NFT Artist Set to Open a New Art Gallery in Soho

Doctor Troller

Renowned digital artist Andrew Brown, famously known as Doctor Troller, is thrilled to announce the opening of his innovative art gallery in Soho. The gallery, opened its doors in October and prominently features works from acclaimed artwork collections including The Shifters, Crocs League, and Skull Squad. Art enthusiasts and followers of Doctor Troller will have the unique opportunity to experience his digital artistry in person while emerging artists are also invited to showcase their work in this avant-garde space. This initiative embodies Doctor Troller’s continuous endeavor to foster a vibrant community of digital art lovers and creators, bridging the virtual and physical realms of artistic expression. Doctor Troller’s Voyage from Streets to Screens Doctor Troller has a raw, unfiltered journey that morphed a street troller into a digital art mogul. His growth is a testimony to the boundless realms creativity can venture into when fueled by audacity and a touch of rebellion. His artwork, now celebrated globally, finds its roots in the bustling streets of London. In May 2021, Andrew Brown's experiment in Soho’s Berwick Street dubbed the ‘Honest Gallery’, saw £4,000 worth of artwork displayed openly, inviting passersby to pay what they wished. By day's end, all pieces were taken with not a penny in the collection box. “It was an experiment in human nature to see if we could expect people to do the right thing and in Soho, it was a dismal failure," remarked Brown. Despite the setback, the spirit of philanthropy persevered, with the intended charity donation honored. This experience, a blend of audacity and altruism, subtly shaped the ethos of the forthcoming gallery, where inclusivity meets edgy digital artistry. From Digital Disruption to Artistic Elevation Forged in the buzzing core of London’s art scene, Andrew "Doctor Troller" Brown’s artistry is a riveting blend of rebellion and innovation. His Chelsea-based endeavors have seen the birth of provocative digital pieces, igniting controversies and sparking debates across both traditional and digital art spheres. His dyslexia, far from a hurdle, propelled him beyond conventional mediums, crafting a narrative that bridges art and body, borne from a "passion of expression through physical action to trigger controversy". As the art world converges at his Soho gallery, spectators are in for an experience that transcends mere visual appeal, diving into a narrative that’s as edgy as it is evocative. The gallery isn’t just a showcase of Doctor Troller’s celebrated collections - The Shifters, Crocs League, and Skull Squad, but an invitation to emerging artists to be part of a narrative that challenges, disrupts, and evokes. Doctor Troller’s ascent to a net worth of £200 million GBP in 2021 mirrors the crescendo of digital art’s acclaim, marking him as a vanguard in this realm. His artworks, veiled in satire and bold commentary, found their home in digital marketplaces and even traditional auction houses, echoing the appetite for digital artistry in contemporary circles. Pieces like 'Booty Shot' and 'Lightzilla' aren’t mere digital creations, but audacious dialogues challenging societal norms and igniting discussions on empowerment, identity, and the human experience.

Athletech is a single venue industry leaders can now visit to pick up the day’s key headlines, hear thought leaders discuss consumer trends, read analysts' recaps of market movements and deal flow, and learn best-in-class practices from their peers.

Edward Hertzman commented: “It's time the fitness and wellness industry had a serious seat at the table. From boardrooms to Capitol Hill to mainstream media, there is more to our business than diet hacks, before-and-after infomercials and body-building stereotypes. We are committed to building a platform for the fitness and wellness industry, to share news and opinions, even if those opinions are somewhat raw), to network, celebrate wins, and most importantly, do all of it in a collaborative, pre-competitive environment.” # # # About Athletech News Athletech News provides comprehensive media coverage of the most impactful news and trends shaping the fitness and wellness sector.

Lawyers Predict Ripple Win and XRP Rally – Shiba Inu and Everlodge Set for Explosive Fourth Quarter

