Crypto-Upvotes Is Expanding Its Business by Entering the Asian Market

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

SYDNEY, Apr 13, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Crypto marketing agency Crypto-Upvotes is starting to conquer the Asian market by offering advertisements for crypto projects on billboards in Greater China region. The company will also offer promotions on local social networks such as Wechat & Tiktok. The company is expected to offer similar services in Japan and Korea in a month after the full launch in Greater China.

"The popularity of cryptocurrencies in Greater China region is growing every day, and the Asian market has not yet reached its potential. Cryptocurrencies in this region are only at the stage of development and implementation into normal life", says Crypto-Upvotes CEO Daniel Lazovsky.

The decision to expand into the Asian market was made after the successful expansion of Western markets. Until 2022, the company was engaged in advertising and promotion in the United States and Europe. In particular, at the end of last summer Crypto-Upvotes started advertising cryptocurrency projects on billboards across the United States. The first billboards appeared in downtown New York City. To date, the company offers placement on more than 300,000 billboards across the U.S.

"We're taking a really innovative approach", claims Daniel Lazovsky. "While the overwhelming majority of the advertising for cryptocurrency projects is online, we offer offline promotion. It may sound clumsy, but it works!" According to the CEO, this approach provides a comprehensive promotion. A person sees an advertisement for a cryptocurrency project online, then gets behind the wheel - and observes it on a billboard.

Billboard advertisements are a very popular form of advertising in Greater China region. Therefore, in all major cities, billboards can be seen literally on the walls of every house. The marketing team assumes that such a way of advertising cryptocurrency projects will fit organically into the overall picture of the local advertising market and bring the expected effect.

As for online activities, the company pays special attention to WeChat, the main communication software used by local Internet users. It is the local equivalent of WhatsApp. WeChat is known for having various groups about cryptocurrencies. The company will leverage this opportunity by creating new groups for its customers.

Also, many people in Greater China region like to use Tiktok, which is equivalent to YouTube in other countries. There are many Internet celebrities on Tiktok. The marketing team is considering involving different well-known personalities to create influencer marketing campaigns for its customers.

Crypto-Upvotes have been in the cryptocurrency world since 2014. In addition to billboard advertising spots, it offers crypto copywriting services, placing a crypto project on CoinMarketCap, CoinGecko, and other services to extend cryptocurrency business globally. It has contracts with major advertising agencies in the USA and Europe. In a month, Crypto-Upvotes is planning to enter the media markets of Japan and Korea to provide comprehensive solutions to promote various crypto projects.

CMGE’s (0302.HK) seven-fold growth in international revenues: an emerging growth engine

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

HONG KONG, Apr 13, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Despite regulation and a suspension of new game licenses in China, CMGE (0302.HK) grossed RMB3,957 million in 2021, representing a year-on-year increase of 3.6%, according to its 2021 annual earnings report. The company's gross profit margin increased to 37.2% in 2021 from 32.0% in 2020, while gross profit totaled RMB1,473 million, a year-on-year increase of 20.5%.

Jian Xiao, Executive Director, Chairman and CEO of CMGE, stated at the Performance Meeting that several games to be released in 2021 had been delayed due to the failure of achieving the game license as scheduled, as well as greater contributions to development and research, caused 2021 adjusted net margin to decline by 21.9%

With strong performance in 2020, CMGE's performance in 2021 is virtually superior to that of most peer companies.

01. The company's games have achieved international success with a year-on-year international game publishing revenue increasing by 7,260%, and another growth engine emerges.

CMGE's financial statements show that its profits are essentially sourced from developing and operating IP-based games, RMB905 million of which is sourced from the profits of its game development, representing a year-on-year increase of 23.9% and accounting for 22.9% of its annual business revenues, and RMB232 million of which is sourced from the profits of its IP licensing, doubled over the last year, representing a year-on-year increase of 106.9%, showing the abundant IP reserves and outstanding performance of its self-development strategy.

It's noteworthy that CMGE gained revenue of RMB459 million overseas, a year-on-year increase of 72 times. With this growth, its international revenue increased to 11.6% in 2021 from 0.2% in 2020, sharply representing the great progress from its overseas strategy of games.

According to an insider, it's inevitable for domestic game developers to make a breakthrough by surviving on international markets under the more serious regulation. Also, to survive on international markets, the company is facing challenges in all aspects such as the research and development of products, operation, marketing and organization. To survive on international markets has become a key indicator to measure whether a game developer is of competence.

At the Performance Meeting, Jian Xiao stated that CMGE, having committed to international game markets, has provided multiple games products in Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, Southeastern Asia, Europe and America and has created professional localization teams in products operation, marketing, user service and advertising. With the success of several products in practice, the international markets will be further developed, the revenue of which will also be increasing.

02. The company has laid a strong foundation for challenges with a year-on-year contribution increase of 48.9% in R&D for core competence of excellent self-developed products.

