kevin. Triumphs with First Account-to-Account NFC iPhone Transaction

kevin.

New York, NY – In a groundbreaking event set to disrupt the in-store payment landscape, kevin., a pioneer in payment technology, has successfully conducted the first-ever account-to-account NFC transaction on an iPhone. Video of transaction: link In a financial world where convenience and security are paramount, kevin. has established a new pinnacle by executing the first non-Apple Pay account-to-account near-field communication (NFC) payment on an iPhone. This technological leap forward follows the European Commission’s pressure on Apple to democratize NFC access. It comes after years in which Apple's strict control over NFC technology in iOS devices had stifled third-party competition. Pavel Sokolovas, co-founder of kevin., articulates the magnitude of this moment: “Breaking through the final barriers of NFC payments on iOS devices represents a true watershed moment. We’re immensely proud to be the first to provide account-to-account transactions using Apple’s NFC, giving consumers the power to choose how they pay.” In January 2022, kevin. made waves by enabling this innovative payment method for Android users, a move lauded for its originality and drive towards an open payment ecosystem. Now, with regulatory changes in stride, kevin. swiftly attained authorization under Apple's NFC Entitlement Program and embarked on development in their controlled environment. Just six weeks following Apple's program launch, kevin. celebrated the successful execution of the experimental transaction in development mode, setting the stage for what could revolutionize Point of Sale (POS) interactions. Sokolovas outlined the technical journey: “We’ve been rigorously developing within Apple’s architectural framework. Our team worked tirelessly to integrate our kevin. technical solution within Apple host card emulation (HCE), including security standards, transaction validation and so much more to create a seamless experience allowing users transactions from within their banking or wallet apps.” The European Commission continues to monitor feedback from early developers like kevin. while anticipating the official commencement of broader NFC implementation. This scrutiny underscores the Commission's dedication to nurturing innovation and equitable competition in the mobile payment sphere. Looking ahead, the industry anticipates a surge in similar payment solutions following this initial success. kevin. has indeed set a dominant precedent, promising an open market where consumers are no longer limited by device-specific payment platforms — a fundamental reshaping of how transactions are conducted worldwide. kevin. is a visionary technology firm reshaping payment systems for tomorrow’s needs. From their global headquarters in Europe to the recent expansion into the bustling financial hub of Dubai, kevin.’s mission has been consistent: to offer reliable end-to-end technology and significant savings on transaction fees without changing the way people pay. The introduction of their multi-tenant, brand-agnostic payment acceptance network marks a significant shift for consumers and businesses alike, granting autonomy and value unimpeded by the constraints of legacy technology.

Meet VantagePoint, Inventor Of The World’s First AI-Powered Software For Independent Traders That Launched In 1991

