Afri-X and DigiShares Bring Tokenization to Africa

DigiShares - Building Bridges Between Traditional Finance and Blockchain Technology

DigiShares – White Label Tokenization Platform for Real Assets

DigiShares has licensed its tokenization platform to Afri-X under a white-label business arrangement.

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK, May 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — DigiShares is proud to announce its partnership with Afri-x.com to deliver the power of tokenization to Africa. DigiShares has licensed its tokenization platform to Afri-X under a white-label business arrangement.

Commenting on the launch of the Afri-x.com platform, Tsolo Makara, CEO said, “It’s a proud moment for us as Afri-x.com as this signals the moment when everyday people can have a legitimate seat at the table of opportunity in Africa. Prime opportunities have traditionally been out of reach for the majority but that changes today through the power of tokenization. We are excited about the road ahead."

The platform is going live with raise opportunities in property, logistics, beverages as well as biomass production. These raises represent an initial $ 80 million ( ZAR 1.1 billion) requirement with a further pipeline of $ 200 million (ZAR 2.8 billion) due to be announced in 90 days. The excitement about this moment lies in the fact that participation in these opportunities starts from as little as $ 4 (ZAR 60) per token. For project and company owners, this represents an excellent additional source of funding while significantly reducing barriers to entry for investors.

The size of the investment opportunity in Africa has never been in doubt. What has traditionally driven reluctance has been the real and perceived risks in investing in Africa. Blockchain technology together with smart contract innovation go a long way to mitigate that risk for local and international investors all for a fraction of the cost.

Claus Skaaning, CEO of DigiShares states, “This is exactly why blockchain was invented and why it adds a lot of value. Together with Afri-X we are able to fractionalize investments into attractive opportunities and assets that are not normally available to small investors. This enables us to democratize the access to investments and to create equal opportunity for small investors to diversify and protect their funds. We look forward to launch the projects with Afri-X”.

About Afri-X
Afri-X sits at the intersection between transformational businesses and other entities needing growth capital and Investors who can participate by buying from as little as 1 token.
By positioning Afri-X as the premier tokenization platform in Sub-Saharan Africa, the opportunity exists to deliver significant value to all stakeholders while leaving a lasting positive impact in the territories that the platform operates in.

With Picachos 1ST diamond drill program concluded, BGADF has a robust dataset to plan the next phase of exploration. it is truly an exciting time to take a closer look at this aspect of the Property”

— Rob Birmingham, President & CEO

THORNHILL, ONTARIO, CANADA, May 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — This Company may prove to be a Large Gainer very soon and for Good Reason……… Precious Metals will always be a focal point of a Portfolio and Investing in Gold and Silver is a necessity.

Gold and Silver Exploration Co. Brigadier Gold (Stock Symbol: BGADF) is now a Reporting Company with OTC Markets

BGADF sees Steady Progress at their Gold & Silver Mining Property in Mexico

Experienced New CEO Appointed and Company Finances Strengthened

Proven Precious Metals and Minerals Properties Under Development.
– Program Fully Funded with $4.2 Million Raised to Date.
– Phase 2 of Current Sample Drilling Project Nearing Completion.
– Closing of $1,000,000 Non-Brokered Private Placement.
– Debt Settlement Completed, Retiring $100,000 of Indebtedness

Brigadier (Stock Symbol: BGADF) is pleased to provide a summary of the recently completed phase-one exploration program at it Picachos gold-silver-copper project Sinaloa, Mexico (the "Picachos Project", "Picachos" or the "Property"). In total 5057 metres of diamond drill was completed in 50-holes across eleven different prospects on the Property, most of which were never previously drill tested. Remaining assays are anticipated to be received in June.
Phase-one Drilling Highlights:
– San Agustín past-producing gold mine with a principal result of 7.45 g/t gold and 51 g/t silver across 7 metres in DH-BRG-001. Significant widths and
grades were intercepted in several holes from San Agustín.
– San Antoñio historic gold-copper mine with 12.62 g/t gold and 78 g/t silver with 4.5% copper across 0.8 metres in DH-BRG-026.
– La Gloria historic gold mine with values of 10.65 g/t gold across 1 metre in a larger interval of 2.29 g/t gold across 8 metres in DH-BRG-028

Rob Birmingham, President & CEO, comments, "With Picachos' first ever diamond drill program concluded, Brigadier now has a robust dataset from which to plan the next phase of exploration. Over the course of the last eight months, exploration efforts have produced several high priority targets which the Company intends to follow up on, including a copper and base metals porphyry on the North end of the Picachos Project. With copper reaching all time high's, it is truly an exciting time to take a closer look at this aspect of the Property."

