An innovative CAD/CAM solution has added to its capabilities, with the latest release of Catia-CADAM Solutions Version 4, Release 2.0. The system is utilized by top design and construction firms in a variety of industries — notably Finland's Deltamarin and Germany's Meyer Werft — and the new version offers three new and 37 enhanced products designed to make the system a greater efficiency enhancement tool. The new Version 4, Release 2.0 supports customers from 2-D drawings to digital mock-up methodologies and notably, expands customer competitiveness and productivity in manufacturing, analysis and mock-up. "We use Catia to design internal areas, such as the bridge and the galley, along with the actual hull, deck structure and propulsion systems," said Juhani Kivi, vice director of EDP with Raisio, Finland-based Deltamarin. "With Catia's 4-D Navigator and the significant enhancements in the Catia-CADAM Shipbuilding Solutions, more than ever we can present an easily visualized end-to-end solution to the ship owners." While the Catia system is designed as a multi-industry support solution, the Release 2.0 of Catia-CADAM Shipbuilding Solution is designed to bring shipbuilders and suppliers an integrated "end-to-end" or "concept operation" solution, with extended modeling features, industry standard support and new generative capabilities in the ship hull steelwork design product. The system disciplines are designed to cooperate through the product's life cycle, from initial hull design through outfitting. It is designed as a common base for design, configuration management, manufacturing, commission, maintenance and operations.

Another of the new products offered in the upgraded package is the Lathe Machining Programmer, which provides extensive turning designs for such operations as roughing, grooving, threading and finishing. The new release also offers full integration across all Catia manufacturing product suites to enable mixing mill, drill and lathe operations in a seamless fashion.

The new release increases the productivity of drawing creation through 2-D view sketching with ease-of-use features for automatic drawing layout, automated view positioning and faster annotation.

Other system enhancements include: the capability to generate the 3-D solid representation of composite material parts and integrate the representation within a digital mock-up; and the extension of Catia 4-D Navigator, the tool for digital mock-up inspection and simulation, to become CAD independent to support access to any CAD system.

Peter Motikat, technical director at the well-respected Meyer Werft facility in Germany, a shipyard that is known for its adherence to the latest technological trends and systems, had this to say about the system: "Since 1989, we have been using Catia extensively in designing our ships, including one of the largest cruise liners in the world." "We go beyond such things as general arrangement, structural steel, HVAC, piping accommodation and electrical design, and use Catia for such crucial features as on-board shopping malls, swimming pools and entertainment centers." Catia-CADAM is from Dassault Systems, and is marketed, distributed and supported by IBM worldwide.

Killexams : Interviews with a serial killer: 'Do you see me as a demon?'

I made a deal with a serial killer.

This advertisement has not loaded yet, but your article continues below.

Dellen Millard wanted to talk to me but insisted much of what he said needed to remain private until after all his murder trials were over. I agreed — it was a sensible request from a judicial perspective as he was in the middle of his second jury trial for first-degree murder.

And, frankly, I was curious to hear what he had to say without waiting for three complicated trials and three appeals. By then, either of us might change our mind.

That term of privacy has since expired.

I interviewed Millard several times, both in person while locked alone with him in a tiny room in jail, and over the phone. The first time was in November 2017 and the last was in late September 2018. There was also a letter or two from him in between.

I revisited those interviews recently while preparing for an episode of a podcast called True Crime Byline. My piece in this remarkable podcast series by Postmedia and Antica Productions is about Millard’s crimes, his victims, and the damage he left behind.

This advertisement has not loaded yet, but your article continues below.

In re-reading my transcripts from my time with Millard, I realized how little of it had been publicly released. There were two stories based on my exclusive jailhouse interviews in National Post back then, timed to his trials and using material he agreed was exempt from our deal.

Some material was withheld to meet our confidentiality agreement. Some was withheld because it was of limited value to public discourse. And some because his crimes were too fresh, the anguish and hurt he caused so raw.

Four years on, I can share more from those interviews, although most of the material will remain on the cutting room floor, primarily for that middle reason, but also for length. Millard is talkative, as am I.

This advertisement has not loaded yet, but your article continues below.

There may be value in knowing what the perpetrator of some of Ontario’s most shocking latest crimes thinks, in hearing new information on his formative years, and how he wants the public to see him.

At the time of my first interview, Millard was being held at the Toronto East Detention Centre. It was during his trial for murdering Laura Babcock, a former girlfriend he killed in July 2012.

