VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GLOBAL BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGIES CORP. (CSE: BLOC.U) (FSE: BWSP) (OTC Pink: BLKCF) ("BLOC", or the "Company") provides a snapshot of X2 Games Corp.’s (“X2 Games”), a wholly owned subsidiary, keynote speech at the Global Alexa Conference 2019.

At the Global Alexa Conference in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Nolan Bushnell, CEO of X2 Games and founder of Atari and Chuck E. Cheese’s delivered a keynote speech before 500+ attendees highlighting the role that immersive technology will play in future game development and explained the processes behind the creation of X2 Games’ first product, St. Noire. At the end of the conference, X2 Games was honored with the Best-In-Show Gold Award.

Together with Zai Ortiz, the President, Co-Founder, and Chief Creative Officer of X2 Games, Bushnell made a presentation titled “Alexa and Entertainment: Alexa’s Ground-Breaking Opportunity”.

Bushnell and Ortiz used the conference to explain the background behind X2 Games’ latest production, St. Noire; an interactive board game in which the player takes part in a murder mystery. Alexa describes St. Noire as a “voice-activated murder mystery game that challenges you to solve a murder by interviewing a full cast of characters, using Me”.

“You can look at games like Pong as being clear to the left, and movies being clear to the right,” Bushnell explained. “There’s a whole page in between that’s part game, part narrative, part movie. We think there’s a very vacant area that we can fill with some of the weirdest stuff you’ve ever seen.”

Moving forward, Ortiz hopes to create experiences that are even more immersive. He points to Bandersnatch, the interactive episode of the Netflix series Black Mirror, as evidence that people are excited about the potential for these kinds of experiences and says that using your voice makes for controls that are more natural than holding a remote. “Right now, the Amazon Echo is a powerful device that has what I call the bones to create on top of,” he said. “And that’s what I really like.”

Speech given by Bushnell and Ortiz is already being recognized in the press; the prominent CNET Magazine has already featured X2 Games, which can be accessed here. The website boasted 169.5 million visits in December 2018, making it the 277th-most-visited website in the world in that month. Within the technology news sector, it was the most visited in the world for that same period. 1

In his speech, Bushnell extolled creativity and innovation in game design. “I’ve always liked to do things a little weird,” he said. “It seems like trying to do new things is really hard.” Bushnell, a veteran of the video games industry, sees the future of gaming in AI-led developments.

Nolan Bushnell, the CEO of X2 Games, previously founded Atari Inc. and the Chuck E. Cheese’s Pizza Time Theatre chain, sold for $1.3 billion USD in 2014 to Apollo Global Management. The British Academy of Film and Television awarded Bushnell their Academy Fellowship. He was named one of Newsweek’s “50 People Who Changed America” and was one of the first inductees into the Video Game Hall of Fame. Zai Ortiz is a visual effects expert who has worked on films such as Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Tron: Legacy, and Iron Man.

The Alexa Conference

The Alexa Conference took place 15-17 January 2019, in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The worldwide gathering of the Alexa development community brought together executives, developers, entrepreneurs, strategists, and marketers – all the roles involved in conceiving and creating the voice experiences. Amazon was the 2019 Platinum Sponsor (as well as a presenter) of The Alexa Conference. Some of the companies sponsoring or presenting included: LEGO, Magic & Company, EPB Fiber Optics, Applause, Novel Effect, and Audioburst.

The Conference featured The Alexa World Fair, the first exhibit hall dedicated to Alexa-oriented products, and The Alexa Awards, the largest awards program for Alexa development and businesses, which honors some of the innovators and pioneers within the community.

Bradley Metrock, Executive Producer of The Alexa Conference, said “The Alexa Conference is driving voice innovation forward, along with associated areas like AI, machine learning, smart speakers and more.”

St. Noire

X2 Games has announced plans to release six new voice-controlled, Alexa-centric games in 2019. The first of these will be St. Noire, and will arrive exclusively on Amazon by March. Along with St. Noire, X2 has five other games slated for release in 2019 – some for children, some for families, and some for adults.

As the first immersive Alexa board game, St. Noire features voice acting and immersive sound design. Users will use a board and cards to play, in addition to Alexa.

