Analyst Ali Martinez Makes a Bullish Pepe Price Prediction; Shiba Inu and KangaMoon Remain Top Meme Coins To Watch

Kangamoon

Meme coins are always causing hype in the DeFi sphere. This time, analyst Ali Martinez gave Pepe (PEPE) a thumbs up, and things got even more exciting. Meanwhile, Shiba Inu (SHIB) and KangaMoon (KANG) remain the top meme coins to watch. Some analysts hint that KANG (a Stage 6 presale star) may jump by 1,000% in 2024. Let’s discover why. Ali Martinez: The Pepe Price May Hit $0.00000274 Recently, crypto analyst Ali Martinez made some headlines with his Pepe (PEPE) price prediction. According to his tweet, this meme coin may surge to $0.00000274 soon. In terms of the Pepe price movement, it has jumped from $0.0000012 to $0.0000020 in the past week alone. Its market cap grew from $505M to $856M in that period. Meanwhile, there are now 23 technical indicators flashing green for the Pepe coin. Thus, experts remain bullish. They foresee the Pepe price reaching $0.000010 within Q2 of 2024. Shiba Inu (SHIB): SHIB Army Propose a SHIB ETF Meanwhile, there were some exciting Shiba Inu (SHIB) developments. For instance, the SHIB army made a new proposal on Change.org for a Shiba Inu ETF by Grayscale. This petition has already obtained close to 2,000 signatures. This Shiba Inu news may trigger a bullish run for this crypto. The Shiba Inu crypto has surged from $0.0000091 to $0.00001031 over the past 30 days. This meme coin’s market cap increased from $5.37B to $6B during that period. Furthermore, over 25 technical indicators are flashing green. As a result, analysts predict Shiba Inu will reach $0.000016 within Q2 of 2024. KangaMoon (KANG): Brings Innovation to the Meme Coin Space KangaMoon (KANG) is a game changer in the meme coin market. Standing out from its peers that often have no use, KangaMoon integrates Social Fi and play-to-earn (P2E) elements into one. Introducing a P2E game for KangaMoon makes it different, as it will let players use KANG tokens for character upgrades, in-game purchases, and more. This new utility sets KangaMoon as a strong competitor in this sector. You can spectate matches, bet with your KANG holdings, and unlock weekly, monthly, and quarterly challenges. By completing these challenges, you earn extra in-game items and tokens, which can be sold on the KangaMoon marketplace. In Stage 2 of its presale, KANG has already raised nearly $150K, with each meme coin priced at just $0.0075. This marked up a staggering 50% from its starting price. These are amazing numbers that beat expectations by far. However, market analysts predict that once KANG hits exchanges in Q2 2024, it could see a 100x surge. Anyone may start earning KANG tokens before its official launch by buying one meme coin and spreading the word on social media. If interested, sign below for a 10% bonus on each purchase. Can KangaMoon Outpace Pepe and Shiba Inu? KangaMoon has a market cap of just $7.5M. With a lower valuation than competitors like Pepe and Shiba Inu, it will require fewer new funds to increase its price. As it faces off against these peers, KangaMoon’s potential for rapid growth rises significantly. Thus, KANG may be one of the top meme coins to invest in for fast returns.

