IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 11, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Future City Holding Inc. (OTCQB:FTCY) (the "Company") confirmed today that its strategic partner, Great Coin, Inc., has filed a registration statement for the registration of "G-Coins", a digital security to be utilized by the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, GX-Life Global, Inc., in its multi-level marketing and retail business operations.
Great Coin filed a Form 1-A Registration Statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission under the new Regulation A of the Securities Act of 1933 known commonly as "Regulation A+" (the "Registration Statement") on November 10, 2015 for the initial registration of up to 20,000,000 G-Coins. GX-Life Global serves as a selling securityholder under the Registration Statement for the resale of 5,000,000 G-Coins it acquired from Great Coin pursuant to a private placement. The initial offering price of the G-Coins will be between a range of $0.50 and $2.50 per coin to be determined by Great Coin's Board of Directors following the effectiveness of the Registration Statement.
The G-Coin is an open source digital security that functions as a store of value and a medium of exchange. G-Coins will be created with secure, 256-bit encryption and will be freely tradable on an online trading platform. The price of a G-Coin, once on the trading platform, will be determined by market forces through trading activity. As a digital security, G-Coin will be offered as an uncertificated security, the ownership and transfer of which are recorded on an encrypted, secured distributed ledger system using technology similar to the distributed ledger technology used for trading digital currencies.
GX-Life Global intends to distribute the G-Coins it acquired to members of the GX-Life Global community as loyalty points for the members' participation in the GX-Life Global community. Members of GX-Life Global will be able to redeem their status points, reward points, and status reward points for G-Coin at 100 percent of their points' dollar value. Each member of GX-Life Global will be issued a GX-Life Global-branded debit card that holds both redeemed cash and G-Coin. Holders of G-Coin will be able to use their G-Coins to purchase products offered by GX-Life Global or sell them on the online trading platform for cash.
Ning Liu, CEO and President of the Company commented, "We feel that the integration of the G-Coin digital security into GX-Life's membership compensation plan will set us apart from other multi-level marketing businesses. The added incentive of a digital security freely-tradable on an online exchange with state of the art verification and clearance technology coupled with the quality of products sold by GX-Life Global all reaching a worldwide audience presents a compelling snapshot of our future business plans."
The Registration Statement relating to the registration of the G-Coins has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission but has not yet become effective. These securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the effectiveness of the Registration Statement. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy these securities, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification of these securities under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
