Halving of BTFS Storage Rewards

BitTorrent

Singapore, May 28, 2024 – To sustain the growth and success of the BitTorrent ecosystem, BTFS is set to implement a halving on the next round of rewards for storage miners on the BTFS network. From 00:00 (UTC) June 25, 2024, the daily rewards for storage miners on the BTFS network will be halved from 15 billion BTT to 7.5 billion BTT. The BitTorrent File System (BTFS) is a decentralized file storage system that utilizes blockchain technology and peer-to-peer transmission. It allows users to store their files across multiple nodes in a distributed manner, enhancing file security and reliability. BTFS also offers rapid file transfer and access, giving users greater convenience in managing and sharing files. By integrating key features of the BitTorrent Chain (BTTC), such as cross-chain connectivity and multichannel payment options, BTFS significantly enhances user experience. Currently, the BTFS network is experiencing rapid growth with over 8 million nodes across the network, including more than 6 million super miners, according to BTFS SCAN. To support the efficient operations of these nodes, BTFS initiated a rewards program and has provided an aggregate of 25 trillion BTT since the launch of BTFS Mainnet in 2019. Every two years, the BTFS rewards halving will occur causing the rewards for all storage miners across the network to be cut in half. (Halving roadmap) Moreover, halving will also prompt miners to improve node performance by optimizing node operation and reducing waste. In addition, an upgrade of the official website for the BTFS technical community and the release of BTFS v3.0 Mainnet will be scheduled in sync with the halving. These developments are expected to improve the efficiency of the BTFS protocol, expand the user base, and enhance its overall functionality. Looking ahead, BTFS is committed to continuously refining its storage rewards strategies. The goal is to expand the network of nodes participating in file storage on BTFS, providing developers with an efficient, secure, and reliable storage solution boosting both the capacity and the transaction efficiency of the BTTC network. About BTFS The BitTorrent File System (BTFS) is both a protocol and a web application that provides a content-addressable peer-to-peer mechanism for storing and sharing digital content in a decentralized file system, as well as a base platform for decentralized applications (Dapp). The BTFS team has been working on the latest network operations and BTT market sentiment, etc., to make a series of dynamic adjustments such as upload prices and airdrop reward schemes. About BitTorrent Founded with a leading peer-to-peer sharing technology standard in 2004, BitTorrent, Inc. is a consumer software company based in San Francisco. Its protocol is the largest decentralized P2P network in the world, driving 22% of upstream and 3% of downstream traffic globally. Its flagship desktop and mobile products, BitTorrent and µTorrent, enable users to send large files over the internet, connecting legitimate third-party content providers with users. With over 100 million active users, BitTorrent products have been installed on over 1 billion devices in over 138 countries worldwide. Since November 2018, TRON (TRX), Binance (BNB), and Bitcoin (BTC) holders have the opportunity to purchase one-year subscriptions of BitTorrent or µTorrent products, including Ads Free and Pro for Windows. Pro includes anti-virus and anti-malware screening, file converting and playability in HD. Users can visit bittorrent.com or utorrent.com to learn more.

This significant achievement underscores DB Schenker's commitment to setting the standard for safely and efficiently handling lithium battery shipments, a critical component in today’s technology-driven market.

Barbara England, Sr. Director of Operations for Airfreight, DB Schenker, said, “The process began with comprehensive training, where Air Export Operations personnel and Air Product Management teams completed the IATA Lithium Battery Logistics Safety Management Certification Program. Following this, DB Schenker conducted a thorough self-assessment to ensure alignment with IATA’s exacting standards.” Brendan Sullivan, IATA’s Global Head of Cargo, said, "Congratulations to DB Schenker for achieving CEIV Lithium Batteries Certification for their operations in the United States.

This checklist, featuring over 200-line items, required DB Schenker to demonstrate the highest level of precision and commitment to safety standards. Upon completion of the assessment, the findings underwent a rigorous validation process by IATA, culminating in the certification being awarded on January 29, 2024, with the notable distinction of zero non-conformities – a testament to DB Schenker's diligent preparation and dedication to excellence. The implications of receiving the CEIV Lithium Batteries certification are far-reaching for DB Schenker.

This certification aligns with DB Schenker's strategic vision to lead the logistics industry in safety, efficiency, and reliability. With the growing reliance on lithium batteries across multiple sectors, DB Schenker is well-prepared to support its customers with the highest level of service.

