Humaniq releases brand new version of popular App

London, England, March 8, 2018 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - London-based FinTech firm Humaniq is marking the milestone of its app reaching its first 50,000 downloads by announcing a new, improved version.

Humaniq announced a Free Secure Chat & Crypto-Wallet App and a new referral program for its community of users. The Humaniq app includes a wallet, bioID, secure messenger and the unbanked can use it for making digital ID and peer-to-peer transactions in African countries (including Uganda, Senegal, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, and Rwanda).

The new features include:

New referral program
With Humaniq's  egalitarian emission approach, a large proportion of the HMQ crypto coin is reserved for active app users. A referral program has showed a very positive adoption curve from users, with more than 10,000 users together inviting more than 75,000 thousand friends in total to join the application. Humaniq's new 2.0 referral program  will build on this by displaying community progress with referrals and thereby make the  referral process more transparent and intuitive for all users.

Transaction options extension
Transactions can now be made via the messenging chat system. The principle the Humaniq app is grounded in- is that everything should revolve around humans coming together to build community. That is why an ability to communicate is crucial. The Humaniq team have introduced transactions into personal chats to focus on the communication between people. Whether it is a text, or an image or a gift in HMQ – it is now all in one place.

In addition,  users  are now allowed not only to send HMQ, but also to request directly from their friends or family. The Humaniq team believes that an ability to request a desired amount is a more efficient and faster way to communicate financially. This feature is available for all users that have access to the wallet, and is also secured by our enhanced anti-fraud system. Users can also enjoy  a new way of grouping transactions as  a smarter way to organise personal communication. From now on, users will be able to clearly focus either on the financial history or on the correspondence with a specified friend  by staying in the unified chat room. While text and media messages will be group based on the timing, financial transactions will be grouped by type and action type.

New on-boarding process
The Humaniq team redesigned the on-boarding process to make it clearer and easier for inexperienced smartphone users. The close collaboration with Humaniq's ambassadors in African nations led to the  creation of an on-boarding process that adapts to the needs of customers, whereas the purpose remains the same: to explain what features are available, how to use them and how to benefit from their use.

New registration process
A new registration process allows users to start interacting with a Humaniq assistant bot, which becomes  smarter and is learning to execute more useful commands, even without the registration. Unlike conventional applications where a user has to specify required personal credentials in order to get access to a given  functionality, the Humaniq team would like to let users choose what functionality is needed, and how to access it.

Optional passcode and new security standards
Humaniq App security standards have also been reconsidered and will allow users to opt-out from a required passcode. There is, therefore, also an AI powered system to decide when an additional biometric verification is required to eliminate the risk of  of unauthorised transactions.

"The Humaniq's team of ambassadors in Africa received and analysed feedback from users, and with this data it was possible to create such  significant updates. We hope our users will appreciate all the innovations and we will move even further towards our goal to empower the unbanked" – said Anton Mozgovoy, CTO Humaniq.

The Humaniq team has also made additional upgrades to remote infrastructure and with new CDN points, users in Africa will experience a faster by 16% response rate from mobile application which is already available in Google Play and can be used even on low-end mobile devices with Android 4.0.3.

Humaniq is a London-based Fintech firm that provides next generation financial services using its Blockchain-based mobile application targeted at the unbanked and underprivileged in emerging economies globally. Humaniq is focused on worldwide financial inclusion by providing access to global markets, greater opportunities, and novel financial solutions using repurposed technologies for those gaining exposure to financial services for the first time.

China Mobile Research Institute Enlists VIAVI to Support Introduction of 5G Service

San Jose, CA, February 12, 2018 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - VIAVI Solutions (NASDAQ: VIAV) today announced a collaboration with China Mobile Communications Corporation (CMCC) to introduce 5G service in China by the end of 2019. VIAVI is a preferred vendor of China Mobile, supporting their specific technologies and aggressive roadmap with advanced test solutions. VIAVI will provide test and measurement hardware and software for China Mobile and several equipment manufacturers to support development of Slicing Packet Network (SPN) with FlexE interface, the technology the carrier is positioning for 5G transport.

Based on extensive analysis of 5G transport network requirements, CMCC has determined that Slicing Packet Network (SPN) is an optimal technology to support next-generation architecture, bandwidth, traffic model, network slicing, latency and time synchronization. Flexible Ethernet or FlexE is used in conjunction with SPN to create smaller Ethernet channels from a larger one, or vice versa, to guarantee quality of service (QoS) and isolation between slices at the transport layer. CMCC has requested that the ITU undertake standardization of SPN. VIAVI is committing to support CMCC by delivering an SPN test platform, establishing a common foundation for network equipment manufacturers, chip developers and transceiver vendors to validate products based on this technology.

In January 2018, Madam Yang Zhiqiang, Deputy General Manager of China Mobile Research Institute (CMRI) welcomed Oleg Khaykin, President and Chief Executive Officer, and Tom Fawcett, Vice President and General Manager, Lab & Production Business Unit, VIAVI Solutions, to her offices for strategic meetings on 5G planning. The CMRI is a technical organization within the CMCC group and is responsible for new technology research, standardization, and qualification of infrastructure equipment-including testing protocols.

"VIAVI has been honored to collaborate with China Mobile on analyzing 5G network scenarios and proposing technology strategy," said Khaykin. "In order to realize China Mobile's vision of introducing 5G service by the end of 2019, principal technologies including SPN for transport must be standardized by the ITU-T. We have advanced our test technology to meet this objective, and our solutions are ready to support the China Mobile ecosystem of partners to deliver interoperable network infrastructure."

