Jan Marsalek could be linked to secret Russian government operations

Wirecard’s recently indicted former Director of Operations, Jan Marsalek, may have had ties to Russian intelligence services. He also allegedly had secret Ethereum Code documents about the use of a Russian chemical weapon in the UK.

According to the Financial Times, the former Wirecard executive boasted of his ties to the intelligence services in an effort to further integrate with London traders.

The recovered documents contain specific data on the formula of the world’s deadliest nerve agent, known as Novichok. The chemical weapon was used in the poisoning of a former Russian spy, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter Julia, on March 4, 2018.

The UK military experts do not believe that the leaked documents originated from the member states of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in Western Europe. Nor do they believe that they came from the United States, due to their restricted circulation which is limited to OPCW member states.

German authorities are trying to ascertain Marsalek’s whereabouts. The former executive resigned from Wirecard in June after authorities discovered a $2.1 billion deficit on the firm’s books.

Wirecard’s former CEO, Markus Braun, was arrested by Munich police on June 23 after he was accused of misrepresenting the company’s balances.

The Financial Times also reported that Wirecard’s former chief operating officer entered the Philippines through Manila in June, before traveling to China from Cebu, according to Philippine immigration records.

However, Philippine Attorney General Menardo Guevarra said

„CCTV footage does not show him arriving here, and there is no record of any flight to China scheduled for the morning of June 24 from Cebu.

Webinar organised by Izertis and Alastria has a large number of participants in Spain

Tomorrow, May 20, a videoconference will be held in Spain that has been called a round table, in which great exponents of blockchain technology will be present.

The webinar will take place at 12:00 hrs and it is expected that companies such as Jorge Ordovás the Co-Director of blockchain of Telefónica; Jaume Castanyer (IT Architect) of IBM; José Mínguez (Head of Innovation Market Iberia) of Endesa; Valentín G. Souto (Chief Innovation and External Outreach Officer) of Bizkaia Lantik; Alberto G. Toribio (Head of Blockchain Products of Bankia) for Bankia; Miguel Palacio (Hazitek Project Manager) for Petronar; and Richard Villaverde (CIO) of Capsa Food are participating in the event.

The meeting is being organized by the technology company Izertis and Alastria. Izertis is a company that has already offered real solutions to Blockchain cases in Spain, and others that are still under development.

As a result of the EU’s call to help refugees from Venezuela, the use of Blockchain technology could guarantee transparency

Alastria is a nonprofit organization that brings together companies in Spain, aimed at implementing the digital economy and the democratization of the blockchain, has many associations a Bitcoin Future – Crypto Genius – Bitcoin Method – Bitcoin Lifestyle – Bitcoin Gemini T that is already in operation. Alastria currently has at least 44 use cases deployed by partners, with a diversity of applications in sectors such as fintech, real estate, transport and logistics, document management and certification, agrifood, health, human resources, NGOs and education, among others.

This conglomerate of companies represented by Alastria demonstrates that Spain wants to be at the forefront of adopting blockchain technologies in an efficient manner, and for this reason webinars such as this one are the space to promote the implementation of these new technologies.

Coronavirus Effects

Izertis, for its part, is a technology company that firmly believes that the blockchain is a solution that should be used immediately. The pandemic showed that many of the employers were not prepared to switch to teleworking, and therefore the employees were less prepared.

Many of the transactions that generate a business can be done on a network, and out of ignorance or disbelief if you like, blockchain networks are not implemented. And the fact is that human nature indicates that we fear what we do not know or understand; hence the importance of events such as these, experts must express in simple and straightforward terms the basic concepts of technology, and with this, make more followers every day.

The great acceptance and confirmed seats that the Webinar has had has meant that journalists will be able to ask their questions on a regular basis, but any press questions that remain unanswered during the event can be requested through the email address that appears in this call, and will be returned as soon as possible.

Training in blockchain technology arouses interest in Spain

Recently Victor Gonzalez, Head of DX Tech Services at Izertis, in an interview with Estrategias de Inversión, commented on the implementation and interest of the blockchain:

„…we hope that Spain will continue to lead in this type of initiative because our country is a pioneer in blockchain technology and is very well positioned internationally; in Spain we have a very powerful ecosystem with leading companies like Izertis. And finally, as a result of the scenario created by the pandemic we are suffering from, we see that the application of this technology in the health sector, where we see an increasing interest, is going to accelerate considerably“.

Tomorrow’s Webinar seeks to promote this implementation and that is why the massive participation that the event has is important, which promises a new perspective of blockchain implementation in Spain.

Chinas Blockkettenrausch: über 26.000 Unternehmen tätig, fast 80.000 registriert

Chinas Blockketteninitiativen haben die Ambitionen des Landes, in naher Zukunft eine Supermacht zu werden, erweitert. Ergänzt wird diese Aussage durch die jüngsten Angaben zur Zahl der blockkettengesteuerten Unternehmen wie Bitcoin Code im Land. Nach den jüngsten LongHash-Daten sind in China mehr als 26.000 Blockkettenunternehmen tätig und fast 80.000 sind legal registrierte Firmen.

Bitcoin Code investiert auch in China

Guangdong, eine Küstenprovinz im Südosten Chinas, hat die höchste Anzahl an Blockkettenunternehmen. Insgesamt sind dort 22.636 Unternehmen registriert und tätig. Interessanterweise hatte die Regierung der Provinz Guangdong vor kurzem eine auf Blockketten basierende Finanzierungsplattform ins Leben gerufen.

Als nächstes folgte Yunnan mit über 5.300 Blockkettenfirmen, gefolgt von Guangxi mit über 5.000 registrierten und operierenden Firmen.

Bemerkenswert ist, dass erst 2018 die Zahlen der Blockkettenplattformen im Land wieder an Fahrt gewannen.

Laut der Grafik von LongHash wurden im Jahr 2018 19.073 Unternehmen mit Blockkettenantrieb gegründet. Trotz der Unterstützung des chinesischen Präsidenten Xi Jinping durch die Blockkette sank die Zahl im Jahr 2019 auf 14.013. Im Jahr 2020 haben über 700 Blockkettenunternehmen ihre Tätigkeit aufgenommen.

Außerdem wurde Baidu, das chinesische Google-Äquivalent, zu einer der ersten großen Technologieplattformen, die ihr öffentliches Betablockketten-Netzwerk einführte. Der chinesische Internet-Riese hat laut Bitcoin Code eine offene Netzwerk-Blockkette namens „Xuperchain“ eingeführt, um kleinen und mittleren Unternehmen die Möglichkeit zu geben, ihre eigenen dezentralen Apps [DApps] herauszugeben.

Alibabas Ant Financial, früher bekannt als Alipay, hatte bereits zuvor Pläne zur Enthüllung seines Konsortium-Blockkettennetzwerks um Februar dieses Jahres herum bekannt gegeben.

Vor kurzem enthüllte das dem Ministerium für Industrie und Informationstechnologie unterstellte Blockchain-Forschungsinstitut des Center for Information and Industry Development [CID], dass es im Dezember 33.000 registrierte Blockchain-Firmen gab. Davon sind 57% der Unternehmen blockkettenzentrierte Startups, 23% Internetunternehmen mit Blockkettenprojekten und 12% Finanzinstitute mit Blockkettengeschäft.
