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."

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.

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.

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.

What is ApeCoin (APE)?
ApeCoin (APE) is the native governance token that powers the APE ecosystem. The APE ecosystem includes two of the most popular NFT communities, the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) and the Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC).
APE is an ERC-20 utility token that aims to incentivize the decentralized community. Furthermore, ApeCoin holders are said to govern themselves and the community with the help of the ApeCoin DAO - a decentralized autonomous organization. In the DAO, ApeCoin holders can vote on the evolution of the ApeCoin ecosystem and how it should be used.
Yuga Labs, the brains behind ApeCoin, say that APE utility will soon include using it for in-game purchases, merchandise, services, and events in the metaverse and ApeCoin ecosystem. Due to the popularity of BAYC and MAYC, ApeCoin has a volatile introduction to the world. For those looking to activate their crypto portfolio and play with this volatility, visit YouHodler today.
The APE Foundation is the steward of ApeCoin. It is not an overseer, but the base layer on which ApeCoin holders in the ApeCoin DAO can build.
The Foundation facilitates decentralized and community-led governance and is designed to become more decentralized over time. It is tasked with administering the decisions of the ApeCoin DAO and is responsible for day-to-day administration, bookkeeping, project management, and other tasks that ensure the DAO community's ideas have the support they need to become a reality.
The goal of the APE Foundation is to steward the growth and development of the APE ecosystem in a fair and inclusive way. It utilizes the Ecosystem Fund, which is controlled by a multi-sig wallet, to pay its expenses as directed by the ApeCoin DAO and provides an infrastructure for ApeCoin holders to collaborate through open and permissionless governance processes.
