Tradecurve Markets (TCRV)’s Soaring 150% Rally Offers Respite for Stacks (STX) and Litecoin (LTC) Holders

Table of Content

In a notable surge, Tradecurve Markets has recently experienced a soaring 150% rally, providing some much-needed relief for Stacks (STX) and Litecoin (LTC) holders amidst a challenging market landscape. This bullish rally is particularly remarkable considering that TradecurveMarkets is currently in its presale phase, suggesting strong early investor confidence in TCRV’s potential as a future dominant player in the blockchain space.

Tradecurve Markets (TCRV): One-Stop-Shop for All Assets

Tradecurve Markets is making a splash with its revolutionary trading platform that’s set to redefine the conventional trading landscape. 150% gains have already been realized by early investors, and the potential for further upside is looking strong.

This unified portal of Tradecurve Markets offers traders the ability to seamlessly navigate through diverse assets, including forex, commodities, stocks, and cryptocurrencies. This means no more tedious switching between multiple trading accounts–all of your investments are now in one place!

The standout feature of Tradecurve Markets is its dedication to user privacy. Steering clear of the often daunting KYC/AML procedures ensures that anyone with a DeFi wallet and sufficient cryptocurrency can delve into global trading without the usual hindrances.

But Tradecurve Markets’ prowess extends beyond streamlined access and a vast asset range. The platform is adorned with state-of-the-art trading tools, integrating elements such as collaborative trading, AI-enhanced trade automation, staking opportunities for passive revenue, and a staggering leverage potential of up to 500:1.

The trading community has responded to Tradecurve Markets’ offerings with incredible enthusiasm. An astounding 40 million tokens were quickly acquired during the initial days of its Phase 5 sale. As it prepares to enter major exchanges, there is a growing sentiment that its token price, currently at $0.025, has the potential to skyrocket to $1.00.

As industry pundits cast their gaze on Tradecurve Markets, the platform’s trajectory seems steep. It not only promises to revolutionize trading protocols but also offers traders the opportunity for substantial returns, all the while ensuring security and preserving anonymity.

Stacks (STX): An Alarming 87.47% Price Drop

Stacks, which once sought to invigorate Bitcoin’s potential by elevating it from just being digital gold to a bastion of boundless innovation, rode a dizzying 3,000% price hike during its 2020 bull phase.

However, the subsequent crypto downturn showed no mercy to Stacks. Amid a sea of pervasive bearish tendencies, Stacks has witnessed a staggering decline of 87.47% to today’s price of $45.18. The next strong support sits at the $0.20 level.

Throwing a wrench into Stacks’ trajectory is the rise of Bitcoin Ordinals. This novel technology sidesteps the need for intermediaries like Stacks to drive innovation on the Bitcoin platform, potentially undermining Stacks’ distinctive appeal.

On the flip side, Tradecurve Markets’ blended exchange approach appears to be carving a niche for itself. While Stacks battles to redefine its utility in the market, Tradecurve Markets’ early success offers a much-needed reprieve to Stacks holders who are sitting on losses.

Litecoin (LTC): The Fall Below $100 and Tradecurve Markets (TCRV) Allure

Litecoin, a long-standing and highly reputable digital currency, has experienced a period of relative inactivity in recent times. Following a remarkable 100% surge at the beginning of 2023, it appears that the bullish momentum of Litecoin has subsided.

The recent surge in price can be attributed to the heightened anticipation surrounding Litecoin’s halving event. Historically, this event has been closely associated with bullish uptrends and record-breaking prices.

Yet, the euphoria was short-lived. Not long after the halving, Litecoin’s value slipped below the crucial $100 threshold, sparking renewed discussions about its long-term viability in the market.

The current crypto arena is teeming with new entrants like Tradecurve Markets, which aren’t just presenting novel concepts but also delivering tangible advantages to users. Against this backdrop, Litecoin holders who bought during the halving hype are jumping on the TradecurveMarkets bandwagon as an opportunity to recoup some of their losses.

Analysts note that the recent 20% weekly decline underscores Litecoin’s challenge in holding onto its gains. While rumors suggest Litecoin might stabilize around the $50 level, its steadiness at that price remains a subject of speculation.

