Phantasma Chain Partners With Save Planet Earth to Deliver Transparent & Immutable Carbon Credit Smart NFTs

The partnership enables issuance of Carbon Credit NFTs to individuals and businesses that wish to offset their carbon footprint.

Phantasma Chain and Save The Planet

Phantasma Chain and Save The Planet

CHICAGO, Oct. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The leading Smart NFT blockchain Phantasma Chain has recently announced a partnership with Save Planet Earth enabling Save Planet Earth to issue transparent, immutable, and certified Carbon Credit NFTs using Phantasma’s Smart NFT technology.

After researching multiple service providers, Save Planet Earth has selected Phantasma due to its, by design, minuscule carbon footprint. Phantasma itself has been on a quest to minimize its carbon footprint even more, eventually becoming CARBON NEGATIVE. Save Planet Earth is facilitating this goal.

The partnership enables Save Planet Earth to issue Carbon Credit NFTs to individuals and businesses that wish to offset their carbon footprint. Due to the immutable nature of Phantasma’s blockchain and the certification accreditation of Save Planet Earth, the holders of these NFTs can be certain that purchasing these NFTs result in a verifiable carbon offset.

Since Phantasma Chain will be purchasing these NFTs themselves, users of the chain can be assured that their activities will not result in a carbon footprint. This applies to users of the blockchain, every dApp creator, and those using their dApps. Even better, due to the Phantasma blockchain going carbon negative, every single action on the blockchain will lower the carbon footprint. Using the Phantasma blockchain will help Save Planet Earth.

This partnership allows digital media applications to directly access this initiative, opening the possibilities of greater masses contributing to saving planet earth while they embark on their favorite digital activities.

An NFT is a Non-Fungible Token that is unique and is not interchangeable. NFTs are immutable units of data stored on a decentralized blockchain, essentially a global base of data. Phantasma’s Smart NFT technology provides superior functionality that lends itself well to video games and applications that require smart functionality.

For additional information on the Phantasma Chain & Save The Planet Smart NFT initiative, contact Gary Ollivier at gary@phantasma.io or visit https://www.phantasma.io.

Webtel.mobi’s 21st Century TUV Digital Currency Enables Instant CBDC-Equivalent Acquisition and Usage by All Entities Worldwide

WM’s TUV Digital Currency is already a tested, proven, due diligenced, refined and fully operational Global CBDC-equivalent for all currencies. It can be seamlessly adopted and used by any entities worldwide with immediate effect

An example of globally-functional TUV Digital Currencies for countries that are still trying to create a globally-functional CBDC

ST PETER PORT, Guernsey and NEW YORK, Oct. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Global Telephony Provider Webtel.mobi’s 21st Century replica of the existing Global Financial System follows the same structure to ensure proper control.

It differs only in:

  1. The Components – which have been optimized to 21st Century standards and capacities. These increase security, decrease transaction times, remove unnecessary intermediaries, lower, or remove all costs, and function 24/7/365 instead of 24/5/365.
  2. The Transaction Flows – in that WM’s Global Financial System replica enables Pure Peer-to-Peer (“PP2P”) Transactions between all Members.
  3. The Management and Supervision – in that WM’s Artificial Intelligence Complex Adaptive System (known within WM as “HAL”), and WM’s Global VSMP and Agent complement, are jointly able to exercise better and closer management and supervision of all transactions than the current system
  4. The Running Costs / Operational Costs – which for the current Global Financial System are in the very high USD Trillions, and for WM are multiple factors lower in cost.
  5. The standard of Anti Money Laundering – in the current system, there are tens of thousands of entry points (Bank Branches Worldwide) and tens of thousands of destinations (Bank Branches Worldwide) – for tens of millions of potential routings and combination. This makes it virtually impossible to detect all so-called “layering” techniques for Money Laundering. In the WM System there is only one entry point and one exit point, with every transaction able to be monitored from cradle to grave. There is zero possibility for so-called “layering” to take place.

A Comparison between the Structure and Flow of the Current Global Financial System and the Structure of WM’s Global Financial System

The WM System has been robustly checked. Reviewed, due diligenced and optimized over nine years of full operational testing, and none of its attributes are theoretical or aspired to. They are all proven, due diligenced and fully-operational worldwide – and have been for some time.

Although the WM System is set for PP2P transactions between all its (and its VSMPs’) Members worldwide, WM’s Complex Adaptive System is structured in a Modular format, and it facilitates any variation of the Transaction Flows within the System.

