Ethereum Foundation Moves $1.7 Million To Intensify Selling Pressure, Sui (PLX) and Pullix (PLX) Remain Unfazed

Pullix.io

The cryptocurrency market has been experiencing selling pressure since the SEC's approval of Bitcoin ETFs. However, for ETH, the selling pressure has only been intensified as the Ethereum Foundation sold over $1.7 million worth of Ether. Following the sale, ETH has dropped to multi-week lows as the crypto market corrects. Despite the bearish crypto market, top altcoins Sui (PLX) and Pullix (PLX) continue to hold steady. Let's find out how these altcoins have managed to remain bullish in the bearish market. Ethereum Foundation Sells $1.7 Million in ETH, Price Drop Continues Along with the crypto market, the price of Ethereum (ETH) has been in correction mode for over two weeks. However, the Ethereum Foundation has added even more selling pressure after its latest ETH token dump. Wu Blockchain reported that the Ethereum Foundation has offloaded 700 Ether tokens worth over $1.7 million. Following the sale, ETH has been under more intense bearish pressure, dropping by 13% on the weekly chart. From a 2024 high of $2,700, the price of Ethereum has dropped to the $2,200 support. Prominent analyst Ali Martinez has warned that ETH may potentially see a decline to the $2,000 price range after its price fell below the $2,388 support. Pullix (PLX) Shows Strength, Attracts Amidst the market-wide correction, Pullix (PLX) has been one of the top altcoins that have remained bullish. Following its 100% price rally over the last few weeks, this new DeFi project has attracted a ton of investors. As a result, Pullix has managed to raise over $4.29 million as the team prepares to launch its one-of-a-kind DeFi project soon. Pullix (PLX) has piqued the interest of the DeFi market because of its unique blend of features from centralized and decentralized exchanges. As a hybrid exchange, Pullix provides a seamless user experience, allows users to control their private keys, and enhanced security. Trading fees are also cheaper with faster processing times. However, the most talked-about feature of Pullix is its connection to multiple markets. In addition to offering crypto like other exchanges, Pullix lets users trade stocks, forex, commodities, and ETFs. These markets are significantly bigger than crypto, with the OTC derivatives market valued at over $632 trillion in 2022. This is the major reason why market analysts are bullish about the performance of PLX. While PLX is valued at $0.08 per coin, it has been forecasted to increase up to 50x when the exchange hits the DeFi market. Sui (SUI) Maintains Bullish Momentum Sui (SUI), one of the highest-gaining altcoins of 2023, has sustained its bullish momentum into 2024. Unaffected by the recent crypto market correction, the price of Sui has increased by more than 43% year-to-date. This makes it one of the top performers of the early year. There has been more activity in Sui's environment, which may be the reason for the price hike. Recently, Mysten Labs and the Sui Foundation collaborated to introduce the Sui Basecamp. This is the DeFi project's first-ever international conference. Also, Sui and Oracle Stork recently partnered to provide developers with quick pricing information. Final Thoughts With Ethereum failing to break free from bearish pressure, Pullix and Sui have become the go-to altcoins for investors. While Sui has been on a bullish trajectory, it looks set to be outpaced by Pullix thanks to its bigger market potential.

Socioeconomic Shifts In Argentina: Property Deeds Signed In October Up 53% Y-O-Y, Gaucho Holdings (NASDAQ: VINO) Optimistic About The Future

Benzinga

By Faith Ashmore, Benzinga Earlier in November, Argentina elected right-wing libertarian Javiar Milei as president; he ran on the promise of economic shock therapy, which resonated with voters. The new president has brought a sense of optimism to his base and real estate experts are noticing an uptick in inquiries for family homes and buildable lots in the wake of the election. Despite the historical unpredictability of the Argentine economy, property prices are on the rise and there was a 53.3% increase in property deeds signed in October compared to the previous year. For individuals and companies that already have a foothold in Argentine real estate, 2024 could prove to be a profitable year marked by growth and expansion. Argentina’s Gaucho Group Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: VINO), which focuses on luxury industries and luxury real estate, seems well-positioned to be a leader in the space as Argentina’s economy rebounds. Gaucho Holdings has been investing in the Argentinian market since 2007 and has no intention of slowing down. The global luxury market is witnessing growth in light of a resurgence of social interactions and travel. The global luxury market is expected to reach $1.6 trillion in 2023, witnessing 8-10% growth over 2022. Despite macroeconomic challenges, the luxury market has shown resilience, and companies like Gaucho Group Holdings seem to be gearing up for growth. In mid-November, Argentine shares rose 28% on Wall Street, reflecting a positive market reaction to the election. Scott Mathis, Chairman and CEO of Gaucho Holdings, shared, "When a country like Argentina shifts from a position of no leverage to leverage, the implications are profound. This could very well be the greatest movement in asset valuation in real estate since the post-World War II era." The company is also in support of President Milei’s plans for Argentina’s dollarization, believing it will help further stabilize the country’s market. Gaucho Holdings’ position in the Argentine real estate market stems from the company’s early entry, established operational presence and diverse portfolio. The company also boasts a seasoned management team with a deep understanding of the market. Scott Mathis is also recently quoted as saying, "Argentina is on the cusp of an economic resurgence. We've been committed to Argentina since 2007, and our deep-rooted presence there, coupled with our diversified business model, positions us uniquely to harness the potential of this new economic era. We are excited to advance our plans and contribute significantly to and benefit from the country's growth trajectory." The company’s mission to source and develop opportunities in Argentina’s undervalued luxury real estate market could be coming to fruition in light of the recent political and socioeconomic shifts in the country. As Argentina’s global economic standing increases, Gaucho Holdings could be uniquely positioned to capitalize on increased opportunities.

