These Exchanges Have Launched Digital Derivative Trading

Exchanges Offering Digital Derivatives

Are the Flames of War Spreading?

BitForex (NASDAQ:BF)

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 22, 2018 / — According to statistics, the number of digital-asset exchanges has already exceeded 11,000 globally, and approximately 3,000 more are added semiannually. However, among these countless exchanges, 90% of the digital currency exchanges have some problems such as single-function, poor design, poor user experience among others. The continued downturn in platform trading volume eventually leads to the closing of some exchanges in the highly competitive industry.

As the Bitcoin market turns from bull to bear, the trading volume of the entire digital currency market has shrunk sharply. The price fluctuations of mainstream currencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc. have become increasingly small, making the “profit-making effect” far worse than before. Additionally, the “blood-sucking effect” of the bull market ICO project is continuing, resulting in obviously insufficient market entry funds. The current situation is that later-investors have insufficient confidence in the market, while the high-entrant investors have been heavily tied up. The liquidity of the digital currency trading market is facing great challenge. “New blood” is urgently required by the market.

Traditional institutional investors have shown strong interest in the emerging financial market of digital currencies. But it seems that they have not taken any immediate actions, which may be attributed to the liquidity and regulatory policies of the digital currency market. To digital currency exchanges, however, institutional entry will undoubtedly bring huge liquidity. Prepare for a rainy day: to launch derivative trading tools such as forward options in a timely manner to attract new investors becomes an option for exchanges.

Derivatives are currently an innovative product in the field of digital currency trading. Its strength lies in its ability to provide investors with the “profit leverage effect” by throwing a sprat to catch a herring, and meanwhile to meet institutional investors’ diversified investment needs such as hedging, risk hedging, etc. Both can attract new investors, especially institutional investors, into the digital currency market, bringing new liquidity to the market. In the case that there’s no signs of improvement in the trading volume of the currency-against-currency trading market, a few of the world’s major digital currency exchanges have been already working on the market for derivative trading prospectively:


OKEX ( is one of the world’s leading digital asset trading platforms. It mainly provides users worldwide with spot and derivative trading services for digital assets such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, etc. It belongs to OKEX Technology Company Limited.

Currently, OKEX supports futures contract trading of BTC, ETH, LTC, BCH, ETC, XRP, EOS and other mainstream currencies. The time periods available include the week, next week, quarterly, etc. 10-time and 20-time leverage operation is supportive.

– BitForex

BitForex ( is one of the world’s leading digital asset trading platforms. Headquartered in Singapore and registered in the Republic of Seychelles, the company now has users in more than 86 countries. At present, the platform has already launched trading pairs for approximately 100 different coins and tokens, among which over 30 are the world’s leading ICO projects.

Recently, BitForex bought BitStar, a digital currency derivative exchange. According to media reports, BitStar is the world’s first exchange to launch ETH and BCH leveraged contracts. It was ranked among the world’s top 10 exchanges only three months after it had been launched. BitForex is determined to enter the derivative trading field via the acquisition of BitStar. On the one hand, BitForex promises to maximize the benefits of BitStar’s original users; BitForex promises BitStar’s STC holders to convert the BitStar platform coin STC to the upcoming platform currency of BitForex in a ratio of 3:1; and BitStar will be reconstructed into an open one-stop digital currency quantitative trading service platform; and on the other hand, BitForex will launch futures contract this month and option contract this year.

– BitMEX

Founded also in the Republic of Seychelles, BitMEX ( is an advanced Bitcoin derivative exchange that offers up to 100-time leverage for bitcoin products as well as high leverage for other digital currency products. Currently, BitMEX supports futures contract trading for BTC, ETH, LTC, BCH, XRP, EOS, TRX and other currencies.

At present, there are not many mainstream digital currency exchanges that provides derivative trading services. Some famous mainstream exchanges in China such as Binance, Huobi, etc. have not been involved in derivatives-related business yet. However, with the development of the digital currency market, institutional investors are about to enter this market, and the demand for digital currency derivative trading has been increased constantly. Exchanges entering the field of derivative trading in advance will undoubtedly create a great opportunity for themselves to stand out from the highly competitive digital currency trading industry in the fut

China’s Largest Cashmere Exporter CONSINEE GROUP Hosts Debut Runway Fashion Show in New York

Consinee "Into the Lines" fashion show

All knitwear in “Into the Lines” runway show, totaling 99 looks, is made from Consinee cashmere and fancy yarn. Photo: provided by Consinee

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 20, 2018 / — Taking place at the iconic Greek Revival venue Cipriani’s at 55 Wall Street on the evening of July 18, CONSINEE GROUP, China’s largest spinner and exporter of cashmere yarn, debuted a runway show meant to demonstrate the full range of their yarn technology and capabilities for international client brands.

