EFI Coin is gearing up to be the first Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) registered cryptocurrency to do an Initial Coin Offering (ICO). This will be a Filipino pride!
Elmer Francisco Industries (EFI), a subsidiary of 1111 Empire, Inc., is behind the full electric Francisco Passenger Jeepney powered by QEV Technologies that was launched at the Quirino Grand Stand in Luneta Park, City of Manila last April 15, 2018.
The historic launching was attended by officials from the Department of Transportation (DOTr) represented by Assistant Secretary Mark Richmund de Leon, Land Transportation Franchising Regulatory Board (LTFRB) Board Member Atty. Aileen Lizada, Landbank of the Philippines Director and Partido Federal ng Pilipinas National President Atty. Jesus “Jayvee” Hinlo, Alay Buhay Congressman Michael Fermin, Inventors Association of the Philippines President Dennis Mercader, National Parks Development Committee Executive Director Penelope Belmonte, Italian Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Lorens Ziller, SM Senior Vice-President Liza Silerio, iPay Commerce Ventures Director Paolo Martel, iPay Commerce Ventures President Ronald Allan Aquino, Transport Group Leaders and members of the media.
Francisco is among the pioneers in the Jeepney making industry in the Philippines since 1947. The PUV Modernization Program aims to replace the old jeepneys that are 15 years old and above with modernized jeepneys that are safer, more convenient for the commuting public and environment friendly.
Among the new features are:
- Automated Fare Collection System wherein passengers will be paying using NFC Cards or QR Codes instead of loose change which would be computed using GPS technology making the whole process much more convenient.
- Built-in ramp and dedicated slot for PWD/Wheelchair Passengers.
- Passengers can stand straight inside the jeepney while going in and out of their seats.
- High Definition TV with GMA Digital Device so passengers could watch live television of board.
- 3-channel Dash Cam with backing video and 4-Channel CCTV System with 72-hour recording.
- Full electric powertrain with NO EMISSION and only 15-20mins charging time.
One year ago, I took a solo trip to Alaska!
The airfare was free 😱
After that, my long-distance guy and I relied heavily on free travel to keep our 3000-mile relationship going strong.
I love you, Dave Ramsey, but I disagree about credit cards.
Surprise: I never pay for anything with a debit card! 🙊
(I do keep a small checking account for emergency ATM withdrawals.)
You can treat a credit card exactly like a debit card:
ONLY spend what you already have in the bank, NEVER indebting more.
In return, it acts like a savings account: earning slow but steady cash back, known as “rewards.”
If you want to buy a house someday, you need to build a high credit score.
Your credit score is your inevitable “adulthood grade.”
Sucks, I know.
Just like school grades, it can be raised; but it’s far easier to maintain a high score than rebuild a low one.
Idk about your friends, but I think most of my friends really ought to utilize credit cards.
Sorry, Mr. Ramsey.
Unlike a savings account, opening a brand new credit card decreases your credit score. ⬇️
Your score increases again as your cards age. ⬆️
Do NOT apply for multiple credit cards within 6 months of each other. 🛑
Once or twice per month, pay the FULL credit card balance.
(Ideally, set up autopay from a “monthly bills” savings account - this actually accrues a little extra interest for you to keep!)
With some cards, reward points are worth more if you spend them on travel.
Ex. I can redeem 10k points for either $100 cash, or $125 in airfare...
Just by paying my bills on time, especially rent, eventually I accrue enough rewards to go anywhere. ✈️
This is critical for someone like me, whose family, best friends, and million weddings are very far away.
How do credit card companies generate revenue?
1) Annual fees
2) Late fees (“APR” is the % of each expense that they charge if you don’t repay it within 30 days)
3) Foreign currency conversion fees
@ThePointsGuy can recommend the best credit card for your goals.
I urge you to consult someone who really understands your impulse control, life pressures, and cash flow.
BE CAREFUL AND DON’T OPEN A CARD WITHOUT FORMAL ADVICE LOL

#Venezuela Looking to Launch a #CentralBank for #Cryptocurrencies
Venezuela is reportedly looking to lunch a central #bank for #cryptocurrencies, as the country’s National Constituent Assembly is preparing to reform the #Venezuelan#Constitution to include it, along with a court above its Supreme Court.
According to Reuters, information on the development was provided by Hermann Escarrá, which the outlet describes as “one of the most influential members of the assembly that prepares the changes to the 1999 Constitution.” A draft of the changes to the country’s Constitution is set to be presented in 35 days to the board of the Constituent Assembly. Per Reuters most of what will change is still unknown as high-ranking government officials have only generally addressed the move. Escarrá revealed, however, a central bank for cryptos is coming.
He was quoted as saying: “There will be the Central Bank with its functions in exchange, monetary and financial policy and the Central Bank will be incorporated.” The changes will reportedly include the Petro, a controversial oil-backed cryptocurrency Venezuela launched ealrier this year, and a “e court of constitutional guarantees” that’s set to be above Venezuela’s Supreme Court.
After launching the Petro, Maduro ordered several state-owned companies to accept it, and has revealed the country “may” charge for exports in it. Venezuela notably attempted to offer India crude oil at a 30% discount if it paid in Petros, a discount India refused.
The cryptocurrency is seen as a way for the country to draw in foreign investments and bypass international sanctions. Century-old think tank Brookings Institute has claimed it undermines legitimate cryptocurrencies, and president Trump banned US citizens from the cryptocurrency, a move Venezuela touted was “free publicity.” Per Escarrá, changes to the Constitution will also see Venezuelan companies have greater access to foreign investment, specifically in the oil sector. He stated: “there will be an opening, provided that the State has the majority.” #bitcoininfo#bitcoinnews
