Blockchain Digest

In the constantly changing world of cryptocurrency, periods of stability are really sought after, especially for Bitcoin (BTC).

At the same time, Rebel Satoshi Arcade (RECQ), a crypto project led by its community, is making great progress in its presale stage, catching the eye of both investors and fans. Massive ETF Inflows Boost Bitcoin Stability Bitcoin's recent stability can be credited to the huge influx of investments into spot BTC ETFs, signaling growing confidence among investors. According to Bitfinex researchers, Bitcoin has found solid support around the $60,000 level, thanks to consistently strong daily closures and significant withdrawals from crypto exchanges. Even with the massive outflows totaling $3.85 billion on May 15, Bitcoin's volatility remained low, and the cryptocurrency held its ground. What's particularly interesting is the spot Bitcoin ETF market in the US, which has seen net inflows for seven days in a row.

If you hold this token, you are literally a decision maker in this project, while the other token serves a transactional purpose. The current presale has exceeded everyone's expectations with its remarkable success. Rebel Satoshi's innovative strategies and commitment to its community have generated immense interest and excitement. With ambitious goals outlined in its roadmap, such as reaching a $100 million market cap, Rebel Satoshi is poised for something substantial. And it's not mere speculation – comprehensive audits demonstrate the project's dedication to security and transparency, instilling confidence in potential investors. Rebel Satoshi isn't just about snagging investors; it's about making moves.

Expert Predictions: 4 Cryptos Primed for Significant Upside

Blockchain Digest

ONDO, Rebel Satoshi ($RECQ ), Ethena (ENA), and Optimism (OP) are gaining traction as the four most lucrative crypto investments in the current market space. Let’s take a more detailed look at the facts and analyze how high these tokens could reach over the next crypto bull run! Experts Rank ONDO Among the Best Altcoins to Buy Now Analysts point out that the opening of the ONDO-PERP market on the Coinbase International Exchange enabled ONDO to reach a new record high of $1.32 on May 26. Furthermore, ONDO bulls are convinced that the token will manage to sustain its positive momentum and increase toward the $1.50 threshold in the following months. Experts single out ONDO’s significant surges in terms of its Total Value Locked (TVL) as another reason for this optimistic ONDO price prediction. Thus, ONDO is gaining traction as one of the best altcoins to buy before the next crypto bull run. On the other hand, some analysts expect pronounced drops in ONDO’s imminent market performance based on the token’s inability to provide valuable short-term returns. According to ONDO bears, holders can expect corrections toward the $0.80 mark by the end of the year. Traders Recognize $RECQ as a Formidable Force in the Crypto Meme Market Rebel Satoshi is a new meme coin project aiming to reshape the crypto landscape through its dedication to the decentralized revolution. On top of that, Rebel Satoshi users receive excellent rewards by contributing to the development of the platform’s vibrant two-token ecosystem. $RBLZ offers excellent real-world utility as Rebel Satoshi’s governance and membership token. Furthermore, the token raised over $2.5 million during the presale phase and is currently selling for $0.025 on the Uniswap DEX. Moreover, $RBLZ holders expect continued rallies in the forthcoming weeks, as the token’s current price marks a noteworthy 150% increase from the starting $0.010. Meanwhile, Rebel Satoshi’s second token, $RECQ, is at Stage 2 of the presale, available for only $0.0044. Thus, Stage 2 investors can expect 25% gains as early as the next presale stage and a remarkable 184% gain when $RECQ reaches its launch price of $0.0125. $RECQ serves as Rebel Satoshi ’s base currency for everyday transactions such as purchases, rewards, and fees. Furthermore, the powerful $RECQ token also provides access to Rebel Satoshi’s advanced buyback program and the numerous play-to-earn games in the fun-filled Rebel Satoshi Arcade. Make sure to chip in today, as $RECQ is set to continue its upward trend over the next crypto bull run! Ethena Emerges as One of the Top Altcoins to Buy in 2024 Ethena bulls suggest ENA as one of the top altcoins to buy now based on its excellent performance since its launch on April 2, 2024. While ENA recorded its all-time high of $1.51 on April 11, experts believe that Ethena could surpass the $1.70 price mark during the next crypto bull run. ENA traded at around $0.90 during the second half of May, meaning Ethena could increase by a remarkable 88.88%. Moreover, analysts point to Ethena’s various strategic partnerships as another important factor behind this bullish ENA price forecast. For example, Infinex announced its integration with Ethena Labs via an X post on May 28. However, Ethena bears warn that ENA’s failure to consolidate above the $1 threshold could announce the beginning of a lengthy downward trend. In the worst-case scenario, ENA could decrease by the year's close toward the $0.50 mark. Optimism Crypto Price Prediction: Could OP Surge To $3.60? Optimism enthusiasts believe that the next crypto bull run could help the OP token approach the $3.60 price level. OP traded around the $2.50 range during the final week of May, meaning OP investors could receive more than 44% gains. This bullish OP crypto price prediction is based on several factors, such as Optimism’s reputation as one of the leading L-2 scaling solutions. On the other hand, some experts have evaluated OP as a risky investment for the following term, as several Optimism whales have started to dump their OP holdings. Thus, Optimism bears claim that holders should expect corrections below the $2.20 range amid Optimism’s imminent price movements. Top market experts single out ONDO, ENA, OP, and $RECQ as the most rewarding options for the next crypto bull run, so don’t hesitate to join Rebel Satoshi’s mighty army of Recusants!

