NextPlay Technologies, Inc. Announces Plans to Launch a New Class of Tokenized Medical Real Estate in Conjunction with NextPlay’s Extension into Medical Tourism

SUNRISE, FL, Oct 21, 2021 – (ACN Newswire) – NextPlay Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXTP) (the 'Company' or 'NextPlay'), a digital business ecosystem for consumers, digital advertisers, video gamers and travelers, announced today the plans to form the MedTrek Fund, which is expected to be a blockchain securitized closed-end fund. The fund once formed, is anticipated to seek to list on multiple regulated exchanges, subject to regulatory approval.

The Company has designed a new class of medical facilities that integrates unique geometries and technologies it believes will reduce the spread of infection.

According to a World Health Organization ("WHO") report in 2019, an estimated 7 percent of hospitalized patients in high-income countries and 10% of hospitalized patients in low- and middle-income countries will acquire one or more health care-associated infections ("HAIs") at any given time.

The new class of medical facilities, planned to be developed by the Fund, is expected to combine proprietary physical designs and technologies with the goal of protecting patients from the spread of infection and harm from physical intrusion.

The Company believes that the Fund, once formed, will have the ability to offer facilities designed to lower the likelihood of infection for four medical asset classes including primary care, tertiary care, long term care and resort convalescent facilities. The Fund is also expected to invest in wellness-oriented residential and commercial facilities that are integrated with the proposed physical and technological layers.

NextPlay is in discussions with prime landowners in several countries to contribute their property assets to the proposed Fund. These countries, including Thailand which had the world's largest share of medical tourism in 2019 (according to the Grandview Research report discussed below), have experienced significant declines in tourism due to COVID-19, but are expected to have robust medical tourism growth in the coming years. Additionally, NextPlay is also in discussions with certain medical service providers located around the world who are interested in offering services in facilities that resist infection spread, and offer a higher level of physical security.

The Fund's initial focus is expected to be Southeast Asia where we believe such facilities are most likely to benefit from expected growth in medical tourism. According to Grandview Research, the medical tourism market is expected to grow from $44.8 billion in 2019 to $207.9 billion by 2027, with Thailand currently having the largest market share.

Bill Kerby, co-CEO of NextPlay, stated, "The MedTrek Token is planned to be the first of several crypto-securitized alternative assets that we expect to issue through our FinTech division which includes our indirect ownership in Longroot Holding (Thailand) Company Limited. Through our efforts to date, we believe we have identified opportunities in medical tourism and its adjacencies. Leveraging on our partners' significant understanding of real estate development, we believe that we can help catalyze on the growth potential we see in medical tourism by using common sense design and the deployment of latest technologies including Internet of Things and Machine Learning."

The planned Fund discussed above has not been formed to date, and such formation and anticipated benefits and offerings, are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, and may not progress on the timeline as currently anticipated, or at all.

Eco Expo Asia opens on 27 October featuring latest green tech and products

HONG KONG, Oct 21, 2021 – (ACN Newswire) – Organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, and co-organised by the Environment Bureau of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government, the 16th edition of Eco Expo Asia will be held as a hybrid event, with physical and online exhibitions, for the first time. The physical exhibition will be held from 27 to 30 October at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC), while the online show will run from 27 October to 6 November.


Benjamin Chau (L), HKTDC Deputy Executive Director, shared the highlights of this year's Eco Expo Asia, while Owin Fung, Deputy Director of Environmental Protection Department, introduced the role and goals of the Department in co-organising the expo.

Expanded polystyrene (EPS) recycling specialist WIT Holdings will showcase its patented technology, which rapidly degrades EPS foam and recycles it into polystyrene raw material, in the "Waste Treatment and Recycling" zone.

The expo has added the "Green Finance and ESG-related services" element to provide green finance, sustainable development strategies, and environmental, social and governance (ESG) consulting services.


