As the name implies, ImagineAR (IP:CSE / IPNFF:OTCQB) is an Augmented Reality Company … but they’re not just any AR company. Imagine enables businesses to create their own mobile phone AR campaigns with no programming or technology experience.  

Why is that important?  Ask Apple CEO Tim Cook who stated 

“AR Will play an important role in how we use technology in the future – and promises to be as influential in our society as the smartphone”   

For those of you that are just discovering Augmented Reality, “AR” is essentially a technology that lays digital images and graphics over the real world, typically by looking through your cell phone or special glasses.  If you think it sounds like a gimmick, it isn’t.  AR will create an entirely new revenue stream for businesses, organizations and sports teams that will boggle the mind in the next 3 years.

ImagineAR provides small-cap investors with an opportunity to participate in the growth of this mega-market in the making …. and IP delivered record revenues in the first 9 months of the year with a 385% increase over last year to prove it, thanks to deals and announcements as follows:

Tier-1 Clients  

  • Shoppers Drug Mart
  • NFL Alumni, 
  • 2 biggest soccer teams in Spain – Valencia / Real Sociedad
  • Club Atletico Mineiro (Brazil) 
  • Grubhub Sound Bites: Megan Thee Stallion, Noah Cyrus

Hype Sports Global Accelerator Program where it was selected by 18 various sports teams, leagues, and broadcasters including 

  • SPORTS – Vegas Knights, Philadelphia Phillies, 
  • ESPORTS – SK Gaming; FC Koln
  • MEDIA – Sinclair Broadcasting, Rogers Communications, 

All this success was recently recognized when Imagine AR was Selected by the STA Group as one of the 2021 STA Startups Category Stage Winners for Sports Fan Engagement

What did Alen Paul Silverrstieen, CEO and President of Imagine AR have to say;

“To be selected as a 2021 STA Startup Category Stage Winner for Fan Engagement is truly an honor and further positions our company as one of the up-and-coming global sports tech leaders,” said “This STA selection can open up new sales and partnership  opportunities for ImagineAR as well throughout the world. We are excited to compete against other global winners for the overall 2021 Startup of the Year Award in the near future.”

And if that is not enough…

In advance of the holiday season, ImagineAR is launching FameDays.com to deliver celebrity hologram e-greetings to sports and entertainment fans. 

Using the FameDays TM mobile app for both IOS and Android, fans can enjoy birthday, holiday, superfan hologram video messages right in their home and record their own videos and pics with the virtual star as if they are standing right next to them in real life and share in social media. Premiere hologram stars are expected to include NFL & MLB Superstars, Reality TV Stars, Pro Wrestlers and new celebrity holograms to be added regularly. 

Is this worth getting excited about?

VIDEO – HPQ Silicon Receives U.S. Patent for Its PUREVAP™ Quartz Reduction Reactor Technology

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 4:37 PM on Tuesday, November 30th, 2021

HPQ Silicon Resources $HPQ $HPQFF is a Quebec-based company that is developing high value-added silicon products that are sought after by battery and electric vehicle manufacturers – but nobody has yet delivered – until now.   

If that sounds a lot like what other small companies are saying lately, $HPQ differentiates itself as a leader of the pack thanks to the following:  

The Company recently announced Receipt of U.S. Patent for Its PUREVAP™ Quartz Reduction Reactor Technology

To understand the importance and the implications of this milestone, this excerpt from the press release says it all:

The US patent covers the PUREVAP™ QRR innovative process, which permits the one-step transformation of quartz (SiO 2 ) into high purity silicon metal (from 99.5% to 99.99% Si) at reduced costs, energy input, and carbon footprint. This game-changing advantage means that the PUREVAP™ QRR process not only produces a higher purity silicon material than traditional processes, but it does not require the extremely pure feedstock needed by conventional processes. In fact, the process only requires 4.5 MT of raw material to make 1 MT of Silicon, versus the 6 MT required by conventional processes, a 25% reduction which potentially allows a 20% cash cost advantage versus the lowest cost traditional Silicon producer . Furthermore, as part of our ongoing strategy of protecting and strengthening the PUREVAP™ Intellectual Property Portfolio, a second patent application, focusing on a new and novel process was filed in 2019 and is presently advancing through the process. 

