VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Glance Technologies Inc. (CSE:GET:CN) is pleased to announce that it will be attending and speaking on a panel at the inaugural Blockchain Davos event to be held in Davos, Switzerland January 23 - 26, 2018. Glance will also be a sponsor of the event.
Each year in January, the top global leaders gather in Davos from every country and sector to collaborate on developing shared initiatives to improve the condition of our world. Led by 2017’s blockchain boom and the “Fourth Industrial Revolution,” Blockchain Davos is a gathering to build partnerships for a decentralized future. Blockchain Davos is an exclusive invite only conference for attendees. The event is timed to coincide with the annual World Economic Forum, which is also being held in Davos.
Glance is attending the event to raise awareness of its upcoming cryptocurrency and to make further inroads into the worldwide cryptocurrency and blockchain community. Glance’s planned cryptocurrency is a rewards based token that will be granted as rewards to users of the Glance Pay mobile payment app every time they spend on the Glance Pay mobile payment network, whether they have paid with the new cryptocurrency or via other payment methods. This strategy is intended to support rapid adoption of the cryptocurrency to a broad range of consumers, although the app will also be marketed to crypto users in leading urban centers. Glance also intends to apply elements of its anti-fraud technology to this cryptocurrency to reduce the risk associated with converting traditional currencies to and from cryptocurrencies.
This conference will allow Glance to highlight the functionality from its previously announced purchase of the Blockimpact platform, which is a complete end-to-end cryptocurrency blockchain solution including the following features:
- Biometric ID
- Blockchain Distributed Ledger Technology
- Digital messaging / group chat (with functionality similar to Whatsapp)
- Financial wallet
- Open application program interface (API)
- Crypto/token/fiat wallet (which allows seamless conversion between currencies)
- Reward system
- Encrypted cyber security
- In-app support system
- Document sharing
- Social network features
- Peer to Peer marketplace functionality
As a clarification of Glance’s news release dated Dec 07, 2017: Fatburger Canada entered into an agreement with the intent to develop one store for a test trial of Glance’s technology.
