Kingdom Financial Ministries announces the release of Donald A. Galades newest book, Awoken: Conspiracy or Theory? It will be free and available for download from the Amazon Kindle Store.

How an elite group asserts dominance and control of every aspect of your life, including your afterlife. Individual freedoms are sacrificed for the so-called greater good. A New World Order crushes dissidents. This select group has the power to shape the future of humanity.

What if all conspiracy theories you have heard for decades were not only true, but were all connected? What if you were told the creation of this New World Order required the participation, knowingly or not, of every former U.S. President and World Leader since 1900?

What if proof existed that all secret societies like the Illuminati, Freemasons, and Skull and Bones, were used by Satan and his Antichrist? Who is this Antichrist? When will he appear? Where will he come from? Even those who do not know Jesus Christ, know of the Antichrist. As the worlds nuclear superpowers sail their armadas to the Middle East, is the stage set for WW3? Is this where we will see the revealing of the Antichrist?

There will come a descendant of Mohammad who will be loved by the entire world. Even the elect will view him as a peaceful, charismatic world leader, initially. As he arrives on a white horse, the Suni Muslims will know him as the Muslim Christ. The Shiite Muslims will know him as the Mahdi. Christians know him as the Antichrist.

This is a must-read for believers and non-believers alike. Together, let us discover, who woke the church?

Dons first book In God We Trust; The Dollar We Worship became an International Best-Seller on Amazon. He also wrote a financial basics book called: 5 Steps, Your Guide to Financial Health Both are available on Amazon.

Forsyth International Hong Kong Study Reveals Bitcoin Ownership Rates

More than half of existing Bitcoin investors started investing recently, and interest among female investors has increased, indicating greater public acceptability and rising demand

8 Connaught Place, Hong Kong S.A.R – WEBWIRE

Forsyth International Hong Kong (ISIN: HK0234892310), a trusted partner to individuals, wealth managers, family offices, investment managers and institutions in navigating cryptocurrency, a company that develops funds, indexes, insight, and other services, is pleased to announce the release of the Bitcoin Investment Study, the firms annual report on investor perceptions and behaviors towards bitcoin. The analysis shows that adoption, interest, and knowledge of Bitcoin and the wider digital currency ecosystem are all continuing to expand.

The study comprises the following findings:

  • Over 25% of questioned investors already own Bitcoin;
  • More than 55% of investors expressed interest in investing in Bitcoin, which is a significant rise compared to previous years;
  • Over 50% of those who currently own Bitcoin started investing within the past year;
  • Interest in Bitcoin investment products rose significantly among female investors.

The findings of the Bitcoin Investment Study support the notion that more investors are beginning to understand the long-term benefits of including Bitcoin and other digital currencies in their investment portfolios. Although it is great to see perceptions about cryptocurrencies continuing to change, this business is still in its development.
All of us have a responsibility to keep working to educate the investing public so that investors of all ages and backgrounds may take advantage of this once-in-a-generation opportunity, mentioned Chum Yip Zihao, Head of Research Department at Forsyth International Hong Kong.

According to the study, more than half of respondents view Bitcoin as a long-term investment potential for a diversified investment plan, which shows that investors are now three times as likely to view cryptocurrency as a store of value investment rather than a currency.

Gathers together global fine wine, cultivates new market opportunities

The HKTDC’s Deputy Executive Director Sophia Chong said: “The 15th Wine & Spirits Fair featured more than 500 exhibitors from 17 countries and regions, where wine sellers and buyers come together again and buyers were keen to source products. Public Day today was also well received, and members of the public enjoyed the wine tasting experience and had fruitful purchases.

“In recent years, Chinese wines have risen in popularity and brought new momentum to the Chinese market. We incorporated these elements in the fair, bringing products from Sichuan, Ningxia and Xinjiang, offering more options for buyers. The HKTDC also held various seminars where industry professionals could explore opportunities in the Chinese wine market. Meanwhile, the global hot topic of sustainable development has also been addressed by the wine industry, as vintners make wines by greener means. Organic wines were also showcased in the fair, creating a sparkling new wave of purchasing trends.”

Eric Fung, Director (Hong Kong) of Japanese exhibitor Flavour of Life G.K., stated: “The wine fair has attracted a significant number of international buyers and is undoubtedly the most important wine trade fair in Hong Kong. We are very pleased with the quality of buyers, most of whom come from Southeast Asia, including India, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. These are high-potential markets for sake. We have also had buyers from Africa, particularly Nigeria, which is an extremely promising market. If it weren’t for participating in this event, we would not have had the opportunity to connect with them.” His firm had established about 25 new connections at the fair, with two or three being high-potential buyers.

Emerging demand for non-alcoholic wines

Gary Lee, the Business Development Director of San Sesan Global Pte Ltd, a buyer from Singapore, said his firm’s primary objective at the event was to source vegan and alcohol-free wines, with a specific focus on products from Spain and Germany. He welcomed the Click2Match platform, which facilitated meeting scheduling and record-keeping. Mr Lee joined 20 business matchmaking sessions, engaging with eight exhibitors offering vegan and alcohol-free wines. “These meetings were highly effective, and I identified several exhibitors with significant potential. There is a good chance that I will place orders with two of them, and each deal we make is typically valued at approximately US$300,000.”

Virginia Cikhita, the CEO of Project X and a buyer from Indonesia, visited the fair to source fine wines and accompaniments. She stated: “We have a great opportunity to order from a Hong Kong exhibitor at least 2,000 bottles of black truffle sauce imported from Finland. We also hope to buy custom water bottles from a Taiwanese exhibitor, as well as at least 3,000 boxes of hangover prevention pills. These products are truly excellent!” She was pleased with the services, including providing e-Badges for buyers, the Click2Match platform, and the new Scan2Match platform that conveniently connects buyers and exhibitors from offline to online.

The fair featured 36 exciting events, including the seminar Baijiu Journey: Savouring the Flavours of China and two Wine Industry Conferences, one of which featured the sole Chinese Master Sommelier in the world, Lu Yang, discussing wine market opportunities in China and Asia. In addition to informative seminars for industry professionals, Public Day featured engaging events such as wine tasting sessions, attracting enthusiastic participation from buyers and visitors, creating a vibrant atmosphere.
