VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DMG Blockchain Solutions Inc. (TSX-V: DMGI) (DMGGF:OTC US) (FRANKFURT:6AX) (“DMG” or the “Company”), a diversified blockchain and technology company, is pleased to announce the filing of its 3rd Quarter Financials. This news release should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and MD&A, which are available at www.sedar.com.
- In May 2020 the Bitcoin halving occurred, leading to lower bitcoin block rewards for DMG’s mining operations as compared to the same period in 2019
- Revenue reported for the period Q3 2020 was $1,363,233 with a comprehensive loss of $532,071, as compared to a loss of $2,552,705 in Q3 2019, a substantial improvement
- Revenues do not reflect the 1,000 MicroBT M30S new miners energized June 30, 2020
- General expenses, including operations and administrative costs reduced from $6,665,584 in Q3 2019 to $2,258,593 in Q3 2020 representing a reduction of 66%
- Consulting and Forensics revenues of $345,793 in the last three quarters
DMG’s CEO Dan Reitzik commented, “The past 18 months may have been challenging in the crypto-mining industry due to a significant drop in bitcoin price beginning in December 2017, increased network hashrate, and a reduction in capital investment. However, DMG primarily invested in the infrastructure in our Christina Lake facility, one of the largest in North America, and with bitcoin prices rising again, the future looks bright. Our revenues have traditionally come from hosting third party clients from around the world, but earlier in 2020, based on the increasing bitcoin price and availability of new mining technologies, the Company made the decision to begin upgrading DMG’s self-mining fleet, and to date have added approximately 112 PH comprised of 1242 MicroBT M30S miners and a variety of other miners. The Company’s goal for self-mining remains at 500 PH by the end of 2020, and we hope to achieve this milestone, which would make DMG one of the largest bitcoin mining companies by PH in the world. Manufacturing supply issues, however, and access to favourable financing options, may impede this goal.
DMG continues to work towards its goal of being a diversified crypto and blockchain company and will provide updates to its shareholders shortly on the Wazabi Project, a supply chain platform for the regulated products industry. DMG’s forensic division is growing rapidly and recently completed its sixth consulting project of the year, with many more planned for the next six months. Blockseer and Walletscore continue to be important tools for the Company’s forensics work, and are also a key component for DMG’s comprehensive mining software platform, also to be detailed shortly.
DMG is currently exploring multiple acquisition opportunities specifically related to additional low-cost mining operations, mining software products and new mining technologies. We are pleased with the Company’s current operations and are excited about the future of our increased self-mining capacity and significant technology advances”.
DMG’s COO, Sheldon Bennett, reports, “Bringing our operational costs, especially G&A, down significantly from the previous period has positioned the Company to take advantage of increasing crypto prices.”
The Company will soon announce an investor conference call to provide detailed update on the Company’s operations, challenges and plans moving forward.
