HIVE announces long-term HPC computing strategy beyond Ethereum 2.0

This press release constitutes a “Designated Press Release” within the meaning of the Company’s February 2, 2021 Supplement to its condensed prospectus dated January 27, 2021.

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / July 2, 2021 / HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (TSX.V: HIVE) (Nasdaq: HVBT) (FSE: HBF) (the “Company” or “HIVE”) is pleased to announce its long-term, high-performance computing strategy beyond Ethereum 2.0.

Ethereum and Bitcoin growth plans for 2021

HIVE’s current Ethereum production is over 3,000 gigahash per second (“GH / s”) and has the potential to almost double by the end of December 2021 after card upgrades of over 5,500 GH / s, and our current bitcoin production is 544 petahash per second, which we expect to double to 1.0 exahash per second (“EH / s”) by early September 2021 and to 2.3 EH / s by Christmas 2021. Based on current ETH and BTC prices and the difficulty of mining, our earnings could be $ 30 million per month once we have all of our machines installed and taken down.

Long term ‘HPC’ – high performance computing strategy

High-performance GPU cards are key to HIVE’s long-term strategy of building ‘HPC’ high-performance data centers whose demand is growing worldwide, while being a more efficient Ethereum miner in the short term and increasing our hash power to get more pure ether produce and HODL these assets on our balance sheet. Over the past year, Ethereum is up 821% while Bitcoin is up 270% and we believe Ethereum could continue to outperform Bitcoin over the next 2 years. The company believes that it will take at least 2 years to prove the proportion of Ethereum 2.0 before Ethereum mining could become financially unattractive. We believe the new high performance GPU cards will remain a robust, expandable technology that can be scaled and repurposed for the game, AI and movie animation boom, making it flexible and profitable for a high performance computing (HPC) data business strategy for at least other is 5 years. The company HODLs its Ethereum in a cold wallet, resulting in a very liquid balance sheet asset. Later in the Ethereum life cycle, we can consider using our virgin ether for additional income.

The story goes on

Ethereum is the backbone of the blockchain Super Growth Wave

We believe Ethereum will continue to be the backbone of this new financial ecosystem. Many believe that Ethereum has already won the race for the foundation of Web 3.0 and Finance 3.0, with the explosion of smart contracts, stablecoins, DeFi in general, and now NFTs for music, arts and sports. Ethereum has become the fundamental base layer for all of these new applications and has most of the developers who build real-world applications based on it. As a result, the network has built a large lead over its competition. Most investors are unaware that Ethereum has significantly more developers built on it than any other blockchain platform.

HIVE understands that we are still at the beginning and that this industry can change quickly. That is why we position ourselves with considerable freedom of choice. We’re increasing bitcoin mining in the cloud as well as our GPU operations. HIVE is currently working on the design for pilot HPC sites in Canada and Sweden and then expects to ramp up our HPC capacity. Today, HPC’s revenues are both a high-margin business like Ethereum mining, but it’s much less volatile than cryptocurrency mining on a quarterly basis.

ESG strategy

We are still exploring green energy opportunities and have turned down financially attractive mining deals because they don’t use green energy. We focus on renewable power sources such as hydropower, geothermal, wind and sun. So far we have only used hydropower and geothermal electricity in Sweden, Iceland and Canada.

About HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd.

HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. went public in 2017 as the first cryptocurrency mining company with a green energy and ESG strategy.

HIVE is a growth-oriented technology stock in the emerging blockchain industry. As a company whose shares are traded on a major exchange, we build a bridge between the digital currency and blockchain sector and traditional capital markets. HIVE owns state-of-the-art, green power data center facilities in Canada, Sweden and Iceland, where we only source green power for mining in the cloud and HODL for both Ethereum and Bitcoin. Since the beginning of 2021, HIVE has kept the majority of its ETH and BTC coin mining rewards safe. Our stocks offer investors exposure to digital currency mining operating margins as well as a portfolio of cryptocurrencies such as ETH and BTC. With HIVE also having hard assets like data centers and advanced multi-purpose servers, we believe our stocks offer investors an attractive way to get involved in the cryptocurrency space. HIVE traded over 2 billion shares in 2020.
