ONTARIO, CA, Apr 15, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - UREEQA, a leading digital validation company helping creators to protect, manage and monetize creative work, has today announced the launch of its new Validation-as-a-Service (VaaS) solution, designed to tackle NFT fraud and protect NFT creators.
Certainly, any solution will involve validating a creator's identity. However, Ureeqa was conceived of the notion that it was as important to validate the authorship and ownership of every creation as well, a factor lacking in current NFT marketplaces, most of which focus on the ease with which creative pieces can be initialized and sold.
UREEQA's unique platform fixes this by employing its VaaS solution to generate a Package-of-Proof(TM) and a Responsibly Minted(TM) NFT, which come together to serve as evidence that the creator and the creation have been authenticated and are legitimate.
"The initial exchange models were adopted by NFT marketplaces on the fly, hurried and so demand-focused that it enabled bad actors to take advantage of the situation," UREEQA CEO Kirk Fergusson said. "Efforts need to be made to curb the abilities to perpetrate fraud as easily in the first place. Then, we have the answer with a patented process and blockchain-based solution that can be integrated into most NFT platforms."
UREEQA's revolutionary system -- which has been tried and tested by renowned artists on the company's own marketplace -- is a creator-centric hybrid approach to validation and IP protection. The platform's patented validation process enables verification via a centralized model, while generating a Package-of-Proof on the blockchain for anyone to see in decentralized fashion.
Any ETH-based NFT sales platform can integrate the core components of the UREEQA platform into their marketplace, just like that. And so too can any auction house or creator association.
Participating marketplaces can visibly delineate creations that have gone through this thorough assessment process -- highlighting the extra steps that creators have taken to instill confidence amongst prospective purchasers.
"Building scalable world-class NFT marketplaces to address early adopter demand has taken considerable effort over the past year," Fergusson added. "At UREEQA, we've spent the last 18 months building a validation solution designed to support creators first and foremost -- and this patented technology is now available to NFT marketplaces to eradicate fraud and instill trust in the creations they're offering through their platforms. By leveraging our VaaS solution, NFT marketplaces can quickly work to stamp out fraud while preparing their marketplaces for broader mass market adoption."
Established in Canada in 2020, UREEQA is modernizing the inefficient and bureaucratic systems currently in place for copyright protection. By building a robust and compelling Package-of-Proof(TM) for source creative work, UREEQA only mints Validated NFTs to represent creative rights. This helps keep buyers safe by giving them confidence that the work they are purchasing was minted by the smart contract approved by the creator of the work and is therefore authentic.
The UREEQA platform strives to protect creators' work, their rights and their revenue by harnessing the power of blockchain technology. UREEQA provides value and opportunities for its creators, validators and token holders via URQA, the token at the heart of the UREEQA ecosystem.

MADRID, SPAIN, Apr 7, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Elk Finance which is a decentralized network for cross-chain liquidity has announced the launch of its ElkNet v2 upgrade. ElkNet v2 is the first fully functional version of the ElkNet protocol, with security and efficiency as its highlighting upgrades.
For more details, please visit Introducing: ElkNet v2 (Overview, Token Migration & Governance) | by Elk.Finance | Elk Finance | Mar, 2022 | Medium https://bit.ly/3ujn9D9
The upcoming ElkNet v2 upgrade will be secured by design with various security checks and transfer limits in place. It will work on a cross-chain triangle model where security, speed, and cost will be balanced within the network to enhance user experience.
Cross-chain messaging is one of the highlighting features of ElkNet v2 which will allow outside developers to deploy cross-chain smart contracts and web3 applications.
ElkNet v2 is a ground-breaking cross-chain architecture based on a system of token "reservoirs" that are installed on each chain supported by ElkNet.
ElkNet Reservoirs will improve transparency, minimize custodial risk, and reduce smart contract vulnerabilities all at the same time.
Another interesting part of the ElkNet v2 upgrade is the deployment of a new ELK token contract which is a pre-requisite to installing the ElkNet Reservoirs. In order to take advantage of the new features and network operations, users must upgrade to ElkNet v2 from the Elk dApp.
As part of the ElkNet v2 upgrade, the first official governance vote will also be initiated. A significantly revised ELK tokenomics framework will be presented to users for approval.
The first vote will be placed during the token upgrade and the token update will be followed by a poll about each of the new token contracts, with the results being published on the blockchain.
Detailed information about the ElkNet v2 upgrade is available in the above-mentioned medium article.
Elk Finance is going to launch its ElkNet v2 upgrade on April 9th, 2022, with upgrades including an ELK token upgrade, first governance vote, ElkNet Reservoir System, and many other updates.

MONTREAL, QUEBEC, Apr 7, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - St-Georges Eco-Mining Corp. (CSE:SX)(OTCQB:SXOOF)(FSE:85G1) is pleased to release the additional partial results of its 2021 drilling campaign on its 100% own Manicouagan Project.
