Tallin, Estonia, November 16, 2017. NAC Foundation, LLC – the company behind new digital currency AML BitCoin and patent-pending anti-money laundering and know-your-customer technologies, has announced negotiations with Slovenian and Estonian officials to probe how these countries could utilize AML BitCoin’s patent-pending digital blockchain platform.
Led by the CEO of the NAC Foundation Marcus Andrade, the meetings were held at the time of the EU Digital Summit in Tallinn, Estonia. Andrade briefed numerous Estonian legislators; including a key parliamentarian digital commerce leader Kalle Palling, on strong international governmental interest in partnering with AML BitCoin who see the project as a solution to stability and security problems threatening the Bitcoin cryptocurrency. Andrade also presented the project to the Estonian e-Residency team, which is exploring a launch of its own digital currency, the ESTcoin.
“Because of its AML/KYC (anti-money laundering/know your customer) features, AML BitCoin is the digital currency that is most able to engage in mainstream commerce, taking its place among traditional payment options,” said Andrade.
Government Leaders Express Strong Interest in AML BitCoin
Marek Pajussar from the Estonian Financial Supervision Authority expressed strong interest in AML BitCoin’s technological advances with its AML and KYC protocols and procedures.
In Slovenia, Andrade briefed the Slovenian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Administration Boris Koprivnikar. As the Minister of Public Administration, Mr. Koprivnikar’s mission is to ensure efficient and forward-looking support for Slovenian citizen, industry and government initiatives. He showed particular interest in understanding how the identification segment of the AML BitCoin platform could be used on a wider scale.
Mr. Andrade also met with key representatives of the Slovenian National Assembly. Deputy Matej Tonin, one of the representatives pushing for cybersecurity regulation, queried Andrade on how other governments are approaching regulating blockchain and digital currencies.
Founder hopes Governments will Adopt AML BitCoin
Andrade hopes that Slovenia and Estonia – the European Union’s technology leaders – will soon join other governments around the world partnering with AML BitCoin to promote the use of digital currency with their stable and secure AML BitCoin platform.
“AML BitCoin’s white label platform is unique,” Andrade said. “It relies on complex verification methods, such as patent-pending biometric digital identification, that other digital currencies and financial technology platforms do not have and have not yet developed.”
“This makes the AML BitCoin platform ideal for use by governments wanting to make their services digital, but also wanting to protect user identity,” Andrade pointed out.
“A number of nations have recently moved against anonymous digital currency, such as Bitcoin, for fear that their anonymity promotes entry by criminal and terrorist elements into otherwise protected financial systems,” Andrade noted. “In the United States, members of Congress are considering legislation barring the use by U.S. merchants of anonymous, non-AML compliant cryptocurrencies.”
AML BitCoin is the world’s only digital currency with a patent-pending biometric digital identity system tied to the blockchain, enabling strict adherence to all bank security provisions including AML (anti-money laundering) and KYC (know your customer) protections.
