Beyond Imagination’s New Humanoid Robot Will Connect People Coast to Coast Physically

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

NEW YORK, Apr 22, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Beyond Imagination, Inc. is building humanoid robots to solve the world's labor crisis by expanding access to jobs around the globe.

This week, the Beomni robot will appear at Explorers Club Headquarters and at the annual dinner on Saturday April 23rd in New York City. At the same time, across the country in Beverly Hills, CA, attendees at the Abundance360 Annual Summit will be able to remotely pilot the robot from 2,800 miles away.

Beomni is the world's most sophisticated general-purpose humanoid robot, capable of performing an almost unlimited number of tasks. Beomni's AI Brain learns from its human pilots and becomes increasingly autonomous over time.

Beomni will help solve the labor crisis by creating a global elastic labor force, lifting millions of people out of poverty by giving them access to jobs around the world. For example, the International Labour Organization (ILO) reports that "More than 2.3 million workers die every year as a result of occupational accidents or work-related diseases." With Beomni, dangerous work will become completely safe because the robot will be the one taking the risks.

Elder Care is a $932B market today. We will help solve the elder crisis by enabling families to care for their own regardless of the distance between them and by multiplying the effectiveness of existing health care workers.

CEO and Founder Dr. Harry Kloor says, "We are thrilled to have been invited to demonstrate the advances we've made in Beomni's development at the Explorers Club. Beomni will be a great vehicle for explorers on earth and beyond! We share the spirit of exploration and discovery that is the hallmark of the Explorers Club."

Astronaut and Explorers Club President Richard Garriott adds, "For the last decade, I have been a power USER of early telepresence robotics devices, so I deeply appreciate the advancements in Beomni. We welcome the opportunity to showcase Dr. Kloor's creation alongside other world-changing technologies at our event. Smart technologies like Beomni will play an important part in helping solve the challenges the world is facing. On Earth, in space and on planets beyond Earth, robots like Beomni will play an essential role!"

The robot will be on display all week at the Explorers Club headquarters so members can have an opportunity to pilot it. On Saturday, Beomni will move to The Glass House, where the annual dinner is being held. Beomni will be serving drinks and hors d'oeuvres at the reception, and at the afterparty guests will also have the opportunity to pilot the robot.

Meanwhile, across the country in Beverly Hills, a second Beyond Imagination team will be set up at the Abundance360 Annual Summit. From there, Beomni will be operated from coast to coast. Members in attendance at the A360 Summit will be able to perform tasks, pick up and examine objects and even shake someone's hand across the country.

Abundance360 Founder, Peter Diamandis remarked, "Beyond Imagination dramatically changes the paradigm of how companies will provide services in the future, how and where you will receive healthcare, where you work and play."

About Beyond Imagination, Inc.

Beyond Imagination is a robotics and AI platform company that is focused on bringing humanoid robots to market rapidly. By partnering a human pilot with an evolving AI Brain, we will soon be able to deploy our Beomni Robotics platform across a wide range of commercial applications. Our practical, real-world approach is closer to that of Tesla, which released its vehicles and then built AI from the data that they collected, rather than that of other companies that are focused on narrow R&D domains.

Founded by leading innovators in AI and robotics, and strengthened by a solid patent portfolio, Beyond Imagination, Inc. is poised to revolutionize life and fundamentally change the way we work, travel and engage with others around the world.

Beyond Imagination is actively seeking business partners and investors for its Series A round. Details will be provided to qualified investors upon request. In-person demos are available by appointment for media and investors. Beyond Imagination is also seeking additional partners for pilot studies in medicine and beyond.

About The Explorers Club

Since its inception in 1904, members of the Club have traversed the earth, the seas, the skies, and even the moon, on expeditions. First to the North Pole, first to the South Pole, first to the summit of Mount Everest, first to the deepest point in the ocean and first to the surface of the moon - all accomplished by Explorers Club Members. Notable members include Teddy Roosevelt, Neil Armstrong, Jane Goodall, Edmund Hillary, John Glenn, Sally Ride, Bob Ballard, and more. https://www.explorers.org/

Metallika.Inc Announces Integration of Blockchain to Mining of Natural Resources

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

NEW YORK, Apr 22, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Metallika.Inc, a global company focusing on the decentralization of mineral mining, has announced the integration of blockchain technology to its mining operations. The processes involved in mining are made up of a lot of stages with enormous data. In order to make our mining projects available to all investors, no matter big or small, Metallika is launching its own utility token. The company is collaborating in a series of exploration projects that include the granite project (currently in the development stage), beach sand mineral project (feasibility stage), chrome mineral trading, and graphite project (discovery stage). All the mining projects have passed through the initial 4 to 5 stages of the mining lifecycle and can start production within a space of 2 years. The team has also created a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) to facilitate fast, reliable, and transparent communication among partners in the exploration and mining cycle.