My last was a few days after Millard was convicted of killing his father, Wayne Millard, who he shot in the eye as he slept inside the house they shared in Toronto in November 2012.

He probably would have gotten away with those if he and his friend, Mark Smich, hadn’t moved on to another victim in 2013.

Tim Bosma accompanied Millard and Smich on a test drive in Hamilton of a pickup truck Bosma was selling. He never returned. Police later found ash and burnt bone fragments inside Millard’s incinerator, and Bosma’s truck, washed and hidden, in Millard’s trailer.

When I was ushered by a jail guard into a small room for my first interview, Millard jumped up from a metal table, full of energy, and greeted me with a smile and an outstretched hand. He called me Mr. Humphreys, I said Adrian was fine, could I call him Dellen?

“Dell. Just Dell,” he said.

He wore a prison-issue uniform: bright orange T-shirt underneath an orange jumpsuit with Velcro instead of buttons. On his feet were shoes that at first looked like sneakers but turned out to be slippers.

He said he was uneasy about what I might write about him. He felt the media had been unfair — “demonizing” him — and asked if he could read any story I wrote before it was published. I said no and he nodded acceptance.

Different interviews featured different agendas, for each of us.

In the first, he hoped to shift how the public saw him and to sow suspicion about police and prosecutors.

“Do you see me as a demon? As a monster?” he asked me.

“It’s ironic, terribly ironic, that I’ve been characterized in that way. It’s a strategy by the Crown and police — and I don’t see much separation between the two. It makes sense. Whenever there’s a power or authority that seeks to marginalize an individual, the easiest way to get public support is to demonize the individual. Get the public support to attack the monster or demon. I see that as something that’s happened to me.

“I do want people to understand me. At the end of the day that is when this whole thing will start to turn around.”

He spoke with the cadence and messaging of a populist politician when he said he recognized the privilege of his upbringing.

“I got lucky at birth. I know that. It was like a winning lottery ticket: I was born into a family with money. I am still an individual person who happens to have a few more dollars in their pocket than the next guy.

“It was a lot of fun,” he said of his youth.

“I’ve always had a rebellious view of government. I see it is as repressive, oppressive. I’m very distrustful of government. I was raised in my little family — just me, my mom, my dad — and my parents were very distrustful of the government too.”

He said his parents fought the government over business regulation and animal welfare issues. His father kept telling him the seal hunt was allowed only because it built political support in Atlantic Canada.

“That mentality made it easier for me, later in life, to engage in activities that would be considered criminal. It put me in a position where it was one factor that allowed me to justify certain actions — it’s a fight-the-government sort of thing.”

Millard wasn’t referring to murder — he denied killing anyone — but to his organized thefts, drugs, buying black market handguns, tax evasion, mischief.

Millard also told me he had no motive for any of the murders and without motive, there shouldn’t be convictions.

He started with the Bosma murder.

“It doesn’t make sense to kill someone for a used truck. It’s unreasonable. I’m at least a reasonable person. I can think clearly.”

Millard said Smich, high as a kite, shot Bosma by accident on the test drive and Millard then stepped in to protect his buddy with an elaborate coverup, including incinerating Bosma’s body and hiding Bosma’s truck.

Once police were onto him, they ferreted through his past and concocted evidence of past murders to destroy him, he claimed.

“They’re all connected. All of my legal difficulties, they’re all connected. I see them as a whole. I don’t see them as completely divorced from the whole or from each other,” he said.

“Our intelligence is based on being able to connect one dot to the next. Some people see bunny rabbits in the clouds, but at the end of the day, they’re just clouds.”

Millard was allowed to have his IBM ThinkPad laptop with him in our locked room. At my next jailhouse interview he moves seats to orient it away from the room’s small window so guards couldn’t see what we were looking at.

He was moving on to the purported flaw in the prosecution’s stated motive for Babcock’s murder.

“The Crown’s whole theory is that I killed Laura because she was annoying Christina,” he said of his then girlfriend, Christina Noudga.

This advertisement has not loaded yet, but your article continues below.

Millard said he and Noudga had an open relationship at the time.

“They call it a love triangle — more like a love octagon,” he said, emphasizing the joke by widening his eyes in mock dismay.

“We started out as friends-with-benefits, and we started dating without an exclusive clause. She was fully aware there were these other girls in my life…. It was my assumption she had other boys.”

If there was anyone Noudga was jealous of, it was his former fiancée, who was named only as Jennifer at trial.

He opened a file on his laptop and a photograph of Jennifer splashed across the screen, blonde and smiling.

