CUV Ventures Corp. RevoluPAY® United States Federal Registry And State Licensing Analysis
May 28, 2018
Vancouver, BC – CUV Ventures Corp. (TSX-V: CUV) (the "Company") Vancouver, BC – (the "Company") is pleased to announce that senior management has concluded several investigatory face-to-face meetings with the three United States law firms: Akerman, Fuerst Ittleman David & Joseph and, Greenberg Traurig. The focus of the meetings is to determine and analyze both, Federal Registry and State licensing criteria for an eventual wholly owned U.S subsidiary for the RevoluPAY® Blockchain powered Remittance and Leisure Payment app. The company considers prudent that this analysis begins now, due to the attractiveness of travel offers located in the United States and, the enormous annual influx of international tourists choosing popular United States destinations for their vacations.
RevoluPAY® and RevoluVIP Family Union
Beyond the scope of the remittance industry, RevoluPAY® will empower local vendors of travel related services with a seamless and easy mobile method to manage receivables. The hub of the RevoluVIP travel club invariably includes local "at destination" vendors worldwide, who cater to international visitors. With over 75 Million international tourists choosing the United States as their travel destination annually, the RevoluPAY® merchant application should be extremely popular at Attractions, Waterparks, National Parks, Excursion operators, Hotel Chains, Restaurant Chains and, other locations popular with international visitors. As RevoluVIP is unmistakably a private member only travel Club, the intent would be to strike financially attractive deals for members to utilize the specific United States based nationally domiciled service providers, while at the same time, imposing the use and acceptance of RevoluPAY® as the payment mechanism of choice for our members. While these transactions could technically be enacted internationally, the company feels that a local presence in the United States could offer significant benefits, especially if the subsidiary obtains national federal registry status then, subsequently, specific State licensing, in states where international tourism is extremely prevalent, such as New York, Florida, Washington, California and Nevada. Shareholders should note that these initial meetings with legal counsel are purely exploratory in nature and, do not impede the rollout of neither RevoluPAY® nor RevoluVIP, as both divisions will be able to carry out transactions, in the interim, through European based U.S subsidiaries, equity partners or eventual licensee (franchise) partners in any chosen world jurisdiction.
RevoluVIP and RevoluPAY® Dual Focus
For the benefit of shareholders, we break down the typical trip into two components:
- RevoluVIP Initial Trip Booking – Operating much like any travel booking platform, RevoluVIP will unite worldwide GDS and Wholesale operators into an easy to use the online and mobile platform, indistinguishable from those that travelers use today. Members will, however, benefit from reduced rates and exclusive travel offers. RevoluVIP members will only be able to pay for travel services using their RevoluPAY® app.
- RevoluPAY® "at destination" offers – Currently, online travel operators have little to no revenue from activities undertaken by travelers at their ultimate destination. RevoluVIP wishes to change this, by proposing to its members local; amenities, attractions, dining, excursions and ancillary ground services, thus, assisting members to continue to receive Club membership benefits, even "at destination". RevoluVIP will seek specific agreements with local businesses, whether private or corporate owned, who ultimately wish to service RevoluVIP members at a chosen destination. All of these services will be exclusively payable through RevoluPAY® via the unified and, co-developed, RevoluPAY® Merchant app.
Introducing the RevoluPAY® Merchant App
Conceived, Designed and developed in conjunction with the consumer version of the Apple and Android apps, the RevoluPAY® merchant app will allow entities or individuals, at the destination, to seamlessly charge receivables to RevoluPAY® consumer app users worldwide. The transaction could be with a simple souvenir market stall vendor in, for instance, the Bahamas or, a multinational Restaurant chain, present in many countries. Once the merchant has been approved, their capacity to charge receivables to RevoluPAY® users will be enabled. The United States is a very popular travel destination and, the company estimates that, typically, a traveler will spend as much at their ultimate destination as they did for their entire travel arrangements. In some cases, local destination spending far exceeds initial travel costs, especially on short haul trips. The company considers this market to be extremely attractive and. by forging the right merchant relationships with destination partners; the company will bring extended value to RevoluVIP members and, likewise, procure an expedited worldwide acceptance of RevoluPAY®, allied to significantly increased revenue.
