BridgeFT

BridgeFT, a cloud-native, API-first wealth infrastructure software company that enables financial institutions, fintech innovators, and registered investment advisors (RIAs) to deliver better, data-driven outcomes for their clients, announced today that it has been awarded the Data Aggregation award at the Annual WealthBriefing WealthTech Americas Awards 2024. The annual WealthBriefing WealthTech Americas Awards program recognizes the most innovative and exceptional firms, teams and individuals. The awards have been designed to showcase outstanding organizations grouped by specialism and geography which the prestigious panel of independent judges deemed to have “demonstrated innovation and excellence during the last year.” “We are thrilled and honored that the reach and impact of our WealthTech API has been recognized with this prestigious award,” said Joe Stensland, Chief Executive Officer of BridgeFT. “This is a credit to our whole team and to the many partners and clients who have chosen us to help power their own wealthtech innovations.” BridgeFT’s WealthTech API is the industry’s first WealthTech-as-a-Service platform, offering a single, open API to trade-ready, multi-custodial data, advanced analytics, and application services. WealthTech API eliminates the need for individual data feeds from a range of custodians and back-office providers, enabling wealth management firms and wealthtech application providers to create differentiated, next-generation wealth management applications. Custodians hold a range of data that drives the investment ecosystem, from positions and balances to client holdings and trades. Each custodian has its own data policy, structure, and systems, forcing fintech companies and other financial institutions to build custom programs to ingest the data. This adds both development time and cost. By simplifying access to the underlying data, WealthTech API allows financial innovators to rethink and streamline their own tech stacks and create differentiated tools and solutions for their own clients using BridgeFT’s applications and developer-to-developer support. The WealthBriefing WealthTech Americas Awards are part of a global program run by WealthBriefing, and its sister publications WealthBriefingAsia and Family Wealth Report, encompassing all of the world’s major wealth management centers.

Meme Moguls

The cryptocurrency market has seen a lot of change recently. One specific change caught people’s attention: the recent developments of Optimism (OP). After an official X tweet, the project got much more interest and value. Tron (TRX) and Meme Moguls (MGLS) are also doing great. Many analysts hint that MGLS, now in Stage 5 of its presale, may become the next 100x meme coin in 2024. Let’s find out why. Optimism (OP): Official X Post Triggers a Rally Recently, Optimism (OP) has been making headlines. Notably, the official X account posted, “Optimism always wins.” After this post, interest in the Optimism crypto increased. In terms of this altcoin’s value movement, it has jumped from $3.65 to $3.99 in the past week alone. Its market cap grew from $3.49B to $3.81B during that time. Additionally, the technical analysis for Optimism paints a bullish picture, as 23 technical indicators are flashing green. Due to all this bullish Optimism news, experts in the crypto field predict that it may hit $5.09 within Q2 of 2024. Tron (TRX): TocketPocket Now Supports USDT Payment Meanwhile, Tron (TRX) has also shown some exciting developments. For instance, TocketPocket announced that those without Tron may now use USDT for payments. With this development, traders will pay any Tron Network fee with USDT and receive 20 TRX for future use. This Tron news may trigger a rally for this crypto. Regarding its value movement, Tron has surged from $0.12 to $0.13 in the past seven days. In that period, its market cap has increased from $11.03B to $12.12B. Thus, market analysts forecast a price of $0.18 for this altcoin within Q1 of 2024. Meme Moguls (MGLS): To Dominate the Meme Coin Market Meme Moguls (MGLS) is gaining momentum, particularly during its ongoing presale, which has raised close to $2.5M. The sudden interest in the project comes from how promising MGLS will be as a meme coin in the crypto market. Utility is scarce, but this project provides some real value. Its capability to perform two tasks simultaneously sets it apart from other meme coins. Acting as a governance token and an in-game currency for the upcoming Meme Moguls play-to-earn game (P2E). The team behind the project designed it precisely to remove the meme coin narrative that most investors are tired of hearing, offering actual utility. The Meme Moguls P2E game promises an immersive experience for players. Participants will delve into virtual stock trading experiences, gaining insights into wealth-building and investments. They may even stake the MGLS tokens or engage in the Moguls World - a metaverse experience connecting worldwide players. Currently priced at $0.0036 during Stage 5 of its presale, MGLS has already provided early buyers with a 90% ROI. With a Uniswap listing scheduled for Q1 2024, experts are optimistic about a potential 100x surge soon. The ongoing 30% deposit bonus during the presale further enhances the appeal for potential investors looking to capitalize on this promising meme coin. Will Meme Moguls Leave Optimism and Tron in the Dust? The low market cap of $10.8M positions Meme Moguls for accelerated growth compared to established players like Optimism and Tron. With the potential for faster surges in value due to reduced new fund requirements, Meme Moguls may dominate the meme coin space. Visit Meme Moguls Meme Moguls and all cryptocurrencies are subject to significant price fluctuations and volatility. Investing in or holding Meme Moguls tokens carries substantial risks, including the potential for total loss. Past performance should not be considered indicative of future results.

