VIDEO – ThreeD Capital $IDK $IDKFF NAV Climbs To $1.27 But Much More Expected To Come As “Teenage” and “Cub” Investments In The Portfolio Are Just Starting To Hunt $IP $IPNFF $MTRX $RACMF $PKK.ca $PKKFF $GMBL

IDK-square-for-blog

A lion pride grows by continually nurturing new blood.  While new cubs are born every year and are nurtured for growth, the teenagers are groomed to prepare to take over leadership from the old guard. 

In the case of ThreeD Capital (IDK:CSE / IDKFF:OTCQB), the company’s portfolio might be too young for any old guards just yet …. but teenagers like Esports Entertainment Group (NASDAQ), Peak Fintech Group (Imminent NASDAQ), Loop Insights (Global Partnerships) and ImagineAR (Global Partnerships) are maturing very nicely with their long leadership years still ahead of them according to Chairman Sheldon Inwentash. 

ThreeD Capital prides (pardon the pun) itself on discovering great companies before everyone else … and it casts a wide net to find the best of the best ranging from completely disruptive companies to junior resources and mining companies .  

More importantly, Inwentash’s championship investment style has netted billion dollar exits in the past simply because he isn’t afraid to invest and be patient for markets to catch up to his great early ideas.  Case in point, he points out how he was early into Esports Entertainment Group on the OTC, with the market only now catching up to it as an $18 NASDAQ stock …. that is set to go much higher in the next 2 -3 years. 

As such, it’s like and ETF for ground floor investments that small cap investors would either be unable to find (private) or unable to participate in (early round accredited investors) 

More than just lip service, his last company commanded a market cap north of $1 Billion at its peak and now he’s looking to recreate the same success with IDK – only faster given the great and fast growing technology companies he is investing in. 

Will he do it?  He’s off to a good start so far by quietly making investments over the past couple of years that are now starting to pay off, as seen by his recently reported NAV (Net Asset Value) of $1.27.   

But that NAV is just scratching the surface when you consider the fact his teens have just barely started their hunting phase and he’s adding new cubs just about every week as of late. 

Watch this great interview … because when the king of the jungle roars, every small cap investor should be listening.

The PHAZER Universe is Coming to Liquid Avatar $LQID with Integrated Multi-Media, Avatars and #AR-Enhanced, Cinematic Collector #NFTs $IP $IPNFF $MOS.ca $MOGO.ca $CTZ.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:17 AM on Monday, March 22nd, 2021
  • Oasis Digital Studios is excited to announce that they have partnered with Apex Comics Group, founded by comic book industry veteran, Mariano Nicieza, to bring the PHAZER Universe and other published characters to Liquid Avatar as custom digital icons, integrated multi-media, Augmented Reality items and cinematic, AR enhanced Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs).
  • A sneak peek of the program will be made virtually on March 26th and 27th at Comic Con International’s WonderCon.

TORONTO, ON and ERIE, PA and NEW YORK, NY / March 22, 2021 / Liquid Avatar Technologies Inc. (CSE:LQID)(OTC PINK:TRWRF)(FRA:4T51) Liquid Avatar Technologies, a global blockchain, digital identity and fintech solutions company together with ImagineAR Inc. (CSE:IP/OTC:IPNFF), an Augmented Reality platform company, reports that Oasis Digital Studios (“Oasis”) is excited to announce that they have partnered with Apex Comics Group, founded by comic book industry veteran, Mariano Nicieza, to bring the PHAZER Universe and other published characters to Liquid Avatar as custom digital icons, integrated multi-media, Augmented Reality items and cinematic, AR enhanced Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). A sneak peek of the program will be made virtually on March 26th and 27th at Comic Con International’s WonderCon.

Bringing images to life, Oasis is developing NFTs with cinematic quality, motion, sound, and special effects that make them true collectibles. Each Oasis Cinematic and AR Enhanced NFT will come complete with an Augmented Reality Experience through Liquid Avatar providing users the ability to showcase their NFTs in the virtual and real world. A cinematic trailer is available at the Oasis website – www.oasisdigitalstudios.com.

The integrated campaign, expected to launch in early Spring, will feature a series of limited-edition collector cinematic and AR enhanced NFTs, Liquid Avatar digital icons available in the Liquid Avatar Marketplace, and a fully immersive cinematic and 3D global Augmented Reality scavenger hunt powered by ImagineAR. A pre-sale waiting list is available for prospective purchasers and collectors at the Oasis website – www.oasisdigitalstudios.com.

“It’s truly exciting and extremely gratifying to be partnered with Liquid Avatar and Oasis! The Apex Comics Group characters have come to life in prose-novels, comic books, trading cards and posters; Avatars, Augmented Reality, and cinematic NFTs will propel these characters to brand new levels!” stated Mariano Nicieza, Apex Comics Group President and creator of Phazer Universe.

Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT) are digital assets that represent a wide range of unique tangible and intangible items, from art, comic books and collectible sports cards to virtual real estate and even digital sneakers. One of the main benefits of owning a digital collectible versus a physical collectible like a rookie card or a rare-minted coin is that each NFT contains distinguishing information that makes it both distinct from any other NFT and easily verifiable. This makes the creation and circulation of fake collectibles pointless because each item can be traced back to the original issuer.

