Blockchain Startup COSS and Romania’s Eva Energy Join Forces to Enable Cryptocurrency Bill Payments in the Country


Blockchain Startup COSS and Romania’s Eva Energy Join Forces to Enable Cryptocurrency Bill Payments in the Country

C.O.S.S. PTE LTD partners with Romanian energy supply company Eva Energy to make cryptocurrency bill payments a reality for the public.

PR Newswire

BUCHAREST, Romania, July 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ – Romanian pro-blockchain energy supply company, Eva Energy has announced that it will now be accepting gas and electricity bill payments in multiple cryptocurrencies. C.O.S.S.PTE LTD (COSS), the Singaporean blockchain company has partnered with the energy company, providing the payment solution necessary to make this breakthrough possible. Eva Energy is an outstanding player in Romania’s energy sector, renowned for its progressive thinking and passion for innovation. It is pioneering in cryptocurrency adoption within the industry.

Eva Energy has been pursuing innovation since its conception in 2012. The company was founded by Austrian entrepreneur Cristian Hagmann, an expert in voltage networks, IT energy services, network automation research, and energy market analysis. Hagmann has over 20 years of business experience within the respective fields. The company has been destined to be a pathfinder in subscription based power supply in Romania.

Explaining the background of Eva Energy, the company’s CEO Christian Hagmann said,

“In 2010, I was invited to a conference in Romania to speak about smart networks. Back then we were catering IT energy services and network automation research. We conducted the energy market analysis in Romania and discovered that the demand for smart metering was strong, that’s how Eva Energy was founded. To enhance its development, we applied an innovative approach to portfolio structuring, and were the first ones who tried it in Romania,”

In 2015 Eva Energy started re-thinking its payment media, partnering with PayPoint to enable payments for its bills via terminals in convenience stores across Romania, effectively reducing fees. More recently the company launched ‘energy cards’ to introduce its 70K+ customers to flexible payment methods.

By 2019, the company aims to cater gas and electricity to 300K customers, providing them with the option to pay their monthly bills in any cryptocurrency offered through the COSS payment gateway. According to its 5-year business plan, Eva Energy estimates to generate EUR 55.5M as a result of geographical expansion and growth by establishing distributor networks and direct operation in selective markets. The company will also aim to raise EUR 5M by issuing new products. Eva Energy also targets human resource investment and investment in assets to support its plans for growth and capitalization. For this purpose, the company will soon issue BITWATT, an energy trading platform and token.

Eva Energy is currently enabling cryptocurrency billing with not only Bitcoin but an entire array of cryptocurrencies. The provider of such an advanced solution is COSS that has developed a payment gateway / POS for its customers accepting cryptocurrency payments for their services and products to boost the adoption rate. COSS is currently supporting a broad range of cryptocurrencies on its exchange including BTC, ETH, LTC, DASH, XEM, LSK, PAY, BNT, SNM, VRS, ARK, TaaS, CVC.

The COSS platform continues to extend support for new coins on a frequent basis. There are times when a new cryptocurrency is added to the platform each week. In the coming days, it plans to include support for DDF and other tokens. Cristian Hagmann has joined the COSS advisory board as Corporate Strategy Advisor prior to the presale of COSS tokens. The tokens will be officially available for purchase from August 8, 2017, during the Token Swap (ICO). The two companies signed an MOU to seal their strategic partnership and to contribute to each other’s expansive development plans.

Giant Spoon Named An Ad Age Small Agency Of The Year

Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) July 21, 2017

Giant Spoon was named an Ad Age Small Agency of the Year at an awards ceremony held in Nashville, TN during the Small Agency Conference this week. Hundreds of advertising agencies enter this awards show which recognizes the agency’s body of work, culture and growth, as well as stand-out campaigns. The Spoon brought home the gold for best west coast agency and won silver for best B2B campaign for HP’s “The Wolf.”

"We've spent four years building an agency filled with talented people who wanted the freedom to create anything. Not just ads,” said Jon Haber, co-founder of Giant Spoon. “This award is validation for the brave, weird, and wonderful team at Giant Spoon."

Ad Age was especially impressed by Giant Spoon’s work for clients including HP and GE as well as the agency’s strong culture. The agency of the year awards are judged by the Ad Age editors and journalists while the awards for specific campaigns are judged by a group of outside creative directors, many of whom have won small agency awards in previous years.

“This awards show has given us an opportunity to plug into the small agency community,” noted Trevor Guthrie, co-founder of Giant Spoon. “We want to support other start ups and believe some of the industry’s thorniest issues may be solved through new ideas coming from smaller independent shops.”

Giant Spoon’s proven ability to solve marketing challenges has made it one of the most awarded new agencies in the world with wins including Cannes Lions, Adweek Media Plan of the Year, Webbys, Media All-Star and Creative Agency of the Year by Media.

"This recognition would not be possible without our fearless clients who took a chance on a small agency and allowed our teams to push the boundaries of creativity," said Marc Simons, co-founder of Giant Spoon.

The Ad Age small agency awards show was designed to identify up and coming agencies and recognizes those with 150 employees or less. Ad Age is widely recognized as one of the leading voices in marketing and media.


Giant Spoon is an innovation-driven marketing agency that focuses on idea-centric strategy and lives where digital, content, and innovation collide. With offices in New York and Los Angeles, the agency works with companies like: GE, HP, Mass Mutual, NBC, Pinterest, WB and Spotify. Giant Spoon is comprised of heavily awarded A-list disruptors with backgrounds in media, innovation, brand strategy, and creative.
