By | News | No Comments

DNotes Global, Inc. today announced the release of the new DNotes Pay payment gateway plugin for the WooCommerce eCommerce platform. The new plugin will enable websites using WooCommerce to add DNotes payment options to their online shopping carts.

WooCommerce is one of the more popular eCommerce solutions, with more than 26 million downloads and over four million active installations. The WooCommerce platform is used by roughly 30% of all online stores around the world. The DNotes Pay plugin ensures that those merchants now have a simple, effective way to seamlessly integrate DNotes payment capabilities into their checkout systems.

DNotes Global CTO Theodore Hauenstein said that this product release is part of DNotes Global’s continuing effort to ensure that DNotes Pay is accessible for all the world’s most popular and commonly used eCommerce platforms. As part of that effort, the company has recently released a WordPress plugin and checkout script for merchant use.

“The WooCommerce platform is extremely popular with many WordPress websites,” Hauenstein said, “and provides an effective and comprehensive system for managing a whole array of eCommerce activities, ranging from inventory and order management to shopping cart functionality and a checkout system. Our goal with the DNotes Pay plugin for this platform was to provide a simple, easy-to-use way for those WooCommerce sites to offer customers the DNotes payment option.”

A company spokesperson noted that the plugin is easy to install and incorporate into any WooCommerce environment. Anyone using WooCommerce can simply download the plugin, upload it to their site, and activate it. Once installed, there are just a few basic settings to configure to complete the process. Hauenstein suggested that the entire process takes only a few minutes to complete.

Once the initial setup is done, the website’s eCommerce platform will show DNotes Pay as a payment option during checkout. Site users will be able to use their DNotes to purchase products from the site and payments will be automatically confirmed at the backend. More importantly, the entire process occurs without any third-party involvement or excessive fees.

DNotes Global Inc CEO Alan Yong stressed the important role DNotes Pay and similar innovations play in the company’s long-term strategy to bring the full benefits of digital currency to the world. “The digital revolution is perhaps the greatest innovation we’ve seen in many generations,” Yong said. “As the world becomes ever more digitalized, we need new and even more innovative ways to manage our digital lives. In areas like eCommerce, we are moving toward more efficient, trustworthy, and inexpensive ways to manage transactions.”

“DNotes Pay is part of our broader effort to bridge the divide between the existing centralized system and the emerging decentralized economy. This plugin, like other DNotes Pay innovations, is one more tool that can help businesses and other sellers to break free of reliance on third-party payment processers and provide their customers with cheaper, more efficient payment options and a greater measure of economic freedom.”

“The future of money is here,” Yong said. “And DNotes Global is committed to helping to forge the path that enables everyone in the world to benefit from digital currency and blockchain technology. DNotes Pay and our other exciting, innovative product and service solutions are critical to our efforts to achieve that goal.”

DNotes Global CEO Alan Yong To Share Vision In Keynote Speech At Emerge ICO Summit In Austin

By | News | No Comments

DNotes Global, Inc. today announced that company CEO Alan Yong has been invited to deliver a keynote speech at the Emerge ICO Summit on October 9 in Austin, Texas, in which he is expected to share his vision for the blockchain and digital currency industry.

The Emerge ICO Summit is being hosted by Ten Capital Group, and will bring together angel investors, venture capitalists, and crypto hedge funds from the Ten ICO Syndicate with cryptocurrency startups and other companies raising ICO funds. The event is billed as an opportunity for blockchain-based startups to interact directly with technology investors.

The summit will include several sessions focusing on different aspects of the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry, including sessions detailing ICO best practices, tokenization, financial disruption, and the blockchain. Other sessions will address micropayments, blockchain-based dispute resolution, and the newest blockchain applications.

Ten Capital’s Hall Martin highlighted blockchain technology’s promise and its increasingly mainstream appeal to investors. “Blockchain is going mainstream in the Fintech space with institutional investors wanting to adopt the technology and participate across the board,” he said.

