What makes USDQ so unique?

Platinum Engineering Team presents USDQ

SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE, April 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nick Krashennikov is a full stack engineer at PLATINUM ENGINEERING. In this article, he shares the unique nature of USDQ, a stablecoin his team is helping to develop. Prior to his career, Nick successfully participated in a number of software development projects for major EU banks. USDQ leverages a stack of novel technologies, among which are predictive capabilities, algorithmic stabilization, and community incentives. Soon there will be even more fully backed stable coins: JPYQ, KRWQ, SGDQ, HKDQ, CNYQ, RUBQ under Q DAO ecosystem. Read on to learn about what makes USDQ so unique.

The USDQ stablecoin – A better alternative

The USDQ is a decentralized stablecoin that is being developed by the PLATINUM ENGINEERING and is set to launch by early 2019. USDQ will be backed by bitcoin and other top 10 cryptocurrencies in future, reserves and offers cryptocurrency traders with increased options to leverage opening and closing positions, and also offers the opportunity to trade a fiat-like currency, all the while being in the world of cryptocurrencies.

How does a stablecoin work?
A stablecoin is a cryptocurrency whose price remains relatively stable and is not prone to market volatility often associated with crypto assets. A stablecoin’s value is often pegged to a particular fiat currency, mostly, the US Dollar. Tether (USDT), for example, is the most popular example of a stablecoin. Built at the Omni blockchain and has its price linked, or “tethered,” to the U.S. Dollar. Such coins are excellent instruments for traders to trade more efficiently without having to actually deal with fiat, and they also allow cryptocurrency exchanges to provide their users with a currency that is just like fiat, without the hassles of the long and arduous verification process associated with fiat trading.

PLATINUM Blockchain Engineering Team are working to develop a fair and transparent stablecoin which will operate as a trusted asset-backed currency. The USDQ will also address the problems faced by other stablecoins like Tether USDT, BitShares BitUSD, Circle USDC, Gemini GUSD etc

How it works

The USDQ works similarly to Tether. However, it has a more robust process that keeps its price very stable to the US Dollar. It operates in a completely decentralized market setting and the price forming mechanism is controlled by the market, without any centralized governance.

Q DAO works with USDQ to help keep its value stable, while that of Q DAO can freely fluctuate. Users can create USDQ by using itcoin (BTC) as collateral.

USDQ always works to stay as close to the value of the US Dollar as possible. Smart contracts work to adapt to changing market dynamics and control the price. This is to make sure that the value of the USDQ always remains pegged to the US Dollar and although being a cryptocurrency, it maintains its price stability.

How to create USDQ? BTC (or other top 10 cryptocurrencies in the future) has to be collateralized, i.e., it has to be pledged into the system where it is held until the USDQ issued to the individual isn’t returned back.

The cryptocurrencies thus pledged against USDQ are held safely and securely in a crypto asset control system. Once the trader returns the USDQ, the pledged crypto assets are “de-frozen” and returned. The received USDQ are “burned” so as to maintain the number of coins in circulation and not volatilize price.

The Q DAO tokens can also be used to pay the stabilization fees while using USDQ. When there is demand for USDQ, there will a subsequent increase in the demand for Q DAO tokens as well. Also, when users pay stability fees in Q DAO, the paid Q DAO are burned, thus reducing the total supply of the Q DAO tokens and eventually, increasing its value.

This process maintains the price stability and helps traders overcome high volatility by giving users the ability to generate their own USDQ coins via smart contracts. Each USDQ is backed by assets that are held in a decentralized asset control system.

USDQ is decentralized stablecoin, which uses algorithms to offer higher stability and reliability. Fully on-chain and monitored by high-speed AI robots, ecosystem offers reliable defences against malicious acts and attacks. First run in line of fiat-pegs, USDQ is brought by PLATINUM BLOCKCHAIN ENGINEERING Team, looking to edge together innovative solutions in collateralization, using stabilizing mechanisms and oracles for high-endurance stablecoins. Soon there will be even more fully backed stable coins: JPYQ, KRWQ, SGDQ, HKDQ, CNYQ, RUBQ under Q DAO governance. Fully anonymous, USDQ breaks limits out of this legacy world

PLATINUM ENGINEERING is always happy to share its latest development and architecture solutions, helping stakeholders to spread improvements across crypto projects. Being an expert company on the market, PLATINUM ENGINEERING has already helped 150 crypto startups, enabling them to efficiently raise funds and introduce blockchains to their business models.

