu4.0 manufactures a range of highly automated, fully enclosed, sophisticated filter systems for the manufacturing sector. With its sophisticated filter system, users can quickly find what they are looking for. Thus, users can be confident that they will receive inquiries suitable for their specific offers.
In the recent pandemic, the metaverse concept gained traction as people avoided in-person interaction, businesses adopted remote working policies, and digital communication methods became more prevalent. The blockchain-based, shared virtual space in indu4.0 allows users to explore and interact with a virtual world. The indu4.0 metaverse space lets you advertise on the platform or find trade shows you can pay for using INDU tokens. Furthermore, virtual exhibitions help to reduce the overall emissions of companies and thus contribute to their carbon footprint.
indu4.0 presents new security standard – IDS
indu4.0 presents IDS (indu Data Security), their future security standard for all industry data. This shows that data security is the primary focus in the indu4.0 platform. This IDS is responsible for the data security of all kinds of data in the platform such as technical drawings, blueprints, and industry sensitive data.
Connecting buyers and suppliers
With indu4.0, suppliers and purchasers can connect more efficiently and effectively. Through the platform, buyers can send offer requests directly to suppliers with just a few clicks. The search function is fully functional, and they can use the platform without logging in. indu4.0 lets you search for suppliers easily and quickly. It’s easy for the purchaser to find suppliers for the services they need with standardised terms and filter steps. Meanwhile, suppliers can create company profiles and view all offer requests from purchasers which leads to new customer acquisition opportunities.
The indu4.0 reporting system has exclusive features designed to attract potential users. The platform’s reporting system gathers and organises data from databases into reports, manages them, and distributes them to users so they can make better business decisions. With INDU tokens, users can buy advertising and benefit from lower fees thanks to paying with INDU.
There is no way for the purchaser to search for a specific item. Nowadays, the options are all tedious and inefficient, so you have to do a lot of searches or check suppliers manually. To solve this problem, indu4.0 lets you search for suppliers easily and quickly. It’s easy for the purchaser to find suppliers for the services they need with standardised terms and filter steps.
In today’s digital age, it’s more important than ever to entice potential customers with your new platform. Today, it’s crucial to have content in a language that visitors can understand. As a result, the indu4.0 platform will be multilingual, supporting EN, DE, FR, and IT languages, so buyers and suppliers can choose the language they prefer.
Manufacturing is one of the world’s largest industries, worth trillions of dollars and employing millions of people. The industry, however, suffers from inefficiencies. The problems can be solved if manufacturers and suppliers are more easily connected. The idea of indu4.0 came from bringing manufacturers and suppliers together. This platform uses blockchain technology to improve communication and collaboration between both sides.
The roadmap for indu4.0 is ambitious, and the team is doing everything possible to make it a success. INDU tokens will fuel the indu4.0 platform, helping you reach new heights in the industrial sphere. The INDU token is supposed to become the industry currency and facilitate more realistic trading. Hence, it is a great opportunity for crypto enthusiasts to become part of the next Industrial Revolution. If you’re looking for a project that’ll transform the manufacturing industry for the better, indu4.0 is a groundbreaking option. Take advantage of this potential earning opportunity and be part of this biggest change!

Swiss Startup dua.com with 5M+ users officially lists on AllianceBlock Fundrs platform
The DUA token is set to become the first project to list on AllianceBlocks peer to peer participatory funding platform. Dua is powering the internal economy and matchmaking experience of international migrants, expats and diaspora communities.
In August, AllianceBlock launched Fundrs, a peer-to-peer funding platform, on Avalanche and Ethereum Mainnet networks. This release marked a key milestone for AllianceBlock, fulfilling the vision of a participatory funding platform based on reputation and merit that started its journey in 2019. Today the Fundrs platform comes to life with the official listing of the DUA token.
Fundrs is the result of years of work for AllianceBlock, beginning with a vision in 2018 of a decentralized participatory economy enabled by a fully-decentralized peer-to-peer funding platform based on reputation and merit. Fundrs uses a decentralized infrastructure which allows blockchain-based projects and traditional startups, called “Seekers”, to receive funding from the platform’s users, as well as provide access to other types of financing available later in the investment cycle, such as convertible loans, peer-to-peer lending and more.
The dua Foundation is the first project to officially list on Fundrs, its utility token DUA will support the new economic system around globally-fragmented communities.
