Worldcore is a unique new player in fintech, allowing customers access to international banking, e-currencies, and country-to-country transfers regardless of their country of origin.  Worldcore users can also withdraw Euros or US dollars to any bank accounts or Visa and MasterCard debit cards with minimal fees. Worldcore's wide array of options has already appealed to many international businesspeople, emigrants, and travelers who rely on or send remittance payments across borders. 

As a currency for the global internet, bitcoin will give Worldcore's multinational customers access to banking services without the need for credit cards, banking infrastructure, or currency exchanges.

Bitcoin also meets Worldcore's rigorous security standards. The company, which recently introduced the EU's first voice biometric security system, chose bitcoin in part because it limits the potential for payment fraud and chargebacks.

"Our goal is to open up the global marketplace to businesses and consumers who aren't served by legacy banking and are looking for cost-effective, innovative payment products," said Worldcore's CEO Alex Nasonov. "Bitcoin will allow us to reach more people with that mission. With BitPay as our new partner, it’s ‘Easier than you think.’"

"Worldcore is leading the way in providing comprehensive banking services for the digital economy," said BitPay EMEA General Manager Marcel Roelants. "We think bitcoin can become the preferred method for international top-up payments, and we are excited to see how Worldcore's customers will respond to this new payment option."

Perfectus Aluminum Inc. Responds to Trade Group19.10.2017 13:00Pressemelding

ONTARIO, Calif., Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Perfectus Aluminum Inc. has issued the following: On October 12, 2017 the Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC), an industry group representing largely American aluminum extruders, posted to its blog a false narrative regarding a suit to which Perfectus Aluminum Inc. is a related party. The government is not "seeking unpaid duties from Perfectus for goods brought into the country." Rather, the government is attempting to use a 2017 Department of Commerce determination to assess retroactive antidumping duties on goods imported as early as 2011. It is discouraging that AEC would tout such an obviously egregious government overstep as a "victory" to their members and the industry: were it one of AEC's own members facing such an obvious violation of fair play and due process, it would rightfully argue that government overreach is a threat to manufacturers everywhere. In addition to the hypocrisy of the AEC's promotion of this case, its s
