From HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd News Release Fri, July 30, 2021

Global Hash Rate

With the addition of the 3,019 high performance Bitcoin miners that was announced on July 12, 2021, and additional miners that have been received since as part of our miner purchase program, we currently have a total bitcoin operating hash rate of 925 Petahash per second (PH/s). This puts us right on track of our previous projections of reaching 1 Exahash per second (EH/s) of Bitcoin operating hash rate in August. We currently project tripling our operational Bitcoin mining rate from here by the end of calendar year 2021, supported by today’s announcement of new miner purchases. From our Ethereum production we currently have an operating hash rate of 3,383 Gigahash per second (GH/s). A number of our dedicated followers and analysts have been converting this Ethereum hash rate into a Bitcoin equivalent hash rate. Based on these calculations our current Ethereum hash rate is the equivalent of a Bitcoin hash rate of approximately 750 PH/s. This equivalent hash rate of 750 PH/s combined with our pure Bitcoin hash rate of 925 PH/s provides us with a total BTC equivalent operational hash rate of 1.675 EH/s (the “Global HIVE Hash Rate”). Our strong Global HIVE Hash Rate is resulting in a daily income of over $550,000, or an annual run rate of $200 million, based on the current difficulty, global hash rates, and Bitcoin and Ethereum prices, with estimated annual expenses of $25 million. As expansion ramps up this number will increase. As always, we caution our investors that Bitcoin and Ethereum continue to have a high daily volatility of plus or minus 6% and investors need to be aware of this volatility.

New Miners

This new equipment sourced from a top global manufacturers is expected to be received and in operation within the next 60 days, delivered in 2 tranches, with 2,000 miners in August, and 2,000 miners in September 2021. “This strategic purchase of equipment was realized as a result of the very strong relationships that our team have with the leading manufacturers in the ASIC miner space.” Frank Holmes, Executive Chairman of HIVE continued, “This transaction is part of our continuous momentum that we have for steady and controlled growth to be the leading clean and green miner in our industry.” Today’s announcement is part of our continuing strategy to increase our bitcoin mining capacity. HIVE intends to continue utilizing cash flow to make opportunistic investments in ASIC and GPU next generation mining equipment that can provide positive gross mining margins.

Expansion Progress

We are making good progress on new data center construction at our New Brunswick, Canada site. Here are some recent pictures of the foundation of what will be a 20-megawatt Bitcoin mining facility.
