MEDSiS Announces Launch of "Maxwell" Stablecoin into the United States Market After Signing Agreement with US Blockchain Payments Company, Ternio
MIAMI, Aug. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- MEDSiS International announced today a new strategic partnership that would bring their "Maxwell" stablecoin into the US and European markets. This new partnership with Ternio, a US based Blockchain and payments company, would add a third (and eventual fourth) currency to the Maxwell suite and close the loop on their Phase 1 planning of bringing in a major currency as a backstop. This comes on the heels of MEDSiS' announcements with WTIA, Argentina, and Brazil for the Q3 and Q4 2019 plans for Maxwell. "Though we've been focused on Argentina and Brazil, our goal was always to have a partnership with the US and launch with the dollar. Ternio is the partner we've been searching for," comments Joshua Dax Cabrera, CEO of MEDSiS. The agreement between MEDSiS and Ternio will allow customers to download MEDSiS' mobile wallet, "Control," and register for either a virtual or physical payment card within the continental US. Though this is not uncommon in the marketplace, Ternio's experience with their BlockCard product and MEDSiS' addition of the Maxwell and tens of millions of foreign customers under contract create an ecosystem unlike anything available today. What is more, with Ternio's upcoming entrance into the EU/EEA, MEDSiS will soon be available to customers in more than 34 countries globally. "This is only Phase 1. We always knew that we had to triangulate and add three currencies, but we already have several more in negotiations, opening up Africa and the Middle East in the next few months." - Joshua Dax Cabrera, CEO of MEDSiS By achieving KYC (know your customer) compliance and utilizing blockchain ID on the platform, customers in all emerging markets will be able to use blockchain to store values either in other currencies, or in the Maxwell Stablecoin. This will give unlimited possibilities to the more than 25 million customers currently scheduled to be onboarded over the coming months. "We have worked hard to position ourselves to become the best global tool for true financial inclusion for individuals, companies, unions, and governments. This gives access to useful and affordable financial products [transactions, payments, savings, credit, and insurance] that meet all needs," comments Demetrio Pablo Daniel Clua del Rivero, SVP Business Dev./Dir. LATAM of MEDSiS. Ternio's involvement is crucial in MEDSiS' plans, as their experience in having a true "CryptoCard" have allowed them to spend cryptocurrencies direct into any merchant transaction. Maxwell will be the latest currency available for the same such benefit. Building on this, customers will be able to link their crypto-wallet, beginning with Maxwell, and spend it as they would spend any other currency around the world. "We're very excited to be working with MEDSiS and their upcoming plans related to the Maxwell stablecoin. The BlockCard platform will allow customers to spend it anywhere major credit cards are accepted." - Daniel Gouldman, CEO of Ternio The partnership with Ternio marks the close of Phase 1, and the upcoming move into 31 EEA (European Economic Area) countries consisting of EU and EFTA states. As MEDSiS begins Phase 2, it will fund and bring to scale their existing contracts in the western hemisphere. With Maxwell and its mobile wallet, Control, available in more than 34 markets starting in 2020, this agreement with Ternio marks the beginning of redefining the banking world, one country at a time.

Your Second Chance at a First Kiss®
Aug. 20, 2019 16:34 UTC Last Year’s Apple Sellout Returns to Tempt Your Taste Buds, Available Nationally as Rave® MINNEAPOLIS & SAINT PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- In 2018, Minnesota apple lovers fell in love with First Kiss®, the newest apple variety from the University of Minnesota’s (UMN) apple breeding program. This year there will be even more chances to experience the new Honeycrisp progeny, which is also known as Rave®, both in Minnesota and beyond. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20190820005628/en/ The University of Minnesota’s latest apple release MN55 will be popping up in more locations this year as both First Kiss and Rave, the latter being the apple's brand name when grown outside MN. (Photo: Business Wire) First Kiss made a splash during its debut at last year’s Minnesota State Fair, selling out in just a few days. While availability in 2019 will still be limited, more orchards will have trees that are mature enough to bear fruit. “With new apples that hit the market, every year is bigger than the one before as more and more trees come into production,” explains Jim Luby, a professor and fruit breeder in the UMN’s Department of Horticultural Science, part of the College of Food, Agriculture and Natural Resource Sciences. “More Minnesota growers have become licensed to grow First Kiss over the last year so we will continue to see more and more First Kiss hitting the market in the coming years.” While First Kiss will primarily be for sale directly at licensed orchards throughout the state, consumers will also see more making their way into local farmers markets, grocery chains, and, of course, the Minnesota State Fair including the Minnesota Apple booth in the Ag/Hort building. A list of licensed Minnesota orchards is available at www.mnhardy.umn.edu but consumers should be sure to call in advance to check on availability, as harvest dates vary across the state and some growers’ trees are too new to bear much fruit. Something to Rave About Apple lovers both in Minnesota and across the US should also be on the lookout for Rave, the brand name for the MN55 apple cultivar when grown by national licensee Stemilt Growers. Since its release in 2017, Stemilt has carried out multiple guerilla marketing efforts to share Rave with consumers across the country. This year, the company plans to build on those efforts by taking Rave on a multi-state road trip from August 20 through Labor Day that will kick off right here in Rave’s “home” state. “Rave is the social apple, the one that shoppers will try and rave about,” said Brianna Shales, Communications Manager at Stemilt. “Our consumer marketing work focuses on delighting and sharing. We’re excited about hitting the road with Rave, and will also be working closely with retail partners to promote Rave in a variety of ways in the stores and cities they will feature this apple in.” Test Your Taste Buds at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in Chanhassen will also join in on the fun with an apple themed family tree challenge on Saturday and Sunday afternoons in October and November. Arboretum visitors can stop by the Learning Center to sample and compare a top Minnesota variety with one of its parent varieties, hear stories about UMN developed apple varieties, and print out an apple postcard. And don’t forget to stop by the Arboretum Apple House in September to take home some of your favorite varieties and apple themed gifts—they expect the Apple House to open August 28. More information about these and other Arboretum events is available at www.arboretum.umn.edu About First Kiss and Rave Produced from the newly released MN55 apple tree cultivar developed by the University of Minnesota, First Kiss® is a brand reserved exclusively for a premium quality apple fruit produced by Minnesota growers. Apples grown out-of-state are part of an exclusive license agreement with Stemilt Growers Co. in Wenatchee, WA and are marketed as Rave®. Rave® / First Kiss® (MN55 cultivar) are registered trademarks of the University of Minnesota.