Caesars Entertainment Paid Millions to Hackers in Attack

(Bloomberg) — Caesars Entertainment Inc. paid tens of millions of dollars to hackers who broke into the company’s systems in recent weeks and threatened to release the company’s data, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Most Read from Bloomberg

Caesars is expected to disclose the cyberattack in a regulatory filing imminently, the people said. The disclosure of the alleged Caesars breach comes as another Las Vegas entertainment giant, MGM Resorts International, announced that it was hacked earlier this week.

Caesars didn’t respond to requests for comment. The company’s shares dropped 2.7% Wednesday to $52.35.

The group behind the attack is known as Scattered Spider or UNC 3944, according to the people. Its members are skilled at social engineering in order to gain access to large corporate networks, according to cybersecurity experts. In the case of Caesars, the hackers first breached an outside IT vendor before gaining access to the company’s network, according to the people.

The hackers began targeting Caesars as early as Aug. 27, according to one of the people.

Members of the hacking group are believed to be young adults, some as young as 19 years old, residing in the US and the UK, according to a person who has investigated multiple hacks by the group.

Hacking gangs typically ask to be paid in cryptocurrency if they demand a ransom. Some attacks deploy ransomware that locks up computer files, and the hackers then provide a decryption key if the victim pays. More recently, however, hacking gangs have stolen data from companies and then demanded payment, threatening to publish the information unless they are paid.

Al Gore Calls Out the Bankers ‘Profiting Hugely’ From Big Oil

The climate crisis is ‘a fossil fuel crisis,’ according to the former US vice president.

Article content

(Bloomberg) — Al Gore, the former US vice president turned climate crusader, says Big Oil and the banks backing it still have huge financial incentives to stick with fossil fuels, even though their decision to do so is the leading cause of the climate crisis.

Bankers “are profiting hugely” from their role as lenders and advisers to fossil fuel companies, Gore said in an interview ahead of Climate Week, the annual gathering in New York of business and government leaders that occurs in conjunction with the UN General Assembly. Just as it’s “a bit unrealistic to expect fossil fuel companies to solve this crisis for us when they’re incentivized to do otherwise,” the business case for banks is the same, he said.

But the climate crisis is “a fossil fuel crisis” and that means the world needs to find a way to slash greenhouse gas emissions without assuming the oil industry will help, Gore said. 

The verdict comes as energy companies double down on their fossil fuel businesses and scale back ambitions for renewables, with Shell Plc standing out as the latest example. In June, the company said it will devote an ever larger chunk of annual spending to oil and gas, a strategy that’s been dubbed “catastrophic” by climate activists but that coincided with a 10% bump in its share price.

And oil analysts are already suggesting that this week’s departure of BP Plc Chief Executive Officer Bernard Looney, who had stood out among peers for his efforts to push the company toward a greener strategy, will be welcomed by BP investors.

The development suggests that Big Oil—which has repeatedly been accused of failing to walk its transition talk—is now also losing interest in even talking the talk. Meanwhile, banks aren’t providing stakeholders with the information they need to assess their carbon footprints, according to a recent study.

BloombergNEF estimates that for the world to have a chance of achieving net zero emissions by mid-century, banks need to channel four times as much capital into renewable energy as they do into fossil fuels by the end of the decade. The latest estimate suggests that figure is closer to 0.8 to 1.

The banks financing oil “are earning big profits from continuing what they’ve done for so long,” Gore said. “And yet they know they have to change.”

Executives from the world’s biggest banks and oil producers are among stakeholders heading to this year’s COP28 climate summit, which will be hosted by the United Arab Emirates and be presided over by Sultan Al Jaber, the CEO of state-backed Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. 

The setup has drawn fury from climate activists who point to Adnoc’s goal of ratcheting up oil and gas extraction. The company, which is the UAE’s biggest oil producer, claims it can raise production and cut emissions at the same time by investing in carbon capture technology that’s being developed.

Gore said putting an oil executive from a petrostate in charge of climate talks represents a “dubious proposition, at best.”