“She’s a beautiful woman,” he said. He claims they remained intimate long after he called off their engagement.

“There are a lot of things I wouldn’t do for Christina. Monogamy is one. Buying expensive gifts is another. I wouldn’t go to her birthday party.

This advertisement has not loaded yet, but your article continues below.

“Jennifer was my ex-fiancée, and I was still taking care of her,” he said. “I let her live on my property, bought her a Jeep… It was Jenn I bought an engagement ring for.”

He shows another photo.

“That’s the ring I had made for her,” he said.

“That’s a nicer ring than what Prince Harry just gave his fiancée. I put work into that. I designed it and I drew it up, all at the different angles. I made architectural style drawings of the ring I wanted for her. I bought the stones and I went to a place that makes jewelry. I put numerology into it; there are 13 stones in total, (she was) born on the 13th.”

He said Jenn was shielded from the public because she was the daughter of two police officers.

Millard appeared confident he could convince me, the jury — anybody — he wasn’t guilty of murder. He never dropped his pose of innocence, but he proved not to be persuasive.

He said the verdict felt like when he was kicked by a horse.

“This one is particularly personal. This is my father. And I loved my dad so much. And he loved me, and he treated me well.

“I thought that momentum had run its course,” he said, that the Crown “had finally run out of steam.”

He said the Crown’s theory on motive in that case — that it was about inheritance, finances, control of the aviation business his father headed and Millard was the heir to — was a lie.

“My father didn’t leave me an inheritance,” he said.

“When my father died he was millions in debt. When he died, I paid his bills. It was me paying into his estate, not the other way around.

This advertisement has not loaded yet, but your article continues below.

“There were assets but there were also a lot of loans that my father had taken out…. So, it’s not like there’s some kind of substantial financial windfall that came my way. Quite the opposite.”

He said killing his father and making it look like suicide would have nullified his life insurance.

“The Crown tried to make that assertion — that was ridiculous — during the trial….

“But the Crown specifically didn’t call anybody who had any real knowledge of my dad’s financial affairs… To then turn around and start to pretend that my dad had money stored away that he did not — that’s just what the Crown seems to do.”

Without these motives, he said, there is only one other option.

“Then your only alternative, your only conclusion, which is exactly what has happened, is well, then, OK, he must be just a psycho killer that loves killing,” he said.

This advertisement has not loaded yet, but your article continues below.

“That’s not how anybody who knows me describes me.”

The first of my stories from our interviews was published in the middle of our meetings, in December 2017. Millard critiqued it, I defended it but we kept talking.

During my last interview, we planned at least two more meetings. He invited me to come to the prison he was being moved to, maximum-security Millhaven.

Before those happened, my second article from our interviews was published.

After memorizing it, Millard changed his mind about talking with me further. A third-party told me Millard had asked him to pass a message to me: Don’t bother coming to Millhaven to see him.

I don’t know specifically why. I suspect it was because I didn’t champion his position as a wrongfully accused. I told him directly at the start that I wouldn’t, but I think he was confident he could convince me and then shocked to learn he couldn’t.

Much like with two juries and a judge who found him guilty.

Up until his arrest, Millard was used to getting his way.

Dellen Millard, now 36, is serving a life sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years.

2 – Lucky Block (LBLOCK)- Daily Prize Giveaways and NFT draws

One of the best performing cheap cryptos in 2022 was Lucky Block. When the project was officially launched in January 2022, its native token LBLOCK was at the center of one of the fastest-selling crypto presales. Moreover, LBLOCK pumped by nearly 60x to just over $0.009.

Lucky Block was also among the fastest digital currencies in history to reach $1 billion in fully diluted market capitalization. Within 90 days of its introduction, this cutting-edge crypto under $1 attracted more than 50,000 investors.

This project includes a blockchain-based crypto-gaming use case that enables traders and investors to participate in regular prize draws. Not only that, but 10,000 different NFTs have been produced by the Lucky Block team.

Lucky Block also offers the best NFTs to buy, as investors who purchase them will be added to the exclusive Platinum Rollers Club. This offers LBLOCK holders a wide range of advantages, including unlimited entry into the Lucky Block NFT draw.

Lucky Block Price

Moreover, users will automatically be put into the daily prize draw after linking their crypto wallet to Lucky Block. The overarching goal of the Lucky Block project is to offer the world P2E rewards in LBLOCK tokens and offer fair and transparent prize draws.

This will be achieved via crypto games and competitions using blockchain protocols.

Not only that, but there are no blockchain fluctuations, payouts are instant, and the prize draw is accessible on a global scale.

