OK Jumpstart Set to Launch 2nd Token Sale for ALLIVE (ALV) Next Week

A Smart Health Era with Blockchain and AI Technology Application

ALLIVE is an “intelligent healthcare ecosystem based on blockchain technology”, which aim to provide standardized formats for health data integration, support high user concurrency, protect data privacy via decentralized, encrypted storage and support extension compatibility. The ALLIVE team has partnered with Ontology since August 2018, in order to facilitate inter-business collaboration and data sharing. Such partnership aims to develop a decentralized healthcare ecosystem and a smart blockchain network.

“As always, OK Jumpstart weighs at the potential of each supporting projects and ALLIVE simply captures the essences of blockchain technology by applying it to new use cases. It sets a good example in demonstrating how the technology can transform healthcare procedures and improve our lives, such as making electronic medical records more readily available for doctors to access without sacrificing the security of our personal data,” said Andy Cheung, Head of Operations of OKEx. “We have experienced tremendous growth blockchain technology brings to our financial system, but the power of blockchain is limitless. We can also use it to establish a sustainable smart health community to enhance the healthcare ecosystem, so it can be more accessible and more affordable for everyone. ”

In general, the aging population faces greater prevalence of chronic diseases or new diseases, and costly medical solutions or targeted treatments might not be an affordable option for everyone.

With the ever-rising healthcare cost, adopting blockchain technology can effectively minimize the struggle of managing medical and financial challenges. Furthermore, continuous efforts can build a sustainable foundation for an affordable, accessible, high-quality healthcare ecosystem in the near future.

OK Jumpstart Enhanced Token Sale Rules

As announced in the previous token sale, OKEx has adopted a few changes in order to allow more users to participate.

The subscription-allotment process will remain, with OKB as the only accepted token for subscription and settlement. There will be two subscription sessions.

Interested participants are required to hold a minimum of 500 OKB on 15-day average in order to be eligible to participate in the token sale. Snapshot of each account will be taken daily at a random time. The more OKB one holds, the greater the allotment will be rewarded. (Tips: holding ≥ 2,500 OKB for 15-day on average can achieve the maximum allotment coefficient.)

1st Session: Over-Subscription Limit

Session time limit is 10 minutes. However, the session might end early once the over-subscription limit is reached.

(NEW) 2nd Session: NO Over-Subscription Limit

Session time limit is 10 minutes. Users who subscribe successfully within this time frame will be eligible for the subscription.

Allotment calculation and subscription result will be announced after each session ends. The token allocation for the 1st and 2nd sessions will be disclosed in each round’s token sale announcement.

Please stay tuned to OKEx’s Twitter and OK Jumpstart for latest updates.

EWTN To Launch African News Agency

ROME, May 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — (EWTN) – EWTN Global Catholic Network announced May 10 that it will launch a news service for the African continent. ACI-Africa will be a Nairobi, Kenya-based Catholic news agency, which will publish content in English, French and Portuguese. EWTN Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Warsaw formally introduced the project during an event at EWTN’s Vatican bureau. The news agency will officially begin operations on August 15, the Solemnity of the Assumption, the same date on which EWTN Founder Mother Angelica launched EWTN in 1981.

EWTN Global Catholic Network announced May 10 that it will launch a news service for the African continent. ACI-Africa will be a Nairobi, Kenya-based Catholic news agency, which will publish content in English, French and Portuguese. ACI-Africa will be headed by Father Don Bosco Onyalla, a priest of the Diocese of Rumbek in South Sudan.

“I am pleased to announce that EWTN will soon be launching a news agency which will cover the Church across the continent of Africa,” Warsaw said. “The Church in Africa is vibrant and continues to see exponential growth. My hope is that this new service from EWTN will help continue to build up the African Church and also ensure that the voice of the African Church is heard more clearly around the world with content that is shared through EWTN’s other news platforms.”

The Association for Catholic Information in Africa (ACI-Africa) will be headed by Father Don Bosco Onyalla, a priest of the Diocese of Rumbek in South Sudan. He is a journalist who established and previously oversaw the Catholic News Agency For Africa (CANAA), a project of the African bishops conference since May 2013. Onyalla’s work has included producing websites, newsletters and social media updates for the bishops, as well as working with diocesan, national and regional episcopal communication directors throughout Africa. He speaks English, French, and Swahili, as well as the local languages of Luhya and Dinka.

“I look forward to interacting with fellow Catholic journalists under the EWTN umbrella, to facilitating the telling of Africa’s story by Africans, and to the challenges involved in setting up a news agency in the vast and multi-cultural context that is Africa,” Onyalla said.

ACI-Africa will be a part the ACI Group which was acquired by EWTN in 2014 and includes ACI Prensa, the world’s largest Spanish-language Catholic news organization with headquarters in Lima, Peru; ACI Digital, the Rio de Janeiro, Brazil-based news organization, which serves the Portuguese-speaking world; and ACI Stampa, the Italian-language news organization based in Rome. ACI Group is part of the larger EWTN News, Inc. division, which also includes Denver-based Catholic News Agency (CNA), the German language news service, CNA Deutsch, and several other Catholic news outlets.

EWTN Global Catholic Network

“We were honored to welcome Vatican officials, journalists, and distinguished guests to our event announcing the birth of ACI-Africa,” said Alejandro Bermudez, Executive Director of the ACI Group. “This new Agency aimed at covering all Africa for Africa and the world is an expression of the growing role African Catholicism is having in the universal Church. This is a significant step forward for the ACI Group as well as for the larger EWTN News family.”

The launch of ACI-Africa is the latest development in EWTN’s efforts to continue to expand its news presence in the global Catholic digital and multimedia marketplace. In 2013, the Network launched “EWTN News Nightly,” a daily news program from Washington, D.C. covering news and world events from a Catholic perspective. In 2011, EWTN acquired “The National Catholic Register,” the leading Catholic newspaper in the United States. In addition, EWTN’s radio and digital media services have greatly expanded their news content in recent years.

EWTN Global Catholic Network, in its 38th year, is the largest religious media network in the world. EWTN’s 11 global TV channels are broadcast in multiple languages 24 hours a day, seven days a week to over 300 million television households in more than 145 countries and territories. EWTN platforms also include radio services transmitted through SIRIUS/XM, iHeart Radio, and over 500 domestic and international AM & FM radio affiliates; a worldwide shortwave radio service; one of the largest Catholic websites in the U.S.; electronic and print news services, including Catholic News Agency, “The National Catholic Register” newspaper, and several global news wire services; as well as EWTN Publishing, its book publishing division.
