Naysan Munusamy co-founder of MoneyMatch from Malaysia talks about how he utilises the power of blockchain on a proven business case to make it even better. While he may not be a big believer of all the unregulated ICOs in the market place today, he is however bullish about the blockchain technology and the FinTech businesses built upon it. Unfortunately, businesses that exploit the blockchain and people's ignorance is giving legit businesses a bad name.
Interview and report by Eugene Tay.
David Fong, President of FinTech Association of Malaysia shares his views on how we will be moving very quickly towards a cashless society, which is great for cryptocurrency adoption. FinTech businesses are on the rise, capitalising on the power of blockchain and push from government to go regional. Still, the ongoing debate on how much regulation needs to be in place will be a topic of discussion for a while as both users and authorities try to strike a nice balance. After all, David believes, that no business can flourish with trust and having the right regulations in place.
An interview with Kristaps Vaivods and Maris Ziedonis from Hash Rush.
Hash Rush. It's a real time strategy game that's earns you money through in-game mining. For the causal gamers who don't care about cryptocurrency, all you need to know is that the lead developer behind Hash Rash is the guy who brought you the award winning The Witcher series.
For crypto enthusiasts, you would be interested to know that the mining that you do in game are actually a gamified environment of an actual crypto mining process in the background.
Hash Dash is the first of its kind and if this model proves to be successful we will see future games adopting this concept. But remember, you heard about it here first on CryptoCentral with me Eugene Tay.
I caught up with Kristaps and Maris, the brains behind Hash Rush over Skype and asked them the questions that you wanted to know.
Watch the video for the highlights from the interview.
Pre-ICO starts from 6th of August 2017 to 1st September 2017. The main Token Launch will take place from 13 September to 13 October 2017 unless a cap of 64,050,000 RC tokens sold is reached earlier.
Who would be interested in Hash Rush? If you are a gamer, this is revolutionary and its gonna be fun. Fans of Witcher would know that the the developers focus heavily on game play experience and storyline is extremely crucial. For miners, now instead of putting your money in Cloud Mining Services and watch grass grow, you can actually spend your time immersed in a rich storytelling environment and interact with other players.
I rate this Hash Rush 4.5 Alpha Points out of 5 for its solid team lineup, unique concept, and accessibility to non-crypto community.

I personally believe that cryptocurrency is the future and, like it or not, it's going to be the biggest talking point for the next three years; but don't just take my word for it - I caught up with Bob Ang, one of Singapore's pioneer in cryptocurrency trading, when Bitcoin was just worth barely a hundred dollars.
It's not inconceivable for Bitcoin to hit 5,000 USD per BTC by the end of 2017 or mid 2018.

Can we still make money through mining? What is the future of mining going to be? Is it better to own a rig or just get a cloud mining contract?
This is a must-watch 10 minute video for anyone thinking about getting into mining. If you're confused, like me, after reading the negative comments on the forums, the best way to get your questions answered is to go talk to someone who is solely mining to earn his coins and not through trading, or watch my videos as I do it for you.
I'm going to get me a rig and see for myself if all this is true. I also managed to get me a deal with Mark for any Alpha Mind/CryptoCentral fans who want to get in on the mining action. Leave a comment or PM me for information about buying a rig.
