Kuala Lumpur, 27 February 2019 – LuxTag® Sdn Bhd., a Malaysian innovation-driven enterprise specializing in Blockchain application development and Dagang Net Technologies Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dagang NeXchange Berhad (“DNeX”), announced today the signing of a collaboration agreement to provide eServices based on the blockchain technology.
Under the agreement, both companies will be developing eServices leveraging on blockchain and digital ledger technology (“DLT”) for managing digital assets or digital files that contain such content as text, images, and multimedia.
The agreement was signed at a ceremony held today at the World Blockchain Summit in Kuala Lumpur where LuxTag was represented by Mr. Rene Bernard, Chief Executive Officer and Founder, and Mr. Faeez M Noor, Chief Financial Officer and Founder.
Dagang Net, meanwhile, was represented by its Chief Executive Officer Mr. Wan Ahmad Syatibi Wan Abd Manan, and Ms. Jasbenderjit Kaur, Chief Technology Officer of DNeX. The signing was witnessed by Datuk Dr. Mohd Yusoff Sulaiman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology (“MIGHT”).
Blockchain is a data structure that represents a ledger, programmed to record and track anything of value while being distributed and without a central point of authority. Unlike a regular database, Blockchain has a non-destructive, immutable method to track data changes over time. This can effectively address the challenge in managing digital assets, especially in managing rights and permissions to access this type of assets.
Rene Bernard, LuxTag’s CEO declares that it is an honor to work with Dagang Net, a reputable IT services provider which has been proudly operating for about 30 years in Malaysia.
“At LuxTag, we see ourselves as creators, inventors, and innovators. Dagang Net, on the other hand, is very good at servicing businesses with productized solutions. This is a perfect fit for a strategic cooperation.” – Rene Bernard, CEO of LuxTag
Datuk Samsul Husin, Executive Deputy Chairman of DNeX, and Executive Chairman of Dagang Net said “We are pleased to be working together with LuxTag to explore opportunities in the increasingly growing market for services backed by blockchain and DLT. The blockchain revolution in managing digital assets is expected to expand to such sectors as education, finance, regulatory, healthcare, and government.”
He added that with potential benefits that the blockchain technology can offer to users, organizations are looking into ways how this technology can be incorporated in their businesses and services.
“Our venture into blockchain and DLT is part of the company’s Dagang Net Digital Platform initiative to provide end-to-end, innovative services to help customers be more efficient,” said Datuk Samsul Husin.
LuxTag sees this collaboration as the beginning of a promising strategic partnership to jointly develop an ecosystem of blockchain-based solution portfolio.
