BlockMint aims to acquire NFTs from multiple genres (including art, sports, music, etc) to create a diverse portfolio of NFTs in support of the upcoming release of an upgraded version of its distributed crypto-miner browser “Minter” that will have a new feature which will allow users to exchange their earned cryptocurrency for a fractional ownership in a NFT from the BlockMint portfolio. The current version of Minter is available to download at getminter.com.

BlockMint’s CEO, Nelson Ijih commented: “We are excited to have BlockMint participate in its first NFT auction this week at Sotheby’s, one of the top auction houses in the world. BlockMint aims to build a NFT portfolio to support the new feature of our Minter browser, which will allow users to choose to either reduce their carbon footprint or participate in the rapidly emerging market for NFTs.

A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unit of data on a blockchain where each NFT can represent a unique digital item and thus they are not interchangeable. NFTs can represent digital files such as art, audio, video and other forms of creative work. While the digital files themselves are infinitely reproducible, the NFTs representing them are tracked on their underlying blockchains and provide buyers with proof of ownership.

Once released, the upgraded Minter browser will allow users to use their spare computing power to mine cryptocurrencies to earn either: (i) carbon credits to help offset their carbon footprint; or (ii) fractional ownership in a NFT. The updated version of Minter is expected to be available for download in May 2021 for use on desktops and laptops with a Windows operating system. Support for additional operating systems (MacOS, Linux) will be added later this year.

About BlockMint Technologies Inc.

BlockMint, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Blockmint (USA) Technologies Inc., develops distributed systems and networks that enable a more decentralized deployment of blockchain-based applications such as cryptocurrency mining. The Company is currently working on an updated version of its distributed crypto-miner browser, Minter, which will have a user-friendly, built-in dashboard where a user can control the amount (if any) of computing power on his/her computer that will be used for mining to earn carbon credits or fractional ownership in a NFT.

24-Month Revenue Guidance

Pursuant to the technology partnership agreement dated February 5, 2021 between the Company, the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary IoniX Pro Battery Technologies Inc. (“IoniX Pro“), and Daymak (the “Technology Partnership Agreement“), the Company has the first exclusive right to provide battery products to all of Daymak’s products. For further details on the agreement, please refer to the announcement on February 8, 2021. While the batteries themselves are normally sold at prices resulting in margins of approximately 10%, all EVs produced by Daymak are anticipated to be powered by the customized IoniX Pro Lithium-Ion battery pack, which will be equipped with the Company’s patented AI-powered battery management system (“BMS“).  The BMS will carry higher margins than the batteries and therefore the Company anticipates blended margins of approximately 25%.

Daymak estimates that over 30% of its production cost will be in the battery systems, including the BMS.  Since signing the Technology Partnership Agreement, the Company has already received purchase orders for $2 million dollars worth of battery systems, for just its existing LEV vehicles.

On April 6, Daymak made a guidance news announcement. For a full copy of Daymak’s press release, please follow this link: news release dated April 6, 2021.

Given Daymak’s recent announcement, the Company projects that it could generate revenues of up to $300 million in the next 24 months, from the Daymak partnership. The Company estimates that the costs associated in generating this revenue will be $225 million, resulting in profits of up to $75 million. The Company expects to see significantly higher margins with their retail products compared to the margins from the sales related to the Daymak partnership. The margins associated with Daymak’s projections are lower since Daymak is a partner and the sales to Daymak will be at wholesale (as opposed to retail) prices.

“Investors have been calling and asking for clarification on our revenue plans. I am pleased to articulate and demonstrate the importance and magnitude of this very beneficial relationship we have built with Daymak.” Commented Bryson Goodwin President and CEO.

“If you look at the EV trends over the last three years combined with clean energy initiatives going on across the globe, Daymak believes it is in a prime position to achieve superior sales,” commented Daymak CEO, Aldo Baiocchi.

According to EV-Volumes, EV Sales Volumes have been growing at over 100% month-over-month growth since July of last year.

