LA has become somewhat of a hotspot of NFT-related activity over the last year. A long line of NFT platforms have chosen to plant their legs in the sands of Silicon Beach, and investors are taking notice. The latest raise for Santa Monica-based NFT agency Autograph is a surefire sign that the NFT market will remain one of LA’s top tech sectors to watch in 2022.

After launching less than a year ago, Autograph has already managed to grab the attention of a few famous athletes including Simone Biles and Derek Jeter. Now, the company is receiving a fresh injection of capital to support it as it continues to scale. Autograph announced Wednesday that it grabbed $170 million in a Series B round led by Andreessen Horowitz and Kleiner Perkins.

The latest raise comes less than a year following the company’s Series A. The $35 million round closed last summer and, at the time, valued the company at a cool $735 million, according to PitchBook data.

Autograph got off the ground last August. The startup was co-founded by superstar quarterback Tom Brady and Whip Media CEO Richard Rosenblatt. In addition to featured collections from Biles and Jeter, the platform offers a wide range of signed collectibles available for sale from the likes of Tony Hawk, Tiger Woods and Naomi Osaka.

Each of the featured athletes on Autograph’s platform can drop a limited number of NFT collectibles across two categories: Premier drops and Signature drops. The primary difference between the two? Exclusivity.

While multiple versions of each collectible are available across each category, Premier drops contain a much higher volume of those available for purchase. Signature drop collectibles on the other hand, include authentic digital signatures. Each signature is completely unique. If there are 200 signed editions of a Tony Hawk collectible, for example, each one of those collectibles will have been individually signed.

Users hoping to access the Autograph platform will first need a DraftKings account. DraftKings primarily operates as a sports betting platform, but the company has recently teamed up with Autograph to facilitate the sale of its digitally signed collectibles.

“Our creative team works very closely with our athlete partners to create an authentic, artistic collection for consumers,” Rosenblatt said in a previous statement. “The speed at which we sold out is a testament to the high-quality and accessibility of the unique product we are offering.”

Waiting rooms for each drop open 30 minutes prior to the scheduled release time so that users can get a chance to join the digital queue.

With the additional capital, the company plans to greatly increase the size of its team. Autograph is now hiring for 40 positions spanning its engineering, marketing and recruiting teams, to name a few.

ATOTONILCO EL ALTO, Jalisco, MexicoJan. 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — PATRÓN, the world’s number one ultra-premium tequila, has teamed up with BlockBar.com, the world’s first direct to consumer NFT marketplace for wine and spirits, to launch its first-ever NFT, unlocking a bottle of the limited-edition PATRÓN Chairman’s Reserve. This a one-of-a-kind, exclusive blend is an incredible aged tequila reserved for the most discerning fans. It has, until now, never been released to the public, and purchase of the NFT provides ownership rights to the physical bottle of Chairman’s Reserve. A complex yet delicate tequila, made of 100% Extra Añejo, this release is the ultimate form of luxury, and is so rare that it will never be replicated again. Only 150 individually numbered bottles of this exquisite tequila will be available exclusively on BlockBar.com.

The craftsmanship, creativity, and talent of the legendary PATRÓN production team has allowed PATRÓN to constantly experiment, explore and create bold innovations – like PATRÓN Chairman’s Reserve – while staying committed to its handcrafted production process. Aged to its full potential in a combination of Sauternes (80%) barrels  and barrels made from both French Limousin and New American Oak in the Barrel Room at Hacienda PATRÓN, this tequila features an incredibly unique finish that creates a remarkable wine-like quality to complement the agave notes. This special release has a truly one-of-one formula with tasting notes of honey, butter and caramel followed by citrus touches of orange and tangerine.

The limited-edition Chairman’s Reserve blend is bottled in a handmade crystal decanter, hand-numbered by the PATRÓN familia, and beautifully packaged in a dome-shaped box with front-opening double doors featuring laser-cut panels that allow light to illuminate the liquid inside. The stunning packaging artwork is inspired by PATRÓN tequila’s birthplace in Atotonilco el Alto, Mexico with imagery evoking the Jalisco highlands, the PATRÓN Hacienda and agave fields. Constructed of dark, polished hard wood, hammered metal and luxurious engraving and inlays, the package itself is an object of art and desire.

