Mytvchain.com Launches Its Ico

MyTVchain allows sports clubs to create their free web TV and publish videos relevant to their club and sports teams. Combining MyTVchain with blockchain allows the community to claim control of their content and create value out of it. Users (MyTVchainers) are rewarded with tokens for each video watched and can choose to donate some of their tokens to a club of their choice, purchase services from other web TVs (subscriptions, video purchases, etc.) or even reward filmmakers based on the quality and content of their videos. Blockchain is the best suited technology to allow MyTVchain to grow its online platform and achieve its strategic objectives: decentralization, free use, sustainability of the ecosystem, incentivizing users to earn tokens (the MyTV tokens) by creating, publishing, sharing videos and making donations.

“We have tested the concept through a Proof of Concept for several weeks last year and thanks to the results obtained, we were able to validate concepts, models and assumptions from about 25,000 users and 500,000 views on sports that are not particularly popular. Our vision is to allow every sports club, including the smallest ones, to publish its content on its own web TV, allowing the club to animate its community rather than losing control of revenues and publications on major video platforms “explains Corneliu Fridgant, President.

MyTVchain will be the issuer of the “smart contract”: MyTVchain allows sports clubs to create their web TV and engage with their communities (fans, supporters, friends and families) while generating additional revenue to grow their activities. Unlike most ICOs, the platform is already functional and hosting sports clubs.

MyTVchain plans to issue the MyTV token to finance its development and aims to raise $ 35 million (considering discount sales), of which about 50% will be invested in the development and integration of the blockchain. MyTVchain will be presenting its ICO at BlockShow Asia Singapore November 27- December 1st ,  World Blockchain Summit Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia in February 2019 and Blockchain Summit 27 – 28 February 2019.

The company will be supported by Marketkaps (Corporate finance & ICO) and Chaineum (first French operator dedicated to fundraising in cryptocurrency) for its token issuance to develop the first web TV platform dedicated to sports clubs and athletes, powered by blockchain.

NANJING, China, Nov. 13, 2018 /Xinhua-AsiaNet/ — On October 28, the 2018 GCHERA World Agriculture Prize (WAP) Ceremony and the “Belt and Road” Cooperation Forum on Agricultural Education and Research were held in Nanjing Agricultural University (NAU). Eric Yirenkyi Danquah, professor of the University of Ghana and Rattan Lal, professor of Ohio State University, won the 2018 World Agriculture Prize for their outstanding achievements in crop breeding and soil sustainable management.

More than 100 leaders, experts of agricultural-related universities from 15 countries including the United States, Canada, and South Africa etc., gathered in NAU. Together with nearly 1,000 faculties and students from NAU, they took the opportunity of the WAP Ceremony to discuss global agricultural research and education innovation in life sciences.

Prof. Danquah has long been committed to the breeding development and promotion of local high-quality crop varieties. Three high-yielding maize hybrids released in Ghana have significantly improved corn productivity. In 2007, he promoted the establishment of the West Africa Center for Crop Improvement (WACCI) at the University of Ghana. Prof. Danquah promoted the University of Ghana to establish an international master’s degree in seed science and biotechnology center, making the University of Ghana one of the best endowed, focused and supported higher educational institutions for agriculture and the life sciences in all Sub-Saharan Africa.

Prof. Lal has long been concerned about agroecosystems and the sustainable management of soil resources, and believes that “the health of soil, plants, animals, humans and ecological areas is an inseparable whole”. 40 years ago, he carried out the world’s first research on the effects of deforestation on climate, oil and crop growth. Since 1987, he has been working to improve crop output and quality, reduce chemical use, mitigate climate change and restore soil health by regulating the storage and management of organic carbon concentrations in the soil.

WAP is an international award established by Global Confederation of Higher Education Associations for Agricultural and Life Sciences (GCHERA). The prize aims to encourage individuals who have made outstanding contributions to education, research and innovation in agricultural and life sciences. It includes agriculture, forestry, natural resources, food, bio-based products, biomass energy, rural development, natural environment and other fields.

WAP was formally proposed by both Prof. Zhai Huqu, former President of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS) and Prof. Zhou Guanghong, President of NAU on October 20, 2012 on NAU’s 110th anniversary. It was approved by the General Assembly at the GCHERA Executive Committee Uruguay meeting on October 29, 2012. The GCHERA WAP has been awarded six times in succession, which has exerted a wide range of influence at home and abroad, contributing to global exchange and cooperation in related fields, and has inspired international scientists on innovation in agriculture and life sciences around the world.

New Start, New Development: Shandong Amazes the World with its Speed of Development

JINAN, China, Nov. 9, 2018 /Xinhua-AsiaNet/– On October 16-19, 2018, the Information Office of the People’s Government of Shandong Province hosted a successful event with the theme of “Shandong-New Start, New Development”. Reporters from the mainstream media, such as the Associated Press (AP), Agence France-Presse (AFP), the Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK), the European Pressphoto Agency (EPA), the Korean Broadcasting System (KBS), ORF, Japan’s Tokyo Newspaper, etc., traveled to Jinan, Qingdao, and Yantai in quick succession. They visited scientific research institutions, factory buildings and workshops, and port docks where they interviewed various people, going on to report some of the new development initiatives in Shandong.

During the interviews, world-class “Made in Shandong” achievements elicited great praise from the reporters. When it comes to assembly density and performance per watt, the Sunway Bluelight Supercomputer System in the National Supercomputer Center in Jinan is one of the world’s most advanced computer systems. China’s largest white goods manufacturer, Haier, has whole-heartedly embraced artificial intelligence. The Bright Moon Seaweed Group (BMSG), the world’s largest seaweed biological product enterprise, has witnessed extraordinary growth. Qingdao port, a year-long sludge- and ice-free deep-water port, ranks the first in the world in terms of container loading and unloading efficiency at the unmanned automated dock. The world’s most advanced deep-water double drilling tower semi-submersible drilling platforms — Bluewhale I and Bluewhale II — showcased their immense power. The Yantai Changyu Pioneer Wine Company has long focused on becoming a large, modern, world-class wine production region. All these initiatives vividly reveal the speed and prosperity of development in Shandong Province.

In recent years, implementing the concept of new development, Shandong Province has pursued high-quality development and has made notable achievements in the replacement of old growth drivers with new ones, marine technology research and development, opening up trade, etc.
