VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DMG Blockchain Solutions Inc. (TSX-V: DMGI) (OTCQB US: DMGGF) (FRANKFURT: 6AX) (“DMG” or the “Company”), a vertically integrated blockchain and cryptocurrency technology company, has released select preliminary revenue guidance for the three-month period ending Sept. 30, 2021 (fourth quarter). All financial information in this press release is unaudited and reported in Canadian dollars unless otherwise indicated.
Driven by receipt of new crypto miners late in Q4, DMG’s mining capacity increased resulting in an expected consolidated revenue for Q4 2021 to be in the range of $3.5 – 4 million, compared with $1.7 million in Q3 2021, an approximately 50-55% increase quarter over quarter.
The Company expects to file its audited financial statements and accompanying management’s discussion and analysis for the year ended September 30, 2021 during the month of March 2022.
DMG’s unaudited coin production for Q4’s mining operations are estimated to be 47-50 BTC, depending on network difficulty and overall mining hashrate, a significant gain of just under 600% from Q3’s production numbers of 7.16 BTC. As well, the Company estimates an average hashrate ending Q4 of approximately 280 Ph/s, which is a 229% gain when compared 85 Ph/s at the end of Q3.
As previously reported, DMG has ordered 7,850 S19j Pros and 1,800 S19 XPs Bitcoin miners from Bitmain for a total hashrate of 1,037 PH/s. Currently DMG is operating an average of 510 PH/s and has received approximately 50% of its hashrate orders.
DMG’s previously announced Core+ strategy continues to take shape. Its pool services for MaraPool found 181 blocks by the end of Sept 2021 from its start in early Q4. There are ongoing discussions with Argo Blockchain on a planned renewable energy pool for early 2022.
“We are pleased with the change in our strategy, moving from a primarily hosting focused company to greater focus on self-crypto mining. Our first large shipment of new miners arrived late in Q4, and we were able to capture some new revenues from new equipment installed. Our team has made significant progress in both Core mining hashrate deployment as well as Core+ software platforms,” comments Sheldon Bennett, DMG’s Chief Executive Officer.
