THE GENESIS 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.  It’s already a $30B market BUT…

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.

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” … LQIDs Aftermath Islands

Metaverse is an early success…

As a result, Liquid Avatar Technologies has seen an earlier than anticipated rise in commercial activities, which generated preliminary gross revenue of approximately C$1,000,000, from October 1, 2021, through December 31, 2021.

Since then, the company has continued to make huge strides with the following:

○       Launched Mom Island in Celebration of International Women’s Day

○       Showcased 3rd Interactive Playable Demo for Meta Quest 2 Devices

○       Lethbridge College Teams Up with Liquid Avatar Technologies to Create a Virtual Campus in the Metaverse

○       Signed Global Strategic Partnership with GDA Capital

○       Launched Submarines Supporting Metaverse’s Inter-Island Transport

○       Joined the Next Top Metaverse Build Competition

But wait, that’s not all…

Today the company announced the launch of  First-Ever Payment Card and Loyalty Program for the Metaverse. The LQID card is a physical prepaid debit card powered by OptimizeFT’s Engage360 payment card and digital banking solutions platform, available in the United States. The card can earn the holder cashback by shopping at Liquidshopz and earn points by participating in Aftermath Islands Metaverse activities.

What did Michael Konikoff, Chief Revenue Officer, Liquid Avatar Technologies have to say?

“We’re excited to offer the very first payment card for the Metaverse, supporting individuals and entities as they engage in virtual activities. In addition to retail and online payment opportunities, users of the LQID card will be able to experience exciting Virtual Land and NFT opportunities at Aftermath Islands and other immersive experiences.

VIDEO – Liquid Avatar Metaverse Sales Hit $1,000,000 In Preliminary Gross Revenue – Setting Up Big 2022 and Potential Token Offering

The genesis of Liquid Avatar Technologies is a global blockchain & personal identity solutions company specializing in empowering individuals to manage, control and generate value from their biometrically-verified digital Identity, which also provides businesses and governments the ability to easily integrate digital wallets and digital identity solutions through its Liquid Avatar platform (www.liquidavatar.com

And if the story ended there, that would be more than enough to build a company on.

However, as the digital universe has continued to expand, there is an ever-increasing need to verify online identity as governments and enterprises around the world prepare for the shift.  For example:

  • In early 2021 Google announced a major shift away from precision-targeting of ads based on everything you do on the internet
  • The Ontario Government released its Digital Strategy, with key themes including the launch of Digital ID credentials. 

“Ontario is one of the first jurisdictions in North America to announce that it will issue and enable digital credentials – and it has been a great experience working with the government on this both directly and through our role in membership organizations like the Trust Over IP Foundation,

As a result, the Liquid Avatar Verifiable Credentials Ecosystem (LAVCE) is being built to support all participants in a digital credential ecosystem.  Almost immediately, Liquid Avatar announced a big win here by partnering with the Ontario Convenience Stores Association (OCSA) To Provide Digital Age-Verification Solutions To Over 8,000 Stores.

Again, if the story ended there, Liquid Avatar would have the makings of a potentially massive tech company.

But with the rise of NFTs and the Metaverse, both of which strongly rely on digital identity, the Company continued to expand its core digital identity technology into these areas and registered major successes, including $1,000,000 in Preliminary Gross Revenues for its Aftermath Islands Metaverse.

In the Company’s Q4 Recap and Business Update CEO David Lucatch stated: 

“Our in-market businesses continued to perform above expectations for Q4, and we remain optimistic, while cautious, as these are still early days in the Company’s transformation to an active revenue organization. We have started to witness online acceptance of digital identity programs, which are at the core of all our solutions, and both avatar and metaverse activities are gaining traction, creating opportunities for early revenue there, as the industry embraces the future of Web 3.0. Our goal is to continue to create value for all our stakeholders.”

If you believe in the future of Web3 (blockchain, crypto, tokens, NFTs and the Metaverse) and looking for a small cap company to help you participation in it, then look no further than Liquid Avatar.

BEYOND THE DECK – Blockchain Foundry SYSCOIN Market Cap Is $455 MILLION. 24 Hour Trading Volume $13M + … What Does Web 3 Know?

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 5:20 PM on Tuesday, December 21st, 2021

We all remember the crash of “blockchain” stocks a couple of years back, which was actually a crash of blockchain pretenders who used the term to build stock promotions, as opposed to building actual blockchains.  

Like the dot-com crash of 2000, which bankrupted “dot-com” companies but gave birth to the likes of Google, Amazon, Linkedin because they built actual utility and value, the same could be expected of the blockchain crash and its’ resurgence.  

Blockchain Foundry Is A Smallcap Blockchain 2.0 Company with Real Customers, Products, Revenues and A Web3 Market Cap Of $455,000,000 For It’s Syscoin

But Blockchain Foundry is only just getting started.  The Company is building a WEB3 ecosystem on top of its powerful Sycoin blockchain which is the 2nd most secure blockchain in the world next to Bitcoin.  That isn’t a typo and Web3 coin investors believe it given the fact it has traded over $13,000,000 in volume over the last 24 hours … and close to $25,000,000 in the 24 hours before that!