“We’re thrilled to be working with BlockBar as the first tequila brand on the platform and for PATRÓN Tequila’s first-ever foray into the NFT market with the launch of PATRÓN Chairman’s Reserve. As one of the few brands that still makes tequila by hand, it’s exciting to be able to bring our passion and dedication to perfection and craftsmanship into the digital realm to a new audience of NFT collectors,” shares Kathy Parker, President and Global Chief Marketing Officer for PATRÓN.

The exceptional PATRÓN NFT with BlockBar.com bridges the physical and digital marketplace, whether it is acquired for personal enjoyment, investment purposes or securing a rare and unique item for tequila connoisseurs and NFT collectors. The cryptographic version will be held securely by BlockBar, with a record of authenticity held on the blockchain as a digital certificate of ownership. The buyer may choose to redeem the physical product and have it delivered from BlockBar’s secure storage facility, safely trade its NFT version within the BlockBar.com marketplace, keep in their virtual bar or gift it through BlockBar’s new gifting offering on BlockBar.com

“We’re excited to be a part of this innovative milestone for both PATRÓN Tequila launching its first NFT, and BlockBar teaming up with PATRÓN – the number one ultra-premium tequila – as the first tequila brand on our platform,” comments Dov Falic, co-founder and CEO of BlockBar.

The first-ever tequila NFT from PATRÓN will drop on https://blockbar.com/brands/Patron at 10AM EST on Tuesday 25th January, first come first served. The NFT priced at 1.5 ETH (approx. $4,500) may be purchased from BlockBar with Ethereum (ETH) or by credit card.

About PATRÓN Tequila: From hand-harvesting the highest-quality 100 percent Weber Blue Agave, to the traditional, time-honored distillation process and individual labeling, numbering, and inspection of each bottle, PATRÓN tequila is crafted with meticulous precision and care. Though PATRÓN has grown to become one of the most recognized and respected luxury spirits brands in the world, it is still exclusively produced in the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, in the same small batches and with the same commitment to quality and craftsmanship.

TAMPA, Fla.Jan. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Pocket Network, incentivizes a global community of independent node operators and service providers to run 22,000+ full nodes as demand across its network measured in API calls (or relays) soars generating $150M+ revenue in the last 30 days. This record growth puts Pocket Network 2nd only to Ethereum, with a total market cap of $385B who generated $1.1Bn revenue in the same 30 day period as shown by on-chain metrics on Token Terminal.

Pocket Network is secured by $320M+ worth of network infrastructure distributed globally across 23 countries. The protocol reduces the risk of service downtime to near zero for any layer 1 blockchains or industry DApps using Pocket Network as work is distributed evenly across thousands of full nodes, which also protects end users’ privacy and significantly bolsters the multichain Web3 revolution that’s underway.

“We are growing rapidly in Europe and North America, which are currently staking the most, but we are extremely excited about the Asia market as more and more retail is starting to learn about Pocket,” said Michael O’Rourke, CEO of Pocket Network.

LOS ANGELESJan. 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Consumers are increasingly engaging on video chats and thinking to themselves if “it could have been much easier as a phone call”? Especially when that video call involved a few people that have no idea how to use a computer, let alone connect to a video. Add in new complications we’ve had to conquer including (but not limited to) sending out electronic invites, downloading new software or applications, troubleshooting/possible delays due to tech issues, giving up personal data, and even paying for services on top of our normal utility expenses, and the plot thickens.

In this post-pandemic era, the vocabulary has changed to from “let’s set a call” to “let’s set up a video conference,” says Ali Hashemian, president of Kinetic Financial. This has been very conducive to the tech industry continuing to drive revenues in this socially trending economy. While Hashemian’s expertise is not related to social media or technology in general; his expertise is in financial planning. So how do we evaluate all these tech trends – and specifically the metaverse – from a financial/investment perspective?

 

Hashemian goes on to explain, “Don’t get me wrong, I believe that video conferencing technology (particularly the ability to share visual information virtually and remotely) is a very powerful tool in almost every industry. The question isn’t “yes or no” but “when, why, and how.”

“Let’s look back on a couple of historically successful stock stories; I want you to ask yourself those same questions I posed. If you think about Amazon or Tesla, the ‘yes or no’ doesn’t even seem relevant. And the ‘when, why, and how’ have always seemed obvious.

