Canada and LONDON, Sept. 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — INTERBIT LTD. (TSX Venture: IBIT) (the “Company”) announces that further to its strategy to focus exclusively on the development of the InterbitTM platform (the “Platform”) and testing of its performance, it has concluded that it is necessary to engage third parties to review and audit the Platform code. During this time, the Company will seek to minimize additional development expenses. The Company will be seeking assessments regarding Platform code and design and improvements to its functionality, stability and performance such that the Platform could be competitively deployed in a commercial scenario. To this end the Company will be seeking to take advantage of the Service Agreement it currently has in place with Xinova, LLC (see the Company’s July 11, 2019 press release) to obtain their expert guidance on these matters. While such third party reviews take place, the Company will halt any further material development of the Platform.
During this period of Platform review, the Company will also be taking the opportunity to review and reassess its internal technical and operational capabilities, as well the markets in which it seeks to operate.
Finally, as per the Company’s patent strategy (see the Company’s July 18, 2019 press release), the Company has filed an expedited examination request for its “Chainception” patent application in the United States. “Chainception” refers to the process of hosting a new blockchain using an existing blockchain node. The Company expects initial feedback within the next 90 days.