This year's expo has attracted more than 180 exhibitors. In addition to local exhibitors, Austria, Mainland China, France, Switzerland and Taiwan are either appointing local representatives to join the physical event or participating in the online show, while Canada, Japan and Sweden will set up group participation. This diverse collection of exhibitors will showcase a wide array of the latest environmental technologies and products to create a one-stop environmental protection business platform.

"Even though the pandemic has had a big impact on global economic activities, the environmental protection and green industries are showing considerable potential and are set to play an important role in sustainable economic development. More and more companies have been actively expanding their commitment to sustainable operations and environmental protection during the pandemic," said HKTDC Deputy Executive Director Benjamin Chau, speaking at a press conference held today to introduce highlights of the 2021 expo. "We hope the expo will continue to promote cooperation and exchange within the environmental protection sector and related industries to help companies grasp green business opportunities."

Owin Fung, Deputy Director of Environmental Protection Department of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, also spoke at the press conference, saying that he hoped the expo could support Hong Kong's Climate Action Plan 2050, announced by the Environment Bureau earlier this month, which sets out the vision of "Zero-carbon Emissions . Liveable City . Sustainable Development". The expo could help catalyse cooperation and exchange between the government and industry players, promote the huge green business opportunities in Asia, drive green procurement by business, and promote environmental education and a low-carbon lifestyle to the public, leading Hong Kong towards carbon neutrality.

HK Pavilion showcases waste-reduction, decarbonisation and energy-saving solutions

The Hong Kong Pavilion continues to be a focal point at the expo, with the participation and support of the Environment Bureau and eight departments of the HKSAR Government, along with various industry associations and enterprises. A total of 38 exhibitors will showcase waste-reduction, decarbonisation and energy-saving products and technologies from Hong Kong, and the pavilion will also highlight relevant government environmental protection policies.

Mr Chau said the green market in Hong Kong continues to develop. According to the HKSAR Government's Census and Statistics Department, the value added by Hong Kong's environmental industry rose from HK$7.9 billion in 2015 to HK$9.9 billion in 2019, representing a 25% increase over five years. Mainland China is also increasing its investment in the environmental industry with the 14th Five-Year Plan outlining the direction for energy saving. Last year, the mainland invested more than Rmb8.75 trillion in water conservation, environment and public facilities management, indicating the huge potential for environmental industries.

Nine thematic zones address needs of multiple industries

The theme of this year's expo is "Promoting Green Recovery for Carbon Neutrality". There are nine thematic zones, including "Green Transportation", "Green Buildings & Energy Efficiency", "Waste Treatment & Recycling" and "Eco-friendly Products". A new element, "Green Finance and ESG-related (Environmental, Social and Governance) Services", has been added while the "Startup" zone has once again attracted some of Hong Kong's innovative new companies to participate in the exhibition.

At the beginning of this year, the HKSAR Government announced the Roadmap on Popularisation of Electric Vehicles with a target to cease new registration of fuel-propelled private cars by 2035 or earlier. With electric vehicles now a fast-growing trend globally, the "Green Transportation" zone will display a variety of electric vehicles and related charging equipment, including electric scooters presented by Hong Kong Juhui Trading that are suitable for the express delivery of parcels and takeaway food. In addition, Cornerstone EV Charging Service will display electric vehicle charging equipment that optimises the power supply through a power load management system, bringing greater convenience for car park operators and users.

The "Waste Treatment and Recycling" zone has attracted numerous international and local large-scale environmental protection facility contractors to participate, with many first-time exhibitors showcasing innovative new technologies. Among them, WIT Holdings, which specialises in expanded polystyrene (EPS) recycling, will display its patented technology that rapidly degrades EPS foam and recycles it into polystyrene raw material. It can process more than 50 kilograms of EPS in just one hour.

