The excess supply of renewable energy in the province of Québec has made this endeavor feasible and a great base for growth.

*The average cost of electrical power required to mine 1 Bitcoin is a non-IFRS financial measure. We calculate that by first isolating the total cost of electricity for the three months ended September 30,2021 included in the Site Operating Costs on the Company’s Condensed Interim Consolidated Statements of Income (Loss) and Comprehensive Income (Loss) for the three months ended September 30, 2021. From the total electricity costs, we isolate the electricity costs related to the operation of the Company’s Bitcoin Miners (excluding hosted miners, Ethereum miners and other non-mining uses of electricity). We then convert that to US$ using the Bank of Canada exchange rate as of September 30, 2021, and divide that by the 20 Bitcoin mined in the three months ended September 30, 2021, as shown in Note 7 to the Company’s Condensed Interim Consolidated Financial Statements. The Company’s calculation of the average cost of electrical power required to mine 1 Bitcoin may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. The Company believes that this measure, in addition to information prepared in accordance with IFRS, provides investors with useful information to assist in their evaluation of the Company’s performance and ability to generate cash flow from its operations. Accordingly, this measure is intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS.

NEITHER THE TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE NOR ITS REGULATION SERVICES PROVIDER (AS THAT TERM IS DEFINED IN THE POLICIES OF THE TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE) ACCEPTS RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ADEQUACY OR ACCURACY OF THIS RELEASE.
