(NewsUSA) - If Overstock.com will do a TIGRcub, why wouldn't you?
If you're not familiar with a TIGRcub or Top Line Income Generation Rights Certificate, simply put, it's a way for private companies to raise capital by offering investors debt enhanced by a slice of revenue. This allows investors to invest in these companies benefiting from monthly cash flows without the headaches of traditional stock market fluctuations.
The Overstock,com TIGRcub is being offered to provide a minimum yield of 6.5 percent plus a small slice of revenue, which could provide a maximum yield of 7 percent via the revenue participation or "Top Line." The offering is a private offering being made exclusively to qualified institutional buyers and a limited number of accredited investors.
According to Stephen H. Watkins, CEO of Entrex, "Revenue is the tangible performance line of the company or the 'Top Line,' which is so different from investing in the volatility of the equity markets, which is often more investor sentiment and speculation than corporate performance."
"TIGRcub Securities provide a monthly cash-flowing risk-adjusted return for investors, eliminating a lot of the downfalls of equity or stock-based investing," says Watkins.
The Overstock TIGRcub will be issued as 25 one million-dollar tokens and will trade using Overstock's "T0.com" BlockChain and across a regulated Alternative Trading System. Financial performance of the TIGRcub will be reported to Bloomberg along with other financial industry data consolidators so investors will have active knowledge of trading and performance of the security.
Overstock made a name for itself in 1999 under Dr. Patrick M. Byrne, the company's current CEO, who recognized the potential of selling excess consumer goods through the Internet to bargain-hunting consumers. Now, Overstock offers more than one million products, from clothing to home goods to furniture to cars, but is now serving industries as diverse as insurance, travel and Cryptocurrencies. Today Dr. Byrne sees T0.com and Entrex's TIGRcub helping to revolutionize the Capital Market the same way the Internet revolutionized the world.
For its part, Entrex currently has a $500 million diversified pool of TIGRcub offerings going to market, which means that there are plenty of companies to invest in.

(NewsUSA) - Water is a limited and essential resource, but too many people are unaware of how much is wasted. Believe it or not, the average American family uses more than 300 gallons of water each day, and 70 percent of that water is used inside the home. Unfortunately, much of that water is wasted without a homeowner's knowledge.
Water leaks are among the main sources of wasted water in the home, accounting for as much as 13.7 percent of a household's water use. That's more than the top household water uses, which include taking a shower, running the dishwasher or doing laundry.
However, some simple tips can help homeowners conserve water, prevent damage caused by leaks and save money on repairs caused by water damage.
Do fewer larger loads of laundry instead of more smaller loads. A larger load uses less water per pound of clothes.
Wait until the dishwasher is full before running it; a half full load wastes both water and electricity.
Data suggest that high-efficiency water-saving devices, such as low-flow showerheads and toilets, could save U.S. households 5.4 billion gallons of water and $11.3 million each day, and the low-flow devices that are currently available don't sacrifice water pressure for efficiency. But if more efficient bathroom fixtures aren't an option, simply taking shorter showers can save two to five gallons of water per minute.
Get a Grip on Leaks
New leak detection products can help homeowners identify leaks early, so they can be managed before water damage sets in. The FloLogic System, for example, serves as a circuit breaker for the plumbing system in the home, sending an alarm and shutting off the water supply when a leak is detected. This early detection feature is key to preventing water damage associated with an unidentified and unrepaired leak. As an added bonus, some insurance companies will provide discounts to homeowners who install systems such as FloLogic.
