At the moment, the price of Bitcoin is fluctuating between $41,971.37 and $43,654.52 on the weekly price chart. A rise to $70,000 would signify an increase of 65%.

Data from CoinMarketCap showed that Polkadot coin has dropped 2.8% and 1.4% on the monthly and weekly price charts, respectively. The altcoin is currently fluctuating between $6.58 and $6.99.

How AI is Transforming Healthcare and Saving Lives

MarketJar

Artificial intelligence (AI) is completely transforming everyday life. From entertainment to transportation, AI is being used to make our lives easier and more efficient. But none of those applications compare to its life-altering impact on healthcare. AI is an absolute game-changer for the healthcare industry, helping save countless lives through precision medicine, robotics-assisted surgery, and connected devices. It’s also becoming increasingly valuable in identifying complex illnesses at an earlier stage. AI-powered diagnostics leverage machine learning algorithms to analyze diverse data like medical records, genetics, and scans for early disease detection by identifying subtle patterns and anomalies often missed by human doctors. AI's rapid and precise data processing highlights subtle health changes, potentially revealing underlying diseases or risk factors. For instance, AI can review mammograms to detect early-stage breast cancer not visible to the naked eye. Over the next five years, the AI healthcare market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 48.1%, jumping from $20.9 billion in 2024 to $148.4 billion by 2029. As Big Pharma companies roll out bold AI plans for the coming years, one company is developing and acquiring technology and clinical expertise to create an AI-driven medical powerhouse that supports doctors, curbs rising healthcare costs and improves patient outcomes. HEALWELL AI Inc. (TSX:AIDX) (OTCQX:HWAIF is a physician-led healthcare technology company that is focused on AI and data science for preventive care. In a whirlwind four months since its debut on the Toronto Stock Exchange, HEALWELL AI has rapidly gained financial strength, securing approximately $29.5 million and firmly establishing itself as a savvy capital allocator in the AI healthcare space after completing two transformative acquisitions. AI Accelerated Preventive Healthcare Late last year, HEALWELL AI secured a majority stake in Pentavere, a globally recognized, award-winning AI healthcare company specializing in identifying eligible patients for approved treatments. With a successful history of real-world evidence studies and key hospital network collaborations, Pentavere's DARWEN™ AI technology carries validation from global pharmaceutical leaders and has garnered recognition in renowned publications worldwide. The Pentavere deal will provide several key benefits including significant top-line revenue growth through Pentavere's established client base and successful commercialization of real-world evidence studies, strong partnerships with major hospital networks in Canada and the US to expand HEALWELL 's market reach and grant access to new patient demographics, and a team of AI engineers with invaluable to fortify the company's technological capabilities. Following the completion of the acquisition, Pentavere introduced DERMAID, an innovative Real-World Evidence (RWE) solution tailored for Dermatologists and life sciences firms. Leveraging the DARWEN™ AI platform, DERMAID extracts actionable clinical insights to enhance patient care decisions in dermatology. The product has quickly gained traction in the market and has already engaged in commercial activities with multiple leading pharmaceutical companies. HEALWELL AI Inc. (TSX:AIDX) (OTCQX:HWAIF also just finalized the acquisition of Intrahealth Systems, a multinational SaaS-based EHR (Electronic Health Record) provider supporting 15,000 clinicians that care for millions of patients in its global network across Canada, Australia and New Zealand. In 2024, Intrahealth is projected to generate over $12 million in revenue, showing double-digit organic growth. Historically, the company has maintained strong financial performance with over 80% gross margins, positive EBITDA, and positive cash flow. Moreover, more than 80% of its revenue comes from recurring sources, which are highly profitable. HEALWELL 's strategic vision involves a deep integration of its cutting-edge AI tools with Intrahealth's platform to pioneer a next-generation AI-powered EHR, aligning with Value-Based Care (VBC) trends and empowering healthcare providers to achieve better health outcomes at reduced costs. HEALWELL has solidified its support structure through a strategic partnership with WELL Health Technologies, the largest clinic group in Canada. WELL Health has invested in each of HEALWELL 's financings, making them the largest shareholder and helping position HEALWELL as a leader in AI-enabled healthcare technology in North America. The alliance between WELL Health and HEALWELL led to the launch of the WELL AI Decision Support service for healthcare providers. This new service is designed to be highly adaptable and is expected to grow over time. Initially, WELL AI Decision Support will enable healthcare providers to accurately identify over 150 complex or rare diseases that are often overlooked by traditional methods. HEALWELL AI is actively pursuing a robust pipeline of potential acquisitions, having evaluated over 100 opportunities to date.

