Acerca de la demora/suspensión de las transferencias de los fondos recaudados a dueños de proyecto de Airfunding

Kiheitai Inc.

Información actualizada el 23 de marzo de 2022

Entre los países en los que se proporciona el servicio de crowdfunding de Airfunding por Kiheitai Inc, desde el 22 de marzo se está experimentando una demora o suspensión de las transferencias de PayPal en los países a continuación.

Países donde las transferencias de PayPal están suspendidas (no obstante, hay disponibles otros servicios de pago): Ecuador, Brasil, El Salvador, Perú, República Dominicana, Taiwán, Sudáfrica, Guatemala, Honduras, entre otros.

Países donde las transferencias se han suspendido por completo: Colombia, Venezuela.

Actualmente estamos investigando la causa de la suspensión de las transferencias mediante PayPal.

Para transferir fondos a usuarios en Venezuela y Colombia, empleamos los servicios de PayPal como la forma más segura y confiable de enviar dinero. Sin embargo, actualmente no contamos con un método de transferencia alternativo y por tanto los pagos están suspendidos.

​​Para países que no sean Venezuela y Colombia, sigue habiendo disponible otros servicios de pago alternativos (Wise, Azimo).

Nos disculpamos sinceramente por la preocupación y las molestias causadas a los propietarios de proyectos afectados por esta situación.

Le informaremos nuevamente tan pronto como se reanuden las transferencias a los países afectados.

Acerca de la demora de las transferencias de los fondos recaudados a dueños de proyecto de Airfunding

Kiheitai Inc.

Información actualizada el 10 de marzo de 2022

Entre los países en los que se proporciona el servicio de crowdfunding de Airfunding por Kiheitai Inc, se ha experimentado una demora en la transferencias de los fondos recaudados en Colombia y Venezuela desde el 1 de Octubre de 2021 hasta el 28 de Febrero de 2022.

Cuando transferimos fondos a Venezuela y Colombia, empleamos los servicios de PayPal como la forma más segura y confiable de enviar dinero. Sin embargo, la cuenta de Kiheitai fue suspendida debido a la detección de posibles transacciones fraudulentas, lo que provocó una demora en las transferencias a los propietarios de proyectos.

Actualmente, se ha conseguido solventar el problema y las transferencias de fondos a los propietarios de proyectos tanto en Venezuela como en Colombia se están realizando con normalidad. Para finales de marzo de 2022, se espera completar todas las transacciones a los propietarios de proyectos que hayan sufrido dicha demora.

Nos disculpamos sinceramente por la preocupación y las molestias causadas a los propietarios de proyectos.

Para evitar que se repita esta situación, Kiheitai tomará las siguientes medidas en el futuro:

  • Como medida para evitar el bloqueo de nuestra cuenta, estamos reforzando el control de todos los pagos recibidos en la plataforma diariamente.
  • Realizaremos un monitoreo constante de los servicios de transferencia y la expansión de plataformas para ofrecer más métodos disponibles.
  • Construiremos un sistema de transferencias confiable lo antes posible

Agradecemos su paciencia y comprensión y esperamos que siga utilizando los servicios de Kiheitai y Airfunding.

Suspension of Remittances of Funds Raised by Airfunding to Project Owners in Russia

Kiheitai Corporation

Last updated March 4, 2022

As of the present time, we regret to inform you that in Russia, where Kiheitai Inc. provides Airfunding services, particularly crowdfunding projects launched after March 1, 2022, we can no longer remit funds as our payment partners cease their operation in Russia on that above said date.

We are using Wize and Azimo for remittances to Russia, but due to the recent global economic activity, remittances using both services have become impossible. Airfunidng team is currently exploring various ways to make payment possible in this country however, we might need 3 to 4 months’ time to resolve this issue as almost all types of remittance is not possible.,

We deeply apologize for the inconvenience this has caused the project owners.

We will inform you the soonest as there is progress on both remittance services.

The Airfunding team sincerely prays for peace and for the safety of all people living in both Russia and Ukraine.

Kiheitai Inc.

Последнее обновление: 4 марта 2022 г.

С 1 марта 2022, AirFunding временно приостанавливает перевод средств, собранных на платформе  пользователями из России.

В настоящее время Wize и Azimo используются для денежных переводов в Россию, но из-за влияния недавней экономической ситуации, денежные переводы с использованием обоих сервисов недоступны. Команда Airfinidng занималась поиском различных возможных методов перевода средств, но по состоянию на 4 марта ситуация такова, что денежные переводы в Россию временно недоступны.

Приносим искренние извинения за беспокойство и причиненные неудобства владельцам проектов.

Мы сообщим вам сразу, как только проблема будет разрешена в обеих службах.

Мы молимся за мир и безопасность всех людей, живущих в России.

