BUZ INVESTORS  PRESS RELEASE  Cryptobuyer Emerges as a Leader  Cryptobuyer, a leading cryptocurrency and digital assets company in the Latin America has gained the distinction of being the first company ever to install Bitcoin ATMs (BTMs) in a commercial bank after two of its BTMs found a place in the premises of Banistmo Bank’s headquarters. The installation of BTMs followed the recently concluded Panamanian Association of Fintech event. Cryptobuyer was one of the participants at the second edition of the event which was hosted by the second largest bank in Panama, Banistmo. The event witnessed widespread participation from the members of banking and finance community and the general public.

The CEO, Jorge Luis Farias was part of a panel of experts discussing the scope and applications of blockchain technology at the event. The panel discussion garnered the attention of over 300 participants from various industry sectors. The participation of Cryptobuyer in the Panamanian Association of Fintech event coincided with a recent report on Bloomberg covering the company and its use of blockchain technology to solve real world problems in the lives of people in emerging countries like Venezuela – a nation that is currently affected by hyperinflation and capital controls.




 Cryptobuyer Emerges as a Leader

Farias, along with the CEO of Tigo CTM Cindy Zimmerman and the founder of Guldcoin Ira Miller, both technology partners of Cryptobuyer showcased the two BTMs installed within the bank. These state-of-the-art machines supporting both Bitcoin and DASH were well received as many people in attendance lined up to test the equipment. The company plans to install more than 20 of these Bitcoin ATMs across Panama and rest of South America as the first phase of its effort to create a cryptocurrency ATM network in the region.

The Global Business Developer at DASH, Daniel Diaz also took part in the panel and spoke about the advantages of DASH as one of the most promising cryptocurrencies. Cryptobuyer, recognizing the cryptocurrency’s potential announced support for DASH during the same event. Other prominent members in attendance at the event included Yari Romero, the CIO of CBChains.com – a venture capital, startup, and blockchain consulting firm, Alejandro de la Torre from BTC.com, Felipe Echandi Founder of Quanto mobile digital payments application and PanaFintech, Alejandro Palomar of Blockchain 360 Solutions and KPMG’s Glenn Tjon.

BTC.com’s Alejandro de la Torre, who came all the way from Amsterdam demonstrated the use of Bitcoin wallet and gave away over 100 gift codes, to be redeemed on BTC.com wallet for Bitcoin. Similarly, Palomar enlightened the audience about Blockchain technology while Tjon touched upon the impact of distributed ledger technology on global organizations.

After the panel discussion, Cryptobuyer announced its entry into the Ciudad del Saber (City of Knowledge) technology and innovation campus to set up base alongside 180 world-class companies and organizations including the likes of the United Nations, Copa Airlines, IESA and Hewlett-Packard. Cryptobuyer while setting up its headquarters in the technology hub will also develop Blockchain Academy Latam to impart cryptocurrency related education, training, and certifications to individuals, companies and organizations from Latin America and rest of the world.

And finally, the big news. The company also announced its plans for an ICO in the coming weeks as the company looks forward to expanding its business model and operations with a soon-to-be-launched product. More details about the ICO and the new product launch will be announced soon.

In conjunction with the Credit Facility, the Company has entered into an agreement with a syndicate of of underwriters led by Canaccord Genuity Corp. and including Beacon Securities Limited (the “Underwriters“) pursuant to which the Underwriters have agreed to purchase, on a bought deal, private placement basis, C$15,000,000 aggregate principal amount of unsecured convertible debenture (the “Convertible Debentures“) at a price of C$1,000 per Convertible Debenture (the “Offering“).

The Convertible Debentures will bear interest from the date of closing at 8.0% per annum, payable semi-annually on the last day of February and August of each year. The Convertible Debentures will have a maturity date of 24 months from the Closing Date of the Offering (the “Maturity Date“).

The Convertible Debentures will be convertible at the option of the holder into Common Shares at any time prior to the close of business on the Maturity Date at a conversion price of C$3.10 per Common Share (the “Conversion Price“). Beginning on the date that is four months and one day following the closing date of the Offering, the Company may force the conversion of all of the principal amount of the then outstanding Convertible Debentures at the Conversion Price on 30 days prior written notice should the daily volume weighted average trading price of the Common Shares be greater than C$4.50 for any 10 consecutive trading days.

The Convertible Debentures will be subject to redemption, in whole or in part, by the Company at any time after 12 months upon giving holders not less than 30 and not more than 60 days’ prior written notice, at a price equal to the then outstanding principal amount of the Convertible Debentures plus all accrued and unpaid interest up to and including the redemption date. Upon a change of control of the Company, holders of the Convertible Debentures will have the right to require the Company to repurchase their Convertible Debentures, in whole or in part, on the date that is 30 days following the giving of notice of the change of control, at a price equal to 104% of the principal amount of the Convertible Debentures then outstanding plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon (the “Offer Price“). If 90% or more of the principal amount of the Convertible Debentures outstanding on the date of the notice of the change of control have been tendered for redemption, the Company will have the right to redeem all of the remaining Convertible Debentures at the Offer Price.

Net proceeds from the Offering will be used primarily for funding the Credit Facility and for general working capital purposes.

Closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about February 28, 2017. The Offering is in the form of a bought deal private placement (i) in Canada to “accredited investors” within the meaning of National Instrument 45-106 – Prospectus Exemptions and other exempt purchasers in each province of Canada, as agreed upon by the Company and the Underwriters, (ii) in the United States only to Qualified Institutional Buyers (within the meaning of Rule 144A), and in each case in compliance with the securities laws of the applicable states of the United States and (iii) outside Canada and the United States on a basis which does not require qualification or registration of the Convertible Debentures or Common Shares issuable upon conversion of the Convertible Debentures.

Brazil Leader Michel Temer Seeks to Ease Worry Over Rio’s Readiness for Olympics

Brazil Leader Michel Temer Seeks to Ease Worry Over Rio’s Readiness for Olympics

Brazil’s interim President Michel Temer on Saturday expressed confidence in this city’s ability to pull off a successful Olympic Games, as fresh data on surging crime rates underscored the troubled preparations for the event.

Speaking at the inauguration of a subway line that Rio’s state government barely finished in time for the Olympics, Mr. Temer insisted Rio is ready to be “the capital of the world” starting Aug. 5, when the Games kick off.

“I am absolutely certain Rio de Janeiro will do Brazil an extraordinary service by showing the whole world that Brazil is capable,” Mr. Temer told reporters after riding the train.

A day earlier, Rio’s state Institute of Public Security released fresh data showing murders, muggings and carjackings rose last month in the capital. Killings by police officers more than doubled to 49 people from 24 in June 2015.

With violent crime on the rise in Rio and a spate of lone-wolf terror attacks taking place around the world in recent months, security tops the list of concerns for Brazilian authorities, as they finish preparing for the Games.

Mr. Temer, didn’t discuss security during Saturday’s event but sought on Friday to quell concern about terrorism, as authorities arrested another member of group suspected to have been planning attacks in Rio de Janeiro. Mr. Temer said there is no terrorist cell in Brazil “that hasn’t been identified by the federal government.”

Still, other issues have complicated the run-up to the Games.

A number of national sports delegations that arrived at Rio’s Athlete’s Village last weekend quickly moved out, complaining of faulty construction, plumbing and electricity. The Australian delegation, which returned to the village on Thursday after having pulled out about a week ago, had to evacuate its building briefly on Friday after a small fire broke out in the basement.
