Gunpowder Capital Corp., Provides Another Update On BitBlox Technologies Inc.

Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - December 18, 2018) - Gunpowder Capital Corp., (CSE: GPC) (CSE: GPC.PR.A) (OTCQB: GNPWF) (FSE: YS6N), ("Gunpowder" or the "Corporation") is very pleased to announce that it's investee company, BitBlox Technologies Inc., ("BitBlox"), a leading-edge cryptocurrency technology company, that focuses on both the mining of cryptocurrencies and the development of next generation cryptocurrency technologies, has launched and currently has put online its first cluster Proof of Concept ("POC") Mining Rigs.

As previously stated in the Corporation's October 24th, 2018 press release, BitBlox's early stage POC Mining Rigs have been built around a highly customized GPU based mining card which has been optimized using advanced techniques by BitBlox. BitBlox's advanced GPU card customization efforts along with the proprietary purpose built creation of dedicated mining rigs has now demonstrated in production an increase of hashing capability of approximately 20% over standard specifications, and a decrease of power consumption per GPU card of about 30%.

BitBlox's advanced hardware, and software, customizations stand to position BitBlox's POC Mining Rigs with better hashing capability than industry standard results while at the same time using less power than industry standards, therefore increasing revenue ability over competitors, and at the same time, decreasing the cost associated with delivering that mined revenue.

Currently, and despite the recent downward pressure placed upon cryptocurrency valuations, BitBlox's POC Mining Rigs have been successfully mining with profitability. Advantageous facility costs, inclusive of all required electricity, for BitBlox's POC Mining Rigs supported BitBlox's first release cluster of mining rigs in a profitable mode, with revenue exceeding costs.

The technical team of BitBlox are confident that they can continue customization efforts to furthermore increase profitability for planned deployments of scale for the future.
