Tess Inc. ("Tess") today announced it has entered into a non-binding letter of intent ("LOI") to merge with Cresval Capital Corp. ("Cresval") (TSX-V: CRV). TessPay is a blockchain company developing a supply chain payment platform for businesses to attempt to guarantee payment on time and in full. After the closing of the anticipated merger, TessPay will be publicly traded on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") and change its name to "TessPay Inc.".

Jeff Mason, Chief Executive Officer of TessPay, stated, "The decision to take the company public provides us access to traditional capital markets as we continue developing our blockchain technology solution. This environment will also foster transparency and accountability moving forward, providing confidence to investors and prospective customers alike."

The blockchain is a decentralized and encrypted ledger that offers a secure, efficient, verifiable and permanent way of storing records and other information without the need for intermediaries. These protocols are the backbone of numerous digital currencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin.