An unlimited number of players can take part, and participants use Alexa to interview suspects and witnesses (who have the ability to lie to players) to explore six main storylines, all searching for the murderer in the mysterious town of St. Noire. The game is randomized each run-through, and a built-in timer limits the time that players have to discover the murderer’s identity. A full play through is estimated to take between fifteen and thirty minutes.

St. Noire was developed in collaboration with the Alexa Games team, who provided access to engineering and game testing resources.

The game is expected to be released in early 2019, and is projected to retail at between $30 and $40.

The Gaming Market

In 2018, the global gaming market was estimated to be worth $137.9 billion USD. By 2021 that is expected to increase to $180.1 billion USD. 2

It is estimated that by 2019, almost half of American households, approximately 60 million, will own a smart speaker.3 In a survey of users of AI speakers, 25% said that they use AI-powered speakers to play games, and 65% said that they would not go back to life without a smart speaker. 81% said that they were open to new skills and features being introduced to their speakers.4

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GLOBAL BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGIES CORP. (CSE: BLOC.U) (FSE: BWSP) (OTC Pink: BLKCF) ("BLOC", or the "Company") announces its future strategy following the acquisition of X2 Games Corp. (“X2 Games” or “X2”) on December 17, 2018.

The Acquisition:

As of December 17, 2018, BLOC acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of X2 Games (the “X2 Games Shares”) (the “Transaction”). The Transaction introduced the leadership of Nolan Bushnell, co-founder of Atari and Chuck E. Cheese’s, and Hollywood creative director and visual effects visionary Zai Ortiz to BLOC’s operations, as BLOC pivots to focus on gaming-related projects.

As a result of the Transaction, BLOC acquired all intellectual property rights to X2 Games’ current game projects, including the digital interactive games for Amazon Alexa. One of these games, titled St. Noire, has a pre-release date set for early 2019, with three other Amazon Alexa games set to be launched in 2019. A trailer of St. Noire can be seen at http://www.st-noire.com/amazon-alexa.

Strategic Planning

BLOC and X2 Games have initiated a comprehensive strategy to optimize BLOC’s assets towards gaming, eSports and AI. BLOC’s assets will be leveraged to support X2’s pursuit of disruptive gaming interfaces.

As a result of this new strategy, X2 Games will become the main business focus of BLOC, supported by its synergistic assets portfolio. BLOC believes this is the best way to leverage the experience and leadership that Nolan Bushnell and Zai Ortiz bring to the Company.

X2 Games Co-Founder, Chairman and CEO Nolan Bushnell has stated that, “This transition will help X2’s goal to revolutionize gaming and merge it with cinema and AI in exciting ways. At X2 Games we are always looking to find avenues for gaming in existing and emerging platforms. A primary component of our strategy is to tailor our products to the Smart-speaker, AI, mobile, AR and Interactive TV markets and gamify this space.”

X2’s strategy will also explore the following sectors within the gaming market in the next 3 years:

  • Dynamic Cinema
  • Arcade
  • Mobile
  • VR / AR/ MR
  • Geo Adventure
  • Mediated Board Games
  • Streaming
  • Esports
  • Immersive Theater

Future Initiative

X2 Games has an extended pipeline of Alexa based games in production.

Following the release of St. Noire, the Company will release further games stemming from Nolan Bushnell’s back catalogue of unreleased games and intellectual property.

Zai Ortiz, Chief Creative Officer, Co Founder and President of X2 Games commented, “Gamification will revolutionize the industry in how we think about gaming, and what we think of as a game. Future of interactive games is the merging of cinema, gaming, and AI – X2 is well positioned to take advantage of this rapidly growing industry.”

Amazon has sold more than 100 million devices with Alexa integrated smart assistance. By 2020, it is estimated that up to 75% of US households will have a smart-speaker. X2 Games will pursue this sector in the long term as it observes a large market opportunity to satisfy consumer demand in smart-speaker technologies. 1 2

The global smart speaker market size is expected to reach revenues around $19 billion by 2023, growing at an impressive CAGR of approximately 31% 2018–2023. 3

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GLOBAL BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGIES CORP. (CSE: BLOC.U) (FSE: BWSP) (OTC Pink: BLKCF) ("BLOC", or the "Company") announces its future strategy following the acquisition of X2 Games Corp. (“X2 Games” or “X2”) on December 17, 2018.

