Will UnitedBitcoin Replace Bitcoin? This Ambitious Upcoming Bitcoin Fork Will Be Launched Globally on December 12, 2017 in Silicon Valley

By United Bitcoin

SAN FRANCISCO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / December 10, 2017 / Bitcoin’s price surge can be attributed to the news surrounding Bitcoin forks. The Bitcoin Cash fork, in particular, has spawned many additional forks in the industry, thereby dividing the community and causing a lot of uproars.

Meanwhile, many people who hold bitcoins are waiting for forks to happen to get free tokens without thinking much of either the concept or the technology. However, the UnitedBitcoin fork is very different, not only in theory but also in the implementation specific to its technology.

UnitedBitcoin also referred to as UB (official website: ub.com), has the currency symbol of UBTC. The total volume, block-speed and halving time are the same as Bitcoin’s. Additionally, UnitedBitcoin’s PoW mechanism is the identical to Bitcoin’s as well, except it has the lower initial difficulty.

UnitedBitcoin supports SegWit and has an 8MB block size to improve on-chain scalability. It also adds new smart-contract features and plans to support the Lightning Network later on.

Implementing Lightning Network and Smart Contract functionality on top of the Bitcoin’s UXTO model is very exciting but not easy to do. However, QTUM has been able to accomplish this and create a massive worldwide technical support community as well.

UnitedBitcoin’s smart contract system is a newly developed technology showcasing the capabilities of the development team. However, the number of teams around the world that can independently develop virtual machines for smart contracts is still limited.

Bitcoin has the advantages of being globally recognized for its stable monetary system and having the ‘first mover’ advantage, a position which a fork cannot easily overturn. Nonetheless, with a new business model, UnitedBitcoin has the chance to make a difference.

The goal of UnitedBitcoin (UB) is to honor Bitcoin owner’s holdings, meaning all active addresses will receive UnitedBitcoin balances of the equivalent amount. Inactive balances will be transferred to multi-signature wallets controlled by the UB Foundation.

Part of the remaining UnitedBitcoin will be used for distributing rewards to other entities in the ecosystem, such as Ethereum (the first smart contract), QTUM (the first smart contract on top of Bitcoin), Litecoin (the first major alt-coin), HSR (the first alt-coin with an algorithm that has anti-quantum attack properties) and other major chains.

All remaining UnitedBitcoins will be used as a credit guarantee pegged to fiat currencies similar to USDT.

Project Overview of UnitedBitcoin

In other words, there is no pre-mining, no reservations and the whole blockchain is participating.

Firstly, based on the number of participants, UnitedBitcoin is definitely the furthest in reaching. Previously, only Bitcoin holders can be rewarded the forked coins, but now it is possible to get UnitedBitcoins if you hold one of more than 10 currencies (such as ETH, QTUM, LTC, HSR, etc.). As a result, when all holders of mainstream cryptocurrencies as well as their respective trading platforms go to ub.com to get UnitedBitcoin, it will result in an unprecedented level of participation.

In terms of preserving value, UnitedBitcoin’ s fork will expectedly cause busy activities, and UBTC will spread across all active participants in cryptocurrency spaces around the world. As a result of the dispersal, the forking will not cause any drastic sell-offs.

All of these improvements are possible because Bitcoin has established itself as a globally recognized credit system and we can use the lessons learned by others to adapt and improve.

Of all UnitedBitcoin’s implementation plans, the best and most sophisticated idea is to re-utilize inactive Bitcoin balance to benefit the world.

The number of inactive Bitcoins may be higher than those in circulation. However, UnitedBitcoin does not merely distribute the inactive Bitcoins; it locks them up as credit carrier pegged to fiat currencies worldwide.

Both UnitedBitcoin and its reserve pegged against fiat currencies supports smart contracts, which provides infinite possibilities for the circulation of cryptocurrencies. Imagine the size of the pegged fiat currency system, endorsed by the value of half of the existing UnitedBitcoins.

The circulation of these digital currencies pegged against fiat currencies will, in turn, bring added-value to UnitedBitcoin, which will also bring the world more available digital currencies pegged against fiat currencies. This cycle, just as Bitcoin’s fork that brought about a rise in Bitcoin price, will be a real boost to the cryptocurrency ecosystem. Systemically, none of the UnitedBitcoins will be in a sell-pressure position.

