The Virtual Underground Railroad is a One Stop Shop for all things Crypto and will be the safest, largest Crypto Educational Platform in history

Najah Roberts, founder and Chief Visionary Officer of Crypto Blockchain Plug (CBP) ( the first African-American, woman-owned cryptocurrency (and one of the only brick-and mortar) lounge in the U.S. has launched the largest crypto education platform in history, the “The Virtual Underground Railroad.” This new platform aims to educate Black and Brown communities across the U.S. by sharing a wealth of information beginning with the foundation behind Bitcoin to how money is evolving. Najah will utilize her cryptocurrency expertise to educate and close the wealth gap that exists in our country.

The Virtual Underground Railroad platform will include education of NFT's, Mining cryptocurrencies, Altcoins, Exchanges, Wallets, Kids in Crypto, Crypto Taxes, Trading, Tokenization, Crypto Scam Awareness, The Metaverse, Jobs in the Crypto & Blockchain Space, Real Estate, Life Insurance, Traditional retirement accounts, Stocks & Bonds, Business Opportunities, The Buy Black Movement, Health & Wellness, and last, but not least, a community where everyone is learning and gaining financial freedom.

Najah founded CBP located at 614 E. Manchester Avenue, Inglewood, CA in 2018 and has been steadfastly teaching communities about cryptocurrency for many years. A staunch advocate for improving the financial welfare of black and brown communities, she is referred to as the "Harriet Tubman of Financial Services" because of her vow to lead her people out of Financial Slavery. Najah’s mission mirrors Harriet Tubman’s mission, but with a twist — "I have freed hundreds of financial slaves and I could have freed thousands more if only they knew they were financial slaves." -Najah Roberts

The Virtual Underground Railroad Community platform was created after Najah and her staff’s realization that the cryptocurrency education she was disseminating to the community was being pushed down in the algorithm and silenced on both her Instagram, Facebook accounts. She and her team determined to develop a method to control the education and own their own content by creating a “one stop shop” platform for communities.

Najah has dedicated her life to the Crypto Space and CPB. She is also Founder and Executive Director of Crypto Kids Camp, Co-Founder of The Black Wall Street Wallet alongside Actor Hill Harper, Co-Founder of C.E.N.T.

While helping communities in poverty, the Ghetto SharkHood NFT project steps deeper into the metaverse

This unique NFT project aims to connect reality with the digital world & brings a collection of 10,000 Ghetto SharkHood NFTs swimming in the Ethereum Blockchain

UNITED STATES, October 31, 2021 / — With millions of dollars going into NFTs every week, these digital assets have become a hot topic among traders and investors. Even though many people believe that NFT is not traditional art, a valuation of over 69 million dollars on a Beeple’s First 5000 days NFT has shifted the mindset of many investors.

The team behind “Ghetto SharkHood” believes NFTs to be the natural progression of art and brings a new value to the digitized world. They have focused extensively on transforming the market by providing fair distribution and associating real-world projects with the NFT. It costs around 0.08 ETH for every member and offers exclusive lifetime membership to a digital clubhouse, SharkHood. From headwear to expressions, each Ghetto SharkHood brings a unique programmatically generated trait to the owners.

By planning for the long term, this NFT project aims to bring an opportunity to aspiring artists worldwide. Through this project, Ghetto SharkHood goes the extra mile to do its part for the NFT Community.

What Makes Ghetto SharkHood Unique?
So far, the vast majority of NFT projects and utilities are only limited to the digital world. All the communities are oriented towards exceptional art and focus entirely upon the digital aspects. Among this cluster of NFT projects, Ghetto SharkHood brings a vision to blur the divide between the natural world and the digital world. This concept underscores that everything done in the digital world will be followed by a real-world representation.

To provide an example, a representative from Ghetto SharkHood had this to say, “For instance, if we have a game for planting potatoes, then in the real world, we will help communities in poverty build potato farms. Our project will include real-world utilities for our members through partnering with major vendors and brands. The projects will consist of Travel & Hospitality, Gaming and Esports (facilities & team development, and streamers), Data Center (mining & staking).”

