1.

NATURE AND CONTINUANCE OF OPERATIONS

Live Current Media Inc. (the "Company" or "Live Current") was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on October 10, 1995. The Company’s wholly owned principal operating subsidiary, Domain Holdings Inc. ("DHI"), was incorporated under the laws of British Columbia on July 4, 1994.

On March 21, 2019, the Company executed a distribution agreement with Cell MedX Corp. (Cell MedX), pursuant to which Cell MedX has granted to the Company an exclusive worldwide license to distribute its e-Balance microcurrent device to households and individual users. To acquire these rights, the Company paid $250,000 to Cell MedX upon signing of the letter of intent between the Company and Cell MedX in September 2018.

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. As of June 30, 2019, the Company has not achieved profitable operations, has incurred recurring operating losses and further losses are possible. The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to obtain the necessary financing to further develop its business. To date, the Company has funded operation through the issuance of capital stock and debt. Management plans to continue raising additional funds through equity or debt financing and loans from directors. There is no certainty that further funding will be available as needed. These directors raise substantial doubt about the ability of the Company to continue operating as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue its operations as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to raise sufficient new capital to fund its operating commitments and ongoing losses and ultimately on generating profitable operations. The financial statements do not include any adjustments to be recorded to assets or liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

These consolidated financial statements and related notes are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United State ("US GAAP"), and are expressed in United States dollars.

In the opinion of management, all adjustments consisting of normal recurring entries necessary for a fair statement of the periods presented for: (a) the financial position; (b) the result of operations; and (c) cash flows, have been made in order to make the financial statements presented not misleading. The results of operations for such interim periods are not necessarily indicative of operations for a full year. The accompanying unaudited interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and related notes included in the Company’s Annual Report in Form 10-K, for the year ended December 31, 2018, as filed with the SEC on April 1, 2019.

ITEM 2.  MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements contained in this Quarterly Report constitute "forward-looking statements." These statements, identified by words such as "plan," "anticipate," "believe," "estimate," "should," "expect" and similar expressions include the Company's expectations and objectives regarding its future financial position, operating results and business strategy. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other factors that may cause its actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Such factors include, general economic conditions particularly related to demand for the Company's products and services, changes in business strategy, competitive factors (including the introduction or enhancement of competitive services), pricing pressures, changes in operating expenses, fluctuation in foreign currency exchange rates, inability to attract or retain consulting, sales and/or development talent, changes in customer requirements, and/or evolving industry standards, as well as those factors discussed in the section titled "Part II, Item 1A. Risk Factors" in this Quarterly Report.

Forward looking statements are based on a number of material factors and assumptions, including the availability and final receipt of required government licenses, that sufficient working capital is available to complete the proposed activities, that contracted parties provide goods and/or services on the agreed time frames. While the Company considers these assumptions may be reasonable based on information currently available to it, they may prove to be incorrect. Actual results may vary from such forward-looking information for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to risks and uncertainties disclosed in the section titled "Risk Factors" in this Quarterly Report.

The Company intends to discuss in its Quarterly Reports and Annual Reports any events or circumstances that occurred during the period to which such documents relate that are reasonably likely to cause actual events or circumstances to differ materially from those disclosed in this registration statement. New factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for management to predict all of such factors and to assess in advance the impact of each such factor on its business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of such factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forwarding looking statement.  You are advised to carefully review the reports and documents that the Company files from time to time with the United States Securities Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), particularly its periodic reports filed with the SEC pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act").

OVERVIEW

Live Current Media Inc. (the "Company") was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on October 10, 1995.  The Company operates a segment of its business through its wholly owned subsidiary, Domain Holdings Inc., originally formed under the laws of British Columbia, Canada on July 4, 1994 and re-domiciled to Alberta, Canada on April 14, 1999 ("DHI").  The Company is also the majority shareholder of Perfume.com Inc. (95% ownership), formed under the laws of the State of Delaware on March 13, 2008.  Perfume.com Inc. is currently dormant and does not carry on an active business.  References herein to the Company include DHI and Perfume.com Inc. (collectively, the "Subsidiaries") unless otherwise stated.

RECENT CORPORATE DEVELOPMENTS

On March 21, 2019, the Company executed a Distribution Agreement with Cell MedX Corp. (the "Device Manufacturer", "Cell MedX" or "CMXC"), pursuant to which Cell MedX has granted to the Company an exclusive worldwide license to distribute the eBalance microcurrent device to households and individual users.  To acquire these rights, the Company paid to Cell MedX the sum of $250,000. 