Assays are still pending for 518 metres of drilling completed in phase-one, most of which is from a 3-hole fence drilled across El Placer Norte where underground sampling returned grades of up to 12.79 g/t across the Huarache Vein. Perhaps more significantly, a surface trench across the El Placer trend returned values of 0.5 g/t gold across 65 metres in BRG-117154. This was followed by 8 metres of 2.14 g/t gold in adjacent trench BRG-117146.
Further indications of a possible bulk tonnage gold target were returned from trench BRG-26892 with values of 1.07 g/t gold across 6 metres from a newly discovered mineralized outcrop of porphyritic rhyolite on the Santa Elena ridge, about 850 metres southwest of Garabato and 750 metres north of El Placer Norte.

A copper porphyry target with associated base metals was confirmed in the northwestern part of the Property where approximately 350 metres of semi-continuous hand trenching on Line 2569200 uncovered sericitic alteration with values mainly greater than 240 ppm molybdenum (Mo) with up to 0.22% Mo across 6 metres. These results confirm the bedrock source for overlying Mo-in-soil results of up to 456 ppm Mo. This anomaly is about 400 hectares in size and is roughly defined by soil samples at 50 metre spacing on survey lines spaced 400 metres apart. Sericite with molybdenite is interpreted to represent part of a hydrolytic alteration shell around a buried porphyry system.

Brigadier has 17.7 line kilometres of first-order geochemical anomalies for gold, copper and molybdenum outside the drilled areas that merit systematic mapping and trenching. A portion of these have been selected for near-term work this summer. Access routes for heavy equipment have been surveyed both to Garabato and to the porphyry area. The Company is considering an airborne geophysical survey to better understand both faulting and intrusions related to mineralization.

Why Invest in Reliant Life Share’s Life Settlements Rather than Rising Cryptocurrencies?

SHERMAN OAKS, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, May 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — COVID-19 has largely affected nations and their economies worldwide. And if there’s one thing it made many people realize, it is that finding additional or alternative sources of income like investments is very important. The question is, which type of investment is best for you?

Key Takeaways
● Life settlements have no correlations with other markets, making it an attractive investment vehicle that provides diversification to one’s portfolio with low risk.

● With the regulation from authorities, investments for life settlements are safeguarded and returns are guaranteed as they are paid by highly rated insurance companies.

Since 2009, there has been a continuous rise of cryptocurrencies or nontraditional types of investment. However, posing too many inherent risks, they may not be the best choice for anyone who would like to start building or diversifying their portfolio, especially with the pandemic we are currently in.

In order to identify which investment is suits you best, it helps to first understand what life settlements and cryptocurrencies are.

What are life settlements and how do they work?

A Life settlement is when an existing life insurance policyholder sells his rights to a third party for a lump sum payment. The money that he or she receives from the sale is more than the surrender value but less than the actual death benefit. After the agreement, the third party who purchased the policy will become the new owner and will take the responsibility of paying its premiums.

Since this type of investment means spending millions to pay for policy premiums, it was originally a vessel that only institutional and corporate investors take advantage of. But over time, it slowly became available to qualified individuals in the form of fractionalized life settlements.

With fractionalized life settlements, two or more investors can put their money into a single policy and be able to reap the benefit by receiving returns that are proportionate to the respective amounts of their investment.

Where do cryptocurrencies come from and how are they used?

Cryptocurrencies, on the other hand, are digital currencies. From the name itself, they are created through cryptography and are enabled by blockchain technology. This technology that they operate on also makes the movement of the currencies decentralized. Meaning, they do not come from the central bank or the government, thus, they don’t have control over the system. And because of this, the authorities cannot regulate transactions using these assets.

