Moonstake Wallet Now Supports Staking of ORBS

SINGAPORE, Apr 20, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - Today, staking of Orbs's native token, ORBS, is officially available on Moonstake's Web Wallet. ORBS fuel all activities on the Orbs blockchain including smart contracts, transaction fees, and consensus-based storage is currently ranked #5 in the Top 10 trending crypto coins by CryptoCrunchApp. Additionally, Moonstake is now officially a Guardian for Orbs Universe to help facilitate network security.




Now Moonstake's wallet users can hold, send, receive, and stake their ORBS to receive rewards with the best user experience through one single click. After Cosmos, IRISnet, Ontology, Harmony, Tezos, Cardano, Qtum, Polkadot, Quras, Centrality and Orbs became the 11th available staking coin on Moonstake Wallet.

Moonstake started the staking business last year with the aim to create the largest staking network in Asia. Since then, we have developed the most user-friendly Web Wallet and Mobile Wallet (iOS/Android) with support for over 2000 cryptocurrencies. After a full-scale operation launched in August 2020, Moonstake's total staking assets has grown rapidly to reach $900 Million, allowing Moonstake to become one of the top 10 staking providers globally.

Moonstake and ORBS entered into a strategic partnership in March, 2021. Through this partnership, Moonstake actively developed support for the staking of ORBS, Orbs' official token, on Moonstake Wallet, as well as participating further in the Orbs blockchain ecosystem. The two parties will also host community building programs, research, training, events, and conferences with the goal to increase awareness and adoption of Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology in the Banking and Finance Industry. Moonstake and Orbs will discuss further potential provision of consulting services to financial institutions in the regions of Southeast Asia and Middle East.

How to stake ORBS on Moonstake Wallet

Here's a simple 3-step process to stake ORBS with Moonstake Wallet:
1. Register your Moonstake Web wallet (https://wallet.moonstake.io)
2. From the wallet screen, select ORBS and click the "Stake Now" button.
3. Confirm the staking information, then click the "Staking" button and enter your wallet password.

How ORBS Staking Works:
- Hold ORBS Token and no minimum amount for staking.
- Agree to lock in and stake ORBS.

What is Guardians Role:
Guardians play a central role in the Orbs PoS model - they are expected to be key participants within the Orbs Universe, who enforce the security of the network, align with the long term Orbs vision and actively work to make this vision a reality. A core role of the Guardians is to review the Validators, monitor their operations and ensure proper network operation and security by approving Validators that follow the protocol correctly.

How to get Rewards of ORBS staking:
Token holders that delegate to an active Guardian are rewarded in proportion to their stake. Annual reward is up to 8% of the Delegators staked tokens (subject to an 80M Orbs Token cap on total rewards).

* Delegators are ORBS token holders who assign their voting weight (stake) to Guardians, empowering them to maintain security and uphold the long term vision of the ecosystem.

How ORBS unstaking works:
If token holders want to send an asset that is currently staked, they will need to unstake it first. The unstaking of tokens will take a full 14 days before they become available, therefore you will not be able to send the tokens immediately. The period during which the tokens cannot be transferred is called the "lock period".
Moonstake looks forward to deeper cooperation with Orbs to increase our market presence in the key regions of Japan, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East, as well as bring the diverse ecosystem of staking coins to user communities worldwide.

Moonstake was recently established to develop a staking pool protocol to satisfy increasing demands in regional and global blockchain markets. Moonstake develops a staking pool protocol and provides business services through partners and companies.

Moonstake aims to be the largest staking pool network in Asia by providing an active environment for crypto asset holders.

Industry's reputed advisors, such as Lisk and Lawrence Lim of RAMP DEFI support Moonstake's innovative journey.

With a full-scale operation launched in August 2020, we expanded our business and as of now, our total staking assets exceeded over USD 900 Million. https://www.moonstake.io/

Moonstake WalletがORBSステーキングを提供開始

SINGAPORE, Apr 20, 2021 - (JCN Newswire) - Moonstake(ムーンステーク)ウェブ版ウォレットで、Orbs(オーブス)ブロックチェーンのネイティブトークンであるORBSのステーキングが正式に利用可能になりました。ORBSはスマートコントラクト、取引手数料、コンセンサスベースのデータ保存など、Orbsブロックチェーン上のすべての主要機能を利用ための手数料の役割を持つネイティブトークンであり、現在CryptoCrunchAppによる注目のトレンド暗号資産トップ10のうち、5位にランクされています。さらに、Moonstakeは正式に、OrbsUniverseのネットワークセキュリティの促進を支援する役割であるガーディアンになりました。




