This feature is an important factor in the new Acudeen platform as it allows both funders and sellers to securely share sensitive information with each other in order for them to validate and review past and current transactions before they proceed, strengthening credibility and decreasing the probability of fraud. The distributed registry also serves as reference for bidders to avoid conflict or confusion when attempting to purchase receivables. Acudeen will continue to work with the IBM team over the next few months up until its full network’s initial launch in the third quarter of 2019.

ACU to be Utilized in Acudeen’s Receivable Discounting Platform
Beginning this November 2018, the Acudeen Platform will formally implement the ACU Staking Mechanism which provides different fee reductions at different tiers, depending on the amount of ACU tokens held. The lowest possible amount to stake would be 10,000 ACU which gives a 10% fee reduction on up to $1,000,000 transaction volume per year and the highest is at 100,000,000 ACU with a 50% fee reduction and other exclusive benefits. Staking is also a good way to prevent fraudulent transactions as users are penalized if their actions are deemed to be so.
Progress has been quite steady after the Token Sale concluded in June of this year. Acudeen’s main business function has also since then expanded in the region under the Kyopay brand in Myanmar. The Acudeen team expects to fully develop the blockchain ecosystem (see image above) before its initial launch in 2019, beginning with the implementation of the staking system in November of this year.