Yong is the former head of Dauphin Technology and has been at the forefront of technological evolution for three decades, with innovative leadership in personal computing and cryptocurrency. His company, DNotes Global, is dedicated to creating and maintaining an ecosystem that will support the DNotes digital currency and foster its mainstream adoption on a global scale.

As CEO of DNotes Global, Alan Yong has been outspoken about his views on initial coin offerings, particularly as they relate to issues surrounding regulation. He has praised ICOs as a “tremendous tool for capital formation” and called them a “superior option for fundraising when compared to traditional capital formation strategies and tools.”

At the same time, however, he has urged that his industry take note of regulators’ views on this new fundraising tool and act responsibly to address those agencies’ concerns. He has suggested that startups work to comply with SEC regulations to avoid conflict with current legal requirements and the potential for new, more draconian regulations that might stiffly innovation.

Yong is also an enthusiastic spokesman for his industry and has predicted that digital currency and blockchain technology will play an important and central role in the emerging digital age. “As time goes by, everything that can be digitalized will be digitalized,” he said. “Today’s blockchain-based startups are leading us into that digitalized age, with many new and exciting projects that will change the way we think about financial management, payment systems, and financial inclusivity and self-empowerment.”

“Today’s tech investors have an opportunity to help lead the world into that digital age and are always searching for truly worthy projects that can impact people’s lives and open the door to new levels of job and wealth creation. The upcoming Emerge ICO Summit will play a tremendous role in facilitating that process, so I look forward to sharing my thoughts with everyone in attendance.”

DNotes Global Inc Announces DNotes Pay Checkout

By | News | No Comments

DNotes Global, Inc. today announced the release of its new DNotes Pay checkout tool that enables online merchants to seamlessly integrate the DNotes payment option within their existing checkout system. The company also confirmed that the tool is now live on the Smokey’s Gardens site.

According to a company spokesperson, the tool is a flexible DNotes Pay script that can be integrated with most online shopping carts and checkout systems. Unlike the DNotes Pay digital and WordPress plugins previously released, this tool is reportedly designed for merchants who already use online checkout systems.

DNotes Global CTO Theodore Hauenstein confirmed that the checkout script is compatible with most current carts and checkout system options and noted that there are plans to “create scripts and plugins for popular ecommerce platforms” which will make it even easier for users that utilize those platforms.

“Our goal is to make online digital currency payments as simple and pain-free as possible for everyone involved, including consumers and merchants,” Hauenstein said. “When we released DNotes Pay in July, we had in mind merchants who needed an easy way to sell individual digital products, but who lacked a more established checkout system for their sales. DNotes Pay offered them a way to instantly deliver digital content using a tool that required minimal setup. The DNotes Pay checkout script now offers similar benefits to merchants who already have an online checkout system in place.”

Hauenstein noted that the script handles the merchant side of the sales transaction, confirming payments and marking orders as paid within just a few minutes after a sale is made. For the site user, the checkout process will remain as familiar as ever. Buyers will be able to go through the online checkout process, select DNotes Pay, and then be shown a popup window that allows them to enter the DNotes payment amount and address.

DNotes Global Inc CEO Alan Yong reiterated his company’s commitment to breaking new ground in its efforts to help bring digital currency into the mainstream economy. “We are on the cusp of a once-in-a-generation technology revolution,” Yong noted, “and this new digital era demands a new digitalized approach to the way we conduct commerce. Everything that can be digitalized is being digitalized, and individuals and companies need a more efficient way to keep pace with that new paradigm.”

“Mass acceptance and adoption of digital currency is the next step in a technological evolutionary process that will transform the way we do business online – and eventually, offline as well.”

The company has previously tested its DNotes Pay tool, in online digital sales of an audiobook version of Yong’s Improve Your Odds: The Four Pillars of Business Success. According to a spokesperson, the payment option performed flawlessly in those initial tests. Yong and his team expect similar success with the company’s new checkout tool as well.