The research and development is a must for excellent products, and CMGE's financial statements shows that it has been committed to the research and development. As indicated by a set of data, CMGE has a R&D team of 624 professionals by the end of the period, representing a year-on-year increase of 30.0%; its contributions to the R&D are increased from RMB208.6 million in 2020 to RMB310.7 million in 2021, representing a year-on-year increase of 48.9% and accounting for 7.9% of the corporate revenue.

CMGE has also invested in great game developers to develop game business. According to the financial statements, CMGE has invested in over 20 game developers directly or by convertible bonds in recent years.

With its investment, merger and self-development, CMGE's R&D has become mature gradually with five major game types - numerical games, platform games, strategy games, E-sports games and card games, and several new R&D studios and subsidiaries have also been established.

In the long run, the enhanced R&D will lay a strong foundation for the continuous development of products for a game company.

Jiao Xiao believes that as the game industry has been more and more limited and regulated, the game companies must pay more attention to high-quality, multi-platform and long-cycle products and gain profits of one game from multiple platforms. Also, the companies need to attract more loyal customers and enhance user stickiness by the worldview and IP of games, social function and other factors.

Driven by technologies, the game developers should develop more quality products to meet new demands of gamers. The game "Sword and Fairy: World" self-developed by CMGE to be released is a model one.

"Sword and Fairy: World", based on the worldview and IP of "Sword and Fairy", is an immersive open-world RPG where gamers are provided with great freedom to make choices. The game is available on multiple devices including PC, console, mobile phone and VR. The game art meets the VR standard to offer the best immersive experience for gamers. CMGE expects that "Sword and Fairy: World" will be developed into a bestselling strategy game with an annual revenue of over RMB3,000 billion, a high profit ratio and a long life cycle.

03. The company expects a promising future as the returns of self-developed products in international markets will begin after significant games are released.

Next, CMGE is going to release a series of self-developed products and further promote its international markets strategy to earn more reputation among international gamers.

CMGE is scheduled to release several new games with license in the first half of 2022, including "A New Record of a Mortal's Journey to Immortality", "Ultraman: Assembly" and "All Star Fight" that were released this January.

In addition, CMGE is also looking forward to the license of several major new games including "Sword and Fairy: Wen Qing", "Rakshasa Street: Chosen One", "Cultivation Fantasy" and "Daily Life of Group Chat".

As for the expected time when the license will be granted, Jian Xiao holds the view that the reason why the authority has stopped granting game licenses is essentially related to the improvement and review of the game protection system for the minors. In the long run, the government will still support the healthy development of game industry.

In addition, the key product "Sword and Fairy: World" is about to undergo the first test in August 2022 and to be released around the middle of 2023. And the E-sports game "Code: Basketball 3V3" developed by Shanghai Zhoujing will be tested by the end of 2022 and released around the middle of 2023.

At the Performance Meeting, Jian Xiao stated that considering the status quo, the company's R&D will truly pay off in 2023 with a target that the revenue of independent R&D business accounts for 40% or even more of the total revenue in 2023.

Indonesia Continues to Lead the Way in Site Blocking

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

JAKARTA / SINGAPORE, Apr 11, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - The Coalition Against Piracy (CAP) has been tracking traffic to sites that have been blocked in Indonesia, as well as overall traffic to pirate sites and legitimate sites. The Indonesian government started blocking illegal sites in the middle of 2019 and by April this year the total number of sites blocked in Indonesia had topped 3,500. CAP's latest data also showed traffic to all pirate sites in Indonesia was down by 75% as of January this year compared to when tracking first started in September 2019. Encouragingly traffic to legitimate sites in Indonesia had also tripled over the same period.

The effectiveness of the blocking is backed up by the most recent YouGov consumer surveys undertaken by CAP in which more than 50% of Indonesian consumers say that they have stopped or rarely access pirate services as a result of blocking. Perhaps more importantly, 76% of Indonesian consumers say they are accessing more legal content and pirating less, and 26% say they have subscribed to legitimate sources as a result of illegal streaming sites being blocked. Blocking as an educational tool may also be evident in 95% of Indonesian consumers agreeing that online piracy does have negative consequences - the highest in the region.

Local movie producer Edwin Nazir, the Chairman of Asosiasi Produser Film Indonesia (APROFI) was greatly encouraged by the ongoing blocking efforts and the positive traffic data. "It is through collective consciousness and continuous effort that we can stand against piracy and bring the Indonesian film industry forward," said Nazir.

Matthew Cheetham, General Manager of CAP, noted, "Indonesia is leading the way when it comes to regulatory site blocking in the Asia Pacific region, if not the world, and the Indonesian government is to be congratulated for the strong stance they have taken in this area. Local industry is clearly benefitting from the actions, as are consumers who are not only being directed towards legitimate content, but in being blocked from accessing pirate sites, they are also protected from the serious risks that previous CAP studies shows are inherent in accessing pirate sites."

CAP's most recent YouGov consumer surveys show that while piracy continues to be a major concern around the Asia Pacific region, particularly in Vietnam, Malaysia and the Philippines, where 61% of consumers admit to accessing pirate services in each country, site blocking, and in particular government regulatory blocking, is having a noticeable effect in stopping consumers accessing pirated content online.

