APPx Group Holdings, Inc. Engages Scalar Decisions for CatchCoin(TM) Platform

Montreal, Quebec–(Newsfile Corp. – December 6, 2018) – Fintech incubator and blockchain development company, APPx Group Holdings, Inc. (CSE: APPX) (FSE: APO) (the “Company” or “APPx”), announced they have been working closely with Scalar Decisions Inc. (“Scalar”) to complete testing and compliance reviews for CatchCoin™, their augmented reality rewards platform where participating brick and mortar retailers, mall owners, and event venues get measurable foot traffic at their locations with a great return on investment (ROI).

Scalar performed penetration testing for the CatchCoin™ platform’s web application, REST API, iOS application, and Android application. Scalar, ranked as the #1 Canadian Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Security Company on Branham Group’s annual Branham300 listing five years running, also performed application source code compliance reviews and application architecture reviews for both Android and iOS.

The CatchCoin™ platform will give retailers and other businesses and events providers control over when and to whom their ads are served. The platform has an ad-scheduling feature, which advertisers can use to attract customers to their locations during downtimes in order to boost potential revenue by increasing foot-traffic and promoting high-margin merchandise while maximizing staff productivity. The users will benefit from real cash rewards they receive for visiting the locations of participating businesses. Their reward can be boosted by making a purchase – all of these details can be defined and adjusted within the CatchCoin™ Location Portal by advertisers any time as they see fit.

Kyle Maglio, VP of Product Development at APPx, said, “CatchCoin™ isn’t just a loyalty or reward points app, it is a real-money rewards app. Our clients put real money in, our users get real money out, and it’s paramount to us that the platform is secure end-to-end. As a geolocation-based app, the need for security is doubly important-to prevent spoofing and to ensure clients and customers have a safe, secure and seamless experience. We chose to work with Scalar because they are the best, and they have proven that with their work on CatchCoin™. Going forward, we plan to engage Scalar for upcoming projects in our Fintech division.”

“Scalar is so excited about the amazing innovation happening at APPx, and equally as proud to have worked on CatchCoin™. This app will change the landscape of online rewards,” says Theo Van Wyk, Chief Security Architect at Scalar. “Our team is excited to have contributed to a framework that supports a safe and secure platform, that users will be confident to transact with.”

DigiMax Announces Signing of Seven Joint Venture Agreements to Extend DigiMax Client Services to Eight Countries

(Please see “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-looking Statements” at end of document)

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – December 5, 2018) – DigiCrypts Blockchain Solutions Inc., now doing business as DigiMax Global Solutions (the “Company” or “DigiMax“) is pleased to announce that it has recently signed Joint Venture Agreements in seven countries that will enable DigiMax and its Joint Venture Partners (“JV Partner or Partnerships”) to provide consulting services to companies seeking to issue a Security Token Offering (“STO”) domiciled in any of the seven countries, or Canada where DigiMax can act directly.

In the short term, the JV Partnerships will assist clients in the country of the joint venture to establish their business plans in a manner that makes them suitable to issue STO’s as a form of raising capital. When ready to issue such tokens, the JV Partnership will introduce the client to work directly with a registered Broker/Dealer in their respective country who can assist these clients to raise funds from their STO in a regulatory-compliant manner.

In the medium term (12 to 24 months), each JV Partnership will incorporate a formal separate corporation to be majority-owned and controlled by DigiMax in a manner that requires consolidation accounting as defined under International Financial Reporting Standards, and will be managed day-to-day by the JV Partner in that country. Immediately following incorporation, the new corporation will apply to become a registered Broker/Dealer in that country.

The goal of these Joint Ventures is to build a corporately owned and controlled network of fully registered Broker/Dealers operating under the DigiMax Capital name around the world, and to also grow the number of signed Joint Venture Agreements in a manner that includes at least one country in all continents around the globe except Antarctica.

While two of the JV Partners are also members of the DigiMax Global Advisory Board, the services of the two groups are different.

The relationship between DigiMax and its Global Advisory Board members is strictly a collaboration effort regarding client referrals and awareness of emerging market issues. No services or professional reliance is demanded from the Global Advisors by DigiMax.

The relationship between DigiMax and its JV Partners is much more client service oriented where reliance will be placed on the JV Partner. As each JV Partnership becomes registered, both the individual JV Partner and individual employees of DigiMax will be expected to become registered individuals in addition to the corporation itself becoming registered.

