CryptoStar Corp. Provides Update on Operations

TORONTO, Aug. 29, 2022 /CNW/ - CryptoStar Corp. (TSXV: CSTR) (OTCQB: CSTXF) ("CryptoStar" or the "Company"), a cryptocurrency mining and data centre operator, is pleased to provide an update on operations.

Self-Mining Operations

  • As at August 29, 2022, the Company has an aggregate self-mining Hashrate of 94.4 PH/s from ASIC miners and 125,550 MH/s from GPU miners running at its data centres.

  • The 94.4 PH/s and 125,550 MH/s of existing self-mining Hashrate currently contributes USD$332,569 per month in self-mining revenue for CryptoStar. (Source:  https://whattomine.com/ Mining metrics are calculated based on a BTC - USD exchange rate of 1 BTC = $19,813.77 and ETH - USD exchange rate of 1 ETH = $1,447.91 updated at 2022-08-29 11:33:39 UTC).

  • 160 high performance ASIC miners of the previously announced purchase of 600 high performance ASIC miners remain to be deployed. This will increase the Company's self-mining Hashrate from ASIC miners by a further 14.1 PH/s. The Company anticipates deploying these ASIC miners as expeditiously as possible upon expansion of its operations in Quebec, Canada.

Hosting Operations

  • The Company executed a new Equipment Hosting Agreement for one of its award-winning data centre facilities in Utah, USA, effective August 14, 2022, which increased the aggregate monthly hosting revenues earned by the Company by USD$37,000 to USD$177,000 for an aggregate mining capacity of approximately 12 MW (annual hosting revenues of USD$2.1 million).

Expansion in Quebec

  • The Company, through a subsidiary, continues to make progress on its expansion of operations in Quebec, Canada, and on its application with Hydro Quebec to secure an additional 5 MW of power at its data centre.

LOI with Kansas Partner

  • The Company continues to perform diligence on the potential power supply agreement with a Kansas-based energy company as previously announced on February 10, 2022.

Alberta Operations

  • The natural gas power generation site of 611890 Alberta Inc. DBA Avila Energy (the "Alberta Partner") remains shut down. Litigation against the Alberta Partner et al. is ongoing with respect to the non-compliance with terms of the power supply agreement for up to 30 MW and damages arising therefrom.

Future Growth

  • The Company plans to continue to further expand its self-mining inventory of mining hardware. Further orders for mining hardware may be placed using astute capital management strategies based upon prevailing market conditions.

  • The Company plans to continue to further expand its data centre operations in North America by partnering with large cryptocurrency miners seeking operating locations in North America. The Company continues to consider and perform diligence on several potential transactions and opportunities.

Financial Position

  • The Company is in a strong financial position and is well capitalized.

  • As at August 29, 2022, the Company held 555.03 ETH, 80.60 BTC and USD$2.8 million (CAD$3.5 million) in cash.

  • Additionally, the Company has made payments and deposits for buildings and infrastructure equipment of USD$4.2 million (CAD$5.4 million).