Eco Asia Conference explores four major green issues

A key annual event at the expo, this year's Eco Asia Conference will be held on 27 and 28 October with industry leaders from around the world invited to share insights on a range of topics. The Ministry of Ecology and Environment of the People's Republic of China will elaborate on the policies and developments that can help achieve carbon neutrality in the mainland, while the Department of Ecology and Environment of Guangdong Province, the Ecology Environment Bureau of Shenzhen Municipality and the Environmental Protection Bureau of the Macao SAR Government will jointly discuss solid waste policies and management in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. In addition, experts from the United Kingdom and Austria will share their experiences on the implementation of "advancing net zero" in local buildings, while a representative from the European Union Office to Hong Kong and Macao will share their experience in moving to a local circular economy.

The importance of green finance has seen a sharp increase in recent years. The conference has invited senior representatives from the Securities and Futures Commission, the Financial Services and the Treasury Bureau, the Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited and the Hong Kong Green Finance Association to discuss how green finance can promote the development of the environmental protection industry. Environmental consultants and environmental project holders have also been invited to introduce green financial products, relevant certifications and practical suggestions for ESG reports.

Green Mart and Green Workshops on Public Day

Eco Expo Asia will open its doors to the public for free on the last day of the event (30 October) to encourage citizens to participate in environmental protection and promote green living. The Hong Kong Observatory will run a talk explaining the impact of climate change while the Water Supplies Department will host a session on the "Let's Save 10L Water 2.0" Campaign. The public can also shop at the Green Mart and join Green Workshops where participants will learn how to make a variety of green products.

In addition to the expo, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council is running six other trade exhibitions concurrently, including the HKTDC Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Autumn Edition), HKTDC International ICT Expo, electronicAsia, HKTDC Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition), HKTDC Hong Kong International Outdoor and Tech Light Expo and HKTDC Hong Kong International Medical and Healthcare Fair. Running several major fairs in tandem will generate synergies and create more business opportunities for exhibitors.

Expanded polystyrene (EPS) recycling specialist WIT Holdings will showcase its patented technology, which rapidly degrades EPS foam and recycles it into polystyrene raw material, in the “Waste Treatment and Recycling” zone.
The expo has added the “Green Finance and ESG-related services” element to provide green finance, sustainable development strategies, and environmental, social and governance (ESG) consulting services.

This year’s expo has attracted more than 180 exhibitors. In addition to local exhibitors, Austria, Mainland China, France, Switzerland and Taiwan are either appointing local representatives to join the physical event or participating in the online show, while Canada, Japan and Sweden will set up group participation. This diverse collection of exhibitors will showcase a wide array of the latest environmental technologies and products to create a one-stop environmental protection business platform.

“Even though the pandemic has had a big impact on global economic activities, the environmental protection and green industries are showing considerable potential and are set to play an important role in sustainable economic development. More and more companies have been actively expanding their commitment to sustainable operations and environmental protection during the pandemic,” said HKTDC Deputy Executive Director Benjamin Chau, speaking at a press conference held today to introduce highlights of the 2021 expo. “We hope the expo will continue to promote cooperation and exchange within the environmental protection sector and related industries to help companies grasp green business opportunities.”

Owin Fung, Deputy Director of Environmental Protection Department of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, also spoke at the press conference, saying that he hoped the expo could support Hong Kong’s Climate Action Plan 2050, announced by the Environment Bureau earlier this month, which sets out the vision of “Zero-carbon Emissions . Liveable City . Sustainable Development”. The expo could help catalyse cooperation and exchange between the government and industry players, promote the huge green business opportunities in Asia, drive green procurement by business, and promote environmental education and a low-carbon lifestyle to the public, leading Hong Kong towards carbon neutrality.

HK Pavilion showcases waste-reduction, decarbonisation and energy-saving solutions

The Hong Kong Pavilion continues to be a focal point at the expo, with the participation and support of the Environment Bureau and eight departments of the HKSAR Government, along with various industry associations and enterprises. A total of 38 exhibitors will showcase waste-reduction, decarbonisation and energy-saving products and technologies from Hong Kong, and the pavilion will also highlight relevant government environmental protection policies.

