#Tech News: Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: $GOPH) Completes First Stage of MESH Technology Testing


#Tech News: Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: $GOPH) Completes First Stage of MESH Technology Testing



San Diego, CA - April 26, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: GOPH) ("Gopher"), a technology company which specializes in the creation of Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and enabled mobile technologies, recently completed the first stage of their MESH Technology testing.


R&D projects are typically done in three stages:
·        Stage A: Includes the industry's current technology, research, and conclusions.
·        Stage B: Integrates the new system's definitions which are set in place including architecture, performance, evaluation, and risk mitigation. The new system is simulated and reviewed for strengths and weaknesses which are identified resulting in a proof-of-concept. The assessment of risks and obstacles create the need for a risk mitigation plan to follow during the design phase.
·        Stage C: The design/implementation phase whereby the system is built as a prototype and testing begins to determine its performance and efficiency within a wide range of conditions.

Gopher has successfully completed its Stage A MESH technology testing, and has moved forward to Stage B. Stage A consisted of a comprehensive analysis of existing industry MESH technologies and their pros/cons and defining Gopher's MESH system, which is based on a new approach and methodology. In this phase we defined our new MESH technology architecture, performance, scalability, and cost of implementation.

"We are pleased to announce that we are moving to Stage B, which is our MESH network architecture performance evaluation. In this phase we will perform an in-depth analysis of the network performance by implementing sets of setups and configurations. We intend to simulate the system with a wide range of conditions and scenarios, reviewing the performance of the hardware and software. Finally, we will perform our MESH architecture validation, including state-machine implementation, payloads, characteristics analysis, interface code, firmware, and more.

"This is a significant stage for us, developing this new MESH technology," stated Danny Rittman, Gopher's Chief Technology Officer. "In Stage B we intend to produce Proof-of-Concept documents; including test cases for our MESH architecture and performance validation. With this data and a risk mitigation plan we intend to move into the system's design implementation stage." The design, formulation, and implementation of our proposed MESH network is subject to a number of risks including raising appropriate capital to support the design and implementation of the network. The Company is looking forward to sharing additional developments with its shareholders in the future.

#Tech News: Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: $GOPH) Releases 2017 Financials


#Tech News: Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: $GOPH) Releases 2017 Financials

Announces Addition of New CFO



SANTA MONICA, CA - April 19, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: GOPH) ("Gopher"), a technology company which specializes in the creation of Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) enabled mobile technologies, released the results of its 10K filing for the year ended December 31, 2017.


Management of Gopher is excited to use this milestone to highlight what has been achieved in the past year. Revenue grew over 5,000% year over year when compared to year ended 2017 and Gopher has further developed its asset base, which is expected to support future operations and growth. https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1471781/000161577418002560/0001615774-18-002560-index.htm

In response to this increase in the size of Gopher's operations, the Board has determined that additional resources in control and management of finances is prudent beginning with an initial step of engaging a Chief Financial Officer.

The Company appointed Mr. Kevin Pickard as its Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Pickard brings almost 30 years of accounting experience to Gopher. He is a licensed CPA with extensive experience in working with public companies.

Gopher's board was specifically interested in Mr. Pickard's experience in performing due diligence on potential acquisition candidates, preparing projections and business plans and assisting with corporate restructurings.
Prior to opening his own CPA firm in 1998, he was a partner with Singer Lewak LLP, where he is co-managed the firm's securities practice group.

Mr. Pickard also spent over nine years with Coopers & Lybrand, L.L.P., (currently PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP) where he focused on auditing companies in the insurance, high-tech and manufacturing industries. Mr. Pickard earned his Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Master of Accountancy from Brigham Young University.

"Having worked with Gopher during 2017 and seeing the transformation first hand, I am excited to have the opportunity to become part of the team," stated Kevin Pickard.