After raising USD 4M in a Series A round, dua AG, a Swiss-based startup, announces plans to tokenize its 5M+ users through cryptocurrencies and decentralized technologies. Dua Foundation, a Dutch-based non-profit organization and dua AG’s partner has recently published a whitepaper outlining plans for introducing globally fragmented communities to the DUA token and Web3 through the apps dua.com and spotted.de.
The DUA utility token will power the ecosystem of apps (dua.com and spotted.de) which focus on connecting people who are searching for relationships based on similar traits such as; values, education, religion, origin and language. The tokenized experience creates a reward system based on in-app activities and user reputation which drives the ability of end-users to participate and benefit from a fairer economy. The DUA token will also be used to purchase in-app subscriptions, and businesses can use it for advertising their products and services to duas user base.
Ardit Trikshiqi — Chief Payments Officer at dua.com “The launch of the DUA token is an innovation for the matchmaking industry. DUA will enable 5 million users of dua.com and spotted.de to engage in a participative virtual economy that offers a wide range of services and is growing exponentially every day and millions of individuals and businesses, part of globally fragmented communities that are not being supported by traditional financial providers such as banks or money transfer operators.”
The DUA powered ecosystem will offer communities who don’t have access to traditional financial services a simple way to access and participate in DeFi services directly inside the apps. An in-built wallet will open the gate to on-chain remittances, payments, and borrowing opportunities for millions of individuals who have historically been financially underserved.
These communities will have access to self-sovereign identities via the use of dua_ID, a solution that gathers users online footprints in the form of reputation. This bundles together a user’s online presence to create an immutable online identity which businesses can use to vet users with certain reputations so that their communities and platforms can create a safe environment for people to participate in.
Rachid Ajaja – Founder and CEO of AllianceBlock “Fundrs is a revolutionary step in our vision towards a truly decentralized participatory economy. It is a culmination of our original vision in 2018 to provide unbiased access to a peer-to-peer funding platform based on reputation and merit. With dua as our first listing we will be able to target globally fragmented communities which is fully in line with our mission to bring access to the best companies in a fair, transparent and inclusive participatory economy.”
As we transition into a decentralized economy, platforms like Fundrs are providing the launchpad for young ventures to have access to advice and capital that is available, traditionally, to the select few. By creating an end-to-end development infrastructure for blockchain builders, AllianceBlock has been able to facilitate a seamless gate-way from Traditional to Decentralized Finance. This creates a new start-up-as-a-service model, which enables capital providers to become an incredibly important part of the lifecycle of any project, giving them an opportunity to play a role in the funding, advising, marketing, and operation of any project. Dua is the first project to leverage that vision using Fundrs, and as it officially lists on the platform it becomes the first in a long line of innovative ventures that want to be included in a participatory economy that champions reputation and merit.
AllianceBlock is building seamless gateways between TradFi and DeFi by remedying issues in both spheres and linking them more closely. AllianceBlock sees the future of finance as an integrated system in which the best of both worlds can work together to increase capital flows and technological innovation.
They are building this future by bridging traditional finance with compliant, data-driven access to new decentralized markets, DeFi projects and ecosystem-scaling tools such as funding and interoperability. As such, they are building a next-generation financial infrastructure that aims to provide regulated financial entities worldwide with the tools they need to access the DeFi space seamlessly.
About dua Foundation
Dua Foundation is a Dutch-based non-profit organization central to promoting, growing, and developing globally fragmented communities. Its strategic and blockchain advisors include AllianceBlock Co-Founders Rachid Ajaja (CEO) and Matthijs De Vries (CTO), SEBA Crypto AG and IBM Former Executive Christen Oesterbye, dua AG Founder and CEO Valon Asani, and Entrepreneur and DeFi specialist Dite Gashi.

Kodo Assets Introduces New Way To Invest In Real Estate Through Tokenization and Blockchain Technology
● KODO Assets platform offers 140 USD quotas for a commercial property in Faria Lima region, in São Paulo.
● Using blockchain technology, Kodo Assets intends to democratize the access to real estate market for investors – globally available – making the profitability of the investment very clear
São Paulo, Brazil, 24th October 2022 – A Brazil-based blockchain and real estate project has recently announced its launching of a real-estate tokenization platform – Kodo Assets. Watchful of the demands of the real estate market and the evolution of blockchain technology, Kodo Assets, a real estate tokenization platform – which arrives in the market to democratize the access to real estate investment, help increase liquidity of such assets and reduce the barriers of access to this market, be it due to high transaction costs or red tape – , announces its first real estate tokenization project in Brazil.