Although there may be imitators copying UnitedBitcoin’s forking procedure, the asset allocation procedure introduced by UnitedBitcoin should prevent Bitcoin’s price from being influenced too much by all the rather eventful forks.

Additional Bitcoin forks, or their derivatives, may divert attention away from Bitcoin. However, UnitedBitcoin will continue to lead the development of the next generation of Bitcoin.

UnitedBitcoin has outstanding developers and excellent business partners to bolster its position. They plan to fork Bitcoin to UnitedBitcoin on December 12, 2017, and finish the manual distribution on 3 January 2018, when it will be the 9th anniversary of Bitcoin.

Neil Shekhter – of NMS Properties – on How To Make A Fortune With Real Estate

By NMS Properties, Inc.

LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / December 10, 2017 / Staking into real property can bring about just enough bonuses over a period if managed accordingly. Be sure to examine the area of interest and then make a choice on the type of investment that you are interested in. Achieving your goals can be easily realized when concentrating on a selected bit. If you might consider selling out your acquired property, think of value addition for it to fetch attractive prices. If you will rent out, carefully choose your tenant.

Before getting into the business, go for talks and workshops and take time to read books and articles about realty business. This will act as a guideline. This process might not enrich you with all the rules to follow but it will familiarize you with certain aspects. Qualified persons that you should be able to have at your disposal include realtors, attorneys, insurance brokers, accountants, mortgage brokers and accountants. They are useful in terms of property management and as handymen in taking care of certain faults.

The sweetest thing about land holdings is the bonuses. The money gotten is useful in purchasing more assets. It is foreseeable since you will get bonuses every month or at the stipulated time according to your agreement. The income can be used in paying off debts, maintaining the property in a good shape and taking care of minor issues. The float should be used in maintaining the business throughout the varying seasons of the business curve.

The state favors the realty owners by granting them tax benefits. They do this by cutting down the tax rates for long-standing bonuses and values of depreciation. This is a non-monetary expenditure that raises the total business costs and trims down taxed income. If you possess land holdings near recreational facilities and tourist sites, be sure to enjoy these benefits more.

When wanting to purchase land holdings and you do not have enough capital, you can use bank loans to fasten the process. You should not worry about the debts since the occupant will pay off the debt increasing your net worth. Low class houses owners are not exempted because no one is left out in the gain.

Real property mostly does not face inflation problems. As a business owner, be sure you will evade the price rise effects according to the current market rate of other goods. With time, the worth of your property will be increasing. This gets you time to balance your charges in relation to inflation rates. This is a good shield against losses as compared to losses that other businesses encounter. This therefore is a sensible and rational choice to settle on.

Dealing with land holdings could be true even if you do not possess money required to own the property. You can always apply for a bank loan and use it as payment or you can pay slowly by making the first payment followed by subsequent monthly installments. The asset you have acquired will be increasing in value over time thereby generating more profits.

Where you choose to buy your property influences the type of properties to be constructed especially if it is land. Evaluate the possible attractions available and construct according to the needs. Keep in mind that the idea is to take full advantage of the benefits through your holdings.

Lucinda Franks Reports on Her Sexual Harassment Experience in Op-Ed Piece in the New York Times – Sunday, December 10, 2017

By Lucinda Franks

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / December 10, 2017 / Ms. Lucinda Franks reports on her personal experience with sexual harassment in the 1970s. The article is in the Op-Ed section of The New York Times’ “Week in Review,” Sunday, December 10, 2017.

The article presents an original point of view and information not yet publicized on sexual harassment as it existed in that turbulent feminist era. It was a time when, if you made it into a newsroom as a reporter, you were the only woman in a sea of hostile men.

The male id was kept under restraint then; men’s inappropriate advances were almost harmless clichés. And those pioneering women of this era were fierce self-defenders, who used physical force and choice words to quash any abuse of our bodies.

Lucinda Franks writes, “As the recent flood of anguished revelations has come out from sexually harassed women, my reaction has been complex – I’ve been skeptical over some of the confessions, but they have caused me to look back on my youth. I realize that men who couldn’t get at us sexually used a more subtle but perhaps deadlier form of gender degradation – the shaming of women.”