Announcing Nilu27: a Hypercar Brand from Celebrated Designer Sasha Selipanov

Nilu

Nilu27 is the company founded by Sasha and Inna Selipanov to introduce an extraordinary vehicle lineup over the next ten years. And it begins this summer with the public debut of their first vehicle: the breathtaking V12-powered NILU hypercar, which will be revealed to the public at Pebble Beach during Monterey Car Week in August. The new company – named from a combination of the founders’ daughters’ names, Nica and Lucia – brings an unrivalled depth of automotive knowledge and expertise. Sasha’s sports car legacy includes landmarks that began with the Lamborghini Huracán before moving on to the Bugatti Chiron and Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo. Sasha was also responsible for the design of the Koenigsegg Gemera and Koenigsegg CC850, among the many vehicles stemming from his two-decade career in the automotive industry. Nilu27 was co-founded by Inna Selipanov, who brings a wealth of marketing and business development experience to the venture. Aside from being married for more than 20 years, Inna and Sasha enjoyed dynamic collaborations during their respective stints at Genesis and Koenigsegg. Combining their complementary skill sets in this new endeavor puts them on a unique path to disrupt the industry. CRAZY ENDEAVOR Sasha felt sports car development had veered off course in an effort to check way too many boxes. The automotive industry’s fascination with technology has led to a plethora of technologically advanced, yet emotionally sterile products. Sasha’s vision is to explore the DNA of what defines a sports car, focusing on an emotional engagement with each of our senses. The vision is unique in both his approach to the product and brand itself, resulting in vehicles that promise to be beautiful and brutal in equal measure. The NILU hypercar will create an authentic analog driving experience, deploying a naturally aspirated engine designed to set the driver’s senses tingling. “ One of my most vivid childhood memories was seeing an old magazine clipping of Gilles Villeneuve in his #27 F1 car power sliding out of a corner. I instantly fell in love with the image of that visceral, beautiful beast,” Sasha recalled. “This passion took me on a rollercoaster ride through my career, culminating in Nilu27. Now, my team and I are finally able to explore the quintessential automotive themes of beauty and brutality without the limitations commonly imposed by the industry or preconceived commitments to technology. We cannot wait to present our first car this summer! ” PEBBLE BEACH DEBUT After living in Sasha’s mind and sketchbook since 2007, his vision has taken a physical form and will be revealed first to a number of industry insiders in Los Angeles in early August. It will then be seen by the public and media for the first time on the ramp at Pebble Beach Golf Course on August 15 during Monterey Car Week. Following its debut, the NILU hypercar will appear at a number of events and functions during the week, culminating in its appearance on the Concept Lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on August 17-18. For more information, please visit www.nilu27.com EDITOR’S NOTE A high-resolution image of the NILU hypercar can be accessed here, along with animated video assets: dropbox.com/scl/fo/xs0d07ogk4mql24ohf934/ANMDxpHteiH-sMbk0rhmfzo?rlkey=46ac9r5qafnea7leve9f7a7of&dl=0 Any media wishing to interview Sasha Selipanov or the founding team should please contact greg@theidagency.com ABOUT Nilu27 Founded in 2024 by Sasha and Inna Selipanov, Nilu27 is on a mission to produce quintessential sports cars. With a primary focus on beauty and brutal performance, the company’s purpose is to celebrate all elements of the car that engage the senses. This sometimes means divorcing from technology.

Surf Air Mobility Beats Revenue Guidance and Appoints Former Bombardier Flexjet Exec as New Interim CEO

