VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / December 16, 2021 / LINK GLOBAL TECHNOLOGIES INC. (CSE:LNK)(FSE:LGT)(OTC PINK:LGLOF) (“LINK” or the “Company”), an innovative power and infrastructure solutions provider for digital currency mining and data hosting operations, announces an update on recent activities with the Alberta Utilities Commission (“AUC”) and other business.
A message from Stephen Jenkins CEO and Director of Link Global Technologies Inc.
LINK management thanks shareholders for their support and patience as the Company works with the AUC to ensure regulatory compliance on all Alberta sites. The digital currency mining market in Alberta is going through a period of transformation. Businesses, regulators and local governments have all been adapting to this rapid growth.
LINK has been transparent with all regulators throughout the compliance process and we have provided all information requested to date. Management anticipates the regulatory process should be completed by the end of January 2022.
While going through the AUC process, LINK has also been actively meeting with senior Government of Alberta heads, elected officials and agencies, introducing the Company and its vision and presenting the opportunity of the digital currency mining markets for communities in the province. LINK has been received positively and management is confident about the Company’s potential in Alberta once the AUC regulatory process has been concluded.
LINK is awaiting final approval from Alberta Environment and Parks (“AEP”) on its Westlock and Kirkwall facilities. The increased regulations for emissions and the upcoming carbon tax in 2023 is also impacting approvals for new mining operations. However, noise measurement and modelling for Westlock, for example, have shown that sound levels are under the maximum acceptable level and all dispersion modelling for emissions were positive.
Throughout this period, LINK has been working with existing and potential clients and partners to come back stronger and better than ever on the two sites. GSV Futures Inc., a subsidiary of North American cryptocurrency mining company, Mission World Group (“GSV”) and a LINK partner, is awaiting regulatory approvals, and we are working with GSV to be ready for implementing the strategic co-mining agreement (see press release dated August 16, 2021). The TAAL Group announced that it has purchased a facility in eastern Canada, which will free up LINK’s capacity for new clients in the future.
As LINK is an early entrant in the digital currency mining market in Alberta, the Company has accumulated know-how and expertise ahead of its competitors. Management believes this know-how will allow for accelerated growth while other new entrants are only starting to understand such issues as emissions standards, noise standards, and expectations of the AUC and AEP. Additionally, the purchase of Clean Carbon Equity (CCE) will further strengthen LINK’s position in the market (see press release dated October 1, 2021).
CCE management is building its inventory of offset tools and plans to have a software version of an NFT ready for the market shortly. This is anticipated to generate revenue for CCE , allowing both rapid growth for the Company and a simple way for both retailers and wholesalers to buy, trade and retire carbon credits in a transparent and immutable manner.
Early in 2022, the Company expects to be operational in both Kirkwall and Westlock. Management notes that the Company has sufficient cash to tie over the Company while regulatory issues are settled. The Company will update shareholders as soon as practical on the progress and rulings. We thank shareholders for their continued support.
