On top of this, we are equally as excited to complete another globally significant blockchain pilot, this time with a leading energy company. Our work in the energy sector is further proof that blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology has potential to significantly transform this space. We are confident that if our Interbit platform were to be commercially deployed, it would improve energy trading efficiency in the energy trading space.

By continuing our work in the finance space and adapting our technology to the energy sector, as well as having established our blockchain solutions in the gaming sector, we are demonstrating the versatility and robustness of our Interbit settlement and trading platform. We are working to increase Q1 2017 revenues as compared to Q4 2016 and take the next step towards commercialization of our Interbit platform.”
