CryptoSecure Free Transfers Target PayPal and Western Union

CryptoSecure to disrupt the Remittance Market offering FREE instant global money transfers for crypto and fiat currencies.

CryptoSecure Free Transfers Target PayPal and Western Union

BELIZE CITY, BELIZE June 11, 2018 – CryptoSecure.com (through its service operator Crypto Investor, Inc.) announces the launch of its ground-breaking fiat and cryptocurrency wallet, available free as from this week at: https://wallet.cryptosecure.com

The Wallet can be used for cryptocurrencies immediately.

After distribution of the Wallet debit cards in Q3, 2018 they are positioned to disrupt the global remittance market with instant FREE money transfers.

The May Special Report in Economist Magazine advised the average cost of sending $200 is between 7.2% to 9.1% and that the UN Sustainable Development priority is to see 3% cost. CryptoSecure cuts these fees to zero.

This $500 billion per year market is dominated by parties including Western Union, Pay Pal, and MoneyGram and promoted as holding significant potential for blockchain innovation, but scalability, security, and compliance issues have not been successfully resolved.

The CryptoSecure Platform incorporates and integrates blockchain, leading-edge unprecedented security, and industry-proven trusted wallets processing transactions at 1,000s per second since 2003, and using distributed ledgers since 2007 for billions of dollars.

The CryptoSecure Wallet transaction processing speed overcomes the blockchain scalability roadblock that many have been trying to resolve:

– PayPal only recently applied for a patent to speed virtual currency transactions
– Crypto projects OmiseGo, Cypherium, Lightning Network, Lightning Labs, Acinq, TIM, and others

are all working on scalability solutions.

The CryptoSecure Wallets and Debit Cards feature:

-FREE instant currency transfers – domestic or international
-Real-time conversion of cryptocurrency to fiat currencies
-Use at ATMs and for purchases online or in stores worldwide
-Use in the Platform Cryptocurrency Exchange (launching Q4 2018)
-Ultra-secure and compliant with KYC, AML, BSA, CFTC, FATCA, etc.
-Single sign-on seamlessly incorporates 3F Authentication. No identity theft or need to remember private keys, use multiple wallets, addresses or logins
-Monitored, regulated, and audited independently by third-party industry leaders
-Mobile app launching Q4 2018

A major global marketing initiative offering value incentives for CryptoSecure Wallets adoption is scheduled to commence following the Wallet market release.

CryptoSecure Platform

The Platform encompasses technologies provided and/or integrated through relationships with its Technical Team, Key Capital (OTC Pink: KCPC), Jentu Technologies, Quantus, and preCharge. The Platform“s strong security is delivered through layered protocols that include access control, network security solutions, Proof of Identity, Authority, and Stake.

Frankfurt am Main, 23 May 2018: Degussa Goldhandel GmbH is now cooperating with precious metal retailer GoldSilver Central Pte Ltd in Singapore. The partnership between both providers who are leaders in their respective markets covers the distribution of Degussa bullion bars as well as gift items made out of gold and silver. GoldSilver Central will offer the products of Europe“s biggest precious metal retailer in its own stores as well as via its online shop ( www.goldsilvercentral.com.sg).

The cooperation with the Singaporean precious metal specialist positions the presence of Degussa and its products in the Asian region on a broader basis and will open up new growth potential.

„Due to the cooperation with GoldSilver Central, we are able to give new impetus to our presence in Asia,“ said Raphael Scherer, Chief International Officer (CIO) and member of the Degussa management board. „With this step we also want to strengthen our position in Singapore, one of the most important precious metal trading centres in Asia and offer local customers access to the Degussa gold and silver bars as well as our lifestyle items.“

Since its launch in 2011, Degussa has developed into the European market leader amongst the independent precious metal retailers with branches in ten sites in Germany as well as internationally in Zurich, Geneva and Madrid. Furthermore, in 2013 the company also took over London precious metals company Sharps Pixley.

