Graph Blockchain Inc. (CSE: GBLC) (OTC Pink: REGRF) ("Graph" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that further to its press release dated June 1, 2021, the Company has closed its acquisition of art-focused non-fungible tokens ("NFT") business New World Inc. ("New World").

NFT's are unique files that live on a blockchain and are able to verify ownership of a work of digital art. Buyers get limited rights to display the digital artwork they represent, but they are also buying rights to a digital asset they may be able to resell later.

Pursuant to the Share Exchange Agreement between the Company, New World, and the shareholders of New World, the purchase price of $6,000,000 was satisfied through the issuance of an aggregate of 46,153,846 units (the "Consideration Units") in the capital of the Company, at a deemed price of $0.13 per Consideration Unit with each Consideration Unit comprised of one common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant allows the holder to acquire an additional common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.18 per share during the 24-month period following closing.

In addition, the shareholders of New World can earn additional bonus milestone based payments of up to $13,000,000, also payable in Consideration Units based on achieving minimum net revenue of $1,500,000 as at the end of 2021, with a minimum net profit percentage of 25% and achieving minimum net revenue of $6,000,000 as at the end of 2022 with a minimum net profit percentage of 50%. The shareholders of New World can also earn an additional 15,000,000 common shares of the Company, based on New World entering into contractual relationships with a minimum of 100 artists by December 31, 2021.

"Graph's acquisition of New World gives us exposure to the quality art-focused NFT market, one of the fastest growing segments of the art world. NFT's provide a new platform for artists to digitally showcase their work," said Paul Haber, Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

"The attraction of NFT art is that it provides both artists and collectors entry to each other that did not exist 10 months ago. Previously obscure artists are seeing sales soar while amateur collectors grow their collections," said Andrew Ryu, Chairman of the Company.

Mike Winkelmann, a US-based digital artist, recently sold an NFT photo piece entitled Everydays: the First 5000 Days for $69 million in March through Christie's Auction House, becoming the third-highest price paid for a work done by an artist who is still alive.

New World has built this platform and has already signed such notable artists as Diogo Snow, who has produced numerous pieces for celebrity clients including Drake, and Fetty Wap, an American rapper, singer and songwriter who has over 6.5 million Instagram Followers, as well as many others.

7 Key Findings About Australia's Cryptocurrency Market

Cryptocurrency is gaining momentum, finally moving from solely the hard drives and cloud storages of the techies and into the consciousnesses (and portfolios) of the common man.

Fittingly, for something literally named hidden money, cryptocurrency remains a largely unknown property for many people despite its increasing ubiquity. Is this new phenomenon here to stay as a valid means of transaction? Will it replace money entirely? Or will it only replace the 1990s’ dotcom bubble as a thing that rapidly expanded before bursting?

A recent (2022) Gemini report called Global State of Crypto Report, provides valuable insights about the field of cryptocurrency. Here, the Investing News Network dives into the report to give an overview of its findings about the cryptocurrency market in Australia.

Crypto Crash: Is Crypto a Bad Investment?

After a meteoric rise, it’s been a punishing year for cryptocurrencies as 2022 proves to be more than just a bear market for digital assets. Does this crash mean crypto is a bad investment?
