New International Tax and Investment Center Research Reveals Link between Tax and Illicit Alcohol Market Size29.11.2022 18:30:00 EET | Press release

The International Tax and Investment Center (ITIC) released new research on illicit alcohol revealing that high tax rates on alcoholic beverages can divert consumers to the illicit alcohol market, which poses a major threat to public health and finances. Experts examined illicit alcohol in Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Malaysia, South Africa, and the United Kingdom to uncover the largest drivers of these illicit markets, which are bad for consumers, communities, and businesses due to their negative social and economic impacts. In alignment with the OECD’s Illicit Trade in High-Risk Sectors report , the research showed that a significant price difference between the licit and illicit alcoholic beverages is one of the biggest drivers; if consumers struggle to afford legal alcoholic beverages, they will turn to cheaper, illicit ones that can be very dangerous and potentially lethal.

New Hybrid Exchange Ankex Delivers High-Performance Crypto Trading From Secure Self-Custody29.11.2022 18:02:00 EET | Press release

Ankex announces the launch of a new kind of hybrid crypto derivatives exchange which offers sophisticated trading and transparency from the secure self-custody of a decentralized wallet. The launch comes at a time when recent events have shattered investor confidence and drawn attention to the major security and performance trade-offs that investors are forced to accept when trading on either centralized or decentralized cryptoasset exchanges. Whilst centralized exchanges typically offer deeper liquidity, lower latency, and tighter spreads, investors are forced to surrender their funds to an exchange-managed wallet which is vulnerable to hacking or malpractice. Ankex’s hybrid model removes this trade-off, enabling high-performance trading from secure self-custody, one of the main benefits of decentralized exchanges. When trading on Ankex, user assets remain in secure wallets (“Vaults”) protected by Qredo’s decentralized MPC (dMPC) and located on its Layer 2 blockchain. Because no asset