The eBalance device is a microcurrent therapy device designed to target complications arising from diabetes.


PLAN OF OPERATIONS 

The Company's business currently is that of managing the business of DHI and distribution of the eBalance microcurrent device.  DHI is in the business of utilizing its exclusive ownership of domain names to develop internet-related business ventures. 

eBalance Distribution Business

In the near term, the Company intends to focus a majority of its resources on the development of its eBalance distribution business.  The Company anticipates the market launch of the device to begin in the late second half of 2019.  The Company's marketing efforts for the eBalance device will initially focus on directly targeting diabetics with a combination of advertising on internet platforms such as Facebook, active participation in social media, a dedicated YouTube channel, attendance at major North American health and wellness expositions and direct marketing to doctors, corporations and assisted living communities.  Management believes that it will be successful in this endeavor due to the unique aspects of the eBalance device that differentiate it from the current competition in the wellness medical device sector.  Those aspects include clinically proven results, ease of use, accessibility, no known harmful side effects, great customer service, and a limited time guarantee.

The eBalance microcurrent device is based on the Device Manufacturer's proprietary technology (the "eBalance Technology") founded on the science of bioelectric signals, their affect on epigenetic events within the human body, and ability to modify and affect the behavior of cells, tissue, and organs.  Based on this technology the Device Manufacturer is developing a radically different and very promising family of devices whose core technology demarcates it from the approaches currently in use and those in the "future advances" pipeline as reflected in current medical literature.

Microcurrent delivery devices used for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy and poor wound healing in diabetics have been in the marketplace for decades. However, the eBalance Technology can be distinguished from those devices, which have a limited utility and are not designed to treat diabetes at its.  Not a "me too" device, nor an incremental improvement in an established realm, devices based on the eBalance Technology could, if proven through diligent research and development, open a new category of diabetes care.

The eBalance Technology is intended to expand the traditional healthcare model of managing diabetes, high blood pressure, Parkinson's as well as some other pathological diseases, by enabling patients to manage their symptoms using a biosignal generating device that is simple to use, causes no discomfort, and can easily be incorporated into any lifestyle.

It is expected that the eBalance Technology will form the basis for a product line that will be available to aid in the management of diabetes mellitus (both Type 1 and Type 2), its complications, high blood pressure and some other pathologies, both as a professional clinic-based device and as a home use device.

A research and development plan adopted by the Device Manufacturer includes a series of investigations that are intended to move the product from a prototype stage through a series of refinements and enhancements to achieve the safety and efficacy objectives of the device(s) upon which a set of claims intended for FDA, Health Canada and European Medical CE approval through the rigorous Pre-Market Approval (PMA) process is being constructed. A clinical observational trial finalized during 2017 (the "Clinical Study"), and future planned clinical trials will dictate the final marketing claims for the eBalance products, and will become the foundation for sales & marketing efforts in subsequent phases. The results of the Clinical Study and in-house observations of the effects of the eBalance technology on the human body, suggested that claims should not only focus on overall diabetes management, reductions in average blood sugar (HbA1C) as well as other markers that denote the degree and quality of blood sugar control, but can also encompass pain management, blood pressure control, and alleviation of symptoms associated with Parkinson's disease.

Given the size of the market for diabetes control and management, the current eBalance Technology has significant potential for success based solely on treating complications caused by diabetes. However, in order to capture a larger market share, the Device Manufacturer is looking into developing more specialized treatment options to target other ailments such as gout, hypertension, heart disease, neurological disorders, and depression.


Domain Name and Web Development Business

In addition to the Company's eBalance distribution business, the Company intends to maintain its domain name and website development business.  Some of its portfolio of domain names, continue to generate meaningful amounts of Internet traffic, which the Company attributes to, among other things, their generic descriptive nature of a product or services category.

Management believes that it can develop and sustain a business based on the lease, sale and other exploitation of domain names because, in part, of its ownership of a number of generic, intuitive domain names which attract significant numbers of visitors to websites utilizing those names. Moreover, because there are a limited number of potential domain names, the Company believes that the value of these names may be significant and may allow the Company to achieve both strategic relationships with leading participants in key Internet businesses and businesses that desire to expand using the Internet, as well as independent operations. Currently the Company owns two websites, Boxing.com and Number.com, which are operated through a verbal arrangement with an independent web developer.

The Company acquired a number of ".cn" domain names through a lottery-allocation in 2003 which are available to be developed.

Management of the company believe that the Company does not have enough cash on hand to manage its product distribution and web development operations for the next 12 months.

