 WAX is the next big thing in the cryptocurrency market. A P2P marketplace trading in virtual assets. WAX was built on the foundation of decentralized and blockchain smart contracts allowing the sellers and buyers to trade their virtual goods efficiently. It has come with an answer for two big concerns in the virtual asset market: Fraud is one and fragmentation is the other. The able creators of OPSkins are launching WAX. OPSkins is already leading in the global market in the sale of in-game virtual assets. Malcolm Casselle is the CIO behind this leading bitcoin merchant in the world today. OPSkins leaders in virtual asset marketplace is a centralized platform. It has therefore encountered some challenges in line with technology hence giving room for the creation of a decentralization marketplace for the virtual assets.

Going into the first issue being sorted by WAX, there is need to unite the fragmented virtual asset market. The fragmentation existed due to the different payment processing concerns, security, and language matters. The WAX token is the incoming application for blockchain to the eSports that will solve the fragmentation issue. It will create a market with no limitations hence giving chance to the buyers and sellers to tokenize and make the sale of their assets without fears. The platform for WAX gives room for the users to tokenize gaming assets and then immediately buy or sell these assets to prospective buyers. This will cut off all the limitations in the virtual asset marketplace. Moving on, this will solve the issue of location fragmentation. The WAX token is a common form of currency for all the users and hence it will eliminate the issues relating to FOREX. The other challenge of ending is the fraud. Security will be improved because there will be no intermediaries in the trading platforms.

Malcolm Casselle is the CIO of OPSkins and current president of the upcoming Worldwide Asset eXchange, WAX. Malcolm has served in other companies before his current positions and that has contributed to the tremendous skills he has acquired over time. He has helped companies to startup in business some of which have risen to incredible heights in the technological world.

Ted Bauman Offers Solid Advice To Investors Who Are Looking To Protect Physical Assets

Ted Bauman is a writer and editor with Banyan Hill Publishing, and he has been focusing on low-risk investments in the recent years. He believes that a society functions best when all of its citizens are taken care of; regardless of their economical standing. Bauman emigrated to South Africa when he was younger after being born in Washington D.C. He studied at the University of Cape Town in South Africa earning, both, his postgraduate degrees in history and economics. He traveled all over the world while working Habitat for Humanity and helped to build Slum Dwellers International, which helps over 14 million people all around the globe. Check this article at to learn more.

Ted Bauman wants investors to focus on what’s important, and he is sure that storing assets away that can’t be touched by any financial institution is important. The problem with keeping these assets at home is that they can be stolen or lost during a natural disaster. One of the best places to keep these kinds of assets in in a lockbox or home safe. Customized safes are the best bet as they can be bolted down, but Ted Bauman advises people to go one step further and not keep assets at their home, period. At minimum, he advises that an investor should split them up so some are at home and some are elsewhere. A safe-deposit box at a bank is a better resting place for these assets, but these come with issues, too. Getting a safe-deposit box at a foreign bank helps to avoid government confiscations or other issues.

Ted Bauman has another option that might be even better, and this is to pay for an independent storage vault that is not with any financial institution. A bonus of these is that the government does not regulate them and is not entitled to any information about the people who hold them. The government can access this information when people put their assets into safe-deposit boxes at a bank. Bauman says another option is to store them in an independent vault in a foreign country, which is extremely discreet. Many of these do not have any IRS requirements and they aren’t regulated by the government. Some companies will even build a customized vault for investors who want to have one in a foreign country. Ted Bauman suggests that investors should consider looking getting a vault in New Zealand where an account can be opened up remotely. Visit:


Rewards Are Important For Employees According To Paul Herdsman

There is a difference between a company that is great to work for and a job that people just use to get by. The difference is summed up in some of the advice that Co-Founder and COO of NICE Global; Paul Herdsman gives. One piece of advice he gives for employers is to reward their employees for doing well. A lot of employees work with the mindset that paying them every week or so is reward enough for doing a good job. The only thing is that employees are paid for the hours they are on the clock. The pay is the same no matter how hard they work. Therefore, they might just do enough work to keep their job if they don’t feel there is a reason to work harder.


Paul Herdsman states that while people can just look busy on the clock, it isn’t fair to the workers that take their job seriously or the company as a whole. This is one of the reasons that he encourages employers to reward people. However, a lot of employers may not know how to set up an award system. Fortunately, they can get ideas on setting up an award system in order to motivate their employees to work harder. Go Here to learn more.


