To Invest in Move-to-Earn Project DEFY
Sydney, Dec 10, 2021 AEST (ABN Newswire) - OliveX Holdings Limited (NSX:OLX), through its wholly-owned subsidiary OliveX (HK) Limited, is pleased to announce that it has committed to make a strategic investment in the move-to-earn blockchain gaming sector, through an investment in the utility tokens (DEFY Tokens) to be created and launched by DEFY Labs Pte. Ltd (DEFY) (Proposed Investment).

OliveX's vision and strategy is to develop and invest in a number of move-to-earn titles in order to contribute to creating a fully open and interoperable metaverse in collaboration with strategic partners such as Animoca Brands. The Company's aim is to incubate projects via investment in early stage move-to-earn games within the ecosystem in order to expand the fitness metaverse and to provide a mechanism to create fully interoperable NFTs across the multiple platforms and metaverses. By increasing interoperability of NFTs, the Company aims to increase their utility, create further opportunities for trade and increases the value of the NFTs themselves.

The strategic investment into DEFY is a further step towards the Company progressing this vision. As part of the Proposed Investment, OliveX has also committed to provide cooperation assistance to DEFY to assist in the promotion of the DEFY Tokens leading up to its launch in Q1 2022. The Proposed Investment is also part of a broader investment with Animoca Brands Limited, to invest in the DEFY Tokens. OliveX will continue to evaluate other investments similar to the DEFY investment.

The Company initially commenced this vision with an investment in GENE, a utility token launch by Genopets, which is built on the Solana blockchain and is a virtual gaming metaverse, shaped and molded by the users' real life actions. The Genopet itself is a digital familiar which is connected to the user which develops and grows based on real life mind and body data, captured by the user's wellness wearables. As the user evolves, so does the Genopet linked to them.

The developments in relation to GENE has provided the Company positive feedback in relation to its strategic vision and the Company believes that DEFY has significant potential.