The Acquisition:

As of December 17, 2018, BLOC acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of X2 Games (the “X2 Games Shares”) (the “Transaction”). The Transaction introduced the leadership of Nolan Bushnell, co-founder of Atari and Chuck E. Cheese’s, and Hollywood creative director and visual effects visionary Zai Ortiz to BLOC’s operations, as BLOC pivots to focus on gaming-related projects.

As a result of the Transaction, BLOC acquired all intellectual property rights to X2 Games’ current game projects, including the digital interactive games for Amazon Alexa. One of these games, titled St. Noire, has a pre-release date set for early 2019, with three other Amazon Alexa games set to be launched in 2019. A trailer of St. Noire can be seen at http://www.st-noire.com/amazon-alexa.

Strategic Planning

BLOC and X2 Games have initiated a comprehensive strategy to optimize BLOC’s assets towards gaming, eSports and AI. BLOC’s assets will be leveraged to support X2’s pursuit of disruptive gaming interfaces.

As a result of this new strategy, X2 Games will become the main business focus of BLOC, supported by its synergistic assets portfolio. BLOC believes this is the best way to leverage the experience and leadership that Nolan Bushnell and Zai Ortiz bring to the Company.

X2 Games Co-Founder, Chairman and CEO Nolan Bushnell has stated that, “This transition will help X2’s goal to revolutionize gaming and merge it with cinema and AI in exciting ways. At X2 Games we are always looking to find avenues for gaming in existing and emerging platforms. A primary component of our strategy is to tailor our products to the Smart-speaker, AI, mobile, AR and Interactive TV markets and gamify this space.”

X2’s strategy will also explore the following sectors within the gaming market in the next 3 years:

  • Dynamic Cinema
  • Arcade
  • Mobile
  • VR / AR/ MR
  • Geo Adventure
  • Mediated Board Games
  • Streaming
  • Esports

Future Initiative

Following the release of St. Noire, the Company will release further games stemming from Nolan Bushnell’s back catalogue of unreleased games and intellectual property.

Zai Ortiz, Chief Creative Officer, Co Founder and President of X2 Games commented, “Gamification will revolutionize the industry in how we think about gaming, and what we think of as a game. Future of interactive games is the merging of cinema, gaming, and AI – X2 is well positioned to take advantage of this rapidly growing industry.”

Amazon has sold more than 100 million devices with Alexa integrated smart assistance. By 2020, it is estimated that up to 75% of US households will have a smart-speaker. X2 Games will pursue this sector in the long term as it observes a large market opportunity to satisfy consumer demand in smart-speaker technologies. 1 2

The global smart speaker market size is expected to reach revenues around $19 billion by 2023, growing at an impressive CAGR of approximately 31% 2018–2023. 3

(CSE: BLOC.U) (FSE: BWSP) (OTC: 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 press releases dated October 10, 2018, and December 3, 2018, BLOC has acquired 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 introduced 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 issued 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.

The Singularity Exchange is introducing a crowdsale platform which, along with the exchange itself, will have an official launch date of Tuesday, January 8, 2019. This date will also be the beginning of the first crowdsale to be hosted on the exchange. To provide a unified trading solution, BLOC has also adjusted Laser’s approach to better suit its utility as the backbone network of Singularity’s custody solution. These changes are made in the interest of putting focus on projects with immediate revenue-generation potential.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GLOBAL BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGIES CORP. (CSE: BLOC.U) (FSE: BWSP) (OTC: BLKCF) ("BLOC" or the "Company") has recently finalized some important milestones of its projects Singularity Exchange, a decentralized crypto asset trading platform, and Laser, a second-layer interoperability network for blockchains. These projects have undergone some changes, as a result of both the shift in the crypto markets and developments related to the projects themselves. Despite the market shift, both projects are currently on track to perform as anticipated, due to the impact that they will have on the blockchain ecosystem, as well as the broader financial markets.