“Let’s fast forward to a more relevant and less obvious example: blockchain (specifically cryptocurrency). The ‘yes or no’ was a lot harder for investors to decipher, and still is. But if you look at the ‘when, why, and how’ there was almost no question. We were at a time that the world was looking for digital assets (when). Other asset classes were peaking, so investors were looking for options but didn’t want to invest in traditional currencies and commodities (why). Blockchain offered a digital, alternative, and private way to invest (how).

“Let’s look at augmented reality, which was a few years ahead of blockchain. The ‘yes or no’ question feels like most would answer yes. Who wouldn’t want to wear a pair of glasses that can read your text messages aloud to you, record everything you saw that day, and tell you about the temperature in real time? But if you think from the position of ‘when, why, and how,’ a different picture is painted.

“The truth is, we already had our smart phones which gave us access to all the same information; but instead of all that info being thrust on us constantly through glasses, we get it on demand via our phones. In a time when people want to be in control of the influence technology has on their lives, augmenting reality did not fit our social trends (when). Since we had many options that could give us the same information without the added technology of augmented reality, there was no real practical reasoning to adopt the new tech (why). To utilize augmented reality, you would either need to integrate a new device that would be expensive and possibly change your image, like glasses, or stare through your phone camera for your entire life – pretty unreasonable from a practicality standpoint (how).

“I think it is too early, from an investment standpoint, to determine the financial value of a metaverse. However, it is important to put on your financial goggles (no pun intended) when you decide on a strategy for your money. This may be a good opportunity for you to test your rational investing skills. Does the ‘when, why, and how’ create a demand for a three-dimensional internet existence or are you just following the simplistic investment view of ‘yes or no'”?

SAN FRANCISCODec. 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Justin Kan, Co-Founder of Twitch, launched Fractal today, his new marketplace for gaming NFTs. The company launched with a slate of leading partner blockchain games, including AuroryCaveworldGenopetsMini RoyaleNyan HeroesPanzerdogsPortalsPhoto FinishSolchicksSyn CityThe Sandbox, and more. These titles collectively merchandise billions in NFT value within their games. Players on Fractal will be able to buy gaming NFTs for partner games directly from studio drops or in the resale market from other players.

NFTs are the latest trend in digital assets: digital records of ownership of virtual items that are stored on a public blockchain. Many new gaming companies are generating revenue to fund the development of their games by preselling NFTs that have in-game value to players. Fractal is the first digital marketplace to focus on gaming NFTs. Fractal is founded by industry veterans and serial entrepreneurs in gaming and e-commerce, including Justin Kan, who was previously co-founder of Twitch.

“Players will now own their in-game assets and be able to take them with them wherever they go,” said Justin Kan, co-founder of Fractal. “Durable digital assets through NFTs are the future of gaming. We’ve partnered with some of the most innovative gaming companies on the Solana blockchain to bring that future forward.”

“We’ve seen over 100,000 community members join our Discord server within 10 days since we announced Fractal, making Fractal one of the fastest growing communities in crypto” said Mr. Kan. “Players are excited about blockchain games and we’re excited about all the new experiences that will be enabled by them.”

Fractal went live today on the Solana blockchain and players were immediately able to start trading in-game assets by connecting a crypto wallet such as Phantom. As a reward for joining the community early, the first 100,000 members will soon be receiving their own unique Fractal NFT. These NFTs will unlock future benefits for the NFT holder within the Fractal community and potentially in third-party games as well.

“Fractal is a marketplace for gamers made by gamers. We believe it can help bring new audiences to discover NFTs and the possibilities offered by our open gaming Metaverse, so we’re happy to see users will soon be able to exchange, sell their virtual LANDS NFTs and game assets on Fractal,” said Sebastien Borget, Co-founder and COO of The Sandbox.

“We’re really excited to be working with Fractal,” said Albert Chen, Co-Founder and CEO of Genopets. “We believe their gaming-focused NFT marketplace will bring innovative functions that help us expand the play-to-earn experience to gamers around the world.”

DENVERDec. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — NFTglee has partnered with John Salley in a meaningful move to own the rights, distribution, and ongoing value creation associated with his content and brand.

