GUESTS:

Everett Peaden SHAREHOLDER Mergers & Acquisitions; Business Law; Taxation; Estate Planning & Wealth Management

"I want to help my clients achieve their goals and attain the best possible results given their unique circumstances."

Business and Tax. Rett’s practice focuses on helping the owners of closely-held businesses and professional services firms exit their businesses, whether that involves selling the business or transferring it to the next generation. Getting a business onto a solid footing with regard to succession planning is essential, and Rett is well-versed in sophisticated tax strategies and entity structuring techniques that may be needed. He will also advise on and guide clients through strategic acquisitions to grow their own businesses. Rett regularly counsels clients on corporate, partnership, and related tax-planning matters, including the negotiation and preparation of mergers and acquisitions agreements, the drafting of shareholders agreements, the formation of limited partnerships and limited liability companies, the structuring of inbound investment opportunities for foreign nationals, the creation and operation of private foundations and public charities, and the review and drafting of executive compensation agreements. In connection with advising the owners of closely-held businesses, Rett has developed a particular interest in the taxation of pass-through entities such as S-Corporations, partnerships, and trusts.

Preserving legacy. The estate planning side of the practice, often done for the owners of closely held businesses, is highly personal, involving an individual’s legacy and the achievements of a lifetime. Rett’s purpose is to help his clients prepare for the future, provide for their families, and accomplish their long-term personal and charitable goals. In doing so, he works to develop plans that are well thought out and emphasize preserving wealth from unnecessary taxes and unanticipated risks. He knows how to take family dynamics into account, and draws insights from his work in business exit-planning and trust and estate administration to help families plan with foresight to avoid problems that could happen later on. Rett is often called upon by other professionals to advise them on the complicated income and transfer tax issues that can arise in the context of trusts and estates. On the trust and estate administration side of the practice, Rett works in both contested and uncontested matters. He assists survivors in managing their inherited wealth, and often continues to serve their families and family businesses as a trusted advisor on the basis of the confidence he inspires in them.

Justin Hackney, Vice President of Sales Edevate

We provide affordable education programs for organizations wishing to recruit, develop, and retain great talent.

MOOCS & SO MUCH MORE Massive Open Online Courses (“MOOCS”) offer a revolutionary low cost methodology for the dissemination of learning and by flipping their institution-centric model and creating unique value-added services Edevate has evolved the diverse universe of MOOCS and other “Open Education Resources” into a powerful user-centric, institution-agnostic credentialing platform.

EDUCATIONAL ALCHEMY™ We are acquiring knowledge from the moment that we are born. Some of that knowledge is imparted through traditional “education” but much is acquired through less formalistic experiences such as workplace learning and unassessed training programs. In the past there was no methodology by which all of our learning could be collated, assessed and effectively harnessed and Edevate is the first comprehensive curator of learning experiences whether MOOCS, traditional courses (online or on campus), employment based training & experience or formal assessments of prior learning.

While learning for its own sake is a noble pursuit most students pursue education in order to achieve career or other life goals. By providing a Universal TranscriptTM of a user’s achievements and documenting skills acquired Edevate provides a game-changing advantage in seeking employment or advancement. Edevate users can acquire and document the exact skills that they need to qualify for in-demand career opportunities and an Edevate transcript includes a unique skill-set inventory providing an invaluable tool not only for employment purposes but also for educational credentialing.

ASSESSMENT & CREDIT Edevate provides efficient low cost skill assessments used and accepted by tens ofthousands of employers worldwide. By combining free MOOCS and OERs with these proprietary assessments users acquire valuable industry-focused, competency-based credentials to advance their career or stay current in fast moving industries.

Through a partnership with Excelsior College, users can leverage MOOCS and OERs to study for 30+ college-credit assessments administered at Pearson Testing Centers worldwide all certified for transfer to over 2,000 colleges and universities by the American Council for Education (ACE).

