Alprockz Partners with Swiss Banks to Issue a New Stablecoin Backed by Swiss Franc

The Swiss company Alprockz AG announced the development of a new financial and technical tool, powered by the Ethereum blockchain-based platform to provide financial services by issuing ROCKZ stable coin. The Alprockz platform will allow users to benefit from a stable coin used for fast and economic monetary transfer around the world. Among the key features will be the conversion of cryptocurrency into a reliable & stable funds at real time, along with opening up limitless opportunities for market makers to switch to a new base currency.

ROCKZ (RKZ) is the stablecoin, backed by a national currency – the Swiss franc (CHF), which will be issued at a ratio of 1:1. At the same time, the company-issuer ROCKZ AG will store 90% of its reserve funds in CHF banknotes in high-security Swiss bank storages. Another 10% will be placed in storage in various Swiss banks to ensure coin’s liquidity. This will give to the issuer credibility, and when it comes to Rockz holders – confidence that the digital asset is backed by fiat money.

Thus, ROCKZ eliminates the main shortcomings of the cryptocurrency industry and solves two major issues: forming a reliable bridge between digital assets and the traditional economy, by recording profits, while they remain in the crypto market. The main difference between ROCKZ and, for example, Tether is the absolute transparency of financial reserves. It reduces the risks of the counterparty’s default.

ROCKZ сryptocurrency is fully backed by Swiss franc and is compliant with national and international legislation following the cryptocurrency regulation. Alprockz AG is registered in Zug, owned by Swiss investors and is audited. Monitoring and confirmation of the fiat-backed concept of ROCKZ will be carried out monthly with the reports publication. A list of financial intermediaries and bank vaults providing stability to Rockz is available at any time.

ROCKZ AG will work with regulated trading counterparties, mainly based in Switzerland. ROCKZ holders have to pass the standard KYC process. Financial reserves that serve as ROCKZ provision can not be invested or used otherwise to generate additional income.

ROCKZ team, which includes large financiers and IT developers, expects that the new fintech service will be in demand in the following niches:

  • E-commerce. ROCKZ can be a convenient method of payment, along with payment services like PayPal and Webmoney in view of the stability of the underlying asset and low commissions within the network.
  • Investments. ROCKZ can be a store of value asset.
  • Money transfers. ROCKZ can become a reliable tool to facilitate cross-border transfers in view of low commissions and low volatility in the market of $ 65.7 billion (excluding corporate transfers).
  • Banking. Based on ROCKZ, you can create a large number of financial instruments: loans between platform users, bank deposits, etc.

ROCKZ stable coin backed by Swiss Franc – the most stable currency in the world should become a more attractive financial tool than its competitors – Tether, TrueUSD or Dai, all backed by the US dollar.

The ROCKZ monetization model, proposed by the developers, includes not only commission fees for the conversion of ROCKZ to fiat, but also the issuance of partner licenses to market makers, which turns the platform into a full-fledged financial service, in contrast to competing financial intermediaries.

As a result, ROCKZ receives not only financial stability based on the Swiss franc, but also protection from exchange rate manipulation. This fact can make it the most reliable and predictable cryptocurrency.

Alprockz AG will launch an ICO in Q4 2018 to develop further the company and the platform. The platform which has been built to develop ROCKZ will be able to host further financial products in the future. The company plans to add other stable coins backed by EUR and KRW in 2019.

As a service provider Swisscom (listed on the Swiss Exchange, ticker: SCMN), will provide the digital identification services of ROCKZ users. This will allow ROCKZ AG to conform to strong Swiss regulations. Furthermore, Swisscom’s daughter company Swisscom Blockchain AG supports as the technical provider of the tokenization. It provides the infrastructure to onboard the participants in the token sale (launchpad, compliance process), the smart contract and the infrastructure to issue the token.

As the founder of Alprockz Alexey Borichev stated:

“The reason for choosing a Swiss provider is in the regulatory aspects, which we must respect, as a corporation registered in Switzerland and launching a token sale.”

    Any asset backed stablecoin (such as described above) is essentially a coupon representing the currency behind it. What we need is a non-collateralized soft peg. Something like BitBay’s dynamic peg, where the currency’s value is determined by votes of its users.

The GateHub hack that took place earlier this month resulted in the exchange losing nearly 23 million XRP worth approximately $9 million. However, Whale Alert, a tracker of large crypto transactions, alerted the community of these stolen funds being moved to various different exchanges.

One of these exchanges was identified to be Bitfinex, which received 400,025 XRP on June 16 at 10:57:22 UTC. The sender’s address was r4hyDYXv7iV3oCahxQzqYYfgxwyBx3AyMN and was identified to be from the GateHub hack 2019. The receiver’s address was identified to be Bitfinex’s- r9o9MerrS7d2GAEs6JPj4v4JcvZAJNtLUY. The hash rate of the transaction was 21124F7818A2903E9750456D603CC9AACC9DBE6CE2EF0AA191C734339B4CA682 and the transaction details were as follows:

Another transaction was noted to take place to the Bitfinex wallet address where 100,000 XRP was transferred from another identified GateHub hack address. The identified Bitfinex’s wallet address was rDcz7P9YMpffLKhRBovTzhUr3wKtk3y9q7. This wallet address was quick to transfer the funds immediately to another exchange, OKEx. OKEx previously received 3,000 XRP from the stolen funds to an identified OKEx address- rUzWJkXyEtT8ekSSxkBYPqCvHpngcy6Fks. The hash rate of the transaction was noted to be BE97F68A20E996A2E1A37228DCBD45A1F26E8E2B3A842E9FCFFF7721157C1C37 and following were the transaction details:

The stolen funds were moved to another prominent exchange, Binance, and CZ was swift to inform Whale Alert that he would look into it. However, the crypto users did not find any relief about these funds going to other exchanges as the exchanges did not respond to the large transactions.
