The danger of hacker attacks keeps growing within the DeFi space (case study: https://bit.ly/3jYokl7) causing drastic losses for users and protocols alike. The total sum lost to hacks in the first quarter Q1 2022 is up 695% from Q1 2021 losses. With both the quantity and severity of attacks on the rise, skepticism surrounding the DeFi space is also growing.

One of the leading players in DeFi insurance, Uno Re launched its Cover Portal which aims to grant users easy access to insurance coverage through its user-friendly UI.

What is Uno Re's Cover Portal?

Cover Portal is Uno Re's latest dApp - scanning users' wallet, detecting insurable assets within as well as staked in staking and farming pools across chains, measuring possible risks using an AI-based algorithm, and allowing users to secure their on-chain assets instantly.

Cover Portal is optimizing the insurance purchasing experience for users by simplifying all steps as much as possible. Upon connecting their wallets and detecting their insurable assets, users can simply choose the token(s) and how much to insure. Cover Portal allows users to pay their premiums in USDC.

"The launch of our Cover Portal marks the beginning of a new era in the DeFi insurance industry. We are steadily building and improving our platform to make hassle-free insurance service possible for DeFi users. Cover Portal is the final step towards fulfilling our true potential and makes our platform a complete ecosystem of multiple services and mechanisms, working like clockwork. We are delighted to have achieved this and look forward to improving the overall security of DeFi space." stated Jaskanwar Singh, CEO and Co-founder of Uno Re.

About Uno Re

Uno Re is the protocol behind Cover Portal. An insurance provider for DeFi users and partner of numerous DeFi platforms, Uno Re successfully provided compensation to Umbrella Network hack victims in March 2022. As the insurer, Uno Re has processed the claim in a few days and ensured that 91% of affected wallet addresses are covered and appropriately compensated.

Uno Re is the world's leading decentralised insurance and reinsurance platform, allowing the community to invest and trade in 'risk' and receive sizable returns on their investments in one of the safest asset classes in the world. The platform will break barriers to entry for the retail investor, doing away with the historic pre-requisite of absurdly high capital generally needed to invest in the market while also introducing much-needed transparency into the industry as a whole. Uno Re will also allow the community to propose innovative insurance products to the space, thus propelling a new generation of Insurtech companies powered by the Uno Re ecosystem.

Cornell Blockchain Club’s 2nd Annual Conference, ‘Web3 Going Mainstream,’ Set to Kick off

Ithaca, NY, Apr 18, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Cornell Blockchain Club's 2nd Annual Conference, "Web3 Going Mainstream," is set to kick off Friday, April 22nd at Roosevelt's Island in NYC. The one-day event serves to highlight how Web3 is simultaneously transcending institutional, academic, and corporate spheres.

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

In attendance will be the world's leading industry professionals, researchers, and firms, including John Wu (President of Ava Labs), Arwin Holmes (EY Global Blockchain CTO), Joe Conyers (Head of NFTs at Crypto.com), Algorand, FTX, Chainalysis, Gemini, Messari, DyDx, and many more.

This year's agenda is split into four parts: DeFi, NFTs, Regulation, and Institutions, which all have a large role to play in "Web3 Going Mainstream."

There is no university blockchain club better to host this event than Cornell's. In 2019, Cornell Blockchain Club hosted their first annual Blockchain conference which was deemed a success after 250+ attendees came to hear Emin Gun Sirer (Founder/CEO of Ava Labs), Sam Cassatt (CSO at Consensys), Kathleen Breitman (Co-Founder of Tezos) and many more speak. In fact, it was such a success that the members got to ring the Nasdaq bell.

Additionally, Cornell University has an extensive history with the development of Web3. Founded in 2017, Cornell Blockchain Club was the nation's first official university blockchain club. Since then, Cornell was named #1 University in the world for Crypto Education in 2019 by Coinbase, has created a semester-long undergraduate class with over 130 students, and has cultivated project teams who have done things like creating a Uniswap Arbitrage Bot and conducting research for the Web3 Foundation.

