HENDERSON, NV / ACCESSWIRE / October 1, 2015 / MarilynJean Interactive (MJMI) today announced cancellation of 21,183,000 Common shares representing 10.9% of its issued and outstanding share total and 15.75% of its free trading shares.
As previously disclosed, on July 11, 2012, the Company issued 42,385,500 units at $0.01/unit, each unit consisting of one common share and one fourth of one common share warrant exercisable at $0.50 and one half of a common share warrant with an exercise price of $1.00. All warrants associated with these units have since expired and none were exercised before expiration.
On October 1, 2015 we have cancelled and returned to treasury 21,183,000 Common Shares, pursuant to Return to Treasury Agreements entered into with certain shareholders. The shareholders voluntarily agreed to cancel the shares and return them to treasury for consideration of promissory notes totaling $155,915. The notes are due and payable upon completion of a financing by our company in excess of $375,000.
Peter Janosi, MJMI's president said: "In addition to the over 100,000,000 convertible preferred shares that were cancelled last week, today's share cancellation brings the total reduction to over 42% of the Company's previous fully diluted share total. By significantly reducing the Company's free trading shares, we believe we have further increased the Company's potential to access capital and grow its business."
MJMI is in the business of providing safe and accessible services for the users of Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies.

About Bitcoin and Crypto-Currencies
Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies are a medium of exchange using cryptography to secure transactions and control the creation of new units. Bitcoin became the first decentralized crypto-currency in 2009. Crypto-currency is produced at a rate which is defined when the system is created and publicly known. By contrast, in centralized banking and economic systems, such as the Federal Reserve System, corporate boards or governments control the supply of currency by printing units or demanding additions to digital banking ledgers. However, neither companies nor governments can produce units of crypto-currency and as such the value of crypto-currencies are completely based on supply and demand, free from any governmental control. Many people believe crypto-currencies, and in particular bitcoin, hold the promise of being the most significant advancement in global finance in modern history. The advent of bitcoin creates a secure, easily accessible and transferable transnational currency that is completely liberated from political influence.
Richard Branson, head of the Virgin Group, is quoted on his company's website as saying: "I have invested in Bitcoin because I believe in its potential, the capacity it has to transform global payments is very exciting."
Heavyweight investment bank Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS), announced on April 30th 2015 that it had partnered with Chinese investment firm IDG Capital partners to invest $50 million in a Bitcoin start-up. Numerous high-profile firms have begun accepting Bitcoin as a payment method including: Dell Inc. (NASDAQ:DELL), Dish Network Corp. (NASDAQ:DISH), Expedia Inc. (NASDAQ:EXPE), and Overstock.com (NASDAQ:OSTK).
