PART I

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

Certain statements contained in this registration statement 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 "Part II, Item 1A. Risk Factors" of this annual report on Form 10-K.

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 "Part II, Item 1A. Risk Factors" of this annual report on Form 10-K.

The Company intends to discuss in their 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.

As used in this registration statement, unless the context otherwise requires, "we," "us," "our," the "Company" and "Live Current" refers to Live Current Media, Inc.  All dollar amounts in this registration statement are in U.S. dollars unless otherwise stated.


ITEM 1. BUSINESS

General

Live Current Media, Inc. (the "Company") was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on October 10, 1995.  The Company has an authorized capital of 500,000,000 shares of common stock with 34,837,625 shares currently issued and outstanding.

The Company is the sole shareholder of 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, Inc. (95% ownership), formed under the laws of the State of Delaware on March 13, 2008.  Perfume, Inc. is currently dormant and does not carry on an active business.  References herein to the Company include DHI and Perfume, Inc. (collectively, the "Subsidiaries") unless otherwise stated.

On March 21, 2019, the Company executed a distribution agreement (the "Distribution Agreement") with Cell MedX Corp. ("Cell MedX" or the "Device Manufacturer"), pursuant to which Cell MedX granted to the Company exclusive worldwide rights to distribute the eBalance microcurrent device to households and individual users.  Subsequent to the year ended 2019, the Company agreed to sell the distribution rights to the eBalance device back to Cell MedX Corp. pursuant to an agreement dated January 29, 2020. 

In the fourth quarter of 2019, the Company reorganized its business operations with the development and addition of two eSports and Gaming products, SPRT MTRX and Boxing.com FEDERATION.  eSports and Gaming will be the Company's focus moving forward.

Domain Name and Website Development Business

During the fiscal year 2019, DHI was in the business of utilizing its exclusive ownership of domain names to develop internet-related business ventures.  The Company, through DHI, holds title to a portfolio of approximately one hundred (100) intuitive, generic domains, such as Electronic.com, Boxing.com and Stereos.com, which inherently attract a stream of online visitors. The Company is now actively seeking to sell the domain names that do not fit into its eSports and Gaming venture and exit the domain name business.  Boxing.com is the only existing domain name that fits the description of an eSports and Gaming domain and is currently under development.

Distribution of Cell MedX eBalance Devices

On March 21, 2019, the Company executed the Distribution Agreement with Cell MedX, pursuant to which Cell MedX granted to the Company an exclusive worldwide license to distribute its eBalance microcurrent device to households and individual users.  To acquire these rights, the Company paid to Cell MedX the sum of $250,000, the full amount of which was paid to Cell MedX upon signing of the letter of intent between the Company and Cell MedX in September 2018.  Under the terms of the Distribution Agreement, the Company has agreed to pay to Cell MedX a fee (the "License Fee") for each eBalance device sold.  In addition, the users of the eBalance device were to be charged a periodic user fee (the "User Fee") that will be split between the Company and Cell MedX.  To maintain its exclusive distribution rights, the Company was subject to minimum sales and, after a period of time, minimum User Fee, requirements.  If the Company failed to meet the minimum sales requirements, the Company would have maintain its distribution rights, however those rights would cease to be exclusive.

During the fourth quarter of 2019, the Company made the decision to exit the medical device distribution business and agreed to sell the rights back to Cell MedX pursuant to an agreement dated January 29, 2020.  Under the terms of the agreement, the Company sold the Distribution Rights back to Cell MedX in consideration for a royalty on future sales of the eBalance device capped at US$507,500, plus warrants to purchase up to 2,000,000 shares in the common stock of Cell MedX (the "Warrants") exercisable for a period of three (3) years.  1,000,000 of the Warrants are exercisable at a price of $US0.50 per share (the "$0.50 Warrants"), with the remaining 1,000,000 Warrants exercisable at US$1.00 per share (the "$1.00 Warrants").  The Warrants are subject to an acceleration right, with the $0.50 Warrants being subject to acceleration if Cell MedX's common stock trades at or above $1.00 per share for 30 consecutive trading days, and the $1.00 Warrants being subject to acceleration if Cell MedX's common stock trades at or above $1.75 per share for 30 consecutive trading days.  Cell MedX may buyout the royalty at any time during the first twelve months following the effective date of the agreement for 85% of the remaining amount of the royalty still payable.


eSports and Gaming

Market.  70% of Americans play games online.  54% of those gamers are male, 46% are female and 52% are college educated.  60% play on their mobile devices.  Gamers play for mental stimulation, relaxation and stress relief, while prize money is a major inducement.

