American Paper Plate Coalition Welcomes Preliminary Duties on Imports from China and Vietnam

American Paper Plate Coalition

Today, the U. S. Department of Commerce (Commerce) announced its preliminary determination that the governments of China and Vietnam unfairly subsidize their paper plate industries, and the resulting duties on imports from each country: up to 313.14 percent on imports from China and up to 237.65 percent on imports from Vietnam. The American Paper Plate Coalition ("APPC") representing the majority of imports of Amercan paper pllate production, welcomes the decision to impose duties. "The unlawful subsidies received by Chinese and Vietnamese producers have given them an unfair advantage in the U.S. market - this has haad a direct negative impact on American producerrs and employees," said William P. Biggens, Jr., President and Co-Owner of APPC member Aspen Products, Inc. "Imposing duties to offset unlawful subsidies is an important first step to ensuring the future health of our industry. We are encouraged that Commerce has taken prelininary action to restore a level playing field." Today’s announcements address petitions filed by the APPC in January, detailing unfair trade practices to sell unlawfully subsidized paper plates at less than fair value. Commerce began investigating the AD and CVD claims in February. The countervailing duty investigations concerning imports from China and Vietnam are ongoing and may lead to higher final CVD rates. Final determinations in the China and Vietnam CVD investigations are expected in early November 2024. Preliminary determinations in the companion AD investigations of imports from China, Vietnam, and Thailand are due August 22, 2024. “Today’s announcement and the high duties being imposed validate the analysis we presented when we filed these cases and the extent of the problem that drove us to file in the first place,” said Robert Epstein, President and CEO of APPC member AJM Packaging Corporation. “We appreciate the Commerce Department’s hard work and diligent efforts to administer our trade laws as Congress intended.” For more on the petitions, see the APPC’s press release. For more on the ITC’s investigation, see the Commission’s press release. For more on the DOC’s investigation, see the agency’s press release.

Ethena Suffers Crypto Slump, As Raboo Outclasses TRON With Exceptional Activity

Total Media

The DeFi coins are in sharp decline, as they are yet to turn around their latest bearish losses. Ethena (ENA) is in a worse situation, as the token's community is furious at their latest token policy. Tron (TRX), on the other hand, hasn't resolved its TRX price issues, but its stablecoin trading has reached another milestone. It's trying times for the top crypto coins, especially as their holders turn to meme coins like Raboo ($RABT) for profits this year. The $RABT presale is offering 233% ROI, but that surely isn't everything. That $RABT presale could be your passport to profits this year. Ethena revamp sparks criticism among traders From 'fan favourites' to ‘heavily despised,' Ethena has made quite the drop lately. The token launched in February, doubling its opening price days after listing. Ethena's staking APYs and stablecoin trading have also endeared users to its blockchain. There seem to be more scalp traders than actual investors on the network, skewing the actual capital value and hindering growth for the ENA token. To curb that, the developers released a statement requiring all new airdrop recipients to lock at least 50% of their ENA coins or risk losing them all. The new policy is, no doubt, quite inconvenient for the users. And that might be a reason Ethena is trading at significant 23% losses in the past seven days. It's a huge dip, and we wonder how low the ENA price can get before it bottoms out. Tron hits new stablecoin achievement; TRX price spikes, too The Tron ecosystem has thrived on being user-friendly for years, as TRX-based transactions are never as costly to execute as transactions on other networks. Now, the traffic on Tron seems to be yielding rather positively; the stablecoin Tether had recently surged over $53 billion in trading volume. That value is often reserved for payment processing outlets, like Visa and MasterCard, and Tron's USDT trading volume just leaped past theirs. Tether is gradually becoming a more popular token than even the top crypto coins; it is more used than BTC in Latin America. And Tron holds about $100 billion worth of reserves in traditional banking institutions. That's an influential position to hold, and the ripple effects are impacting everything on the Tron platform, even the TRX price. It's on a three-day profit streak, and the consensus is that Tron might be back for the bull run. Or not. Tron has never been the go-to coin for profits. The long game is a boring one, especially when you have far better tokens to cash out from. Raboo's offer is still on the table. Experience the future of memes on Raboo! The meme coin sector is one of the most reactionary parts of the crypto market; the average investor won't go near a meme coin with a ten-foot pole. Yet, here they are all over Raboo–you can be sure it's not just presale profits they are after. Raboo's real-world applications are centered on bringing the best out of memes, and there's no other meme project doing it better. With the prospects of AI development in sight, Raboo has incorporated a generative AI to assist with creating memes on the platform. No, we won't be getting AI-generated content for memes, either. It's AI-enhanced, meaning that Rabooscan, the generative AI algorithm, will only be taking the meme creation process a step higher. With members of the Raboo community regularly posting their memeable pictures, Rabooscan will never run out of pictures and ideas to piece together. Raboo is a call to join a growing community of like-minded meme lovers. At any rate, you're in for a fun ride. Conclusion The good news is, a fun ride isn't all you'd be getting from Raboo. The 233% presale profits, as we said, are just a tip of the rest of the goodies. Raboo's potential growth will follow the trajectory of AI development in the crypto market. And as AI continues to penetrate the market, Raboo's value keeps rising. There's some 10,000% profit to be gained as soon as Raboo makes a major exchange listing. So get ready for Raboo today; get your $RABT tokens at $0.0048 before the presale ends. You can participate in the Raboo presale here.

