VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 13, 2021 / LINK GLOBAL TECHNOLOGIES INC. (CSE:LNK)(FRA:LGT)(OTC PINK:LGLOF) ("LINK" or the "Company"), an innovative power and infrastructure solutions provider for Bitcoin mining, and data hosting operations.

In an open letter, Link Global CEO Stephen Jenkins addresses recent concerns:

We at Link Global agree with the concerns about "dirty" Bitcoin mining through coal plants. We should all be concerned about the continued use of coal to generate power for any purpose, not just bitcoin mining.

The digital currency system, and the World Financial System, require an immense amount of energy to operate, whether it is banks running computers 24/7 or Bitcoin operations running computers 24/7. The need for reliable energy is endless.

LINK GLOBAL is actively taking steps to forge an innovative way forward by following the 3R's of recycling.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

How do we reduce?

As previously announced Link Global is in a binding LOI for energy-reducing IP that will reduce the consumption of power required by over 25% in bitcoin mining and has application outside of that, in data centers, which consume over double the amount of energy than Bitcoin mining does.

Link is also involved with Neptune Digital to build a hybrid site that profiles the use of Solar, Wind and natural gas to provide a novel solution to the mining community.

How do we reuse?

Link Global reuses old dormant gas facilities, potentially leaking methane into the environment. Methane is a greenhouse gas ("GHG") that is 80 times more dangerous to the environment than carbon dioxide in terms of its GHG emissions contribution.

Beneficial methane destruction has proven quantifiable benefits recognized by agencies worldwide as a viable method to contain GHG's.

How do we recycle?

Link is working on solutions to use waste heat to serve tertiary purposes such as low-grade energy for greenhouses and provide further energy opportunities such as Organic Rankine Cycle electricity. The low-temperature heat is converted into useful work, that can itself be converted into electricity.

These innovations are encouraged by the culture of the bitcoin mining industry. We all have the same goals; clean air and clean water, leading to a new age for digital currency mining.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION. This news release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation. Forward-looking statements consist of statements that are not purely historical and include any statements regarding beliefs, plans, expectations or intentions regarding the future. Often, but not always, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as "plans", "expects", "is expected", "forecast", "budget", "scheduled", "estimates", "forecasts", "intends", "anticipates", or "believes", or variations (including negative variations) of such words and phrases, or statements that certain actions, events or results "may", "would", "could", "should" or "might" occur. Forward-looking statements made in this news release relate to: the intended use of the net proceeds from the Offering; the agreement and business relationship with Neptune, including the operating metrics when fully operational and that the Company will be providing further updates in the coming weeks, and other matters relating to the Company's business plans. All such forward-looking statements are based on factors or assumptions that were applied in drawing a conclusion or making a forecast or projection, including assumptions based on historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments. Since forward-looking statements relate to future events and conditions, by their very nature, they require making assumptions and involve inherent risks and uncertainties. The Company cautions that although it is believed that the assumptions are reasonable in the circumstances, these risks and uncertainties give rise to the possibility that actual results may differ materially from the expectations set out in the forward-looking statements. In the case of the Company, these risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other factors include, without limitation: that actual use of proceeds of the Offering may differ materially from those set out in this news release; those set out in the Company's most recent MD&A, fluctuations in the price of electricity, fluctuations in the price of digital currencies/Bitcoin, the future potential halving of Bitcoin, increases in the network difficulty rate and price of digital currencies/Bitcoin, negative changes in the level of digital currency/Bitcoin rewards per block, the securing of economic rates for the purchase of power, the opportunities for acquiring digital currency mining hardware, unanticipated changes in laws, regulations or other industry standards affecting the business of the Company, reliance on key management personnel, the Company's ability to implement its business plan, litigation risk, stock price volatility, the effects of general economic and other factors beyond the control of the Company, and other matters that may occur in the future. Given these risks, undue reliance should not be placed on these forward-looking statements, which apply only as of the date hereof. Other than as specifically required by law, the Company undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect new information, subsequent or otherwise.
