OTC Disclosure & News Service


VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mobetize Corp. (OTCQB:MPAY), a provider of mobile financial services (MFS) technology for the multi-billion dollar business to business (B2B) segment of the Fintech as a Service (FAAS) sector, is pleased to announce it has implemented real-time social biometric Digital Identity Verification to enhance Know Your Customer (“KYC”) capabilities to counter online identity fraud for its smartLoan platform.

As Mobetize innovates to future proof its Fintech solutions and position itself as a leader in the FAAS sector it has evaluated various scientific social biometric methodologies. Our solution will be to analyze social behavioural patterns using an artificial intelligence system together with proprietary machine learning algorithms to determine whether an online identity is authentic, a fraudster or a bot.

“Mobetize believes that Digital Identity Verification is integral to the future of FAAS and will be the primary source of identity verification. To this end, Mobetize has implemented a secure and encrypted technology with customized reporting and an analytics management dashboard that assesses and analyzes consumer KYC data.  The Mobetize solution will create a fraud proof footprint based on an individual’s social behaviour that generates a hard to replicate biometric signature,” Ajay Hans, CEO of Mobetize.

As the Fintech industry innovates, the Mobetize Fintech platform will be at the forefront of advancing technology offering cutting edge products and services to our customers.

About Online Marketplace Lending

Online marketplace lending has emerged as an industry, offering faster credit for consumers and small businesses. Companies in this industry have developed two primary business models: (1) Direct lenders that originate loans to hold in their own portfolios, commonly referred to as balance sheet lenders and (2) Platform lenders that partner with an issuing depository institution to originate loans and then purchase the loans for sale to investors as whole loans or by issuing securities such as member-dependent notes. Market analysts have identified a $1.0 trillion addressable market for online marketplace lenders (excluding mortgages), and estimated loan origination volumes could reach $90.0 billion by 2020*.
