HyperBlock Secures US$3.5M Financing for Next Gen Bitmain Servers

Servers Scheduled for February 2020 Delivery
New Servers to Increase Computational Power at US Datacenter

Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - January 21, 2020) - HyperBlock Inc. ("HyperBlock" or the "Company") (CSE: HYPR), through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Hyperblock LLC, has secured up to US $3,540,000 in financing as part of a three-year agreement that will allow the Company to invest in additional next generation Bitmain servers that are expected to increase HyperBlock's maximum hashrate capacity.

The lender under the financing agreement is Bank of Montana and Bonner Property Development, LLC - the owner of the Company's US datacenter facility - has provided a guarantee in respect of the Company's obligations. The loan is to be repaid over three years at approximately 15 per cent interest and, as consideration for the guarantee provided by Bonner Property Development, LLC, The Company will issue warrants equal to 15 per cent of the maximum principal amount of the loan divided by the warrant exercise price. The issuance of the warrants is conditional on the revocation of the cease trade orders in respect of the Company's securities and the resumption of trading of its common shares. The loan is effective as of January 9, 2020 and demonstrates ongoing support for HyperBlock from local Montana business community leaders.

HyperBlock confirmed that it intends to use the proceeds to place a new order for additional next generation Bitmain Bitcoin servers, which are scheduled for February 2020 delivery.

The Company believes its ability to secure financing despite the ongoing volatility in crypocurrency mining, is attributable to the Company's strong operating fundamentals and strong business partner relationships. In 2019, HyperBlock began 16nm server replacement, and the Company accepted delivery of two next generation Bitmain server orders.

Update on 2019 Quarterly Financials and CTO Status

The Company expects to soon release its Q1, Q2 and Q3 2019 financials, management's discussion and analysis and related officer certifications, together with any other filings required to bring its continuous disclosure record current. As previously announced, the Company will apply to have the cease trade orders in respect of its shares revoked. However, revocation is not expected to occur until the Company's outstanding continuous disclosure filings have been made and an order revoking the cease trade orders is issued and there can be no assurance that the cease trade orders will be revoked. The Company will continue to provide further updates when available.