A biography of each JV Partner can be found on our website at www.digimax.global

The Joint Venture Partners include:

Hong Kong – Casey Chen
Singapore – Venture Capital Network Pte. Ltd – Janet Lee
South Korea – The Wing Corp. – Minho Kang
Indonesia – Digital Enterprise Indonesia – Bari Arridono
England – Blockchain Ltd. – Ismail Malik
Malta – Silicon Malta Ltd. – Oliver Marco La Rosa
USA West – First Bitcoin Capital LLC – Greg Rubin

This partnership brings together all of the benefits and expediency of raising capital though security tokens, with a team that has decades of experience raising capital in conventional securities markets. The result is a team that combines expertise from both the token, and the conventional public capital markets world.

After the proposed acquisition of X2 Games was announced by BLOC in October, the two companies have entered into a definitive agreement in which BLOC will acquire X2 Games and BLOC will separate its exchange-related interests into a spinout entity. X2 Games will introduce several exciting elements to BLOC, including its current library of interactive gaming projects, as well as the leadership of Nolan Bushnell, the founder of Atari.

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – December 4, 2018) – GLOBAL BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGIES CORP. (CSE: BLOC.U) (FSE: BWSP) (OTC Pink: BLKCF) (“BLOC, or the “Company”) announces that further to the previously announced proposed transaction between BLOC and X2 Games Corp. (“X2 Games”), as announced in a press release dated October 10, 2018, the companies have entered into a definitive agreement whereby the Company will acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of X2 Games (the “X2 Games Shares”) by way of a three-cornered amalgamation (the “Transaction”). The Transaction will introduce the leadership of Atari co-founder Nolan Bushnell and Hollywood creative director and VFX visionary Zai Ortiz to BLOC’s operations, as BLOC pivots to focus on gaming-related projects.

Pursuant to the terms of the Transaction, BLOC will issue 330,519,541 common shares in the capital of the Company at a deemed price of $0.15 per share in exchange for all of the issued and outstanding X2 Games Shares, for an aggregate purchase price of $49,577,931.15. All intellectual property rights to X2 Games’ current game projects will become part of BLOC, including four digital interactive games for Amazon Alexa. One of these games, titled St. Noire, has a pre-release date set for Q1 2019, with three other Amazon Alexa games set to be launched in early 2019. A trailer of St. Noire can be seen at http://www.st-noire.com/amazon-alexa.

As a result of the acquisition by BLOC of X2 Games, a spinout entity will hold BLOC’s exchange-related interests (the “Spinout”). Only BLOC’s shareholders as of the record date of December 4, 2018, will be entitled to consideration as a result of the Spinout. These interests are as follows:

  1. All rights, work product, and assets related to the development of the Laser blockchain.

  8. BLOC’s investment in Quisitive Technology Solutions Inc.
  9. All rights in and to agreements between BLOC and Hewlett Packard Enterprise or its affiliates.

Shidan Gouran, President and CEO of the Company, commented “As a result of this transaction, we will have delivered three prosperous lines of business to our shareholders in just over a year’s time. Bringing Nolan and Zai, as well as their creative works into BLOC enables us to build a stronger footing in the ever-growing interactive gaming space. Then, with expanded operations for FORK, and continued developments with our exchange operations in the Spinout, we have a wide range of business interests in our family of companies. We expect things to go well with each of these companies before 2018 is out, with some very exciting prospects on the horizon for 2019.”

The Transaction is subject to the receipt of certain approvals, including regulatory approvals and the approval of shareholders of X2 Games (“X2 Games Shareholders”) at a special meeting to be called of X2 Games Shareholders to approve the Transaction (the “X2 Games Meeting”), and the satisfaction or waiver of certain customary closing conditions. The Board of Directors of X2 Games (the “X2 Games Board”) has unanimously recommended that X2 Games Shareholders vote in favour of the resolution to approve the Transaction, which will be the subject of the X2 Games Meeting expected to be held in the fourth quarter of 2018.

It is currently expected that, subject to receipt of all regulatory, shareholder and other approvals, and the satisfaction or waiver of all conditions, the Transaction will be completed in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – December 3, 2018) –  BIG Blockchain Intelligence Group Inc. (CSE: BIGG) (OTC: BBKCF) (WKN: A2JSKG) (“BIG” or “the Company”), a leading developer and provider of blockchain and cryptocurrency search, risk-scoring and data analytics tools and investigation services, announces the launch of the world’s first investigator-developed, 8-hour online certification course for cryptocurrency investigations: the Cryptocurrency Investigator Certification Course, which is available online at www.CryptoInvestigatorTraining.com.