“Out of every seven cashmere items sold in the world, one is made from Consinee yarn.” Boris Xue, company chairman proudly announced.

The show, first of its kind and scale offered by a Chinese textile company in the U.S., was aptly titled “Into the Lines”, alluding to the conceptual interpretation of cashmere yarn. The show’s 100-feet runway built under Cipriani’s 70-feet dome saw 99 looks presented, spanning casual and occasion wear, all knitted from Consinee’s proprietary cashmere yarn series creations.

Timed to coincide with the annual Spin Expo, a large industry presence of nearly 400 fashion insiders were present at the show, including representatives from leading fashion brands and Consinee’s long-time US clients.
This debut show was under the creative direction of Chinese-German designer Yujia Zhai-Petrow, a consultant with Valentino Haute Couture in Paris.

“Rather than presenting a conventional knitwear collection,” she said, “ the ’Into the Lines’ show contemplates and explores the luxury of cashmere and its sundry potentials activated through a synthesis with new disciplines.” Other members of the design team for this collection also include Jane Sked and Steven Oo.

Consinee chairman Boris Xue believes the show will not only demonstrate Consinee’s dedication to excellence, but also inspire their clients with new possibilities.

Consinee Group was founded in 1999 by Xue, located in the beautiful coastal city of Ningbo, China. Through nearly 20 years of continuous growth and innovation, Consinee Group has become the biggest exporter of cashmere yarn in China and completed an advanced green manufacturing industry chain base, integrating dyeing, spinning of woolen, worsted, semi-worsted and fancy yarns, as well as high quality fabrics, import-export trade, digital logistics, intelligent manufacturing and information platform.

Throughout the years, three lines CONSINEE, TOPLINE and ICCI were born to challenge the limits of the textile yarn industry through shattering and re-imagining established techniques and concepts. The company has paved its way for an international blueprint and its clientele include the world’s leading fashion brands such as Burberry, Calvin Klein, Coach, DKNY, HUGO Boss, Rag&Bone, Theory, Max Mara, Tommy Hilfiger, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kos, Diane Von Furstenberg, etc., even the most luxurious fashion brands Hermès and Chanel use some of its yarn.

Consinee has maintained a 5 year tradition of hosting an annual yacht party that sets sail on the Hudson River around Manhattan in celebration of old and new relationships with its international clients. This year, they decided to dock the party and invite guests on land for a Bellini and caviar reception, dinner, and full blown runway show, so that clients can really go home with a deeper understanding of Consinee philosophy and possibility.

“Consinee’s fashion show debut is an in-depth examination of self-strength and potential, an articulation of freedom, an attempt to illustrate the full-range of luxury cashmere yarn capabilities in a context that embraces the future”, said Boris, who has been leading the company since its inception and who is honored as the “Cashmere Prince” in the industry.

“We have a traditional Chinese saying that goes—A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, I still remember in those very early days when I made the first effort to knock on the doors of US brands with entry-level English and a suitcase of my cashmere – I ended up left out in the cold. But I have always believed that as long as we continue to improve product quality and stay positive, doors will open for win-win partnerships.”

The fashion show debut was directed by fashion veteran Christina Neault, who used to serve as the executive producer of IMG’s NYFW and is currently the fashion programming consultant at Pier 59 Studios—one of the major venues for New York Fashion Week and a premiere multimedia studio. Ms. Neault was brought on board the project by long-time partner China Fashion Collective, a New York-based luxury events production firm that executed the production for Consinee’s fashion show debut.

Gettysburg National Military Park Announces Texas Painter as August Artist in Residence

I am trying to hit at something of the sublime which is the mixture of nature's great beauty but also its’ danger and encompassing presence when you’re in it.”

— Dawn Waters Baker, NPAF Artist in Residence

GETTYSBURG, PENNSYLVANIAL, US, July 20, 2018 / — GETTYSBURG, PA — The Gettysburg National Military Park, in cooperation with the non-profit National Parks Arts Foundation (NPAF) and the Gettysburg Foundation announced today that Dawn Waters Baker, a painter from Dallas, TX, will be the park’s August 2018 resident, and will present her work to the public as well.

