TEL AVIV, ISRAEL / ACCESSWIRE / November 8, 2017 / First Bitcoin Capital Corp. (the “Company”) (OTC PINK: BITCF) (COIN: BITCF), a global developer of industry-specific blockchain powered applications, today announces that Petroteq Energy, Inc. (TSX-V: PQE) (OTCQX: PQEFF) (FRA: MW4A) has awarded a $500,000 contract to the Company to develop and demonstrate to the oil and gas industry a blockchain-powered supply chain management platform, www.PetroBLOQ.com.

The contract from Petroteq, a company focused on the development and implementation of proprietary technologies for the environmentally safe extraction of heavy oils from oil sands, oil shale deposits, and shallow oil deposits, enables First Bitcoin Capital to create a platform that will serve as a one-stop shop to provide oil and gas companies the ability to customize their own distributed ledger modules to enhance their business operations.

“Blockchain technology has the potential to change not only the oil and gas sector but also other areas of the global business world, leading to improved and optimized efficiency of the end-to-end business transaction processes,” said First Bitcoin CEO Greg Rubin.

First Bitcoin Capital has chosen the Hyperledger blockchain, a product developed by the Linux Foundation-led open-source cross-industry collaborative Hyperledger Project, as the core technology for the platform for Petroteq to be used for real-time supply chain management. The Company will also build for Petroteq a smart contract system prototype on a blockchain to improve the efficiency of oil and gas supply chain management interactions. Taking advantage of distributed ledgers, the two companies will be exploring ways to optimize and monitor the supply chain logistics on the blockchain to automate oil and gas industry transactions.

“We have begun a journey with First Bitcoin Capital to exploit the potential of this new technology. We are very pleased with the cooperation with the team and will begin to develop a first blockchain proof-of-concept. We look forward to seeing these blockchain applications applied to our business,” stated Alex Blyumkin, CEO of Petroteq.

According to a report by www.OilPrice.com, blockchain technology shows great potential, as it can be used to execute energy supply transactions, as well as create the basis for clearing processes, metering and billing applications in the documentation of ownership, the state of asset, renewable energy and white certificates, guarantees of origin and emission allowances.

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL / ACCESSWIRE / October 4, 2017 / First Bitcoin Capital Corp. (OTC PINK: BITCF) (the “Company”) announced today that payment of TeslaCoil Coins as a dividend to holders of the Company’s common stock on the previously announced record date has been postponed pending finalization of a workable distribution plan and subject to receipt of required regulatory approval. On August 2, 2017, the Company announced that it would pay a dividend in the form of TeslaCoil Coins to shareholders and thereafter established a record date of September 12, 2017, with the payment of the dividend scheduled for September 29, 2017. However, the Company did not anticipate the complexity associated with developing a plan to ensure that payment of the cryptocurrency dividend is made available to all beneficial owners of the Company’s common stock as of the record date and is working on various procedural and logistical distribution issues. The Company hopes to have a comprehensive distribution plan in place within the near future and will announce further details as they become available.

During the interim, the TeslaCoil Coins payable as dividends have been declared and deposited by the Company in a separate Omni digital wallet owned and controlled by the Company and will be held for the benefit of shareholders entitled to payment of the dividend. The Omni wallet in which the TeslaCoil Coin dividends have been deposited may be viewed at:

SACRAMENTO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / September 21, 2017 / First Bitcoin Capital Corp (OTC PINK: BITCF) and SAMCO Financial announced today that SAMCO has delivered 3 automated check-cashing kiosks to BITCF locations in Northern California. Kiosks were ordered by BITCF as a pilot test to integrate Bitcoin ATM functionality into self-service check cashing kiosks nationwide. During the pilot, BITCF is offering discounted check-cashing services and will promote the new services through online advertising, in-store signs, and special events, all aimed at consumers who use a check-cashing services.

SAMCO’s Web-enabled check cashing kiosks merge unique and exclusive check cashing capabilities with Internet-based applications. Both companies will now begin development of Bitcoin buy/sell capabilities to be integrated into a nationwide network of a growing number of kiosks which SAMCO already has in place. Services our Company plans to integrate will include BITCOIN ATM transactions, money orders and transfer,s as well as check cashing.

Store customers already have immediate touchscreen access to advanced services such as check cashing with Bitcoin transactions soon to be integrated.