„We are extremely proud to be part of this collaboration with Degussa and are looking forward to exploring new strategies for providing enhanced precious metals investment solutions in Asia,“ said Brian Lan, Managing Director of GoldSilver Central. „The start of this partnership enables both companies to leverage on each other for more resources to create new business opportunities and most importantly, to benefit Precious Metals Investors on a regional scale.“

GoldSilver Central was also established in 2011, in Singapore, and specialises in the physical trading of gold, silver and platinum for both individuals and businesses. Hereby the company offers a wide range of products and services with the aim of offering private investors the opportunity to invest in precious metals at competitive prices such as the first spot deliverable precious metals platform – GSC Live!. GoldSilver Central is a member of the Singapore Bullion Market Association (SBMA) which was founded in 1993 with the aim of making Singapore a centre for gold trading in South East Asia.

Frickenhausen, May 14, 2018 – Greiner Bio-One North America, Inc. has acquired 3D Cell Culture Technology previously owned by Nano3D Biosciences, Inc. As an international distributor of these products since 2016, Greiner Bio-One has now taken the initiative to become a premier provider of this technology worldwide. Magnetic 3D cell culture has become a disruptive technology in the research marketplace by offering an improved method for growing cells and driving results in new pathways to disease treatment and prevention.

Heinz Schmid, CEO of Greiner Bio-One BioScience commented on this strategic acquisition: „The potential for growth in the 3D cell culture market is amazingly vast with laboratories and research facilities utilising this new technology daily to find cures for disease and improve the existing cell culture methodology. The acquisition of a magnetic 3D cell culture technology is just one of Greiner Bio-One’s ongoing efforts to advance scientific research and improve health, while providing researchers access to the best products.“

Nano3D Biosciences, Inc. President and Chief Scientific Officer, Glauco Souza: „We are delighted to have completed this acquisition with Greiner Bio-One. The synergy between Nano3D’s technology and Greiner Bio-One’s innovation in tissue culture makes this an excellent match to further advance magnetic 3D cell culture.“

About 3D cell culture technology:

Magnetic 3D cell culture is an innovative technology that allows for the magnetisation of cells that can then be aggregated through levitation or bioprinted to form a structurally and biologically representative 3D model in vitro. This is a crucial improvement over previously used cell culture methods due to its ability to better recreate cell growth and behaviour as it would be found in the body.
The CELLSTAR cell culture vessels with cell-repellent surface from Greiner Bio-One are ideal for cultivating cells to form three-dimensional structures. Outstanding results can be achieved, particularly when they are used in combination with the technology from Nano3D Biosciences.

German gambling market grows by 300 million euros

– New Goldmedia report analyses current developments in the German betting and gambling market
– Record growth in the betting market generates a 33 per cent increase in gross betting revenue from 2015 to 2017

German gambling market grows by 300 million euros

© Goldmedia 2018, German Gambling Market, Gross Gaming Revenue 2015-2017

Berlin, May 8, 2018. The German gambling market is continuing to grow. In 2017, the German gambling market (lotteries, bets, gaming machines and casinos) generated a gross gaming revenue of 13.5 billion euros which is an increase of 300 million euros compared with 2016. This equates to additional biennial earnings of 1billion euros compared with 2015. Most of the gambling segments benefited from the overall positive economic development in Germany, however, this varied from segment to segment.

These findings are part of the new report German Gambling Market Monitor 2018 published by Goldmedia Strategy Consulting ( www.goldmedia.com).

++ Record growth in the betting segment, however, lotteries are under pressure

In 2017, betting notched up the strongest level of growth of all the gambling segments with a 17 per cent plus in gross gaming revenue (wagers minus payouts) compared with 2016. In comparison with 2015, the market has grown by 33 per cent in total. This positive trend is expected to continue. The upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia will stimulate additional revenue growth for the 90+ sports betting operators who are active in the German market. Furthermore, the dysfunctional regulatory policies which are still in effect in Germany are continuing to provide favourable operating conditions which are supporting further growth.

However, the German lottery segment remains static and gross gaming revenue has fallen by 3 per cent, primarily due to declining ticket sales in the highest grossing 6aus49 lottery game. In addition, the state-owned lotteries are experiencing aggressive competition from online lotteries operating from Malta without a German licence.