The Company did not recognize recurring revenues during the three- and six-month period ending June 30, 2019 or the three- and six- month period ending June 30, 2018.  The Company does not anticipate recognizing recurring revenues until late second half of 2019 after it has launched the marketing of eBalance.  The Company continues to market its domain names in its portfolio and considers offers received for domain names in its portfolio.  The Company believes its portfolio of domain names will continue to maintain its value over time.  Although the Company's arrangement with the web developer for Boxing.com and Number.com calls for revenues to be split between the Company and the web developer, advertising revenues for those sites has been minimal.  As such, the Company has permitted the web developer to retain the advertising revenue to offset against the developer's costs of operating those sites.  The Company does not anticipate earning significant advertising revenue from Boxing.com or Number.com in the near future.


At June 30, 2019, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $18,028,370.  The Company is presently in the development stage of their business and cannot provide any assurances that it will be able to generate regular or recurring revenues in the near future.

Results of Operation

The Company recorded a net profit of $73,204 for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 compared to a net loss of $80,133 for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.  The difference is the result of a one time gain of $146,700 resulting from a domain name sale.

During the six months ended June 30, 2019, the Company recorded a net loss of $42,964 compared with a net loss of $165,216 during the six months ending June 30, 2018.  The largest portion of the difference between these two time periods is the result of a one time gain from the sale of a domain name.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

At June 30, 2019, the Company had working capital surplus of $265,416, a decrease from the Company's working capital of $308,380 at December 31, 2018.  During the six months ended June 30, 2019 the Company had negative operating cash flow.  Due to the fact that the Company has incurred recurring losses and anticipates incurring further losses in the future, there is substantial doubt as to the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

The Company does not believe that it has the necessary cash requirements for the next 12 months without having to raise additional funds.

The Company does not anticipate purchasing any plant or significant equipment in the immediate future

OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS

The Company has no significant off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on its financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that is material to shareholders.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

The Company reviews individual domain names in the portfolio for potential impairment throughout the fiscal year in determining whether a particular URL should be renewed. Impairment is recognized for names that are not renewed. The Company performs a qualitative assessment of the portfolio of domain names in the fourth quarter of each year, to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair market value of a domain name is less than its carrying amount. As part of the assessment, certain qualitative factors are considered, including macro-economic conditions, industry and market conditions, non-renewal of names, as well as other factors. If there are indications of impairment following the qualitative impairment testing, further quantitative impairment testing would be necessary. When it is determined that the fair value of a domain name is less than its carrying amount, impairment is recognized.

There have been no material changes to the critical accounting policies as previously disclosed on our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, which was filed on April 1, 2019

RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS


There are no new accounting pronouncements that materially impact the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements.

ITEM 3.  QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.

Not applicable.

ITEM 4.  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

As of June 30, 2019, an evaluation was performed under the supervision and with the participation of the Company's management, including its principal executive officer and principal financial officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures.  These controls and procedures are based on the definition of disclosure controls and procedures in Rule 13a-15(e) and Rule 15d-15(e) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Based on that evaluation as of June 30, 2019, the Company's management, including its principal executive officer and principal financial officer, concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective to ensure that the information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files or submits under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms. 

Management, including the Company's principal financial officer and principal executive officer, have concluded that the Company's disclosure controls and procedures provide reasonable assurance that the controls and procedures will meet management's desired control objectives.  In designing and evaluating the Company's control system, management recognized that any control system, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance of achieving the desired control objectives. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, that may affect the Company's operations have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake.

During the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2019, there were no changes in the Company's internal control over financial reporting that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting. 


PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

ITEM 1.  LEGAL PROCEEDINGS.

The Company was not involved in any material legal proceedings during the interim period ended June 30, 2019.

ITEM 1A.  RISK FACTORS.

An investment in the Company's securities involves a high degree of risk.  You should carefully consider the risks described below and the other information in this registration statement before investing in its common shares. If any of the following risks occur, the Company's business, operating results and financial condition could be seriously harmed. The trading price of its common shares could decline due to any of these risks, and you may lose all or part of your investment.

You should consider each of the following risk factors and the other information in this registration statement, including the Company's financial statements and the related notes, in evaluating its business and prospects. The risks and uncertainties described below are not the only ones that impact on the Company's business. Additional risks and uncertainties not presently known to the Company or that the Company currently consider immaterial may also impair its business operations.  If any of the following risks do occur, its business and financial results could be harmed. In that case, the trading price of its common stock could decline.