How Super League Enterprise Is Helping Shape The Future Of Web 3.0 With 3D Engagement

Benzinga

By Austin DeNoce, Benzinga Immersive experiences are everywhere around us. The lines between reality and virtual reality are blurrier and more valuable with each passing year, and more and more companies are diving into the digital world headfirst. Super League Enterprise (NASDAQ: SLE) is one of those companies as a leader in crafting engaging virtual experiences. The company leverages its substantial user base to forge connections between global brands and the Web 3.0 and gaming community by harnessing the power of immersive technologies to captivate and connect with a generation that increasingly can only be found in a digital world. The buzz around creating immersive online experiences may be lost on older generations that have been relatively slower entering new digital frontiers, but younger generations have fully embraced 3D engagement. Super League Enterprise’s Immersive Media Expansion The pioneer in immersive web activations and user engagement today boasts over a billion monthly impressions and over 120 million active players. The company’s mission is to help brands embrace 3D engagement as a fundamental component of Web 3.0, which it believes is the inevitable way digital advertising dollars will be directed in the future for deeper engagement with new audiences. During 2023, the company was a leader in building immersive 3D experiences across major digital platforms, including Roblox (NASDAQ: RBLX), Minecraft which is owned by Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), Fortnite, Sandbox and Decentraland. The company's strategy focuses on helping brands connect with large audiences in those established 3D environments. Its creator-friendly tools also help transform owned web domains through custom 3D experiences. Tools For 3D Engagement As brands shift digital advertising to make Web 3.0 connections with Generation Z and Alpha, Super League provides creators with a content development platform packed with enough proprietary IP to be an end-to-end operating system for the 3D Web. Super League reports that last year turned out to be a year of strong momentum for the company, highlighted by accelerated growth, streamlined operations and the largest contract in the company’s history – leading to record annual revenues of approximately $25 million. This highlights their growing role in the metaverse and digital engagement strategies. The company has partnered with brands like Barbie from Mattel Inc. (NYSE: MAT), Patrick Star (NASDAQ: PARA) and Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (NYSE: CMG) to connect brands with gaming communities through immersive experiences. Heading into 2024, the company reports more global brands are navigating into Web 3.0 with a planned ramp-up of ad spending in the nascent marketing channel. “Super League is uniquely positioned to be the omni-channel solution for 3D engagement in the arena where brands in the near future will likely spend the majority of their digital advertising,” said Ann Hand, CEO of Super League. “Our capabilities as a platform for short-term advertising campaigns are evolving and our deals are getting much larger as customers discover the value in deeply immersive experiences that deliver revenues that are more recurring and forecastable.” As an example, Super League in 2023 launched the Hamilton Simulator, a Web 3.0 experience that attracted an audience of 6.5 billion for an interactive discovery of the epic Broadway saga’s groundbreaking music. The company reports that the experience went viral with over 1 million visits in the first two weeks, surpassing the top session time of Roblox experiences at an average of 21 minutes. Pioneering Immersive Media The landscape of media is quickly changing, forcing brands and creators to adopt new strategies to engage with a younger audience that increasingly socializes online. Industry giants like Meta Platforms (NASDAQ: META) have already begun making investments in immersive experiences, and as the shift into the digital world increases with innovations in the metaverse or other similar technologies, immersive media is becoming critical for brands seeking to capture the attention of the next generation. Super League believes it is on track to be a gold standard for creating multi-layered, persistent 3D Web solutions in a market it expects will reach $56 billion this year. The company has pioneered immersive activations and player engagement for close to a decade simply responding to the demand for a scalable, integrated publishing platform for immersive web experiences. Platforms to help brands leverage their IP in new and creative ways constitute a growing sector of the media industry. In this new landscape, Super League's approach is clear: equip brands with the knowledge and tools to create engaging digital experiences that drive higher audience engagement and more effective advertising campaigns. Super League Is Upping Its Game Last year, the company integrated generative AI technologies into its creative process tools for significant improvements in content development, color inspiration, image adjustments, audio generation and script refinement. It was an evolution for the company’s already robust content visualization and production solutions capabilities that it believes increases internal efficiencies and opportunities for continued, sustained new business and revenue growth. Super League Enterprise is capitalizing on the shift toward immersive digital environments. In 2023, it reduced its operating costs by 33% while serving some 100 brands and IP owners to successfully raise gross proceeds of $24.8 million and secure $4 million in accounts receivable. It last announced preliminary revenue for the fourth quarter that showed it grew 32% year over year to a company record of approximately $9.4 million. With additional cash from recently secured financings, it’s confident it is now more than ever in a position to drive significant revenue growth leading to profitability. The company's proprietary creator tools and vertically integrated publishing engine could position it as a promising player in the transition to a more interactive and immersive online world. Ultimately, Super League's growing list of partnerships and commitment to innovation in connecting brands with Web 3.0 and gaming communities highlight their strategic approach to audience engagement and advertising in the new dawn of immersive media.