Nestle Brands Reinforce Commitment to Esports Through New Sponsorship Deals

MarketJar

Maggi, one of Nestle’s billion-dollar brands, and its oriental noodles brand Fusian continue their support for the esports industry by extending their sponsorship with GiantX. 1 This partnership, now entering its fourth year, solidifies Maggi Fusian as the official partner of one of Europe's most popular and successful esports teams, GiantX. GiantX, formed from Giants Gaming and Excel Esports' merger in December 2023, is a major player in esports, excelling in various video game titles. It's a key founder of two major leagues - League of Legends EMEA Championship (LEC) and Valorant Champions Tour EMEA (VCT) by Riot Games. With headquarters in London, Malaga, and Berlin, GiantX has amassed over 23 million fans in Europe. Maggi Fusian's involvement in esports began in 2021 and has since become a recognized brand in the sector alongside GiantX. This partnership highlights Maggi Fusian's commitment to the esports community and its support for GiantX in their competitive endeavors. GiantX also signed a partnership agreement with KitKat, another Nestle company. In January, the partnership was renewed for an additional year. 2 As per the renewed partnership agreement, KitKat's logo will appear on the sleeve of player jerseys during both international and domestic competitions. Additionally, KitKat's branding will be showcased on GiantX's social media and streaming channels, including YouTube and Twitch, as well as other platforms where the team shares content. The collaboration will also involve the creation of original content. Another major player in the esports market is OverActive Media (TSXV:OAM) (OTC:OAMCF), an esports and entertainment company catering to today’s generation of fans. Over the last few months, OverActive Media has solidified its position as a major player in the esports world by acquiring two widely popular esports franchises, gaining new major sponsors and increasing both its audience engagement and viewership statistics across the leading streaming and social media platforms. Partnerships With Brands Drive Esports Growth Since adding KOI and Movistar Riders to its portfolio, OverActive Media has seen a significant uptick in viewership thanks to the popularity of the teams which have over 100 million dedicated followers and the social media cred of its co-founders Ibai Llanos, a world-leading Twitch streamer and former FC Barcelona football legend Gerard Piqué. OverActive Media has seen its viewer numbers soar in games like League of Legends, VALORANT, Counter Strike 2, and Call of Duty. The Mad Lions KOI team's performance, drawing a record 741,000 viewers in one match and 4.7 million Twitch views thanks to Ibai, has outshined even top TV show finales. In January, MAD Lions KOI and Movistars led the esports category in viewership and total engagements across major social media platforms in Europe and North America. It was also a top five brand globally during the same period. Their success continued with a historic 830,816 viewers for a single match, surpassing average NHL game viewerships. “Our ability to captivate a massive, global audience is pivotal to our success. The immediate surge in engagement and viewership after announcing the acquisitions highlights the strategic value of our operations and solidifies our leadership in the esports industry," said OverActive Media CEO Adam Adamou. "Merging our existing business with these acquisitions opens new vistas for viewer engagement. The enthusiastic response from our fans and partners reaffirms our direction and commitment.” The company has also bolstered its portfolio of noteworthy partnerships. On February 28, OverActive Media (TSXV:OAM) (OTC:OAMCF) announced a multi million dollar sponsorship with Telefónica, one of the largest telephone operators and mobile network providers in the world. Telefónica, which is a long-time partner of Movistar Riders, renewed its sponsorship for three years to the end of 2026. The expanded partnership includes select naming rights, brand visibility on team gear and products, and collaborative content development and marketing. In 2022, Telefónica took a minority stake in Movistar Riders. With the completion of these acquisitions, Telefónica will transition to becoming a shareholder in OverActive Media. Telefónica is the latest addition to OverActive Media ’s roster of partnerships which includes respected brands including Bell, who is also a shareholder of the company, as well as Kappa, Red Bull, TD, Razer, SCUF and AMD.

CSD Social Venture Fund and Gallaudet University Present "Holographic Horizons: Bridging the Educational Divide" at SXSW

Communication Service for the Deaf

CSD Social Venture Fund and Gallaudet University have partnered with Proto Inc., to utilize Proto’s “Epic” holoportation technology as a groundbreaking tool in delivering lifelike, interactive American Sign Language (ASL) education for students who are Deaf and hard of hearing. "Deaf education is on the brink of a transformative leap, where geographical, socioeconomic, and communication disparities will no longer be barriers to quality learning," said Rosa Lee Timm, Division President of CSD Social Venture Fund. “Epic allows students to see and interact with remote instructors as if they are present in the same space, making it an inclusive environment that celebrates and nurtures diversity.” The demo and event, “Holographic Horizons: Bridging the Educational Divide” is set to debut at the Southwest (SXSW) festival on March 4th, 2024, led by panelists Rosavetta Jackson, CSD Social Venture Fund Program Manager; Topher Myers, an educational technology expert; and Dr. Laurene E. Simms, a leading voice for inclusive learning. The panelists will discuss how the Epic holoportation device from Proto Inc can serve as a medium for improving educational accessibility, including how it allows for greater clarity of information exchanged in ASL due to its usage of 3D space over more traditional 2D spaces found in video conferencing platforms. Epic’s lack of physical proximity will be highlighted to show how it opens doors to unimaginable use within the realm of universal design in classroom environments, creating far more learning opportunities and accessibility for students affected by inequity and geopolitics. For more information and to register for the event, please visit: https://sxswedu.com About CSD Social Venture Fund Founded in 2017, the CSD Social Venture Fund aims to support Deaf entrepreneurs in creating jobs, breaking down barriers, and serving as positive representations within the Deaf community.