At the time of writing, the circulating supply of LBLOCK is approximately $40 million, according to CoinMarketCap. The maximum supply of LBLOCK is 100 billion. Investors can add LBLOCK to their portfolio for a fraction of a cent.

3 – Dogecoin (DOGE) – The Original Meme Crypto Under $1 With Upside Potential

Investors who are desparate to find the most popular crypto might like Dogecoin. This project began life as a parody of Bitcoin. However, although the creators of this digital token only intended to mock the cryptocurrency space, Dogecoin soon turned into a multi-billion dollar movement.

In 2021, Dogecoin became the de-facto meme crypto. Widespread support and exposure from celebrities, in addition to communities of investors on online platforms such as Reddit, started buying DOGE in their droves.

Dogecoin price

As a result, Dogecoin hit its highest ever valuation. This crypto project started 2021 off with a market capitalization of around $1.3 billion. By the end of 2021, it had skyrocketed to a valuation of more than $85 billion

To this day, the project’s native token DOGE is among the most popular crypto to buy on Reddit. At the time of writing, Dogecoin carries a market capitalization of nearly $10 billion and ranks number 10 on CoinMarketCap.

Outside of Reddit however many do consider Dogecoin a ‘shitcoin‘.

Cryptoassets are a highly volatile unregulated investment product. 

4 – Polygon (MATIC) – Disney’s Blockchain of Choice is Trading at Less than $1

The Polygon network was developed to make the Ethereum blockchain more scalable and to support additional use cases. Polygon operates through a sidechain that connects to Ethereum and permits additional processing.

The goal of the Polygon project is to solve Ethereum’s processing capacity issues. As a consensus mechanism, it also makes use of the proof-of-stake paradigm. Additionally, in 2022, Polygon announced a partnership with Disney, the globally recognized media and entertainment company.

Disney has selected Polygon’s blockchain for its esteemed ‘House of Mouse’ accelerator program. Meanwhile, another significant agreement was reached with the popular social media site Reddit.

Polygon price

The Polygon/Reddit partnership will let users buy blockchain-based avatars for their profiles in the NFT format. In the NFT space, it collaborated with Flipkart Firedrops, which is also hosted by the Polygon blockchain.

As a result of these major deals, Polygon is shaping up to be the most promising crypto project of its kind. The market capitalization of Polygon at the time of writing is over $7 billion. Moreover, since this coin’s all-time high of $2.87 in December 2021, MATIC is trading at a 68% discount.

Cryptoassets are a highly volatile unregulated investment product. 

5 – Tron (TRX) – Invest in a Crypto Project That has Partnered With MetaEstate

Tron has been on the scene since 2018 and is one of Ethereum’s most well-known rivals. Its native token is TRX. This project developed an entertainment-focused standalone blockchain, rather than attempting to build a new Ethereum ecosystem.

As a result, the platform gives content producers ownership over their work. They are able to do away with middlemen who control the channels for distribution and revenue collection. They may use the decentralized network to directly share their work and material with friends and followers while earning a commission in the form of digital tokens.

Additionally, Tron incorporates a number of cutting-edge crypto technologies into its decentralized network. This includes Web 3.0, NFTs, DeFi, and dApps. However, this blockchain project has had endorsements from multiple well-known figures.

Tron price

Multiple companies use the Tron network in some way or another. This includes Sony Interactive Entertainment, Samsung, Poloniex, and MetaEstate. The latter is a collaboration that will see Tron entering the metaverse space and building a digital ecological complex in the Cryptovoxels.

For those unaware, MetaEstate is a leading real estate NFT collection on the Ethereum blockchain. As such, this might be the best crypto under $1 for budding digital real estate investors. At the time of writing, the market capitalization of Tron is over $6 billion.

Cryptoassets are a highly volatile unregulated investment product. 

6 – Gala (GALA) – Ethereum Token For Crypto Gaming and Purchasing Digital Goods

Gala is one of the most promising cryptocurrencies under a dollar for metaverse and gaming. A notable partnership for this crypto project is Epic Games. As anyone who is into gaming will know, Epic is a notable brand in this industry.

The Gala project is developing Web 3.0 games and aims to reinvent the industry through decentralization, incentivization systems, and user ownership. As such, Gala is competing in the niche industry of ‘own-your-experience’ gaming.

Gala price

The platform has hundreds of titles in development and several already at various phases – from pre-sale to beta release. The aforementioned projects are anticipated to aid and accelerate value increases for GALA tokens.

