APPlife Digital Solutions Inc. (OTC: ALDS) Reaches Signs Exclusive U.S. Distribution Agreement

TopNewsGuide - Market News & Commentary

The business incubation industry has grown at a breakneck pace over the course of the past decade or so and hence, it is only natural for investors to now take a keener interest in the industry. Some listed companies in the space have attracted attention recently, and one of those is APPlife Digital Solutions Inc (OTCMKTS:ALDS). The company is involved in the business incubation and portfolio management space. Its operations are based out of offices in Shanghai, China, and San Francisco, California. The company is mainly involved in the creation and investment in cloud-based and e-commerce solutions. Some of the solutions that APPlife Digital creates could be deployed at home, recreation, and work. It also puts in the right amount of research so as to make its users more productive and efficient. The company made a major new announcement last week on February 24 with regards to ROOSTERS ESSENTIALS, its grooming products e-commerce platform. It was announced that ROOSTERS ESSENTIALS had managed to ink an exclusive reseller agreement for online sales in the United States with GROUPE KANDY Inc. GROUPE KANDY is a Canadian LED skincare, and anti-aging firm that offers a clinical-grade device that works on reversing the signs of aging. It was announced that the potentially revolutionary Kandyway Eternal Glow Therapy Mask would be made available to customers on the ROOSTERS ESSENTIALS e-commerce shop at some point in the coming two weeks. The Chief Executive Officer of APPlife Digital Matthew Reid spoke about the industry as well. He noted that there was not a higher demand for anti-aging products which was rooted in the more positive attitude that people now had toward the process of aging. He went on to add that the company was pleased to work with a company like GROUPE KANDY which is known for developing effective products in the particular space. It will help ROSSTERS ESSENTIALS in building a stronger community for its users and on top of that, the higher price point of the product would also help with the company’s revenues. The company made another significant announcement last year on November 30. The company announced at the time that it was focused on diversifying its businesses and growing revenues through a focus on mergers and acquisitions. At the time, Matthew Reid noted that for most of 2022, the company had been involved in identifying mergers and acquisition targets. He added that since the company was involved in the cloud and e-commerce industries, the scope for acquisitions was much wider and it could be possible for APPlife Digital to cast a much wider net. He also stated that the number of targets had been narrowed down and at the time APPlife Digital was in talks with a decision-maker at one of the target companies. Reid added that there were other reasons as well why he felt confident about the future of APPlife Digital as a company. He noted that the company had been a fully reporting entity on the OTCQB for more than five years and that was one of the reasons behind the confidence. He added that the board of directors was going to help APPlife Digital sensibly seek acquisition opportunities by ways in which the company could grow. He also stated that there was the anticipation of listing to a national exchange.

Multipolar Development Corporation Electric Machine Prototype Promises Unprecedented Versatility

Multipolar Development Corporation

Multipolar Development Corporation (MDC) an electrical and automation engineering company announced details on its patented multipolar electric vehicle (EV) propulsion enhancement system today. The company has begun construction and testing of a physical prototype of its novel multipolar electric vehicle propulsion enhancement system. MDC’s Recent successes with finite element method (FEM) models of the system have paved the way for the development of the first iteration of the revolutionary electric machine design. “The technology is performing even better than we anticipated,” stated MDC CEO and inventor, Shaun McCutcheon. “We fully intend to shock the EV industry as our patented technology advances it to a new level of efficiency and performance.” Multipolar Technology™ manages the speed and torque of a DC electric machine directly through advanced intelligent control, requiring fewer external drive components and power connections and eliminating the need for brushes and commutators. Breaking the “medium voltage” barrier The innovative Multipolar approach is a response to the rapidly growing demand for high-power electric machines. In addition to the push to replace internal combustion motors with greener alternatives, there’s an increasing need for more efficient DC electric generators, particularly at an industrial scale. With heavy industrial applications and electric vehicles (EV's) being the next phase for green initiatives, Multipolar marks a significant milestone in machine technology. The increased efficiency and scalability of MDC’s patented design will allow its DC machines to operate at voltages of 2000 V and above (medium voltage above 1 kV) – something that has been traditionally impractical for DC electric machines. Long-term use, electrical arcing, and environmental conditions lead to mechanical wear and imperfections that reduce efficiency in high-power motor and generator applications. By using its unique control system to dynamically alter a machine’s pole configuration, Multipolar can compensate for these conditions in real time to offset inefficiencies and accumulated mechanical defects. Ultimate versatility and customization The biggest advantage of Multipolar machines is versatility. Traditional DC electric machines have a fixed design and operation. With a Multipolar DC machine, however, the performance can be optimized for the demands of each end device or system using software and machine learning. Engineer and electric motor consultant Thomas Neroda stated, “The major advantage of the Multipolar machine is the performance versatility. With almost unlimited performance configurations, the machine can be uniquely adapted to match the requirements of the end application.” The Multipolar machine will allow end-product designers to use a custom controller with multiple performance options and settings. An array of sensors will inform intelligent software, both at setup and during operation, not only to optimize performance to meet initial design specifications but also to maintain that efficiency and performance under dynamic conditions. With a range of operational speeds at full power, designers will even be able to repurpose Multipolar machines when applications or operational demands change. The upcoming Multipolar electric machine prototype, expected to be completed in mid-2023, will demonstrate the practicality of an intelligent multipolar DC electric machine design setting the stage for further research and production including new Multipolar Universal AC/DC Machines. “At a time where political leaders in the United States are seeking to position the country as a global leader in EV manufacturing, the introduction of our technology has perfect timing,” Shaun McCutcheon continued. “With more than $3 billion expected to be invested into the domestic electric vehicle industry by the U.S. Department of Commerce, and likely even more from private investors, we expect significant interest in the technology our team of engineers developed.” Multipolar Development Corporation is an Austin, TX-based C-Corp comprised of energy, electric, and automotive engineering experts. ### Please visit: for more information.

