Vancouver, British Columbia; March 30, 2021 – TAAL Distributed Information Technologies Inc. (CSE:TAAL | FWB:9SQ1 | OTC:TAALF) (“TAAL” or the “Company”), a vertically integrated blockchain infrastructure and service provider for enterprise, announced today that TAAL is on track to reach its computing power target of securing 400 PH (“petahash”) in computing power by year-end.
This capacity milestone will be achieved despite global pandemic-related supply constraints, validating TAAL’s commitment to being the leading BitcoinSV enterprise blockchain transaction processor, and supporting its long-term vision as a pure-play on the adoption of the BitcoinSV blockchain. In December 2020, the Company announced an overall computing capacity of more than 280 PH. In January 2021, TAAL successfully began its next-generation blockchain infrastructure operations in Alberta, Canada, on schedule.
“Blockchain technology will continue to disrupt industries for the next decade. Developers all over the world are looking for more scale, speed, and lower costs. BitcoinSV delivers all three. I am excited about the many opportunities ahead as we bring BitcoinSV blockchain’s advantages to the enterprise community globally. The record block which the Company has recently processed validates the TAAL market leadership position and further demonstrates our capacity to process a large number of transactions,” comments Stefan Matthews, TAAL CEO and Executive Chairman.
TAAL Processes World Record Block
To cater to the demands of enterprise blockchain adoption, where the business value added by blockchain is projected to surpass $176 billion by 2025 and $3.1 trillion by 2030 (Source: Gartner, Forecast: Blockchain Business Value, Worldwide, 2017-2030), on March 13, 2021, TAAL has processed a world record block of 638MB on the BitcoinSV blockchain network. This achievement outpaces the Bitcoin (“BTC”) network by 638x due to BTC protocol constraints of only 1MB per block, and is a clear demonstration of the superior ability of the BSV network to meet the scalability needs of clients processing transactions through TAAL on the Bitcoin SV blockchain.
Details of the world record breaking block are available on WhatsonChain.com, a Blockchain Explorer service – Block #678301 (https://whatsonchain.com/block-height/678301).
