Taiwan Excellence Hoops Camp Fuels Pinoy Skills on the Court

Combining the Filipino passion for basketball and the Taiwanese drive for innovation, the first-ever Taiwan Excellence Basketball Camp recently filled the Mall of Asia Music Hall with an intense 3-on-3 Hoop Challenge, top-notch innovations from Taiwan Excellence, and PBA stars.

A partnership between Taiwan Excellence and legendary PBA star Coach Eric Altamirano, the two-day Camp aimed to promote sportsmanship as it brought together some of the Metro’s most promising basketball players while highlighting the incredible products awarded with the Taiwan Excellence Seal.

“Taiwan Excellence Basketball Camp is an exemplary showcase of excellence from both countries: the fighting spirit of the Filipinos further empowered by the products of Taiwan,” said Alfred Wang, Director of the Economic Division of Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO).
With its aim of promoting the leading products, Taiwan Excellence shares to the world a variety of truly innovative brands. Initiated by the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA), Taiwan, R.O.C., in 1992, the symbol of Taiwan Excellence is continuously recognized by 102 countries.

The symbol of Taiwan Excellence, according to Wang, honors Taiwan’s most innovative products “that provide tremendous value to users worldwide.” Each product has been selected for a specific Taiwan Excellence Award based on their excellence in the following categories: design, quality, marketing, Taiwanese R&D, and manufacturing.

Boasting participation of 192 amateur Pinoy ballers, the Camp put their skills to the test in a rigorous 3-on-3 matches while 3 PBA stars are on the sidelines showing support.

Alongside Coach E of Alaska Aces, local court heroes JC Intal and Doug Kramer of Phoenix Fuel Masters also gave their support to the budding ballers.

Also integral to the whole Taiwan Excellence Basketball Camp set up is the Taiwan Excellence Experience Zone which exhibits the top-of-the-line products of Taiwan.

With products from tech giant Asus, fitness company Johnson, and bike manufacturer Tern, among others, the Taiwan Excellence Zone got everyone up close and personal with impressive products championed by Taiwan.

Wang hopes these superior products from Taiwan will boost the way of life and strengthen the love of Filipinos for basketball and sports in general.

“They did a great job in showcasing the best products that Taiwan can offer. The quality can go head to head with other global brands,” said Christian Ramos, one of the players for the Camp.

Meanwhile, the two celebrity players look forward to using the products themselves.

“I am really excited about the bikes from Tern. They make biking and going around the city a much more fun experience,” said Intal.

As for Kramer, he has his sights on the Paper Shoot, compact digital cameras with cases made out of eco-friendly paper.

“I really feel that the whole family will fall in love with it. It is so simple and sophisticated, I know my kids will love using Paper Shoot.” Kramer said.

Are You Ready for UTRUST?

Blockchain payment platform UTRUST is going where no other of its kind has gone before. Leveraging a team of experts from various consumer and corporate business, financial, legal, and technical fields, it is building a groundbreaking service that promises to change the way the world uses cryptocurrency. By adopting a familiar experience combined with safety features that render payment fraud obsolete, UTRUST is building the payments platform of the future.

Many have hailed crypto coins as the currency of the next generation. One of their main selling points is their decentralized and secure blockchain-based origins. This solves many of the problems inherent in today’s fiat currencies and bank-based payment structures. However, cryptocurrency is still relatively unheard of in the Philippines and most of Asia, owing to the complications arising in their use.


UTRUST seeks to change this. The service is the ideal entry-point to increase the adoption of cryptocurrencies in emerging markets, by serving as a bridge between crypto and fiat users. Buyers will able to purchase any product using their favorite coin, without the extra hassle of converting to fiat first. The platform automatically does this, and delivers the payment in fiat money to the seller. This simple process makes UTRUST the PayPal of digital currencies.


However, the service really shines in its cutting-edge security features. Imagine being able to shop online with complete peace of mind, knowing you cannot be defrauded. Users can use UTRUST to pay for their purchases — the payment is kept safe in the service’s centralized escrow system, and is only delivered to the merchant upon receipt of the goods. In the unlikely case that a dispute arises, UTRUST’s dedicated resolution team takes action and resolves it within a fixed timeframe. No more waiting for weeks to get your funds back!

Home-based entrepreneurs will also benefit by adopting the system. Aside from lower selling fees and faster approval speeds, merchants no longer need to fear the threat of chargebacks. By tapping into the fiat financial system, utilizing an intuitive interface, and building trust between buyers and sellers, UTRUST makes transitioning into cryptocurrencies a breeze.


Nuno Correia, CEO, said: “UTRUST sees the potential of cryptocurrencies and digital technology to transform financial services provision in both developed and developing markets. The potential gains are particularly exciting in emerging markets where mobile phone penetration could recreate the role physical banking infrastructure plays in developed markets.


The service helps its users break away from the clunky banking infrastructure completely by using their mobile phones as financial hubs. Imagine being able to pay anything through your phone, without a bank account — purchases, mortgages, loans, and more. In a country whose mobile phones far outnumber its own population, UTRUST can change the way Filipinos think of finance.

Acer and G Shock Bridge the Gap in a #TimeForUS Campaign

Acer Philippines, a leading tech and innovations company, launches #TimeForUs, a movement that aims to narrow the divide between Gen Xers and millennials. Acer Philippines moves to bring two generations closer through technology, breaking down barriers built on misconceptions and misunderstandings.

“At Acer, we believe that it’s time to focus on bridging the generation divide,” shares Sue Ong-Lim, Sales and Marketing Director of Acer Philippines. “It’s imperative that we see that, amidst the differences between Gen Xers and millennials, they are also a lot alike.”

Acer Philippines also called on rock musician Basti Artadi and spoken word artist Juan Miguel Severo, both artistic icons of their craft and time, to collaborate and develop “Time For Us” a musical-and-spoken word piece to drive the message of the campaign. Basti Artadi, vocalist of the award-winning rock band Wolfgang, rose to fame in the mid- to late-90s, making him a legend among those from Gen X.