Press release: Savanna Kidz NFTs: The Birth Of The First Decentralized Autonomous City In The Real World

Savanna Kids

Savanna Kidz NFTs is an experimental NFT that aims to transform and rebuild real-world communities into a progressive decentralized society through DAO participation.

It is a pioneering project that will provide tangible and actual effects beyond the usual digital realm of NFT projects.

The idea of a decentralized society with multiple autonomous communities that are economically and culturally independent from the restraints of centralized government control, is translated into the development of the first Open Town Project, an experience that will start with the village of Karungu, Uganda, in a remote area with difficult access to water and medical services.

For this, the Savanna Kidz NFT project team will coordinate with Faith Angels Ministry, an authorized NGO composed mainly by Karungu locals.

The development flow of the Open City, ruled by DAO voting

Savanna Kidz NFT holders will have the right to propose ideas and take part in DAO voting towards the development of the Open Town. 

$OPENTOWN is a governance token that will be used by NFT holders to vote for the developmental direction of each community in the Open Town Project.

Each Savanna Kidz NFT entitles its holder to claim 3,000 $OPENTOWN tokens immediately following the sale, and actual holders will then receive an Airdrop of 4 $OPENTOWN daily throughout 12 years.

This governance token will be used in DAO voting, allowing holders to coordinate with key members of Faith Angels Ministry to plan the town development through a series of discussions and proposals.

An official announcement about the Sale schedule will be done on Feb 7, 2022

On January 17, 2022, promotions of Savanna Kidz NFTs were officially launched.

More details about the pre-sale, the first voting and the mint day of Savanna Kidz NFT will be included in an official announcement that will occur on February 7, 2022 .

So far, it’s expected the pre-sale to happen between the 14th and 15th of February, while the first voting will be done between the 14th and 17th of the same month.

This first voting will take place among three different proposals to contribute with the development of the first Open Town in Karungu Village: 

  1. Provision of clean water to the community through the construction of water tanks.
  2. Acquisition of a community bus for the population of Karungu.
  3. Banking development to promote saving culture through Village Savings and Loans Association (VSLA). 

Savanna Kidz NFT mint sale is still to be determined, but it is expected to occur between the end of February and the beginning of March of 2022, with a supply of 10,000. Each Savanna Kidz NFT will be priced at 0.05 ETH on mint.

How to be a part of Savanna Kidz NFTs

Those interested to be a part of this project can wait until the Savanna Kidz NFT mint sale is open to the public.

In the meantime, Savanna Kidz official Discord server can be joined here, where it’s possible to receive the latest updates and directly interact with Savanna Kidz NFT creators and other members of an already increasing community. 

This is a big opportunity for cryptocurrency and NFT lovers to involve themselves in a cutting-edge project that intends to create self-sustaining real-world decentralized cities through the power of crypto.

Record High COVID-19 Campaigns Spike as Delta Virus Hit Hard Southeast Asia

Despite the stringent effort to curb the pandemic around the globe, the Delta variant found new routes into Southeast Asia. Cases were at all-time high in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines. Indonesia has the highest number of cases with 3,854,354 cases and 117,588 deaths followed by the Philippines with 1,741,616 cases and 30,340 deaths and Malaysia with 1,404,899 cases and 12,510 deaths. The highly contagious Delta variant was first detected in India last October and has become the dominant strain worldwide. With this spike in Southeast Asia, many people sought help to help them and their families to raise funds for a variety of causes. During this pandemic, the use of such initiatives has significantly helped individuals or communities requiring money for medical, personal and other expenses. 

Covid-19 pandemic has changed the world a lot, we get to see how the weakness of the system and governments are in handling this crisis, we also get to see how people are unprepared and suffering from this pandemic. Crowdfunding became one of the most helpful ways to alleviate their needs, it became a tool to empower them to rise beyond their needs by asking help from kindhearted people across the globe. Crowdfunding provided help to people beyond distance even when people are restricted to even step out of their homes, anyone can donate small amounts in the comfort of their own homes and make a difference in someone’s life. With the current spike in Southeast Asia, many people again turn to crowdfunding as this is the easiest and most powerful way to reach out to people for help.Map

Thousands are expected to turn to crowdfunding for help as COVID19 situation worsens in the Philippines.

Since the pandemic started, thousands of Filipinos have relied to crowdfunding on helping them meet their needs, especially with medical expenses brought about by contracting this virus. 80% of the projects were medical related, more than 15% are community food program and the rest are other related covid19 projects. 

With the current fear of the COVID19 delta virus spreading fast, many more will be expected to turn to crowdfunding for funding help. It was reported that as of today, the Delta variant has infected more than 100 Filipinos and the spread of fear has reached thousands if not millions of Filipinos. With the current economic situation of the Philippines, many lack the necessary funds to help them get by let alone the cost of treatment spare them from this dilemma.
