Blockchain platform in Thailand shared by local banks

The central bank in Thailand has recently disclosed that fourteen Thai banks will join hands to develop a shared trade finance platform based on blockchain technology.

Blockchain: the Banks are on board

Within the fourteen, the big four banks, Bangkok BankKrung Thai BankSiam Commercial Bank and Kasikornbank are on board and are scheduled to launch electronic letters of guarantee on a shared blockchain platform. The service will firstly be tested and come online eventually by September of this year.

The system was initially launched by Kasikornbank in collaboration with U.S. computing company IBM last July. It is built on a distributed ledger framework called Hyperledger Fabric provided by the Linux Foundation. State enterprises are already using letters of guarantee issued through the system, according to the bank.

The group would be similar to the Digital Trade Chain consortium that was formed last year by seven European banks such as Deutsche Bank and HSBC to develop a shared trade finance platform using blockchain.

“With this infrastructure sharing, banks do not need to invest on their own,” Bank of Thailand Gov. Veerathai Santiprabhob told reporters Monday. “Interoperability enhances efficiency, reduces costs in our financial sector and addresses the needs of the consumer and the business sector.”

Letters of Guarantee

The new blockchain system will digitise the documents and shorten the process to as little as 30 minutes. Previously in Thailand this was a lengthy process and sometimes took a few days to process!

Initially, the blockchain service will cover letters of guarantee issued for bidders in state-owned enterprise auctions and other domestic trading. Seven corporates, including the state-owned Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand and industrial conglomerate Siam Cement Group, are set to use the system. The companies will be able to store their suppliers’ letters of guarantee using the cloud system and obtain updated documents whenever they want.

Red Light Therapy Health Benefits and How to Get It

Still wondering about the Red Light Therapy phenomenon?

KEEP READING…

As seen on the Bulletproof Blog, Red light therapy, also known as photo-bio-modulation (PBM), has been around for around 40 years – ever since the invention of lasers.

“Red light therapy uses certain wavelengths of light to restore, repair, and protect tissue that is either injured, degenerating, or at risk of dying. While varying wavelengths affect the body differently, as far as healing with red light is concerned, the most effective wavelengths range from 630-670 and 810-880.”

But this is how it really works…

The PBM wavelengths affect bodily cells on a biochemical level by increasing mitochondrial function. This is the ability to produce energy in the cells. The more that the cells can produce energy, the better the body can function. When red light wavelengths are used on the skin’s surface, they penetrate 8-10 millimetres deep into the skin. So depending upon where the red light is used (head or knee, for instance), all of the surrounding skin layers, blood vessels, lymph pathways, nerves, and even hair follicles are affected.

The Benefits of Red Light Therapy (PBM)

Red light therapy works from the inside-out to enhance and increase mitochondrial function in cells. Therefore this, leads to several skin benefits. Red light reduces skin inflammation, smooths skin tone, repairs sun damage, fades scars and stretch marks, and even builds collagen in the skin which in turn reduces wrinkles. It also heals wounds and can prevent recurring cold sores or herpes simplex (some of us were burdened). PBM works on the lymphatic system to improve your body’s detoxification abilities by increasing blood flow. It may even stimulate hair growth in your hair follicles (check it out ladies!).

At the radiological department at Ullevål Hospital, sickness absence fell by 50%, and employees felt fresher and more motivated, both at leisure and at work.  All life on earth takes its energy from the sun. This has been the case since the first single-celled organisms were made 3.5 billion years ago. That’s how it is today too. The human being born out of the evolution’s cradle 200,000 years ago was created to live and move outdoors. Since the Industrial Revolution 200 years ago, humans began to spend most of their lives indoors. With welfare and social development, new diseases and indoor environmental problems also followed.

SOLAR ENERGY NEWS REPORT!

EGAT says the Market Quota will now end

Energy policymakers are currently planning to end the twenty year quota regime. They will do this by expanding the state-controlled power generation business to private sector competition, quoted by the Energy Minister himself Mr Siri Jirapongphun.

Thailand will now be removing the special quota from state-owned Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT). “Thailand needs to increase power supply and allowing the market to set its price will be essential to developing the power generation industry,” he said.
The deregulation of power generation will be applied to both the renewable energy industry as well as the fossil fuels industry.

The energy price is currently at an average of 3.6 baht per kilowatt hour.

By JUNE 2018, policymakers have planned to open an auction under the small power producer programme. This will involve semi-firm power purchase agreements with a total of 269 megawatts.
The move is aimed at advancing the efficiency of the sector, of EGAT, and of other state-owned energy firms like PTT Plc.

Details of the deregulation programme will become finalised in the new national Power Development Plan (PDP). This is currently being revised by the relevant department.  The new PDP, set to be finalised in March 31, will replace the existing PDP, which was drafted in 2014.

The current rules that state that one fifth of the country’s power must come from renewable energy sources by the year 2036 may also undergo major revisions. At present, renewable energy sources in Thailand account for 12% of the country’s power.

Companies from the private sector and EGAT (which recently expressed interest in importing LNG), will now be allowed to enter the business, which previously fell under the monopoly of PTT.

Will Thailand be the next major electric vehicles manufacturer?

Incredible news has graced us recently with the word out that Thailand will have 1.2 million electric cars on the roads by 2036!

Thailand is quietly but successfully becoming the forefront in electric vehicle (EV) production and technology in the ASEAN region. They have recently received investment from some of the biggest auto manufactures namely BMW, Nissan, and Toyota.

The Thai authorities are completely on board with this move toward environmentally friendly vehicles. This is shown in the waiving of tariffs for imported EVs, offering incentives for EV part manufacturing and assembly, as well as promoting the establishment of charging stations nationwide, as we have seen in one of our previous blog posts: EA to build charging stations.

The approved tax incentives will promote production of 3 types of EVs. These include hybrid electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, and battery electric vehicles.

Thailand Emerges As New Production Hub For Electric Vehicles

The goal for Thailand is to get 1.2 million EVs on its roads within the next two decades. To reach that goal, the government will implement the following measures:

  • Charging stations to be installed this year
  • Introduction of 20 public electric buses next month and 200 by the end of next year
  • At least 5,000 imported EVs per year will receive full tax exemption, says the Kasikorn Research Centre (via the Bangkok Post)