What are the differences between life settlements and cryptocurrencies in terms of investment?

Security vs. Volatility

Putting your money into a life settlement gives you better security because you would know exactly how much you’ll get when it matures. Once the insured dies, the death benefit will be filed with the insurance company and the investors who own part of the beneficial interest in the policy will receive their proportional, pre-determined share of the proceeds.

On the other hand, the market for cryptocurrencies is unpredictable and influenced by several factors like manipulation, decentralization, and more. Hence, a cryptocurrency investor has to ask himself this question: “How can I sleep soundly when the price volatility of cryptocurrencies is high that to get a good return, I have to constantly keep an eye on the market?”

Correlation with other markets

Furthermore, alternative investment vehicles like life settlements are independent of other markets like stocks, bonds, interest rates, and even price commodities. While giving the seller a maximum value for the policy, investors, on the other side of the transaction, are guaranteed to receive a predetermined amount based on their investment. Adding life settlements to one’s portofilio will be a good strategy to decrease volatility.

Trends in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, in contrast, are increasingly growing correlations with traditional asset classes. According to EFG International’s insight on the pros and cons of cryptocurrency, in the five years to end 2021, of the 17 months the S&P 500 declined, bitcoin also went down in 10 of them. It also said that of S&P 500’s worst five months, the said cryptocurrency also went down in four of them.

Regulation vs. Hacking and Loss of Investments

Being digital also has its own disadvantages. Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin pose a great risk of you being a victim of hacking that can result in losing your investment. Since transactions using these digital assets mostly happen in a website or an app, they are vulnerable to hackers.

Worse than that, exchange errors and hacking of digital wallets are not covered by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) because these transactions don’t go through banks or brokerages. So once you lost your assets because they have been stolen or due to errors in transactions, it will be hard to trace and even retrieve them.

These threats are the results of the absence of regulation. But more than these things, without regulation, there is a higher chance for the manipulation of prices. Without interference and control from the government, the price volatility of cryptocurrencies may be manipulated by powerful individuals including media owners, big-time investors, and more.

On the contrary, life settlement investments are highly regulated with the help of brokers or escrow agents. As for Reliant Life Shares, UMB acts as escrow and accepts the investor’s funds until he has chosen which policy to put his money into. Aside from brokers or escrow agents, other parties like Life Insurance and Life Expectancy companies also take part in the process to make sure all details and information provided are correct.

Limitations on Use and Benefit

In addition, some cryptocurrencies come with certain limitations on how they can be used. Since they are not issued by the government, some cryptocurrencies cannot be converted to real currencies and can only be used for transactions on the internet. Also, not all online businesses accept cryptocurrencies as payment for goods and services.

Life settlements, in contrast, offer great returns in the form of cash which will be released by highly-rated insurance companies to the investors once the death claim is filed and finalized.

About Reliant Life Shares
Reliant Life Shares is a company that helps qualified California investors diversify their portfolio by investing in fractionalized life settlements. Life settlements are existing insurance policies that are owned by the company’s customers as investments. With an expected double digit annual rate of return in a significant number of cases, Reliant Life Shares offers policies from highly-rated, U.S.-based, Legal Reserve life insurance companies including AXA, John Hancock, Pacific Life, and more.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an enormous impact on mental health. Healthy people all over the world have developed symptoms that can impact work productivity

Coaching is a place for people to examine their thinking, gain clarity and focus on the areas of their lives where they need to improve to maintain mental health.”

— Joyce Odidison

WINNIPEG, MB, CANADA, May 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The COVID-19 pandemic has had an enormous impact on mental health. Healthy people all over the world have developed symptoms of depression and anxiety, and the effect on those already diagnosed with mental illness has been devastating.

“Poor mental health has become a parallel pandemic.”
– Dr Hans Henri P. Kluge, WHO Regional Director for Europe

In the workplace, we have been forced to adopt new ways of collaboration and collegiality has slowly been eroded by months of fear, isolation, and loneliness. Organizations across the globe will be faced with an unprecedented challenge as we attempt to rebuild our workforce in the wake of this pandemic. Ensuring that wellness support is available for employees to face this transition is now a must-have measure.

