The series will feature interviews with some of the world’s top CEOs and thought leaders, many of whom led history-making transactions.
The podcast will launch Wednesday, September 23, 2020, featuring in-depth, conversational interviews with leaders like:

New York City, NY, 2020-Sep-15 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — A custom software development company PixelPlex informed about completing their work on Qtum Wallet – a cryptocurrency mobile wallet for Android and iOS. The wallet is able to execute multi-currency transactions and has ERC20 token support, smart contact builder, and advanced security features.
The Qtum development goals
The company shared the details about their new project – Qtum mobile wallet for Android and IOS. Their goal was to build a secure user-friendly wallet for the Qtum blockchain platform with all necessary capabilities such as Touch ID, 2FA protection, and transaction templates. UI/UX design for Android and iOS was used for simple navigation. High security was provided by Shamir’s secret encryption and iOS Secure Enclave & Android KeyStore support.
The developers commented on how exactly they managed to achieve such high security in their cryptocurrency wallet development. With the implemented client-side encryption, the Qtum mobile wallet encodes private keys and all transaction data on the client’s mobile device. The user account, private keys, and all transactions are secured before any information reaches a third-party server. The wallet app is also backed with 2-factor authentication, PIN protection, an auto-lock feature, and Touch ID / Face ID biometric authentication.
Important features for performing crypto operations
Mobile wallet development was a complex task, and in the end, Qtum wallet included all the essential features for performing crypto transactions. The wallet is integrated with the top exchanges for crypto trading, works with multiple currencies, includes support for cold-storage account recovery, QR codes leading to a payment widget, and has NFC support to streamline payments. The client will also get notifications about completed transactions and exchange rate changes.
As a result, Qtum wallet from PixelPlex became an easy-to-use, but yet a powerful tool for multicurrency management and tamper-proof peer-to-peer transactions.
Baltimore, MD, 2020-Aug-28 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — CoapTech LLC (Baltimore, MD), a leading medical device start-up pioneering the world’s first and only ultrasound-based feeding tube placement system, announced today the closing of a Series B investment of $7 million led by Palo Alto-based medical device venture capital firm Hunniwell Lake Ventures. The financing will be used to fund CoapTech’s commercialization of its FDA-cleared PUMA-G System.
By simplifying gastrostomy procedures to the point where they can be conducted at the patient’s bedside with ultrasound, hospitals using PUMA-G benefit by freeing up surgical suites and personnel resources for COVID and other clinical priorities, minimizing cross-contamination, and improving efficiencies in care.
CoapTech was founded by critical care physician Dr. Steven Tropello and clinical innovation researcher Howard Carolan, to reduce unnecessary delays, harm, and costs for feeding tube placement, a vital therapy for millions of patients each year around the world.
Howard Carolan, CEO and Co-Founder, states: “We have been receiving fantastic feedback from hospitals in our initial launch program, which are using the PUMA-G System to revolutionize feeding tube placement. By using ultrasound at the patient bedside, rather than the conventional approach of orchestrating expensive and inefficient consults, critical care physicians are completing these procedures in minutes, on the same shift a feeding tube is first indicated. We’re seeing early indications those efficiencies result in patients leaving the ICU sooner, which saves hospitals many thousands of dollars per admission. A substantial portion of this new funding is from physicians who have seen the device and believe it can become the new default method for feeding tube placement.”
Dr. Steven Tropello elaborates, “the PUMA-G System is proving itself ready for standard-of-care adoption for safe and timely gastrostomy tube placement. It is also proving a powerful approach in the fight against COVID, by completely eliminating transport of patients, team members, and reprocessed tools throughout the hospital in favor of a sterile, disposable, bedside solution. I am also very excited about other clinical applications of the PUMA platform we are developing and aim to have for patients in the near future.”
This Series B investment was led by Hunniwell Lake Ventures, a Palo Alto-based medical device venture capital firm.
