The First Trading Platform of LEOCoin – LEOxCHANGE Launched in HK Today

A revolution for digital currency to go into mainstream

HONG KONG, April 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — LEOxCHANGE, which serves as the first online exchange of the world’s second largest digital currency LEOCoin, was officially launched today. Members are able to make more direct, instant and secure transactions with LEOCoin, with no intermediary charging commission. Before, LEOCoin was launched officially in London on the 25thMarch 2015 at the iconic Tower of London, and was announced that it would be recognised by other digital currency exchanges. The developers are also looking to expand its on and offline merchant base around the world to accept LEOCoin for goods and services ranging from vinyl records and bicycles to real estate, to build a strong supporting community for the new currency. In its initial phases, around 100,000 entrepreneurs have already adopted it in anticipation of its market debut, marking LEOCoin as the second largest digital currency after Bitcoin.

Co-founders, Dan Andersson and Atif Kamran, introduced the launching of LEOcoin as a digital revolution​.

Co-founders, Dan Andersson and Atif Kamran, introduced the launching of LEOcoin as a digital revolution​.

Dan Andersson, Co-Founder of LEOCoin, described the launch of LEOCoin today as an important chapter in the evolution of the global digital currency market. “SMEs find transaction fees a concern when doing business abroad. With our transparent and straightforward operating system, we are confident to gain trust from users and thus help boost their scope for business.”

The design of LEOCoin aims for the world’s entrepreneurs as well as private individuals. By applying a new generation of technology, LEOCoin surpasses other digital currencies in terms of usability and accessibility. In addition, a high level encryption system keeps track of all transactions and records, to assure users their trading environment and personal data is kept safe. Dan anticipated within five years that individuals and casual users will have increased exponentially, as ordinary consumers start to see the benefits of privacy and accessibility offered by LEOCoin, whether trading at home or abroad.

The long-term sustainability is also one of the product features. LEOCoin has committed to releasing a maximum of 28,800 LEOCoins per day for a limited period of 99 years, equating to a total of 1bn LEOCoins, after which no more will be generated. Under the foundation of a finite number of LEOCoins, the value will increase robustly as demand increases.

Given the negative publicity many of the digital currencies have had, Dan felt no surprise on the backlash of scepticism, and attributed the issue to the system flaw of being complicated, inaccessible and not user friendly. “The industry needs to do much more to establish its credibility. This is a very dynamic and fast moving area in financial services and we are aiming to bring digital currency into the mainstream.”

About Dan Andersson

Dan has been self-employed since the age of 21 and has a background in management and training consultancy, much gained within the direct selling industry worldwide. He is a Master Practitioner Trainer and facilitator of Neuro Linguistic Programming.

After working with a range of businesses from banks and professional services to large retailers including Toyota and DHL, Dan returned to the direct selling industry when a UK Telecoms company asked him to join them as European Sales Director. From there he joined one of the largest Chinese companies where he was responsible for the 24 countries in Europe, as well as Israel, Canada and USA.

Prior to founding LEOTraining, Dan joined an entrepreneurial start-up, and from a base of just 300 distributors, grew it to 13 million accounts through an innovative hybrid of social networking and direct selling. In early 2012, he elected to leave the business to pursue his own vision and founded LEOTraining with Atif Kamran.

About LEO

LEO stands for Learning Enterprises Organisation Ltd and offers entrepreneurship and leadership training through e-tutoring, e-learning and live seminars. Headquartered in the UK, it has subsidiaries in nine countries and members in 120 countries.

LEOCoin was initially introduced as a demonstration tool to illustrate how digital currencies work as part of the LEO training programme. In May 2014, as they had already successfully created the concept, Dan and Atif  decided to formalise LEOCoin  as an actual digital currency which acted as a type of ‘bonus’ for successfully completing training modules.

The decision to launch LEOCoin on an exchange and make it available to everyone came from the desire to make digital currencies more mainstream, and to allow a much greater number of people to benefit from increased security and privacy, as well as reduced or non-existent transaction fees currently charged by banks and other finance sources.

Dan stressed that the high security level can protect consumer privacy.

NYC Marathon Ran Safely With Partner Power

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, April 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ —

Shared security network used Milestone video surveillance hub to integrate a multi-vendor solution; 40 local agencies viewed feeds to manage crowd and runner safety.  

Milestone Systems XProtect® open platform video management software (VMS) was at the core of the collaborative effort between the 2014 New York City Marathon team and many local agencies. The networked solution integrated components from top vendors of IP and wireless security systems equipment, including remote and mobile technology that resolved issues of critical overview for ensuring safety at this huge event.

To view the Multimedia News Release, please click:

http://www.multivu.com/players/English/7487151-nyc-marathon-with-partner-power/

     (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130916/639134 )

For thousands of runners pushing the limits of their physical endurance, the finish line at the TCS New York City Marathon represented the achievement of a lifetime. For those responsible for safety, however, the very same finish line presented challenges. Tall trees that line the curvy roads and pathways in Central Park do not provide a clear line of sight, and often runners are hidden from the view of medical and safety personnel responsible for responding to emergencies.  