Still, Gore was keen to underline that he thinks there are actually a few bright spots in the fight against global heating. The 75-year-old pointed to the findings in a report published by the firm he chairs, Generation Investment Management, which indicates that global emissions from electrical grids will soon “peak and begin to fall.”

The report also says the annual flow of investment funds into clean energy is now 70% larger than the flow into fossil fuels.

“We don’t have time for climate despair,” Gore said. “The antidote to despair is action, and the world is now taking action.”

Examples of that include the Biden administration’s landmark climate bill, known as the Inflation Reduction Act, according to Gore. “We’ve been understating the impact” of the IRA, he said. That’s on top of huge investments in green technology taking place in Europe and China.

China’s role in the energy transition is “paradoxical,” Generation said in its report. The country is spending more on clean energy than any other nation, even as it builds more coal-burning power plants than anyone else, it said.

But when it comes to green spending, China tends to “under-promise and over-deliver,” Gore said.

India is catching up too.

“If you ask what percentage of their new electricity generation was solar and wind last year, most people would be surprised to hear the answer is 93%,” Gore said. “It’s quite a dramatic change there.”

New governments in Australia and Brazil also have led climate advocates to become more hopeful, Gore said.

“We need to do much more,” but “the progress is quite impressive and encouraging,” he said.

Levelling up agenda has ‘stalled’ under Sunak, says think-tank

Receive free UK regional policy updates

Rishi Sunak has failed to show leadership on the government’s flagship “levelling up” policy designed to close the UK’s regional economic divides, according to the Institute for Government.

The think-tank, in a report published on Thursday, said that while there had been “some promising steps”, the prime minister’s failure to prioritise implementation of the policy meant it had “lost momentum” since last summer.

It also called on the Labour party, which is a long way ahead of the ruling Conservatives in the opinion polls, to clarify its version of the policy ahead of a general election expected next year.

Levelling up was a political pledge by former Conservative leader Boris Johnson in the 2019 general election campaign, which helped his party secure a landslide victory by winning traditionally Labour-held seats in the north of England and the midlands.

The policy was fleshed out into a white paper by levelling up secretary Michael Gove in February 2022, which identified 12 “missions” aimed at closing chronic regional inequalities by tackling areas such as productivity, income and life expectancy.

Gove’s white paper was a “genuine” attempt to succeed where previous government attempts dating back to the 1990s had failed, the IfG said. But “progress on levelling up has been undermined by the reduced momentum and political drive from the centre since July 2022”, after Johnson stepped down as prime minister, it added. 

Both Sunak and his predecessor Liz Truss had “deprioritised” levelling up and “the agenda has stalled,” the report warned. It said the status of a cabinet committee, chaired by Gove, to drive the agenda through Whitehall had been “downgraded”, leaving it unable to make decisions. 

Those interviewed for the report said Gove’s department had struggled to co-ordinate the agenda, which had “not been a priority for other departments” since Sunak entered Downing Street.

The IfG also looked ahead to a potential Labour government, noting that one of its mission statements, known as “opportunities for all”, appeared to mirror the premise of levelling up. But it urged the party to define it “much more clearly”. 

For levelling up to be a success, any government needed to meet six key tests, including leadership from the top, which it said was critical. 

The others are clearly defined goals, co-ordination across Whitehall departments, better collaboration between central and local governments, institutional stability, and good quality local data. 

It said a central policy unit chaired by the prime minister would help “to capitalise on momentum early on”, while an independent oversight body with “teeth” was needed in order to hold the government to account on progress.

The government rejected the IfG’s findings as “untrue” and said it was “absolutely committed to this long-term programme of reform.”

It added: “Since October 2022, we have invested £2.6bn into projects across England, confirmed the locations of new freeports in Scotland and Wales and agreed landmark devolution deals for Greater Manchester and the West Midlands, marking a seismic shift in power, funding and responsibility to local areas.”

Labour said if it won the next election, it would aim “to boost productivity growth in every region and nation by the end of the parliament and we will measure our success against living standards and good jobs in every part of the country”.

