FintruX logo800 - VF2018 Silver Partner:  FINTRUX NETWORKMaking Unsecured Loans Easy, Fast, and Highly Secure

FintruX Network is the true P2P lending ecosystem built on the blockchain, powered by credit enhancements and no-code generation. The platform makes it easy for borrowers to connect with reputable lenders and servicing agencies, save money with competitive interest rates, and get an affordable loan within minutes in a fair and transparent process without physical collateral. FintruX Network aims to disrupt the way unsecured loans are being originated and administered, making unsecured loans highly secure.

An unsecured loan is a loan that is not protected or secured by any asset. In this case the lender is taking a lot more risk and would likely charge a higher interest rate. The riskier the loan, the more expensive it will be. We are going to change that.

While pursuing traditional financing, small businesses do not have access to loans when they most need it. Banks prefer to lend cash on cash, and the loan amounts requested are usually too small for financial institutions to do efficiently. If a loan is procured from alternative financing sources, the interest rate is generally too high. Finance companies only utilize a few data sets to evaluate SME borrower worthiness resulting in poor representation of credit, and traditional p2p lenders offer high interest rates due to private equity backing. Additionally, capital that could have been invested in small business credit has been largely locked out of the market. Individual investors generally lack the size and access to directly invest in small business credit, and while institutional investors have had some access to this market, they lack the tools to customize portfolios to their specific risk tolerance.

BIS | May 31, 2023 Discover how AI, data, and cross-border collaboration are shaking up the battle against financial crimes. Proof of Concept Completion and Advancements: The BIS Innovation Hub's Nordic Centre has successfully wrapped up Project Aurora, a proof of concept aimed at combating money laundering. By leveraging a synthetic data set representing real-world domestic and international payments data, advanced privacy-enhancing technologies, AI, and enhanced cooperation across entities and borders, the project showcased the transformative potential of these technologies in anti-money laundering (AML) efforts. Enhanced tools for data analysis helped identify suspicious patterns, moving beyond the limitations of current systems that often operate in silos. AML efforts have a significant financial burden on institutions, with costs rising by about $60 billion to roughly $274 billion between 2020 and 2022. Despite these efforts, a majority of laundered money remains undetected, indicating that existing methods are inadequate. Project Aurora offers a more effective and potentially cost-efficient approach, focusing on behavioral-based analysis, a stark contrast to the prevailing rules-based approach.

Finance Canada | Release | Jun 7, 2023 The Government of Canada has launched this public consultation to examine ways to improve Canada's Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorist Financing Regime.  Submissions to this consultation will close on August 1, 2023. The Government of Canada is undertaking a comprehensive review of its Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorist Financing (AML/ATF) Regime in response to evolving risks and threats in the financial sector.

It will also assess emerging risks in certain sectors, such as digital assets, crowdfunding platforms, mortgage lending entities, and armoured car companies, among others.

Aljazeera | Jun 5, 2-23 The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has sued Coinbase, accusing the largest US cryptocurrency platform of operating illegally because it failed to register as an exchange. Coinbase, the largest US crypto platform, is under scrutiny for alleged security law breaches related to its staking rewards program. The SEC claims that Coinbase has been acting as an intermediary for cryptocurrency transactions since at least 2019, evading necessary investor protection disclosures. The company is also charged with trading at least 13 crypto assets deemed securities, which should have been registered, including Solana, Cardano, and Polygon. The lawsuit is part of SEC Chairman Gary Gensler's push to increase oversight of the rapidly growing crypto industry, which he has referred to as a "wild West" of investing. The legal actions against Coinbase and Binance signal the SEC's intent to enforce existing market regulations in the cryptocurrency sector, an industry that has often been accused of regulatory ambiguity. See:  Breaking: SEC Files Charges Against Binance for Mishandling Funds and Deceiving Regulators Market Impact: Shares in Coinbase Global Inc dropped by as much as 20.9% following the announcement of the lawsuit, with customers reportedly withdrawing over $57m shortly after ...

Forbes | Alex Konrad | Jun 6, 2023 Venture capital’s biggest global brand is breaking up, with Sequoia’s China and India and Southeast Asia funds relaunching as new firms HongShan and Peak XV Partners. Sequoia Capital's Global Breakup: Venture capital heavyweight Sequoia Capital is splitting into three distinct entities, each targeting a specific geographic region. Sequoia Capital will focus on the U.S. and Europe, while the newly formed HongShan and Peak XV Partners will serve China and India/Southeast Asia respectively. This move could impact funding markets by adjusting the balance of power among global venture capital firms, potentially leading to a redistribution of capital and shifting the competitive landscape within the targeted regions. See:  Which Companies Were Affected by FTX’s Collapse? Increased Regional Autonomy: As separate entities, HongShan and Peak XV Partners will no longer share profits or back-office functions with Sequoia Capital. This autonomy should allow each firm to better align their strategies with their respective regional market dynamics, while mitigating conflicts and complexities tied to centralized operations. It may trigger a ripple effect in the funding landscape as other venture capital firms may consider similar operational adjustments for their own regional branches.

U.S. Financial Services Committee | Jun 5, 2023 Expanding Investment Opportunities: The U.S. House of Representatives has approved seven bipartisan financial services bills aimed at strengthening public markets and boosting capital formation. Expanding the Accredited Investor Definition: Key among these is H.R. 835, the Fair Investment Opportunities for Professional Experts Act, which widens the definition of accredited investor. This is expected to increase the pool of potential investors for small businesses and emerging companies, especially minority entrepreneurs who frequently face challenges in securing funding. Other significant legislation includes H.R. 2608 and H.R. 2610, both sponsored by Chairman Patrick McHenry. These bills intend to improve the attractiveness of public markets for emerging growth companies by clarifying and extending financial reporting obligations under the JOBS Act of 2012. This could potentially streamline the process of initial public offerings (IPOs) or spin-offs, which in turn can drive efficiency and capital formation. See:  Improving the Regulatory Environment for Entrepreneurial Capital Formation: JOBS Act 4.0 Increasing Access and Protection in Capital Markets: Legislation such as the Accredited Investor Definition Review Act (H.R. 1579) and the Senior Security Act of 2023 (H.R. 2593) demonstrates a dual commitment to opening up investment opportunities and safeguarding investor interests ...
