The Blockchain Revolution Is About To Begin Predicts Jed McCaleb

The blockchain technology has allowed for cryptocurrencies to take the financial market by storm with more revolution being expected in the industry. According to Jed McCaleb who created Mt. Gox bitcoin exchange, the blockchain technology will in the near future lead to universal payments network. The co-founder and chief technology officer at Stellar said they are concentrating on generating a cryptocurrency network for cross-border payments. As a developer, he believes that the technology used in cryptocurrencies will change stock markets, global payments, and fundraisers. There will be public ledger accessible to all people, and that cannot be changed at random, giving people a chance to use dollars, euros and other things as they are used to.

Research has shown that initial coin offerings (ICOs) also known as token sales have raised a combined $9 billion in four years, revealing an untapped market in the financial system. It is worth noting that unlike capital ventures, token sales go to the retail investor directly who contribute to a project by buying digital coins. They appreciate in value with time giving the investor some future platform. They represent a new fundraising model that has been made trustworthy by the new MiFID II directive rules. They demand traders to specify new requirements for the minimum leverage value of 1:50 and bars bonus programs common to traders to curb fraudulent companies and fundraisers.

Jed McCaleb expects the blockchain technology will digitize non-crypto assets such as stocks. He believes all equity will be tokenized using the technology using a decentralize exchanges that will allow people to trade in a number of things. He quotes Securrency a Maryland based firm that is working towards allowing investors to buy stocks using bitcoin.

At Stellar, the lumens or XLM coins have entered into the top 10 of the most significant cryptocurrencies by market capitalization. Jed McCaleb believes technology can reduce inefficiency and improve living conditions. He has a special interest in artificial intelligence which he believes can be used to alleviate some of the human problems serving as an adviser to MIRI.

Betsy Devos – on topic article

Those who know Betsy DeVos well say she’s a force to be reckoned with. In the state of Michigan she’s known as a devoted go-getter, determined to bring about educational change. Even those who roundly against her political leanings describe her has pragmatic, kind and caring. Now that she’s serving in the capacity of Secretary of Education for the Trump Administration, people who don’t know her feel that she’s tone deaf and unprepared for the job.

 

DeVos lets all the criticism roll off her back. Moving from Michigan Republican Party chair to her current position requires a steep learning curb. DeVos says she’s ready. But some wonder if she has gotten in over her head.

 

DeVos was born in a conservative, wealthy family in Holland, Michigan in 1958. Her father, Edgar Prince, was a billionaire industrialist. But as rich as he was, her current husband’s family, the DeVoses, are even richer still. Dick DeVos is the heir to the Amway fortune. She, along with her husband have used their tremendous wealth to wield a great deal of political power.

 

Over the years, they have fought for charter schools and vouchers. In 2001, DeVos unsuccessfully attempted to have a bill passed to make tax payers foot the bill of charter schools. DeVos’s educational ideology shouldn’t be a surprised since it was adopted from the same ideals that come from her Dutch homeland. In the late 1800s, the liberals and the church fought over which educational system should reign in the country.

 

Trump tends to agree with this principle. Or at least, he pretends that he does. Many people argue that DeVos is blurring the lines between separation of church and state. But even those who agree with her views criticize her for the lack of oversight in charter schools.

 

Wayne State University Professor of Education Thomas Peroni says he is frightened over DeVos being at the helm of national education. He claims that her monitoring role in Michigan has caused great harm to the system. The bottom line is DeVos’s current job requires her to ensure that people from all backgrounds get the quality education they deserve.

 

But many point to some of DeVos’s “astonishingly ignorant” comments to show she’s completely out of touch. Her comment about HBCU’s being the pioneers of school choice did not bode well. A person who is considered head of U.S. education surely would know that HBCU’s were created because Blacks were denied admission into most white schools.

 

Despite it all, those who know DeVos are still rooting for her. DeVos’s classmate Noel Wollfins says he just hope she knows what she’s gotten herself into.

