NEW YORK, NY, Dec. 28, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Weyland Tech, Inc. (OTCQX: WEYL) ("Weyland" or "Company"), a provider of mobile business applications, announced today that it has entered into a memorandum of understanding with TKS Ventures (dba Tokes Platform) to bring blockchain technology to Weyland’s platforms.

“I am excited to announce that we have reached an initial understanding with TKS Ventures (“TKS”) to bring the technology behind their Tokes platform to Weyland’s applications. There are solid underlying dynamics between Weyland and TKS that extend far beyond this initial partnership. The overarching fit is that Weyland’s AtozPay will provide a digital wallet and the TKS enterprise resource planning and supply chain platform provide superior blockchain based security for the order processing steps in the transaction process. Additionally, TKS’s combination of a utility token and seed-to-sale tracking platform will provide a substantial benefit to our online-to-offline (“O2O”) initiative. Further building blockchain and cryptocurrency capabilities into AtozPay and CreateApp will provide complete flexibility in meeting the needs of diverse communities across global markets,” noted Weyland CEO, Brent Suen.

“The Tokes team is developing systems for one of the toughest regulatory environments in the world; we believe the robustness of their end-to-end supply chain managements systems for the cannabis market can be repurposed for retail logistics in a variety of industries CreateApp serves. The mobile first countries Weyland focuses on have skipped a number of legacy technologies as they develop and will be early adopters of blockchain technologies that will be introduced,” continued Mr. Suen.

TKS CEO Michael Wagner commented, “The Tokes token and platform has initially been focused on the cannabis space, but we have always anticipated that the TKS blockchain, ERP, and merchant gateway systems that we have been developing would be open to use in other product verticals and they have been designed with that in mind. We are pleased that the team at Weyland agrees and we look forward to developing robust solutions with them for those global markets.”

Under the terms of the memorandum, TKS and Weyland’s final agreement will support the purposes of:

(1) Applying and utilizing blockchain technology for payment and banking layer solutions in the unbanked demographic prevalent in Weyland's SE Asia markets;

(2) Jointly developing logistics and fulfillment solutions via the blockchain that allows for more secure tracking, compliance of transactions along the supply chain in various industries;

(3) Combining WEYL's current mobile marketplace solutions which include e-wallet and other fiat currency-based payment services with TKS’s Merchant Gateway services facilitating a two-way conversion of paper currency in jurisdictions where that is allowed; and

(4) Expanding the use of the TKS cryptocurrency into various non-cannabis industry applications by virtue of Weyland's other payment solutions.

Mr. Suen concluded, “Weyland has been focused this year on enhancing our successful CreateApp platform with transactional capabilities. These efforts will combine for substantial revenue growth next year. We look forward to bringing these solutions to market in the new year.”