American Paper Plate Coalition Petitions for Relief from Unfairly Traded Imports from China, Thailand, and Vietnam

American Paper Plate Coalition

The American Paper Plate Coalition (“APPC”), representing the majority of American paper plate production, today petitioned the U.S. Department of Commerce (“Commerce”) and the U.S. International Trade Commission (“ITC”) to investigate unfairly priced and subsidized paper plate imports from China, Thailand, and Vietnam. The antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) petitions detail unfair trade practices to sell paper plates at less than fair value and allege dumping margins up to 279%, as well as numerous subsidies. The petitions detail the injury suffered by the U.S. industry and its workers, and request relief in the form of special duties on all associated imports to offset unfair pricing and unfair subsidies. “Imports from these countries have used dumped prices and subsidies to continue to grow in the U.S. market at the expense of American producers and workers,” said Bill Biggins, President and Co-owner of APPC member Aspen Products, Inc. “Over the past three years, unfairly priced and subsidized imports have harmed American producers and taken jobs away from hard-working Americans.” The cases filed today cover all types of plates produced from any type of paper, regardless of color, decoration, shape and size. “American producers can compete with anyone in the world, as long as we’re all playing by the same rules,” said Robert Epstein, President and CEO of APPC member AJM Packaging Corporation. “Fortunately, our country’s trade laws are set up to support fair trade. On behalf of our employees, customers, and colleagues, we look forward to seeing those laws enforced and those who violate our laws held accountable.” The next steps in these investigations will be the initiation of Commerce antidumping and countervailing duty investigations by February 14, 2024, and a preliminary ITC determination by March 11, 2024. About the American Paper Plate Coalition The American Paper Plate Coalition, representing the leading U.S. producers of paper plates, is comprised of AJM Packaging Corporation of Bloomfield Hills, MI; Aspen Products, Inc. of Kansas City, MO; Dart Container Corporation of Mason, MI; Hoffmaster Group, Inc. of Oshkosh, WI; Huhtamaki, Inc., of De Soto, KS; and Unique Industries, Inc. of Philadelphia, PA.

Longing for a tropical getaway? Travel This Winter and Spring to America’s Caribbean Paradise, The United States Virgin Islands

YourUpdateTV

If you are longing for a tropical getaway, the U.S. Virgin Islands is home to some of the world's most stunning beaches and luxurious resorts. Recently, the U.S. Virgin Islands Commissioner of Tourism, Joseph Boschulte conducted a satellite media tour to share tips on how to best experience the U.S. Virgin Islands. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/K3EZnYGhDX4 About 40 miles east of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands comprise a United States territory located in the northeastern Caribbean Sea. The three main islands are St. Croix, St. John, and St. Thomas, where the capital of Charlotte Amalie is located. Perfect for leisure or business travel, the U.S. Virgin Islands features breathtaking, world-renowned beaches, an international marine industry, European architecture, and a burgeoning restaurant industry. No passports are required from U.S. citizens traveling from the U.S. mainland or Puerto Rico.

Additionally, in the sports space the department has established ambassadorships with athletes who have familial ties to the territory including WNBA standout Aliyah Boston, Brooklyn Nets player Nic Claxton, Professional Golfer Alex Swain, and collegiate basketball standout Mervin James at Rider University.