GDP Terpene Strain Profile

GDP Terpene Strain Profile

RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, USA, April 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Farm to Vape is pleased to announce the release of their Terpene line today on 4/20. They will be releasing more terpene strain profiles each week in convenient 2ml kits that will retail for $20. Every Farm to Vape Terpene Profile Kit contains enough natural terpenes from certified organic plants to flavor over 100 grams of vape oil, distillate or CBD isolates. Farm to Vape Terpenes are non-cannabis derived so they are 50 state legal. Larger sizes will be available soon.

Terpenes are aromatic molecules that give plants their smell. Cannabis for instance uses many different terpene combinations that produces strains that smell different from one another. Some of the most common terpenes contained in cannabis indica and sativa are beta-caryophyllene, limonene, myrcene, alpha-pinene, beta-pinene, linalool and humulene. Farm to Vape utilizes 34 different terpenes in combinations up to 20 different terpenes for each strain profile. They work with gas-chromatography results from certified breeders for each strain profile to ensure they’re producing accurate profiles every time.

Farm to Vape Terpenes are extremely concentrated; ONLY 1 drop per milliliter is required. They say to never exceed a 2% ratio with terpenes. If thinning is required, use their Farm to Vape Thinner. Both of which can be purchased from their website.

A Denver Carl’s Jr. is Selling CBD-infused “Rocky Mountain High Cheeseburger Delights” to Celebrate 420

Carl's Jr CBD infused cheeseburgers-2

Carl’s Jr – CBD-infused cheeseburgers

Despite CBD Being Unapproved as a Food Additive by the FDA, Carl’s Jr. is Selling CBD-Infused Cheeseburgers

DENVER, COLORADO, USA, April 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today is 420, and since I’m in Colorado I had to go to the one Carl’s Jr. that is selling CBD-infused “Rocky Mountain High Cheeseburger Delights.”

420 started as an inside joke among a group of Northern California high school students in the 1970s, and has become somewhat of a holiday for marijuana consumers. In recent years 420 has expanded to encompass all things that those in the marijuana community hold dear. CBD-infused burgers are clearly a way to celebrate 420.
I arrived at the one Carl’s Jr. location that was selling the CBD-infused burgers a little before 11:00 am and it was mayhem. There were people directing traffic, the parking lot was overflowing, and there were about 30 cars in the drive-through lane.

I went inside and waited in line for about 15 minutes to place my order. It then took another 15 minutes to receive it.

Appropriately enough, the Carl’s Jr. burgers were sold for $4.20. The CBD was infused in the burger’s “Santa Fe Sauce,” which included jalapenos.

Each burger was infused with 5 mg of CBD, a very minimal quantity. The amount of CBD was certainly not enough to provide any of its well-publicized benefits. While speaking to other customers who were waiting in line, their interest in eating a CBD-infused burger was not about any health benefit, but simply instead was a way to celebrate 420.

I’m guessing that Carl’s Jr. corporate offices had no idea how their franchisee in Denver was celebrating 420. Because the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved CBD as a food-additive, I asked who I thought was the manager whether he had received any calls from either the Colorado or Denver health departments. He said that they had received three calls, but he didn’t respond to my follow-up question regarding the calls. It was clear that the calls didn’t affect their plans to sell CBD-infused burgers. Since the CBD-infused burgers were only being sold for one day, I’m assuming that the state and city decided to let Carl’s Jr. proceed with their 420 celebration.

Carl’s Jr.’s CBD-infused burgers are significant in that it is the first time that a national food chain has added CBD to a menu item. It’s another indication that despite the illegality of CBD as a food additive, that CBD is here to stay, and that no efforts by the FDA will slow down this new industry.