The Metallika DAO

The decentralized autonomous organization created by the Metallika team is a system designed to operate on the blockchain autonomously. It completely adheres to the rules encoded into the smart contract. Every financial transaction within the DAO and the software rules of the smart contract will be stored within the chain of the transaction blocks. The team deployed distributed database technologies, secure timestamps to organize a secure digital ledger of contracts, deeds, and records that ensure ownership for all the DAO participants.

The major product of the DAO Metallika is cloud services. The Metallika DAO provides reliable and transparent communication between participants in the mining cycle with the cloud services. These participants are enabled to form partnerships and also obtain investments at every stage of the cycle. All members of the DAO can access the documentation stored in IPFS and manage approval processes for documentation generated during exploration. They can also issue digital commodity backend tokens that are backed by minerals.

The Metallika Token

It is a utility token that enables the operation of the Metallika DAO. The token guarantees access to the products and services of the DAO. One of the major properties of the token is that you can access it within the private Metalika DAO and other public blockchain networks like Binance Smart Chain (BSC) and Ethereum. The team is currently working on expanding the number of public blockchains for the token. The total token supply is 300,000,000, and 50% (150,000,000) will be an ERC-20 compliant token, while the remaining half will be BEP-20.

Upcoming Token Sale

The first stage of the token sale will be for the 300 million tokens on the public blockchain networks (Ethereum and BSC). Once the Metallika DAO goes live, a liquidity pool of tokens will be created within the DAO. It will be equal to the total number of tokens already issued on the public blockchains. The price per Metallika token is $0.1.

About Metallika.Inc

Metallika.Inc is a blockchain-powered company that tokenizes the services of mining natural resources. Companies and individuals who hold the Metallika token will be granted access to the data about mineral resources. These token holders can be part of the exploration and extraction of these resources.

Heroes of Arcan, the DAO-Powered Heroic Fantasy Play-to-Earn Game, Announces Upcoming Token Sale

Tallinn, Estonia, Apr 22, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Heroes of Arcan, an upcoming play-to-earn epic heroic fantasy game that aims to place the destiny of the world of Arcan in the hands of players for both in-game action and development is set to launch a token and NFT sale event in Q2 2022 that will allow players to participate in the development of the world of Arcan and access ARCAN tokens prior to launch.

Of 100 million ARCAN tokens minted on the WAX blockchain, 14 percent will be reserved for the Heroes of Arcan play-to-earn model, 6 percent to a private sale underway in Q2 2022, and 12.5 percent for the public token sale. A further 24 percent will be held in reserve in a community wallet and used to reward players and ARCAN token holders that stake in the Heroes of Arcan DAO.

Heroes of Arcan, founded by Thomas Gio, is set to launch in mid-Q3 2022. Further information on the Heroes of Arcan project and token sale can be found via socials.

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

The play-to-earn gaming industry has created an NFT-fuelled revolution over the last year. Over the course of 2022, play-to-earn games saw over $4.5 billion in trading volume transacted through blockchain-based games across over 754,000 daily active wallets.

Many of the play-to-earn games available to players today, however, lack the narrative and multiplayer community features associated with games within the mainstream gaming market. In many cases, play-to-earn games place a strong emphasis on generating potentially valuable NFT-based game elements that can be sold for a profit through in-game or secondary markets for cryptocurrency.

Heroes of Arcan aims to disrupt the contemporary play-to-earn paradigm with an epic narrative-rich heroic strategy game that pits players against each other within a vibrant, evolving fantasy universe. Drawing from strategic resource and territory management games, MMOs, and hero-focused elements of MOBA games, Heroes of Arcan is positioned to bring the "play" back into the "play-to-earn" model.

Building the First Player-Driven Epic Fantasy Game DAO

Heroes of Arcan launches players into the fantasy world of Arcan, in which players join factions and compete over territory fractured by conflict, war, and magical catastrophes of world-ending proportions. The world of Arcan is represented by 20,000 individual land pieces, each of which is an NFT — players collect sources, build tools, and capture land in order to create structures and collect Heroes.

The epic fantasy narrative of Heroes of Arcan provides play-to-earn gamers with far more than a means of generating profit from their playtime — Heroes of Arcan developers have made a concerted effort to create a vivid world in which their players are able to form alliances, create and execute novel strategies, and create teams of powerful heroes.

While Heroes of Arcan integrates many of the features expected of a strategy play-to-earn game, such as upgradable equipment, structures and tools, harvestable resources, and in-game marketplaces that allow players to trade with one another, a number of unique social and governance features make Heroes of Arcan a highly disruptive presence within the play-to-earn market.

Dynamic Peer-to-Peer Marketplace Reinvents Play-to-Earn Model

The resources, heroes, territory, and other gameplay elements of the Heroes of Arcan universe can be freely traded by players through an in-game marketplace. The way in which Heroes of Arcan handles trading in-game, however, functions very differently from the static, centralized models found in many other play-to-earn games.

