IGEN provides 2022 Year-End Results and 2023 Progress Updates

iGen Networks Corp.

McapMediaWire -- IGEN Networks Corporation (OTC: IGEN ) (CSE: IGN ), a leading innovator of solutions for the consumer automotive, fleet management, and supply-chain industries, today provides unaudited 2022 fiscal year-end financial results along with progress updates on key initiatives for 2023: For the year ended December 31, 2022, the Company recognized revenues of $318,016 an 18% increase from the previous year. Expenses for the year ended December 31, 2022, totaled $903,048 a decrease of $2,670,235 or 75%, from total expenses reported for 2021. Excluding stock-based compensation expense to our directors, operational expenses increased by 4% year-on-year. Total deferred revenue balance for year ended December 31,2022 was approximately $291,000 of which $136,000 will contribute to 2023 revenues. For the year ended December 31, 2022, the Company had a net loss of $907,598 (or ($0.00) per basic and diluted share) compared with a net loss of $3,428,937 (or ($0.00) per basic and diluted share) in 2021. Included in the net loss of $907,598, is $301,360 of other income related to the Company's gain on settlement of debt recognized in 2022. For the year ended December 31, 2022, the Company saw a net decrease in cash of $64,429. Cash used in operating activities was $978,056, an increase in cash used of 2% from the $962,960 net cash used in 2021. This was offset by net financings of $543,746 raised via private placements. During fiscal-year 2022, the Company shifted marketing focus from automotive dealerships to Credit Unions supported by Federal subsidy programs offering higher profit margins along with monthly and annual re-occurring revenues. Following the contract award for fleet management services granted by a major New York State County, the Company expanded its commercial asset management platforms with the integration of Prolog sourced technologies, a world leader in supply-chain and logistics consulting services. In addition to the renewed focus on Credit Unions and Government markets, IGEN filed Patent-Pending 17/850,250 to expand its patent portfolio to approximately 40 patent claims. Neil G. Chan, CEO of IGEN stated, "For 2023 our priorities and focus will be to leverage our exclusive channel relationships with the Association of Credit Unions Executives of Puerto Rico (ASEC), the County Executives of America, Michigan Credit Union League Service Corporation (MCULSC), and Hyperion Partners, a Master Agent for several wireless carriers in the US. We will also aggressively protect our patents along with a comprehensive review of the insurance industry and all major insurers who are billing their customers through measurement of driver behavior and performance." Intellectual Property Portfolio – as we complete our due diligence of the insurance industry and major insurers who are using driver scores as actuarial metrics for billing, protecting IGEN's patent rights will be the company highest priority in 2023. IGEN's intellectual property portfolio will focus on normalizing the "big data" elements that influence driving habits along with correcting gross errors in assessing driver performance and driver behavior. Reducing what the insurance industry refers to as "rating-errors" is the single biggest opportunity for insurance companies. With an estimated $8B of annual rating-errors attributed to demographics and historical driver data rather than actual driver data, IGEN technologies and patents will improve the accuracy of measuring driver performance and risk. With close to 40 patent claims as part of Patent No. 11,037,378 and Patent-Pending 17/850,250, IGEN's patent portfolio defines the "big data" elements essential for accurate measurements, regardless of the data source. Whether originating from mobile phones, third-party GPS devices installed in vehicles or directly from video cameras and sensors integral to electric vehicles (EV), accumulated data from a minimum of 1M access points will contribute to significant improvements in accuracy and measurement of driver performance. Consumer Product Brand focus for 2023 will market CUTrak and FamilyShield services to Credit Unions and their members through certified organizations representing specific regions across the US – namely the Association of Credit Union Executives of Puerto Rico (ASEC), comprised of approximately 90 Credit Unions and 1M members. In addition, with the successful deployment in the Upper Peninsula region, Michigan Credit Union League Service Corporation (MCULSC) is expected to expand CUTrak services amongst its members that represent approximately 80 Credit Unions located in seven districts. For each Credit Union program participant in 2023, revenue contributions are estimated to range from $48K to $120K annually per branch depending upon the number of car loans granted during the fiscal period. Commercial Fleets and Asset Management Brands Medallion GPS and Medallion PRO will be sold through our partnership agreements with Hyperion Partners and the County Executives of America (CEA). IGEN's recent award to provide Fleet Management Services to New York State Counties offers opportunity for Counties and State governments to manage their self-insured vehicles. Initial deployment for the first major County in New York State was completed in late 2022. Subsequent deployments with Counties in New York State are being finalized along with newly enlisted members for 2023. The opportunity base for IGEN Commercial Fleet Services with the CEA is estimated at 12,000 active commercial vehicles with a target market share of 30% for fiscal year 2023.

