You can be sure they see Blockchain as a way to increase margin through pricing rather than just all this much vaunted efficiency stuff. Also I'm bloody sure this system won't be any less opaque regards delivery of fuel from well to home.

The BTL™ Interbit™ Blockchain Platform to Drive Next Phase of Energy Trading Systems With Market Leading European Energy Firms Partager 1 Print January 22, 2018 09:20 ET | Source: BTL Group Ltd. VANCOUVER, British Columbia and LONDON, Jan. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BTL GROUP LTD. (TSX Venture:BTL) (“BTL” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide further information on the next phase of its previously announced European energy trading project, under which four oil and gas supermajors and five leading energy traders including Eni Trading & Shipping, Total, Gazprom Marketing & Trading Limited, Mercuria, Vattenfall, Petroineos and Freepoint, propose to participate in using BTL’s Interbit blockchain platform to deliver gas trading reconciliation through to settlement and delivery of trades. This enterprise solution is being called OneOffice and is a revenue generating project for BTL. OneOffice - this second phase of BTL’s European energy project - follows the successful completion of the phase one pilot (see the Company’s press release dated June 5, 2017) which demonstrated the Interbit platform’s delivery of back office cost saving via smart contracts that automate trade reconciliation processes. In this second phase, BTL will work with the participants to build the OneOffice application to deliver cost savings across the trade life cycle. Interbit, as a next generation blockchain platform, has the capacity to operate and interconnect many thousands of blockchains per server, in a secure, private and scalable manner and moreover is designed for ease of use. See the Company’s October 17, 2017 press release for more information about Interbit’s capabilities and the patents filed in connection therewith. Francesco Romeo, Eni Trading & Shipping ICT Vice President, said, “Following our experience during the European energy pilot, we look forward to expanding the scope to enable straight through processing through the whole settlement process as well as bringing wider participation from the industry.” “Total has been trading gas and power since 2000. At the moment, we hear a lot about blockchain and how this technology could transform the trading processes. If successful, this initiative with BTL could help us to reduce the risks of human errors and to increase the speed in the reconciliation process of transactions with our fellow counterparts,” said Philippe Chauvain, Vice President Risk Control and IT – Total Gas & Power Limited. Catherine Newman, General Manager Global IT & Delivery, Gazprom Marketing & Trading Limited, said, “Blockchain could provide cross-industry opportunities to improve the speed, security and efficiency of transactions with Gazprom Marketing & Trading Limited’s counterparties at the forefront of technological developments in commodity trading. These opportunities can only be realised by working collaboratively with other commodity market participants. Although it is early stages yet, the POC with BTL represents an exciting and potentially disruptive prospect in the near future.” “Blockchain has great potential to increase automation and efficiency of our trading operation. Back office processes for confirmation, settlement and invoicing are ideal use cases for this emerging technology. We expect significant improvements in these processes by utilising BTL’s OneOffice,” said Frank van Doorn, acting Head of Trading, Vattenfall. “Phase two extends from trade reconciliation to settlement using our Interbit application for the natural gas trade life cycle. We are delighted to be working with some of the largest and most innovative companies in the energy sector, bringing together like-minded firms that see the potential of BTL’s industry agnostic blockchain technology in reducing risks, costs and providing better protection against cyber threats,” said Dominic McCann, BTL’s CEO. “The launch of the OneOffice project is a significant achievement for BTL as we move closer towards introducing the Interbit platform across multiple industries later this calendar quarter.” Recent Annual General Meeting The Company is also pleased to announce that all resolutions presented before the Company’s shareholders at its Annual and Special Meeting on January 9, 2018, received requisite approvals by shareholders of the Company. Elected as directors of the Company were Brian Hinchcliffe, John Thomson, Dominic McCann and Guy Halford-Thompson. Should the Board of Directors decide to take further action in connection with the proposed name change of the Company as approved by shareholders, it will announce such actions at the applicable times.

