AMC breaks over 120% of records.  He raised more money and shareholders and will offer popcorn - Bolsa

Shares in AMC – the world’s largest movie theater chain – soared more than 120% in Wednesday’s session to a record $ 72.62, then lost some speed and eventually gained 95% to $ 62.55, the final all-time high.

Due to the high volatility, trading in the shares was suspended twice during the session on Wall Street.

The AMC bonds were sold by the announcement of the American company that it would reach its new supporters through an initiative called AMC Investor Connect.

The company described this “investor connection” as a way of “direct communication” AMC with a huge base of enthusiasts and individual shareholders.

As a reminder, AMC continues to enjoy the popularity it has won among a group of investors focused on the Reddit platform. So-called “meme stocks,” a group that includes AMC or the game store chain GameStop, have grown significantly since the beginning of the year, with an army of small investors increasingly investing in these actions to punish large investors who have bet on its fall.

The chain also announced today that its small shareholder base has grown to over 3 million owners in recent months.

“Many investors have shown their support for the trust in AMC. We plan to communicate more frequently with these investors and from time to time offer them special benefits in our cinemas, ”CEO Adam Aron said today in a statement quoted by CNN.

These benefits will include free XL popcorn packages for investors watching this summer’s first movie in the AMC room, while other promotions will include special discounts and invitations to movie previews.

Also, the growth of shares is facilitated by the fact that yesterday AMC announced that it had raised $ 230.5 million by selling 8.5 million bonds to Mudrick Capital Management. However, Bloomberg said that immediately after the purchase of the “hedge fund” [fundo de cobertura de risco] sold all shares, taking advantage of the rally and making a significant profit.

The cinema chain is trying to get back to normal after a bad year for the industry in which it operates. The pandemic hit cinemas especially hard, which had to be closed with restrictions and many films had to be delayed. However, Reddit’s army of supporters has allowed it to take over the stock market.

This rise in the stock market has allowed it to achieve a market capitalization – currently at $ 29.67 billion – which no longer matches the Russell 2000 where it is quoted as it is an index for lower-cap listed companies.

LUNA Creator Wants to Hard Fork to Save Cryptocurrency and Kill UST Stablecoin

Do Kwon has a plan to try to revive the Earth’s ecosystem and its cryptocurrency MOON: Retire current network and UST stablecoin.

South Korean founder of Terraform Labs defended this Monday (16th) that Earth’s blockchain must go through hard fork which will split the current network into two parts. The old version will be called “Terra Classic” and the new one will be simply “Terra”.

With the adoption of the new version of the blockchain, a new cryptocurrency called Luna appears on the market, and the old token is renamed Luna Classic with the symbol LUNC.

In the new Terra ecosystem, UST is abandoned in the old chain, and the updated version of Terra no longer has stablecoin algorithm.

“Land is more than UST,” Kwon wrote. “While UST has been the central narrative of the Earth’s growth story over the past year, the spread of UST has led to the development of one of the strongest developer ecosystems in crypto that is worth preserving.”

Case a offer will be voted on by the community this Wednesday (18), the hard fork that will create the new Earth circuit will take place next Friday (27).

Distribution of the new version of LUNA

If the hard fork is approved, the new version of Luna will be distributed in the form of airdrops targeted at coin holders.

According to Do Kwon’s proposal, Luna will be distributed free of charge to holders and users who make bid current currency version; for UST holders and developers of major Earth applications.

According to Kwon, the Terraform Labs wallet will not be participating in this giveaway, which “makes Terra a fully community-owned network.”

The tokens will be distributed to users who had Luna and UST in their wallet at the time the snapshot was taken, with a record of the wallets and their amounts in the given time period.

To determine the distribution of tokens, two snapshots will be taken: the first entry “before the attack” will be from block 7544914 on May 7, and “launch” will be block 7790000 mined on May 27th.

In total, 1 billion Luna tokens will be issued in the new version of the blockchain, distributed as follows:

25% – community pool regulated by management

1% – emergency allocation for core developers (no crashes)

4% are core developers

35% – holders with Luna (minus Terraform Labs wallet) in snapshot”before the attack

10% – Luna holders (including derivatives) in a snapshot”launch

25% – UST holders in the picture”launch

In order to prevent tokens from being dumped into the market after launch, the proposal states that new holders will be locked by coins (cliff) during a year.

“We believe that this distribution of tokens, in addition to LFG’s best efforts to help UST holders, better takes into account the different interests and time preferences for each stakeholder group and, more importantly, creates the most viable path for the rebirth of the Earth’s ecosystem.” concluded Do Kwon.
