TAAL BRINGS ON ADDITIONAL PROCESSING POWER TO SUPPORT THE FUTURE OF ENTERPRISE TRANSACTION PROCESSING

VANCOUVER, BC, Dec. 23, 2020 – TAAL Distributed Information Technologies Inc. (CSE: TAAL) (FWB: 9SQ1) (OTC: TAALF) (“TAAL” or the “Company”) a vertically integrated blockchain infrastructure and service provider, has recently purchased new blockchain computers, which once deployed, represent over 130 petahash/s (“PH“) in additional computing power and will bring the Company’s overall computing capacity up to more than 280 PH.

On November 17, 2020 TAAL disclosed that a hosting agreement had been concluded with a Canadian provider to deploy 175 PH of computing power. This is comprised of 155 PH of previously acquired custom modified blockchain computers and 19 PH of newly acquired machines all of which are expected to be deployed in Q1 2021.

The Company is in discussions with hosting providers for placement of the remainder of the new machines and expects they will also be deployed in Q2 2021.