Isentia releases beauty trends study on 2017 China top beauty brands on digital media

All-round analysis and different levels of insights are vital for successful strategy planning

Isentia's China team recently released the “2017 Q2 China beauty trends study”. The report shows that during the second quarter of 2017 the organic buzz in the beauty sector in China's mainstream social media reached 48 million posts, 17% more than the first quarter, and the online discussion related to makeup/cosmetic products jumped four times compared with the previous quarter.

Social media has become one of the primary channels for consumers to obtain beauty and makeup information. According to NPD, 92% of makeup users get information on products from YouTube videos by online influencers. Social media marketing is the largest shift we have seen in the beauty industry in terms of driving growth. The trends study by Isentia ranked the digital presence of 51 well-known beauty brands by aggregating and filtering the organic buzz from China's major social media, including Weibo, Wechat, Q&A, blogs, forums, website and apps such as “The little Red Book” and summarized the most-recent five major skin care and makeup trends in China.

Beauty digital buzz ranking

L'Oreal and Estee Lauder are at the center of the China's beauty discussions that they were listed as number one and two in the ranking respectively.  The organic buzz of Estee Lauder is almost double of that of Kiehl's, which is at third place.  (Please view the full report for the 51 brands rank)

It's not hard to see that the result somehow reflects the brands' input in the Chinese digital marketing sector. Take L'Oreal as an example. Since 2015, the brand has been shifting its marketing focus to digital media. In 2016 the brand successfully conducted several promotion campaigns by embracing cutting edge digital marketing tactics, from cooperating with online influencers to applying live streaming and AI technologies.  (For more case studies please visit our Isentia blog section)

5 major makeup and skincare trends in China

The beauty trend 1: Pursing whitening, radiance, and glowing skin

Through the analysis we found that Chinese consumers do not only desire fair but also radiant and glowing skin. Watery glowing skin, girly skin and lustrous skin have become the hot key words used by consumers to describe their desired skin.

To promote products with hydrant and glowing effects, cosmetic brands are frequently using key words such as “Watery glowing skin” which means the skin is hydrated and full of radiance. The study reveals that in China, Estee Lauder (Micro Essence Infusion Mask) and YSL (Fusion Ink Encre de Peau Cushion Foundation, Touche Eclat Le Teint) are the brands that leverage the key words for product promotion and also receive high online discussions.

The beauty trends 2: Blurred lines between skincare and makeup

Adding skincare function into foundation is not a new concept. Since 2012, high-end makeup brands such as La Mer and Sisely's foundation products have been called “Skincare foundation” as their foundations have nourishing or replenishing properties. In 2017, “Serum/Essential oil foundation” and “Instant age rewind foundation” have become the new hot key words for foundation products.

Through buzz analysis we can see that the expectations of consumers for essential oil foundations are majorly focused on the radiance, smoothness and moisturizing effects. Currently the most discussed product is Armani “Maestro fusion makeup maquillage fusion”.

The beauty trends 3: Strong needs for shortcuts to daily beauty routines

In 2015, Su Yan Shuang (素颜霜), which is a combined product of makeup and skincare, caters to women who want the “fake bare face (伪素颜)” effect. It is a cream which modifies the skin color, improves skin texture and optimizes the skin's clarity while promoting inner radiance.

The online discussion on Su Yan Shuang during 2017 Q2 surged 15 times compared with the previous quarter. Below is the rank of the top products related to Su Yan Shuang.

The beauty trends 4: Matte as new makeup trend and hottest lipstick colors 

In 2017 Q2, the organic buzz volume on “matte makeup” soared by 16% compared to Q1. As opposed to shimmer, glow, or shiny makeup, matte makeup is a kind of makeup that creates non-greasy and natural look. It is void of any excess oils, and has more velvety finish that pulls light inward, often with a powdery texture.

Based on the analysis of consumer discussions on lipstick products, we can see the change of the trend. The top 3 hottest lipstick colors by Chinese neitizen's discussions in Q2 are matte, pink and red. Compared to the last quarter, colors such as “mermaid color” and “peach blossom red” that were popular due to the popular TV dramas are gradually diminished due to the finish of the show.

The beauty trends 5: Social media slang in beauty emerged as hot communication language

When online influencers and social media key accounts are reviewing beauty products, they like to use social media words or nick-names of the products. As more brands are tapping into social media marketing, they tend to use “beauty slangs” and adapt the similar tone of voice for content creation to better engage with their consumers online. Isentia beauty trend study lists the recent hottest beauty slang with explanations. For example, the hottest and commonly used word is "Zhong cao 种草" (plant weeds), which refers to product recommendation shared by KOL or netizens to stimulate the intention of purchasing. The most co-mentioned products with “Zhong cao” is lipstick, followed by eye and facial makeup, and then skin care products.

Another word “Kong Ping 空瓶” (empty bottle), which means use out the product, is often appears at the product evaluation related post. Many China beauty influencers are posting content with themes such as “Kong Ping Ji 空瓶记” (Summary of Empties) for product review content.

Renie Zhang, Isentia associate insight director, said, “by pinpointing and understanding the trendy hot key words, brands can adjust their social media listening plans accordingly to better identify consumers insight for business actions. Social media is rapidly changing the way beauty brands connect and communicate with consumers. The Chinese post-80s and 90s generations have become the core consumers of beauty products, and they are also active social media users. At least half of their purchase decisions are based on word of mouth, with social media having a major impact on their entire purchase journey. By understanding market trends, consumer presences, identify personas and influential promotion channels, brands can leverage social media analysis and obtain different levels of insights.
