MIAMI, FL, September 24, 2018 – Miami-based United American Corp (“UnitedCorp”) (OTC: UAMA) announced today its second quarter financial results and provided a corporate update from management related to its three strategic areas; data centers/BlockchainDomes, fixed and wireless telecommunications and intellectual property related to social media and blockchain technology.
While the Company is actively developing its business plan in all three areas, operations for the second quarter focused primarily on the implementation of BlockchainDomes, which is reflected in its revenue stream for the quarter. Revenue for the quarter is based on 1,000 miners hosted over approximately two months out of a total of 5,000 miners that are being deployed progressively to November 2018.
“We are very pleased with the progress of our operations and the resulting significant improvement in our financial position, as well as our first profitable quarter since commencing commercial operations in April this year,” stated UnitedCorp CEO Benoit Laliberte. “In just a few months we have proven that our BlockchainDome technology works, that it can be implemented rapidly and that it is financially feasible. We are also excited about the next phase of development, which in addition to expansion, will provide BlockchainDome heat to greenhouses and some other very interesting agricultural applications we are working on. We believe this will be a showpiece for the industry for operations and sustainability.”

About the BlockchainDome
The UnitedCorp BlockchainDome was designed to provide heat for agricultural operations using ASIC (application-specific integrated circuit chip) mining operations where efficiency and low-cost operations are a priority. The BlockchainDomes, which utilize a proprietary passive cooling ground-coupled heat-exchanger technology, are particularly suited for situations where rapid cluster deployment is required as they can be erected and commissioned in a matter of weeks rather than up to a year using the traditional “Bricks and Mortar” approach. BlockchainDomes can be configured in a wide range of sizes to service any type of greenhouse operation.