Daniel Teo, Managing Partner at Hunniwell Lake Ventures, further states “Coaptech’s PUMA System has the potential to transform gastrostomy and many other surgical procedures by allowing them to be performed using ultrasound at the bedside, in hospitals, ambulatory centers, skilled nursing facilities, and LTACHs (Long-term Acute Care Hospitals). This also benefits patients by bringing the procedure closer to the Point-of-Demand (PoD) and giving them more options with a larger community of medical providers capable of performing the procedure.
BUCHAREST, Romania, 7-Aug-2020 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — Digi Communications N.V. (“Digi” or the “Company”) announces that on 14 August 2020 (at 14:00 UK time / 16:00 EEST – Romania local time) it will host a conference call to discuss the H1 2020 financial results.
Dallas, TX, USA, 2020-Aug-04 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — The Bitcoin core network today runs on the proof of work algorithm. It leaves the network open to the 51% attack, also it is costly to mine and harmful for the environment. The PoW mechanism has also been a hindrance to scalability.
However, numerous innovations are trying to deal with the issues, facing the Bitcoin network while preserving certain unique aspects of the original concept. For instance, the 21 million tokens supply along with the proven code-base that has been improved over a decade is worth preserving.
The Bitcoin Proof of Stake coin reserves the strongest aspect of the Bitcoin network with a flexible proof of stake algorithm. It presents a new paradigm in the utility of crypto. The Bitcoin PoS coin preserves everything that Bitcoin has while bringing new development to the blockchain technology.
Driving Mass Adoption
When Satoshi Nakamoto launched Bitcoin about a decade ago, his goal was mass adoption of crypto that would replace the current financial system. However, that goal has not been achieved. Many crypto projects in existence today have numerous issues that prevent mass adoption.
The Bitcoin PoS project aims to advance Satoshi Nakamoto’s vision of a decentralized financial network that is independent of centralized control. Bitcoin Proof of Stake is designed to be scalable and easy to use. The goal is to give access of banking services to billions of people globally. To achieve this, Bitcoin PoS aims to be a coin for ordinary retail payments.
About the Proof of Stake Mechanism
The Bitcoin network is secured using a proof of work mechanism. However, the PoW mechanism is energy-intensive and requires expensive mining rigs to secure. The proof of stake mechanism wants to replace how consensus is achieved. Instead of using PoW, the staker that generates a block has to provide proof that they have access to given number of coins.
Generating the block will entail the sending of coins to oneself, which proves ownership. The amount of coins needed for staking is determined via a difficulty adjustment model that is similar to the PoW mechanism. The goal is to ensure an approximate constant block time. Just like PoW, the block generation process will result in rewards via a transaction fee and supply model.
Bitcoin PoS Deals with the Bitcoin Centralization Problems
The Bitcoin network appears perfect to its proponents. However, it has a problem with centralization. The high cost of power and the expensive mining rigs mean that only a few select companies can afford to mine the BTC network.
The result is that only those with access to cheap power can secure the network. Today, most of those miners are located in China, which has led to a high concentration of mining power in one region. In effect, Chinese miners control the Bitcoin network. It was not the vision of decentralization that Satoshi Nakamoto had in mind.
To make the issue worse, the places where the cost of power is low also have highly authoritarian systems of government. Another issue is that in nations where the cost of power is high do not recognize BTC mining as a business. Thus, miners do not get access to subsidized power. It has led to the proliferation of mining cartels with some companies controlling as much as 5% of the mining power.
For retail miners, the only solution is to join mining pools, which effectively control all of the mining power of BTC. As a result, BTC is highly centralized in the current setup and it will only continue being centralized in the future.
Bitcoin PoS Solves the Issue
One of the issues that Bitcoin Proof of Stake solves is the cost of power. The proof of stake mechanism cuts the cost of power by 99%. As a result, it ensures that it will difficult from any entity to monopolize the network. The result is that Bitcoin PoS is achieving the vision of Satoshi Nakamoto.