Tokenization allows properties to be broken down into countless, small digital parts, which can be sold to many people for a relatively low unit price, thus democratizing the access to this type of investment. With tokenization, it’s possible to invest more accessible amounts in exchange for tokens of real estate assets. The real estate token is a low risk investment when compared to stocks or crypto assets and has a lower entry level cost, as the minimum ticket cost for investment is lower when compared to the real estate market. The token market works globally, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and it has been estimated that the liquidity of the KODO1 tokens is considerably higher than investing directly in traditional real estate units.
The first property to be tokenized by Kodo Assets is a commercial property located on Faria Lima Avenue, a prime area of the city of São Paulo, and its total area is of 1,144.52m², with BOMA gross area of 552.58m², private area of 473m² and common area of 671.52m². The entire complex is currently rented by a large multinational.
The main revenue expected to be received from this property is rent. The yearly profitability expectation for the token is, with all discounts included, 6% until June 2023, and 6%+ annual adjustment of the rent using IGPM. The resulting value after fees will be distributed as dividends to KODO1, which emits the tokens that represent the inherent rights to the property. To do so, Kodo Assets will take care of the distribution of the revenue to the owners of each token to their own wallets, considering the participation of each in this venture. The payment of the proportional profits for the token holders will be done using Stablecoin USDC, the stablecoin holding the highest credibility and transparency in the crypto market. The payment will be made in the same wallet that holds the KODO1 tokens at the moment of the distribution.
“The owner of the KODO1 token will have the right to receive dividends from the rents of this property, proportionally to his or her participation in the tokens versus the total number of tokens issued by the project and an eventual sale of the underlying real estate, which can generate an interesting capital gain”. – summarizes Ciro Iamamura, the CEO of Kodo Assets.
The company will issue a total of 25 thousand tokens for this property, each sold for $140.00, besides the KYC/AML verification costs, which amounts to $13 for a single person, or $25 for a legal entity. The minimum purchase value is 1 KODO1 token, and there are no limits to how many can be purchased. The total offer value is US$ 3,500,000.00. The sales are expected to happen around November 2022.
Through blockchain technology, the idea is that the company can collaborate with this revolution in the real estate sector, allowing investors to purchase real estate in a fast and safe manner, without the red tape and high costs of the traditional market, and having access to different markets all over the world.
“We are talking about global access to markets that, until now, were local, limited by geographic location of the properties or because they were available only for qualified investors.In this sense, digitizing real estate can facilitate the access to these investments, as they become available for people all over the world. We believe that asset tokenization can be fundamental to revolutionize this market all over the world”, highlights Ciro.
The property, located on Faria Lima Avenue, is just the first project by Kodo Assets in Brazil. According to Helena Margarido, advisor for Kodo Assets, there is a growing and justifiable demand for real estate in São Paulo. “The average price per square meter in downtown is around US$2,613.042. However, if we consider some of its sister cities, we can find, for example, Chicago, with an average price of US$4,137.144, and Lisbon, with an average of US$5,239.255. Because of this, it is plausible to believe that the value of real estate in São Paulo is (very) underpriced. In other words, believing in an ever growing appreciation of real estate for this city in the next few years is a natural conclusion when we see how important São Paulo is in the world, and average prices in similar cities”.
Kodo Assets Token
To have access to the Tokens, the investor must access Kodo Assets’ official website, fill out a personal information form, present documents and go through the facial recognition process. After the KYC/AML (know your customer and anti-money laundering) verifications and having the registration approved, the user can purchase as many KODO1 tokens as he or she wants. Payment can be made in USDC, USDT and BUSD, as long as they are made in networks that support EVM. Token transfer will happen as soon as the tokens are at disposal, and will be sent to the same wallet where the resources used to pay for the token came from. For KYC/AML reasons, under no circumstances will the token be transferred to a wallet that has not been submitted to the verification process.
Whoever holds the token has access to all the information regarding it stored in blockchain and available for inquiry, if needed. Even if the asset is sold hundreds of times, it is possible to track each transaction and find the current owner easily. This feature brings transparency and reliability to the transactions.
“Using smart contracts renders intermediation to negotiate and register the tokens useless. Besides reducing costs for not needing a third party, the whole process becomes much more agile and efficient. In this sense, tokenization can increase the efficiency and drastically reduce the costs of each transaction, TOKEN which strengthens the market as a whole”, says Ciro Iamamura.
