Pledgecamp has joined Klaytn as one of its Initial Service Partners (ISP)

PledgeCamp Announced A Partnership With Public Blockchain Klaytn

PledgeCamp Announced A Partnership With Public Blockchain Klaytn

PledgeCamp Announced A Partnership With Public Blockchain Klaytn

SINGAPORE, July 18, 2019 / — Pledgecamp has joined Klaytn as one of its Initial Service Partners (ISP). Klaytn is the global public blockchain project of South Korea’s leading mobile platform Kakao Corp. (Kakao).

Developed by Kakao’s blockchain subsidiary arm Ground X, Klaytn aims to combine the best features of both public and private blockchains, and provide a world-class user experience to millions of people. Recently, Kakao has raised US$90 million in a private coin offering in order to fund development and research activities in Ground X.

Ground X’s CEO Jason Han wants to onboard 10 million user accounts onto Klaytn within its first year. To this effect, Klatyn plans to leverage the massive user base of Kakao’s free mobile texting and calling app KakaoTalk. Installed on over 93% of all smartphones in South Korea, Kakao Talk is the country’s most popular messaging app.

Today, Kakao Talk has over 50 million monthly active users worldwide, with about 44 million in South Korea. In terms of penetration, KakaoTalk can be compared to China’s leading chat platform WeChat, which has 1 billion monthly active uses and close to 90% market penetration.  

Kakao has already shown significant prowess in the blockchain industry. Dunamu Inc, a FinTech startup and a subsidiary of Kakao, operates cryptocurrency exchange Upbit jointly with US-based Bittrex. Launched on 24th Oct, 2017, Upbit is South Korea’s largest crypto-currency exchange by volume today.

In Dec, 2018, Upbit became the world’s first crypto exchange to receive certifications from the Korea Internet&Security Agency and the International Organization for Standardization, for information security, cloud security and cloud privacy. Recently, they have expanded their operations to Singapore and Indonesia too.

Kakao and its subsidiaries

In order to popularize blockchain technology among the masses, Ground X plans to fill Klatyn with a range of applications, including games, shopping apps, travel apps, and so on. In the words of Jason Han, they are partnering with “promising blockchain projects developed by globally successful service providers with a prospective user base of tens of millions”.

The partnerships will mutually benefit all the ISPs, as each of them would potentially be able to access each other’s’ user bases and drive further penetration.

Pledgecamp is proud to associate itself with Klatyn’s ecosystem as one of their initial service partners. Ground X has been selecting only quality companies with proven track records as their partners, and we are pleased to have passed their strict and rigorous listing criteria.

The partnership will enable millions of Kakao users to access our crowdsourcing platform, and invest in projects of their choice without being worried about being scammed in the process. Klaytn’s other ISPs will also be able to directly utilize our platform in case they wish to raise funds for a new product or service.

Pledgecamp is a company which is trying to disrupt the crowdfunding industry. The popular crowdfunding sites today charge a listing fee to projects which want to use their platform, and thereafter have no legal obligation to ensure whether these projects have lived up to their promises. Projects which fail to deliver their goals lead to disgruntled investors, and less than 1 in 3 people end up funding more than one project. This hurts the entire crowdfunding ecosystem.

Pledgecamp is introducing blockchain technology in the crowdfunding industry and implementing pro-backer measures. Through the Campaign Deposit mechanism, we will incentivize projects to get back their listing fees by showing tangible proof of progress to our users.

We would also keep a portion of the project’s funds locked in escrow through our Backer Insurance policy, to be distributed back to investors if they feel that the project hasn’t made sufficient progress. Recently, we have also joined the Vatican’s Laudato Si’ program, to support projects which are looking to make a positive social and environmental impact through their efforts.

FINRA Arbitration – Investment Fraud Lawyers File Claims Against GPB Capital

Investors at GPB Capital have hired investment fraud attorneys to file FINRA claims to recover their losses from the drop in the share prices at GPB Capital.

PALM BEACH, FL, USA, July 18, 2019 / — Investors at GPB Capital Holdings have hired a investment fraud lawyers to file FINRA claims to recover their losses from the drop in the share prices at GPB Capital. On the 21st of June, 2019, it made the media rounds that GPB Capital announced a decline of up to 73% in the share prices of its investors. Many investors were devastated by this news and reports specifically mentioned significant declines for two of the largest investment funds at GPB Capital.