The Company has developed a crowdsale platform to be part of the Singularity Exchange, which will be for the sale of utility tokens, which includes asset types such as network access tokens and corporate loyalty tokens. The first crowdsale that will be held on Singularity is for the AMR token, the underlying crypto asset of Ammbr, a blockchain-based decentralized wireless mesh network project that BLOC’s sister company Global Blockchain Mining Corp. (“FORK”) recently announced its involvement with. This crowdsale will begin on Tuesday, January 8, 2019, which will also be the official launch date of the Singularity Exchange. Further information will be provided in a later press release.

Moreover, BLOC is tailoring Singularity’s approach to the needs of crypto asset traders by making it a “meta exchange” for other DEX (decentralized exchange) platforms, in addition to providing custodianship, making Singularity a unified trading solution. At its launch date, Singularity will support Stellar’s decentralized exchange, with support for Ethereum’s 0x DEX network to be integrated by the end of Q1 2019, and several more to be added by the end of 2019.

With respect to custodianship, Singularity’s custodianship platform will be a decentralized network by itself, using BLOC’s Laser protocol. For simplicity, custodianship on Singularity will be centralized at the outset, though it will become decentralized in steps. Originally, Laser was built to be a second-layer protocol for underlying blockchain networks to interoperate with one another, having its own native token as a way of adding more value to the network. In the interest of focusing on projects which will generate immediate revenue, such as the Singularity Exchange and the Dubai-based trade finance project (announced August 16, 2018), BLOC has elected to not proceed with creating a native token for the Laser protocol.

Nevertheless, Laser will be able to function exactly as originally planned, operating as a second-layer network that enables interoperability between the blockchain networks of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Steem, EOS, Bitshares, and Stellar, further providing the option of near-instant and anonymous transaction abilities. Laser will also have initial support for Nuvocash, a blockchain network for decentralized social communities that FORK has recently been commissioned to improve on for a UK-based social network operator. It is still intended for the Cayman-based entity Laser Technologies Corp. to act as a governing body for service node operators on Laser’s network.

“Despite the recent drop in market cap, 2018 has been a great year for blockchain and crypto,” said Shidan Gouran, President and CEO of the Company. “There may have been ups and downs in the crypto market, but it remains clear that there is a persisting interest in cryptocurrencies as a more advanced way of transacting value, as well as in blockchain networks as a decentralized form of governance. Our decisions relating to the Singularity Exchange and the Laser protocol reflect this, in that we are not focusing so much on crypto assets themselves; but rather, on ways in which their utility can be maximized. Right now, there are more than 2,070 different cryptocurrencies - and collectively, their growth potential is very much limited by unsophisticated exchange solutions that do not foster long-term growth. That long-term growth is our objective with both Singularity and Laser, and with Singularity’s launch just over three weeks away, there are some exciting developments to be seen in Q1 2019.”

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.
  2. All holdings of Laser Technologies Corp., Cayman Islands subsidiary of BLOC.
  3. All rights, work product, and assets related to the development of the Singularity digital asset and forex exchange.

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.

As the legal and administrative processes relating to BLOC’s acquisition of X2 carry on, the Company’s board has elected to defer the determination of the definitive Record Date for purposes of participating in the spin out of certain assets, until the date is officially agreed upon between BLOC and X2. Once this agreement has been reached, the corresponding date will be announced by way of press release, among other channels. The acquisition’s roadmap remains on track with a signed letter of intent between BLOC and X2. Since its initial announcement, the acquisition has been very positively received by BLOC shareholders.

VANCOUVER, B.C., Nov. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GLOBAL BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGIES CORP. (CSE: BLOC.U) (FSE: BWSP) (OTC: BLKCF) ("BLOC" or the "Company") announces to its investors that the date (the “Record Date”) at which shareholders of BLOC will become entitled to participate in the spin out of certain enterprise and exchange activities, as announced on October 11, 2018, has been deferred pending the finalization of a definitive closing date that will result in X2 Games Corp. (“X2”) being acquired by BLOC. At this time, BLOC and X2, as well as their respective professional advisors, are completing definitive documentation and obtaining requisite approvals for the Transaction. A new Record Date will be set upon completion of these tasks, and this date will be announced along with corresponding details of the finalized acquisition by way of press release, as well as the use of other media and IR channels.

