MarketNewsUpdates.com News Commentary
Blockchain and digital currencies are back on the radar with more regulation in place and with solutions emerging to solve some of the past challenges, cryptocurrencies are gaining acceptance as a store of value and medium of exchange. The current wave of mainstream adoption is very much about improving cryptocurrencies as an alternative payment method rather than as an investment asset. Increased regulation, as long as it is done with the cooperation of industry professionals and with the aim of de-risking the broader market, will hasten blockchain adoption by large enterprise users and reassure institutional investors. Active companies today include: Block One Capital Inc. (TSX-V:BLOK) (OTC:BKPPF), Bitcoin Investment Trust (OTC:GBTC), Global Blockchain Technologies Corp (OTC:BLKCF) (CSE:BLOC), Fiserv, Inc. (NASDAQ:FISV), Dmg Blockchain Solutions Inc (OTC:DMGGF) (TSX-V:DMGI).
Block One Capital Inc. (TSXV:BLOK.V) (OTCQB:BKPPF) BREAKING NEWS: Block One Capital, an investment company focused on early stage and high growth opportunities in the blockchain sector, is pleased to provide the following corporate update.
OMAAT (One Meter at a Time) - The first half of 2018 showed tremendous progress in partnership deals and technology development for OMAAT. The Dance for One Meter (D41M) initiative is being received with enthusiasm in the live events industry on a global level. D41M has signed agreements with three large scale clubbing and event promoters in multiple territories (Ushuaia Ibiza-Europe, RPM Presents-New York, RMD Group- San Diego). D41M is expected to be operational on approximately 360 individual events this year.
In July 2018, OMAAT entered into an agreement with Token Foundry Securities LLC (an affiliate of ConsenSys) to undertake an equity offering of up to US$2,000,000 at an anticipated US$10,000,000 pre-money valuation. Block Capital plans to participate in this capital raise for an additional investment of US$300,000.
Block One believes its investment in OMAAT reflects strong value creation for its shareholders as the original USD$500,000 participation is now valued at close to USD $2,5000,000, reflecting a return of nearly 5 times on its original investment.
OMAAT has joined ConsenSys Blockchain Social Impact Coalition and was an invited participant in the Token Foundry European road show. OMMAT has also entered into an agreement to have Token Foundry develop, market and launch OMAAT's ERC-721 non-fungible Rainforest Game Token.
