Paribus: DeFi Protocol for Exotic Digital Assets

Virginia, USA, Aug 9, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – DeFi protocol Paribus announces the launch of their testnet MVP, the beginning of a new approach to DeFi. Secure, trustless, and truly decentralized, Paribus users will be able to borrow against previously illiquid digital assets such as NFTs.



Put simply, Paribus is a cross-chain, DeFi borrowing and lending protocol. With the unique selling point of allowing exotic assets like NFTs, LP tokens, virtual lands and synthetics to be used as collateral for loans. The platform will also utilize standard crypto assets. Being cross-chain, Paribus will be on multiple chains but is building for the Cardano ecosystem, and will access their blockchain via side-chains.

Paribus focuses on evolving with new digital asset classes, and has recently launched the testnet MVP of their platform. Their testnet MVP will feature traditional borrowing and lending with standard crypto assets for members who participate in Paribus' staking program.

Paribus currently offers staking in their gold staking pool. The gold pool, Aurum, allows users to stake from 1,000,000 to 6,000,000 PBX for 365 days (less than 5 months remaining) for a minimum of 30% APY reward level. Since the APY is dynamic, rewards can increase, and is currently at 31%.

There is a growing need for both interoperability and the ability to borrow against exotic assets like NFTs in DeFi. The NFT space is growing, institutional investors are becoming more interested in the potential of cryptocurrency, and the industry grows leaps and bounds every day. Paribus plans to be the platform for DeFi lending, leveraging their tech and security to bring users a well-rounded experience. Their full MVP launch will include APY boosts, and attractive rates and returns for users.

This is just the beginning of the Paribus roadmap. With a team that believes in steady growth, strong fundamentals, and providing a new level of security for users, Paribus will bring much-needed legitimacy to DeFi borrowing and lending.

Paribus' token (PBX) is currently trading on KuCoin, Gateio, Uniswap, Orion Protocol and ZT Exchange.

World’s Biggest Deal for Humanoid Robots Inked

NEW YORK, Aug 4, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – Robotics innovator Beyond Imagination, Inc. has entered into an agreement with SELF Labs, Inc. to provide at least 1,000 humanoid robots for use in agricultural "grow boxes"'. This is believed to be the largest deal of its kind.



SELF and Beyond are announcing a partnership to develop automated off-the-grid grow boxes. Each box will be equipped with solar panels, windmills, atmospheric water generators, 5G, and an advanced version of Beyond Imagination's Beomni robot with its Omni-Purpose AI Brain. By aligning the visions of Milan Cheeks of SELF and Dr. Harry Kloor of Beyond, this futuristic take on farming will be made possible through a uniquely powerful combination of Omni-Purpose AI, humanoid robotics, blockchain, and game technology.

The deal with SELF represents one of the largest agreements to purchase humanoid robots in the world. Cheeks says that "We are committed to purchasing at least 1,000 robots in the next five years, but if the effectiveness of our combined technology is as we project, that number could easily grow to ten thousand or more." According to a recent report by Markets and Markets, the humanoid robotics market will reach an estimated USD 17.3 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 63.5% between 2022 and 2027. The agreement with Beyond is in alignment with this prediction. Dr. Kloor commented, "Beyond Imagination expects to represent a billion USD or more of that market share by 2027, and with our partnership with SELF Labs we are well on our way to that goal."

Each grow box will be connected to a SELF Labs-powered trivia-based simulation game called Cultivate Coin, which allows users to choose a role, learn about farming and the growing process, learn how to operate a grow box business, earn rewards, and most of all take part in the growing process virtually.

The Beomni Omni-Purpose AI powered humanoid robots supplied by Beyond will work autonomously inside of the boxes to tend to the growing crops. The boxes will run on solar energy, and by using atmospheric water generator technology will not require any outside sources for power or water, making them self-sufficient.