Table 1 - Assay results for a 2-meter section of 2021-Hole 18
Table 2 - Representative samples collected from the 1,070kg bulk sample
Map 1 - Location of hole 21-18 in relation to 2021 bulk sampling and two historical holes nearby
Table 3 - Results for the eight samples submitted for secondary assay
The drill cores sampled return results up to 0.84 g/t of rhodium, 1.3 g/t ruthenium, 0.16 g/t osmium and 0.3 g/t iridium over 0.5 meters.
Eight separate samples were selected for re-assay for all Platinum Group Elements (PGE) from hole 21-18. The additional average results over the 2-meter zone previously released on March 25, 2022 (from 47.5 meters to 49.5 meters) include 0.55 g/t rhodium, 1.087 g/t ruthenium, 0.214 g/t iridium and 0.11 g/t osmium. The Company believes these are significant credits to the reported 2-meter section intersected in hole 2021-18. These results coincide with the random samples collected from the bulk sampling and attests to the vertical extent of nickel-copper-cobalt and PGE's present in this system. Therefore, the Company intends to accelerate its metallurgical sampling program to determine the viability of economically separating and recovering the various suites of minerals identified in the Manicouagan massive sulfide discovery.
The samples were shipped from Val D'or ALS Laboratories to Bureau Veritas for a complete suite of assays. The eight samples were selected from the better values reported previously from ALS and reported in the Company's last press release on March 24, 2022 (Discovery of High-Grade Nickel & Palladium Corridor Confirmed). Therefore, the samples are not sequential throughout the previous reference to 6.5 meters but are sequential through the 2-meter section previously announced. The Best 2-meter results for platinum and palladium are reported in a side-by-side comparison in Table 1, along with additional results for iridium, osmium, rhodium and ruthenium.
Comparatively, assay results for platinum and palladium were similar in nature. Several of the higher-grade samples for platinum and palladium showed decreases from the previous 2-meter results reported in the last press release. This reduced the platinum values by 8% and the palladium values by 18%, as shown in Table 1 above. These variations may be attributable to either or both of the different processes used to establish the assay values and/or the inconsistencies of mineral content in the sample. In fact, the highest iron content (massive sulfides +25% to >50%) is present within this 2-meter zone and may have contributed to any processing issues present.
Table 2 is a reminder of the representative samples collected from the 1,070 kg bulk sample. These values confirm the association and relative consistencies of PGE minerals at surface and at depth.
The Company has a large quantity of samples in the process of being assayed by its independent labs. St-Georges' contracted geologists are still hard at work processing the last batch of core that came out of the Manicouagan Project's camp earlier this month. Assays results will be disclosed as they become available.
Because of the high-grade assays returned and the identification of a mineralized trend or corridor, the Company expanded its claim position in the area to maintain its competitive advantage. This year, the Company expects to conduct a cursory exploration program on the new land acquisition with some geophysics, geologic mapping, and geochemical sampling of surface outcrops.
"We believe we are refining our knowledge of structure and mineralization at our Manicouagan project. Previously overlooked and, in some cases, unknown mineralization and trace element geochemistry provide additional targets that both extend the known areas and provide additional targets that remain untested. This particularly involves the distribution of PGEs. Hole 21-18 provided a 2-meter-thick zone that, when you add all of the metals together, gives us 7% nickel equivalent. Historic holes intersected narrow zones (0.22m) that had a combined value of over 12.5% nickel equivalent at today's quoted prices.
"Palladium, rhodium, ruthenium, and platinum are significantly enriched in areas where higher-grade nickel-cobalt-copper sulfides exist. Historically, these minerals were overlooked or, at best, cursorily sampled for all PGEs. Even so, the results from historic drilling include values to 1.73 g/t rhodium and 2.7 g/t ruthenium. More importantly, for our future exploration programs, we find that the various PGEs do not go hand-in-hand but can exist separately and more widely spread from the highest concentrations of base metals. This means higher grades of rhodium and other PGEs may exist within the 16 historic holes that encountered 0.7-to-7-meter widths of high-grade nickel-copper-cobalt within the Bob and Bob East zones. This is also true for elsewhere on this large property position.
"We hope to benefit from this knowledge, especially in the case of the platinum-palladium-rhodium (PGE) mineralization which appears to have been under-explored in this region. St-Georges hopes to take this knowledge to the next level by also utilizing the new pathfinder elements developed during the 2021 drill program," commented Herb Duerr, CEO & President of St Georges Eco-Mining.
About Rhodium Metal
Rhodium is one of the rarest and most valuable precious metals in the world, currently valued at US$19,000 per ounce or $610 per gram. It is only found in platinum or nickel ores that tend to run with the other members of the platinum group metals. Currently, South Africa produces roughly 80% of the global supply, while Russia and North America account for the bulk of the remaining 20%.
The global market for rhodium is around 1.2 million ounces and with supply running a multi-year deficit, the value of the metal has grown steadily since 2017. The reason for this being that rhodium is only produced as a co- or by-product with average grades of up to .5 g/t. In fact, many producers of rhodium today are operating at much lower grades, making St-Georges' discovery very significant in terms of grades being reported.
