For immediate release

7 December 2017

ADVFN PLC

("ADVFN" or the "Company")

PlusOneCoin cryptocurrency project

The Board of ADVFN is pleased to announce the first phase of ADVFN's cryptocurrency project which it is developing in conjunction with On-Line PLC ("On-line"), following successful testing within the ADVFN community. ADVFN is today able to offer all its customers and members a PlusOneCoin wallet. PlusOneCoin is designed as a social media cryptocurrency which will allow social media users to interact and "up vote" content of other social media.

The addition of the PlusOneCoin wallet to the ADVFN platform allows customers to deposit PlusOneCoin at ADVFN from the relevant blockchain. Customers will then, in due course, be able to exchange PlusOneCoin for social media items and products on the ADVFN site using PlusOneCoin wallet. PlusOneCoin can be transferred in and out of the PlusOneCoin wallet.

The On-line supported PlusOneCoin wallet brings PlusOneCoin onto the ADVFN platform and facilitates and introduces its large mature user base to cryptocurrency, blockchain mining and other aspects of this emergent sector. The wallet also provides ADVFN users with an educational platform to learn about cryptocurrencies, increased functionality on the ADVFN site as well as the potential of new products. For ADVFN, it creates a larger broader audience for it cryptocurrency information platform and presents additional potential revenue and business development prospects. On-line and ADVFN are each bearing their own costs in respect of the PlusOneCoin cryptocurrency cooperation project and there are currently no financial arrangements between the two companies in respect of this project. However, it is anticipated that On-line will in due course charge publishers like ADVFN a license fee for its software which supports the wallet, on terms to be agreed.

Clem Chambers, CEO of ADVFN said:

"PlusOneCoin has been quickly accepted by the ADVFN community during testing. With the integration of a PlusOneCoin wallet we now have a platform to roll out new functionality and products to the user base while giving ourselves, content creators and our users, powerful tools and new channels of monitisation."

Michael Hodges of On-line said:

"We have progressed our road map to create a content monitisation software platform on top of blockchain with the integration of a cryptocurrency wallet for the ADVFN community. Being able to work in an agile manner with a large established community has provided an opportunity to create software solutions. This underscores the potential of this and other projects."
