Firstrade Donates Pallets Of Bottled Water To Support Hurricane Ian Relief Efforts



Orlando, Florida–(Newsfile Corp. – October 26, 2022) – Hurricane Ian made landfall west of Fort Myers, Florida on September 28 as a Category-4 storm, causing many fatalities and catastrophic damage to cities in its path. In the aftermath, many Florida residents experienced displacement, flooding, power outages and damage to their homes.

Firstrade worked closely with the area’s main bottled water distributor, Blue Triton, and the largest church in Fort Myers (First Assembly of God – an official relief distribution center) to reach distressed communities in the Fort Myers area and supply them with 23 pallets of drinkable water.

“The West Coast cities such as Fort Myers were devastated. In the first three days of the aftermath, we were unable to reach any agency, hospital, news media, or even local first responders to learn how we could help. We saw on the news that there was no supply of bottled water for miles around Fort Myers and urgent requests for donations were going unmet-so we took matters into our own hands.”

“Working directly with the local community enabled us to cut through the red tape and normal delays that occur in a crisis to get the relief to the affected communities sooner,” said Jeff Huang, CIO of Firstrade.

The staff at Blue Triton were so moved that they worked around the clock to locate supplies for Firstrade. On the day of delivery, a total of 23 pallets were delivered instead of 11 pallets that were expected.

The cleanup and restoration process is expected to take some weeks, however Firstrade will continue to support the Florida community during these testing times. The new Orlando FL branch and aforementioned support to the Floridian community is the start of continued initiatives in the state, to help the community get back on its feet after the devastation brought by Ian.

COTI V2 changing private play on blockchain via encrypted circuit




COTI V2 is revolutionizing blockchain technology with private play through encrypted circuits, offering enhanced speed and efficiency. Currently, the Genesis builder network is live, and the company is inviting developers to join their program. The network supports private play upgrades for Ethereum.

As a privacy-focused Ethereum layer 2 solution, COTI V2 employs advanced encryption technology and encrypted circuits, enabling operations on all devices without compromising personal data.

The primary goal of COTI V2, as outlined in its whitepaper, is to address private play issues on blockchains. Developers can protect privacy through encrypted circuits. The COTI V2 Devnet provides a user-friendly, connectible EVM space (gcEVM) using the Solidity programming language.

Additionally, the COTI V2 network offers developers tools for privacy play with TypeScript and Python SDKs, along with EVM RPC, documentation, a faucet, an explorer, and Hardhat.

COTI has received positive feedback from Civic, a provider of Web3 identification toolkits.

The COTI Foundation plans to launch a privacy-focused growth fund, the ABC Growth Fund, allocating 400 million COTI tokens to provide real-time privacy services.

Developers using the COTI V2 builder network can explore use cases such as confidential DeFi, private payment transactions, stablecoins and RWAs, on-chain data control, confidential AI and machine learning, and decentralized identity recognition.

According to COTI CEO Shahaf Bar-Geffen, the COTI V2 builder and developer program is now available to the public, inviting developers to join the network.
