Byzen Digital Expands Advisory Board with Appointment of Joshua C. Simons, Visionary Strategic Marketing Innovator




Reading Time: 3 minutes

London, UK, Aug. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — Byzen Digital Inc. (OTC PINK: BYZN), a technology mergers and acquisitions company, today announced that Joshua C. Simons, a visionary Strategic Marketing Innovator, has been appointed to the company’s Advisory Board, effective immediately. 

Mr. Simons is a seasoned business builder and team leader who has deep expertise in carefully articulating and developing a successful business vision. His role in the companies he’s launched or led has provided him with the paradigm-shifting insight to define the strategic product position—a critical step toward reinventing or staging a company’s overall brand personality and image. Mr. Simons is proficient at creating an environment that encourages participation, promotes accountability, builds consensus, and develops and empowers key talent to meet goals and objectives. He views challenges as opportunities and thrives in a fast-paced environment that requires the sensibility to address changing priorities and circumstances smartly, timely, and accurately.

Mr. Simons is recognized for his ability to transform the USA Super Bowl halftime show from a sleepy, low-ratings display of marching bands to a global blockbuster of entertainment headlined by superstars like Michael Jackson, David Bowie, Tina Turner, Prince, Janet Jackson, The Who, Justin Timberlake, and the Rolling Stones. He revolutionized brand marketing by pairing top clients like Pepsi, Ford, Sony, the NFL, NASCAR, Revlon, Target, Bacardi, Panasonic, and MGM-Mirage Hotels with attention-grabbing events and venues. He helped pioneer new-technology media by creating, launching, and leading satellite radio powerhouse XM, which evolved into SiriusXM; and Rockbill/EMCI, the first branded entertainment company launched in the USA. Mr. Simons has also spearheaded the creative and business-development efforts behind the launch of the first 24/7 OTT gaming television network, The WHAM Network, devoted to the booming business of professional and amateur video gaming, and the creation of a game-changing, new set top box from DevWerks built for underserved TV households in North America and Asia without access to high definition television. 

Chris Percy, President of Byzen Digital, commented, “I am extremely excited to welcome Joshua to the Byzen Digital Advisory Board. His experience with blue chip companies and innovative expertise in taking companies across vertical markets will be of great value to the businesses that are being targeted by Byzen Digital in both the merger and acquisition and consultancy divisions of our commercial activities.”

Joshua Simons joins a highly experienced team on the Advisory Board that includes the investment and deal-closing expertise of Shaun Wootton and Garry Potticary, and David Black, Mark Casey and Sam Buxton, whose tech backgrounds are proving crucial to developing Byzen Digital’s consultancy capacity.

Xalles Announces Partnership with ATN Trading to Expand Distribution of Powerful Crypto Trading Engine




Reading Time: 3 minutes

WASHINGTON, DC, Sept. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — Xalles Holdings Inc. (OTC: XALL), a fintech holding company leveraging blockchain technology for financial reconciliation and payment auditing solutions, today announces that its wholly owned subsidiary, Xalles Financial Services Inc., has executed a revenue sharing agreement with All The Numbers Trading Company, LLC (d/b/a ATN Trading) for the distribution of its automated cryptocurrency trading solution.  

Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum trade with a relatively high level of volatility, 24 hours a day, seven days a week – making fast and efficient trading crucial for success and profitability. Similar to the “trading bots” used by expert traders and financial institutions to quickly execute trades in the stock market, ATN Trading’s automated engine enables quick and efficient trading in cryptocurrencies.  

“With our system, traders have full control over their trading strategies,” said Brian Groot, ATN Trading’s managing partner.  “Each trader determines how aggressively or conservatively to trade and can set the trade size, margin, spacing, floor and ceiling for multiple cryptocurrencies. We are pleased to work with Xalles Financial Services to expand our customer reach of this system into new markets.”

Under the revenue sharing agreement, Xalles Financial Services will distribute the crypto trading engine to a large community of traders among its contacts and within its client base of expert traders and institutional firms. The partnership follows extensive testing of the trading engine, which demonstrated strong flexibility and configurability.

“After months of testing ATN Trading’s system, we are highly impressed with the results; it exceeded our expectations,” stated Thomas Nash, CEO of Xalles Holdings and president of Xalles Financial Services. “We selected ATN Trading as our revenue sharing partner because of the integrity of the platform and its unique pricing model. This as an excellent opportunity for us to profitably participate in the cryptocurrency investment market segment.”

About Xalles Holdings Inc. (OTC: XALL)

Xalles Holdings Inc. is a holding company that focuses on direct investments in disruptive fintech companies. The company actively seeks acquisition targets in which it can invest and accelerate growth, targeting companies with solid management teams and business models, large total attainable markets (TAM), and lucrative exit opportunities. The company places emphasis on leveraging blockchain technologies to provide industry-leading financial reconciliation and auditing solutions, which, over time, will allow for the capture of recurring revenue streams.