The Current State of Bitcoin PoS
While Bitcoin Proof of Stake uses a proof of stake mechanism, the Bitcoin PoS still keeps up with upgrades to the Bitcoin network. Any upgrade made by the developers are added to the Bitcoin PoS blockchain. Today, the coin is tradable on crypto exchanges; it has a market price of USD 89.07 according to data on CoinMarketCap. It has a market cap of $308,995,384 and it is ranked at 40 by market cap in the world but actual raking on coinmarketcap.com is 205 because of their raking systems.

Under these Agreements, RCS&RDS will operate the networks of the Assignors and will provide communications services to the clients, in exchange of the payment by RCS & RDS of a rent.
The condition precedent under the Agreements of obtaining the Competition Council’s authorisation is now met; the non-object decision being subject to RCS&RDS complying with the commitments it had offered and that were accepted by the competition authority („Commitments”).
The Commitments were offered by RCS&RDS in order to address the Competition Council’s concerns regarding the merger and they are broadly two sided, refering to:
– the relationship between RCS&RDS and the clients who will become RCS&RDS customers pursuant to the Agreements, and
– the relationship between RCS&RDS and the Tv Channel providers.
The Commitments regarding the clients will be binding for a period of three years as of the date of the authorisation and they mainly refer to the undertaking made by RCS&RDS to upgarde the networks and to provide to at least 95% of the clients communications services of the same technical quality as offered to its existing customers. In addition, RCS&RDS has to offer to all customers the opportunity to benefit from the packages and prices offered by RCS&RDS to its existing customers and refrain from price increases during the three year period under review.
The commitment regarding TV Channel providers is binding for a five-year period as of the date of the authorisation. The commitment refers to the undertaking made by RCS&RDS that, in case it does not reach a commercial agreement with any TV Channel provider for inclusion of such channel into its Basic TV Package, then it will offer the provider the possibility to carry such channel as a pay tv offering which shall be provided to customers in exchange for an additional charge. The price of such pay tv channel will be mainly determined by the TV Channel provider.
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., United States, 20-Jul-2020 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — TABS Score™ has just deployed their newest addition to the suite of products available on their Diligence-as-a-Service (DaaS) platform – TABS | EU Assessment, (available in both Lite and Suite versions). The rollout was strategically timed to complement the rapidly increasing requests by TABS’ existing European (and those that focus on Europe as a market) customers, as there are quite a few differences in terms of rules, processes, and regulations that European ventures face differently than US-based startups. The new model entails the addition of several nested decision trees to augment the already-powerful nucleus of the Machine Learning algorithm, as well as a new ESG, regulatory, and analytics sections to properly address the differences between American and European resources, financing, policies, accounting practices and more. The EU version of the Assessment will mirror the US Assessment in functionality and output but will provide comparative analytics between them and their counterparts on the global market and allow companies to complete the Assessment in a language of their preference.
Mayflower Ventures, a micro-fund being formed by Wall Street Veteran Marshall Sterman, has already made the decision to integrate a Diligence-as-a-Service as part of their investment process which pitching to investors for the fund.
“Both the committed and prospective LPs love the fact that instead of asking for higher management fees to hire an analyst team in house, we are making smart lateral decisions to use a powerful software like TABS to strengthen and accompany our own internal diligence processes,” Sterman says.
As TABS expands to Europe and subsequently, their footprint across the globe, they will soon be modifying the assessment to meet the needs of ventures in other venture hotspots as well, the APAC region being the first. The comprehensiveness and ever-evolving nature of the TABS Score and its customizable solutions has made the Fin-Tech company one of the most sought-after Diligence-as-a-Service providers, with accolades coming from founders, investors, accelerators, and consultants (legal, accounting, fundraising, etc.)
TABS has already gained significant traction in the US markets, partially attributable to the Covid-19 virus and the cancellations of physical meetings. Engineered by successful serial entrepreneurs and veteran seed investors, the TABS Suite, which includes the TABS Score & Valuation assessment, has helped investors assess the viability of a business, significantly augmenting their diligence process in a fraction of the time and cost. Early-stage companies on the other hand increase the probability of attracting the attention of a potential investor by proactively going through the process.