Rather than operate in a vertical manner, the Heroes of Arcan economy integrates an organic growth model that promotes player-driven economic evolution and prevents economic imbalance. Arcanium, Heroes of Arcan's in-game currency, is represented by the ARCAN token, placing control over the flow of value in the world of Arcan in the hands of players.

Transactions and trades made with ARCAN in Heroes of Arcan are subject to a tax, which forwards a part of fees paid by players using in-game marketplaces to a community wallet. ARCAN held in this community pool is used to reward players that stake ARCAN in order to participate in the Heroes of Arcan DAO.

Heroes of Arcan allows players to interact directly with the governance and development of the universe of Arcan by implementing a Decentralized Autonomous Organization model — players that stake ARCAN not only receive rewards from the community wallet, but can also propose and vote on changes that will affect the destiny of Heroes of Arcan.

The Heroes of Arcan economic model is supported by a horizontal gameplay system that ensures new players are able to gain a footing in the competitive world of Arcan, eliminating the centralization of resources and in-game power that occurs in other play-to-earn games.

Social interaction plays an important role in the world of Heroes of Arcan. New players of Heroes of Arcan choose a faction — the diplomatic Preachers, the warlike Conquerers, or the magically adept Wiser — to align with. Each faction is represented by a continent in the world of Arcan. Players in each faction are able to communicate with each other in dedicated Discord servers, opening the door to the formation of player alliances and guilds - or betrayal.

Economic sustainability within Heroes of Arcan is driven by additional features that will include mini-games, seasonal events, and territory updates. Early stages of the game offer power and economic scaling through resource collection, but later updates will provide players with the opportunity to improve and level up heroes, lands, tools, and equipment, create potions and enchantments, or build new architecture elements to add additional layers of economic complexity.

Robust Story-Driven Gameplay

The lore that drives the gameplay within Heroes of Arcan provides players with a far more compelling storytelling experience than any other play-to-earn game on the market. Heroes of Arcan developers provide a robust narrative and history behind the world of Arcan, launching players into a world in which three factions compete for territorial dominance.

Heroes offer players a powerful way to gain passive benefits when collecting resources, as well as a means of exploring new territory and gaining access to randomized loot drops through chests.

However, the use of data analytics allows companies to foresee trends, improve operations, and streamline operations. By increasing efficiency and productivity, data analytics can help ASEAN companies become more competitive globally.

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.

SARAWAK, Malaysia, Apr 13, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - A deep interest in forestry prompted Januarie Kulis, 37, to turn this field into a career. She has been the Niah National Park Ranger since 2011, and has never regretted leaving the city's busy atmosphere and making flora and fauna as her 'office'.

Born in Sibu, Sarawak, Januarie is a graduate in Bachelor of Forestry Science from Universiti Putra Malaysia and has been with the Sarawak Forestry Corporation since 2006.

As park ranger, Januarie is responsible for managing overall field operations at Niah National Park including protection and conservation, management and eco-tourism.

"When I graduated from university, I chose to work in this field. I wanted to be a part of the process of conservation and protection of this treasure. Now, I have the opportunity to be directly involved in conserving and protecting the invaluable natural world."

While this career seems tough and far from the perception of every woman's dream job, Januarie never considered her job as a challenge because she was doing the job she loved.

For Januarie, many valuable memories and experiences can be enjoyed that may not be available through other careers. She is able to meet and engage with different communities through the programmes conducted.

"Many tourists think that all national parks in Sarawak are the same until they visit every national park in the state. Each national park in Sarawak has its own value and provides a different experience for each visitor.

"In Niah National Park, there are four significant attractions, which are archaeological historical sites, swiftlet nests (sarang burung walit), limestone and biodiversity," she said.

Niah Cave is in the hinterland of Miri, Sarawak and has been gazetted as a historic site under the authority of the Sarawak Museum and located within the Niah National Park which is protected by the National Park and Nature Reserve Ordinance.

Januarie said that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Niah National Park had to be closed for a period of time. However, they are ready to reopen the national park with stricter Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) in compliance with the recommendations of the Ministry of Health Malaysia (MOH).

"The tourism industry plays an important role in connecting this national park with the public as well as generating economic income. National parks can provide many benefits in terms of physical, spiritual and mental."

"Those who love nature will be able to enjoy peace at this park. Eco-tourism has many benefits and can build a healthy society," she said.

Eco-tourism is one of the main themes of tourism activities in Sarawak. Now, many city dwellers have begun to appreciate the values of nature as a therapeutic tool to get away from the congestion of city life.

The flora and fauna found in Sarawak is unique and has an undeniable diversity, both for researchers and the general public. Iconic species such as orangutans, rafflesia flowers and a variety of habitats provide an exciting experience for tourists.

Meanwhile, according to a Sarawak Forestry Corporation (SFC) spokesperson, efforts to make Gua Niah National Park recognised as a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization (UNESCO) is underway.

"Niah National Park has been listed in the category of 'MIXED PROPERTIES' which means it has both advantages in terms of nature and culture that can be highlighted and has the opportunity to compete with other candidates in the world," she said.