Cornell Blockchain Club hopes to you bridge the gap at "Web3 Going Mainstream." Follow along and stay updated here: cornellblockconference.com

RTO of LTKM Berhad via the Acquisition of EMS Business for RM336 Million

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

KLANG, Malaysia, Apr 8, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - LTKM Berhad (LTKM), a leading chicken egg producer, today announced a composite proposal, chiefly to divest the Company's existing business and venture into the business of providing of electronic manufacturing services (EMS) while at the same time, rectify its non-compliance with the public spread requirement of its shares under the listing requirements of Bursa Securities Malaysia Berhad.

Bhd. [L-R]

Executive Chairman of LTKM, Datuk Tan Kok said, "At its core, the proposals seek to reward our shareholders from the proceeds of the disposal of the Company's existing poultry business while at the same time, allow them to continue participating in the new EMS business following the proposals."

"The proposed disposal comes amid the challenging operating landscape for the poultry industry brought on by overcapacity, low average selling price of eggs, high raw material prices, difficulty in controlling disease outbreaks in the farms and acute labour shortage. In relation to these challenges, we have also incurred losses in the recent financial years ended 31 March 2020 to 2021 and for the nine-month period ended 31 December 2021. This has affected our ability to pay dividends too."

"Concurrent with the proposed disposals, we believe the proposed acquisition of the EMS business is an opportunity to create value for our shareholders through a business that is viable and profitable."

Briefly, the proposals comprise the following inter-conditional steps:

1. Proposed disposal of LTKM's existing business to Ladang Ternakan Kelang Sdn Bhd (LTKSB) for a total cash disposal consideration of RM158.83 million. LTKSB, which holds 71.6% of the equity interest in LTKM, is also the holding company of LTKM;

2. Proposed special dividend and capital repayment of RM1.1098 per LTKM share totalling RM158.83 million on an entitlement date to be determined;

3. Proposed consolidation of two existing LTKM shares into one LTKM share following the proposed special dividend and capital repayment;

4. Proposed acquisition by LTKM, of 100.0% equity interest in Local Assembly Sdn Bhd (Local Assembly) from Chai Voon Sun, Gurmakh Singh a/l Ajmer Singh, Wee Thian Song, Divine Inventions Sdn Bhd and Proven Venture Sdn Bhd (Vendors) for RM336.00 million to be satisfied through cash of RM100.00 million and the issuance of 393,333,333 new LTKM shares at an issue price of RM0.60 each;

5. Proposed restricted issue of 230.00 million new LTKM shares at an indicative issue price of RM0.60 each, representing 33.1% of the enlarged share capital of LTKM after the proposals to investors to be identified;

6. Proposed exemption to the vendors and persons acting in concert from the obligation to undertake a mandatory take-over offer to acquire the remaining LTKM shares not already owned by them upon completion of the proposed acquisition; and

7. Proposed change of name to "LA Technology Berhad" from "LTKM Berhad".

The proposed acquisition will result in a significant change in LTKM's business direction from a producer of chicken eggs to becoming an EMS provider. Local Assembly, an EMS provider, will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of LTKM while the vendors of Local Assembly will become LTKM's controlling shareholders with a 56.6% equity interest in the Company following the proposed acquisition and proposed restricted issue. By virtue of his shareholding in Divine Inventions, Datuk Seri Chiau Beng Teik, the Executive Chairman of Chin Hin Group Berhad, will become a major shareholder of LTKM.

Under the proposed acquisition, the vendors have provided a profit guarantee for Local Assembly of a minimum profit after tax (PAT) of RM28.00 million for the financial year ending 31 December 2022 or not less than an aggregate of RM50.00 million PAT for both financial years ending 31 December 2022 and 2023. Based on the guaranteed PAT of RM28.00 million for the financial year ending 31 December 2022, the purchase consideration represents a price to earnings multiple of 12 times.

For Chai Voon Sun, co-founder and Managing Director of Local Assembly, the listing of Local Assembly via LTKM means a realisation of 2 decades of hardwork for him and his co-founders and a step forward in the company's journey of growth and expansion. "This transaction is a major milestone for Local Assembly. We look forward to the next phase of our corporate journey as a listed entity, which will further accelerate our growth as an EMS player, allow us to expand our customer base and product offerings and pursue more opportunities" he adds.

