BlitzPredict's World Cup Success, Wimbledon Launch

Success of BlitzPredict's World Cup Prediction Model Sets Stage for Launch of Wimbledon
Analytics

Las Vegas, NV, June 30, 2018 --(PR.com)-- BlitzPredict, a blockchain-powered sports information
aggregator with a focus on sports betting markets, has posted a 29-19 record for a 60% success rate in
World Cup competition to date based on its analytics model. The Las Vegas-based company also has an
MLB prediction model with a 58% success rate (37-27 through 64 plays), and announced today that it
will launch its platform for professional tennis on June 30, in time for Wimbledon.

The 60% success rate in World Cup is impressive given the limited data available on teams that only play
once every four years. The model has been challenged by early matches where one team may either
already be eliminated or set to move on, and motivation factors are impacted. In addition, over the first 48
matches, contests can end in a draw. Of BlitzPredict's 19 losses, eight were from draws. However, the
model has correctly predicted 16 out of the 19 teams that have qualified for the knockout phase.

“There has been a lot of volatility in the early matches as teams with nothing to lose play teams with
nothing to win,” said Brett Richey, founder and CEO of BlitzPredict. “Once we get to the knockout
phase, the effectiveness of our analytics will improve simply by eliminating the draw.”

Providing advanced tools and analytics models for sports and esports bettors, BlitzPredict is the first to
record predictions to the blockchain, time-stamped against true market odds, to provide a permanent,
verifiable record of an expert's success. Blockchain technology allows BlitzPredict to verify the
performance of the experts that it features, eliminating the risk of false claims, one of the biggest
problems facing the online wagering industry.

Tennis will be live in the BlitzPredict platform prior to the start of Wimbledon, which begins Monday,
July 2. The company plans to launch esports ahead of the Dota 2 International tournament in August and
will reveal more about its upcoming NFL platform later this summer.

Users can access BlitzPredict's paid features with XBP, a native ERC20 cryptocurrency on the Ethereum
platform, available at premier exchanges like Cryptopia, Bancor, Idex and HitBTC.