About Carl’s Jr.

Carl's Jr. Restaurants is an American fast food restaurant chain owned by CKE Restaurant Holdings, Inc. The company has more than 1490 franchised and company-owned locations in the U.S., Canada, Australia.

If your child has asthma, you want to know what you can do to help. Read the new article by pediatrician Kenneth Rebong, MD how to handle the condition.

Kenneth Pomar Rebong, MD (N/A:N/A)

Today, about 1 out of 12 people are suffering from asthma and this number is growing each day. What causes asthma is not exactly known, but there are certain risk factors that increase the chances …”

— Dr. Kenneth P Rebong, pediatrician

SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In brief, asthma is a chronic disease affecting the airways that carry air in and out of the lungs. With asthma, the inside walls of the airways are sore and swollen. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 6.2 million children under the age of 18 have this condition (8.4%). Because children have smaller airways, they are particularly affected by it. Affected children have symptoms such as trouble breathing, wheezing, and coughing. There are many causes, including infections (such as a cold), allergens (such as mold or pollen), and air pollution.

Medical doctor Kenneth P. Rebong, MD has published an informational article with a few simple steps to better control your child’s asthma. The complete article will be published on the Blog of Dr. Rebong at https://drkennethrebong.wordpress.com/

Asthma Causes

Asthma refers to the inflammation and irritation in the lungs. People suffering from asthma face difficulty in breathing and often need an inhaler to soothe the inflamed airways. This disease cannot be cured but its effects can be controlled by strictly following rules. Here are the most common asthma causes:

* Allergens such as pollen, dust particles, pet hair, and feathers
* Flu
* Air pollution
* Sudden weather changes
* Certain medicines such as aspirin and ibuprofen
* Mold spores
* Heavy exercise

What Causes Asthma

Asthma is growing with the rapid increase in air pollution. Today, about 1 out of 12 people are suffering from asthma and this number is growing each day. What causes asthma is not exactly known, but there are certain risk factors that increase the chances of a person developing this disease. The risk factors include:

* Genetics – Some people suffer from asthma because they inherited it from one of their parents. There’s nothing they can do about it except keeping themselves away from things that trigger their asthma.
* Allergy – Children with allergies tend to develop asthma. Eczema, food allergies, and hay fever are the common culprits behind the development of asthma.
* Bronchiolitis – It is a lung disease which creates difficulty in breathing. Children develop it at an early age if they are exposed to the Bronchiolitis virus.
* Smoking – If a pregnant woman smokes cigarettes, it is more likely that her unborn child develops asthma.
* Pre-mature babies – Children who are born before 37 weeks are at a high risk of developing asthma.

Asthma Symptoms

People take these symptoms lightly and ignore them, ruling out the possibility that they might be associated with asthma. Some people exhibit these symptoms while others do not. If you find your loved ones suffering from any of the following symptoms, consult a doctor immediately:

* Shortness of breath
* Tightness in chest
* Wheezing – a whistle sound while inhaling and exhaling
* Coughing that lasts for a long time
* Coughing while laughing or during exercise

Asthma patients should carry an inhaler with them at all times. They should stay away from asthma triggers as much as possible. If someone is suffering from an asthma attack and they do not have an inhaler with them, they should try to sit up straight and inhale and exhale deeply. If they are near something that’s a trigger for their asthma, they should immediately get away from it. In case coughing does not stop, they should seek medical help immediately, advises physician Kenneth Rebong.

Dr. Kenneth Pomar Rebong, MD, is a medical doctor in San Jose, California, and specializes in Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine. He completed his Pediatric Residency at RUTGERS University in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

The Vitamin Shoppe Defies the FDA and is Selling CBD Edibles & Drops

The Vitamin Shoppe

In a move best described as “the FDA be damned,” the retailer is proceeding to sell ingestible CBD supplements and drops

DENVER, CO, USA, April 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The national retailer, the Vitamin Shoppe is now carrying CBD softgels and will also start selling CBD drops before the end of the month.

