VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CUV Ventures Corp. (TSX-V: CUV) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has received an update from Hogan Lovells concerning the PSD2 license approval and, wishes to provide further clarity concerning the updated current timeline. The company further provides a corporate update.
Timeline of PSD2 License Petition
As previously disclosed in the company’s news release dated December 10th, 2018, the wholly owned subsidiary, RevoluPAY S.L., estimated timeline for Proprietary PSD License Petition commenced on Nov 22nd, 2018, subject to a 90 day statutory approval term. However, as explained in the subsequent news release dated January 7th, 2019, the central bank adopted the newer PSD2 license requisites on the following day, specifically the 23rd Nov 2018. The company had therefore applied for the previous PSD license one day before the introduction of the sweeping changes introduced within the newer and, in the company’s opinion, more beneficial, PSD2 licensing. During the interim term, management and, Hogan Lovells, have made two separate personal visits to the Central Bank and, have successfully updated the original petition to meet the criteria of the PSD2 licensing requirements. RevoluPAY S.L received correspondence from Hogan Lovells, dated 19 February, in which the law firm advises that it has spoken with officials at the Central Bank concerning the RevoluPAY S.L pending PSD2 license application and, expects to now have final news by March 8th, 2019.

Real Estate is a multi-billion dollar worldwide Industry but, how payments are processed still remains in the dark ages. While the major component of any real estate transaction is the cost of the property, within every transaction, there are numerous payments to be made. Handling all of these small but, imperative, payments can be cumbersome and, time consuming, for the buyer. These costs can also, if not paid in a timely manner, impede closing and, through unnecessary delays, can even increase the overall cost of the transaction. With RevoluPAY and, through RevoluREALTY, all payments could essentially be made from a central Buyer e-Wallet based account, simply selecting beneficiaries from a phones contact list and, issuing instantaneous payments. When finalizing the property transaction, RevoluPAY could also broker competitive interbank exchange rates, for the final main property purchase price. The first partner of RevoluREALTY in this sector is expected to be NUKONDO®. The company is pursuing other alliances in the Real Estate sector, in which it will deploy RevoluPAY as a centralized payment mechanism. An inhouse programming team expects to have the RevoluREALTY website operational by March 31st, 2019, allowing direct sign-up for real estate professionals and, those entities who provide ancillary services to the industry.
