As of the date of this report, the Company has deployed 8,395 mining rigs. Upon deployment of the remaining 3,500 rigs previously acquired, the Company will have a total of 11,895 in operation, bringing its digital currency mining footprint to 17.5 megawatts of computing power.
As disclosed in a press release dated March 28, 2019, the Company announced that it has entered into a Definitive Agreement with shareholders of Digihost International, Inc. whereby the business and assets of the Company and Digihost will be combined by way of a share exchange between the Company and shareholders of Digihost, constituting a "reverse-takeover" of the Company by Digihost under the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Proposed Transaction").
Due to increasing costs of cryptocurrency mining and volatility in the valuation of mined-cryptocurrencies, the hosting expenses paid by HashChain to its colocation facility per coin mined are presently greater than the value of the coins mined. Completion of the Proposed Transaction will vertically integrate the hosting business to be acquired by Digihost with the mining operations of HashChain, such that the cost of mining is significantly reduced.
The Company and Digihost are in the process of preparing required disclosure with respect to the Proposed Transaction, and otherwise working toward meeting the requirements of the TSXV with respect to the Proposed Transaction.
The HashChain Shares currently remain halted from trading and are not expected to resume trading until an information circular in respect of the Proposed Transaction has been prepared and filed on SEDAR, and the requirements of the TSXV with respect to the Proposed Transaction have otherwise been fulfilled.
The Proposed Transaction cannot close until the required shareholder approvals are obtained and there can be no assurance that the Proposed Transaction will be completed as proposed or at all.
Investors are cautioned that, except as disclosed in the management information circular to be prepared in connection with the Proposed Transaction, any information released or received with respect to the Proposed Transaction may not be accurate or complete and should not be relied upon. Trading in the securities of HashChain should be considered highly speculative.
The completion of the Proposed Transaction is subject to a number of conditions precedent (as described in prior press releases of the Company), including approval of the Proposed Transaction by the Exchange and the shareholders of HashChain. Review of the Proposed Transaction by the Exchange remains ongoing.
Neither the TSX Venture Exchange, Inc. nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the polices of the TSX Venture Exchange) has in any way passed upon the merits of the Proposed Transaction and associated transactions and neither of the foregoing entities has in any way approved or disapproved of the contents of this press release.