As an example, WM already has what are known as “Restricted VSMPs” and/or “Closed and Restricted VSMPs”. These enables organizations – at any level, and with any number of their own sub-entities and clients – to have a VSMP, or multiple (hundreds) of VSMPs, structured for them that only allow their own entities, sub-entities, and clients to enter and use among themselves.

An Illustration of the Transaction Flows in the WM Global Financial System

Moreover, WM’s VSMPs – or VSMP chains, can also be electively set to be segmentalized by country, by region, by currency and/or by other delineators. It can also be electively set to mandate transfers, currency conversions or swaps or other transactions to only be done through designated VSMPs.

In other words, it can be set to exactly replicate the transaction Flows of the current Global Financial System – just without the tens-of-thousands of intermediary organizations required for the current Global Financial System to function.

WM’s TUV Digital Currency is also fully functional in, and for, every currency, and already has all the (proposed) characteristics of Wholesale and Retail CBDCs. It also has a vastly higher number of characteristics that have not yet been identified as absolute requirements – which they are – for a functioning Global, Secure, Distributable, Accessible, Transferable, Convertible, and Redeemable CBDC.

WM also has the fully operational Global Exchange Mechanism – required for any contemplated shift to a Global Digital Economy based upon Global Digital Currency.

If adopted for use by current entities within the Global Financial System, these enable various long sought-after results to be immediately acquired and achieved, with no further cost or time utilization. Among other results, instant achievements include:

  1. A fully-functional and fit-for purpose Global CBDC-equivalent in, and for, any currencies.
  2. A Global Cashless society (in a benign manner)
  3. Fusion of the advantages of Digital Money and Cash Money – with negative aspects of each removed (WM’s TUV Digital Currency).
  4. Inclusion of all Unbanked Persons worldwide into a Global Digital Economy.
  5. A lower cost – a more rapid and more secure alternative to the SWIFT System.
  6. A lower-cost, instant and more stable PvP and RTGS alternative to the current Global FX Market.
  7. A lower-cost and more secure alternative to many transaction types (WM’s “Smart TUV”).
  8. A fully functional International Clearing Union / Global Clearing System (the WM System).
  9. Increased Security, Eradication of the “layering” potential for Money Laundering, greater AML capacities, lower transaction costs, faster transaction speeds, real-time administration and record-keeping, higher and greater security, 24/7/365 functionality and removal of systemic stress for PvP and RTGS settlements.

Furthermore, WM’s System is specifically configured to enable existing entities within the current Global Financial System to begin to utilize it immediately – if they wish to.

Whether it be for immediate utilization of CBDC-equivalent Global Digital Currency in their own currency, setting up their own Banks + Branches + Clients in a Closed and Restricted VSMP Stream, or anything else that is part of the current Financial System’s structure – it already exists within the WM System. It can therefore be structured or implemented for any party, on demand.

Therefore, there is no rational requirement to continue with any more years of research and discussion on aspirational attempts at CBDC-creation at the cost of more years of wasted time and more multi-Billion or Trillions of wasted Dollars.

This is because – that which is being aspired to already exists, as a fully-operational worldwide reality.

Hyris Brings to Market Worldwide a New Test That Can Quickly Detect the Body’s T-Cell Immune Response to SARS-CoV-2, Thanks to a Partnership With Singapore’s Duke-NUS Medical

Hyris developed a rapid T-cell test to track patients’ immunity levels to SARS-CoV-2 for global clinical use after having inked an exclusive licensing agreement with Duke-NUS Medical School. This new solution leverages the Hyris SystemTM, a proprietary platform that enables genetic testing in any setting, at any time, with results available in real-time through its AI-powered platform.

Hyris supports research over COVID-19 Immunity

LONDON, Oct. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — After almost two years of fight against COVID-19, governments, NGOs, and corporations are now focusing on strategies and solutions to boost population immunity and move onto the next phase – possibly out of the pandemic.

Hyris, a global, innovation-based biotechnology company renowned for its inclusive approach to genetic analysis, offers a wide range of solutions to support medical professionals and decision-makers in the fight against COVID-19. The proprietary genetic testing Hyris SystemTM has been successfully used to detect the presence of the Coronavirus on surfaces and environments (the SARS-CoV-2 Environmental test) and the infection COVID-19 into individuals (SARS-CoV-2 Human test). The tests have been able to reliably detect the presence of all the main Variants of Concern since July 2020, helping to keep people safe around the world effectively.

