Launch of First Blockchain Powered Loan Transaction Network

Finzat Block and Thomas Ho Company Ltd (THC) Announce Launch of First Blockchain Powered Loan Transaction Network

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Block One Capital Inc. (TSXV: BLOK, OTCQB: BKPPF Frankfurt: ES3) (the "Company" or "Block One Capital"), an investment company focused on early stage and high growth opportunities in the blockchain sector, is pleased to provide the following corporate update. Finzat Block LLC ("Finzat"), a Block One Capital fin-tech portfolio company, has formed a strategic partnership with Thomas Ho Company Ltd. ("THC"), to provide the first-ever loan transaction capabilities built on blockchain technologies. THC is a New York based nationally recognized leader in asset-liability management and whole loan trading.

Finzat and THC's network, driven by Smart Contract technologies and blockchain applications, is designed to streamline the participants' operation, strengthen security protocols, shorten transaction time and ultimately increase profitability. Community banks and credit unions lacking scale to fully access these benefits on their own can now have the opportunity to do so through this network. "Dr. Ho is a proven expert in whole loan trading and balance sheet analysis. We believe that the synergies created between Dr. Ho, when combined with Finzat's own strengths in blockchain technology, are substantial. This new partnership has significant possibilities to create a meaningful blockchain network effect," said Dr. Gnanesh Coomaraswamy, Finzat CEO. Adding recently named senior advisor Alex J. Pollock's expertise in mortgage markets and strategic advice to Dr. Thomas Ho's long and successful track record in financial risk management and loan trading, gives Finzat distinct advantages as it looks to offer much needed competition in the approximate $10 trillion US residential mortgage market. As President of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago, Mr. Pollock created the highly successful MPF mortgage acquisition program. Finzat executives Michael Moore and Dr. Gnanesh Coomaraswamy were also part of the MPF senior team. The Federal Home Loan Bank mortgage acquisition programs total well over $55 Billion today. "THC is delighted to partner with Finzat, whose management team has a track record of outstanding achievement in the mortgage market and has acquired utility blockchain technologies. We expect that Finzat will complement THC's network of asset-liability management analytical and transactional technologies, which, in turn, will be greatly beneficial to our clients," said Dr. Thomas Ho, president of THC.

CECL Model

THC White Paper: Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL): THC Model

CECL will affect multiple processes within a depository institution; the Allowance for Credit Loss (ACL) calculation will no longer be confined to the accounting department. The new standard will have a significant impact on an institution's loan origination and ALM profitability and risk management. The new Allowance for Credit Loss (ACL) will follow a principle-based accounting standard, rather than rule-based standard. Both the principles of present value of life-of-loan (akin to level II Fair Value Accounting) and the consistency with other regulatory financial reports will require CECL to be implemented within both accounting and safety-and-soundness regulatory guidelines.