In 2019, eSports prize money topped $1 billion for the first time, increasing 10-fold from prizes awarded in 2010, with expectations that prizes will keep accelerating to reach $1.8 billion by 2022 according to Statista.  Competitions can have prizes ranging far north of $1 million.

In addition, gaming advertising revenue has doubled in the last two years.  The most common platform for playing games is the smartphone leaving no doubt as to why gaming is taking off.

SPRT MTRX

SPRT MTRX is a gaming app, available in both iPhone and Android versions, in which players bid on the final scores of NHL games.  The events are organized as "Challenges" and cover multiple games over one day.  A cash prize is awarded to the player who receives the most points for correctly bidding on the final scores of the hockey games included in the Challenge.  The system for bidding on the final scores is unique in the gaming industry. 

Business Model.  The business model entails offering free prizes for playing the game, developing a large contingent of users and delivering advertisements.  This model has proven popular among gamers as the lure of free money is a very attractive inducement. 

Development.  The Company will continue to develop and enhance the SPRT MTRX through 2020 by adding additional functionality and more sports such as NFL, MLB, NBA and EPL but does not anticipate generating any significant revenue from SPRT MTRX in fiscal 2020.

Boxing.com FEDERATION

Boxing.com FEDERATION is being developed to mimic what the sport of boxing should be.  But the fights will be fought by gamers on their computers.

League.  FEDERATION will consist of an amateur league where fighters hone their skills and can win amateur belts with small cash prizes and a professional league where fighters win title belts and larger cash prizes.  The top amateurs will automatically join the professional league where fighters can win title belts in nine different weight classes and cash prizes for getting in to the top 10 fighters per weight class.  There will also be title belts for champions in each country in the world just as there is in real boxing.  These champions will also receive cash prizes for winning their belts.

Ranking.  The ranking system will be organized by a digital algorithm to be designed by Live Current's engineers.  Fighters can challenge other fighters in the FEDERATION by choosing those within 100 of their own placing in the rankings.  Only fighters who are online can be challenged and they must accept the challenge or drop in the rankings to the spot of the challenger.  If they accept the challenge and lose, they only drop one place but get an L on their record.  Rankings will be automatically adjusted monthly to promote activity and discourage inactivity.

Schedule.  FEDERATION is scheduled for release in 2021.  The Company does not anticipate generating revenue from FEDERATION in 2020.

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

ITEM1A. RISK FACTORS

An investment in the Company's common shares 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 eSports and Gaming 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.  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 and promoting sales on the Internet, thus reducing the value of the Company's advertising driven revenue model.

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.

Competition.  The Company competes with many companies possessing greater financial resources and technical facilities than itself in the B2C (business-to-consumer) market as well as for the recruitment and retention of qualified personnel. In addition, some of these competitors have been in business for longer than Live Current and may have established more strategic partnerships and relationships than the Company.

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, however, the Company may be unable to avail itself of trademark protection under United States laws. 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.

Market Acceptance.  Both SPRT MTRX and FEDERATION are new products in a product abundant gaming market and there is no guarantee that they will be accepted by the market.  In addition to acceptance, should they be accepted, there is no guarantee that they will maintain their popularity in a notoriously fickle gaming market.

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, 2019 and December 31, 2018 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.


ITEM 2. PROPERTIES

The Company does not currently have any interests in any real property.

The Company and its Subsidiaries operate from their principal office at 50 West Liberty Street, Suite 880, Reno, Nevada. The Company's telephone number is (604) 648-0501.

ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

Wrongful Dismissal Proceedings with Former CEO of DHI

On March 9, 2000, a former Chief Executive Officer of DHI commenced a legal action against DHI for wrongful dismissal and breach of contract.  He is seeking, at a minimum, 18.39% of the outstanding shares of DHI, specific performance of his contract, special damages of approximately $30,000, aggravated and punitive damages, interest and costs. On June 1, 2000, DHI filed a defense and counterclaim claiming damages and special damages for breach of fiduciary duty and breach of his employment contract. The plaintiff has taken no further action.

Dividend Rights

There are no provisions in the Company's articles of incorporation or bylaws restricting the Company's ability to pay dividends on our common stock.  Chapter 78 of the Nevada Revised Statutes (the "NRS") does provide certain limitations on the Company's ability to declare and pay dividends.  Section 78.288 of the NRS prohibits the Company from declaring dividends where, after giving effect to the distribution of the dividend:

(a) The Company would not be able to pay its debts as they become due in the usual course of business; or

(b) Except as allowed in the Company's articles of incorporation the Company's total assets would be less than the sum of the Company's total liabilities plus the amount that would be needed to satisfy any preferential rights.

The Company has never declared, nor paid, any dividend since their incorporation and they do not foresee paying any dividend in the near future since all available funds will be used to conduct the Company's business development activities.  Any future payment of dividends will depend on its financing requirements and financial condition and other factors which the board of directors, in its sole discretion, may consider appropriate.

Recent Sales of Unregistered Securities

During the past three years, the Company has not sold any securities.

The following selected financial data was derived from the Company's audited and unaudited financial statements.  The information set forth below should be read in conjunction with the Company's financial statements and related notes included elsewhere in this registration statement. In addition, the Company expects to focus its resources on the development of its eSports and Gaming business in the near future.  This business is significantly different from the domain name and web development business that the Company has historically been engaged in.  As a result, historical results and capital requirements are not expected to be reflective of the Company's financial results and capital requirements moving forward.

Revenue

The Company recognized a gain of $359,200 from the sale of domain names during the year ended December 31, 2019 (2018 - $nil).  The Company did not recognize recurring revenues during its 2019 or 2018 fiscal years.  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.  The Company does not anticipate earning significant advertising revenue from Boxing.com or SPRT MTRX in the 2020 fiscal year.

The Company has an accumulated deficit of $17,969,641 to December 31, 2019.  The Company is presently in the development stage of its business and cannot provide any assurances that it will be able to generate regular or recurring revenues in the near future.

Results of Operation

Year Ended December 31, 2019 and 2018

The Company recorded a net profit of $15,765 for the year ended December 31, 2019 and net loss of $770,853 for the year ended December 31, 2018.  The difference is the result of three extraordinary transactions as follows:  During the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company incurred non-cash expenses of $113,336 related to the issuance of options to management, directors and consultants as compared to $nil for the year ended December 31, 2019. In addition, due to the uncertainty associated with the commercial success of the e-Balance device, the Company expensed the balance of the $250,000 deposit paid on the execution of the letter of intent with Cell MedX in the year ended December 31, 2018.  And in the year ended December 31, 2019 the Company had an extraordinary gain of $359,200 from the sale of domain names compared to $0 in the year ended December 31, 2018.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

At December 31, 2019, the Company had a working capital surplus of $324,145, compared to $308,380 at December 31, 2018.  The Company's only source of cashflow during the year ended December 31, 2019 was through the sale of domain names totaling $359,200.  Due to the fact that the Company has incurred recurring losses and anticipates incurring further losses in the future, the Company has determined there is substantial doubt as to its ability to continue as a going concern.


The Company does not believe 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

On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) ("ASU 2014-09"), which amended the existing accounting standards for revenue recognition. ASU 2014-09 establishes principles for recognizing revenue upon the transfer of promised goods or services to customers, in an amount that reflects the expected consideration received in exchange for those goods or services.  The Company adopted ASU 2014-09 effective January 1, 2018 and applied the modified retrospective approach.  There was no impact to the Company's recognition of revenue as a consequence of adopting this new standard. 