More than ever before, there is a desperate need for skilled professionals who can support and empower those suffering from poor mental health.
An essential aspect in the process of effectively managing mental disease is building mental resilience and creating new habits and routines that aid in minimizing stress, overwhelm, and anxiety.

At Coach Velocity, we believe that a professionally trained certified coach can play an instrumental role in this process. While coaching is certainly not suitable for someone during a mental health crisis, it is ideal for creating new lifestyle routines and accountability partnerships.

The coaching relationship is also a place for the client to examine their thinking, gain clarity and focus on the areas of their lives where they need to improve. These wellness coaching conversations are extremely important for maintaining mental health.

“The time has come to once and for all stop treating mental health as an incurable infectious disease”
– Joyce Odidison, founder and CEO, Interpersonal Wellness Services Inc.
For this reason, we have created the world’s most comprehensive certification program for ‘Wellness Mindset Competency Coaching certification’ that features a wellness mindset and strategies to improve overall well-being. A key course in our line-up is ‘Coaching and Mental Health’. The course is designed to give coaches and leaders the tools they need to support their clients and employees in maintaining their mental health.
Students of the ‘Coaching and Mental Health’ course:
– Learn how to accurately assess for mental health episodes
– Develop confidence in referring clients to psychologists and other mental health practitioners
– Fully understand their role in supporting clients and employees to restructure their lives in response to a mental health diagnosis
– Have a clear picture of the client in the process; knowing when to stay in coaching and when not to coach.

As we move into a new era, there needs to be less fear and discomfort around the subject of mental disease. In opening minds to new ideas and fostering inclusiveness and understanding, coaching can be the vessel for this change. With the right training, coaches can empower people to feel less like patients and more like productive individuals who need support to restructure their lives and safely manage a diagnosis.

With more than two decades of experience, Interpersonal Wellness Services Inc. through its coaching branch, Coach Velocity School of Coaching provides the most comprehensive range of coaching certifications outside of a university. Our unique, holistic approach, based on the Wellness Improvement System® (WIS), is fast becoming the go-to method for fast transformational coaching. Our training allows professionals and leaders to promote mental and emotional wellness and psychological safety at work and in life.

Waddington's Major Inuit Art Auction – May 8 to 13, 2021

Stone sculpture by John Tiktak, MOTHER AND CHILD, ca.1980

JOHN TIKTAK, R.C.A. (1916-1981), Rankin Inlet / Kangiqliniq, MOTHER AND CHILD, stone, signed in syllabics, ca.1980

Johnny Inukpuk stone sculpture of a girl

JOHNNY INUKPUK, R.C.A. (1911-2007), Port Harrison / Inukjuak ‘GIRL UNCOVERS A HIBERNATING BEAR’, stone, signed in syllabics, disc number inscribed, ca. 1970

Jessie Oonark print called 'Inside the Igloo to Talk'

JESSIE OONARK, O.C., R.C.A. (1906-1985), Baker Lake / Qamani’tuaq, ‘INSIDE THE IGLOO TO TALK’, stonecut and stencil, 1981, 21/40

Canada's Leading Authority on Inuit Art at Auction: Establishing Records Since 1978

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, May 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Our major Spring 2021 auction of Inuit Art features classic sculpture from the 1950s, experimental prints from the early 1960s from the Cape Dorset print shop (Kinngait), and compelling contemporary works.

Highlights include a unique double-sided Judas Ullulaq sculpture, works on cloth by Marion Tuu’luq and Irene Avaalaaqiaq, and a collection of graphics by Jessie Oonark. Also of note are two mother and child sculptures; one by John Tiktak and another by an unattributed Sanikiluaq artist. Other notable artists include Kenojuak Ashevak, Joe Talirunili, Johnny Inukpuk, and Karoo Ashevak.

