Focused Labs Rebranding As Graph Effect – Focused on Increasing Facebook “Likes” with Flic Social Media
Social media marketing company Focused Labs is undergoing a name and focus change as it is preparing to assist companies in increasing their Facebook “likes”.
The company, now to be known as GraphEffect, has been involved with Facebook’s Advertising API program beta, in which brands can craft and post their own ads on the social network without needing to utilize the Facebook Advertising Manager tool.
GraphEffect is marketing itself as the first social media system to specifically focus on increasing Facebook “likes” and customer conversions through the network’s feeds. It is their opinion that, as digital advertising options multiply, brands need to tap into every possible avenue in order to maximize the bottom line. The social media agency feels that with its newly designed algorithms created specifically for Facebook, it can efficiently match customers with their clients’ products and services.
Before this announcement, Focused Labs had received a new $2 million dollar investment from a variety of venture capital funds including CrossCut Ventures, Rincon Venture Partners, Thrive Capital , Founder Collective, Lerer Ventures, and Baroda Ventures as well as individual angel investors Stephano Kim and Matt Coffin.
Expectations are high for GraphEffect but their investors and CEO assert that their efforts over the past year have driven millions of new fans to their clients, so if the company is able to continue this trend with their new goal then growth should continue unabated.
Facebook Playing Possible Matchmaker for Barbie and Ken
In a unique ploy, toy manufacturer Mattel is asking Facebook users to weigh in on whether or not Ken and Barbie, perhaps the toy world’s best-known couple, should get back together after a recent seven-year long breakup.
The couple, together for 43 years, took a hiatus back in 2004 when Barbie left Ken for Australian surfer ‘Blaine’. Since then, the Ken character broke out on his own with an appearance in the commercially and critically-lauded Toy Story 3 as well as at New York Fashion Week.
Mattel however is interested to see if fans would like to see the iconic couple back together, especially on the eve of the company’s upcoming “Sweet Talking Ken” doll release. The company has carefully employed social media to spread the message by heavily hitting up Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and YouTube in an effort that has begun gaining online traction as well as real world billboards posted in New York and Los Angeles.

For their Facebook campaign, Ken only needs 10,000 “likes” on his page in order to finally reunite with Barbie; fans can also vote at a special website, barbieandken.com, to make their feelings known. Ken himself is hoping to reunite with his lost love this upcoming Valentine’s Day, in a perfectly timed gesture by Mattel.…
Investors in the United States who wish to trade Bitcoin without having to buy the cryptocurrency have been given another route to the top-ranked virtual currency via Bitcoin Exchange Traded Notes (ETN).
Details of the Bitcoin ETN
According to Bloomberg, starting Wednesday American investors will now have access to Bitcoin Tracker One, and BTC ETN and Crypto Gambling. The product which runs under the CXBTF ticker will be quoted in U.S. dollars. However, the clearing and settlement of the trade will be in Krona and Euro since the product is listed and regulated in Sweden.
The ETN is issued by XBT Provider, a subsidiary of CoinShares. The company developed the product in 2015. In July 2018, Amsterdam-based EU speed trading behemoth, Flow Traders became the first company to participate in the BTC ETN market.
For Americans, trading is this particular Bitcoin ETN is like purchasing a U.S. depository receipt in that a foreign-listed asset is denominated in U.S. dollars. Commenting on the ETN, CEO of Coinshares, Ryan Radloff said:
Everyone that’s investing in dollars can now get exposure to these products, whereas before, they were only available in euros or Swedish krona. Given the current climate on the regulatory front in the U.S., this is a big win for Bitcoin.
ETN Might Represent a Soft Opening for Bitcoin ETF
The introduction of BTC ETN trading capability in the United States could be seen as a soft opening for the much sought after Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF). The SEC has far remained unmoved in its reticence concerning issuing approval for any BTC ETF.
Recently, the Commission denied the Winklevoss twins’ ETF application while postponing its decision on the VanEck/SolidX, as well as the Direxion filings. According to the SEC, issues relating to liquidity, custodial tools, and price manipulation haven’t been sufficiently addressed.
ETNs and ETFs are similar in some respects as they provide an opportunity to invest in an asset without actually owning the asset. Such a trading avenue seems perfect for cryptocurrencies given their price volatility. However, a few subtle differences exist between the two. Rather than being an asset pool, ETN is more like a debt instrument that is backed by a bank or any other recognized issuing institution.
