On October 23, 2018, the Company received notice that the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) issued an Order (the “Order”) to Section 12(k) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), temporarily suspending trading in our common stock during a period commencing 9:30 a.m. EDT on October 22, 2018 and terminating at 11:59 p.m. EDT on November 2, 2018.

The SEC took this action due to concerns about the accuracy and adequacy of information in the marketplace about, among other things, our products and services and certain regulatory approvals, as stated in press releases we issued on August 16, 2018 and August 22, 2018. In particular, the Order notes that in press releases issued August 16 and August 18, 2018, we claimed that we had partnered with an “SEC qualified custodian” for use with cryptocurrency transactions that would be “under SEC Regulations,” We now understand that although Prime Trust, the entity referenced in the press releases, claims that it is a “Qualified Custodian,” that statement is not intended to imply that Prime Trust was registered with or regulated by the SEC as we incorrectly stated in our press releases. The Company recognizes that the SEC does not endorse or qualify custodians for cryptocurrency or other forms of currency. The Company has terminated its relationship with Prime Trust.

Further, the Order notes that in the August 22, 2018, release we stated that we were beginning a public offering of convertible preferred shares and that the offering would be registered in accordance with the requirements of the SEC. We, in fact, have not registered with the SEC or any state regulatory authority a public offering of any of our securities or a cryptocurrency.