With so many games in the pipeline, this is likely to be a good option for long-term investors looking for the best cryptocurrency under $1 to buy. At the time of writing, GALA has a market capitalization of just over $410 million and is a little less than $0.60 per coin.

Cryptoassets are a highly volatile unregulated investment product. 

7 – Enjin – (ENJ) – Ecosystem and Next-Gen Blockchain Gaming Launchpad

Decentralized platform Enjin makes it simple for developers to produce and exchange virtual assets. The native token of the ecosystem is ENJ. Enjin has discovered an application case in the creation of NFTs and the commercialization of resources inside the gaming industry.

Enjin and Atari, one of the biggest video game franchises globally, struck a deal to work together in the video gaming sector. As a result, characters are made profitable by being converted into tradable NFTs.

Enjin price

Enjin makes this feasible without necessitating a time-consuming effort on the part of game designers. The Enjin project is being embraced by asizable number of game creators. The ecosystem is expanding at a good pace, making it one of the best penny crypto assets to invest in right now.

This platform also has use cases in the auto industry, which includes a contract with BMW. Samsung and Microsoft also support Enjin. The market capitalization of ENJ is just $557 million as of writing.

Cryptoassets are a highly volatile unregulated investment product. 

8 – Shiba Inu (SHIB) – Most Promising Crypto With Large Community Support

Shiba Inu showed itself as one of the most popular crypto projects in early 2021. This was thanks to an outpour of support and endorsements from the crypto community and celebrities, as well as a meme coin craze. Its native token is SHIB, which is one of the best cryptocurrencies under $1.

However, this meme coin isn’t just a one-trick pony anymore. By introducing an NFT market and a token launchpad, developers have committed to growing the Shiba Inu ecosystem. Furthermore, SHIB developers launched an NFT marketplace in 2022 called King Shiba.

Shiba Inu price

The team has also created a metaverse called Shibarium, which is expected to be released in Q3 2022. The platform has also partnered with a range of eCommerce shops to broaden the use cases for SHIB.

Additionally, the burn rate for SHIB token prices has been raised. The team anticipates that these developments will propel SHIB and investor portfolios to previously heights. The market capitalization of SHIB at the time of writing is over $7.5 billion.

Cryptoassets are a highly volatile unregulated investment product. 

9 – Stellar (XLM) – Highly Decentralized and Well-Established Open-Source Payment Network

Another project to consider on our list of the best cryptocurrencies under $1 is XLM, the native token of Stellar. This is a highly decentralized payment network with open-source software. The Stellar project aims to completely transform the way money is transacted on a global scale.

The provision of crypto storage services and financial inclusion to reach the unbanked are two of its primary goals. Furthermore, Stellar was created with the common user and people in underdeveloped nations in mind.

Stellar price

The platform offers easy, rapid, and affordable transactions that provide users access to the global economy. All-in-all, Stellar is a reliable cryptocurrency project. It has a solid team behind it and addresses a significant issue in the real world, namely the exorbitant cost of sending money overseas.

Stellar also boasts several significant collaborations, including those with IBM, MoneyGram, and Circle. At the time of writing, XLM has a market capitalization of nearly $3 billion and is priced at less than $0.15.

Cryptoassets are a highly volatile unregulated investment product. 

10 – Algorand (ALGO) – FIFA’s Official Blockchain Platform With Multiple Use Cases

Algorand seeks to speed up transactions in the cryptocurrency sector. This project is a decentralized blockchain platform with many applications in the entertainment, banking, and sports industries. At $0.35 at the time of writing, it is the best cheap cryptocurrency to buy with multiple use cases.

There are countless application cases for its native token ALGO. There is a large number of companies already developing solutions on the Algorand platform, which usually bodes well for a crypto project in the long run.

For instance, Algorand stimulated the interest of investors after it entered into a deal with FIFA in May 2022. The partnership between FIFA and Algorand includes both sponsorship and technical components.

Algorand price

Algorand will provide FIFA with a wallet solution in addition to serving as the organization’s official blockchain platform. The press announcement states that Algorand will assist the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 across North America and Europe.

The Algorand blockchain network will also be named the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023 official sponsor. The increased exposure from this relationship could spark more interest from the general public and thus create gains for crypto traders. The market capitalization of ALGO at the time of writing is over $2.4 billion.

Is it Worth Investing in Crypto Under $1?

Whether or not it’s worth investing in crypto under $1 depends on the aspirations of each individual trader. That is to say, cryptocurrencies are highly volatile assets and therefore have a high level of risk attached.