Comcast Partners with Jaime Mendez News to Serve Hispanic Community in Seattle

Comcast Pacific Northwest

Comcast today announced a partnership with Se Habla Media to support and expand its Jaime Mendez News Spanish-language newscast to the more than 60,000 members of the Hispanic community in Seattle. The partnership includes a grant to support operations and technology along with a regular spot on Comcast’s Xfinity TV Channel 79 to air its broadcasts. “When Sinclair Broadcasting group let go of its Univison affiliate at the end of 2023, the only local Spanish newscast on TV in our area also disappeared,” said Diana Oliveros, co-founder of Se Habla Media. “This sudden lack of a newscast posed yet another barrier to important information for many Hispanics. So, we decided to create our own local media outlet.” Se Habla Media was born out of Oliveros’ and Jaime Mendez’s desire to fill the void left by the disappearance of Univision. The two decided that creating their own media outlet was the best and likely only solution to avoid the disappearance of local Spanish-language news. They also realized that they didn’t have time to waste. In roughly three months they created Se Habla Media and launched on Jan. 1, 2024. It was a labor of love in more ways than one—Oliveros and Mendez are married and live in the home that has also become their studio. "Our collaboration with Jaime and Diana aligns seamlessly with Comcast's mission to support our communities, advance digital equity, and help small businesses succeed," said Rodrigo Lopez, Senior Vice President of Comcast Pacific Northwest Region. "By supporting Se Habla Media, a news outlet created by Latinos for Latinos, we are helping to keep our Spanish-language community informed about local events and raise awareness of important local issues." Before the partnership with Comcast, Jaime Mendez News, the newscast produced by Se Habla Media, was limited to online broadcasts. Even without a lot of marketing or a TV cable channel, it was able to build a critical mass of more than 120,000 followers. Additionally, the outlet has reached more than a million viewers across Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. Most of the Se Habla Media’s online audience lives in the Puget Sound area, but it also has followers in Central and Eastern Washington, California and Mexico. The addition of a TV cable channel and the support of Comcast will help expand its reach and audience. “There is a huge technological gap for some members of the Hispanic community,” said Oliveros. “It is often taken for granted that anyone has access to internet connection and social media, but the truth is that TV is still an important, and sometimes the only source of information for some people. These are the people that tend to be some of the most vulnerable.” Mendez was the news anchor for the now closed Seattle Univision broadcast. He has been a pioneer in Hispanic media for the last 25 years. Oliveros is a career diplomat specializing in community outreach and local economic development. During her six years in Seattle, she acted as Consul for Community Outreach at the Consulate of Mexico in Seattle, leading the efforts of collaborating with the Mexican migrant community in Washington and Alaska, to provide health, education and financial literacy programs. Her position created a deeper and better understanding of the needs and culture of the local and regional Spanish speaking community. The financial support from Comcast will also aid in paying for freelance reporters to develop news stories. In the future, Mendez wants to provide more daily news and add a sports show with specialized segments. “We feel glad to see that other stakeholders, like Comcast, see the value of what we are doing and commit to strengthen projects like ours,” said Mendez. “The partnership with Comcast helps us bring reliable information to more people and gives us the exposure we need to raise awareness about the need in the Hispanic community.” Comcast Corporation (Nasdaq: CMCSA) is a global media and technology company. From the connectivity and platforms we provide, to the content and experiences we create, our businesses reach hundreds of millions of customers, viewers, and guests worldwide. We deliver world-class broadband, wireless, and video through Xfinity, Comcast Business, and Sky; produce, distribute, and stream leading entertainment, sports, and news through brands including NBC, Telemundo, Universal, Peacock, and Sky; and bring incredible theme parks and attractions to life through Universal Destinations & Experiences.