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

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.

Philanthropic Project, Impact Women NFTs, Launches to Combat Domestic Violence in Brazil

Florianópolis, Brazil, Apr 2, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Impact Women NFT, a philanthropic project displaying exquisite artworks handmade by a talented artist, has announced the launch of its NFT project. Aimed at combating domestic violence in the previously mentioned South American country, these beautifully crafted NFTs were created by renowned, talented, and award-winning illustrator Manu Cunhas.

Designed by Brazilian fintech to fight the scourge of domestic violence and abuse of women, Impact Women NFT will raise funds for non-profit organizations to take a stand against women's abuse on all levels.

Current statistics show that domestic violence is at an all-time high. Brazil sits fifth in the ranking of homicides globally; one woman gets raped every eleven minutes. Five hundred and three women suffer aggression every hour, one woman gets killed every two hours, and five beatings occur every two minutes.

Impact Women NFT is fighting to put an end to these crimes.

Profit Shared to Non-profit Organization, Artist, and Project Producer

Split into phases, the first one comprising 20 excellent, awe-inspiring, and elegantly designed artworks of remarkable and high-impact women in history, each of these NFT auctions will greatly benefit non-profit organizations. The goal of the first phase is to raise 30 ETH, ten in auction mode starting at the price of 0.15 ETH and ten in 50 units for a fixed fee of 0.05 ETH.

Impact Women NFT has hand-picked eight exciting and industrious non-profits aggressively fighting violence against women in Brazil. 70% of profits garnered from these NFTs sales will be set aside for organizations, 12% to support Manu Cunhas, another 12% for Doare—the project producer and social enterprise company—and 6% for carbon credits through MOSS.

The campaign will end on May 31st, 2022, and Impact Women NFT will offer rewards and surprises like special parties and airdrops in the metaverse.

A project where art meets philanthropy, Impact Women NFT, will share stories of amazing women that have changed society. The founding team selects ten Brazilian and international women to show respect and admiration for the work they have put in.

An Ambitious Roadmap

Built on sustainability and longevity, Impact Women NFT has introduced a viable and strategic roadmap comprising detailed future events. Divided into separate phases, Impact Women NFT plans to run a decentralized autonomous organization [DAO], create and launch a native token, and a non-profit crypto fund to support organizations combating domestic violence and other forms of abuse against women.

Additionally, Impact Women NFT will continue to create and release amazing, unique, well-designed, and aesthetically pleasing artworks to support life-changing non-profits.

About Impact Women NFT

Impact Women NFT is a philanthropic project that displays magnificent and well-crafted artworks made by Manu Cunhas. Aimed at combating domestic violence, Impact Women NFT will fund existing non-profits championing and empowering women in the country and beyond.

Cylum Launches Highest APY Staking Reward in the Crypto Space

London, UK, Apr 1, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Cylum Finance, a DeFi 3.0 platform, has launched the highest APY staking reward in the crypto industry. Over the years, crypto investors and traders have staked their assets for relatively average returns. Although these investors earned interest on their staked crypto assets, there is huge room for improvement. Offering an increase in APY for staked assets will undoubtedly incentive more investors to enter the market.

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

The mission of the Cylum project is to give crypto investors a more profitable reason to stake their assets on its platform.

Cylum Highest APY Reward

Cylum offers up to 395,677% APY within the first year for investors who hold the $CYM token. Since the history of crypto staking, no project has offered investors such high returns on their investment. The unique smart contract that powers Cylum's APY leverages compound interest in its reward system. As a result, all investors earn rewards every minute of the day with Cylum. The team plans to increase the earnings of investors with the launch of the mainnet offering. The mainnet also has a multi-chain decentralized application (Dapp) developed to offer users more utility within the ecosystem.

Cylum Unique Features & Uses

  • Auto-Staking & Compounding

In most existing DeFi projects, token holders have to stake their crypto assets manually. With Cylum's auto-staking and compounding, it is entirely different. Every process is automated and designed to favor investors. By purchasing and holding these tokens, investors earn active rewards directly to their respective wallets.

After the annual compound interest of 395,677% within the first year, the APY will begin to decrease.

  • Automatic-Burn

To reduce the number of $CYM in total supply and drive up the value of each token, the team is looking to make $CYM a deflationary token. With auto-burn, the team will make the token more valuable as a result of the decrease in supply and increased demand. The auto-burn feature is an algorithm created to automatically eliminate 2% of the $CYM token total supply once it is launched.

About Cylum Finance

Cylum is a DeFi 3.0 project launched to revolutionize crypto staking and reward system. Skilled developers created it with unique code. The project operates an amazing set of mechanics that ensures the protocol remains sustainable. The team also incorporated additional unique features that confer a competitive advantage on the project. Crypto staking has become one of the top ways investors make money from the market. A great platform like Cylum is essential to attracting more players to this sector of the crypto market.

The Cylum protocol serves as a launchpad for metaverse projects deployed on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC). In addition, its cylinder insurance fund ensures it is low risk with high rewards for investors.