Lucinda Franks is a journalist, a war and investigative reporter and an accomplished author who was the first woman and the youngest person to win The Pulitzer Prize for “National Reporting.” Lucinda won The Society of the Silurians Prize (twice), the Easter Seal Award, and several other journalism prizes. She’s been a featured staff writer on The New York Times, The New Yorker, and United Press International and now freelances for these magazines. She has taught writing at Yale and Princeton Universities and Vassar College. Ms. Frank appeared on numerous major television shows as a correspondent and covered stories.

Her Pulitzer story was a five-part series on Diana Oughton, the Weatherman member who killed herself in a Greenwich Village townhouse turned into a bomb factory.

Her books include two memoirs: “Timeless: Love, Morgenthau, and Me” and “My Father’s Secret War,” a novel: “Wild Apples,” and a nonfiction book: “Waiting Out a War: The Exile of John Picciano.” She has also been in two anthologies.

Her New Yorker article on “The Fight for Baby Jessica” was made into a television movie and her memoir ‘My Father’s Secret War’ is currently being made into a film starring Kiefer Sutherland and his father, Donald Sutherland.

Lucinda Franks’ impressive accomplishments, other lifetime achievements, and bio can be found on her website, www. Lucindafranks.com.

Neil Shekhter – of NMS Properties – on Developing Townhouses in Los Angeles

By NMS Properties, Inc.

LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / December 9, 2017 / Developing townhouses is a popular process that some families are choosing to undertake in order to get some extra cash. Learn how to subdivide your land into the construction of multiple townhouses while still living on the land yourself.

These quick and easy steps will show you how to get started.

What is a Townhouse?

If you aren’t too familiar with townhouses, it’s best to learn what differentiates them from other types of dwellings. Townhouses are most commonly defined as shared-wall housing, which means that all units share at least one common wall with each other.

The townhouse itself is constituted as a singular building, which can be owned by you and rented out to various tenants. Keep in mind that you also own the land as well – you are purely selling the room space for a profit.

There are several measures you can take to ensure that you are building your townhouse in a legal and standard way. To make money developing townhouses, you must follow these five steps:

1. Increase the Value of Your Investment

You can request a tax assessment of your property in attempt to reduce your operating costs. The more you can force appreciation, the smaller of a purchase you can make. There are several tips you can employ to cut corners as well. Be more efficient with your usage of water, gas, and other natural resources. Negotiate the lowest rates possible for repairs and building services.

2. Estimate Your Capitalization Rate

Be aware of your capitalization rate before you invest. A simple formula to determining this rate is:

• Divide your property value by its net income.

• Subtract operation costs from the resulting amount.

• The rest is your capitalization rate.

3. Analyze Your Market

Before taking the final step to rent out your townhouse, do some real estate research to see what the current market is like. Invest in other units to rent out to see what prices are going for. You can get in touch with an agent to get a glimpse of realistic rental prices. Be sure to factor in all of your remaining fees, such as:

• Operating costs.

• HOA fees.

• Maintenance and repairs.

• Taxes.

• Mortgage payments.

4. Try a Real Estate Investment Trust

Invest in an entity that can share your real estate for tax advantages. You will find that over 90% of your taxable income can be disbursed to shareholders. Make sure to find a trust that specifically works with townhouses to ensure the accurate form of real estate holdings.

5. Get Approval and Begin Construction

Start gathering quotes from builders and construction workers for your project. While this may be an overwhelming task, there are a variety of phenomenal builders out there who can get the job done right. Make sure to request a copy of insurance certificates to ensure liability.

You must also obtain a development approval from the town with the help of an architect or engineer. After that, the construction process can begin.

Why Should I Do it Myself?

Many homeowners and land owners ask themselves why they should build townhouses on their own property instead of finding existing dwellings to buy and rent out. The advantages of using your own land to create a townhouse subdivision are plentiful, and far worth the investment.

When you decide to develop on your own property, you benefit from the following:

• You receive far better rental returns than if you were to go with an already-existing unit on somebody else’s land. This can help contribute to your mortgage payments or other operation fees.

• You will save far more money in the long run. A land development project typically runs 20% under normal market value.

• You will receive amazing tax benefits. By owning and renting a new property, your taxes will have a huge boost. You can profit from the tax benefits for years.

