Disruption Ripe in Vancouver with Arrival of TED and Tech Company, nTrust

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - March 18, 2014) - Yesterday marked the official launch of the TED Conference in Vancouver. As one of the most recognized conferences in the world, TED seeks to disrupt the traditional way of doing things in favor of innovation and pushing conventional boundaries.

While Vancouverites can expect to catch a glimpse of this year's TED speakers around the city, including Bill and Melinda Gates, Elizabeth Gilbert, and Chris Hadfield, they may also encounter local technology company nTrust - who are taking to the streets this week to share their own disruptive technology, Cloud Money.

A mobile and online platform that allows members to store money and make payments instantly from across the table or across the world, nTrust's Cloud Money eliminates hefty transaction fees - for both consumers sending money internationally and businesses transacting locally - essentially saving members thousands of dollars per year.

This revolution is consistent with the theme of this year's TED Conference, which focuses on life-changing developments made over the past 30 years and aims to make predictions surrounding future developments needed for further advancement. To nTrust, nowhere is disruption more essential than in the financial industry where it is needed not only to help ignite transformation of the economy but also to improve the lives of consumers around the globe.

"Nowhere is innovation needed more than in the financial space," says Rod Hsu, CXO at nTrust. "There is a world-wide appetite to disrupt the current system with a globally accepted and regulated platform and the time is now."

To educate the public about Cloud Money, the nTrust team is hitting the streets in Vancouver armed with an abundance of giveaways. To find out where and what they'll be doing to celebrate alongside the TED festivities visit Facebook and Twitter. Additionally, Canadian residents who register for a Cloud Money account before March 31st will be eligible to win an iPad mini. Click here for contest details.
