- LINK GLOBAL TECHNOLOGIES BEGINS PHASE ONE OF A NEW BITCOIN ROYALTY MINING PROGRAM WITH 800 MACHINES AND 50 PETAHASH
- LINK GLOBAL PROVIDES AN UPDATE ON THE OPENING 10 MW FACILITY
- LINK GLOBAL EXTENDS LETTER OF INTENT WITH STARCO (“STARCO”) AND PART NIROO SHIVAN COMPANY (“PNS”)
VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, FEBRUARY 22, 2021, LINK GLOBAL TECHNOLOGIES INC. (CSE: LNK; FRA: LGT; OTC: LGLOF) (“LINK” or the “Company”), an innovative power and infrastructure solutions provider for Bitcoin mining and data hosting operations, as previously announced on February 3, 2021, the Company is pleased to announce that it has begun the power and royalty mining program on schedule February 21, 2021, and is planning on 2,600 bitcoin miners for self-mining and royalty share in the near term.
A private, arms-length company delivered 800 machines capable of generating over 50 Petahash (PH), or approximately 0.35 Bitcoins (BTC) per day, at today’s difficulty. The agreement includes a base rate charge for power and a share of the BTCs mined.
President and CEO Stephen Jenkins comments, “this agreement allows LINK to generate revenue in two ways; a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) and a royalty agreement. Our arrangement is attractive for several reasons; the immediacy of revenue with BTC earnings and the stable income from the PPA. Link is very active in its efforts to achieve its stated goal of 1,000 PH, either self mining or royalty sharing, by the end of 2021 and plans further acquisitions of hash power in the near future.” Jenkins goes on to say, “it is a flexible business model that allows us to respond to the changing market conditions. When we originally set up in Alberta in June of 2020, Bitcoin earnings had just halved and the price of BTC was trading between USD $9,000 to USD $10,000. The fluctuations in the key indicators of price, difficulty rate and global hash rate means that all requires flexibility built on low power costs. We believe our business model capitalizes on all of this.”
Under the agreement, LINK will manage the machines, and the private company will send a percentage of the net profit to LINK on a bi-weekly basis. As previously announced, this came into effect on February 21, 2021.
UPDATE ON 10 MEGAWATT FACILITY
Progress has been steady on the opening of LINKs third facility in Alberta, a 10 MW site which is fully subscribed with mining machines and is planned to generate over CAD $350,000 per month in revenue to LINK. The extreme cold weather in early February caused a short break in the construction process but energizing is expected to occur at the end of February. Jenkins comments, “with an overabundance of new machines coming to market in the next 8 months power will be a high priority. Similar to 2017, there are companies with machines and no place to plug them in. We are in an excellent position to capitalize on these opportunities.”
UPDATE ON LETTERS OF INTENT WITH STARCO AND PNS
As previously announced on November 11, 2020, and January 28, 2021, LINK is collaborating on the delivery power in both arrangements. Progress is steady, however the recent bitter cold in Texas and COVID travel restrictions have impacted the site visits and therefore the completion of the contractual arrangements. Stephen Jenkins comments, “Link plans to extend the LOI’s on both agreements as there is real potential for shareholder value. We are in constant communication with the partners on both projects. The executions of both transactions are very viable and achievable in the calendar year extending our business beyond the Canadian borders. We are importing expertise where needed but we are also exporting our own expertise to other countries.”