Moonstakeのウォレットユーザーは、ORBSを保持、送信、受信、およびステーキング参加に、ワンクリックでアクセスできるようになり、最高のユーザー体験とともに報酬を受け取れるようになります。Cosmos、IRISnet、Ontology、Harmony、Tezos、Cardano、Qtum、Polkadot、Quras、Centralityに続いて、OrbsはMoonstake Walletで11番目に利用可能なステーキングコイン銘柄になりました。

Moonstakeはアジア最大のステーキングネットワーク構築を目標に掲げ、2020年にステーキング事業を開始しました。それ以来、2,000を超える暗号通貨をサポートする最もユーザーフレンドリーなWebウォレットとモバイルウォレット(iOS/Android)を開発してきました。2020年8月に本格的な事業が開始された後、ムーンステークの総ステーキング資産は急速に成長、約900億円にまで達し、世界トップ10のステーキングプロバイダーの1つになりました。

MoonstakeとORBSは、2021年3月に戦略的パートナーシップを締結しました。このパートナーシップを通じて、Moonstakeは、Moonstake WalletへのOrbsの公式トークンであるORBSのステーキングのサポートを積極的に開発し、Orbsブロックチェーンエコシステムへと参加しました。また両者は、銀行および金融業界におけるブロックチェーンおよび分散型台帳テクノロジーの認識や導入を推進することを目的として、コミュニティ構築プログラム、リサーチ、トレーニング、イベント、カンファレンスを主催します。MoonstakeとOrbsは、今後も東南アジアや中東地域の金融機関に対する将来的なコンサルティングサービス提供の可能性について意見交換していく予定です。

MoonstakeWalletにORBSをステーキングする方法

簡単な3ステップでMoonstakeWalletでORBSをステーキングできます。
1. Moonstake Webウォレットを登録します(https://wallet.moonstake.io)
2. ウォレット画面からORBSを選択し、「StakeNow」ボタンをクリックします。
3. ステーキング情報を確認し、「ステーキング」ボタンをクリックしてウォレットのパスワードを入力します。

ORBSステーキングの仕組み:
- ORBSトークンを保持していればよく、最低必要額はありません。
- ORBSをロックし、ステークすることに同意します。

ガーディアンの役割とは:
ガーディアンは、Orbs PoSモデルで中心的な役割を果たします。ガーディアンは、ネットワークのセキュリティを強化し、長期的なOrbsビジョンに沿って、このビジョンの実現に積極的に取り組むOrbsUniverse内の主要な参加者となることを期待されています。ガーディアンの主な役割は、Orbsブロックチェーンのプロトコルに正しく従う検証ツール(バリデータ)を確認、監視、評価することで、ネットワークの運用やセキュリティを確保することです。

ORBSステーキングの報酬を取得する方法:
トークン所有者は、アクティブなガーディアンに対してトークンを委任し、ステークした額に比例して報酬が与えられます。年間報酬は、委任者がステークしたトークン総額の最大8%です(報酬の合計に8000万ORBSトークンの上限が適用されます)。

*ORBSトークン所有者は委任者(デリゲーター)の役割として、投票の重み(ステーク)をガーディアンに割り当て、セキュリティを維持し、エコシステムの長期ビジョンを実現・維持する権限を与えることになります。

ORBSステーキング解除の仕組み:
トークン所有者が現在ステークされている資産を送信したい場合は、最初にそれをステーク解除する必要があります。トークンのステークを解除した後、トークンが移動可能になるまでに14日かかるため、トークンをすぐに送信することはできません。トークンを送信できない期間を「ロック期間」と呼びます。
Moonstakeは、Orbsとのより深い協力により、日本、東南アジア、中東の主要地域での市場での存在感を高め、世界中のユーザーコミュニティにステーキングコインの多様なエコシステムをもたらすことを楽しみにしています。

Moonstakeについて

Moonstakeは世界各地域のブロックチェーン市場で高まる需要に答えるステーキングプールプロトコルを開発することを目的に、近年設立されました。Moonstakeはステーキングプールの技術プロトコルを開発し、パートナーや企業にビジネスサービスを提供しています。

