Cryptocurrency Stock News: HIVE Blockchain (TSXV: HIVE) Expands Bitcoin Mining Capacity Again With Purchase of 3,000 Next Generation Miners to be Operational in 60 Days to Accelerate Cash Flow

 

Vancouver, British Columbia - February 24, 2021 (Investorideas.com Newswire) HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (TSX.V:HIVE) (OTCQX:HVBTF) (FSE: HBF) (the "Company" or "HIVE") is excited to announce that it has made a further step towards its updated 2021 ASIC capacity goal of 2,000 Petahash per second (PH/s) with the purchase of 3,000 next generation miners with an aggregate operating hash power of 90 PH/s, taking our total future capacity to 1,763 PH/s.

New Miners

With the addition of these 3,000 next generation miners, HIVE's aggregate operating hash rate from Bitcoin mining will increase to an estimated 1.763 Exahash per second (EH/s) or 1,763 PH/s by the end of 2021.

This new equipment is expected to be received and in operation in the next 60 days, delivered in 2 tranches, with 500 miners in March, and 2,500 miners in April 2021.

We remind our shareholders that the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact logistics and the supply of miners from Asia.

Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in such forward-looking information include, but are not limited to, the newly purchased 6,000 next generation miners may not be delivered or operation in the timeframe currently anticipated, or may not have a positive impact on the Company's profitability; the Company may not achieve an aggregate operating hash power of 2,000 PH/s in the timeframe currently anticipated, or at all; continued effects of the COVID-19 pandemic may have a material adverse effect on the Company's performance as supply chains are disrupted and prevent the Company from operating its assets; a decrease in cryptocurrency pricing, volume of transaction activity or generally, the profitability of cryptocurrency mining; further improvements to profitability and efficiency may not be realized; the digital currency market; the Company's ability to successfully mine digital currency; the Company may not be able to profitably liquidate its current digital currency inventory, or at all; a decline in digital currency prices may have a significant negative impact on the Company's operations; the volatility of digital currency prices; and other related risks as more fully set out in the Filing Statement of the Company and other documents disclosed under the Company's filings at www.sedar.com.
