Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:38 AM on Thursday, April 1st, 2021

Company joins collaboration with industry leaders to help define recommendations for verification of health status to safely restore international travel and restart the global economy.

  • Announced that it has joined the Good Health Pass Collaborative.
  • A project of ID2020, the Good Health Pass Collaborative is an open, inclusive, cross-sector initiative formed to create a blueprint for interoperable digital health pass systems that offer a path to restoring global travel and restarting the global economy.

TORONTO, ON / April 1, 2021 / Liquid Avatar Technologies Inc. (CSE:LQID)(OTC PINK:TRWRF)(FRA:4T51) a global blockchain, digital identity and fintech solutions company and a steering committee member of the Trust Over IP Foundation (ToIP), an independent project for building global digital trust infrastructure hosted by the Linux Foundation, as well as founding member of the Lumedic Exchange, is pleased to announce that it has joined the Good Health Pass Collaborative. A project of ID2020, the Good Health Pass Collaborative is an open, inclusive, cross-sector initiative formed to create a blueprint for interoperable digital health pass systems that offer a path to restoring global travel and restarting the global economy.

In the face of the global COVID-19 pandemic, governments have limited most individual’s ability to work, travel and engage in previously normal everyday activities. As vaccines become more pervasive, and people begin the process of returning to public life, individuals are in need of a way to safely and privately prove that they have tested negative and/or have been vaccinated against the virus.

The Good Health Pass standards will enable airlines, airports, hospitality industries, international customs officials, and others to process visitors easily without requiring additional unnecessary steps mandated by proprietary systems. With uniform standards for travel in place, travelers won’t be confused about which credential they need for each venue and they’ll be in full control of their own personal data. This will give them peace of mind, knowing that access to their private health information is protected and they are able to travel more freely.

“We’re excited to join other industry leaders to provide a highly trusted verifiable credential that will support the global recovery,” said RJ Reiser, Chief Business Development Officer – Liquid Avatar. “By leveraging existing Open Standards, we can support user privacy concerns and empower them with the ability to share what they want, when they want and with whom they want.”

Liquid Avatar has joined the Good Health Pass Collaborative and other organizations so that the Company remains at the forefront of the development of technology and institutional initiatives that will provide our users with the ability to manage, control and benefit from having verifiable credentials that support digital identity programs.

Liquid Avatar is well underway with its building of its verifiable credentials ecosystem that will support this initiative and others by providing users with the ability to store and manage their online credentials and digital identity products.

Digital Media Veteran Ruth McCartney Brings Rock History To The Blockchain – Liquid Avatar $LQID – ImagineAR $IP.ca $IPNFF

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 2:55 PM on Thursday, March 25th, 2021

  • Digital assets stored on the blockchain can be endlessly copied, but legal and finite ownership of original digital artwork, music and more is becoming the domain of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), now enjoying their moment in the cyber-sun as the hot cryptocurrency investment du jour.

By PYMNTS

Enter ex-Beatle and iconoclast, the late John Lennon. What’s the connection? It’s famed rock music photographer and jewelry designer May Pang who, as the story goes, went from personal assistant to paramour of Lennon in 1973 during an 18-month breakup from his wife, Yoko Ono.

In the annals of rock star indulgence, it’s known as Lennon’s infamous “Lost Weekend” in Los Angeles (again, lasting nearly two years) during which punches flew, substances were abused, public scenes ensued in L.A. watering holes, and late songwriter Harry Nilsson (“Everybody’s Talkin’ at Me” and “Me and My Arrow”) reportedly saved Lennon from a bad psychological slide.

Pang chronicled the entire affair (no pun intended) with her camera, capturing deeply personal moments of what turned out to be some of Lennon’s last years on earth. The Beatles co-founder was murdered outside of his New York City apartment building in December 1980.

Speaking with PYMNTS, Pang and Ruth McCartney, stepsister to Beatles co-founder Sir Paul, spoke of their partnership bringing a slice of Lennon history back to life.

Together with global blockchain solutions firm Liquid Avatar Technologies, augmented reality (AR) platform ImagineAR, Oasis Digital Studios and McCartney Multimedia, the parties are “bringing [Pang’s] personal and exclusive collection of ‘John Lennon’s Lost Weekend’ photographs featuring her intimate 18 months with the rock ‘n’ roll icon to the Non-Fungible Token (NFT) collector market through Oasis Digital Studios,” per a statement.

Along with the sound of tens of millions of Lennon fans fainting at the prospect of owning these original sounds and images is the scramble for digital wallets as bidding begins.

Pang Partners With Sir Paul McCartney’s Digital-Savvy Stepsister On NFT Line

Pang knew the late icon better than most, telling PYMNTS, “John Lennon loved the idea of instant. So now … you have your [digital] camera and you go, ‘I don’t like that photo, [delete it] put the next one in,’ — he would love that more than anything else.” She added, “That’s where my book [title comes from], ‘Instamatic Karma.’ [It’s] a play on his song title.”