Moonstakeは暗号資産保有者にアクティブに活動しやすい環境を提供することで、アジア最大のステーキングプールネットワークになることを目指しています。Moonstakeのパートナーシップ計画の公開は、アジアで急成長しつづける分散型台帳技術(DLT)のエコシステム全体に及ぶ、主要なプラットフォーム提供者と良好な関係を構築していく上での、重要なプロセスです。これまでに発表されたパートナーには、ステーキング促進の提携としてEmurgo(エマーゴ)、Ontology、NEO(ネオ)に加え、日本最大のブロックチェーンハブであるBinarystar(バイナリースター)、シンガポール上場企業のOIO Holdings Limited(SGX:OIO)があります。OIO(オー・アイ・オー)はシンガポールの上場企業です。Lisk(リスク)やRAMP DEFI(ランプ・ディファイ)のLawrence Limといった業界で著名なアドバイザーによって、Moonstakeの革新的な活動は支援されています。

2020年8月に本格的にサービス提供を開始し、事業を拡大しており、現在ではステーキングされた総資産額は900億円以上の実績を持っています。 https://www.moonstake.io/

Orbsについて

Orbsは大衆向けのアプリケーションだけではなく、エンタープライズレベルの技術拡張性の両方に対応可能なセキュリティとサポートを提供できるよう設計された、オープンソースで無料のパブリックブロックチェーン・インフラストラクチャです。Orbsブロックチェーンネットワークは日々ますます拡大しています。これは、様々な営利企業によって開発された許可型のアプリケーションを支援することに加え、純粋な分散型アプリのサポートや、分散型金融アプリ(DeFi)を立ち上げる主要なプラットフォームとなることで推進されています。Orbsは2017年に設立され、30人以上の専任チームによってイスラエルのテルアビブ、イギリスのロンドン、シンガポール、韓国のソウルのオフィスにて開発されています。Orbsは2018年のGartnerの「Cool Vendor in Blockchain Technology」に選出されました。 https://www.orbs.com/

Smart, Easy, Safe, Global: Bitpapa Launches Telegram Bot for Crypto Exchange

DUBAI, Apr 19, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - Cryptocurrency exchange may be a complicated and challenging process for a crypto rookie. Users may waste their time looking for suitable tools and menus to send/receive the funds due to a non-friendly UI. Moreover, sending funds always means the fear of loss for a user as there is no guarantee the transaction would be safe and fair. Crypto transactions may also take time which impacts the transaction rate, along with the fees and commissions.

The transaction speed always depends on the network load. But any delay may be crucial here. Meanwhile, the number of users involved in the cryptomarket keeps growing as the Bitcoin rate boost heats up their interest. In most cases, people prefer to use Telegram, searching for the information on the cryptomarket, as this messenger involves a lot of other crypto enthusiasts, chats, channels and communities.

Recently, Bitpapa has launched a Telegram bot @Bitpapa_bot for safe cryptocurrency exchange operations. This is a technical solution providing a convenient way to quickly buy & sell cryptos. In fact, Bitpapa is a global cryptocurrency exchange platform based in Dubai which has a full-fledged mobile app offering quick & safe crypto trades. The project team made crypto exchanges smart, safe and easy thanks to an intuitive UI, escrow, and trusted environment.

Thus, Bitpapa is a P2P platform for crypto exchange. It helps to find a buyer or a seller of Bitcoin, Ethereum, or USDT directly. No need to search for the most profitable exchanger and compare rates in several places. A user can buy cryptocurrency with his banking card from another person with no extra fees and overpayments.

The platform offers various payment methods like wire transfer, card payment, electronic wallets. A user can create an account with deposit and start the exchange. Besides, every user has a rating, feedback and trade terms. Before engaging in any transaction, the user can check the seller's account and make a decision.

Any crypto trade can be started in Telegram bot and the user can continue it on the website or in the app. This also works the other way: a user starts the trade on the website or in the app and finishes it in Telegram bot. It provides a cross-platform integration which is a convenient way for users to perform transactions as they may want.

The exchange process within Bitpapa is easy. First, the user inputs the necessary amount to buy/sell cryptos. Then the system provides the list of suitable exchange offers. The user can choose the offer by its rating, feedback, history, country and some other features. All the transactions are carried out quickly. No fees or commissions involved. The safety within the platform is guaranteed by the escrow. Once a user sends a request, the specified amount will be charged from the seller's balance. Then the crypto will be locked in the escrow system for a certain period of time specified by the buyer. During this time the buyer should make a money transfer to the seller. As the seller confirms the money transfer, the crypto funds are released from the escrow system. The buyer receives the crypto and leaves a feedback. The users evaluate and score each other after the trade. Everyone has a certain rating, depending on the transaction history and transaction success. This rating allows others to make the right choice. It creates a trusted environment within the platform and decreases the fear of loss and other risks. Moreover, there's a support group and help desk operating 24/7. They are eager to give a hand on any relevant issue.

