‘Inspired by my 12yro son’s gaming persona. From the cat’s complexion to his mischievous smirk. I’m sure version 2.0 will include corrective lenses since Lenox rarely blinks during his long online competitions of Roblox and Fortnite.’Vaughn Lowery

About Lucky Lenox

Nimble, intelligent, but modest, Lucky Lenox was a legacy, a descendant of humanity and hope. The capacity to meticulously mold this domesticated devil into a work of abstraction demanded patience and tenacity. After being nostalgic, we recalled the tutelage of an orange-banded cat, Lucky. That tiger baby turned into our best friend, witnessing a darker side that crawled in to play video games for hours, avoiding chores. Then a protege came along and marveled at the mirror. Improved, re-programmed on a path of endless possibilities which became an uninterrupted portal to affection.

After 20 years as a software architect and developer, Mikee Trompeta began his Web3 journey by building a cryptocurrency exchange.

Although the entire crypto market crashed, leaving most investors and blockchain enthusiasts uncertain of Web3’s future, the price of Bitcoin and Ethereum exploaded. Large corporate entities together with the general public began to take notice. 

Months later, NFT pioneer Gary Vaynerchuk set the standard for NFT projects when he launched VeeFriends. Soon after, Mikee liquidated all of his cryptocurrencies and wagered everything on VeeFriends. It was one of his best decisions to date.

Today, JDM Labs is dedicated to launching revolutionary NFTs and Web3 DAPPs.

Reasons For the Volatility of the Crypto Market

Cryptocurrency is a rapidly-growing market. This is not breaking news. You probably know both sides of the coin (so to speak): crypto has made kings —and paupers. But those wins and losses don’t necessarily come from winners picking good coins and losers picking bad ones. 

It is possible to talk to two people who have both invested in Dogecoin, but one lost money and the other gained a profit. Whether you gain or lose can depend largely on timing. This is because cryptocurrency is an incredibly topsy-turvy investment. All cryptocurrencies experience huge fluctuations in their valuation—a concept known on Wall Street as volatility. 

In one day, Bitcoin’s value dropped 30%. But, why? This question brings up something that we often forget with cryptocurrency: it isn’t intrinsically valuable. There isn’t gold or diamonds or anything backing up crypto’s value. At no point did the U.S. Treasury say, “Yes, any time someone wants to bring us Bitcoin, we will give them X number of dollar bills from our reserves.” Not all die-hard crypto fans would agree, but there is an argument that crypto’s value really only comes from how much people are willing to trade for it—in goods, other cryptocurrencies, or in dollars.

The the360mag website gives more information on the importance of blockchain to the cryptocurrency in ensuring it protects the volatility of crypto assets. The primary reason for volatility in cryptos is their newness. All new concepts take time to settle and be accepted.

The asset class, the market as well as investors/speculators are still finding their feet and so it is still the initial stages of price discovery. Cryptos have gained global prominence (or notoriety) in the last few years. But as an asset class, it’s not as accepted as traditional assets such as stocks or gold. 

Growing acceptance and maturity of the market go hand in hand. That is why when Tesla indicated that cryptocurrencies will not be accepted as a mode of payment, the value of Bitcoin crashed. Business Standard reported that when Tesla boss Elon Musk wrote ‘Doge’ on his Twitter post, the value of Dogecoin increased. Such influencing events or personalities are adding to the volatility, just the way when some star investor buys a particular company’s shares.

Given the lack of understanding and rules, trading is at present, highly speculative. Investors bet on the prices going up or down, and these speculative bets cause a sudden influx or outgo, leading to high volatility. We have discussed the reasons for the volatility below.

Lack Of A Controlling Agency

Unlike other asset classes that have some sort of governing or controlling agencies, cryptocurrencies are by their very nature not controlled by any entity. 

