BLOK Technologies Inc. (CSE:BLK) (FRANKFURT:2AD) (“BLOK Tech” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Visionary Private Equity Group (“VPEG”) and the Company have entered into a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) to form a joint venture for the development of technology for the real estate industry.

Under the terms of the MOU, which is subject to the parties agreeing upon definitive terms, BLOK Tech will license its Greenstream blockchain technology platform in exchange for a US $500,000 licensing fee and a 25% equity position in a to-be formed joint venture company (“NewCo”). The MOU outlines the terms of the proposed strategic partnership between VPEG and BLOK Tech relating to the development of new technology enterprises, the first of which is expected to be with a real estate company partner.


“This is a significant milestone for BLOK Technologies,” said Rob Dawson, CEO of BLOK Tech. “Our business model has always been to develop and deploy our technology into multiple industries, and this partnership with VPEG is expected to move that strategy forward in a significant way. We are very enthusiastic about working with VPEG as a partner in the future. Their complimentary technology and access to capital provides a great fit for us as we build new technology companies we will own equity in. The real estate sector with its complicated structure, numerous stakeholders and fragmented data sets, is an ideal environment to deploy the technologies we are building. We see tremendous potential to improve transparency, trust, transactions and compliance through the commercialization of our technology.”

Under the terms of the non-binding MOU between BLOK Tech and VPEG the parties have agreed to the following:

  • BLOK Tech and VPEG will establish a new joint venture company for the licensing, aggregation and build out of technologies for the real estate sector;
  • The Parties will seek to jointly identify and secure a 3rd strategic partner from the real estate industry, who is expected to provide US $5M in funding for NewCo.
  • BLOK Tech will grant NewCo an exclusive and perpetual license of the Greenstream technology platform for the real estate sector for a licensing fee of US $500,000 payable to BLOK upon the securing of NewCo financing.
  • VPEG will grant NewCo an exclusive and perpetual license of the Visionary Technology stack (including NFC, RFID, and Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality technologies) for the real estate sector for a licensing fee of US $500,000 payable to VPEG upon the securing of NewCo financing.
  • BLOK Tech and VPEG will be equal partners in NewCo and will jointly bring in other equity partners.

“As a private equity firm with portfolio holdings in a variety of emerging technology companies, we see significant potential for the integration and expansion of BLOK Tech’s technology into other industries,” said Ron Zamber, Chairman and Senior Managing Director of Visionary Private Equity Group.  “We have been impressed with BLOK Tech’s Management and Engineering Teams as well as their recent accomplishments.  We have identified a compelling use case for the real estate industry from which we can leverage our deep relationships in this sector, and provide added value through deployment of our robust technology stack. We look forward to building a successful joint venture together.”
