Blockchain E-commerce to Come to Latin America


Blockchain operating system and platform developer NYNJA Group, and smartphone manufacturer AMGOO, have announced a plan to distribute the NYNJA Virtual Operating System (vOS), an operating system and platform for the blockchain, by pre-installing it on AMGOO smartphones. The first global market to benefit from this operating system is Latin America.

The NYNJA vOS combines communication and commerce in a platform where security, efficiency, privacy and productivity are the focus. The NYNJA operating system has a communications layer and a secure payments layer, with a multi-currency wallet, and will be pre-installed on approximately 150,000 smartphones per month. The partnership aims to provide exceptional quality tools for communication and collaboration to give Latin Americans access to the reliability and security of blockchain-based commerce, currencies and transactions.

Alec Gramont, NYNJA co-founder and President, said: “We are really excited about partnering with AMGOO to bring advanced communications, blockchain secure transactions and global, borderless job opportunities to the people of Latin America,”

The platform will also be made available to existing AMGOO smartphone customers. Users will receive high-performance text, voice, video conferencing and project management tools via NYNJA’s communication layer as well as access to global cryptocurrencies through the multi-currency NYNJAwallet that holds Bitcoin, Ethereum, NYNJAcoin and ERC20-compatible tokens. The two firms have also outlined a program to cooperate with regional telecom operators to distribute the NYNJA vOS through operator channels in Latin America and Africa.

Founder and CEO of AMGOO, Christian Umana commented: “NYNJA has an incredible vision for empowering individuals around the world with best-in-class tools for communications and commerce. There is real potential for NYNJA to create millions of jobs for the people of Latin America, to provide them with access to global markets through frictionless communications tools and secure global transactions. It is a pleasure for us at AMGOO to be a part of this program.”

As part of the collaboration, NYNJA and AMGOO plan to work with telecom operators in Latin America to provide NYNJA users with an initial block of data upon activation.

Umana continued: “We want to make sure that anyone who joins the platform can get started using our tools to find work and earn a living. We will provide more than enough NYN to purchase data that will allow users to get onto our platform and take tests that qualify them to do the type of work they want to do. And we will pay them for taking the tests, and will guarantee qualified candidates jobs to get them started.”

Once workers are qualified to be a virtual assistant, data-entry expert, translator, designer or whichever other type of work they want to perform, the NYNJA auto-assign engine matches them with the jobs that best fit their capabilities. Each individual’s work capabilities, turnaround time and reliability, compiled from their tests and past work history, are used as a constantly evolving profile. The system searches the global pool of worker profiles and then auto-assigns the best worker for the best job.

Gramont explained: “Think of how Uber just automatically assigns a driver that is nearby and has the kind of car that you want to ride in. You don’t have to go and hail a taxi on the street anymore. In the same way NYNJA will assign the worker that can perform the services you want. No hiring process, no interviews, no portfolio’s or references. The system does it for you”

When workers complete their work, they earn NYNJAcoin or ‘NYN’, which they can use to purchase additional data, new apps, other goods and services within the NYNJA ecosystem and other digital currencies outside of NYNJA. Through the NYNJA multi-currency wallet, NYN will be exchangeable into Bitcoin, Ethereum and other ERC20 compatible tokens.

Gramont added: “As these currencies become more globally exchangeable and accepted for goods and services, we expect the NYNJA platform to become a central marketplace within which people can find work, get paid, trade currencies and purchase a broad range of goods and services,”

NYNJA and AMGOO plan to launch the program in December of this year, with a pilot expected for earlier in Q4. Beta launch of the NYNJA vOS are scheduled for August 2018.