The Bitpapa project team plan to add Monero and Litecoin for the exchange operations. Now they're working on the integration of different crypto-banking systems so that any user from any place in the world would be able to quickly buy and sell cryptocurrency, making it available to anyone. The idea of the project is to help users to change the money freely, without banks or financial institutions, and thus achieving financial independence and success. This inspires the team to protect their users' accounts and funds, solve their problems, and provide them with fast & safe crypto transactions.

Tech leaders in Australia are gathering virtually to discuss the roadmap for the Future of AI in the Country

Australia, Apr 19, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - World AI Show is gearing up to virtually connect the most influential voices in Australia's AI space this April. Notable speakers include the likes of Dr Kate Harrington, Head of Strategic Digital Initiatives, NSW Government Chief Information & Digital Office; Edward Santow, Human Rights Commissioner, Australian Human Rights Commission; Manohar Esarapu, CIO, City of Port Phillip & more.




Monday, 19 April 2021: Having hosted multiple high-level conferences across the world, World AI Show (WAIS) has established itself as the world?s biggest and elite AI show series. While it has proven itself as the quintessential AI event, World AI Show has a reputation of consistently getting global experts, investors, and cloud entrepreneurs - all under one roof.

Why Australia?

"We generally talk about emerging technologies and how they impact society. But we have never seen a technology move as fast as AI and its impact on society and technology. In today's world, the playing field is poised to become a lot more competitive. Businesses that don't deploy AI and data to help them innovate will be at a huge disadvantage," said Mithun Shetty, CEO of Trescon.

Taking place on 22 April 2021, World AI Show will feature keynotes from thought-leaders and industry experts, private networking sessions, private video meetings and more.

The show will be hosted on the virtual events platform Vmeets to help participants network and conduct business in an interactive and immersive virtual environment.

China Brilliant Global Limited (8026.HK) may own the world's first "Supply Chain Digital Bank". What will the value be?

HONG KONG, Apr 19, 2021 - (JCN Newswire) - Recently, China Brilliant Global Limited (8026.HK) (CBG) voluntarily announced that its subsidiary Brillink Bank Corporation Limited ("Brillink") was granted by Astana Financial Services Authority (AFSA) in Kazakhstan Astana International Financial Centre (AIFC) for an official full banking licence. According to announcement made earlier, Brillink was granted an In-Principle Approval Letter (the "AIP Letter") on 4 December 2020 to be formed for a licence to carry on banking services. The issuance of official licence to Brillink has demonstrated regulator's confidence in Brillink's development of banking business.

Since last year, the "black swan" COVID-19 has swept the world and has made a huge impact on various countries. Hence, new trends have emerged. The penetration of digitization and intelligence has accelerated. As for financial sector, the development of digital banking is booming, which brings incredible business opportunities and becomes a new battlefield in the financial industry.

CBG combines the existing real economy business with the new digital bank to build a new scenario for the digital bank focus on supply chain. According to the company's previous announcement, the bank is expected to start trial operation in the second half of 2021, and may own the world's first digital bank focusing on supply chain finance.

In addition, the latest review result of Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) shows that CBG has been included in the MSCI Hong Kong Micro Index in November 2020. Such relevant adjustment was made and be effective on 30 November 2020, after the market closed.

Statistics show that the MSCI Hong Kong Micro Index is constructed in a comprehensive and consistent manner and is one of the most widely used stock benchmarks used by institutional investors to measure the performance of investment portfolios. The index is currently covering thousands of stocks with good operating performance and potential from different regions and different market capitalizations. In other words, being included in the market benchmark index reflects the capital market's full confidence in CBG's development and prospects.

You can never imagine CBG's business development strategy before reading the news mentioned above. Now, how should we view the real investment value hidden behind it?

Obtained A Full Banking License to Create A New Imagination

First, let's sort out the basic situation of the proposed digital bank so that you can clarify its business positioning and audience.

According to an announcement made by CBG, it acquired the issued share capital of CBG Fintech Holdings Limited twice in 2020 through its wholly-owned subsidiary CFSG, and finally obtained 80% of the issued share capital of CBG Fintech Holdings Limited in order to expand its banking business.

According to public information, Kazakhstan is striving to build AIFC into a leading financial centre in Asia, and through China's "One Belt, One Road" initiative to develop AIFC into an important offshore RMB centre. As a result, the digital bank for supply chain financing will have significant location investment advantages and market competitive advantages after its landing.

