OMAAT joins ConsenSys Blockchain Social Impact for their planned ICO in Q4 18
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Block One Capital Inc. (TSXV: BLOK, OTCQB: BKPPF, Frankfurt: ES3) (the “Company” or “Block One”), 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.
OMAAT is specialized in developing technologies and infrastructure to help save and protect endangered lands by the gamification of online conservation efforts, achieved by using a patented virtual grid system and tokenization method, one square meter at a time. Revenue streams are generated by token sales, product licensing, global event and festival sponsorship opportunities and creation and management of corporate social responsibility services for medium to large enterprises. The technology can also be licensed to tokenize real estate and development projects.