X Challenges YouTube With New Ad-Targeting Features

MarketJar

Elon Musk's X is rolling out enhanced advertiser targeting features to attract video creators and compete more effectively against YouTube. X, formerly known as Twitter, revealed that advertisers will soon be able to run ads before videos from their chosen creators, starting later this month. 1 These new ads will be available in the main timeline as well as on a creator's profile, offering X's 80,000 creators an additional way to monetize their videos through a revenue-sharing model. While X declined to disclose the exact percentage of ad revenue it will share with creators, the move aligns with its efforts to support creators financially, having previously paid out over $20 million. For comparison, Google's YouTube typically gives creators a 55% share of ad revenue related to their videos. In recent months, Musk has been steering X towards a focus on premium video content by partnering with notable figures like former CNN host Don Lemon and World Wrestling Entertainment to produce shows for the platform. Musk has expressed his ambition for X to rival YouTube and has personally reached out to some creators. Last month, Musk praised YouTube star Jimmy Donaldson, known as MrBeast, for posting his first video on X. Musk's efforts are aimed at regaining marketers' trust after his tumultuous takeover of the platform led to a decline of more than 50% in advertising revenue. Last year, ad sales were estimated to be around $2.5 billion, falling short of the company's $3 billion target, as reported by Bloomberg. Over the past decade, advertising budgets have shifted from cable TV to online platforms due to changes in consumer behavior and technology. Online ads offer better targeting, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness, driving brands to connect with audiences digitally. This new industry has also turned the spotlight on streamers, particularly those streaming video game-related content. Right now, Gen Z and Gen Alpha are spending roughly 20% of their free time playing video games or watching streamers play. 2 That number is expected to continue rising as current players grow up and new generations enter the gaming world. As viewers continue turning their attention towards streamers, the industry is growing like wildfire and Canada's premier esports titan OverActive Media (TSXV:OAM) (OTC:OAMCF) is staking its claim on the growing audience. OverActive Media is building an integrated global sports, media and entertainment company for today’s generation of fans, with a focus on esports, video games, live events and content creation. Building an Entertainment Powerhouse for Today’s Generation of Fans OverActive Media (TSXV:OAM) (OTC:OAMCF) owns and manages team franchises in professional esports leagues, including the Toronto Ultra in Call of Duty League, the MAD Lions for the League of Legends EMEA Championship and the Toronto Defiant in the Overwatch Champion Series. Last month, OverActive Media increased its position in the market through the acquisition of two of the most popular esports teams, KOI and Movistar Riders. The deal, which is the largest in the company’s history, broadens OverActive Media ’s (TSXV:OAM) (OTC:OAMCF) global footprint to fast-growing international markets and is expected to bring in an additional $10 to $12 million in annual revenues. The acquisition also includes a diverse range of top-tier Esports assets and a powerhouse of social media clout including over 100 million dedicated followers. KOI is a major European Esports franchise co-founded by streamer superstar Ibai Llanos, one of the Top 5 Streamers in the World 3 and former FC Barcelona football legend Gerard Piqué. Movistar Riders is a leading Esports club in Spain that boasts a multi-year partnership with Spanish multinational telecommunications company Telefónica. Since the acquisition of KOI, OverActive Media (TSXV:OAM) (OTC:OAMCF) has experienced a surge in viewership across its gaming franchises, including League of Legends, VALORANT, Counter Strike 2, and Call of Duty. When the newly formed Mad Lions KOI team kicked off the League of Legends EMEA Championship (LEC) Winter Split in January, their regular season match reached 741,000 peak viewers, making it the most watched LEC match since summer 2021. KOI co-founder Ibai also contributed to this growth, generating over 4.7 million views on Twitch during a single MAD Lions KOI game in January. This viewership beat the finale of Succession, the Emmy-winning HBO series that drew 2.93 million viewers across all platforms on its debut night. The team set another record during the League of Legends EMEA Championship (LEC) on February 18, with 830,816 viewers tuning in, marking the highest viewership for a regular season match in LEC history. In comparison, NHL games are averaging 471,000 viewers. The extended multi-year agreement with Telefonica stands as OverActive Media's largest financial partnership, signaling strong confidence and stability. With backing from renowned brands and personalities like Bell, Kappa, Red Bull, TD, Razer, SCUF, AMD, Ibai Llanos, and Gerard Piqué, OverActive Media's partnership portfolio is both impressive and strategic. OverActive Media maintains a healthy balance sheet with a strong cash position of C$9.7 million with no debt, and that doesn’t even include the C$8.3 million from its Overwatch League exit - a combined impact of C$18 million.

