VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DMG Blockchain Solutions Inc. (TSX-V: DMGI) (DMGGF:OTCQB US) (FRANKFURT:6AX) (“DMG” or the “Company”), a vertically integrated blockchain and cryptocurrency technology company, today announces the purchase and immediate operation of 2,915 bitcoin ASIC miners, which is an additional approximate 200 PH/s, with a possibility of 2,500 more ASIC miners from the same supplier (totalling an additional 170 PH/s).
As previously announced, DMG is in the process of retrofitting the first 30 MW of infrastructure to immersion cooling (which can produce approximately 1.0 EH/s of Bitcoin mining), to be completed in the first half of 2021 with another 30 MW to follow in the second half-year (totaling 2.0 EH/s).
DMG is currently in negotiations with other leading Bitcoin mining equipment manufacturers for further purchase orders in accordance with its retrofitting efforts, which would allow additional purchases through the rest of 2021 to meet the Company’s hashrate targets.