Most robots are targeted at narrow verticals or are merely elaborate R&D demos. Beomni is different. Its thinking general-purpose robotics platform learns from human pilots who train its AI Brain to tackle increasingly sophisticated tasks autonomously. Beomni, combined with Beyond's Cloud Platform and evolving AI, can tackle limitless tasks without requiring special peripherals like industrial robots. Beomni is a fully mobile robot that is designed to work safely around humans. It is the world's first fully functional general-purpose robotic system, and the first to be beta tested at a medical facility. According to Dr. Kloor, "Working with SELF and its community will enable us to rapidly train Beomni's AI Brain to plant, care and tend, harvest, and box the crops in SELF's grow boxes."

Beomni has advanced significantly since it was revealed at CES in 2022. In April, the company demonstrated that Beomni can be operated from anyplace in the world. Additional prototyping and on-site evaluation projects are currently underway. The version Beyond will deploy in the grow boxes will be even more advanced, and will be part of Beyond's 2.0 product line of Beomni robots.

"I'm excited to bring this idea to life!" said SELF Labs founder Milan Cheeks. "Adding decentralization and automation to the farming industry will benefit everyone. While there is no single solution to solve world hunger, our automated off the grid grow boxes is one tool that will go a long way in meeting the UN's goal to reach zero hunger by 2030."

The first box will be crafted at Box For Grow in New Hampton, NY. Once assembled, it will begin operation for use within the United States.

OctaFX celebrates 11 years in the financial markets

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 3, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – OctaFX is celebrating its 11th anniversary! Here's what the broker achieved over the years and the core elements of the brand philosophy that helped it along the way. The global broker OctaFX is bigger than ever before – all thanks to the support of its clients. Below are the main achievements OctaFX has managed to accomplish over the past eleven years.



Those above are the numbers. But what is behind them? OctaFX shares the core elements of its philosophy and how they help the broker make the investment journeys of its clients as smooth as possible.

OctaFX is always online. The broker has already processed 8.8 million requests and dedicated approximately 96,800,000 minutes to resolving issues and answering the questions of its clients honestly and openly.

OctaFX is always looking for ways to improve, and therefore analyses all feedback carefully. Identifying the problems traders face when using its services or functionality they wish the broker had is what guides OctaFX's development. Apart from other significant changes, it managed to decrease the average verification process to around three minutes, with 85% of clients passing it on the first time.

Constant change in the financial world is what keeps OctaFX agile and ready to transform and develop at all times. This approach resulted in releasing its own mobile trading and copytrading apps, adding a variety of popular financial instruments ranging from cryptocurrencies to stock indices, and developing a copytrading platform with unique features for finding and copying professional traders.

Data is what OctaFX is driven by. The broker is constantly conducting research and analysis of itself, learning about the latest financial technologies – all to make sure it provides the clients not only with the best trading conditions, but also with the cutting edge technical solutions.

OctaFX is focused on the goals of its clients, and that is why it tries to eliminate all the obstacles limiting their trading experience and keeping them from realising the full potential of their diverse approaches. To help its clients boost their trading and allow for a more effective use of long-term strategies, the broker decided to remove swaps entirely this May.

To become yet closer to its clients, OctaFX decided to rebrand and adopt a fresh new look: with refined colours, space-inspired elements, and a new logo.

"All our achievements and transformations would be meaningless without our clients. It is our clients who drive our growth and allow us to always move forward. It is our clients who inspire us to be current, dynamic, innovative, confident. We thank all of them for choosing us as their broker," the OctaFX press office commented.

To mark its eleventh anniversary, OctaFX has made its usually below-the-market spreads the lowest in the industry on the MT4 and MT5 platforms. The broker has reduced the spreads by 20% on XAUUSD, EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDJPY, GBPJPY, USDCHF, XTIUSD, and US30, as well as by 25% on BTCUSD and ETHUSD.

About OctaFX

OctaFX is a global broker providing online trading services worldwide since 2011. It offers everything one needs to reach their investment goals, providing top-notch conditions utilised already by clients from over 150 countries worldwide. The company is involved in a comprehensive network of charity and humanitarian initiatives, including improvement of educational infrastructure, short-notice relief projects, supporting local communities and small to medium enterprises. On a side note, OctaFX has also won more than 45 awards since its foundation, including the 2021 'Best Forex Broker Asia' award from Global Banking & Finance Review and 2021 'Best ECN Broker' award by World Finance. www.octafx.com

Government Association Endorses Blockchain for Elections

Washington, D.C., Aug 3, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – The 2020 US elections were a painful display of a breakdown in public trust. Declining trust in elections threatens democratic institutions all over the world, and it is imperative we restore it in our democratic institutions.