UFC and Aires Tech Inc. Join Forces to Reach a Global Audience of 700 Million Fans


In a world increasingly reliant on technology, concerns about electromagnetic radiation (EMR) have led to a surge in demand for innovative solutions. American Aires Inc. (CSE: WIFI) (OTCQB: AAIRF) has been making significant strides in the tech industry with its cutting-edge approach to electromagnetic radiation (EMF) protection. The US market for EMF protection is estimated to be worth $5 billion, representing only a small portion of the even larger global opportunity. With the announcement of a multi-year global marketing partnership with UFC last week, now could be the time to take a look at AAIRF. The UFC Collaboration: AAIRF's visibility will increase significantly as a result of the partnership with UFC, the top mixed martial arts organization and a division of TKO Group Holdings (NYSE:TKO), which Endeavor Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: EDR) owns a majority stake in. With UFC’s reach extending to over 700 million fans in 170 countries and approximately 975 million households, this collaboration is poised to place Aires Tech in front of a massive global audience. The integration of Aires branding within UFC’s major events, including pay-per-view broadcasts and other media, will provide unparalleled reach. Grant Norris-Jones, Head of Global Partnerships at TKO, highlighted the synergy between the two brands: “Aires aligns well with our brand in several respects, including their focus on innovation and being a first mover in their industry.” Josh Bruni, CEO of Aires, emphasized the benefits of the partnership: “This collaboration not only amplifies our global reach but also connects us with UFC's dedicated audience, who value peak performance and personal well-being.” The partnership was activated at UFC 302: Makhachev vs. Poirier on June 1, 2024, marking a significant milestone in Aires' journey to become a global leader in EMF protection technology. The company hopes that this collaboration is expected to drive brand awareness and sales growth, solidifying Aires’ position as a leader in the market. Innovative Technology: The exclusive silicon-based resonator technology from Aires is intended to block dangerous electromagnetic radiation (EMR) released by consumer electronics. This innovation is embodied in their Lifetune products, which target EMR from cellphones, computers, baby monitors, Wi-Fi, and high-speed 5G networks. With over 20 years and $20 million invested in research and development, Aires has positioned itself as a pioneer in the field of EMR protection. The company's products appeal to a wide range of customers, including biohackers, athletes, individuals concerned with fertility, and those seeking better sleep. Aires operates a direct-to-consumer sales model with fulfillment centers in the USA, Canada, Australia, and the EU, and has recently established a new center in the UK to support its global expansion efforts. Financial Strength and Growth Trajectory: American Aires Inc. has demonstrated robust financial performance, with gross margins averaging around 60%. This is comparable to top technology companies like Nvidia and Apple, which boast gross margins of 75% and 45%, respectively. The company achieved positive EBITDA (adjusted) in its most recent quarter, underscoring its strong financial health. In fiscal year 2023, Aires reported a record annual order volume of $10.4 million, a 79% increase year-over-year. The company's direct-to-consumer business now ships products to over 60 countries, with significant growth observed in Australia and the EU. In Q1 2024, Aires reported a 37% year-over-year increase in sales, despite typical Q1 consumer spending weaknesses. The company's cash balance also saw a substantial improvement, increasing from $0.03 million in Q4 2023 to $2.3 million in Q1 2024, bolstered by successful financings in February and May 2024. CEO Josh Bruni stated, “Now that Q1 and our heavy lifting on the IR front are behind us, we're refocusing our efforts on deploying the capital we raised across three major fronts: forging prominent new marketing partnerships, building universal brand awareness, and expanding internationally. In other words, continuing to do what's enabled our multi-year trajectory of significant revenue growth so we can make 2024 our best year ever.” Disclaimers: RazorPitch Inc.

The Meme Stock Revival Saw GameStop (NYSE: GME) Shares Surge Above 120%: VantagePoint’s A.I.-Driven Forecasting Software Saw It Coming A Week Earlier