++ Changes in the gaming machines segment

Gaming machines achieved yet another very profitable year, generating a gross gaming revenue of over 7billion euros in 2017. However, significant structural changes in the market are imminent following the introduction of new regulations. Stricter rules governing the total number of gaming halls and the minimum distance allowed between them may lead to a considerable reduction in the number of gaming venues in the medium term. Even though the gaming machine operators have initiated more than 1,000 legal proceedings to stall the implementation of these policies, the strong market growth that has been seen in recent years has now come to a halt.

The Goldmedia report German Gambling Market Monitor 2018 examines the development of the German gambling market through a segment-by-segment analysis of the lottery, casino, betting and gaming machines markets. In addition to presenting an analysis of the years 2015 to 2017, the report also provides gross gaming revenue forecasts for 2018.

New Krugerrand bond guarantees the physical delivery of gold to 100 per cent

New Krugerrand bond guarantees the physical delivery of gold to 100 per cent

Krugerrand bullion gold coins (Source: Rand Refinery)

Johannesburg, South Africa, 8 May 2018: The Krugerrand (1oz) gold bond which is tradable on the stock exchange and physically covered by the Krugerrand gold coin with a fine gold content of at least 916,66/1000 securitises the right to delivery of the coins to 100 per cent. This is ensured by BayernLB Nuremberg and guaranteed to investors.

In comparison to other listed gold products, investors invest in actual 1 oz bullion coins which can, upon request, be delivered to them at any time – something which occurs automatically upon final maturity after 10 years. From a legal viewpoint, the Krugerrand bond (ISIN / WKN: DE000A2F6KP1 / A2F6KP) is a bearer bond which is traded as a security on the stock exchange (unofficial market of the Stuttgart Exchange) during the entire period.

Hereby BayernLB, which is responsible for the storage of the coins, assumes the packaging and dispatch to the investor. The forms which must be completed and detailed information is available on the „Information leaflet on the transport of the Krugerrand gold coins“ which is available on the website of the issuer, the Gesellschaft zur Verbriefung von Lieferansprüchen auf Edelmetalle mbH (G.V.L.E.).

With regard to the coffered stock of Krugerrand gold coins, BayernLB has finalised an insurance policy which insures the stock values to their full value against any losses resulting from particular risks. The transport of the coins to the investors is also insured.

Further information is available on www.kruegerrand-anleihe.de (German).

Rand Refinery together with the South African Mint manufactures the bullion coin in South Africa. To date, Rand Refinery has processed nearly 50,000 tons of gold, which corresponds to about one-third of all the gold ever mined in the world. Rand Refinery was founded in Germiston, South Africa in 1920 by the Chamber of Mines, in order to process the raw gold that was being mined in the mines around Johannesburg and to market it throughout the world. The company processes almost all the gold mined in South Africa, as well as a considerable portion of the precious metal that is mined on the African continent. In addition to the Krugerrand, that world-famous gold coin, the company also sells gold bars weighing from one gram up to one kilogram. The most famous bars in Europe are the „elephant bars“, which are pure gold ingots with an elephant motif on the reverse side. Rand Refinery is a member of the London bullion market (London Bullion Market Association). In addition to gold trading in London, the company is also listed on the New York Commodities Exchange (COMEX), the Tokyo Commodities Exchange (TOCOM) and the Dubai Good Delivery Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) with „Good Delivery Status“.

estos management reorganization

Heinrich Moser, Hille Vogel, Florian Bock, Christoph Lösch, Raphael Bossek, Stefan Micko

Starnberg, 3/5/2018
With immediate effect, the two founders of estos, Stefan Hobratschk and Stephan Eckbauer, have withdrawn from all operational functions. In over twenty years, they have successfully made the independent software manufacturer one of the leading companies in the unified communications segment with more than 80 employees in Germany alone. Their tasks and responsibilities have been taken-over by Florian Bock (Chief Financial Officer) and Christoph Lösch (Chief Innovation Officer), who over the last nine years have already represented estos as managing directors.