Ultimately, this organization plans to expand the scope of projects and direct the funds back towards the community. It is undoubtedly an admirable attempt by Ghetto SharkHood to help the needy while also raising the bar in the digital market.

Social & Environmental Impact
Being from humble backgrounds, the team behind this NFT project believes in sharing success with the community and the supporters. It plans on being a movement that fulfills its social duty by promoting education and scholarships while also providing medical funds and facilities to children and families. There are complete projects lined up to build sustainable farms for communities in poverty. It further aims to establish Esport talent incubators, ocean conversation, and wildlife protection.

Along with all these projects, Ghetto SharkHood promises to do everything in its power to make this world a better place for the next generation. This organization believes that the responsibility to take the initiative lies in their hand as they have to set an example for emerging entrepreneurs in the digital space.

Why Sharks?
Sharks have been around for over 400 million years and have survived five extinctions. These creatures symbolize progress and tenacity by never sleeping and always moving forward. Like the Sharks, this organization aims to stick around for a long time.

While creating a resilient community, Ghetto SharkHood hopes to evolve with the market trends to secure its palace in the metaverse. The Shark NFT entails their long-term vision and determination to succeed in the digital space no matter the cost.

Before launching this project on significant platforms, interested individuals can get their hands on this NFT through the presale period by accessing the Ghetto SharkHood official website. It is available at 0.08 ETH per token and provides instant access to the SharkHood. Use this link to get the NFT today,

الاتحاد لائتمان الصادرات تطلق "بوابة التمويل التجاري الموحدة" لتسهيل حصول الشركات الصغيرة والمتوسطة على التمويل

(From left to right) Hashim Al Hussaini, Crediti CEO & MoniMove Co-Founder, Shireesh Bhide, Head of Corporate, Commercial and International Banking at FAB and Massimo Falcioni, CEO of ECI

DUBAI, UAE, October 31, 2021 / —

في إطار جهودها المتواصلة لدعم نمو اقتصاد دولة الإمارات، وقعت الاتحاد لائتمان الصادرات، وهي شركة حماية الائتمان التابعة للحكومة الاتحادية بدولة الإمارات العربية المتحدة، مذكرة تفاهم مع بنك أبوظبي الأول وشركة "كريديتي فنتك" لإطلاق "بوابة التمويل التجاري الموحدة".

وفقًا لتقرير منظمة التجارة العالمية "تمويل التجارة والشركات الصغيرة والمتوسطة" فإن حصول الشركات على التمويل أمر ضروري لضمان تجارة مستدامة، ولاسيما أن ما يصل إلى 80 في المئة من التجارة العالمية يتم دعمها بالتمويل أو حماية الائتمان. ومع ذلك، هناك فجوات كبيرة في توفير التمويل وبالتالي يصعب على العديد من الشركات الوصول إلى الموارد المالية التي تحتاجها. وذكرت منظمة التجارة العالمية أنه دون تمويل تجاري مناسب، تضيع فرص النمو، وهو ما يؤدي إلى افتقار الشركات إلى الأدوات اللازمة لنمو تجارتها والتوسع حيث إن كبرى التحديات التي تواجهها الشركات الصغيرة والمتوسطة تتمثل في حصولها على التمويل بشروط ميسورة. ويؤكد تقرير منظمة التجارة العالمية أن صعوبة الحصول على التمويل تشكل مصدر قلق خاصة أن الشركات الصغيرة والمتوسطة هي المحرك الرئيسي للتجارة والتوظيف والتنمية الاقتصادية.

تهدف "بوابة التمويل التجاري الموحدة" إلى تسهيل وصول الشركات الإماراتية العاملة في قطاع التصدير وإعادة التصدير إلى التمويل وحلول حماية الائتمان، فضلاً عن دعم نمو الشركات الصغيرة والمتوسطة، وبالتالي تعزيز مساهمتها في الاستراتيجية الصناعية لدولة الإمارات "مشروع 300 مليار".