Local Assembly, which started operations in 2000, is a manufacturer of electronic, electrical and plastic injection moulded components, and sub-contract assembler of electrical appliances and equipment. Its principal markets are Malaysia and Singapore. For the financial year ended 31 December 2022, Local Assembly achieved PAT of RM20.06 million on the back of a revenue of RM116.35 million.

The application for the proposals is expected to be submitted to the relevant authorities by the second quarter of 2022. Subject to approvals from relevant parties including Securities Commission, Bursa Securities Malaysia Berhad as well as shareholders of LTKM, the proposals are expected to be completed in the first half of 2023.

M & A Securities Sdn Bhd is Adviser to LTKM for the proposals.

OTT Summit Ends with Much Optimism for Growth in Asia and a Strong Focus on Content and the Consumer

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

Singapore, Apr 6, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - The Asia Video Industry Association (AVIA) hosted over 850 delegates and featured over 80 industry leaders at the recent OTT Summit, with conversations revolving a lot on the subject of growth, from subscriber and revenue growth to increased local content investment and an intense focus on the customer.

In discussing the outlook for the video industry in Asia, Vivek Couto, Executive Director and Co-Founder of Media Partners Asia (MPA), indicated there remained a lot of room for growth. With most markets having an SVOD household penetration of less than 50%, there was certainly an upside for Southeast Asia and some parts of North Asia as well. However, while the region remained bullish on growth, the Average Revenue Per User remained low, particularly in the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, and India. As such, some tiers and price increases would be introduced along the way, especially when premium sport started to be added to the platforms.

The adage of "Content is King" was very much heard throughout the summit. In MPA's review of share of first-title consumption, premium local content was a key driver for customer acquisition, particularly in Indonesia and Thailand, with local content that showed some travelability, and as expected, with Korean content traveling very well, and some Japanese content as well.

This focus on content continued through to the fireside chat with Catherine Park, SVP, Head of Office & Streaming for Asia, Paramount Global, where she reiterated that their "mission is to unleash the power of the content with the belief that content is king." With different go-to-market strategies to unlock maximum value, Paramount Plus planned to launch first in Korea with CJ ENM, then Japan as the next market followed by Southeast Asia in 2023. Park also shared Paramount's "glocal" strategy - to have global vision but with local execution.

The importance of being local was also echoed by many panellists, as Asia could not be seen as one homogenous market. Sagar Pandit, Associate Director, Business Development, Asia Pacific, Discovery, Inc., said, "When you gun for growth, especially in Asia, it's about tailoring your approach for every region but keeping your consumer at the front and centre of whatever you are doing."

And with increasing fragmentation in Asia, customer obsession became a key part of the strategy, as more platforms leveraged technology to deliver personalised experiences. For Parminder Singh, Chief Commercial and Digital Officer, Mediacorp, the three things a customer looked for were highly personalized and relevant content, and new virtual interactive experiences, all built into one single experience, with the use of technology that would allow you to bring all of this to the customer. "If you are only delivering a straightforward service, you are going to be left behind," added Akash Saxena, Head of Technology, Disney+ Hotstar India.

However, the challenge to integrate it all into an operator's platform for a seamless experience very much remained, calling for perhaps greater aggregation and bundling for the OTT industry, as we started to see some fatigue from consumers working with multiple services to meet their content needs.

Closing off the summit with Bold Predictions for the Future of Streaming, Gourav Rakshit, COO, Viacom18 Digital Ventures, remained very optimistic, sharing that a large bet that platforms had not fully capitalised on was the area of media becoming social, with the opportunity to build communities. "We've really made rapid strides in the last five years . . . the next five will be focusing a lot more on delivering consumer delight," said Rakshit.

The OTT Summit is generously supported by Gold Sponsors Brightcove, Lumen Technologies, Synamedia, TV5MONDE, Xandr and Silver Sponsors Akamai, Amagi, Broadpeak, BytePlus, Discovery, Encoding.com, Endeavor Streaming, Irdeto, Magnite, Mediacorp, Mirada, NAGRA, Nielsen, PubMatic and Vindicia.
