The visionary Garcia, an innovator of the 1960's psychedelic San Francisco sound, well known as the guitarist and vocalist for the Grateful Dead, was also a pioneer in the visual arts, being the first of his contemporaries to create digital art.

As a teenager, he studied at the San Francisco Art Institute and worked with various media, including oil, watercolor, and pen and ink. Later, his art toured in galleries and museums throughout the United States and the world.

In January 2015 , the Jerry Garcia Foundation launched an ongoing charity arts program in his honor, one focused on supporting environmental, artistic and humanitarian causes.

Jerry Garcia's youngest daughter Keelin, a producer on the project, comments, "I tend to think my dad would love the concept of NFTs. This feels like a new, revolutionary space where artists and collectors can interact in a more meaningful way, and NFTs are so unique and unlike anything we have ever seen. I like to imagine the ethos of this movement would resonate with my dad's philosophical views."

A three percent donation of NFT net proceeds are to be donated to the Jerry Garcia Foundation . Gift grant funds will be allocated to support 1960s music legend Jorma Kaukonen's Psylodelic Gallery located in Pomeroy, Ohio . The nonprofit gallery, cofounded by Jorma and his wife Vanessa, presents ever-revolving art shows focused on the "Summer of Love" spirit.

Another charitable element of this project will support the Jerry Garcia Foundation's ocean preservation fund. Jerry Garcia frequently traveled to the Hawaiian Islands, and it was his love of scuba diving that helped foster his passion for ocean preservation.

This project also utilizes the carbon offset tools made available by Aerial — an environmentally conscious company focused on mitigating humanity's carbon footprint.

Investing in Fantasy Sports Stocks

Investing in Fantasy Sports Stocks

When sports writer Daniel Okrent invented Rotisserie League Baseball in 1979, it’s unlikely that the “father of fantasy sports” could have imagined it would evolve into an US$8.9 billion market.

Of course, much of that growth can be attributed to advancements in technology. Fantasy sports magazines published in the late 1980s became websites in the 1990s, and eventually fantasy sports businesses; more recently there’s been a boom in fantasy sports apps for smartphones.

North America currently represents the largest market for fantasy sports services. Research and Markets estimates that more than 59 million people in the US and Canada play fantasy sports. However, India is set to experience significant market growth in the near-term future, with expectations that the number of players will rise from 20 million to a projected 150 million by 2022.

EAST SIDE GAMES GROUP ANNOUNCES NORMAL COURSE ISSUER BID

 East Side Games Group Inc. (TSX: EAGR) (OTC: EAGRF) (" ESGG " or the " Company ") announces that the Toronto Stock Exchange (" TSX ") has accepted its notice to proceed with a normal course issuer bid (the " NCIB ").

The Company's board of directors believes that the market price of the Company's common shares (the " Shares "), from time to time, may not reflect the inherent value of the Company, and purchases of Shares pursuant to the NCIB may represent an appropriate and desirable use of the Company's funds.  Any purchases made under the NCIB will be made by the Company subject to favourable market conditions at the prevailing market price at the time of acquisition through the facilities of the TSX and other alternative Canadian trading systems.

Pursuant to the notice, during the twelve month period commencing August 16, 2022 and ending August 15, 2023 , the Company may purchase up to 4,076,819 of its Shares, representing approximately 5% of its outstanding Shares as of August 2 , 2022.  Under the NCIB, other than purchases made pursuant to block purchase exemptions, the Company may purchase up to 5,371 Shares on the TSX and other alternative Canadian trading systems during any trading day, which represents approximately 25% of the average daily trading volume of the Shares on the TSX for the past six calendar months, being 21,486 shares per day. The Company may cancel any Shares repurchased under the NCIB, or reserve them for awards under its equity compensation plan.

In conjunction with the NCIB, the Company has entered into an automatic share purchase plan (the " ASPP ") with a designated broker to allow for the purchase of its Shares under the NCIB at times when the Company normally would not be active in the market due to applicable regulatory restrictions or internal trading blackout periods.  The ASPP has been pre-cleared by the TSX and is effective August 16, 2022 , the commencement date of the NCIB.  The ASPP constitutes an "automatic securities purchase plan" under applicable Canadian securities laws.  Shares purchased under the ASPP will be included in computing the number of Shares purchased under the NCIB.  Outside of these internal trading blackout periods, purchases under the NCIB will be made based on management's discretion.

Although the Company intends to purchase Shares under its NCIB, there can be no assurances that any such purchases will be completed.
