|Business Combinations [Abstract]|
On March 31, 2017, MCIG acquired software code for a cloud-based social media platform to be known as 420Cloud, which was assigned to OBITX. The Company considers the acquisition of 420Cloud as a purchase of an asset, not a business. In this particular acquisition, the Company acquired software code and supporting functions for five different software packages that had not been finalized, marketed, and launched at the time of acquisition. The Company expects to continue to expend a significant amount of time and capital to further develop the software.
At the time of acquisition, the assets have no operational income and could not generate revenue without major consideration and effort by the Company. The following table summarizes the estimated fair values of the assets acquired and their accounting classifications, at the date of acquisition. We assumed the liability and responsibility to complete the software as it was designed for with the intent to market.
Disclosure of accounting policy for completed business combinations (purchase method, acquisition method or combination of entities under common control). This accounting policy may include a general discussion of the purchase method or acquisition method of accounting (including for example, the treatment accorded contingent consideration, the identification of assets and liabilities, the purchase price allocation process, how the fair values of acquired assets and liabilities are determined) and the entity's specific application thereof. An entity that acquires another entity in a leveraged buyout transaction generally discloses the accounting policy followed by the acquiring entity in determining the basis used to value its interest in the acquired entity, and the rationale for that accounting policy.
