Avanzanite Bioscience Expands in European Countries

Expanded collaboration now includes Ireland, Cyprus and Malta in addition to existing markets of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Greece and Liechtenstein. Advicenne expanded partnership validates Avanzanite’s execution capabilities and unwavering commitment to the smallest countries in Europe.

Avanzanite Bioscience B.V. (“Avanzanite” or the “Company”), a specialty pharmaceutical company with a corporate mission of boosting orphan drug access and unlocking their full potential in European markets, today announced that it has expanded its commercial partnership with Paris-based specialty pharmaceutical company Advicenne for Sibnayal®. Today’s announcement extends Avanzanite’s exclusive commercialization and distribution rights into three additional European countries, including Ireland, Cyprus and Malta.

The product is the first approved medicinal product in Europe for the treatment of distal Renal Tubular Acidosis (dRTA) in children and adults. dRTA is a rare kidney disease that occurs when the kidneys do not properly remove acids from the blood into the urine leading to metabolic acidosis. The condition leads to stunted growth in children, brittle bones or rickets, kidney stones and life-threatening hypokalemia.

Announced in February 2023, the original geographic scope of the partnership included Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Greece. Avanzanite’s Founder and CEO, Adam Plich, stated, “By expanding our partnership into additional European countries just a few months after our original collaboration formed, today’s announcement marks a meaningful endorsement by our valued commercial partner – Advicenne – of our flawless execution capabilities, compelling value proposition, and, most importantly, of our unwavering commitment to deliver the latest innovative medicines to patients suffering from rare diseases across even the smallest countries Europe.” Mr. Plich continued, “Even in the infancy of our commercial launch, we’re already seeing significant traction in our legacy markets.”

“We did not anticipate being in a position so soon after our original collaboration was announced that an expansion of Avanzanite’s role in commercializing our product across Europe would be so intuitive,” stated Didier Laurens, Chief Executive Officer of Advicenne. “Across every metric we pre-defined, Avanzanite has outperformed and, as such, it simply makes business sense for us to take this partnership to the next level.” Mr. Laurens concluded, “At the end of the day, being able to significantly improve the quality of lives of dRTA patients is what really matters, and we share this vision and passion with Avanzanite.”

“Consistent with our corporate mission of delivering novel medicines to patients suffering from rare diseases into markets across Europe where they cannot otherwise access them,” Mr. Plich added, “it was important for us to execute on this second partnership perfectly. While the job is never done, we continue to fire on all cylinders and, as such, we are now advancing additional discussions that would leverage our unique platform and drive incremental value to all our stakeholders.”

ABOUT AVANZANITE BIOSCIENCE: Derived from the word ‘Tanzanite’ – one of the rarest and most underappreciated gemstones on earth – Avanzanite was formed to capitalize on two primary objectives, one economic, and one humanitarian. The economic goal is to offer end-to-end commercialization and distribution partnership with research-based biopharmaceutical originators to unlock the full value of their orphan medicines in European markets; this is the unique expertise and core competency of the Avanzanite team through its decades of operating experience navigating this area. Equally important, the Company's humanitarian goal stems from our commitment to enabling access to novel medicines for patients who suffer from orphan diseases regardless of where in Europe they live.

Britanniacoin's Official Pre-release

Aptius Ltd, a British financial enterprise, has developed a new cryptocurrency called BritanniaCoin which will be available for pre-sale from June 18th onwards, ahead of its launch later this year. BritanniaCoin is a British-built blockchain that introduces real-world applications while honouring British cultural heritage.

The pre-release contains 316,000 coins for sale, fixed at 6 USD per coin, in honour of the official unification of England and Scotland in 1707, 316 years ago. The pre-release presents an opportunity to purchase BritanniaCoin before its launch on exchanges at 8 USD per coin. BritanniaCoin is also launching a software wallet for the public, downloadable on the Apple App Store and Google Play. As part of BritanniaCoin's commitment to charitable causes, 10% of the proceeds from the pre-sale will be donated to charity, as listed on the BritanniaCoin website.

During its pre-sale this summer, BritanniaCoin intends to give away 125,000 coins. BritanniaCoin is 100% self-funded and developed with no silent partners, as detailed in the white paper. These initiatives aim to foster an ecosystem that represents British values, integrates historic cultural legacy with technological innovation, and supports charitable organizations such as Hearts of Gold to improve the lives of vulnerable people.

BritanniaCoin introduces a proprietary blockchain with zero fees and a 20% faster block confirmation time than Bitcoin.

After the 1st round pre-release for commercial customers started in September 2022, BritanniaCoin launched its own bespoke hardware infrastructure. This hardware wallet platform intends to facilitate customer security, anonymity, and technological innovation. This exclusive hardware wallet is currently available to private investors and commercial clients who get in touch via their website. Moreover, the prospect of providing customers of the planned NFT project with access to hardware wallets in the future is something that is currently being considered. Following the completion of its 2nd stage ICO, BritanniaCoin intends to center its blockchain ecosystem, brand identity, and community on this hardware technology basis.

BritanniaCoin pursues multiple long-term goals, including expanding its community and improving the user experience. In addition, BritanniaCoin has its own British-themed NFT project that provides holders unique advantages, offering access to airdrops, special discounts, voting rights, an active role in selecting which charity institutions to support and signature events, such as their recent pre-release party held at the East India Club.

In the aftermath of the ICO, BritanniaCoin intends to launch BritanniaPay, consisting of their software wallet compatible with iOS and Android and connected with the company's current hardware wallet network. BritanniaPay is an innovative new initiative that prioritizes British brands and businesses by integrating blockchain technology into its own payment system. Users can pay for their purchases at various UK and international retailers with BritanniaCoin alongside Bitcoin, Ethereum and other established cryptocurrencies.

BritanniaCoin unites a diverse team, as the Co-founder and CEO Daniel M. Ashworth brings over five years of experience in the cryptocurrency sector and co-founded Aptius in 2018, a Crypto and Forex trading company. Co-founder and CTO Jonathan Peters has 10 years of programming experience, including blockchain architecture, network infrastructures, and algorithmic trading software.
