Cryptoblox Technologies Inc.
Cryptoblox Technologies Inc.

Strong share price allows the Company to secure a strategic and accretive acquisition to fuel growth and complete its Diversified Blockchain Ecosystem

Vancouver, B.C., March 05, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CryptoBlox Technologies Inc. (the “Company” or “CryptoBlox”) (CSE: BLOX) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a share purchase agreement, dated effective March 4, 2024 (the “Agreement”), to acquire (the “Acquisition”) Blockchain Fintech Unipessoal LDA (“Blockchain Fintech”), a Portuguese corporation that develops blockchain-based financial technologies that help onboard “average users” to the blockchain economy. Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company will acquire 100% of the outstanding shares of Blockchain Fintech for 20,000,000 common shares of the Company, having a deemed value of $11,000,000.

Closing of the Acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions for a transaction of this nature, including Canadian Securities Exchange approval and the Company’s satisfaction with the results of its due diligence. The Acquisition was negotiated at arm’s length and will not result in a change of control or the creation of a control person of CryptoBlox. A finder’s fee of 1,600,000 Common Shares will be payable on closing.

Taking Advantage of Surging Share Price

On September 28, 2023, the Company announced the execution of a letter of intent with Blockchain Fintech, which contemplated a strategic partnership in which CryptoBlox would acquire the rights to Blockchain Fintech’s digital asset license then under development (the “License”). As the Company worked through due diligence, its shares underwent a 700% increase in value, which has enabled the Company, through share-based consideration, to acquire the entire Blockchain Fintech business instead of only the rights to the License. Building on the precedent set by the Acquisition, the Company hopes to be able to realize on other accretive acquisitions going forward, by taking advantage of its strong share price.

CryptoBlox’s Blockchain Ecosystem

The Company’s Blockchain Ecosystem Strategy, outlined in detail in the Company’s news release dated January 3, 2024, is comprised of three major divisions. The Company hopes that the Acquisition will complete the final piece to this vision, by strengthening and accelerating the development of the Company’s Structured Digital Asset Products & Blockchain Payments division. Through Blockchain Fintech, the Company intends to build and launch structured digital asset products and blockchain payments services within Portugal and eventually other jurisdictions.

The Acquisition will enable us to accelerate and better execute our Blockchain Ecosystem strategy” commented Akshay Sood, Chief Executive Officer of CryptoBlox.

By integrating Blockchain Fintech’s technology within our Blockchain Ecosystem, we hope to soon be positioned to launch our suite of non-custodial digital asset products,” added Mr. Sood.

Strategy Overview

The Company and Blockchain Fintech are aligned with respect to their focus on user-centric design, simplicity and market-tested functionality. The Company hopes that this focus will encourage all user types to onboard onto its products, irrespective of such user’s prior blockchain know-how. In a similar manner, the Company is exploring a number of solutions designed to help onboard both the banked and unbanked onto the blockchain economy in an efficient and user-friendly manner.

Recognizing that there is significant value in capturing the end-to-end value in blockchain transactions, the Company hopes to innovate not only within the realm of user-driven products, but also within the associated payment networks. This could involve product, application and interface layers, along with the blockchain networks used to implement transactions, being integrated within a singular focal point, which the Company hopes to one day be able to provide through its core product suite.

Blockchain Fintech is an early-stage pre-revenue company and, accordingly, has not yet prepared financial statements. Notwithstanding, through due diligence, the Company has confirmed that Blockchain Fintech has incurred in excess of $1 million in technology development costs to date.

Establishing our Structured Digital Asset Products & Blockchain Payments division has been a core part of our Blockchain Ecosystem, especially as the industry is coming up from a whirlwind of bankruptcies related to custodial digital asset platforms over the past two years. The market share of these platforms and products, which at a fundamental level give people back control and ownership, is set to continue increasing over the next five years and we want to be at the forefront of that change and adoption.” concluded Mr. Sood.