The Vitamin Shoppe has almost 800 stores throughout the United States, and the CBD products will initially be available in 14 states in addition to Washington DC and Puerto Rico.

Seen as a “shot across the bow” of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Vitamin Shoppe will not limit its offerings to topicals but is selling ingestibles. This move goes counter to numerous FDA pronouncements indicating that CBD is not approved as a food additive because it’s not “Generally Regarded as Safe,” nor as a health, wellness nor nutritional supplement.

The move by the Vitamin Shoppe follows announcements by Walgreens, CVS and Rite-Aid that they would sell CBD products. However, Walgreens, CVS, and Rite-Aid are at least for now limiting their CBD products to topicals. This announcement by the Vitamin Shoppe, as a national retailer, they would sell ingestible CBD products is a game-changer.

It’s clear that the Vitamin Shoppe’s strategy is to use CBD softgels and drops as a way to remain at the leading edge of nutritional supplements and as a way to attract new customers to its stores.

Other major retailers, including Target, Kroger and Wal-Mart have been sitting on the sidelines regarding selling CBD products of any kind. The question becomes how long other major retailers can avoid offering their customers CBD products. The food industry is also not immune to consumer pressure to carry food products containing CBD. For major Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) food and beverage companies, the question remains how long they can also afford to stay out of the CBD market.

About the Vitamin Shoppe

Founded in 1977, New Jersey-based, the Vitamin Shoppe is a leading omni-channel specialty retailer of nutritional products. The Vitamin Shoppe is dedicated to helping individuals fulfill their health and wellness needs. The Company is the second largest vitamins, minerals and supplements specialty retailer with over $1 billion in annual revenue. The Vitamin Shoppe has approximately 800 stores throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico.

The Vitamin Shoppe carries one of the most comprehensive retail assortments in the industry including vitamins, minerals, specialty supplements, herbs, sports nutrition, homeopathic remedies, green living products and beauty aids.

Heather Botts

Heather Botts will headline the Montclair State PRSSA April 22 benefit for Autism NJ

Botts Understudies Laura Benanti in the Lead Role as Eliza Doolittle

You don’t get to rehearse with any of the elements before you go on and perform for a live audience. You have to practice on your own and know the show inside and out.”

— Heather Botts

MONTCLAIR, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, April 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — One of the participating headliners for the 7th annual Autism New Jersey Benefit Concert on Monday, April 22 at Montclair State University will be Heather Botts. Botts is a well-known understudy for several Broadway shows including “My Fair Lady,” “Doctor Zhivago,” and LCT’s “The King and I.” Botts discussed the challenges and joys an understudy role can bring and how this autism awareness event is relevant in her life.

Botts mentioned a couple of different factors of a live performance that differ from Broadway. “You don’t get to rehearse with any of the elements before you go on and perform for a live audience. You have to practice on your own and know the show inside and out. In some cases, you have no depth perception because you are basically watching from the sidelines to figure out and know your blocking and where you stand. Once you get in the sandbox, it can feel very different like an out of body experience,” she said.

Botts also mentioned the woes of hair, costume, and the thrill of a live experience. “It will be the first time you are wearing the wigs, the first time you are singing with the live orchestra, the first time you put the costumes on, it is so many foreign elements that you are experiencing for the first time which is why you have to know the script inside and out,” she said.

Out of all the challenges, Botts still remains enthusiastic with every role she gets. As she is headlining alongside other well-known Broadway stars, Rebecca Luker and Sierra Boggess, Botts reflected on what it meant to her to be able to do so and she stated, “It is an incredible honor, I am humbled.” Botts recalled the first time she heard the recording of “Secret Garden” with Luker, calling her voice, “one of the purest sopranos voices” she’s ever heard. She described seeing Boggess for the first time on the big screen for “Phantom of the Opera”, calling her “ridiculously amazing.”

Botts hopes to inspire the audience to give back to cause of helping Autism New Jersey, stating she is, “happy to be part of this legacy.” While Botts herself is not affected with autism in her immediate family, she stated, “I have friends that have kids that have autism, I know some adults that are autistic, and it is just such an important cause and I’m so excited that Montclair State University has this concert to raise awareness and funds.”