The Company also continues to build its sales and distribution networks for its line of IoniX Pro Energy Storage Systems (ESS), including:

  • the Home SmartWall, for which it expects deliveries to commence in Q4 of 2021;
  • the TITAN EnergyCore, for which it expects deliveries to commence in Q3 of 2021;
  • the RV Freedom, for which it expects deliveries Q3 of 2021; and
  • the EV Smart Charger, for which it expects deliveries to commence in Q1 of 2022.

The Company also continues to develop blockchain platforms, which will serve as the backend infrastructure for the entire IoniX Pro product line up and will be customizable for use for third parties.

“The demand for our IoniX products has been extremely encouraging given they were all launched within the last 3 months,” commented IoniX Pro’s Chief Innovation Officer, Robert Abenante.  “However, this recent partnership with Daymak has been particularly exciting given the rapid increase in orders for our battery systems.” continued Mr. Abenante.

The sales and revenue projections are subject to the forward-looking information and risk factors included below. See: “Forward Looking Information” and “Risk Factors”.

The Daymak EV line is anticipated to be ready to hit the streets starting in 2022 with Terra Ebike and Tectus Mobility followed by the Spiritus in 2023. For more information on pre-orders or to see a live counter of pre-order sales, please visit www.daymakavvenire.com.

Corporate Updates and Highlights

The Company is pleased to announce that its IoniX Pro RV Freedom battery, and IoniX Pro SmartWall have begun the manufacturing stage, and both products are expected to have the first versions landed in Canada by Summer 2021.

The Company is pleased to announce that Mr. Robert Abenante will be assuming the role of Managing Director in its subsidiary IoniX Pro.  Mr. Abenante currently holds the title of Chief Innovation Officer and will now also assume the head of the Company’s battery products and services subsidiary.

The Company recently closed the first tranche of its previously announced private placement, as stated in its news release dated April 6, 2021.

Umbria Network Announces Second Airdrop of 100,000 UMBR Tokens

0

 

Umbria – the layer 2 DeFi protocol – is implementing another round of free distribution of its native governance token ($UMBR).

Anyone holding a minimum of 100 UMBR or two UMBR-ETH Liquidity Pool (LP) tokens at the time of the snapshot will be eligible to claim a share of the 100,000 UMBR airdrop directly into their MetaMask wallet on May 15th. Those who have staked their UMBR-ETH LP tokens in the Umbria Farm will also qualify whilst simultaneously earning an attractive APY.1

The amount of UMBR airdropped to participants will be proportional to their UMBR and UMBR-ETH LP holdings (or stake) relative to the total amount of tokens held by the community at the time of the snapshot. UMBR holders will receive a portion of 33.4% of the 100,000 UMBR airdrop allocation and those that provide liquidity to the UMBR-ETH liquidity pool in Uniswap will receive a share of an allotted 66.6% on the 15th of May.

The snapshot of the Ethereum blockchain will be taken on April 15th at 5pm BST and will take note of all holders of each token. Those eligible need to visit airdrop.umbria.network and press the “Claim Airdrop” button on May 15th to get their share of the airdrop.

Further details can be found here: https://airdropalert.com/umbria-airdrop and more information is included in the Airdrop FAQs. The Umbria Airdrop Bounty Program offers a number of ways to earn UMBR in return for completing different social media tasks to help promote the Umbria Airdrop. Find out more by visiting our Medium blog.

Umbria (https://umbria.network/) is an opensource project on a mission to demystify and simplify DeFi and get people earning income on their crypto. The project’s governance token

UMBR is available on Uniswap. UMBR-ETH Liquidity Pool Tokens – which qualify for a larger proportion of the airdrop – are obtained by adding liquidity to the UMBR-ETH Liquidity Pool on Uniswap; the pool recently hit $1 million in liquidity.

“The first airdrop was very well received and we’re seeing a lot of UMBR holders depositing into the Umbria Farm to additionally capitalise, which is great for the whole Umbria Network ecosystem,” said Oscar Chambers, Co-Lead Developer at Umbria. “With the next airdrop we’re looking forward to rewarding existing holders further and introducing new participants at this early adoption stage.”