From the perspective of market competition, leading financial institutions such as China Development Bank, China Construction Bank, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, Bank of China, and China International Capital Corporation have all settled in AIFC. Shanghai Stock Exchange and Silk Road Fund have also jointly invested in AIFC stock exchange (AIX), and owns 25% and 5% of AIX respectively. Possessing a full bank license issued by AIFC enables Brillink to become one of the formal, and global-oriented international financial institutions, and enables it to provide customers with one-stop supply chain financial services.

Besides, according to related research reports, the average online channel usage of global digital bank users has increased by more than 35% in the past three years, especially in Asia, where online transactions are well developed with digital bank customers reaching 1.7 billion in 2020. Moreover, after the outbreak of the epidemic, powerful companies continued to promote digital transformation and upgrading. In addition, with the booming of "New Infrastructure" led by national policies, the novel form of digital banking has been accelerated in the B-end and C-end at the same time.

However, the current market situation is that most of the leading companies have concentrated on the C-end market, while few companies will really focus on the B-end market and have the ability to take the lead in the B-end market.

We believe that digital banks with the abilities to develop B-end business are more likely to stand out in the market. Undoubtedly, it is a good timing for Brillink to intervene at this moment.

Specifically, Brillink's B-end business covers the entire supply chain, mainly for high-quality customers in the IC and 5G industries, and has certain differences between the inclusive financial model that combines with the more common individuals and SME audiences in the market. Digital banks with such a background are even rarer. Under the wave of empowering the real economy, they are more likely to seize market opportunities.

As mentioned before, Brillink is the one of the few fintech company that will start digital banking at AIFC and obtains full license for deposits and loans. In view of this, the company's digital banking business is likely to give priority to seizing the market, rapidly expanding the company's sources of income, and opening up a new imagination for CBG to the market.

Strategic Planning and Resources Create High Synergies, Resulting in Strong and Promising Future

As we all know, to provide financial digital banking services for related companies by focusing on the supply chain can better serve the real economy and promote more efficient trade operation and circulation. The development path of focusing on advanced and technology-led high-end manufacturing or smart manufacturing industry chains such as 5G communications and electronic consumer product manufacturing, will conforms to the general trend of national development and the huge market of independent and self-controlled semiconductors. With its technical and capital barriers, and the threshold of high efficiency, the financial supply chain digital banking business have important characteristics, including irreplaceable and large-scale output.

Other than the competitive environment of the industry, investors also need to focus on the synergies brought by the supply chain resources of CBG.

Mr. Zhang Chunhua, the actual controller of CBG, is also the actual controller of China Brilliant Supply Chain Services Co. Limited("CB"). CB, founded in 2006, is one of the first supply chain companies in the country to position on industrial supply chains. CB is the first batch of advanced technology service enterprises in Shenzhen. In recent years, it has won the honour of the best innovative enterprise in China's supply chain management. It has won the China IC market supply chain service award for four consecutive years. It has also been recognized as a national service-oriented manufacturing demonstration platform, which has fully affirmed CB's value and outstanding performance in serving the industry, and demonstrated CB's position as a leader in the supply chain field.

In the past 15 years since CB's establishment, its cumulative revenue has exceeded 113 billion dollars, cumulative tax payment has exceeded 40.5 billion dollars (including tariffs), and the total import and export of general trade has exceeded 55.6 billion US dollars. Its business covers more than 200 large and medium-sized cities in China, and reaching North America, South America, South Asia, Africa and other countries and regions. It has served over 10,000 high-quality customers in the upstream and downstream of the 5G, IC manufacturing, mobile phone manufacturing and other multi-industry chains, by providing one-stop supply chain services including cross-border comprehensive management services, global logistics solutions, meticulous industrial storage and financial supply chain.

It is worth noting that with such a large business scale and an operation mode of high proportion of supply chain financing, CB has an extremely low rate of bad debts since its opening, and its risk management and control capabilities are evident. These excellent customers and valuable business experience will be passed on to Brillink and its digital banking business with great probability. These above key points can be reasonably deduced, and the more important ones can be reflected in the following aspects.

On the one hand, the digital banking business can give full play to CB's ability of transforming high-end B-end customers, including Xiaomi, Samsung, Siemens, Panasonic, ASM, Transsion, Huaqin, CVTE, Changhong, Cambrian and other top customer resources.

On the other hand, the bad debt rate of import and export loans has always been low, which is 65 times lower than the bad debt rate of general corporate loans. The cloud computing technology and the analysis ability of corporate credit rating big data that CB has accumulated for 15 years can provide the basic support for its digital banking business. From the top to the bottom of the capital supply end, to the capital demand end, it has formed a closed loop of the supply chain financial industry, and thus the risks of engaging in this type of loan business are relatively more controllable.