US Federal law requires that overseas, military, and disabled voters have access to remote voting. States permit the use of email, fax, or mail-in ballots. However, many of these methods used today lack the security required to maintain integrity of the election results. The most important aspect in restoring trust is to manage all ballots securely, whether paper or electronic.

Susan Eustice, Chair of the Government Blockchain Association (GBA) Voting Working Group has a lifetime of experience with elections. Her father invented the first mechanical voting machine, and she has been a researcher in the election and technology field for over 60 years. Eustice stated, “the same technologies banks use to move trillions of dollars each day can be made private and secure enough for elections by adding blockchain technology”.

However, there are two reasons why mobile devices and blockchain are typically not used for federal elections:

  • There is a concern that internet-connected systems cannot be made private and secure for elections.
  • The standard used by laboratories to certify election systems is called the Voluntary Voting System Guidelines (VVSG) published by the US Elections Assistance Commission (EAC). However, the VVSG prohibits election systems connected to the internet.

The GBA has released two reports to address these issues.

The work that the GBA has done and continues to do to support the use of blockchain technology, securing elections and public confidence in public institutions is paramount. For more information visit www.GBAglobla.org or contact gerard.dache@GBAglobal.org.

Digital Health and Technology Trends in the USA

AUSTIN, TX, Aug 1, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – What role and purpose will businesses accept to impact the social contract, and how might consumer and provider empowerment might bring change to healthcare business models using technology?



The Partners in Digital Health blockchain in healthcare and telehealth portfolio both reflect and set trends in the marketplace. Here are a few trends and current issues to ponder.

Cost, place, and preference have prioritized the care at home care and care transitions as aging populations and a looming healthcare worker shortage impact the US health system, where virtual care presents an opportunity to build long term resilience into system.

Adopting Zero Trust Architecture to enhance security across agencies and businesses must quickly be adopted, following the executive order on improving the Nation's Cybersecurity (EO 14208). If you've been hacked recently, you understand the urgency.

A fully realized digital 3D world (Web3/Metaverse), creating virtual holographic experiences, including digital twins that operate in real-time, must be created for secure use. Healthcare is at the forefront with medical education initiatives and holoportation. Ambient AI, or real-time human perception technology, that enables intelligent environments is an area where technology can anticipate and respond to people's needs, customize and forecast behaviors across the continuum of care – and reduce the cost of care. Compliant AI-powered conversational patient intake can also increases time and quality time engagement with patients.

Diversity and inclusion present new market opportunities for drug discovery, startups, apps, payment models, cross boarder collaborations, market investment and more. Pandemics teach us there are significant differences in patient populations with sexual, cultural, age, and geographic diversities to consider.

The cash economy in healthcare is on the rise. A retail health revolution is occurring where employers give their employees cash instead of health insurance. Consumers pay cash for drugs and services that are cheaper than those covered through insurance – and participants don't have to deal with system bureaucracy.

Price transparency for health insurance market plans to make hospital pricing transparent for patients to compare costs for care is embraced by 85% of Americans. Consumers believe cost cutting and improving quality through transparency should be a priority. Site neutral payments are another way to level the playing field and could save the USA as much as $350 billion over the next decade.

Cryptography and applying quantum mechanics for uncrackable code for two parties to interact securely. The US is teetering on losing its competitive edge and may have already.

Blockchain will improve how the public interacts with government services and will have broad economic and social implications. Global health passes and interoperable permissioned global networks are examples and only the beginning of the wave impacting healthcare.

At ConV2X, just about every facet of blockchain technology is explored including cybersecurity and quantum computing, patient experiences, credentialing, data ownership, Metaverse, NFTs, DAOs, TradFi, privacy protection, joint workflows and processes, inventory management, fraud, chargebacks, precision medicine, zero trust frameworks, standards and more.

A real revolution of borderless interoperability, led by consumers, activists and pioneers, challenging market integrity and sensibilities is well underway.
