NextPlay Technologies, Inc. announces plans to introduce a new one. known


SUNRISE, FL, October 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – via NewMediaWireNextPlay Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXTP) (the “Company” or “NextPlay”), a digital business ecosystem for consumers, digital advertisers, video gamers and travelers, today announced plans to create the MedTrek Fund, which is expected to be a blockchain-securitized closed-end fund. The Fund is expected to seek listing on several regulated exchanges after its inception, subject to regulatory approval.

The company has developed a new class of medical devices that incorporate unique geometries and technologies that it believes will reduce the spread of infection.

According to a 2019 report by the World Health Organization (“WHO”), an estimated 7 percent of hospitalized patients in high-income countries and 10% of hospitalized patients in low- and middle-income countries will acquire one or more medical care infections (“HAIs” ) at a certain point in time.

The new class of medical devices to be developed by the fund aims to combine proprietary physical designs and technologies with the aim of protecting patients from the spread of infection and damage from physical intrusion.

The company anticipates that once the fund is established, it will be able to offer infection reduction facilities for four medical asset classes including primary care, tertiary care, long-term care and recreational facilities. The fund is also expected to invest in wellness-focused residential and commercial facilities integrated into the proposed physical and technological layers.

NextPlay is in talks with major landowners in several countries to bring their real estate assets to the proposed fund. These countries, including Thailand, which had the largest share of medical tourism in the world in 2019 (as per the Grandview Research report discussed below), have seen a significant decline in tourism due to COVID-19, but medical tourism is expected to be in the United States robust growth in the coming years. In addition, NextPlay is also in talks with certain medical providers around the world who are interested in providing services in facilities that resist the spread of infection and offer a higher level of physical security.

The Fund’s initial focus is expected to be on Southeast Asia, where we believe such facilities are most likely to benefit from the expected growth in medical tourism. According to Grandview Research, the medical tourism market is expected to grow from $ 44.8 billion in 2019 to $ 207.9 billion by 2027, with Thailand currently having the largest market share.

Bill Kerby, Co-CEO of NextPlay, stated: “The MedTrek token is set to be the first of several crypto-evidenced alternative assets that we are expected to issue through our FinTech division, which includes our indirect stake in Longroot Holding (Thailand) Company Limited owned. We believe that through our efforts to date, we have identified opportunities in medical tourism and its surroundings. We leverage our partners’ deep understanding of real estate development and believe we can help catalyze the growth potential we see in medical tourism through the use of common sense and the latest technologies such as Internet of Things and machine learning. “

The Proposed Fund described above has not yet been established and such formation and anticipated benefits and offers are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties and may not progress as currently expected or on schedule.