From the above points of view, CB's strategic planning of digital bank business can create a high synergy development effect with the Group's existing supply chain business. It is not just a simple coincidence of customer groups. The Group's past import and export supply chain business also involved a large amount of supply chain financing. CB has mature experience in trade settlement, risk control, and specific operations. These are all available for reference for Brillink, and attain its business transformation smoothly.

In addition, there are bound to be a large number of potential customers in the customer resource network that the company has built, such as the many upstream and downstream suppliers of high-end industrial giants. Under such "direct and indirect" conversion model, the company's future customer volume and market space will be immeasurable.

With the support of a good front-end business platform like CB, the digital banking business of CBG will never lack the stamina for development.

Core Assets Support High Valuations and Reveal Market Investment Value

With reference to the previous performance of financial platforms driven by technology, there have always been giants and unicorns, and no "dwarfs".

We have sorted out the valuations of a number of digital banks with financing records, where we can see that many companies have the characteristics of good profitability and super high valuations, especially Chinese companies that operate online business like WeBank.

Looking back at the fundamentals of Brillink.

In terms of business logic, its parent group's supply chain business gathers high-quality customers in fast-growing and highly professional industries such as 5G, IC manufacturing, and mobile phone manufacturing, with huge conversion opportunities. These can allow Brillink lower customer cost, sufficient customer stickiness and considerable room for growth. Furthermore, the purely online business model can effectively reduce service costs, eliminate high investment on offline branches and fixed asset, and reduce cost-to-income ratios. With the company's low bad debt rate under effective risk control, and high gross profit margins, the return on business investment (or return on net assets) is expected to be quite impressive.

Looking ahead, Brillink has a clear development path and high visibility. It will benefit from tides of the times and national policies, such as the increasingly active investment in the "Belt and Road" initiative, New Infrastructure, the trend of autonomous control of 5G and semiconductors, as well as its parent company's improving supply chain business services, with the increasing types and numbers of vertical industries and the re-expansion of service boundaries.

Therefore, we believe that CBG, to a certain extent, has the possibility of transferring to the Main Board and owns basic strength, due to its high-value core assets. As the first global/ Hong Kong stock with the concept of financial supply chain digital bank, it has a certain degree of scarcity, together with the imagination brought by its long-term development potential, there are many good reasons to judge that CBG's digital bank assets will eventually enjoy a valuation premium. Compared with its current valuation level, the premium space appears to be quite sufficient. Investors can follow up to the timing and announcement of continuing to attract strategic investors and the trend of smart money.

トヨタ、電動車のフルラインアップ化の一環として新EVシリーズ「TOYOTA bZ」を発表

Toyota City, Japan, Apr 19, 2021 - (JCN Newswire) - トヨタ自動車(株)(以下、トヨタ)は4月19日、電動車のフルラインアップ化の一環として新EVシリーズ「TOYOTA bZ(トヨタ ビーズィー)」を発表し、中国・上海モーターショーにて、シリーズ第一弾となる「TOYOTA bZ4X(トヨタ ビーズィーフォーエックス)」のコンセプト車両を初披露しました。

1. ホームプラネットの発想でSDGsに貢献 2050年カーボンニュートラル実現に向け、地球規模でチャレンジ

2018年、トヨタは、自動車会社からモビリティカンパニーへのモデルチェンジを宣言しました。誰もが同じ地球上で生活をしている中、「ホームプラネット」という視点で企業活動を推進し、安心して暮らすことができる地球を次の世代に受け継いでいく使命が私たちにはあります。こうした中、技術は人の幸せと健康に貢献するものでなければなりません。モノづくりで培った強みを活かし、CASEへの対応によるさらなる技術革新でクルマの可能性を拡げ、すべての人の移動を自由にするサービスの提供に向け取り組むとともに、これらの事業を通じてSDGsの達成に貢献したいと考えています。中でも、CASEの「E」、すなわち電動化を通じたCO2の排出量削減は地球規模の課題です。