Hussain Sajwani Updates CNBC On DAMAC And Trump

CNBC covered the developments in Davos a couple months ago where the World Economic Forum was being held, and one man they ran into was Hussain Sajwani, the Executive Chairman of DAMAC Properties and its subsidiaries. They asked Sajwani if his ties to President Trump were going to cause any backlash against some of his vacation properties due to Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and he said that he believes despite the president’s hard line that his vacation properties have actually seen an increase of popularity. They also asked him if DAMAC had any new continents they had their sights set on. Sajwani said that they are currently exploring building major properties in the UK and possibly moving into North America, and he also said he’s considering selling up to 15% in ownership stakes in DAMAC.

 

Hussain Sajwani has been renowned as a property developer in the Arabian peninsula not only because of the quality and glamor of the buildings he’s had constructed, but also because he’s been known for some of the most sound financial management. In fact, DAMAC Properties has just about never been in debt, and his top management skills have even earned him recognition as one of the Middle East’s top CEOs in various business organizations. Some of the top properties he’s invested in include the Trump World Resort which he and the family of the current US President have partnered in, but he’s also investing in a project worth hundreds of millions known as AYKON City which is going be like a city within the main city of Dubai and will have high-rise hotels like none ever seen before. But Sajwani still points to his beginnings as being why he is where he is today.

 

Hussain Sajwani got his business degree at the University of Washington and actually started out in both the oil and the catering industry before going into real estate and hospitality. The catering business pulled in millions in revenue and he even was honored by the US Army for supplying food to troops stationed during Operation Desert Storm. It was in the 1990s that he started considering going into hotel and vacation property investments, and though he actually started the DAMAC holdings company back in the 1990s and bought the stakes in Anwar Tile that same year, he officially founded DAMAC Properties in 2002. In addition to the billions of dollars in property holdings he’s built since then, Sajwani is also a philanthropist who has helped the UAE’s Red Crescent program in helping refugees escaping from the Huda.

Securus Technologies works with Robert Johnson

The problem of cell phones in prisons is a chronic one. Access to cell phones by prisoners is a controlled privilege. Prisons officials outlawed access to cell phones by inmates without prior permission from the authorities of the facilities. The reason behind the strict rule is that some inmates are known to use cell phones in prison facilities to execute criminal acts outside the confines of the prison. Robert Johnson was a prison official charged with frisking prisoners to stop them from sneaking cell phones into correctional facilities. He was so good at what he did that the inmates never liked him. They used cell phones that had been smuggled in, somehow, to coordinate an attack that nearly killed him.

 

Securus Brings Robert Johnson into Its Fold

 

Robert Johnson has a first-hand experience regarding the dangers that lurk behind mobile phones reaching inmates in correctional centers and prisons in the US. His story has been on the lips of many people for seven years now. Securus Technologies is a company that has been granted the mandate to provide digital technology security to many government institutions and in correctional centers in the US. The company handles security and advice on the same for over 2, 500 government agencies. It has over 12, 000 000 inmates covered under its security systems. There are some prisons facilities that have not yet contracted the services of Securus Technologies to prevent illegal access to mobile phones in prison cells in though. Robert Johnson now works with Securus Technologies to prevent inmates from accessing cell phones in prison cells. Mr. Johnson was once a victim of his trade when inmates meted out revenge on him for preventing them to freely access mobile phones. He was shot six times in the head; he “died” several times but finally cheated death. He works with Securus as a consultant. He lives to tell the story of his ordeal but vows to take the game to a higher level by ensuring that prison facilities are cell phone free.

 

Wireless Containment Systems

 

Securus landed, firstly, a deal to provide paid calls to prisoners in the US correctional institutions. The company was soon requested to help the prisons authorities to stop inmates from accessing cells phones illegally. It has since invested in research and digital technologies to deliver the service. Securus has developed something called Wireless Containment Systems. The company says it is installing a system designed to detect wireless phone signals headed into the prisons cells. Securus calls the system a controlled access for preventing cell phone calls by inmates. The officials say that the system is a powerful cell phone network with the ability to tap all incoming and outgoing calls by inmates. The system provides the Securus technologies monitoring team with the option of either terminating the call or allowing it. The system is set in such a way that it only allows known phone numbers to go through.
