Massimo Ciociola, Founder and CEO of Musixmatch, Alberto Dalmasso, Founder and CEO of Satispay, Ibrahim al-Koni, Libyan writer, and Jhumpa Lahiri, Pulitzer Prize winner for fiction, have been awarded the Luiss Global Fellowship. The prestigious recognition, now in its second edition, is conferred by the University to personalities who have distinguished themselves internationally in cultural, artistic, economic, social, or technical-scientific fields. Opening the award ceremony at the Viale Romania campus was Director General Giovanni Lo Storto, who then gave the floor to Rector Andrea Prencipe.

The Luiss Global Fellowship – stated Prencipe – celebrates the career paths of individuals who have distinguished themselves through commitment and achievements in various fields. The Global Fellows serve as models and reference points for their ability to navigate the present and build the future, following innovative, diverse, and interconnected perspectives. The 2023 edition of the Luiss Global Fellowship celebrates the creativity of two internationally renowned entrepreneurs and two writers: while Ciociola and Dalmasso have explored and seized opportunities offered by digital technologies, al-Koni and Lahiri have opened new perspectives on the theme of cultural identity. The intersection of business and literature strengthens the identity of Luiss as a place of encounter and dialogue between cultures, perspectives, domains, and disciplines,” added the Rector.

“The Luiss Global Fellowship represents a unique opportunity for students and the university community to interact with true global exemplars, benefiting from their experience and knowledge and contributing to high-quality academic education and the enrichment of future perspectives.”
The motivations behind the recognition are related to the ideas and projects of the four Fellows: Massimo Ciociola has revolutionized the global landscape of music sharing by creating the largest digital library of song lyrics; Alberto Dalmasso has transformed the daily lives of millions of people by creating an independent European digital payment network that is separate from debit and credit cards; Ibrahim al-Koni, an international writer, has brought contemporary Arab literature to a global audience, sharing culture and narratives from desert communities; Jhumpa Lahiri has adopted Italian, which was not her mother tongue, creating stories that address the themes of immigration and cultural transformations, describing the process of hybridization of traditional models from countries of origin with the realities of new host contexts.

Flash News: OKX Liquid Marketplace Exceeds Over USD$3 Billion in Institutional Trading Volume

DUBAI, the United Arab Emirates, June 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OKX, the second-largest crypto exchange by trading volume and a leading Web3 technology company, has issued updates for the day of June 30, 2023.

OKX Liquid Marketplace Exceeds Over USD$3 Billion in Institutional Trading Volume, Records Milestone

OKX is proud to announce that its Liquid Marketplace, an on-demand liquidity network for institutional traders, exceeded USD$3 billion in trading volume. This milestone is a testament to the Liquid Marketplace’s success in providing institutional traders with deep liquidity and reliable execution.

This announcement follows the launch of the ‘Nitro Spreads’ feature on the OKX Liquid Marketplace, an OTC, futures spreads and options liquidity network, allowing traders to make complex basis trades with simple one-click execution.

Selected institutional clients who applied for early access via the Liquid Marketplace website can now use Nitro Spreads; wider access will be available to other institutional clients starting 5 July.

Nitro Spreads is one of the only basis trading tools in the crypto market in which the two legs of the trade are executed together via a central order book, eliminating leg risk between markets. Traders can select a guaranteed spread for a trade, eliminating the risk of the order for one leg being completed without the other. Trades are then matched and settled immediately.

The OKX Liquid Marketplace provides access to deep institutional liquidity and a number of crypto trading strategies, including futures spreads, large options block trades, or spot OTC, to run at scale. In April 2023, OKX announced that the Liquid Marketplace exceeded USD$1 billion in trading volume during the first three months of 2023, and as of the end of June 2023, the trading volume has more than tripled that figure.

To enhance its offering for institutional users, OKX is also expanding custody solutions by partnering with firms like Komainu to give institutional clients more transparency and control over funds while balancing capital efficiency, cost and security.

ROSEN, A GLOBAL AND LEADING LAW FIRM, Encourages UP Fintech Holding Limited Investors to Secure Counsel Before Important Deadline in First Filed Securities Class Action Commenced by the Firm – TIGR

NEW YORK, June 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — WHY: Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, reminds purchasers of the securities of UP Fintech Holding Limited (NASDAQ: TIGR) between April 29, 2020 and May 16, 2023, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”), of the important August 21, 2023 lead plaintiff deadline in the securities class action commenced by the Firm.

SO WHAT: If you purchased UP Fintech securities during the Class Period you may be entitled to compensation without payment of any out of pocket fees or costs through a contingency fee arrangement.

WHAT TO DO NEXT: To join the UP Fintech class action, go to https://rosenlegal.com/submit-form/?case_id=16262 or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email [email protected] or [email protected] for information on the class action. A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than August 21, 2023. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.