Bernard Tourillon, President and CEO of HPQ commented,

“HPQ has been at the forefront of Low-Cost Green Silicon innovation developments since 2015, and getting this U.S. patent approval, combined with the ongoing commissioning of the GEN3 PUREVAP™ QRR pilot plant , has occurred at an opportune time, as demand continues to rise and bottlenecks we had foreseen are now occurring in the silicon supply chain. With ESG principles playing an active role in materials sourcing, the world is more aware of the difficulty of securing the ESG compliant Silicon needed to meet its renewable energy goals. The reality of chronic underinvestment in new technologies combined with the offshoring of Silicon production capacity, has created a massive opportunity for HPQ and its PUREVAP™ QRR patented process, as we are the only company to bring to market a new process to make Silicon that is perfectly suited to the new demands and realities of the Silicon market

VIDEO – Empower Clinics Q3-21 Revenue Up 372% YOY, Further Clinic Expansion Under Way

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 4:37 PM on Monday, November 29th, 2021

Nine-month year-over-year revenue growth of 1,349% 

Empower Clinics continues to fire on all cylinders. This is evident by the strong Q3 results that the company released last week. 

Steven McAuley, Chairman and CEO of Empower commented: 

“This quarter marked the start of a new chapter for the Company and the Empower team. We launched The Medi-Collective brand and clinics, expanded Kai Labs’ facilities and completed the acquisition of MediSure. Each of these milestones is an intrinsic aspect of our strategic growth vision. 

Key Q3-2021 Highlights

  • Revenue from continuing operations of $405,707 compared to $85,960 in Q3 2020, representing 372% year-over-year growth.
  • Revenue from continuing operations of $3,226,335 for nine months YTD 2021 compared to $222,690 for nine months YTD 2020, representing 1,349% year over year growth.

What does CEO Steven McAuley think of these results?

“With positive year-over-year growth coming out of this quarter, we will maximize our fully operational divisions’ capabilities and reach across Canada and the U.S. I’m encouraged by our partnerships and acquisitions progress into Q4 2021 and look forward to the coming months.”

Could MDMA-Assisted Therapy Be a Treatment for Alcohol Use Disorder?

Could MDMA-assisted therapy be a treatment for alcohol use disorder? A new study says psychotherapy under the influence of the drug MDMA could help patients process the traumatic experiences that are often the root cause of this condition. Psychedelics have long been considered in the treatment of alcohol use disorder, with scientists in the ‘60s hypothesizing that it might. Click the link above to learn more about MDMA and alcohol use disorder. Learn more about LSD and alcohol use disorder here.

Psychedelic Therapy Is Poised to Create a Revolution in Mental Health, Can VR Accelerate It?

Virtual reality could be the next great digital frontier. And thinking has already begun for how it can advance the mental health revolution we are currently in. “The use of VR in medical settings to provide emotional care is not a new concept. Over the past several years VR has been employed with greater frequency and effectiveness in ways large and small. Recently, the staff at a hospital in Long Beach, California, used virtual reality tech in a simple yet valuable context, distracting young patients during medical procedures like removing a cast.”

5 Genes That May Affect Your Reaction to Psychedelic Drugs Like ‘Magic’ Mushrooms and LSD

Your genetics may hold some clues as to how psychedelics might affect you. But the test isn’t perfect and results should be taken with a grain of salt: “The test covers five different DNA markers for psychedelic sensitivity, metabolism, and mental health risk. However, some of the conclusions drawn by HaluGen are oversimplified or based on outdated science, experts told VICE.”

Michael J. Fox Foundation Grant Will Fund First Clinical Trial of Ketamine to Treat Depression in People With Parkinson’s Disease

Researchers from the Yale Department of Psychiatry were awarded a US$2 million grant for a first-of-its-kind clinical trial. “Holmes and Sanacora will compare the efficacy of ketamine (six infusions administered intravenously over three weeks) to placebo in 50 individuals with Parkinson’s disease and depression. Using cutting-edge brain imaging they will also study the mechanistic effects of ketamine on synaptic connections and functional networks in the brain.” In a similar vein, we recently launched the Psychedelic Palliative Care by Novamind program earlier this fall. It’s a program that supports the mental health of adults coping with serious or chronic physical illness such as cancer, heart disease, Parkinson’s or pain conditions. Learn more here.

VIDEO – Liquid Avatar Launches 3D Meta Hero Project Avatar Platform, Allows Users to Fully Customize and Personalize Their Avatar

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 4:03 PM on Wednesday, November 24th, 2021

Liquid Avatar is a global blockchain & personal identity solutions company specializing in empowering individuals to manage, control and generate value from their biometrically-verified Self Sovereign digital Identity (“SSI”) .. … while also providing businesses and governments the ability to easily integrate digital wallets and digital identity solutions through its Liquid Avatar platform (www.liquidavatar.com).

As the digital universe has continued to expand, there is an ever-increasing need to verify online identity.

The internet has evolved from dot-com read-only to Web 2.0 read and engage to Web3 … which I can best describe as entering the Matrix for some older viewers amongst us OR RP1 for our younger investors.   

