Datametrex and Bitnine Global Announce Closing of Private Placement for Joint Venture Graph Blockchain Limited

Toronto, Ontario, CANADA

TORONTO, Jan. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Datametrex AI Limited (the “Company” or “Datametrex”) (TSXV:DM) (FSE:D4G) and its San Francisco based joint venture partner Bitnine Global Inc. (“Bitnine”) are pleased to announce the closing of a non-brokered private placement (the “Financing”) for Graph Blockchain Limited (“Graph” or the “Joint Venture”). As a result of increased demand for the Financing, Graph increased the size of the offering from $1,000,000 to approximately $3,500,000. Pursuant to the terms of the Financing, an aggregate of 35,253,764 common shares in the capital of Graph were issued at a price of $0.10 per common share.

The use of proceeds from the Financing will provide Graph with the funding to continue to build its “Graph Blockchain” solutions for corporations and government agencies. Graph is developing a prototype for a utility company to analyze electric vehicle charging stations. Graph is also developing the blockchain component dedicated to the medical cannabis industry.

The graph database and blockchain technology being developed by the Joint Venture provides a unique way of organizing, analyzing and displaying blockchain transactional data in real-time. The Graph Database technology being developed by the Joint Venture processes blockchain data up to 1,000 times faster than traditional methods from 7 transactions per second (“TPS”) to 7,000 TPS. It is believed to be one of the most effective technologies to store, manage and present blockchain transactions specifically in peer-to-peer networks making it ideal for fintech, banking and other mission critical environments.

“We have deep domain expertise in Graph Databases and its inherent value in analyzing and presenting data much faster than traditional table based data structures. Bringing this process to the various private and public blockchain platforms is the mission and mandate of the JV, where we can increase performance of the blockchain and data presentation layer considerably,” says CheolSun Kang, CEO of Bitnine.      

“Having to upsize this Financing is a great vote of confidence for the Joint Venture. We look forward to moving forward with our planned spin-out of Graph as previously announced. Graph Blockchain technology is truly compelling for the industry, by not only improving transactional blockchain performance but by presenting data through graphs which is more effective than traditional relational databases,” said Andrew Ryu, CEO and Chairman of the Company.