BITCF is conducting pilot tests and studying customer acceptance of the check cashing kiosks with 3 units now installed at large Northern California grocery chain at the following locations:

6366 Mack Road
Sacramento, CA 95823
Hours: 6am-11pm
916.392.0693
Map & Directions

4401 Broadway
Sacramento, CA 95817
Hours: 6am-11pm
916.451.2446
Map & Directions

430 Elkhorn Blvd.
Rio Linda, CA 95673
Hours: 6am-11pm
916.991.1435
Map & Directions

The first two kiosks are already operating, with the third to become operational this week.

Earlier this year, BITCF announced becoming exclusive distributor of check cashing kiosks in California for the medical cannabis dispensaries, but decided to expand to include other high traffic retail locations.

Fees for the check cashing services will be competitive. Store customers using the service will be able to cash any valid type of check: government issued checks, payroll checks, and other types, including C-Stores and supermarkets, with service to every kind of customer. Many of those are unbanked and may need to cash checks before purchasing. Offering check cashing services on premises to this group of customers will be a very attractive way to increase revenues, as dispensary owners are looking for new ways to draw more customers because of check cashing convenience.

According to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), a 2015 National Survey of Unbanked and Underbanked Households indicates that more than 7 percent of households in the United States were unbanked in 2015. This proportion represents approximately 9 million households. An additional 19.9 percent of U.S. households (24.5 million) were underbanked, meaning that the household had a checking or savings account but also obtained financial products and services outside of the banking system. By offering check cashing, our ATM Division expects that dispensaries will increase their customer base significantly once we expand to this market. Sacramento is the cultural and economic core of the Sacramento metropolitan area, which includes seven counties with a 2010 population of 2,414,783.

To cash a check, customers insert the ID card and check, then enter their pertinent information about the check via touchscreen access at the SAMCO kiosk. SAMCO validates the information, verifies customer identity in real time, performs an online check authorization, and issues an approval or decline back to the consumer.

Self-service check cashing kiosks with integrated Bitcoin ATM capability will be just one more innovation in the company’s history of defining convenience for customers.

According to CoinRadar.com, as of 2017, there are only a total of 571 bitcoin ATMs in the entire US. Due to the low number of bitcoin ATM locations nationwide, there is a huge demand from customers seeking to buy or sell bitcoins for cash. People seeking to use a bitcoin ATM are willing to drive across entire cities just to use one, so combining a check cashing self-service kiosk with a bitcoin ATM and placing kiosks in strategic high traffic retail locations is win-win for us and consumers.

Demonstrated Ownership of Company’s Two Main Wallets

BITCF clearly demonstrated that it owns its two main wallets and will soon demonstrate ownership of two additional wallets.

In order to perform this demonstration, in our last news release, we identified the addresses of these wallets and projected the test amounts to be transferred from wallet to wallet.

Quoting from our September 13, 2017 news release:

“The first transfer will be for 18.18 Tesla property #50 from our first Omni Wallet located here: http://omnichest.info/lookupadd.aspx?address=1FwADyEvdvaLNxjN1v3q6tNJCgHEBuABrS

“These 18.18 will be transferred to our second Omni Wallet here: http://omnichest.info/lookupadd.aspx?address=1VuF26AgLyQ4tBoGzYTWRqtDG9zCB7QXe

“From this second Omni Wallet 19.19 FUEL property #189 will be sent to the first wallet.”

This is the confirmed simple send from the first wallet for the 18.18 TESLA:

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL / ACCESSWIRE / September 13, 2017 / First Bitcoin Capital Corp. (OTC PINK: BITCF) (the “Company”) announced today that the record date for its crypto coin dividend remains September 12, 2017.

Shareholders are to receive approximately .048 TeslaCoil Coin for each share of BITCF held on the record date. This is based on the closing price of $0.037 declared on August 2, 2017, and yesterday’s closing price of each TeslaCoil Coin at $0.768797 as a 10% dividend. The Company can provide no assurances that after this dividend is paid the price per TeslaCoil Coin will continue in its current trading range once in the hands of our public shareholders due to the sporadic, low volume, historical trading record found at coinmarketcap.com. While FINRA may set an ex-dividend date for this dividend, based on the payment date, the Company can make no assurances that the regulatory agency will set or publish an ex-dividend date as this is history’s first cryptocurrency dividend to public shareholders.

As an additional point of information, the Company has decided that, on a periodic basis, it will publish a blockchain event or events designed to provide proof of ownership of the crypto tokens contained in the Company’s four major wallets. These events consist of certain transactions conducted by the Company between or within its three primary Omni wallets and a specified transfer from its Ethereum Wallet. Because distributed ledgers such as the Bitcoin Blockchain and the Omni layer built on the blockchain are open to public inspection, the token transfers will transparently demonstrate its ownership of the crypto tokens. Only a person or entity with the private keys to these wallets can initiate any transaction or event involving these tokens.