The Future Of Transportation? How Iteris (NASDAQ: ITI) Has Been Driving Innovation And Helping Set Standards In The Connected And Automated Vehicle Space

Benzinga

By Austin DeNoce, Benzinga Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs) seem poised to revolutionize the future of transportation through massive improvements in safety, efficiency and sustainability. The technologies surrounding this innovation will enable vehicles to communicate with each other and with traffic infrastructure, offering a compelling vision of a future where traffic flows more smoothly, accidents are far less common and all road users, including pedestrians and bicyclists, are safer. And behind every great innovation and its successful deployment is a growing industry led by companies spearheading critical advancements to shape it into a reality. Iteris’s Role In CAV Technology Iteris, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI) is an infrastructure management company advancing CAV technology to help create an interconnected system of smart roads that keeps transportation safer and more efficient. Iteris acts as the brain for these advanced frameworks, facilitating a more communicative transportation system and allowing entities like the Department of Transportation (USDOT) to manage roadways even better. One of Iteris's significant contributions to this potential transformation is a new technology called Vantage CV TM. This technology is like a smart assistant for intersections, helping to prevent accidents by allowing cars and the road to talk to each other through vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication. It works by collecting information about traffic from Iteris's advanced traffic detection systems and then sending safety messages to vehicles on the road. This means drivers can get warnings about dangers like people walking in the street or cars that might run a red light. Not all vehicles are equipped with V2X capabilities, but certain vehicles can be quickly equipped with this technology – including school buses or maintenance trucks – to make them safer right away. As the technology advances, Iteris is hopeful of a world where all vehicles will eventually be capable of communicating with each other and the roads around them. Spearheading CAV Deployment In terms of deployment, Iteris is playing a crucial role in the advancement of CAV technology, significantly influencing the development of industry standards. Through its collaboration with the USDOT, Iteris has been instrumental in updating and enhancing the Architecture Reference for Cooperative and Intelligent Transportation (ARC-IT). This work integrates connected vehicle technologies with existing intelligent operation guidelines within the ARC-IT framework, aiming to ensure these innovations adhere to regulatory standards. This effort not only supports the USDOT's research but also facilitates real-world application of CAV technologies through initiatives like the Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program. ARC-IT also serves as an essential resource for envisioning a smarter, more integrated transportation system by offering a detailed roadmap for employing technology to improve travel safety, efficiency and sustainability. With over 150 service packages, ARC-IT provides a comprehensive guide for addressing real-life traffic challenges. All this put together clearly demonstrates Iteris's leadership in the CAV industry as well as its commitment to fostering transportation technology that is both innovative and accessible. The Future Of Transportation? It may sound like science fiction, but transportation is being transformed by technologies like vehicle-to-everything communication and self-driving cars. Artificial intelligence (AI) is also playing a critical role in this transition, enabling lightning-fast analysis and the interpretation of vast amounts of transportation data. Ultimately, these advancements should lead to a transportation system that's digital, data-driven and smarter. And with AI's ability to learn and adapt, it can enhance current systems for better traffic flow, safety and efficiency with ease – which will allow for proactive management while improving the safety of self-driving cars beyond today's vehicles. If nothing else, Iteris’s efforts in the CAV space, from its role in developing ARC-IT to its innovative solutions for traffic management and safety, underscore the company’s integral position in the transition toward and deployment of smarter, safer and more efficient transportation systems. As the industry moves forward and road network intelligence progresses, Iteris’s contributions are likely going to continue playing a vital role in the development and implementation of CAV technologies, contributing to the overall enhancement of road safety and efficiency and helping deliver a safer future.