And, as a bonus, up to 25% of the credit required for a degree can be earned through documentation of prior learning experiences!

By combining these resources with other assessment-based credits such as AP examinations, CLEP and DANTES, students can start or finish a degree program or even earn an entire degree tuition & debt free. Through Edevate, users can convert learning and experience into a degree or other valuable assessed and accredited credential, truly: “Educational Alchemy”!

http://cointelegraph.com/news/overstock-after-byrne-will-it-remain-bitcoin-friendly

http://cointelegraph.com/news/a-coin-of-independence-scotlands-own-cryptocurrency-vs-british-pound

Temple Melville, Scotcoin’s majority holder, discusses the future of a cryptocurrency designed for the Scottish people. In late 2015, a major pub in Glasgow started accepting Scotcoinpayments for pints.

ScotcoinCT r: 220, a cryptocurrency created by Derek Nisbet, meant to serve as a currency for Scotland as an alternative to the British Pound, rose into prominence before Scotland’s referendum for independence from the United Kingdom. Rather than fading away after the “no” vote, ScotcoinCT r: 221 has continued to rise in the cryptocurrency charts since.

CoinTelegraph spoke to Temple Melville, majority holder of Scotcoin, about the past, present, and future of the regional cryptocurrency.

CoinTelegraph: What prompted the creation of Scotcoin?

Temple Melville: The history is that a man called Derek Nisbet, in the run up to the Scottish Referendum in 2014, saw the need for a Scottish currency, as distinct from a UK or English currency, and created Scotcoin as a Country based crypto currency. Of course, crypto knows no borders, and there has been lots of take up outside Scotland. Subsequently, he moved the coin to Counterparty, where it remains to this day

CT: What target user was originally in mind?

TM: Originally the idea was that, rather like Iceland, everyone within the country would get an amount free and be able to use them. Iceland's experiment lost it's way because there were/are practically speaking hardly any places to actually use their coin. This is something we are determined to avoid, and have a heavy programme aimed at bringing users and takers of Scotcoin on board. For example, we have an ongoing roll out with pubs, clubs and restaurants as well as some fast food outlets. There will be a range of shops and sporting venues that will take Scotcoin, and we are looking in time for the Scotcoin economy to be in the $50-100 million area annually. So anyone who would like to help make it grow is very welcome to talk to us!

CT: How was the initial response?

TM: Very positive. The Scots are very passionate about their country and have shown enormous belief and forward thinking in relation to Scotcoin

CT: How much of Scotcoin's hopes were tied to the independence referendum?

TM: Initially, I don't think it was quite as simple as that. There was always going to have to be a mainstream fiat currency, and people have said that one of the reasons the Referendum was lost was because the currency that Scotland would use after Independence was never explained. Scotcoin might have filled a small part of that requirement, a bit like the WIR system in Switzerland, but it was not intended to be a substitute for fiat currencies

Now we have the chance to use Scotcoin for the good of the whole of Scotland.

CT: What has momentum been like recently? The price and market cap seem to have gone up after the referendum, not down.

TM: Yes, but I don't equate the two together. It's the efforts that early adopters have put in that have educated, explained and moved Scotcoin along. Momentum has been good and quite a few "apostles" have and continue to come forward. This is a long term project that requires effort and dedication

CT: Where do you realistically see the project going from here?

TM: For example, we have an education program to have meetings in every constituency in Scotland where attendees with get a wallet with some Scotcoin in it. They will be able to use it, online and in locations. There are already a few people who will take Scotcoin in exchange for services, and our hope is that adoptees with give a discount over fiat money - perhaps as much as 20% " off". There is a huge diaspora of Scots all over the world, and we are already reaching out to them. We are hoping to be represented at NY Tartan week, and we already have dates booked in Singapore to talk to ex pat Scots

The BBC used to be famous for the three words that Lord Reith said it should represent. It should " educate, inform and entertain". We at Scotcoin hope to "educate, promote and distribute."