Forkast reported that the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has sought to entice the crypto-wealthy to the country’s shores. TAT is working with regulators and Bitkub, the country’s largest crypto exchange, to enable tourists to pay with cryptocurrencies and position the country as a “crypto-positive society”. 

The iGaming sector is also growing rapidly, with several crypto-friendly sportsbooks and casinos provided by Asiabet. The recommended sites also offer other traditional means of payment. Players can also enjoy welcome bonuses, a large variety of events with impressive odds, and FAQs such as details on deposits and withdrawals.

The Sentiment Factor

When cryptos get more popular and accepted, more investors will understand the factors that influence their movement. Till then, a lot of the movement is speculative in nature as investors are buying or selling based on sentiment.

Even those who are looking at cryptos for the long term are doing so as they believe that the asset class will gain acceptance. Tesla’s Musk, for instance, explained that he owned Dogecoin because many of the employees own Dogecoin.

“Many young investors are putting money in cryptos. Their aim is to invest and earn quickly. So when they lose a big amount, they usually quit the market, leading to volatility in the market,” says Ajeet Khurana, a crypto project advisor, and investor.

One such young investor is Delhi-based student Shivam Tiwari, 21, who has been investing in cryptos regularly since 2016. “My maximum loss so far has been Rs 89,000 and profit has been one-fourth of that. But we have to keep in mind that the volatile nature (of cryptos) makes it different from other forms of investments,” says Tiwari.

NFT-VIP

NFT-VIP is hosting its inaugural conference in the tech space to network their businesses, advance knowledge and engage intimately. In the recent past, similar NFT meetups have been held in multiple cities across America: Miami, New York City and Los Angeles. This year, NFT-VIP will be holding its series at Margaritaville Resort Time Square, June 19 – 22. 360 MAGAZINE serves as the official media sponsor of the episode.

As a rapidly growing digital industry, NFT-VIP has become a popular way for people to trade outside the conventional financial system. It continues to stimulate the development of a virtual economy based on digital strengths in various forms: music, art and fashion.

“The idea of using cryptocurrencies is not only a form of currency. Along with a deliverable channel, knowing that entities could be built on them and using them is mind-blowing,” states Julie Lamb, CEO of NFT-VIP. This is the first major 360 MAG Podcast promotion that will serve as the official launch. Interviewee Jefferson Noel is scheduled to speak on the NFT-VIP agenda. Other notable guests: Andrew Yang, Young Paris, Alex Alpert, Vaughn Lowery, Chris Carter, Genesis Johnson, postVerrone, Fanzo, Sal DiGuardia and FoodMasku.

The NFT-VIP festival was fabricated with the unique digital identifier enthusiast in mind, providing a golden opportunity to intensify transmissions and interrelations. The number of leading brands and celebrities involved in this field is increasing exponentially with the world’s first and largest crypto collectibles market—OpenSea. With that, 360 MAGAZINE has minted and released a loveable Animal set.

As a media partner, 360 MAGAZINE aims to liaise between NFT-VIP participants and disadvantaged business enterprises. 360 is determined to spread the word on NFT-VIP to countless cohorts: the elderly, women, racialized groups and the queer community. “We now coexist in a multi-generational society with multi-racial people who have multi-educational backgrounds and who possess multi-hyphen lifestyles. Our purpose here is to create an environment of inclusiveness and to further facilitate sustainable relationships beyond the metaverse,” Lowery shares.

During the engagement, 360’s Swarovski encrusted bottle, made in collaboration with Integrity Bottles and Good Vibe Gliders, will be forged on Solana with partial proceeds donated to a charity. 360, freshly announced pet NFT, apace with Reebok’s Looney Tunes footwear, will go to a handful of lucky guests with Best Tech Style. Additionally, in real time, the publication will interview the speakers in their ecletic enclosure with bean bags and a bejeweled e-bike.

