Brooklyn, United States - February 13, 2018 /NewsNetwork/ —

Current Media has announced a revolutionary new streaming platform powered by Blockchain technology. By consolidating popular media networks into one place, Current already provides more than 200,000 users with a more convenient search and discovery experience. The platform allows users to be rewarded for streaming content from their favorite networks.

Using Current, users can stream content from Spotify, YouTube, SoundCloud, and more, and get rewarded for it. Users are able to get paid to stream their content with an all in one personalized experience.

Current, which counts tech heavyweight Mark Cuban among its initial investors, is creating a digital token that uniquely rewards a person’s time, money spent, and data shared during the media streaming experience. Once tokens have been earned, they can be spent on a range of products, services and in-platform advertising.

The platform combines behavioral data points surrounding the types, times and topics played by each person across multiple networks. This allows for better recommendations than what is available on any single network on its own.

Current recently elected to cancel its upcoming public token sale because they claim to have already received the equivalent of $150 Million USD worth of interest from private backers looking to participate in the private sale. “The amount of interest in our token sale has been nothing short of extraordinary,” Current co-founder and CEO Dan Novaes said in a public statement.

One of the primary benefits of the system is the fact that it’s powered by Blockchain technology. This ensures that there is fully transparent accounting, allowing for an instant valuation of time, data and attention.

The Current ecosystem is designed to evolve over time and will continue to provide the best streaming platform for its users. Current is the next generation of media streaming and consolidates the best content and features from the most popular media networks in an all-in-one experience.

Current states that: “The protocol rewards people for their time streaming, ad impressions and personal data shared. Launching initially on the Current platform, the protocol will open for developers and third-party providers to utilize.”

Anyone can earn CRNC, as it’s a simple, easy process whereby participants stream their favorite content through the Current Platform.

Full details of the platform and the launch can be found on the URL above.

China cutting auto import taxes as of July 1

May 22, 2018

BEIJING — China said Tuesday it will reduce auto import duties effective July 1 following pledges to buy more U.S. goods and end restrictions on foreign ownership in the industry. President Xi Jinping promised the changes in April amid mounting pressure from Washington to narrow China's multibillion-dollar trade surplus with the United States, though Chinese spokespeople said they had nothing to do with that dispute. The Finance Ministry said charges for many imported vehicles will be cut from 25 percent to 15 percent to promote development of the Chinese industry and increase availability of goods for consumers. That still would...

May 22, 2018

MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine president told drug suspects in a central province Tuesday to look for a way to get arrested and then stay in jail if they want to live longer, in his latest threat in his bloody anti-drug crackdown. President Rodrigo Duterte did not identify the targets of his warning in a televised threat-laden speech, but referred to people who grew rich through illegal drugs in Cebu province. "You know if I were you guys in Cebu, stay in jail. You want to live longer? Stay in jail," Duterte said. "Look for your own reason to be...

Airlines caving to Beijing despite White House protest

May 22, 2018

SHANGHAI — Global airlines are obeying Beijing's demands to refer to Taiwan explicitly as a part of China, despite the White House's call this month to stand firm against such "Orwellian nonsense." The Associated Press found 20 carriers, including Air Canada, British Airways and Lufthansa, that now refer to Taiwan, the self-ruled island that Beijing considers Chinese territory, as a part of China on their global websites. There are just three days left for dozens of foreign airlines to decide whether to comply with Beijing's orders, or face consequences that could cripple their China business, including legal sanctions. Many have...

May 22, 2018

HONG KONG — Thousands of local residents and tourists flocked to an outlying island in Hong Kong on Tuesday to celebrate a local bun festival despite recording-breaking heat. The festival features a parade with children dressed as deities floated on poles. Later on Tuesday, contestants were to take part in a bun-scrambling competition. They will race up a 14-meter (46-foot) bamboo tower to snatch as many plastic buns as possible. Buns that are higher up are worth more points. It is one of the oldest and most colorful festivals in Hong Kong and started about a hundred years ago after...

China wants Australian 'concrete actions' to improve ties

May 22, 2018

BEIJING — China on Tuesday called for "concrete actions" from Australia to improve ties following tensions over Beijing's anger with recent political moves by Canberra. The terse remarks by Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang followed a meeting between Foreign Minister Wang Yi and his Australian counterpart, Julie Bishop, that produced markedly different responses from the two sides. Lu quoted Wang as telling Bishop that Australia needed to "take off tinted glasses (and) see China's development from a positive perspective" if it really wanted to get relations back on track. "Tinted glasses" is Chinese diplomatic shorthand for what it sees as...