The acquisition is continuing as planned, with a letter of intent having been signed by both BLOC and X2. Both companies are also in discussions about the synergies between their assets and personnel, which has revealed even more opportunities for disruptive and innovative blockchain-based gaming developments. The acquisition has garnered much positive attention from the business news media and shareholders alike since its announcement on October 11, 2018.

“Even before the acquisition has been finalized, we’re already doing great things with X2”, said Shidan Gouran, President and CEO of the Company. “Our team and their team have collaborated and discovered even more potential from this acquisition than we had anticipated at the outset. Since our announcement of the acquisition attracted a lot of attention from our shareholders, we have gotten several inquiries about the Record Date. Our board has decided to defer the finalization of the Record Date for the time being as the acquisition is finalized, thus giving our investors even more flexibility to plan their holdings of BLOC shares to ensure they receive the desired participation in the spinout.”

As another development of BLOC’s exchange projects, the Company is pleased to announce to its shareholders that Hyperion has secured a partnership with Stellar to allow Stellar-based crypto assets to be traded on the Hyperion exchange. This will broaden the scope of Hyperion’s abilities as the first advanced security token exchange in North America, making it an even more impactful project in the emerging area of blockchain technology.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GLOBAL BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGIES CORP. (CSE: BLOC, BLOC.CN, BLOC.CNX) (FSE: BWSP) (OTC: BLKCF) ("BLOC" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Hyperion Crypto Exchange Inc. (“Hyperion”) has entered into an agreement with InterStellar to provide support for Stellar-based assets on the Hyperion exchange. Earlier this year, BLOC made a $5 MM investment into Hyperion in exchange for 12.82% of its total issued and outstanding share capital. Hyperion was co-founded by Michael Zavet, a seasoned fintech and real estate development entrepreneur, and Shidan Gouran, President and CEO of BLOC.

Hyperion facilitates the trade of digital assets (to include cryptocurrencies) on an SEC-licensed alternative trading system (ATS), an arrangement that it has attained through a strategic investment in the Delaware Board of Trade (DBOT). Through this same arrangement, Hyperion also operates under a license as a broker-dealer (BD). It will be the first advanced security token exchange in North America, bringing the power of blockchain technology to the trade of securities.

Stellar is a trading protocol for issuing, transferring, and exchanging digital assets of any kind. Digital assets that can be traded on Stellar include cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, fiat currencies such as the US dollar, and commodity assets such as gold. As the demand for crypto asset trading has been sustained since the cryptocurrency boom of late 2017, platforms such as Stellar have seen substantial interest from investors, as a method of transacting assets with the efficiency and security of a blockchain network.

With Hyperion offering support for Stellar-based assets, it will broaden the scope of tradeable assets on Hyperion, beyond the security tokens and crypto assets already slated to be listed on the exchange. Further, Stellar’s existing user base and brand cachet will lend themselves well to Hyperion as it makes its entrance into the marketplace as a new exchange. With the Company’s equity in Hyperion, BLOC shareholders stand to benefit from this development on any increase in Hyperion’s value.

“Hyperion partnering with Interstellar is one of the best things that could have happened, not just for BLOC and Hyperion, but also for the crypto space,” said Shidan Gouran, President and CEO of the Company. “Regulation has been a serious hurdle for this industry. Our team at Hyperion took a shrewd approach to operating under an ATS license, which gives investors trading on Hyperion legal protections that they wouldn’t get on most other exchanges. That is a very big win for the crypto market in general, and for us and our shareholders as investors in Hyperion.”

BLOC Chairman Steve Nerayoff added, “It has taken some time for the crypto markets to mature to the point that crypto assets can be traded on an SEC-licensed exchange. Shidan and Michael did a great job of leading Hyperion to being just steps away from bringing blockchain-based trading of securities and other digitized assets to the mainstream market. We will start to see a lot more capital coming into this space as a result. We all thought that 2018 was a dynamic year for crypto… but Hyperion will play a significant role in making 2019 even more dynamic.”
