In addition to the Company working on completing all necessary filings for the Exchange, the Company is working on several exciting projects.
The restructuring of Sterling and Mojo has taken more time than expected which has delayed the release of the Company's filings and audited financial statements. We are continuing to proceed forward on all necessary filings and expect to soon notify shareholders when completed.
In Q3 2017, the Company entered into license and services agreements with Factory Games to launch a poker mobile app for a social play money audience. This game is tailored to provide social players with quick bursts of exciting poker play. The game will monetize these players by selling packages of an in-game currency that help players progress to the next levels in the game. The game is scheduled to officially launch in Q2 this year. This project has generated over US$900,000 in revenue for the Company in 2017. Once launched, the game will generate further services and profit sharing revenue for the Company. As part of its License agreement with Factory, the Company has received a partial ownership position in Factory Games. Leveraging the experience and knowledge the Company is building in mobile games, the Company is currently investigating launching new casual/puzzle mobile games.
In Q4, 2017, the Company entered into licensing and services agreements with Blocpal International, to help BlocPal develop and launch a payment processing eWallet solution supporting transactions between Merchants and Consumers using cryptocurrencies and traditional fiat currencies. The solution leverages the Company's enterprise back-office which includes modules for account management, CRM, customer support/helpdesk, risk/fraud management, user rewards, affiliate management and payment processing. The initial revenue to the Company for licensing its software and providing services to Blocpal to launch the product is over US$1 Million with further profit sharing and services revenue following the launch. The launch of the first solution for BlocPal is scheduled for Q2 this year. As part of its License agreement with BlocPal, the Company has also received a partial ownership position in BlocPal.
The Company is preparing to launch its own Direct-to-Consumer online gaming sites with a new marketing partner allowing users to play games using fiat and/or crypto currencies. Related to the launch of the Company's cryptocurrency D2C gaming sites, the Company is releasing its own loyalty crypto coin blockchain solution. The Company's loyalty coin program will be marketed to all gaming sites as an opportunity to offer their players a more advanced loyalty program leveraging the benefits provided through blockchain and cryptocurrencies.
The India gaming network launched last year with Baadshah Gaming is slowly but steadily progressing.