With 50,530 finishers and an estimated 2 million onlookers in 2014, the TCS New York City Marathon was the world’s largest ever. Tata Consulting Services (TCS) was the event’s title sponsor but the New York Road Runners (NYRR) organized the event, as they have for many years.

NYRR hired a strong team of leading security industry partners. VIRSIG LLC configured and deployed a wireless network in and around Central Park, including the marathon’s finish line. The network consisted of the latest Sony network surveillance cameras, and ethernet transmitters provided by Network Video Technologies (NVT). These components were linked with Firetide wireless mesh nodes that securely transmitted video and voice data to the Race Command Center where a Milestone XProtect® Smart Wall displayed 36 simultaneous camera views. Milestone video management software (VMS) served as the platform for live and recorded playback. Centennial Security Integration assisted with installation to transform the multiple-node architecture into a seamless unified system.

Milestone Open Platform Runs with High Performance  

The open platform architecture of the Milestone VMS made it possible to configure and deploy a network with the depth and flexibility to deliver reliable functionality to more people in more places. The IPELA engine of Sony’s ultra-wide, dynamic-range network cameras provided the outputs, including fixed models with on-board video analytics, Pan-Tilt-Zoom and 360-degree views. These were managed and displayed through Milestone XProtect® Corporate VMS developed for large-scale, high-security deployments. The Command Center had a consolidated operational view in a 55-screen XProtect® Smart Wall, while roving staff could view video on the move using the Milestone Mobile client.

Glenn Taylor, Executive Director, VIRSIG LLC, said: “Milestone’s open platform enabled us to provide a high-availability, high-performance network with the high-availability, high-performance video management system.”

A Consolidated, Operational View 

Dr. Stuart Weiss is the medical director for the New York Road Runners. On race day, his job was to direct the tent near the finish line that was fully staffed as an emergency room. The goal was to treat onsite as many runners as possible requiring medical attention who could then be sent home. Weiss said that the video capabilities proved to be a critical part of his team’s situational awareness, supporting decision making through views of the finish line, walk-off areas, Central Park and various points along the marathon’s course.

Being able to see runners as they finished the race helped his team identify those who needed emergency room treatment and what type of care to provide for injuries that could be treated in the tent. The sheer number of people made it complicated to keep track of what was going on as runners cooled down on their way to the area for reuniting with family and friends. In addition, the cool-down period is when trauma is most likely to occur.

“The Milestone software helped us integrate all the camera feeds into one screen area we could easily look at to see what was happening across the area,” Weiss said. “We used it to make critical decisions throughout the day.”

The race commander used his view of the five medical tents to decide which tents were at capacity and needed more medical personnel and which tents were able to receive additional people. At one point the electricity went out on one of the poles where a camera was mounted, and a technical person used the Milestone Mobile client on a smartphone to send images from that location back to the command center.

Greater Reach for Better Safety  

Central Park West is one location where a network would be difficult to deploy if it weren’t for wireless capabilities. Glenn Taylor reports that the Milestone open platform’s ability to support a wide range of wireless devices gave the deployment far greater reach. He explained that most wireless equipment requires a clear line of sight – a rare luxury in a setting known for winding roads and dense vegetation. VIRSIG overcame that by installing wireless transmitting devices at the tops of 140-foot utility poles to receive signals from the IP cameras that carried the data to the servers, where the images dramatically increased the marathon’s overall situational awareness.

“The wireless mesh extended the network into areas where you typically would not be able to put a network,” he says. “We created a platform that everyone was able to share in order to make the marathon a safer, more secure event.”

360 Security is an all-in-one utility app that provides free, all-around protection of mobile lifestyles with features that speed up device performance, thoroughly clean junk files, eradicate viruses, and more.

“It’s clear that in the leaderless market for mobile security and optimization services, 360 Security is emerging to become the de facto provider of essential mobile tools that keep all Android devices running problem-free worldwide,” says Huang Yan, Head of Product at 360 Security.

Refreshed brand and product fuels 360 Security’s growth

360 Security attributes its recent successes to its renewed focus on delivering an improved intuitive design and robust antivirus engine, coupled with a refreshing new brand pivoted around the knowledge that Android users around the world seek a simple, hassle-free, yet effective solution to both protect themselves and keep their devices running efficiently.

For starters, 360 Security’s recent version (3.0 and later) leverages Android Lollipop’s Material Design Standards to re-envision and overhaul in-app actions to deliver a frictionless and intuitive user experience. Of course the user experience is only half the battle. Every feature, whether junk file cleaner, antivirus, or memory booster, packs the world’s most advanced and reliable technology. For instance 360 Security is powered by Qihoo 360’s enterprise-grade antivirus engine, named the best Android security product of 2014 by AV-TEST.

“We shifted our focus to ensure that 360 Security could be used by all Android users, tech-savvy and non tech-savvy alike, and provided effortless access to an all-in-one suite of the world’s most reliable services,” says Huang. “The overwhelmingly positive response and rapid adoption has been proof that we’re headed in the right direction by effectively solving Android users’ major pain points.”