Florian Bock and Christoph Lösch have recently reorganized the estos management team. The vice presidents Stefan Micko (Research and Development), Raphael Bossek (Products), Hille Vogel (Markets and Relations) and Heinrich Moser (Services), have already proven themselves in operational roles at estos and will assume responsibilities in their own areas. Raphael Bossek and Hille Vogel obtain full powers of attorney. Stefan Micko and Heinrich Moser are provided with the power of attorney in their areas of responsibility.
The reorganization and broadening of management competences should be a clear signal to partners and customers: estos wants to develop in the dynamic and challenging ICT market, not only with technical competence and innovative software, but also with outstanding services and even better customer orientation.

Aminolipin protects the living and preserves the dead

4.5 million euros of GO-Bio funding for University Hospital Tübingen project to develop formaldehyde substitute

Aminolipin protects the living and preserves the dead

Prof. Dr. Bernhard Hirt, Institute of Clinical Anatomy and Cell Analysis, Tübingen University (Source: Manfred Mauz)

(Stuttgart/Tübingen/Berlin) – Professor Bernhard Hirt from University Hospital Tübingen’s Institute of Clinical Anatomy and Cell Analysis is one of the beneficiaries of the latest GO-Bio funding from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). He and his research team will be receiving 4.5 million euros over the next three years to take aminolipin to market maturity with a view to replacing highly toxic formaldehyde as a fixing and preservation agent for tissue and organs. The presentation took place last Wednesday at the German Biotechnology Days in Berlin.

For over 100 years, pathologists, anatomists and undertakers have been using formaldehyde to preserve biological tissue and even entire bodies. The aldehyde methanal, as it is officially called in international scientific circles, is now known to be so toxic and carcinogenic, however, that some academic institutions‘ accident insurers no longer permit its use following the application of stricter thresholds. Preserving organs and bodies is sometimes essential, though, for example to provide future doctors with practical training. They study human anatomy and practice operations on bodies left to medical science. These corpses need to look and feel as similar as possible to a live patient.

A team of chemists, biologists and doctors from University Hospital Tübingen’s Institute of Clinical Anatomy and Cell Analysis has now developed and filed a patent application for a substitute. In all trials to date, it has demonstrated outstanding fixing and preserving properties for organs and tissue without being harmful to health. The project manager and Medical Director of the institute, Professor Bernhard Hirt, is therefore confident that this new substance will quickly replace formaldehyde in anatomical applications and for interments. „We synthesise aminolipin from near-natural substances. In several trials, it has been shown to inhibit enzymes that are responsible for decomposition, exhibit a wide antimicrobial efficacy spectrum and be highly efficient in halting the process of putrefaction,“ he says.

Having won over the biotechnology funding initiative’s panel of experts, the project was selected to benefit from GO-Bio support. Secretary of State Dr. Georg Schütte from the BMBF congratulated the winners of the latest GO-Bio selection competition at the German Biotechnology Days on 18 and 19 April in Berlin. Over the next three years, the research teams will receive funding to further develop their ideas and turn them into commercial products and services.

The seven selection processes since the start of 2005 have provided – or are still providing – funding for a total of 50 teams. In the coming three years, the research team from Tübingen will be given 4.5 million euros to optimise the manufacturing process for aminolipin and demonstrate its effectiveness in the proof of concept. During this period, it is planned to found a start-up to market the substance.

As Dr. Klaus Eichenberg, Managing Director of BioRegio STERN Management GmbH, explains: „Scientific research produces numerous good ideas, but in the life sciences it takes a lot of time and money to turn these into a market-ready product. GO-Bio funding is targeted at the early phase of projects and most of the new companies founded to date are doing very well, so I’m already looking forward to another successful start-up in the STERN BioRegion.“

About BioRegio STERN Management GmbH:
BioRegio STERN Management GmbH promotes economic development in the life sciences industry, helping to strengthen the region as a business location by supporting innovations and start-up companies in the public interest.
