YourUpdateTV

2020 was a rollercoaster year, upending all of our norms, including the world of dating. Bumble, the women-first social networking company, recently found that 40% of daters say they aren’t confident they know how to date any more. Recently, Clare O’Connor, Head of Editorial Content at Bumble teamed with YourUpdateTV to share insights from the popular online dating app. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/k-bJv4ejWtc One of the biggest trends coming out of 2020 and into 2021’s cuffing season is the rise in “Slow Dating.” Daters are being more intentional and serious about their online dating lives as they raise the bar on what it means to build trust while dating on Bumble. Another trend is a surge of newly single daters, otherwise known as “New Dawn Daters.” – these are users that were in a relationship that ended shortly following the outbreak of COVID-19 and nationwide lockdowns where daters were not able to see their partners. Despite all of the challenges that this past year presented, data shows that people feel a sense of optimism and are more intentional about finding love in 2021. When it comes to using dating apps, 45% of daters are looking for a serious relationship and 41% are keeping it casual.

“STOCK MARKET FOR SPORTS” SURPASSES $2 MILLION IN USER TRADES

Jock MKT

Jock MKT (Jock Market), the platform that is turning sports into a stock exchange, announced they have surpassed $2 million in user trades since launching in September of 2020. It took four months for Jock MKT to hit their first $1 million in trades and only 26 days to reach their next $1 million milestone between December 25, 2020 and January 19, 2021. Now approved in 34 states, Jock MKT is planning to host their first “cash market” for the NFL’s biggest game on Sunday, Feb. 7. Users will be able to bid on virtual shares of Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers players during an IPO stage that will conclude prior to kickoff. When the IPO ends, any Jock MKT user can buy and sell shares from other investors during the game in real time for real money. “The early users of Jock MKT have become like a community,” said Tyler Carlin, Co-Founder of Jock MKT. “We’ve gotten to know many of them by their screen names in the app; I think we probably get as excited as they do when someone that’s been around from the beginning nets a big win.” On January 24, Travis Kelce’s IPO price was $11.01 for the NFL’s Conference Championship Round. Investors in Kelce needed to bid at least $11.01 to obtain shares in the IPO or buy shares through a bid and ask model that is similar to a real stock exchange. Kelce ended the day with the most fantasy points and his shares paid out $25 per share for a return of 127%. In the same cash market, Marquez Valdes-Scantling saw the biggest return at +237%, Aaron Jones saw the biggest loss at minus 84%, and Tom Brady was down 23% verses his IPO price. Patrick Mahomes was up 45%. “One person shared a screenshot on Twitter of their $1,200 return after they invested in Kelce shares on Sunday,” added Carlin. “Then, another user saw a $1,500 return during this past weekend’s PGA Tour event. It’s been great to see, and we’re looking forward to giving more fans a fun way to be invested in the action, especially during sports’ biggest event on February 7.” Jock MKT was co-founded by Tyler Carlin, a 2013 graduate of MIT’s Sloan School of Management. Led by Will Ventures, the platform raised its first round of funding in September. Will Ventures’ Founding Partner and Managing Director is Isaiah Kacyvenski, a retired eight-year NFL veteran with a Harvard MBA. Accomplice founding partner Ryan Moore, an early investor and current board member of DraftKings, is also a stakeholder in Jock MKT. Headquartered in Boston and launched in 2020, Jock MKT ( JockMKT.com ) is a fantasy gaming platform where users can make real money – every minute, every second, of every game. Inspired by a traditional stock exchange, Jock MKT allows users to buy and sell shares of athletes in real time.

Serai Launches End-to-End Supply Chain Traceability Solution for the Apparel Industry

Media Outreach

*Serai’s new solution helps businesses build supply chain visibility and track ESG commitments **Solution being piloted by industry leaders to prove cotton and raw material origins HONG KONG SAR - Media OutReach - 26 January 2021 - Serai, a network-based digital B2B platform by HSBC, has launched a traceability solution that allows apparel businesses to track cotton and other raw materials going into their product. Businesses can use the new solution to trace order flow throughout the supply chain, manage supply chain risks and collect data for compliance needs. Serai helps businesses map upstream suppliers and track environmental, sustainability and governance (ESG) commitments. “It is critical for suppliers, manufacturers and brands to show and prove the origins of their products. However, it can be difficult for businesses to have full visibility over their complex supply chains as much of this data is currently fragmented and managed manually. Serai makes it easy for businesses to access and unify complex supply chain information from multiple sources,” says Vivek Ramachandran, Chief Executive Officer, Serai. Businesses only need to integrate information sources once. Serai then enables them to share this with multiple parties over a secure platform. The solution is customisable, able to accommodate the needs of each company. “Serai combines multiple data sources into a single view making it easy for businesses and their supply chain partners to have an overview of information that they may not have had access to before. Not only does this allow for a seamless flow of information, it could help them identify gaps and inefficiencies in their current processes,” says Vivek. “In today’s climate, it’s critical that apparel businesses take a proactive approach in tracing and being transparent about their product journey. Such practises will help them build a more resilient, sustainable and compliant supply chain.” Serai’s ambition is to simplify global trade, with an initial focus on the apparel industry. For more information on the traceability solution, visit www.seraitrade.com/traceability About Serai Serai is the digital B2B platform by HSBC helping apparel businesses build the advantage of trust through relationships and facilitating supply chain transparency. Members can develop new relationships, showcase strengths and offerings, grow their digital presence and exchange complex supply chain information to achieve their transparency goals. It’s all about simplifying global trade. Serai is an essential evolving resource that gives businesses control and ownership over their data and digital assets. It’s all about helping members overcome the challenges of global trade – and making it easier for everyone.