وبدعم من وزارة الاقتصاد في دولة الإمارات، يسعى المشروع الذي يقدم مثالاً حياً للشراكة بين القطاعين العام والخاص، إلى ترسيخ مكانة شركة الاتحاد لائتمان الصادرات، بدعم من بنك أبوظبي الأول، كبوابة رئيسية للمصدرين للحصول على منتجات الائتمان التجاري والحلول المالية التي تقدمها البنوك التجارية والمؤسسات المالية، بالتعاون مع منصة «مونيموف فنتك». ويعد بنك أبوظبي الأول أول بنك تجاري ينضم إلى هذه المبادرة. ومن المتوقع انضمام البنوك التجارية الأخرى، وهو ما يؤكد على قوة النظام المصرفي في دولة الإمارات وقدرته على تلبية الاحتياجات المالية الرئيسية للشركات.

وتعليقًا على هذا الموضوع، قال ماسيمو فالسيوني، الرئيس التنفيذي لشركة الاتحاد الائتمان الصادرات: "يعكس إطلاق بوابة التمويل التجاري الموحدة، التي تتماشى مع "مشاريع الخمسين"، رؤية صاحب السمو الشيخ محمد بن راشد آل مكتوم، نائب رئيس الدولة، رئيس مجلس الوزراء، حاكم دبي، حيث قال سموه: "إن حجم التجارة غير النفطية لدولة الإمارات يتجاوز 1.5 تريليون درهم سنويًا، وأن شبكتنا اللوجستية تنتشر في 400 مدينة عالمية، وأن الاقتصاد غير النفطي لدولة الإمارات العربية المتحدة يمثل أكثر من 70 في المئة من الناتج المحلي الإجمالي. هدفنا هو زيادة صادراتنا الوطنية بنسبة 50 في المئة في السنوات القادمة. نحن ملتزمون بفخر بالعمل كفريق واحد، اتحاديًا ومحليًا، للارتقاء باقتصادنا الوطني إلى آفاق جديدة."

ويهدف المشروع الى توفير الحلول المناسبة لعدد من التحديات التي يواجهها المصدرون في الحصول على الموارد المالية لتمويل متطلبات شركاتهم، مثل محدودية توافر التمويل للمؤسسات الصغيرة؛ صعوبة إجراءات الحصول على التمويل؛ عدم توفر منتجات وحلول ملائمة للشركات؛ عدم وجود منصة لتنفيذ التوثيق الرقمي؛ بالإضافة إلى بطء وتعقيد الإجراءات.

كما تسعى البوابة إلى توفير حلول مالية مبتكرة تساهم في بناء اقتصاد مرن وتعزيز قطاع الشركات الصغيرة والمتوسطة. ومن خلال هذه الشراكة، ستتمتع الشركات المصدرة بسرعة الوصول إلى حلول التمويل وحماية الائتمان التي تجمع بين شركة التأمين والبنوك والمصدرين في منصة واحدة، حيث ستعمل الاتحاد لائتمان الصادرات على مساعدة الشركات الصغيرة والمتوسطة في الحصول على قروض من بنك أبوظبي الأول بالاستفادة من التكنولوجيا المتقدمة لمنصة مونيموف. ومن شأن هذه المنصة أن توفر حلاً رقمياً يضمن التعاون السلس بين جميع الجهات المعنية ويساهم في تسريع حصول الشركات الصغيرة والمتوسطة على التمويل.