Mr Chau said the green market in Hong Kong continues to develop. According to the HKSAR Government’s Census and Statistics Department, the value added by Hong Kong’s environmental industry rose from HK$7.9 billion in 2015 to HK$9.9 billion in 2019, representing a 25% increase over five years. Mainland China is also increasing its investment in the environmental industry with the 14th Five-Year Plan outlining the direction for energy saving. Last year, the mainland invested more than Rmb8.75 trillion in water conservation, environment and public facilities management, indicating the huge potential for environmental industries.

Nine thematic zones address needs of multiple industries

The theme of this year’s expo is “Promoting Green Recovery for Carbon Neutrality”. There are nine thematic zones, including “Green Transportation”, “Green Buildings & Energy Efficiency”, “Waste Treatment & Recycling” and “Eco-friendly Products”. A new element, “Green Finance and ESG-related (Environmental, Social and Governance) Services”, has been added while the “Startup” zone has once again attracted some of Hong Kong’s innovative new companies to participate in the exhibition.

At the beginning of this year, the HKSAR Government announced the Roadmap on Popularisation of Electric Vehicles with a target to cease new registration of fuel-propelled private cars by 2035 or earlier. With electric vehicles now a fast-growing trend globally, the “Green Transportation” zone will display a variety of electric vehicles and related charging equipment, including electric scooters presented by Hong Kong Juhui Trading that are suitable for the express delivery of parcels and takeaway food. In addition, Cornerstone EV Charging Service will display electric vehicle charging equipment that optimises the power supply through a power load management system, bringing greater convenience for car park operators and users.

The “Waste Treatment and Recycling” zone has attracted numerous international and local large-scale environmental protection facility contractors to participate, with many first-time exhibitors showcasing innovative new technologies. Among them, WIT Holdings, which specialises in expanded polystyrene (EPS) recycling, will display its patented technology that rapidly degrades EPS foam and recycles it into polystyrene raw material. It can process more than 50 kilograms of EPS in just one hour.

Eco Asia Conference explores four major green issues

A key annual event at the expo, this year’s Eco Asia Conference will be held on 27 and 28 October with industry leaders from around the world invited to share insights on a range of topics. The Ministry of Ecology and Environment of the People’s Republic of China will elaborate on the policies and developments that can help achieve carbon neutrality in the mainland, while the Department of Ecology and Environment of Guangdong Province, the Ecology Environment Bureau of Shenzhen Municipality and the Environmental Protection Bureau of the Macao SAR Government will jointly discuss solid waste policies and management in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. In addition, experts from the United Kingdom and Austria will share their experiences on the implementation of “advancing net zero” in local buildings, while a representative from the European Union Office to Hong Kong and Macao will share their experience in moving to a local circular economy.

The importance of green finance has seen a sharp increase in recent years. The conference has invited senior representatives from the Securities and Futures Commission, the Financial Services and the Treasury Bureau, the Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited and the Hong Kong Green Finance Association to discuss how green finance can promote the development of the environmental protection industry. Environmental consultants and environmental project holders have also been invited to introduce green financial products, relevant certifications and practical suggestions for ESG reports.

Green Mart and Green Workshops on Public Day

Eco Expo Asia will open its doors to the public for free on the last day of the event (30 October) to encourage citizens to participate in environmental protection and promote green living. The Hong Kong Observatory will run a talk explaining the impact of climate change while the Water Supplies Department will host a session on the “Let’s Save 10L Water 2.0” Campaign. The public can also shop at the Green Mart and join Green Workshops where participants will learn how to make a variety of green products.

In addition to the expo, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council is running six other trade exhibitions concurrently, including the HKTDC Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Autumn Edition), HKTDC International ICT Expo, electronicAsia, HKTDC Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition), HKTDC Hong Kong International Outdoor and Tech Light Expo and HKTDC Hong Kong International Medical and Healthcare Fair. Running several major fairs in tandem will generate synergies and create more business opportunities for exhibitors.

