Global Blockchain Tech­nolo­gies plans spinout, X2 buy

Stockwatch Daily - - FINANCE - Mr. Shi­dan Gouran re­ports

GLOBAL BLOCKCHAIN Tech­nolo­gies Corp. will cre­ate a sub­sidiary en­tity for its en­ter­prise and ex­change ac­tiv­i­ties with a view to un­lock­ing their value through a spinout of crit­i­cal mass as­sets and merg­ing its re­main­ing me­dia and en­ter­tain­ment in­vest­ments and projects with those of X2 Games Corp.

X2 Games is an in­de­pen­dent games pub­lisher for cut­ting-edge games that in­te­grate blockchain tech­nol­ogy and cryp­tocur­rency into the user’s game ex­pe­ri­ence. Its busi­ness model is build­ing mul­ti­player gam­ing ex­pe­ri­ences, pro­vid­ing never-been-seen-be­fore de­sign and an­i­ma­tion ser­vices and in­te­grat­ing tech­nolo­gies such as aug­mented/al­ter­na­tive/vir­tual re­al­ity into video games. X2 Games uses new tech­nolo­gies to cre­ate unique game ex­pe­ri­ences for con­ven­tional and ex­per­i­men­tal plat­forms. With the in­dus­try poised to hit $138-bil­lion (U.S.) by year-end, X2 Games is po­si­tion­ing it­self to be a world leader in the next gen­er­a­tion of gam­ing.

The god­fa­ther of the video game in­dus­try, Nolan Bush­nell, cre­ated X2 Games, which is fo­cused on in­no­va­tive gam­ing tech­nolo­gies. Atari, founded over 40 years ago, gave the world the first block­buster video game. He later spear­headed the Atari 2600 con­sole, which rev­o­lu­tion­ized the home gam­ing mar­ket. The man­age­ment of X2 Games also in­cludes Zai Or­tiz, pres­i­dent, co-founder and chief creative of­fi­cer, and an ac­com­plished dig­i­tal an­i­ma­tor who cre­ated Iron Man’s Jarvis sys­tem holo­grams seen in Marvel movies.

Postac­qui­si­tion, Global Blockchain Tech­nolo­gies will be fo­cused on ap­pli­ca­tions of blockchain tech­nol­ogy to the video game, e-sports and en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­tries.

Mr. Bush­nell will be­come the co-chair­man and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of Global Blockchain Tech­nolo­gies.