ADAM ANDERSON

Listen to Adam Anderson on 360 MAG Podcast HERE

Adam Anderson, the author of Fire Yourself, the Entrepreneurial Endgame and co-host of the Two Stones, One Bird podcast, is a cyber security and space entrepreneur who has been the advisor, founder and/or primary investor in over 30 startups. Adam created the field of the psychological security and started his cybersecurity business to reach the goal of “Building resilient human minds to resist manipulation through technology,” stopping people from hacking minds by making sure everyone is aware of the concept. By taking the human side under consideration, Adam realized that it is still not fully protected when humans are involved in the virtual process where cybercrime happens, even though the underlying technology of crypto and NFT is safe today.

As the world is becoming incredibly digitalized, the businesses that need cyber security the most are those on the supply chain who are trying to adopt new technology but have little perception of blockchain and smart contracts. As a cybersecurity venture, Adam is responsible for the growth of cyber economy by reporting criminal activity and researching companies to ensure they are trustworthy. Adam is also one of the speakers at the NTF-VIP which is happening in NYC from June 19th – to 22nd. Being a person who holds the experience as both an entrepreneur and an institutional investor, Adam is excited and curious about “how do I use traditional bc and pe structure to organize all these things but replace institutional money coming in with money from NFT and DeFi.” At the same time, his engaged and professional speech made him a reliable speaker for clients looking to create a buzz in their communities. 

In 2018, after selling his first cyber security company, Adam recognized that his role should be investing in people building companies that innovate in cyber security instead of staying on the front line. This is the point where he started acting as venture capital. The process of walking alongside those startups from the beginning stage to the final launch and production usually takes five years with three roles involved in each stage: pre-accelerator, accelerator, and incubator. He is now serving as the Chair of the Board for Hook Security and as Managing General Partner for Ansuz Capital

Professor Jefferson Noel is the son of Haitian immigrants whom spoke with Vaughn Lowery of 360 MAGAZINE

Meet Jefferson Noel

Author, Orator and Professor

Listen to his chat with Vaughn on 360 MAG Podcast HERE.

Jefferson Noel, the founder of Barbershop Speaks, is dedicated to providing a comfortable daily space for people to be engaged in intelligent conversation. Starting from a simple question in the summer of 2016, “What would happen if we engage in intentional dialogues about issues that affect us directly in spaces that are common and comfortable for the community,”  Barbershop Speaks has been set up as a platform to educate and empower the underserved communities around the country on web3.

He is now also a professor at Florida Memorial University, teaching public speaking, business, and professional speaking. Coming from an immigrant Haitian family, Jefferson deeply understood the importance of education by seeing her parents seeking out a better life in the U.S. as immigrants. During college, after attending student government and being an involved student, he realized that studying for comprehension and real-life application would greatly benefit people’s future life after graduating. The thirst for learning comes from the general public’s respect for knowledgeable people. Therefore, after meeting and being involved with a professor during his trip to Canada to finish his book, Jefferson landed a job as a professor at Florida Memorial University and was determined to bring more value to students.

By keeping the idea that human is a unique live beings and there are different values inside every single human being, Jefferson holds strong beliefs in the power of conversation. During his childhood, Jefferson usually went to barber shops when his father was a barber, where he always listened to those conversations happening around. This is where the idea of the Barbershop Speaks from “The barbershop, in my opinion, is the communities’ classroom where everyone is both the teacher and the student,” says Jefferson.

However, the journey of being in a conversational world has been good and bad at the same time. People see his values while not wanting to pay for the values he brings to the table. Nevertheless, growing up in a family with many role models to look up to, such as his father who is a pastor, and his older brother who always has a clear mind and knows what he is doing, Jefferson has always been humble. He has decided to move forward not focusing on people who are not helping but trying his best to catch good opportunities. According to Jefferson, “As long as I continue to be on my grind, as long as I continue to do life in the proper way, then I know I’ll reach the promise men,” the unavoidable dehumanization coming from his race has never discouraged him but positively motivated him.