Carnival’s success has opened the territory to opportunities for cultural exchanges with other islands in the region and African countries. For the coming year, the U.S. Virgin Islands will increase concentrate on: · Airlift: Engage in ongoing conversations with airline executives to increase airlift from the U.S. mainland for winter 2024-25. Restoration of international negotiations with airlines in Denmark, Italy, and Canada is a priority. Our focus is on adding flights to St. Croix from the United States, Canada, and Europe. · Cruise: The partnership with the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA) will help us to increase cruise calls, create new experiences, collaborate with the local private sector, and generate employment opportunities. Cruise passenger projections indicate a 13% rise for 2024, with nearly 200,000 new passengers expected. · Marine: Strengthen partnerships with marine stakeholders, expand marine experiences, and attract businesses to set up headquarters in the USVI.

Art Source

In a remarkable fusion of technology and art, the Shifters collection has created a significant buzz in the digital art world. This unique collection, which sold out at theshifters.io, offers an intriguing blend of history and futuristic concepts, encapsulating the essence of its four distinctive factions: Vortex, Magnitude, Velocity, and Pentagon. Brainchild of renowned digital artist Doctor Troller, the Shifters collection is a fascinating mix of folklore and modern technology. It narrates the story of ancient 40-foot-tall metal knights, originally created by the Kings of England as a defence mechanism. Rediscovered and revamped by the Soviet Union under Operation Shifter, these knights were transformed into technologically advanced beings, each faction embodying unique characteristics and capabilities. This innovative collection has resonated strongly with art enthusiasts, leading to its entire collection selling out for an astounding $45 million over a span of 90 days. Each Shifter, whether it be the tank-tracked Vortex, the helicopter-rotored Magnitude, the jet-propelled Velocity, or the multi-faceted Pentagon, has captivated audiences worldwide. Following this ground-breaking success, anticipation is intensifying for Doctor Troller’s upcoming collection, "Break Through", available at doctortroller.com. This new collection is expected to follow in the footsteps of its predecessor, with investors and art aficionados eagerly waiting. A limited series of 10 pieces, priced at $1 million each, will be exclusively available later this year. Doctor Troller's unique approach and style in the digital art landscape have drawn comparisons to some of the most iconic figures in contemporary art. His innovative Shifters collection, much like Banksy's provocative and politically charged street art, is reshaping the way digital art is perceived and valued. Additionally, the essence of his work echoes the styles of other celebrated artists like Shepard Fairey, known for his impactful "Obey" campaign and the Barack Obama "Hope" poster, and Damien Hirst, famous for his daring and often controversial pieces. These comparisons highlight Doctor Troller's growing influence and the significant role he plays in the evolving narrative of modern art. His work is characterised by a blend of mystery and a sharp commentary on modern society. This similarity has not gone unnoticed in the art community, with many drawing parallels between the artists' ability to captivate audiences and provoke thought through their art. Adding to the excitement and success of his Shoreditch Gallery in London, which opened late last year, Doctor Troller is launching The Doctor Troller Gallery, set to open in February, a testament to the growing interest and value in digital art collections. This expansion includes the opening of a second gallery in New York, further establishing Doctor Troller's presence in the international art scene. For those interested in the "Break Through" collection, a limited series of 10 pieces, priced at $1 million each, will be available. These exclusive pieces will be signed by Doctor Troller and come with a certificate of authenticity, making them a valuable addition to any investor’s collection.

CRAIG KNIPPENBERG, LCSW, M.DIV., RELEASES SECOND PARENTING GUIDEBOOK, SHAME-FREE PARENTING

Knippenberg, Patterson, Langley & Associates

Craig A. Knippenberg, LCSW, M.Div., a Denver-based mental health counselor with four decades of family therapy experience, and founder/host of the Legit Parenting podcast, announced today the release of his second book, Shame-Free Parenting ( Illumify Media Global ), a parenting guide for building family resiliency. In its first six weeks on Amazon, the book hit #1 in Kindle sales across all parenting books. In Shame-Free Parenting, Knippenberg demystifies many challenges associated with parenting today, which can result in over-protective child-rearing approaches. Now – more than ever – parents, children and families are faced with trying times as the world’s current events and social media platforms elicit a plethora of mixed feelings and emotions. Knippenberg believes that “ a pandemic of fragility has arisen amongst our children and teens, ” driven by modern-day culture and events. He also likens the smartphone to a modern pandora’s box that -- in combination with modern cultural issues, such as the impact and aftermath of COVID-19, school shootings, climate change, and persistent news coverage of war and social conflicts -- creates a state of chronic stress.