For the most part, Dawn paints her landscapes in oils, painstakingly building up layers, but not merely for decorative or beautiful effects, but more as a window into more intangible things. She sees the landscapes that make up the largest portion of her work not merely as useful “subjects” but as a passage into something greater than the human perspective. Explains Waters Baker: “I am trying to hit at something of the sublime which is the mixture of nature's great beauty but also its’ danger and encompassing presence when you’re in it.” And speaking of Gettysburg’s fields and Memorials: “They show us how personal it is to our American story. And at Gettysburg we have the rare chance to enter the memory and emotion of that story.”

Dawn Waters Baker was born and raised in the Philippines as an expatriate, and only came to the United States when she was 18. This formative experience of witnessing poverty and grace has given her, in her artist’s path, a determined and searching viewpoint that does not take things for granted. Though represented at galleries in Dallas, New York, Scottsdale, and Tulsa, she takes pride in her volunteer work at ALERT, a non-profit where she coaches at-risk and trafficked girls to use art to express themselves. As well as working on new work while she is at the park, Dawn is looking forward to making a presentation or leading some painting workshops for the public during her time at the park.

Dawn will use the August 2018 residency to create artwork inspired by the open fields and woods of the Military Park. She shares with many artists of the past, like William Turner and Paul Cézanne her insight into the active ever-present mystery of nature. Comments Waters Baker, “I am interested in asking the questions of how a landscape holds the memory and emotion of war. How do the very trees, hills, fields and woods help evoke that memory and feeling? How does beauty go hand in hand with something so horrible as a Civil War? There is an awe and respect that comes with being in a place that is so deeply beautiful. I want the opportunity to be "schooled" by such a place,” and she adds, by way of summation: “…what I can bring to the park is a listening to the space.”

“Gettysburg National Military Park has offered inspiration to artists for more than 150 years,” said Christopher Gwinn, Chief of Interpretation at Gettysburg National Military Park. “The Artist-in-Residence program engages new audiences and tells Gettysburg’s stories in new and compelling ways.”

The painter will be presenting her work informally to the public during at least one public presentation, set for August 10th at 10 am at the Museum and Visitors Center, and possibly will be hosting a painting workshop at the park. Dawn Waters Baker, a gifted and perceptive landscape artist is very much on the lookout for the mysterious qualities in the landscape that may present themselves to her at America’s battlefield Park.

The Gettysburg battlefield has a long artistic tradition that includes sketches by Alfred Waud during the fighting in 1863, the iconic photography of Alexander Gardner in the immediate aftermath of battle, over a thousand memorial sculptural treasures, and commemorative works by Gutzon Borglum and many others.
NPAF is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to the promotion of the National Parks of the U.S. through creating dynamic opportunities for artworks that are based in our natural and historic heritage. This project is supported by The Gettysburg Foundation and other generous benefactors. All NPAF programs are made possible through the philanthropic support of donors of all sorts ranging from corporate sponsors, small business, and art patrons and citizen-lovers of the Parks.

Westport Big & Tall Pairs Up with TallOrder to Broaden Its Extended-Size Sock Collection

big and tall socks

CHARLOTTE, NC, UNITED STATES, July 20, 2018 / — As a retailer specializing in high-end extended size menswear and accessories, Westport Big & Tall is always searching for new products and brands that are ready to serve this segment of the apparel market. It’s not every day, however, that Westport finds a company which not only makes extended size product, but makes it their specialty as well.

TallOrder was launched in 2017 as a family venture led by two enterprising twin brothers, Dan and Mike Friedman. Growing up, they were always the tallest kids in their class, and were nicknamed the “Twin Towers.” Today they stand at 6’9” and 6’11”, and have realized just how difficult it is for larger men to find quality accessories in extended sizes. Their first objective with TallOrder was to help fill this void by providing designer socks for men with larger feet, from sizes 12-20 specifically. And as the company took off and demand for its products grew, TallOrder expanded to include regular-sized socks as well.

However, the story of TallOrder’s success isn’t complete without a story of tragic loss, grief, and the perseverance of two young boys and their family. Dan and Mike Friedman were only 11 years old when they lost their father, Andrew Friedman, in the World Trade Center attacks on September 11, 2001 in New York City. The human suffering brought forth on that day was truly senseless, and profoundly unjust to the families that were directly affected by the attacks. And for Dan and Mike, the sad irony of their childhood nickname, “the Twin Towers,” was especially difficult to reflect upon.