WHY ROSEN LAW: We encourage investors to select qualified counsel with a track record of success in leadership roles. Often, firms issuing notices do not have comparable experience, resources, or any meaningful peer recognition. Many of these firms do not actually litigate securities class actions, but are merely middlemen that refer clients or partner with law firms that actually litigate the cases. Be wise in selecting counsel. The Rosen Law Firm represents investors throughout the globe, concentrating its practice in securities class actions and shareholder derivative litigation. Rosen Law Firm has achieved the largest ever securities class action settlement against a Chinese Company. Rosen Law Firm was Ranked No. 1 by ISS Securities Class Action Services for number of securities class action settlements in 2017. The firm has been ranked in the top 4 each year since 2013 and has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for investors. In 2019 alone the firm secured over $438 million for investors. In 2020, founding partner Laurence Rosen was named by law360 as a Titan of Plaintiffs’ Bar. Many of the firm’s attorneys have been recognized by Lawdragon and Super Lawyers.

DETAILS OF THE CASE: According to the lawsuit, throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose, among other things, that: (1) UP Fintech’s business was, quite simply, illegal as it related to operations in China as a result of its failure to obtain the proper licenses; (2) it did not fully disclose to investors that it was engaging in unlawful activity and instead characterized the applicable Chinese laws as ambiguous; (3) the foregoing subjected the Company to a heightened risk of regulatory enforcement; and (4); as a result, Defendants’ statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

To join the UP Fintech class action, go to https://rosenlegal.com/submit-form/?case_id=16262 or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email [email protected] or [email protected] for information on the class action

No Class Has Been Certified. Until a class is certified, you are not represented by counsel unless you retain one. You may select counsel of your choice. You may also remain an absent class member and do nothing at this point. An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.

St Kitts and Nevis announces extension to Citizenship by Investment Programme Sustainable Growth Fund Limited Time Offer due to unprecedented demand

Basseterre, June 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — International investors have been clamouring to take advantage of one of the best deals in the investment migration industry this year – St Kitts and Nevis’ Sustainable Growth Fund (SGF) Limited Time Offer (LTO) which allows investors to gain approval for alternative citizenship in the country in as little as 60 days for a reduced fee.

In December 2022, the St Kitts and Nevis Head of the Citizenship by Investment Unit (CIU), Michael Martin, announced the enactment of the updated St Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment Regulations 2023, which included the introduction of the LTO for the SGF investment option effective 1 January 2023 – 30 June 2023.

On 29 June 2023, Michael Martin made the following comment regarding the LTO:

“We have received an overwhelming response and demand for our Sustainable Growth Fund investment option through the Limited Time Offer and felt that we had to extend the offering for another seven months until 31 January 2024. International investors continue to see the value of the world’s first and finest Citizenship by Investment Programme and this proves it”.

The SGF remains the quickest and easiest route to alternative citizenship in St Kitts and Nevis and now until 31 January 2024, a main applicant can acquire alternative citizenship by contributing only US$125,000 to the SGF and receiving approval in principle within 60 days of acknowledgement by the CIU of submission of their application.

Under the LTO, the minimum SGF contributions are as follows:

  • Single applicant – US$ 125,000
  • Main applicant and a spouse – US$150,000
  • Main applicant and up to three dependants – US$170,000
  • Each additional dependant under 18 – US$10,000
  • Each additional dependant over 18 – US$25,000

Revenue from the SGF has facilitated economic development and social upliftment in the country. The SGF is used to provide financial support to educational institutions, and medical facilities, as well as support infrastructural development, increase tourism, preserve local culture and heritage and support sustainable growth initiatives in the twin-island nation.

Discerning investors are seeing the benefits of being part of St Kitts and Nevis’ success story. Following upgrades to the CBI Regulations, the country now offers one of the most secure and best-regulated investment migration offerings in the world.

This means that international investors looking to hedge their bets in a stable and growing economy should look no further than St Kitts and Nevis.

This extension is a fantastic opportunity for investors to obtain citizenship through the LTO. This is a final extension and from 1 February 2024, the minimum SGF contribution will increase to the amounts prior to the LTO period.

The country is making sure that it has only the best to offer international entrepreneurs and families who have realised that global powerhouses are no longer illustrious investment options due to security risks. Investors want to ensure that they can safeguard their families and wealth in a global economy that has been offering nothing but uncertainty since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.

Smaller governments such as that of St Kitts and Nevis have found ways, through CBI, to protect themselves from global shocks, offer favourable business policies aimed at growing corporations in international markets and, by using international funds channelled to the SGF, can diversify and grow their economy to meet global needs.

St Kitts and Nevis continues to create a name for itself as a financial nexus in the Caribbean with an attractive CBI programme underpinned by a sound legal framework and robust multi-layered due diligence.

For nearly 40 years, St Kitts and Nevis has been the pioneer of the global investor immigration industry and those who recognise this are taking advantage of the LTO.