What do they know that small cap investors don’t know?  What to Web3 investors know that isn’t being reflected in the $BCFN stock price? The short answer is .. A Lot … but luckily we were able to tear away CEO Dan Wasyluk from his coding marathons to explain exactly what we are missing by going through the Company’s power point presentation.

If you’re a small cap investor looking for exposure to the Web3 world of blockchain, coins, tokens, NFTs and more then this $BCFN presentation is a must-watch.

Buckle Up for one hell of a great presentation!

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.

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

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 – Liquid Avatar $LQID Digital Identity Platform Goes Commercial With Age Verification Products For 8,000 Convenience Stores In Ontario

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 10:01 AM on Wednesday, October 6th, 2021

12 months ago investors couldn’t be blamed if they found it hard to grasp the genius and foresight of Liquid Avatar $LQID $LQAVF ….. the easiest way to describe the company was as a blockchain platform allowing people to manage & profit from their digital identity, which became a real need once global laws started being enacted to prevent the likes of Facebook from every abusing our private information again.

Moreover, the platform also provides both businesses and governments the ability to easily integrate digital wallets and digital identity solutions through its Liquid Avatar platform (www.liquidavatar.com).

It sounded great … and definitely sounded like something you could see starting to happen 3-4 years into the future … but then the signs started showing up that painted an accelerating picture that would put LQID at the forefront of digital identity.

1.  In March of this year, Google validated the $LQID business model with this stunning announcement:

 Google announces major shift away from precision-targeting of ads based on everything you do on the internet

  • Google believes these types of tracking methods don’t “meet rising consumer expectations for privacy, nor will they stand up to rapidly evolving regulatory restrictions, and therefore aren’t a sustainable long term investment.”
  • Google is experimenting with tools in its Privacy Sandbox that are designed to allow advertising to continue to work on the web but in a less privacy-encroaching way.
  • “Keeping the internet open and accessible for everyone requires all of us to do more to protect privacy — and that means an end to not only third-party cookies, but also any technology used for tracking individual people as they browse the web,” David Temkin, Google’s director of product management for ads privacy and trust,

 What is the potential outcome of this major shift by Google?

  “Google’s decision could upend the ad industry, which has relied on these types of tracking tools”  

With this news, the data privacy and monetization game is underway and LQID sitting in a great position within the industry and the dominant position within the small cap world.  

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL


2.  In May of this year, The Ontario government released its digital identity strategy outlining ways in which it plans to harness the potential of the digital economy and better utilize data. Included in the plan are tangible commitments.

Then came the news all Liquid Avatar investors were waiting for: 

Ontario Releases Technology and Standards for Digital Identity which includes: 

  • the creation of a new data authority; 
  • the introduction of a new government-issued digital ID that lets people prove who they are both online and in person.

These 2 announcements out of Google and the Ontario Government officially put both business and government in the digital identity and credentials game.  There is no looking back.

ENTER LIQUID AVATAR – WORKING WITH ONTARIO GOVERNMENT

Enter $LQID whose Liquid Avatar Verifiable Credentials Ecosystem (LAVCE) is being built to support all participants in a digital credential ecosystem, including the Holder, Issuer and Verifier, using state-of-the-art blockchain and open standards technologies .  More than just a good idea, $LQID issued a press release announcing the following:

“Ontario is one of the first jurisdictions in North America to announce that it will issue and enable digital credentials – and it has been a great experience working with the government on this both directly and through our role in membership organizations like the Trust Over IP Foundation”

AND

“Liquid Avatar Technologies has been a part of the ongoing consultations around the province’s plan to introduce a digital identification credential by the end of 2021”

ENTER LIQUID AVATAR – OUT OF DEVELOPMENT AND INTO COMMERCIALIZATION WITH 8,000 CONVENIENCE STORES

This morning $LQID released major news on the commercialization side whose title speaks for itself:

Liquid Avatar Partners With Ontario Convenience Stores Association To Provide Digital Age Verification To 8,000 Stores

According to CEO Lucatch, this announcement represents a major inflection point as it signals a shift from development to commercialization, with many more potential deals in discussion.

LQID IS THE LEADING SMALL CAP COMPANY IN MASSIVE PARADIGM SHIFT TOWARD DIGITAL IDENTITY, PRIVACY AND MONETIZATION

Make no mistake about it.  This is a simply massive paradigm shift and $LQID isn’t going to tackle this on its own.  The Company is a voting and steering committee member of the Trust over IP Foundation, founding and steering committee member of Cardea, a Linux Foundation Public Health project, member of the Good Health Pass collaborative, ID2020, DIACC, The Linux Foundation and a founding member of the Lumedic Exchange.

Suddenly it is getting easy to see the genius of Liquid Avatar.

1.  Google validated the $LQID business model with this stunning announcement at the beginning of March:

 Google announces major shift away from precision-targeting of ads based on everything you do on the internet

THEN CAME COVID-19 TEST AND VACCINATION CREDENTIALS 

Both of these happened BEFORE governments around the world started announcing “Vaccine Passports” that would require people to prove their vaccinations prior to accessing some of the biggest parts of society.  But with the Quebec system already getting hacked before it started, the government initiatives are easier said than done.
