Global Future City Holding Inc. Announces no Affiliation With EGD, Lei Pei or Future World

IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 4, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Future City Holding Inc. (OTCQB:FTCY) (the "Company") would like to announce that the Company has never been affiliated with Future World, E-Gold ("EGD"), and any EGD operations and platform in any capacity. Lei Pei resigned from management positions in the Company since August 2015 and is no longer affiliated with the Company. We have never solicited, marketed or sold any Future World, EGD or Mr. Pei products nor does the Company endorse any views or offers expressed by Mr. Pei, EGD or Future World.

During February 2015, the Company filed a No-Action Letter with the SEC to obtain clarification that the SEC will not recommend enforcement action against us and our related subsidiaries regarding our use of the EGD. Despite several inquiries made by our Company, we have not received any response from the SEC, which led our management to elect to spin-off the previous contribution of the 4,000,000 EGD in October 2015.

The Company's strategic partner, Great Coin, Inc., has filed a registration statement with the SEC for the registration of "GX-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. GX-Life Global has acquired 5,000,000 GX-Coins from Great Coin, Inc. pursuant to a private placement, and intends to distribute the GX-Coins to members of the GX-Life Global community as loyalty points. Members of GX-Life Global will be able to redeem their status points, reward points, and status reward points for GX-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 GX-Coin. Holders of GX-Coin will be able to use their GX-Coins to purchase products offered by GX-Life Global or sell them on the online trading platform for cash.

Great Coin, Inc. and GX-Coins are in no way and have never been affiliated with EGD, Future World or Mr. Pei products in any capacity.
