Newdex Team Exclusive Interview: Make Decentralized Trading Popular

“The goal of Newdex is to open up a new era of decentralized trading, making decentralized trading accessible.”

NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 25, 2019 / — How much do you know about the first EOS based DEX in the world Newdex? Last week, Newdex team talks about building the first EOS-based Decentralized Exchange. We cover some of the highlights below. The interview was done by See the full version interview here:

What’s your background, and what are you working on?
Hello everyone! This is Newdex, the first EOS-based Decentralized Exchange. Since the Newdex team is anonymous to the outside world, there isn’t too much background introduction about the team.

Newdex is a Decentralized Exchange based on the EOS chain. It focuses on the concept of “Make decentralization popular.” Therefore, our original intention of the product is “Users’ Assets and Security First.” As long as you have an EOS account and Wallet, there is no need to register for trading.

What’s Newdex backstory?
“Newdex” = New + Decentralized Exchange. The concept of a new generation of decentralized exchanges comes from the fact that before the EOS mainnet was launched, existing-on-the-market decentralized exchanges were difficult to use.

The TPS (times per second, the number of transactions that can be processed in one second) of the Ethereum network is about 15-20, while the EOS network has reached 4,000 times per second. Therefore, the Ethereum network is often congested, and the transactions often take a long time to be confirmed by the network.

Because of the fast processing speed of EOS, the transactions are basically done in seconds. So we decided to build a Decentralized Exchange on the EOS mainnet. We started to build our team in January 2018, hiring specialists in the field and doing research about blockchain technology. And in August of last year, we finally launched Newdex on EOS mainnet.

The goal of building Newdex is to let users understand the advantages of decentralization. Order book information and assets are all stored on the EOS chain, thus avoiding the potential for the Exchange to embezzle users’ assets, and users can check all information on the EOS chain. Users welcome Newdex because of this transparency.

What went into building Newdex?

It took about half a year to create Newdex, from building the team to launching on the EOS mainnet. Since Newdex was the first Decentralized Exchange built on EOS, there is no previous reference to compare it to.
Based on our first principle, “asset security,” we have never wanted to touch users’ private keys.

Therefore, the idea of Wallets collaboration emerged. Users can sign in at Newdex through Wallet without registration, and you don’t have to top up your exchange balance before trading, Assets will be directly sent to your Wallet after the transaction is completed.

At present, Newdex has completed the development of a smart contract, “Matching and settlement on-chain,” and SlowMist has finished the security audit. Before this, Newdex’s model was “Matching off-chain, a settlement on the chain,” and order settlement and order book information were on the EOS chain.

The new model differs in that the process of order matching is made more transparent on the EOS chain by using smart contracts. However, since the smart contract is open on the public chain and everyone can see it, it has certain risks. We will first test it in trading pairs with a small transaction volume. After all, safety is our first priority.

What are your goals for the future?
The goal of Newdex is to open up a new era of decentralized trading, making decentralized trading accessible. In terms of product development, first of all, we will continue to invest and create a better user experience, aiming to become the most favored investment and financial platform for EOS users.

Furthermore, Newdex will extend the successful EOS model to TRX and other public blockchains, and further achieve multi-chain support and cross-chain trading.

Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys is pleased to give back once again by sponsoring another Game Saver Program of the Las Vegas Sportz Foundation (LVSF).

Las Vegas Sportz Foundation's dedication to protecting our youth is just one of the reasons we continue to partner with the organization.”

— Kevin Rowe, ESQ.

LAS VEGAS, NEV., UNITED STATES, June 25, 2019 / — Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys is pleased to give back once again by sponsoring another Game Saver Program of the Las Vegas Sportz Foundation (LVSF). Their summer program provides local student-athletes ages 10 to 18 with the opportunity to get a FREE pre-participation physical evaluation and heart screening for school sports. The event begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 27, 2019, at The Space (3460 Cavaretta Ct., Las Vegas, NV 89103), located off Polaris Ave., just North of Harmon Ave. Parents are required to schedule an appointment in advance, as well as ensure their child brings an athletic packet from their school to the appointment.

