HashChain Technology Releases Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2018 Financial Results
“In our first full year of operations we have successfully managed to reach our organizational goal of becoming a leader in the blockchain technology space,” said Patrick Gray, CEO of HashChain. “Despite volatility in the cryptocurrency market, the strategic acquisitions we made throughout the year enabled us to significantly grow our asset base and has put us in a favorable position to continue to grow our inventory of newly minted coins.”
- Deployed 5,000 Bitcoin mining rigs.
- Increased total digital currency mining rigs owned to 11,995.
- Increased total coins mined over third quarter production by 68%.
- Recognized operating revenue totaling $2,102,397 from digital currency mining and Dash Masternode rewards.
FY 2018 Highlights
- Generated revenues of $3,369,846 from mining of digital currencies and Dash Masternode rewards.
- Mined over 600 newly minted coins, including fourth quarter production of approximately 400 coins.
- Raised gross proceeds of $30 million of growth capital during the year to finance rapid development and future growth opportunities and investments.
- Through purchases and acquisitions increased the Company’s digital currency mining power in production to 15 MW.
- Net loss of $37,745,973 for the year, including one-time equipment impairment charge of $16.5M and loss from discontinued operations related to the sale of the NODE40 software of $9.3M.
A comprehensive discussion of HashChain’s financials and operations are provided in the Company's “Management Discussion & Analysis and Financial Statements” filed with SEDAR and can be found on www.sedar.com.
- On November 14, 2018, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Global Crypto Public Accounting LTD., the Company entered into an asset purchase agreement to sell its proprietary software and assets related to the NODE40 software platform in exchange for the buyers agreeing to extinguish the US$5,200,000 of loans and convertible loans payable from the acquisition of the NODE40 assets.
The Company continues to execute on its strategy to grow as a market leader in the blockchain infrastructure industry and will increase operations by bringing its digital currency mining footprint to 17.5 megawatts of computing power in the first half of 2019.
The sale of the NODE40 software platform served to relieve the Company of outstanding debt and will greatly minimize G&A expenses going forward, as HashChain reemphasizes its vision of concentrating solely on cryptocurrency mining.
