UXLINK Social Infrastructure Breaks New Records, Attracts 230,000 New OKX Wallet Registrations in 14 Days, 72% Deposit Rate

SINGAPORE – Media OutReach Newswire – 21 February 2024 – From February 2nd to February 16th, UXLINK, a Web3 social infrastructure with a unique “Real World Social” and “group” model, launched a two-week joint campaign with OKX Web3 wallet, and it was reported that in the two weeks since the campaign went live, more than 230,000 OKX Web3 wallet addresses have been created and linked to UXLINK. These wallets have a token asset deposition rate of over 70%, with an average asset value of over $70 USD equivalent in tokens, totaling $11 million. The user base is truly global, spread across more than 100 countries and regions, including Vietnam, Indonesia, Nigeria, Europe, and the Middle East. The campaign saw a 42% new registration/UV ratio, reflecting the fact that real world social relationships and group interactions of acquaintances bring trust and efficiency.

UXLINK Protocol enables any decentralized applications (DApps) to use a wide range of on-chain and off-chain social resources, such as user’s social account information, user’s social relationship graph, user’s social tags, social relationship recommendation and so on, which can accelerate the development of DApps, achieve cross-chain functionality and coordinate the social data of different scenarios. These social resources can accelerate the development of DApps, realize cross-chain functions and coordinate social data in different scenarios, so that DApps can better achieve their business goals and provide better user experience for their users.

UXLINK has officially opened the third phase of its “Odyssey” airdrop task, with multi-wallet registration, binding and check-in functions, and inviting friends to participate in the event can get additional token rewards. It is reported that the number of participants in the Odyssey has exceeded 40,000, and will officially open the $UXLINK governance token airdrop in March.

As of press time, UXLINK’s certified users have exceeded 3 million, entering more than 74,000 groups, covering around 6 million users, becoming a new generation of Web3 traffic and protocol-based infrastructure. According to UXLINK community, UXLINK will open up protocols and work with more developers and ecological partners in the future, and continue to provide Web3 infrastructure services for different social scenarios (e.g., WhatsApps, Facebook, mailbox contacts, cell phone contacts, Google contacts, etc.).

Axi Select hailed as the future of prop trading as multiple demo account firms close doors due to pressures from regulators, brokers, and tech providers

Axi Select hailed as the future of prop trading as multiple demo account firms close doors due to pressures from regulators, brokers, and tech providers

SYDNEY, Australia, Feb. 20, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Bucking the trend of recent negative developments in the prop firm industry, leading global CFD and FX broker Axi, which launched Axi Select – their unique capital allocation programme for talented traders – has been hailed by many industry experts as the future of the industry.

Recent issues experienced in the prop trading industry have resulted in multiple firms having to pause or close down their service due to pressure from regulators, partner brokers or tech providers.

Axi Select is completely different to the industry, and as a result has legitimised the prop firm model by offering a live trading account programme, with real controls in terms of execution, transparency, and fair market conditions. Since its launch in mid-2023, Axi Select has witnessed an incredible 40% month-on-month increase in the number of active clients on their platforms.

Axi believes their Select programme is revolutionary, sustainable and is the future of the prop firm model. Greg Rubin, Head of Axi Select, stated “In the last week the prop trading industry has been turned on its head completely with multiple firms having to suspend their services due to external pressures.

“We foresaw this, which is why we’ve developed a capital allocation programme which is built on our live trading account model and has been available in over 100 countries for more than 16 years. This has given us the confidence that Axi Select is a long-term solution to the prop trading community, and not subject to the issues now faced by prop firms who offer the demo account registration fee model and are under constant pressure from regulators and their tech partners.”

He continued “We genuinely empathise with the thousands of talented traders who will now be denied access to their allocated funds, and we encourage anyone using the demo trading registration model to question whether their prop firm partner will be able to continue as an ongoing concern given recent events. Unfortunately, this could be the beginning of the end for the demo account prop firm model.”

Axi Select offers a very attractive funding model – $1 million USD top allocation and clients can keep up to 90% of their profits – that’s one of the top allocation offerings worldwide, from an award-winning globally recognised, respected, and trusted broker.

By joining Axi you don’t need to pay a registration fee. Yes, you need to fund your trading account, but that money is yours to withdraw at any time and any profits you make on your funded account, you keep in addition to funds allocated by Axi.

“We believe passionately that Axi Select is the best allocation programme globally” said Rajesh Yohannan, Group CEO of Axi.

