Much Anticipated Crypto Futures Trading Is Coming Soon To PrimeXBT

Benzinga

The time traders have been anxiously awaiting is almost here: the much anticipated Crypto Futures platform is about to debut on PrimeXBT. In advance of a full public release, our team of traders and analysts got to test drive the platform and check out the new design, all-new features, and more. We must warn you: reading the preview below will make waiting a lot harder because initial feedback is that the product is a game-changer for the award-winning cryptocurrency trading platform. Find out why early testers of PrimeXBT Crypto Futures are raving about what’s to come in the very near future – no pun intended! Improving On An Already Near-Perfect Formula “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it" is the stance that most trading platforms take. PrimeXBT’s current margin trading experience is about as good as it gets. The cryptocurrency-based platform has achieved great success in only five years in the market, surviving two bear markets and winning a number of industry awards. Despite the near-flawless experience, PrimeXBT is continuously making improvements to every aspect of its platform, from copy trading to the mobile app, trading tools, and much more. The company has been teasing a big “future” announcement, and at the start of 2023, announced a Big Bounty Contest to test a brand new Crypto Futures product. PrimeXBT handed out over $100,000 in prizes to users who helped refine the experience and get it ready for a public debut in the coming weeks. During this testing phase, we gained exclusive access and were able to try out the platform ahead of the public launch. Long And Short The Most Popular Cryptocurrencies PrimeXBT Crypto Futures has an updated layout and design, which can be customized to suit each user’s personal preference. Simply click to toggle on or off each section of the layout, such as the watch list, positions, or new additions like the order book, which can be used to help strategize around what other market participants are doing. A wide range of cryptocurrency trading pairs is available, featuring popular coins like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin, Litecoin, and more. Additional altcoins are available from important categories like DeFi, GameFi, Metaverse, and others. Essential tools and features users are familiar with have carried over into the Crypto Futures platform. Long and short positions are still available via market, limit, or stop orders. Advanced order types and risk management tools are once again included. All-New Margin Allocation System Gives Traders More Control One of the most significant and notable changes is to the margin allocation system. PrimeXBT, in the past, offered a cross-margin system at up to 200x leverage on cryptocurrencies. How much leverage was applied to a position was based on sizing. In the new and improved Crypto Futures product, leverage can be applied via a cross or isolated margin system and adjusted via a sliding scale. The margin allocation system and how much leverage to apply can be modified at any time and will impact all available positions and pending orders. The new system gives more precise control over how much risk is being applied to the capital exposed, allowing for the fine-tuning of trading to suit any risk appetite. All information is made crystal clear when an order is placed or modified, so traders always understand the impact of their decisions. Getting Technical With Powerful PrimeXBT Trading Tools Created for both beginners and the trading professional, PrimeXBT Crypto Futures features built-in technical analysis software from industry leader TradingView. Traders never have to leave the platform to enjoy best-in-class charting tools. Draw trend lines, turn on technical indicators, or look for the direction of the trend. Orders that are placed appear on the charts in real-time, giving traders an accurate look at the bigger picture to determine stop-loss placement, profit targets, and more. Open orders are also added to the area below the chart, providing a snapshot of the details of each trade. Information includes the open price, liquidation price, unrealized PnL, margin type, and much more. PrimeXBT will continue to offer essential support services such as PrimeXBT Trading Academy, where traders can learn how to use the tools and information above. The educational website is filled with market updates, trading tips, and more. PrimeXBT will continue focusing on its copy trading experience and offer weekly trading competitions through PrimeXBT Contests. Preview Summary Other aspects of PrimeXBT also aren’t going anywhere. For example, access to traditional markets like commodities, stock indices, and forex currencies will remain available separately from the Crypto Futures platform. The same commitment to customer service and quality and the same reliable trading engine will power the new and improved platform. The PrimeXBT mobile application for Android and iPhone will eventually receive an update to include the PrimeXBT Crypto Futures platform when it arrives in the coming weeks. Interesting users who cannot wait to get their hands on the all-new PrimeXBT trading product can register for a free account today and be ready the second it goes live.

