Rise in Cryptocurrency and Exchanges like IBGX.

SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE, August 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The number of cryptocurrencies and exchange platforms are increasing each year. Demand to buy and sell is also growing as the number of cryptocurrencies and trading platforms increase.

There are currently 1,568 different cryptocurrencies available, as at 21st March, 2018. This breaks down to 654 tokens and 914 coins. It all started with bitcoin, which was first released on January 9, 2009, and various versions launched in the following years. From December 2013 to the end of 2017, the number of cryptocurrencies increased from 40 to 1,273 – a 3,083% increase.

The number of transactions on the blockchain have dramatically increased over time.

On August 8, 2015, Ethereum made its way onto the world map. They have recorded 2,881 transactions and has been growing in popularity ever since.

Since cryptocurrency first launched in 2009 with Bitcoin, average trade values – the average of all cryptocurrency trades processed per day – of all cryptocurrencies have rapidly grown over a period defined by high volatility. The two biggest cryptocurrencies on the market, Bitcoin and Ethereum, have fluctuated in average trade value with steady growth over a seven-year period since Ethereum entered the market.

Along with these cryptocurrencies, new platforms and exchanges emerge, solely catering to the trading of tokens and coins. Coinbase, Binance, eToro and others joust for attention from traders and now a new cryptocurrency exchange by the name of IBGX has emerged through the list of service providers to offer safe, efficient, and easy trading, while charging minimal fees for each transaction. Now in its final testing stage, and set to launch in Q3 2018, it seems like it will be achieving a good response based on early review of its working interface. IBGX is based in Indonesia and is expected to have servers located globally, especially in locations where cryptocurrency trading has proven to be very popular and widely accepted.

This is Not “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood”

The Unintended Consequences of Trump’s Aggressive Use of Economic Sanctions

ASPEN, CO, UNITED STATES, August 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Last week I saw the “Mr. Rogers’ movie “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” I’m definitely not a Mr. Rogers’ groupie. However, the irony of Mr, Rogers’ message of treating all people with kindness, courtesy and a belief in each person’s dignity juxtaposed with President Trump’s messages and actions of imposing severe economic sanctions on countries who have traditionally been our allies, is hard not to compare.

Certainly, no one can accuse our current president of a Mr. Rogers’ like attitude when it comes to his indiscriminate and aggressive use of economic sanctions. The use of economic sanctions is nothing new. President Woodrow Wilson stated after the end of World War I, “A nation that is boycotted is a nation that is in sight of surrender. Apply this economic, peaceful, silent, deadly remedy and there will be no need for force.”

Unfortunately, President Wilson and many Democratic and Republican administrations who followed him were too optimistic in believing economic sanctions would bring a country to its knees. A case in point is Cuba. Heavy sanctions were imposed on the country after the 1958 fall of the Batista regime. Sixty years later, even after the death of Fidel Castro, those sanctions have had virtually no effect in changing the country’s policies or regime.

You might be wondering why sanctions are a powerful U.S weapon. Economic sanctions work because of the role of the dollar in global finance and trade and the dollar’s role as the world’s primary reserve currency. According to the Bank for International Settlements, in 2016, 88 percent of all global financial transactions were settled in dollars. In the first quarter of this year, global reserves held in dollars were $6,499 trillion or 62.72% of all governmental reserves.

As long as the dollar remains the world’s main reserve currency the U.S. can use economic sanctions as a weapon. However, America’s aggressive use of economic sanctions is seen by allies as well as adversaries, as a bullying tactic. Those countries that were merely annoyed are now seething and resentful that the U.S. can use economic sanctions as a weapon based on the global role of the dollar.

China, Russia, and Brazil called for a global move away from the dollar in 2009 during the global financial crisis. China renewed this attack in 2013. Both of America’s largest creditors, Japan and China have recently cooled on owning U.S. Government bonds. These rumblings of discontent have so far fallen on deaf ears in the Trump administration.

Crude oil is almost always priced in dollars. China is the largest importer of crude oil and has recently begun buying oil in its own currency, the renminbi. The Chinese move to purchase oil in renminbi should be seen as a first step to increase global demand for its currency, and a threat to the role of the dollar

While any real threat to the pre-eminent role of the U.S. dollar in international trade and finance will likely take years to materialize, the Trump sanctions are definitely causing American friends and foes to seek alternatives. Unfortunately, this is occurring as the U.S. is finding it necessary to increase its borrowings to finance a growing deficit and as the Federal Reserve has started to shrink the size of its quantitative-easing policy.

It is not a comforting fact that earlier this year, a little over one year into the Trump presidency, the Treasury Department had added over 700 government agencies, people and companies to its economic sanction list.

We need to remember that much of America’s deficit and therefore what we consider to be our “American way of life” is financed by foreign countries holding their reserves in dollars. If the president’s aggressive and what I would call the impulsive use of economic sanctions continues, the acceleration of the decline of the U.S. dollar as the world’s primary reserve currency is inevitable.