The first transfer will be for 18.18 Tesla property #50 from our first Omni Wallet located here: http://omnichest.info/lookupadd.aspx?address=1FwADyEvdvaLNxjN1v3q6tNJCgHEBuABrS

These 18.18 will be transferred to our second Omni Wallet here: http://omnichest.info/lookupadd.aspx?address=1VuF26AgLyQ4tBoGzYTWRqtDG9zCB7QXe

From this second Omni Wallet 19.19 FUEL property #189 will be sent to the first wallet.

From the third Omni Wallet we will send 20.00 UAE property #193 to our first wallet:

http://omnichest.info/lookupadd.aspx?address=1M18oycUdsXv4pKyLLiASREcRGzPu22MxK

From our Ethereum Wallet, we will transfer 18.18 Alphabit (COIN:ABC) to a wallet we will establish under our control.

Once these transfers are confirmed on the various blockchains, we will issue another press release that will allow the public to verify, through distributed ledger technology, the Company’s transparent ownership of these tokens. These “proof of ownership” transactions have been designed by the Company to put to rest any questions or doubts raised by concerned shareholders.

The Company asks all potential shareholders to carefully consider the high risks involved in speculating in our common stock and to take note of the fact that all of the extensive inventory of our various altcoins, while showing significant potential, is highly speculative, and these cryptocurrencies are extremely illiquid and only trade sporadically on small, unregulated foreign cryptocurrency exchanges.

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / August 2, 2017 / First Bitcoin Capital Corp, the world’s most prolific issuer of digital currencies (OTCMarkets: BITCF) is pleased to announce that it intends to make history by being first to pay dividends to shareholders in the form of a cryptocurrency.

The company earned 20,000,000 TeslaCoilCoin(s) (symbol TESLA) by using its Omni protocol node to generate TeslaCoilCoin(S) for Tesla Coils, Inc. This coinage does not represent ownership in any entity and does not pay dividends or provide earnings to its owners and is merely a digital fiat crypto currency.

First Bitcoin intends to pay regular quarterly 10% digital cash dividends in crypto currencies as long as we have a surplus of this new form of money in reserves.

The company is determining the valuation of its shares and TESLACoilCoin based on the last trade at the close of business as of today, the declaration date. For example if BITCF were to close at yesterday’s price of $.3695 per share and TESLA Coil Coin were to close at last Friday’s price of BTC 0.00019744 BTC or US $.54, each shareholder would receive approximately .00684 TESLA Coil Coin for each 1 share of BITCF held as of the record date of ownership.

The Board has set the record date for September 12, 2017, with the payment date of September 29, 2017, to complete this historic dividend event. The company is notifying FINRA ten days in advance of the record date and anticipates that FINRA will set an x-dividend date based on the record date. Owners of our common shares that they own on the OMNI Bitcoin blockchain will be automatically credited with TESLA as both BITCF and TESLA ride on the rails of the Bitcoin blockchain and can share the same wallet addresses. In order to avoid confusion with outside exchanges, it is best to hold your BITCF when in crypto form, in your private OMNI wallet.

The company will send out a digital crypto certificate of ownership to each shareholder with instruction on how to download a wallet and convert their certificates into digital TESLA Coil Coins.

The company intends to pay additional dividends in various crypto currencies that may include crypto exchange symbols $WEED $FLY $PRES, $HILL, $GARY, $BURN, $OTX and $KLC. We may also from time to time pay dividends in our own common shares in their crypto form which trades under the crypto symbol $BITCF on various foreign cryptocurrency exchanges.

$WEED coin listed on 3 exchanges during 3rd successful ICO (Initial Coin Offering).

WEED coin now trades on the OMNIDEX, COINQX and CRYPTOPIA https://www.cryptopia.co.nz/Exchange/?market=WEED_BTC

COINQX supports Bitcoin Cash (BCH)

It is unfortunate that many Bitcoin exchanges are not supporting Bitcoin Cash, however, clients of COINQX, our own exchange, can rely on us to deliver their Bitcoin Cash from the Bitcoin fork that occurred on August 1, 2017, with trading to commence shortly thereafter. We foresee that many of those who missed the Bitcoin run from $300 to $3000 will rush into buying BCH.

