New World Inc. to Sell Elias Theodorou NFT as Part of MMA Event

Graph Blockchain Inc. (CSE: GBLC) (OTC Pink: REGRF) (FSE: RT5A) ("Graph") or (the "Company") is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary New World Inc. has signed Middleweight Mixed Martial Arts fighter ("MMA") Elias Theodorou to create non-fungible tokens ("NFTs") on the New World NFT platform.

Elias "The Spartan" Theodorou is a top-ranked MMA fighter, medical cannabis advocate, poker player, first ever male RingBoy™ and much more. In May 2021, he made history as the first sanctioned cannabis athlete in the US, granted to him in the state of Colorado via a Therapeutic Use Exemption ("TUE"). Prior to this, Elias made history in Canada, by way of another TUE exemption in the province of British Columbia, Canada when Elias defeated Matt Dwyer at the Rise Fighting Championship 6, cementing the acceptance of cannabis in the professional sports world and his name in MMA.

Cryptocurrencies have become an appealing opportunity for investors with medium to high risk tolerance. They are largely speculative, but emerging markets and new use cases are helping to realize the full utility of the asset class.
