As disclosed earlier, CEZA awarded its first FTSOVC license to Global Millennial Quickpay (GMQ) on July 10, making GMQ its “pioneer” FTSOVC licensee. The second and third licenses were awarded to Ultra Precise Investments Ltd. of Bangkok, Thailand, and Liannet Technology Ltd., consecutively.

CEZA has been promoting its CSEZFP as a financial technology (fintech) hub, inviting offshore cryptocurrency companies to locate and operate in the Philippines. The Authority has obtained an overwhelming response and has already received applications from at least 80 fintech companies offering blockchain applications and digital currency services. CEZA will initially award 25 principal FTSOVC licenses.

In a speech delivered by Sec. Lambino during the said event, he shared that he was honoured to welcome Liannet Technology Ltd. in CEZA’s bossom and proudly shared that “the CEZA fintech hub is already making history. It is creating new revenues for the agency and it is going to create new jobs and business opportunities for Northern Luzon.” It was just in May of this year when CEZA unveiled and rolled out its vision of a fintech haven and CEZA has already issued the first three FTSOVC licenses. More firms are expected to follow suit.

Likewise, Li, Chairman of Apsaras Group Ltd., in a speech delivered on the same event, expressed his thanks to CEZA for trusting the company. He described the Apsaras Group Ltd. as a blockchain technology firm that also focuses on industrial, manufacturing, infrastructure and other asset investments. He shared that the company aims “to use blockchain technology and cryptocurrency to create the application environment, entire industry value chain and blockchain eco-system for [their] investment and development projects.”
