NEW YORK, Sept. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Ideanomics (Seven Stars Cloud Group, Inc.) (NASDAQ: SSC) ("Ideanomics" or the "Company"), a leading global fintech and asset digitization services company focused on digital asset production and distribution, has today announced its agreement to acquire the secure communications and information platform FinTalk (http://fintalk.com/).
FinTalk serves two critical business use cases. First, FinTalk will provide integrated B2B financial technology communications and AI-enabled financial information services and financial data analytics. One of the first business implementations of FinTalk will be in support of Ideanomics' recent joint venture with Asia Times. Tying well into Ideanomics' strategy, FinTalk's integration into Asia Times will enable the English-language, pan-Asia news platform to deploy a strong suite of financial technology services and enable the building of a financial institutional community.
Second, FinTalk will support a number of B2C business use cases providing both secure messaging and consumer financial services to a wide scale retail user base. FinTalk's consumer-facing technology will provide valuable curated financial information, access to digital loyalty products, and consumer financial services, which will include the ability to access digital asset investment products and connect with an investor and financial advisor community.
Currently in active Beta, FinTalk provides a secure channel for critical services in financial markets that are currently not available through popular social platforms, including "burn after reading" text and media messaging, video conferencing, subscription-based information services, and consulting services channels.
A critical component of the FinTalk solution is that it will work in parallel with a secure enterprise blockchain network. All messaging is end-to-end encrypted and built on an open architecture. FinTalk is able to expand the scale of services and tools available on its platform to further appeal to its audience of investors and financial services professionals. FinTalk's active Beta is currently available on iOS at Apple's App Store, and will soon be available on Android, for use on mobile devices.
Each FinTalk deployment will be integrated into a secure enterprise blockchain network. Every corporation that subscribes to FinTalk will receive their own deployment as a node, which will strengthen the larger blockchain network.
Ideanomics Chairman and Co-CEO, Bruno Wu, "FinTalk is a symbiotic addition to the Ideanomics family, as it will enable next-generation communication, collaboration, information consumption, and consulting outreach interactivity for the financial services community in the digital economy. FinTalk's innovative platform and forward-thinking service delivery is aligned with Ideanomics' objectives of empowering and enabling blockchain-based asset digitization, and it will serve as a primary channel for easy-to-use, secure, information exchange and decision-making between investors and financial services professionals. We are extremely excited to have them onboard as an integral part of Ideanomics fintech family, which will complement our joint venture with Asia times as well as enable us to meaningfully penetrate retail-based consumer financial services and product distribution."