Thursday 18 January 2018 3:54pm Shell just made its first investment in blockchain with UK startup Applied Blockchain Share Lynsey Barber I'm City A.M.'s award-winning technology editor, covering everything from happen [..] Show more Follow Lynsey F1 Grand Prix Of Australia The blockchain race is on for many businesses (Source: Getty) Shell has made its first investment in blockchain, the technology eliciting interest around the world because it underpins bitcoin, but which has far wider applications. The oil giant has taken a minority stake in London startup Applied Blockchain to help it explore how the technology might be applied to its business. The value of the investment has not been disclosed but was made alongside Calibrate Partners, a fintech investment firm. Read more: A Wikipedia co-founder wants to put knowledge on the blockchain Applied Blockchain is based in the Canary Wharf-based Level39 fintech accelerator and is developing distributed ledger and smart contracts technology. It is already working with Sita, a telecoms company for the world's biggest airlines, to create a distributed drone registry and fellow fintech startup Babb to build a bank on the blockchain. It's not the first time Shell has experimented with blockchain, partnering with rival BP and others in the oil industry to create a blockchain energy trading platform. "Blockchain applications have huge potential to shake up how we do things in the energy industry from streamlining process, to simplifying how we work with our suppliers and serve our customers," said Shell chief technology officer for IT Johan Krebbers. Read more: Brussels promises "soft touch" blockchain regulation "Investing in Applied Blockchain is part of our commitment to use digitalisation to create value in our core business and develop new business models.” According to analysts at Deloitte, the application of blockchain in the oil and gas industry "presents a particular compelling opportunity". It identified cross-border payments, record management, supply chain management and smart contracts as potential applications. "A secure system that mitigates risk , increases transparency, provides an audit trail, and speeds up transactions at a significantly reduced cost may be appealing to oil and gas companies," analysts said.

Normandy region to get its own as-yet-unnamed currency Pxhere / CC0 Public Domain Normandy is to have its own currency, with name options so far including “Rollon”, “Drakkar”;, “Normand”;, and “Viking” Normandy is to have its own currency, which will operate in five departments, and be accepted alongside the Euro in shops and local establishments that join the scheme. The as-yet-unnamed currency - name options so far include “Rollon”, “Drakkar”;, “Normand”;, and “Viking” - is expected to be introduced before the end of March this year, and will be accessible through a smartphone app allowing shoppers to pay in participating establishments, explains newspaper Le Figaro today. It will be an option in five departments: Calvados, Eure, Manche, Orne and Seine-Maritime. The idea is not to replace the Euro, but to stimulate the region’s economy and incentivise people to shop locally. It will be managed by currency association Monnaie Normande, which will take charge of the circulation and maintenance. The currency will only work in Normandy itself, and will not have any value in terms of exchange, use elsewhere, or any significant inflation or increase in worth. This means that inhabitants will not be able to exchange their Normandy money for Euros or other currencies, and there will be little point in saving much in your smartphone account, as the money’s value will not increase with time. The introduction of a regional currency has been a long-held ambition of Normandy president, Hervé Morin. In a statement, he said: “This is a way to value the Normandy culture and to strengthen links between individuals and businesses in the region.” It is thought that some shops might pay a proportion of workers’ wages in the new money, and that local establishments such as public swimming pools could also use it for entrance tickets. The region has allocated €400,000 to the project ahead of its introduction, and a partner bank will offer €100,000 to guarantee the value of the currency, explained Gérard Heit, president of Monnaie Normande. There are around 40 local currencies in France but Normandy is the first area in the country to offer an official separate money for the entire region. Yet, the “eusko” in Pays Basque appears to be thriving. As Le Figaro explains, it was created in 2013, and there are now 750,000 euskos in circulation. Last year, a digital eusko card was introduced, and over 750 shops and businesses - along with €300,000 inhabitants - are now said to use the currency.

Thanks, I was interested in the Asia focus on crypto, especially given todays news, so I think you covered it. I've just posted several long posts over on the xrp thread for anyone interested in my experience in crypto (Https://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=42117121). I won't cross post it as there is quite a lot, covering my experience of buying/selling, getting my cash back and opinions etc.

A correction..........or the beginning of the end??? "Bitcoin tumbles as South Korea plans trading ban. Justice ministry prepares bill as clampdown on cryptocurrencies gathers pace. Bitcoin dives 14% as South Korea prepares cryptocurrency ban, South Korea raids major cryptocurrency exchanges, Chinese regulators move to close bitcoin mines. Ethereum though is still up in the clouds. I am still none the wiser!

"JPMorgan Chase Chairman & CEO Jamie Dimon said Tuesday he regrets past comments in which he called Bitcoin a fraud at a September banking conference. At the time, Dimon said that he would fire JPMorgan traders if they traded in the crypto-currency. “The blockchain is real. You can have crypto yen and dollars and stuff like that. ICO's you have to look at individually”, Dimon said in an exclusive interview with FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo. “The bitcoin to me was always what the governments are gonna feel about bitcoin as it gets really big, and I just have a different opinion than other people. I'm not interested that much in the subject at all.”"
