Global Blockchain Market Grows as Financial Organizations Adopt the Technology
FinancialBuzz.com News Commentary

NEW YORK, September 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

According to a report published by Transparency Market Research, the global blockchain technology market is expected to reach USD 20 Billion by 2025 while growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 58.7%. Blockchain technology provides more efficiencies for the various industries, especially in the banking sector. Financial organizations adopt blockchain technology to make transactions more transparent and easier to process. The new technology also helps reduce frauds due to errors, identity theft and offer more safety to the transaction processing as a whole. Blockchain technology has the potential to benefit other industries such as retail, healthcare and supply chain by providing easy access and exchange of digital data. Victory Square Technologies Inc. (OTC: VSQTF), Overstock.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: OSTK), Bitcoin Investment Trust (OTC: GBTC), Banco Santander, S.A. (NYSE: SAN), Xunlei Limited (NASDAQ: XNET)

According to a report released by the World Economic Forum and Bain & Company, the trade finance gap was valued at USD 1.5 Trillion in 2017 and is expected to increase to more than USD 2.4 Trillion by 2025. The report indicated that the distributed ledger technology and other new digital technologies can ease a large part of the gap by facilitating about USD 1.1 Trillion of new trade volumes globally. The increasing adoption of blockchain in trade processes helps dismantle financing barriers for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and emerging markets.

Victory Square Technologies Inc. (OTCQX: VSQTF) is also listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange under the ticker (CSE: VST). Earlier last week, the Company announced breaking news that, "one of its portfolio companies, PayVida Solutions Inc. ("PayVida"), an emerging global payment processor and card issuer, has become the exclusive partner and preferred vendor of British Columbia's Alliance of Beverage Licensees ("ABLE BC").

ABLE BC is the united voice of and a powerful advocate for British Columbia's private liquor industry. Its 1000+ members include private liquor stores, pubs, bars, nightclubs and hotel liquor licensees.

'ABLE BC selected PayVida over other merchant service providers because of its instant application approval process and innovative payment technology,' said PayVida CEO Ryan Strauss. 'We anticipate reducing transaction costs for our members, while growing our membership base through our new partnership.'

PayVida's partnership with ABLE BC creates a direct channel into a network of BC's private hotels and pubs. ABLE BC's Executive Director Jeff Guignard recently completed a 10,000 kilometre, 20 city, 250 liquor licensee tour of BC. Discussions included recent and pending changes to BC's liquor policies and the emerging licensing framework for cannabis retail stores.

'PayVida is more than a payment processing company,' said Guignard. 'This is an opportunity for us to collaborate with an innovative financial technology company, giving our members point-of-sale integrations and same day funding.'

B.C. currently has 670 private liquor stores and 195 government locations, generating over $3 billion of alcohol sales and several billion dollars of indirect economic activity. (Source: https://ablebc.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/Member-Handbook-Updated-April-2018.pdf )

'ABLE BC is a hub to 1,000 thriving businesses that understand the importance and the power of a highly scalable FinTech and payment processing solution to accelerate their business growth. After reviewing other competitors, ABLE selected PayVida to partner with because of the value they place on leading solutions in the payments industry,' said Victory Square Technologies CEO Shafin Diamond Tejani.

Tejani continued, 'PayVida is helping to innovate the FinTech community and Victory Square remains confident that they will continue to make significant strides in this industry and stands fully ready to help support and fuel their growth.'