Zeronauts Assessment Platform Goes Live in Q4 2021

Wil, Switzerland, Oct 20, 2021 – (ACN Newswire) – Recently, Zeronauts has launched the beta tester program for their crypto assessment platform. The official platform will go live at the end of Q4/2021.

Zeronauts is the first crypto review platform from the crypto community for the community with a focus on sustainability. The Swiss crypto project Zeronauts emerges as a leader and pioneer in creating a more sustainable crypto market. Based on the crypto token ZNS, it pursues the vision of bringing ecological and social responsibility to crypto.

The challenge of an unsustainable crypto market

The team behind Zeronauts has recognized the issue that the concept of sustainability has been strongly neglected in crypto. The crypto market is known for fraud, pump and dump schemes and the high energy consumption of Bitcoin. 98% of cryptos that were created during the crypto bubble between 2016 and 2018 do not exist anymore. Most projects were scams or colossal failures. Unfortunately, the negative image of crypto also hits long-term valuable crypto projects that have found a way to use the Blockchain technology in a meaningful way.

In this market circle, it is about time that investors can easily differentiate between long-term promising or in other words sustainable crypto tokens and unsustainable ones.

How Zeronauts transforms the crypto industry

This is where Zeronauts enters the game. Zeronauts builds a community-based rating platform for cryptos. Different to other rating platforms, Zeronauts uses scientific methodologies that consider economic, social and ecological factors to rate cryptos. There is a clear focus on assessing the long-term success of crypto tokens. To scale the Zeronauts rating platform quickly, it uses a unique approach to involve the whole crypto community to write assessments. ZNS transaction fees are used to reward community members for their service of writing crypto ratings. As Zeronauts grows, this can become extremely lucrative for token auditors. All assessments are reviewed by the Zeronauts team before they are uploaded to the assessment platform to guarantee a high-quality standard. With this approach, Zeronauts aims to become the largest crypto rating platform in a short time period.

Zeronauts searches beta testers for their assessment platform. Interested crypto community members can register for the “Become a Zeronaut” program: Become a Zeronaut – Zeronauts. The assessment platform goes live in Q4/2021.

The Zeronauts labels – a unique and meaningful NFT use case

Based on the rating platform, Zeronauts introduces sustainability NFT labels to the crypto market. This allow investors to identify very easily sustainable crypto tokens. They do not waste time and money on one of the many existing scams.

Crypto projects can request an audit of their token for a fee. When their token meets the Zeronauts sustainability standards, they earn a Zeronauts NFT label.

Zeronauts implements a label tier system with bronze, silver, gold and a diamond labels. As the labels are NFTs, they are stored on a blockchain, where everyone can verify the label authenticity.

Part of the audit fee is directly reinvested into the ZNS token. That means, the more assessments are written, the higher the ZNS price will be. This makes the ZNS token also extremely interesting for investors.

Zeronauts mission to become the central authority for a sustainable crypto movement

Sustainability is a clear trend in the crypto market and will become much more important in the future. Especially with stronger regulations, there is a high need for differentiating between sustainable and non-sustainable crypto tokens.

Building a fast growing and highly active assessment platform is the first important milestone for the Zeronauts project. The project team has a clear vision that even the largest crypto tokens will strive for a Zeronauts label to proudly show their efforts in building a sustainable token.

Yet, the Zeronauts project will not stop there. Long-term goals include building the Zeronauts DEX, a decentralized and sustainable exchange platform as well as a learning platform with focus on sustainability.

About Zeronauts

The work done by Zeronauts is one of a kind. The team behind Zeronauts are Swiss blockchain enthusiasts who share the passion for the crypto universe. Driven for something bigger than themselves, with great commitment, revolutionary thinking and team spirit, they are up to revolutionize the crypto space and make it much more sustainable. The company incorporation will take place at the beginning of next year.
