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: https://investors.dnotesglobal.com/

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.

DNotes Swap Process Updated

By | News | No Comments

The DNotes coin swap process will now be done through a private fork of the legacy DNotes blockchain. We have created this fork to ensure that legacy DNotes holders are still able to swap their legacy DNotes for DNotes 2.0 long after the deadline, in the event they missed the swap. This also ensures we will not be accepting newly purchased or mined DNotes, protecting our users and network.

In order to swap your coins, you will need the following DNotes v1.3 wallet, which you can download here:
You will need to copy your wallet.dat or wallet backup file to C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\DNotes1-3 directory, open the wallet application and allow it to update.
Next, you will need an address to send your legacy DNotes in to for the coin swap, you can generate a legacy address with the following instructions:
Create a DNotesVault.com account if you don’t already have one.
Login to your DNotesVault.com account, and click the HISTORIC tab at the top.
Click Create Address, and send your DNotes to the address you just created.

Coin swaps will be processed once a month until further notice.

DNotes 2.0 Now Listed on Stocks.Exchange

By | News | No Comments

DNotes Global, Inc. has announced that its DNotes digital currency is now listed for trading on stocks.exchange. The recently upgraded version of DNotes will join major cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ether, and Litecoin, as well as a host of altcoins that are actively traded on the exchange.

DNotes Global CEO Alan Yong offered praise for the stocks.exchange team, and noted their professionalism and responsiveness. “Since the launch of DNotes 2.0, our team has been busy working to get DNotes listed on quality exchanges that exhibit the same type of drive and determination that we strive for every day,” Yong said. “The Stocks team has been as professional and fair as any of the exchanges we’ve encountered, and it’s my great pleasure to announce that they have decided to list DNotes for active trading.”

The four-year old DNotes digital currency recently received a massive upgrade, with new technological features and added benefits for its users. Company officials have stressed, however, that the DNotes vision remains the same: to become the world’s first truly global digital currency. As one spokesperson noted, “The mission remains the same. DNotes intends to become the trusted and inclusive digital currency that provides users around the world with the self-empowerment and financial independence they need to better their lives.”

With the recent upgrade, DNotes 2.0 has moved away from the common proof-of-work network consensus algorithm and opted instead for a proof-of-stake protocol. Proof-of-work is used by coins like Bitcoin and relies on rewards for miners to maintain the coin’s network. Some observers have suggested that the POW model has stunted Bitcoin’s growth and adoption, since miners enjoy what many see as excessive influence over many technological decisions.

By switching to the proof-of-stake model, DNotes Global’s team plans to prevent that concentration of mining influence. Instead, the POS model shifts that influence to the coin’s owners and users, who often have a greater interest in seeing new developments and improvements go forward.

CEO Yong suggested that proof-of-stake is just one of the many factors that will contribute to the company’s success in pushing for mass adoption of its digital currency. As Yong notes, the upgraded DNotes 2.0 will bring a rash of new benefits to its users and stakeholders:

“With DNotes 2.0, we’ve accelerated our push to achieve real adoption of digital currency on a global scale. As part of that effort, DNotes has added a new blockchain transaction invoice system that attaches an invoice number to any DNotes transaction – something that was specifically designed to simplify digital currency adoption for merchants who might otherwise be forced to use third-party solutions to manage crypto transactions. We’ve also improved our CRISP savings program and will be adding other new features in the near future.”

With the stocks.exchange listing, the DNotes team’s exchange outreach efforts appear to be accelerating as well. The company has confirmed that it is in direct talks with several other digital currency exchanges, to ensure that DNotes stakeholders have as many quality trading options available to them as possible.

Yong took time to acknowledge that community of users, stressing that DNotes’ longevity is directly attributable to the efforts and commitment of its stakeholders. “We have been fortunate to have so many great partners and community members – all committed to helping DNotes achieve its goal of being an accessible, understandable, and inclusive digital currency asset for everyone around the world.”

DNotes Global, Inc. Announces May 12 Cryptopia Listing Date for DNotes 2.0

By | News | No Comments

DNotes Global, Inc. today announced that its DNotes 2.0 digital currency will be listed on the Cryptopia exchange, effective May 12, 2018. The company revealed the news after receiving confirmation from Cryptopia, and a DNotes Global spokesperson praised the exchange’s service team for their professionalism.

“Cryptopia’s service team has been working closely with us to complete the listing process, and they have been helpful and responsive at every step of the way,” DNotes Global CEO Alan Yong said. “We have been impressed with how quickly they have handled the transition from DNotes to DNotes 2.0, and the great care they have taken to minimize any confusion for their exchange customers.”

DNotes Global, Inc. recently completed the successful launch of its DNotes 2.0 digital currency, which replaces the DNotes coin that launched in 2014. The new coin includes several important upgrades designed to provide greater benefits for stakeholders and enhance the company’s efforts to achieve its goal of achieving widespread mainstream acceptance and adoption on a global scale.

The upgrades include a switch to a proof-of-stake (POS) network consensus algorithm – a change that was prompted by the company’s desire to move influence from the mining community to DNotes owners and users. The new system will also enable DNotes stakeholders to earn DNotes by using their DNotes wallets to run nodes that support the coin’s network.

A company spokesperson has confirmed that DNotes Global has been in contact with other digital currency exchanges, as part of its effort to get DNotes 2.0 listed for trading on those platforms as well. The listing process is reportedly a top priority for DNotes Global, as the crypto community relies on the exchanges to acquire and trade digital currencies.

In the case of Cryptopia, the exchange has reportedly set the May 12 deadline to ensure that its customers are not confused by the transition from DNotes to DNotes 2.0.

Meanwhile, DNotes Global’s efforts to complete the stakeholder coin swap continue. The company had previously advised DNotes holders to remove their coins from the exchanges by April 16, 2018. Stakeholders who completed those transfers and stored their DNotes in the secure DNotesVault were provided with automatic swapping from DNotes to DNotes 2.0.

According to a company FAQ, stakeholders who have not yet swapped their old DNotes for the upgraded coins will still be able to do so in the immediate future, but the process will be done on an individual basis. In addition, DNotes Global had announced an April 16 soft deadline for miners. DNotes mined after that cutoff date will not be eligible for the DNotes 2.0 swap.

Company officials have emphasized the importance of ensuring that stakeholders enjoy a seamless transition to the upgraded coin. CEO Alan Yong has suggested that the company’s dedication to managing that transition is essential for achieving the broader goal of mass acceptance and adoption of the DNotes digital currency.

“Many members of the DNotes community have been with the coin since its initial launch,” Yong said. “Over that four years of involvement with the project, they have seen our commitment to ensuring that DNotes is understandable, accessible, and easy-to-use. With DNotes 2.0, we intend to maintain those important benefits as we continue to strengthen and expand the DNotes ecosystem and establish DNotes 2.0 as the world’s first globally accepted digital currency.”

Yong also said that additional announcements about other exchange listings will be revealed as those exchanges make their decisions in the weeks and months to come.