Screencastify, a leader in $2B video creation space, positioned to thrive in 2023 with new Leadership team and CEO

Screencastify

Screencastify, the leading end-to-end video creation platform, today announced major milestones and company momentum as it continues to deliver the simplest screen capture and video editing capabilities to users around the globe. Boasting significant leadership changes, including newly appointed CEO Vishal Shah, Screencastify has established itself as a front-runner for creators’ video needs. Screencastify, an original video creation tool via internet browser, has become an end-to-end platform that makes recording, editing, sharing, assessing, and viewing video simple and accessible, so anyone can become a more effective communicator. More than 12.4 million users worldwide have used Screencastify to make nearly 450 million videos since 2016. New CEO Vishal Shah has been closely involved with Screencastify since its early days when LearnCore, the sales enablement start up he co-founded as CEO in 2010, was seeking to expand its video creation capability. As part of that collaboration Shah took a board seat with Screencastify. After exiting LearnCore, he took on the position of interim President at Screencastify before being appointed CEO today. Joining the CEO, Screencastify is also announcing the appointment of veteran Paul Ray as CTO while Alex Stepien is promoted from CRO to President & CRO. Ray has almost two decades software development experience with senior roles at Chicago Booth, former CTO at LearnCore and until recently a leader at Amazon. Stepien has led revenue operations and held senior leadership roles including as the former CEO at Cappex. He joined Screencastify in 2021 as CRO. Together the team is positioned to innovate and grow in this booming market. “In March 2020, the demand for online video communication creation went through the roof,” said Vishal Shah, CEO of Screencastify. “The sudden switch to remote learning saw educators — particularly in K-12 schools and higher education — turn to Screencastify’s accessible, intuitive, and low-cost video creation solution to enhance synchronous learning as well as deliver asynchronous — self-paced — learning options. Screencastify is only scratching the surface on how we can help the people who are educating the world now and in the future.” The company met the demand spurred by the pandemic, growing the number of videos made daily by 500%, increasing daily usage by 340% and elevating the number of videos created each month from 2 million before March of 2020 to 20 million videos created monthly less than two months later. Today, Screencastify is being used by educators in more than 70% of U.S. school districts. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Shah notes “The acceptance and widespread adoption of hybrid learning as well as the growing usage of video in the classroom and for a variety of training and instructional uses in the workplace means the future is very exciting for Screencastify, which gave the world its first easy-to-use browser-based screen capture and video creation tool, and I’m delighted the business has asked me to continue the momentum.” According to HubSpot, online video communication adoption has increased 96% over the past three years, with educators, their students, mid-size businesses employees, and individual influencers and creators being the primary drivers of the trend. Screencastify stepped up as the leader in on-demand video creation by building the simplest and most intuitive end-to-end video creation platform for any user. As workplaces embrace hybrid and remote environments, the need for asynchronous video continues to grow. Screencastify has proven it can meet the high demand for a simple, on-demand video platform and will continue to embrace the challenge of meeting the needs for any school or workplace. “We have an opportunity to make video communication simpler and improve human-to-human interaction in a new era of remote working and living — but also one where video plays a greater part in communication at school, at work, and in the social lives of young people especially,” added Vishal Shah. Screencastify has been laser-focused on improving the customer experience with capabilities such as Submit that engages students and allows them to securely create screen and webcam recordings without the extension. The video is then automatically sent to the teacher. Shah notes that, “It's by far the easiest way for students to record and submit videos, as we see teachers encourage students to create more videos.” He adds that Screencastify has, “An exciting lineup of product enhancements and features in 2023 and 2024. One of our big priorities is to keep things simple while building out our capabilities. Screencastify has an enormous base of content creators and we will continue to make life easier for them. Corporate educators are also a key focus for us, with the increasing adoption of digital learning tools and video being accepted as a compelling tool in marketing and sales collateral.” K-12 and post-secondary school has been a key market for Screencastify, but other industries, businesses, and social content creators are also using the tool to create on-demand videos for purposes as diverse as onboarding, engaging customers, board presentations, or simply sharing messages and information between friends and online communities. “The edtech market will only grow,” Vishal Shah says, noting projections from GlobalData show compound annual growth rate (CAGR) growth of 16% between 2021 and 2026, and crossing $400 billion in 2026. “We believe we have a special product and I look forward to continuing to pioneer video services for our customers and grow our customer base. We are ambitious for the future.” About Screencastify Established in 2016, Screencastify is the leading end-to-end video creation platform that makes recording, editing, sharing, assessing, and viewing video more simple for everyone.

