New York, New York--(Newsfile Corp. - March 2, 2021) - DGTL Holdings Inc. (TSXV: DGTL) (OTCQB: DGTHF) (FSE: A2QB0L) ("DGTL" or the "Company") has activated a leading software engineering firm, on behalf of its wholly owned subsidiary, Hashoff LLC. The engineering firm has been retained to develop a version 2.0 of Hashoff's social media CMS product suite.

Over the past two months the DGTL Holdings Inc. management team has stewarded a detailed RFP (request for proposal) process and interviewed numerous engineering firm candidates. Post a thorough technical review, several software enhancements have been identified to meet scalability goals and the project has been expanded to a version 2.0 of the Hashoff software.

The most notable software development will be the integration of top video based social media applications into Hashoff's marketplace creation products. Adding top video applications (e.g. TikTok) as core channels on the Hashoff platform will allow agencies, advertisers, and key accounts to create "cross-social" creator campaigns with a much wider reach and a larger and more engaged audience base. From the creator standpoint, this integration will open a new and formidable market for Hashoff and increase overall competitiveness and revenue potential.

Video based creator content is the fastest growing category within the global social media marketing industry. With over 1.5 billion users worldwide, TikTok has grown over 800% since 2018, and is now the most downloaded social media application on iOS Apple Store.[i]

The second technical enhancement identified is a development of Hashoff's administration management platform. The technology currently requires manual processing of creator payments which has been deemed inefficient for the buyer, seller and the Company. Version 2.0 of the Hashoff software will ensure the platform is fully automated and functions on a scalable self-service format thereby eliminating the need for managed service elements, creating heightened efficiencies for customers and improved gross margins for the Company.

Lastly, a technical review of the Hashoff technology also identified an opportunity for increased granularity of creator content. These added product feature enhancements and search parameters will increase effectiveness of client campaigns and overall competitiveness.

Adam Harris, Chief Technology Officer, states that, "as a leading content creation marketplace, Hashoff offers advertisers access to top ranked creators where audiences engage the most. Version 2.0 of the Hashoff #IAM and #Create Marketplace product suite will include a new self-service administrative platform and the integration of video-based applications like TikTok. This is the next logical development for the CMS platform and a vital preparation for long term scalability and a higher volume of user activity."

The software development contract was awarded to a leading engineering firm, scheduled to begin the process immediately, vis-a-vis a three-phase development plan. Regular business service will be uninterrupted, and version 2.0 is scheduled to be launched by July 30th, 2021.