Total Media

The price of XRP has been predicted to rally as lawyers forecast a victory for Ripple in the SEC case. Also, as the crypto market enters bull territory, Shiba Inu and Everlodge are two altcoins predicted to record great gains. In this article, we will take a look at the predictions for these three trending cryptocurrencies. Join the Everlodge presale and win a luxury holiday to the Maldives Lawyers Predict Ripple Win and XRP Lawsuit The almost three-year-long Ripple lawsuit is expected to reach a conclusion soon. With the SEC recently dropping all charges against the Ripple executives, lawyers expect the verdict to go Ripple’s way. As a result, the XRP coin has been projected to embark on a major rally. Lawyer Bill Morgan gives the SEC a 3% chance of winning its appeal against Ripple and XRP. However, Jeremy Hogan is less bullish, predicting that the SEC still stands a 14% chance of winning an appeal. Regardless, Ripple and XRP still remain the overwhelming favorites to win this case. There is more positive news for the altcoin, as there are rumors that France’s CBDC efforts might involve XRP. Because of this, crypto analysts have predicted that the price of XRP could increase significantly after a Ripple victory. From $0.5338, many crypto analysts predict that the XRP price could reach its all-time high at $3. Experts Predict 600% Price Increase for Shiba Inu When the Shiba Inu layer 2 network, Shibarium, launched in August, many investors expected a price spike. The Shiba Inu coin, SHIB, would decline from $0.00001100 to $0.000006710 in October. However, SHIB is now showing signs of recovery. Joining the crypto market rally, the price of Shiba Inu has increased above the $0.000007200 resistance. However, crypto analysts predict that SHIB could see more gains in the coming days. According to Finder’s panel of analysts, the Shiba Inu price could increase by 600%. However, unlike previous bull markets where the SHIB price grew in weeks, these gains are expected to happen over two years. This will see the price of Shiba inu reach a high of $0.00004930 by 2025. Everlodge Set To Democratize the Real Estate Industry Real estate is one of the biggest industries in the world, with a valuation of over $280 trillion. However, the high cost of properties has prevented investors from joining this profitable industry. However, Everlodge is launching to democratize this industry by building a blockchain property marketplace. Everlodge would allow every investor to participate in real estate investment with as little as $100. To achieve this, Everlodge will list properties on its marketplace. The title deeds and ownership documents of these listed properties will be digitized and minted as an NFT. The platform will then use fractionalization to divide the NFTs into smaller portions. These NFT fractions will act as shares in the properties and allow investors to buy as low as $100. In addition, the ecosystem also includes a Launchpad. Property developers can use the platform's Launchpad to raise funds for their upcoming real estate projects. This hybrid property co-ownership model of Everlodge provides nearly everyone the opportunity to finally own a piece of real estate. As a result, crypto analysts are hyper-bullish about the platform’s utility token, ELDG. Now trading at $0.023, ELDG has been projected to reach a value of $0.50 before the year’s end.

India's MAJOR Gaming Growth!

QYOU Media Inc

ValueTheMarkets News Commentary - The Indian gaming market is projected to rapidly grow in size, nearly tripling from $2.6bn to $8.6bn between 2022 and 2027 according to projections from Statista. Perhaps this is no surprise, considering the country's huge population of young consumers and rapid adoption of tech. This article will discuss the issue with reference to Alphabet Inc ( NASDAQ: GOOGL ), Tencent Holdings Ltd ( OTC: TCEHY ), Microsoft ( NASDAQ: MSFT ) and QYOU Media ( TSXV: QYOU ) ( OTCQB: QYOUF ). As this article has already shown, gaming is set for a massive uplift in India. A major part of this opportunity is the mobile gaming market, with the vast majority of gamers in the country using their smartphone to play. Indeed, 94% of gamers use their phones in India according to KPMG, compared to less than 10% using PC or consoles respectively. That's why we're looking at QYOU Media, Tencent, Microsoft and Alphabet from a largely mobile perspective. QYOU Media ( TSXV: QYOU ) ( OTCQB: QYOUF ) is an entertainment company with a focus on bringing creator-led content to the Indian market. While the business already owns a slew of successful TV channels across traditional and app-based platforms, it took the jump into the mobile gaming space at the start of this year. In January, the business acquired Maxamtech, a specialist in free-to-play mobile games and owner of the Gaming360 platform. Now, the business is moving into the real-money gaming space, taking advantage of its huge popularity in India. The business will launch a new version of its casual mobile gaming app, QGAMESMELA, which comes with 'freemium' capabilities. Players will be able to win cash prizes and awards via both free and real-money gaming engagements. With India's real-money gaming market expected to reach 60bn rupees by 2025, this looks like it could be an astute move from this rapidly evolving business. Alphabet Inc ( NASDAQ: GOOGL ) has a major opportunity in India due to the strong growth of app users in the country. Indeed, according to 42Matters, India is the top country in the world in terms of number of apps installed and used per month. The company has enjoyed huge growth in India, with its mobile play store seeing a 200% increase in active monthly users and an 80% jump in consumer spending in 2021 compared to 2019. While a large amount of app downloads are by gamers, with titles like Ludo King exceeding 500 million downloads, the company said in 2022 that it had also seen "stupendous growth" across categories like education, payments, health and entertainment. With 2022 representing the first year of declines in Google App Store revenues, the company could decide that focusing on a major potential market like India is a route to strong future growth. Tencent Holdings Ltd ( OTC: TCEHY ) is an absolute titan when it comes to mobile gaming. In India, the company owned PUBG Mobile, which WAS the top mobile gaming IP back in 2021. The company also owns Finnish videogame developer Supercell, makers of the Clash of Clans titles. This further demonstrates the Chinese multinational's tight grasp on the nation's mobile gaming space at the time. So, what's changed? September 2020 saw the Indian government banning titles like PUBG Mobile and other Chinese-owned apps, citing data privacy issues. Replacement versions of some titles have resurfaced, but the ban has damaged Tencent in the country. But Tencent is wading back into India, having launched new mobile title Undawn in the country back in June 2023. With no bans in place yet, despite noise from some interest groups, this could be the start of a new concerted push into the territory. Tech giant Microsoft ( NASDAQ: MSFT ) is another outfit which is pushing into the Indian mobile gaming market. This is largely due to the company's acquisition of Activision Blizzard, which bolsters its PC and console gaming offering but also crucially offers major new inroads into the mobile gaming space. As one of the biggest markets in the world for mobile gaming, India is sure to be a target for the company. The company will already have a strong presence in the nation. Research published by Statista in 2021 indicated that Activision Blizzard's growing share of the Indian gaming market would represent more than 14% of the total in 2022. Indeed, immensely popular mobile titles like Candy Crush are already under the company's wing and offer it significant opportunity. Additionally, the clear challenges already in place for Chinese competition mean that further growth is a realistic possibility. While its clear that India presents a huge opportunity for gaming companies, this article has outlined the radically different states some of the main competitors find themselves in. Tencent is dogged by uncertainty as it attempts to bounce back from mass bans, while Microsoft has suddenly become a key player. Alphabet's platform is seeing major growth and new kid on the block QYOU Media is astutely swooping in to corner the real-money gaming opportunity.