Benzinga

By Faith Ashmore, Benzinga Artificial Intelligence (AI) is taking the world by storm, from healthcare to Big Tech and everything in between. According to data obtained by Finbold, the AI industry's estimated market size was $207.9 billion in 2023 and is expected to increase dramatically by 788.64% to reach $1.87 trillion by 2030. While AI is being integrated into society with great vigor today, unbeknownst to many, AI is not a new concept. With the recent attention on AI, many traders are looking for platforms that include AI – but one company has been using it all along. Lane Mendelsohn, president of VantagePoint, is here to explain how the company was one of the first to embrace AI in the 20th century and its journey along the way. Benzinga: It seems like AI is just now becoming popular and mainstream, but it's not new. Who first came up with AI and when was that? Lane Mendelsohn: Artificial intelligence was invented and created back in the 1950s at Carnegie Mellon. That's where my father went to college and in the 1960s [Lou Mendelsohn] had the opportunity to work with AI on the mainframes. He saw that it had capabilities, but at that time, he didn't have a real application for it. Fast forward to the 1980s, he had developed the first commercial trading software in the world that did historical backtesting and simulations, and he was in who's who in the financial world for that invention. Then in the late 1980s, my father began implementing AI to financial market forecasting and introduced to the world in 1991 the first-ever AI forecasting trading software for individual traders, and that was the introduction of VantagePoint. Benzinga: VantagePoint has been using and offering AI since 1991. How has it been able to stay at the forefront of this technology for so long? Lane Mendelsohn: It’s a matter of continuing to develop and refine the technology consistently. We’ve been forecasting the markets with AI for over 3 decades, so that’s a lot of historical data that’s all in the AI’s learning. We all know the markets are constantly changing and, honestly, AI and technology are constantly changing. For us to ensure that we're continuing to provide that cutting-edge technology, we have to stay vigilant. We must persist in further developing the technology and refining it. That's a commitment that we've made and continue to make. We forecast for over 2,300 stocks, ETFs, Futures, Forex Pairs, commodities, and cryptocurrencies every single day. Each one uses anywhere up to 90 input values to calculate daily predictive indicators. Each input uses up to seven values to be calculated. That makes up to 630 data points per market or 1,450,000 for all supported markets daily. But then you add in our forecasts for Options traders, and you’re looking at over 1 billion data points per day. That’s something no human could handle in a day, let alone years, and VantagePoint can handle it through the research, development, innovation, and training we’ve devoted to it over the years. Over the last ten years, we've invested over $10 million into research and development. And we’re never done. We continue to work on training and accuracy every day. That commitment to constant innovation gives VantagePoint traders a tremendous advantage in the markets. And our goal is to continue to provide that edge every trading day. Benzinga: What differentiates VantagePoint from the recent surge of AI for traders that have emerged in this market? Lane Mendelsohn: [VantagePoint has] three key elements – proven accuracy, longevity, and patents. No one else in this space has third-party verified accuracy up to 87.4%. No one has been around for 45 years as a company while providing AI for traders since 1991 like VantagePoint has. And lastly, no one has two proprietary U.S. patents on performing intermarket analysis using neural networks and calculating predictive technical indicators. [VantagePoint’s] neural network has three different parts to it. There's the input layer, hidden layer, and output layer. The input layer is ingesting all of the raw data it's fed; millions and millions of data points go in the hidden layer. The neural networks are made of individual nodes, these individual neurons that are built to simulate a human brain, but obviously much more powerful and can do a lot more. Each one of those neurons has its own specific role, its own specific function, in the neural network. Each one on its own is not capable of coming up with the answer, but what happens is they all have a very specific job that they're trained on, and they're trained to do one specific thing very well. And then the findings from each of those individual neurons and nodes are pushed to the output layer where they're reassembled together to give you the answer. In the case of market forecasting, the answer is, ‘Here’s what the price of Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA), Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) or Meta (NASDAQ: META) is going to do tomorrow.’ Benzinga: You mentioned two patents. Can you elaborate on those two U.S. patents VantagePoint holds in the AI domain and how they contribute to the software's forecasting reliability and proven accuracy? Lane Mendelsohn: Certainly. To start, each patent on their own stands on its own two legs. It’s when you have both combined that the unparalleled edge is found. One of those patents is for intermarket analysis and analyzing global market data. So, it's identifying for Nvidia stock, for example … It's going to look at the 30 most closely related markets that drive impact and influence the price of Nvidia. Now, if you want to know where Nvidia's going to go or any stock for that matter, you should look at what factors are driving and pushing that particular market. VantagePoint identifies what those individual markets are, and then through this proprietary process, we're weighing those, because it's not like every one of those 30 markets drives, impacts and influences Nvidia to the same degree. They're all weighted, and those weightings adjust over time. So, the patent identifies the markets, weighs them, and then uses that information for pattern recognition, forecasting what's going to happen next. The second patent takes traditional lagging indicators, for example Bollinger Bands, MACD, Stochastics, and so on, which only give you past data, and turns them into leading indicators. And that's the second patent, Calculating Predictive Technical Indicators. So, when you combine those two proprietary advancements together, that's what really stacks the odds in the favor of independent traders and they're now able to do something that on their own would've been humanly impossible. Benzinga: What advice do you have for traders who are considering adopting AI for their trading strategies? Lane Mendelsohn: You've got to do your due diligence. You've got to make sure the AI is doing something that makes sense for a trader, that it serves a purpose, that it’s doing something you couldn't have done on your own, and that it's consistently highly accurate. It needs to be proprietary AI that has gone through deep learning, specifically for predicting the markets and considering global market analysis. You don’t want some open-source code licensed from a new AI company with a pretty bow slapped on it. So far, VantagePoint is the only AI for traders I’m aware of that checks those must-have boxes. For traders and investors looking to get an edge in the markets, VantagePoint could be a solution with its long history, dual-patented technology, and a commitment to continuing innovation.

kevin.

