Spotler Group becomes the largest Email Services Provider in the Netherlands


The Spotler Group, a marketing software provider, has acquired two new SaaS companies, Measuremail and Tripolis. With these two Dutch Email Services Providers (ESP), the Spotler Group will become the largest ESP in the Netherlands. The product range is further expanded with the acquisition providing the additional options of advanced and tailormade solutions. The company thus strengthens its position in a consolidating market.

Measuremail and Tripolis continue together as Tripolis

Faster innovation in a consolidating market
The acquisition of Measuremail and Tripolis Solutions is an important step in the Spotler Group’s growth strategy. Together with the companies that are already part of Spotler Group (Spotler Netherlands , Spotler UK and Flowmailer), Tripolis will work on innovative solutions in areas such as artificial intelligence (AI), data management, automation and transactional email mail communication.

Lee Chadwick, Spotler Group board member said, “We are incredibly happy to add the new Tripolis to the Spotler Group. We see that the market is consolidating and competition from international players is increasing. Through the Spotler Group we can offer a combination of high quality and innovative solutions, and the new addition gives us the opportunity to respond even better to market demands, to innovate faster and to achieve further growth.”

U.S. passes Italy for Highest Percentage of Coronavirus out of largest 25 countries.


New models of COVID-19 case data indicate the U.S. has a sharp continual increase of cases overall compared to other countries with similar population density. Of the 25 countries studied, the U.S. leads each country, bringing the U.S. to the forefront of this pandemic since its first confirmed case in January.

While the U.S. accounts for only 4% of the world’s population, the country leads with 34% (1,244,199 as of May 7) of confirmed COVID-19 cases and a 28% (78,844 as of May 7) death rate. Case-by-case studies indicate that 0.37% of Americans have been infected by the virus, this is a .02% increase from Italy, the third highest country of confirmed COVID-19 cases globally.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. has also recorded higher weekly flu deaths than 2019. Experts and data suggest the flu season, beginning in December and lasting up to May, peaked in mid-March this year. Total deaths in 2020 by Week 16 was 7,540 compared to 5,991 deaths in 2019 Week 16.

The characteristics of COVID-19 and the seasonal flu are similar with the primary difference of the incubation period. The seasonal flu incubation period is three days, while COVID-19 incubation period is five to six days. Contagion risk is increasingly higher during these timeframes, as most are asymptomatic, making COVID-19 more contagious.

Community spread accounts for the primary attribute of the U.S. high confirmed case count. Hotspot areas including New York and California continue lockdown, contact tracing and social-distancing efforts to control spread. Knowing the symptoms assist in stopping disease spread and protect high-risk communities such as immunosuppressed and the elderly.

Facts are more important than ever and there is a lot of misinformation in the world. To help with this issue Dr. Jeremy Bennett, professor at The Citadel, and Carlos Crameri, entrepreneur and CEO of Curious Check, created Facts Not Opinions where the data is not tampered with to reach a predetermined conclusion and does not have a political agenda.

BiKi.com Lists Largest Decentralized Stablecoin DAI


Singapore, Mar 23, 2020 — Community-driven exchange BiKi.com is pleased to announce that it has listed DAI, a stablecoin on the protocol MakerDAO. Known as the largest decentralized stablecoin, it is also the second largest stablecoin overall in terms of collateral value.

“BiKi is pleased to have many of the top 100 coins listed with us over the last month, and now DAI has joined too,” said Ethan Ng, Southeast Asia CEO of BiKi.com. “We are honored that such a popular project has placed their trust in us to provide exceptional listing services as we stay true to our promise of helping projects grow in top crypto markets like China, South Korea and Vietnam, through continuous branding exposure. Already a well-known project, I have no doubt in DAI’s potential to thrive and play a part in the flourishing of the DeFi ecosystem.”

This listing sees BiKi.com offering DAI trading as well as Dai Savings Rate (DSR) to its platform users. A variable rate of accrual earned by locking DAI in the DSR smart contract, DSR allows DAI holders to earn savings automatically and natively while retaining control of their DAI. With no withdrawal limits, deposit limits or liquidity constraints, users can freely enter in and out of the DSR, only needing to pay the ETH fee.

The DSR is also a monetary policy tool used as a global parameter that can be raised or lowered by Maker (MKR) on-chain governance to influence demand for the DAI token. When DSR is raised it incentivizes users to hold more DAI, creating more demand, while the opposite effect occurs when DSR is lowered. The decentralized community of MKR token holders govern the MKR Protocol, the smart contracts that power DAI.

“The inherent efficiency of the Maker Protocol and, by extension, the DeFi ecosystem, are what allow the DSR to provide great savings opportunities for people everywhere,” said Rune Christensen, CEO of MakerDAO.

“The most amazing aspects of the DSR are that it has no counterparty credit risks and it can be implemented on the backend of any DeFi product that uses Dai,” he added.

“We are excited to see BiKi Exchange offer DAI trading and DSR,” said Doo Wan Nam, MakerDAO Business Development. “We hope the integration of Dai and DSR will increase Dai use cases and awareness. Ranging from loans to games to remittance, Dai hedges users from volatility while providing financial freedom. The world’s first unbiased currency.”

Unlike most stablecoins that are fiat-backed and centralized, DAI is crypto-based and decentralized. It is also widely used and recognized, having over 550 live Dai integrations, such as that with UNICEF, and the numbers are growing. Derived from the Chinese character 貸, meaning to lend or provide capital for a loan, the original Dai (now Sai) Stablecoin System was launched in December 2017. Then in November 2019, the current Dai system was launched. The new Multi-Collateral Dai (MCD) upgrades the Single-Collateral Dai (Sai) and includes the DSR feature, allowing DAI holders everywhere to better power their journeys to financial inclusion.

Currently over USD 714 million worth of assets is locked in the system including around USD 66.5 million locked for DSR which is over 55% of total DAI. MakerDAO has received investments from top funds such as Andreessen Horowitz, Polychain and Dragonfly Capital.

MakerDAO joins the ranks of other projects like Dash, Electroneum and Matic, who were listed on the BiKi platform over the past month. Increasingly gaining the attention of popular tokens in the industry, BiKi’s listing services include continuous branding exposure, community building with key influencers as well as joint campaigns. These attractive benefits will continue to attract premium projects for listing on the community-driven exchange.

We all know that eating well and keeping fit is vital to our well-being, but it’s not always easy to make positive choices.

Hussle’s Corporate Fitness Program is launching in November, offering plenty of incentives for businesses and their employees to be their best version of themselves.

This is a great time to invest, as the company is undergoing a rapid expansion. Each month sees more than 10,000 new members discover Hussle, and the brand has already generated approximately 2.5m gym visits, while partnering with almost 40% of all the health clubs and gym facilities in the United Kingdom.

“Our mission is to create a globally trusted fitness brand that helps people make life work out,” says Hussle CEO, Jamie Ward.

For investors who relate to this ethos, becoming part of the Hussle family is quick and simple – providing them with the opportunity to join in with the brand’s success.