今、2050年のカーボンニュートラルを目指す宣言が世界各国で打ち出されています。自動車産業におけるカーボンニュートラル実現には、再生可能エネルギーや充電インフラなどのエネルギー政策と、購入補助金、サプライヤー支援、電池リサイクルシステムなどの産業政策の一体的な運用が必要不可欠であり、各国政府や業界団体など様々なステークホルダーと連携した取り組みが必要です。トヨタはグローバルに事業活動を展開する上で、各国政府と、こうした電動化推進に向けた環境整備について相談しながら、ライフサイクル全体でのCO2削減に資する電動化戦略を推進してまいります。また、渉外活動がパリ協定の長期目標に整合しているかどうかのレビューと情報開示を年内に実施するなど、より多くのステークホルダーの皆様にご理解いただけるよう充実した情報開示にも努めてまいります。

2. サステナブル(持続可能)な移動手段をプラクティカル(実用的)な形で提供 CO2削減のため電動車のフルラインアップ化を推進;2025年には70車種程度へ

トヨタはこれまでもCO2排出量削減に取り組んできました。1993年には21世紀に地球に必要とされるクルマの姿を提案する「G21プロジェクト」を企画、その成果として1997年に、世界初の量産型ハイブリッドカー プリウスを導入しました。以降、「環境車は普及し、CO2削減に貢献してこそ初めて環境車としての意義がある」すなわちサステナブル(持続可能)な移動手段をプラクティカル(実用的)な形で提供するとの考えのもと、HV/PHV/EV/FCVという電動車のフルラインアップ化を推し進め、様々な選択肢を用意しています。各国・各地域で、お客様が要望される使用環境や航続距離、充電インフラの整備状況などが異なります。それぞれの事情に合わせ、お客様に「使いやすい、乗りたい」と感じて受け入れていただけるパワートレーンをご提供し、その結果、CO2排出量が削減されるということが重要です。その電動化の実績は、以下の通りです。

- 電動車販売累計は1700万台超(1997年~2021年2月末現在)
- CO2排出抑制効果は累計約1億4000万トン(1997年~2020年末現在)
- 2020年電動車のグローバル販売実績は、約195万台(トヨタ販売全体の23%、約4台に1台が電動車)
- 2010年~2019年の間で、約22%のCO2を削減(グローバル新車平均)
- 乗用車・商用車合わせHV45車種・PHV4車種・EV4車種・FCV2車種の計55車種の電動車をラインアップ(2020年末現在)

今後もお客様のニーズにお応えできるよう、2025年までに70車種程度にラインアップを拡充していきます。

3,「電動車のフルラインアップ化」の一環として2025年までにEV15車種 新EVシリーズTOYOTA bZは、2025年までに7車種を導入

トヨタは、電動車のフルラインアップ化の一環として2025年までにEV15車種を導入する計画を推進中で、そのうち新シリーズTOYOTA bZについては7車種を導入する計画です。

トヨタはライフサイクル全体でのCO2排出量削減という命題を踏まえつつ、EV導入にはEVならではの特長を生かすべきだと考えており、大きく分けて2つの方向性で導入しています。

1つは、「Mobility for All(すべての人に移動の自由を)」の実現に向け、電池のリユース・リサイクルの事業化やお客様向けのサービスなど、新しいビジネスモデルの構築を進めながら少人数・近距離の利用に焦点を置き、容量の小さな電池を搭載する超小型EVで、昨年12月に導入したC+podがこのタイプにあたります。

一方、新EVシリーズTOYOTA bZは、中国・米国・欧州など、EVの需要や再生可能エネルギーによる電力供給が多い地域で、多くのお客様に受け入れていただけることを目指しているEVです。bZはbeyond Zeroの略で、単なるZero Emissionを超えた価値をお客様にお届けしたいという想いを込めました。EV専用のプラットフォームをベースとし、以下のような特徴を有しています。

- より多くのお客様が安心して選んでいただけるよう、使用環境を考慮した航続距離
- EVならではの開放的で自由度の高い室内空間と、斬新な外観デザイン

なおTOYOTA bZシリーズについては、お客様のニーズに応じた様々な大きさ・スタイルのEVを導入することはトヨタだけでは困難であることから、それぞれ得意分野を持つパートナーの皆様と共同で開発を進めています。再生可能エネルギーを促進するエネルギー政策と連携することで、販売する各地域でお客様の選択の幅を広げ、一層のCO2排出量削減につなげたいと考えています。

4. SUBARUと共同開発、両社の強みを生かして誕生したTOYOTA bZ4X

TOYOTA bZ4Xは、TOYOTA bZシリーズ第一弾のEVで、パートナーの一社である株式会社SUBARU(以下、SUBARU)との共同開発によるSUVタイプのEVです。トヨタ、SUBARUで共同開発したe-TNGA EV専用プラットフォームを採用。電動化を得意とするトヨタ、すぐれたAWD技術を持つSUBARUが互いに強みを持ち寄り、快適かつ楽しめる走りを実現するEVとして、以下のような特徴を有しています。