“There’s much more to come, of course,” Hauenstein said. “We are in the process of planning and developing a host of commercial solutions that will be critical for expanding and solidifying the DNotes and digital currency ecosystem.”

Yong stressed that this is all part of his company’s long-term strategy for fulfilling the true potential of digital currency. “In the end, this is about economic freedom and empowerment. DNotes Global intends to continue to be a leader in the industry, creating the solutions merchants and consumers need to fully participate in the new digital age.”

DNotes Global Inc Launches Reg. D 506 (c) Funding to Raise $5 million from Accredited Investors in a series of Three Funding Rounds

By | News | No Comments

DNotes Global, Inc. announced on Thursday that its first funding round utilizing Reg. D 506 (c) to raise $5 million from accredited investors is now live. An offering statement has been filed with the SEC and a Private Placement Memorandum (PPM) is now available to verified accredited investors. Prospective investors must first be verified through the company’s investor web portal:

Regulation D Rule 506 (c) was created as part of the JOBS Act to facilitate capital formation and job creation in 2012 (Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act). This funding program is only available to accredited verified investors.

An accredited investor, in the United States, must have a net worth of at least $1,000,000, excluding the value of his or her primary residence, or have an annual income of at least $200,000 for the last two years (or $300,000 combined income if married).


$5,000,000 offering

Up to 1,000,000 Class A Common Shares of DNotes Global, Inc.  representing 12.5% ownership on a fully diluted basis of the outstanding shares are offered with a minimum subscription of $5,000 (5 units).

DNotes Global’s founder and CEO Alan Yong confirmed that this is the first of three funding rounds in the company’s relentless effort to propel DNotes digital currency toward mass adoption as an inclusive, trusted digital currency for global commerce. He explained that this is a massive global project that started with the launch of DNotes on February 18, 2014. The company is already actively working on a second funding round that will utilize Reg. A+ Mini-IPO Tier 2 to raise up to $50 million from accredited and non-accredited investors worldwide. Yong also indicated that the third round will involve a traditional IPO, with the participation of underwriters.

DNotes Global had previously committed to seeking funding through these more traditional, regulated avenues, rather than using an initial coin offering (ICO), as many other crypto-related projects have done in recent years. Yong said that he has yet to see an ICO that complies with current legal requirements and reaffirmed his company’s commitment to working with regulators as DNotes Global raises the capital it needs to continue its mission of achieving mass adoption for the DNotes digital currency.

“I believe that digital currency and its underpinning blockchain technology is a generational opportunity that will be even bigger than the Internet,” Yong said. “As it moves toward mass adoption, it will result in massive job and wealth creation for people everywhere.”

Yong vowed that his company would continue to provide the type of leadership the digital currency industry needs to ensure that the technology’s benefits are enjoyed by as many people around the world as possible. He cited the company’s innovative ecosystem, services, and the 25% pre-dilution shares gifted to the currency as part of the cross-ownership model as clear examples of how DNotes Global plans to increase inclusivity and accessibility. His goal is simple: to make sure that no one gets left behind in the digital currency revolution.

“Inclusiveness rests at the heart of everything that we do,” Yong insisted. “The DNotes team understands that digital currency needs to be accessible and inclusive for everyone – and that means that we need to work to remove barriers that might otherwise inhibit participation. As we have developed the DNotes ecosystem, we have endeavored to make everything as easy to use as possible to ensure maximum accessibility.

Whether it is our innovative CRISP savings plans, making DNotes proof-of-stake, or our DNotes Pay automated payment system, inclusivity is always one of our primary concerns. For digital currency to fulfill its promise to the world, it must be accessible, trustworthy, and inclusive.”

DNotes Global Inc Announces Proof of Concept for DNotes Pay Automated Online Payment System

By | News | No Comments

DNotes Global, Inc. announced on Friday that an experimental Proof of Concept for its DNotes Pay automated online payment tool is now available for download and testing. The new payment system is a streamlined, simplified, and user-friendly tool that provides automatic payment, confirmation, and delivery of digital products.

