New World NFT Platform Tests 100,000 Simultaneous Users, Mints NFT, Transacts on Ethereum in the App

Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - August 10, 2021) - Graph Blockchain Inc. (CSE: GBLC) (OTC Pink: REGRF) (FSE: RT5A) ("Graph") or (the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company's newest acquisition has successfully tested 100,000 simultaneous users, minting non-fungible tokens ("NFT"), along with purchase of NFTs powered by smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain within the app platform on August 4, 2021. New World Inc. successfully tested 100,000 users with zero errors, an average response time of 1.89s and latency of 1.89s. Operating 111.12 requests per second ensures the initial platform architecture is ready for initial launch and has the ability to scale successfully. Within the next 10 days, a 1 Million user test is scheduled to be completed and it will further validate the platform's ability to operate at a world scale. The New World platform's back-end user experience was also tested allowing collaborators and creators to successfully mint their respective NFT creations along with setting sale prices in USD, CAD, ETH. The web-based 'New World Creator' back-end interface also allowed users to set rules, royalties, and other value metrics to attach to their NFT. Owners of NFTs can toggle whether they are owned or created NFTs are 'for sale' or not. The 'New World Creator' back-end uniquely allowed users to geographically place their NFT anywhere on the globe. This is one of New World's unique opportunities as a platform. Once an NFT is "pinned" to a specific location other users of the app can now view the virtual Augmented Reality NFT both through the 'viewer' screen or 'maps' screen. The available (for sale) NFTs can be seen when a user is within a 1km radius of the "pinned" NFT. New World Inc. successfully transacted an NFT in-app. The NFT was created and minted via the 'New World Creator' back-end and purchased using Ethereum from one user (creator) to another user (buyer). It can be reviewed on the Rinkeby Ethereum Testnet Network: https://rinkeby.etherscan.io/token/0xab7689f9c9e7e1ef9eda7591487b11d78c6065dc Transaction Hash: 0x0040f35c0b15658d4ea8865352a1db2f892cf15242b688434379eed2cd4c8b45 About New World Inc.
