TORONTO, April 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - DeFi Technologies Inc. (the “Company” or “DeFi”) (NEO: DEFI) (GR: RMJR) (OTC: RDNAF) is pleased to announce the Company has completed its implementation of the Shyft Network Node and has become one of the main validators of the Shyft Network.

The Shyft Federation – the private, semi-permissioned blockchain designed to embed trust, validation and discoverability into public and private ecosystems – has announced the launch of the Shyft Network compliance protocol. As a part of the launch, through DeFi Technologies’ Governance product, DeFi Technologies will be a validator on the network.

The Shyft Network protocol is an intraoperative, transformative solution that enables identity verification, validation and the sending of credentials and other data across multiple different blockchains and networks. The protocol was designed to help virtual asset service providers (VASPs), brokers, and Financial Institutions achieve full compliance with the Travel Rule, which was standardized globally by the Financial Action Task Force in 2019, and ease friction in the deployment of technical compliance solutions for virtual assets.

The Company is excited to become one of the main validators on the Shyft Network. By becoming a validator on the network, the Company will join the Shyft Network Federation.

The Shyft Federation will consist of 21 nodes. These nodes were chosen based on technical proficiency, physical installation of dedicated hardware on multiple Internet Service Provider (ISP) connections, with a dedicated battery back-up, security, and jurisdictional decentralization.

Furthermore, the Shyft Federation also selected nodes in a globally distributed manner, so as to bolster the geographic resilience of the Shyft Network across borders and to mitigate the risk of network outages. As a collective, Shyft Federation members work to promote the common interests and efforts of the Shyft Network.

The Company will generate revenue on every transaction it validates in the network. It will receive that revenue in the form of Shyft tokens which can be held or sold in the market.

Wouter Witvoet, CEO of DeFi Technologies said: “We are excited for the launch of the Shyft network and look forward to partaking in the governance protocol. As crypto further integrates into every jurisdiction in the world it will be important that there is a trusted network which helps companies be compliant with their operations and look forward to implementing Shyft into DeFi centric applications.”
