Two Additional Countries Enter TRACEsafe Advanced Pilot Stage

May 21, 2020 - Blockchain Holdings Ltd. ("Blockchain") (CSE:BCX) is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary TRACEsafe Technologies Inc. has entered into advanced pilot stage programs for its TRACEsafe technology with Kuwait and an additional Southeast Asian country. These countries build-off the continued success of the TRACEsafe technology in Hong Kong’s COVID-19 containment program as each strengthens its own program in the fight against Covid-19.

The Southeast Asian country (unnamed at this time under confidentiality obligations) is using TRACEsafe original hardware and software packages to manage self-quarantine. Kuwait is utilizing TRACEsafe hardware to deploy an innovative safety and contact tracing program across the country’s food delivery workforce. The program, called “DeliverSafe”, is aimed at ensuring safety among food delivery and service workers. Following successful completion of the pilot phases, it is anticipated that additional shipments will be delivered to these countries in due course.