A Mandate For Murder

Hezi Kalo

Inside testimony – a captivating historical document on the intelligence picture held by Israel’s General Security Service in the days preceding the murder “The public atmosphere is one of bloodletting, vituperation, and inflamed passions. A person, not necessarily known, not necessarily a settler, may rise and do something. We are marking potential risk factors based on expressions or on assessments. We make lists and albums of risk factors. I am absolutely worried. I believe that the atmosphere may produce assassins who are currently unknown to us.” These words were spoken by Hezi Kalo, then head of the non-Arab division of the Israeli General Security Service, at a special meeting dealing with the assessment of threats upon then-Prime Minister of Israel, Yitzhak Rabin, three weeks before Rabin’s murder on November 4 th, 1995. Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, may his memory be a blessing, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate for 1994, was murdered by a religious Israeli Jew named Yigal Amir, who opposed the Oslo Accords and decided to murder the Prime Minister in order to stop the peace process. Over 25 years after the murder, Kalo returns to the horrible period preceding the murder, to the precedents and the incitement that enabled it, and the dozens of reports by Israeli intelligence services, chief among them the GSS, revealed for the first time in the book A Mandate For Murder, teaching us across time how many warnings were given – and how few were heeded in practice. In this book, the head of the non-Arab division of Israel’s General Security Service offers his version of the events surrounding the murder for the very first time. Kalo, who as head of the division carried a General-equivalent rank, touches upon the raw nerves and the exposed underbelly of Israeli society, discussing on the issues that roiled the public in the days preceding the murder of Prime Minister Rabin – from the deployment of undercover agent Avishay Raviv (“Champagne”) by the General Security Service, to covert operations taken by intelligence and security agencies, which were supposed to prevent the worst from happening – but failed to do so. Please find a link to two chapters from the book.: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1QE4uO_yzyNOTFwy15I2Eg9G5JdxfdlOx/view?usp=sharing A Mandate For Murder is available for purchase on Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/Mandate-Murder-Officer-Political-Assassination-ebook/dp/B0BQJQTR2Y/ 3.99$ kindle: Paperback: 14.99$ Hezi Kalo Hezi Kalo worked for the Israeli General Security Service for twenty-five years, rising in the ranks to the position of Division Head, equivalent to a military General. There, he served as the head of the Non-Arab Division, a position he held before and in the aftermath of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin’s assassination. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of Haifa and Graduated cum laude from the National Security College. Kalo has also worked as Deputy Director General for Clalit health services – the largest civilian employer in Israel at the time – and Director General of the Bank of Israel. He is married to Aliza, and they have three children and nine grandchildren. From the Author This book was written with the knowledge that in several years' time, history could be rewritten by deniers, whose actions might legitimize another murder. For 26 years I've waited, until my work in the public sector was done, so I could document those events in our history. Through the years, false narratives arose surrounding the circumstances of the murder. I am afraid that with time, next generations might not know who Yitzhak Rabin was, and why a prime minister was murdered in Israel. History is being rewritten, with precious few left to face the crashing waves. In this era of information, where fact and fiction seem to mix more easily, this book is a paramount cornerstone of democracy. It describes, in detail, the events documented in real time, without missing a thing - for better and for worse. There are difficult questions surrounding intelligence operations and counteractions committed before the murder, which I tried answering as truthfully as I could.