Risks Associated with the Company's Domain Name and Website Development Business

Effect of Existing Governmental Regulation.  The Company's services are subject to significant regulation at the federal, state and local levels. Delays in receiving required regulatory approvals or the enactment of new adverse regulation or regulatory requirements may have a negative impact upon the Company and its business.

Licensing.  Currently, other than business and operations licenses applicable to most commercial ventures, the Company is not required to obtain any governmental approval for its business operations, although the Company applies to ICANN and its contractors to obtain and maintain its domain name assets.  There can be no assurance, however, that governmental institutions will not, in the future, impose licensing or other requirements on the Company.  Additionally, as noted below, there are a variety of laws and regulations that may, directly or indirectly, have an impact on the Company's business.

Privacy Legislation and Regulations.  While the Company is not currently subject to licensing requirements, entities engaged in operations over the Internet, particularly relating to the collection of user information, are subject to limitations on their ability to utilize such information under federal and state legislation and regulation. In 2000, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act required that the collection of identifiable information regarding users of financial services be subject to stringent disclosure and "opt-out" provisions. While this law and the regulations enacted by the Federal Trade Commission and others relates primarily to information relating to financial transactions and financial institutions, the broad definitions of those terms may make the businesses entered into by the Company and its strategic partners subject to the provisions of the Act. This, in turn, may increase the cost of doing business and make it unattractive to collect and transfer information regarding users of services. This, in turn, may reduce the revenues of the Company and its strategic partners, thus reducing potential revenues and profitability. Similarly, the Children On-line Privacy and Protection Act ("COPPA") imposes strict limitations on the ability of Internet ventures to collect information from minors. The impact of COPPA may be to increase the cost of doing business on the Internet and reducing potential revenue sources. The Company may also be impacted by the US Patriot Act, which requires certain companies to collect and provide information to United States governmental authorities. A number of state governments have also proposed or enacted privacy legislation that reflects or, in some cases, extends the limitations imposed by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and COPPA. These laws may further impact the cost of doing business on the Internet and the attractiveness of Live Current's inventory of domain names.


Advertising Regulations.  In response to concerns regarding "spam" (unsolicited electronic messages), "pop-up" web pages and other Internet advertising, the federal government and a number of states have adopted or proposed laws and regulations which would limit the use of unsolicited Internet advertisements. While a number of factors may prevent the effectiveness of such laws and regulations, the cumulative effect may be to limit the attractiveness of effecting sales on the Internet, thus reducing the value of the Company's inventory of domain names.

There are currently few laws or regulations that specifically regulate communications or commerce on the Internet.  However, laws and regulations may be adopted in the future that address issues such as user privacy, pricing and the characteristics and quality of products and services.  For example, the Telecommunications Act of 1996 sought to prohibit transmitting various types of information and content over the Internet.  Several telecommunications companies have petitioned the Federal Communications Commission to regulate Internet service providers and on-line service providers in a manner similar to long distance telephone carriers and to impose access fees on those companies.  This could increase the cost of transmitting data over the Internet.  Moreover, it may take years to determine the extent to which existing laws relating to issues such as intellectual property ownership, libel and personal privacy are applicable to the Internet.  Any new laws or regulations relating to the Internet or any new interpretations of existing laws could have a negative impact on Live Current's business and add additional costs to doing business on the Internet.

Effect of new root domain names.  The Company's business is subject to a number of risks. In addition to competitive risks, the Company is engaged in businesses that are not currently profitable, and there can be no assurance that the Company's business strategy will ever lead to profits. Moreover, the Company relies upon an inventory of generic domain names for lease, sale, and other ventures, which are made up mostly of ".com" suffixes.  The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ("ICANN") has introduced the introduction of additional new domain name suffixes, which may be as or more attractive than the ".com" domain name suffix.  New root domain names may have the effect of allowing the entrance of new competitors at limited cost, which may further reduce the value of the Company's domain name assets. The Company does not presently intend to acquire domain names using newly authorized root domain names to match its existing domain names, although the Company has certain .cn (China) root domain names to complement its growth strategy.

Competition.  The Company competes with many companies possessing greater financial resources and technical facilities than itself in the B2B2C (business-to-business-to-consumer) market as well as for the recruitment and retention of qualified personnel. In addition, while the Company holds title to a wide variety of generic names that may prove valuable, many of the Company's competitors have a very diverse portfolio of names and have not confined their market to one industry, product or service, but offer a wide array of multi-layered businesses consisting of many different customer and industry partners. Some of these competitors have been in business for longer than the Company and may have established more strategic partnerships and relationships than the Company. In addition, as noted above, ICANN regularly develops new domain name suffixes that will have the result of making a number of domain names available in different formats, many of which may be more attractive than the formats held by the Company.

