Newsfile Corp.

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 10, 2018) - Upco International Inc. (CSE: UPCO) (OTC Pink: UCCPF) (FSE: U06) ("Upco") is pleased to announce it is in the final stages of its highly anticipated release of the Upco branded fully secured communication app. The release will be on IOS and Google play store. Thanks to TestFlight (Apple beta testing platform) we can ensure delivery of a world class app using significantly less data than leading competitors.

With the integration of our advanced Blockchain e-wallet led by a highly experienced system architect and Blockchain specialist, Dominic da Assuncao, we are working to provide our users with an e-wallet that is protected by encryption on your device. This will enable users to transfer funds instantly to family and friends worldwide, at reasonable cost, without worrying about surcharges or any additional charges that might be levied by banks.

Our product supports sending and receiving the complete package of media (text, photos, videos, documents), as well as location and voice calls. Our messages and calls are secured with end-to-end encryption. Additionally, our users' data is not interfered with in any way, or collected for subsequent use of personal identification information, other than for regulatory purposes and account management.

CEO Andrea Pagani stated, "We want to do one thing, which is communicate, and do that very well. WhatsApp has a stronger presence in the Western market. WeChat dominates in China. Our goal is to dominate the European market with a plan for global expansion."

Upco issued 1.2 million options exercisable at $0.20 for 5 years to advisors and consultants.