Other recent accounting pronouncements issued by the FASB (including its Emerging Issues Task Force), the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and the SEC did not, or are not believed by management to, have a material impact on the Company's present or future financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

December 31, 2019

(Expressed in US Dollars)



Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

To the shareholders and the board of directors of Live Current Media Inc.

Opinion on the Consolidated Financial Statements
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Live Current Media Inc. (the "Company") as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ equity and cash flows for the years then ended, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the "financial statements"). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Going Concern 
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern.  As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Company has not achieved profitable operations with further losses anticipated and has an accumulated deficit of $17,969,641.  The Company requires additional funds to meet its obligations and the costs of its operations.  These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.  Management’s plans in this regard are described in Note 1.  The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty

Basis for Opinion
These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company's financial statements based on our audits. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) ("PCAOB") and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. As part of our audits we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB.

Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

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 under the name "IMEDIAT Digital Creations Inc.". On April 14, 1999, IMEDIAT Creations, Inc. changed its name to "Communicate.com Inc." and was redomiciled from British Columbia to the jurisdiction of Alberta. On April 5, 2002, Communicate.com Inc. changed its name to Domain Holdings Inc.

On March 13, 2008, the Company incorporated a wholly owned subsidiary in the state of Delaware, Perfume.com Inc. (Perfume Inc.) which is a dormant and inactive company.

Live Current is a technology company involved in the entertainment industry.  Currently developing two projects for release in 2020, Boxing.com FEDERATION and SPRT MTRX, both of which are positioned in the eSports and gaming sector.

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. As of December 31, 2019, the Company has not achieved profitable operations, has incurred recurring operating losses and further losses are possible. The Company has an accumulated deficit of $17,969,641. 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 operations through the issuance of capital stock and debt. Management plans to continue raising additional funds through equity or debt financings and loans from directors. There is no certainty that further funding will be available as needed. These factors 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.

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

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

Basis of Presentation

These consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances have been eliminated on consolidation.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The Company regularly evaluates estimates and assumptions. The Company bases its estimates and assumptions on current facts, historical experience and various other factors it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the accrual of costs and expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. The actual results experienced by the Company may differ materially and adversely from the Company's estimates. To the extent there are material differences between the estimates and the actual results, future results of operations will be affected.

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

Cash and cash equivalents

All highly liquid investments, with an original term to maturity of three months or less are classified as cash and cash equivalents. Cash and cash equivalents are stated at cost which approximates market value.

Intangible Assets not subject to amortization

Intangible assets not subject to amortization consist of direct navigation domain names. While the domain names are renewed annually, through payment of a renewal fee to the applicable registry, the Company has the exclusive right to renew these names at its option. The Company has determined that there are currently no legal, regulatory, contractual, economic or other factors that limit the useful life of these domain names on an aggregate basis and accordingly treat the portfolio of domain names as indefinite life intangible assets.

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 an annual assessment of individual domain names in its portfolio to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair market value of a domain name is less than its carrying amount. When it is determined that the fair value of a domain name is less than its carrying amount, impairment is recognized.

Foreign Currency Translation

The Company's functional currency is the US dollar and reporting currency is the United States dollar. The Company translates assets and liabilities to US dollars using year-end exchange rates, stockholders' deficit accounts are translated at historical exchange rates, and translates revenues and expenses using average exchange rates during the period. Gains and losses arising on settlement of foreign currency denominated transactions or balances are included in the Statement of Operations. 

Income taxes

The Company follows the liability method of accounting for income taxes.  Under this method, current income taxes are recognized for the estimated income taxes payable for the current year.  Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are recognized in the current year for temporary differences between the tax and accounting basis of assets and liabilities as well as for the benefit of losses available to be carried forward to future years for tax purposes.  Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are measured using tax rates and laws expected to apply in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled.  The effect of a change in tax rates on deferred income tax assets and liabilities is recognized in operations in the year of change.  A valuation allowance is recorded when it is "more likely-than-not" that a deferred tax asset will not be realized.  Deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities, along with any associated valuation allowance, are offset and shown in the financial statements as a single noncurrent amount when these items arise within the same tax jurisdiction.

