Crypto Rebounds Strongly. Bitcoin Is on the Way to $36,000. Next Bull Run Woohoo! Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are back in action! After a bit of a slump this week due to some regulatory pressure on Binance, they've bounced back and are on a bullish streak once again! The price of Bitcoin has gone up by 5% in just 24 hours, reaching $28,400, which is a level we haven't seen since June 2022See more
Another one (and a possible). Crypto lender #BlockFi is preparing for a potential bankruptcy filing after halting withdrawals of customer deposits + acknowledging it has “significant exposure” to bankrupt exchange FTX. Also Crypto. com has been having issues as well. This is why I’m critical on the platforms/exchanges that I share with you, Peeps. I not only look at the hype of it all, but also bSee more
$GOOGL has been slowly moving into Cryptocurrency and Blockchain. Back in 2018, they stated to ban all crypto-related advertising. Which I understand, the landscape was a bit risky until they understood their restructuring of infrastructure for which was to come. Then this in the first part of the year, the company announced that it was launching a new team dedicated to digital assets, and thiSee more
$WU is joining the influx of companies obtaining IP via trademarks showing their plans to move into Blockchain and Web3. One of the things I felt that we would be seeing more of is trademarks filings that give the roadmap of what platforms/brands would be doing w/in Web3. Western Union wants to launch its own virtual currency exchange and cryptocurrency token. Due to their current model - I canSee more
Everyone is talking about $MA launching a program to let financial institutions offer cryptocurrency — this program they are bridging w/ Paxos, a crypto trading platform already used by PayPal + other banks. Pretty much they saw what Coinbase is building and going to level set it but on the institutionalization side. Which is one of the lanes I saw earlier in the year. Major tokenization and DeFiSee more
As many have been talking about Kim Kardashian and her fine from the SEC for $1.26M. I made a different spin on in — we see the pathway to regulation happening right before our eyes. Kim and a few other celebrities + influencers made IG posts about Ethereum Max and their tokens (which were a Ponzi scheme). Their posts did not highlight the content was a paid ad; which are they are regulated to dSee more

Remember that loyalty program that $SBUX was launching? My spidey thoughts were correct — it’s a partnership with $MATIC . $MATIC has been the go-to for brands building in-bear. What do I mean by that are for those brands and infrastructures taking this cooling cycle to build for the future. I mean — $ETH 2.0 is here. And we know this will shift so much. Back to what’s brewing with these two: The name of the loyalty program is called Starbucks Odyssey (Swanky, I like it). It wants to show how sophisticated this is, especially with how #NFT and platforms in the past have been perceived (speaking in branding here). This program enables you to earn and buy digital collectible stamps and unlock new, coveted coffee experiences. A major part of this is the Polygon has near-zero gas fees and will give lightning-fast transactions. Plus — the design of the digital collectible stamps will be co-created with Starbucks partners (employees). It also includes a charitable component supporting causes that matter to partners. I spoke about how #NFT s will grow in the charitable space last week, so this makes me happy to see. So, what do you think about this new program, Starbies or Starbucks drinkers? If you are looking for ways to make this work for your stock portfolio, check out my older post breaking down how to leverage your purchases!

Mickey wants the metaverse cheese… I shared over the last couple of months how $DIS was moving steadying into the metaverse — from hiring to moving a ton of their ad spend to being digital to now even having activations happening on their cruise ships (soon coming). So much coming down the pipeline, but this latest news involves their iconic accelerator program.. they are partnering with $MATIC toSee more
Emirates, the largest airline in the United Arab Emirates, announced its intention to add bitcoin as a payment option and to make NFT collectibles tradable on the company’s website.  The airline based in Dubai also hopes to use #blockchain technology in tracing aircraft records.

Hey Peeps — just giving you a heads up that trading/purchasing of $LUNA had been halted on not only Public/Apex but other exchanges. You’ve seen context around the shake up that’s been happening which has triggered a decline in price. Also the validators have decided to halt the #terra chain to prevent governance attacks due to inflation (its very volatile right now) of certain happenings that hasSee more

I know folks are talking about $SHOP and their pending 10-for-1 stock split. To sum it up, if you’re holding one share of the stock. It will split into 10 shares while keeping the value of the share you held before the split the same. But the share price will decrease. But this one is different, they want to lock in the “founder share” — the reason is due to seeing the structure of companies ovSee more

Certain requirements must be met in order to trade options. Options can be risky and are not suitable for all investors. Options transactions are often complex, and investors can rapidly lose the entire amount of their investment or more in a short period of time. Investors should consider their investment objectives and risks carefully before investing in options. Refer to the Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before considering any options transaction. Supporting documentation for any claims, if applicable, will be furnished upon request. Tax considerations with options transactions are unique and investors considering options should consult their tax advisor as to how taxes affect the outcome of each options strategy.

