CTO of Gopher Protocol Talks About Testing Their Guardian Patch Prototype Units; Location Technology That Works With or Without GPS

What's Next?… Upcoming Tracking Contest for Guardian Patch Plays Into Phenomenon of New GPS Location Mobile Apps Like Pokemon Go

PERRIS, CA and POINT ROBERTS, WA--(Marketwired - July 19, 2016) - Investorideas.com, a global news source covering tech stocks interviews Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: GOPH). Danny talks about the recent milestone of completing Guardian Patch prototype units, their location technology that works with or without GPS and the extensive testing program underway.

Danny also talks about their pending consumer contest to locate a Guardian Patch, at a certain location in a certain time, via simply looking at the Guardian Patch APP (no registration required), resembling Pokémon Go, though not virtual… and a chance to win a $500 prize. Pokémon Go, the GPS-based augmented reality mobile game that lets players catch and train Pokémon characters has taken the world by storm. The app has taken over rank of leaders in social media, passing Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat in Google Play on Android devices. Danny is hoping that this new worldwide buzz about GPS tracking apps can build consumer interest for their stick-on tracking device that protects and tracks objects and also potentially saves lives.

Interview

Q: Investorideas.com

Danny can you update our readers on the status and progress of the current Guardian Patch prototypes? For example, what you are tracking and how they are working?

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.

Our Guardian Patch prototype units were completed and successfully passed the initial testing phase. During the next few weeks, we will extend our testing to push the limits of our technology in order to achieve the highest performance. In addition, we are already testing statistical analysis and other data for our prototype units. As a courtesy to the public, our mobile apps are available on the app stores to download, so they can experience our progress. Currently we are tracking vehicles -- among them are cars, bicycles, as well as objects that are not supposed to move… and similar things.

Q: Investorideas.com

How quickly are you retrieving data and location info and is there anywhere our readers can go to your site and get updates on what you are tracking?

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.

The prototype units are tested for Real-Time tracking. The devices are reporting their location every ten (10) seconds so users can view live on our mobile apps. Since we are in intensive testing and constantly releasing new mobile apps, I recommend to re-download your Guardian Patch app every few days to stay up-to-date. As a courtesy, we posted on Guardian's FB page images of the routes used for testing we conducted.

Q: Investorideas.com

How long will you be testing these units and once you are happy with the performance what is the next step to bring the Guardian Patch to market?

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.

We are now in the advanced testing stage that should take about 2-3 weeks. Then we will conduct further testing in larger cities that should take another 2-4 weeks. Within weeks from now we will summarize the prototypes conclusions, finalize our design and start the construction of the final product.

Q: Investorideas.com

Can you quickly explain what makes your tracking technology different from what most consumers would expect based on what is in their car and the GPS tracking being used for Pokémon Go?

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.

Our technology is using GPS services but not limited by it. The main advantage of our system is our own GuardianNet positioning system. This system provides the device's positioning using its own private network which is not GPS based. In the new GPS based game, Pokémon Go, Guardian Patch may provide essential information about the figures, even if GPS services are not available. This may provide an essential advantage for players. Furthermore, since players are being put at risk tracking the characters on their mobile map, Guardian Patch potentially can warn them about approaching roads, railways, dangerous terrain and landscapes. As Guardian Patch can detect location-based and pin-point locations, a potential custom version of the Guardian device will provide better mapping… even for streets which are not on current mapping.

Q: Investorideas.com

Danny, can you tell us about your upcoming contest for consumers to track the Guardian Patch; how it will work and when it will launch?

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.

The contest is called "Find Patch #1". We will have a Guardian Patch #1 car. This car will travel to a specific location carrying one of the Guardian Patch devices at a certain date and time. Users may download our app (free and no registration needed), track the car's location, login to our website/landing page, enter the location and among those a draw for a grand prize will be made periodically. We expect to launch this contest sometime in the upcoming months.

Q: Investorideas.com

Danny can you talk about your personal concerns over the recent injuries of people playing the Pokémon Go game (falling off a cliff and walking into cars etc.) and how you think your tracking technology could potentially prevent similar accidents?

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.

A Real-Time pinpoint location device is necessary in order to prevent players from being hurt. We are working on precise location and recently announced that Guardian Patch LLC -- our JV partner, is currently developing its new Dimensional Positioning System ("DPS"). One of the key components of the DPS system is its multi-dimensional, vector-based sensors, that networks all members through centralized triangulation where each node is self-routing and able to connect to other nodes as needed-even in harsh weather conditions and complex landscapes. Especially when this type of location-based game is in the hands of young children, it is our duty to equip them with another tracking device that will alert them about approaching dangerous situations like roads, railways, terrain conditions and similar. In my vision (as a future product) each player should have a Guardian Patch in the form of a small box (or one can affix the future first generation of the patch to the phone… ). The "GuardianGo" tracks in Real-Time the user's location and is sensitive to dangerous conditions. The GuardianGo will alert the user via a loud audible tone, vibration and strobe-light signal about approaching dangerous situations. But again, this is NOT the current version of the Guardian Patch, it is just an example what GopherInsight™ technology is capable of.

Q: Investorideas.com

Interesting that you bring it up, Danny. Just a few days ago ABC exclusive released a video about "Scuba diver rescued after six hours at sea unfazed by ordeal" (http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-07-06/scuba-diver-rescued-six-hours-sea-unfazed-by-ordeal/7574496?WT.tsrc=Facebook) -- could Guardian Patch assist in a case like that, theoretically of course?

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.

Not theoretically at all -- once we release the product. As you know, the Guardian Patch has a beacon feature -- once removed (pulled off) it will send an SOS location signal (to the registered authorized contact info -- including 911 if permitted by user), until the patch exhausts the battery --- as such, the patch will die -- So Others Can Live.

Q: Investorideas.com

Danny just one last question for our readers -- where and when can people go to register for your contest and is your site set up for potentially thousands of players coming on board?

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.

We will have a special registration page on our web site in few weeks.

About Guardian Patch http://www.guardianpatch.com/

The Guardian Patch (the "Patch"), potentially arriving in consumer markets in 2017, is a unique location technology that works with or without GPS. The Patch is a "stick-on" device that provides its users with the capability to protect and track objects, a loved-one or even a pet, through a mobile application. Download the Patch app, register your patch, and track anything that you own on your mobile device or on our designated website. Register the Patches of your family members and friends to receive alerts in the event of an emergency. Peel the Patch off and the Patch acts as a beacon, sending out a signal and notifying anyone who has registered the user's Patch.
