CEO Comments

"In June, we mined 65.1 Bitcoin," said Patricia Trompeter, CEO of Sphere3D. "Our Bitcoin production decreased in June due to a significant reduction in transaction fees from May and curtailments related to seasonal high temperatures at our Texas and Missouri hosting sites. In June, our hosting site in Texas also experienced operational delays in bringing hash rate online. Subsequently, in early July, another 2,400 miners arrived at our Texas hosting site, which we expect will be energized over the next week, bringing our total hash rate to 1.3 EH/s. Once all 1.5 EH/s are fully operational, we anticipate delivering positive operating cash flows on a run-rate basis at current market levels."
