Toronto, Ontario and Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - June 16, 2020) - KABN Systems NA Holdings Corp. (CSE:KABN) (formerly Torino Power Solutions Inc.) (the "Company" or "KABN" or "KABN North America"), a Canadian Fintech company that specializes in continuous online identity verification, management and monetization, is pleased to announce that it has entered an initial agreement to integrate its Liquid Avatar platform (www.liquidavatar.com) with Disrupted Logic Interactive's ("DLI") ctalyst® platform to enhance the experience of online and eSports gamers.
Founded in 2012 in Vancouver, BC, by a team of seasoned video, gaming, advertising and technology leaders, DLI's ctalyst® platform currently works with over 130 game producers and has an additional 150 developers awaiting invitation to join the network. ctalyst® is a one-stop, self-contained, and full-service platform similar in concept to Google's AdWords, AdSense, and Analytics, but designed just for video games and e-sports. With the 130 game producers, the peak reach has been 60 to 70 million players and manages over 150 unique data points and analytics on opt-in participants. It is anticipated that when the additional 150 game developers are invited into the program, the reach could extend to over 500 million gamers worldwide.
KABN North America's platform provides, at no cost to consumers, the ability to create a digital identity with the Liquid Avatar platform, verify their identity through KABN ID and create value for the use of their identity through KABN North America's cashback, engagement and loyalty program KABN KASH, as well as the KABN Visa card.
KABN North America generates revenue by providing users with high value services and delivering permission-based offers that fit their aggregated public data profiles. KABN never rents, sells or provides data to outside parties without permission, and complies with jurisdictional privacy rules and regulations.
KABN North America is working with DLI and its game developers to promote Liquid Avatar to US and Canadian gamers through the online game registration and certain game incentives.
"The ability to increase player reach outside of the game and the ability to empower users to control the use of their digital identity is a fundamental reason why we've partnered with Liquid Avatar," said Tom Raycove, CEO of DLI. "KABN's ecosystem presents a tremendous opportunity for DLI and our game developers to create revenue while building increased value for players."
Liquid Avatar - Delivering Reach, Value and Revenue
Game Developers - Liquid Avatar provides developers with the ability to extend their reach and revenue generation with players by having gamers activate Liquid Avatars. Any revenues generated by those gamers in the KABN Network will be shared by KABN, DLI and game developers.
Advertisers - For in-game advertisers, DLI manages over 150 unique data points and, together with Liquid Avatar, can assess if a gamer has more than 1 account, allowing unique advertising to be delivered not just based on individual game play of an individual person and not just the number of accounts, increasing both value for the advertiser and potentially increasing overall revenue in the ecosystem.
Gamers - By signing up in-game for a Liquid Avatar account, the user will have the ability to earn special rewards and value from the game developer. They will also have the ability to potentially create and manage in-game avatars with Liquid Avatar and extend their game personas to the real world. Working with DLI, the data points collected can support both the opportunities in Liquid Avatar and products like KABN KASH to create more personalized offers from merchants and increase the potential revenue generated by KABN North America.
DLI / catalyst® - The agreement with KABN North America provides opportunities for DLI to increase their ongoing reach with gamers, create value for the ecosystems and generate revenues beyond in-game advertising. Liquid Avatar and KABN will share revenues generated inside the KABN ecosystem for users generated from DLI's referrals.
KABN North America - By working with DLI and other organizations that have large networks of non-verified users, Liquid Avatar can potentially create significant revenue and value for its partners and the KABN Network. This process both increases reach for Liquid Avatar and can potentially reduce customer acquisition costs significantly.

"This agreement with DLI creates an opportunity to reach a significantly large, low acquisition cost and highly scalable market to increase the reach of Liquid Avatar," said Benjamin Kessler, CEO. "KABN's suite of services will provide an ecosystem to empower these users to manage and control their digital identity and to benefit from unique, permission-based offers that will create revenues for KABN, DLI and game developers."
DLI is currently exploring its own private funding program and KABN North America has expressed interest in participating as a lead order, subject to completion of a definitive agreement, review of the offering, and receipt of all necessary approvals.