“This course isn’t a simple introduction to bitcoin,” said BIG CEO, Lance Morginn. “This is a certified training solution for law enforcement investigators and compliance professionals that need a solid, in-depth understanding of how to trace, track and monitor cryptocurrency transactions and/or crypto crimes. The Cryptocurrency Investigator Certification Course draws on years of experience from our in-house investigators and Certified Bitcoin Professionals. Our Director of Forensics and Investigations, Robert Whitaker, served in law enforcement for 23 years, including as a Supervisory Special Agent with Homeland Security Investigations (HSI). Our Director of Financial Institution Strategy, Teresa Anaya, is ITIL 3 Certified, a Certified Fraud Examiner, and a Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist, with over 25 years experience focused on fraud, money laundering and terrorist financing investigations, including for the FDIC after the financial crisis of 2008, and for Standard Chartered Bank, Bank of America and others. By leveraging the decades of experience of our team, in conjunction with receiving industry feedback, we’re proud to offer this professionally designed course that’s intentionally organized to be easily understood. That’s why, of the 50+ initial people that have gone through our training so far, 100% reported a positive satisfaction rating.”

The Cryptocurrency Investigator Certification Course consists of 5 fee-based modules that begin with the basics, progress to more advanced topics, and finish with a detailed forensic review of cryptocurrency transactions covering a variety of crypto crimes. Each individual learning module is approximately 1 to 2 hours long, enabling law enforcement and compliance professionals to take the modules one at a time, and at their own pace. The 5 modules can be purchased individually or as a bundle at a reduced price, providing a cost-effective and easy solution for clients with limited training budgets.

The course was developed with the investigator in mind, and is beneficial for all law enforcement and financial compliance specialists regardless of experience level; students do not need to be a computer forensics expert to understand how to recognize, investigate and successfully prosecute or report cryptocurrency related crimes.

The Cryptocurrency Investigator Certification Course modules comprise:

  1. Introduction to Cryptocurrency: Covers the basics of fiat, virtual and cryptocurrencies and the many different types of cryptocurrency; lays the foundation for law enforcement, financial institutions and financial crimes investigators to gain a firm and vital understanding of what cryptocurrency is, how it works, and how it can be used in both legitimate and illicit activities.
  2. The Bitcoin Trail: Explores the most dominate cryptocurrency, who invented it, and the reasons why and how it is being used; delves into cryptocurrency mining, common criminal schemes where bitcoin is used, and how Anti-Money Laundering (AML) compliance professionals and law enforcement investigate related criminal activity using advanced analytical tools.
  1. The Dark Web: Provides an overview of the part of the internet commonly used by criminals and their criminal enterprises; students learn of additional crimes where cryptocurrency is involved, how criminals use peer-to-peer exchanges, and little-known real-world investigation tips.
  1. Cryptocurrency and the Criminal Element: Reveals the criminal element of cryptocurrency and how to identify and track the evidence left behind; students are introduced to insights that are crucial to investigators, such as how dark web marketplaces and cryptocurrencies work together and how they translate into the physical world.
  1. Blockchain Forensics: Deepens understanding of the intricacies of blockchain technology and explores analytical tools for investigating crypto crimes; students enhance their ability to identify the proper investigative tactics related to crime involving cryptocurrency, and gain understanding of how blockchains work and the pseudo-anonymous nature of cryptocurrency, giving investigators the ability to efficiently and quickly analyze the data to spot illicit activity and/or support criminal investigations and prosecutions.

The Cryptocurrency Investigator Certification Course was developed in-house by BIG’s team of forensic experts, including a former Supervisory Special Agent for Homeland Security Investigations in conjunction with a Certified Fraud Examiner / Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist. The training, originally created and certified for US law enforcement officers, has been modified to also address the needs of financial intelligence analysts, investigators and compliance professionals. Students that take all 5 modules and pass the final exam earn the credential of Certified Cryptocurrency Investigator from BIG.

BIG’s Director of Forensics and Investigations, Robert Whitaker, commented: “We made sure the Cryptocurrency Investigator Certification Course provides the foundation of knowledge that’s essential to helping law enforcement and compliance professionals navigate the new era of cryptocurrency. But it was also our mission to go beyond pure knowledge by including actionable tips and insights from the field that can be put to immediate use by investigators, including real-life examples of how criminals utilize cryptocurrency to further their illicit activities, and strategies on how to investigate cryptocurrency transactions. These are the hard-earned lessons that only come from real investigative experience into criminals using cryptocurrencies in illicit ways.”