There were always things you could consistently count on when watching “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood.” One was that speaking with care was important because all human beings have worth; being kind or nice was not a weakness; and Fred Rogers always made a distinction between imagination and reality. If only we had a president who could do the same.

Scuba diving in Cabo San Lucas

Have a Magical Experience Onboard a Luxury Yacht and Explore the Depths of the Sea of Cortez with Private Scuba Diving Tours!

Life is a journey with problems to solve, lessons to learn, but most of all, Experiences to enjoy”

— unknown

CABO SAN LUCAS, BAJA CALIFORNIA SUR, MEXICO, August 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Operator of the highest rated luxury cruises is now offering voyages aboard luxury catamaran yachts along with a private luxury scuba diving experience. The luxury scuba diving holiday provider has announced they are now also offering private luxury scuba diving onboard a luxury catamaran yacht with state-of-the-art facilities and impeccable services.
At a recent launch event, the spokesperson for the company said, CABO YACHT WORLD is proud to announce that we have recently added a new yacht to our scuba diving excursions. We are extremely excited to have included a luxury Catamaran yacht ARISE to our fleet specially because we have a dive master on board that has been certified even for handicapped guests, and the addition of the new luxury Catamaran yacht is sure to add to the amazing experience.”
The Catamaran is a multi-hulled watercraft that features state-of-the-art facilities such as, two parallel hulls. That Catamaran is a geometry-stabilized craft, and derives its stability from its extra wide beam, rather than a monohull sailboat which has a ballasted keel. Thus, it offers complete comfort while sailing and scuba diving.
On answering a question, the spokesperson stated, “We are very happy with the inclusion of the new catamaran yacht to our scuba diving tour. The Catamaran offers the best in comfort and luxury, with spacious cabins, en-suite facilities and a sprawling deck along with salon areas.You can rest assured that our 64 ft. Catamarans have all amenities and equipment one would look for uninterrupted dives, making it the perfect vessel for exploring remote areas where underwater treasures are waiting to be explored in the sea of Cortez.”
The MY 64ft (19.51m) Lagoon Catamaran Yacht will be sailing to the relatively untouched Sea of Cortez, also known as the ‘Gulf of California’ which is considered to be one of the hot spots for biodiversity and marine life, along with a flourishing coral reef that’s just waiting to be explored. The sea is wedged between Baja California and the mainland Mexico with a sheltered and narrow outline, which results to mostly calm waters, making it an ideal spot for the best scuba diving experience possible.
He concluded by saying, “Our luxury scuba diving tour onboard a luxury catamaran yacht is perfect for people who love the sea. the Sea of Cortez is an amazing place to visit. The warm waters are relatively calm, with high mountains in a distance rise from the bluish-green sea and upwards to the blue sky. It is the perfect place to spend a full day with friends or family. Once below the water, you are freed from gravity, and experience absolute freedom. Guests on our luxury scuba diving tours will get to spot up to 900 different fish species. Gently touch them, sit on the ocean’s floor, or play with the sand, and feel like a true National Geographic explorer of the deep sea. The boat ride to and from the dive site is also a sight to behold, not only because of the amazing natural beauty of the surroundings but because Grey whales and Humpback are often spotted en route, which makes the experience magical.In short, it’s a great body of water to explore, and we’d love it if you would join us for this unforgettable adventure.”

Luzita Kennedy of PulvermacherKennedy & Associates Returns to CUTV News Radio for a New Episode

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, August 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — As the expression goes, "The fish stinks from the head.” Culture is set from the top down and leaders set the tone. If leadership is not operating properly, the organization as a whole will suffer.

Success begins with leaders or it never begins at all. That’s the philosophy of PulvermacherKennedy & Associates, a management consulting firm. PKA are leaders in succession planning and implementation, strategic enterprise transformation, and executive development at the individual and team levels.

“An organization’s most valuable resource is its human capital: its employees,” says Luzita Kennedy, managing partner of PKA. “Whether we’re looking at strategy, operations, or organizational design of a company, what goes hand-in-hand with that is people. We forget that there are people who make that organization function. What we find with management or executive teams is they often become so focused on numbers and reaching certain targets, and they forget about their people.”

All the work PKA does, whether it’s leadership development or executive coaching, is in the context of changes that are taking place in the business. Those changes could be a restructuring, a merger, or a transfer to the next generation. When change takes place in an organization, inevitably it causes stress in the system. PKA specializes in helping organizations positively react to change, adapt and align to those changes.

“Any change that they want to implement in the organization, whether it's related to people or processes, starts at the top,” says Kennedy. “If the leadership team is aligned, the rest of the organization follows suit, so it's about marrying the changes that are occurring in the business and aligning management to those changes.”