Photography and Videography Jobs Soar in 2023, Finds Freelancer.com

FREELANCER.COM

Freelancer.com (ASX: FLN), the world’s largest freelancing and crowdsourcing marketplace by number of users and jobs posted, today published the fastest growing online jobs for 2023 based on data from more than 1 million projects posted to the platform. The data reveals that jobs related to video content creation are in high demand. Videography ranked as the second fastest growing skill of 2023, with Video Production and Video Editing jobs also growing significantly and placing in the top growing jobs. Other video-related jobs, such as YouTube Video Editing and TikTok, were also amongst the top 25 fastest growing jobs on Freelancer.com for 2023. Fueling this demand is an increase of brands incorporating video in their marketing strategies. According to Wyzowl, video content marketing is an essential part of a majority (88%) of marketers strategies with most (85%) planning to increase spending on video in 2024. Demand for skills in photography and photo editing was also a driver for new jobs. Adobe Lightroom projects saw the highest percentage growth across the year, while Photography as a skill grew by 3,625 total jobs. In terms of earning potential, freelancers in the United States are charging up to $300/hour for Photography skills, $200/hour for Videography and Video Editing, and $160/hour to create TikTok content. “Advances in generative AI are changing the way businesses are communicating and marketing themselves. A boom in video and photography services is a clear indication that there’s a shift towards visual, highly-produced content as opposed to reliance on legacy forms of internet marketing, such as a reliance on blog posts and articles to generate traffic. We expect this trend to continue and are already seeing signs of video and marketing categories continuing to increase in 2024,” said Matt Barrie, Chief Executive at Freelancer.com. One example of how businesses are shifting towards video and moving away from written content is evident when looking at the decreasing skills of 2023. Blog writing ranked as 13th in the top falling jobs on Freelancer.com, decreasing by 66% from 4,872 to 1,648 jobs posted in 2023. While some may speculate that the introduction of generative AI tools is impacting writing, blog writing was the only writing skill present in the falling jobs. In fact, other forms of writing such as Fiction Writing (up 36.1%), Creative Writing (up 18.8%) and Microsoft Word (up 16.8%) were both amongst the fastest growing jobs of the year. “AI can’t replace creativity, yet. Although this may emerge with model scale. We said this in the middle of the year when we saw creative writing jobs increase in Q2 2023 and the sentiment remains the same in 2024. What we are seeing is that our freelancers are moving up the stack. They’re evolving from just blog writers to editors. Moving from just illustrators to directors. Ultimately, AI is elevating our talent and improving efficiency and productivity in the process,” added Barrie. Top Freelance Jobs The most popular job in 2023 was graphic design, with more than a quarter million projects requiring the skill. Graphic design has always historically been the number one job type on Freelancer.com for over a decade.

Fastest Growing North American-Based Sports Media Company, Basketball Forever, Signs First North American Gaming Partnership with Dabble