In spite of the negative reports and news that trailed GPB Capital, professional financial advisors, and broker-deal firms continued to report the original value of the shares on the account statements of customers. They also encouraged customers to ignore the negative reports and “hold” their investments.

Currently, GPB Capital investors have enlisted the services of the attorneys at Haselkorn & Thibaut, P.A.,, to help them file multiple claims against GPB Capital and the attorneys are also investigating into the activities of the financial advisors and broker firms who did not stop recommending GPB Capital investment funds to shareholders. Any investor who would like their cases to be reviewed should put a call through to +1 888-628-5590.

Over the last few months, many GPB Capital investors were unaware of the true state of things despite all the negative reports because their monthly account statements kept reflecting the full price of their investment funds when they were originally purchased. Of course, the professional financial advisors and broker-dealers knew that the values on the account statements were not accurate, but they did nothing about it since they had earned their commissions which reportedly runs into millions of dollars. They left the customers in the dark and on their own.

When GPB Capital announced that GPB Automotive Portfolio and GPB Holdings II, its two largest investment funds had dropped in value, investors now started looking for ways to recover whatever they can out of their investment losses. Other GPB Capital Investments may also be affected by this problem, and some of them include GPB Waste Management Fund, GPB NYS Development, GPB Holdings I, and GPB Cold Storage.

From the 21st of June Reports, the values from the end of the year 2018 are bringing about significant losses for investors and let’s not forget that GPB Capital has not released the current value of its investment funds for the current year 2019. And with all the bad news surrounding GPB Capital in 2018, it is so not likely that the current values for GPB Capital’s investment funds (whatever they are) will improve.

As at 2018, GPB purportedly announced that it would focus on financial reporting and accounting issues when it suspended redemptions. Later, GPB announced the resignation of its auditor. In the same 2018, public investors were told that there was an unannounced raid of its offices in New York to collect material. Some other issues that GPB capital experienced in 2018 include reported investigations into GPB capital by authorities and regulators such as FINRA, SEC, and FBI. There were also reports that GPB could be a Ponzi Scheme.

You may be wondering how and why many public investors invested in GPB Capital. They marketed their private placements through professional advisors to public investors. These financial advisors earned up to 8% commission from selling these investments, and they reportedly earned more than $100 million in commissions. With this method, GPB Capital made more than $1.8 billion in the capital.

With thousands of financial advisors and broker-dealer firms selling GPB investment funds, the effect of all of these could be a huge loss for public investors all over the country. Some well-known broker-dealer firms such as Dawson James, Sagepoint Financial, Woodbury Financial, and FSC Securities have all sold the GPB Capital investment to their customers.

Investors can contact an attorney to help them review their investment and discuss the options they have if they want to recoup their losses. However, there is a limited time for investors to file claims.

Capital Contacts Growth • Restaurant Finance & Development Conference

November 11-13, 2019 • Bellagio, Las Vegas

MINNEAPOLIS, MN, USA, July 18, 2019 / — Finance is the ticket, it’s always been the focus of the Restaurant Finance & Development Conference. Attendees come to the conference to raise capital for new unit development and remodels, refinance existing term debt or credit lines, sell and lease back real estate, master the vagaries of valuation and the restaurant M&A scene, and stay up-to-date on a wide variety of financial, economic, accounting, technology, delivery and restaurant business topics. All are good reasons to attend the conference.

The networking though, is best in class. We go out of our way to facilitate introductions and foster an environment for productive meetings with other attendees. We’re also proud of the number of restaurant operators we attract to the conference, and those we feature on our agenda. This year is no exception.
Our general session will feature The Wendy’s Company CEO Todd Penegor, a former CFO himself. Todd is building a strong, collaborative partnership with his franchisees at Wendy’s and we’re excited to have him share his views about the company and the industry.

We’re also excited to feature Scott & Ally Svenson on our agenda, the co-founders of the 400-unit MOD Pizza. While MOD is their primary focus now, the pair have already built and sold two companies in the U.K.—Seattle Coffee Co. in London to Starbucks, and Carluccio’s which was sold in 2010.
There is so much going on in restaurants right now. The industry is clearly in transition. Digital ordering and delivery is disrupting it. Traffic is hard to come by and labor is more expensive. All of this impacts cash flow and debt service and it’s important not only to stay on top of these developments, but learn from experts and find out what others are doing to stay competitive.

