Analyst: Harald Hof, Matthias Greiffenberger 
 
GBC AG: With the initial release of Bitcoin in January of 2009, blockchain 
technology has been growing and evolving. What does BIG provide to the 
Blockchain ecosystem? 
 
Lance Morginn: First and foremost, Bitcoin is not asset or government 
backed. It's value is a perceived value which means it's vulnerable to 
negative news especially in these early days. Our tag line is "Bringing 
Security & Accountability to Cryptocurrency". We provide law enforcement and 
the financial sector with the a number of proprietary services. Services 
such as QLUETM, which offers deep forensics with granular information about 
cryptocurrency transactions and the entities behind them. And then there's 
our BitRank Verified® service, which offers a frontline risk-mitigation 
defense to assess if an address has been involved in illicit transactions. 
Our forensics division, meanwhile, provides law firms, law enforcement and 
financial organizations with access to world class crypto investigators and 
investigative services for cases they need assistance with. Between our 
in-house services and our custom investigations service, we are positioned 
to offer the most comprehensive suite of services in the cryptocurrency 
compliance and investigations arena. 
 
GBC AG: Cryptocurrencies suffered a significant drop in value over the last 
year. What are the reasons for this and how does this impact BIG? 
 
Lance Morginn: Personally, I believe the decline in value is related to the 
market's understandable lack of education. The run-up in the market was 
brought on by traditional stock market traders that were looking to jump on 
the next hottest sector. When it started gaining significant momentum in 
value, the old saying came into effect: when supply is low and demand is 
high, the price will climb extremely quickly. That's exactly what happened, 
and the rest of the market was still not informed enough to know what the 
difference is between blockchain, crypto and an ICO. That lack of 
fundamental understanding then contributed to the resulting decline. A 
number of other things contributed to the decline in value after December 
2017 too: first was the announcement that China would not recognize crypto 
as an asset due to a terrorist attack last fall in China that was financed 
via crypto. China was also concerned about the flight of capital and the 
volatility that we are seeing with cryptocurrencies and how their citizens 
may have a loss. The second cause for the correction was that every January, 
over the last 4 years, all cryptocurrencies have declined in value. Third, 
South Korea announced a crackdown on exchanges because of the lack of Know 
Your Customer (KYC) information being requested by exchanges. Fourth, the 
Finance Minister of India announced they do not recognize cryptocurrency as 
legal tender. You couple all these factors together, along with the lack of 
understanding that the average individual has of the sector, and that's the 
reason the pricing of crypto and where it's at today. The good news for BIG, 
however, is that as long as crypto has a form of value and the criminal 
element could be using it as a mechanism of payment, our services are more 
than necessary to our clients, so this decline does not impact us in a long 
run. The fundamentals of the industry are still intact. 
 
GBC AG: How will additional regulation impact blockchain technology? 
 
Lance Morginn: We believe additional regulation will have a positive impact 
on the industry. The more regulation that occurs, the more of a demand we 
will see for our services, so we welcome it. 
 
GBC AG: BIG Blockchain Intelligence Group Executive Chairman, Shone Anstey, 
was a Keynote Speaker at NATO's Cyber Security Lecture Series. How can BIG 
help mitigate the exposure and exploitation of cryptocurrency? 
 
Lance Morginn: We have developed sophisticated cryptocurrency analytics and 
risk-mitigation software and techniques that are available for easy-to-use 
consumption inside our primary products: QLUETM and BitRank Verified®. Our 
services help identify nefarious transactions across the Bitcoin network and 
relay actionable intel to cybersecurity and compliance professionals who use 
our service. 
 
GBC AG: BIG's share price has fallen since December. How much cash is still 
left and what's your view on the current situation? 
 
Lance Morginn: We have just over 13 million CDN in the bank and, as I 
mentioned earlier, the overall industry is currently a bear market. I 
believe that as the market starts to turn around, and as we ramp up our 
marketing efforts, the industry will realize how uniquely positioned we are 
compared to other blockchain companies. 
 
GBC AG: BIG's primary products are BitRank Verified® and QLUETM. Could you 
give us an update about the current status of these products? 
 
Lance Morginn: We continued onboarding clients in 2018, and have been 
collecting feedback from these clients to enhance our services. We have 
always had the mandate to release very polished products and we are sticking 
to that mandate. Unfortunately, answering this question in any more detail 
is a little difficult being that we are a public company and aren't at 
liberty to disclose developments that haven't been officially released yet. 
 
GBC AG: What are BIG's mid/long term goals regarding the business? 
 
Lance Morginn: Continue to enhance our service offerings and position the 
company as offering the most comprehensive suite of services relative to 
investigations and compliance in the cryptocurrency space. 
 
GBC AG: Thank you, Lance Morginn.