After completing the modules, law enforcement and compliance professionals will be better prepared to identify and investigate illicit activities involving cryptocurrency. In particular, students will be able to:

● understand the reasoning behind a decentralized currency

● explain the double-spend problem, 51% attacks and how to buy and use bitcoin

● reference case studies

● identify cryptocurrency evidence

● explain how the criminal element utilizes cryptocurrency

● understand how dark web marketplaces and cryptocurrencies work together

● know how analytic and forensic tools enable investigators to follow the virtual-money trail

BIG Blockchain Intelligence Group Flags OFAC-Sanctioned Bitcoin Addresses to Help Clients Mitigate Risk

BIG Blockchain Intelligence Group Inc. (“BIG”), a leading developer and provider of blockchain and cryptocurrency search, risk-scoring and data analytics tools and investigation services, has flagged the two OFAC-sanctioned bitcoin addresses in the Company’s proprietary database to help financial institutions mitigate sanctions-related risk.

● Non-compliance with sanctions requirements has cost financial institutions billions in fines and heightened government scrutiny

● BIG’s database is updated within 24 hours of new OFAC-sanctioned addresses

● Sanctioned addresses are flagged and scored so BIG’s clients can block transactions associated with the addresses

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 30, 2018) –  BIG Blockchain Intelligence Group Inc.  (CSE: BIGG) (OTC: BBKCF) (WKN: A2JSKG) (“BIG” or “the Company”), a leading developer and provider of blockchain and cryptocurrency search, risk-scoring and data analytics tools and investigation services, has flagged the two OFAC-sanctioned bitcoin addresses in the Company’s proprietary database to help financial institutions mitigate their sanctions-related risk. On November 28, 2018, for the first time, the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) publicly attributed digital currency addresses to designated sanctioned individuals. The two digital currency addresses in question are as follows: 149w62rY42aZBox8fGcmqNsXUzSStKeq8C and 1AjZPMsnmpdK2Rv9KQNfMurTXinscVro9V. To remain compliant, all organizations must block transactions from these addresses.

OFAC administers and enforces economic and trade sanctions against targeted foreign countries and regimes, terrorists, international narcotics traffickers, and other threats to the United States. Within 24 hours of OFAC issuing an updated list of sanctioned cryptocurrency addresses, BIG updates its database to flag the new addresses as being sanctioned and runs tests to confirm the detection of the newly flagged addresses within BIG’s risk-scoring and forensic investigation services.

A press release from the U.S. Department of the Treasury from November 28, 2018 stated: “Like traditional identifiers, these digital currency addresses should assist those in the compliance and digital currency communities in identifying transactions and funds that must be blocked and investigating any connections to these addresses.” While awareness of the sanctioned addresses is vital to organizations remaining compliant, it is only with such tools and services which BIG provides that financial institutions are assured of sanctions compliance related to cryptocurrency.

“For financial institutions, complying with sanctions requirements is a very significant concern,” said Teresa Anaya, BIG’s Director of Financial Institution Strategy (Certified Fraud Examiner, Certified AML Specialist, Certified Bitcoin Professional). “The cost of non-compliance for sanctions violations can result in millions of dollars in fines and remediation costs. In addition, the offending organization is faced with years of intense regulatory oversight. That’s why there is tremendous value for financial institutions to be alerted to sanctioned cryptocurrency addresses. By utilizing BIG’s BitRank Verified® risk-scoring service and/or QLUETM forensic investigation platform, financial institutions can now proactively mitigate sanctions risk.”

According to the U.S. Department of the Treasury press release from November 28, 2018, the two bitcoin addresses in question are associated with two Iran-based individuals who helped exchange bitcoin ransom payments into Iranian rial on behalf of Iranian malicious cyber actors involved with a ransomware scheme that targeted over 200 known victims, including numerous corporations and government agencies, among others. Over 7,000 transactions in bitcoin, worth millions of U.S. dollars, have been processed through the two addresses.

“This is about making the roles of financial institution compliance officers easier and more secure,” said BIG CEO, Lance Morginn. “It’s one thing to know you have to be compliant with the latest list of sanctioned cryptocurrency addresses from OFAC; it’s another to know that by utilizing BIG’s BitRank Verified® and QLUETM services, you are covered.”
