HashChain Technology Reports a 52% increase in users for their Cryptocurrency Accounting and Tax Software Since NODE40 Acquisition

VANCOUVER, May 1, 2018 - HashChain Technology Inc. (“HashChain” or the "Company") (TSXV: KASH; OTCQB: HSSHF) today announced a 52%* increase in users for their cryptocurrency accounting and tax software, Balance, since the acquisition of NODE40 on January 30, 2018. Between February and April 2018, Balance integrated support for the Coinbase and Gemini exchanges, to expand the service to more high-volume cryptocurrency traders.

Balance is Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) that offers cryptocurrency holders a simple and accurate way to keep track of transactions by analyzing the blockchain to report capital gains and losses. Cryptocurrency users can upload data from any hardware or software wallet, as well as their Coinbase and Gemini exchanges. When the user authorizes read access to their transaction history, Balance provides both a high level and detailed summary, including date, time, transaction type, short-term or long-term gains, and price differential. Once the gains and losses are calculated, the software automatically details the information on a worksheet that can be shared with a CPA to file at tax time.

“The recent tax season lit a fire under cryptocurrency holders, who learned the complexities and ROI impact of regulatory compliance,” says Patrick Gray, CEO of HashChain. “With Balance, we have developed a simple-to-use solution that gives users the ability to track gains and losses in real-time to determine taxes owed and help create a more accurate depiction of their total coin profits throughout the year. HashChain is dedicated to continuing integrations with new exchanges and growing the user base even further.”

For a limited time, the Balance solution will be available for free. To create an account, visit: https://www.node40.com/balance/.

*The percentage of user growth was determined based on total users of the platform from January 2018 (720) through April 2018 (1091).  The software in its beta form has been available to users free of charge.