Do you think the Bitcoin ETN will gain traction in the American market? Keep the conversation going in the comment section below.
Ethereum Price Falls Below $300 as Cryptocurrency Market Tumbles – Crypto ICO Report NEWS13 Total viewsNo comments
The price of Ethereum has fallen below $300 as the cryptocurrency market enters a more intense bearish pullback. Except for Tether, all other top ten coins have experienced significant negative price movements within the last 24-hour trading period.
Ethereum Tumbles 17 Percent
Ethereum, the second-ranked cryptocurrency according to market capitalization sunk to its lowest 2018 valuation on Monday afternoon UTC. ETH has not traded below $300 since the start of November 2017. At press time, ETH has dipped more than 17 percent to take its 2018 decline to 60 percent.
The decline in the price of ETH is being attributed to the disillusionment of ICO investors. The sheer number of ICO exit scams and the amounts being siphoned by these pump and dump schemes has created negative sentiments in the ETH market.
Ethereum, the preferred platform for most ICO projects benefited from this fact reaching above $1,000 in February 2018. At the time, BTC was declining below $6,000. However, the tide seems to have turned as many of the ICO projects that generated interest in ETH, driving up its price have begun to cash out to cover expenses. Thus, the ETH is is starting to slide. Commenting on the issue, BloomWater Capital chief, Biswas Das said:
These startups are raising a lot of funds, but they don’t have treasury management or enough cash management experience, so they’re selling too early and causing a lot of pressure in the market. It was fine last year, but right now, the market is so fragile that it causes a lot of pressure.
The general bearishness perhaps exacerbates the ETH decline in the market occasioned by stricter regulations and the slow pace of institutional adoption. Experts believe that projects aren’t done cashing out and thus predict even more pain for ETH investors as prices sink even lower.
Bitcoin Dips More than 20 Percent in August as Altcoins Continue to Bleed
Bitcoin briefly slipped below the $6,000 mark in the early morning on Tuesday (August 14, 2018). The top-ranked cryptocurrency is now back above $6,000 at the time of writing this article. BTC has dropped more than 20 percent in August eroding most of the gains accrued in July. Bitcoin’s year-to-date decline now stands at 57 percent.
Positive sentiments leading up to the SEC’s decision on numerous ETFs drove prices up to $8,400 in late July. However, the Commission has either rejected or delayed approving the various filings brought before it. The consensus is that an SEC-approved Bitcoin ETF in 2018 is highly unlikely.
The altcoin market, in general, appears bleak as well with prices depreciating significantly. Cardano leads the decline in the top ten, falling more almost 20 percent within the last 24 hours. Outside the top ten, Ethereum Classic has been unable to maintain its upward price trajectory after a raft of platform adoptions. The 13th-ranked cryptocurrency is currently down by more than 19 percent in the last 24 hours.
How low do you expect the price of Ethereum to reach in this current decline? Keep the conversation going in the comment section below.…
The Australian government today voted to ban Australian-based online gambling sites from offering their services to Australians. The ban also makes it illegal for Australian casinos to provide gambling services to other countries opposed to Internet gambling.
The Senate also voted 33-28 to exclude sports betting and lotteries from the interactive gambling ban, following last minute changes to the proposed legislation. Australian sports books and turf clubs were concerned that the ban would drastically affect their businesses.
According to Communications Minister Richard Alston, the gambling ban takes the necessary action to limit what the government called the tragic economic and social consequences of gambling in Australia.
Senators who voted for the final bill were pleased that the legislation limits overseas access to Australian gambling sites. Senator Bob Brown noted, “What’s bad for Australian households is bad for households elsewhere around the world.”
Australia has been grappling with the issue of problem gambling for years, but opponents of the bill argue that poker- and pull-tab machines in pubs are the real cause of the nation’s gambling problem. They also insist that the bill will not do anything to address the issue.
Opponents to the legislation have argued that the bill would be technologically difficult, if not impossible, to enforce. Many have suggested that the best solution to the problem is a regulated online gaming environment, but the government refused to waver on its committed to a total ban.
Critics of the ban also noted that Australian gaming companies will likely go offshore to get around the restrictions. Senator Brian Greig argued that “Australian companies could still locate themselves in a country where there was no prohibition, such as Vanuatu, and continue their services into those countries.”
The bill does not prohibit offshore operations from providing their services to Australian citizens.
