/UCW/ VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA – Glance Technologies Inc. (CSE:GET:CN) (OTCQB:GLNNF) (FKT:GJT) is pleased to announce it is pursuing opportunities to license its recently acquired BlockImpact cryptocurrency and blockchain platform as a white label solution. Glance believes there is high demand in the marketplace for applications of this technology platform and has had discussions with a number of parties interested in licensing this technology.
According to Coinschedule.com, over $3.7 Billion USD was invested in cryptocurrency ICOs alone in 2017, in addition to traditional investments into the blockchain space. Glance believes this is indicative of demand for blockchain and cryptocurrency payment solutions.
Glance plans to leverage the network and skills of its blockchain and cryptocurrency advisory board to market this solution. Leading Glance’s efforts on this front are Dinis Guarda and Alexander Perkins.
Dinis Guarda is a serial entrepreneur, CEO, author, influencer and evangelist who was previously ranked by Ranking.influencer.world as the #4 worldwide influencer in blockchain and crypto, the #5 most influential in blockchain by Right Relevance and #5 on the Richtopia Rise Top 100 Blockchain Insiders.

He is also the founder of Lifesci, a P2P, blockchain, search engine and PAAS. He formerly created companies such as Ztudium, that created the blockchain technology BlockImpact (acquired by Glance), Humaniq, Fabbanking.com and more. He has been advising the UN, Hyperloop Transportations and others.
Alexander Perkins is a blockchain advisor and fintech consultant with core expertise in blockchain and business development. Mr. Perkins is presently a partner at Ztudium, a blockchain consultancy and strategic advisory firm. Previously, Mr. Perkins was Vice President at Humaniq, a blockchain company working to deliver banking services to the 2 billion “unbanked” individuals globally, and an Associate at Deep Knowledge Ventures, a London-based venture capital firm.