- EV専用プラットフォームによる、ショートオーバーハング・ロングホイールベース化により、特徴的なスタイリングと、Dセグメントセダン並みの室内空間を実現。
- 操舵時に持ち変える必要がなく、広々としたスペースの演出にも寄与する異形ステアリングホイールと、意のままにスムーズな運転感覚をもたらすステアバイワイヤを採用。低いインストルメントパネルやステアリングホイール上方に配置したメーターによる開放感や視認性の向上とともに、更に安心・安全なドライビングに貢献。
- SUBARUと共同開発した新AWDシステムを採用。電動車ならではの素早いレスポンスを生かした安全で気持ちの良い走りと、高い走破性を実現。
- 回生エネルギーの活用に加え、停車中も賢く充電を行い、EVならではの環境性能をさらに上積みする、ソーラー充電システムを採用。冬場などでもお客様に不便を感じさせない航続距離を確保。

なお、TOYOTA bZ4Xは、日本と中国での生産を予定しており、2022年年央までにグローバルでの販売を開始する計画です。

Indonesian SOE Minister Erick Thohir Inaugurates PERTAMINA PRIDE

LAMPUNG, Indonesia, Apr 18, 2021 - (JCN Newswire) - State-Owned Enterprises (SOE) Minister Erick Thohir was at the Port of Semangka Bay, Kota Agung, Tanggamus Regency to inaugurate the PERTAMINA PRIDE, the Very Large Crude Carrier (VLCC) commissioned by Pertamina International Shipping (PIS), the shipping sub-holding of PT Pertamina.

The ceremony was held onboard, the Minister joined by Pertamina President Director Nicke Widyawati and Director of Logistics and Infrastructure Mulyono, PIS President Director Erry Widiastono and PIS President Commissioner A. Junaedy Ganieand, and representatives of Pertamina management in Lampung.

Minister Erick said state-owned enterprises must contribute to maintaining Indonesia's energy security, with its natural wealth and natural products, while Pertamina was expected to help transform its units amid rapid ongoing changes, such as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. "Pertamina must remember its heyday in the 70s, become a global player and be ready to compete based on good corporate governance," said the Minister.

As a consumer-oriented shipping company, PIS continues to strive to meet energy needs by continuing to produce various breakthroughs. One of these is the PERTAMINA PRIDE. Built at the Japan Marine United (JMU) Shipyard since 2018 and sailing since February 9, 2021, this giant tanker was handed over, able to carry out its duties to distribute energy in Indonesian waters.

The tanker, which has a capacity of 2 million barrels, is a tangible form of PIS's commitment to improving quality and service. The PERTAMINA PRIDE aims to simplify the flow of energy distribution and secure the supply of captive crude to the Pertamina refinery FOB Ras Tanura to Cilacap more efficiently so that it is ready to become the lifeblood of the national energy distribution.

PIS also supports ambitions to become the leading integrated logistics company in Asia, centred on petroleum with new growth industries, integrated logistics and services, and green energy business segments.

Junaedy Ganieand, and representatives of Pertamina management in Lampung.

Minister Erick said state-owned enterprises must contribute to maintaining Indonesia's energy security, with its natural wealth and natural products, while Pertamina was expected to help transform its units amid rapid ongoing changes, such as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. "Pertamina must remember its heyday in the 70s, become a global player and be ready to compete based on good corporate governance," said the Minister.

As a consumer-oriented shipping company, PIS continues to strive to meet energy needs by continuing to produce various breakthroughs. One of these is the PERTAMINA PRIDE. Built at the Japan Marine United (JMU) Shipyard since 2018 and sailing since February 9, 2021, this giant tanker was handed over, able to carry out its duties to distribute energy in Indonesian waters.

The tanker, which has a capacity of 2 million barrels, is a tangible form of PIS's commitment to improving quality and service. The PERTAMINA PRIDE aims to simplify the flow of energy distribution and secure the supply of captive crude to the Pertamina refinery FOB Ras Tanura to Cilacap more efficiently so that it is ready to become the lifeblood of the national energy distribution.

PIS also supports ambitions to become the leading integrated logistics company in Asia, centred on petroleum with new growth industries, integrated logistics and services, and green energy business segments. PIS formed a roadmap strategy of 3 phases, emphasizing the integration of PIS with other Pertamina subsidiaries, becoming an integrated logistics company in Indonesia, and becoming a sustainable and leading energy transportation company in the region.