• Development profits are substantial. You will be making a lot more money developing on your own land.

Beginning a development and investment project can be daunting, but the profits far outweigh the fears. As long as you know to consult your local architects, builders, and real estate trusts, you can ensure a successful new development. After construction is complete, you can start to rent out parts of your own land as individual townhouse units to incoming families and neighbors.

Endo International plc provides specialty healthcare solutions. The Company develops, manufactures, markets, and distributes pharmaceutical products and generic drugs. Endo International offers its products to the medical and healthcare industries around the globe.

On September 28, 2015, Endo announced that it had completed its $8.05 billion acquisition of Par Pharmaceutical Holdings, Inc. (“Par Pharmaceutical”) from the private investment firm TPG (the “Par Pharmaceutical Acquisition”). Par Pharmaceutical Companies Inc. is a manufacturer and distributor of generic drugs and operates as a subsidiary of Par Pharmaceutical.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Par Pharmaceutical had colluded with several of its industry peers to fix generic drug prices; (ii) the foregoing conduct constituted a violation of federal antitrust laws; (iii) the competitive advantages of the Par Pharmaceutical Acquisition, which Endo touted to its shareholders as, inter alia, “a compelling opportunity to drive future double-digit growth, serve our customers and build shareholder value,” were in fact derived in part from Par Pharmaceutical’s illegal conduct and thus unsustainable; (iv) for the same reasons, the “impressive track record of delivering strong operating results” that Endo attributed to former Par Pharmaceutical executive Paul Campanelli in announcing his promotion to Endo’s CEO consisted in part of illegal conduct; (v) for the foregoing reasons, Endo’s revenues during the Class Period were in part the result of illegal conduct and likewise unsustainable; and (vi) as a result of the foregoing, Endo’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On November 3, 2016, media outlets reported that U.S. prosecutors were considering filing criminal charges by the end of 2016 against Par Pharmaceutical and several other pharmaceutical companies for unlawfully colluding to fix generic drug prices. In an article titled “U.S. Charges in Generic-Drug Probe to Be Filed by Year-End.”

On this news, Endo’s share price fell $3.54, or 19.48%, to close at $14.63 on November 3, 2016.

On March 1, 2017, Endo filed an Annual Report on Form 10-K with the SEC, reporting in full the Company’s financial and operating results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2016. Reflecting the extent to which Par Pharmaceutical’s unlawful conduct had previously inflated Endo’s revenues, the Company reported a net loss of $3.35 billion, or $15.03 per diluted share, on revenue of $4.01 billion, citing, in part, a 27% increase in cost of revenues and a decrease in gross margins from 36% in 2015 to 34% in 2016.

On this news, Endo’s share price fell $0.83, or 6.08%, to close at $12.82 on March 1, 2017.

On October 31, 2017, attorneys general from 46 states and the District of Columbia amended their antitrust case on generic drug price-fixing conspiracy against the $75 billion generic drug industry to add 18 new companies, including Endo’s wholly-owned subsidiary Par Pharmaceutical Companies, Inc. The states allege these companies violated antitrust laws to artificially inflate the prices of the drugs by agreeing to “collectively raise and/or maintain prices for a particular generic drug,” and agreeing to divvy up the market for the drugs to reduce competition by “refusing to bid for particular customers or by providing a cover bid that they knew would not be successful.” This in effect “avoided price erosion” and “increased pricing for targeted products without triggering a ‘fight to the bottom’ among existing competitors.”

According to the amended complaint, these companies conspired to unreasonably restrain trade, artificially inflate and reduce competition in the generic pharmaceutical industry for the markets of fifteen generic drugs: Acetazolamide, Doxycycline Hyclate Delayed Release, Doxycycline Monohydrate, Fosinopril-Hydrochlorothiazide, Glipizide-Metformin, Glyburide, Glyburide-Metformin, Leflunomide, Meprobamate, Nimodipine, Nystatin, Paromomycin, Theophylline, Verapamil and Zoledronic Acid. As a result of the conspiracy, “[p]rices for dozens of generic drugs have risen – while some have skyrocketed, without explanation, sparking outrage from politicians, payers, and consumers across the country whose costs have doubled, tripled, or even increased 1,000% or more.”