That said, below we talk about some of the reasons investors might look to gain exposure to the best crypto under $1.

Buy Larger Amounts of Tokens

One reason investors decide to buy crypto under $1 is to purchase large amounts of a token they believe will make their long-term gains.

For example, if an investor has a budget of $100, they could opt to buy just a tiny fraction of a high-priced token like Bitcoin.

Alternatively, they might buy a hundred, or even a thousand, digital tokens from a penny crypto in the hope that it blows up and they make an attractive profit.

Earn Rewards and Win Prizes

Some of the best new crypto projects under $1 offer rewards, perks, or ways to earn a yield.

  • For instance, Battle Infinity offers multiple ways to earn and win rewards in the form of tokens that users can swap or sell.
  • In fact, everything within the Battle Infinity platform that is minted as an NFT is tradable within the ecosystem.

Great Way to Diversify Crypto Holdings and Limit Risk

By choosing the best crypto under $1, investors can buy digital currencies with a variety of applications. One of the guiding concepts of investing that helps lower a portfolio’s risk is diversification.

After all, risk management in this developing, turbulent market is crucial. Therefore, investing in cryptocurrency projects with various use cases or goals is a common approach to diversifying cryptocurrency holdings.

This is actually easier than it sounds, as there is such a wide variety of low-cap cryptos priced under $1. This was clear to see in our earlier analysis of the most promising crypto assets.

We included everything from fantasy sports blockchain games to meme crypto assets and payment networks.

Full Walkthrough of How to Buy Battle Infinity

As we talked about earlier, Battle Infinity is an innovative crypto gaming platform connected to the metaverse.

Those who want to get involved can buy IBAT via a presale campaign by following the instructions below

Step 1: Visit the Battle Infinity Platform

To see more information on what we’ve talked about today, head over to the Battle Infinity website.

This is where IBAT investors can find and get the project’s whitepaper for the ins and outs of its metaverse and gaming ecosystem.

Step 2: Buy BNB

Prior to investing in IBAT, it’s important to buy some BNB.

BNB is offered by many online trading platforms, however, the best place to complete the purchase is likely Binance.

When placing an order, ensure it is to buy 0.01 BNB or more as this is the minimum requirement in the Battle Infinity presale.

Step 3: get a Crypto Wallet

Those who don’t already have a wallet to store crypto will need to arrange that.

MetaMask is compatible with multiple blockchain networks and is trusted by more than 30 million users.

MetaMask

MetaMask is available as an extension on popular browsers like Chrome, Firefox, and Edge.

Alternatively, MetaMask can be installed on an Android or iOS smartphone via the relevant app store.

Step 4: Transfer BNB Tokens to Wallet

Once downloaded, the BNB coins purchased earlier need to be added to the MetaMask wallet.

At this point, the following information needs to be entered into the relevant fields:

  • Network Name: Smart Chain
  • New RPC URL: https://bsc-dataseed.binance.org/
  • ChainID: 56
  • Symbol: BNB
  • Block Explorer URL: https://bscscan.com

The BSc wallet address also needs to be copied over from the box that says ‘Account 1’.

Step 5: Connect the MetaMask Wallet to the Battle Infinity Platform

Go to the Battle Infinity website and look for the ‘Launch Presale Dashboard’ button.

At this point, the investor needs to select ‘Connect Wallet’

A pop-up will ask for confirmation on connecting the MetaMask wallet with the Battle Infinity platform. Confirm to proceed.

Step 6: Buy IBAT at the Presale Price

At this point, the investor can place an order to buy IBAT by swapping the BNB tokens they bought in Step 2.

First, enter the number of BNB tokens that will be exchanged.

As we touched on, the minimum presale investment is 0.1 BNB. This is the equivalent of 166666.66 IBAT as of writing.

Next, select ‘Buy IBAT’. When prompted, authorize the BNB/IBAT swap and the coins will be added to the Metamask wallet

Best Place to Buy Alternative Crypto Under $1

Some investors may prefer to access one of the many alternatives to the best crypto under $1 we’ve talked about today.

As such, below, we’ve reviewed the best online broker to make that happen.

Read on to find out about trading fees, features, and more.

eToro – Best Online Broker For Alternative Crypto Under $1

eToro logo

More than 25 million people use the eToro platform to trade. It is a highly regarded social trading website that offers a wide range of crypto assets at just a 1% commission. eToro is regulated by multiple financial bodies and offers a professional, fair, and transparent service.