MarketJar

Surf Air Mobility Inc. (NYSE:SRFM), a leading regional air mobility platform, just announced its incoming interim-CEO, Deanna White, a leading pioneer in the aviation industry. 1 Deanna, Surf Air Mobility ’s former CFO and current Senior Advisor, will become full time Chief Operating Officer and interim CEO for Surf Air Mobility Inc. (NYSE:SRFM). Deanna White brings years of executive experience in aviation and a proven commitment to transforming flight. This news also marks a significant milestone for the aviation space, which is primarily a male-dominated industry. Deanna is the perfect choice to guide Surf Air Mobility into the future as the company turns its focus to profitability and efficiency. Her unparalleled depth of experience in the aviation industry, combined with her intimate knowledge of Surf Air Mobility and the broader opportunity, positions her to lead the company towards new heights. Since joining Surf Air Mobility in 2021, she has made valuable and long-lasting contributions as both CFO and Senior Advisor of the company. Deanna’s previous experience in both emerging aviation technologies and private charter operations makes her an amazing fit. She has served as COO at Kittyhawk, which was sold during her tenure to Boeing and has subsequently been rebranded as Wisk Aero, where she led the business operations and commercialization of an R&D eVTOL aircraft program. She was also CEO of Bombardier Flexjet, a global leader in private aviation, which was ultimately sold to Directional Aviation Capital for $185 million. Deanna is a seasoned industry leader, blending an intimate knowledge of Surf Air Mobility and its people with an unparalleled depth of experience in the aviation industry. She has a proven track record of success in the C-Suite of multiple innovative companies across the Air Mobility sector. Her previous experience in C-level positions at Bombardier Flexjet and Kittyhawk, continues to guide and inspire her as she leads Surf Air Mobility into its next chapter. This new phase will balance growth and opportunity with profitability, as Deanna reshapes the industry and realizes Surf Air Mobility ’s massive potential. In a CEO transition, Stan Little, the founder of Southern Airways and current Surf Air CEO, will move to a "Founder’s" role. Surf Air Mobility also provided financial and business highlights for the first quarter of 2024. The company is making progress on key initiatives, including supporting 19 communities under the Essential Air Service program and entering into an MOU to supply electric powertrains to Tanzanian Cessna Caravan operator Auric Air. The aircraft electrification program is on track to complete the conceptual design phase by the fourth quarter of 2024, and software development for B2C and B2B platforms is ongoing. To enhance its capital structure, Surf Air Mobility has engaged a leading investment bank to secure additional, non-dilutive or less-dilutive capital in the form of a credit facility. Congress is expected to imminently pass the FAA Reauthorization Act, which, in its current form, would positively impact the Essential Air Service (“EAS”) program by raising the subsidy cap from a maximum of $200 per passenger to a maximum of at least $650 per passenger. As of March 31, Surf Air Mobility supported 19 communities under the EAS program. The FAA Reauthorization Act requires the total cost of an air carrier's proposal to be equally weighted with other factors such as local recommendations, including frequency of service, and interline agreements. This focus on cost favors Surf Air Mobility’s low-cost Caravan fleet. Stan Little, founder of Southern Airways, highlighted that Surf Air Mobility achieved many first-quarter goals and met or exceeded guidance. He noted their collaboration with Congressional leaders from both parties to reform and expand the Essential Air Service program, aiming to benefit passengers, commuter air carriers, and taxpayers. Additionally, the company continued its electrification efforts, which are designed to benefit all stakeholders. For more information on the company’s first quarter financial results and outlook, visit investors.surfair.com. Surf Air Mobility Advances Regional Air Travel Through Electrification Surf Air Mobility Inc. (NYSE:SRFM), headquartered in Los Angeles, is dedicated to transforming regional air travel through electrification. The company partners with commercial leaders to develop innovative powertrain technology for smaller aircraft, with the goal of making regional flying more accessible and affordable while reducing environmental impact. Supported by a management team with expertise in aviation, electrification, and consumer technology, Surf Air Mobility is at the forefront of sustainable air travel innovation. In March, Surf Air Mobility signed an agreement with Auric Air Services Ltd. to upgrade up to 12 of their Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft with Surf Air ’s electrified powertrains, aiming to lower emissions and reduce operating costs. Auric Air, a Tanzania-based regional air operator, will be among the first to benefit from Surf Air 's technology once it is certified. This agreement marks a significant milestone for Surf Air, as it now has agreements covering approximately 13% of the Cessna Caravan market in Africa for electrified powertrain upgrades. Surf Air is currently developing Supplemental Type Certifications for both hybrid and fully-electric variants of the Cessna Grand Caravan. The company aims to achieve up to 50% reduction in direct operating costs and 100% reduction in carbon emissions for the fully-electric powertrain, which could have a profound impact on the aviation industry worldwide. This agreement with Auric Air follows similar agreements with other large Cessna Caravan operators in East Africa and Brazil. In February, Surf Air Mobility and Electra.aero Inc., a next-gen aerospace company, partnered to introduce affordable, sustainable, and easily accessible regional air travel. They plan to leverage Electra’s hybrid-electric short takeoff and landing (eSTOL) aircraft on Surf Air ’s technology-driven, on-demand air mobility platform, and through Surf Air ’s Aircraft-as-a-Service (ACaaS) offering to air operators. Surf Air Mobility Inc. (NYSE:SRFM) has secured early delivery positions for 90 Electra eSTOL aircraft, which will be integrated into the Surf Air national flight network, including Southern Airways Express and Mokulele Airlines. This initiative aligns with Surf Air ’s goal of supporting the launch, growth, and optimization of new electrified aircraft through its platform. The Electra eSTOL aircraft’s remarkable ability to take off and land in as little as 150 feet will enable direct-to-destination air transportation, expanding regional transportation to a broader customer base beyond what private aviation currently serves.