New Products and Services.  The Company seeks to develop a portfolio of operating businesses either by itself or by entering into arrangements with businesses that operate in the product or service categories that are described by the domain name assets owned by DHI. The Company has not, however, identified specific business opportunities other than Boxing.com and Number.com at this point and there can be no assurance that it will do so.

Dependence on One or a Few Major Customers.  The Company does not currently depend on any single customer for a significant proportion of its business. However, as the Company enters into strategic transactions, the Company may choose to grant exclusive rights to a small number of parties or otherwise limit its activities that could, in turn, create such dependence. The Company, however, has no current plans to do so.

Patents, Trademarks and Proprietary Rights.  On November 16, 2007, The Company filed a trademark application with the US Patent & Trademark Office ("USPTO") for the mark "LIVE CURRENT".  A certificate of registration was issued on October 14, 2008 and the mark was assigned registration number 3,517,876.


The Company will consider seeking further trademark protection for its online businesses and the associated domain names, however, the Company may be unable to avail itself of trademark protection under United States laws because, among other things, the names are generic and intuitive. Consequently, the Company will seek trademark protection only where it has determined that the cost of obtaining protection, and the scope of protection provided, results in a meaningful benefit to the Company.

Risks Related to the Company's eBalance Distribution Business

Competitive Marketplace for Medical and Wellness Devices.  The eBalance device operates in a highly competitive market. eBalance devices will face competition from devices manufactured and marketed by large, well established medical and wellness device manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies in the market for treating and managing diabetes and related ailments.  Many of these companies and their devices are very well accepted by health practitioners and have significant resources, and the Company may not be able to compete effectively.

The market for treatment and management of diabetes and related ailments is intensely competitive, subject to rapid change and significantly affected by new product introductions. The eBalance device competes indirectly with large pharmaceutical and medical device companies, such as Bayer Corp., Becton Dickinson Corp., LifeScan Inc., a division of Johnson & Johnson, the MediSense Inc. and TheraSense Inc. These competitors' products are based on traditional healthcare model and are well accepted by health practitioners and patients. If these companies decide to penetrate the target market for the eBalance device, they could threaten threaten the Company's ability to market and distribute the eBalance device.

Developing Technology with Numerous Governmental Regulations.  The eBalance device will be subject to rigorous regulation by the FDA, Health Canada and numerous international, supranational, federal, and state authorities. The process of obtaining regulatory approvals to market a medical device can be costly and time-consuming, and approvals might not be granted for future products, or additional indications or uses of existing products, on a timely basis, if at all. Delays in the receipt of, or failure to obtain approvals for, the eBalance products, or new indications and uses, could result in delayed realization of product revenues, reduction in revenues, and in substantial additional costs. In addition, no assurance can be given that the eBalance device will remain in compliance with applicable FDA, Health Canada and other regulatory requirements once approval or marketing authorization has been obtained. These requirements include, among other things, regulations regarding manufacturing practices, product labeling, and advertising and postmarketing reporting, including adverse event reports and field alerts due to manufacturing quality concerns.

Changes in the health care regulatory environment may adversely affect our business.  A number of the provisions of the U.S. Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 and its amendments changed access to health care products and services and established new fees for the medical device industry. Future rulemaking could increase rebates, reduce prices or the rate of price increases for health care products and services, or require additional reporting and disclosure. The Company cannot predict the timing or impact of any future rulemaking.

Inability of Cell MedX to protect and enforce intellectual property rights.  As a distributor of the eBalance device, the Company is reliant on the intellectual property rights of Cell MedX to its technology.  If Cell MedX is unable to defend, protect and enforce its intellectual property rights, the Company's ability to distribute eBalance devices could adversely be affected. In addition, an adverse outcome in any litigation or interference proceeding could subject the Company to significant liabilities to third parties and require the Company to cease distributing eBalance devices. In addition, a finding that any of Cell MedX's intellectual property rights are invalid could allow competitors to more easily and cost-effectively develop and manufacture competing devices. Thus, an unfavorable outcome in any patent litigation or interference proceeding could have a material adverse effect on the Company's future business prospects, financial condition or results of operations.

eBalance Device is Unproven.  The eBalance device is a new product to the health, wellness and medical device space, and a commercial market has not yet developed.  The Company's future success will depend on its ability to work with Cell MedX to develop a market for the eBalance device and to gain commercial acceptance of the eBalance device and the eBalance Technology.


