Monster Arts is Awarded Winning Bid in Auction to Acquire Url MonsterWallet.com

San Clemente, CA / ACCESSWIRE / August 26, 2014 / Monster Arts, Inc. (OTCQB:APPZ) a leading mobile marketing and app technology innovator, is very pleased today to announce today its successful bid and acquisition of the domain name and url MonsterWallet.com in GoDaddy Auctions.

"We have been watching this domain for more than a year with great excitement, and have identified it as potentially one of the key strategic components of our new business model the acquisition of this very key piece of intellectual property. I am excited to report that we held out and achieved our objective and now, the coveted url 'MonsterWallet.com' is ours," said Wayne Irving, Monster Arts' Chief Executive Officer.

Clearly, and with good reason, Monster Arts sees attractive opportunities for sustained and impressive revenue growth in the area of mobile payments and carrying more of your needed in your phone, and less in your physical wallet or purse. As previously reported by Wikipedia, the total market for all types of mobile payments was expected to reach more than $600B globally by 2013, which would be double the figure as of February, 2011, while the mobile payment market for goods and services, excluding contactless NFC transactions and money transfers, was expected to exceed $300B globally by 2013.  (Wikipedia: Mobile Payment). In addition, the market research firm Gartner expects global mobile transaction volume and value to average 42 percent annual growth between 2011 and 2016, and forecasts a market worth $617 billion, with 448 million users, by 2016. See "Mobile Payments To Reach $616bn in 2016, says Gartner," 5/29/12, Jack Schofield for Jack's Blog.

What exactly accounts for this explosive growth? Monster Arts points to a few undeniable realities facing consumers and business persons in today's faced-paced modern world: (i) the multitude, if not cascade, of cards that we need access to during the day, at seemingly a moment's notice, including credit cards, debit cards, loyalty or reward cards, gift cards, insurance cards, roadside assistance and identification cards (just to name a few); and (ii) the hyper-growth associated with the usage of Smartphones, tablets and other types of mobile communication technologies. 

Indeed, these trends have created a perfect storm for the 'walletized' solutions market and, more specifically, for the kind of mobile information collection and payment solutions presented by Monster Arts' new apps available or under development; "Perfect Receipt" and "Mia" to name a few.  These two products serve an immediate need in today's highly mobile world, where buyer and consumer need to be able to access their vital and important information at a moment's notice, but without the hassle and headaches associated with bloated wallets and loose papers. And these apps not only give consumers more flexibility and choices in terms of how and when they can make purchases, but also empower users by allowing true electronic "portability" of vital personal and business information, whether it relates to the users home, health, car or finances (e.g. insurance). In sum, these apps provide a very practical answer to the dilemma of how to stay organized and prepared in our digital age.

Concluded Irving, "We're extremely excited about our continued focus of entry into this hot sector of the mobile technology market with our versatile and timely new app offerings, each of which will be marketed and promoted under the powerful mantle of the MonsterWallet domain and url. I use my phone for so many things, I would have to call the office to get the details for; now it's all in my phone. And with the cloud, even if I lose my phone or device, its immediately available on my replacement device upon purchase and setup."