Winners (WNRS) Plans Further Expansion & Cancels 1 for 20 Reverse Split

WINNERS INC

McapMediaWire - Winners, Inc. (OTC: WNRS ) through its operating subsidiaries, provides sports betting enthusiasts with high-quality content, analysis, research, data, and guidance for popular betting sports, announced it is taking steps to expand its product line of Handicapping Services to include same-game parlays, prop betting and/or in-game sports wagering. Furthermore, the company decided to withdraw its application for a 1:20 reverse split of its common stock with FINRA. The Company withdrew the FINRA application considering its strategic expansion plans that include the increase of its product line and potential acquisitions that fit the company’s business model. Wayne Allyn Root, CEO of Winners Inc., stated, “We are currently exploring different options to expand our product line of Handicapping Services which will include same-game parlays, prop betting and/or in-game sports wagering. The expansion of services will add additional revenue streams to the company. Also, we have recently done a buy-back of the outstanding shares by over 50%, creating a very attractive share structure, and if you combine that with our plans for aggressive growth, a reverse split just doesn’t make sense to us. I look forward to updating our progress in the coming weeks." Same-game parlays, or SGPs, have emerged as not only one of the most popular bets on the board for bettors but also one of the most profitable for bookmakers. In last year's Super Bowl, 31% of bets placed before the game kicked off were same-game parlays at BetRivers, Barstool and other U.S. sportsbooks powered by Kambi, an international sports betting platform provider. At sportsbook PointsBet, 22% of all bets placed on the Super Bowl were SGPs. Both companies were anticipating even more Super Bowl SGPs this year. Not bad for something that sportsbooks in the U.S. only began accepting a few years ago. Prop betting is the act of betting on an event that takes place inside of or during a ga tome or sporting event. Prop bets involve betting on events that take place inside the game but will differ from traditional point spread and total bets that deal only with the final outcome. A better way to think about it is like this. While a point spread or total bet asks you a specific question about the end result of a contest, a prop bet asks you a question about a result that will take place inside the game or event but isn’t directly tied to the final score. Prop bets expand our betting options as they allow us to bet on different elements of a contest. Player performance, team totals, who will score first and who will score last, are just some of the examples of the opportunities that prop bets provide us. Live in-game betting is one of the most recent technological advancements in legal sports betting and one that has greatly improved the overall experience of sports betting. Essentially, live betting allows fans to bet on in-game outcomes while the game is being played. Before the introduction of live betting, all bets had to be locked in prior to the start of the game, but telecommunications technology and advanced analytics algorithms now allow sportsbooks to monitor the game and recalculate odds in real time. While live betting is a newer feature, it will likely prove popular in introducing sports betting to a younger, more tech-savvy generation of bettors. VegasWinners is a licensed sports gambling affiliate that intends to drive traffic to gaming operators for commission. VegasWinners is currently licensed in several states and has made application in additional states. It is the intent of VegasWinners to get licensed in all states that allow online sports gambling.

The global sports betting market accounted for USD 83.65 billion in 2022 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.3% from 2023 to 2030 as reported by Grand View Research. The demand for sports betting is driven by factors such as the major shift in the regulatory landscape of the global gambling sector, the penetration of connected devices, and the developing digital infrastructure. The global sports sector has been greatly influenced by the COVID-19 pandemic due to restrictions on sporting activities across the globe. However, online sports betting gained popularity during the pandemic due to an upsurge in eSports and similar forms of betting. In addition, increased usage of smartphones has led to the wide availability and accessibility of sports betting, consequently propelling the global market. For instance, according to a recent survey from Uplatform, a sports betting and casino operating platform, mobile devices accounted for about 70% of online betting revenue in 2020. ABOUT WINNERS, INC. Winners, Inc. (OTC: WNRS) through its subsidiaries is engaged in the business of sports gambling research, data, advice, analysis and predictions utilizing all available media, advertising formats and its database of users.