The majority of the best cryptocurrencies under $1 we’ve discussed in this guide are also listed at this brokerage. US investors can place an order to buy cryptocurrencies from just $10 or more. As crypto assets like Dogecoin are under $1, investors can buy more than a hundred digital coins or more when meeting the minimum.

A paper trading account with $100,000 is available for all investors and the eToro cell phone app allows users to access the best crypto under $1 with little effort. One of eToro’s best features is the ability to mimic the buy and sell orders of a pro-investor to reduce the learning curve.

This is called Copy Trading and the minimum investment is $200. On the other hand, those who want an immediate and diverse portfolio of assets can check out the platform’s other passive investment tool – Smart Portfolios. These allow investors to gain exposure to a professionally managed basket of crypto assets via a single trade.

There are several payment methods available when financing an eToro account to purchase crypto under $1s. Credit/debit cards and e-wallets like Skrill, PayPal, and Neteller are supported. The account may also be funded via wire transfers and ACH.

Pros :

  • Buy crypto under $1 with low transparent fees
  • Free cell phone app
  • No fees on USD deposits
  • Smart Portfolios and Copy Trading to shorten the learning curve
  • The minimum investment is just $10

Cons

  • Perhaps not enough technical tools for advanced traders
  • Doesn’t Support MT4 or MT5

Your capital is at risk. Crypto asset investments are highly volatile and speculative. 68% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with this provider.

Conclusion

This guide has analyzed the best cryptocurrency to invest in 2022. Battle Infinity came out on top due to its innovative ecosystem which includes a fantasy sports title connected to the metaverse and NFTs.

Battle Infinity’s native token, IBAT, is available on presale at a great price for early investors. Head over to Battle Infinity and allocate as little as 0.1 BNB to get started today.

Killexams : Digital Twins: From Home Life To Healthcare

President and CTO of Brado, overseeing the company’s digital marketing, data science and NLP technology.

When charting the future of healthcare, it’s useful to understand the concept of digital twinning. Fortunately, most of us interact with a digital twin daily without knowing it. Let’s dig into the concept of digital twinning, explore how it’s already revolutionizing medicine and learn how healthcare leaders can embrace it to drive innovation in healthcare.

A Digital Twin In Daily Life

If you take a road trip and head toward an unfamiliar destination—whether cross country or across town—you’ll likely rely on the digital mapping technology on your smartphone. Set your destination, and you’re on your way. A map adjusts to your speed and location, and voice instructions let you know when to make the next turn or find the correct exit ramp.

Depending upon the mapping technology, you have even more useful options at your command. Your map may display traffic conditions and roadside stops for gas or food as well as precise measurements about the distance to travel and arrival times. You can share your locational and travel data with others to monitor your progress. Plus, you can access a satellite view of your trek with a quick command or tap to replicate what may be outside your vehicle’s window.

Is your trip real or virtual? Analog or digital? It’s both, really. The data that defines your trip—location, speed, destination, context—is real, but its digital representation allows it to be shared and analyzed and makes your trip more efficient, safer and less stressful.

Without this technological assistance, the journey may be circuitous, replete with trial and error. You may rely on hunches coupled with vague recollections or directions scrawled on the back of a paper napkin.

No doubt about it: Purposeful travel now is typically faster and safer than it once was. And much of the progress is due to the advent of what technologists (and others) now call a digital twin.

Defining A Digital Twin

The idea of a digital twin builds on many of the tools and concepts already in circulation. These include the ideas that have proved useful in design, prototyping and testing. In this way, digital twins are like mock-ups, 3-D models, simulators and virtual reality. But there’s more to it than just this.

A digital twin is an attempt to mirror a physical object. But a digital twin attempts to replicate a larger, more complex operating environment. Thus, it reflects not just the physical object but also the context in which it operates together with the actual processes of stimulus and response, cause and effect.

The connective thread in all this is a more-or-less continuous flow of data that defines and directs the overall system operations. Thus, IBM defines a digital twin as “an environment of linked data and models that reproduce an accurate, virtual representation of real-world entities and processes.”

Any given data-driven digital twin should be traceable to its analog source: the physical object that is being studied, tested or manipulated. Sensors, for example, may take continuous measures of the object’s activities and processes while also monitoring the characteristics of the larger environment and how the various elements interact, often anticipating what will happen next.

In this way, the twin is synchronized with a host of data streams and measurements that permit the accurate representation of real-world functions and outcomes. Thus, digital twins can facilitate simulations quickly and cheaply and without many of the attendant risks of failure and loss.