“DNotes Pay is a next-generation online payment solution that brings the power of convenient, low-cost merchant transactions to everyone around the world,” according to DNotes Global co-founder and CEO Alan Yong. “Until now, individual sellers have struggled to manage the expense and complications involved with traditional merchant payment systems. DNotes Pay is designed to offer a more inclusive solution and greater self-empowerment and opportunity for people everywhere in the world.”

DNotes Global CTO Theodore Hauenstein said that the test version of DNotes Pay is available and ready for use by individual digital product sellers, hobbyists, and others whose ability to sell digital content online may have previously been inhibited by a lack of resources or limited technical knowledge. He also noted that the tool offers new capabilities for those who want to manage “smaller transactions that do not require the protection” needed for most formal commercial transactions.

DNotes Pay is designed to simplify merchant transactions by offering a less expensive and efficient way to receive payments from customers without relying on third-party solutions. The company claims that the tool can be set up in a matter of minutes and is flexible enough to be adapted for use in more secure and robust payment applications.

“We designed DNotes Pay so that there is no need for programming experience or other specialized expertise,” Hauenstein said. “There is no account setup involved, no middle man to deal with, and it doesn’t require a database or other complicated system to work. It is also a lite tool with minimal server requirements, so that it will work with pretty much any hosting solution.”

The new tool will also reportedly enable sellers to automatically deliver digital products after the purchase is complete, removing the need for a separate order fulfillment process. Moreover, sellers will receive their payments immediately, and there are no setup, maintenance, or transaction fees other than DNotes’ minimal blockchain fee per transaction.

DNotes Pay enables sellers to receive payment in DNotes or USD equivalent from anywhere in the world, without respect to borders or other country restrictions. And because there are no transaction fees involved with the process, the tool will enable those sellers to offer new options for their customers, including so-called micro transactions.

Hauenstein stressed that this is just the first of many DNotes solutions. The company already has plans for a host of other commercial solutions, cart integrations, solutions for software developers, and strategic integration with popular ecommerce platforms that will be introduced in the months and years to come.

“With DNotes Pay,” Yong said, “we are determined to fundamentally transform the way sellers and buyers think about digital commerce. We live in an age in which anything that can be digitized will be digitized, and that requires new strategies and tools to keep pace with new innovations and expectations. At DNotes Global, we remain as committed as ever to leading our industry as we meet the challenge of providing inclusive, self-empowering, and accessible solutions for people around the world.”

DNotes Global Inc Introduces Electrum DNotes Wallet

By | News | No Comments

DNotes Global, Inc. announced on Friday that its Electrum DNotes Wallet is now available for Windows, Mac, and Android mobile users. According to details provided by the company, the new state-of-the-art lite digital currency wallet will enable users with the tools they need to quickly, easily, and safely manage their DNotes wallets and transactions.

DNotes users can obtain their DNotes Electrum wallet by downloading it from the DNotes website, which hosts download versions for Windows, Mac, and Android systems. Alternatively, they can download it from the Google Play Store.

DNotes Global CTO Theodore Hauenstein described the wallet as a light weight wallet system that enables users to easily create and manage multiple wallets. The wallet was forked from the original open-source software used for the Electrum wallet – a popular choice for many Bitcoin enthusiasts.

“We wanted to provide DNotes users with a safe, reliable, and simple-to-use wallet that can make their lives easier,” Hauenstein said. “With the DNotes Electrum wallet, there is no need to download the DNotes blockchain, which is something many of our stakeholders are sure to appreciate. More importantly, though, this wallet combines simplicity and rapid use with the security options today’s digital currency users need to protect their holdings.”

The new wallet offers tremendous security flexibility that will enable users to make small, everyday transactions with their DNotes using only basic security options. At the same time, however, the wallet offers a full range of robust features that will also make it ideal for users who opt for cold storage and offline private key management.