Pepper Content boosts content marketing community with Pepper AI

Pepper Content

Ahead of the release of its much awaited Content Marketing Platform, Pepper Content, is all set to launch its AI-powered chatbot modeled on ChatGPT, but specifically for content marketers. Pepper AI is designed like an assisted chat-like interface but its capabilities go far beyond that of ChatGPT. While the latter solves wide ranging problems and is known for its generic advice on matters, Pepper AI is powered by data that is specific to the content marketing niche, making it a subject matter expert, available at the tap of a few buttons for content marketers familiar with the field. The final objective is to offer curated solutions to content marketers and assist them in day-to-day tasks. Pepper is a content company at its heart and understands the marketing world inside-out. Its deep focus on technology has allowed the pivot into the fast-trending generative AI space, making its latest product the one to watch in the content marketing space. “We believe that our expertise in content and technology that enables marketers and our large network of global content talent has set us up to be frontrunners in this race to revolutionize content marketing” says Rishabh Shekhar, Co-Founder and COO, Pepper Content. The sweet spot between AI, content and human expertise Pepper AI is set at the intersection of AI and human creativity, playing to each others strengths. It leverages AI’s speed and ability to learn and combines it with human creativity and excellence through a global talent platform, so as to bring out the best of both worlds. A Personalized Chatbot for Content Marketers Features and the Pepper AI advantage Pepper AI is essentially a chatbot modeled along the pain points of content marketers. The interactive AI-assisted chat experience leads you down a tree-based categorization system with meaningful workflows. The overall idea is to not just provide information and insights, but to make them actionable and fit them intuitively into your content marketing workflow. Key features include Personalized inputs that understand you and your business:Unlike generic statements, our AI-assisted chatbot takes into account data from external sources like your company website to provide a highly contextual output that is tailored to your business needs, saving you the time and effort to set context every time. A feature we believe will be immensely useful for enterprise and growing SMBs. Workflow-first approach: Instead of working in siloes where a tool simply assists in AI writing or one aspect of the content marketing process, Pepper AI is built into a content marketing workflow, a platform that manages the entire content marketing process. Content marketing templates curated by in-house experts: Key pain points have been identified and presented as single-click templates to help content marketers act fast in addition to templatizing useful prompts to help avoid the blank page blues. “We launched Peppertype.ai two years ago - an AI content writing platform that has grown to over 450,000+ users. This was way before generative AI and ChatGPT were the talk of the town. I believe this early adopter advantage has given us deep insights into the possibilities of AI when it comes to content marketing. Pepper AI is just another step in that direction.” says Anirudh Singla, Co-founder and CEO, Pepper Content ChatGPT vs Pepper AI: What gives Pepper AI the edge? ChatGPT is a powerful technology that has opened up a world of possibilities in the generative AI space in the past few months. However, its limitations like its inability to provide highly personalized responses and the onus it puts on the user to derive maximum value from the tool, leaves marketers wanting more. This is where Pepper AI can fill in the gaps - it utilizes multiple data sources and APIs of tools like Google Analytics and SEMrush to name a few, to produce an output that is personalized to your business and its needs. ChatGPT is a great starting point but can only take your content creation efforts 30% of the way. Pepper AI on the other hand, with its workflow-first experience enables marketers throughout the process, with content creation being a very small part of the larger content marketing puzzle. About Pepper Content Pepper Content is a content marketing stack that combines a powerful Content Marketing Platform with an expert-led, global talent marketplace. It enables enterprises and SMBs to streamline their content marketing efforts with the help of state-of-the-art AI-powered tools that supercharge every aspect of the content marketing workflow, from content creation to operations and analytics.

