Gopher Proudly Introduces its New CEO

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 25, 2017) - Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: GOPH) ("Gopher" or the "Company"), a development-stage company which specializes in the creation of Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence enabled mobile technologies and distribution is proud to introduce its new CEO to shareholders and followers, in a personal letter from Gregory Bauer:

I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new CEO of Gopher Protocol, as well as a fellow shareholder.

I have joined Gopher Protocol as part of Gopher's recent acquisition of UGO HUB assets.

We are going to be using the UGO HUB assets to create a "store within a store" offering several prepaid and cellular services as well as launching our branded UGO accessory product line for consumers. The assets we acquired provide us with basic infrastructure within 15,000 convenience stores located across the United States with a "heavy presence" in the south east to empower a Gopher network for future product releases.

Before we go into the strategy of the acquisition -- I will describe the parts of my background and experience that I believe will help me to succeed as CEO of Gopher Protocol.

My background includes working in technology and product distribution companies. Most recently growing a distribution division to over $140 million in revenue. In addition, I have had previous successful exits selling companies to large corporations and in the technology information space. I also have experience running public companies, so I am familiar with the requirements.

Based on my experience, I am excited about the opportunities I see in Gopher Protocol to expand the existing technology and take it to market. Let me start by describing the current operations of the assets recently acquired.

The recent Gopher acquisition will be generating revenues as a retail partner of the major telecoms through the distribution of financial products as well as cellular "top-off" cards. We believe this acquisition is a game changer for Gopher with the goal of placing Gopher on the path to a cash flow positive company. In addition, our goal is to provide the Company with more flexibility in developing and deploying its technology portfolio and to take advantage of the disruptive products developed by our CTO Danny Rittman.

Allowing that the acquisition makes sense from a financial standpoint, the beauty of having 15,000 points of presence across the United States will allow us to distribute our internal inventions in those locations, in the future.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, it is our goal to deploy connected devices into those locations to create the radio frequency network that we described in our recent video -- https://youtu.be/9ovYCMHmOi8. This will create the access points to the internet needed by our connected devices which will allow them to connect to the internet with no monthly fees.

To summarize our recent moves:

New CEO with public company experience, investor exits, and building large companies.

15,000 distribution points for our soon to be launched products with access to an estimated 30,000,000* customers weekly. (*http://distributech.net//Demographics.aspx)

I look forward to building shareholder value as we execute on the ambitious plans we have for the future.

Best regards,
Gregory Bauer
