NEW YORK, Nov. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Bit Digital, Inc. (Nasdaq: BTBT), a Nasdaq listed Bitcoin mining company headquartered in New York announced that it had entered into asset purchase agreements with certain non-U.S. investors to issue an aggregate of 4,344,711 ordinary shares at the price of $3.20 per share, or total consideration of $13,903,088 in exchange for bitcoin miners.
Once the transaction closes, upon Nasdaq listing of the shares, the total hash power capacity of the Company will increase by approximately 1,000 Ph/s from 1,250 Ph/s to 2,250 Ph/s. The Company commenced the bitcoin mining business in February, 2020. By June 30, 2020, the Company had only 310 Ph/s hash power and by September 30, 2020, the hash power had increased to 1,250 Ph/s.
Also, the first batch of 2,000 M21s previously purchased is going to be shipped to the United States this November and is expected to be installed to the hosting facility by Compute North by the end of December 2020. With more miners being deployed to the North America facilities, it is expected to help the Company rebalance its cost structure and miner geological allocation and further help produce more Bitcoins.
"We are very pleased to announce these agreements to issue shares in exchange for bitcoin miners, which will further consolidate our position among listed companies in bitcoin mining industry in terms of the operating hash rate capacity. The revenue and the number of bitcoins earned of the Company are expected to have a continuous increase in 2020 Q4 with the new deployment of additional miners," Erke Huang, the Chief Financial Officer of the Company said. "The management of the Company will continue to seek to expand the scale of bitcoin mining through the purchase of the most economic efficient miners and diverse our miners' geological allocations to further reduce our utility cost and increase our profit margin. It is another big step for Bit Digital since the spin-off of our prior assets and to focus on our bitcoin mining business. With the extensive experience and highly effective execution under our management, the Company is growing fast and investors should have good confidence in both Bit Digital and Bitcoin Mining industry."
