VGFM Increases Deposit with Digital Bank DB3

VG Fund Management (VGFM) has announced its intention to deposit an additional sum of $200 million into DB3 Bank, following their initial deposit of $300 Million in August, thus bringing their total deposit amount to $500 Million in just one month. This is VGFM's second investment tranche for their "VG Precious Metals and Crypto Fund" which was incepted in March 2020.

VGFM is a US based fund management group which provides a wide range of investment banking, financial advisory and management services to high net worth individuals, corporations as well as institutional clients. The first tranche of VG Precious Metals and Crypto Fund was completed in March this year with funds of $300 Million invested into gold, silver and bitcoin. Since then, gold has been seen appreciating steadily, silver doubling up and bitcoin more than doubled its value.

The first phase of the second investment tranche was done in August and a total of $300 Million was deposited into DB3 Bank with an option to add another $200 Million. The option was exercised yesterday and this brings VGFM's total deposit with DB3 Bank to a princely amount of $500 Million. DB3 Bank is a world-renowned digital bank registered in Dominica with operations as a private offshore bank, primarily catering to institutions or high net worth individuals in providing them with global assets investment and management services. It had also issued its own cryptocurrency in the form of DB3 Token. It recently launched its digital asset management mobile app, and plans to gradually integrate its business development into the app.

 "We had chosen DB3 as we wanted to settle for something less volatile after our first tranche of investment to balance up the fund a bit. After our initial deposit, we got an in-depth understanding of DB3 Bank and its operations and we were really impressed with what we have seen. The management's vision for the company, their efficiency at tackling short term problems and hitting short term targets totally win us over. We are delighted to exercise our option and deposit another $200 Million with DB3." said VGFM's Chief Operating Officer Mr Noel Sinclair in a Zoom conference yesterday.

"The two main reasons why we are confident with depositing our fund with DB3 Bank are the fact that the total market value of their DB3 tokens are massively undervalued and we were offered really good entry. Its intrinsic value is at least 50 times more than its current market value and it has since proven us right with its positive movement right after our initial deposit. At VGFM, we always pride ourselves as good judge of companies and before we invest, we will always look at the underlying intrinsic value of that company. DB3's foray into the global cross-border remittance looks really promising. The idea of using cryptocurrency as the medium where the fiat currencies do not actually leave the country is a brilliant idea and I'm really convince that this could be the future of what cross-border remittance will be like in the near future. Nobody will want to pay high fees to the banks for expensive and slow services if they can do it at a lower fees and almost immediately. This is definitely the future of cross-border remittance." added Mr. Dan Logan, VGFM Chief Executive Officer during the same online conference.

It was also understood that the injection of the additional $200 Million does not signal the end of VG Precious Metals and Crypto Fund's second investment tranche. Instead, the company is open to continuing increasing their stakes in DB3 Bank in the coming months. Since the third investment tranche is widely speculated to be that of China's very own central bank digital currency, CBDC and the launch is still nowhere in sight, VGFM's collaborations with DB3 Bank looks to continue with the second investment tranche remaining wide open.

Threat to US elections not limited to Russia in 2020

Sep 22, 2020

WASHINGTON — Russia interfered in the 2016 election and may try to sway next year's vote as well. But it's not the only nation with an eye on U.S. politics. American officials sounding the alarm about foreign efforts to disrupt the 2020 election include multiple countries in that warning. Concerns abound not only about possible hacking of campaigns, but also about the spread of disinformation on social media and potential efforts to breach voting databases and even alter votes. The anxiety goes beyond the possibility that U.S. adversaries could directly affect election results: The mere hint of foreign meddling could...

3 get Nobel prize for showing how cells sense low oxygen

NEW YORK — Two Americans and a British scientist won a Nobel Prize on Monday for discovering details of how the body's cells sense and react to low oxygen levels, providing a foothold for developing new treatments for anemia, cancer and other diseases. Drs. William G. Kaelin Jr. of Harvard University, Gregg L. Semenza of Johns Hopkins University and Peter J. Ratcliffe at the Francis Crick Institute in Britain and Oxford University won the prize for advances in physiology or medicine.

Where have the wild birds gone? 3 billion fewer than 1970

Sep 22, 2020

WASHINGTON — A comprehensive study shows there are nearly 3 billion fewer wild birds in North America than in 1970. The new study finds that the bird population in the United States and Canada was probably around 10.1 billion nearly half a century ago and has dropped 29% to about 7.2 billion birds. Study lead author Kenneth Rosenberg, a Cornell University conservation scientist, says the thinning of the flocks is happening before our eyes but is so slow we don't often notice. Rosenberg and colleagues projected population data using weather radar, which captures flocks of migrating birds, 13 different bird...

No Deal: Auto workers strike against GM in contract dispute

Sep 22, 2020

DETROIT — More than 49,000 members of the United Auto Workers walked off General Motors factory floors or set up picket lines early Monday as contract talks with the company deteriorated into a strike. Workers shut down 33 manufacturing plants in nine states across the U.S., as well as 22 parts distribution warehouses. It wasn't clear how long the walkout would last, with the union saying GM has budged little in months of talks while GM said it made substantial offers including higher wages and factory investments. It's the first national strike by the union since a two-day walkout in...

Union votes to strike at General Motors' US plants

Sep 22, 2020

DETROIT — The United Auto Workers union announced Sunday that its roughly 49,000 workers at General Motors plants in the U.S. would go on strike just before midnight because contentious talks on a new contract had broken down. About 200 plant-level union leaders voted unanimously in favor of a walkout during a meeting Sunday morning in Detroit. Union leaders said the sides were still far apart on several major issues and they apparently weren't swayed by a GM offer to make new products at or near two of the four plants it had been planning to close, according to someone...