وقال شيريش بهيد، رئيس مجموعة الخدمات المصرفية للشركات والأعمال التجارية والدولية في بنك أبوظبي الأول: "لطالما حرص بنك أبوظبي الأول على أن يكون جسراً للتدفقات التجارية بين دولة الإمارات العربية المتحدة والأسواق العالمية، عبر توفير التمويل التجاري لعدد من أكبر المصدّرين في الدولة. وتتيح لنا هذه الشراكة المبتكرة مع كل من الاتحاد لائتمان الصادرات وكريديتي فنتك فرصة تقديم خبراتنا الواسعة في هذا المجال إلى مجموعة متنامية من شركات التصدير، من مختلف الأحجام، في الإمارات. وستوظف بوابة التمويل التجاري الموحدة أحدث حلول التكنولوجيا والبيانات، وعلاقات العملاء، لتسريع النمو المتواصل للشركات الصغيرة والمتوسطة والمشاريع الناشئة ورواد الأعمال، بالتزامن مع دورها في دعم الاستراتيجيات الوطنية الهادفة إلى وضع أسس قوية لاقتصاد مستقبلي يتسم بالاستدامة والتنوع".

من جانبه، قال هاشم الحسيني، الرئيس التنفيذي لشركة كريديتي والشريك المؤسس لشركة مونيموف: "ستوفر هذه المبادرة المبتكرة طريقة للمضي قدمًا لمواجهة تحديات تمويل الشركات الصغيرة والمتوسطة. ونحن فخورون بأن نسير على نفس المسار مع اثنين من المؤسسات الرائدة في الدولة، حيث توضح مذكرة التفاهم هذه التزامنا بتقديم الجيل الحديث من استخدام أنظمة الائتمان، وحوكمة سلسلة التوريد والتمويل التجاري."

وقال السيد علي الملا، رئيس مجلس إدارة جي إل إتش وعضو مجلس إدارة كريديتي: "نحن متحمسون لأن نكون جزءًا من هذه المبادرة الاستراتيجية، ونحن على ثقة من أننا سنساهم معًا في تحقيق رؤية دولة الإمارات العربة المتحدة وتعزيز نمو الاقتصاد الوطني".

وستعزز بوابة التمويل التجاري الموحدة قدرة المصدرين على ممارسة الأعمال التجارية على الصعيد العالمي وستقدم الدعم في جوانب مختلفة، مثل الوصول إلى أسواق دولية جديدة، وحماية المستحقات التجارية، ودعم التدفق النقدي، والحد من مخاطر التركز الائتماني، وكذلك تسهيل الوصول إلى التمويل المصرفي محلياً ودولياً ومراقبة أداء الأعمال.

Veteran homelessness is a serious issue all across the country.

Umbra Companies, Inc. (OTCMKTS:UCIX)

CENTURY CITY, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2021 / — California has the highest number of homeless veterans among all the states of the US. According to the January 2020 report by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), California has 11,401 homeless veterans; that is four times higher than Florida, the state with the second-highest number, i.e., 2,463.

The total population of homeless individuals in California was estimated to be 161,548 in 2020. That means more than 7% of the total homeless population comprises military veterans.

These statistics get considerably more alarming when we consider the effects of the pandemic. As of now, HUD hasn’t published the unemployment statistics for 2021. But we expect to see a rise in veteran homelessness due to the surge in unemployment caused by COVID-19 lockdowns.

Veteran homelessness is a serious concern for the government and public alike; it’s sad to see our heroes facing problems finding shelter.

UMBRA Companies, Inc. (UCIX) has taken the initiative to minimize veteran homelessness in the US by investing in real estate and housing projects all across the country. As of now, UCIX is working on several projects in many states including Nevada, California, Texas, Washington, Florida, and others.

Furthermore, even though UCIX’s projects are primarily focused on providing shelter to homeless veterans, they are also aimed towards giving better living environments to different veterans.

In a quest to make society a better place for everyone, UCIX has also announced that a portion of its earnings will go to non-profit organizations.

The starting projects are comparatively smaller, but UCIX aims to target much bigger projects in the future. The team encourages more capable investors to invest in this movement.

If you would like to be a part of UCIX’s movement to fight veteran homelessness, feel to get in touch with us here.

