Xerafy’s RFID Oil Pipe Tracking Solution at PetroChina’s Xinjiang Oilfield (Source: Xerafy)

China's second-largest oil producer aims to improve safety, efficiency with Xerafy's RFID pipeline tracking solutions.

SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE, July 11, 2018 / — Xerafy, the global leader transforming industries and lives through innovation and data, has announced that PetroChina, China's second largest oil and gas producer, will use its rugged RFID tags to track oil pipe assets at its Xinjiang Oilfield.

The project will start the deployment with 4,000 Xerafy Dot Wedge RFID tags on oil pipelines at Xinjiang and will use up to 100,000 tags per year over the next five years to improve the pipeline asset and lifecycle management, reduce costs and non-productive time in critical processes as well as risks related to pipeline failures.

PetroChina is a subsidiary of the state-owned China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) headquartered in Beijing. It is China's second biggest oil producer, and one of the most profitable companies in all of Asia. The oilfield in Xinjiang is the largest one in western China, mainly engaging in the exploration, development, gathering transportation and sales of oil and gas resources in the Junggar Basin and its surrounding basins.

With the advanced use of RFID technology, PetroChina can ensure their operations are less likely to be disrupted by delays or an unexpected failure while also improving oilfield safety and compliance. The automated tracking and real-time data also help PetroChina manage the correct pipe tally and integrity in a drill string, and enables them to better govern their maintenance and inspection processes.

The Xerafy Dot Wedge tags were developed specifically to withstand the harsh conditions present in oil and gas industry deployments. The UHF tags have a read range up to 1 meter (3.3 ft.) embedded in metal, and are IP68-rated against dirt and fluids. The tags were designed to withstand extreme heat and cold, as well as exposure to drilling fluids and hydraulic fluids. The Dot Wedge tags are also UV-resistant and can survive immersion in sea water.

"RFID provides significant improvements over the traditional paper-based practice which is time consuming and error-prone," said Mr. Zhang, General Manager of Zhongshi Bangli Petroleum Technology Company, the partner company that is deploying the solution. "Fast and accurate tracking is critical for ensuring operational efficiency and timely maintenance, and Xerafy’s RFID solution delivers."

"There is a lot of activity on a daily basis to track and maintain the pipe assets, and there is an increasing need and urgency for better tracking and real time traceability," said Dennis Khoo, Xerafy founder and CEO. "Xerafy is committed to connecting industries such as PetroChina, and offering tailored RFID tag solutions to help their Xinjiang facility achieve traceability for their assets and operations."

About PetroChina:
PetroChina Company Limited (“PetroChina”) is the largest oil and gas producer and distributor, playing a dominant role in the oil and gas industry in China. It is not only one of the companies with the biggest sales revenue in China, but also one of the largest oil companies in the world.

About Xerafy:
Xerafy enables real-time traceability and asset management in Healthcare, Oil & Gas and Manufacturing. We lead in RFID innovations for demanding environments and redefine the market expectations for durable and reliable performance. Xerafy is headquartered in Singapore with offices in the U.S., U.K. and China.

Industry best noise cancelling, speech recognition microphone

Pocket sized sound-booth

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 11, 2018 / — Yes, that’s right, Environmental Protection Agency Chief Scott Pruitt spent $43,000 taxpayer dollars on a private sound booth for his office, complete with silenced ventilation and "noise-lock" paneling to keep conversations from being overheard. Subsequently he lost his job. Had he only known about Stenomask.

Stenomask works precisely the same way as the world’s premiere sound booths except in pocket-sized form and at a fraction of the price. Stenomask guarantees absolute voice privacy and a crystal-clear sound signal while simultaneously eliminating all background noise. It includes silenced ventilation and noise lock paneling identical to Mr. Pruitt's full sized booth and is compatible with all modern devices including computers, smartphones and tablets. Wherever there is a microphone input, you can use Stenomask.

Don’t be a Pruitt, save yourself a bundle, keep your job and talk privately anywhere you want.

GuardianCoin Inc. assists EOS and Block Producers Identify and Overcome Security Vulnerabilities from Testnet to MainNet

GuardianCoin Inc. uses GuardianCoin Network Overwatch to assist EOSIO Block Producers Identify and Overcome Security Vulnerabilities from Testnet to MainNet

Without claiming bug bounties, the GuardianCoin team helped make the EOS Mainnet launch with much more secure than the community may realize.”

— David Moss, formerly Senior Vice President, Tech Operations at Block.One.

GEORGE TOWN, GRAND CAYMAN, CAYMAN ISLANDS, July 10, 2018 / — Guardian Coin Inc. ( which, later this year will launch a hard fork of EOS that is encrypted and anonymous with government-grade security, today announced that it has been working closely with Block One's EOSIO and the Block Producers to identify security vulnerabilities on the EOS MainNet.

GCI utilized a beta version of its GuardianCoin Network Overwatch, a continuous assessment capability for blockchain and network vulnerabilities, to assess the EOS TestNets, Block Producers, and the MainNet for over 155,000 potential threats. GuardianCoin Network Overwatch tested these assets against 14 international security standards, including PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry – Data Security Standard).

GCI identified 220 security vulnerabilities on the EOS Dawn 4.0 TestNet. For each vulnerability, GCI provided the mitigation methodology or remediation fix. As a result, 162 vulnerabilities were eliminated by the launch of EOS MainNet, 51 additional vulnerabilities were subsequently eliminated, and the remaining seven vulnerabilities are in the process of final remediation.

"The efficiency of hunting the network vulnerabilities and the simplicity of the remediation steps allowed the community to reduce operational risk fast. The capability and team at GuardianCoin are very impressive," said Tim Lewis of LibertyBlock and Ikigai Fund.

"Without claiming bug bounties, the GuardianCoin team helped make the EOS Mainnet much more secure than the community may realize," said David Moss, formerly Senior Vice President, Tech Operations at Block.One.

Christo Boshoff, Co-Head of GuardianCoin Network Overwatch said: "The community should not confuse vulnerabilities with inevitable bugs working their way through the code, as bugs can often affect the operational performance of a blockchain but may not equate to a security risk. Conversely, bug-free code can still contain serious security vulnerabilities."

Blockchain is still in the early stages of development and can often lack the rigorous security testing associated with more mature markets. GuardianCoin's assessment goes beyond best-in-class commercial to testing expected in the most sensitive areas of government.

This press release is not intended to be and shall not be construed as the offer or sale of securities by GCI, including the offer or sale of securities within the United States. GCI may not offer or sell securities within the United States absent registration under U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. Any public offering by GCI of securities within the United States will be by means of a prospectus that may be obtained by GCI that will contain detailed information about GCI and management, as well as financial statements.

About Guardian Coin Inc.
GCI is a technology company that provides leading-edge solutions for security and privacy. In 2018, GCI will launch the GuardianCoin Network, the world's first genuinely secure and scalable 3rd Generation Blockchain ensuring the privacy of transactions, the security of holdings and the anonymity of payments and messages at scale.

GCI intends for its network to become the first truly secure 3rd Generation blockchain alternative to Bitcoin, Ethereum, EOS and other digital tokens, through the fusion of four critical capabilities: A scalable, secure and decentralized 3rd Generation blockchain architecture; Military-grade encryption for transactions; Cryptographic anonymity for payments and messages; and An environment supporting the creation of dApps with security and privacy at their core.

GCI will deliver critically needed solutions to the enterprise and government markets, which are massive, under-served, and urgently require an advanced, security-first blockchain solution.