Some employers just resort to a penalty system for employees that are performing below standards. While this can be effective for some employees, there are employees that are more reward based. Therefore, it is important to have both set up so that employees can have that extra motivation. The only thing that employers have to do is find out the best type of indicator for performance. The best thing to do according to Paul Herdsman is to use a reward system that is designed to guide employees to actions that move the company forward as a whole.

     In March of this year, Ocavio Lazari became the new CEO of Brazil’s Bradesco Bank. Lazari began working for Bradesco in 1978 while still a teenager. age 54, has been serving as the president of Bradesco Seguros, the bank’s insurance branch. His predecessor, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, had also served as the president of Bradesco Seguros prior to becoming the bank’s CEO. In this top position, he is considered not only the greatest leader of Bradesco in its entire history but one of the best Brazilian business leaders ever.

Trabuco helped Bradesco rise to an average annual revenue of $70 billion. During the search for a new CEO, Octavio and the bank’s other six vice presidents were under consideration, with three of those in the decided lead having all three been with the company more than 20 years. The vice presidents had not been the only company leaders considered, however. Also under consideration were investor relations director, Alexandre Gluher; retail head, Josué Pancini; and IT executive Mauricio Minas. While Trabuco is vacating the CEO position, Trabuco has assumed the presidency of the company’s board of directors.

Bradesco was originally founded in the 1940s. For many years after that, it was the biggest bank in Brazil. That changed in 2009 after Banco Itau and Unibanco merged. Today it remains headquartered in Sao Paulo, operating 5,314 branches and 4,834 service branches. It also stands as the third largest bank in Brazil. Its services include Banking, insurance, pension plans, annuities, credit cards, and savings bonds. Bradesco’s reach is international with a branch in New York, two in Grand Cayman, and subsidiaries in London, Luxembourg, Hong Kong, Buenos Aires, Tokyo and Mexico.

Morgan Fleming Asset Management, and American Express HSBC Brasil. Bradesco stock is listed on both the New York Stock Exchange and Madrid Stock Exchange.

Bernardo Chua Turns His Concern for Human Health Into a Multi-National Company

As a boy growing up in the Philipines Bernardo Chua was concerned with the welfare of others. His original ambition was to be a medical doctor. He graduated from the University of Santo Thomas with a Bachelor of Science Degree, but never pursued an MD. Read more about Bernardo Chua on CajaMediterraneo

It wasn’t that he had lost interest in improving the health of others. Bernardo found another way to help people live healthier lives. Ten years ago he founded the direct sales company Organo Gold.

The Organo Gold product line consists of nutraceuticals. Nutraceuticals are foods made with an additive or additives that have medicinal qualities. The beneficial additive in the teas, coffees, and personal care products sold by Organo Gold is Ganoderma a variety of mushroom that grows around the world.

Having grown-up in South East Asia Bernardo Chua was familiar with the healthful attributes of Ganoderma. A natural antioxidant Gandoderma can guard against nine serious health threats including cancer, liver disease, and high cholesterol. The Ganoderma mushroom has been a staple in traditional Asian medicine for centuries.

Most businessmen would prefer to set-up shop in a country with little or no regulatory laws. I personally was impressed to learn that Bernardo established Organo Gold in Canada because of its strict regulations governing the food industry. He realized that having to comply with strict product laws would give consumers an added sense of security when purchasing products from OG.

As mentioned earlier part of Organo Gold’s business model is direct sales. Instead of retailing their product through brick-and-mortar retailers direct sales is akin to the door-to-door salesmen of yore. Distributors might use catalogs or host Organo Gold parties in their home. By using the direct sales model Bernardo Chua created business opportunities for distributors in almost three dozen countries.