Starbucks Shareholder Seeks Removal of Howard Schultz as Director; Urges Company to Be Transparent About China Risks

National Legal & Policy Center

Ahead of Starbucks Corporation ’s annual meeting on March 23, National Legal and Policy Center is calling upon its fellow shareholders to support its proposal to provide greater transparency about the company’s risks of doing business in China, and to join NLPC in opposition to the reelection of outgoing CEO Howard Schultz to the board of directors. NLPC is sponsoring an “Annual Report on Company Operations in China” resolution at the meeting, which seeks transparency for shareholders that addresses “the nature and extent to which corporate operations depend on, and are vulnerable to, communist China….” The item is Proposal No. 7, found on page 79 of Starbucks’s proxy statement. NLPC’s response to the Starbucks board’s opposition to its proposal was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission last week. NLPC also is asking shareholders, in a memo filed with the SEC, to oppose the reelection of longtime (and soon former) CEO Howard Schultz to the company’s board of directors. An excerpt from NLPC’s filing on Schultz says: We believe that Mr. Schultz being removed from all leadership and advisory roles within the company would be the most effective transition. Additionally, given Mr. Schultz’s insistence on exponential growth in risk-laden communist China; his dubious and likely illegal anti-union tactics; and his harmful politicization of the Company, we believe that his complete removal would be beneficial for the development of Mr. Narasimhan and growth of Starbucks. “In the past – even when Howard Schultz had no formal title with Starbucks – he always lurked in the shadows, and seemed to intervene when he saw problems that he arrogantly believed only he could solve,” said Paul Chesser, director of NLPC’s Corporate Integrity Project. “Disney had a similar situation last year with Bob Iger, who just couldn’t let the company go and undermined his successor before he returned, which led to the company’s worst year financially and image-wise in decades. Now Schultz may be doing the same with his aggressive union-busting efforts, which a federal judge has ruled are illegal.” On NLPC’s China proposal, Chesser said, “Mr. Schultz has built Starbucks’s presence in the communist nation beyond 6,000 stores, and has plans for thousands more, at a time of increasing geopolitical risk with U.S.-China relations approaching a critical point in hostilities. Shareholders must be thoroughly informed about the unique risks to the company that China’s aggression presents.” Finally, NLPC has also asked, in a memo filed with the SEC, for fellow Starbucks shareholders to support Proposal No. 9 on the proxy statement, which is sponsored by the Free Enterprise Project. The proposal asks the Company to create a special board committee to review the impacts of policies like its “Third Place Policy,” which opened its stores to anyone for the use of its restrooms and seating areas, regardless of whether they purchased anything. The practice has led to increased crime and unsafe environments around some stores, causing the closure of many of them. Founded in 1991, NLPC promotes ethics in public life and government accountability through research, investigation, education, and legal action. ### For more information or to schedule an interview with Paul Chesser, contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or drene@nlpc.org.

The women’s sexual and reproductive health market has grown at a decent clip in recent years owing to rising awareness about the importance of better sexual health. There are a number of companies now which are involved in this space and one of those is Evofem Biosciences Inc. (OTCMKTS:EVFM). The company is involved in the development and commercialization of innovative products which are meant for addressing the unmet needs in women’s reproductive and sexual health. As it happens, the company already has a product that has been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration. The product in question is Phexxi, which is an on-demand, prescription hormone-free vaginal gel contraceptive. The product is sold in boxes of 12 pre-filled applicators and the customer needs to apply it for up to an hour on either side of the sexual act. On March 9, the company announced that it had appointed a new Interim Chief Financial Officer in the form of Albert Altro. Altro would be the replacement for Jay File, who stepped down from the position in order to explore other opportunities. In this situation, it could well be a good idea for investors to consider taking a closer look at Altro’s credentials as a Chief Financial Officer. He is a highly experienced executive with both operational and financial experience spanning more than a quarter of a century. He has worked in executive management, corporate restructuring, consulting, and public accounting throughout his career and has always been in executive roles. His experience in these domains spans a wide range of organizations, starting from privately held middle-market corporations to debtors in succession and from private equity groups to strategic buyers. Before he established Traverse LLC back in 2005, Altro had been working at consulting giant KPMG both in the strategic consulting practice and also in the auditing group. Additionally, he had also been a Director at PricewaterhouseCoopers in the Transaction Services Group. Altro had also been a corporate restructuring advisor at Zolfo Cooper and brings a wealth of experience to his new position at Evofem Biosciences. Saundra Pelletier, the Chief Executive Officer of the company, noted that everyone at the company hoped that Altro’s extensive experience was going to help in directing the fiscal strategy as it strived to unlock more value for shareholders. "We will look to Albert's extensive experience to inform and direct our fiscal strategy as we explore options to build shareholder value," said Saundra Pelletier, Chief Executive Officer of Evofem. Back on February 27, the company announced that two more patents covering Phexxi and its labeled indication had been listed in the FDA publication titled Approved Drug Products with Therapeutic Equivalence Evaluations, which is colloquially known as the Orange Book. Pelletier noted that the inclusion of the two patents in the Orange Book was a further indication of the fact that the company was further strengthening its patent portfolio. However, she went on to add that the company was intent on further strengthening its patent portfolio both in the United States and overseas. It was a significant new development for Evofem and one that must have been noticed by investors as well as analysts.

