Vancouver, British Columbia; July 7, 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, today announces that its WOC brand continues to deliver on its early promise as the first BSV blockchain explorer technology providing real-time data in an easy and user-friendly manner.

Developed in the U.K., WOC is the first-ever BSV blockchain explorer, acquired by TAAL in September 2020 as part of its strategic vision to ignite global enterprise adoption of BSV. With over 2,000,000 monthly record page views in May and June and 33,350,000 API requests in June, the WOC website property and system is experiencing accelerating global traffic and transaction demand. This represents a significant marketing funnel for TAAL to channel potential customers either to TAAL Console or to a bulk API sales platform.
 

“When we acquired WOC, it was with confidence in it innovative BSV technology and revenue-channel potential. The increased traffic at WOC and the amount of new data on the BSV blockchain (measured in GB) is real evidence that BSV is starting to show its promise of utility and scalability beyond anything else in the market,”