The technical term is the Metaverse.  First coined in Neal Stephenson’s 1992 sci-fi novel, Snow Crash, as a concept that blends digital and physical existence.   

Today we discuss two great press releases:

Aftermath Islands

Oasis’ client Aftermath Islands has received significant interest on the sales from its initial Phase 1 launch of Virtual Land and is now launching its initial Virtual Land sales for Phase 2 of its metaverse platform. Like the previous Phase 1 group of islands, some of which are already sold out.

Meta Hero Project

A new 3D Meta Hero Project Avatar platform that allows users to fully customize and personalize their avatar with their life-like body type and photo-realistic face, together with unique skills and powers from a range of classes, giving them the ability to integrate with digital identity and be part of new and emerging online games and metaverse activities, including Aftermath Islands.

Meta Heroes combine gameplay, interactive engagement, and socialization seamlessly through fully controllable, high-quality, personalized 3D avatars. Meta Hero Project will be one of the first photo-realistic, life-like, customizable, personalized, and interactive NFTs, fully rigged for animation and play and that will conform to game, emerging metaverse, and digital identity standards.

This is next-level stuff that you aren’t going to want to miss.  Sit back, relax and watch this powerful interview.

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 5:10 PM on Tuesday, November 23rd, 2021
This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is fans-square-300x300.jpg

FansUnite Entertainment $FANS $FUNFF is a global sports and entertainment company, focusing on technology for online gambling.

  • A successful $25,000,000 raise earlier this year to arm the company for acquisitions.

Today they announced a $USD 58,000,000 acquisition that can best be described by CEO Scott Burton in this powerful quote: 

“The acquisition of American Affiliate represents the most significant milestone for FansUnite to date,” said Scott Burton, CEO of FansUnite Entertainment. “This transformative transaction will provide us further access to the lucrative U.S. regulated sports betting and online gambling market while generating accretive, high-margin revenue, expanding our leadership team, and accelerating the growth of our company’s footprint in the global gambling market.”

VIDEO – Liquid Avatar Announces First Age Verifiable Metaverse Components With Cannabis and Vegas Partnerships On Aftermath Islands. LA Comic Con “Surprises” Planned For 100,000 + Attendees

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:48 AM on Thursday, November 18th, 2021
Liquid avatar logo v1 nk

The internet has evolved from Web 1.0 (dot-com read only) back in the 90’s to Web 2.0 (read and write) over the last 15 years to the current emergence of Web3 … which I can best describe as entering the Matrix (for some older investors) OR Ready Player 1 for our younger investors.  

The technical term is the Metaverse.  It’s already a $30B market BUT we haven’t seen anything yet based on the following: 

  • According to Strategy Analytics, the global metaverse market size is projected to increase ~ 1,000% to $280 billion by 2025 from $30.7 billion in 2021 SOURCE  … but we think that’s a very conservative estimate
  • Bloomberg Intelligence believes the Metaverse can reach $800 billion by 2024.
  • South Korea’s biggest asset manager, Samsung Asset Management, recently launched a metaverse fund.

IS THE METAVERSE HERE

It was always coming but we just didn’t know when because we needed two things to happen – the evolution of technology and acceptance.  

The technology is now here thanks to AR, VR, Blockchain and the rise of NFTs, which Liquid Avatar has been at the forefront of since Day 1.

Acceptance was always a bit more of a wildcard because it is a pretty big shift – but the Covid-19 pandemic was the catalyst that drove the internet to the next stage of its evolution – the ‘Metaverse’ where cyberspace becomes more of an interactive 3D space with commerce and networking alongside content, much like the worlds in popular games such as Fortnite and Roblox,

Roundhill Investments, a major ETF sponsor focused on thematic and sector-specific investing stated “We Believe More Virtual Platforms Will Emerge … New virtual platforms will emerge, and they will likely exceed today’s leaders”

ENTER LIQUID AVATAR METAVERSE ENTRY WITH AFTERMATH ISLANDS

Two weeks ago Liquid Avatar announced that it’s Sale of Virtual Land NFTs in Aftermath Islands Metaverse Went Live .  Though we don’t have official numbers yet, we do know that all virtual land in “Musk Manor” and “Bitcoin Bay” sold out pretty fast, so it’s safe to say that Aftermath Islands is off to great success.

