Vancouver, BC – CUV Ventures Corp. (TSX-V: CUV) (the “Company”) Vancouver, BC – (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the wholly owned subsidiary, RevoluPAY® S.L., received official correspondence, from the executive commission of the Central Bank, dated 21 December 2018 but, delivered to RevoluPAY® Headquarters on January 4th 2019, granting temporary exemption to RevoluPAY®, pending final license approval, to begin full financial operations up-to a maximum monthly sum of 3 Million Euros (approx. 4,583,000 $CA), under the auspices of article 14 of law decree 19/2018, 23 November 2018. The company believes that this subsequent event and, interim consent, bodes well for the previously submitted proprietary banking license application, currently under review by the central bank since November 22, 2018, and, subject to a statutory 90-day approval. The cited consent came shortly after the successful compliance by RevoluPAY® of Central Bank Two-factor Authentication, as explained to shareholders on December 20th, 2018. As per the company’s news release dated October 1st, 2018, the E-Wallet linked, RevoluPAY® Prepaid Visa Card, has received final homologation from Visa Inc., on the 4th of January 2019.
RevoluPAY® Banking License - Electronic Money Institution
As shareholders are aware, the RevoluPAY® iOS and Android app currently operate under an indefinite third-party banking license. This license is currently utilized for all user accounts, payment receipts, processing and, other banking activities, for which the proprietary RevoluPAY® app is capable. However, the company has pursued its own Electronic Money Institution banking license since June 2018. First retaining prestigious law firm Hogan Lovells and, then subsequent encounters with central bank officials. Culminating in RevoluPAY® submitting the formal petition for a proprietary PSD2 Electronic Money Institution banking license on November 22nd, 2018. It is coincidental that the PSD2 legislation was ultimately introduced into law one day after, on 23rd November, meaning that RevoluPAY®, if approved, will obtain the latest and, most advantageous variant of the said license. Today’s advent, obtaining the, now conceded, interim exemption from the Central Bank, paves the way for RevoluPAY® to become a fully licensed Electronic Money banking Institution, a prestigious and economically favorable outcome for shareholders, which will allow RevoluPAY® to act autonomously in the following capacities:
- Operating a payment account and enabling cash to be placed on and, withdrawn, from a payment account
- Executing payment transactions
- Issuing payment instruments or acquiring payment transactions
- Money remittance
- Payment initiation services
- Account information services
- Proprietary SEPA and Swift Codes
RevoluPAY® e-Wallet Linked Prepaid Visa card
The RevoluPAY® physical international visa card permits withdrawals from any ATM that accepts Visa worldwide, allied to POS payment at any location that accepts Visa. This functionality will give RevoluPAY® app users an added layer of financial autonomy, in those locations where NFC enabled POS devices and ATMs, for which RevoluPAY is already enabled, are not yet operational. The card manufacturer has informed the company that the first batch of cards should be available within 4 to 5 weeks.
