The financial sector records millions of fraudulent transactions every year, and most of the victims are common people who own debit and credit cards. Skimming devices are being used to copy information, and card owners will be surprised at the amount that they would have to pay thanks to the criminals who are stealing their financial information.
These fraudulent transactions are commonplace these days, but Serge Belamant – the founder and the current head of Net1 Technologies – is confident that this flawed security in the financial sector will finally be resolved thanks to the blockchain debit cards that his company developed. After the announcement of his company’s newest invention, many investors started putting their money on the company, greatly increasing their company value and stock prices. Serge Belamant is excited to see how the blockchain debit card would change the world of banking and finances, and he is expecting that millions around the world will start switching to this new type of banking option.
Serge Belamant stated that the banking revolution has begun, and through Net1 Technologies, a futuristic approach in banking could slowly be applied to help the society adapt. The patent for the blockchain debit card was filed by Net1 Technologies decades ago, but they only had the time to develop a real-life counterpart after they finished their research studies about the possibility of developing the product using the available technologies. Serge Belamant added that the blockchain debit card is not restricted to debiting purposes, and users of this technology can do more transactions and processes.
In the present, the technology works perfectly with EMV, and the security provided by the blockchain debit card is satisfactory. Serge Belamant is a supporter of technological advancement in the financial sector, and he stated that one of the reasons why his company created the blockchain debit card is to minimize the number of fraudulent incidents that victimizes a lot of innocent people. He wanted to curb the statistics on the number of people who have lost considerable amounts of fortune to criminals, and he is hoping that the blockchain debit card would be the ultimate answer to this problem.

Guilherme Paulus is a Brazilian businessman who ventured in the tourism sector. When he was 24 years old, he co-founded a tour operator services firm, along with a wealthy Brazilian politician who helped him with the funding. Using the experiences he had back when he was still an intern with IBM, he managed to transform the company and turn it into one of the most profitable businesses in the country. Many people who have been to Brazil have either tried the services that he offered or paid for the tours that would take them around the country. Guilherme Paulus’ tour operator services firm eventually became the leading business of its kind in the whole Latin American region, and it keeps on generating a lot of profit because of the growing tourism sector in Brazil.
Guilherme Paulus and the Brazilian politician founded the tour operator services firm in 1972, but four years later, the Brazilian politician decided to sever ties with the company he co-founded and left Guilherme Paulus to manage it alone. However, he was never discouraged from managing the company all by himself, and he even turned it into an inspiration to succeed. Decades later, after he realized that the company he created is now well-known and many people are aware of the services it provides, he decided to establish another business.
The GJP Hotels and Resorts were founded in 2005, and Guilherme Paulus managed to open 15 locations across Brazil. He chose to build his properties near seaports, airports, or any point of entry for foreign tourists. The hotels and the resorts he owned have numerous rooms which suit every budget, but he caters mostly to those who are looking for a luxurious place to stay. The GJP Hotels and Resorts promise their clients that they will enjoy their stay within the property because of their world-class services and professional staffs.

Wes and the Fortress Investment Group
In 1998, Wes partnered up with fellow entrepreneurs and launched Fortress Investment Group. He then went on to serve the company at the position of Chief Investment Officer. During this time, he got the company to invest in a variety of industries including healthcare, real estate, media, transportation, and infrastructure as well as among others. He also played the roles of private equity head and co-chairman and co-CEO. When Fortress was acquired by SoftBank Wesley retained his position as a principal.
Wes Edens has recently launched a new project under Fortress known as the Brightline Train. The Brightline Train is the only privately owned and operated passenger train in the whole of USA.

Together with the Egyptian billionaire Mogul Sawiris Wes Edens just purchased major stocks in the English football club called Aston Villa. Edens intends to make several necessary changes in the club to ensure its success in the industry.
By looking at some of the investment made by the Oregon State University graduate, we can start to understand some of the decisions that Wes Edens continues to make. The Fortress Investment Group co-founder has been one of the most influential people within the group and continues to guide the group’s operations to date. He has been a specialist in distressed debt assets and has not shied away from making investments in them. This has been done in his private capacity as well as for the group. He was one of the key influences that led to the acquisition of American General Finance a company that was heavily invested in subprime. In 2010 following the crisis that had hit that sector not many investors would have been willing to touch such an asset but not Wes Edens. He knew precisely what AIG needed and would with the help of distressed business expert and Co-CEO who is also in charge of the credit division at the Fortress Peter Briger acquiring a controlling stake for 125 million dollars. The first order of business for Wes Edens was to revamp its investment strategy, and by 2015 the company which had been renamed to SpringLeaf Financial had already grown to 3.5 billion dollars. This was a 27-time growth in value for a company that most investors would have considered unsalvageable. The wall street journal would go on to refer to Wes Edens as the new king of subprime. The company has today grown to manage assets worth more than 14 billion dollars.
He was not done with this sector as he went on to acquire Centex Home Equity company. This is what many people know as Nationalstar Mortgage where Wes Edens is the chairman. The company was in a similar space when it was acquired for 575 million dollars. This is what makes him one of the best when it comes to taking over distressed businesses. He has also had a keen interest when it comes to sports investing. He recently acquired a significant stake at Aston Villa which is an English football Club that has been in existence for the last century or so.
The education of young Jews is one of the measures that the Jews are taking to ensure that they preserve their culture. It is the young generation that will take over leadership of the community years to come and push the community’s agenda further. If they happen to be unaware of the history of their community, they will into a trap that is set by their enemies. Being the only democratic country in the Middle East, Israel has many enemies from the neighboring dictatorial nations who are looking for the slightest opportunity to attack the Jewish state.
Adam Milstein, one of the community leaders for the Jewish-American community believes that one of the ways that the Jews can instill pride among themselves is by focusing on education. When Jews are educated right from a young age about their history, language, values, and culture, they will grow up knowing that they need to protect their values.
The education that the children get according to Adam Milstein should be focused on helping them to grow up knowing that they need to be committed to their families and the community. The education should also help them know how to live in the current times, in the face of the challenges that face the Jewish community such as anti-Semitism.
Adam Milsteintalks about educating the Jewish children to think outside the box. Critical thinking is one of the factors that should be insisted on and should be given priority. It should be encouraged among the young Jews right from a young age. The lessons that the children pick up will be instrumental in the future growth of the community. The next generation of Jews must be able to tackle the challenges that the community faces. There should be no more oppression of the Jews based on historical propaganda that has been peddled by agents of hate.
Adam Milstein is using his resources which he has gotten from his investments in the real estate sector. He has a company known as Hager Pacific Properties. He is turning his success in the business sector into the success of the whole community.