“Bonds” shall refer to corporate debt securities and U.S. government securities offered on the Public platform through a self-directed brokerage account held at Public Investing and custodied at Apex Clearing. For purposes of this section, Bonds exclude treasury securities held in treasury accounts with Jiko Securities, Inc. as explained under the “ Treasury Accounts” section.

Investments in Bonds are subject to various risks including risks related to interest rates, credit quality, market valuations, liquidity, prepayments, early redemption, corporate events, tax ramifications and other factors. The value of Bonds fluctuate and any investments sold prior to maturity may result in gain or loss of principal. In general, when interest rates go up, Bond prices typically drop, and vice versa. Bonds with higher yields or offered by issuers with lower credit ratings generally carry a higher degree of risk. All fixed income securities are subject to price change and availability, and yield is subject to change. Bond ratings, if provided, are third party opinions on the overall bond's credit worthiness at the time the rating is assigned. Ratings are not recommendations to purchase, hold, or sell securities, and they do not address the market value of securities or their suitability for investment purposes.

High-Yield Cash Account.
A High-Yield Cash Account is a secondary brokerage account with Public Investing. Funds in your High-Yield Cash Account are automatically deposited into partner banks (“Partner Banks”), where that cash earns interest and is eligible for FDIC insurance. See here for a list of current Partner Banks. Your Annual Percentage Yield is variable and may change at the discretion of the Partner Banks or Public Investing. Apex Clearing and Public Investing receive administrative fees for operating this program, which reduce the amount of interest paid on swept cash. Neither Public Investing nor any of its affiliates is a bank. Learn more.

Alternative Assets.
Brokerage services for alternative assets available on Public are offered by Dalmore Group, LLC (“Dalmore”), member of FINRA & SIPC. “Alternative assets,” as the term is used at Public, are equity securities that have been issued pursuant to Regulation A of the Securities Act of 1933 (as amended) (“Regulation A”). This content is not investment advice. These investments are speculative, involve substantial risks (including illiquidity and loss of principal), and are not FDIC or SIPC insured. Alternative Assets purchased on the Public platform are not held in a Public Investing brokerage account and are self-custodied by the purchaser. The issuers of these securities may be an affiliate of Public Investing, and Public Investing (or an affiliate) may earn fees when you purchase or sell Alternative Assets. For more information on risks and conflicts of interest, see these disclosures. An affiliate of Public may be “testing the waters” and considering making an offering of securities under Tier 2 of Regulation A. No money or other consideration is being solicited and, if sent in response, will not be accepted. No offer to buy securities can be accepted, and no part of the purchase price can be received, until an offering statement filed with the SEC has been qualified by the SEC. Any such offer may be withdrawn or revoked, without obligation or commitment of any kind, at any time before notice of acceptance given after the date of qualification by the SEC or as stated in the offering materials relating to an investment opportunity, as applicable. An indication of interest to purchase securities involves no obligation or commitment of any kind.

Cryptocurrency trading, execution, and custody services are provided by Bakkt Crypto Solutions, LLC (NMLS ID 1828849) (“Bakkt”).

Treasury Accounts.
Investing services in treasury accounts offering 6 month US Treasury Bills on the Public platform are through Jiko Securities, Inc. (“JSI”), a registered broker-dealer and member of FINRA & SIPC. See JSI’s FINRA BrokerCheck and Form CRS for further information.

JSI uses funds from your Treasury Account to purchase T-bills in increments of $100 “par value” (the T-bill’s value at maturity). T-bills are purchased at a discount to the par value and the T-bill’s yield represents the difference in price between the “par value” and the “discount price.” Aggregate funds in your Treasury Account in excess of the T-bill purchases will remain in your Treasury Account as cash. The value of T-bills fluctuate and investors may receive more or less than their original investments if sold prior to maturity. T-bills are subject to price change and availability - yield is subject to change. Past performance is not indicative of future performance. Investments in T-bills involve a variety of risks, including credit risk, interest rate risk, and liquidity risk. As a general rule, the price of a T-bills moves inversely to changes in interest rates. Although T-bills are considered safer than many other financial instruments, you could lose all or a part of your investment. See Jiko U.S. Treasuries Risk Disclosures for further details.

Investments in T-bills: Not FDIC Insured; No Bank Guarantee; May Lose Value.

Banking services and bank accounts are offered by Jiko Bank, a division of Mid-Central National Bank.