After they lost their father, Dan and Mike remembered feeling overwhelmed by the love and kindness that they received from their community, as well as Tuesday’s Children – an organization formed in the aftermath of 9/11 to provide support to youth, families, and communities impacted by terrorism and tragic loss. Tuesday’s Children has helped over 10,000 people affected by 9/11, including the families of victims as well as first responders and military service personnel. They have also expanded their reach to help international youth and global victims of terrorism, as well as the families affected by the recent domestic tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Since its launch in 2017, TallOrder donates 10% of its profits to Tuesday’s Children. Soon after the September 11th attacks, Dan and Mike’s family took to the streets of New York City to pass out socks to the first responders that were tending to recovery efforts. The socks were more than much-needed material support, however. The socks represented their desire to unite with the community and to do their part in helping those who needed it most, and it was what everyone needed at the time to get through the difficulties that they were faced with. It was the same type of kindness and support that Dan and Mike themselves received from Tuesday’s Children when they needed it most. All socks made by TallOrder feature a blue logo symbolizing the sky on 9/11, in memory of the loved ones lost, as well as the responsibility we all share in helping one another through tough times.

From the start, TallOrder was determined to do good for the community, but they were also determined to make a great pair of socks. Their excellent fabrics and construction make the socks comfortable, durable, and breathable. An assortment of vibrant colors, stylish patterns, and novelty prints are constructed with the help of 3D printing technology, which will allow men of all sizes to express their tastes and individual creativity. Westport Big & Tall is proud to partner with TallOrder to bring you a great pair of socks, made by a company that knows what it stands for.

Westport Big & Tall works to provide high-caliber, stylistically relevant, and aesthetically appealing menswear to big and tall customers with discerning tastes. TallOrder socks are now available for purchase on Westport Big & Tall’s website. Also visit Westport’s Facebook page, Youtube channel, and Instagram for exclusive content and behind-the-scenes footage, or read the Westport Big & Tall Blog for specialized knowledge and articles pertaining directly to dressing the big and tall gentleman.

Knight Investment Limited – Alibaba Group Takes Stake in Focus Media

Alibaba Group – Companies

Alibaba, the worlds largest retailer has announced today that it plans to take a stake in digital media advertising company, Focus Media.

HONG KONG, HONG KONG, HONG KONG, July 20, 2018 / — Alibaba Group will acquire a minority interest in China’s Focus Media Information Technology Co. Ltd., as it looks explore new models of digital marketing, the Chinese e-commerce giant said in a filing to the New York Stock Exchange.

Alibaba will pay $1.43 billion for a 6.62% share of Shanghai-based Focus Media, whose digital advertising screens can be seen on streets, in subways and in elevators across 300 Chinese cities, reaching 200 million middle-class consumers. In addition to those pre-existing shares, Alibaba said it plans to acquire another 5% interest in Focus Media within the next 12 months.

The company also will purchase a 10% stake in an entity controlled by Focus Media founder and Chairman Jason Nanchun Jiang, which controls 23.34% of Focus Media, for $504.7 million. New Retail Strategic Opportunities Fund L.P., a non-consolidated, related party of Alibaba, will acquire a 1.37% interest in Focus Media as well. The total investment, not including the expected additional 5% purchase, will be $2.23 billion, giving Alibaba a 10.32% stake.

Alibaba positioned the investment as a part of its larger New Retail strategy. New Retail integrates the best aspects of online and offline commerce to make shopping more engaging and convenient for consumers, while offering enhanced marketing tools and more-detailed consumer analytics to merchants.

The deal offers synergies with Alimama, Alibaba’s largest digital-marketing platform, Alibaba said. By partnering with Focus Media, which has set a medium-term goal of having five million terminals in 500 Chinese cities and reaching 500 million middle-class consumers, Alibaba can offer new digital channels through which the brands selling on its e-commerce platforms can connect with these consumers and their rising spending power.

Already, Alibaba is leveraging its analytics collected from its more than 500 million users to help brands better understand and reach Chinese consumers. Called “Uni Marketing,” the use of consumer data allows brands to identify, target, reach and retain their customers across Alibaba’s entire ecosystem of e-commerce and media properties. This approach to digital marketing, which offers more advanced and reliable marketing tools to brands than traditional marketing, has always been at the core of New Retail, Alibaba said.

The two companies said they would collaborate on ways to merge offline media and digital marketing, as well as help brands transition to fully digital operations. The upgrade to “New Marketing” will support the growth of New Retail across all sectors, they said.

Knight Investment see’s this as a fantastic move for Alibaba Group. The companies expansion has barely faltered over the past few years and with the Ant Financial spin off just a few months away, we have upgraded our call on BABA to strong buy.

To find out more about the opportunities Knight Investment Limited see’s with Alibaba Group, contact us at or visit our website to find out more about their services and products available.

In many instances the electrician, plumber, welder, insulator, machinist, mechanic or pipefitter could have been exposed in other states.