The Company and its subsidiaries are subject to U.S. federal income tax and Canadian income tax, as well as income tax of multiple state and local jurisdictions. Based on the Company's evaluation, the Company has concluded that there are no significant uncertain tax positions requiring recognition in the Company's financial statements.

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

Share Based Payments

The Company accounts for all stock-based payments and awards under the fair value based method. The Company accounts for the granting of stock options to employees using the fair value method whereby all awards to employees will be measured at fair value on the date of the grant. The fair value of all stock options are expensed over their vesting period with a corresponding increase to additional paid-in capital. Upon exercise of stock options, the consideration paid by the option holder, together with the amount previously recognized in additional paid-in capital is recorded as an increase to share capital. Stock options granted to employees are accounted for as liabilities when they contain conditions or other features that are indexed to other than a market, performance or service condition. Stock-based payments to non-employees are measured at the fair value of the consideration received, or the fair value of the equity instruments issued, or liabilities incurred, whichever is more reliably measurable. The fair value of stock-based payments to non-employees is periodically re-measured until the counterparty performance is complete, and any change therein is recognized over the vesting period of the award and in the same manner as if the Company had paid cash instead of paying with or using equity based instruments. The fair value of the stock-based payments to non-employees that are fully vested and non-forfeitable as at the grant date are measured and recognized at that date.

The Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model to calculate the fair value of stock options. The use of the Black-Scholes option pricing model requires management to make assumptions with respect to the expected term of the option, the expected volatility of the common stock consistent with the expected term of the option, risk-free interest rates, the value of the common stock and expected dividend yield of the common stock. Changes in these assumptions can materially affect the fair value estimate.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The estimated fair values for financial instruments are determined based on relevant market information. These estimates involve uncertainties and cannot be determined with precision. The estimated fair value of cash, receivable, accounts payable and amounts due to shareholders of Auctomatic approximate their carrying value due to the short-term nature of those instruments.

ASC 820 establishes a fair value hierarchy based on the level of independent, objective evidence surrounding the inputs used to measure fair value. A financial instrument's categorization within the fair value hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. ASC 820 prioritizes the inputs into three levels that may be used to measure fair value:

Level 1 - Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;

Level 2 - Inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are either directly or indirectly observable; and

Level 3 - Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity, there for requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions about the assumption that market participants would use in pricing.

The Company had no Level 3 assets or liabilities required to be recorded at fair value on a recurring basis in accordance with US GAAP as at December 31, 2019 and 2018.

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

Basic and Diluted Income (Loss) per Share

Earnings or loss per share ("EPS") is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted-average of all potentially dilutive shares of the common stock that were outstanding during the years presented. The treasury stock method is used in calculating diluted EPS for potentially dilutive stock options and share purchase warrants, which assumes that any proceeds received from the exercise of in-the-money stock options and share purchase warrants, would be used to purchase common shares at the average market price for the period.

Adoption of New Accounting Pronouncement

On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) ("ASU 2014-09"), which amended the existing accounting standards for revenue recognition. ASU 2014-09 establishes principles for recognizing revenue upon the transfer of promised goods or services to customers, in an amount that reflects the expected consideration received in exchange for those goods or services.  The Company adopted ASU 2014-09 effective January 1, 2018 and applied the modified retrospective approach.  There was no impact to the Company's recognition of revenue as a consequence of adopting this new standard. 

3. SHARE CAPITAL

Authorized

The authorized capital of the Company consists of 500,000,000 shares of common stock with a par value of $0.001 per share. No other shares have been authorized

4.  STOCK OPTIONS

The Company's Stock Option Plan (the "Plan") provides the grant of 5,000,000 shares of common stock of the Company, subject to increase after March 31, 2019, upon approval by the Company's directors, provided that the total number of shares that may be optioned and sold under the Plan shall at no time be greater than 15% of total number of shares of common stock outstanding, less any options still outstanding under any previous stock option plan.

The Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model to calculate the fair value of stock options.  The use of the Black-Scholes option pricing model requires management to make assumptions with respect to the expected term of the option, the expected volatility of the common stock consistent with the expected term of the option, risk-free interest rates, the value of the common stock and expected dividend yield of the common stock.  Changes in these assumptions can materially affect the fair value estimates

On November 30, 2018, the board of directors granted 1,000,000 options to the CEO, 400,000 options to its directors and 400,000 options to consultants. 

The fair value of the options granted to the CEO, directors and consultants calculated to be $59,712, $23,885, and $23,885. Total $107,482.  The fair values were determined using the Black-Scholes Option Pricing model with the following assumptions:.

5. DOMAIN PROCEEDS RECEIVABLE 

On October 6, 2017, the Company sold a domain name for total consideration of $150,000 less a brokerage fee of $15,000. The domain purchase and transfer agreement included terms that allowed the purchaser to make monthly instalment payments of $7,500, net of the brokerage fee, over a period of 18 months. The domain was being held by an independent escrow agent during the period the remaining balance in respect of this sale was outstanding. The purchaser was entitled to control the domain name while being held in escrow but, in the event of a default that is not successfully remedied, all rights to the domain name would be transferred back to the Company and all payments made by the purchaser would be forfeited. As at December 31, 2019 the remaining balance is $NIL, and the domain name was released from escrow. 

6. DEPOSIT 

On September 10, 2018, Live Current entered into a non-binding letter of intent (the "LOI") with Cell MedX Corp. (Cell MedX) for worldwide distribution rights of the e-Balance device for home-based usage. The e-Balance device is a micro-current therapy device designed to target complications arising from diabetes but has yet to receive approval from the Food and Drug Administration ("FDA").  Pursuant to the LOI, the Company agreed to enter into negotiations aimed at obtaining a definitive agreement within a 90-day period.  The Company advanced US$250,000 as a deposit for exclusive worldwide distribution rights. The probability of success and length of time to obtain Federal Drug Administration approval of the e-Balance device is difficult to determine and there are uncertainties associated with the timely completion of the device's commercial success. Due to the uncertainties associated with the successful commercialization of the e-Balance device, it has been determined that the payment of this deposit does not meet the definition of an asset and is thus expensed within general and administrative expenses.

On March 21, 2019, the Company executed an Agreement with 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 to Cell MedX the sum of $250,000, the full amount of which was paid to Cell MedX upon signing of the letter of intent between the Company and Cell MedX in September 2018.  Under the terms of the Distribution Agreement, the Company has agreed to pay to Cell MedX a fee (the "License Fee") for each e-Balance device sold.  In addition, the users of the e-Balance device will be charged a periodic user fee (the "User Fee") that will be split between the Company and Cell MedX.  To maintain its exclusive distribution rights, the Company is subject to minimum sales and, after a period of time, minimum User Fee, requirements.  If the Company fails to meet the minimum sales requirements, the Company will maintain its distribution rights, however those rights will cease to be exclusive.)

Subsequent to the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company sold the exclusive distribution right to the eBalance device to Cell Medx Corp. (Note 9).

ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

We carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act) as of December 31, 2019 (the "Evaluation Date").  This evaluation was carried out under the supervision and with the participation of our principal executive officer and principal financial officer.  Based upon that evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of the Evaluation Date. 

Management's Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act, for the Company.

Our internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that: (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of our assets; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles, and that our receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of our management and directors; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

Under the supervision and with the participation of our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, management conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting, as of the Evaluation Date, based on the framework set forth in Internal Control-Integrated Framework 2013 issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO).  Based on its evaluation under this framework, management concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was effective as of the Evaluation Date. 

This annual report does not include an attestation report of our registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting.  Management's report was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm pursuant to rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit us to provide only management's report in this annual report.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

As of the Evaluation Date, there were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019 that have materially affected, or that are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting. 

