HIVE Announces Purchase of 1,000 New Energy Efficient Bitmain S21 Antminers for Immediate Delivery and HODL Increase to 2,070 Bitcoin

Feb 22, 2024

HIVE Announces Purchase of 1,000 New Energy Efficient Bitmain S21 Antminers for Immediate Delivery and HODL Increase to 2,070 Bitcoin February 22, 2024 at 01:05 am EST Share This news release constitutes a "designated news release" for the purposes of the Company's amended and restated prospectus supplement dated August 17, 2023, to its short form base shelf prospectus dated May 1, 2023. Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - February 22, 2024) - HIVE Digital Technologies Ltd. (TSXV: HIVE) (NASDAQ: HIVE) (FSE: YO0) (the "Company" or "HIVE") is pleased to announce the purchase of 1,000 Bitmain S21 Antminers (the "S21"), which would provide 200 petahash per second ("PH/s") of high efficiency Bitcoin mining capacity. The S21 is the newest and most efficient Bitmain Bitcoin mining ASIC system, boasting 17.5 joules per Terahash ("J/TH"). Additionally, HIVE now has 2,070 Bitcoin on the balance sheet as of February 21, 2024. HIVE is continuing its strategic preparation for the Bitcoin Halving event, expected to occur in late April 2024. Rather than expanding our footprint at this time, we are upgrading our fleet with the most efficient machines available, which in turn will lower our average costs to produce a Bitcoin. By upgrading our existing ASICs in our inventory to the S21, we will increase our target Exahash from 5.3 EH/s at 24.7 J/TH by the end of June 2024 to 5.5 EH/s by running only our most efficient machines in our 140 MW of operating infrastructure globally. HIVE believes it is important to stay lean during the Halving, as having low fixed costs, and an inventory of highly efficient ASIC we can run at variable load to minimize variable costs, will allow the Company agility, thus putting HIVE in a strong position to navigate the rest of 2024. In addition, we continue to HODL 100% of the Bitcoin we are mining. With the Halving, the Bitcoin block reward will drop from 900 Bitcoin per day, to 450 Bitcoin per day. With this pre-determined scarcity in the Bitcoin ecosystem, along with the strong US Bitcoin ETF inflows, HIVE believes it is prudent to hold a treasury of Bitcoin on our balance sheet. About HIVE Digital Technologies Ltd. HIVE Digital Technologies Ltd. went public in 2017 as the first cryptocurrency mining company listed for trading on the TSX Venture Exchange with a sustainable green energy focus. HIVE is a growth-oriented technology stock in the emergent blockchain and high-performance computing industry. As a company whose shares trade on major stock exchanges, we are building a bridge between the digital currency and blockchain sectors and traditional capital markets. HIVE owns green energy-powered data center facilities in Canada, Sweden, and Iceland, where we endeavour to source geothermal and hydroelectric energy to mine digital assets such as Bitcoin on the cloud. Since the beginning of 2021, HIVE has held in secure storage the majority of its treasury of BTC derived from mining rewards. Our shares provide investors with exposure to the operating margins of digital currency mining, as well as a portfolio of Bitcoin. Because HIVE also owns hard assets such as data centers and advanced multi-use servers, we believe our shares offer investors an attractive way to gain exposure to the cryptocurrency and high-performance computing space.
