Leslie and Virtual X Kitchen held a launch event at the university over the weekend, which was attended by many students, to commemorate the occasion.
"We are excited to continue our US expansion of Leslie with great partners like Virtual X Kitchen, bringing our easy-to-use platform to students at the University of Maryland," said Leslie CEO and co-founder, Joey Barnett. "We are proud of the way our platform benefits all parties involved and are confident this will be a relationship that flourishes."
Leslie is inspired by Barnett’s grandfather in both name and spirit. The company plans to quadruple its headcount in 2022, and will roll out several additional innovations designed to accelerate adoption of QR code-driven transactions directly into the US.

Mark Zuckerberg, now $31 billion poorer thanks to Facebook’s first ever quarterly decline in daily users, might find consolation this week in his company’s virtual reality business. Although Facebook (now known as Meta) hasn’t revealed how many users it has on its Oculus VR platform, new data from Steam—the largest online distributor of PC video games, with 120 million monthly users—suggest Meta’s virtual reality (VR) business is dominant and growing fast.
It could be a while before buyers emerge in force on Meta, warns veteran tech analyst Dan Ives.
Netflix is likely to lose the so-called streaming wars to rivals Disney, Apple, Peacock, and Paramount due to these reasons.
In 2015, Google announced it would rebrand as Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOG) (NASDAQ: GOOGL), signaling the company's intentions to be more than just a suite of ad-driven products. Investors cheered the move, sending the stock up 4%, and Google management said the decision was modeled after Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway, designed to create a conglomerate of thriving tech businesses. Google split Alphabet into two primary segments: Google, which included its ad businesses including YouTube and Google-branded hardware; and other bets, which was made up of "moonshots" like autonomous vehicle start-up Waymo that aimed to solve some of the world's biggest problems.
Perhaps no two stocks have made more headlines in recent weeks than one-time growth darlings Netflix and Facebook. Netflix (NFLX) was the first to flop, plunging in the wake of earnings to a new 52-week low of around $351 on Jan. 26 – its lowest level since the first half of 2020 and down about 50% from its 52-week high. Then came Facebook parent Meta Platforms (FB) After its own challenging earnings report, it lost a staggering $230 billion or so in market value in a single session.
For much of the last two years, social media stocks have trended in the same direction. Companies like Facebook parent Meta Platforms (NASDAQ: FB), Snap (NYSE: SNAP), Pinterest, and Twitter are all subject to the same general influences, especially during the pandemic. More recently, social media companies have faced headwinds from supply chain challenges and cost inflation, which have weighed on ad spending.
Reverends, rabbis and other religious leaders urged Meta Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg to permanently stop the company's plan for an Instagram version aimed at young users on Tuesday, in a letter sent by advocacy group Fairplay and their Children's Screen Time Action Network. Since last September, Instagram has paused its plans to introduce a version of the photo-sharing app for kids, as opposition to the project grew. "After much meditation and prayer, we assert that social media platforms that target immature brains, practice unethical data mining, and are inspired by profit motives are not a tool for the greater good of children," said the letter, which was signed by more than 70 religious leaders.
Technical indicators continue to suggest a change in fortunes for Bitcoin (BTC) and the crypto market. Regulatory news remains a key risk, however.
The two founders whose identity were released have uploaded pictures of themselves on Twitter using the caption “Web2 me vs Web3 me.”
Facebook is the world’s largest online social network, with 2.5 billion monthly active users. Users engage with each other in different ways, exchanging messages and sharing news events, photos, and videos. On the video side, the firm is in the process of building a library of premium content and monetizing it via ads or subscription revenue. Facebook refers to this as Facebook Watch. The firm’s ecosystem consists mainly of the Facebook app, Instagram, Messenger, WhatsApp, and many features surrounding these products. Users can access Facebook on mobile devices and desktops. Advertising revenue represents more than 90% of the firm’s total revenue, with 50% coming from the U.S. and Canada and 25% from Europe. With gross margins above 80%, Facebook operates at a 30%-plus margin.

New York State's top pension official has asked streaming music platform Spotify Technology SA for details about the effectiveness of its new content rules, citing complaints including that podcaster Joe Rogan has spread misinformation about COVID-19 vaccines. New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli, who oversees funds that hold Spotify shares, requested the report in a letter sent to Spotify Chief Executive Daniel Ek on Feb. 2, which was shown to Reuters. The letter also urged Spotify to give users an easy mechanism to report content that could violate its rules, and to define how its board oversees content risks and enforcement.
The Associated Press, a collective of more than 1,300 news organizations, might be the original DAO (decentralized autonomous organization).