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Georgia include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, pulp, and paper mill workers, cotton mill workers, manufacturing workers, plumbers, welders, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, or construction workers.

AMCD Calls on Secretary Pompeo to Condemn Arrest of Christian Activists in Lebanon

The arrest of Christian activists in or from Lebanon is a targeted political move to intimidate and deter Lebanese Christian activists.

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, July 19, 2018 / — Today the American Mideast Coalition for Democracy wrote to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo urging him to condemn the arrest and interrogation of Maronite Christian activists in Lebanon and to address the matter directly with Lebanon’s Foreign Minister, Gebran Bassil, who will be attending the Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom event being held in Washington DC next week and hosted by Secretary Pompeo.

Last year (May 20, 2017), the Philos Project held a conference in New York City composed of Syriac Maronite Christians who are working to revive the ancient Aramaic language, culture, and Aramean identity. Aramaic was the common language spoken by Jesus in the First Century.

This conference, opened by Maronite bishop Gregory Mansour, included many community delegates from the US, Canada, Europe and the Middle East. It was attended by three Maronite Christian citizens of Israel, one Maronite priest and two brothers who have a program teaching Aramaic for the Maronite communities in Israel.

One of the attendees from Sweden, Roni Doumit, visited Lebanon a couple months ago. At that time, the Lebanese authorities questioned him about contacts with any citizens from what they call the “enemy state” (Israel). The authorities took the information and let him go. Last week he went back to Lebanon and was arrested and has been jailed. The formal allegation is “facilitating the connection with citizens of the enemy state.”

Another Lebanese architect, Amine Iskandar, was also called in for questioning last week. The authorities took his cell phone and asked him to come back to meet with them on July 18, 2018. After his initial questioning, he was asked to return again on July, 23. He is not sure what will happen and what kind of allegation will throw at him.

“Lebanese law forbids Lebanese citizens from visiting Israel or being in contact with Israeli authorities. It does not specifically forbid citizens from attending international conferences which happen to be attended by citizens from Israel,” explained AMCD Secretary, Rebecca Bynum. “Mr. Doumit, a joint Swedish-Lebanese citizen, and Mr. Amine Iskandar, a Lebanese citizen, belong to the Maronite community and were attending a conference organized by the Maronite community. It was chaired by a Maronite Bishop who is under the authority of the Maronite Patriarch in Lebanon, who himself has visited Jerusalem in 2014.”

“Besides,” added AMCD President, John Hajjar, “a world Maronite Conference in Rome has included dozens of Maronites living in Israel, who mingled with Maronites from Lebanon openly. Among the Maronites who attended that conference, there are many politicians who live in Lebanon. No one has questioned them for the past 18 years.”

“Even more,” he continued, “the New York Conference was attended by a number of Lebanese citizens, including an adviser to President Aoun of Lebanon, who himself met with the three Israeli citizens at the conference. And he was not questioned in Beirut. And last but not least, members of the Druze community of Israel often meet with Druze leaders from Lebanon either in Lebanon or Jordan or other parts in the Middle East, and Lebanese authorities do not bother them.”

We further observe that former Knesset member and Israeli citizen, Azmi Bishara, frequently travels to Lebanon for meetings including with officials. He was never questioned.

This and more, is evidence that the arrest of Christian activists in or from Lebanon, at the hands of the Lebanese security agencies, is a targeted political move to intimidate and deter Lebanese Christian activists who are working on reviving their language, the language of Jesus Christ, and defending the historical and cultural identity of the Lebanese Christian community. The two persons arrested, or about to be charged, have nothing to do with Lebanese-Israeli relations and are -as evidence would show- dedicating their lives to Christianity.

It is hoped that the Lebanese Foreign Minister Bassil will be confronted on this issue and asked how it is he can attend an event to advance religious freedom when his government is arresting Christians for the “crime” of meeting with other Maronite Christians from Israel? Why is it that only the Christians of Lebanon are being oppressed in this way?

AMCD implores Secretary Pompeo to demand the immediate release of Mr. Doumit and that Lebanese authorities cease their interrogation of Mr. Iskandar. AMCD further hopes that Secretary Pompeo will demand the full implementation of the UN Human Rights Declaration regarding the freedom of speech and freedom of assembly – even threatening to withhold US aid until this is achieved.

Furthermore, AMCD contacted members of congress and the appropriations committee in charge of funding for foreign aid to make sure funding will be reconsidered if this situation is not resolved immediately.

The Maronite Patriarch was also informed of the situation, as were other Lebanese politicians.