“By using a live trading account, with real money and the emotions that accompany this, we believe you are more likely to be profitable longer term and make money from your own live account as well as the funded proportion. Our Axi Select account has all the controls we offer to our live account holders globally. This includes access to our award-winning fast, transparent, and fair-trade execution.”

He added “If you are a talented trader and are looking for a legitimate funding programme which is designed to truly help you succeed and profit from the financial markets, and you want the stability of an account model which has been in market for 16 years, then Axi Select is the place for you to find your Edge.”

Italy’s dedication to Lebanon has deep roots, spanning nearly four decades back to the early 1980s. During this time, Italy deployed its troops to South Lebanon, joining UNIFIL forces in peacekeeping endeavors.

In 2015, the Italian bilateral military mission in Lebanon (MIBIL) was established as part of the broader initiatives supported by the “International Support Group” (ISG). The ISG includes not only the member countries of the permanent council of the United Nations but also Germany, Italy, and the EU.

The mission, operating within this framework, has been unwavering in its efforts to assist both the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) and the civilian population. Its primary task is to organize and conduct training and consultancy activities for the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF).

In this context, the National News Agency (NNA) conducted an exclusive interview with Colonel Sandro Iervolino, the commander of MIBIL. He highlighted that “MIBIL’s activities in cooperation with the LAF primarily focus on supporting
education and training for the armed forces.” The aim is to identify potential gaps in training and address critical issues through the organization of specialized courses by MIBIL.

When discussing potential training gaps, Colonel Iervolino outlined strategies to overcome these challenges. He explained, “Our mission involves organizing specific courses, particularly in the areas of CBRN, healthcare, personal defense, sniping, and the execution of operations in urban, mountain, and maritime environments.”

Moreover, Iervolino affirmed that “MIBIL’s main goal is to offer support to the Lebanese armed forces, which we see as a credible and resilient institution capable of providing effective assistance in Lebanon, especially during the current crisis.”

When asked about the activities carried out to date, the MIBIL commander disclosed that “since 2015, MIBIL has organized over 300 courses, benefiting more than 7,000 participants. Additionally, since 2023, MIBIL has engaged in civil-military cooperation, conclud
ing 44 projects in the fields of education, healthcare, and agriculture in the past year.”

He emphasized that, amidst challenging circumstances, “the mission delivers healthcare aided by the deployment of two medical teams at the military hospital in Beirut.”

Reflecting on his experience in Lebanon, Iervolino stated, “Six months into my role as the head of MIBIL, I can confidently say that our cooperation with the LAF is excellent on all fronts. Relations are genuinely friendly and collaborative, marked by a profound respect for the Italian staff.” He expressed gratitude to his predecessors for their outstanding work and the credibility they established over the years.

Iervolino then delved into the MIBIL work process. He explained, “After each training activity, our teams, working alongside Lebanese units, identify the necessary materials to enhance the operational and logistical capabilities of the LAF.” He clarified that “this information is shared with the Italian Ministry of Defense, allowing it to be
incorporated into projects funded by Italy to enhance the capabilities of partner countries’ armed forces.”

Iervolino emphasized that “the donations primarily involve specialized equipment, vehicles, and projects of great importance for the LAF.”

In terms of cooperation with UNIFIL, he clarified, “MIBIL primarily operates in the central area of the country, thus its role differs from that of UNIFIL’s responsibility.”

He affirmed that “currently, there is no evaluated option for collaboration with forces deployed south of the Litani under UN jurisdiction.”

When asked about his assessment of the current situation of the LAF, the MIBIL commander acknowledged the challenges and resilience in line with Lebanon’s economic situation.

He expressed optimism, stating, “Despite the difficulties, we are all impressed by the LAF’s high level of professionalism and anticipate further improvements in the near future.”

Regarding future activities, especially in the near future, Iervolino emphasized the ongoing commitme
nt of the Italian armed forces and MIBIL, even after October 7. He assured that this commitment will persist with the same intensity in the coming months. Looking ahead to 2024, he disclosed, “The training provided by MIBIL will increase by 15%, and we are already working on the training plan for 2025.”

In delivering a message to the Lebanese people and LAF elements, Iervolino expressed, ‘I would like to send a message of hope to the Lebanese despite the serious crisis that the entire Middle East region is going through. I want to tell them that they can continue to place the utmost trust in the LAF.’ Additionally, he reiterated support to his friends and the elements of the FAL, emphasizing the pride they feel in cooperating alongside them. He concluded by confirming their ongoing closeness and collaboration.