In fact, BCH ascended within first 24 hours of trading to the #3 spot on CoinMarketCap.

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / July 13, 2017 / CoinQx Exchange LIMITED, a wholly owned subsidiary of FIRST BITCOIN CAPITAL CORP (OTC PINK: BITCF ) or “Company”, “We”, “Us” or “Our”) expanded its blockchain loyalty program to include 100 of the top airlines and 10 of the top Hotel Chains using their industry codes as token symbols on the Bitcoin Blockchain for each.

The company released its 3rd Initial Coin Offering as a master loyalty coin so that all of the above mentioned 110 tokens will be exchangeable to one central coin, naming it Loyalty with the symbol FLY. In order to acquire FLY coin, anyone that sends 1 President Trump (PRES) coin to the Company’s Omni Layer Bitcoin Wallet will receive 1 FLY coin into their Omni Wallet via sending PRES to: 1FwADyEvdvaLNxjN1v3q6tNJCgHEBuABrSIn order to insure receipt of the FLY coin upon transferring PRES to the company’s address, be sure to log into your own personal Omni Wallet address and not an exchange provided wallet as they may not be prepared to credit those FLY to the sender’s account. After 6 confirmations, the LOYALTY (FLY) coin will arrive in your personal Omni Wallet. This process is fully automated and requires no manual processing by the issuer of FLY coin. In order to save BTC fees when purchasing LOYALTY (FLY) it is best (when utilizing your personal wallet) to click on Explorer, then look for and click on Active Crowdsales, then look for and click on FLY, then look for and click on PARTICIPATAE and proceed to place the amount of PRES to send and for the fees type in .0001

The creation of FLY coin can be witnessed here: https://omniexplorer.info/lookupsp.aspx?sp=309

In order to track the maturity date of this ICO kindly see further details below, and note that the crowdsale cannot be accessed directly from the below URL rather follow the instructions above: https://www.omniwallet.org/assets/details/309

The early bird bonus of 25% reduces to 20% the second week, 15% the third week, 10% the fourth week and 5% the final, fifth week, when the ICO closes. A bonus of 10% of all coins sold will belong to The Company while the 90% will be held by the participants and the Company intends to participate as well. It is rare to find an ICO that doesn’t amass a greater percentage to the issuers and organizers.

Management expects to have FLY listed on several exchanges in the immediate future, including its subsidiary, COINQX.com so that those unable to send PRES to acquire FLY may also participate and so that secondary trading may ensue.

FLY coin utilizes the same Omni protocols as our recently launched WEED coin ICO, which yielded 79,959,942.0324852 from the Company’s participation including the 6,045,726 earned WEED coins adding this asset to the Company’s main wallet.

“We chose PRES as a medium of exchange for speculators to invest in FLY since it enjoys a growing popularity and trades on both C-cex.com, Livecoin.net as well as our CoinQX.com.”

The reward points business for the travel industry alone is so staggering in size that according to (Maritz)

$48 Billion worth of points and airline miles are classified as unredeemed.

Already trillions of reward points have been issued and redeemed worldwide for all industries.

In order to capitalize on this booming industry, our CEO, Dr. Greg Rubin, an inventor with several patents approved by the USPTO has filed on our behalf a provisional patent that is designed to grant protection from competitors placing rewards points on a blockchain.

We have now issued many more billions of rewards points on the bitcoin blockchain to be redeemed by the future clients of a new travel agency that First Bitcoin is in the process of rolling out soon via www.BitClassTravel.com having already posted a travel agency bond with the State of California.

What makes our reward points unique is that they can be bought and sold in cryptocurrency markets. We anticipate that our competitors will find their travel agencies accepting our rewards tokens in order to compete. A secondary market could emerge for this new form of reward points as digital currencies. Complete details of the usages and crypto miles issued will soon be found at http://AIRmilesQX.com

In addition to being the first publicly trading company in the blockchain space, First Bitcoin has distinguished itself as a crypto leader capable of moving ahead of its competitors to roll out new endeavors so much so that our crypto reward tokens are already tradeable as altcoins on the OMNIDEX against some of the leading cryptocurrencies such as Tether, MaidSafeCoin, Omni, including all altcoins our subsidiary has issued on the Bitcoin Blockchain, to date. Many of these new mileage coins will be tradeable on our subsidiary cryptocurrency exchange, CoinQX.com, against more than 100 crypto and fiat currencies, including Bitcoin.

AIRmilesQX will change forever frequent travel loyalty programs.