JOHN TIKTAK, R.C.A. (1916-1981), Rankin Inlet / Kangiqliniq
MOTHER AND CHILD
stone, signed in syllabics, ca.1980
11.75 x 9 x 4 in — 29.8 x 22.9 x 10.2 cm
Estimate $25,000-$35,000

Mothers with their children was a subject of fascination to Tiktak. While in some versions, the subjects can seem strained or overburdened, this iteration is wonderfully serene. The child tilts his face up as if to catch the light, or to observe a passing bird. Tiktak’s style is well-noted for its minimalism, rooted as it was in the hardness of the available stone, which limited the artist’s ability to capture detail. Yet there is something facile in this characterization, as if it was the stone itself that produced genius, rather than the artist who harnessed it.

UNIDENTIFIED, Belcher Islands / Sanikiluaq
MOTHER AND CHILD WITH FISH AND ULU, ca.1954
stone, ivory, soap inlay,
6.5 x 5 x 2.25 in — 16.5 x 12.7 x 5.7 cm
Estimate $5,000-$6,000

This stunning early work by an unidentified Sanikiluaq artist is characteristic of the integral role of the mother in Inuit families and community. Frequently reflected in Inuit art, mothers are often depicted with their children in their arms or hoods (amauti) during the course of their everyday activities. While traditional in nature, the multi-tasking mother or maternal head of the family, continues to be a central figure.

KENOJUAK ASHEVAK, C.C., R.C.A. (1927-2013), Cape Dorset / Kinngait
VISION OF AUTUMN, 1960
stonecut, 43/50
19 x 24 in — 48.3 x 61 cm
Estimate $8,000-$12,000

While best known for her most celebrated print, 'The Enchanted Owl', Kenojuak’s other works featured in the 1960 Cape Dorset print collection, like 'Vision of Autumn', were also standout indicators of her talent. The silhouetted image, mingling human and animal shapes is printed on coloured rolled ink backgrounds, based on a graphite pencil drawing.

PHOENIX, AZ, UNITED STATES, May 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Showcasing its commitment to support African American Women in Entrepreneurship and economic empowerment, COUNTRY Financial is supporting the upcoming Millionaire Mastermind Academy Economic Empowerment Chat with Tamala Austin and Dr. Velma Trayham on entrepreneurial expansion.

The May 17 event will feature Austin, the founder of J.I.V.E.

Austin will share how she grew her home-based business into a retail success. Registration for the free online event, which takes place at 2 p.m. Eastern time, is now open.

“We are extremely pleased to sponsor the Millionaire Mastermind Academy programming to help enrich the lives of people in our community,” said Michael Fisher, COUNTRY Financial Agency Vice Community Business Development. COUNTRY Financial has been helping families protect their lives and livelihoods since 1925, having a long history of protecting people, working together to help individual’s and families achieve financial freedom.

Corporate partnerships serve to provide mentorship and entrepreneurial training for women of color and minority women business owners, with the aim of helping them achieve sustainable long-term success and freedom from poverty. The Millionaire Mastermind Academy educates and supports the growth of women-owned businesses while supporting local economies. It has supported more than 5,000 women entrepreneurs in creating and launching successful small businesses.

According to a recent report from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, women-owned businesses were disproportionately affected during the pandemic and fewer expect recovery in the year to come. They reported significantly less optimistic plans for future investments, revenue projects and staffing then their male-owned counterparts.

To combat this trend, Trayham created the Millionaire Mastermind Academy’s entrepreneurship accelerator program to help grow women-owned businesses and support underserved communities. Through Corporate partnerships the program offers scholarships to help more women out of poverty through empowered entrepreneurship.

ENDOWNMENTS AS RAINY DAY FUND SHOULD REIMBURSE STUDENTS FOR BROKEN COVID PROMISES: WEINER, LASKY, LEE IN ROANOKE TIMES

Robert Weiner

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, May 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — "THE ENDOWMENTS' BILLIONS WILL BARELY BE TOUCHED," AUTHORS SAY

Former White House spokesman Robert Weiner, senior policy analyst Ben Lasky and policy analyst Rebecca Lee argue in The Roanoke Times (and featured in OpEdNews) that it’s time for colleges to use their endowments as they were intended: as a “rainy day fund.” For the past year, students have not had access to the same college experience as before Covid-19. So why have they been charged pre-Covid prices?

Weiner, Lasky and Lee begin, “While life is beginning to return to normal due to COVID vaccinations, most college students still aren’t being offered what they usually would in a non-Coronavirus world.”

