NEW YORK, April 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Bit Digital, Inc. (NASDAQ: BTBT) and BitMine Immersion Technologies, Inc. (OTC: BMNR) announce the signing of a Letter of Intent to establish a hosting relationship beginning with 7,000 current generation ASIC miners. The final agreement is expected to be completed in the coming weeks. The companies expect to primarily utilize the efficiencies of mining Bitcoin in immersion cooled containers, a process by which the servers run fully submerged in a dielectric fluid that efficiently cools the machines and allows for superior machine output and energy efficiency. The companies have agreed in principle to a mutually beneficial revenue split of the mined Bitcoin, and a multi-year term.
Bryan Bullett, CEO of Bit Digital was quoted as saying “We are happy to begin our relationship with BitMine Immersion Technologies, and have known the team for some time. As a company, we have been intrigued by mining using immersion technology, and we are happy we found an ideal hosting scenario allowing us to utilize the benefits offered by immersion cooling of our machines.”
Jonathan Bates, BitMine Chairman, was quoted as saying- “We couldn’t be happier. Having a marquee client like Bit Digital is exactly why we started the company. We want to serve high quality clients and offer them the best environment for their miners, as well as a superior service experience. We hope to grow this relationship moving forward. Bryan and his team are top notch professionals, and we are excited to get started.”
Bit Digital and BitMine Immersion hope to begin delivery in the coming weeks and months and fill the capacity by the end of August.

About Bit Digital
Investing in Bit Digital’s securities involves a high degree of risk. Before making an investment decision, you should carefully consider the risks, uncertainties and forward-looking statements described under “Risk Factors” in Item 3.D of our most recent Annual Report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020. If any material risk was to occur, our business, financial condition or results of operations would likely suffer. In that event, the value of our securities could decline and you could lose part or all of your investment. The risks and uncertainties we describe are not the only ones facing us. Additional risks not presently known to us or that we currently deem immaterial may also impair our business operations. In addition, our past financial performance may not be a reliable indicator of future performance, and historical trends should not be used to anticipate results in the future. Future changes in the network-wide mining difficulty rate or bitcoin hash rate may also materially affect the future performance of Bit Digital’s production of bitcoin. Actual operating results will vary depending on many factors including network difficulty rate, total hash rate of the network, the operations of our facilities, the status of our miners, and other factors. Additionally, all discussions of financial metrics assume mining difficulty rates as of December 2021 except as otherwise noted. See “Safe Harbor Statement” below.