In 2014 during the Dangal ng Bayan Awards ceremony in Manila Organo Gold was honored with multiple awards. The company was recognized as “Best Gourmet Organic Health Coffee” and “Number One Global Nework Marketing Company”. Consumers choose the recipient of both those honors. Bernardo himself garnered the “Outstanding Global Entrepreneur” award. Visit:

Bradesco was founded in 1943 and have always strived to be an innovative bank to its customers. Bradesco was the first bank to introduce credit cards in Brazil, they also have a history of providing services that may not be profitable but makes the lives of their customers better. With such an outlook, it is no surprise that employees at Bradesco choose to spend their entire lives in the organization. It was reported that the in the last financial year, 30% of Bradesco’s business was from insurance, showing the trust in the bank by its customers.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco joined the organization straight after his undergraduate graduation from the University of Sao Paulo, majoring in Philosophy, Science, and Letters. To further his career prospects, he later took a masters degree in Socio-Psychology. His dedication to the company has seen the now 66-year-old rise from a low ranking employee to sit at the highest position of the company, becoming Chairman of the Board at Bradesco.

Felipe Montoro Jens Reports on the IDB

In a recent article posted on, Felipe Montoro Jens details what occurred in a special meeting between the Governors of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). The main point of discussion between the members was the necessity to increase Brazil’s private investments in infrastructure. Dyogo Oliveira, the Minister of Planning, Development, and Management voiced his desire to increase the number of private projects. He mentioned that the IDB should be focused on promoting studies that point to more efficient solutions for project risk management and facilitate private investments in the region. Luis Caputo, Argentina’s finance minister, agreed with Oliveira. Caputo stated that the need for new investments and the support of the IDB is necessary. Follow Felipe on Twitter

According to Felipe Montoro Jens, the President of the IDB, Luis Alberto Moreno, believes that investments are below what is necessary. The region will not be able to develop properly and overcome obstacles to grow without new investments. In the past the IDB has adapted to the new social demands. By adapting policies to reinforce environmental sustainability and gender equality, the execution of projects has become easier to fulfill. The Governors of the Inter-American Development Bank agreed that they will have to consider more social demands if they wish to increase Brazil’s private investments in infrastructure.

In his report, Felipe Montoro Jens emphasizes that the actions of the Inter-American Development Bank and its Governors in the fields of financing and infrastructure development are aligned with the best practices of South American counties. While Brazil has recently made several Public-Private Partnerships, they need to do more to stay ahead of the curve. Luckily, there have been over 1,000 infrastructure Public-Private Partnership projects created within the last decade. Combined these projects have been valued at more that $360 billion. Though, there have also been many projects are unable to mobilize enough private capital to be finished. This needs to change in the future. In 2017 Brazil’s Minister of Planning, Development, and Management told Felipe Montoro Jens that IDB loans to Brazil totaled approximately $13 billion. That is a whopping 20% increase in the IDB’s loan amount from 2016. Visit:


Matt Badiali: A Diamond in the Ruff

Recap of Article 1 (

According to an article published on, Matt Badiali is one of Banyan Hill’s expert investment advisors. To me, this means people respect his judgement, and his future plans with regards to where they may or may NOT invest their money. The article also goes on to say that he has studied geology extensively in an academic capacity, and his travels abroad were not simply for pleasure. He uses the things he has learned from traveling, and his knowledge about geology to create a unique fusion… Geology, and investing. also states that he has worked as an analyst/geologist for Stansberry Research in 2005.

Because of his knowledge about geology claims he is a valuable resource advisor for metals, and other natural resources. Matt Badiali had offered very precious information about the rising cost of oil according to the article. Although contemporaries, and competition alike were against his views about the rising cost of oil in the years to come, they are beginning to think differently. I think they will take his opinion much more seriously in the future. As it turns out his predictions are beginning to come true… Read more at to know more.

Recap of Article 2 (

According to an article published on,Matt Badiali Believes Oil Prices Could Exceed $100 a Barrel in the Near Term. He has studied trends of cultures, and civilizations, and I think that his understanding of the way oil is being exported out of specific areas of the world will help investors to make better decisions. If anything, learning about why one is investing a certain way is very important. This article published on is a good place to look at what is happening with oil. They explore wide varieties of outcomes, and talk about geo-political stances affecting the way investors should react. The most shocking and revelatory sentence I found was said by Matt Badiali himself… His quote… “A high proportion of Saudi Arabia’s oil exports move through the Bab al-Mandeb Strait, and the rebels may be able to hit oil tankers traversing through this bottleneck. If Yemen’s conflict escalates to new levels, Riyadh’s reduced ability to export oil could lead to a major surge in oil prices. Is he justified in his beliefs about oil? It is up to the investor to decide.