Because of the advanced steps taken during these pre-participation physical exam (PPE) sports screenings, physicians are able to detect general medical or physical problems in addition to any cardiac abnormalities in young athletes. Moreover, the electrocardiogram (ECG) and echocardiogram (ECHO) results, in addition to going over a qualitative exam and review of personal and family history, make these screenings much more informative than an average physical.

“LV Sportz Foundation goes above and beyond standard testing to help ensure student-athletes receive potentially life-saving exams without causing undue financial or emotional stress on families. Their dedication to protecting our youth is just one of the reasons we continue to partner with the organization,” said attorney Kevin Rowe.

Walmart ( $WMT) and Kroger-Distribution Deals In Play for Future CBD Markets? ( $HIPH) ( $BKIT) ( $NBEV) ( $LRSV) releases a snapshot reporting on the recent rush of large scale distribution deals surrounding new CBD products.

American Premium Water Corporation (OTCMKTS:HIPH)

POINT ROBERTS, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, June 25, 2019 / —, a leading investor news resource covering hemp and cannabis stocks releases a snapshot reporting on the recent rush of large scale distribution deals surrounding new CBD products.

Companies featured include American Premium Water Corporation (OTC: HIPH), BioHemp International, Inc. (OTC: BKIT), New Age Beverages Corporation (quote) and LinkResPet (OTC: LRSV).

Read the full article on

A recent CNBC article commented on how Kroger, the nation’s largest grocery retailer, recently announced that they “will now sell hemp-derived CBD topical products, including creams, balms and oils, in 945 stores, across 17 states”, a Company Spokeswoman said in a statement to CNBC on Tuesday. The grocery chain joins a growing list of national retailers, including Walgreens, CVS, Vitamin Shoppe and GNC, that are beginning to stock shelves with the cannabis compound.

“Like many retailers, we are starting to offer our customers a highly-curated selection of topical products like lotions, balms, oils and creams that are infused with hemp-derived CBD,” the Kroger Spokeswoman said.

This brings us to American Premium Water Corporation (OTC: HIPH) who recently announced that distribution of Canyon Create’s varicose vein cosmetic treatment, Vanexxe, is now available for sale on

American Premium CEO, Ryan Fishoff commented, “We are pleased that our partner Canyon Create’s Vanexxe is on! This is a huge accomplishment for them and great exposure for the product, which we anticipate will benefit our Company’s marketing. Vanexxe is a revolutionary product that is entering the marketplace unchallenged; there is nothing like it that cosmetically addresses painful and unsightly varicose veins. Both Canyon and American Premium Water view this as just the first of a multi-tier, multi-national rollout strategy for the product.”

According to Canyon, Vanexxe uses a proprietary formulation to eliminate the appearance of varicose veins.

Mr. Fishoff stated, “Our licensing arrangement with Canyon Create is the first of what I believe to be many positive developments. The Company is going to continue to push distribution in other channels and is negotiating to bring to market other products that Canyon currently has in development. We are continuing to focus on expanding distribution and having a diverse portfolio of products provides us more ammunition when going to big box retailers. The strategy of making acquisitions with unique technology is generating benefits for the company, and in turn, could continue to propel shareholder value. The Company is simultaneously working on many strategic initiatives. We are also in discussions about other potential distribution deals across multiple product categories with other retailers, and I look forward to providing updates to investors when appropriate. When all is said and done, I hope we can carve out our own path and create a value that is second to none.”

Ludlow Research updated its opinion on American Premium Water Corporation, maintaining its short-term speculative target of $05 to $0.06 per share, based on a distribution deal with Walmart

BioHemp International, Inc. (OTC: BKIT), is also looking to the future of their CBD distribution having announced that it has appointed American Premium Water Corporation’s Chief Executive Officer, Ryan Fishoff as Lead Advisor to the Company. Mr. Fishoff will assist Company CEO, Daniel Blum with M&A Strategy and CBD industry knowledge as the Company begins its consolidation rollup strategy.