Alongside with limiting the spread of SARS-CoV-2 new variants and potential hotspots, getting high immunity rates among populations is the number one priority for policymakers and health institutions,” says Stefano Lo Priore, Founder and CEO at Hyris. “Hyris integrated its solutions with a simple yet effective test, to measure a patient T-cell immune response to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes COVID-19.”

The T-cell clinical test kit was developed through an exclusive licensing agreement between Hyris and Duke-NUS Medical School. “This new kit enables quick evaluation of T-cell immune responses in COVID-19 convalescent patients as well as vaccinated people,” adds Isabella Della Noce, Chief Biologist at Hyris. “This is a new dimension for vaccine strategies as we face the threat of new virus variants.”

Led by Professor Antonio Bertoletti from the Programme in Emerging Infectious Diseases at Duke-NUS, the research team discovered a simple and rapid method to measure the T-cell immune response to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The study, titled “Rapid measurement of SARS-CoV-2 spike T cells in whole blood from vaccinated and naturally infected individuals“, was published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.

According to Duke-NUS’ press release, this discovery allows a rapid and large-scale expansion of studies to track T-cell activity across the world while not requiring specialised or expensive equipment, helping to define the correlates of protection from T-cells and antibodies for the development of COVID-19 vaccines.

Many progressive organisations and medical centres worldwide have already chosen the Hyris System™ as the ideal ‘Point of Care’ solution in the fight against COVID-19. Such a test is a prime example of how scientific innovation is key to the fight against the SARS-CoV-2 virus. “Today, more than ever before, we need wider access to diagnostic systems and tests, but also to support and validate vaccination campaigns around the world,” concludes Lo Priore.

Sonicbidder.com Soars With Trifecta of International Online Auto Auctions

Featured Image for Sonicbidder.com

Featured Image for Sonicbidder.com

LEBANON, Mo., Oct. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Though many cars sold at Sonicbidder.com’s Spring Cleaning Auction, it was seen as a modest victory amongst the feats before. When three auctions in three weeks were announced, skeptics dismissed the relatively new company. Nonetheless, frequent consignors returned and new sellers joined. Loyalty and ambition were rewarded as Sonicbidder.com’s trifecta sold MANY cars and defied all expectations. Sonicbidder.com continues to be the foremost online auction platform to sell internationally.

Muscle Car Madness featured iconic Mopars and muscle cars. A lot was riding on its shoulders. The auction would set the tone for the rest of the fall season, and set the tone it did! International bidders, including Sweden and Canada, showed up to buy. A 2008 Ford Mustang Roush 428R GT (Stage 3) hammered for $28,600. A 1965 Corvette Stingray hammered for $80,300 during the sale as well. These numbers came after the world record 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda sold for a show-stopping $1,210,000 a week BEFORE the auction. A testament to the marketing and reach you could receive from Sonicbidder.com.

Momentum continued when Auto Exotix went live. The sale featured rare cars from Europe. The international attention grew as bidders from the United Kingdom, Germany, and the Czech Republic joined the live auction. Ferraris, Porsches, and Formula 1 race cars abounded, but Ferraris dominated the day with $3,355,000 million in bids out of $5,672,750 in the sale. Other noteworthy cars were a 1958 AC Aceca Fast Back Coupe that hammered for $126,500 and a 1961 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud hammering for $84,700. Some of these cars, such as the legendary Michael Schumacher Ferrari Team Motorhome, weren’t even in America when they were being bid for. They were in Germany. Auto Exotix proved Sonicbidder.com can sell anything anywhere at any time.

Sonicbidder.com’s three week auction run closed with Hershey at Home 2021. Though Auto Exotix had a more opulent taste, Hershey at Home had to perform due to it being the follow up to its successful originator in 2020. Sonicbidder.com once again surpassed expectations. A 1914 Jeffery Touring hammered for $39,600, a 1931 Auburn 8-98A Rumble Seat Convertible hammered for $105,600, and a 1913 Stutz Bearcat Speedster hammered for $121,000. Remarkably, one of the very first cars EVER, a 1903 Cadillac Model A, sold for $99,000. Historic value was as high as the turnout with countries like Mexico, Saudi Arabia, and Australia represented worldwide. Hershey at Home 2021 secured a record for Sonicbidder.com. Well over $40,000,000 in bids have been placed on the website this year. That’s serious buying power on Sonicbidder.com.

As the holiday season approaches, Sonicbidder.com isn’t slowing down. Up next is their “Christmas Around the World” Auction on December 8th. They are accepting consignments and would love to help you achieve amazing returns on your investments. To find out how you can sell on a world stage, visit their website or contact them by calling (877) 824-3337.
