VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DMG Blockchain Solutions Inc. (TSX-V: DMGI) (OTCQB US: DMGGF) (FRANKFURT: 6AX) (“DMG”), a vertically integrated blockchain and cryptocurrency technology company, today announces February preliminary mining results. DMG mined 89.2 bitcoin with 0.88 EH/s realized hashrate. DMG’s bitcoin balance as of February 28, 2023 was 435.3 bitcoin.
New Miner Deliveries
DMG now expects its last batch of 42 PH/s of Bitmain S19 XPs to be delivered in April 2023. Along with additional mine improvements, DMG expects to grow its hashrate to 1 EH/s in April 2023; this is subject to the receipt, installation and operation of the additional miners.
New Infrastructure to Support Future Growth
Additionally, DMG has completed the purchase of air-cooled containers that in aggregate will support more than 40 megawatts of mining. Based on the efficiency of the latest generation of mining rigs, this capacity would support more than 1 EH/s of additional mining. Delivery to DMG’s Christina Lake data centre is now being arranged. DMG CEO, Sheldon Bennett, commented, “Even during the crypto downturn, DMG continues to invest in its future. We do not expect the purchase to have a material impact on our cash position, but nonetheless we are strategically positioning ourselves to be ready to rapidly expand mining capacity, and Terra Pool’s network share, for either the acquisition of additional miners or to provide hosting services at scale.”
Bank Deposit Exposure
DMG has held no deposits with Silvergate Bank, Silicon Valley Bank, nor Signature Bank. DMG holds its cash with large banks ranked in the top 50 globally.
Annual General and Special Meeting of Shareholders
DMG also announces that its Annual General and Special Meeting (AGSM) is planned for the end of May 2023.