Perhaps a ripping Beatles cover song — “Money (That’s What I Want)” — would be the more appropriate citation when speaking about NFTs. Trade in NFTs began heating up earlier this year as everyone from Lindsay Lohan to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was suddenly auctioning off their most famous digital assets, like Dorsey’s first-ever tweet.

For her part, McCartney and her Oasis Digital Studios are rocking her world-class Rolodex to bring digital ownership of even more amazing moments in pop culture to the crypto crowd.

“We’re not just taking photographs … and selling them as JPEGs,” McCartney said. “There is a whole multimedia component, in some cases augmented reality, in some cases cinematics. We’re turning these iconic photographs and paintings and pieces of pop culture … [into digital] audio and visual [NFTs].”

She added, “I think art is just following that natural progression of … drawings on cave walls to paintings in the Sistine Chapel, to something hanging on the wall in a collector’s place or the Louvre. We all live in our phones … so why wouldn’t we collect art digitally, especially if it’s protected in the blockchain?”

McCartney said she likes to call NFTs “non-forgeable tokens” to illustrate their unique digital attributes.

“I think it’s a lot more attractive because … how many great old masters have been counterfeited and ripped off? Well, with this medium, you can’t do it. So, it guarantees the owner exclusivity, and it guarantees the artist protection for their work.”

Among her next moves in the space will be foodie NFTs from the world’s top chefs, she said.

“Money Don’t Get Everything, It’s True…”

Pang said she views the new crypto craze through an artist’s lens, telling PYMNTS that after discussing NFTs with McCartney, she realized the creative opportunities afforded by the form.

Noting that with NFTs “I could take my photographs and put in events” and other multimedia elements, Pang compared the NFT phenomenon to The Beatles’ groundbreaking Sgt. Pepper’s album, still hailed as a technological breakthrough for the creation of art in the 1960s.

Harking back to her comment about Lennon’s love of all things instant, Pang said, “He would be deep in the thick of this, too,” meaning the creation of NFTs. For the man credited with the first (and only) political protest to take place in a hotel suite, Pang’s call seems on the money.

While “John Lennon’s Lost Weekend” NFT is a collection of images and more, when asked about favorite items in the collection, Pang’s tone lightened to a laugh as she recalled Lennon’s personal favorite image, now part of the NFT, of himself wearing an Aran sweater.

“That was one of his favorites,” Pang told PYMNTS, noting that Lennon said, “‘I like the way I look.’ He didn’t like a lot of photographs that were out there [of] him.”

Getting the vote for most dramatic NFT image in the collection: Lennon signing the papers legally dissolving The Beatles, consigning them off to the ages — and now, the blockchain.

Now let’s Rock’n’Roll!” commented May Pang , Artist

In September 1973 , while separated from 2 nd wife Yoko, May Pang and John Lennon left New York for Los Angeles to promote Mind Games and began an 18-month relationship, which John affectionately and publicly referred to this period of his life as his “Lost Weekend”.

While there, Lennon was inspired to embark on two recording projects: to make an album of the old rock ‘n’ roll songs that inspired him to become a musician.  In October 1973 , Lennon collaborated with Phil Spector to record the oldies album, Rock ‘n’ Roll, which Lennon would ultimately complete with the same musicians he used on Walls and Bridges .

Pang also arranged for Julian Lennon to visit his father for the first time in almost three years and Julian began to see his father more regularly. Lennon bought Julian a Gibson Les Paul guitar and a drum machine for Christmas in 1973 and encouraged Julian’s interest in music by showing him some chords.

In March 1974 , Lennon began producing Harry Nilsson’s Pussy Cats album, thus named to counter the “bad boy” image the pair had earned in the media at Los Angeles famed music club, The Troubadour. At that time, Lennon thought it would be a good idea for the musicians to live under one roof. to ensure they would get to the studio on time, so Nilsson rented a beach house in Santa Monica , for himself, May, Lennon, Klaus Voormann, Ringo Starr , and Keith Moon to live in.

During this period, Pang encouraged Lennon to reach out to family and friends. He and Paul McCartney mended fences and played together for the first and only time after the breakup of the Beatles, which became the bootleg album A Toot and a Snore in ’74 .

In May 1974 , Lennon and Pang returned to live in Manhattan.  While visiting Mick Jagger at Andy Warhol’s compound in Montauk, New York , Lennon, and Pang saw a Scottish-style cottage for sale close to the Montauk Point Lighthouse.  Lennon asked a real estate broker to put in an offer for it in January 1975.  In the same month, Lennon and Pang were also planning on visiting Paul and Linda McCartney in New Orleans , where Wings were recording the Venus and Mars album, but Lennon reconciled with Yoko in February, just before the planned visit, thus ending the relationship with Pang.

Pang received an RIAA gold record award for her work on Walls and Bridges and continued her work as production coordinator of Lennon’s Rock ‘n’ Roll album, where she was credited as “Mother Superior”.  Pang also worked on albums by Nilsson, Starr, Elton John , and David Bowie .

“I have known May for many years and always been an admirer of her spirit and energy, not to mention her eye for taking a great photograph. McCartney Multimedia is honoured to be representing this historically significant art in the new digital universe,” said Ruth McCartney , Digital Diva, and founder of McCartney Multimedia.