In a new article written in layman’s terms, orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Leonard Marchinski informs about Upper Extremity Orthopedics and surgery.


The conditions that are discussed require special care from your orthopedic doctor. When it comes to surgical treatments, each case is different and can’t be treated necessarily like other cases.”

— Dr. Leonard J. Marchinski, Pennsylvania, orthopedic surgery

WYOMISSING, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, April 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hand and upper extremity is broad terminology that includes the functionality of different body parts from your hand to your shoulder, such as joints, bones, ligaments, blood vessels, tendons, soft tissues, and various nerves. These regions of your body are more often afflicted than any other parts because they are heavily exposed to external factors on a daily basis, for and during the performance of many day-to-day chores. Your hand can be adversely affected due to multiple reasons that can cause severe pain in your body. If not treated by an orthopaedic physician, your hand can ultimately stop functioning.

Dr. Leonard J. Marchinski is providing his thoughts on this subject in a new article. The complete article will be available on Dr. Marchinski’s blog at https://leonardmarchinskimd.wordpress.com/ To understand the causes and symptoms of hand and upper extremity health issues, as well as effects and treatments, keep on reading.

1. Tingling Hands
This is a common symptom that can get worse to the extent that you may end up losing sleep, resulting in insomnia. It often begins slowly and temporarily which is why you may ignore it as a harmless feeling. The reason why your hands may tingle is because of the pressure generated on your nerves due to some severe nerve injury, stress injury, toxic intake, viral or bacterial infection, and diabetes. In some cases, the tingling in hands can be extreme, episodic, or chronic. Along with tingling, your hands can be itchy and numb as well.

2. Numbness
Numbness of your hands is often accompanied by tingling and itchiness. Many consider it as a result of CTS – carpal tunnel syndrome – a compression of a median nerve in your wrist, where it passes through a tunnel. While this may be true for some cases, not every other person with numb hands may have CTS. Many other reasons can contribute to numb hands as well. For instance, numb hands can be a result of a compressed nerve due to compression neuropathy. Muscles that are part of the compressed nerve can become weak and twitchy. Another common reason for your numb hands could be an injury, compromised blood vessels, thickened tendons or connective tissues, or ganglion cysts.

Some other reasons that may cause numbness in your hand are as follows:
* Toxic metal exposure
* Brachial plexus injury
* Amyloidosis
* Raynaud’s disease
* Side effects of chemotherapy
* Lyme disease
* Peripheral neuropathy
* Stroke
* Vitamin deficiency
* Vasculitis

3. Arthritis
If you are suffering from arthritis, then it can give rise to bone spurs which may cause pressure on your hand nerves. This may further result in numbness or tickling in your hands and other parts of your body such as wrists and elbows.

4. Pressure on the Neck
You may not know it, but the nerves in your hands and forearms have roots in your neck. If the pressure is produced on the nerves of your neck, the pain can shoot all the way through your hand, wrist, and shoulder.
Several diseases, tumors, infections, and abnormalities related to the spinal cord can cause pressure on the spinal cord and may result in pain in your hand. Decreased reflexes in your arm and forearm may also be caused due to a high-level pressure in your neck nerves. At times, a nerve may be susceptible to pressure in one or multiple parts of the body. Odds are that a nerve is compressed in your neck, which may further affect your hand or arm. This condition is known as “double crush”. When one part of the body suffers from pressure, usually other parts of the body become more susceptible to pressure as well. Therefore, pressure on your neck can easily spike pressure in your hands and cause them to become numb.

The conditions that are discussed in detail above require special care and attention from your orthopedic doctor. When it comes to surgical treatments, each case is different and can’t be treated necessarily like other cases. Some of the most common hand conditions that may require you to consider orthopedic treatments are:

* Ganglion cyst
* Carpal tunnel syndrome
* Hand arthritis
* Wrist/ hand fractures
* Dupuytren’s contracture

If you are suffering from any illness mentioned here, consider the treatment of orthopedics as soon as practicable.