Basketball Forever

Basketball Forever, one of the fastest growing and most engaged independent sports content brands in the world, announced its first North American gaming partnership with fantasy operator Dabble to offer free-to-play games to North American audiences. Though more than 50% of its website traffic and user base comes from the United States, this will mark Basketball Forever’s debut into the North American market. Since launching in the U.S. at the start of 2024, Dabble has garnered over 500,000 unique downloads and amassed more than 10,000 players, proving to be one of the most appealing fantasy operators in the industry. The partnership kicked off during NBA All-Star weekend when Dabble offered Basketball Forever’s Hot Hands game during the 2024 All-Star Game. The opening day saw nearly 10,000 players participating, culminating in more than 70,000 total sessions over All-Star weekend. “Our launch with Dabble during All-Star weekend proved that we are definitely in the right place at the right time by expanding our business operation into North America,” said Alex Sumsky, CEO and co-founder of Basketball Forever. “Our success with Dabble will be an incredible case study of what we can offer to North American fantasy and real money operators—something we have a proven track record of in Australia. For instance, through our content portfolio in Australia, we were able to drive A$15 million of LTV to TAB whilst only spending A$500,000 on player acquisition. With a highly engaged audience and an extremely low cost per acquisition, we can offer American operators the same type of impact, as well as the eventual launch of our own owned and operated products and game suites” Basketball Forever will offer Hot Hands again on March 26 during a matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and Milwaukee Bucks. To play the game, users are given randomly generated, personalized bingo cards filled with player prediction tiles. Tracking the progress of selected player performances in real-time, users chase winning combinations, creating an immersive and interactive experience that blends the thrill of live sports with the anticipation of winning. All a user needs to do is complete a line to win a prize and fill the board to claim the jackpot. Two additional games, V.O.A.T. and Streaker, are currently in development and will go live before the end of the 2024 NBA season. In V.O.A.T., players will answer a series of live questions across various in-game events, testing knowledge and strategic decision making. Incorrect guesses eliminate users until one is left standing. The winner scoops the prize offered for that game. In Streaker, users will participate in a pick-em style game built around digital trading cards with trading mechanics. Both games will be offered as free-to-play versions for now, with real-money versions offered in the immediate future. In open beta, the V.O.A.T. product boasted a 91% organic retention rate with the 30,000 strong user base averaging 35 unique sessions per week on the game. “With our V.O.A.T. game, we were able to acquire our entire beta population and watch it grow four times over without spending a dollar on marketing or user acquisition tactics,” said Basketball Forever Chief Strategy Officer Nick Kelland. “ Because we own and operate our games, the majority of Basketball Forever’s content can have V.O.A.T.-related calls to action integrated, which is a pure opportunity for free daily user acquisition. We are expecting V.O.A.T. to grow to 300,000 users by the end of 2024 with a CPA of essentially $0.00. This is a massive opportunity for brands and sponsors in the North American market to reach a large and motivated audience for an extremely low cost.” Founded in 2015, Basketball Forever is a digital media platform creating news and content on the global basketball market. For more than a decade, the company has built its brand organically from Australia, amassing a monthly global audience of more than 110 million unique visitors. Previously, all of its partners, sponsors and development efforts focused on the Australian market, even though the platform reaches 45 million unique visitors per month from the United States alone. With its first major push into the North American market, Basketball Forever will be making several strategic business announcements in the upcoming months. ABOUT BASKETBALL FOREVER Basketball Forever was founded in 2015 with a mission to celebrate the game and embrace its ability to unite people from all over the world. The brand reaches millions globally as the best source of breaking news, commentary, rumors, and culture through a uniquely social-first approach, bringing the best content to the consumer and removing the barriers between the creative and the consumer. The company is currently the top ranked global sports company amongst millennials by engagement, garnering 3.9 billion impressions yearly, with a monthly global reach of 105 million unique visitors.

Willy Woo Bitcoin (BTC) Price Forecast, Rising Interest in Ethereum (ETH) ETFs - KangaMoon (KANG) Price Surges