Lack of Operating History in Marketplace.  The Company does not have any operating history or experience in the distribution of medical or wellness devices.  A lack of experience in this marketplace could make it more difficult for the Company to compete.  In addition, the Company's lack of experience in this space makes it difficult to assess or estimate its future potential.  Success has yet to be proven and financial losses should be expected to continue in the near future.

Risks Related to the Company's Securities

The Company's stock price is volatile.  The stock markets in general, and the stock prices of internet companies in particular, have experienced extreme volatility that often has been unrelated to the operating performance of any specific public company.  The market price of the Company's Common Stock is likely to fluctuate in the future, especially if the Company's Common Stock is thinly traded.  Factors that may have a significant impact on the market price of the Company's Common Stock include:

(a) actual or anticipated variations in the Company's results of operations;

(b) the Company's ability or inability to generate new revenues;

(c) increased competition;

(d) government regulations, including internet regulations;

(e) conditions and trends in the internet industry;

(f) proprietary rights; or

(g) rumors or allegations regarding the Company's financial disclosures or practices.

The Company's stock price may be impacted by factors that are unrelated or disproportionate to its operating performance. These market fluctuations, as well as general economic, political and market conditions, such as recessions, interest rates or international currency fluctuations may adversely affect the market price of the Company's Common Stock.

The Company does not expect to pay dividends in the foreseeable future.  The Company has never paid cash dividends on its Common Stock and has no plans to do so in the foreseeable future.  The Company intends to retain earnings, if any, to develop and expand its business.

"Penny Stock" rules may make buying or selling the Company's Common Stock difficult, and severely limit its market and liquidity.  Trading in The Company's Common Stock is subject to certain regulations adopted by the SEC commonly known as the "penny stock" rules.  The Company's Common Stock qualifies as penny stocks and are covered by Section 15(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which imposes additional sales practice requirements on broker/dealers who sell the Common Stock in the aftermarket.  The "penny stock" rules govern how broker-dealers can deal with their clients and "penny stocks".  For sales of The Company's Common Stock, the broker/dealer must make a special suitability determination and receive from you a written agreement prior to making a sale to you.  The additional burdens imposed upon broker-dealers by the "penny stock" rules may discourage broker-dealers from effecting transactions in The Company's Common Stock, which could severely limit their market price and liquidity of its Common Stock.  This could prevent you from reselling your shares and may cause the price of the Common Stock to decline.

Lack of operating revenues.  The Company has limited operating revenues and is expected to continue to do so for the foreseeable future.  Management has assessed the Company's ability to continue as a going concern and the financial statements included with this registration statement includes disclosure that there is a substantial doubt as to the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.  The audit report of the Company's principal independent accountants for the years ended December 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017 includes a statement regarding the uncertainty of the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.  The Company's failure to achieve profitability and positive operating revenues could have a material adverse effect on its financial condition and results of operations, and could cause the Company's business to fail.

No assurance that forward-looking assessments will be realized.  The Company's ability to accomplish their objectives and whether or not they are financially successful is dependent upon numerous factors, each of which could have a material effect on the results obtained. Some of these factors are in the discretion and control of management and others are beyond management's control. The assumptions and hypotheses used in preparing any forward-looking assessments contained herein are considered reasonable by management. There can be no assurance, however, that any projections or assessments contained herein or otherwise made by management will be realized or achieved at any level.


FOR ALL OF THE AFORESAID REASONS AND OTHERS SET-FORTH AND NOT SET-FORTH HEREIN, AN INVESTMENT IN OUR SECURITIES INVOLVES A CERTAIN DEGREE OF RISK. ANY PERSON CONSIDERING TO INVEST IN OUR SECURITIES SHOULD BE AWARE OF THESE AND OTHER FACTORS SET-FORTH IN THIS REPORT AND IN THE OTHER REPORTS AND DOCUMENTS THAT WE FILE FROM TIME TO TIME WITH THE SEC AND SHOULD CONSULT WITH HIS/HER LEGAL, TAX AND FINANCIAL ADVISORS PRIOR TO MAKING AN INVESTMENT IN OUR SECURITIES. AN INVESTMENT IN OUR SECURITIES SHOULD ONLY BE ACQUIRED BY PERSONS WHO CAN AFFORD TO LOSE THEIR TOTAL INVESTMENT.
