This entity was incorporated to be the merger subsidiary for the acquisition of Blockchain Technologies Corporation (BTC).

GAHC entered into an agreement and plan of merger with BTC. Under this agreement, BTC will merge with GAHI Acquisition Corp., and GAHI Acquisition Corp. will be the surviving corporation. Pursuant to the terms of the merger, GAHC will reserve a number of shares equal to 1/3 of the total issued and outstanding of GAHC to be issued to BTC shareholders. Additionally, GAHC will also have capitalized GAHI Acquisition Corp. with $1,250,000 plus an amount equal to an outstanding bridge loan, which amount shall be used for the development and implementation of the Blockchain business and technologies, as well as, the repayment of said outstanding debt. For complete terms, please see GAHC's Form 8-K filed on May 20, 2015 located at www.sec.gov.

BTC is a technology company that acts as an early-stage investor, incubator, and seed accelerator program featuring a number of innovative startups utilizing the Blockchain, the underlying technology of the bitcoin digital currency. BTC currently owns several startups that are operating in the Blockchain technology field.

Intellectual property included in the proposed GAHC-BTC merger includes at least four provisional patent applications reflecting material improvements upon rudimentary Bitcoin blockchain technology in areas such as i) database creation and utilization, ii) decentralized voting, iii) retail affinity tokens or rewards, and iv) the invention of an interactive Internet browser that makes possible user-advertiser affinity tokens or rewards.

The Provisional Patents are:

1. Application No. 62/029,409 filed July 25, 2014; A system and method for database for self-actuating contracts and other data.

When consummated, this deal will mark a significant step in the history of the rapidly growing Blockchain ecosystem by having one of its key players be part of a publicly traded company, GAHC.

In particular, the GAHC proposed acquisition affords GAHC ownership of Blockchain Technologies Corporation's wholly owned technology companies including:

Slidechain LLC: a company that utilizes multiple Blockchains simultaneously, with their backbone being the Bitcoin blockchain;

Digital Assets Vending Inc.: a bitcoin ATM / BTM company whose main product, D.A.V.E. (Digital Asset Vending Equipment), is being developed to be the easiest, most flexible, and affordable device of its kind;

Cryptos: a high-speed, ultra-secure digital currency-trading platform with AlphaPoint, the same backend Bitfinex uses;

Overseas BC Marketing: A company that has entered into an agreement with an Irish gaming company pursuant to which Overseas BC Marketing will market online web-based waging services and products. This platform does not allow wagering from U.S. citizens;

Blockchain Apparatus LLC: a company that uses the Blockchain for an incorruptible voting application and self-executing wills and smart contracts, among other uses.

GAHC Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John S. Matthews said, "I am very pleased with the potential technology acquisition and believe on consummation, BTC and its subsidiaries will add an exciting dimension to the growth of GAHC."

BTC Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Nick Spanos stated "We're delighted with the GAHC proposed merger as it will enable us to compensate developers with a publicly traded stock, and we are further inspired by the knowledge that as a function of this proposed merger, the public can now participate in a company with Blockchain technology.

GAHC is trading on the OTC pink sheets and has been publicly traded since 2011. GAHC holds a number of interests, including Global Elections Services, and Global Arena Investment Management.