They argue, “One of the most serious problems facing young people today is student debt – with a whopping $1.56 trillion owed. Yet colleges and universities across the nation, including in the outstanding Roanoke area schools, charge full tuition (or close to it) for a fraction of the value due to the impact of COVID-19’s necessary cutbacks.”

They continue, “For example, Virginia Tech has a $1.43 billion endowment, yet for half the academic year students paid 100% tuition for about 10% of what is usually offered.”

They write, “Not only classes, but much of the residential life, such as sports, in-person clubs, debating, dorm life, and all other group extra-curricular activities — in other words, the friendships that last a lifetime, and are the prime reasons you go to college in the first place, were not being offered.”

They go on, “And even as colleges ease restrictions, things are not all the way back yet. Current students should not accrue debt when they’re only getting a portion of the college benefits.”

They explain, “On Roanoke College’s website, there is a page that boasts 12 ‘surprising things about life at Roanoke College.’”

They contend, “The problem is that most of the items listed weren’t possible for most of this year. ‘You can do your laundry without your mom’ is one of the reasons listed. But you don’t have to when Mom is still your roommate because dorms were closed.”

They assert, “Attending sporting events is also listed. “At Roanoke, students are proud to be Maroons, and they aren’t afraid to show it!” It’s kind of hard to “show it” when very few fans are allowed.”

They point out, “If colleges are still in need of money—endowments—not charging full tuition and housing to underserved students—should help make up the difference.”

They write, “The six colleges and universities (nationally) that received the most in endowments in 2020 are as follows:

1. Harvard: $41 billion

2. Yale: $30.3 billion

3. Stanford: $27.7 billion

4. Princeton: $25.6 billion

5. Massachusetts Institute of Technology: $17.4 billion

6. University of Pennsylvania: $14.6 billion

Local Endowments are less but still high:

1. University of Virginia: $9.9 billion

2. Virginia Commonwealth University: $ 1.99 billion

3. Washington & Lee University: $1.7 billion

4. Virginia Tech: $1.34 billion

5. William & Mary: $976.7 million

6. Virginia Military Institute: $539.6 million

7. Hampton University: $280.6 million

8. Old Dominion University: $265.8 million

9. Hollins University: $182.7 million

10. Roanoke College: $142.3 million

11. Radford University: $60.2 million

12. Ferrum College: $52.3 million”

They continue, “This is a temporary solution. Once COVID-19 subsides, colleges can begin to charge full tuition again for all amenities and educational benefits. Colleges and universities’ endowments routinely can, and will, replenish themselves quickly and effectively, by continuing to raise money from wealthy alumni, as they usually do, through their normal marketing—maybe even better if they adopt this policy as the emergency it is.”

They explain, “Endowment money can be spent as the managers see fit. This money can—and should—be used to keep these institutions afloat while offering a discount to students. However, after staying home during spring and summer, students were dealt a blow when fall 2020 hit: many colleges and universities stayed virtual while charging the full amount of tuition. Some institutions did offer a ridiculously small 5-10% discount.”

They argue, “Tuition often includes the use of certain facilities, such as gyms and libraries. But if students are not using these accommodations during the COVID-19 pandemic (Virginia Tech students can currently reserve only four hours a day in the library even during finals), why should they be forced to pay for them?”

They go on, “Every year, Harvard has about 6,700 undergraduate students. Harvard ranks #1 for its endowment. According to an article by ThinkAdvisor, Harvard accumulated $41 billion in endowment money in 2020 alone. Despite this, students were still charged the full tuition of $49,653 at the beginning of their 2020-2021 semester, which was all virtual.”

They contend, “Students already carry large amounts of stress, often wondering how they are going to pay their full tuition back after graduation. Now, they are learning that they are not garnering the benefits while still being charged full price.”

Weiner, Lasky and Lee conclude, “Endowments must be used to help colleges and universities balance dangerous, stressful, and trying times. For students, these are indeed the ‘rainy days.’ Even as the pandemic ends, colleges still owe students the money for what they did not receive. The endowments' billions will barely be touched. Give a break to the students who will soon lead us into the economic future.”