A complete agenda and brochure for the conference is now available online at We recommend you register now as we’ve reached capacity the past few years.

Own your piece of whisky history, the most valuable Scotch cask released entirely for Australia

Glendronach single cask #392 - 1993 26yo

Glendronach single cask #392 – 1993 26yo


The Whisky List, in partnership with The GlenDronach announces the launch of The GlenDronach 1993 Single Cask Bottling – 26 year old first-fill Oloroso Sherry Cask #392 – specially selected and exclusively bottled for The Whisky List, Australia.

Sydney, Australia – The Whisky List is excited to announce the launch of The GlenDronach 1993 Single Cask Bottling Cask #392, a luxurious and rare Australian-exclusive Single Malt Scotch Whisky, aged 26 years in a first-fill ex-Oloroso Sherry cask, hand-selected by GlenDronach Master Blender, Dr. Rachel Barrie and consisting of only 659 bottles at 51.0% ABV.

The official launch date for The GlenDronach 1993 Single Cask #329 is Tuesday, 30th July, 2019.

Each year, The GlenDronach Master Blender, Dr. Rachel Barrie specially selects a handful of individual casks from the warehouses at The GlenDronach Distillery, to be released as a GlenDronach Cask Bottling. Each of these extremely limited releases is bottled from a single cask which displays only the most remarkable characteristics, the single malt whisky contained within having developed exceptionally during their long maturation process.

From this exclusive group of casks, The GlenDronach 1993 Cask #392 was singled out by Dr. Barrie as an outstanding, exceptional cask, and amazingly, one of the final casks to be released from one of the greatest eras of the distillery, the early months of 1993. It displays exceptional qualities sought after by whisky drinkers and collectors alike, perfectly balancing the characteristics of the distillery with the flavours imparted by the cask.

With the help of the amazing team at The GlenDronach distillery, this Cask #392 is being released entirely for Australia by The Whisky List. It was distilled on the 12th of Feb 1993, has been aged for over 26 years in a first-fill Oloroso Sherry Cask, was bottled in May of 2019 at 51.0% ABV and consists of only 659 bottles.

Dr Barrie’s tasting notes include an appearance of Hazelnut in colour, a nose of strawberry preserve, burnt orange zest, sandalwood and honeycomb and a palate consisting of red liquorice orange zest, Oloroso, pepped apple and bramble. The finish is long, warming, and lingering. The mouth is left to cope with wave after wave of warming richness with layers of sweetness and spice to this whisky. Give this whisky time to open up and you will see it transform while you taste.

Chris Ross, Co-founder at The Whisky List explained “being a small market and far away from the US and the UK, Australia often is left to last – or just completely left out – of selecting any single cask bottlings from distilleries, forcing whisky drinkers and collectors in Australia to purchase these kinds of releases from overseas websites and auction houses. This is why we’ve partnered with Brown-Forman in selecting this delicious cask from GlenDronach.”

In selecting this cask, Chris noted “We wanted to select a remarkable whisky, something just for Australia and something to help the rest of the world sit up and take notice of the whisky scene here. And not something other markets had passed up, but rather a release that would be sought after across Australia and even by whisky drinkers around the world. Our criteria was simple, it had to taste as good as we would expect a 26yo GlenDronach from early 1993 – one of the truly great vintages of the distillery – to be; rich and flavourful, but mature, refined and balanced. And of course it needed to have a fantastic, long finish. It had to truly demonstrate the character of this amazing distillery. And with the help of our friends at GlenDronach, we’ve scored for Australia a cask that is everything we wanted it to be.”

The story of cask #392 is just as unique as its contents. We worked closely with the distillery team and The GlenDronach master blender Dr Rachel Barrie to source the best casks for selection from this infamous 1993 vintage.

Chris also notes “Whilst we’re aware of numerous other luxury casks coming to Australia, to the best of our knowledge, this is the most valuable Scotch whisky cask ever imported into Australia, being worth close to $500,000. It's a significant investment for the Australian market, even for a whisky of this calibre and we hope Aussie whisky drinkers will savour every last drop.”

A bottle of this extremely rare Glendronach single cask whisky would be the perfect gift for Father’s Day, a whisky aficionado to indulge in or for a whisky collector to keep.