Hive Digital sees 146% increase in Gross Operating Margins as company releases Q3 earnings report

HIVE Digital Technologies

Hive Digital Technologies CEO Aydin Kilic joined Steve Darling from Proactive to announce the company's earnings report for the third quarter. Kilic revealed that the company achieved remarkable revenue of $30.1 million during this quarter, primarily attributed to mining 830 Bitcoin. Notably, the Gross Operating Margin stood at an impressive 38%, translating to $11.3 million in income from digital currency mining operations. Kilic highlighted that these figures represent a significant 146% increase in Gross Operating Margin compared to the previous quarter. He attributed the stronger Bitcoin mining economics to the rally in Bitcoin prices, potentially fuelled by the news surrounding Bitcoin ETFs in the United States and the subsequent SEC approval on January 10, 2024. In addition to revenue from Bitcoin mining, the company realized $0.9 million in revenue during the quarter from its GPU-powered High Performance Computing business unit. This segment leverages the company's GPUs for various AI computations, including inference and fine-tuning of large language models. Overall, these impressive financial results underscore Hive Digital Technologies' strong performance in the cryptocurrency mining sector and its strategic diversification into other high-growth areas such as AI computation.

Bitcoin To Surge To $70k As Traders Look Forward To the 'Year of the Dragon', Sui and KangaMoon To Lead the Altcoin Rally

Kangamoon

East Asia is preparing to celebrate the start of the Year of the Dragon in the next few weeks. Crypto traders are excited, anticipating a major rally for Bitcoin as the year is considered one of the luckiest and most prosperous animals in the Chinese Zodiac. Ahead of the celebration, Markus Thielen has forecasted that Bitcoin could peak above $70k before the year ends. Meanwhile, two altcoins, Sui (SUI) and KangaMoon (KANG), are gearing up to lead the altcoin market rally in 2024. Markus Thielen Forecasts a Surge To $70,000 for Bitcoin (BTC) Markus Thielen, a famous crypto analyst at 10X Research, predicts that the Bitcoin (BTC) price will rise to $70,000 by the end of the year. This implies a 65% increase over the current $42,500 - $43,000 range, where the Bitcoin price has remained unchanged for more than a week. Thielen depends on his positive projections on strengthening macro conditions, the U.S. elections, monetary tailwinds, and growing demand for spot Bitcoin ETFs. His claims are bolstered by the increasing attitude in the cryptocurrency industry. On February 10, East Asia will begin the Year of the Wood Dragon. Crypto traders anticipate that the crypto market will suffer the same fate as one of the Chinese Zodiac's luckiest and most affluent animals. As the Bitcoin price increases, the altcoin market is expected to surge in 2024. Sui (SUI) TVL Sets New ATH, Price To Follow With the broader crypto market looking bullish, Sui (SUI) is one of the top altcoins that could take advantage. Over the past few months, the Sui network has grown at an incredible rate, with its total value locked (TVL) increasing by more than 1,000%. According to DeFiLlama data, Sui has a TVL of more than $515 million, making it the ninth-largest DeFi project. The growth of the Sui network can be linked to the rapid development of dApps with real-world use cases. With the network continuing to grow, experts expect the Sui coin to soar in 2024. Year-to-date (YTD), Sui has gained more than 100% to trade at the $1.5 range. However, as the network growth continues, a 30% surge to take SUI to a new ATH is expected, making it one of the top altcoins to buy. KangaMoon (KANG) To Dominate the 2024 Altcoin Market Rally In the upcoming altcoin market rally, KangaMoon (KANG) has been picked by experts as one of the top altcoins to watch. Built around an exciting new concept, the KANG token has been predicted to record a parabolic 100x price surge before the year ends. The DeFi project has attracted this kind of prediction because of its unique Social Finance (Social-Fi) network in the works. The platform also combines elements of play-to-earn, NFTs, and meme coins. This Social-Fi ecosystem aims to become the ultimate hub for meme coin enthusiasts. KangaMoon was designed to encourage interaction among meme coin enthusiasts and reward them for their participation. As the players participate in weekly, monthly, and quarterly challenges and special giveaways, they will earn KANG tokens and other rewards. The greater the participation, the more rewards a user stands to earn. The real-world application of KangaMoon has drawn a ton of interest to the project and is why market experts anticipate its launch. Given the 100x predictions, KANG is considered very cheap, as it is only priced at $0.0075 per coin. Discover the Exciting Opportunities of the Kangamoon (KANG) Presale Today!