HUMBL Inc. (OTCMKTS:HMBL) Launches “HUMBL Chat” Audio Rooms

TopNewsGuide - Market News & Commentary

The Web3 revolution is certainly upon us given the way in which many companies have jumped into the sector and started working on a range of highly innovative products. One of the companies to have emerged as a major player in the Web3 platform space is HUMBL Inc. (OTCMKTS:HMBL). The company offers a wide range of Web3 products, which include HUMBL Authentics, HUMBL Chat, HUMBL Wallet, HUMBL Social, HUMBL Tickets, HUMBL Marketplace, and HUMBL Search Engine. HUMBL also created a commercial blockchain services entity called HUMBL Blockchain Services, which provides services to both private and public sector clients. Investors who may be interested in new-age technology may be interested in HUMBL as a company given the sort of work that it has been accomplishing. The company was in focus last week on March 9 when it made an announcement with regards to the launch of a new feature in its HUMBL Chat platform. The launch in question was that of an audio room integration into the chat platform. It will help HUMBL Social users to create voice chat-based rooms for individuals, as well as groups and a single group, could be as big as 1000 users. The capabilities that have been integrated into HUMBL Chat would include peer-to-peer chat rooms which would provide connections of low latency and clarity. However, that is not all. The company noted that it was also working on tests by way of which users could record the audio rooms and save those into MP3 files. The MP3 files could be highly useful for interviews, podcasts and transcriptions. The Chief Executive Officer of the company Brian Foote spoke about the latest project from HUMBL as well. He noted that the whole idea had initially been inspired by the Twitter Spaces feature, which allows users to chat about a wide range of topics in chat rooms. However, HUMBL decided to offer an audio chat room service that would only allow verified users and hence, it could provide considerable authenticity to listeners. Not too long ago, the company had also been in the news for having launched the world’s first digital wallet which included a search engine, offering of digital assets, and also verified social media profiles. “Twitter Spaces has spawned audio room communities around popular topics such as current events, finance, entertainment, politics, technology, interviews and more,” said Brian Foote, CEO of HUMBL. “We wanted to offer a chat room service here at HUMBL, except with real, verified profiles - which we believe can offer a significant improvement to both the authenticity and monetization of voice chat features on social media.” As it happens, back in February the company's shareholders had gotten another significant boost when the company announced that it had decided against going ahead with its reverse stock split application. The application to FINRA had been for a 1:10 reverse stock split. At the time, the company had announced that it had decided to withdraw its application after having made a reassessment of its strategic plans for an uplisting to a major exchange in the future. However, the possibility of a reverse stock split was not ruled out and HUMBL noted that it may make an application for it later on this year if it became necessary. Foote noted that the reverse stock split was not aligned with the current objectives of HUMBL.