The Glendronach 1993 Cask #392 aged 26 Years is priced at RRP $700 AUD. This release is distributed by The Whisky List and available for retail at It will be available at $650 AUD to members of The Whisky List for a special pre-sale event starting 30th July – make sure you sign up to TWL newsletter on their website

Ubikite WaaS Manager allows businesses to move Windows 10 feature updates from project to process and significantly reduce the risk of cyber and malware attacks

REDMOND, WA, USA, July 18, 2019 / — Microsoft’s Windows-as-a-Service was introduced with the release of Windows 10. It is a service that keeps Windows 10 up-to-date, but not many organizations experience it as continuous systems improvement, resulting in a frustrating lack of uniformity for IT Professionals. Ubikite today launched WaaS Manager to help make the Windows feature update process easier and more controlled and manageable.

Ubikite is a startup created by Triangulum Labs, the in-house venture studio of the People Tech Group. Tom Malone, Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Triangulum, said “The Ubikite WaaS Manager has been created for IT Professionals. Our team talked with dozens of IT administrators, and the WaaS experience has been a real challenge for them. We saw the need and built a product in response. Our goal was to make it available both as an on-premise solution or as a Ubikite managed service, whatever fits the customer’s need best”.

“Ubikite WaaS Manager allows your IT department to manage desktop feature updates and deployments seamlessly,” said Bob Duffy, CEO of Ubikite. In the process, it significantly reduces the risk of cyber and malware attacks.

Re-thinking Security

Edward BANAYOTI Establishes Global Security

DALLAS, TEXAS, USA, July 18, 2019 / — The world’s defence and security markets are being reshaped by new strategies.

Most countries have been seen reducing or rebalancing their defence spend and the greatest increase seen across the board has been in the Intelligence segment.

As can be seen in most areas of the world where active conflict still exists, the wars being fought are no longer wars between countries. The shape of wars has changed with the emergence of groups with ideologies and wars fought by proxy. In other instances political instability has been instigated by foreign governments or influences. This new way and approach through which forces seeking to secure political change or seeking to disrupt stability cannot be fought simply by throwing money at military hardware or increasing the number of military recruits!

New threats need to be dealt with in very different ways. One needs to not only react to attack but one needs to pro-actively identify and address the more complex threats we are faced with today. Whether it is an uprising, a terrorist attack or a cyber attack, the right Intelligence infrastructure and team can help reduce the exposure to such risks.

An Intelligence gathering effort which results in huge amounts of Metadata with limited ability to understand the information collected or no real means to relate the Metadata to Hum Int, is effectively of very limited use. Ever since the intelligence field has suffered from lack of recruitment of individuals who possess the ability to understand basic human behaviour and current global events, the intelligence forces have ended up thinking within “pre-defined parameters” rather than “outside the box”. Training used in defence institutions has seen little change or willingness to adapt methods to help address a desperate need for critical thinking and a more contextual analysis and understanding of current events. As a result, analysis and reports by various intelligence agencies show a clear reactive vs. pro-active stance.

Global Intel Source provides the expertise and background required to pose the difficult question and do the critical thinking to create an environment where a more pro-active approach towards these new realities can be put into play. Global Intel Source can provide Critical Infrastructure analysis, advice on potential security threats both cyber and infrastructure, provide the background to assist develop stronger internal government protocols and standards and conduct Threat Risk Assessments on a variety of issues ranging from internal to external threats.

Through a more cooperative model addressing common threats, it is possible to develop greater trust and respect amongst countries which will help foster stronger international relations between them.


• Holistic approach towards addressing the new threats
• Access to a specialist pool of contractors who train and help develop a vast intelligence network.
• Access to Global Intel Source’s own network.
• Collaborative project coordinators and platform providers. With this service provided to specific countries seeking to develop a coordinated effort towards fighting common threats, Global Intel Source can be placed as as an independent platform provider and facilitator in a unique and trusted position to help coordinate mutual interest projects in scenarios where countries still have an element of distrust.
• Global Intel Source can provide Threat Risk Analysis or general advice with respect to specific projects or initiatives, critical infrastructure analysis, and security (cyber and infrastructure) analysis.
• Knowledge is power. By identifying weaknesses and the resultant potential security threats in a specific client’s nation Global Intel Source can act on providing them with the hard security assets needed to address any such threat.