John Salley and NFTglee will launch The SPRK Network, built exclusively on Bitcoin, to unlock the freedom rights that have been taken by media conglomerates for decades. Celebrity tokens will now be associated with the ‘NIL’ (name, image, likeness) rights rather than unfair and upside down contracts pilfered by Hollywood for far too long.

John Salley and Bitcoin

“Bitcoin is freedom. In consistently searching for avenues to empower myself, and all of my friends, I’ve come to the conclusion that true ownership of our work is a must. Non- fungible tokens built on Bitcoin is the foundation of that opportunity.”

“Instead of intermediaries and entertainment industry roadblocks, I’ve found the key that unlocks the direct to consumer media and content model. The technology provides incredible upside and value to both the consumer and the creator – and more and more of us creators are beginning to see it.”

“I’m so excited to be a first mover in taking back what is ours… our work, our content, our names, ownership. And again, Bitcoin provides the rails by which we can connect directly with the public. I can’t wait to show everybody what’s to come!” – John Salley, 4- Time NBA Champion, Media Personality, and Wellness Advocate.

Name, Image, and Likeness NFT’s Surge

NFTglee’s newly hired President of Media and Entertainment, Jonah Hart, agrees with the explosion in NFT’s associated with content and media across the industry.

“The value proposition for the artist and their fans is unprecedented. I believe 2022 will prove to be a wave of mass adoption of NFT’s across the music and creator economy that will have labels and brands scrambling to keep up. The ability for artists to go directly to consumers with a remarkably better value proposition is powerful. John Salley and his network are on the cutting edge here, but we believe (and are already seeing) a wave of those like him ready to follow in his footsteps.”

The SPRK Network ‘Effect’ And Bitcoin

Building on Bitcoin continues to grab mindshare within celebrity and influencer communities. The Spark Network will capitalize on John Salley’s considerable talents; but also his ability to walk his celebrity colleagues through a narrative that allows them to be set free from the captivity of media conglomerates that do not have the artists best interest in mind.

The SPRK Network — which will be launched along with John’s partners, Greg RomanoRoss Mark, and Dr. Dan Ratner — is the first of its kind: a new streaming network that will be built exclusively on Bitcoin, to unlock the freedom rights that have been taken by media conglomerates for decades. Celebrity tokens will now be associated with the ‘NIL’ (name, image, likeness) rights rather than unfair and upside down contracts pilfered by Hollywood for far too long. SPRK Network launches on 2/22/22 and will include channels on mind body wellness, sports, cryptocurrency, education, documentaries, comedy specials, and original shows and movies.

“The SPRK Network is about making a one to one connection with consumers and fans unlike anything that has been done in media. The artist is in complete control of their work, their revenue, and the ways in which they engage with consumers. The shackles are being removed here, and it’s so exciting.” – John Salley, 4-Time NBA Champion, Media Personality, and Wellness Advocate.

Specifically, The SPRK Network will issue NFT tokens directly to consumers that will give those individuals direct and unprecedented access to celebrities, artists, creators and their content. Podcasts, AMA’s, reality tv series, concerts, appearances, experiences, and events – all facilitated by The SPRK Network token and series of tokens.

“We are passionate about giving creators and artists of every genre access to all of their value. No more friction, middle men, or inflated costs. In many ways this is the real world application of ‘Bitcoin fixes this’ – a well known phrase in the Bitcoin community. We are thrilled to have partnered with John Salley, whose been a voice of economic freedom in many areas.”

“We remain so impressed by his enthusiasm and energy to unlock incredible opportunities for his friends and colleagues across media and entertainment. 2022 is going to be a big year for NFT’s built on Bitcoin.” – Tillman Holloway, CEO NFTglee.

About John Salley: A proud native of Brooklyn, New York, John found a love for basketball at an early age. He accepted a Basketball Scholarship to Georgia Tech to play for legendary head coach Bobby Cremins. He went on to great success in the NBA with the Detroit Pistons, Miami Heat, Toronto Raptors, Chicago Bulls, and Los Angeles Lakers. After he hung up his NBA sneakers Mr. Salley went on to media success via

The Best Damn Sports Show Period and E! Entertainment. Mr. Salley is passionate about health and wellness and practices a vegan lifestyle and is known as an accomplished Chef.