FTX’s Sam Bankman-Fried Receives Shocking Response To Pretrial Release Request

With his trial scheduled for less than a month from now, Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF), founder and former CEO of the failed FTX crypto exchange, is scrambling to get as much out of the judge as possible. This time around, SBF is looking toward getting released ahead of his trial, but it seems the court is not ready to play ball with him.

FTX Founder Sam Bankman-Fried Wants Freedom Ahead Of Trial

In a filing that was presented to the court on September 8, Sam Bankman-Fried and his lawyers had asked the court to allow the FTX founder to be released ahead of his upcoming trial. The argument for why this should be approved revolved around the founder not having an adequate internet connection to properly review documents to help build his case.

This is not the first time that SBF’s lawyers will be trying to get him out after his bail was revoked for witness tampering. They had previously filed to have the FTX founder be in jail only on weekends, allowing him five days of the week to work with his lawyers and review documents connected to his trial.

However, just like the previous request to have the founder released five days a week, the court has refused to grant the defendant’s latest pretrial release request. In the September 12 filing, United States District Judge Lewis A. Kaplan said that the defendant “has not provided a sufficient basis for such a finding despite his relatively unsupported claims that he does not have unimpeded access to electronically stored discovery and other material (collectively, “ESI’) while detained and a variety of other arguments.”

The Judge points to the fact that Sam Bankman-Fried had ample time (seven and a half months) leading up to his bail being revoked during which he had access to most of the Electronically Stored Information (ESI). “Thus, whatever impediments defendant may have experienced in preparing for trial since August 11, he faced no such impediments during the roughly 7-1/2 months between his presentment to this Court and the revocation of his bail.”

Furthermore, Judge Kaplan explained that the time constraints being presented by the defendant were of his own making. According to him, the court had given them the October date they had asked for while also being open to considering a postponement of his trial date if requested.

The Judge also reminded the defendant that he was wrong in thinking that he had to review every single piece of discovery presented by the prosecutors. Rather, his “substantial team of extremely able retained lawyers” should be able to do so.

Last but not least, the Court points out that Sam Bankman-Fried’s team has not presented any specific materials that he has been unable to access while detained. “Generalities about millions of pages without connecting those dots is simply not persuasive,” the filing reads.

The FTX founder is still set to stand trial starting October 3 for the original eight (8) charges brought against him at the time of his extradition. This includes one charge of campaign finance and seven counts of fraud and money laundering, to which Sam Bankman-Fried pled not guilty in a court proceeding held on August 22.

From Shoe Seller To One Of Asia’s Richest

Who is Teresita Sy-Coson? She’s one of the children of the late Henry Sy Sr., who established SM Malls from scratch, building an empire in the Philippines and some parts of the world, literally from scratch.

And while Teresita’s story isn’t a rags-to-riches one (Henry Sy began with 10 centavos before becoming the Philippines’ riches man), she didn’t just wait for her dad to give her money, either!

Avid Banking Fan at 5, Shoe Seller at 8

Banking and finance are things that don’t usually interest kids, but Teresita was different.

Despite being just 5 years old, she already developed an interest in banking, thanks to her maternal grandfather who would bring her along when making bank transactions.

This would really come in handy in the future as she would lead the family’s bank business, BDO Unibank, from the 13th spot all the way to the top!

Jkgatdula, CC BY-SA 4.0, via Wikimedia Commons

But even before that happened, Teresita started out as a shoe seller at 8 years old.

Again, it wasn’t a rags-to-riches type of shoe-selling because her maternal grandfather and dad already owned small shoe stores at the time.

Yet it was amazing that at this tender age, Teresita was already interested in doing business.

According to an article in SCMP, customers would laugh when she tried to assist their children in choosing their shoes. Yet she persevered – and now co-owns the country’s largest chain of shopping malls with her siblings, something they inherited after their father’s passing.

Not Just an Heiress

What’s impressive about Teresita is that she isn’t just your typical spoiled rich heiress who squanders her family’s fortune just like in the movies.

Instead, she truly earned her way up the corporate ladder, with more than 15 years of being on the company’s board.