National Survey Reveals Women of All Ages Cite Mental Health as Their Number One Health Concern

LevLane

LevLane Advertising, an award-winning full-service agency headquartered in Philadelphia, has released the results of its 2023 Women’s Health Concerns Survey of 400 women, ages 18+, which explores how women are approaching various aspects of their health and wellness. The survey, which was conducted by a market research provider on behalf of LevLane, paints a concerning picture, as women report deprioritizing sexual/reproductive health and almost every other aspect of their well-being, while mental health concerns take priority. This is true even in the younger age groups where sexual health is traditionally considered as a primary concern (ages 18-34). Across all ages 18+, just 6% of all women reported sexual health as their number one priority. The majority of women (53%) reported mental health as one of their top three health concerns, with 26% saying that it was their number one concern. Stress management (45%), sleep health (33%) and heart health (32%) were among the other top concerns, while reproductive/sexual health (19%), diabetes (18%), pregnancy/post-partum (11%) and menopause/perimenopause (11%) were ranked lowest overall. Women 55+ were the only age group to report something other than mental health as their top concern. That cohort reported both heart health and stress management as tied for their number one priority. “Coming out of COVID, we expected to see a bump in mental health as a concern, but we were all taken aback by just how many women across all age groups cited it as their top concern,” said Liz Weir, chief marketing officer at LevLane. “Even in younger age groups, where we would expect to see more of an emphasis on sexual and reproductive health or pregnancy and post-partum, we found that women are putting those things on the back burner to prioritize mental health.” The study is the first in a series planned by the agency. The forthcoming surveys will continue to focus on specific aspects of women’s health with the goal of better understanding the broader women’s healthcare landscape. “In their efforts to address mental health concerns, an unintended consequence could be neglecting other very critical aspects of their well-being,” said Karla Loken, DO, OBGYN, FACOOG and chief medical officer for FEMSelect. “We need to address women’s health comprehensively; neglecting one area will ultimately lead to consequences in another. Women are juggling a lot of things, and this research is signaling that women need more support, including education and awareness on promoting a balanced approach to physical, mental and emotional health.” The study also found that many women are opting out of support, with half (50%) of the respondents saying they are not seeking support for their top concern/priority and have no intention of doing so. Additional Survey Findings: - 10% of Women 18-24 reported sexual and reproductive health as a top priority - 35% of women 35-44 said mental health was their top priority - Women 18-24 were the age group most concerned with cancer as a top 3 priority - Women 35-44 were the only age group to include obesity as a top 3 priority or concern - Women in the 18-34 bracket tend to start their health journeys with online search or through friends and family - Women 34+ tend to start their health journeys with their primary care physicians (PCPs) For complete survey results, please contact Lauren Stralo below.