Meeting Your Digital Twin

Digital twinning got a big forward push through the advent of space travel and aeronautical engineering more generally. That momentum has continued as well with architecture, construction, and manufacturing. Indeed, virtual and physical realities now not only parallel but can also merge. One latest example: “Boeing wants to build its next plane in the ‘metaverse.’”

And now, digital twin applications are rapidly expanding into healthcare. Many of these projects are in their early stages, but it’s not too soon for you to stand up your own digital twin. Babylon Health, for example, aims to apply technologies like artificial intelligence and digital twinning to support practicing doctors, Strengthen healthcare access and even lower costs.

Enquiring minds may want to try out Babylon’s app to create your own unique, personalized digital twin. Not altogether different in look and feel from Google Maps, the representation of your digital twin on your device’s screen has a “layers” button to switch the view from organs to muscles to skeleton, just as you may switch from satellite to terrain to street-view on Maps.

Time To Double Down

Healthcare planners, practitioners and administrators already use digital twin technology to aid robotic surgery, accelerate precision medicine applications and manage inventories and complex supply chains.

Here are a few additional, more targeted applications.

Virtonomy offers “data-driven clinical trials on virtual patients.” Similarly, Unlearn.AI combines digital twin models with artificial intelligence and predictive analytics to accelerate the evaluation of clinical interventions. The University of Miami has recently announced a research project that proposes to use an individual’s digital twin to address sleep-loss problems.

Challenge Advisory is at work to apply twinning technology at the organizational level. They create the digital twin of a hospital, which facilitates the efficient and even optimal use of capacity, staff, services and other scarce resources.

• Twinning the human body is an ambitious long-term aim. Progress will focus on replicating and studying internal organs. Dassault’s Living Heart Project has been a pioneer in this area with its first virtual model of the human heart. Neurotwin wants to make a virtual copy of your brain.

The leaders charting the future of healthcare might consider embracing digital twin technology to capture a host of benefits. At the individual level, providers can use digital twins to virtually test and evaluate new treatment options. At the organization level, macro models of hospitals and organizations can guide resource allocation and processes to achieve optimal, cost-effective outcomes.

Financial Guidance

The following forward-looking statements reflect Amazon.com’s expectations as of July 28, 2022, and are subject to substantial uncertainty. Our results are inherently unpredictable and may be materially affected by many factors, such as uncertainty regarding the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, fluctuations in foreign exchange rates, changes in global economic conditions and customer demand and spending, inflation, regional labor market and global supply chain constraints, world events, the rate of growth of the Internet, online commerce, and cloud services, and the various factors detailed below. This guidance reflects our estimates as of July 28, 2022 regarding the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on our operations as well as the effect of other factors discussed above.

Third Quarter 2022 Guidance

  • Net sales are expected to be between $125.0 billion and $130.0 billion, or to grow between 13% and 17% compared with third quarter 2021. This guidance anticipates an unfavorable impact of approximately 390 basis points from foreign exchange rates.

  • This guidance assumes, among other things, that no additional business acquisitions, restructurings, or legal settlements are concluded.

A conference call will be webcast live today at 2:30 p.m. PT/5:30 p.m. ET, and will be available for at least three months at amazon.com/ir. This call will contain forward-looking statements and other material information regarding the Company’s financial and operating results.

These forward-looking statements are inherently difficult to predict. actual results and outcomes could differ materially for a variety of reasons, including, in addition to the factors discussed above, the amount that Amazon.com invests in new business opportunities and the timing of those investments, the mix of products and services sold to customers, the mix of net sales derived from products as compared with services, the extent to which we owe income or other taxes, competition, management of growth, potential fluctuations in operating results, international growth and expansion, the outcomes of claims, litigation, government investigations, and other proceedings, fulfillment, sortation, delivery, and data center optimization, risks of inventory management, variability in demand, the degree to which the Company enters into, maintains, and develops commercial agreements, proposed and completed acquisitions and strategic transactions, payments risks, and risks of fulfillment throughput and productivity. Other risks and uncertainties include, among others, risks related to new products, services, and technologies, system interruptions, government regulation and taxation, and fraud. In addition, global economic conditions and additional or unforeseen effects from the COVID-19 pandemic amplify many of these risks. More information about factors that potentially could affect Amazon.com’s financial results is included in Amazon.com’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), including its most latest Annual Report on Form 10-K and subsequent filings.

Our investor relations website is amazon.com/ir and we encourage investors to use it as a way of easily finding information about us.