By James Blacker, Benzinga Meme stocks have once again rocked the financial markets, with GameStop Corp (NYSE: GME) and AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc (NYSE: AMC) seeing dramatic spikes in recent weeks. Shares of GameStop soared 74% on May 13 after social media influencer and investor Keith Gill, who was instrumental in the 2021 meme stock frenzy, made his first social media post in three years. Similarly, other meme stocks saw massive surges, such as AMC, which rose nearly 80%, and Koss Corporation (NASDAQ: KOSS), which more than doubled. While the share prices of GameStop and AMC seem to have now settled down, the resurgence of meme stocks has reignited the discussion about their volatility and unpredictability. While making money with meme socks is possible, it is considered by many to be risky and relies heavily on timing the market. GameStop shares opened at $26.34 on May 13. At the time of writing, however, the stock is trading at $22.12, which means that traders who entered long positions after Gill’s social media posts on May 11 and 12 would be in the red. A month ago, the stock was trading at around $10, which means those who got in early would be up some 120%. Staying Ahead Of The Curve While humans can be notoriously bad at timing the market, advanced predictive tools are invaluable for traders and investors looking to capitalize on events like the meme stock resurgence. Amid such a landscape, the right tools are essential, and VantagePoint’s A.I.-driven market forecasting software has proven its ability to predict the momentum and trends of stocks like GameStop and AMC before they take off, with up to 87.4% historical accuracy. Combined with its dual-patented intermarket analysis, which compiles and analyzes data about the interconnectedness of global markets, VantagePoint reports that its AI software saw the GameStop confirmed trend reversal as early as May 3rd, long before the broader market reacted to it. VantagePoint claims that its software gives traders precise forecasts of a trend’s direction from one to three days in advance, in addition to predictions of the next day’s high and low. It makes forecasts for over 2,300 stocks, ETFs, futures, forex pairs, commodities and cryptocurrencies every single day. The company has been using A.I. to forecast the markets for over three decades, which means three decades that its neural networks have been learning and getting more and more accurate. In line with the company’s vision to empower investors daily, VantagePoint was the first trading software developer in the world to introduce strategy back-testing capabilities in trading software for personal computers. In February 2020, long before the A.I. explosion, the company announced that its predictive accuracy had increased to 87.4%. Since introducing its first trading software in 1983, VantagePoint has grown into a multi-million dollar, Inc. 500, trading software company with over 40,000 customers in more than 160 countries. The company has also won multiple awards, including “Best Predictive A.I. Software For Trading” by A.I. World Finance in 2023. The company also partnered with Benzinga in 2022 for a four-part series to help traders. With the resurgence of social media-driven volatility, VantagePoint’s early insights could give traders and investors the edge they need to stay ahead of the curve.

Comcast Expands into Chanhassen with Major Fiber Network

Comcast Twin Cities

Comcast announced today it will continue to significantly expand its next-generation Xfinity network into Chanhassen, Minnesota. The media and technology company will invest millions to install new fiber-rich highways that will provide multi-gig speeds and unmatched reliability to more than 10,500 homes and businesses with a planned completion by the end of 2025. The Chanhassen expansion adds to Comcast’s more than $525 million technology and infrastructure investments across Minnesota over the last three years. Comcast’s planned expansion follows February’s announcement of expanding its smart, fast, reliable fiber-rich network to seven cities in Minnesota, including Cologne and Nowthen, and parts of Corcoran, Grant, Hugo, Rogers and Stillwater Township by the end of 2024. In June 2023, Comcast completed an expansion to more than 2,300 homes and businesses in the City of Wayzata, where area businesses now enjoy Comcast Business’s suite of products, including broadband speeds of up to 100 Gbps, and Xfinity products for residents with Internet speeds faster than a gig over standard connections in the home. “We are pleased to welcome Comcast to our community. Access to high-quality cable and internet services is essential for our residents and businesses, and having more options ensures that everyone can find a plan that best meets their needs. We look forward to the benefits that increased competition and improved infrastructure will bring," said Chanhassen Mayor Elise Ryan. Residential customers will be able to take advantage of Xfinity’s full suite of products, including Internet, video, mobile, voice and managed home solutions. For local businesses, Comcast Business will offer a suite of connectivity, communications, networking, cybersecurity, wireless, and managed solutions to help organizations of different sizes prepare for what’s next. Comcast Business has been consistently recognized by industry analysts and associations as a leader and innovator, and one of the fastest-growing providers of Ethernet services. “Reliable high-speed Internet is essential in today’s digital economy, which is why Comcast continues its commitment to connect more Twin Cities families and businesses to the moments that matter most,” said Kalyn Hove, Comcast Midwest Regional Senior Vice President. “We are expanding our fiber highways in Chanhassen, strategically investing in areas undergoing significant growth. By establishing the best broadband infrastructure today, we are securing the economic prosperity of these communities for tomorrow.” Comcast’s commitment to new communities goes beyond the build—addressing digital opportunities in communities through Project UP, the company’s $1 billion commitment to help tens of millions of people connect to the Internet and build futures of unlimited possibilities. Over the past three years, Comcast has invested more than $5 million in cash and in kind donations in the Twin Cities to help shrink the digital divide. The focus includes helping people build digital skills in the workforce, expanding WiFi connected Lift Zones and funding connectivity and internet adoption programs. The funding also supports ongoing efforts to build awareness about affordable connectivity services like Internet Essentials, which offers eligible households high-speed internet for $9.95/month or Internet Essentials Plus for $29.95/month. Affordable computers are also available through Internet Essentials. Since its inception in 2011, the program has connected more than 480,000 students, parents, veterans and seniors in Minnesota.