Not only is there about to be a variety of CBD products offered for humans, but soon even our pets will have options as LinkResPet (OTC: LRSV), a UK based CBD provider, recently announced partnering with American Premium Water Corporation (OTC: HIPH) to work on a new CBD water pet product, LYNKS CBD Pet Water. The beverage is infused with LinkResPet’s CBD formula and created with American Premium’s nano-technology, which allows greater absorption of CBD into the system will provide a new way for owners to treat their pets. Expected to launch in Q3 2019, LYNKS CBD Pet Water is the first product of its kind tailored for pets.

As more and more consumers globally demand access to regulated (primarily tested and quality controlled) CBD products we can expect to see more large retailers support some brand of CBD products on their shelves as well as online. The only questions remaining are which brands will stand out to consumers and which retailers will be the last to jump onboard the CBD craze.

Sahara Group canvasses more investment in Africa’s E&P business

Managing Director, Asharami Energy (A Sahara Group Upstream Company), Olajumoke Ajayi, Director, EMEA, Oil and Gas Council, Pippa Brown and Head, Commercial and Business Development, Asharami Energy, Mariah Luciano-Gabriel

Oil and Gas businesses in Africa need to intensify exploration efforts to guarantee reserve replacement and enhanced capacity to meet growing demand

Sahara Group’s exploration success story is being driven by a combination of technology, innovation and community management expertise”

— Olajumoke Ajayi, Managing Director, Asharami Energy

PARIS, FRANCE, June 25, 2019 / — Oil and Gas businesses in Africa need to intensify exploration efforts to guarantee reserve replacement and enhanced capacity to meet growing demand and global competition, Olajumoke Ajayi, Managing Director, Asharami Energy (A Sahara Group Upstream Company), has told participants at the Oil and Gas Council’s Africa Assembly in Paris.

Ajayi noted that Africa’s large volumes of undiscovered oil and gas make the continent a veritable frontier for investment, adding that operators need to adopt new technology, explore alternative cost saving measures, ensure sustainable community relations, and build diverse multidisciplinary teams to ensure successful exploration projects.

In her presentation, “Renewing Players Commitment to Exploration and the Importance of Community Engagement in Capital Intensive Projects”, Ajayi cited the downturn in global oil prices and the corresponding negative effect on investor funds and returns as factors that have made a good number of Exploration and Production (E&P) companies in Africa cut down on investments, delay Final Investment Decision (FID) or totally stop embarking on new capital projects.

“Consequently, producing companies continue to pump oil from operated mature fields thereby depleting existing reserves with non-corresponding efforts for reserve replacement via new exploration discoveries. The big question remains whether or not E&P players should commit to exploration and how players can justify this commitment in the face of lower oil prices,” she stated.

According to Ajayi, the compelling case for the relevance of hydrocarbons in the future, in addition to huge investments on new technology, responsible and intentional community engagement will play a significant role in creating a stable and conducive environment for exploration and production. “Sahara Group’s exploration success story is being driven by a combination of technology, innovation and community management expertise. At Sahara, we are intentionally committed to creating a sustainable balance between our projects and host communities to ensure the creation of shared value for all stakeholders.”

Going by the PwC Oil and Gas Review 2018, proven oil reserves in Africa have stayed at the same level of 7.5% of global reserves. The report also notes that exploration activity continued to decline in 2017. “The consequences of modest recovery in exploration spending and a continued decline in new discoveries are unavoidable and imminent. The International Energy Agency and various players in the oil industry have warned of demand exceeding supply as oil demand continues to grow and investment in projects is deferred,” the report stated. The report adds that Africa’s oil and gas consumption is predicted to increase by 45%, increasing its global share 5.1% by 2050.

Ajayi said strategic community engagements eliminate community interference in operations of capital projects that may lead to significant downtime; ensure that the host community understands its role as a project stakeholder and treats projects as commonwealth source for the people; reduce security breach as community representatives serves as infrastructure surveillance outfit; and promoting easy negotiations for Freedom To Operate (FTO) and Global Memorandum of Understanding (GMOU).
