CORRECTING and REPLACING REX Shares and Brian Kelly Announce Partnership to Develop Cryptocurrency ETFs

Please replace the release dated January 3, 2018 with the following corrected version due to a change in the third paragraph.

REX Shares, LLC (REX), a provider of alternatives strategy funds and ETFs, today announced a partnership with Brian Kelly, founder and CEO of BKCM (BKCM) and an investor in REX, to develop a line of ETFs and other funds designed to give investors exposure to the blockchain technology, cryptocurrency, and digital assets sectors.

"Brian is a knowledgeable portfolio manager who uses his platforms, such as his book 'The Bitcoin Big Bang,' to educate investors on cryptocurrencies, the technology behind them and why he believes they are important."
