TORONTO, Sept. 24, 2021 /CNW/ - CryptoStar Corp. (TSXV: CSTR) ("CryptoStar" or the "Company"), a cryptocurrency mining and data centre operator, is pleased to announce that the Company and a Canadian based company (the "Alberta Customer") have executed an equipment hosting agreement (the "Hosting Agreement") effective September 22, 2021 for 10 megawatts (MW) of mining capacity to be deployed in Alberta, Canada. The Company is also pleased to announce that it has ordered 600 high performance ASIC miners from an affiliate of the Alberta Customer, with a total Hashrate of 52.8 Petahash per second (PH/s) to be used for self-mining for the Company.

Equipment Hosting Agreement

Under the terms of the Hosting Agreement, the Company will provide hosting services and infrastructure to the Alberta Customer for 10 MW of mining capacity at its data centre locations in Alberta, Canada.

Highlights of the Hosting Agreement:

  • Annual hosting and power revenues for the Company of up to USD$5.3 million.

  • Initial hosting term of 36 months, with the option to renew for an additional 36-month term.

  • Hosting services for the Alberta Customer to commence in Q1, 2022.

David Jellins, President and Chief Executive Officer of CryptoStar stated, "We are excited that the Alberta Customer has selected CryptoStar as its hosting provider. We are looking forward to providing hosting services to the Alberta Customer and continuing our relationship with their group."

ASIC Miner Purchase

The Company is proud to build upon its relationship with the Alberta Customer through the purchase of 600 high performance ASIC miners. These 600 miners will be delivered in 6 equal tranches of 100 miners during calendar 2022 commencing in January and ending in June. This will increase the Company's self-mining Hashrate from ASIC miners by 8.8 PH/s each delivery month, resulting in a total self-mining Hashrate increase from ASIC miners of 52.8 PH/s.

Once deployed, along with the additional 10 PH/s of Hashrate from ASIC miners to be deployed by November 30, 2021, as announced on September 15, 2021, the Company's total aggregate self-mining Hashrate from ASIC miners will be 103.6 PH/s, representing an increase in Hashrate of 153% from the existing self-mining Hashrate from ASIC miners announced on September 15, 2021.

The deployment of 103.6 PH/s from ASIC miners would generate approximately 21.1 Bitcoin per month based on current difficulty levels. (Source: https://whattomine.com/ Updated at 2021-09-24 11:43:17 UTC).

CryptoStar intends to continue to further expand its self-mining inventory of mining hardware using astute capital management strategies based upon prevailing market conditions."
