Serena Williams is an American professional tennis player. She has won 23 Grand Slam singles titles, the most by any player in the Open Era, and the second-most of all time behind Margaret Court. The Women’s Tennis Association ranked her singles world No. 1 on eight separate occasions between 2002 and 2017.

Serena is not only a star on the tennis court, but also a rockstar within the startup and business community. A few of her investments include: healthcare company Hued, education technology platform Fiveable, recipe start-up Foody and Indonesian coffee chain Kopi Kenangan, now considered a unicorn. Within the month of December and January, Williams has backed at least two start-ups.

In December, the company participated in a $4m seed round for Kiira, a technology-enabled healthcare provider that aims to address the needs of young multicultural women with a virtual care mobile app and personalised data-driven insights.

Williams is also a board member of Poshmark and Momentive. This month, she signed on as board adviser to Sorare. Sorare is a fantasy game of football, where players buy, sell, trade, and manage a virtual team with digital player cards. The game uses blockchain technology based on Ethereum and was developed in 2018 by Nicolas Julia and Adrien Montfort.

The company has increased its trading amount to from $7m in 2020 to $325m in 2021.

“NFTs have the potential to be a powerful tool for bringing equity and investment to women’s sports.  I’m excited to start working alongside … the team because they understand the relationship between athletes and fans unlike anyone else in the category, and I believe Sorare will be setting the culture and tone of the future of sports entertainment,” Williams said.

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.

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.

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'”?
