NEW YORK, NY - (NewMediaWire) - October 22, 2015 - Global Arena Holding, Inc. (the "Company") (OTC PINK: GAHC), announced today, that its subsidiary, Global Election Services, Inc. ("GES"), is exploring expansion opportunities offering secured blockchain voting applications developed by Blockchain Technologies Corporation ("BTC").
"We have a sizable, longstanding client list, which speaks volumes to the quality and reputation of our elections services," stated Ms. Maralin Falik, President of GES and Chairwoman of the Mediation and Arbitration Division. "Our intended expansion using secured blockchain votingplatforms, however inviting it may be, must maintain the surety of a safe and secure voting process -- the caliber of which GES' team is known for.
"We're confident, that if there is any such technology that can support the expansion of GES and advance ballot elections into a high-tech world, 'the blockchain' is it."
GES, which has been a major contributor to the Company's bottom line, has explored the possibility of expansion through the use of secured blockchain voting applications since the Company began acquisition talks with BTC. Management indicated that growth opportunities are abound for GES, if successfully aligned with BTC, setting the stage for GES to become a leading election management company.
Mr. John Matthews, CEO of the Company, stated, "Ms. Falik has participated in over 7,000 plus elections and processed over 40,000,000 ballots in her 30 plus years of election administration. I believe this affords her some authority to suggest what the future of ballot election services could resemble, with the implementation of the right technology."
"I too support an evolved voting process. Faster. More secure. Accurate. Non-tamperable and foolproof. Most important, 'electronic,' making it convenient and globally accessible. I'm quite positive, there are a many advocates that would agree, if there is any technology that could advance ballot elections into a high-tech world, 'the blockchain' is it."
Executive teams at BTC and GES have already begun conceptually augmenting the process of registered mail ballots, in-person registrations, tabulations and internet voting. With an extensive background in government elections and a working knowledge of elections for Labor Unions, Associations, etc., BTC certainly brings strength to GES family.
Ms. Falik concluded, "The possibilities here are truly amazing! We are firmly committed to delivering secured blockchain voting applications, to the election services industry."