Much of PKA’s work is in succession planning. How does an organization develop its next group of leaders?

“We have to create seamless transition,” says Kennedy. “We’re working with the current owner to help them transition out of their role. We’re also working with the incoming person because they might not be ready. There's a process of looking at their current leadership style given the role they are inheriting. What are the competencies attached to that role? Which competencies are missing? How do you bridge that gap?”

As executives reach new heights of their career, they tend to do the things they did before. Through PKA’s executive coaching and leadership development programmers, they can begin to heighten their self-awareness. Kennedy says most leaders are committed to making the adjustments because they know that it's important to the rest of the organization.

CUTV News Radio will feature Luzita Kennedy in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on Monday, August 20th at 11am.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

Our 2005 priority date is significantly earlier than other patents currently being licensed in this area.”, said Mark Boys VP of Intellectual Property for Edge.

The Edge Ring will be added to Edge’s growing body of payment devices designed to give consumers a commerce experience that fits their lifestyle. “The ring represents a new form factor that will make NFC payments possible even when a consumer is without their smartphone. Our goal is to build out a comprehensive digital banking platform with multiple connected payment devices that will give our customers options for how they make payments and how they interact with their finances – making transactions easy, fast and safe.”, said Peter Garrett, CEO of Edge.

Affords small and mid-sized companies on a budget access to legal advice without large retainer of hourly billings

Wallace Meyaski, LLC (N/A:N/A)

… we have developed a unique approach to helping small to medium size businesses who cannot afford to hire an in-house lawyer. We offer to serve as a client’s General Counsel for a fixed-fee …”

— K. Todd Wallace, Attorney

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA, UNITED STATES, August 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The New Orleans Law Firm of Wallace Meyaski, LLC has announced that they are offering designated General Counsel legal services for an agreed-upon "fixed fee" for small and mid-sized companies. Given the increasing legal and regulatory complexity of today’s business environment, many companies are faced with the choice of either committing more and more resources to pay escalating outside counsel fees, or of taking on additional headcount and the associated costs and expenses to build an in-house legal and/or human resource team.

Explains attorney K. Todd Wallace: “We set out to find a way to encourage our clients to contact us more regularly, to involve us before an issue becomes a problem, and to depend upon our extensive experience in advising our corporate clients. What we offer is a third and, hopefully, more appealing option: a cost-effective way to retain the services of experienced corporate attorneys on a fixed-fee basis to guide and advise a corporate client each step of the way.”

With the costs of legal fees soaring to all-time highs, the law firm understands that businesses are too often reluctant to call upon outside counsel for fear of uncertain and excessive legal bills. Of course, when businesses fail to address important legal, HR, and corporate issues on the front-end, the legal costs associated with cleaning up the mess can easily exceed five to six times the cost had the client simply brought a lawyer in early on.

The team at Wallace Meyaski offer this unique approach whereby the client pays an agreed-upon fixed monthly fee to serve as the client’s outsourced General Counsel. At the end of the day, this approach encourages businesses to use and rely on the firm as the “inside” counsel on a regular basis while, at the same time, providing the client with a fixed cost that that it can properly budget without having to worry about surprising and unexpected legal costs.

K. Todd Wallace adds, “we have developed a unique approach to helping small to medium size businesses who cannot afford to hire an in-house lawyer. We offer to serve as a client’s General Counsel for a fixed-fee (monthly fee) based upon a defined bucket of services.” He went on to add “that in today's environment small to medium size business are the ones that are hurt the most impacted by the increasing legal and regulatory complexity of today’s business environment, because they are not properly represented. We hope this offers a solution for that problem.”

Wallace Meyaski, LLC offers a wide array of general counsel outsourced services, including the following areas:

Human Resources and Employment Services

Wallace Meyaski, LLC brings over twenty years of broad experience in the area of labor and employment law and human resources. As a result, they can provide you with day-to-day advice on how to handle every aspect of employee hiring, promotion, and termination and to implement policies and procedures to protect clients from unnecessary and costly litigation.

Commercial Contract Preparation and Review

As part of our monthly fee, the firm can draft new commercial contracts and review and revise any existing commercial agreements, including purchase and sale agreements, master service agreements, terms and conditions, commercial contracts, non-disclosure agreements, confidentiality agreements, employment-related contracts, consulting agreements, and property leases.

Corporate Succession and Corporate Governance

Wallace Meyaski, LLC recommend that companies regardless of size and scope take a good hard look at long-term business succession planning. In the simplest terms, succession planning is a process whereby an organization ensures that employees at all levels are recruited, developed, and maintained to fill each key role within the company. Succession planning also anticipates and addresses issues that inevitably arise with any change in management and/or ownership to ensure a smooth transition and long-term success for the company. Through a proper succession planning process, businesses recruit superior employees, develop their knowledge, skills, and abilities, and prepare them for advancement or promotion into ever more challenging roles.