According to SM Prime, Teresita is currently the Advisor to the Board of Directors of SM Prime Holdings, Inc., a position that she has held since May 2008.

The company is one of Asia’s largest integrated property developers, which includes residences, commercial buildings, malls, leisure, and tourism developments.

She had also worked with the SM Group for over 20 years, learning and imparting her knowledge in various sectors of the company, from banking to mall development and retail merchandising.

She also holds board positions in several SM Group companies.

According to Forbes, Teresita has a net worth of $1.9 billion as of September 13, 2023.

The certification enables Adani Wind to start series production for global markets. 

“The certification under IEC System for Certification to Standards Relating to Equipment for Use in Renewable Energy Applications (IECRE) affirms that the Adani Wind’s 5.2 MW WTG meets highest quality and safety standards and provides international recognition to this turbine,” said the firm.

The type certification acknowledges Adani WTG’s conformity with the globally recognised IEC 61400 series standards and regulations for design, testing and manufacturing, the firm added. WindGuard carried out the testing of the WTG prototype, installed at Mundra, Gujarat. 

Speaking on the occasion, Vneet Jaain, Director, Adani New Industries Limited, said: “The type certificate reaffirms the quality and robustness of our 5.2 MW WTG platform built to bring down Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE). The certification is a boost to our endeavour of making India the global manufacturing hub for renewable equipment.

Opera Taps Celo to Launch Stablecoin Wallet for African Users

Celo’s inclusion with Opera’s MiniPay wallet augurs well for Africa’s expanding digital finance sector.

Opera, the well-known web services provider, has announced intentions to integrate a non-custodial stablecoin wallet built on the Celo blockchain into its mobile web browser.

This product, dubbed “MiniPay”, is intended to empower Opera’s enormous user base across the African continent by giving an easy and safe means of accessing and dealing with stablecoins. MiniPay seeks to make digital finance more accessible by allowing people to transfer and receive stablecoins using their existing mobile phone numbers.

Opera’s MiniPay to Transform the African Digital Finance Ecosystem

With over 100 million users in Africa, Opera is well-positioned to use its wide reach to deliver affordable and secure digital money solutions to the continent. The launch of MiniPay couldn’t come at a more critical time as users in these regions have expressed concerns about high fees, unreliable service uptimes, a lack of transparency in transaction progress, and limited access to mobile data.

These challenges have hampered financial inclusion and access to digital finance instruments, leaving many Africans on the periphery of the formal financial system. Consequently, MiniPay is designed to eliminate these obstacles by offering a range of innovative features.

Jørgen Arnesen, the Executive Vice President for mobile at Opera highlighted that MiniPay will operate with sub-cent fees, ensuring that users can transact without being burdened by high costs. Additionally, the wallet will allow users to onboard and back up their wallets using their Google credentials, simplifying the setup process.

Celo’s inclusion with Opera’s MiniPay wallet augurs well for Africa’s expanding digital finance sector. Celo, which has a sizable African user base, is well-known for its commitment to financial inclusion and accessibility. This collaboration expands MiniPay’s usability by allowing users to access a greater range of decentralized services and applications.

Recognizing the diversity of payment preferences in Africa, MiniPay has integrated with local payment methods, including Airtime and MPesa, as well as traditional bank transfers. This feature facilitates the easy conversion of stablecoins into local currencies, further promoting financial accessibility.

This new service, set to debut in the coming months, will first be introduced in Nigeria, with plans to expand its reach to other African countries, including Kenya, Ghana, and South Africa.

Opera’s Innovation Beyond MiniPay

Opera’s commitment to innovation extends beyond MiniPay. Earlier this year, the company introduced generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) integration into its web browser, referred to as AI Prompt. This feature provides users with contextual prompts for web pages or highlighted text, enhancing the browsing experience by delivering relevant information and suggestions.

Furthermore, Opera has been proactive in enhancing the security of its web browser and services. In December, it launched a suite of security tools designed to protect users against “malicious Web3 actors”.

This move emphasizes Opera’s dedication to ensuring a safe and secure online experience for its users, particularly in the realm of emerging technologies like Web3 and blockchain.