Kangamoon

Renowned analyst Willy Woo predicts a significant shift in Bitcoin's price dynamics, suggesting that the pioneer cryptocurrency may not dip below $30,000 again if a particular on-chain pattern persists. Meanwhile, Ethereum (ETH) ETFs have emerged as a focal point of interest following the recent approval of Bitcoin spot ETFs by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). More interestingly, KangaMoon (KANG) has made waves in the meme coin market with its innovative approach and emphasis on utility and innovation. Serving as the in-game currency for an upcoming play-to-earn (P2E) game, KangaMoon offers players a unique gaming experience coupled with social-fi elements. Willy Woo: Bitcoin (BTC) Won’t Drop Below $30,000 Again According to Willy Woo, if a specific on-chain pattern remains consistent, it's unlikely that Bitcoin (BTC) will drop below $30,000 again. Bitcoin’s chart illustrates dense horizontal bands representing price regions where a significant portion of the supply changed hands among investors, indicating strong agreed-upon values. Woo highlights three key factors associated with this Bitcoin pattern: strong bands of agreed-upon price, transitioning out of a bear market, and approaching the next halving event, marked by vertical bands on the chart. In instances where these conditions align, Bitcoin's price tends to avoid revisiting these established support levels, leading to an "up only” trend. Rising Interest in Ethereum ETFs: SEC Decision Awaited This year, there have been significant developments in the crypto market, indicating a growing interest among companies in establishing a spot Ethereum ETF. Following the Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) approval of Bitcoin spot ETFs, analysts are now looking towards Ethereum (ETH). Bloomberg analyst James Seyffart has suggested that a decision on Ethereum ETFs will be made on May 23. Major firms such as BlackRock, VanEck, Hashdex, and Grayscale are actively seeking approval from the SEC. Recently, Franklin Templeton also joined the race for an Ethereum ETF approval, reflecting increasing investor interest in the second-ranked asset. KangaMoon (KANG): Redefining MemeCoins KangaMoon (KANG) is causing a stir in the meme coin market with its unique approach. Unlike traditional memecoins, KangaMoon aims to stand out by emphasizing utility and innovation. Instead of being just meme coin, KangaMoon serves as the in-game currency for an upcoming KangaMoon play-to-earn (P2E) game. In this game, players can engage in battles, spectate matches, and even bet on outcomes, creating an exciting mix of gaming and social-fi elements. Moreover, KangaMoon holders enjoy exclusive benefits such as access to weekly, monthly, and quarterly challenges, which offer extra tokens and in-game items. These items can then be traded on the KangaMoon marketplace, adding another layer of utility to the token. Currently, KangaMoon is in Stage 2 of its presale, with a price of $0.0075 per token. However, anticipation is high for another significant surge in value once a Tier-1 centralized exchange lists KangaMoon in the second quarter of 2024. With experts predicting a potential 1,000% surge in value post-listing, there's no better time to get involved with KangaMoon.

Kangamoon

Ripple (XRP) CEO Brad Garlinghouse recently supported a possible XRP ETF from BlackRock. Meanwhile, KangaMoon (KANG) looks to shake up the meme coin market. Analysts have pegged this Stage 2 presale star as the next 100x meme coin in 2024. Simultaneously, Hedera (HBAR) continues its climb. Ripple CEO Backs BlackRock XRP ETF The CEO of Ripple (XRP), Brad Garlinghouse, is hyped on the idea of BlackRock bringing in an XRP ETF. During an interview with Bloomberg, he admitted it would be a no-brainer for the community. He also stated that if Bitcoin's spot ETF got approved by regulators, then why can't Ripple? This Ripple news may trigger a bullish rally for this crypto. The Ripple coin has surged from $0.53 to $0.54 in the past week alone. Its market cap jumped from $28B to $29B during that time. Additionally, Ripple is now trading above its 100 and 200-day EMAs. Therefore, market analysts predict this altcoin will hit $0.80 within Q2 of 2024. KangaMoon (KANG): A Future Member of the Meme Coin Titans With features that make it stand out, KangaMoon (KANG) is an emerging force in the meme coin space. Not only is it an in-game currency and a governance token, but it's built for utility, too. This project's Play-to-Earn (P2E) and Social-Fi elements are innovative and scream "first place."

