SURGE BLOCKCHAIN TO LAUNCH SURGE UTILITY TOKEN ON ETHEREUM NETWORK 

Las Vegas, November 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Surge Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:SURG), announced today that its wholly-owned software and technology subsidiary, Surge Blockchain, has completed development of the ERC-20 Surge Utility Token and has made available free tokens to all who sign up at www.surgetoken.com before the December 15 launch.  

The Surge Token is an ERC20 compliant blockchain asset that can have value, be stored in a wallet, used for transactions and can be sent and received, like Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, or any other digital asset.  

“The technology we’ve developed is soup to nuts, from the issuance of the reward tokens to requests for redemption to transmitting our ERC-20 token to Ethereum.” Stated Chief Technology Officer, John Mott. 

Tokens will be earned through purchases of Surge products and services or through incentivized activities such as automatic paycheck deposits to the SurgePays Debit Card or paying certain SurgePhone Wireless combo specials. Tokens can be redeemed for rewards and or stored in digital wallets. 

The difference between Surge Tokens and standalone currencies like Bitcoin and Litecoin is that the Surge Token will piggyback on the Ethereum network, hosted by Ethereum addresses and sent using Ethereum transactions from a smart contract. 

Surge Holdings Inc. CEO Brian Cox said “The underlying principle to the Surge business model is to drive revenue by bringing products and services to those who might otherwise not have access to them. This fits perfectly into our overall strategic plan for customer loyalty, enhancing the Surge ecosystem and overall corporate valuation.”  

Cox further stated, “By using the Surge Utility Token for loyalty rewards, we will be enabling the 51% of the subprime market to participate in Digital Assets – the future.” 

Additionally, the software system has been designed as a white label token/rewards system so that Surge can offer this technology and software to other companies seeking a turnkey solution for ERC-20 tokens. 

The Surge Utility Token rewards system is slated to launch December 15, 2018. 

Rewards will be redeemed at www.surgerewards.com