Dans un événement révolutionnaire destiné à bouleverser le paysage des paiements en magasin, kevin., un pionnier de la technologie de paiement, a réussi la toute première transaction NFC de compte à compte sur un iPhone. Vidéo de la transaction: lien Dans un monde financier où la commodité et la sécurité sont de la plus haute importance, kevin. a établi un nouveau sommet en exécutant le premier paiement NFC de compte à compte non-Apple Pay sur un iPhone. Ce bond technologique fait suite à la pression exercée par la Commission européenne sur Apple pour démocratiser l'accès au NFC. Cela survient après des années durant lesquelles le contrôle strict d'Apple sur la technologie NFC dans les appareils iOS avait étouffé la concurrence de tiers. Pavel Sokolovas, co-fondateur de kevin., exprime l'ampleur de ce moment: « Briser les dernières barrières des paiements NFC sur les appareils iOS représente un véritable moment charnière. Nous sommes immensément fiers d'être les premiers à fournir des transactions de compte à compte en utilisant le NFC d'Apple, donnant aux consommateurs le pouvoir de choisir leur mode de paiement. » En janvier 2022, kevin. a fait sensation en activant cette méthode de paiement innovante pour les utilisateurs Android, démarche saluée pour son originalité et sa volonté vers un écosystème de paiement ouvert. Maintenant, avec les changements réglementaires en cours, kevin. a rapidement obtenu l'autorisation dans le cadre du programme d'entitlement NFC d'Apple et a commencé le développement dans leur environnement contrôlé. Juste six semaines après le lancement du programme d'Apple, kevin. célébrait l'exécution réussie de la transaction expérimentale en mode développement, préparant le terrain pour ce qui pourrait révolutionner les interactions aux points de vente (POS). Sokolovas a décrit le parcours technique: « Nous avons développé de manière rigoureuse dans le cadre architectural d'Apple. Notre équipe a travaillé sans relâche pour intégrer notre solution technique kevin. dans l'émulation de carte hôte (HCE) d'Apple, comprenant les normes de sécurité, la validation des transactions et bien plus encore pour créer une expérience transparente permettant aux utilisateurs des transactions à partir de leurs applications bancaires ou de portefeuille. » La Commission européenne continue de surveiller les retours des premiers développeurs comme kevin. tout en anticipant le démarrage officiel d'une mise en œuvre plus large du NFC. Cette surveillance souligne l'engagement de la Commission à favoriser l'innovation et la concurrence équitable dans le domaine des paiements mobiles. Le secteur anticipe une montée en flèche de solutions de paiement similaires à la suite de ce succès initial. kevin. a en effet établi un précédent dominant, promettant un marché ouvert où les consommateurs ne sont plus limités par des plateformes de paiement spécifiques aux dispositifs - une refonte fondamentale de la façon dont les transactions sont menées dans le monde entier. kevin. est une entreprise de technologie visionnaire qui redéfinit les systèmes de paiement pour répondre aux besoins de demain. De son siège mondial en Europe à son récent expansion dans le centre financier animé de Dubaï, la mission de kevin. a été constante: offrir une technologie de bout en bout fiable et des économies substantielles sur les frais de transaction sans changer la façon dont les gens paient. L'introduction de leur réseau d'acceptation de paiement multi-locataire et indépendant de la marque marque une évolution significative pour les consommateurs et les entreprises, accordant l'autonomie et la valeur sans les contraintes de la technologie héritée.