Many airlines offer frequent-flyer loyalty programs to encourage customers to accumulate “miles” which airline customers can redeem to purchase air travel or other rewards. Points, or miles earned though those programs are based on complex rules, like class of fare, distance, season or the amount paid. There are also many other ways to earn points. For example, credit card issuers partner with airlines and award loyalty points or miles based on customer’s credit card usage. Points can be redeemed for air travel, ticket upgrades, booking hotels, car rentals, magazine subscriptions etc.

Frequent-flyer program points are in essence a type of virtual currency, but unfortunately, it was a one-way process – people could purchase points with national currencies, but were not able to exchange back into those currencies.

Airline miles programs go back to the early 70’s when United Airlines began to reward loyal customers with points that could be accumulated and later could be used to pay for air travel. Their programs have evolved over the last 20 years, but it is not easy to use those programs.

When travelers actually try to book a flight, they encounter major hurdles, like blackout dates (days when award seats are limited or unavailable). Every airline program has its own policies, procedures, restrictions, etc. Also, airlines and credit card issuers are constantly changing the rules and policies. Several Airlines, for example, recently increased the minimum number of miles needed to book some of their flights.

Research published by COLLOQUY, a leading provider of loyalty marketing research in 2015 indicates that U.S. consumers hold 3.3 billion memberships in customer loyalty programs, a 26% increase over the number of memberships reported in COLLOQUY’s prior census study in 2013. The 2015 Census shows that specialty store loyalty memberships now total 434 million, exceeding airline frequent flyer memberships (356 million) for the first time, placing second only to credit card reward programs, which account for 578 million memberships.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics, year over year air travel increased by 5.5% from 2015 to 2016. COLLOQUY survey found that a little more than half of Americans – 55% – have taken a flight for business or leisure purposes in the past two years. And three-fourths of respondents, 75%, said their most recent flight was within the past six months.

Another noteworthy statistic is that 60% of frequent traveler miles issued today are not earned but instead purchased.

Points accumulating in loyalty programs globally are considered by some as real currencies with increasing value that has attracted the attention of criminals, according to Barry Kirk, vice president of Loyalty Solutions for Maritz Motivation Solutions. In the US alone, 3.3 billion loyalty program memberships have stored points and miles worth an estimated $48 billion, according to the Gartner Group.

BLOCKCHAIN will CHANGE customer loyalty programs forever by giving more control to rewards owners and reducing fraud through the transparency of blockchain technologies.

First Bitcoin Capital Corp trading on the OTC Markets as BITCF has developed a unique Blockchain-based airline miles platform, allowing people to buy/exchange/trade/transfer miles without any restrictions, blackout days or other cumbersome rules that airlines impose on their programs.

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / July 10, 2017 / First Bitcoin Capital Corp (OTC PINK: BITCF) today invested its primary wallet (1FwADyEvdvaLNxjN1v3q6tNJCgHEBuABrS) owning dozens of cryptocurrencies into AlphaBIT in exchange for controlling interest, e.g. 200,000,000 ABCs. AlphaBIT is a closed-end crypto-exchange traded fund (CETF).

This is BITCF’s first venture into the Ethereum ecosystem, as ABC runs on the Ethereum blockchain.

Management considers this acquisition significant for many reasons, including providing a vehicle for shareholders to transparently monitor some of the Company’s assets. For example, at www.alphabitcoinfund.com, each wallet address of each asset owned that has been included in coinmarketcap.com can be seen, along with its value and the total current illiquid values of all assets owned in this manner. Also found on this site is the current Net Asset Value (NAV) of each share of the 200,000,000 ABC that BITCF owns in ABC, as well as the market value of each crypto-share of AlphaBIT.

In order to capitalize on the pent-up demand for ETFs in this space, the Company has made this acquisition, the first of its kind ETF and the only vehicle that provides such an opportunity to speculators.

With a total of 210,000,000 ABC current and ever to be in outstanding, AlphaBIT utilizes the newest ERC20 Standard Token Ethereum protocols, which is the same as some of the world’s most popular cryptocurrencies – as a smart contract – which was generated by a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO).

This hybrid fund is in the process of utilizing proprietary AI robots to buy and sell many cryptocurrencies as a small part of its business model, which it hopes to increase as proven successful and greater funding allows.

The Company intends to register AlphaBIT with the SEC and subsequently cause its shares to trade on a non-crypto, more traditional stock market, such as NASDAQ, NYSE, or the London Stock Exchange.