The company’s innovative DNotesVault will continue to offer secure, cold storage protection for DNotes stakeholders who choose to store their coins that way. In addition, users will also still have the option of maintaining their desktop wallet. Hauenstein said that the DNotes Electrum wallet provides a quicker, simpler way for those users to manage their DNotes, and has been designed to seamlessly integrate with the company’s planned invoicing and payment system.

DNotes Global CEO Alan Yong confirmed that the wallet has been a key part of DNotes plan. “We have always been committed to being equal to or better than our competitors,” Yong said. “That’s why it was vital for us to create a best-in-class wallet that can provide DNotes users with the feature-rich wallet management experience they need and deserve. Now that the technology has evolved to the level needed to make that dream a reality, the DNotes Electrum Wallet is ready to fulfill those needs.”

For Yong and his team, the release of the new DNotes wallet is yet another step toward the company’s greater goal of achieving mass adoption for the DNotes digital currency. Yong suggested that meeting that objective will require leadership and vision – and focusing on the things that matter to people around the world.

“DNotes is determined to provide the leadership that our industry needs to effectively bring the benefits of digital currency to the world,” Yong noted. “This is the real world, and it takes leadership to make things happen. There are billions of people around the globe who need greater financial inclusion and self-empowerment. The DNotes digital currency can and will provide those benefits, as a trusted and inclusive supplemental digital currency accessible by people everywhere.”

DNotes 2.0 Now Listed on Mercatox Exchange

By | News | No Comments

DNotes Global, Inc. has announced that its cryptocurrency under management, DNotes is now trading on the Mercatox digital currency exchange. DNotes, which received a major technological upgrade earlier this year, has been listed under the ticker symbol ‘NOTE’.

DNotes Global Chief Technology Officer, Theodore Hauenstein, expressed his company’s appreciation for the Mercatox team’s efficient listing process. “It has been a true pleasure to work with the folks at Mercatox,” Hauenstein said. “Their team has been professional and responsive at every step of the way. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with their exchange.”

Mercatox markets itself as a universal market platform that combines the best features of automated trading, smart contract-based peer-to-peer sharing, payment services, and more. The company says that its goal is to “create a new financial market in the digital world” and currently offers trading for popular digital currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum, as well as a large selection of altcoins.

DNotes 2.0 is the most current version of the DNotes digital currency which includes new technological features and expanded benefits for the currency’s stakeholders. According to DNotes Global CEO Alan Yong, the upgrade marks the beginning of his company’s accelerated push to achieve its broader goal of gaining global acceptance and adoption as a mainstream currency.

“Our mission has not changed,” Yong said. “DNotes was never designed to be a niche solution for a niche problem. From the beginning, we have been committed to creating a trusted digital currency that people around the world can rely on for greater financial inclusiveness and empowerment. Digital currency must be able to improve people’s lives. At DNotes Global, we are committed to ensuring that DNotes fulfills that promise.”

The upgraded DNotes includes new features and improvements to existing benefits. The most noticeable is the currency’s switch from proof-of-work to a proof-of-stake network consensus model. That change was prompted by the company’s desire to reduce the influence of digital currency miners and empower the currency’s stakeholders. The DNotes blockchain now also rewards savers with 0.5% interest per month for all balances that are not moved during that month’s CRISP period.

Yong believes that the new proof-of-stake and saving models will better reflect the company’s commitment to maximize DNotes’ benefits for those who hold and use the currency. As Yong noted, it is the currency’s stakeholder community that have the most concrete interest in DNotes achieving its adoption and utility goals.

Yong pointed to DNotes’ other newly-added features and benefits are just as critical to achieving these goals. For example, the company implemented a new blockchain invoicing system that will provide each DNotes transaction with its own unique identifier – to simply merchant use of the digital currency and help them reduce the need for third-party transaction-management options. The company taking charge of DNotes’ development, DNotes Global has other blockchain software in development, and is currently upgrading its supporting business applications that the currency operates on to simplify the digital currency user experience.

A company spokesperson has confirmed that DNotes Global is currently in talks with other cryptocurrency exchanges, to provide DNotes users with a growing array of trading options.
