Bybit CEO Calls For Wall St to Embrace Crypto

Wall St Should Look to Adapt to Crypto, Not the Other Way AroundVICTORIA, SEYCHELLES - Media OutReach - 28 September 2022 - Ben Zhou, co-founder and CEO of Bybit, the top 3 crypto exchanges in the world by web traffic, has called for the traditional markets to embrace the change being driven by crypto. Speaking at the Pantera Blockchain Summit Asia this week, Zhou discussed the growing convergence between traditional financial institutions and crypto. “The infrastructure is already in place and large institutions are already exploring and engaging at multiple levels with crypto leaders,” he commented. But he said, “Wall St could do a lot more to truly embrace the innovation in the market and remain relevant.” adding that traditional financial service firms run the risk of facing the same fate as Nokia. “Wall St has much more to gain if it embraces crypto, rather than the other way around.” he added. Zhou was referring to Wall St’s traditional approach of assimilating innovation, within its increasingly outdated business model, only to see the innovation stifled and suffocated under internal processes and restrictions. “There is a new financial services model for the world that is rapidly evolving,” the crypto CEO said. “The energy, innovation, and momentum are all with crypto.” He used the exodus of talent to illustrate his point and how ‘The Street’ needs to catch up in this crypto race so as not lose out as top performers. “Talent is attracted to crypto by its faster-paced environments, its hunger, and its unrestricted ability to innovate,” he said. Moderator Franklin Bi, confirmed as much when he talked of how during his time on Wall St, it would take 2 to 3 years to bring a new product to market, not the 2 to 3 weeks it takes Bybit. Zhou co-founded Bybit in 2018 as a crypto derivatives exchange with a handful of trading pairs. Since then, it has grown into a one-stop shop for all things crypto with a 10-million-strong user base.

There was a lot of discussions amongst the fans when the Series was being filmed in Tainan and with the upcoming remake, the Tainan City Bureau of Tourism used the historical and cultural attractions of the Series to create advertisements in South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Malaysia to spark tourism in Tainan after the borders have been reopened.

Tainan, located in the southern part of Taiwan, is where everything started for Taiwan and has a long history and culture.

Traffv SEO Agency Reviews How SEO Helps Businesses Counter Rising Prices

SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 27 September 2022 - As Singaporeans brace themselves for another year of rising prices, many are looking for ways to counter the effects of inflation. One way that businesses can help keep their costs down is through search engine optimization (SEO). By optimizing their websites and improving their online presence, companies can ensure that they are seen by more consumers, even in times of economic hardship. Traffv SEO Agency shares three ways that SEO can help businesses counter the effects of inflation: 1) SEO can help businesses save money on advertising. By optimizing their website for search engines, businesses can ensure that they appear at the top of search engine results pages (SERPs). This means that they will be seen by more consumers without having to spend money on paid advertising. Organic clicks do not incur a direct cost, making SEO an effective way to reach consumers without spending much money. Paid advertising can be expensive, especially when inflation drives up the cost of goods and services. Organic clicks get more conversions as users trust organic results more. In times of economic hardship, many consumers seek ways to save money. They may be less likely to buy from businesses that they are not familiar with. So even though paid ads may get more clicks, a higher percentage of users will convert more when they click on an organic result. 2) The internet will remain the most effective sales channel. Online sales have grown steadily over the past few years, and this trend is expected to continue during inflation. This means that there is a lot of potential for businesses to grow their online sales during inflation. Singaporeans will spend less during inflation, but it will most likely be online when they do spend. This is because consumers will continue to shift their spending to online channels. If anything, online searches increase during the recession for most indus ......read more

The MENA markets recognize the importance of the venture capital sector to achieve higher economic aims. Government-led initiatives have therefore been a key driver of growth in the venture capital sector in the region, evidenced by the development of start-up ecosystems. The strong sector supports Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund (PIF) has been supportive of the ecosystem mission. PIF's support of fund man ......read more

Pioneering Volumetric Cinematography For The World’s First NFT Immersive Art Film - SHIP Produced by Art Tokyo Global Pte Ltd

SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 21 September 2022 - Art Tokyo Global ("ATG"), a Singapore company, announced the completion of SHIP – the world's first immersive NFT art film. Using pioneering cinematography techniques, the film sets a new milestone for the movie industry, enabling viewers to enjoy the beautiful and realistic scenes in detail and bringing new experiences for the movie-goers. Featuring 221 NFT artworks across 14 scenes, SHIP showcases the work of over 80 emerging and established Asian artists for over 70 minutes. The film utilizes advanced cinematography techniques to capture a range of scenes in detail, from the dancers' fluid movements to the grisly detail of epic choreographed fight scenes. One of the novel techniques employed by the director is to use volumetric photography to reconstruct 3D spaces from images taken by a 2D camera. The work is shot with over 150 high-performance cameras, providing a fully-explorable 3D space, which can record any desired position or angle – something impossibly difficult to achieve with traditional 2D filming methods. The approach used is similar to the one used in industries such as sporting broadcasts and is developed as a completely new content creation method. This approach is expected to be applied in various entertainment fields by freeing it from the limitations of conventional video production. The use of volumetric photography in the SHIP film features a strong affinity between virtual rooms and NFT art, successfully constructing an environment where real actors and digital art can inhabit the same space. The artwork is freed from real-world constraints such as size and scale in a virtual environment. Actors are not bound to the confines of sets or stages and are given the freedom to experiment with new modes of physical expression. This allows for making surreal and awe-inspiring scenes incorporating digital artefacts and performance. During the film's production, the director introduced a highly flex ......read more