These challenges are done weekly, monthly, and quarterly with extra tokens and in-game items as rewards. During its Stage 2 presale, each KANG costs only $0.0075. That's a 50% increase from its initial price. However, experts predict further growth as a Tier-1 CEX listing in Q2 of 2024 may pump this meme coin up. Some are even hinting at a 1,000% surge. In other words, KANG could replicate the success of other top meme coins such as Shiba Inu and Dogecoin. You need to become a KANG owner and spread the word on social media to earn KANG tokens. A 15% bonus for each purchase is in effect - so take advantage of this unique opportunity. Hedera (HBAR): Hits Peak TVL Meanwhile, Hedera (HBAR) has also been making headlines. Notably, crypto analyst House of Chimera revealed that Hedera has now hit a peak in TVL and a surge in trading volume. Over the past week alone, the Hedera price has jumped from $0.082 to $0.10. Its market cap also grew from $2.77B to $3.50B in that period. This altcoin has a positive sentiment because 28 technical indicators are green. Because of this, experts have made a bullish Hedera price prediction. They forecast a growth to $0.15 for HBAR within Q2 of 2024. What Gives KangaMoon an Advantage Over Ripple and Hedera? With a market cap of just $7.5M, KangaMoon is more agile than competitors like Ripple and Hedera. It would take less money to keep it growing quickly, allowing it to move faster.

Grayscale's New ETF To Track Zcash, THORChain Price Dips, KangaMoon Soars

Kangamoon

Grayscale wants to introduce a new ETF to track privacy-based coins like Zcash. In other news, THORChain price has dropped, forcing investors to buy KangaMoon. KangaMoon has shown bullish momentum in the past week, skyrocketing 50%, making it the best coin to invest in. Grayscale Working on New ETF To Track Privacy-based Coins Like Zcash (ZEC) Grayscale Investments has told the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) its plan to launch a novel ETF, the Grayscale Privacy ETF (PRVC), focusing on the data privacy sector. This ETF will dedicate over 80% of its assets to companies specializing in data privacy solutions and blockchain-based privacy technologies, including protocols such as Zcash (ZEC). While PRVC will not hold cryptocurrencies directly, it will mirror the Indxx Data Privacy Index. Additionally, Grayscale plans to invest about 10% of its assets in privacy-centric protocols through ZCSH, Grayscale's Zcash Trust. Meanwhile, Zcash is one of the altcoins that has been banned by most centralized exchanges. Yet, the token has managed to maintain a bullish price movement in the past week. Its price has increased 20.7% to a peak of $29.26 from a 7-day low of $22.29. THORChain (RUNE) Price Drops 15.6% THORChain (RUNE), the native token of a decentralized exchange (DEX) that supports cross-chain swaps, has dropped into the red region. A look at its price chart shows that bears are leading the market on the weekly timeframe. They have pushed the price of THORChain down 15.6% from a peak of $5.88 to a low of $4.97. Nevertheless, THORChain RUNE joins other altcoins that are bullish on the monthly and yearly timeframes, with an increase of 23.1% and 191.7%, respectively. Therefore, the token still has a chance to clear the losses on the weekly chart. THORChain's technical indicators show that it is trading above the 50-day SMA ($4.60) and 200-day SMA ($3.47). As a result, analysts predict that THORChain will rise by 32.03% and reach $6.60 soon. KangaMoon (KANG) Stage 2 Selling Fast The crypto community's growing interest in meme coins with real utility has pushed investors towards KangaMoon (KANG). KangaMoon, a project still in its blockchain ICO, seeks to redefine meme coins by adding utility to them. It is building a community-centric space that merges Social-Fi elements with competitive gaming to reward participation and in-game achievements. KANG token holders stand to benefit significantly, with numerous opportunities to earn additional tokens through contests and competitions. These tokens not only serve as the platform's primary currency but also play a crucial role in its ecosystem, facilitating various transactions and activities. The blockchain ICO's stage 2 has already seen high interest, raising about $67,250, and its selling out rapidly where each token is priced at $0.0075. With the play-to-earn gaming market's value at $885M in 2023 and expected to grow, KangaMoon is poised for huge growth. Also, analysts are anticipating further price increases, making this the best time to get involved before it moves to the next stage. Conclusion While THORChain is grappling with bearish pressure in the market, KangaMoon has reached a new peak of $0.0075. Still, analysts see KangaMoon rising to higher heights in the coming weeks, making it the best coin to invest in right now. Discover the Exciting Opportunities of the KangaMoon (KANG) Presale Today!