Limitations on the Effectiveness of Controls and Procedures

Our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, do not expect that our controls and procedures will prevent all potential error and fraud.  A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met

Joao (John) da Costa Mr. da Costa has more than twenty-five years of experience providing bookkeeping and accounting services to both private and public companies and is the founder and President of Da Costa Management Corp., a company that has provided management and accounting services to public and private companies since August 2003.  Since 2002, Mr. da Costa has been the CFO, and a member of the Board of Directors of Triton Emission Solutions Inc., a company reporting under the United States Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act").  In addition to Triton Emission Solutions Inc., Mr. da Costa currently serves as the CFO, Treasurer and a director of Red Metal Resources Ltd., a company reporting under the Exchange Act and engaged in the business of acquiring and exploring mineral claims.  Mr. da Costa also currently serves as the CFO and a director of Kesselrun Resources Ltd., a Canadian reporting company listed on the TSX Venture Exchange.

Term Of Office

The Company's directors are elected to hold office until the next annual meeting of the shareholders and until their respective successors have been elected and qualified. The Company's executive officers are appointed by its board of directors and hold office until removed by its board of directors or until their successors are appointed.

Other Significant Employees

Other than the Company's sole executive officer, the Company does not have any significant employees.

Audit Committee

The Company does not currently have a separately designated audit committee.  As such, the Company's entire board of directors acts as its audit committee.  The Company's board of directors has determined that Mr. da Costa qualifies as an "audit committee financial expert" as that term is defined in Item 407(d) of Regulation SK.  The OTCQB Marketplace, where the Company's securities are traded, does not have independence requirements.  In determining independence, the Company has applied the definition set out in NASDAQ Rule 5605(a)(2).  Mr. da Costa meets the qualifications for independence set forth in that rule. 


Code of Ethics

We adopted a Code of Ethics applicable to our officers and directors which is a "code of ethics" as defined by applicable rules of the SEC. If we make any amendments to our Code of Ethics other than technical, administrative, or other non-substantive amendments, or grant any waivers, including implicit waivers, from a provision of our Code of Ethics to our principal executive officer, principal financial officer, or certain other finance executives, we will disclose the nature of the amendment or waiver, its effective date and to whom it applies in a current report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC.  A copy of our Code of Ethics is attached as an exhibit to this Annual Report. 

DELINQUENT SECTION 16(a) REPORTS

Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act requires our executive officers and directors, and persons who own more than 10% of a registered class of our securities ("Reporting Persons"), to file reports of ownership and changes in ownership with the SEC.  Based solely on our review of the reports electronically filed by the Reporting Persons, the Company has determined that the following persons have failed to file, on a timely basis, the reports required by Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act during our fiscal year ended December 31, 2019:

Notes

(1) 100,000 options were granted outside of the Company's 2018 Stock Option Plan.

2018 Stock Option Plan

On November 28, 2018, our board of directors approved and adopted the Company's 2018 Stock Option Plan (the "Plan"). The purpose of the Plan is to enhance long-term shareholder value by offering the Company's directors, officers, employees and eligible consultants the ability to acquire and maintain stock ownership in the Company and to participate in the Company's future growth.

The Plan allows the board to grant awards to officers, directors, employees and certain eligible consultants. To be eligible for grants under the Plan, consultants must be individuals who (1) render bona fide services to the Company not connected to the offer or sale of the Company's securities in capital raising transactions, and (2) do not directly or indirectly promote or maintain a market for the Company's securities.

Initially, up to 5,000,000 shares of the Company's common stock may be purchased pursuant to options granted under the Plan. After March 31, 2019, the Board may increase the shares of common stock that may be purchased under the Plan, provided that the total number of shares that may be purchased under the Plan cannot exceed 15% of the total number of shares outstanding, less any options outstanding under previous stock option plans.

Awards under the Plan may be granted in the form of incentive stock options or non-qualified stock options. Incentive stock options granted under the Plan are those intended to qualify as "incentive stock options" as defined under Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code (the "Code"). To qualify as "incentive stock options" under Section 422 of the Code, the Plan must be approved by the stockholders of the Company within 12 months of its adoption. If the Plan is not approved by the Company's stockholders within 12 months of its adoption, any options granted as "incentive stock options" will be treated as "non-qualifying stock options". Non-qualified stock options granted under the Plan are option grants that do not qualify as incentive stock options under Section 422 of the Code.