The ‘UAE Trade Finance Gateway’ to ease credit access to SMEs

(From left to right) Hashim Al Hussaini, Crediti CEO & MoniMove Co-Founder, Shireesh Bhide, Head of Corporate, Commercial and International Banking at FAB and Massimo Falcioni, CEO of ECI

DUBAI, UAE, October 31, 2021 / —

• Etihad Credit Insurance signs tripartite Cooperation agreement with First Abu Dhabi Bank & Crediti Fintech to launch ‘UAE Trade Finance Gateway’
• Empowered by the UAE Ministry of Economy, the project seeks to position ECI and FAB as the main gateway of exporters and re-exporters to trade credit and financial solutions
• UAE Trade Finance Gateway aims to ease the access of UAE exporters and re-exporters to trade and export financing, as well as support the growth of SMEs, thus enabling them to contribute to the UAE’s industrial strategy ‘Operation 300bn’
• This project will address the challenges facing SMEs and the shortage of trade finance solutions through financial and technological solutions to build a strong SME sector and a resilient economy

As a significant impetus to the UAE economic development, Etihad Credit Insurance (ECI), the UAE Federal export credit company, signed an MoU with First Abu Dhabi Bank (FAB) and Crediti Fintech for the implementation of the ‘UAE Trade Finance Gateway’.

The availability of finance is essential for a healthy trading system. According the World Trade Organization (WTO) report “Trade finance and SMEs”, up to 80 per cent of global trade is supported by some sort of financing or credit insurance. However, according the report, there are significant gaps in provision and therefore many companies cannot access the financial tools that they need. Without adequate trade finance, opportunities for growth and development are missed, is stated by the WTO. Businesses are deprived of the fuel they need to trade and expand. Small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) face the greatest hurdles in accessing financing on affordable terms. This is of particular concern, the WTO report continues, as SMEs are a leading driver of trade, employment and economic development.

The ’Trade Finance Gateway’ platform aims at easing the access of UAE exporters and re-exporters to financing, as well as support the growth of SMEs, thus enabling them to contributee to the UAE’s industrial strategy ‘Operation 300bn’.

Supported by the UAE Ministry of Economy, as an example of Public Private Partnership approach, the project seeks to position ECI as the main gateway of exporters and re-exporters to trade credit and financial solutions that will be provided by commercial banks and financial institutions, whereby Monimove fintech platform is the technology backbone. FAB is the first commercial bank to join this initiative and other commercial banks are expected to follow, confirming the strength of the UAE banking system in the UAE, capable to address the key financial needs of the businesses.

Commenting on this, Mr. Massimo Falcioni, CEO of Etihad Credit Insurance, said: The ‘UAE Trade Finance Gateway’, which comes in line with the UAE’s 50 projects to boost the economy, reflects the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. His Highness stated that the UAE’s non-oil trade annually exceeds Dh1.5 trillion and our logistics network is in 400 international cities. UAE non-oil economy represents more than 70 per cent of our GDP. His Highness also clearly highlighted that our goal is to increase our national exports by 50 per cent in the coming years. We are proudly committed to work as one team, federally and locally, to bring our national economy to new heights.

The project will tackle a number of challenges faced by exporters and re-exporters in obtaining finance to fund their working capital requirements, such as restricted availability of finance to smaller enterprises, cumbersome and confusing process to obtain finance, the inability of customers to understand best-fit product or solution, lack of infrastructure to execute digitalized documentation, and time-consuming and lengthy process.

It will also address the challenges facing SMEs and the shortage of trade finance solutions through financial and technological solutions to build a strong SME sector and a resilient economy. Through this partnership, exporters and re-exporters will benefit from seamless and fast access to financing solutions bringing together the insurer, banks and exporters in one unified platform. ECI insurance cover will enable exporting SMEs to obtain collateralised loans from FAB leveraging the advanced technology of MoniMove platform. SMEs will benefit from an end-to-end digitised process encouraging smooth collaboration between all parties and accelerating access to financing products.