Privacy Is More Important Than Ever In The New Age Of AI – Tech CEO Alain Ghiai Explains

Sekur Private Data Ltd

By Faith Ashmore, Benzinga AI art has been taking the internet by storm lately. Apps like Lensa AI allow users to take a selfie and have it transformed into avatars, whether it be a goddess, superhero, or Renaissance-era portrait. CEO Alain Ghiai of Sekur Private Data Ltd. (OTCQX: SWISF) (CSE: SKUR) (FRA: GDT0) recently spoke to New to The Street to share his concerns about the data privacy around these seemingly harmless apps. Ghiai warns viewers about the danger of AI apps because when users engage in these platforms, the platforms gain access to facial recognition. He shares, “these apps, like Lensa AI and others like it, entice people to give away your personal details and your facial unique features, and it's a trap. Essentially you are being fooled to give your facial recognition features.” Ghiai explains that Big Tech platforms are known for cybersecurity breaches but more concerningly, they sell and rent your data, and the companies and people they sell that data to, are not protecting users’ data from hackers. He estimates that the data lending business is worth around $185 billion yearly. While there have been some updates to privacy laws that Big Tech companies and apps have to adhere to, the laws aren’t too strict and Terms & Conditions do not guarantee safety. Recently California and the European Union enacted new privacy changes on data which has led to an increase in privacy policy updates, but this does not prevent Big Tech platforms from mining and selling personal data. This is what makes Sekur such an appealing company to individuals who are concerned about their privacy. Sekur is a US-listed cybersecurity and internet privacy company with roots in Switzerland that provides private and secure communications and data management. It uses military-grade encryption security and combines it with its proprietary encryption and Swiss data privacy laws. The Swiss are known for their tough privacy laws and willingness to penalize tech providers who violate those laws. Sekur is best known for its corporate products like SekurMail and SekurMessenger which offer users complete privacy. Capitalizing on the strict Swiss privacy laws, Sekur has built a brand that prides itself on state-of-the-art technology allowing for secure communication. The company recently announced its advancement into a new market with its new Swiss hosted and highly encrypted VPN product, SekurVPN. Ghiai explains that privacy is in the company’s DNA. Every product is designed with privacy as a foundation. For Ghiai, allowing people to divest from Big Tech platforms and have access to products like SekurMail or SekurMessenger gives people peace of mind and protects them from exploitation. He compares Big Tech companies to “advertising agencies,” and Sekur has a strict policy of never selling, lending, or renting data. In a way, Sekur is democratizing privacy. This article was originally published on Benzinga here. Sekur Private Data Ltd. is a Cybersecurity and Internet privacy provider of Swiss hosted solutions for secure communications and secure data management. The Company distributes a suite of secure cloud-based storage, disaster recovery, document management, encrypted e-mails, and secure communication tools.

CleverTap’s Fintech Benchmark Report: Only 1 in 5 users that install fintech apps sign up within week one


CleverTap, the modern integrated retention cloud, released its Industry Benchmark Report for Fintech Apps 2022. As fintech apps continue to grow more popular, the number of players vying for market share has increased. This has subsequently reduced customer retention and “stickiness” for any one brand. Therefore, today more than ever, it is crucial that fintech companies find ways to drive customer “stickiness” by engaging users in effective ways that eventually drive transactions and fuel growth. The report reflects data collected from Asia-Pacific, Europe, India, Latin America, Middle-East, and North America. The report gives marketers a truly holistic view of key metrics within the fintech app landscape.It also spans a wide variety of fintech apps, including, but not limited to, mobile payment apps, cryptocurrency, and block chain services, along with banking and insurance among others. These insights will not only serve as a helpful starting point for developing successful engagement strategies, but also assist in understanding how an app fares in comparison to global averages. Some of the key metrics in the report include: Install to sign-up rate: Only 1 in 5 users that install fintech apps (21%) end up signing up within the first week. Average time to sign-up: 70% of the users that sign-up, do so within 75 seconds of launching the app for the first time. Sign-up to conversion rate: 95% of newly signed-up users make at least one financial transaction in the first month. Average time to convert: 76% of newly signed-up users move from onboarding to deeper-in-the-funnel engagement within an average of 7 days. Session frequency: On average, fintech app users launch their app around 11 times a month. Average repeat transaction rate for new users: 15% of newly signed-up users complete more than one transaction in the first week. Average click-through rate for push notifications: On average, 9% of Android users and 6% of iOS users will click on and interact with push notifications. Average click-through rate for in-app notifications: The click-through rate for in-app notifications is 24%, that’s about 3 times more than that of push notifications. Average email open rate: 34% users open emails sent by fintech companies Average Stickiness Quotient: Fintech apps enjoy a stickiness quotient of 22%, that indicates nearly one-quarter of MAUs consistently return to their fintech apps “The fintech industry has seen exponential growth in the last few years. Given the relentless competition within the space, fintech platforms need to step up their Omnichannel engagement efforts to better retain customers,” said Jacob Joseph, VP-Data Science, CleverTap. “The benchmark metrics laid out in our report provide a great starting point for growth marketers looking to develop effective marketing strategies. They will be able to compare numbers against global averages and pinpoint which aspects they are excelling at and which areas could use some attention or innovation.” 95% of new fintech users complete a monetary transaction in the first month. This shows that while users see value in fintech apps, it’s important to adopt customized user engagement strategies to boost retention on the platform. Today there is a real need for fintech brands to bake-in effective marketing strategies within their apps. Users will remain responsive as long as the experience is engaging and seamless.