Jefferson started connecting to the crypto space about one year ago and was attracted to the technology behind NFT. The ability of NFT to verify ownership of a digital asset on the blockchain made him believe that it is something worth sharing with the whole world. He will attend the NFT-VIP Event, which will happen in NYC through June 19th-22nd, as a speaker on Sunday at 1 pm, sharing how to balance life learning and leadership. 

Jefferson is proud to sponsored by Lab22c.

CEO of NFT VIP Julie Lamb via 360 Magazine

JULIE LAMB

NFT-VIP: Bridge to Reality

Julie Lamb, the CEO, Founder, and Executive Producer of How-To with Julie Sue, is a problem solver, storyteller, digital content creator, and economy connector. She is a collector of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum and is passionate about helping brands build their identity using current tools and a highly selected network of virtual agents to develop the entrepreneurial capacity of brands. She has already collaborated with multiple popular brands such as iHome, Disney, KidDesigns, Hasbro, CES, KeaBabies, Michael Todd Beauty, and Crown Goose USA. 

Listen to Julie Lamb’s full conversation with Vaughn Lowery on the 360 MAG Podcast HERE.

While studying music, Julie went to Europe and started working on fashion collections. She finally settled in New York, where Julie has 30 years of experience working as a model. By highlighting the activity with Brunello Cucinelli on Saks Fifth Avenue, Julie mentioned that her creative confidence was greatly inspired after moving from a small Southwestern town to the Big Apple, New York City. 

Julie has long loved the worlds of tech, digital, and speed: ‘I like being able to share things digitally.’ At the forefront of the crypto wave in 2017, she bought Ethereum, a digital platform used to make smart contracts, allowing entrepreneurs to create decentralized applications, as in the case of Julie. 

Immersed in the realm of cryptocurrencies, the trailblazer supports projects like Non-Fungible Token (NFT). As a rapidly developing industry, NFT is becoming an increasingly popular way to buy and sell digital art, spanning industries like sports, music, fashion, film, games, etc. The annual NFT conference, held in multiple cities (including New York City and Los Angeles) around the United States, attracts hundreds of guests from various fields who speak about exponential growth and future trends in different verticals and how the digital landscape can incorporate this new tradeable product. 

As an NFT-VIP (in which 360 MAGAZINE will serve as one of the media sponsor), Julie’s mission is to shape the NFT industry into diverse communities made of global thought leaders who share like-minded values and beliefs. Last April, she attended the Miami NFT week and served as its Executive Producer, where she focused on igniting new dialogue amongst attendees and tastemakers on topics related to technology, creative installations, immersive art, and performance. Julie can be recognized as an economy connector for providing the space for several minority-owned businesses in this conference to discuss the present and future of the meta-universe and how it affects them. 

Although the attendance was underrepresented and some representative minority-owned businesses felt left out, Julie declared her conditional support for the voice of women and the LGBTQ community. Meanwhile, this kind of offline meeting takes highly digital products further into reality, narrowing the society’s discrimination against aging. In addition, she is fascinated by using Web3.0 and its implementation with artists in the fields of music, fashion, and the token economy.

An example of this is that the international brand Gucci has started a multi-directional exploration to embrace the digital world, which associates a luxury brand with emerging technologies through a series of avatar experiences; i.e. exhibitions of Gucci art, mini-games, and digital item purchases.

Julie is now preparing a private event in New York City with NFT VIP sponsorships from June 19th-22nd at Margaritaville Resort Times Square, owned by the real estate and investment firm Soho Properties. Surprise celebrities will be attending that directly tie in with her message and bring new inspiration to the community. Sponsorship opportunities available for this four-day event.

In the field of cryptocurrencies, that features multiple sponsors, will have an additional sponsor called the crypto coin concierge. They will cover the luxury travel for the most elite global clients in the world of cryptocurrencies and with payment through these. Julie tells us that her company has also partnered with iHeartRadio on Crypto Radio in the marketing industry.