ABOUT THE PHAZER UNIVERSE

This sci-fi action-adventure opus centers around Project: P.H.A.Z.E.R., a highly classified military project, created to study Alpha-Zachyon, a new type of energy and develop defenses against extraterrestrial invasion. Scientist Mark Moreno, head of the project, becomes the victim of a sabotaged experiment that sends him uncontrollably shifting through the time-stream where his altered molecular structure manifests different paranormal powers in every time-period he lands in. Hunted by a shape-shifting alien his daily existence is a fight for survival as he struggles to find a cure and return to the world he’s left behind.

Along the way, he makes unlikely alliances with Blackray, a hybrid humanoid who can breathe underwater, Agent Three Zero, a special-forces operative with a unique armored suit that allows her to detect camouflaged extraterrestrial beings, and the Cosmic Raiders, a quartet of super-powered women.

The Blue Sultan, an insane terrorist with a hidden past is also pursuing the secrets of Alpha-Zachyon energy to further his own ambitions for world domination. His mad schemes threaten to destroy the Earth.

Mark Moreno’s chase through countless time-periods culminates back on his present Earth with a final battle on the frozen wasteland of Antarctica, and the discovery of an ultimate, ancient weapon that could spell the end of mankind.

This is an exciting time for digital collectibles, avatars, digital identity augmented reality and NFTs,” said David Lucatch, CEO “Oasis, together with Liquid Avatar and ImagineAR are spearheading the drive towards immersive experiences integrated with Blockchain technologies.”

The Oasis AR Enhanced NFT experience will be available exclusively through the Liquid Avatar Mobile App, which features the ability to create digital icons that allow users to manage, control and create value from their biometrically verified digital identity, and is available in the Google Play and Apple App Store.

If you haven’t heard of KWESST Micro Systems (KWE:TSXV) you’re not alone because the Company just listed for trading a couple of months ago – and it is probably the coolest new listing of 2020 if you love high-tech, covert defense systems that we only get to see in Tom Cruise movies.

KWESST is a leader in “soldier systems” which are technologies that increase the capabilities of soldiers,  Let’s be clear right off the start, KWESST doesn’t sell weaponry.  Rather, it sells technologies that make a big difference to the safety and effectiveness of soldiers.

For example, out in a field of combat, soldiers emit Electro Magnetic (EM) signatures that make them detectable by enemy combatants.  KWESST has a battlefield decoy system that creates multiple false phantom signatures to spoof adversaries.  This picture is worth 1,000 words.

Or perhaps the “TASCS” – Tactical Awareness and Situational Control System

An App and snap-on weapon adaptor that enables real-time streaming of situational awareness data of any kind from any source, including drones, direct to smart display devices and operational assets, for a common operating picture and networked engagement.

The company successfully achieved an important milestone under the contract announced in December 2020 for a key military customer.

This milestone entailed the integration of the Company’s TASCS IFM (Integrated Fires Module) for the 81mm Mortar Fire Control System into the Android Tactical Assault Kit (ATAK), the preeminent battlefield management system for NATO countries . As a result, the Company will now proceed to the next phase of the contract, involving live-fire trials at various U.S. military bases.

A world-first in digitizing the function of a mortar team, from the identification of the target to the aiming of the mortar.

We could go on about many other such technologies created by KWESST but this is AGORACOM after all and we want to get down to the business of KWESST, the highlights of which are as follows: 

  • A developer of next-generation systems for forces around the world, including those of NATO and its allies
  • A leadership team whose experience spans decades and hundreds of millions of dollars in military and homeland security contracts
  • A sales and distribution network of agents that spans the globe
  • Partnerships with globally recognized OEM’s, including Samsung
  • Received a follow-on order for $1.1 Million from a key US Military Customer. 

And last but not least, a secret weapon in its Executive Chairman David Luxton, whose companies under his leadership have generated over $1,000,000,000 (Yes, BILLION).

The soldier systems market is projected to hit $14.5 Billion by 2023 and, up until  now, small cap investors have never had a company to participate in this lucrative (and SUPER COOL) market.

Liquid Avatar Technologies (LQID: CSE) and ImagineAR (IP:CSE / IPNFF:OTCQB) are incredibly disruptive and on the cusp of unstoppable trends, which makes them both explosive but also so new that investors still need to wrap their minds around each of them, let alone both of them together.  The good news is that CEO’s from both companies (David Lucatch Liquid Avatar and Alen Paul Silverrstieen ImagineAR) have sat down with us to explain why their combination is the way all of us will be controlling and profiting from our online identities in the near future.

Before watching the video, here is a little about what you need to know about each company.

LIQUID AVATAR – Solves the major problem around our online identities and data. Through Liquid Avatar they provide each one of us with the power to manage and monetize our digital identity, which is an unstoppable trend as both a natural evolution of the web, as well as, legislation forcing big platforms to no longer share and profit from our personal online data.

IMAGINEAR – As the name implies, ImagineAR is an Augmented Reality Company that enables businesses to create their own mobile phone AR campaigns with no programming or technology experience.  AR is also an unstoppable trend – but don’t take our word for it.

Apple CEO Tim Cook 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 smart phone”

The AR market is expected to grow to $200 Billion by 2025 from just $3.5 billion in 2017. .

Now you know why the combination of these two companies is so powerful and well worth your while to watch, listen and learn about what they are going to do.  The future is coming, so you might as well see it coming first.