DeeLance Crypto Presale Launches to Bring Freelancing & Recruiting to Web3

Finance News

Web3 freelance and recruitment marketplace DeeLance launched its presale, raising more than $27,000 in its first 24 hours. This disruptive new platform seeks to revolutionize how companies hire contract employees and freelancers. Thanks to DeeLance’s use of blockchain technology, it’s simpler, faster, and cheaper to hire the right person for every job than ever before. Early investors have 15 days remaining to lock in the lowest price for DeeLance’s native ERC-20 token, $DLANCE. The project is planning an initial exchange offering at a list price of $0.035, representing a 40% increase from today’s presale price. DeeLance takes aim at the $761 billion recruitment industry DeeLance is making waves among analysts and investors because the potential size of its disruption is enormous. The global human resources (HR) and recruitment services industry is worth an estimated $761 billion according to research firm IBISWorld. DeeLance is going toe-to-toe right from the start with publicly traded companies like Upwork and Fiverr. However, DeeLance brings significant advantages for employers and freelancers compared to these legacy recruitment platforms. First, DeeLance makes it significantly cheaper to hire. Its 2% fee for employers is the lowest of any existing marketplace. Its 10% fee for freelancers is also highly competitive. On top of that, DeeLance doesn’t hold up payments for days on end. The platform’s blockchain-backed escrow accounts protect both employers and workers from loss, but release funds instantly once work is transferred and approved. Payments can be made in cryptocurrency as well as fiat, ensuring that there are no payment delays or costly foreign exchange fees. Visit DeeLance Presale Leveraging NFTs to manage ownership over work One of the biggest challenges that existing freelance marketplaces face is transferring ownership from contract workers to employers. Contracts rarely specify who gets to keep the intellectual property rights associated with any piece of content. DeeLance cuts through the confusion by tokenizing work as NFTs. When an employer purchases work such as a piece of written content or software code, they receive an NFT representing their ownership over that work as a deliverable. This ensures that there are never questions about who owns a piece of content and there are no limits on how companies can use the work that they’ve paid for. DeeLance metaverse offers new ways to work and hire Alongside its Web3 marketplace, DeeLance is developing the first metaverse built specifically for recruitment and freelancing. The DeeLance metaverse is an integral part of this platform, not an afterthought to take advantage of the latest trends. In DeeLance’s metaverse, employers looking to hire and freelancers looking for work will be able to interact freely as avatars. Employers can set up offices to hold meetings and interviews or even purchase virtual advertising to supercharge their hiring process. Freelancers can advertise their services and network with clients to encourage repeat work. The $DLANCE token plays an essential role in this metaverse. While contracts on DeeLance can be paid in fiat or a variety of major cryptocurrencies, offices and advertising in the DeeLance metaverse can only be purchased with $DLANCE. This means that employers and freelancers who purchase $DLANCE during the presale can lock in a discount on future office space and advertising in the DeeLance metaverse. It’s an investment not only in $DLANCE itself, but also in the future of their own businesses. Visit DeeLance Presale Limited opportunity to invest in the future of hiring DeeLance is bringing together blockchain, NFTs, and the metaverse to redefine how companies hire and how freelancers find work. It offers a major leap forward over existing recruitment platforms and holds competitive advantages in price, transparency, and speed. Investors, employers, and freelancers can lock in the lowest price for the $DLANCE token during the first stage of the project’s presale. For a limited time, $DLANCE is priced at $0.025 USDT. The price will increase to $0.027 in Stage 2 of the presale and to $0.030 in Stage 3. The presale has allocated 30% of the total $DLANCE supply and has a hard cap of $6 million. Investors can purchase $DLANCE through the DeeLance presale site using Ethereum (ETH), Tether (USDT), or a credit card via Transak.

To Empower Developing Countries by Blockchain Technology, MetaBank Announces Strategic Solutions at Oxford

MetaBank

Singapore-based MetaBank made its debut at the Blockchain Education Summit and Digital Civilisation conference held at Oriel College in Oxford University on 28th March 2023. MetaBank's CEO and COO shared the company's mission and latest case studies in Lao PDR. The company's core focus is to help developing countries transition to blockchain and digital civilisation, aiming to empower individuals and businesses worldwide. Founded by a team of bankers, lawyers, and researchers, MetaBank is committed to shaping the world by leveraging blockchain technology, particularly for developing countries in Asia. Developing countries in Southeast Asia, such as Lao PDR and Cambodia, have a lower economic development rate and poor infrastructure that have put their famous cultural heritage, such as Angkor Wat and the town of Luang Prabang, at risk. By applying blockchain technology, MetaBank aims to bring greater economic growth, helping these countries to achieve leapfrog development. MetaBank has developed innovative strategic solutions centred around blockchain technology, featuring three core pillars aimed at revolutionising the digital space. The first of these pillars is Digital Financial Inclusion, prioritising the provision of digital financial services to everyone, regardless of their income, social status, or location. Secondly, the Sustainable Digitisation pillar advocates for the fair and sustainable use of digital technologies to promote environmental responsibility and equitable access. The third pillar, the Digital Trust Ecosystem, prioritises secure and trustworthy digital interactions through cutting-edge technologies, policies, and practices. Blockchain technology is integral to achieving these objectives and enables improvements in digital identity, supply chain management, public services, transparency, and corruption reduction. MetaBank also uses blockchain technology to promote cultural heritage preservation and economic exchange through NFTs. Frank Sui, founder and CEO of the company, said, "I founded MetaBank to help eradicate poverty and give everyone a chance to live a better life." As an exclusive strategic partner for the Lao PDR government, MetaBank operates a national-level digital transformation project, using blockchain-powered digital assets as a viable solution to preserve the heritage of Buddhism in Lao PDR. LaoBuddhist.DAO will use NFTs to digitally promote Lao Buddhist culture around the world, create digital economic income, and increase foreign exchange reserves. The Luang Prabang Token (LPT) was issued based on the Lao national blockchain technology to improve the tourist experience by providing simple and convenient payment methods, thus preserving the national cultural heritage while promoting local economic development. MetaBank's ultimate mission is to provide financial services to those who are unbanked or underbanked. By using blockchain-based systems, local people can access financial services without needing a bank account. These projects allow people in developing countries who lack access to traditional banking systems to engage in economic activity and participate in the global economy. MetaBank's innovative solutions are set to shape the future of digital transformation and empower individuals and businesses worldwide. About MetaBank MetaBank is a company that is focused on driving digital inclusion and accelerating the transition to a digital civilisation. The company leverages blockchain technology to provide innovative solutions and financial services, particularly in developing countries in Asia.