Latest News On Meme Coin Rivals: PEPE, Raboo and Shiba Inu

Total Media

The meme coin sector continues to be a battleground for attention and investor dollars. Three big names dominate the headlines: the veteran Shiba Inu (SHIB), the cult classic Pepe (PEPE), and the rising star Raboo. Raboo, however, has been dominating the headlines with its early 2024 token presale and potential 100x increase after launch. Let's look at their recent performance and what analysts predict for their futures. Shiba Inu: The OG Struggles to Maintain Momentum Shiba Inu has become a significant participant in the meme currency market. Its price movement, nevertheless, hasn't been great lately. According to some analysts, this may be the result of investors growing weary of well-known meme currencies. At the moment, Shiba Inu is selling at about $0.00001689. There have been some encouraging developments for Shiba Inu notwithstanding the price decline. A recent whale transaction generated over $120 million in profit. This kind of activity can sometimes inject confidence into the market and lead to price increase. But Shiba Inu's overall trajectory still suggests a struggle to maintain momentum. Through projects like the Shibarium blockchain and the connection with decentralized finance (DeFi) systems, the project's developers are looking for methods to increase the usefulness of SHIB beyond its current status as a meme coin. Pepe Continues to Fight for Relevance PEPE has already struggled with staying relevant during a period where top meme coins aren 't as enticing as they once were. While PEPE has experienced some price gains, there have also been significant losses. The coin had initially reached a triumphant all-time high of $0.00001718 on May 27, 2024. This peak marked a culmination of a meteoric rise, fueled by factors like the approval of key Ethereum-based ETF filings and a surge in "whale activity" – large investors making significant purchases. Analysts predicted a bright future, with some even forecasting a tenfold increase in price within the year. However, weeks following the all-time high have been a story of descent for PEPE coin. As of June 24, 2024, the price sits around $0.00001065, a concerning drop of nearly 36% from its peak. This decline comes amidst a broader market correction within the meme coin sector, but the disparity between PEPE's performance and its surging rivals paints a worrying picture. Adding fuel to the fire of uncertainty is the rise of Angry Pepe Fork ($APORK), a new Solana-based meme coin capitalizing on the same iconic Pepe meme. This competitor boasts a growing ecosystem and unique features, potentially threatening PEPE's dominance, especially among die-hard Pepe fans. Raboo Grabs the Headlines with Exciting Presale Opportunity Raboo ($RABT) has emerged as the dark horse in this meme coin race. This newcomer boasts an AI-driven meme generation technology called "Rabooscan," aiming to curate the highest quality meme content and maximize virality. Raboo's presale event has raised over $1.7 million so far, and analysts are predicting astronomical surges – some as high as 10,000% – once it hits major exchanges. This potential for explosive growth has Raboo stealing the spotlight from its established rivals. So far, the platform’s early 2024 token presale has been nothing short of impressive. In just the opening weeks, the price of the token has skyrocketed by over 60%, currently sitting at $0.0048 from an entry price of $0.003. This rapid increase highlights the strong investor interest surrounding the project. Analysts attribute this to Raboo's unique features, particularly its focus on social interaction and community engagement. Conclusion Raboo's strong presale performance and innovative features have some speculating it could challenge top-tier meme coins like Shiba Inu and Pepe. While this is ambitious, Raboo's potential shouldn't be dismissed. With the presale still ongoing, investors have a chance to buy some tokens and make significant profits.