UNOS applauds passage of FAA reauthorization bill

United Network for Organ Sharing

Today, the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) issued its support of Congress’ passage of the bipartisan, bicameral Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reauthorization bill, which includes a provision to improve the safety and efficiency of the transportation of donor organs through the nation’s commercial aviation system. The bill now heads to the president’s desk for signature. The Securing Growth and Robust Leadership in American Aviation Act requires the Department of Transportation (DOT), in consultation with the FAA, to convene a working group to develop best practices for transporting organs in the cabin of a commercial aircraft. The working group will include organ procurement organizations, transplant hospitals, commercial airlines, flight attendants and other federal agencies. DOT is required to convene the working group no later than 90 days after the bill is enacted. No later than one year after convening, the working group must present recommendations to the secretary of DOT. Before the September 11 attacks, organs – primarily kidneys – were transported within a commercial flight’s main cabin under supervision of the aircrew. The attacks prompted significant changes to airport protocols, including removing transplant professionals’ ability to accompany an organ through security without an airplane ticket. As a result, organs currently travel in the cargo hold and are subject to cargo business hours, which vary between airlines and are impacted by staffing shortages. Organs arriving when a cargo office is closed sit on ice for prolonged periods, increasing the potential for an organ not to be used. “Ensuring a donated organ gets to a patient on time and safely is absolutely critical, which is why UNOS has been working with the donation and transplant community and Congress to create a process to bring organs out of the cargo hold and back into the cabin of an airplane,” said Maureen McBride, Ph.D., CEO of UNOS. “Thank you to those working with us to advocate for change and include this provision in the FAA reauthorization package, namely Senators Ron Wyden, Maria Cantwell, Ted Cruz, and John Thune, and Reps. Bruce Westerman, Greg Stanton, Beth Van Duyne, Sam Graves, and Rick Larsen. The bill’s passage highlights the bipartisan consensus and understanding of the lifesaving importance of this issue. I appreciate the commitment to honor the gift of life and do right by patients on the waitlist, generous donors, and their families. I look forward to working with the Department of Transportation to bring organs back into the cabin of an aircraft.” Transportation is a cornerstone of the UNOS Action Agenda, a series of recommendations to strengthen the U.S. donation and transplant system. To further reduce the risk of delaying or damaging organs in transport, UNOS also recommends the next contracts for the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) should require the use of physical trackers for unaccompanied donor organs recovered for transplant, and the establishment of a centralized organ tracking system. “Donations and transplants are going up across the country, and so are the number of organs traveling every hour of every day,” said McBride. “This community owes it to patients and donor families to ensure that organs travel as safely and efficiently as possible. Every viable organ ultimately not transplanted represents a profound loss.” The provision included in the FAA reauthorization bill is the result of ongoing advocacy by UNOS and other members of the nation’s organ donation and transplant community. Since 2022, UNOS has engaged with FAA leadership, the Transportation Security Administration and the House and Senate to pursue this reform. Actions to move organs back to the airplane cabin and out of cargo are widely endorsed by the donation and transplant community, including the American Association of Kidney Patients, American Foundation for Donation & Transplantation, American Kidney Fund, American Society of Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics, American Society of Nephrology, American Society of Transplantation, American Society of Transplant Surgeons, Association of Organ Procurement Organizations, Donate Life America, Donate Life Virginia, Kidney Care Partners, Kidney Transplant Collaborative, National Kidney Foundation, Nationwide Organ Recovery Transport Alliance, North American Transplant Coordinators Organization, Organ Donation Advocacy Group, Renal Physicians Association, Transplant Recipients International Organization, Transplant Families, Transplant Unwrapped, and Waitlist Zero. About UNOS United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) is the mission-driven non-profit serving as the nation’s transplant system under contract with the federal government. We lead the network of transplant hospitals, organ procurement organizations, and thousands of volunteers who are dedicated to honoring the gifts of life entrusted to us and to making lifesaving transplants possible for patients in need. Working together, we leverage data and advances in science and technology to continuously strengthen the system, increase the number of organs recovered and the number of transplants performed, and ensure patients across the nation have equitable access to transplant.
