Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - February 16, 2024) - Tiidal Gaming Group Corp. (CSE: TIDL) (the "Company" or "Tiidal") announces that it has agreed to issue an aggregate of 800,000 common shares (each, a "Share") at a deemed price of $0.05 per Share as full and final payment of debt in the aggregate amount of $40,000 (the "Debt Settlement") for certain unpaid remuneration for services performed by Tiidal's Chief Executive Officer (the "Insider") and a consultant of the Company.

The Debt Settlement with the Insider constituted a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The issuance of the Shares to the Insider, however, was exempt from the valuation requirement of MI 61-101 by the virtue of the exemption contained in section 5.5(b) as the Company's Shares are not listed on a specified market and from the minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 by virtue of the exemption contained in Section 5.7(1)(a) as the value of the Shares issued under the Debt Settlement did not exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.

All securities issued in connection with the Debt Settlement will be subject to a statutory hold period expiring four months and one day after the date of issuance.


Tiidal Gaming is a reporting issuer in the Provinces of Ontario, British Columbia and Alberta and its Shares are listed for trading on the Canadian Securities Exchange under the symbol "TIDL".