The exercise price for incentive stock options granted under the Plan cannot be less than the fair market value of the Company's common stock on the date of grant (110% of fair market value for optionees that own 10% of the combined voting power of the Company). Non-qualified stock options may not have an exercise price less than 75% of fair market value at the time of grant. "Fair market value" for purposes of the Plan is defined as the lesser of the closing price of the Company's common stock on the day immediately preceding the date of grant, and the average closing price of the Company's common stock during the ten trading days immediately preceding the grant date, provided that the Company's common stock trades on a national securities exchange or the OTC Link system (maintained by OTC Markets Group Inc.). If the Company's common stock does not trade on the OTC Link or a national securities exchange in the United States, the Board may determine fair market value, acting in good faith.

Options granted under the Plan have a maximum term of ten years from the grant date, or such lesser period as determined by the Board.

Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management


The following table sets forth certain information concerning the number of common shares owned beneficially as of March 27, 2020 by: (i) each person (including any group) known to us to own more than five percent (5%) of any class of the Company's voting securities, (ii) each of its directors, (iii) each of its named executive officers; and (iv) officers and directors as a group. Unless otherwise indicated, the shareholders listed possess sole voting and investment power with respect to the shares shown.

Notes:

(1) Under Rule 13d-3, a beneficial owner of a security includes any person who, directly or indirectly, through any contract, arrangement, understanding, relationship, or otherwise has or shares: (i) voting power, which includes the power to vote, or to direct the voting of shares; and (ii) investment power, which includes the power to dispose or direct the disposition of shares. Certain shares may be deemed to be beneficially owned by more than one person (if, for example, persons share the power to vote or the power to dispose of the shares). In addition, shares are deemed to be beneficially owned by a person if the person has the right to acquire the shares (for example, upon exercise of an option) within 60 days of the date as of which the information is provided. In computing the percentage ownership of any person, the amount of shares outstanding is deemed to include the number of shares beneficially owned by such person (and only such person) by reason of these acquisition rights. As a result, the percentage of outstanding shares of any person as shown in this table does not necessarily reflect the person's actual ownership or voting power with respect to the number of its shares actually outstanding on March 27, 2020.  As of March 27, 2020, there were 34,837,625 shares of common stock issued and outstanding.

(2) 1,124,500 shares are registered in the names of immediate family members sharing the same address as Mr. Jeffs.

(3) Includes options to purchase 200,000 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $0.10 per share.

(4) Includes options to purchase 1,000,000 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $0.10 per share.

(5) Includes options to purchase 200,000 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $0.10 per share.

Changes in Control

The Company is not aware of any arrangement, which may result in a change in control in the future.

ITEM 13. CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS, AND DIRECTOR INDEPENDENCE

Related Transactions

None of the following parties has, during the Company's last two fiscal years, had any material interest, direct or indirect, in any transaction with us or in any presently proposed transaction that has or will materially affect us, in which the Company is a participant and the amount involved exceeds the lesser of $120,000 or 1% of the average of the Company's total assets for the last two completed fiscal years:

(i) Any of its directors or officers;

(ii) Any person proposed as a nominee for election as a director;

(iii) Any person who beneficially owns, directly or indirectly, shares carrying more than 10% of the voting rights attached to its outstanding common shares;

(iv) Any of its promoters; and

(v) Any relative or spouse of any of the foregoing persons who has the same house as such person.

Director Independence

Quotations for the Company's common stock are currently entered on the OTC QB marketplace, which does not have director independence requirements.  In determining whether any of its directors are independent, the Company has applied the definition for "Independent Directors" set out in NASDAQ Rule 5605(a)(2).  In applying this definition, the Company has determined that John da Costa and Amir Vahabzadeh are independent directors.


ITEM 14. PRINCIPAL ACCOUNTING FEES AND SERVICES.

The aggregate fees billed for the two most recently completed fiscal years for professional services rendered by the principal accountant for the audit of our annual financial statements and review of the financial statements included in our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and services that are normally provided by the accountant in connection with statutory and regulatory filings or engagements for those fiscal periods were as follows:
