Driving Inclusion Through Compliance

Sep 9, 2020

Webinar

Thanks to anchors, Stellar-built services and apps can provide borderless access to financial infrastructure. However, this free-flow movement of money on the Stellar Network does not relieve businesses from their compliance obligations to guard against fraud, money-laundering, and terrorist financing. In the traditional banking system, the approach to compliance has led to a culture of de-risking and, in turn, financial exclusion. FinClusive offers anchors in the Stellar ecosystem a compliance solution that prioritizes financial inclusion, connects them to the US banking sector, and enables a comprehensive toolkit to meet required financial crimes compliance requirements.Join this webinar to learn more about how FinClusive’s work with anchors in the Stellar ecosystem meets compliance obligations while adhering to the principle of inclusion. FinClusive and SDF share a common goal to create greater access to the global financial infrastructure through compliant and secure means. Together, FinClusive and the Stellar ecosystem provide a comprehensive compliance layer and accessible digital payments rail. We’ll also leave time to take questions from attendees.

Continued discussion: Creating a Stellar Ecosystem Standard for Send / Receive Transactions

Apr 30, 2020

Round Table Discussion

Tune in to as we continue hashing out a Stellar Ecosystem Standard for Send / Receive Transactions! (click 'Learn More' to watch the previous discussion)If you want to read up to prepare, check out the discussion on Github.The gist: right now, there's a widely used ecosystem standard for Deposit / Withdrawal transactions that Stellar anchors and wallets implement to allow users to obtain and redeem Stellar-network tokens in exchange for fiat currencies using their interface of choice.However, many traditional remittance and business-to-business payments require a different kind of interaction: money moves from a sender's bank account to a recipient's, or from cash on the counter to cash out the door. These Send / Receive transactions skip the deposit and withdrawal steps entirely, and by doing so, present their own set of opportunities and challenges. Currently, there's no standard way to execute them on Stellar; the goal of this experiment is to start to hammer one out live and in public.Over the course of an hour, listen as representatives from Cowrie, Tempo, Satoshipay, FinClusive and the Stellar Development Foundation try to figure out the best way to implement a solution. There's a live Q&A at the end, so bring your best questions!Tune in Thursday 4/30 at 11:30 AM ET / 8:30 AM PT