SoundView Technology Group Update on NXT-ID, Inc. (Nasdaq: $NXTD); EARLY 2018 OUTLOOK


SoundView Technology Group Update on NXT-ID, Inc. (Nasdaq: $NXTD); EARLY 2018 OUTLOOK



SoundView Technology Group (Boston) – April 18, 2018:  SoundView Technology Group (http://soundview.co) releases the following company update for NXT-ID, Inc. (NASDAQ:NXTD).

NXT-ID (NXTD $1.97)

EARLY 2018 OUTLOOK

APRIL 18, 2018

KRIS TUTTLE, KRIS@SOUNDVIEW.CO


Excerpt:
April 2018 Update
2017 was a busy year for Nxt-ID. Revenues tripled to $23.3M from $7.3M in 2016. It took some expensive financing to get it all done but now the company is in a much better position and has cleaned up the balance sheet considerably. The last component is a refinancing of their revolving debt which we believe will come soon (as per recent management guidance.) This final step will dramatically reduce their interest payments.

(For investors new to the NXTD story we recommend you read the recent SEC 10K form - the first sections are well-written and the most current detailed overview of the business. Here’s a link to the PDF of the NXTD 10K. )

We expect they will build on their success in 2018 - primarily in expanding the FitPay business and extending their LogicMark franchise more deeply into the healthcare industry.

But investors should be reminded that the company is rooted in authentication and payments technology which allows them to continue to innovate around new devices and payment devices. The advent of blockchain technologies and crypto currencies has opened up an even broader range of business development opportunities. In 2018 we expect Nxt-ID to debut a new next-generation general purpose payment device.

LogicMark
LogicMark has been a steady growing business, making consistent quarterly revenue progress. In 2018 we expect more of the same backed by a broad range of updated products and expanded distribution and more direct-to-consumer offerings that don’t require monthly service fees.

LogicMark is also working on expanding their role in the healthcare industry from personal emergency response (PERS) units into solutions for patient monitoring and chronic care.
For example, hospitals want to discharge patients as soon as possible (often too soon) but face penalties and unreimbursed expenses if that patient has to return to the hospital with a relapse. By discharging patients with improved monitoring technology, the hospital can reduce the frequency and severity of relapses and in many cases avoid re-admission.

At this point we are only modeling continued expansion of the PERS business so we’ll be watching how the company develops their healthcare market opportunity. The area is ripe, but we know that hospitals and care-providers can be very deliberate in their adoption of new technologies and are often hampered by regulations and prior investments in large legacy systems.

There are some positive trends in healthcare that make us cautiously optimistic. First of all, the pressure on the already-creaking system is unrelenting. An aging population is only making current inefficiencies harder to endure. On the technology side we have seen real growth in modern methods like Telehealth. One example is the success of Teledoc (NYSE: TDOC) which now has 23 million paying members and grew revenue last year 89% to $233M. The company expects to do $355M in revenue in 2018.

Fit Pay
More Fit Pay enabled devices will be rolling out in 2018. Existing customer Garmin is adding “Garmin Pay” deeper into their product portfolio and it should be available across more of their lineup by the end of the year.

We also expect to see shipments of more innovative wearable devices like the Token Ring LINK. We believe there is significant consumer demand for some kind of “digital cash” option outside of the smartphone. So far nothing has fit the bill and seen significant adoption but a raft of new devices may change this.

Fit Pay has their own offering, the Flip, which is scheduled to begin shipping towards the end of Q2. We think about Flip as kind of an “EZPass” for your daily life. Small purchases should be easy and anonymous.

The Flip offering is about recurring account fees but they will be small in magnitude. In 2018 this is still more about “design wins” which translate into long-term recurring revenue streams in the form of small activation and account fees.

We expect some significant new customers for Fit Pay in 2018, possibly as early as Q2. These will also reinforce the positioning Fit Pay as a platform and a strategic asset. Any device-maker outside of Apple and Google that wants to do payments would consider Fit Pay to be a key piece of proven infrastructure.
