Anthony  and the Decentral team are eager to support projects with experienced entrepreneurs delivering blockchain innovation, like  PayPie. Anthony said that “by introducing the world’s first Ethereum-powered credit risk assessment based on decentralized accounting, PayPie hopes to bring ultimate trust and transparency to the financial market. I’m a believer in the power of decentralized technologies like PayPie to add huge value to existing auditing markets and practices. Supporting PayPie’s team in a key advisory role and by integrating the PayPie token into Jaxx are the ways I’m most eager to pitch in.”

The PayPie decentralized, blockchain-based platform was built to make the financial information on businesses more accurate and transparent, allowing a better picture of a company’s financial health for credit risk assessment. Anthony continued, “PayPie leverages blockchain to enable live financial audits, speed up credit approvals, and improve the overall credit scoring processes for businesses. It’s a huge improvement in efficiency for lenders, auditors, accountants, and other financial institutions.”

“Often a company’s financial situation is inaccurate, due to a lack of information and the fact that this information is usually outdated”, said PayPie CEO, serial entrepreneur, and member of the Forbes Technology Council, Nick Chandi. “By harnessing technology – blockchain in particular – we can avoid these issues and make the system fairer both for the businesses themselves, as well as those who wish to access the financial information.

PayPie aims to bring ultimate trust and transparency to the financial markets by introducing the world’s first credit risk assessment based on blockchain accounting.

PayPie is a faster, safer, and smart contract-powered credit scoring and lending platform for banks, lenders, and invoice factoring companies. PayPie solves the problems of fraud and inconsistencies which exist in isolated accounting systems by allowing for real-time audit and analysis of financial statements on the blockchain. This analysis will be done using a decentralized single ledger approach and will consider the all-time historical accounting information of participating businesses to safeguard and transform the way credit risk is assessed by lenders, investors, and other financial institutions. All inputs will be bound to the blockchain in a triple entry accounting structure, which will secure the entire transaction-checking process generating reliable and unbiased data.

Press Release – Anthony Di Iorio Invests in Enigma

Toronto, Ontario – 11th September 2017.

Anthony Di Iorio Engages with Enigma as an Investor

Enigma is creating a decentralized, open, secure data marketplace that allows people, companies and organizations to contribute and consume data. Anthony Di Iorio is co-founder of Ethereum & the CEO of the Jaxx blockchain interface.

Speaking about Anthony Di Iorio, Can Kisagun, co-founder said,

As we embark on this ambitious journey to create the data marketplace for the web, we are thrilled to be partnering with Anthony Di Iorio from Jaxx | Decentral. Given its simplicity and ease of use, Jaxx will be instrumental in getting ENG tokens to the masses.

Speaking about Enigma, Anthony Di Iorio said,

The market surrounding crypto-assets is expanding and so should the investment tools and underlying financial infrastructure. The Catalyst Platform is well timed – it’s a platform that provides the tools and data necessary to quickly build your own crypto hedge-fund. Catalyst is the first application to make use of the Enigma decentralized data marketplace protocol.

I’m excited to make this investment & to join Enigma group contributing to the project – the work to enable developers to build, test, and execute micro crypto-funds is particularly exciting as it pushes the decentral economy forward. I am looking forward to exploring potential synergies between Enigma and Jaxx –  Guy, Can, & their team at Enigma have my support!

The key new utility Enigma brings to the table is the ability to run computations on data, without having access to the raw data itself. For example, a group of people can provide access to their salary, and together compute the average wage of the group. Each participant learns their relative position in the group, but learns nothing about other members’ salaries. It should be made clear that this is only a motivating example. In practice, any program can be securely evaluated while maintaining the inputs a secret.

Today, sharing data is an irreversible process; once it is sent, there is no way to take it back or limit how it is used. Allowing access to data for secure computations is reversible and controllable, since no one but the original data owners ever see the raw data. This presents a fundamental change in current approaches to data analysis.