Mr. Shireesh Bhide, Head of Corporate, Commercial and International Banking at FAB, said: “FAB has long served as a bridge for trade and investment flows between the UAE and international markets, by providing trade finance for some of the nation’s largest exporters. Through this innovative partnership with ECI and Crediti Fintech, we will be able to extend our expertise to an expanding range of UAE businesses, offering vital support to exporters of all sizes. The Unified Trade Finance Gateway will leverage technology, data, and customer relationships to accelerate the growth potential of the nation’s SME’s, start-ups and entrepreneurs, and support the UAE’s strategy for a sustainable and diversified future economy.”

Meanwhile, Mr. Hashim Al Hussaini, Crediti CEO & MoniMove Co-Founder, stated: “This path-breaking initiative will provide a way forward to address SMEs financing challenges. We are proud to be paddling the same path with two leading giants in the country, this MoU demonstrates our commitment toward offering the next generation of credit utilization, supply chain and trade finance solutions.”

“We are very excited to be part of this unique initiative, we are confident that together we will contribute to the country’s vision and the national economy’s growth” said Mr. Ali Al Mulla, GLH Chairman and Crediti board member.

Moreover, the UAE Trade Finance Gateway will strengthen exporters’ capability to do business globally and help them in various aspects, such as accessing new cross border markets, counterparty liquidation protection, support in cash flow, reduction in concentration risk, as well as facilitating local and global bank financing and portfolio monitoring.

‘Be a Part of Something Great and Transformative’

Now, as a nation, we are undertaking the single most transformative project in our history under the CBI Programme: the construction of an international airport”

— Minister Charles

DUBAI, UAE, October 31, 2021 / — LONDON — (ARAB NEWSWIRE) — The Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Programme is an instrumental tool transforming the socio-economic landscape of the Commonwealth of Dominica. This is according to the island’s Minister of Tourism, International Transport and Maritime Initiatives, Hon. Denise Charles, who attributes the nation’s thriving tourism industry to the CBI Programme and welcomes investors from Asia and the Middle East to Dominica.

As the world rapidly changes, invaluable and intangible resources like health, safety and security have become non-negotiable for business people and their families with weak passports. Dominica, nestled in the beautiful eastern Caribbean, prides itself as a nature-prioritising destination in which one can feel safe. Aside from a second home, Dominica’s CBI grants new citizens full living, studying and working rights, business expansion opportunities, and visa-free and visa-on-arrival travel to over 140 destinations.

Becoming a citizen is not just advantageous for personal security and travel, Minister Charles said, it allows one to help build a more modern, dynamic Dominica for all its citizens and residents. “I want to encourage anyone who is seeking a second citizenship to consider Dominica and be a part of something great and transformative,” she added.

“Now, as a nation, we are undertaking the single most transformative project in our history under the CBI Programme: the construction of an international airport,” said Minister Charles. The airport, scheduled for completion in 2025, will “serve as a major gateway to key countries like the United Arab Emirates, the UK, China, other parts of Asia and Africa for trade and travel.”

Through the CBI Programme, Dominica has expanded its tourism product to include luxury eco-friendly accommodations like the recently opened 5-star Kempinski resort. The initiative has funded the expansion of globally recognised boutique hotels like the Secret Bay Residences, which recently celebrated its 100th ROI payment to its CBI clientele, and rebuilt the famous Jungle Bay resort, damaged by tropical storm Erica. Other projects accepting investments through CBI include the Hilton Tranquility Beach resort, the Marriott Anichi Resort and the Sanctuary Rainforest Eco Resort & Spa.

Vetted applicants to Dominica’s CBI Programme can choose between investing in one of these trusted hotel brands for return on investment or contributing to the government fund. The second option supports youth educational advancement, climate-resilient housing projects, sustainable job certation and economic growth.
