While Block Rewards Will Continue to Drive Near-term Revenue, Metanet Services are the Future

 
Over the last several years, TAAL has built and operated diversified blockchain infrastructure, with over 450 PH/s of blockchain computing power currently online and a goal of 2 EH/s by early 2024. The Company can deploy its blockchain cloud computing power across all three SHA-256 based blockchain networks – Bitcoin Core (“BTC”), BitcoinSV (“BSV”), and Bitcoin Cash (“BCH”) – switching chains economically and dynamically to optimize yield.

Although TAAL has been primarily deriving its revenues from block rewards, the future lies beyond block subsidies. While the Company will continue its blockchain computing operations (a key block subsidy revenue driver in the short to medium term) management has strategically positioned TAAL to capture revenue from BSV blockchain transaction processing fees. As part of this strategy, TAAL has built a suite of software offerings that enable the Company to become a Metanet Service Provider, ensuring additional revenue streams and the long-term sustainability of the business.
 

Moving Toward Becoming the Leading Metanet Service Provider

 
Underpinning the next era of global data commerce is the rise of Web 3.0 and Metaverse applications and a Metanet, a new Internet used as a direct exchange of value. TAAL aims to ignite a peer-to-peer network that empowers organizations and individuals to connect directly with the entities they transact with, removing intermediaries and custodial services. As a Metanet Service Provider, TAAL will help transform the way the world sends and receives value. 

As blockchain enabled applications evolve, TAAL aims to be at the forefront of this new Web 3.0 platform enabled economy. By 2031, there will be no more block rewards for BTC, BSV, and BTC. Plus, continued halving events on these blockchains will also half block rewards upon each event. This model is not sustainable and therefore, TAAL has evolved its business to leverage underlying blockchain utility to collect transaction processing fees. As blockchains are integrated into the next generation of the Internet, these daily transactions could number in the billions to trillions globally.
 

TAAL has Already Been Building for the Future

 
Today, TAAL has dozens of customers spanning numerous industries from Gaming, Internet of Things, Supply Chain to Financial Services – all using TAAL’s blockchain as a utility network. As blockchain technology development continues at a rapid pace and companies develop new tools and solutions for their customer segments, TAAL will derive future revenue as their Metanet Service Provider. 
 

Large Market Opportunity and Robust Funding

 
The Future of the Web 3.0 market alone represents a $81.5 billion market by 2030, according to EMERGEN Research.  The Crunchbase Web 3.0 Tracker already shows 15,366 companies have raised $88B in funding to date, with 79 Unicorns already created. BLOCKDATA notes that 40 companies invested $6B into blockchain startups between September 2021 and June 2022, with Alphabet providing over $1.5B of investments. We are seeing unpresented investment in the application, transactional and infrastructure layers to the Web 3.0 ecosystem and TAAL participates in all three layers of this innovative global market.
