U-Boat Worx launches 9-person flagship lithium-ion battery submersible NEXUS

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

AMSTERDAM, Apr 21, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Dutch submersible manufacturer U-Boat Worx (www.uboatworx.com) breaks the mould with the launch of the NEXUS series. U-Boat Worx is the market leader in private and commercial submersibles. Since 2017, the company has sold more than 20 of its highly successful Cruise Subs to private operators, resorts, and cruise lines.

Nexus Yellow Front Side

The NEXUS series (www.uboatworx.com/model/nexus-series) comprises two models featuring an ultra-large elliptical acrylic pressure hull with unrivalled passenger comfort. Seating up to eight passengers and one pilot, the NEXUS provides 25% more interior space than competing models. The NEXUS subs are depth-rated to 200 meters (650 feet).

Equipped with the latest lithium-ion battery technology, the subs can operate for up to 18 hours and dive up to ten times a day. 80 guests can participate in an unforgettable sub-sea adventure daily (www.uboatworx.com/model/nexus-series).

The unique revolving seating arrangement featured in the Cruise Subs has been replicated in the NEXUS. Passengers therefore always enjoy the best view, regardless of the direction the submarine is travelling. The NEXUS subs are designed as multi-directional, meaning they can manoeuvre in any direction without compromise. This is a distinguishing capability only achieved in U-Boat Worx submersibles. Ten silent thrusters provide the power required for top performance and unmatched speed.

The experience and knowledge gained from the development of the Cruise Subs has evolved the new features in the NEXUS series, including an XXL entrance hatch - the largest ever incorporated on a submersible of this size. For passengers of all ages, the entire boarding process has been streamlined, in keeping with U-Boat Worx's vision that everyone should be able to experience the oceans in a safe and comfortable manner.

A unique feature of U-Boat Worx' flagship submersibles is the optional passenger elevator, also integrated on the company's C-Researcher models.

Thanks to top-mounted diving tanks, the view abeam on both sides is unrestricted by floaters, with ample freeboard. This also leads to a stable boarding platform granting sufficient space for all occupants to stand on deck.

The NEXUS is optimised for ship-based launch and recovery, and can also be deployed from land and transported to dive sites.

In addition to the 9-person NEXUS, a marginally smaller and lighter 7-person version is available.

NEXUS - meaning a point of connection - bridges the gap between people and the ocean, providing a truly immersive aquatic encounter.

About U-Boat Worx
The 10 Submersible essentials (www.uboatworx.com/why-u-boat-worx-submarines)

For centuries, the Netherlands has been synonymous with world-class maritime innovation. U-Boat Worx is proudly continuing this tradition by leading the global submersible market. Since becoming an industry leader in submarine design, construction, and operations, we see our commitments to safety, quality and service as the major reasons for our ongoing success.

The desire to explore the deep has existed since the dawn of humanity. The popularization of scuba-diving brought the oceans within reach. Unlike scuba-diving, a manned submersible can take us deeper, in safety and comfort - without any risk of decompression.

The dream of creating a superior submersible, available to the general public, began in the 1980s. Bert Houtman, founder of U-Boat Worx, had the revolutionary idea to create submersibles that would not only be operated by the military or large oceanographic research institutes, but also for the private sector. He realized that to do that, he needed to build his own.

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.

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.