With that kind of success, it’s no wonder $LQID is planning to showcase its Metaverse chops at what might be the biggest Comic Con of the year as we come out of COVID – LA Comic Con – where they were named as the Digital Innovation Partner back on October 26.  Subsequently $LQID announced announced Hosting a Metaverse Mainstage Panel at Los Angeles Comic Con, Featuring Aftermath Islands ..where it will also has over 1,500 square feet of prime floor space that will showcase NFT subsidiary Oasis Studios, Aftermath Islands, comic and graphics art partner Apex Comics Group … and as yet to be announced “surprises”.

This week $LQID added another great element to Aftermath Islands, the first ever age verified islands as follows:

Aftermath Islands Partners with Primo Gardens to Create Cannabis Cove the First Metaverse Island Group Dedicated to Cannabis Sector

Aftermath Islands Partners with Vegas.com Creator to Launch Vegas Island in the Metaverse

These are powerful initiatives because the genesis of $LQID is biometrically verified digital identity … giving the Company a substantial advantage in the race towards building the Metaverse.

If you’re a small cap investor that wants exposure to The Metaverse, make sure to watch this great interview with CEO David Lucatch.

VIDEO – TAAT Global Alternatives $TAAT $TOBAF “Beyond Tobacco” Eyes $10m Investment Boost, Preps Branded Apparel for Q1 2022 $MO $PM $BATS

Posted by AGORACOM-AB at 9:23 AM on Monday, October 18th, 2021

To understand the value proposition of TAAT, you first have to understand some recent massive trends in the Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) space:

  • Non-alcoholic beer has grown to an $18bn USD market
  • The plant-based meat market is projected to hit $74bn USD By 2027

What they have in common is providing consumers of the original products with the exact same experience (taste, smell, etc.) without the negative parts of the original products.

TAAT has developed a nicotine-free and tobacco-free smoking experience known as TAAT™, which already launched in the USA. TAAT™ Beyond Tobacco™ cigarettes mimic those experiences without nicotine or tobacco.

Engineered to closely emulate the sensory components to provide the closest experience of smoking a tobacco cigarette – a product that tastes and smells just like tobacco – but without the nicotine.

October has seen a flurry of news for the company: 

OCT 5: The company reported Q3 2021 Financial Results:

1. Gross revenue grew to an all-time high of $1,305,358 in Q3 2021, an increase of 1,956% YOY

Novamind Granted DEA Licenses for Psilocybin Research

We are pleased to announce we have been granted Schedule 1 licenses (the “DEA Licenses”) from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) for Dr. Reid Robison, Chief Medical Officer, and Dr. Paul Thielking, Chief Scientific Officer. The DEA Licenses are required for research sites planning to host clinical trials for psilocybin, enabling principal investigators to store and administer this controlled substance.

“Obtaining the DEA Licenses is a critical step towards hosting clinical trials for psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy,” commented Dr. Robison. “We’re proud of our clinical research organization’s track record investigating innovative solutions for central nervous system conditions. This milestone reflects our expertise and enables us to continue on our mission to create breakthroughs in mental health treatment.”

Psilocybin has shown significant positive outcomes for people with major depressive disorder¹ and for reducing anxiety and depression in people with life-threatening cancer.² As of today, there are over 50 clinical studies actively examining the use of psilocybin, as listed on www.clinicaltrials.gov.

“The DEA Licenses are timely,” said Dr. Thielking, who last week launched Psychedelic Palliative Care by Novamind, a first of its kind program to support the mental health of patients and families struggling with serious illness. “We anticipate that this progress will accelerate the approval process for us to become a research site for additional psychedelic clinical studies in the future.”

How COVID-19 Opened the Door to a New Era in Psychedelic Medicine

Time magazine writes how the burnout, trauma and stress caused by the COVID-19 pandemic is opening the door to accelerated psychedelic research. “It’s no coincidence that psychedelics are entering the conversation at the moment we most sorely need new ideas in mental health care. The world is experiencing mass trauma from COVID-19.” It’s especially true with frontline workers. The stats are alarming. The need has never been more apparent. It’s why we launched our Frontline Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy treatment program earlier this year. We’re providing healthcare workers with critical mental healthcare. You can learn more about the program here.

Will Australia Take a Lead in Psychedelic Therapy?

Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia is currently evaluating a proposal to reschedule two prominent psychedelics into a less restrictive classification. Mind Medicine Australia submitted the proposal to the government and “has the support of world leading experts in psychedelic research.” 
Novamind Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Reid Robison, will be presenting at the Mind Medicine Australia summit in November. Get your tickets here.

The New Cannabis?

Could psychedelics follow the same path of cannabis toward legalization and regulation for medical purposes? It’s a question Luis Millán asks for National Magazine. “Despite the legal uncertainty, business is hopeful. Some stock market speculators believe psychedelics will follow in the footsteps of the cannabis industry and become the next billion-dollar business.”
